Our group of 6 ate in the Bistro area..by choice. Excellent service..no pressure and not in your face service. The bistro menu was very good..and you could still eat off the regular menu as well. The presentation was picture perfect for each dish. The appetizer of crab cake was the biggest hit...at $13.00 one of the best I ever had.... More

As you approach Roessler's, you will be a little apprehensive as it sits a bit off Tamiami Trail in Sarasota. But once you get inside you will be very pleased with the atmosphere, service and food. I had the French Onion soup, outstanding. Then did the Weiner Schnitzel Holstein. It was very good. Having lived in Germany for eight years,... More

We have been to this restaurant many times over the past few years. This visit was disappointing. Starting with the hostess who was not friendly. The waiter took 25 mins before he came to take our order for dinner after he brought us our drinks. The food was good but not great. Our orders were mixed up. Because of the... More

Four of us dined at Roessler's Restaurant last night. it was the best dining out experience i have had. The appetizers, Escargot and Lobster Bisque were a joyous treat for our taste buds. The entrees, Steak Diane, Snapper Ponchatrain,and Rack of Lamb were all superb. The staff was excellent and the restaurant grounds a joy to wander around. Some might... More

A friend visiting this area asked me about this restaurant and I wasn't aware of it. We checked Trip Advisor and were very encouraged by the reviews. The reviews were right. This restaurant is excellent. The surroundings were also beautiful - we were there after sundown and the landscape lighting on their property was something to see!! We had great... More

Amazing restaurant, off the beaten path. Plenty of parking, outdoor seating, pub is more casual with ability of ordering from both menus. Very attentive wait staff and excellent food.

We love Roessler's! We usually go for special occasions, but have been getting there more often, because the food, service and atmosphere are wonderful. Tonight our waiter was Ted and he was very helpful and attentive even though he was very busy. We never felt rushed. We sat in the fireplace room (also our favorite). The chicken was so light...

This was our first does it to Roessler's, and we will be back. Spectacular attention to detail in service, food quality and presentation. Expensive and well worth the price. Excellent wine selection.

I had not been to this restaurant in years- it was just not a convenient location. Then I moved and started hearing good reviews so I went there with a group of six. The setting is a huge surprise - really lovely! Small bar and three dining areas, one of which can be used for a private party. We dined... More
