Our second visit and it was fantastic. Graduation ceremony dinner with family and we had a wonderful meal, service, and view. Recommended is the grilled octopus, tuna tacos, grouper entree, and mussels. Looking forward to our next visit.

Excellent service (Dani!) and Mac and cheese! Fried rice and tacos were extremely salty.

The foos on the happy hour menu was fantastic. We are outside, because the inside had a very bad strong smell of mother balls. It was so strong, we had to eat outside. I have been there twice before and never noticed that small before. SO I hope it was a temporary thing.

We went for a graduation celebration and it was lovely! The food was extraordinary and the service was amazing. The ambience was also overall good, we could all hear each other and speak comfortably. The only issue we had is that it was quite hot inside.

Gina was great with our party of 7. I was enjoying myself so much I didn't realize my Shrimp Basket never came. Until my daughter n law said where's your food. Gina went to see where my meal was. Apparently the person bringing our food took my meal to another table. So the other table got a free 17.00 meal that I paid for. Not cool. Because I had to wait longer, I would have thought my meal would be no charge. Overall the food was great.This was our 3rd visit to Sunset Grill.

Savor Sarasota enticed us to try this wonderful restaurant! Usually a special priced meal will mean smaller portions but that was absolutely not true for us! My appetizer of mussels must have had around twenty mussels! The shrimp appetizer was very generous also! Then the entree was incredibly generous! My seared tuna and the Filet Oscar was very large portions! Then dessert! Well that had to go home with us! Lava cake was exceptional! Sweet sunset views and outdoor dining! A truly memorable evening! We’ll definitely be back!
