Maison Blanche is a first class French restaurant, on one of the better dining experiences that I've had in my past 30 years in the Tampa Bay area. The ambiance was elegant. The food was creative and delicious. What struck me most was the service. We had a 3 course prix fixe dinner for $65. My date and i selected different appetizers, but wanted to share them. Our waiter offered to split them in the kitchen and brought them out beautifully plated. So we actually had a 4 course meal.

Very good french restaurant and excellent service.
All our dishes were well presented and also very tasty.
If I would have to give one thing to improve I would say improve the cheese platter with higher quality cheese and more sophisticated bread basket

We could not have picked a more elegant and perfect dining experience to celebrate our 35th anniversary. Our evening was so special that it truly sparked feelings that we had first felt dining out as a couple many years ago and it felt wonderful. Thank you Maison Blanche!

We wanted to celebrate my husband’s birthday and this restaurant has always been on our list. We were hesitant to bring our kids to such a nice restaurant but while on vacation, there isn’t much choice. We are so glad we took the chance. The food and staff were amazing. We will put this on our rotation every year when we return.

Excellent food and service. We went there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The owner Mrs Martinez and the daughter were there to greet us. Food was top notched, very delicate. Full of flavor. And not pretentious at all. Prices for the quality, quality and ambiance were very reasonable. We had an excellent wine called Corbieres Rozeta 2014 which was very reasonably priced. Dishes-wise we had beef tartar which was perfectly prepared with a lightly cooked, partially raw, delicate soft boiled yolk within. We also had a blue crab roll with curry mayonnaise which was also excellent. Main courses were awesome too. We had perfectly prepared Mediterranean seabass, easily one of the best preparations I have ever had. My husband had the suckling pig which was very nice. For dessert, we had the tarte de pomme which was served with house-made apple sorbet, both were delicate and tasty. We also had a nice cheese plate with their house baked raisin bread. Finally Mrs Martinez gave my husband a nice bowl of airy, delicious and lightly baked pastry pillows (gougiere ?) to wrap up our dinner. It was very nice. Will definitely recommend to our friends and families.

This restaurant was phenomenal!! Everyone was so accommodating due to the lateness
of the traffic with the Vice President's visit at Long Boat Key. The service, the food,
the ambience and the genuine niceness of everyone, made our celebration of our
33rd anniversary a memory we will always remember. This place should be on your
list to visit every year...it is on ours!!!!
Many thanks to everyone for making our experience at Maison Blanch wonderful!!!

Wow! A unique restaurant on LBK. We loved our dining experience at Maison Blanche: delicious food (try the mushroom soup, swoon-worthy!), superb service, and a subtly dramatic ambience with the whites drapes, beautiful dark floors and great chairs. I especially appreciated the generous spacing between tables; makes for a quiet and elegant atmosphere when you don't hear everyone else's conversations! We will be back
