The Rez Grill is a beautiful addition to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. The service was very good and Louis was very friendly, attentive and quick. We ordered the tartare appetizer and really enjoyed it. We also ordered the Fried Chicken and Waffles and the Ribs and just shared them. Chicken was very moist and flavorful and the ribs were fall off the bone! We will definitely go back.

I was amazed at the quality of the food considering this is a casino restaurant. My meal absolutely rivaled in both presentation and quality, the meals I've had at Ruth Chris, Morton's and Hy's. The service was impeccable, prompt but not hovering. Outstanding attention from our servers and bar staff.
Will definitely go come back and introduce my friends to this wonderful experience. Thank you to all at the REZ for a fabulous meal and evening.

Very pretty design and casual ambiance. The Veal Chop was fabulous. The staff was friendly and the menu choices were better than I expected. Glad it was not a bunch of fried food and chicken wings place.

We eat here frequently. The burger (which is not on the menu) is the best thing to get besides the grouper bites. Too often, the food isn't hot (including the fries with the burger) but this last time, everything was hot and well prepared. Friday night we had the Chateaubriand ($85) and it wasn't hot, but the flavor was good. Mostly a hit and miss affair.

We wanted the lobster roll for dinner. The waitress stated they quit serving them at 6:00 pm. It was 7:00 pm at the time so we ordered something else that we had to send back. In the mean time, we saw lobster rolls coming out to other customers.
Glass had lipstick on it. Table was dirty and had to clean a dirty spot.

Waitress suggested a wine that we sent back.
Ordered specialty mixed drink that was good.

We will never return to this restaurant. With all the issues we had (yes there were more). No apology from waitress or mgr

We ate at the Rez in October the week before my sister passed away. We wanted to celebrate her this past Saturday for her birthday. We could only reserve a table for six but had nine family members. GM James was gracious enough to accommodate our needs and made the evening more special with a toast. Kudos to James and The Rez Grill 👍

We had the New Year’s Eve menu and the dessert was horrible. Other dishes outstanding don’t do that liquid pudding hidden under pile of cool whip again. Wish we would’ve ordered regular entrées. Also the appetizer with shellfish that I can’t eat and they would not substitute for veg or something little.

The food was very good but the portions were a little underwhelming for the price. Food is priced close to top tier staples around Tampa like Eddie V's and Bern's but doesn't have near the ambiance. If you don't want to travel to restaurants in Tampa, Council Oak is a much better option in the same hotel.

Very nice place and not to loud. We had a reservation and we got a table near the bar so we can see the TV.
We asked the floor Manager if that was possible to see the Tampa Bay lightning game and he made that happen. Our server great us and let us know the specials, we had the grouper nuggets special for the appetizer, my wife choose the ribs and I asked our server about my choices, the pork chop, or the veal chop.
He recommended the pork chop. Food presentation was supper.
The ribs were well presented, easy of the bone and very tasty, love them.
My pork chop presentation was good, but the sauce had too much salt. I told the Manager so he can let the chef know. We will try the restaurant again. thank you

Booked this restaurant for my sisters birthday 5 days in advance. The front desk was not friendly and not one mention of my sisters birthday until we were on our way out. I checked into the restaurant 45 minutes ahead of time just to let them know that we were there. When we arrived for our 6:15 reservation time, we were told to wait while they set up our table. We waited another 10 minutes and then they tried to seat us at a "community table" with at least 12 high bar stools. My elderly mom was with my sister and I and would mot be able to sit at a "high top". We asked the hostess if we could have another table and she looked inconvenienced and had to ask the manager if we could sit somewhere else, which he agreed.

My disappointment of how this was all handled was embarrassing! Throughout our meal, not one other party being seated at the restaurant was shown to the "community table". We had reservations and there were guests behind us that did not have reservations and were given a time to come back or seated - BUT not at the community table.

The only saving grace at Rez that night was the wait staff and the food! Once we were seated, it was 5 star dining. Food was amazing and our server was outstanding! He never missed a beat and made it worthwhile.

It's sad that the front desk, which really is your "first impression" is not friendly and almost look as if doing their job is an inconvenience.
