I have bought flowers from Edie a number of times such as for mothers day and housewarmings. I have found their selection to be quite large and the staff friendly and willing to help. The flowers themselves are usually quite fresh as well. The flowers are quite expensive, but this is something which is true at most florists, flowers often cost more than you expect. However, compared to other florists in the area, they are not priced badly at all.
PROS: Great fresh selection
CONS: a bit expensive, but not compared to others
We recently joined this club and have so far found it to be very nice. The staff which show you around and teach you where everything is are very nice and helpful, and they really help you learn about the place without being pushy to "make a sale". There are a few restaurants, a gym, driving range and so on offered. The gym is extensive and very clean and tidy and the restaurants are good and quite well priced.
PROS: Very nice
We also went to Grannys while looking at scooters and mopeds but their selection was really only minimal. Their location is right accross from mister moped, but Grannys specialize in motorcycles a lot more. As well as selling motorbikes they also sell various accessories, clothes etc. The staff were nice if a bit brusque, probably because they saw that we were not necessarily interested in what they specialize in, but still no reason to be a bit rude. However, maybe you would have a better experience if you were shopping for motorbikes
PROS: Good selection of motorbikes
CONS: not great for mopeds, staff not great
We went to Mister Moped looking for a Moped or a Scooter as a form of quick easy transport. We found it to be a nice friendly place. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable in telling us about the different models and letting us size up and sit on each one. They handled us in a very "no pressure" manner, and really seemed as if they were just trying to help you out instead of trying to sell you something.
PROS: Great for Mopeds and Scooters
CONS: Doesn't sell anything else (good and bad)
I went to these guys after somehow getting an ear infection. The lady which helped me was very friendly and knowledgeable about the situation and as well as helping me out with the ear infection, gave me some general advise about caring for your ears/ making sure that it doesn't happen again. The place was clean and quite convenient as well, it being located in a strip mall. It was however quite pricey.
PROS: Very good care
CONS: quite pricey
I used these guys to do some passport photos for me. Overall it was a good experience, the man who helped us was knowledgeable and friendly. The photos came out quite nicely, they were clear and quite good. However, they were a bit expensive for my liking. The location in Sarasota is great though, meaning that the store is nice and convenient. I also had a look at their cameras which appeared to be a decent price for a brick and mortar store (probably cheaper online though.)
PROS: Good staff, good work
CONS: a bit pricey
I have had good and bad experiences with these guys. My first experience was much like the other reviewers, a poor finish of the job which meant that I had to take back the car later for them to touch up. My second job however (I used them as although previously it was not a great job, they were one of the cheapest in the area) was actually very good. Therefore, I have mixed feelings about them. The staff are quite friendly and helpful and it is nice and convienient, being on tamiami trail
PROS: Some good experiences, good price
CONS: bad experience
We hired Lighthouse Electric for a couple of jobs, they fitted a ceiling fan in a bedroom and also fitted spotlights at the front of our house. These jobs were very good. However, more recently, we hired them to fix some timers and they failed miserably. They said that they were fixed but they were not, and still did not manage to fix the problem when we called them back out. For other recent jobs they charged a lot and did not get results. This seems to be a downward trend in their work, a real shame.
PROS: good previous work
CONS: bad recent work
We used Hughs for a couple of things and had conflicting experiences. We had them re-gravel our drive and found them to be very good. The work was of a high quality and they were attentive and helpful. We also hired and fired them from doing gardening work for us because the quality of the work turned out to be quite poor.
PROS: Good for individual work
CONS: not for contracts
The food at Picasso is OK but a bit expensive. However, there is very little atmosphere here. The waitstaff are OK but can be a bit rude. Also, there is an extensive wine list, but in my experience, many wines that we have wanted have been unavailable. The dcor in the restaurant is quite nice, but often it is very empty, contributing to the lack of atmosphere.
PROS: OK food
CONS: No Atmosphere
