Food is very salty and just ok.
came to celebrate my daughter’s birthday! her first time, i’ve been several times before. food and service was outstanding.
Treated my niece and my sister to lunch for my niece's birthday. Our meals were excellent as was the service. For my niece's birthday, they brought her dessert with a candle in it and presented her with a card signed by each of the staff and a box of four truffles...so much classier than the embarrassing sing along!
This is probably my favorite restaurant in Tampa. It is a little pricey and it can be a little noisy but the good is so good it's worth it.
Our server Luis was amazing. Very tentative, fun and went above and beyond. He notice mid way through our dining experience our table had a wobble and came over right away to fix it.
Excellent good! Cool environment
Great seat upstairs. We could hear the each other well. Great service.
Slow service. Food was overpriced for what you received. The food was just mediocre.
Too noisy to enjoy dining inside. Luckily got an outside table on a nice evening. Waiter very good but the kitchen was extremely slow due to a large party. Fish was good. Possibly steaks are more outstanding.
We were going to the Straz Center for a show. We had a 5:30 reservation so we thought 1.5 hrs would be plenty of time to slowly eat and relax. After being seated and no one approaching our table for 10 minutes, I stopped a waiter and discovered that no one had been assigned our table. Waitress finally came over & we ordered immediately. Our bottle of Champagne came 10 minutes later. After pouring our initial glass, the waitress never returned to finish our bottle. We took care of ourselves.. 50 minutes after ordering, I flagged down another waiter asking for our dinner. 5 minutes passed & a completely different waitress dropped off our lukewarm plates... Disappointment is my overall feel of the evening & the experience...
Great place. Accommodates Pets. As always crowded so make reservations.
Pre-hockey game lunch with friends. Service was great, our waiter was very knowledgable and prompt. Food was good but just can't go 5 stars. The layout of the restaurant is light and airy with plenty of outside seating for eating or cocktails.
Our server was friendly but several of the other staff we interacted with were not. Food was good but slow.
Fantastic! We even requested an outside table or next the window and got it with no problem. I highly recommend reserving a table before you arrive, the wait was almost an hour.
Excellent food. Great atmosphere. Dined outside where pets are welcomed. Our waitress took the time to explain the name and history. Locally sourced ingredients, unique dish options, brew own beers and make their own mixers.
This was our first time, our waitress Audra was amazing and very attentive. She rrally paid attention to our conversation and was sure treat us special to our occasion! Would def go back and ask foe Audra!
Great food! They did a little extra for us on our Anniversary
Absolutely DELICIOUS food! We ordered the alligator hush puppies, lobster mac n’ cheese, and calamari for appetizers and they were very yummy! I had the Gouda Grouper which was fantastic and I also had a few bites of the seafood risotto and it was to die for! The drinks are strong, the music a bit loud and the atmosphere is great!
The service was spectacular (minus the 3 hostess girls at the front)!!!
I would definitely go back!
Excellent staff, service and food as usual! Always make it a point to eat there when in Tampa. Highly recommend!
Peter our server was amazing and on point in every aspect. He made our dining experience exceptional!
Ulele is one of the best restaurants in the Tampa area and the location is great too. The food is wonderful and the service is too. After a good meal, you can walk the River Walk and enjoy the sights.
We took out of town friends that were visiting on Saturday, March 17. The food was excellent and in addition for St. Pattys Day the river was green - so all around fun time.
The raw and chargrilled oysters at Ulele are the best...this was a lunch on St Patrick’s Day and a perfect location to see the river dyed green! I don’t recommend the Yellowfin Burger ...dry and tasteless but everything else our party of 5 ordered was very good...Lobster Roll and Grouper Sandwich fantastic...service is good but it is a little too noisy for me.
We love Ulele! Beautiful location and good food. We ate on the back patio with the kids. The kids could go run around the field while we waited for our food.
Service - awesome
Speed of food - excellent
Location - beautiful
Adult food was very good! Kids food was also good. Baked chicken was yum to my daughter. The chicken fingers were a bit overly crunchy for small kids.
Bloody Mary was delicious!
We will definitely make reservations to go again.
Our server Peter was awesome! Food and service was on top of it and would definitely go back!
The waitress was a little off her game, not asking if we wanted to order. The hostess said her butt was sunburned.
One of the best restaurants in Tampa. THE best value in Tampa. Offers great wine, especially from Napa, at the best price I've ever seen.
Great atmosphere! Great food! The best of times!!
A must! Great dining along the Riverwalk.
Love the outdoor seating area!
Visiting from RI - xcellent food & service. Outdoor dining, drinks available and scenery nice
We celebrated a birthday with lunch at Ulele because of a review in The Guardian. It was our first time at the restaurant and is now our favorite restaurant anywhere. The food was superb; shrimp and grits, and seafood risotto. Our waiter Logan was excellent. The beer was great and we are beer geeks. But the highlight was the homemade coffee ice cream. Can't wait for our next trip to Tampa.
Sister and husband visiting from out of state. His 50th Bday. Our waiter (James) was fun, knowledgable and thoughtful. He presented a box of truffles to my brother-in-law for Bday. Great food and experience. Will be back.
Loved our meal and our waiter!
Took a friend from out of town. Was wonderful. Great food, great service!!
The atmosphere is phenomenal! Love the look. Enjoyed the special - Cheeseburger with fries for lunch - divine! The meat was cooked properly, nice, juicy consistency! Took the Grouper and grilled oysters to go! Even hours later for dinner, while working :), the food tasted excellent! The staff were very friendly, constantly checking on me, not to mention the history of the building.
Everything was going well until the entrees arrived. We sent both of our entrees back twice (cold/wrong temperature). The first time they just put them both in the pizza oven to re-heat. The second time they brought “freshly cooked” replacements back. But, they weren’t much better than the first time. The third time wasn’t the charm.
At least they didn’t charge us for he entrees. Too bad. We had heard good things and had been wanting to try it out. But, when you’re charging these prices, no atmosphere can overcome poorly cooked food, especially at these prices. The quality of the meat & fish were not what you’d expect for these prices, either.
We took family from out of state to lunch on a Thursday afternoon. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Our meals were as ordered and the Native Chili was loved by all. Our waiter was attentive and personable. We ate in a booth indoors and the noise level wasn't great, but we enjoyed our time there. The steak salad a hit.
I recommend for a leisurely lunch or dinner, or drinks and dessert.
Truly a great experience. Our waitress Samantha has a great personality and very well educated on each item on the menu. Food was amazing. Will definitely go back for more.
Really good food and nice atmosphere
Had a wonderful meal!! Service was excellent! Loved sitting upstairs and watching the kitchen do their thing!! Loved it so much, we ate there again at the Tampa airport!!
