What a great gathering place on a weekend. We were here for business and had dinner at the Tommy Bahama restaurant on the 2nd floor. Great atmosphere and views.

We had a family reunion in Sarasota, Florida and all of us enjoyed St Armands Circle. It is beautifully landscaped and planned with numerous restaurants and shops. There are reasonably priced and very expensive restaurants - just depends on what you are looking for. The shops are the same way - some very exclusive and some fun and meant for... More

Have been to St. Armand's many many times and no hurry to return. Very over priced food, clothes and shops. Once is really enough, no reason to go back.

If you visit Sarasota you must visit this place. Good restaurants, shops and cafeterias around a charming circle park. It is the tourist point in Sarasota.

We stay at Suntide on Ben Franklin drive, so the circle is a pleasant walk away. Some of the shops and restaurants are a little pretentious, but if you look you will find something for all. The easy going atmosphere is very welcome.

Located on beautiful Lido Key, "the Circle" is chock-full of enticing shops and dining opportunities. Everything from clothing, high-end to tee shirts, and jewelry, from trinkets to gorgeous gems, awaits your perusal. Accents for the home entice. Dining options are varied as well, some thing for every palate. The "hub" of the circle is a lovely green area, offering a... More

Not a good place to be unless you have "deep pockets". The traffic is horrible and everything is VERY overpriced. Just drive through and say you've done it.
