Food and drinks were awesome. Our server Ryan made me and my wife feel right at home. Ryan is the best server I have had in years and I worked in restaurant for 15 years. The bar is awesome and they make some awesome drinks and desserts.

Great food, great service, but the experience is greatly diminished by people not respecting the dress code. It turns a great restaurant, into a dining at a "Sizzler" experience. The website says business casual, but people showed up and bathing suits and flip flops. consider this restaurant if your dining as a casual group, but I would think twice for a special occasion or business meal.

From the time we entered, the Hosts (greeters) were very friendly (sorry I couldn't catch their name) the bartender Francisco and our server Cole made our dining experience something to remember. Friendly and attentive to our needs. It was our 21st Anniversary and everything was perfect, the food, the salad bar, everything, it was a perfect evening for me and my wife. Thank you guys.

I realized after I got home that waiter charged me for whole dinner while I had only the salad bar and had notified her as well. When I called GM Diego to make him aware. He was rude and told me to call back at another time outside of business time and would not even take my info down to call me back. I felt he was pushing me away and he has no time for customer once they have paid and left the premises. How rude!! Also the waiter asked us if anyone had any preferences with our meat to other two ppl at the table after they were done eating their whole meals. Is this supposed asked at the initial greeting with drinks? Not when it’s dessert time. Also it’s the food everytime u visit in the salad bar, needs some changes/variations

Before I made my reservations for 10 people for my birthday, I called on 2 different occasions to ask the price for sunday brunch for adults and a 3 & 5 year old. On both times it was $5.00 for the children and $29.95 for the adults. On Saturday I called to see if I could change my time from 11:45 to 12:15, which was no problem. At that time I was told the price was changed to $46.95 a person. Had I known this, I wouldn't have invited so many people on my check. My mother's rotary club goes once a month for sunday brunch and there was always a wait. On this sunday, the dining room was less than half full. While the food and service were wonderful, we will not be returning. The price I was given at the time I made the reservations should have been honered.

The food was over the top good as is the concept of how the food meats were served. The salad bar was like no other I've ever had due to the variety and quality involved. Our server was nice, informative, and provided overall good service with the exception of forgetting a couple items. The only complaints I have would be the liquor prices ($42 a pitcher for sangria; 12 a mini beer shot of Licor 43 w/heavy cream on top) as they were quite high. The other complaint was our server (female w/fairly long black hair & glasses) handing me the bill after running my credit card through saying to me "if you can give the tip in cash, it's better for us. If not, that's ok too". Suffice it to say the tip was left on the credit card as I didn't have enough cash to leave it on a $452 bill. Also, the tip dropped about 3% due to her comment and in hindsight, I should have reduced it further. I've never had that said to me before nor had anyone at the table. Yes, maybe servers would always prefer cash gratuities but that's something you just don't say in my nor anyone else's opinion at the table and 3 of them are servers themselves. I was going to advise the manager of this but my wife stopped me. Again, aside from these 2 issues, 1 really, the evening was superb.

I enjoyed it so much with my coworkers and team that i bought my boyfriend who's birthday was the following week and he couldn't stop raving about the service and food. All he kept telling everyone from the meat carvers, to the servers and even the Manager that everything was OUTSTANDING. Both our servers names were Luis and the third believe her name was Megan were very attentive and made our night that much more special. We cant wait to bring our family when they come to visit us in Tampa.

Unless you overeat, this is too expensive. I had purchased gift cards at Sam's so I could try this restaurant and then there was an offer that if you made a reservation in advance you would get $8.00 off. After I gave the waitress my gift cards she came back and said I was ineligible for the $8.00 discount since we bought the gift cards at a discount. The face value of the gift cards was $100.00 and it was my understanding that this is just like cash so had I known this in advance I wouldn't have come that evening and may have come for lunch when it would have been less expensive.

We have been to Tampa location several times and the full dinner with all the meats. This visit we decided to do just the dinner salad bar as there is more than enough food. The lobster bisque is my favorite. The food is always good, the noise level would be my only complaint as it is very loud while dining.

I was pleased that although they said we’d have a wait they actually seated us on time. The service was quick but it began to make us feel rushed. Food was all very tasty but a bit heavily salted.
It was fun but I felt it was a bit expensive for what we received and paying extra for non-alcoholic beverages seems a bit much to ask given the price.

Again overall fun dining experience but probably won’t do it again.

The food was amazing. The staff was very informative and friendly. It was crowded when my husband and myself went on a Friday night at 8:15. There wasn't very much room for the staff to walk around the tables you had to kind of squeeze a little bit move your chair a little bit they would step sideways. I think the table setup could have been a little better to where there's a little more space in between for walking. There were a lot of people so there was a lot of talking and it was very loud because of that, not a Wild Bunch just normal conversations just everybody trying to be louder than the next person ,not in a rude way, so their table party could hear them.

Philippe was awesome! Amazing service. Told our server that on second thought, medium rare was actually too rare, and he had new rounds of medium meats sent out! He also decanted our bottle of wine which made all the difference. Loved it so much, we went back a second night. Lamb chops were super prime, and my boyfriend loved the bacon wrapped filet mignon. Excellent salad bar, too
