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.

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

We were in Tampa for the Florida Bar, which is a tense time, and a hungry time. The staff here were very professional and the ambience lovely. It was a wonderful end to a tense day. The steak and sides were all without fault and our waiter, Chris, was top notch. Thanks again!
