    good, I got the special which was Grouper and two scallops, the Scallops were delicious but the Grouper was dry and tastelss. I wasn't impressed, infact was dissappointed. In the past I have been very happy with the taste, quality and quanity of the food. We have a lot of business visitors who stay Downtown so the location is great to meet for Lunch and Dinner. This was the first meal I have had here that I wasn't impressed. In the past it has always been very good!

    We found this restaurant through Open Table and wanted a location not far from the Mahaffey where we headed after dinner. Our meal was surprisingly good as we had no expectations but were pleasantly surprised. The prices were reasonable as well. The decor was very attractive. We would definitely return to 400 Beach.

    For years we have come downtown to the farmers market, browse the shops and enjoy a meal. There are so many choices and have always been happy. We always noticed the 400 on our way home and remark that we needed to try it, this time we remembered it was there and went. It is absolutely beautiful inside ,remarkably clean, the large windows make for such a lovely atmosphere and the food is equally enjoyable. We were with a group where everyone had something different and all of it was appetizing to look at and I did not hear a single complaint. Our server, Dayna, was very relaxed and happily answered all our questions, the orders were delivered and she remained attentive filling our drinks etc. I will absolutely be coming back to the 400!

    We have visited 400 Beach for several times for anything from special occasion dinners (Mother's Day) to date night dinners and family meals but went to Sunday Brunch for the first time in August. Even though the restaurant was packed and the buffet atmosphere very busy, the service was wonderful as was the selection of food. As someone who can't eat eggs - I was thrilled with all of the choices. The peel and eat shrimp and crab legs were my favorites - the guys loved the omelette and carving stations. Great Bloody Marys and delicious Desserts! Great food at a great price. We will be back!

    Roaming through St Petersburg last minute and found this nice restaurant next to the chuhuly museum. Our waitress was excellent, funny, up beat and totally awesome. Food was great too. The salad Louise (seafood salad) was full of real crab meat and baby shrimp, crisp lettuce. Crab cakes were also an excellent choice. If you are around the area, dont forget to drop into this excellent eatery, nice place to have dinner and a nice stroll around the area after.

    I always visiting a Steve Westphal establishment. He seems to know how to make them work. 400 Beach is that way, too. Good food, martinis and especially the early dining specials. The valet parking is required due to lack of on street parking along Beach Drive. The restaurant was not full in the late afternoon but was filling up as we left.

    This is not my first time at this restaurant, and I find it to be consistent and good. The food is the highlight here- with the seafood being very fresh and well prepared. The service always seems disorganized, but not really bad. If they could get the level of service up, this would truly be a 5 star restaurant.

    We've dined at 400 Beach several times for both lunch and dinner. Food is very good, but service was a bit slow our last early dinner before a concert. The cuisine is good, but not off the charts. This is a safe spot for those who like fish and seafood, as the menu has a sufficient number of choices.

    First time to this restaurant.and I must say I was very surprised how good the food was.i had the seafood fettuccine witch was very good.my wife had the scallops with chorizo risotto and she loved it.only constructive criticism I would add is the bread was not cooked well it was pale white and for the main entree I they should include a salad.

    We sat outside on a very pleasant summer day for happy hour drinks. The Mai Tai was so bad that it had to be sent back - we should have left then. The restaurant was very nicely decorated and comfortable and the service was satisfactory however, the food was not good. I don't know how a filet with king crab legs could taste so bland but it was not very tasty. My brother got the scallops and said that they were just not good at all. I was looking forward to a delicious seafood dinner during my visit to St. Pete and we were disappointed with this so-so meal. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to try a different resturant. After being seated, we waited and waited and waited for service. Even though we were not in a hurry, good service is expected in a resturant. We decided not to eat dinner but just have appetisers and a drink. Poor service, along with a waiter would could not speak clearly ( but mumbled) disappointed our special occasion.

    Had the lobster mac n cheese with iceberg wedge salad. liked how I was seated right away. Service was with a smile all the time despite being so busy that evening. I got my own booth immediately. Iceberg wedge salad was crisp and delicious. Lobster mac and cheese was very filling, very good. Only had half and had the rest at home. Great as left overs.

    My wife and I took our first trip to St. Petersburg, and 400 Beach Seafood & Tap house came highly recommended by an online restaurant site, and lived up to the online reviews! She had the lobster tail which was delictable, and I had the tandoori spiced mahi mahi with orange cream sauce which was out of this world! We were completely satisfied by the food and the service! Would come back in a heartbeat!
