Best seafood/fine dining in downtown Tampa, for sure.
Castle was our sever and he was excellent. He gave great recommendations, was attentive, and fun!
Glass of wine was vastly overpriced,food was very good however portions were very small.Location .servers,atmosphere was outstanding
Another perfect evening by the Riverwalk to celebrate a birthday. Service and food were both impeccable!
We were excited to eat a special lunch for a birthday celebration but service was very lack luster. We arrived with our children and were given no children’s menu, the hostess said she would bring one but after 20 minutes we still had not received one and still hadn’t had a waitress come by. We were also sat with no silverware or napkins and had to ask for both which they did not bring together so we had to ask again for them. The waitress was nice enough but seemed very overwhelmed with only 2 tables with any people at all. The food was alright but not worth the price and time we spent. The location is great but we were very underwhelmed with the experience.
The food was delicious but a tad pricey. Service needs some improvement, our server worked very hard, but they appeared to be short staffed. Also, when we made our reservation, it wasn't clear that all of the inside seating is in the middle of the lobby next to the bar. So, if you don't mind a noisy environment and sitting out in the open with people walking all around you, then you'll be fine. The outside seating looks awesome as long as the weather is nice.
Waitress was spread thin and couldn’t give us appropriate attention, appetizers came out within 10 mins of ordering then we proceeded to wait over an hour for 2- surf and turfs. Long time to wait between
Food was pretty good, portions on the small side. Pretty expensive too. Service was a little slow and it seemed like they were not well trained, but they were nice. Considering the prices, I would expect the service to be better.
Service/Kitchen is extremely slooooow. Don't go if you're in a time crunch or are starving. Food was overall good. Place is beautiful and on the water. It does get hot though & they don't have anything for that besides small fans that don't do much.
Reserved table not ready and was sat at an somewhat remote table. Space heater not working initially but did get fixed. Server was good. Food quality was poor.
VDay...made reservation in January. Had our table moved to right in the traffic pathway outside-table was cocktail size...too small for dinner. Altogether somewhat disappointing.
Entertained friends from Ireland that loved the setting and food!
The food was good and moderately priced, for a hotel restaurant. However, the service was deplorable. We had reservations and were seated right away. The server took drink orders, but returned 15 - 20 minutes later to tell us that one of the wines we ordered was not in stock. She did bring the other drinks, though. We ordered food and a different wine, but by the time the food arrived, another 20 minutes later, the wine that was reordered still had not arrived. One of the dishes ordered did not arrive until, near the end of our meal, we asked where it was. No apology was offered, but the food came 10 min later. There appeared to be two or three servers for the entire restaurant; way understaffed. The service was unattentive and rushed.
Great to sit outside and have dinner. Went before we walked to hockey game. Very relaxing with good food and drink.
Our table was in the hotel lobby. Disappointing.
Beautiful location and waterfront view. The Florida snapper was outstanding.
This place is amazing! Food was very delicious, we both agreed one of the best meals in Tampa we’ve experienced in a long time. The atmosphere is beautiful outdoor waterfront vibes. Worth it and my new favorite local place to dine.
Absolutely top notch service and atmosphere. The riverfront dining is unbeatable in Tampa Bay. We came for brunch and tried several items and loved them all. Look forward to coming back for dinner.
The food was not bad by any means, but it was also not impressive for a $400 bill. There was not an item ordered that stuck out as something we would reorder. It was a beautiful, brisk night out so we elected to dine outside as they had warm fire/lanterns outside that were a nice touch and appeared to offer warmth to the guest who were dining outside. Unfortunately, we were sat at a table that did not have a lantern. We noticed that there was an unoccupied lantern positioned next to a nearby table that was not in use by guest at any point during our dinner; approximately 8-10 feet from our table. When we asked our server, Joe for a lantern to be moved just a little closer to our table, so that we could be comfortable during our dinner, we were denied . Joe did involve his Manager as he appeared to feel bad that we were chilly and that he did not have the authority to wheel the lantern closer to our table. Joe's Manager came over to our table and stated that she would not move the lantern closer to our table; she then turned the unoccupied lantern off. Our request required moving the lantern (that is on wheels) approximately, 8-10 feet so that our table of 4 could be warm and comfortable during our $400 dinner. We felt that we were provided poor customer service and that this restaurant lacks in the understanding of how important it is to extend appropriate hospitality to its guest. There are many restaurant choices in this area and we will not be patronizing this one again due to our overall experience.
Great views and food. Nice place!
The wine list is extensive and great! The food options were limited and I felt that the menu overall was small. The food that we did order however was good we felt it was overpriced for the items we ordered. I would tend to try another establishment prior to coming back.
Had lunch out on the patio - drinks were good. Food was mediocre honestly and very expensive.
Service was mediocre. Ambiance & entertainment was very good. Food was decent.
This restaurant revamped their entire menu. The cuisine is versatile and delish!!!! The cauliflower dish is so yummy and the calamari with the roasted jalapeños. I mean, I’m so happy they have such yum food. Everytime I think of good food to eat, I think of Anchor & Brine.
They also accommodated us for our birthday. They gave us an ideal table outside and the service was superb, welcoming and friendly. I had roses in my cocktail. So “Royal”. It my bday on New Years and my sons bday Jan 3. They really made it a great experience.
Thank you to all of the team who made us feel so welcome!
Excellent location, view, ambiance, and service. For a great view of the water, sit in one of the booths.
The food was below expectation. Grouper sandwish was way too dry and pancakes were definitely not worth the money.
Very disappointing. We were here for NYE and because it was cold requested inside seating which ended up in a booth by the escalator & bathrooms (what ambience!). Service was neglectful and food just ok (don't order the cavatappi unless you like green soup. Typical hotel restaurant. Not good.
Service is horrendous. Unbelievably bad wait staff, which is unfortunate, because the food is good.
Ambiance great..service terrible..food over priced and average.
Very nice location and views on the water. Service poor, we had 3 meals all were sub par.
Service was come and go. Felt rushed.
Food took a while. I got the lamb shank, my first go the steak. Food was warm when arrived.
Water was not refilled.
Reserved an outdoor table. We were put behind a pole. When we saw better locations we were told they were reserved even though bo one sat at these tables during our entire meal. Entrees wew serve before soup and coffee never came.
Food was not good at all, out of 4 of us no one really liked the food. The drinks were weak. If you sit inside you are at a table inside the hotel lobby! I would not recommend this place to anyone for any reason!
Excellent service in spite of the dreary weather. Outstanding wines and attention to detail and exceptional food with a surprise dessert!
