Every time I dine here the experience is wonderful. Chef Marty has incredible flavor combinations in his appetizers and main courses. You will not be disappointed, and more likely you will be amazed. Service is great, too. Enjoy!

Excellent as always! I brought two friends with me--one hadn't been there in years, the other was brand new to Mise en Place. One woman said it was the best salmon that she's ever had.

The waitress probably was new and it showed. She messed somehow the cutlery up all the time. Her collegues did not help her a lot. The food stood too long on the pass. And therefore was cold. The (only two) scallops were served in an oblong bowl and that dish was served without a spoon.
The waiters seemed to knew some patrons that were served very fast. A bill of 237,00$ was too much. I will refrain from visiting ther again. and, and, and...

I hadn't been to Mise en Place is a couple years and was lucky enough to get a last minute table on New Year's Eve. The service and food were amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed each course and the wine pairing. Mise en Place is now on the top of my dining out list in Tampa!

We had been there before which is why we returned for another special occasion. The food was as good and as interesting as we remembered. The little bench "booth" we had was not comfortable--should have asked for a table. Service was good but not as exceptional as we remembered. It seemed a little noisier than we remembered and noisier than I would expect for a restaurant of this caliber.

Pate, fois gras, beet salad, escargot poutine, lamb entree, maccellen 12 $19, glass of $25 wine = $174

Food was fine, amuse bouche was delicious, lamb was excellent, waiter was ok.

For the price paid, it was average. I’m glad I checked it off my bucket list but I don’t feel the need to come back.

Food was excellent, however it was only warm, I guess problems in the kitchen , the Manager was very apologetic We will go again hoping it was just a onetime issue. You should go but make sure you tell them to make sure the meal is hot. A great wine list

A beautiful intimate restaurant with impeccable service and attention; delicious, memorable food, a lovely experience. My husband will return more often and will bring friends. I'd forgotten about this local jewel, but it's quickly risen to one of our very favorites in the Tampa Bay area.

My wife and I planned a nice night away to Tampa and based on the reviews and pictures I chose this establishment(we are from Cincinnati), The ambiance is excellent, however we were at a table for 2 and in the middle of the floor was a very obnoxious group of people. They were very loud and nothing was said to them. I understand the expense of dining here and it was a large group that were obviously having a family christmas party (everyone knew the topics, you could not hear anyone at your own table over their boisterous conversations. They should have been placed in a more private or semi- private area (table 10+). The service was excellent but the food was only so-so. I had the salmon on a bed of risotto. Salmon was not any better than I have had at Bonefish or even Red Lobster and Risotto was bland. My wife had the steak it was cooked fine but not really glazed or garnished with anything that tasted like the extreme expense of the meal. We do not mind the expense when the food warrants it or the experience was worth it. The service was excellent but the rest of the dining experience was not.

We had a great time at Mise en Place! Four of us shared a bunch of small plates and appetizers, as well as a bottle of wine. We loved the salmon carpaccio, oysters, and the scallops- we loved the little kick of spice with the scallops! I was really excited about the octopus but didn't realize that it was served cold, but it had great flavors.
Can't wait to go back and try some other dishes. The ambiance and overall aesthetic was wonderful and our server was very attentive and helpful.

While the server was present and trying very hard to do the best he could, he could definitely benefit from some training on table etiquette for a waiter. But definitely an A plus for effort. We had the four course sampler and it was excellent!

The service here is extremely formal. The space is beautiful; it looks a lot like Oxford Exchange. We found the food other than the salads to be unexceptional. The entrees were served warm which was surprisingly because the place was fairly empty. We skipped dessert. It seems like people return here out of habit more than anything else.

Mise en Place used to be our special evening out...we haven't been there in awhile and unfortunately we were a little disappointed. Service was great however, the meal not outstanding. Could have been an off night. As we were waiting for our check we told a gal who was setting a table that there was a bug crawling up the wall. She said, "Oh! My " and hurried off . We didn't see her again.

This was our second time at Mise En Place. It was understaffed, which really affected our experience. We were seated quickly, but then had to wait for a server, had to wait for a drink menu, had to wait to put in our food order, had to wait for our drinks, etc. Overall, it took an hour to get our cheese plate and drinks. We ended up paying for our meal and leaving even though we had planned to eat dinner there. This doesnt seem like an every day occurrence, but for the cost of dinner here, we have other options in Tampa.

This was my first experience dining at Mise en Place. We were seated immediately upon arriving and our table was excellent. Our server Jeanie was absolutely amazing. Prompt, knowledgeable and very friendly! She really made it a special evening. We started with cocktails from the house menu, the old fashioned was well crafted. For dinner we opted for the tasting menu with wine pairings. An excellent choice! Each course was perfectly prepared and visual captivating. The flavors were amazing and we enjoyed each course immensely. The wine pairings were spot on and enhanced every bite. All in all a fantastic evening and a place we will definitely revisit!

We dined here for our anniversary dinner based on many reviews and lists that have this restaurant highly-rated. We have been to many places throughout the Bay Area and always like to try something new. Unfortunately, this restaurant fell short of all expectations. The restaurant reminds me of an upscale and uptight hotel bar/restaurant and the food is very bland. The menu was promising and had a lot of options, however, everything we ordered had little to no taste. Whether it was the uninspiring cheese plate (hardly any presentation at all), to the bread that is “baked in house”, to the filet mignon and the Brussel sprouts - there was hardly any flavor/taste at all. Even though I had mentioned in my reservation that it was our anniversary dinner, there was no mention at all in our experience (not a huge issue, but a simple comment would have been nice). At this price point, there are many more options in the area and for this reason, we will likely not return.
