I love this place. Paul Mattison is a Sarasota treasure always putting out quality food. This location has something for everyone. You can have a delicious traditional dinner with a bottle of wine OR sit at the bar. Great bar menu. Happy hour specials AND always great piano entertainment.

We had the most fabulous time here tonight! Erlinda is the best server we have ever had. We ordered the salmon and the filet. Best meals ever! The lime infused rice and the asparagus were delicious! Live music and great atmosphere for a Friday night out.

How terribly sad and disappointing this meal was from start to finish. For $100 we will stay with Michael's on East, Sensa, Mozaic but will not return here. White pizza doughy, like white bread undercooked. The fish with risotto was dry, tasteless and overcooked! The risotto was tasteless, small portion and tiny lobster bits overcooked for $30!

My husband and I wanted to find a place for lunch and stopped here. We were surprised how nice it was. Our waiter was as good as any five star restaurant we have eaten. The menu was truly amazing!!!

Great restaurant! Music in the lounge 7 nights a week beginning at 6 p.m. Menu is very versatile and you can't go wrong. We've tasted many of their specialties and have never been disappointed.

Let me start with the positive. I had the reconstructed pot roast and it was incredible. I could have eaten 2. My salad was very average, nothing special. Our server was great and she was very attentive. There was another server with the table across from ours that was very rude and he was talking about people in the restaurant... More

I had French Onion soup and a house salad. I loved the French soup and have eaten it many places. This was outstanding. My husband had the duck pizza and was a little disappointed. He said it wasn't ducky enough for him. Overall we would for sure go again. House wine was pretty good.

For the evening you wish for more formal dining including real table cloths. Had the steak and enjoyed it with the accompanying "sides." Service was good and the food well prepared.
