Dinner at Mar Vista is an event. Located on the bay, you can drive there in your car or boat. You can dine inside if you must but you can also sit on a covered patio. Better yet, snag a romantic table on the the...More

Outside seating for this restaurant sits on the beach and mostly under trees. Sunday brunch was relaxing and so enjoyable. The “4” rating is not for service which was super. The food was good but lacked enough over the top moments to win a “5”....More

Used to be one of our favorite places on Longboat Key, but the food quality has declined continuously over the last few years. This summer was the worst experience so far. After sending back my hamburger twice, it still came back totally overdone. By then...More

We received excellent service and our meal was delicious! We sat outside at the best and most romantic table which was at the edge of the water. Will definitely return if we are again in the area.

As others said, we stayed outside under the gazebo and enjoyed the pretty Waterview. We never ventured inside.

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.
