A word from Mise en Place
Since 1986, Mise en Place has developed into Tampa’s premier restaurant for modern American cuisine with an exciting and dynamic menu and flavors reflecting award-winning Chef-Owner Marty Blitz's insatiable love of food. His cooking style incorporates the regional flavors of our global community on the West Coast of Florida with his European training in the classics. The passion of independent proprietor Maryann Ferenc reflects in the spirit of the staff and the level of personal care in your dining experience. Mise En Place features an extensive and ever-changing wine list, and Wine Director Dave Madera has an extraordinary capability to pair your meal with a sensational glass of wine, elevating the dining experience. Chef Marty Blitz's passion goes beyond the regular menu items, for he has created a "Get Blitzed Tasting Menu" that incorporates a five course menu paired with wine.

Diner Reviews
  • "The décor is modern and cozy, with warm lighting and several dining niches. At first our dining alcove was a bit loud thanks to a diner at a nearby table who didn't understand the concept of "using your indoor voice." Still, it was a pleasant and romantic atmosphere. The service is absolutely stellar and the food is amazing. We started with the Seared Foie Gras, it was buttery and delicious. The three sauces it was served with were lovely, but in my opinion the heirloom tomato golden raisin agro dolce was divine. Our main courses, the Togarashi Seared Duck Breast and the Sous Vide Venison were delicious. For dessert, I highly recommend the Bananas Foster bread pudding. It was surprisingly light and delicate. The perfect end to our meal."

  • "I'm embarrassed to say that it has taken so long for me to visit Mise en Place. This is a gem and clearly the finest restaurant in Tampa, as evidenced by the recent USA Today rating. Luigi and Dave were excellent servers, both knowlegable and friendly. Dave Madera, the GM, spent some time with us discussing wine and food. From teh pork belly appetizer through to the creme brulee, everything was amazing. If you have nevern had it you must try the rack of lamb entree. It's been on the menu since they opened 28 years ago for a good reason."

  • "Much more than good is necessary to prompt a comment from me. The description in Fodor's of meticulous preparation was right on point. The food was superb and the presentation exceptional. This restaurant compares favorably with respected restaurants in New York and Chicago that we have enjoyed this summer. The menu is not simple, but the waiters are knowledgeable and friendly."

  • "Our lovely server Monica gave fantastic suggestions and with Rick by her side they were just the right amount of attentive. Highlights were the pork belly appetizer, scallops, lamb chops, venison, and lobster. All around delicious menu and we will return. Great cocktails and expansive wine list. While it is expensive, it is without a doubt worth it and one of the best ways to spend your money on food in Tampa!"

  • "Menu changes frequently and is very creative. Service is professional, knowledgable, and attentive. Wine list is on point and has something for everyone from cult producers to esoteric selections, all with very good pricing. This is one of the oldest, established restaurants in the area and they consistently keep it new, fresh, and intriguing."

  • "This was a case of for once a restaurant living up to its reputation. Everything I had was fantastic, beautifully prepared and presented. Impressive wine list. My table mates also seemed to enjoy all their choices. The lobster sous vide is a great choice. The interior is far lovelier than the photos on website convey. A little expensive but worth it My table mates found the service a bit slow but I enjoyed the unhurried pace between courses and while enjoying the wine--just know that in your planning of your evening."

  • "When our 6 year old(going on 16) granddaughter requested lamb chops in a restaurant, I remembered how delicious they were at Mise en Place. We made a 5:30 reservation and were seated promptly. Julia, our server, was fabulous with our granddaughter, making her feel totally special. They even brought her crudites while we ate our salad. The lamb chops arrived and they were delicious. She ate two of the four, letting me (her grandmother) have the other two. Creme brulee was her dessert of choice and it was absolutely scrumptious. So, although we don't usually think of Mise en Place when we plan to take our grandchildren, it was a fantastic choice for a special dinner."

  • "I had not been to Mise in about 10 years. Had followed the Blitz' from th old days of RG's North. Will not go back. Duck was horrid and everything else not worth the price. Mise has been passed by and they will not last much longer at this rate. Thursday evening and empty - for good reason."

  • "Classic American cuisine prepared with the care and styling of a French trained master. I knew we were in for a treat when my wife's eyes opened like saucers after a bite of the foccacia cracker in the bread basket. The melon vichyssoise amuse had us practically licking our bowls. Charcuterie of smoked duck, Korean sausage, and salmon rillette were flavorful and complex. The fried green tomato salad was refreshing and a classic that has been on the menu for years. I had the rack of lamb and she a crusted ahi tuna; both came out cooked perfectly. The entire staff made our anniversary dinner delightful with their wit and recommendations. You must get dessert, there's a reason the pecan toffee mousse has been on the menu for 28 years!"

  • "The food was pretty good not great. The service was ok but the waitress screwed up the order. Ordered the charcuterie as an appetizer. Had to put on our reading glasses to see what was on plate it was so small. We went because it was included in restaurant week. Only one choice for that menu and no one in our party of 4 liked it. Was very annoying when told the bottle of wine we chose was out of stock, but they had a similar tasting wine which was $20 more. Of course it was. Not very good form. I always tip 20% unless service is terrible, so dinner for 4 bottle of wine and tip over $300. To be worth that, dinner must be outstanding. It was far from that and will not go back."

  • "The service was top notch, from the hostess to the server. My only criticism was that our food took a long time. We waited almost an hour for our entree. The server was very gracious about the wait and gave us complimentary wine. The food was delicious and inventive. I will definitely be back!"

  • "Had visited previously and experience was very good - this time was a carbon copy, with high quality food, notable service (attentive, but not overbearing), decent timing during the course transitions, and a comfortable look and feel. The signature lamb dish had excellent flavors, but was a little tough. The cornmeal oysters w/green tomato relish was outstanding. The beef was also very rich in taste (and tender). Brioche bread pudding was perfect. We will be back."

  • "The food was amazing but the menu was confusing. Too many things and too much variety. I expected more from this place because of all I've heard. I usually like to figure out - by reading the menu- what the chef likes to cook or what he is good at, but could not do that here!!! Not a favorite."

  • "My husband and I decided to try Mise for our anniversary dinner and were severely disappointed. Our waiter recommended the sous vide lobster as a first plate which fell flat and was unimpressive. We then had the seared scallops which were better but still disappointing. I had the lamb as my main dish which had an unfortunate ring of inedible fat surrounding each piece. My husbands red snapper was mediocre but the rice was undercooked and flavorless. The service was great for us and so was the champagne. Creme brûlée was the high point of our meal but still left much to be desired. "

  • "This was not our first time and will not the last We. Like how frequently the menu changes I have only suggestion for the chef and that is the preparation , presentation of the green fried tomatoes "

  • "This is truly a gem for our community. The menu has a lot of variety and the wine list is great. The atmosphere is wonderful and the waitstaff is attentive but not intrusive. Wish I could afford to come here more often. When I want to eat out which is not often this is my place of choice."

I was also given complimentary champagne and dessert for my special occasion. I felt like they really went out of their way for us. I will definitely be back!"

  • "WE ATE AT MISE EN PLACE ON MAY 9. THE FOOD, THE SERVICE AND THE WINE LIST IS GREAT. THIS IS NOT A RESTAURANT I WOULD TAKE CHILDREN BUT FOR ANY TIME TO DINE IT WOULD BE SUPERB. THE WAITRESS SUGGESTED A WINE THAT WAS NOT ON THE WINE MENU AND IT WAS A HOME RUN. THE FOOD WAS THE STAR AND WE TOOK PART OF IT HOME. THE DUCK AND THE LAMB CHOPS WERE DONE TO PERFECTION. WE WILL BE BACK AND WE HAVE TO DRIVE 50 MILES TO GET HERE."

  • "This salad was delightful fare for veggie lovers! It was served beautifully arranged on the plate and fresh as if were picked just minutes ago. Roasted butternut squash, corn, kale, etc. dancing in a delightful chimmi churri vinaigrette. I would order it for every lunch but there are so many more selections on the menu that beg for attention! Elegant atmosphere, impeccable service...a wonderful place for lunch where you can relax, be well taken care of, and actually have a conversation with your dining companion!!!"

The dish selections were creative and plentiful, my softshell crab was crispy with an elegant sauce- just right! The service was friendly and informative. I would easily recommend this place."

  • "My wife and I had been wanting to try this place out and we weren't disappointed. I was adventurous and tried a coffee mole chile tuna dish and was not that impressed. It was so-so. My wife was more conservative and it paid off. Her tenderloin filet was cooked to perfection and the said the brussel sprouts were the best she's ever had. She insisted she could have eaten a whole plate of them. "

  • "Sophisticated menu, Interesting variety of foods to sample. First & second plates are just samples, but worth the experience. Entrée is more substantial, but just as interesting and enjoyable. This place is too expensive to be a regular, but is an excellent choice for the occasional splurge, especially if you want a meal of intriguing foods, first class service, and excellent wine selections. On my favorites list."

  • "I have been to this restaurant before and had another great dining experience. Our meals were delicious and I liked having the option of having two smaller plates to keep room for the delicious flour less chocolate cake. Highly recommend this restaurant. It is not cheap and great for a special event."
