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 The view is superb, the food is delicious (especially the Eastern Shore Benedict for Sunday brunch) & the service (kudos to our server, Melissa who was friendly,efficient & genuinely seemed to enjoy her job) was spot on. We were on vacation & thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Ophelia's starting with the complimentary Mimosas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Food was good with a variety. I had sea bass it was dried out and the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen. The other guests has triggerfish and it was delicious. We reserved our evening via open table. When we arrived we were told it was the wrong Ophelias but they were extremely accommodating in finding us a table. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Atmosphere is always nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Food was great. Service was not good. Server was preoccupied with something, we sat twice waiting with empty drinks for a long time. It wasn't just our server; table next to us had the same experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistency of food and service as well as convenience to us. Csaba is the best; we always ask for him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from food was wonderful, as was our waitress. Unfortunately, it took 2 hours from the time we ordered our food until we got it! There was obviously a problem in the kitchen. The manager apologized profusely, and treated us to dessert ... which went a long way to making up for the long wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food quality and presentation was excellent. Waiter was excellent. Other than there being several tables with a lot of small children, the entire experience was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The food was wonderful but since they specialize their menu daily they did run out of some things.
