Food was delicious as always and service was fantastic. Great spot for a first date or for normal dating dates. Great portions and gray tasting food.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by our dining experience at Renzo’s in Carrollwood. The wait service was very attentive & discussed the dining options available. Hi he appetizers were varied and interesting in texture and taste. The main course was absolutely delicious. I enjoyed the pan fried fresh fish, while my wife savored the chicken cordon blue. The desserts were delectable, although I would say the serving size is somewhat small. Other than that, we had a wonderful meal at a reasonable price. In sum, we would offer this restaurant very high marks and recommend to others looking for a family-type meal or a date night out! Well Done!! Pleasantly surprised by the excellent food!!!

I go to the on in South Tampa often this was my first time in Carrollwood and I will not be returning. The service was truly terrible. The orders wrong, drinks were not refilled, items were out of stock. It's honestly hard to believe it's the same place as the one on Kennedy. Everything about this experience was sub optimal.

We have dined at Renzo's many times over the years and have always recevied attentive service. This time was the exeption, I felt our table (Party of 6) was neglected. Once the food was brought to us, nobody came back to check on the table. We had to get up and ask for condiments and one of the servers was very short with my father. We also were not offered any water refills. I understand they seem short staffed on that day, however a 5 minute visit to the table would've eliminated these issues.

The ceviche was ok just not spicy enough for my taste. The 12oz sirloin was 3 pieces of thinly sliced beef. I had ordered this steak medium rare and it was medium well to medium. Very disappointed.

Had reservation for Valentine’s Day, waited 15 minutes just to be told we still had to wait. Overheard two different tables complaining about the food and how slooow the service was. So we decided to leave and had to get fast food. Terrible service, very disappointed.

The place was dirty. Tables were not getting cleaned off. No one budding tables. The hostess was trying to take food orders, clean tables and seat people. They were way understaffed. It was Valentines Day but they were not that busy.

The server brought us the wrong wine. Instead of replacing it, she offered 30% off. Horrible approach. Never refilled our waters. Brought the wrong side dishes to our table. The meat was the greasiest I’ve ever had in my life. Very poor quality. We asked for medium well instead got medium rare.

Horrible food, service and lack of cleanliness. My first and last visit there.

This is such a disappointment for Valentines Day. We made a reservation but however it does not look like a reservation is needed. We waited forever to get our drinks and order food. The steak was over cooked and did not give us any napkins at all. Will not go back.

It was Valentine’s Day, and so of course we made a reservation. May has well not had since we were seated an hour after our reservation time (along with 4 other couples). And during that wait, no one acknowledged us, or told us that they would be right with us. If it hadn’t been Valentine’s I would’ve gone somewhere else.

Once seated it took another 15 minutes for a server to even acknowledge us, and our drinks (just waters) took another 15 minutes to come out. Then we ordered, and the food came out quickly but there were no napkins at the table and we couldn’t get any while we were eating because our server didn’t come back over again until we were almost done. Good thing I had some tissues in my purse. That also meant that we got refills on our drinks at the end of our meal; not helpful.

The food was good as we were eating, but it made us sick later that night (this may have been just an us thing but wanted to mention) and then we had to wait 15 minutes to get the bill back after we gave it to the server.

Overall, the kitchen seemed to be on top of things but the front of the house needs a new hostess/manager ASAP. We will never be going back here.

Valentines Day and they were not prepared for it. Had reservations but that didn’t seem to matter because we still had to wait. There was one server on the patio and took a very long time to get to us. Finally when ordered and got our food (parilla de carne) they brought the meat out but no sauces or utensils. The meat got cold by the time we got the sides. Very dissatisfied with the experience. First time here might be the last.

It was a great spot. I like that they have outdoor seating since we brought our dog with us, so appreciate pet-friendly restaurants. Servers were great and prompt! Food was good. So happy they had a spot for us during the eve of Valentine's day. Sangria was great!

We will never set foot or recommend this place in Carrollwood. Not sure why they ignored us, or treated us as if we didn't matter. It wasn't like they were short staffed since they had servers running food to the tables around us. We were ignored for more than 15 minutes after our reservation time and we place our order and walkin guests came in after us got the same order before we did and we still were waiting. It was very disappointing. And I spoke to the server in English and Spanish to let her know how disappointing it was to be treated like that. Unfortunately We never got to taste the food but had to rate the review so gave it 1 star after being there for almost an hour so we left and ate some where else. I would try a south Tampa location next time.

Decided to checkout this so called steakhouse after catching a spring training game. What a mistake. We ordered 2 skirt steaks with chimichuri sauce; one with plantains the other with sautéed spinach. Everything was bland and tasteless. Tostones looked like they came frozen and the spinach tasted like institutional food. My husband whose a big beef eater left half and refused to take it home. We had also ordered a sausage platter as a appetizer which was mediocre but tasted better than the main entrees. The dinner for two was over $70 plus tip; not worth it at all. We waited for service even though there was only one other party being served at the restaurant.

Granted it was Valentine’s Day but we sat at our table for over 20 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. We were never checked on for drink refills or anything, in fact we had to ask a different server for a to go box and our check. I would never, ever write this without merit but we definitely felt ostracized because we were not a Spanish customer.

A pleasant meal with very attentive service. The waiter recommended a nice Malbec and while inexperienced in opening it, was very careful to not spill a drop!
My Marsala was a bit overcooked and was not up to par with other Argentinian restaurants that I have frequented, but it was good. My wife enjoyed her gnocchi.
There were only two tables taken, so it was very quiet but the ambiance, despite being in a strip center, was nice.
We will be back to give it another try, as I love Marsalas, and hope to have a better experience. However, in all, we enjoyed our evening, and we do recommend giving this restaurant a try.

I don't like writing negative review but I have to make an exception with Renzo's. It was my husband's birthday and his parents invited us to dinner. I made a reservation on OpenTable but when we got there they wouldn't give us the table that had a reservation sign on it. I knew that was our table but they went ahead and sat us at a different table. We ordered four different drinks to make a toast and finally two of the drinks were served. Wee had to wait a half an hour for the other 2 drinks. It turned out they had forgotten the drinks and I saw them arguing with each other about this mistake. By the time the remaining drinks arrived the drinks watery. As per the food it was okay -- not Texas de Brazil for sure. It was mediocre. The service was awful. Nobody knew what they were doing. It was a comedy of errors. Will not go to this place again.
