    The steak was amazing! The shrimp toast was also great but would have loved some extra bread to dip in the sauce.

    Pleasantly surprised. It’s a little out of the way for us but worth the trip. Small but nice bar area and nothing extraordinary about the dining room. But the food delivered and the service was very good. Pricing was in line with most restaurants with similar menus

    Dinner at the K Club was wonderful. My husband and I both enjoyed our dinners. However, the drinks at the Vantage Rooftop Bar weren't nearly as good, plus it took quite a while to get served.

    The reason I chose a 3 for overall, was because the food quality was not as good as the previous time I visited. The quality of beef I received for my fillet was not a choice cut at all, especially for the price of $40. I loved the drinks and our waitress was great. The french fries were too spicy in my opinion, should probably have a spicy warning on the menu. The fried deviled eggs would have been amazing if the eggs themselves weren’t so overcooked. Other than that, ice in the water would have been nice.

    Strong fish smell was there when we walked in. Also menu was recently changed and no vegetarian options and when we asked to add some vegetables , they said they cannot do that . Chicken wings was dry and hard . Disappointed. Overall food was not worth the money .

    Love the new menu! Had the scallops and fried deviled eggs which were amazing! My husband had the chicken agnolotti which was also good but the pasta was just slightly thick and under cooked but he enjoyed it. We had the cereal cake for dessert which was great and would order again also. Looking forward to trying the other new dishes.

    We reserved pretty well in advance expecting a table in the restaurant, but got a high top in the bar (across from the restaurant instead). It worked, but not totally ideal for a business dinner. Regardless, I’d go back or try it again with another business type meeting.

    This beautiful Hotel has perfected Fine Dining for sure. We had lovely cocktails with our great server, Susan, and she then took care of our wine and dinner orders. We both had the Fabulous Deep Fried Deviled Eggs, and Superb Espresso Encrusted Filet which was cooked to perfection. The warm, cozy ambiance in the K-Club Bar made our evening one that we will keep repeating.

    Food was phenomenal and staff was super friendly, atmosphere was disappointing though. Felt like a cheap hotel breakfast spot, music was disappointing too and lighting was too bright. The price of the food didn’t match the atmosphere, although the food was fantastic. Would recommend for the food, would not recommend for the atmosphere.

    This was our first visit to K Club Bar & Bistro. We enjoyed absolutely everything. From the food to the ambiance and service - everything was wonderful. I was slightly disappointed with their draft selection as the two beers I tried were lackluster. We did however really enjoy the espresso martinis. For the appetizer we had the fried deviled eggs which i highly recommend. We enjoyed the rooftop as well and noticed they have slightly different small bites upstairs as opposed to downstairs in the restaurant. Next time we go we plan on eating upstairs and trying the menu their as it also looked amazing. Looking forward to going back!

    Beautiful place, with great cocktails (with the clearest square ice cube I have ever seen in an old-fashioned). We are locals and like to find the best restaurants/bars in Pinellas County and will put this place in our rotation.

    Love this place. The service in the restaurant and bar were outstanding. Absolutely stunning hotel! The food was some of the finest I’ve eaten in a very long time. The Shrimp and Grits are a must - the magical ingredient is corn. Who knew? The Mushroom Bisque was off the charts! Can’t wait to go back!!! Highly recommend. The best kept secret in Tampa Bay!

    The buffet was set up in a ball room. There was not a good vibe. The food selection compared to the price was extremely limited. Drinks were not included, which for a high price point and minimal food selection was not a good thing. After brunch we went up to the rooftop bar for some drinks, that atmosphere was much better. If I sent someone here it would be for the rooftop bar, but definitely not for a special occasion buffet like we had for Mothers Day.

    Liz, our server, was amazing. Attentive but not annoying, went out of her way to take care of us. The food was ok, but there was nothing resembling a vegetable unless you count the green bean casserole that was more casserole than green bean. Also, they put us in a blah, mundane banquet room. Didn’t feel like a special occasion at all.

    We ate at the Easter breakfast buffet. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the place was clean (the pond behind it was littered with trash though). The restroom was immaculate. However, the food was terrible. It was bland, soggy, and some of it cold. Honestly, I’ve had much better food at free hotel continental breakfasts. This was over $30 a person. We might be open to a drink on the rooftop bar one day, but we’ll never eat here again.

    I think the host should have had a podium up closer to that door to the parking lot because we got sat in the bar area and people were coming in and we were trying to cross and had plates in our hand. At first we were disappointed about having to go across the hall, but we did enjoy that room separately and were able to chat and eat. Some of the items were called such as The scrambled eggs, the quiche, and the green beans. Some items were extremely good such as the sausage, and the carrots and the fruit tray. I think we would have been better served if a person was standing there and we selected what we wanted toasted and they put them in the toaster, of course with gloves on, and took them out so that when we were done walking down the buffet line we could come back with some hot toast. After all it was a 32-dollar brunch plus beverages not like when I go to the Marriott and their breakfast is also served which you expect. But all in all it was a nice day.
