Six Tables is a unique and intimate dining experience provided by one talented chef serving a total of six tables. Personal customer service and phenomenal food is the hallmark of Six Tables, where the chef explains each menu option to you and prepares your multi-course meal fresh on the spot. Though the menu is revolving, sample menu items have included black pepper bread with whipped butter and warm honey and the pickled carrot slaw for starters. Next comes the soup and salad courses, which have included a luscious shrimp bisque, a cool and creamy cucumber soup and a torn radicchio and heirloom tomato salad. Diners have enjoyed such entrée items as grilled beef strip with parsnip frites, pasilla-crusted lamb and butter poached black cod.
Dessert is equally decadent, with options like grilled banana crème brulee and chocolate crepes putting the finishing touch on a beautiful experience.
What a great experience! Food was amazing!! Chef was awesome. Felt like an under dining scence, very personal and intimate. A must try for everyone a once in a lifetime experience. Worth every dollar.
I have never been in this restaurant before. I am a connoisseur of fine restaurant and I wanted to try this one which has an interesting concept: small restaurant with only 6 tables and a creative chef. The marketing is also very attractive: THE PINNACLE OF FINE DINING IN TAMPA SINCE 2000.
I love the idea of a unique menu changing everyday, which proves that the chef is creative.
When you arrive at 7:30pm for a dinner starting for the 6 tables at 8:00pm you are welcomed at your table with a glass of bubbly.
Then the waitress details the menu and its variations. so far so good.
The food was OK but not extraordinary. A soufflé as the first course, second course: a salad (spring mix + spinach + vinaigrette) nothing fancy, third course: a beef filet or a fish or a lamb blanquette (My wife insisted to have her filet rare, with warm red inside. It was served medium), Fourth course: a thin slice of a Manchego type cheese serve on the same type of salad as the second course, fifth course: dessert (I cannot remember what it was, which just shows that it was not remarkable).
For the wine they offer bottles at $50.00 per bottle or a flight of 4 glasses for $30.00 (small glasses, and low quality).
Conclusion: I will not recommend this restaurant to any of my friends in Tampa, on the contrary.
For what was served on the plate, we should have paid no more than $50.00.
Good news they accept BYOB if you want to bring your decent wine, and avoid their upscale table wine, but cork fee is $25.00.
Chef Richard is awesome. The food is wonderful. I have been twice and both I was completely full at the end. Super romantic, quite and calming atmosphere.
Great food! Very intimate. Plaza looks dead. No windows. Interesting cuisine.
As expected, the menu at Six tables was great with the the Scallop Bisque and Veal being exceptional. Richard was a one man band Sunday covering every position from Host and Server to head Chef and as usual, he was generous with his knowledge and humor.
Six Tables is the best restaurant in Tampa for those serious about their food. This is, what we Australians would call, a "real restaurant". You go here for a night out, not as a quick meal before going elsewhere. It is small, has only 6 tables as the name suggests. I have gone there for romantic dinners with my husband; dinner with 10 friends; a couples' night out and with just a friend. It has never let me down!
VIP experience! We enjoyed incredible food for every course of dinner, personalized conversation with the chef, and quaint cozy ambiance. Highly recommend for special occasions!
Great multi-course dinner. Limited choices because of the format, but sufficient variety, including a fish option for non-meat eaters. Wide variety of flavors you don't often see - the plum soup was tangy, unusual and outstanding. Veal was tender and delightful. Panna cotta dessert to die for. loved the mis-matched china. Décor disappointing only because it should not take much effort to spruce it up and make diners feel more welcome.
We had a great experience at Six Tables. The food was great and so was the service. I particularly liked the carrot anise soup; it had a nice spicy kick to it. The lavender herb bread smelled and tasted delicious. I read Yelp reviews that people left hungry, and I simply can't see how that would be possible unless you eat like a horse.
We attended on a quiet Saturday night. Six tables actually only has six tables, so the experience is awesome and very intimate. There are no printed menus, you are provided five courses- an appetizer, salad, choice of entree, cheese course, and choice of dessert. The appetizer our night was a potato souffle, which was wonderful and light. The salad was mixed greens with collards, which provided a nice bite. SO had the duck tart and I had the cornish hen. The tart was amazing and very rich, the skin on the cornish hen was so crispy it tasted like fried chicken! Our cheese course was a generous helping of un-aged gouda with accompaniments, and for dessert I had a wonderful panna cotta and my SO had a chocolate cake. We added the wine pairing, which at $30 is a steal. I highly recommend this to any foodies looking for an amazing and unique date night.
Really enjoyed our dinner experience at 6 tables. Great unique, fresh, local food. Will definitely go back for date night/ special occasion.
The chef was very passionate about his food. I had the pork, which was melt in your mouth delicious, and my husband had the game hen, which was so crispy on the outside yet juicy on the inside! Definitely recommend for a special occasion.
Chef Richard presented us an absolutely wonderful meal and paired wines with each course individually suited to each of our palates and the specific dishes. Pricey, but worth it for the unique menu and superb personalized service. All the dishes were amazing but the deserts were the biggest surprise - and spectacular.
Always have enjoyed Six Tables, The Service and food quality was outstanding. There was a party of 8 that made the noise level to high. Sitting at a table for two, farthest way, we could hardly hear each other. Some how the noise level needs to be controlled.
All in all the food was well done, the chef was clearly classically trained, but may have been slipping on doing new dishes. The food was paired nicely to our wine flight, it was a very enjoyable evening.
Only sad part is, that as the name implies there are only 6 Tables, with that you are very much at the mercy of the other guests when it comes to volume of a conversation. Needless to say, when the party walked into the room with shorts and a pull over hoodie on, I instantly knew this would not be a nice and quiet meal. All I can say, is if the dress code says coat recommended, don't show up in shorts. Gone are the days of finer dinning.
