They were out of all the items I came there for. They told us after we ordered and we ended leaving and going else where. They should have called us prior to our arrival to notify all the best items were not available

Was such a good night! The service, the food. Since we arrive, a person came to guide as and the host immediately knew who we were and what special requests i did. Thank you so much, we will come back for sure. Our waitress, Lory, was the cherry on top. Thank you so so much.

It’s a small restaurant with beautiful bay views, but the only spot for a party of 6 was by the kitchen door. Even so, our experience was pleasant - very attentive service & delicious food. The menu was very eclectic, but we enjoyed the dishes we tried. We wish they had a happy hour menu.

The restaurant is very nice and kind of casual. We had a great view of Tampa Bay. The food is amazing. The empanadas were my favorite. The Jerk Scallops were also very good. I will definitely go back.

Amazing view and great service; Lovely, modern hotel. Menu was rather limited and they did not have any iced tea? But otherwise a very enjoyable experience. Scallops were very good.

Service was not very good all three mornings we ate there. I would’ve thought it would great, as it being in a nice hotel. Morning staples like salt, pepper and ketchup should be on the table. Had to ask for each time. First day husband didn’t receive his toast. So second day made sure he got toast, but the doubled up on the bacon and no sausage. Then the third and final day he didn’t get his hashbrowns or toast and we had to ask for those.

This is a small restaurant in a boutique hotel. The decor and ambience is really nice. The service was outstanding, both the host and our waitress were really great. The food was very good, however none of it justifies their prices. Drinks are upwards of $16-$18. A personal size pizza was $19. We like to call this "Disney" pricing. I guess they assume they have guests there with no other option so they can charge that pricing. I've definitely been to other restaurants in the area that are as good, if not better, that don't charge those kind of prices.

Jill our server is a pro that handles everything efficiently and with a smile. Tables are well spaced and noise level is minimal allowing private conversation. View of the pool and Tampa Bay is amazing. Complimentary valet parking when dining in. Chef Michael has developed a menu that offers complex, layer flavors across multiple selections. Once the rest of Tampa figures out what a gem this spot is, reservations will become challenging and then some.

This is our absolute favorite place in Tampa. Service is impeccable. The food is exceptional. We always request Lori as our server and Table 15. Lori is the very best and always anticipates what we need even before we ask. You won’t be disappointed here. The view is also amazing. 😎😎😎

Varied, unique menu. Friendly service. Kitchen got bogged down and there was a delay in getting food out timely, but they were busy.
Rox rooftop bar after dinner is a great way to cap the night.

We were on a family vacation in the Current hotel. We went to the restaurant and waitlisted for about 20minutes. They did not call us even after 45 minutes. So I made a reservation through the OpenTable in front of them. They finally let us have a table.
The food was not so good. They are not worth it for a 4-star hotel restaurant. Most importantly, the people for a reception desk should be replaced because of unprofessional management skills.

The only reason why I’m giving 4 and not 5 stars is because of very its located…..pass the reception on your right overlooking a hotel’s pool…..with not a proper space designation. I believe the quality of food with excellent presentation along with a friendly service deserves much better location, perhaps next to rooftop bar they have ?

Wow, what a nice surprise. The Current Hotel atmosphere is so wonderful and Julian is a part of this. The food is excellent. I had the Ahi tuna which was delicious and well presented. Even though the restaurant is part of the whole atmosphere of the lobby, you feel like it's a boutique restaurant. The service is excellent as well. Highly recommend.

One of the best restaurants I have been to in a while. The servers were friendly and the food was delicious!! I highly recommend this restaurant!!
I was celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday. They came out with a dessert that was decorated with the words happy birthday and a candle on top. Everyone sang happy birthday to my daughter. I thank them so much for making my daughter’s birthday special!!

Beautiful view of the water. Food left much to be desired. While the morning service was busy; it was clear that certain tables received their food very quickly while others were sitting there waiting and waiting for initial water and drink orders. I would steer clear of this restaurant entirely. We all get busy brunch; but having visible inconsistencies of service and no desire to fix or offer solutions from the staff isn’t worth it.

I usually don’t like steaks or fish overpowered by sauces or seasoning. However, our appetizers were amazing and the service was good. Plus, the hotel has the best rooftop bar with an amazing view of the water.

I reserved a table for 4 on Valentinesday. Chefs are very efficient, delicious high quality food. We all loved the fries. The ambiance was intimate, they use sustainable fixtures and have a beautiful outdoor view. The service was the best, Eric thank you so much. The kind woman serving water impressed me with her attention as well.
