Arts & Eats Restaurant and Gallery Ratings and Reviews
What a great find in Bradenton! We met friends here for lunch the other day and are so glad that we did. The ambiance is (in a word) unique with funky art on the walls and a casual atmosphere. Service was outstanding and the food was beyond delicious! You must try the stuffed dates (we ordered ours without pistachio) - they were so delicious that we ordered them again and had them for dessert. Parsnip soup with caviar and a beet salad rounded out my meal - all four of us had something different and shared across the table. Cannot wait to go back.......
Nice little restaurant, that was evident especially when we arrived and upon ordering we were told that the main special for the evening has all ready sold out. Service was adequate but not impressive. Food was good but not noteworthy. The noise level was only heightened because the tables are so close together. Not saying I will be back but i not going out of my way to eat there either.
This was my second visit (first was about 5 months ago). Food was just as good as I remembered, but that was ironically a "double-edged sword": The menu was identical to my first visit, including the specials, which was a bit of a disappointment.
The dishes on the menu are very inventive, so I had looked forward to new ones to discover. All in all, though, still a great meal and at low prices for what you get.
Made a reservation a couple of weeks in advance & and asked for the porch, when we got there it was full. Noise level inside is too Loundy with the music to have a conversion. I had fish special and asked how it was prepared and told to look at the menu at the other fish.was done. The fish was so seasoned with soy that the delicate flavor was lost . This was third time there and each got more disappointing
