I wish my waitress would have taken my order as requested. I don't understand when you only have 1 table in your area and you cannot put in an order correctly. The offer was made to remake the dish, but when you have a limited amount of time to eat, that doesn't solve the problem.

4.8 (13852)
$31 to $50
About the restaurant
Ulele (pronounced you-lay-lee) celebrates the vibrant fusion of ingredients from Florida waters and land once home to many Native Americans, including the legendary young princess Ulele.

Located on the Hillsborough River in Tampa Heights, 400 yards from the Straz Center for the Performing Arts. Indoor and outdoor waterfront dining. Lunch and dinner daily. Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Featuring intricately flavored, visually appealing dishes prepared on our 10' round barbacoa grill.

Ulele operates in the lovingly re-imagined 1903 Tampa Heights Water Works building, which also includes its Ulele Spring Brewery to provide a number of craft beers on tap. Next door to Water Works Park.

Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men in the indoor dining rooms.

We’re new to Tampa, we came here for my husband’s birthday celebration and really enjoyed their local native cuisine. The service was outstanding, the bar outside and green space is inviting and dog friendly. This is a perfect place to sit, dine and unwind.
