Went to lunch with a friend yesterday and was VERY happy with what I ordered. We were eating light so I had only the veggie egg rolls and they were delicious--and the sauce was excellent! My friend had the fresh basil rolls with shrimp and crab meat. She loved every bite. In fact, this is her go-to restaurant for dinner as well. Our total bill was less than $10! Two thumbs, err...forks up!

C'est la Vie ! is an authentic french bakery and cafe. C'est la Vie ! exists in main street sarasota but the The new “C’est la vie” will open in the Shoppes at UTC, the same products will be sell and the same quality will be held ! The only differences is that we are going to be open for dinner and we will propose you a few specials to enjoy, and on Sunday we will offer you great brunches !
We have been here for breakfast and lunch but never dinner. Tonight we tried the dinner menu and it was like being in Paris only better. My wife had French Onion Soup and I had the house salad that was packed with meat. Their vinaigrette is the best.
For entree’s, she had the Salad Lyonnaise and I had the Parisian chicken, both outstanding. We were so full from the generous portions, there was no room for dessert. Simply terrific.

Plenty of seating in the restaurant. Large menu with lots of selections. Some Scottish based food (Shepard's pie) to burgers. The food was very good. Would return here.

We didn't eat in the restaurant but we're staying at the Hampton Inn across from Valentino's so go the large Visaggio Pizza to go. When we walked into the restaurant it was very crowded and noisy. The restaurant really could use some sound diffusers to quite the place down. We placed our orders to go at the counter and the girl at the counter was very nice and took our order promptly. Once we got the Pizza back to the hotel we opened the box and the Pizza looked good with sausage and other meats and vegetables but biting into it it did not have much flavor. The sauce was bland and the taste was not much to write home about. Crust was good but overall the Pizza was just ok. I'd try this place again to try one of the Italian Dishes they have.

My husband and I had an excellent breakfast here after area friends recommended it. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, the atmosphere bright and cheery. We had very typical breakfast dishes and enjoyed all of the food. Prices were moderate, parking was easy.

A breakfast and lunch place serving American favorites with a rustic twist. An extensive menu with something to suit all tastes. Beer, wine and mimosas available to compliment the menu. Family and dog friendly.
Went there for the first time with other 4. Everyone enjoyed the good food and Jill, our waitress, was really good, quick, friendly, fun! The huge parking lot right in front of the restaurant is great, although you might still not find spots if you...MoreThanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review. Appreciate the information you shared. You will help others make the right choice when they are searching for a new breakfast or lunch place. Cheers!

From France to Florida ... Paris Bistrot is an authentic French bistro like in Paris ! Over 27 years of experience they are serving crepes (sweet or savory), salads, sandwiches, quiches at breakfast-lunch time and dishes as Beef Bourguignon or Pork tenderloin in black pepper and Cognac sauce directly from Grandma's recipes book for diner. Don't miss out the weekly specials and the delightful desserts what makes the dinner even more unique. For a romantic and intimate diner or a nice gateway with friends, Pierre and Christopher will be glad to welcome you !!
Each of us ordered something different, and it took a very long time for our food to arrive. None of us said "Wow!", and at these prices you should really love the food. The ambience is nice, and the server was professional.

My husband and I went here for lunch. We were promptly greeted and seated. It was a nice day so we sat outside, and we enjoyed the nice breeze and watching all of the people walking by. Emily was our server, and she was very good. Hubby and I both ordered the fried shrimp platter; he ordered fries and baked beans as his sides, and I had garlic mashed potatoes and cole slaw as mine. We also ordered a cup of clam chowder to share before our meals. The clam chowder was very good - not the best I've ever had, but I'd give it a solid B. Our meals were also good. Our shrimp, while a bit smaller than what we get closer to the Gulf, were tender, crisp, flavorful, and were fried perfectly. Hubby's fries, while obviously fresh-potato-cut, were cool on arrival and very tough to chew. His baked beans were good and had a BBQ flavor. My potatoes were also very good, as was my cole slaw. Overall, it was a good meal, but not what I'd consider outstanding, and we both thought it was pricey for being a chain in a sea of true local Florida seafood places. I really wanted to order the king crab legs, but I thought they were terribly expensive, especially for a chain restaurant. Our main complaint was the time it took to get our meals, when the restaurant was not that busy. Service was very SLOW from order to arrival. I would expect that if they were very busy, but they were not.

Established in 1996, Another Broken Egg isn't your typical breakfast, brunch and lunch place. Our menu is second-to-none, loaded with fresh ingredients and creative recipes across a wide variety of breakfast classics, memorable brunch dishes and lunchtime favorites.
My husband had a proceedure in the morning so we were looking for somewhere he could get some scrambled eggs and came upon this place. We went in and told them we were in a hurry as he had another appointment he had to get to around the corner. We sat there forever and finally the waitress showed up. Glad we were in a hurry. Who knows how long it would have taken otherwise. This place was not busy at all as it was between meal times. My husband ordered coffee, plain scrambled eggs, no potatoes or meat, and an English muffin and I ordered sausage, eggs, potatoes and toast with no drink. The potatoes were deep fried, but just barely, and the sausage was the worst I have ever had. It says homemade on the menu and if so, they need a new recipe. Neither of us could eat it. Our bill was $20 for this and certainly way overpriced. We had to catch a different waitress to pay as ours had disappeared. No way would we ever go back.

We came for a birthday breakfast with four adults and two kids. Great service. The place was packed and people were waiting at the door. Kids both had Mickey chocolate chip pancakes. We had an assortment of egg specials, biscuits and gravy, chicken biscuits and gravy (HUGE!), and fried okra. All were large portions and prepared very well. We were very pleased and will be back.
