    The server who waited on us was extremely pleasant and friendly. He was attentive and made us feel welcomed. However, the hostess (both) were unwelcoming and had RBF. They did not greet us with a smile, their disposition was saying I don’t want to be here and I wish you would get out my face. But other than that the food was very good and the sevice was excellent.

    GO! All was awesome- server to food. Exception was the ladies restroom- we arrived at 11:45am and left after 2:00pm- still in the messy condition- we advised the host stand the 2nd time before leaving.

    Do not order the grouper and crab.. for $33 I got an over fried tiny piece of grouper with a plop of crab stuff on top. Underneath that was a ton of mushy lumpy unseasoned rice with some canned kidney beans poured on top… I wish I was exaggerating I told our waitress this and she offered me a side of fries… everyone else’s mean was ok.. the best thing on the menu was a pastrami burger. That was the only thing that everyone liked. We were disappointed, great location and beautiful view , just bad food unfortunately. We will not be going back.

    Came here for a nice night out with my husband and son. We made our reservation but were running a few minutes late. Tried to call the restaurant three times to tell them we were running late as per their policy, no one answered. When we mentioned it to the host she curtly said “Oh yeah, we’re not answering the phone because we’re busy.” Luckily we did get sat. My husband loved the grouper and crab, my son loved his pasta, and my steak was a bit over cooked but tasty. Our server was great, although understandably slow when she got seated a 10-top in addition to her current tables. Dessert was standard. Might come back for the sushi but otherwise would probably be a pass on our next trip up. Too many other options in Tampa.

    Took a client to dinner. The restaurant was not busy. The server was very pleasant. The service was slow. We were never asked if we wanted something to drink other than water. I ordered a salad, it didn’t arrive. The entrees arrived and I mentioned the salad. I just had them take it off the bill. The meals were good, not stellar.

    Shouldn't be charging what they charge for oysters...they were pitiful. In reality, I'm surprised a place like Jacksons even sent out the oysters we received. Everything else was fantastic.

    My family dined here and would never recommend. The food was very mid — very much like a tourist place and not what I expected given the good reviews. We had the rib-eye, burger and truffle fries, rigatoni and a Caesar. The truffle fries were good. :/

    We sat for 20 minutes before anyone came to our table, than waiter brought water. We ordered drinks that took forever. We put sushi in and the food came out with black hair rolled in it. Didn’t see our waiter for awhile so I asked someone else To assist. Ordered more drinks took 20 mins. Serve was so beyond slow and food wasn’t as good as usual. Waiter wasn’t a people person was very upset because this was one of our favorite places to do dine.

    Phenomenal view at sunset Service was not present last evening on a Sunday at 8PM - took over 15 minutes for someone to come to our table to take our drink order Then we had to ask for our salad before the main course would arrive Then the pork chop was so over salted =- a shame as it was a pretty piece of meat

    It was incredibly hot in the restaurant, overpacked, and the food was not good for sitting too long in the buffet warmers. You could tell the staff was overworked by the amount of people. I was referred to the restaurant by a friend, but honestly, the value isn’t there for the experience.
