Pleasant All Around!

This was our first visit to the Bodhi Tree; it won't be our last. We ate lunch on the porch under a fan' The atmosphere was delightful. Service was efficient and friendly. We both had the Contadina sandwich based on being told this was the most popular one on the menu. It consisted of grilled chicken, sauteed mushrooms, grilled onions, and fontina cheese on pita bread. We chose the egg salad as the side. All the food was very fresh and delicious.

Hidden Gem!

We discovered this place during a recent trip to Sarasota and what a hidden gem. We enjoyed a lovely lunch in their garden and enjoyed it so much we came back 2 days later for dinner. Both experiences were amazing. Delicious food (Eggplant for dinner, salad for lunch), nicest owners and the settling is just lovely. We will be returning a few more times before we leave. Also a really nice wine selection at a good price so a great meal at a good price.
