Hummus type menu you pay more for fancy names and I mean alot more. Small crowded and noisey. Menu was not my fare. Better places to go for much less. Scenic neighborhood all done with bright colors to try for a artsy place.

Hi and thanks for checking out Arts & Eats. We consider ourselves a gourmet restaurant, and not a cafe with just hummus types of foods. We're highly rated on Trip Advisor and other internet travel and review sites for our world class cuisine that is carefully and freshly prepared by Chef Jim Copening. Our prices reflect the high quality ingredients... More

We were quickly welcomed to the quaint little restaurant. Every dish had the perfect amount of flavor and portions. You know when dining here that everything is fresh and carefully made. Service was excellent. We'll return many times! Music was great too!!

Went with our friends and had a great experience. It was a very small and artsy eatery with a delicious menu. The chefs creations were very tasty and left you wanting to taste other dishes. There were two men playing guitar and singing. They added to the nice atmosphere

After reading reviews, I decided to take someone to celebrate their birthday. Place is cute, funky and definitely unique. Space is tight, so not a good place to go if you actually want to have a conversation with your dinner guest since you hear all of the conversations around you. We ordered the hummus appetizer, which was very good...it's hummus,... More

Sorry you were disappointed. We wish you would have said something so we could have seated you elsewhere (away from the music) and fixed the meal issues. Thanks for the feedback. More

We like to come to Arts and Eats for dinner. You never know what the chef will be offering - but it's always good. It's in an old house painted in rainbow colors, which looks totally normal in the neighborhood. It's real. It's fun. It's good. Don't miss it.

Went on a Monday night to hear the live jazz using an on-line discount coupon. The music was perfect for background ambiance. My boyfriend and I ordered the lamb special which was delicious and very flavorful. It was downhill from there. We also had the seafood tagine. When I saw the tagine being brought out by our server, I was... More

We always regret when guests don't have the 5 star experience of the vast majority of our customers. We're glad you enjoyed the lamb. The seafood tagine dish, although served in a Morroccan vessel isn't intended to be a Morroccan flavored dish (the lamb is). Most guests absolutely love it. Maybe you felt it was bland because you were expecting... More

We decided to try Arts & Eats on a Monday when they feature live jazz from 6-9 and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The menu is not extensive but there are a wide variety of choices plus a few specials. I chose the lump crab salad which included fresh asparagus, sliced avocado and tasty orange tomato on a bed of... More

We met our friends at a half-way point for lunch yesterday (they live in Clearwater and we live in Punta Gorda) at this gem of a restaurant and have to say it was SO worth the drive!

My husband and I had our first meal at the lovely Arts & Eats restaurant in Bradenton. The food was layered with addicting flavor! We started with the parmigiano rice balls on top of pesto - yum!

Description
Arts & Eats Restaurant and Gallery, located in the center of the Village of the Arts in Bradenton, Florida, features an international menu created by Chef Jim Copening, and broken dish mosaics and jewelry by Donna Slawsky. Dine on the enclosed porch or main dining room of the newly remodeled 1920s bungalow, on the front lawn, or in the shaded backyard "park" graced by a huge banyan tree. Donna and Jim have created a colorful restaurant and gallery that is casually elegant with an emphasis on great food, international flavors and lots of love. We also cater events.
