    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.

    Food was delicious and server very attentive. Atmosphere a bit noisy and definitely kid friendly ... Which works if that's what you're looking for. Overall dining experience - I will definitely return and would recommend to others. Not a white table cloth experience - but the food was top notch!

    The food at 400 Beach is always good and that is expected with the average entree around $20. The service has always been excellent and I love the location. If the weather is nice, sitting outside is fabulous.

    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!

    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!

    Went here with a reservation on a summer Friday night. We got right in & had one of the most enjoyable dinners ever. Our server was nothing short of perfect, the food was very delicious, although the portions were a bit small. The atmosphere was relaxing & peaceful, with an ocean tic twist. Would definitely recommend & go again. P.s the bathrooms smelled amazing :)

However, they did not check us in as Open Table members.Staff is lack of energy and motivation.They got my order wrong, but re-made it with no issue. Nice place, beautiful view but lots of mosquitos around the table/food. There are good restaurants a short walk away with better food.

    We had a party of 7 that we had made reservations and specifically asked for a quiet area. When we were seated, we were placed in the larger room that had a party of about 40 people, the noise was deafening. We could not talk and it spoiled the evening. The management should have realized that the crowd was going to be noisy and place them in the other room. OR, placed us in the other area. We complained about the placement and was practically told "sorry" but that was it. No, effort to move us, no free round on us, nothing. I will not make reservations for businesses or a social dinner there again.
