This is a really nice place few steps from Tampa's downtown. Easy parking. Very interesting the cantine's level for selection and quality of wine, but recharge are really very high, more than normally accepted. Very well designed, very warm atmosphere also thanks to the wood's equipments and lighting. The ambitious and elegance of this place don't match my expectation referring... More

Amazing amazing food. Shared the ceviche, squash, grilled calamari and lamb. Chris is best waiter in town. The whole place was a fabulous experience. They have a great wine list. Our waiter explained every dish in detail and we took all his suggestions. I was never without a fork, an empty glass or an interesting conversation with everyone serving there.... More

After trying Mise en Place, I can see why it has received so many positive reviews and accolades--it's an excellent restaurant! You'll be soothed by the dark, elegant, and cozy decor and atmosphere as you're walking to your table. Service, while slow at times, was friendly and accommodating. But it's the food that is the real star and the reason... More

When you live in Tampa you are made to believe that Mise En Place is the PLACE. I am sure long ago it was, but no longer does it live up to its reputation. The decor lovely, warm and clean. Our waitstaff that evening, charming and spot on. Our food....crap. I order the set tasting menu paired with wine. This... More

Staff quite adequate for casual dining. The kitchen may be overtaxed during service due to Menu design. I agree with another reviewer about coherence and portion sizes.

This is a spectacular place to take friends, family or colleagues. I do not think it's possible to be disappointed here. The service was good and the food was absolutely wonderful. The only snafu is a hard to find location with difficult parking.

On a visit with friends this place was picked by our hosts who know the Tampa "scene" quite well. The atmosphere is upscale, elegant, but casual. It, too, is in a recently renovated part of downtown Tampa and provides a wonderful dining experience. I had the Rack of Lamb preceded by a well-prebted appetizer of lobster with small add-ons that... More

The food is awesome, the wine selection is great and the service is awesome. And the desert topped it off perfectly. It's not a large place so make sure and get reservations.The location is a little tricky to find.

Great food and wine list. We were in a large party (16) and the service was a little poor. Sadly, just not enough staff to cope, on a busy night. However, this is definitely worth visiting. Perhaps with less people next time!
