Stopped in to the shore diner while walking around the circle. Great location upstairs, great outdoor patio to watch everyone outside. Food was really good, I had the tuna, the duck fries were incredible. Service was good and the wine was delicious

We met up with friends at Armand Circle and they took us to Shores for dinner! Fun, upbeat restaurant!! Good cocktails and excellent food selections. My husband tried the swordfish special which was excellent!! My seafood Cobb salad was extraordinary!

I've been here many many times and keep hoping for improvement. Alas, it's never going to happen. this is a cool and upbeat place to meet for drinks. But their drinks are REALLY stingy. I sent back a martini this evening because I couldn't even taste the vodka. I'm feeling ill from the mussels. The food at this place is... More

We had high hopes for dinner and hate that we wasted a meal here. They had a very interesting menu with several options that sounded like they had potential. Unfortunately, when your food comes out undercooked, you never really get a chance to enjoy it. They offered a house ground Shore Burger that sounded great. The burger came out raw.... More

Very nice atmosphere for a restaurant in Florida....more upscale than most. They have some really good menu options here. The service was great and so were the views from outside. We enjoyed the calamari, sangria and fried chicken.

I wanted to try the Shore Diner--it looks kinda cool from the outside, and we planned a date night there. The ambience is very nice. My compliments end there. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't good. We were there for an early dinner, at about 5:30. They weren't crowded, had plenty of staff around, yet service was soooooo slow. In... More

Someone has said 'excellent fine dining', that person either need to get out more or has a low expectation of fine dining! Having said that, the restaurant is pretty good, but over priced and a teenie weenie bit up itself! Our waitress was v friendly tho a touch slow, which was OK by the way. The food was better than...

We enjoyed great service and very good food. There were many interesting options on the menu. The kale salad was a favorite. My cocktail was not memorable but the food was. Loved the retractable roof. The restaurant was bustling and noisy but had good energy. Will be back.

This fun establishment sits atop a boutique and is way more beautiful than you would imagine. We sat inside and outside and both are really pretty. The location right in the heart of Downtown Sarasota is very attractive, and the food and drinks they offer make it a must visit. We enjoyed everything we ordered, and the cocktails and wine...

Great location, elegant modern and breezy architecture. Attentive service, good food. Although food alone would not make this a five-star place on my list (due to some inconsistency, though nothing was "bad") the overall experience is clearly worth the visit. Also, dining is remarkably affordable here.
