    We celebrated our anniversary here and we’re not disappointed. The service and food were both excellent and our waitperson treated us to a special dessert. The only downside was the headlights co to halt shining in my face from the street. They need drapes or something to block out the glare.

    Our table of 4 each had a delicious dish. Nice server, good environment, we were able to talk and visit without excessive noise. The salmon was tender and tasty as were the shrimp and grits. We had coconut shrimp and calimari to start and both were crispy and tasty. Nice casual evening out.

    It’s definitely declined a lot from its former high level of quality. The menu is limited and very expensive. At first it didn’t seem too far out of line with other high end st. Pete restaurants, but the food was incredibly subpar and small portions. You just don’t get much food and it’s not very good. We got the burrata appetizer and it sounded great, but it was literally just a store bought round of burrata on a plate with toast and dried apricots. No effort whatsoever for the $16 price. I got the scallop dinner for $34 and it was four scallops that were nicely cooked, but it had pieces of fried bacon fat that they call bacon lardons. It should have just said fried lard. The winter squash was ok, but again, not much effort was put into this dish. That was the entire meal. The wine list is also limited , but those prices seem in line with other restaurants. We used to have beautiful brunches here and High quality meals. We won’t be back.

    We had a birthday celebration for one of our friends. 14 ladies sat inside had a delicious luncheon excellent service. And they were kind enough to accommodate Separate Checks for us. And it's a great location for seeing the rest of downtown. Valet parking was excellent and free if you remember to get your parking pass validated. I would definitely come back again. I understand their happy hours are excellent too

    Beautiful restaurant great waiter. Grouper Oscar was good mot excellent the seafood special was very disappointing small thin portion of dried fish with dull accompaniments. Sent back one order that we requested served with salad so dry and overdone very little salad. Was replaced with a much higher quality fish a good portion still small salad. With the price and the ratings received we were overall disappointed at the quality of cooking from the kitchen. Waiter was upset and tried everything to make up for the poor fish quality and even served us all ice cream sundaes on the house. Won’t go back. Parkshore Grill next time

Our cocktail was a smoked old fashioned for 2 - presented in a beautiful clask and just the perfect size rock glass. appreciate the block ice cube! The grouper was cooked to perfection. Would recommend definitely .

    Our waitress was very nice, but she left alone to cover 2 complete sections of the restaurant and the place was empty. We we’re seated in the far end with no other tables around us. Very long wait for the food and only got our wine after we we’re almost done eating. If you’re short staffed and the place is that big, then why not seat tables in the same section closer together so your staff isn’t running across the entire place trying to cover everything. Waitress did her best, just very poor management

    After making a reservation and arriving on time we were told our table wasn’t ready because the prior reservation hadn’t left yet. Two uneven tables were shoved together and we were seated. Our waitress was rushed and not very attentive. Our food arrived and my salmon was burnt. When I mentioned to the waitress she argued with me that it was supposed to look that way?! Finally after arguing with me she took the plate, came back a few minutes later apologizing because she finally saw it in the light. Second dish came out hammered and worse than the first. Very embarrassing since I suggested the place. Never again.

    Our servers name was Carla. I am a local, and I’ve been going to this restaurant for four years. She is by far the best server in Saint Petersburg! I highly suggest you ask for Karla when you’re being seated. As usual, the muscles did not disappoint. The clam chowder soup was amazing with huge chunks of bacon in it. I love this place. It’s managed very very well.
