It was my husbands birthday so we wanted to try a new place. The restaurant is very small and there was a large party celebrating a 20-something birthday- no masks, no social distancing. The pizza was delicious and the chicken was very tasty. The place was potential if they rethink their seating to take more advantage of the beautiful view. Lovely hotel.

Great location and ambiance, good service, but food is hit or miss. Beet Hummus with roasted vegetables was yummy as well as Short Rib empanadas. But Nduja Pizza was disappointing. The sausage couldn’t be tasted at all. This beautiful location on Tampa Bay has great potential with improvement of food.

We came for breakfast and everything was cooked perfectly! We will be back. The coffee is great and we had the steak and eggs and the avocado toast with king crab. Our table looked out over the bay and the noise level was low, so we could enjoy a nice conversation over our meal.

Menu is somewhat limited but still offers choices. Food was very tasty overall. The pasta and lamb spring rolls were really good, we didn't like the duck wings. Great view from the restaurant and they have seating on the patio. Free valet parking, as they validated the valet ticket.

We have been to Julian's many times and always find Sabrina to be warm, welcoming and attentive, without being overbearing. She knows the menu well. She is a big part of why we keep coming back.

We are locals and came on a Thursday night at 530pm to check out the rooftop bar and restaurant. Unfortunately the weather was not conducive to outdoor seating and there were no available tables inside, so we had to skip the inside bar and instead went straight to our reservation at the restaurant. The atmosphere is really pretty and modern. The view is lovely. The cocktails were very good. The star of the dinner was the filet mignon dinner. Not only was it cooked perfectly, it was extremely tender. The mushroom sauce and potatoes make it a great bargain for the price compared to local steak houses.
Our server Nicolette was very professional, approachable, knowledgeable and just plain fun. We will definitely come back. Parking signage could use some improvement. There didn't seem to be any parking other than valet but Nicolette informed us that in the future, they validate.

We went for Valentine’s Day and were a little disappointed that our view of the bay was nill. However the food was good and our waitress could not have been sweeter.

The food and service were great. We have several shared plates that were delicious. To top it off, we had a fine range of drinks and desserts for our sophisticated palates. Great place for a date night, plus the hotel has a roof top bar with a great view of the Tampa Bay and skyline.

Fantastic date night for Valentine's Day and one of the best eating experiences we have had since moving to Florida. From beginning to end there was not a single part of the meal that was not excellent. Additionally the service was top notch, and though the dining area is perhaps a bit small, it has a nice ambience.

My wife and I essentially shared everything, starting with the smoked duck wings, having the cavatelli and chilean sea bass for the entrees, and ending with the poached pear. Everything we had was artfully presented, bursting with flavor, and perfectly balanced (which has become increasingly rare in modern fusion restaurants which often substitute originality for enjoyment). Even the drinks were great.

Though a bit on the pricier side, given the quality of the food and the overall experience, it was definitely worth it. Perfect for a date night or possibly brunch given the scenic locale on the water (as well as outdoor seating). We look forward to coming back when the weather is better.

Valentine’s Day dinner before a concert. Julian’s is in The Current hotel and it is very new and beautiful. Our server, Nicolette, was excellent. The pasta dinner she recommended was amazing and the steak my husband ordered was the best he’s had in a very long time. When he ordered his red wine, she asked if she could bring a sample of the one he ordered along with a sample of one she thought was similar but better. After he sampled them, he ordered the one she had suggested. The special Valentine’s dessert was delicious. Our food came to the table quickly and excellently prepared. We plan to go back soon.

Great new restaurant! The food was fantastic, and the hotel in general is very chic and modern. We had the tuna, crispy zucchini flower salad, watermelon salad, bao mi, and clams. Everything knocked our socks off.

Lovely view of Tampa Bay from a restaurant in a new, ultra cool Tampa hotel. Service was very strong and the emphasis on locally sourced ingredients a plus. Menu is somewhat eclectic and limited but everything we tried was delicious. Fresh oysters, duck wings, stone fruit and burrata salad. Definitely worth taking a chance on a new place. We will return to try their dishes as they change with the seasons. DO have the churro ice cream desert even if you are full--the churros are light and delicious.
