Food was very good. The night
Food was very good. The night we were there was a limited menu but had a nice selection. The aged filet was excellent. We had a window table with a nice view of the water. Our service was excellent.
We went there before a concert at the Times Forum. Great place for a nice meal before a show.

Wonderful seafood and drinks!
My entree at Il Terrazzo was excellent, perfectly cooked scallops, sauteed with a scrumptious balsamic glaze with lovely cucumber essence and paper thin slivers of cucumber on a beautiful raw veggie base. The service was first rate, my waiter was very professional and attentive, appearing at just the right time when a drink needed re-filling or a plate needed to be taken away. My mojito from the bar was well made with lots of fresh mint. My only grumble was that my salad (which had a lovely dressing and beautiful fresh fennel) had some lettuce pieces going brown on the edges. I should have sent it back, but I didn't see the brown bits until I was halfway through. I would derfinitely dine here again, though. Everything else was excellent.

We eat here on occasion, especially when we bring our boat to the marina at the hotel. It's very convenient for us when we do this. The service we've had on the few times we visited was great! The food was delicious. The atmosphere was very nice overlooking the water, not too many people, and quiet enough to have a pleasant conversation with your dinner companions. The menu is large enough to offer a nice sampling for just about everyone.

Wonderful outside dining
This is a hidden treasure inside the downtown Marriott. The pasta is fresh, with some great vegetarian and fish entrees. Service was attentive and not stuffy. I was there with friends for an early Mother's Day dinner and plan to go back soon. The scallops were delicious, and the mushroom risotto also got raves.

Food was excellent; our server Alex was great. We had a quick window because we were going to see a show and he was able to get us out on time and never felt rushed.

And wonderful service; our waiter had a great sense of humor, the food was perfect when brought to the table, the two steaks ordered were done as ordered. I was impressed with the food, as it was a hotel restaurant. The only downfall is that it was right below the hotel pool. We ate outside, and there must have been a birthday party for a young girl at the pool, because we could hear them singing.

Great Food and Service
My best friend and I came in for dinner and had a wonderful evening! From the service staff being so polite to the amazing food, we truely enjoyed our dining experience! I had the Scallop app. which the scallops were cooked to prefection and the sauce was a nice balance. For our entree, I ordered a the Pork Belly and Scallops which was such a creative and amazing dish and my best friend ordered the Fresh Catch Snapper with Risotto which was also amazing! I will be coming back!

I took my girlfriend to dinner and was very impressed with the friendly service and attention to detail. Food was obviously made to order and not from a steam table. I had the Fresh Catch which was Halibut served with a risotto. The risotto was creamy goodness! My girlfriend had the filet that was perfectly cooked. Trust me this place has it going on. Crazy wine selection and homemade bread sticks. Very attentive and the manager even came by to say hi. We will be back for sure, great date!

Best place for pre-concert dinner
This is a hidden gem, inside the Marriott Waterside Hotel. It's so close to the Forum, that you can enjoy dinner and then just walk a couple blocks to the concert. I only gave 4 stars for the food, since my friends' house made butternut squash ravioli was only warm, not piping hot. But they said it was delicious, just not really hot enough. My lamb risotto was perfect. The menu is varied, so you can spend just a little on a pizza or calzone, or splurge on fresh seafood. Our server Alex was very attentive. Nice extra touches like amuse bouche before our dinner and housemade truffles with the cheque. A great downtown restaurant.

Delicious meal - my husband had the snapper and I had the lemon basil bolognese. The bread sticks and focaccia were delicious. Nice dinner before a show at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

The lamb was served as a mixture in a bowl like a stew - tasty but now what we expected. The bolognese was also served in a bowl with linguini - unusual and tasty but not superlative. The lobster bisque was the best you can get, the drinks were perfect, the bread was outstanding, & the creme brule & coffee were excellent.
