My friends and I were there pre show at The Straz. You couldn’t have found a better pick. Food was excellent, our waiter, Aaron was amazing and the Jazz music took it over the top. Would absolutely recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
We arrived , and after three staff at the front desk finished their conversation, we were seated. Our server must have been new, was very personable but slow and inattentive for the most part. Took our 2 glasses of wine 15 mins to arrive. We decided to split a dinner as our server suggested because it was a generous portion. We also decided to split the side Caesar. Took 20 more minutes to get our salad and even had to ask for it again, and then ask for extra plates to divide it ourselves. Our dinner arrived on a cutting board, one knife and no plates. Had to ask for plates and an extra knife. Yikes and this was an anniversary and Valentine dinner. I will say the best part of the restaurant was the salted caramel cheesecake for dessert.
Do not go here for breakfast!! I brought a group of 12 people in our mid 20’s and was horrified to enter a weird dark side room that looked like a bingo room for 85 year olds with black seat covers and a wooden dance floor. This is a crappy continental breakfast in a hotel that was completely empty except for a couple tables of elderly people. The room in the pictures is not the breakfast room!! It was advertised as a “post gasparilla recovery brunch with bottomless mimosas” and there were none. Open table should take this option off for breakfast immediately.
No Bloody Mary bar as advertised, no one was there to sit us. “Buffet” was a few items of food that looked like they had been sitting out for hours. We left very disappointing
We will be back fit dinner next time with our friends.
Food was average. Ok for price but after ordering we had to wait over 1 hour for our food to be brought to our table
great, fast service. Good food and drinks. Very close to Straz. Perfect for a before show dinner.
The convenience next to the Straz for a meal before a show can't be beat. The food was excellent. It is fairly traditional fare for a hotel restaurant/bar, but is well done. The staff is very friendly and our waiter had a terrific sense of humor. Their service I would not classify as slow but inconsistent. Going in I had read some of the negative reviews regarding service time and planned accordingly with my reservation to be well in advance of our show time. I am glad I did as the meal would have been "rushed" if I booked any less time. Two tables next to ours were both seated after us by at least 10 minutes but their orders came out before or practically at the same time as ours. It seems that the kitchen "pushes" orders out, lulls, and "pushes" again. If you were at my table service seemed a bit slow but if you were at one of the others, the service was very good. We look forward to going back again but will always plan for a bit more time needed just in case.
My expectations were a bit higher for the prime location of this restaurant. The food was only so so. The ambiance left a lot to be desired. This location has the potential to be a top notch restaurant but I feel like it missed the mark.
Food was good but the service was slow due to a lack of wait staff.
