Selva’s Nuevo Latino cuisine represents the marriage of exotic flavors from Latin America and the United States. Our special emphasis on Peruvian dishes recognizes the contribution of Asian immigrants to Peru, who deliciously fused their cuisine and techniques with that of the locals.
Selva offers innovative, intricately prepared dishes, plated and presented as works of art. We’ve earned raves from all over the world, including from the New York Times, which said Selva is “serving possibly the best food in Sarasota,” and that “everything on the menu is worth trying.”
Dining at Selva
Selva is famous for our ceviches de la casa, each with its own distinct character and flavor profile. Our rich selection of appetizer entradas and saladas pique the palate. And our entrees range from the finest frutas del mar to such favoritos de la tierra as lamb, pork, beef and veal, prepared with exotic salsas, herbs, fruits and vegetables, presented exquisitely.
To accompany your dinner, select a glass or bottle of wine, or try one of our signature cocktails such as our Mojitos. Our extensive wine list includes selections from around the world, including a reserve section featuring hard-to-find and older vintages.
Dine inside or out, until 11 p.m. on weekdays and 1 a.m. on weekends.
Our lounge moves to a Sarasota-meets-South-Beach kind of beat. Custom cocktails, a late night menu, and cushy couches make it a lively destination for foodies and fashionistas alike. And, if you crave entertainment past midnight, our DJ spins on weekends until 1 a.m.
Sunday through Thursday: 5:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Friday and Saturday: 5:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m.
