Nice to be able to sit on chaise loungers and couches outside, under the palms and the stars. Good selections of liquors. Attentive service. Walk over from Beach Ave. for a quieter, more upscale scene.

The Vinoy Hotel dates way back and its charm has been kept. Excellent food -- we were on a tour so menu choices were limited. Everybody in the group of 3-4 tables liked everything. One wrong note is picky -- we ordered a Sangria from the bar. It was awful -- they put BRANDY in it. NOT a light fruity... More

This is on of my favorite places simply because of the size and layout. There are few architects who grasp the concept of scale to make an impression, but whoever laid out this room nailed it. As far as dining her, I've been here 4 times. The staff is great, especially the bartenders. All in all I've been pleased with... More

This is a nice place for lunch! Not too expensive and good selection of good meals. Beautiful dining room and hotel in general.

I want to start out by saying the traditional brunch the Vinoy used to do was my favorite brunch in town so I was skeptical when I learned this was no longer offered when we went there last Sunday at 11am but willing to give the new menu a try, which did not go so well. The expresso my boyfriend... More

I had a turkey sandwich for lunch that was piled high with tender turkey, lettuce, pickles, tomato, crispy bacon, mayo, mustard and it came with a side of fresh fruit.

Friends in St Pete brought us here for dinner. Very impressive dining room surrounding a friendly bar. Food was served in generous portions and delightfully presented. Salads were huge and delicious. Scallops were scrumptious. Steaks appeared to be well liked around the table. All in all a very nice meal. Dessert was my usual sorbet trio but one of the... More

Each time we visit St. Pete we sit in the rockers or at one of the bars and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and casual food. This beautifully-renovated hotel overlooking the bay and yacht basin is both a hub of activity and a quiet retreat for guests. The staff are terrific. If you go, check out the extraordinary Chihuly display in... More

I was part of a church bus trip to the Vinoy Renaissance hotel which included a guided tour of the highlights of this historical building which was very informative. However, the luncheon meal was a train wreck. We preselected our choices a month ago and were told upon arrival that those items were no longer on the menu and that... More
