Highlights

Ophelia's on the Bay is Sarasota's finest waterfront restaurant now in it's 23rd season. The low profile of the building gives you eye-level views of Little Sarasota Bay framed by tropical vegetation, a water lily pond with a bronze fountain and flower gardens. It is Florida the way it should be, without glitz, just a grand view of an unfettered sweep of water, mangroves, seabirds, and an occasional boat or dolphin gliding by. You may dine in one of two glass walled, casually elegant dining rooms or outside on the dockside open air patio.

Ophelia's food has evolved over the years into a blend of cuisines and influences mixing new world with old, American with Asian, Italian with Floridian. Our chef is constantly researching and creating new dishes for the menu. We print our menu nightly using the freshest local fish and produce available. Our pastry chef has brought us to a new level, bringing home first place in the Taste of Sarasota fund raiser for our local food bank.

Ophelia's is also known for its evolving American cuisine style that is creatively combined with other world cuisines. Combining local fresh seafood and fine meats with Florida grown produce, Ophelia's offers a menu with a distinctly New World flare that changes nightly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife & I had had a great first experience at Ophelia’s on the Bay with my brother and his wife this evening. Annette, our server, was very professional and accommodated our every need. The food, atmosphere and first class service were excellent and greatly appreciated by our party, and we look forward to returning again on our next trip to Florida.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The wine list and the menu listed on their website is woefully out of date. Our desired wine and food selections found on the website were not available nor listed on the menu or wine lists at the time of our visit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evan, the bartender & also our server took excellent care of us. The lobster bisque was so creamy with just a touch of sherry. Our entrees (The Parisian Benedict & the Prime Rib Panini) were flavorful & the portions were such that we had leftovers to bring home. The pastry table topped off a delicious meal served beside little Sarasota Bay. We will definitely be back
