Very modern in a "French" way.

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.

After a "less than friendly" reception by the two hostesses, we sat down inside (cuz they don't have their "patio license" to serve alcohol outside), and proceeded to sit for over 5 minutes while 10 employees stood around doing absolutely nothing. The place was empty - 3 other tables were eating but that's it. We decided to leave and I... More

We walked over from our room at Epicurean hoping for a cool little brunch place. The menu seemed interesting with crepes, omelets, breakfast sandwiches and coffee/tea etc We requested and were seated outside. We were there for several minutes before a young man asked to take our drink order. I ordered cappuccino my husband asked for tea, with milk. The... More

We were Christmas shopping in Hyde Park when we decided to try out Piquant. The front of the restaurant was full so a table was set up in the bar area for our group of five. Our server treated us like we were special guests. The menu selection was unique and our lunches were all excellent. The decor was beautiful.... More

The atmosphere was great as was the location. I found the bar area was a a little small. food was a little uneven. Tuna appetizer (La Monique) was delicious and plentiful. The muscles (Moules à la Marinière) were not particularly good and the broth was a little bitter. Three cheeses were pretty bland and nothing special. drinks were excellent.

For the second time we decided to try Piquant -- A French Bistro (we look for Bistros everywhere we go - we are French). We were as disappointed of our experience with Piquant as we were previously - Same complaints...We had reserved our table for brunch. Once again, Piquant was out of certain items we wanted (orange juice this time).... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are aware of your experience since when we brought out the food you had walked out of the table. Your server did come to the kitchen and we gladly pushed the order through. Our omelets are made to order and can take up to 10 minutes to make since... More
