We had our office Christmas dinner there. The ambiance was a bit plain. I expected a little richer look to the dining area based on the prices. The wait staff was excellent. They did a good job of interacting and anticipating our needs. There apparently was an issue in the kitchen that night. Our initial drinks, appetizers, soups and salads came out as expected. but then it was a good 30-45 minute wait before the entrees came out. My ribeye was overcooked and another person's filet was undercooked. The seafood plates seemed to be OK. Our waiter noticed right away that there were problems with our steaks and initiated the conversation on how the steaks were cooked and quickly took them back and got us new ones. He comped us one of the steaks, a bottle of wine and some desserts, which was all very nice. Even after the comped items, we spent almost 500.00 on the meal. They did their best to make things right, but it was not what were expecting for the amount of money we spent there.

I am have been in all the high end national steakhouses as a good steak is my favorite. I had as good a NY Strip steak as in any of the others. it was a Friday night and the place was not that but enough to be vibrant. There were 6 of us and it was a steep tab with some expensive wine but the waiter seem uninterested and was actually pretty grumpy. It could have been a perfect night with a better waiter.

Service was very good as usual. The problem with this venue is the ambience and atmosphere. It was hot, stuffy, with no music and absolutely no people there as usual so I always wonder how they stay in business. The major negative about this places that the wine prices are absolutely unreasonable. For a chain it is second only to Ruth’s Chris for how outrageous the prices of wine are which is where they make their money. Came here for birthday dinner which was great but won’t be back until my next birthday.

So many better options for steakhouses in Tampa. We were very disappointed, having been to the Shula's at Disney and having the best steaks ever. Only one of six filets were correctly prepared, despite having to wait 40 minutes. The waiter seemed to discourage the guest from returning his well done filet that was supposed to be medium rare. We were one of only four filled tables in the restaurant. I'd be surprised if this location is still open in six months. I'll never return.

Another stellar evening at Shula's. It doesn't get much better combining excellent food, attentive service and an overall enjoyable experience was had by all. Tried some old favorites and made some new favorites. This is one of the best places to get steak in the Tampa Bay area. It is especially beautiful during the holiday season.

Food wasn't as good as in past visits. Side dishes on the cold side if not a little under cooked. Service was not as prompt as usual. This was a Thanksgiving Day visit so maybe next time we don't go on a holiday.

Our steaks were outstanding. Properly aged and cooked perfect. Sides were Ok but Ruth's Chris
sides have better flavor and Ruth's is also ale cart but the overall tab is 25% less expensive.

This hidden gem is a solid meat and potatoes place that is quiet, courteous and elegant. Our server Ali was especially thoughtful and I’m glad we had the pleasure of his service.
My only complaint is that it is incredibly unoriginal and will charge $10 for a generic ceasar salad and $10 for steamed asparagus. I get the shareable concept but that’s absurd. For $200 a meal for two I’d expect to be at a chefs table trying gelled and foamed experiments, not classic meat and veggies. Also, I’ve paid less for a better view. I would have expected this place to be atop the building encased by windows and city views.
The place was established in 1990s and in my opinion, stuck there. There is something to be said for tried and true, however, and this place does not disappoint if you wanna over splurge on simple good food.

AS always the filets were outstanding. The service was adequate though not as exceptional as usual because a group of 20 entered about the same time as we. Shula's is not inexpensive but the price is not unreasonable for the total experience.

We feel it was our server that caused us to not have the great experience that we anticipated. We are senior citizens and on a limited income. Financially we really couldn't afford it but we thought we would splurge for our 45th Wedding Anniversary.

I asked for dirty rocks on the side of my martini. He didn't understand what I asked for so I explained what that was. When he brought a glass for the dirty rocks it had a big long brown hair curled up in it. That was so disgusting. I called it to his attention and he took it away. glibly saying he was sorry. I am glad I had my glasses on!!

Then we ordered a filet mignon - medium and a Rib eye -medium rare. Neither were cooked correctly. The filet was rare and the Rib eye was over cooked to medium. We didn't send them back because we are not ones to complain and it took rather long to get our order and we didn't want to wait.

the meal cost us $169.00 and my husband left a $30.00 tip. I wouldn't have.

Eat there 4-5 times per year. NO MORE! Service was horrible...better service at Burger King. Food was excellent. When I complained about the service, I got a shoulder shrug and a worthless "sorry". I even complained to management by email and got no response. It was obvious management could care less if I ever come back. I won't!

We have been coming to Shula’s for about 8 years, and have never been disappointed. We go there for a fantastic steak, sides, dessert, and good bottle of wine, and for the consistently great service. It’s not inexpensive, but we accept the cost for the overall experience we know we’re going to get. For the past several years they’ve had the same serving and host team, so it seems the team is there as professionals, and not college students that wil be gone in a short while. The restaurant is not what I’d typically consider a hip destination—it’s just great food, great service, in a mature atmosphere.

We had a less than satisfactory experience at Shula's. Partly because of what happened to us, and partly the food and the noise level in the restaurant. We had reservations for 4 at 6:30 pm on 9/30/17. We arrived on time, but the entrance was jammed up with cars, hotel vans, etc. We got parked about about 6:40 pm. We were shown to our table (we had requested a booth a week previous, but none available.) and seated. About 15 minutes later, the restaurant manager came to the table and asked me to step out with him. I was turned over to a hotel employee that took me out to our brand new car that was valet parked, but not taken to the garage, that had been hit by a hit and run vehicle coming out of the hotel. We had to call the police, etc., and it sure put a damper on our dinner with friends. To Shula's credit, they did comp our meals, but not the drinks. We did tip on the cost of both the meals and the drinks as to not short our servers. However, the place was so loud, we could not carry on a conversation with out yelling. We requested a new table that was a little better, but no table cloth, etc. Our meals, when we finally got them, were just OK. The sides were lukewarm or cold. About the best thing we all had was the French onion soup! The excuse we got from the manager is that the Bucs were playing in town, and they were overwhelmed with customers. I guess look at the Bucs schedule and prepare for bigger crowds would be a good idea. If you want a steak house I would recommend Charley's, Bern's or Bascom's.

We have been customers since the 1980's at the original Miami Lakes location. I'm also a member of the "48 Ounce Club."
For many years we have celebrated birthdays , anniversaries and other occasions at Shula's.
Five years ago we moved to Tampa where we have continued the tradition.
When we do celebrate a special occasion, and mark our reservation with it, the waiter and manager always have recognized it. On this, our 46th anniversary, it was ignored. Except for the hostess.
Now we will think twice about returning.

A lesson can be learned from Capital Grille, where you're greeted by the matre d' mentioning the occasion, the waiter and manager greet you, the table is set with special glitter, a long-stemmed rose and dessert makes he evening special.

We were celebrating a 'milestone' birthday for our son and could not have asked for a better experience! Each steak was delicious and cooked to perfection, salads, sides and desserts were equally outstanding - especially the Brussels sprouts! Ambiance was elegant and quiet, our servers provided impeccable service. If you want to make a great impression or simply treat yourself, this is the place to go!

I have gone to Shulas on my birthday for the last several years . This year was im sad to say a disappointment . The 14 oz ribeye ordered by my date was tough as shoe leather , the Cesar salad was bland and quite dry . I can say my Mixed grill was superb . The onion soup was tasty and a shareable size . Dirty Martini and my sparkling wine were lovely. The Chocolate souffle was outstanding though id have recommend a raspberry sauce and a single scoop of ice cream for both sharing the treat which is for two according to menu.
