A wonderful dinner. We had the vegetarian tasting menu with the matched wines. Very inventive food with well matched wines. The wait staff are attentive and friendly, without being in your space. We will be back on our next trip to Tampa.

Mise en Place translates to "Set Up." We certainly were.
Anticipating an evening of fine dining, that did not happen. When an incompetent Lyft driver could not find our major hotel in the city, we had to request another and got to the restaurant late (obviously not the restaurant's fault.) We informed the hostess that we were now under time pressure with theater tickets. She promised to inform the waiter, but either did not or he ignored it. I asked about their Happy Hour, since we were seated in the bar area despite a longstanding reservation for dinner and plenty of other empty tables. Yes, they had a Happy Hour (for ONE COCKTAIL) from their substantial cocktail menu. It so happened that we did not crave a gin & tonic that night. Other tables received bread before the meal. When we inquired about ours to the bread deliverer, she said our server should bring it. Due to the rush, how or why was my veal scallopini overcooked? The food prices here were exceptionally high and the quality was almost average. For example, all sides were a la carte and over $9 for each of them. The double entendre of the restaurant's name was not salacious, but it was indeed a fair warning in French.

What a superb experience we had . The service was excellent , the food was fantastic, creative and beautifully presented. The service was so pleasurable, it is so hard these days to find old school attention to detail from the Maître D to the Owner who made sure to touch base with every table. Care was taken with new and old customers . It is no wonder this establishment has been around for 30 years! Keep on creating fantastic food Mis en Place! We will be back .

My wife and I dined on February 15 to celebrate Valentine's. We were both very pleased with the restaurant. The steak and salmon were excellent. The atmosphere was nice. Our server, Alex B. did a great job attending us. This was our first time visiting this restaurant and we will definitely return.

We frequent Mis en Place often, as it is convenient for business lunches. The food, service and ambiance are always superb! Patrick is our server most of the time and he is wonderful...always anticipates our needs and takes great care of us and all of the guests he waits on. Highly recommend this spot!

We love Mise En Place! This is our second Valentines Day there, and it was better than we remembered. We started off with the Mise Old Fashioned, which was incredible (and we are big Old Fashioned/bourbon drinkers, so this is high praise), and an amazing cheese plate. Everything on the cheese board was delicious - the almonds, the HONEYYYYY, the raisins... everything. For a starter, we went with the Lobster Poutine (again, because its our favorite thing ever) and the Serrano Ham. The entrees were insane - I had the veal and my wife had the filet. Best filet I have ever tried (way better than Charleys/Berns). We spent a little over two hours feasting on all this deliciousness, and loved every minute of it.

I have eaten at Mise yearly for the past 4 years. This is by far the finest dining experience in Tampa. (Yes, even better than the big, "B.") Amazing appetizer and entree selections, along with the service is on par with any fine NYC dining establishment.

We went to this restaurant because we've always enjoyed the food at the Tampa International Airport location. The food there is always exceptional! So... we thought to try the full-menu restaurant. The food was good, but didn't have the wow-factor we expected. However, dessert (the German Chocolate Panna Cotta) did have that wow factor. Excellent! Service was very good, and the restaurant itself is very nice (understated elegance).

You know when you go to a very expensive restaurant and the food is less than impressive? This is not that place. Every dish is worth the cost. Mise En Place is one of the Tampa Bays best fine dining experience. The servers are extremely knowledgeable in the dishes, the restaurant itself takes you somewhere else, the food is perfectly plated and the drinks are made to your exact specifications. I would go back to Mise en Place over many other places in the Tampa Bay Area because the experience was truly like no other. Don’t spend your money any where else if you are trying to have a special night with a loved one.

My friend and I went to Mise en Place for lunch to celebrate both our birthdays. We used to go for business lunch many years ago. We returned to find out that Mise en Place is still top notch and met all our expectations and beyond. Food was delicious from the appetizer Pulled Duck Poutine to the entrees Pan Seared Scallops and Fish of the Day to the desserts Creme Brûlée and Chocolate Pecan Toffee Mousse. Our server Kelly M was very pleasant and attentive! Thank you Mise en Place for a wonderful birthday lunch dining experience!

Outstanding as usual but I had two qualms this time, which I never do but the chocolate Napoleon dessert I ordered, the puff pastry was burnt the first time it came out and the second it was a little less burnt. Puff pastry on a Napoleon should be a golden brown not a dark brown and never have the taste of being burnt! The second qualm I had this time was the server, he did not properly speak English therefore it was really hard to understand what he was saying or order from him, and he wasn't very welcoming, Hi welcome have you dined with us, or how are you liking your meal. He did not do these simple courtesy's that a server should be doing throughout the night. Otherwise everything else was great as usual, I could eat about 10 of those Foie Gras dishes, absolutely divine!

The food and service was great. It’s perfect for a romantic dinner. My only issue is the seating. The corner booths are awkward and uncomfortable. Chairs would be a big improvement.
I would definitely go there again
