The Hall on Franklin
Usually have a great time. There was an event going on (Aja) so it was extremely loud. Not sure why they would take reservations with an event that big happening. Waited 30 mins over our reservation time and had the option of waiting longer, or sitting at a table pretty much in the middle of the event. My experience was just ok.
Love it here!! So many choices! And I love that you have a server to manage all the different choices!
Think of an upscale food court whereby the server brings you food from 5 different kitchens! Great selections from Asian and Mexican to American, Italian, Greek and then amazing desserts and coffees. The cocktails looked delicious but we opted for glasses of red wines, with guidance from our server who was great at helping us decide.
The concept is a little confusing, but we had great direction from our server. (The place is VERY loud, which adds to the chaos.)
Our cocktails were excellent, and our meal selections from The Fork & Galina were wonderful!
For desert we shared the churro sundae which was mammoth! But delicious!
The only downside was disorganization at the hostess stand - they didn’t register our arrival so we received a “no show” email, which we corrected in order to collect our Open Table points.
Nonetheless, we will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for the kind review and sorry for the confusion on the reservation. We are glad you enjoyed yourself and will be back!
The food was great we were seated immediately and in a great location (all seats are pretty great loca).. our server was very attentive and accommodating and the atmosphere really resonated the locale. Really enjoyed the experience and would totally eat here again!
Thank you Jose!
Great atmosphere, food, and service. Will definitely be going back soon
Thank you. We await your return!
We came on a recommendation from a friend . VERY disappointed. The Hall is a 5 Restaurant concept but the Hall itself is like a Mall FOOD COURT. Very noisy due to the fact that the most guests were teenagers and screaming all of the time. At least this Friday evening.
You can choose the food from one or all 5 restaurants from one Menu but get the food to different times. I had ordered Thai food which came quite fast. My wife from the Greek restaurant. Her food came approx. 15 minutes after I finished my dish. The food we ordered was just OK but the prices way to high. Also, the CHEAPEST red wine bottle was $50.00 (Glass $12.00) Sorry, but for a food court???
Sorry, cannot recommend and will not come back.
This was a great experience. Did not really understand how things ran from looking online, but when you get seated there are multiple menus in one. There are at least 4 different places to order from. Everything comes out quickly and tastes amazing. Side dishes are huge so you know. Oh! The bar is also amazing. They make their old fashioneds so good. You need to try it if nothing else. What do you have to lose.
Thank you for the nice review!
The ambiance is very urban chic and contemporary at the same time. It is a bit loud, but it’s the perfect spot to grab drinks, socialize, and eat delicious food. We will definitely be returning.
Thank you for the nice review!
The food is very good, and the environment is nice. It’s very loud though, and the service was just ok.
Thank you for your feed back we appreciate it.
Great service, mediocre food
Thank you for your feed back
Noise s little to load for good conversation
Thank you for your feed back
Always a great experience and vibe.
The Hall on Franklin is a trendy place with great food and a chill ambiance. I love when the DJ takes over and creates a cool vibe.
I would recommend it as a definite "try it at least once"
Thought it was a bit overpriced
Thank you for your feedback Liz.
The service is very slow and never refilled our water.
Thank you for your feed back appreciate it .
We love the Hall , always a good time had by all. service was quick and friendly. A little loud at times.
First time there and it far exceeded our expectations! Food was delicious, service was spot on and we will definitely be back!!
Thank you Karen for the kind review
There was hair in our food. Server was painfully slow. Pictures attached of hair in food. Manager on duty was too busy chit-chatting w/ friends rather than attending to customers’ needs. Large party that came in infront of us waited an hour even with a reservation, there was a large table behind us that could have sat them but it took well over 40 minutes for restaurant staff to bus the table.
Thank you for your feedback we appreciate it and will work on correcting issues like this in the future.
One of my favorite places to eat however we were a little disappointed this time. Our nephew's food came out wrong 3 times, my mac n cheese was cold so I sent it back, recieved it the second just barely warm...it was just problem after problem. I usually enjoy myself here so maybe it was just a bad friday night.
Easily one of our favorites in Tampa and a goto when we can’t make our minds up. I haven’t had a single item I didn’t like. Happy hour is awesome. House old fashioned is awesome. Lavender mule is awesome Falafel hush puppies are amazing. Korean ribs amazing. Everything is amazing and we haven’t had bad service yet either. We’re 5/5 for perfect experiences
We had fantastic service. They were very accommodating for our needs. Everyone enjoyed their food and the food came out quicker than expected for such a big party.
Great food and cool place just super loud
Thank you for the feed back.
We had a date night with some friends. This was something different and fun! Everyone enjoyed the different food selections. Our server was Rocky and he was fantastic. He was attentive but not in your face, he made great suggestions and was easy to interact with.
Great open ambiance for a group! Loved the concept of offering each restaurants’ menu for a sit down dinner. This provided endless food options, and it left our entire group satisfied!
Very cool restaurant with multiple options to choose from. Upscale atmosphere, very busy but still good service. Only complaint was burnt rice on one of the Mexican bowls. The sweets are delicious.
Had a lunch meeting with 3 colleagues from out of town, was concerned it might be too loud, but it was fine. Everyone was happy with the wide variety of menu selections.
Great concept with food from excellent vendors. The AC was not pumping at the level it needed to be for a hot Tampa day, so a few points docked there.
I had the island bowl with salmon for poke rose and it was delicious. Pass on the avocado bruschetta - very disappointing.
Wife had the stinky buns and enjoyed it.
Great ambiance. Perfect for a Sunday brunch or lunch.
Thank you for the review, Tony. We apologize about the AC! We know these Tampa summers are no joke, we hope to see you back again soon.
Love being able to have a great atmosphere and order at one table from several different restaurant concepts.
Thank you, Traci. Our favorite part is all of the different options as well!
Enjoyed very much. Reservation @ 6- parking great, not too crowded . Food was great. Husband had trout & I had ago tuna poke bowl.
A lot of great options- we will be back .
Only I negative- temperature was pretty warm inside , could have been cooler.
Thank you, Lutz for your review! We do apologize for the AC! We know Tampa summers can be a doozy! We hope to see again soon.
Need to re think their high top tables and chairs very uncomfortable and we switched and both tables were so loose I was afraid they were going to break. Our waitress was ok she had to be tracked down a few times and I felt very rushed. She took our menus when were weren’t even done and had to ask for them back. Tried to get meatballs and they were out which was disappointing.
It was amazing!!!!
The area is a little sketchy (people asleep on the street just up from the restaurant), but the food was very good. We had reservations for a party of (4) on Saturday evening. The place was full, but they seated as soon as we arrived, a little before our reservation time. We were only interested in dessert, and looked forward to ordering from Bake 'N Babes. We had the Sleazy Brownie Sundae and the Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie. We also got coffees from the coffee shop. Everything was very good. Our server was very informative and attentive. This is a neat concept, and we look forward to coming back to try some of the other kitchens.
Thank you for the 5 stars, Daki! Glad to hear you enjoyed desserts! Come back and see us soon!
Awesome atmosphere. Food was great! The Creme Brûlée Cheesecake was to die for!!! My only complaint is that our waitress told us about happy hour, however she didn’t explain which wines were available for happy hour. I chose a Riesling and I feel she should have told me it wasn’t on the happy hour menu, especially since I inquired about the happy hour specials. That’s minor, and I will return for another visit. Truly enjoyed my first time here.
Thank You you for your feed back! I am glad you enjoyed yourself!
I really enjoyed The Hall. Walking distance to Water Works , the river walk, and Armiture Works. Food was tasty and large portions for a pretty inexpensive price! The atmosphere was modern and historic all in one! There was food for every taste available and you could sit, be served, and pay one bill rather then paying at multiple stations like AW. We had a good server and the carafe of Mimosas were descent prices, we got about 6-7 glasses a carafe! Defiantly a place I would return and we are picky! We also brought our children.. family atmosphere
Wow! Thank you so much for this amazing review! We look forward to serving you again soon.
Had a mix of entrees that we shared. It was very noisy but expected so yelling was no big deal.
The high top seating can get uncomfortable.
Overall a great experience.
The food options and menu were impressive. Great cocktails. Nice ambiance. We’ll definitely go again.
Thank you for this awesome review!
Fantastic as usual! Love this place! Great food, service and ambiance!
Thank you, TampaDiner
Loving the new restaurant options at the hall on Franklin. Each person in our party can find exactly what they’re looking for, we love being able to order from multiple restaurants while being seated at a table. This is a great restaurant for weeknight dining or a weekend outing! It is within walking distance of other great Tampa Activities. The Riverwalk and Waterworks Park are closeby to round out an evening out!!
Thanks for the great review BjWaj
Father daughter meal. She enjoyed it, so that’s that!
Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed yourselves.
