Mellow Mushroom Sarasota - The Story
The restaurant’s design is a nod to 1960’s Sarasota. Retro-inspired doors with circular glass panels open to reveal an interior themed around “Fantastic Creatures”. The focal point of the restaurant is a bold floor-to-ceiling mural featuring three people wearing animal masks. The bright, modern color palette from the mural extends throughout the space and to the rest of the space. The exterior of the restaurant is painted in beach colors with a cool, modern twist.
Finally had an opportunity to stop in. It was lunch and I was alone without the wherewithal to take leftovers so pizza was out. So I ordered a sandwich and, for one dollar extra, got the tots instead of a bag of chips. A mere dozen tots, deep-fried instead of baked, is most definitely not worth the added charge or calories. The sandwich was very tasty, if a bit smaller than expected. The wait staff was almost overly attentive, stopping or passing by 5 times in 30 minutes. Just wanted to eat my lunch. The decor, with the signage on the table and at entry, gave off an unexpected sports bar feel albeit one with better food promised. I look forward to trying the pizza at some point in the future but will need to be in the correct frame of mind first. And I'll not be alone. Update to follow.
First time here. Atmosphere were cool and bright. Wish the drinks were stronger. The Thai dye and great white pie was so good. The small were big enough to finish alone with no appetizers. The spinach and artichoke dip was so rich and cheesy. The bread alone was even good.
I have been here several times and the food is always great. I have tried several menu items and have never been disappointed. My favorite is their veggie calzone. It is generous in size with just the right proportions of everything. I typically am a wine drinker but recently tried their sangria. I will definitely order it again. Something always important to me is cleanliness, and bathrooms in particular. This bathroom is clean and stocked. In the past we have always sat at a table and have had great wait staff. Attentive. Patient. Recently we sat at the bar, and the bar tender was slammed but still took the time to answer our questions and be attentive. Definitely a favorite place for food, service, and atmosphere.
The wings were pretty basic, it didn’t sit well with me afterwards. The purple reign sangria Hennessy was good- there’s always a first time for everything since this is new to the drink menu. Spinach artichoke is always going to be a good appetizer. Overall, service was great.
Early dinner. Fast and fresh. Delicious pizzas. Had the house, veggie and shiitake. All fabulous but everyone was trying to grab the shiitake. We also enjoyed the peach tea and strawberry lemonade. Loved it.
