- Wonderful eveningEsilvaDined on 8/16/2014We had reservation Saturday night for 6, they had reserved us a very nice table in a secluded area , food was amazing, good service very nice atmosphere .

- Bad Late Night option:Disappointingwsb225VIPDined on 8/15/2014I made a reservation for 12 midnight to dine late night after a concert. When I arrived, I was told the kitchen was closed and that they could not serve us. After pushing back and speaking with the manager, the staff reluctantly seated us. You could tell the staff did not want to be there or serve us. Several items on the menu where not available. It was obvious that we arrived they had already started breaking down and preparing for closure. Bottom Line: If you take a late night reservation on Open Table, then be prepared for your guest. We will not be going back to Grill 116 South.
- Refreshing!ClassyfoodVIPDined on 8/8/2014Loved the atmosphere, very friendly staff and loved the food! A must when we visit Tampa in the future!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- surprise choiceFoodieIAmVIPDined on 7/26/2014Every so often my wife and I will just see what is available on a Friday or Saturday night last minute on open table to see if anything is new or a favorite we can sneak into. We heard about grille 116 but never got around to it. The last thing we do before committing is look at the menu and see if that is really what we want. My wife looked and said, "why not." So glad we did. We got there and the place wasn't too crowded, but that changed before we left. Even when crowds did arrive you could carry on a conversation without problem. Food was outstanding, drinks were refreshing. Already planning on taking a few friends and family back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OUTSTANDINGLY special place!Geoladd328Dined on 7/19/2014We had our first date here. Recently, we celebrated the first anniversary of our first date and returned to this special place. The chef and staff gave us a custom-made heart shaped chocolate cheesecake free of charge to help us celebrate! That was such a kind and classy gesture that you rarely see in this me focused world. The kindness of this gift was only exceeded by the incredible flavor of the desert. The bacon appetizer with the grits was divine and I highly recommend it. The Chilean Sea Bass was to die for. Their Sangria was very good. We sat in a booth and the seating was very comfortable and initimate. The decor was modern and very elegant. Hope to spend our second anniversary there!I would recommend this to a friend.
- Calling Modern FoodiestampafoodieDined on 7/19/2014Ambient lighting from when you first walk in sets the mood for a romantic evening or a for a group event of some sort. The cocktail list is by far one of he better ones in Tampa rivaling another local favorite Cirro's speakeasy. The food is on par with the drinks, however prepare to spend a little more as the prices seem a little high, but if your trying this place out for the first time and want to impress, this is definitely a place to consider.Special Features:
- Great food and better serviceSantiagopolisDined on 7/19/2014From the get go, we were very well received. Reservation was easily found. Wine was particularly good and their recommendation was excellent. Food quality and appearance was excellent. Price was very reasonable. Highly recommended.Special Features:
- All Around GemUke1Dined on 7/18/2014Great food. Excellent service. Extremely friendly and attractive staff. Generous drink portions, can't beat 2 for 1 till 8:PM. Josh is a thoughtful and courteous waiter, Eric is a gracious host. Bartenders introduce themselves with a handshake. They make you feel like favorite customers on the first visit. House salad was large and tasty. Filet was fantastic. Watermelon cocktail perfect for summer. Doughnut desert with 4 separate flavor dips was an extra treat. Easy in and out valet service. Booths are super comfortable. They have special seating areas for larger groups. TV's above the bar let you track the Rays, etc. My new favorite place. Worth the drive from Clearwater!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Another Great ExperiencePDogVIPDined on 7/11/2014Great meal (Grouper Sliders are the best), great service, great cocktails and 2 for 1 happy hour…thanks. We'll be back again!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ExcellentGrille116Dined on 7/5/2014If you're looking for something new in South Tampa then check out Grille 116. The menu is creative and not too expensive for such a nicely decorated and chic restaurant. The entire staff from valet, hostess and waiter were friendly and helpful. The food was very good and mostly organic. Everything was fresh and well presented. I highly recommend Grille 116 for any occasion. If it's a special romantic occasion, I would request a booth. They are well appointed, romantic and cozy.Special Features:
- Toooooo fast.....and NO bread2quick2eatDined on 7/5/2014We were able to sit in a booth which for our 1st time dining here was great. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Everybody was wonderfully warm and talkative....The food was okay.....nothing outstanding. We did feel like the food came to quick and not enough time in between our appetizer and main meal. There was no bread for the table unless you ordered and paid for it......our entire dining experience was 1hr.....too quick for a Saturday night.....Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great night outOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 7/5/2014Service was super - Thanks Haley for wonderful experience! Everyone was helpful and friendly. Food was wonderful and we enjoyed it as much as any "name brand" 4 star steakhouse. The Chef, Haley and Manager Eric surprised us with a wonderful dessert for our anniversary dinner that was too big to finish! We are early diners so enjoyed a quiet room and roomy booth. The place was really starting to fill up as we were leaving. Looked like a fun place to hang out for drinks and for group outings too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Dinner reviewbossmomrnDined on 6/21/2014We were a party of 6. We had very good service. The restaurant was a little warm actually. My fish, sea bass was a little fishy. I didn't seem flaky and fresh as other sea bass I've eaten. The vegetables were not good. I enjoyed the salad and appetizer we had.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Dining ExperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 6/14/2014This was my first time at Grille One Sixteen. We were celebrating Mother's Day & Father's Day.

We will be going back there in the future.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great special occasion dinner!Dinner42Dined on 6/13/2014We came here for our anniversary dinner and from the minute we walked in, the evening was special.

- One of our favorites secretsMCBDYNAMICDined on 6/13/2014We have been to Grille One Sixteen several times before the theatre and enjoy the ambiance, food, decor and the service. Highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- My favorite resturant!ChrisDined on 6/3/2014Absolutely love this resturant and i have been 10+ times this year (2014) alone. Came here this week for my brother's birthday dinner and 1 of the 5 entres was not delivered until 15min after the other 4. No explanation was given but still my favorite resturant. Favorite app is the bacon, favorite two dishes are the Spicy Tuna Salad and the 12oz filet. Amazing dessert and great staff. Besides this one time always had a great meal!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Poor service ruined our celebrationHsy2550Dined on 5/24/2014We went to Grille One Sixteen to celebrate our friend’s 21st wedding anniversary. I called ahead to let the restaurant know of the special occasion. It was Memorial Day Weekend on a Saturday, so when we arrived the restaurant was practically empty. We were promptly seated since our friends were running late. We order drinks, Crown on the rocks and a Mia Tia. The bartender did not know how to make the Mia Tia. After we got our drinks, our waitress was nowhere to be found. We finally beckoned for her to come take our order. She had no interest in waiting on us was obvious. The food was good, but the service was poor. There was no acknowledgement that we were celebrating our friend anniversary. I will probably not go back again.Special Features:
- Anniversary nightTampaDebDined on 5/17/2014Service was excellent. Well greeted, GM introduced himself during dinner. Beautiful and modern decor. Our Calamari appetizer was plentiful, only needed to ask for more sauce because there was so much calamari! Dinner was delicious Ribeye for him and tempura lobster tails for me. Topped by a customized dessert from the chef since it was our anniversary! Nice touch.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/5/2014My wife and I went for our anniversary and had an amazing experience. Food, drinks, desert were excellent and priced very fairly. The service was first rate. I used the Open Table app and the recognized our anniversary and met all of my requests.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Very pleasantly surprisedDaveCVIPDined on 5/2/2014The South Tampa location of Grille One Sixteen gave a great combination of artistic contemporary restaurant design, original appetizers, a wide-ranging menu to please many palates and very friendly service. All of this, infused with a clubby yet relaxing dining atmosphere. Restaurant manager Eric made my mom feel so quite at home, too, even if the noise level is a little "high energy" for her. We enjoyed and appreciated the light-up menus. The restaurant booths are posh, among the best I've sat in, among restaurants on East Coast or West Coast. This place earns its five OpenTable stars.Special Features:
- Our first time.AMSunShnDined on 4/26/2014Excellent service. Chic design. Food was outstanding from the apps to the main course. Bartenders were fun & friendly. Drinks out of the ordinary & excellent!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 4/26/2014We've dined at Grille One Sixteen a few times and this time was no different. The service was perfection, the food was delicious and the cocktails were creative and amazing. The GM even came over to check on our table and make sure everything was okay. That extra little effort always makes you feel special. This is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion and they even have private dining areas. We will be back!!!Special Features:
- Love Grille One Sixteen South!SteakLuv2Dined on 4/18/2014I have eaten in some of the finest steakhouses in the USA, from Ruth's Chris, to Hyde Park (Hyatt Daytona Beach, FL), to Flemming's, to Bern's (Tampa, FL), to Morton's and several unexpected delights in various non-chain venues. Grill One Sixteen South has to be one of the very BEST steakhouses on this planet! The quality of the meat (had the rib eye) and the firing was unlike any I have ever experienced: especially tender, juicy, and flavorful. This place proves that grain/grass fed beef really is the best best when having a steak. The ambiance of this place is so chic and inviting. The wait staff (been here twice now) is consistently professional with their attendance and demeanor. My advice: GO HERE.... SOON!Special Features:
- FlippedRavenDined on 4/10/2014The deco was well done, love that the menus had a back light so you are able to read them. My only problem , it seem as if we were been rushed by the waitress she didn't give us time to make decisions between courses. Would probably stay longer and get more drinks if she wasn't in such rush, maybe her shift was ending. Still a great atmosphere would go back. The donuts are a must.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great night of diningSMWTampaDined on 4/5/2014Service was superb and the good was even Better. We all really enjoyed out first visit here.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Beautiful restaurant with so so foootterladyVIPDined on 4/4/2014Service was great but food was nothing special. Fried tofu, a vegetarian option, needed some sort of sauce or something to give it flavor other than grease. Loved the glowing menu! Would give it another try.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I wanted a reservation forGeodisVIPDined on 4/4/2014I wanted a reservation for 7:00 or 7:30 pm and none were available so I took 7:45. No big deal about that but when I got there, the place was empty. Not sure why I couldn't get the earlier reservation. Also, only one or two tables came in later than that. We left about 9:15 and the place was still basically empty. Only 2 people at the bar and maybe 5 booths being used. Food was ok, service was good. I doubt if I will go back.
- First time to this restaurant.BradVIPDined on 3/29/2014First time to this restaurant. We had to wait about 15 minutes for our table, but once seated, everything went very well. Both of us had fish entrees (grouper and sea bass), and they were excellent - fresh, properly cooked and presented very well. Wine selection very good with pricing reasonable.
- modern decore, dark, goodBILLDined on 3/28/2014modern decore, dark, good bar (happy hour) outstanding. mostly younger crowd. good food and serviceSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Loved It!SnobbyEaterDined on 3/27/2014A great experience at a restaurant is a combination of thoughtfully prepared food and excellent service. We experienced both. The food consisted of amazing, well-thought out dishes. We ordered three appetizers, two cocktails and two different main courses. All were excellent. I highly recommend the ceviche. Doug, our server, was prompt, personable, professional, and completely knowledgeable of the entire menu. He made excellent recommendations. We did expect the restaurant to be busier, but there was nothing wrong with our quiet evening. Overall, Grill One Sixteen is now one of my favorite restaurants.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
