Our first time here and it was wonderful. We were celebrating our 24th anniversary. We live in North Tampa and decided that a French Bistro would be wonderful.
Our server was Jeffrey, and he made it an amazing occasion to remember. The food was very good, but it's really about the overall experience. The service was excellent beyond a fault. The ambience was delightful, and the people around us were regulars and made us feel so welcome! We'll be back for sure.
Try it - You'll love it!!!
Great setting and authentic..French bistro style. The pomme frites were not as authentic as we would’ve liked..but the beef Wellington app, Chilean sea bass all cooked to perfection.. the creme brûlée was good, but cold. I prefer it warm. Nice wine list. Will return!
Chef Ryan is a magician in he kitchen. Justin hands down best severer and bartender very knowledgeable on pairing wines and cocktails with food.
Great experience, as always. When I made this reservation around Christmas, I was under the impression that it was almost entirely booked for Valentine's Day. Yet, there seemed to be many empty tables. Was I misled?
Ambiance was excellent; good choice of wines and food though they ran out of moules (mussels), fish dish and ratatouille dish. Escargots were too overpowered with cheese and herbs but still was tasty. Great dessert choices that my wife enjoyed. We would go there again when it is not rushed/hyped during valentine’s week
Another delightful meal at Parts of Paris, perfect for my sister's birthday.
Everything was delicious.....and the service was great! A nice, elegant dining spot unique to our neighborhood!
Overall we had an amazing meal starting with some hand crafted cocktails with real muddled fruit. Our server was attentive and we never felt rushed. The food was outstanding and the desserts over the top.
My only complaint woukd be that I am quite sure I wasn't served decaf as I requested as I was awake the entire evening after our 4:15 dinner reservation. I can't say this for sure, however, I suffer from awful pvc's and really need to be sure a coffee is decaf. Lesson learned, no more ordering ANY type of coffee out. It's just not worth the risk! Given the length of my review I may still besuffering from over stimulation! Go to Parts of Paris you will be glad you did!
We had an amazing experience. We sat outside . It was simple but classy cozy. The fabulous jazz tunes played in the background. Our meal of steak and mussels we cooked to perfection. Service was warm and friendly.
Definitely best meal in town.
Everything was good: food, setting, wine etc.. but i would reserve the 5 stars for truly amazing experiences
Overall one of the better French food in tampa area
The fish special of the day was wonderful!
Pricey but quite excellent ingredients and preparation start to finish
Just Fabulous!! Duck Confit was Spectacular, Tile Fish the wife loved .
Great little place, we will defiantly return.
Great customized service. Very attention to detail. Friendly staff. The owner greeted us when we checked in :-)
Parts of Paris is romantic and fun. The food is outstanding and the wait staff is great. Highly recommend the filet and escargot. The Smoked Old Fashion is off the charts.
Everything is delicious. I’ve been here 3 times now and will keep coming back. I’ve been for Sunday brunch and for dinner as well as just drinks and desserts. This is my favorite place in all of Tampa bay. Not only is the food fantastic, but the staff are amazing too. I love this place!
The food was delicious but my husband and I went on a Saturday evening and it was very busy and noisy. We had a couple besides us that were fine but a large group on other side who were loud. We were relieved when they left but then another large group sat down in their place who were even louder. Our waiter was very nice but service was slow. I believe we were there for at least an hour and a half for just two people. We will return sometime but not on a Sat night.
Tucked away in a house on the edge of a residential neighborhood in Safety Harbor, itself tucked away in the quiet northwest corner of Tampa Bay, Parts of Paris was a find. Intimate and friendly, it is a lovely space for a couple or for a business quartet or quintet. The food is french bistro meets seafood, and IMHO, a very high quality rendition. I had a grilled swordfish steak special that was quite probably the best swordfish I have ever had - and I've eaten and cooked and eaten a LOT of swordfish! Thicker than most swordfish steaks, it gave the chef some play in the cooking and ended up perfectly with a crispy outer crust and a delectably tender moist interior. It was accompanied by charred baby carrots, roast fingerlings, and a just-right amount of a sauce whose ingredients I could not decipher but whose taste was a lovely accompaniment for the fish. Like the food, our waiter was a perfect balance of humor and respect, attentiveness and distance, helpfulness and discretion. One concern; he seemed to be identifying their house Bordeaux as "Chateau Margaux" (I only wish!) In fact, it was Domaine de L'ile de Margaux; a quite-good but not close to premier cru wine. This might have been my misunderstanding, but I still advise some care in this regard. Their prices are high but do not seem to be out of line with similar high-end restaurants I've eaten at in the Tampa/St. Pete area.
Excellent...as always. Parts of Paris is never a disappointment, and we have been patronizing the restaurant since day one. Parts of Paris is our very special place! ❤️
If you are planning a special meal and you do NOT want to speak with or hear your dinner companions, Parts of Paris is the place to go.
We have been to this restaurant a few times before and were aware that the restaurant is small, full of hard surfaces with very little sound absorbing material and the tables are close together. But the excellent food was worth this usually minor discomfort.
This time, though, there was a table with four gentlemen (?) whose conversation was loud enough to dominate the entire restaurant and became increasingly vulgar as the evening wore on. Open Table's Noise Level of "energetic" doesn't come close to describing it and It was obvious that most of the other diners were also disturbed.
When we mentioned this to our waiter, his only response/reaction was: "We're not known for being quiet." He repeated this several times as we declined dessert in our haste to get away from this unpleasant environment.
We did not expect "quiet" but a certain amount of civility and respect for all the patrons in a high-end restaurant.
We feel bad for the chef whose fine cuisine is being served under these conditions but we will not return to enjoy it.
My partner’s filet was very good, but the beef Wellington appetizer ($22!) was dry and nearly flavorless; beet salad was average. Others in our group enjoyed the French onion soup. Overall, overpriced for what I ate.
A find in downtown Safety Harbor well worth the drive if you are not nearby, or, are just visiting the area as were we. This small French bistro restaurant (in a remodeled bungalow) offers a varied menu of interesting dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers (squid, foie gras) and entrees. The duck preparation was excellent and the seafood stew was loaded with a variety of shellfish and fish. We would have likely enjoyed a selection from the salad offerings, but, did not need that much food for our meal. There is a nice sized bar off to the side which was busy with patrons dining, without a TV visible to the dining area to distract from the dining room ambience. There is outside seating which likely would be enjoyable if the weather were inviting. Keith, our server, was attentive and very helpful in assisting us with our menu selections. It was nice to find a Sancerre available by the glass.
Delightful spot in Safety Harbor. A touch of Paris is true. Our lobster thermidor which was supposed to be an appetizer was great for our dinner. Veggies were a little overpowering for lobster. Crime Brûlée was cold but taste was superb. We had a very enjoyable unrushed dinner for two. Pace and waiter were the best. Can’t wait to return!
Third year in a row on New Year's Eve. Fun to reconnect with Justin Lecea. Keith was awesome too.
Best restaurant in Safety Harbor, and we love all the staff!
Parts of Paris is one of our "go to" restaurants. Love the atmosphere, the specials are always unique and delicious, and the wine list is solid.
Excellent meal, as always. Wonderful ingredients deliciously prepared in perfect portion sizes.
We had a wonderful experience, we loved the intimacy of the restaurant, the food was both beautiful and delicious and the service was just right. It was reminiscent of dining in Paris...❤️ We made reservations for next week!
We feel very fortunate to have Parts of Paris in our neighborhood, and frequent it as much as possible! The brunch is also a wonderful addition on Sundays. Unfortunately, the last two times we have had dinner there, large parties who are loud, obnoxious and drinking heavily have ruined our dining experience. Other tables around us were also noticeably annoyed, and yet no waiters or management intervened in this atmosphere that seemed more like an on-tap sports bar. I do hope that management will recognize that this behavior feels antithetical to an otherwise lovely bistro ambiance, excellent food and very personable waitstaff, where diners come to actually enjoy each other's company as well as the food.
