We waited 10+ minutes for water. Then 10+ minutes to order. Appetizer was decent. Entre was pretty good. Probably wouldn't return.

First visit to this chic Sarasota restaurant but we will be back. My wife and I shared the tomato salad which is small but very tasty with multiple flavors. Have no fear though the remainder of the meal was plentiful. My wife had the skirt steak with plantains. Perfectly cooked with excellent flavors. I had the Paella which was superb.... More

We stayed at the Ritz. Walked downtown to dinner almost every night. With the exception of Mediterraneo they are all good. The exceptional one in our opinion was Selva our waiter was Blake, he was amazing. The food was so good we went there twice

A lot left to imagination. It could br that the night was busy snd all cooks on the run but my wife's Paella and my 'Saltado' were nothing as it should be. Waitress service only worth mentioning. Not going back.

Our hotel recommended this place as well as many locals that we spoke to during our stay. Extensive Ceviche offerings and imaginative starters. One of the best house salads I have ever had! Large dinner menu of both seafood and beef. Ahi tuna special was delicious, my friend had the Mahi and ate every bit. Service was top notch. Reservations... More

Selva grill has an extensive menu and seems to do all of it very well. We went to dinner with several friends. Each ordered something different. Each was prepared beautifully and the food was excellent. My wife and I shared a salad. Plenty of food for both of us. I had the flank steak, my wife had the red snapper.... More

The review is actually a 4.5. Pricey and being it can be noisy during peak times it loses a half star. Ok now to the place, very well trained service staff and reallllly good food! (try the white fish) Some outside seating available. This is the best place to go when you're downtown Sarasota, a must try.

I had a business dinner here last week and particularly enjoyed it having been to Peru , This restaurant reminded me of the cuisine that i really enjoyed. I made all of my guests start with a traditional pisco sour, perfectly prepared. This is a must. We then had various ceviche's for the table. All were very good. Highlights were... More

We enjoyed the best steak and fish dinners at Selva. Our meals were prepared and presented superbly. The entire staff was great and the atmosphere/ambience so beautiful. This is a must stop for anyone in the area!
