We are moving out of state soon and I had one last chance to have lunch here. Came around 1pm on Tuesday. Sat at a small high top near the bar where you can order verses ordering in the line. Drink orders were taken fairly quickly but took a while to be delivered. We had to ask for Splenda numerous... More

BEST. Chicken Salad. EVER BEST Cheeseburger. EVER This is an order at the counter and sit down they bring the food to you place. Unless you sit at the full service bar, which we did not. I told the nice lady that took our order that it was our first time there, she gave me a cupcake and a chocolate... More

This south Tampa restaurant is in a small shopping center. The parking lot crowd speaks for the popularity of this restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have never had a bad meal here. Because it is so popular, it is also noisy at the peak times of day and evening. Nonetheless the food is fabulous and the service... More

Make a reservation if you want a table. It's busy and worth the wait. We did not have a reservation, so we sat at the bar. So glad because we had a great time. Friendly service, great food and wine. We will definitely go back.

This is by far one of my favorite local eateries. I have had my birthday dinner here numerous times, also due to them having the best cupcakes in town. Check the specials online daily if you are just visiting, they never disappoint.

In Tampa visiting sis and her hubby and their favorite spot down the street is Pane. We were able to get a table ( near bar area ) quickly after calling earlier. I would agree that the happy hour crowd was pretty loud but we weren't too bothered by it ( better than boring silence or mis-matched music ). We... More

but incredibly noisy. Very difficult to talk with our server but he went out of his way to suggest and serve wonderful food. I enjoyed the watermelon salad and would highly recommend that to anyone visiting. The Twin Cheeks small plate hit this flavor spot. So good.

Takeout, lunch or dinner-are all top notch. I have yet to have anything but a fabulous meal. The wait & bar staff are on their game-attentive, cheery & make the experience feel personal.
