Our waiter was very fiendly, cheerful and attentive. The location is really nice, sitting right on the bay. There is a nice new dock for people with boats. Nice coices on the menu. We each loved our dinner

We booked a sail boat at the end of the pier and we ended up at this local and cozy favorite. Our Concierge at Long Boat Key recommended this place and it was just what our trip was missing. The fish was fresh and tasty....More

We had a delicious watermelon salad and a huge, well-constructed Cobb salad served by a cheerful, efficient server, Lauren. I'll repeat that experience again soon! But what happened to the fish tacos?More

Me and the family went on recommendation and I have to say the starters, oysters, seated tuna, calamari and clam chowder were the best we had ever eaten. Add in the setting over looking the bay and the great service we had a perfect experience

We had the best seat in the restaurant--right by the bay where we could watch the boats going by, the birds, and local fishermen. And we were extremely lucky to see a rainbow that evening! Our waiter was fabulous and put up an umbrella over...More

Unfortunately the county nor the city has a defined ordinance regarding doggie dining and we cannot take the chance on one customer putting our health certificate in jeopardy. So sorry because we love dogs!

Description
Enjoy a delicious fresh Florida seafood meal inside the quaint dining room, on the outdoor covered deck or under the ancient Buttonwood Trees overlooking picturesque Sarasota Bay. Farm to fork, gulf to table and pasture to plate. It's waterfront dining with a unique atmosphere. Leave a dollar bill on the wall and a little bit of your heart to find on your return visit. Voted #1 place to Dock and Dine with our own private 14 slip dock. There is no place quite like the Mar Vista for real Florida dining.
