Piquant Hyde Park - A Great Experience

Piquant Hyde Park is truly a French experience. From the moment we were greeted at the door with a "bonjour", to our dessert, we felt like we were back in Paris.

I'll start off by saying it would have been a much better experience if the service was better, I'll cover that later! The place has some of the best outdoor seating in Hyde Park, roomy, at the end of the strip with less foot traffic. The interior is a wide open space with plenty of room between tables and booth...

I often start my reviews with a disclaimer, that I am a true food snob, Michelin Star Fanatic, real life foodie that will not accept ordinary meals. This place looks like it's just a fancy bakery, and it has a bakery too, but it is much more than that. It is a foodie's bistro, with amazing truffle grilled cheese choices... More

I don't think this deserves more than 3.5 stars. I'm rounding up because of how nice they were to our puppy, but if not for the kindness of the hostess in bringing out a water bowl for him, I would round down to 3. What are the positives? Well, they have an excellent patio, well shaded, and it is (obviously)... More

Piquant is located in the heart of Hyde Park and offers indoor and outdoor seating and is pet friendly for those who enjoy being outside. My family and I arrived at 2:30 on Sunday and waited about 10 minutes for a table outside. We waited patiently another 10 minutes before our server, Elizabeth, greeted us. In the interim, the hostess,... More

First of all, the location of Piquant is stunning, especially on a sunny day. The food was also amazing and flavorful, but it is too fancy for kids. If you want to sit outside, the wait time is long, but overall I'd give this restaurant four stars.

Dinner at Piquant Saturday January 17th, 2015 for three. Great space, great location, awful execution. The highlight was a very warm and elegant welcome. Downhill from there. Two separate ordered dishes were out. Information requests forgotten. Two ordered salads arrived as risottos instead. Tuna appetizer managed to have no taste. Wine pour looked more like a wine tasting serving than... More

Tried Piquant for lunch before a movie at nearby CineBistro and our family was quite pleased! The coffees were good; the Butternut Squash Salad & Asiago Flatbread were excellent. Friendly & efficient service. Nearby, walkable shops include Restoration, West Elm & Anthropologie if you want to extend your time in this beautiful Tampa neighborhood. Their dinner & dessert menus are... More

Loved this place. Just went in for a tarte and a tea with my fiance to read before a movie at Cinebistro. This was such a lovely place to sit and read for a while. We'd love to go back for a full meal! They have a yummy selection of teas and a delicious array of sweets.
