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.

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.

Great experience!
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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
