    It took 15 minutes for them to buss the table for us and we ended up moving chairs to an open spot. It took another 20 minutes for them to take our order, our food came before the drinks. My drink was extremely strong, it tasted like rubbing alcohol, the one they brought me instead was great though. I accidentally dropped my napkin on the floor and it took 20-30 minutes for me to get a new one. I had to remind him 3 times. The bill with tip was over 70$ for 2 drinks and a sharable

    Great location and would have been a great place for a sunset if it wasn't for the commercial building directly west of the roof top to block the view. Disappointed that my first 3 choices on drinks were out of stock. Some excuse about someone being on vacation and not knowing when supplies would be back in stock, neverminded it being a holiday weekend. May try and go back later in the year when the cooler weather is around and the sunset would be in different horizon.

    We made reservations for 9:00 arrived at 9:01 and was told a party of 18 took over so the sheeting was not available. We got seated in a dirty section for 6-8 with a party of 3. The host was polite and friendly however we sat for over 20 mins before a manager walked by and asked if we had been helped to which we told her no. We wanted an additional 10 minutes before a server approached. She was friendly but did not know if it was possible to make a Bahama Mama. Because the large party next to us was so loud we decided to go somewhere else. The views were amazing, too bad we couldn’t experience anything else.

    Phil is a Rockstar manager @ Rox's Rooftop Bar! He and Tatiana made sure our party was comfortable, accommodated and treated with upmost kindness. They were gracious hosts, demonstrating excellent customer-first service attitudes. We had a wonderful evening thanks to their hospitality. Their professionalism was greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    I usually order the yellowfish tuna which I enjoy, but I wish there was more small plate options. The seating outside sit so far back from the table it should have extra pillows for back support ...Enjoyed the views and service.

    What a great place to take in the views of Tampa Bay and TIA! Outstanding. The drinks are a little pricey but they are also fun and unusual and not something you will find in most bars around here. That helps with the sticker shock! The food menu is limited but the charcuterie board was very good. Overall fun place!

    This place was a very pleasant surprise. We have loved in the area forever and never been here or heard of it and that was one of the things we loved about it. Definitely a hidden gem, and we will be back. Everything about our experience was perfect. Yes it was a bit pricey, but worth it.

    Wonderful seating inside, great tasting food and drinks. Felt bad for our server as she had so many areas to wait on and bar staff was behind with so many orders. Staffing is very hard right now so we understood. Love the venue and everything else about it. Will be back.

    This was a Mother’s Day event. Our reservation was no longer available due to a system purge. The menu is actually for a restaurant on the ground floor but the Open Table app makes it appear that the menu is for the Rooftop Bar. We ate appetizers, had drinks and I barbecued for the family upon arrival at home. Service was good but management had no solution for the mix up with menu or the purge of our reservation. It appears they were overwhelmed. I do not believe I will return.

    Beautiful hotel with one of the best rooftop views in Olive Tampa. Unfortunately we went here for Mother’s Day and their reservation system filed everyone’s reservations up. We arrived and they had had no tables available and for a while it look like we were going to be shut out until three seats opened up at the bar. Not exactly the best Mother’s Day lunch but the staff was amazing especially the manager and bartender who were extremely apologetic for the confusion. Food was very good drinks were delicious and did I mention the view?

    Rox didn't have a table for us. We had to eat downstairs at Julian's. We were lucky to even get a table. The food took forever. We got tired of waiting and left. Some of us never got our food.

    Don’t even try it. No actual tables. Four app items on their entire menu. We arrived for our reservation at noon and were told we couldn’t enter and to come back in 20 minutes. We went downstairs to try to eat at the restaurant and they told us they were full. We moved to the bar where we were told we could order from the restaurant and after 45 minutes waiting for our food, and 2 1/2 hours after our initial reservation, we left.

    Even in the rainy weather, the ambiance was delightful! Christian and the team had great customer service and I look forward to my next visit- I enjoyed the barrel option “old fashions” both for taste and value. My party found the gummy bear based beverage to be a bit too out of the box (and sweet) but enjoyed a sage enhanced cocktail. I will definitely be back and definitely recommend!

    There are no tables here, you will sit on a couch or chair. This is a after dinner spot for drinks & chatter only. The menu is very limited only about 4 things on it & overpriced. We paid $130 for 4 glasses of wine, hummus & their version of charcuterie, which the choice of cheeses wasn’t good either.

    I made a reservation for tonight, but sadly never got a table. The host was very rude to my boyfriend and I. He seemed bothered when we approached the host stand and was not friendly. He told us to wait downstairs at that bar and he would call us. He said he wasn’t told of our reservation and he’d have to “figure it out”. We decided to leave after 30 minutes of waiting downstairs. They called us an hour after our reservation time but didn’t leave a message. I was excited to have a sunset drink here and relax. I’m a tampa local and I’ve worked in the restaurant industry- I get it, but after this experience, I won’t be coming back or recommending to anyone else.

    Pathetic experience. I reserved outdoor seating 10 days ago for a date night. When I came in, the staff was clueless on the reservation. 5 minutes later they took us to a table where chairs weren’t even facing each other and both the chairs were facing the table in front of them where a large group was placed. When we requested another table, they offered us the the random bar seating when clearly there were few other tables free. Spoiled my date, evening and time. Won’t step in again in this bar. They have Lost my business forever.
