Overall fit and finish was lacking detail. Stains on the floor, chips in the table, uniforms were rather unimpressive, reminiscent of a Howard Johnson's franchise.
Although food was done to perfection, it lacked flavor.
Water and beverage glasses had massive calcium buildup, stainless steel items look like they had never been cleaned with steel wool. Service was very good and we appreciated the champagne for our anniversary.

Enjoyed our evening and meal. Sat outside and weather was perfect other than the occasional no-see um. Salads were on point as were the entrees. Only disappointment, and in a big way, was the Key Lime Pie. It literally had no flavor, the crust was millimeters thin and the topping was a inch thick of artificial whipped cream. This is Florida where a halfway decent key lime pie is to be expected and even more so from a restaurant of this level. Hell, Publix makes a key lime pie that was 100 times better than the one at Oystercatchers....will skip dessert next time or at the very least, the Key Lime Pie.

As always, the food was spectacular. Oysters were superb and the other seafood selections did not disappoint. Only one misstep - half of our table was given an out of date dessert menu when the time came and unfortunately, two of the bourbons we wished to order were listed but not available. Lucky for us, Oystercatcher's has an extensive selection and we found great choices that were on hand.

We are locals and this is one of our favorites for sneak away lunch or dinner getaway. Lunch is challenging as there are minimal servers and one or two large table seatings like we encountered completely derails the service.

Valet parking was excellent, Venue was nice and quiet with a great view. The wait for a table was delayed because I wanted outdoor seating. The wait was justified by a great view, excellent ambiance and a quiet bug free enviroment. The service was excellent, drinks were strong and flavourful. The oystres were fresh and delicious. The main course arrive on time and was excellent. Truly one of the best meals I had for my vacation. I finished with desert. In summary this was a great experience. The best location in this area and the best meal I had in Tampa. I highy recommend this restaurant.

Decor is dated but functional. Food selection is excellent and very delicious. Our waiter was a bit of a jerk...my mother is 77 and he was pushing her to drink champagne. I almost had to create a scene to get home to back off. Sort of ruined the initial few minutes there.

This is normally one of my favorite restaurants. Not this time. It was employee appreciation day. I took my staff there. It was very difficult for me to get a reservation online. There were very few spots available. However, when I got there, The place was empty! It was so empty that I think the waiter forgot we were there! He disappeared for long periods of time. Sometimes when the restaurant is super empty, the waiters get lazy! This was the case for us today

Unfortunately, my 40th birthday dinner consisted of an overlooked filet and terrible food overall. My daughter’s Mac and cheese tasted fishy and the side for the filet, blue cheese grits, was dry. Our server was just as dry in personality. Top off the bad food and service with unjustifiable prices...PASS AND GO ELSEWHERE.

We thought our servers were super awesome: Robert Kelsey knowledgable, kind, generous. We felt "seen" and "heard" and "valued" -- something to appreciate when it's a special evening.

Note too: we had lunch on arrival and though I was too jet-lagged to recall our servers names, I can tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed the same high level of service and careful attention, excellent margaritas and probably the best fish tacos I've ever had.

Keep up the great work! We look forward to returning and seeing you again. And...the Armani's team (except the antipasti guy, he was tops) could use some of what you all have going on.

Absolutely fabulous time. Food is great and so is the setting. Kitchen seemed to be a little slow as we were a party of 6 and it took 2 hours to get in and out for lunch service. We were in no rush luckily.
