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

My husband and I went for our Sunday morning brunch at Piquant. The Barista Jason always remembers what I like, which is an Apple Pie Latte (which is so great) and remembers our names! I started of with a warm croissant and it came with this Rasberry Jam that has been handed down for generations by one of the Chefs.... More

I have nothing bad to say about this place. I had the burger which was unbelievable. Very friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. So glad I stopped here for lunch!

After being at the Tampa airport, I was really happy to stumble upon this restaurant on a Saturday around 3pm. On that day particular day I found out that not many nice places East of the airport are opened for a late lunch, as they are either are closed after the lunch crowd in preparation for dinner or are strictly...

On my list of restaurants to return on my next visit to Tampa. The crepes were fantastic, but the desserts were to die for.

First of all - this place is too expensive!!! Went here for lunch with 3 other friends - we all left hungry - I had the French Cuban with a side salad and when I asked what kind of salad dressing they had, the waitress said three kinds that I'd never heard of. I asked if they had Ranch and... More

Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to review our restaurant. We are sorry to hear you found us to be expensive. While we understand, we designed our concept with a French-inspired menu, reflecting the lifestyle of Paris. Our portions are definitely on the smaller size than typical American fare restaurants. Our quality is also outstanding and we... More

I can't keep track of all the restaurants who have occupied this space in Hyde Park over the past twelve years. Decided to give Piquant a try on a Friday evening when they had a jazz singer. The acoustics are challenging enough without the live music. Food was good. Server was very nice, but seemed stressed that drink orders weren't... More

Dropped in for a break from shopping and had a very nice meal. My sister's hamburger was perfectly done, not an insignificant accomplishment and the adult grill cheese was delicious. Service was prompt friendly and server was knowledgeable about menu. Dessert were irresistible, we ended up picking some to take home to have with dinner. Setting was energetic but pleasantly...

I've eaten at this restaurant many times and the food has been excellent. Perhaps there is a new chef but I took three out-of-town guests here yesterday for lunch and it was the most disappointing experience. My adult grilled cheese had no cheese, my sister-in-law said the corned beef was horrible (and she doesn't ever complain about anything!), another sandwich... More
