Our server, Evan, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable regarding the menu, kidded around with us and did a professional job serving our food and drink. We shared an appetizer of crab cakes and enjoyed the various textures. Our entrees were the mahi mahi and the tuna. Although the prices are not cheap the portions are generous. We shared the cheesecake with expresso. The coffee was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy seafood

Service was just ok and we ended up sitting next to a very loud patron. Food was ok. We ordered potato planks (which was listed as a side) and they brought them out 10 minutes before our main course.

The evening was nice! It was a relaxing experience with delicious food. My husband got the steak and crab legs and I got the crab legs. They come out steaming hot and cut in half so all we have to do is pull the crab meat out and enjoy it. We have been here several times and will be back.

Everyone was more than satisfied with the quality and portion of their meals. I wish there were better by the glass wine options. $15 for a Napa wine is not outrageous, but the selection was limited?

The food was very good and the prices were reasonable.. but the service was not good. Our waiter had an edge and we found him to be very unpleasant. If we go there again, I would make sure we do not have him as our waiter again.

A lovely restaurant where we have dined many times before, but they were off the last time we were there. We all believe it was because our server was not at all attentive. We sat for 35 minutes before he came to take our order and that was only because we finally waved at him. Our food was warm, not hot at all, and my husband had difficulty cutting his pork chop because the meat was so tough. We brought out of town guests with us, so the experience was rather embarrassing for my husband and me. I will have to think twice about returning.

A friend and I enjoyed a delicious meal at 400 Beach this past Monday evening. The service was good, and our meals (seafood combination grill and ahi tuna with soba noodles) were both excellent. Coupled with tasty cocktails, good dessert option and pleasant house music made for a very nice evening.

We visited 400 Beach Drive for a late brunch/lunch on a lovely winter day. We had been there before but had noticed that although the place seems very successful, both the quantity and the quality of the food had deteriorated.

You can't help but be impressed by the variety of items on the menu and the buffet offered on Sundays looks appealing. My husband availed himself of the buffet and I ordered blackened Mahi tacos from the menu. I went to the buffet with him just to see what was available. For the price, there is a nice selection. The problem was with the quality of what he chose to eat. We love breakfast pastries but these were obviously not house made and resembled items that come in cellophane, although these were jumbled in a basket. There was a decent, if overdressed Caesar salad, a nice bowl of fruit, a pasta salad and a small, and not very interesting selection of cheese cubes. The blintzes were good, although extremely sweet. The hot dishes that he tried were overcooked and the sauces were characterless. The seafood chili was thin but at least had some spices in it. The cold shrimp was so overcooked and tough as to be inedible. My husband rarely eats meat and isn't crazy about omelets so we cannot comment on the quality of these offerings. The chocolate ganache on the dessert table was definitely the highlight of the buffet.

I ordered the fish tacos many times in the past. There are two large tacos in an order. The amount of fish in the tacos was small. The fish was overcooked and under spiced. I flagged down our very sweet but overworked waitress and asked for some hot sauce, which was delivered promptly. The taco had a good amount of avocado and a small amount of lettuce. There was a tiny container of mango salsa, which provided a nice contrast of both texture and flavors. The accompanying potato planks were nicely fried, not greasy but a bit salty for my taste. All in all, not an experience we will repeat soon.

Food was great, which is not always the case in restaurants in New Years Eve. Our waiter, Z, did a great job, from serving to getting party hats and horns for us! We finished our dinner with just enough time to walk through the beautiful park to see the midnight fireworks.

This was our first time trying the brunch. There was a wide variety of food and everything I tried was delicious. There is something for everyone. There were some vegetarian options with the salads, pastries and steamed vegetables. Our server was very attentive and constantly checking to see if we we’re doing ok. Mimosas are an additional charge. Complimentary valet parking is available, however when we arrived (on time for our reservation) no attendant was on duty yet. We waited a little bit, but no one showed up. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. I will go again.

Used to visit more often when living in St. Petersburg. Since moving to Dunedin don't get in as often but for special occasions this is the place. Be it Sunday Brunch or a casual dinner, you won't be disappointed. The free parking around the corner is a nice plus!

Superb in every way. Great meal in a relaxed, modern atmosphere. Waiter was attentive, but not intrusive— gave us ample time to visit between drinks, apps, dinner. The decor is very Florida with paintings from local artists, sea videos on screens and sculptures, but not kitchey; very classy. I found the price reasonable, especially considering the elevated food. This was our second time here, and I’d consider it the best seafood restaurant in Pinellas County; at least among the many we’ve tried so far. We will definitely return, and this is the place we will recommend to our friends from out of town as a place to meet for dinner.

There were four in our party. We enjoyed every bite. I did not like the pomegranate martini they served but I drank it regardless. I did advise my waiter afterwards. The service was good but could have been better however many holiday parties were there. The waiter did mess up our checks. Two to each check and he used my card for theirs and vice versa. Didn't understand how but he finally got it corrected. We shall return. One thing we didn't appreciate. I had made on line reservations for four. Table only. Two with walkers and wanted window seat. Got there, they take us to a booth. When we tell them again about our reservation they leave us and have us go towards the back. No, we reserved window seats. Nothing available! When you are dealing with elderly people, standing is not good nor is walking from one location to the other. Not getting the reservation you requested was sad. It was our Christmas time together before they leave and they so wanted to see the lights from the park. We should have been notified that our reservation could not be honored.
