  • "We dine at Vizcaya as often as we can and have never been disappointed! If you have never tried this restaurant, do yourself a favor and make a reservation; you won't be disappointed!!"

  • "The tapas and the salads we shared were delicious, and the wines suggested by our server were excellent. The only disappointment was the flavorless paella. We ordered it because it's so unique to a Spanish menu, but we will definitely select another option the next time we dine at Vizcaya."

  • "We were a group of 7. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks. Four of us ordered paella. It was wonderful! Another raved about their grouper. We will definitely come back. Service was outstanding."

  • "Opentable steered us right. Visiting from out of town we gave this spot a try and it was terrific. Great ambience food and service made this an excellent experience for me and my family. Try the bacon wrapped dates or the bean soup. Highly recommend!"

  • "I was excited about taking a group here. We hadn't been in a long time and continued to hear great things. The service was just plain dreadful. The food was Ok but the service negatively impacted our entire experience. We has to keep waiving the server over and asking him to order. Not good when you're in a large group having tapas. I expected much more."

  • "The white wine sangria is our favorite starter. The meal is complete with Paella, which is large enough to share. Lots of fish and yellow rice."

  • "I like Vizcaya. The food is always good. I had the sea bass and it was delicious although it was served warm .not hot as I would have liked. The side items are always good. Great wine list. Excellent service."

  • "Great experience with tapas, wine and live music. This was the first time and will definitely return!"

  • "We only ordered tapas and salads . They started bringing the tapas within 10 minutes of ordering... and kept binging them out on a timely fashion. Tapas were delicious ! Sangria too. Great service ...and it was a very busy Saturday night."

  • "This restaurant is great from beginning to end. The staff is very knowledgeable. They have excellent food and wine. The creme Brulee is awesome."

  • "Usually one of our favorite places but Valentine's Day was a bad expereince. They'd put so many tables in the restaurant you were literally on top of one another. You could hear all conversations around you- akward & uncomfortable. NOT a romantic experience . Not told there'd be a limited menu - limited it was indeed! The food we did order wasn't up to Viscaya's standard at all. The lack of seasoning, taste, care & presentation wasn't up to par. The service wasn't attentive - the young man running food provided more attention than the waiter. Felt rushed -done in 45 minutes. No one asked if we'd like dessert, coffee, or after dinner drink. First time we 've ever had this type of experiece there- the evening was very dissappointing."

  • "We have dined at Vizcaya several times and love it - some of the best tapas in Tampa. However, on Valentines Day it is transformed into a wam bam thank you ma'am mess. There is a pitiful set menu with none of the good tapas ( hope you like croquettes) and a few entres which seemed premade, cafeteria style. This little spot was one of the best places to dine in North Tampa - even after the ambiance killing expansion, but our trip on the 14th left a bad taste in our mouth's. they crammed extra tables into the dining room so it felt like a speed dating session with other couples right at our elbows. But the sangria was still good :)"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was not the first time we've experienced this, but unless your group size is more than 2, you end up sitting too close to others. There is maybe 12 inches between tables. That's NOT very romantic when you can hear everyone's conversations. Food is always good. Didn't really appreciate the special limited menu for VD, however, I found something that was tasty. I also think the price may have been slightly higher than original menu."

  • "We would not travel to Carrollwood for any reason but this was a good one! Service was good, food ok, not outstanding yet pricy. A good local restaurant for Carrollwood dwellers. We would not go again."

  • "Booked a lunch reservation. Noone at hostess station to check in, including 3 separate groups that came in after. Walked dining room, waiter chatting with a bus person & even after seeing me, continued to talk until I asked if he could help.Table had white napkins. Guest asked for black napkin and was told that "it would be okay". Another guest asked to sub a salad, even if it cost extra was told "we don't do that".Food was very average with little flavor. Had to ask for drink refills, waiter would refill one drink and start to walk off, then had to be stopped to fill other glasses at table. Was looking forward to the lunch - strangest experience we ever had. The restaurant obviously does not care about word of mouth or repeat business."

  • "We found the food to be good and service was generally fine except at the end, when we waited an unreasonable time for our check, even after asking for it a couple of times."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Not enough food, based on a tapas place, for the price. Restaurant was substantially louder than I expected. Taste of the food was so so."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "We enjoyed both tapas and main entrees for the meal. The food was fresh and very well prepared and our waiter was professioal and friendly. Overall a perfect evening!"

  • "Great experience. Our OpenTable reservation was warmly received. We were seated in a well located booth. Our server was extraoirdinary--wonderful personanity and attended to his job. Our meals were prepared perfectly. We will definitely return."

  • "We had loved this restaurant before the renovation/addition and this was our first visit since the expansion. We were disappointed. We remembered being so impressed by the quality of the food and presentation, but now everything was just average- nothing special. We went on a moderately busy Friday evening. Service was not great, one of appetizers never came, the food was okay but not special. All in all disappointing."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "I was very disappointed with the seating. I'd made a reservation yet when we came in they put us at a bar table. Due to bad knees this was problematic. We could have sat outside but it was too cold for my elderly guest. So we sat at the bar, still too high but at least there was a ledge. Then the bottom part of the leg of my chair broke off. The food was good and wait staff was good, but the inability to be seated appropriately was annoying and there was not a lot of effort to accommodate us. We would have left, but as this was so close to Christmas there was little chance of finding another restaurant that was available."

  • "Jazz musicians were a bit loud. There were only two of us, but had we been a larger group, we could not have carried a conversation. Outstanding food preparation and quality. Fish was very fresh and sauces were savory. Staff was attentive yet unobtrusive, knowledgeable and gracious."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Enjoyed the option of tapas (small plates) or dinner entrees. Fun atmosphere! Everything that we ordered was delicious!"
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Well the title says it all. EVERYTHING was well prepared, our server was great, and the atmosphere was fun. I wish it was closer to my home, as I would eat here more often. The 4 of us tried about 15 plates of food, and everything was great."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "The sea bass and dates are amazing! Food and service is consistent! Great music!"
    Dined on 11/7/2013
  • "The remodeled restaurant has a very nice ambience and feel. The air conditioning continues to be a major drawback for me. We both had the grouper dish on the menu. We knew from past experience to ask for it with light olive oil. The quality and freshness of the fish is very good. The bread is fresh baked and good. We both had salads that could have easily been shared. The wine list leaves a lot to be desired. We brought our own. The corkage was $15. Our waiter was arrogant and unaccommodating. When my wife's cocktail came with a lemon instead of olives he did not offer to return it for a new one. He returned with olives on the side. We will return, but we were not thoroughly satisfied, mainly because of the waiter."
