    Mitchell's has always been a place that can be counted on for a solid overall experience. The positives; we were greeted promptly and our reserved table was ready when we arrived, the service was very attentive and there were no delays in the kitchen even though they were very busy with the dining room full and the lobby packed. The negatives: Valet service was horrible, the appeared to be only 2 attendants and they couldn't juggle the in/out flow hence cars were just left in long lines unattended. We ended up self parking so as not to be late for out reservation time but that doesn't start out the experience on a good note. The Yellow Fin Tuna I ordered was stringy and not up to the standards I am used to here. A little disappointing.

    My wife and I have dined several times at Mitchell's and I must say this was my only disappointing visit. I ordered the Market Trio, which I have enjoyed immensely on prior visits, but when served the tilapia and salmon were extremely small servings. Had it not been for the fact that another couple, our guests, were with us I would have said something to the server. I sincerely hope this was an isolated event and not a new management strategy to lower costs. The other 3 entrees for our party were fine.

  • Fresh Fish, but spoiled with sauce
    phxfoodie
    Dined on 8/12/2014
    Good vibrant place. Never been there before, but rated high on Yelp and Opentable. Service was very good. The Ceviche was excellent. The lobster bisque = awesome. I had a trio of scallops, shrimp and grouper (their menu has salmon, but they gratefully accomodated switching). All of the fish was fresh, but I couldn't enjoy it as it all was drowned in a soy sauce that was way too overpowering - but is a chef's recommendation. My wife enjoyed her cedar-plank Chillean sea bass very much. Overall, a good place to eat, I would have rated higher if it wasn't for the sauce debacle, but we'll try it again, next time we're in town.

    We took a big group here for dinner on a business trip and their smaller private room was too small for us. They were flexible and moved us over to the bigger room. The food was amazing but everything here is cooked to order so expect a long meal.

    My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary at the restaurant. It was a perfect choice. From the special menu noting our anniversary, to excellent service and of course to the excellent meal. We both had the special lobster and tenderloin. The lobster was cooked perfect and the tenderloin was very tender and flavorful. We can't wait to return.

    Dined on 7/13/2014
    I've been to Mitchell's a few times over the years and I've been very satisfied with food and service. This particular visit was not so great. Our server offered us an "upgrade" to Atlantic salmon for $4 more for each of our dishes. We both ordered the upgrade. Turned out only one of us got the upgrade because there was only one Atlantic salmon remaining (we were charged appropriately). It was dry and less flavorful compared to the farm raised salmon. Still, I will give Mitchell's another try as their selection of fish is unbeatable.

    This was our third visit this year , and I keep returning for the consistent fine food and service..we received a friendly greeting at reception seated in a comfortable booth as requested. Our server was delightful. For our entrees we enjoyed the summer special menu: lobster tail and tenderloin kebabs. Yum. A manager stopped by and on our way out thanked us for dining with them. Nice touch in today's busy world. They did everything right..I highly recommend this fine restaurant in Westshore area in Tampa..

    My husband and I had dinner here a couple of times before. We love the service and the ambiance. So for my husband's birthday dinner recently, the choice was clear that Mitchell's Fish Market would be a great place to celebrate with our friends and family. I made reservations through Open Table I indicated that I was celebrating a birthday. The restaurant called me the morning of the event to confirm. When we got there that evening they led us into one of their private rooms and instantly I was surprised. I was not expecting a room for my party nor did I expect they would personalize their menu to wish my husband a happy birthday. They completely went above and exceeded my expectations. It is definitely not your typical "stuffy" restaurant.

    Good food but slow service. Restaurant was very warm and uncomfortable. Charbroiled oysters were good with just the right amount of spice and my frutti di mare pasta was very good though it can be a touch go with the large fresh pasta it comes with. Wife enjoyed her seafood Americana. Did not leave room for the "shark fin" dessert.

    I had a lovely birthday lunch with my mother and sister at Mitchell's. The food was very good - my mom and sis got lobster bisque and split a fresh salad with salmon on top. I had the fresh ahi tuna sandwich on croissant. Food, service and atmosphere were all very good, and the meal affordable at lunch prices. We all noted we liked the concept of choosing the type of fish and treatment separately for a dinner selection and would definitely return for dinner sometime. All fresh fish....never frozen is an appealing feature.

I told my friends about the Sharks Fin Deseret & how last time we were there there was 5 of us & we couldn't eat it all. this time it was 1/2 the size & 3 of us ate it all! Before dinner came I went to the restroom & saw that there were six 4- tops in the dinning room & after making reservations 3 day's in advance I don't understand why we were sat in the bar! I don't believe we will be going back anytime soon!

    I frequent this place often and LOVE IT each time I go so, I decided to pick this for our Girl's Nite Out this time. It was a BIG success! There were 9 of us and not one person had a complaint about the ambience, food, service, location, or anything else. Our waiter was excellent and joined in on our fun. The only reason I didn't give him 5 stars is because we had to ask for our drinks to be refilled. Other than that, he was an EXCELLENT waiter so we didn't hold that against him. Everyone of us talked about how good our food was and how nice our night turned out overall. The hostess was VERY professional in helping me change my reservation time to a later time. I don't think I'll get any rejections to returning for another Girl's Nite Out!!

    Have now been to Mitchell's three times and on each visit it was just "ok" at best. Location is convenient near airport for a biz dinner but the food is lacking. They kitchen is inconsistent and the food unimaginative. They have a good selection of fresh product on display but the cooking lacks. For example I ordered the tuna seared with the Asian preparation. What I got was a slightly grey colored slab of fish on a bed of soggy spinach with strong garlic over tones. Almost like it had been put in a warm fry pan instead of a screaming hot grill. Service is good so no knocks on the staff ( seems to slow down when busy) but the kitchen will keep me away until they get things figured out. If you want seafood in Tampa...keep looking.

    We are never disappointed by Mitchell's Fish Market. The food is wonderful. The lobster tails are perfectly cooked, and the redskin mashed potatoes are fabulous. The caesar salad is not to be missed - it is the best we have ever had. The service is always excellent - attentive, but not overbearing.

    Looking for a quiet hour to enjoy a leisurely dinner, we find 5 pm best as staff is calm and not loaded up and the dining area is mostly empty. So our service, food preparation and presentation is always great. Specials are a good value and wine list compliments the menu.

    While the Shang-Hai dish was on point and full of flavor, the frute de marre was bland and overall disappointing. I was also extremely upset over the fact that cheese was added to my seafood based dish. Any properly trained chef would know that by adding cheese, you compromise the taste and integrity of seafood. I almost felt as if it were a last ditch effort to disguise the lack of flavor. The saving grace of my experience was due to the overall hospitality of our waitress. Lastly, I find it to be extremely annoying that I am receiving this email at 1 o'clock in the morning. Any professional survey would be conducted at a reasonable hour. Please rethink your dish and survey.
