Description: "where Only The Freshest Fish Arrive, To Be Dined Upon"
Reviewed 10 March 2017

My husband and I dined at Off the Hook with a friend and we were all delighted. They offered several choices of fresh fish, and you select how it is prepared from about 12 options. We each tried a different preparation and they were all excellent.

We chose the option for a $24 bottle of wine (priced as such with 2 or more entrees). It was a nice wine for the price.

We did wait a while for our entrees to arrive but the atmosphere was comfortable, and we had some tasty rolls while we waited.

Off the Hook has been are go to restaurant for the past 3 years, however this year there is something different. My usual mussels were mediocre at best and fish dishes that were always excellent - just ok. Please.....we need you to be better!

Had dinner there again tonight and it was delicious. It's my favorite spot in Sarasota for calamari. Others in our party were equally pleased. Only downfall is the noise level. Not enough in the interior design to absorb the various sounds.

After hearing several people rave about Off the Hook, I was looking forward to its offerings of fresh fish paired with my selection from their various presentations. I knew I would rely heavily on the waiter. I'd heard how knowledgeable the wait staff was in helping to guide
selections. Our waiter must have been new as he kept having to ask others for answers to our questions. My entre arrived after everyone at our table had eaten. Others' pairings of fish with suggested presentations were ordinary at best and the wine recommendation was just mediocre.
I doubt if any of us would want to return.
