The service was friendly and speedy. The food was a bit dry and overcooked (mahi, snapper and chicken)

Paul’s Landing in The Vinoy Renaissance Hotel was a very pleasant experience. We ate outside on a beautiful evening with a great view. Our server was great. He was extremely helpful and attentive. We can honestly say that the seafood entree was one of the freshest and most flavorful we have ever had. It was cooked to perfection. The smoked beet salad was wonderfully tasty. The oyster Rockefeller was excellent. I highly suggest trying this delightful restaurant and hope to return in the future.

Would recommend eating outside. It was chilly out so we ate in and the lights seemed very bright and it was loud, which is fine during the day but this was for a romantic dinner for valentines day. First time here. Server was beyond great. Once we got use to eating in such a brightly lit and noisy venue, we enjoyed our time there. We had the fried chicken (I've had better) and the whole snapper which was very delicious. Also the Brussels were some of the best we have had.

Paul's Landing was a little loud inside so we sat outside, which was delightful despite the cold weather. The heat lamp was great. They were very accommodating and helpful. The food was pretty good and would probably go there again.

Perfect, low key locale on terrace overlooking the bay, in the wonderful Vinoy, easy walking distance from Tampa/St. Pete ferry.

Enjoyed grilled and blackened grouper sandwiches. One was served with tasty fried Brussel sprouts that were so delicious and unusual. The other order was served with a very well prepared salad. Our server, Kelly, was excellent. Nice selection of cocktails available, too.

Easily one of my all-time favorite meals! Donny was our server and he was an absolute delight and a genuinely good guy. We sat outside and since it was a bit chilly, Danny pulled over a heater which kept us nice and toasty throughout the meal. The drinks were delicious and we were both impressed with the edamame hummus. I had the grouper sandwich which was spectacular and the key lime pie for dessert was scrumptious. I will be recommending Paul's Landing to everyone who visits St. Pete!

Can’t wait to go back to Paul’s Landing!
We went as a family and saw a Christmas
Movie on the lawn. Definitively would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxed time with great service and food.
The view is amazing too.

Beautiful view, great service, great food. There's a LOT that could be done with lighting and ambiance, and it was a holiday weekend, so there were dozens of kids running around even late evening, but we'll be back, for certain.

We were seated next to a very noisy group of young men, why put guests together when the restaurant was 10% full.

I do appreciate where the restaurant was in context of the pool area, but I do not like plastic drinking vessels.

Total contrast to the Lobby bar, where we had a final drink.

Wanda was our waitress. She was pleasant, helpful, and personable. I wish there were more like her. She did an excellent job of relating the history of the hotel. Even though both of us are locals in the area, she relayed information we didn't know. It was fascinating.

The restaurant is situated off the pool area and is adjacent to the Vinoy marina. You can follow the signage from the lobby on a circuitous walk through the hotel or use the stairs from the sidewalk just past the garage entrance ramp on 5th Avenue.

There is s bar, and both inside and outside tables. The restaurant is elevated and offers splendid views of the marina, waterfront, and the pier under construction.

We loved the fish tacos made with grilled grouper and served with avocado salsa, cabbage slaw, and a lovely charred corn and black bean salsa.

Very beautiful spot no matter where you’re seated. Service was excellent and friendly, the cocktails were good and the seafood was cooked correctly, not always the case eating out. Maybe a little more imagination and variety on the menu offerings would put this place at a higher level but very good nonetheless.
