Had not been to Armani's in a few years. It remains a nice atmosphere for dinner, food is excellent. The recipe for the lobster bisque has changed and I think I prefer the old one. I ordered the sea bass and got the Bronzino which was quite good.
Everything was fine but it was a cool evening and we were a little cool, especially our legs.
Top notch service with beauriful rooftop views.
Eclectic menu .
Truly a special place .
We met our friends from England in Tampa for the night. This meal was wonderful! The view is breathtaking, even at night. Food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Service was perfect.
We have enjoyed Armani's several times over the years and this is the first time I have written a review -- All the times before it would have been 5 stars across the board -- this time the service was disappointing. Our meal took over three hours -- no due to great lingering conversation, but because of slow and a less than endearing waiter who I had to request come to our table twice.
The gentleman at the antipasta bar was the bright light of the evening -- if you go there, don't miss that experience and great appetizer selection.
There are many great restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. What sets Armani's apart is the service. The staff is excellent! They don't hover and were always there when we needed them. Everyone was very knowledgeable about the menu offerings and gave us great information and recommendations. It's a very complicated dance for servers to be friendly, attentive, helpful, pleasant and professional without intruding on a patron's dining experience. In "fine dining" restaurants, I often feel that the servers are controlling my evening (kind of a pet peeve of mine). Our server was very professional and seemed authentically friendly. He was helpful, efficient and even funny. And all in just the right amounts. We were not rushed through dinner at all. In fact, more than once we were told to take our time to decide what we wanted. And when we did decide, he was right there to take our order. As I said, there are plenty of places where you can get a great meal (don't get me wrong... the food at Armani's was excellent!). But I would give the service at Armani's my highest possible rating. It made all the difference. My wife and I will definitely go back again!
Unfortunately, both my wife and I got sick from the food that night and the next day
Outstanding ! Good food, great service ! Best view in town!
Always delicious food and great service. Wish the piano music would be a bit softer.
Came here to celebrate our engagement & everything was outstanding!
