According to the City Guide Tampa Bay, "The “Grand Lady of the Bay” is home to Marchands Bar & Grill, a swank eatery that keeps vigil over the downtown marina. Remodeling efforts emulate the Mediterranean decor present throughout the Renaissance Vinoy Resort while utilizing rich woods and marbles. Keeping up with changes in guest expectations and healthier lifestyles, the menu also reflects a brand new era -- gone are the tired sauces and a heavier fare of yesteryear. In their place, the menu reflects the flavors of the Mediterranean with touches of other global influences, such as a macadamia-encrusted fish might be served with a papaya or mango salsa, while the lamb is redolent of the most virgin olive oil with touches of fresh rosemary. Careful preparation coupled with exquisite presentation renders each plate an experience. This is dining to be savored, not merely experienced."

    Our server, a Marchands veteran of many years, was terrific as usual. The food was very good though the bone-in ribeye was not a top quality cut of meat.

    Greeted with indifference. Seated at too large a table for the party. Very slow service—main courses did not arrive for 40 minutes after order. Chianti ordered by the glass was not fresh. But individual server was conscientious and friendly.

    Although we the had problems with one of our meals, they more than made up for it by replacing it with another selection. It's a lovely place to visit with family. Our waitress Heather was excellent....very friendly and informative. She was MORE than accommodating to our needs. Although the menu has been downsized considerable since we began meeting here 20 years ago, it still was ample to make a choice.

    I have to give one star as we never had the opportunity to dine. After 15-20 minutes of not being acknowledged, we left and walked to a different place. The room was not overly busy but it seemed like none of the servers wanted to stop by. Beautiful room and hope that it was just an off night.

    I had gone to this restaurant for many years for special occasions, but hadn't been in quite some time. I took my daughter for a special birthday and it wasn't even very crowded. The appetizer was good. but then it took a long time to get two salads with a piece of grilled chicken on them. The chicken was delicious but the salad was small and the dressing on mine had no flavor and seemed watered down (creamy goat cheese dressing). Oh, and there was construction going on very close to the dining room. It sounded like a loud saw running just around the corner in the dining room. Not the experience I expected for the price or caliber of property. The hotel is beautiful however.

    The 1925 Menu is the bargain to beat bargains! Excellent 3-course meal inside the absolutely gorgeous Vinoy Hotel! (The regular Menu is amazing,to say the least.) Love the joy of people watching, looking out at the fire pits with occasional live music and waterside. Fabulous!! If you get a message that it is "sold out" from Open Table- place a call directly to the Marchand Room .

    Always an elegant place to eat. That said, the staff should have enough sense not to vacuum next to customers during lunch, especially when the place is almost empty. Surely they could find something better to do.

    If the coq au vin is to remain on the menu, it must be prepared correctly. A dry flavorless boneless breast of chicken does not properly represent this lovely french dish.

    The room is a lovely historic space and the tables are nice with very comfortable seating. Service was attentive and everyone enjoyed their meal. REGRETFULLY, the hotel guests patronizing the center bar were drunk and shouting...for over 2 hours. UNACCEPTABLE. Management MUST create an environment that is welcoming to all. We spent $500 on dinner for 4 persons. Was ruined by trashy, conference attendees and their uncontrolled behavior. Would NEVER recommend, as a Platinum Elite member of Marriott. STAY AWAY!

    Service outstanding. Very accommodating. Food was delicious especially the sushi, mushroom bisque (delicious, frothy, and beautifully presented) and filet (tender, perfectly cooked). Scallops were good but not as good of a sear as I would of hoped and risotto was a bit too mushy. Desserts (carrot cake and flan) were amazing. An enjoyable evening.

    We enjoyed a breakfast while staying at The Vinoy. The service was outstanding, the food was delicious and the friendliness of the staff was amazing. The menu choices were very nice and they also brought a shot glass complimentary smoothie as another gesture of their hospitality. Definitely we will be back for breakfast here. Leisurely, non-rushed enjoyable experience.
