Pricey and wasn’t thrilled with the food. Ordered seafood parilla. It was just ok and didn’t finish it. Ate outside and was surrounded by flies. Will not go again.

Dinner was very good and service was excellent. I was confused about the lamb. I had lamb previously and was different than what I had this time. The lamb was good but before it was better. Also on your website the lamb was not shown at all.

Ate there last night with my boyfriend to celebrate my promotion. Our waitress was horrible. Never came by the table, had to ask another waitress for things. I ordered the snapper that she recommended and didn’t like it. I had to flag down the other server again just to let her know and try to order something different, the original server came up to me with the fish the other server took back and started yelling at me that the fish was perfectly juicy and I was wrong. I happened to see the owner running around so I asked her to come by and she was able to change my order instantly. The other server never even apologized for her volatile behavior. Used to be one of my favorite restaurants now I won’t be back.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We usually sit at the bar, but we tried a table last night. Terrible service, waiter didn't know the menu, what type of Vodka, a very poor experience. I felt even worse for the people beside us, first timers, they sent their meals back twice, then bus boy just took her salad on his way by. Their bill was wrong.. they will never be back. Not sure what is happening here, but they need to work it out. We won't back for a while.

Steak was incredibly good and the yuca fries were stellar. Highly recommend the Oaxacan cocktail if you like Mezcal. And the chocolate cake - scrumptious.

Everything about our visit was superb! We arrived for our reservation and our table was already waiting for our small group (6 people) to be seated in a quiet spot in the restaurant. The service and quality of our food and drinks was outstanding! I’m definitely looking forward to going back for date night with my spouse!!

We had a great time. Unfortunately, because of shortage of workers they were understaffed. Felt they did the best they could and will go back. Service was a bit scattered and hectic, but I believe they only had two servers and support staff.

Food was great, service was good as well but I have asked if they celebrated birthdays, the waiter said no but he said he would bring a candle with my son's dessert. He did not bring the candle nor he acknowledged my son either and that was disappointing.

We've been to Argentina, spent quite a while there, and were hoping to find the food and dining fun replicated here. Perhaps a far-fetched expectation, and it turned out to be so. The empanadas couldn't touch the heavenly light pastry one finds in Buenos Aires, and the parrilla featuring several cuts of beef was tasty and well cooked by Stateside standards but nothing like cono sur. One standout on the menu: a dessert cake featuring peaches, dulce de leche, walnuts, and meringue--delicious!

In addition, we would like to highlight the excellent service provided by Betsy who was perfectly attentive and thoroughly knowledgable about the menus, including the wines. We are grateful to her for making the event enjoyable.

So, to summarize, if you are looking to replicate a cherished memory of dining in Argentina, lower your expectations. But if you want to eat well here in the states and be treated with great courtesy and care, then you will walk away happy.

My family and I truly enjoyed the Argentinian meal. Mashed potatoes was excellent. Chicken Milanese was fantastic. Great service. Nice wine options. The only thing I wish was more authentic would be a small charcoal grill at the table (parrillada style) instead of small tea light candles keeping the food warm.

First waiter brought out some drink that wasn’t so good but it might be an acquired taste. It will stand out in our mind. Food was fabulous and came to the table quick. It was late on a week night and a good find for traveling through the city to our destination.

My wife and i were in St. Pete on an anniversary getaway. She is Cuban/Colombian and grew up on this food so her expectations are pretty high. And we both loved it….Food was terrific —- especially the empanadas and chicken… the service was top notch (they were attentive but not hovering) and very personable. Highly recommend.

Our server was also the bartender so we had to wait a Long time. Finally when we got our food, they messed up our entire order. Server didn’t come back till about 25 mins and by then we just didn’t care. We finally got our correct order and it was cold/undercooked. Would not go back again.

The empanadas were very good, but very dry. The entrees were wonderful and the portions were ample. However, my drink order (skinny margarita) was made wrong twice, and it was unbearably hot and stuffy -- the A/C definitely needed to be colder.

We enjoyed our visit. Our server was friendly. A few hiccups but nothing major. We ordered the empanada trio to start. The meat empanadas were a bit dry but served with the chimichuri, was pretty good. Loved the spinach and cheese empanada. We sampled two wines, a Pinot noir and a Malbec, decided on the Malbec and got the bottle. We ordered the steak parrilla platter for our main course. Server recommended the black beans as one side and we opted for those as well as the yucca fries. Ordered the steaks medium. Came out more to the side of well, but they are thin cuts. So I’d say, if you want medium, maybe err to the side of medium rare. Steaks had a nice seasoning of salt, tasted great. More than enough food for two. We took home 2 of the steaks and half of the beans. The atmosphere is modern and chill. Had a reservation for 7:30 - arrived early and was seated immediately. In my opinion, affordable Latin fusion cuisine for the price range of the area. Great parking options nearby, as well 👍🏻

Server was overwhelmed and gave little attention to us. Didn’t check in after food arrived, as there were issues with our food. Didn’t refill waters. Food didn’t match the menu or what the server said. Steaks were thin and tough. Drinks took too long to come from the bar, so we had to cancel them. Overall poor dining experience!

This was our first trip to Renzo’s. The service was a bit spotty as the wrong appetizer was brought out and one of the sides was in correct. The food was good, but lacked flavor. The empanadas were dry and warm vs hot. However the bar service was good. Between the spotty service and bland food we will not return.

I can’t say I’d return here. Came with friends, 7 of us. We first ordered the Gambas (shrimp app) and it tasted like bleach which we all agreed upon. The server could not explain this and of course we returned it. Then we also had ceviche and the tuna app which the guys said was pretty good. The Bianca salad was very good as well as the Caesar Salad. My biggest complaint would be that our main dish came so quick after getting our apps and salads that we had to let it sit there on the table until we finished our other food. We had two platters of the All Beef dinner for two which consisted of about 5 different steaks and a short rib. The only thing we could tell the difference was the short rib. All the steaks were not labeled as to what was what and they all tasted the same. We ordered one medium rare and one medium and it came out medium and well done. Just way too overcooked! There was plenty of food as we left about half of one platter. Sides were ok. All the desserts were really good and the restaurant did pay for those to make up for the mishap on the shrimp. Doubt if we’d go back for dinner and we were way too rushed with the food coming out so quickly. Not sure if they are open for lunch but if they are I’d go back for a salad and dessert!
