First let me say that we enjoyed the experience and the food. We made reservations but still waited 30 minutes for our table. Service was very good although I ordered leeks and still got potatoes (albeit very tasty). The bacon on the big fat biscuit was undercooked, (zero crisp) and when I cut 1/4 of the biscuit to share with my daughter, the fried chicken wasn’t big enough to even get in that piece.
All in all, tasty and I will definitely return.

2nd time in and I dare say it was even better than anticipated. Brunch was fabulous, everyone enjoyed all their meals. The biscuit debris can’t be missed!

First time dining here. Limited menu but excellent food. Super fresh. I had the steak special and my friend had the deluxe burger. They were both amazing. Staff was super nice. The space is also really cool. Looks like it use to be an old house. Will be back for sure.

The food was excellent. I had the hamburger with peanut butter and whipped marshmellow and highly recommend it.

One of my favorite Seminole Heights restaurants--delicous dinner to share with friends. We were there the night after Valentine's, so the atmosphere was especially quiet. Great service: thanks, Leigh!

Weve gone to the refinery on multiple occasions now either as a nice date or for special occasions with friends. The food is always an experience. Very creative tastes that are accessible even to an unsophisticated guy like me.

My only complaint is having to sit at a table on the roof-top section so close to another table that we couldn’t have a private conversation and neither could our neighbors

This place has a fantastic seasonal menu, extremely creative, very down to earth at home feeling. I go to all the restaurants in tampa, this is one of the very best.

Ahh, I had such high hopes for a true farm-to-table restaurant. I think the sourcing of ingredients is pretty high quality, but the menu is very limited. They seem to be afraid to really go for it and charge what they need to charge. There should be more descriptions of ingredients. Our waitress seemed to think it was okay to have us shouting down the table to her, instead of her walking around. The restaurant is not in the best part of town, but it is fine.
After just having a beet salad to die for at NYC's Gotham Bar and Grill, this one was simply adequate. The chicken wings were tasty, but very large and of unknown origin. The fish of the day was a bit dry. Two diners' coffee was "awful" . The bolognese had a "strange" flavor.

I think the concept is good: just charge what you need to charge for high quality and make it delicious.

As always, a great meal that was not too fancy but that I wouldn't cook at home, Lovely, fresh ingredients and great flavors. Perfect service. My only grumble would be that there always used to be an interesting sausage item on the menu and this was missing.
Particularly good - Merguez & Greens, Smoked Broccoli Lager Beer Cheese Soup and Tartine. Just great.

The food was not great. Our waitress just wanted us to move along and leave. I don’t have any idea why this place has such high ratings.

The food was fine. I would have preferred more of an entree selection. Great atmosphere and the wait staff was friendly.
