Patrons all around us being paid great attention, but not our table.
My wife and I both had the pancakes very very dry and we were not offered any extra syrup and would have if we saw waiter once in a while . This was our second time here but sadly our last.

We came in for the Father’s Day brunch and had a good experience. We want to come back for a date night since the atmosphere looks like great night time ambiance material. They also had a wine store attached which was really cool. Our service was great. Everyone is super professional and courteous. I’m pretty sure they went the extra mile to get our daughter some crayons and printed off a little picture for her to color. Thank you!!

I was concerned at first by the limited brunch menu. There were three of us on a Saturday at noon. We each ordered something and EVERYTHING was fabulous. We will definitely be going back. The dessert cafe "Chocolate Pi" which is in the same hotel had an array of delicious cakes cookies and teas that were reasonably priced. We live in Clearwater and it was definitely worth the drive.

Expected more than standard hotel restaurant class food, given that this property is supposed to be food-centric. Servers also kept disappearing for unacceptably long period of time, wine was served inappropriately ice ice cold. Atmosphere really nothing to write home about.

Have had many a pleasant breakfast at Elevage. When I bring out of town guests (as is often the case) they are always happy at the variety and selection. Everything from the Sourdough Pancakes to the Collier Club and oatmeal all receive a "thumbs up". They do a perfect poached egg. The chicken sausage are made "on property" and are delightful. Coffee is hot, strong, and tasty. Refills appear like magic. Will continue to enjoy breakfast here as long as possible.

Our evening started with a drink in the bar area, where a group of guests were very load & unruly. The manager was going around to the tables to apologize for their behavior, rather than asking them to leave. The bar is super noisy and it was challenging to carry on a conversation.
The menu was unremarkable, with a few offerings from the steakhouse but muted nonetheless.
Our server was great and very attentive. Overall, average experience.

This was out first time dining at Élevage and we will definitely be back! The service was outstanding. The food was delicious and exceeded expectations. Everyone in our party enjoyed their dishes and we tasted each other's as well. The wine list is also impressive. The environment is rustic and modern. Fun place to grab a drink or enjoy dinner.

Everything was amazing from the moment we walked into the restaurant to celebrate our birthdays. The hand written birthday cards were a fabulous touch and made the experience even more intimate. I highly recommend Élevage to anyone visiting Tampa and I can’t wait until my next visit.

Third time there; always good. They did a great job catering to my vegan Son and girlfriend (did not have to throw something together, they already had it). Also, made the occasion of my wife's birthday special with some nice complementary drinks and dessert. As far as us carnivores, outstanding filet and grouper. Will come back often. Cheers

Hands down this was one of the best meals my husband & I have ever had! Both the salmon & the grouper were top quality, the presentation was award-winning, and we had great service. It’s hard to find this combination of qualities in the most highly recommended restaurants.

We highly recommend Elevage!

Good brunch spot with nice outdoor seating. Service outside was great. Started at the bar as we were early for reservation. Felt so bad for bartender who was being run ragged waiting tables and trying to make all the drinks for a busy brunch - always feel bad for bartenders that are also given tables - running back and forth from behind the bar to tables - neither the bar or the tables get proper service.

We enjoyed the evening for our anniversary. Spent over two hours in a relaxing atmosphere our waitress checking on us but not Hoovering over us. If we had to say any thing negative it would be it was a little cold . So next time the wife will bring a sweater .

My wife and I went for the first time for our anniversary. The BBQ oyster appetizer was disappointing due to the miniscule size of the oysters. The blackened grouper dinner was amazing and the pecan brownie dessert was great. Service was okay but not exceptional. Not the consistent excellence of Bern’s, but we’ll likely try it again.

Due to free wine tasting in the bar, the restaurant noise level was an absolute roar. I was moved from my original seat to a table farther away but with all the hard surfaces and open walls, it was a minimal improvement. The waiter brought me a water and then took 20 minutes to take my drink order despite there only being 4 other filled tables. Then I waited another 20 minutes for him to come back to bring my drink and take my order. Another couple (that was served by another waiter) was served and left before my food arrived. My meal was good but not great. I didn’t bother ordering a second drink or desert because of the poor service and only okay food quality.

I went here for a birthday brunch and ordered their bourbon pancakes and they’re definitely worth the hype, extremely delicious and the green apples on top added that extra thing. With that being said the service itself wasn’t up to the par that their food is at, our server was pretty slow in terms of refilling water, ordering our food, bringing the check when asked, etc. But other than that the ambience itself was amazing.

Our service was great and the ambiance was nice but the food disappointed. We started with an amazing selection of cheeses, soup, and wine. However, the entrees and dessert lacked. The salmon was insanely salty and the spaghetti was very rich with little to no balance in the dish. We had a selection of macaroons for dessert that did not impress.

This was our first visit to Elevage, which we've known by reputation. The concept is ambitious, and the involvement with Bern's makes it intriguing. There are some excellent interpretations on "comfort" food and "classic" US favorites - an excellent steak tartar, amazing BBQ oysters, for example. Other dishes seem to not quite make the mark, although tasty - steak frites could have been more interesting, for example. The room is a bit challenging - Is it modern chic? Is it elegant dining? Is it upscale pub? The bar scene seemed to be the strongest part of the design concept. Our biggest disappointment was the wine list - lots of mediocre wines at inflated prices - one of our major points when we look for quality. There were some strong names on the list, but there were unfortunate choices of vintages that pulled down the value. Dessert was excellent - innovative, tasty.
