We had breakfast outside on the patio. It was beautiful! We had a reservation and upon walking in we were greeted by name and shown to our table which already had coffee and water set up for us which was a nice touch. Our waitress Elaine was excellent, she was very friendly and always was checking in on us and making sure we had what we needed. Will definitely be back!

When a person pays top dollar( fifty dollars a plate) for dinner, you expect the food to be hot and cooked properly. Not the case! My prime rib was cold and the shrimp was under cooked. I was disappointed in our, Valentine's Day dinner. When we left the restaurant we noticed there was a buffett in the lobby and the price was $26 dollars a plate, half the price with the same food. I could tell that at least that food was hot. We could of had a better dinner in the lobby.

We couldn't have been happier with our choice. Drove up from Sarasota to attend a concert at the very near-by Amalie arena. Sat outside, food was way better than we expected from a hotel restaurant. The wait staff was excellent. There was also the surprise birthday offering from the restaurant...3 delicious desserts and a bottle of Prosecco for the five of us, all complimentary! Will go again before another event at the Amalie.

Made a reservation. Was told that staff screwed up and our table was given to a self-seating table without an apology. Offered a table by the window and were taken to a table not near the window. Menu was not the same as advertised on website.

Was sad that our first two choices for a bottle of wine was not available. Food was good but not exceptional.

Waitress was nice, seemed a little overwhelmed. Menu online didn't match menu in restaurant. I ordered the ribeye with a side extra of shrimp. After waiting about an hour the waitress came to us saying our food was taking longer because of the change of menu and offered us free desert or drinks. Restaurent wasnt busy at all. When the food finally came out the steak was burned on the outside and red on inside. 3 potatoes under the steak and the shrimp was rubbery like it was overcooked. Probably under heat lamps for so long. Asked for a manager and couldn't wait any longer because we had to be somewhere else. Overall bad experience.

Great food for a hotel restaurant. My grilled grouper was outstanding and my wife’s salad with shrimp was delicious. The breakfast buffets here have also been very good.

I took my wife here for a birthday brunch prior to the NHL All Star Game. The brunch buffet was fresh and well-stocked with interesting options. The scrambled eggs were to-die-for. Very pleasant staff and a complimentary piece of cake for the birthday girl!

Nice spot for outdoor dining, just next to the river walk. During my visit the weather was a bit chilly and only one of three propane gas heaters worked. Menu was limited and the food quality was average. Service was a little slow and sperratic. There are better choices in the general vicinity of the Tampa Convention Center.

We asked to be seated out in the patio so we can look out the waterfront. However, the hostess failed to notify the wait staff that she sat us outside because only when I went inside to let them know that we needed to be served did they realise they had patrons outside waiting to be served! Food was decent and corresponding prices were a bit stiff but over-all the outside seating was quite lovely.

Was not told at time of reservation or when restaurant called me to confirm a few days prior that only a special menu would be served and cost of $70 per person.
Reserved asking for waterfront seating, when I was called to reconfirm they asked me if I still wanted waterfront dining which I advised yes. But... when we arrived were told no room on patio. Group walked in after us was seated, expressed interest of being outside and they were moved.
After finishing our meal, which was served buffet style with many of the items cold, we walked outside and only 1/2 of the tables were occupied. Very disappointed, I am a long time Marriott member and cannot recommend this restaurant.

This dining experience was for the Christmas dinner . The fish was dry and selection was not the greatest. The service was terrible and the staff did not seem to care. Would not come back or recommend.
