I was in Tampa for business and I worked the whole day, but in the evening I decided to have a good dinner. My colleague and I are big steak eaters, so we used TripAdvisor to see what was in the the vicinity of our hotel. This stakehouse came to rescue. The food was excellent and the wine also, but...

This is the nearest to elegant dining we have ever had in Florida, not a shorts & t shirt place - proper table clothes, red & white wine glasses & a water glass on the table. Food - glorious but you need to be a meat eater! Its relatively expensive for Florida but is so worth it. They do a... More

This is my very favorite Tampa restaurant! For cocktails, I love the raspberry rosemary cosmo and my husband loves the cucumber Collins. We also tried a new wine the last time we went there called The Prisoner, and it was amazing! The harvest salad with the cranberries and goat cheese is to die for, and so is the French onion... More

The choice of steak is excellent. I am not an expert but the taste and the cooking was really good. The dessert was also super. It is expensive, no doubt, but you know that.

Even though my husband was in shorts and tshirt, ( a little underdressed...!) the service was excellent and we were even treated to a visit from the chef, George, who was delightful and bought the kids out complimentary cookies and ice cream at the end. The porterhouse steak for two was divine and plenty of it, exquisitely cooked with delicious... More

My partner and I had "date" night last evening. Our server was Maria - a pretty, young, short type with a wonderful sense of pride in her work. Folks, if you can, ask to be seated at a table where Maria will attend to your every desire. She really did make for a memorable dining experience. I ordered the enormous... More
