Celebration with Our Soldier
My son recommended Ciro's as a special experience to take our son, who is in the Military, to while he is on leave. The cocktails, food and atmosphere was fantastic. We enjoyed the excitement of the period and loved the booth/curtains. Service was excellent. The boys really enjoyed the duck fries, stuffed figs and especially the deviled eggs! I ordered the crab cake and it was the best I have ever had - Will want to come back often for special occasions and guests visiting.

back to the prohibition era
Interesting and tasty. The four of us had eight different dishes to share. Every dish was fantastic. Peach sour was the best, the other cocktails delightful. Seating area was a little tight for four, but would be ideal for a cozy romantic evening.

I took my husband for his 29th birthday where 6 of our friends met us. It was a lot of fun. Only thing was that the tables are small and it gets crowded with all the plates and glasses.

Not to be missed!
Tucked away, but well worth the little search. A truly wonderrful place to initiate my birthday celebration! The duck fat fries and truffle popcorn were fun and tasty :)

Really enjoyed this place. I came with my son. daughter; mom and sister from out of state. The food was wonderful. My mom had the crab cake, she said it was "the best" crab cake she has ever had. Popcorn was really good! My daughter loved the cheese fondue! We all shared everything. Not a big selection on the menu, but everything was good. We weren't really sure what to expect, I brought my 5 year old son he loved the chicken and waffles with fries!. It isn't really a place for kids, but he did like it. He said "he wants to eat there everyday". The waitress was very friendly and helpful, we had a lot of questions about the menu. I will be calling to make another reservation soon to come have dinner there with a few friends!!!

A Beautiful environment, great
A Beautiful environment, great setting. The private booths are very nice and romantic. I enjoyed the 'secret password' haha! . The only thing I didn't like was the price for the amount of food. Other than that, it was a great experience!

Unique Experience and Great Food!
I wouldn't say this is your "everyday restaurant" but it is definitely a good choice for a special night out or when you are in the mood to try something a little different. Very cozy seating and private. Tons of interesting drinks and excellent food! Menu is limited but everything I tried was delicious.

This was an amazing experience! Ciro's is definitely a hidden gem of Tampa Bay (SOHO) can't wait for our return!
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went on a Sunday evening, so it was quieter. Our server, whose name I forgot but used to cheerlead for the Tampa Bay Bucs, made perfect recommendations for each of us. The food was awesome. Eric, the manager, visited us and we all had a lively conversation with him. He happened to know several of our friends, updated us on their whereabouts, and shared some of his cocktail expertise with the table. Great ambiance for catching up with friends, and the staff really contribute to the social experience. Places like that are a rare find today, I'll be back.

I dined at Ciro's for my anniversary and it was absolutely romantic. If you're going there on a date with a loved one I would definitely recommend that place. Food, drinks and service was excellent.

I chose this spot for my husbands
I chose this spot for my husbands 29th birthday starting point. We had wanted to try this place for quite sometime but were never really able to find it. It was really nice to get a call that same day with the evenings password. The ambiance was very authentic. We really enjoyed the glowing menu. It took a while for our server to appear to get our drink order which is sort of understandable maybe he was giving us time to peruse the huge cocktail menu! I tried 4 drinks all were exquisite and very flavorful. The only complaint is the table space becam quite an adventure with the entry lasses and food plates not being cleared at the proper time. My husband received a lovely birthday shot with a candle shoved into a raspberry quite imaginative
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
great for a special date
Drinks and food are very good! Volume is just right for conversation and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Back in Time Delight
Ciro's was awesome - the ambiance was fantastic although I feel that it is more of an intimate setting. You sit in a little private booth with its own curtain and there are candles all around you! The drinks were amazing - I had the Tryst which was a cucumber drink that was AMAZING! I also tried the Absinthe because I wanted to and the presentation was very cool! The waiters are extremely knowledgeable and help you navigate the large drink menu! This is a fun place and I think everyone should try!
8/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Ciro's is amazing!
Ciro's may be a "secret" but the awesomeness of the whole experience should not be a secret to anyone.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A tremendous experience!
Ciro's was an amazing experience, and one that I would recomment to anyone. Our server was highly knowledgeable and recommended not only great food but great drinks as well. The bartender was incredibly skilled, and made some of the best drinks I've ever had (I am a former bartender myself, so that review doesn't come lightly). Overall, the atmosphere was incredible and well worth the money. If you are looking for a classy place to have drinks and some delicious food, this is your place!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a special date night
I really enjoyed Ciro's the atmosphere of the speak-easy really makes it unique and a fun outing. Our server was very helpful answering questions about the drinks, which were fantastic.

Ciros Speakeasy: unique & expensive
The Speakeasy was unique and intimate, but ridiculously expensive. I would recommend it for one round of drinks and one appetizer, then move on to a real restaurant for dinner. I was glad I went once, but my wallet won't let me go back again.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
School's in. Get ready to learn everything there is to know about cocktails. The atmosphere is fun, too. And, if you don't try the truffle popcorn and the ancho popcorn, you're taste buds will hate you.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ciro's - Best Speakeasy in the Area
This place rocked! From the first knock on the door to the drink and food. Can't be beat and you won't be disappointed. Let the server pick your drinks, she knew what it was all about.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I celebrated my birthday here, and once again, the restaurant did not disappoint! I love the concept and the vibe of this place, and the food and drinks are amazing! Definitely worth a visit!!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing service and delicious food!
My bf and I celebrated our anniversary there on Monday Sept 9th. So romantic and cozy! Everything our server recommended was amazing! Will def be coming back and requesting our server again!!!! :D
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
A fun and unusual place! The
A fun and unusual place! The music was great, the drinks are incredible, and are geared toward that era. The food was delicious and plate sizes were perfect for sharing although with four of us sharing a hi-top, the table did get a wee bit crowded. I think next time we'll request one of the more private booths. Even with being a bit crowded, it was a fantastic evening.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This one has it all!
The ambiance, the drinks, the food - one word: AMAZING!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
knowledable fun waitress
Great food, fun to share plates, crab cake and duck were standouts!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun and charm meet at Ciro's
A charming place with an unusual and fun theme. Obviously mixed drinks are a specialty and they don't disspoint. Served by knowledgeable bar staff who can provide a mixological-historical dissertation and drinks obviously made with a passion for detail and accuracy, as well as creative inventions of their own device. Service overall is great (we had Jules and what a pleasure she was), as is the ambience which takes thematic cues from the prohibition-era speakeasy, with a playful level of privacy, dim lighting, and an excellent soundtrack. Fun, unique, and very well done, an easy recommend.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, wait staff excellent, ambiance fantastic!
Fun for everyone!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great atmosphere-Creative Cocktails
An outstanding restaurant with unmatched atmosphere in Tampa Bay. Perfect for date night (reserve one of the private, curtained booths) and enjoy some of the most expertly mixed cocktails in the area.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
lots of privacy and food was great. only issue is the table were not big enough with the food we ordered and it would of been nice to be able to have that room. besides that everything was define.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great classic cocktails
I really enjoy classic cocktails but, it's hard to find many places in the area that do them well. Ciro's Speakeasy and Supper Club does a tremendous job with their cocktail menu and the execution of the drinks. Every cocktail I ordered was excellent and I would certainly come here again!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Take a trip back in time
One of the most fun restaurants I've been to in the Tampa Bay area. The food is delicious, but it's really the libations that stand out. Their drink menu is innovative and varied, but it's the fresh, house made and grown ingredients that compliment the liquors that makes it so outstanding.
Service was prompt and friendly, from the valet, to the hostess, to bartender, to our actual waiter.
The private booths with drawn curtains provide real privacy and a romantic setting.
The only complaint I have, is due to our location, we constantly could here the servers coming and going from the kitchen..."Corner" was repeated so often it stuck in my head. Perhaps installing a discreet mirror that showed around the corner might help.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
what a find.
We went here for our anniversary. Everything about this place is perfect. Some of the best drinks ever. The whole experience was fantastic! We really don't make it to Tampa from St. Pete very often but we will be back here for our next special occasion!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
There's nothing like it.
Truly a unique experience. The best drinks I've ever had, period. Amazing food. Wonderful service. Awesome atmosphere.
Don't forget your password!

Overall the place was great;
Overall the place was great; however, we were sat across from a group of loud and very inconsiderate people which really the environment unpalatable. Someone must have complained because they quieted down and the atmosphere returned to the romantic and sophisticated environment one expects from a Speakeasy.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Why'd I wait so long?
I've known about Ciro's for a while but never went, until last Friday night. Easy enough to create a reservations. They called the next afternoon with the password and were super understanding when we called ahead to let them know we were running a few minutes late. They did an impressive job with the decor of the place. The booths with curtains and controllable lighting set the mood. The food was delicious. The drinks are everything they boast about and more. Then there's our server Katie, OMG Katie. She's gorgeous, sincere, helpful & extremely knowledgable about the menu and drinks. The atmosphere, food, and drinks alone make this a good experience, help like Katie makes the experience unforgettable. Thank You!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice change of pace
My husband and I tried Ciro's for the first time. It was a great experience.
-staff in period dress
-incredible drinks-they have elevated drink making to an art
-cozy booths that have curtains
-nice change of pace from regular restaurants
-music wasn't really period appropriate. Since staff dressed period appropriate would like this them to be carried thru
-the food had a good flavor but greasier than I prefer
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent cocktails, fresh
Excellent cocktails, fresh food and innovative menu, great atmosphere. Crowd is not too young and not too old. A great place to treat visiting friends and family.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience and food
Went for a nice date night out and had a blast. The booths are so cool and all the good is amazing, the drinks are even that much better. The lady was happy and so was I.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I heard great things about Ciros and it did not disappoint. The drinks were fantastic and all made with fresh ingredients which made a huge difference.
The food was excellent as well. The duck leg was very tender and tasty. Cheese fondue was awesome.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time at Ciro's
A friend told us about Ciro's Speakeasy, so we decided to go there for our anniversary. The atmosphere was outstanding. Our server Katie was amazing and the food was wonderful. The duck fat fries were definitely the highlight of the meal. We will definitely go again. The only drawback was the party in the next booth and it wasn't really a big deal. It was a birthday party and they were speaking loudly. They were not swearing or being obnoxious, they were just having a good time so we did not mind too much.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Well I never paid attention in school and did not realize what a speakeasy was and I brought my pregnant wife but none the less we both had an amazing time and will be back after the baby come so she can try a few of the great mixed drinks !!!!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything about this place is excellent. The drinks are inventive and well-mixed; and the menu is creative and well executed. The one downside of ciro's is that it's prohibitively expensive. $15-17 drinks in an intimate setting is high in my opinion. My girlfriend and I spent ~$150 on two entrees, an appetizer, 4 drinks and (required) valet parking.
The experience was great, and I wish I could go more often; however I can't see myself spending that amount of money anytime soon. Another unfortunality is that they offer no promotions/coupons/discounts that I was able to find.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved it all
Food was incredible drinks were outstanding it is a must go for anybody who loves great restaurants in Tampa Bay
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
It didnt even feel like you were in Tampa anymore.. from the moment you leave your car with the valet and find a wooden door in a garden you feel like you were taken to a VIP underground event. Ambiance is amazing, very romantic, even my server Melissa was super knowledgeable and just amazing in general. Will be coming back!
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
WOW! What A Surprise!
We were not expecting what we found! The experience was truly a throwback to the days of Prohibition from the knock on the door (along with the peephole),the private dining area, the attire of the servers, the drink menu, etc. If you're looking for a wine list, this is not the place for you. They serve real alcohol! The only exception is the food. The food was tapas style and incredibly delicious! We ordered grilled veggies, deviled eggs topped with smoked salmon, ikura and dill (OMG), salad and braised duck leg (the meat fell off the bone). The service was OUTSTANDING and was run like a well oiled machine. The booth was very romantic and although we weren't on a special date, it felt like one so thank you. We will be back.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything about this place is amazing. The old school speakeasy vibe, great music, secluded booths, the menu, food, service....all top notch. One of the best dining experiences of my life...and I travel internationally 9 months of the year.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great trendy spot!
I have been to Ciro's once before and I enjoyed my dining experience very much, so I had to go back to celebrate my birthday. Great strong drinks! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Worth it for a special date
It was a little pricey since it's tapas and you have to get 3-4 dishes for two people to feel full plus you have to get drinks for the full experience, but it was definitely worth it for a nice date. The drinks were very well made, the service was great and the ambience was fantastic for a romantic evening. The seating areas feel less like a booth and more like couch, they close a curtain in front of you giving it a much more intimate feel.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was superb... great place to make a first impression.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wanna get her alone
take her here. This was a great date spot. The low lighting and private booths made for a very romantic dinner. Drinks were phenomenal, service was great, and the food was good too. Not much more you can ask for.
