Server, Moosa was fine. The bartender was slow and provided red wine glasses for the champagne and very slow with other drinks. Had to ask young assistant server twice for replacement utensils.

Awful experience. The hostess forgot to tell our waitress that we were seated was the start of our awful experience. From dropped drinks, to food being cold and prepared wrong,everything went wrong. At one point, I felt I was on a hidden camera show and the restaurant was pulling a prank.

Food was ok but, the lighting very dark so we couldn't see what were we eating.

The host at the front (a gentleman) had his mask on the chin and that made us feel uncomfortable.

Good food and service, but very expensive for St. Pete. I moved here less than a year ago from NYC. When I saw the price of the steaks, I thought I was in a different city. Is it good? Yes. Is it expensive? YES.

Great cocktails at the bar well done!! Dining room was way too cold and was uncomfortable. I asked to see what could be done but it was obvious that they could not control dining room separately or chose not to do anything about it. At one point my table was only 1 of 2 occupied. It was not a prime night of the week.

Excellent food. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the charcuterie board and the peanut butter chocolate dessert. Server was super stretched as he was running 12 outside tables. Not his fault and he was pleasant and trying his very best. Would have liked to see the manager and other inside wait staff pitch in to help him. Will visit again.

Vacationing in St. Pete for the Labor Day Weekend and to celebrate my birthday, which actually fell on Labor Day (7th) this year! Loved the location of this restaurant and it’s vibe as soon as we walked in! Excellent wine selection and menu! Chose appetizers consisting of Shrimp Calamari and Crab Cakes. For my main meal ordered an 8 oz Filet Mignon ala Oscar with Bernaise Sauce which was cooked perfectly to my request of medium rate! Our server, Mary, was lovely, provided excellent service and had a wonderful attitude! A fabulous birthday dinner celebration! Would definitely return and highly recommend..

This restaurant claims to be rooftop which it is not. There is a bar that is rooftop that doesn’t take reservations and has a long line to get up there. Very disappointed that is claimed to be rooftop. Food was ok but my filet was undercooked no one seemed to notice that the middle was not eaten and therefore no concessions were offered

This was good overall as I treated my girlfriend and her visiting father. Food was delicious. Only negative to me was how loud other customers were inside. It created difficulty in being able to talk amongst ourselves. We were hoping to hear more music in the background. So a possible recommendation is maybe to somehow regulate by advising customers to keep their voices down for their own table?

My friends and I enjoyed dining in the lounge by the bar for drinks and apps. It was a nice atmosphere with delicious cocktails. We ordered salads for dinner but mine wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. Since we were there for a birthday celebration, we kind of expected a little something special but the service was just mediocre.
