Loved this place, The food was great and the staff was really nice. It also stayed open much later than a lot of the Sarasota restaurants.

Went for lunch while on road trip and was pleasantly surprised with great service and good food. Went early for lunch at 11 and the place was packed by time we left at 1. Had 2 for 1 on wine orders. Ordered blackened fish sandwich which was great. Even had grouper which was not on menu but server offered. Also... More

This was the first time I ate at a Geckos restaurant. The food was hot and delicious. Our server was very informative and friendly. Our food arrived in a timely manner.

I was never a big fan of Gecko's, as the food and ambience consistently leave much to be desired. However, I stopped in last night for drinks after having dinner at Barbosso's (which is a short stroll away). The bar was a total MESS (with dirty plates and glasses everywhere), the toilet was broken, etc... The bartenders were at least... More

What can I say about this local gem? Two for $5.00 all day happy hour draws a nice crowd! I always start with blue cheese chips they are just devine and more then enough to share! I've enjoyed many dishes here but my all time fav is the blackened chicken (I sub chicken for shrimp) flatbread. So grab your friends... More

Was on the West Coast and grabbed a bite at Gecko's before heading back to the East Coast. We had the gator bites for a starter and they were just OK. The batter and sauce made it, not much gator meat nor flavor. We both had the Bison Burger and it was OK as well. It looked like to was... More
