I ordered the sandwich + root chips on the daily special menu. I now prefer duck bacon on my sandwiches ! Dad's egg and banana French toast were cold. They comped his meal. Mom liked her omelet. We sat outside and enjoyed the people watching.

My wife and I ate here this evening, splitting an appetizer, a loaded flatbread, and a main course. In general, food was above average and wait service was slightly below average, as they appeared to be understaffed. The flatbread was a chorizo and goat cheese. It was greatly overcooked -- over half of the chorizo was mostly or completely blackened.... More

As Tampa foodies, we were anxious to try Piquant after reading great reviews. We came here for brunch. When we walked in and had a party of 5, they advised there were only tables for 4 available, I saw two outside tables that could be moved together and that would work for us. They said, "No we can't do that,"... More

Our hotel provided bikes for us to use and we decided to take them out on a recent trip to Tampa to go on the search for coffee. We had passed by Piquant multiple times during the previous days and it was always busy outside. Once inside, my interested was peaked even more. It is absolutely adorable inside and their... More

My wife and I stumbled across Piquant by luck. We went to open table on a Friday night to see who had openings in South Tampa and Piquant did. It was a bit slow for a Friday night so we were a little skeptical at first. That was quickly dismissed after we first took a look at their pastry case... More

I should preface the review by saying that when we visit a restaurant, we hope for a for a food experience. We booked the Chef's Testing Menu in advance as we saw it as an opportunity to sample the breadth of chef's cuisine.

I recently dined here for breakfast and would love to try this place for lunch or dinner. The pastry selection was amazing with many beautiful options. I opted for the ham and gouda on baguett for breakfast and was pleased, although it was a little greasy it was very rustic and filling. The hashbrowns were nothing special, lacking some salt....

First things first, Tampa, the city, does not actually have a French restaurant. This is the closest place I have found, and it is excellent. On Thursday nights they have $9 glasses of Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label, which is enough of a draw for me. I have also tried their mussels and fries, fantastic! The flatbreads and salads are delicious... More
