Mise en Place Ratings and Reviews
One of the most well thought out restaurants I’ve ever been to! Been here many times and every time it’s a new experience in some way. This occasion we had limited time so we just ordered a bunch of small plates and service was perfect. Everything was tasty and interesting especially the Foie Gras! Definitely recommend this place but make sure you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy it!
upscale atmosphere and good service.
Calamari appetizer was not edible because it was so tough that chewing was impossible. They took it back and did not charge me for it.
soft shell crab appetizer was very good
visual display of all food was very good
Venison entrée was good, but not outstanding (no game taste) and not much flavor
Bottom line: upscale restaurant, but the food was not worth the price
We came here prior to a show at the Straz, lovely atmosphere, cozy and beautiful. Some of the best service I've ever had. Waitress was knowledgeable, helpful but also have you space. Definitely recommend for date night, anniversaries and just a nice evening out
Started with their arugula salad and charcuterie plate. The former was mediocre - arugula was of average quality, not spicy or with much flavour whatsoever. Did not seem fresh at all. The accompaniment to the salad was lacking. It advertised bacon bits, figs and goat cheese croutons. You get maybe 1 fig in a few pieces, some bacon bits.. and two croutons with a smear of goat cheese. It was pretty underwhelming and forgettable.
As for the charcuterie plate, it was simply terrible. Presentation was anemic due to it being on a massive live-edge wood platter. You got 2-3 pieces of each charcuterie.. tons of mustard (?) and minor accompaniments - a few tiny pickles and not much else. That wouldn't be the end of the world if the charcuterie actually tasted like anything. I'd need to eat a lot more than 2-3 of each to actually register their consumption. The only one that actually tasted like anything was the barbecue pork mousse. The rest was clearly very old and lost its flavour long ago. The pickled shrimp was just... unfortunate. Overcooked shrimp that had toughened in vinegar and turmeric.
Service was pretty good and they seemed quite concerned when we left early. Friendly staff but the food was just bad. Place seemed pretty dead, and I suspect there may be some corner-cutting going on.
I wanted some place romantic but yet I could eat at being celiac. Mise En Place hit the nail on the head. We had the chef tasting with the wine pairing and it didn't disappoint. Enough variety and enough to leave full and satisfied! Jeannie was our waitress and she was phenomenal. She was gracious and answered every question we had and even indulged us with the constant picture taking. We were celebrating my fiance's birthday and so she made sure she brought out the dessert with a candle and joined me in singing Happy Birthday to him. The food was the best I have had in a long time. It was a great experience and one we will enjoy again!
Went here to celebrate a birthday. Had the oxtail poutine, burger, and the pepita crusted chicken. We asked the server for his opinion between two options, and he didn't
seem too interested in spending much time at our table so he did not provide any input and we just ordered. Overall, we were underwhelmed, although the burger was very good. For the price point we were expecting an interesting mix of flavors and the chicken especially was dry and lacked seasoning. The menu was seafood-heavy, so that may be the thing to try if you're going there, but with a seafood allergy, pick somewhere else.
First time visit, the chef zucchini soup they offer was amazing, the drinks were okay, the calamari appetizer was delicious, the chicken wasn’t that great, I thought of sending it back thinking it would get better, but just ate the veggies around the dish, my husbands steak was amazing, our server was amazing, super helpful and attentive. Didn’t save room for desert, the crowd is definitely a variety, intimate place. The booth is nice, however the chairs are super uncomfortable. Aside from the chicken that had no flavor, the hostess might need a bit training, to question my reservation for being 3 minutes late on a super busy weekend, is ridiculous question in silence and then bring it to my attention if need be.
We very much enjoyed a quick meal at Mise en Place before attending an evening program at the Henry Plant Museum across the street. We told our server, Lisa, that we had only an hour, and she was extremely accommodating. She took our order promptly, brought everything we ordered at the proper pace (given our overall tight schedule), and was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine offerings. Thank you, Lisa! The food was well prepared and delicious. Although we enjoyed our experience overall, we did note that the decor is starting to look a bit dated--it seems quite dark when compared to some of the newer notable Tampa restaurants. Perhaps some updating is in order?
Premiere visite avec mes amis. Deux d’entre nous avons commandé menu dégustation avec vins d’accompagnement. Menu comprenant entrée froide de homard servie sur un lit d’asperges et edamame pas trop goûteux suivi entrée effilochée de lapin vraiment très bonne. 3 eme service de cotelettes d’agneau(2) servies non pas rosées mais saignantes....cependant, bien apprètées et bien présentées. Je dois dire que l’accord mets/vins était bien fait et apprécié.
Le dessert quand à lui ,selon mes amis qui l’on consommé, gâteau au fromage praliné au caramel était très bon.
Bref j’y reviendrai surement dans quelque temps mais ce n’est pas wow!
My husband and I went for our anniversary. The food was heaven! It might be one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The lobster poutine is out of this world. We split an entree and my husband wanted rack of lamb. It is not usually on the top of my list, but to my delight, it was one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted! Our server was wonderful and although the food is pricey, are server was not stuffy in the least. Extremely down to earth and knowledgeable. She gave us champagne to celebrate our anniversary. We spent about $200 on the food and wine. Worth every penny for our celebration!
Mise En Place is always enjoyable. We routinely dine here with friends, but tonight was our 30th wedding anniversary. The wait staff treated us exceptionally well (as always) and they ensured our evening had extra special touches like champagne and "Happy Anniversary" edible signs in our dessert - all without any input from us. Chef Blitz's tasting menu can't be beat. Maryann Ferenc's establishment is absolutely the best in Tampa.
An underwhelming experience for both food and service. While the foie gras was good, our main-dish orders of venison, the seared tuna and the lamb chop were disappointing. I have eaten venison before and enjoyed tremendously, I would not say the venison was prepared with any imagination or even cooked to a good taste. The lamb chop had too much seasoning and crust on it, also a disappointment. Service was spotty and the server seemed focused on other issues other than keeping our table attended to. This was not the dining experience I expected, and was disappointed.
