Great Meal at Selva in Sarasota

Thanks to those on the boards that recommended Selva in downtown Sarasota. We were at a conference at the Ritz Carlton and had dinner one of the nights at Selva, a few blocks walk from the hotel.

We started out with great Margaritas....had a shrimp ceviche that was wonderful and enjoyed both entrees....a great new york strip steak with truffle french fries and a skirt steak churrasco style with plantains to die for. The service was professional and efficient.

We were too full for dessert so I can't comment on that. I highly recommend this restaurant, and the next time we are in Sarasota, we will be back.

Thanks Chowhounds.

  1. So glad that you enjoyed it. It really has excellent, very well prepared food, and the presentations are fabulous. Plus very good service. He started in a tiny restaurant in a strip mall, and due to everything that I just mentioned has succeeded in moving from small to big, which has been the death of many restaurants in Sarasota.
    Like you, I have never been able to try the desserts, too ful!
