Anonymous, Party of 6 ordered Seared Tuna, Filet Mignon, Rack of Lamb, Duck and rated the food excellent because, "flavor, preparation and presentation were wonderful." and writes on July 30, 2006, "This restaurant's food has a high WOW factor which should keep it very successful. We make a habit of dining at locally owned restaurants and this one moves up the list several notches after this visit. The steaks, duck breast, rack of lamb were superb, the appetizers (crab cake stack, soup) were excellent, and Blasé can be proud of their martinis (just right). We're thrilled to have found this very laid back Siesta Key dining spot. The exterior doesn't tell you a thing about what's inside, and we found the decor to be interesting and pleasing to the eye. Cheers!"

Anonymous party of 10 had dinner and rated the food very good because, "prompt service, cheerful accommodation of children, attention to details, no problems with orders" and writes on January 30, 2005, "Our second Christmas Eve outing here for dinner, including small children. Both times we had good service, fresh food, timely service. Children were well accommodated for food choices, seating arrangements, and timeliness of food arrival.
Overall a good family experience. Menu satisfied both conservative and more adventurous palates."

Anonymous rated the food excellent because, "Freshness, preparation and taste" Anonymous ordered Tuna, Duck, Chicken and writes on 11/6/2004: "What a pleasant surprise Blasé Café was on a recent trip to Siesta Key. Being greeted by the patron is always a good feeling but Cynthia makes this initial experience delightful. The ambience was superb, the décor, the background music the menu had my companion and I salivating before any food reached the table. Always suspicious of a restaurant’s claim about the quality of the tuna I did order the Sashimi appetizer and the flavor and quality of the fish did impress me. The crab and artichoke appetizer tasted divine and my partner lost more than she thought she would as I frequently leant over the table for yet another taste. The waitress managed to find us a wine that complimented the food and was very pleasant to drink in between courses. “Best duck I’ve had in years” was a phrase heard from the table, cooked to perfection with a delightful sauce, when I go back I will be sure to order this again.
Feeling that a signature chicken entrée had to be sampled was perhaps my only mistake of the evening. Having to compare a very commendable poultry dish to the “Best duck I’ve had in years” was tough. I would imagine if you do not try the duck and you are fond of the original white meat you will not be unimpressed by this tasty offering. Unfortunately, or fortunately if I’m thinking of my waistline my partner and I did not have any room left for dessert. I guess it’s a recurring problem for me especially if the appetizer and entrée are up to par and my experience at Blasé Café certainly exceeded my expectations."

Jim Woodside visited Blasé Cafe on 7/17/2003 and rated the food excellent because, "The seafood was fresh and deliciously prepared." His party of 2 ordered grouper and salmon and he writes, "My wife and I stumbled onto this restaurant when walking around in the Siesta Village looking for a place to have dinner. The small exterior was a little misleading for what you experience when you walk in. The owner/hostess/waitress was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was very inviting and eclectic. But the highlight was the food. It was incredible. We will be returning on our next visit to Siesta Key -- hopefully soon! I had pistachio crusted grouper with a light white wine/butter sauce. My wife had a salmon fillet that was baked with a basil chipinade (sp) coating and a white wine/butter sauce. Both pieces of fish were cooked perfectly -- not overdone, which many restaurants do with fish. Served with both meals was mashed potatoes infused with rosemary and roasted red pepper puree. For dessert I had one of the best pieces of Key Lime Pie I've tasted in Florida. All in all, an incredible meal. I highly recommend it."

Rocco Carlile writes: "A charming little place with some of the best food in Florida. The service was excellent and the chef/owner took the time to say hello and share his mom's black bean soup recipe. I have personally recommended this restaurant to at least 8 of my friends and without exception, every one of them expressed the same opinion. I love Sarasota and hope to retire there someday. The Blasé will be my second home next to the beach and the golf course!"
