Ama La Vita 1551 Main St, Sarasota Italian • $$
1551 Main St, Sarasota

“This place was recommended so we thought we’d check it out with some friends. In summary, the food was OK. The noise level was a little high in the dining room. Wait staff very good. Ambiance fair.For appetizers, we ordered And shared the Rice ball, Bruschetta and the PEI muscles. The cheese ball was interesting but for the life of me I could not find any of the meat that said it had. The PEI mussels were undersized, and the white sauce had almost no flavor. Bruschetta pretty average.For main courses, we ordered the Amatriciana, the flounder, the Carbonara, and the grilled veal chop. Portions on all these were good and the presentation OK but not inspiring. The veal chop was a little raw around the bone. Flavors on all were OK.The tables in the main dining room are small and a little bit close as a result of noise level was a little high when the restaurant got crowded. There is a good wine selection, but no spirits.The highlight of the meal for me was the coconut cake for dessert. It was excellent with great flavor.Our server did a good job. She was cordial and attentive, but not overbearing. The food came out after a reasonable amount of time and was warm.With several glasses of wine our bill came out to $258 before tip which I felt was a bit on the pricey side.”

“Michael's on East (MOE) is one of the best fine dining establishments in Sarasota and has been in business for nearly 40 years. Ive been a customer for nearly 30 of those 40 years and despite its maturity, MOE is still hot, hopping and a crowd pleaser for those who enjoy great food, wines and service. During its nearly four decades, MOE has been wowing patrons with its fine cuisine, decor, and outstanding service. Don't be surprised if you see actors, comedians and musicians who might be performing at the Van Wezel during the winter season, sitting next to you because the concierge at their hotel recommended MOE as one of the desirable restaurants for a sensational meal, wine and service. MOE is rich in Sarasota heritage and is the perfect choice to celebrate a special occasion with that very special guest or guests. It's a delight in every way.”

Beso 30 S Lemon Ave, Sarasota Tapas • $$
30 S Lemon Ave, Sarasota

“Perfect addition to the Sarasota restaurant scene!We made it for dinner on a Friday night along with another couple. Parked nearby at the State Street Garage. We were warmly greeted when we arrived. The restaurant has two floors with the second floor overlooking the ground floor dining room and large rectangular bar. The entire first floor is floor to ceiling glass with a great view of Lemon street activities. Nice vibe and it's not overly loud inside.Our Initial seating upstairs was not to our liking (a little closed in) and we were able to move to a table on the sidewalk out-front (which made for great people watching). Although it's on the street the traffic is light and slow and there's pedestrians coming and going. It was also a beautiful evening out.This is a Tapas restaurant and the menu features many different to pick from along with shareable Paella dishes. To start we ordered 4 tapas to share (Pan Con Tomate, Pollo Ajillo, Croquetas, Alcahofas Fritas) and the Mariscos Paella (which takes about 45 minutes). We also ordered a pitcher of the Sangria Rusbusto which has additional 12 yr brandy to add depth to the flavor. Good portion and great flavor for 3 of us that were drinking.The tapas were delivered to the table in sequential fashion which was nice as it gave a chance to try each one with out rushing. The portions were sometimes 3, 4 or 5 pieces so with 4 of we split what what was already portioned out. Regardless, the flavors were all amazing and the portions good for a Tapa. After the initial Tapas and while waiting for the paella we also ordered the Spanish Grilled cheese. It was by far my favorite with the bread crunchy and the melted Manchego cheese and spicy aioli giving it a burst of flavor with a kick. I'd come for happy hour and just get the Grilled Cheese in the future.About this time the hot pan of paella showed up. Nice presentation with the prawns on the top and good depth of flavor on the rice portion of the dish intermixed with seafood. I've eaten plenty of paella and this one was tight up there.For desert we opted to split the Flan. It's made differently from flan I've had in the past. A lot lighter and creamy with a good flavor.About the time we were finishing up the Manager (Ashley) came by to query about our meal. After small talk and her raving about the cheesecake she comp'd us one. It was excellent.Throughout the meal Carolina, our waitress, did a great job. She was very knowledgeable on the menu and answered all our questions. She never rushed us and was attentive but not overly.We had heard a lot about Beso before coming and it exceeded our expectations. The ambiance, service and food were excellent. Kudos to the staff for making our meal with our friends memorable. Not sure who's cooking there but the Head Chef and kitchen staff should be commended for the quality, presentation and taste of everything we had.We'll be back!”

“I gave Shore 4 stars for not for the food but for the atmosphere. It's a sexy cool spot in heart of St. Armand's Circle. The staff was friendly. We went at 2pm thinking we'd missed the lunch crowd. The place was still packed. We only had to wait 15-20 minutes though. Drinks were great, had the Bee Keeper, Barrel Aged Cocktail and Espresso Martini. Started with the Crispy Bao Buns. I got the Tuna Tartare as my entree, hubs had the Faroe Island Salmon, you can see by his empty plate (forgot to take a before pic) that he enjoyed it. The tuna tartare was fresh and light. I feel there is "always something" good, bad or indifferent when dining out. My "always something" for Shore was the crispy bao buns. I know it says it in the name but I think one of the great thing about bao buns is the pillowy goodness and these crispy ones just missed the mark for me. All in all Shore is a great place to go grab a bite while shopping St. Armands Circle.”

“Absolutely delicious, authentic, and incredible Peruvian food. Ken was our host and spoke with so much passion about the menu, it was very contagious. The Fish Ceviche is to die for, and by far our favorite kind of ceviche. We got the Pescado a lo Macho and Seco de Carne. The yellow pepper sauce for the Pescado was perfectly balanced with flavor and the slightest sweetness. The Seco de Carne was perfection, the beef and beans had been slow cooked for hours and melted in my mouth.I usually go for Lomo Saltado (get Lomo if you haven’t had Peruvian before) but wanted to branch out more and this was the perfect alternative.We also tried the Suspiro, which is a small sweet dessert that’s a Peruvian favorite.Overall an amazing experience, I wish I had a second stomach to just keep on eating but I was scared I’d burst if I had any more. We will for sure be back!”

Flobucha 2725 Mall Dr, Sarasota Brewpubs • $$
2725 Mall Dr, Sarasota

“Whatever you tasted before... Flobucha is the best Kombucha you'll ever experience. It's natural and not pasteurized, so all the healthy ingredients are still inside - and it tastes absolutely awesome with just the right amount of fruity taste and sparkle. The 6 different varieties are carefully developed with selected ingredients. I personally love the POG, the Guava Ginger and the Blackberry versions. Like the other varieties, they're topped off with additional herbs, creating a amazing balanced flavor. Flobucha is perfect in the morning for a good start into the day, all through the day as a refreshment and as an incredible alternative beverage for lunch or diner. And fun fact: It's brewed locally with lot's of love and care. Fun fact two: Flobucha is very low on calories, so they are good for any form of diet, too. Go directly to the brewery in Sarasota and you might meet the owner himself, always friendly and caring for his customers and the community, and very enthusiastic with Flobucha. Alternatively, you'll find Flobucha in many restaurants in the area. Ask for it - you will love it.”

“This was our first experience at Amore and we truly enjoyed our evening--the food, the service, the atmosphere and the music by pianist Eddie Tobin. My husband and I shared and enjoyed our first Portuguese specialty (Cataplana Alantejana) which consisted of marinated pork tenderloin with clams, potato and red pepper broth. We also enjoyed a delicious dessert, a cake with lemoncello, and a bottle of Albarino wine. But though the restaurant was full and there was music, it was not noisy like so many restaurants and there was a charm that only happens in a family owned and operated restaurant. Kudos to the owners and staff who meet every request with a smile.Parking: It's a shopping center and at night there is plenty of parking.”

“We went with family while in Sarasota on vacation. The restaurant was not busy at all because the tourist season is starting to wind down which will last only about a month. Staff was friendly. The menu had some great choices. From fish to ribs to fried chicken. All were well prepared and not too salty. Everything came out hot. The specialty drinks were very good too with a good variety. A little pricier than some other restaurants on St. Armand’s circle, but not by much. I highly recommend this establishment for an excellent meal.”

“Great Happy Hour If you can score a seat at the bar or at a table in the bar area and it’s before 5:45pm, you can get a great deal. Drinks, including their house cocktails and most of their wines, are half off. There’s a nice list of small plates at excellent prices that are also available. We started with a couple of good cocktails. Then we shared the delicious happy hour fried shrimp. We followed that with the happy hour mussels—one of the best bowl of mussels I’ve had in a while. It was served with a basket of bread that was perfect to sop up the lovely mussel broth. Next we had the happy hour ceviche which was a generous serving and really tasty. We moved off the happy hour menu to get the Monkfish, which is discounted in the early evening. You don’t see monkfish on menus very often, and this one was very good. It comes with a soup or salad and we chose the delicious clam chowder. The plate it nicely composed with a starch and veg accompanying the monkfish. A shout out to our server, Barbara, who was very kind, helpful and efficient and moved us along at a pleasant, unrushed pace. We enjoyed our dinner very much and we hope to return.”

We chose to try it in the first place because it was open on Sundays and the menu looked very appealing. The chef and servers are great. The pasta (house made) dishes are especially good. There is typically a starter, pasta and entrée special each night. The bruschetta starter is unique, not your typical style, and awesome we get it every time we go. The chef is willing to accommodate a diners personal wants and needs. The portions are a perfect size, not too big and not too small. We haven't tried every dish on the menu yet but those that we've had were excellent. It's a small intimate type of restaurant. Make your reservations early for the weekends because they fill up fast.

The place is packed with tables that are quite small for a party of 4 but I get it…they are trying to serve as many people as possible.

I had the Siesta Key Extravagana. The crab cakes and shrimp were very tasty but the Mahi was a little dry for my taste.
