Lively and casually sophisticated Libby's Cafe + Bar has won over the hearts and palates of Sarasota diners and visitors since opening in October 2008. Its Modern American cuisine includes creative Asian and Italian influences with small and large plate options. Whether it’s enjoying a Happy Hour special, lunch, Sunday Brunch, dinner or a special occasion event in the private dining room, value, quality and service consistency is paramount for this family owned café that thrives on genuine hospitality.

The Sea Porch restaurant is the ideal place for a "Seaside Chic" oasis for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Chef de Cuisine, Jose Cuarta, ensures fresh catches, comfort food and local coastal flavors that cater to all appetites. Some of our favorites include Tostones, West Coast Conch Chowder, Roasted Gulf Grouper, and many more. Savor some of Chef's regional chutneys, salsas and specially made mojos which add some spice and pizzazz to each dish. Guests can choose to dine inside under the oversized skylight or outside under the swaying palms and take in the serene Gulf views.<br />Groups can enjoy the Gatsby private area with sliding doors, making it even more exclusive for functions up to 30 people.<br />

"For such a lovely location, the outside dining setting is not very well decorated.
Someone should spend some time looking into what could be a lovely space."

The Bijou Café, located in the heart of Sarasota’s prestigious Theatre & Arts District since 1986, is one of Florida’s best known restaurants. Chef-owner, Jean-Pierre Knaggs and wife Shay, welcome guests with genuine hospitality and unparalleled service. Chef Knaggs, renowned for his sophisticated innovative cuisine, brings a passion for cooking to breath-taking new heights! For more casual fare The Bijou Cafe offers a lighter Bar Bites Menu in the “Gossips Lounge”, or outside on the Patio, the place to be for seasonal al fresco dining. An award winning, value based wine list and a dazzling collection of imaginative cocktails fulfill even the most ardent imbiber’s desires!

Ophelia's on the Bay is one of Sarasota’s premier fine dining waterfront restaurants. Enjoy beautiful vistas of Little Sarasota Bay, from the floor-to-ceiling windows that line the dining room. Or join us for al fresco dining on our open-air patio, as the dolphins and manatee swim by. Winner of many awards both locally and nationally, including an Excellence rating from Zagat as well as being listed as the number one restaurant in America in Power and Motoryacht Magazine for dock and dine. Ophelia's on the Bay has also been voted most romantic, best waterfront and best restaurant with a view by its loyal customers. The menu changes nightly using fresh and seasonal ingredients, fresh fish flown in from all over the world and specialty meats. There is certainly something for every palate! We feature an extensive wine list, specialty martinis, as well as a full bar. Family owned and operated for over 22 years, we have an experienced staff that prides itself on exemplary service.

"Cold, greasy and limited selection - not worth $27.00
Breakfast items especially bad.
We will not return."
