    Our fault. We didn’t realize quite how casual this restaurant is. We were hoping for a more classic atmosphere rather than a sports bar. Very noisy!

    Sister trip. We enjoyed the cold seafood tower for two and special drinks that were refreshing. The seafood had plenty of food for two. And, can be upgraded for 4 to 6.The Vinoy was a special place to have lunch. With free parking on the marina side and the beautiful views from the restaurant, we spent a peaceful afternoon catching up.

    Outstanding food with attentive service. We choose an outside table and enjoyed the view, the quiet evening, and plenty of time to enjoy good company, great food, and stimulating conversation. Recommended for a sophisticated evening with plenty of choices for food, tables, and views.

    Very nice place. We had the snapper, shrimp and grits and crispy Brussels and everything was amazing. Most places their Brussels aren’t crispy like we like but these were the best Brussels I’ve had. The shrimp and grits were the best I’ve ever had too and the snapper was amazing, great flavors and even the corn purée it was served on top of was delicious. We will definitely be back!

    Cold food that took too long. Inedible burger on kids menu looked like it was reheated on a dirty grill. As they should wasn’t charged but better food options than this in the area for sure

    The food was underwhelming in flavor. To be more precise the food had no flavor. The service was lacking the basics of clearing a table between courses and just being knowledgeable and friendly. The prices were high for such mediocre food. I expected more from a place that promotes itself as high caliber.

    It was mid afternoon when we arrived. The pool folks were coming in for refreshments, folks were gathering prior to the playoff game…..it was a fun atmosphere, low key. Food was excellent. We had the seafood tower which was wonderful, drinks were tasty with finger food & dessert. Goes without saying that we’d recommend.

    Our Server, Kristie (I believe), was excellent in every way. We sat outside and the view + seating was outstanding [in the dark, the lights everywhere were lovely] The Seafood Tower for 2 was disappointingly tasteless. We were very hungry by 7:30 P.M. so we ate it anyway. All of it was bland, waaaay too cold, the class were dried up (I ate only 1). The crab leg, while very big, was almost tastefree. I didn't finish mine. The oysters were okay and I love oysters... The shrimp were rubbery although they had shrimp flavor. I ate 1. On the other hand, the 2 orders of grilled sourdough bread were extremely tasty and we wolfed them down. I guess maybe if I were to go back I'd get a hamburger or a salad and the grilled bread. Keep it simple. I'm very highly unlike to return.

    The service was great, as was the view. The seafood tower for two is an excellent value. I had it as an entree for one, and it was perfect. My only negative comment is that the noise level was very high, even though we didn’t eat at a peak time.

    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.

    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!
