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.
