My second time but I had reservations this go round and sat at a table. Took my husband and neighbors. They all love everything about our evening! Music was perfect. Dinner, delicious! I love their version of grilled oysters from North Atlantic waters. Great night and we’re looking forward to another trip over. 👍😊

Hidden within Hyde Park Village, behind Sesame, at Jekyll, nothing is as it seems. A sophisticated cocktail lounge, serving up rare vintage spirits and hand-crafted molecular cocktails – each with a story to tell.

About the restaurant
A new generation finds a city in renaissance, and we are proud to be a part of that renewal. Taking cues from Tampa’s history of 17th century pirates, traders, and privateers, Punch Room at The Tampa EDITION, the first in North America, brings forth a menu dedicated to flavors and spirits of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, the cradle to so many contributions in the evolution of punch.

Join us for this mixology-guided tour of the islands, as we dive deep into the regional history of punches, exploring the terroir of cane spirits and a rich variety of tropical fruits and spices. Drop anchor, raise a glass, and settle in.

We had a wonderful late night dinner last night and never felt rushed. That's one of the many things we love about Quality Foods Market. Chef Chris and his staff put as much effort into the last table of the night as they do the first. For real Italian, it doesn't get any better, but my husband and I would also bypass every steakhouse in Tampa Bay to have Chef's ribeye. It is in my top five of steaks anywhere in the world. It really is that good!

We were seated right away and the food/service was amazing. It’s essentially very spread out restaurant seating throughout the lobby of the Marriott. I was a little worried that we would be neglected when we were seated off in the corner at a booth but our service was excellent and the A+B burger was off the charts delicious.

We went for lunch and wanted a quiet place with light fresh food. The server, the service and the food were outstanding. I studied the dinner menu and will definitely return to experience it
