Mise en Place Ratings and Reviews
A fairly frequent diner at Mise en Place, we had a great meal. We like specific tables and are usually accommodated We also love Annette our server who is ‘knowledgeable about the food and very helpful. She is a valuable part of the experience. Is Place is not cheap but really a great dining value all in all. We will be back soon. W
If this had been my first visit to Mis en Place it would have also been my last. However, since I've been patronizing this restaurant for the entire 30 years of its existence, I know that they are capable of producing outstanding food. Our last experience was pretty awful overall.
We went for a late lunch, arriving at 1:30. There was one harassed waiter servicing the half dozen occupied tables. My husband and I decided to split an appetizer and salad so that we would have room for dessert as it was my birthday. Many of the appetizers sounded delicious but we eventually settled on fried green tomatoes. Big mistake. The tomatoes were supposed to come with a buttermilk sauce and a pepper sauce . It was hidden under the tomatoes and there was so little of it that it gave very little flavor to the dish. By the time we got the waiters attention and asked for additional sauce, the dish was cold and greasy. The coating fell off as we were eating it and the tomatoes were barely cooked.
The salad which was billed as a Peruvian potato salad with shrimp grilled with some spicy seasonings turned out to be a huge pile of arugula accompanied by 4 shrimp and a tostone (fried plantain) that was fried so hard that I couldn't cut it with a knife and had absolutely no taste when bitten into. The shrimp tasted of iodine. When I complained about these two things to the waiter, nothing was done. There was no offer to replace the items or even an I'm sorry. The potatoes were diced so small, they were almost impossible to find among the arugula and they were rock hard. The salad dressing was decent but neither of us finished our portions.
The only redeeming grace of the meal was the dessert which was layers of crispy filo dough sandwiched with a lovely chocolate mousse.
I expressed the statements above to the waiter at the end of the meal, he did get permission to comp the green tomatoes. Definitely not one of our better experiences there.
Currently parking is a huge problem. After waiting for ages we had to ask the hostess to have a waiter come over and the restaurant wasn't even busy. Waiter said he was waiting for our fourth to arrive, but we three were thirsty and the fourth didn't make it after all. My shrimp salad was disappointing. Three lovely shrimp lots of arugula but no ceviche anywhere and no dressing. This was my first bad dining experience at Mis en Place. Hopefully parking will improve.
Very nice ambiance. The food was great. Everyone in our party loved everything they ordered. The waiter was very pleasant and understanding that we were on a time constraint due to a show. Traffic was awful and we were about 25 minutes late for our reservations. The food came out in time and we were off!! We would definitely go back, hopefully, for a more relaxed, longer experience.
W have been eating at Mise en Place for years and have never been disappointed. Saturday was no exception. The cheese course was great. My wife enjoyed her venison and I have trouble getting past the rack of lamb. Crème Brulee was magnificent. This is a wonderful dining experience.
Mise is one of our all-time favorites. The service staff is sharp and professional; Lisa, our server was on top of it at all times. The wine list was extensive and prices were very reasonable. Our party of four had beef and seafood which were all creative dishes. Sauces were rich and memorable, the seafood very fresh. We HIGHLY recommend Mise en Place. It's one of the best in the region and Chef Blitz is one of the most creative in the Southeast.
Finally had a chance to dine at this "very fine" restaurant. I had the tasting menu which was modified for my me. I loved the choices of crab roll, seared tuna, filet of beef and the best ever pumpkin cheesecake. My glass of malbec seemed to be poured on the light side but this may be because at home I always have a generous pour (quite different when you are the home owner and one can enjoy as much of their own bottle). Our waiter was very attentive and kept our food delivery and dish pick up speeding along.
We're old customers, though we hadn't been to the remodeled restaurant until last Wednesday, November 8. We liked the decor, though the room was a bit dark. The service was exemplary, the bread delicious, and the main dishes, satisfactory. However, the oyster appetizer was disappointing. We've been fortunate enough to enjoy superior oysters, so the small ones we shared compared poorly. All in all, it was gratifying to see that this fine establishment was celebrating a 31 year anniversary. Truly a remarkable achievement.
We were in town for one evening and it was our anniversary. The restaurant was delightful.
There were so many things we wanted to try, so we ordered 7 apps instead of mains.
Our server immediately knew what we wanted and took great care of us. Also great wine list.
A wonderful evening. We’ll be back
Tradition dictates that I take Mary, another Breakfast Goddess, for a birthday lunch in Tampa even though we reside in St. Petersburg. I know in the past she has been hesitant whenever Mise en Place has been mentioned but off we went. We were a few minutes late but no problem with the reservation and we were seated immediately. Service was spot on and the food was delicious. We shared a Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer and there was some left over for the birthday girl to take home to her husband. And they were accommodating about the amount of heat in the sauce. The sandwiches were plentiful and again leftovers were available. On short notice they put a candle in the White Chocolate Almond Cake. Most importantly the noise level was low. My daughter tells me that I always complain about the noise level in most restaurants but this was perfect, just enough to let you know that others were around but not so loud that we could not hear each other. After the meal, we discussed our impressions and it was decided we would come again and bring our husbands.
Based on the reviews my group was disappointed in the food and the presentation. The interior is very nice but we felt like we were dinning in a library. Tampa has many good restaurants serving an upscale menu with interesting choices and great food. Mise ne Place falls short of their competition with the menu items. The food quality fails to match the high end price of the entrees on the menu. I was disappointed with the wine by the glass selections. It appears they short pour the wine by the glass as mine was not the usual 5.5 oz of wine by the glass. There are too many restaurants in Tampa serving better food at better prices. Based on this experience a
return visit is unlikely.
Food was excellent for the most part. I think it is one of the best restaurants in Tampa, and I just realize why we don’t go more often. It is so old school stuffy as far as the vibe and ambience it seems to be going for. ( and we are old!). We believe that we actually had to wait a while before being seated, even tho we had a reservation, because we were dressed casually ( button down shirts and khakis for the men and a nice outfit that I would wear to work). And then, we were seated in a back room with others more casually dressed. Those in the main areas of the restaurant were wearing cocktail attire. I truly believe more people would go there more often if they toned that whole suit and tie thing way down. The food is so good and creative! I bet Marty Blitz does not want to put on a jacket when he dines! This is Florida and this is 2017. Lighten up and we will come back.
