Loved: Peanut butter pie desert Liked: Generous pours on the wine flight samplers Ambivalent: Sirloin steak and quality of wines in wine flight Service was good, but meal was not worth the $65 / plate it cost, even with the patio dining.

We ate dinner on a Friday night here. It was in walking distance from Embassy Suites Hotel. The view was amazing at night, as it's right on the water. However, it was a bit cold. They do have the outside heaters. The server awash friendly and quick. I had the vegetable dish. It was excellent. I would recommend this place... More

I was being lazy after a long day at the convention center and wanted to grab some quick food. It was OK, but it took awhile to bring the food out and outdoor bar was very loud. I don't think I would go back for that reason alone. Good Luck!

Nice outdoor scenic seating added tremendously for the good food. The service was fast and good. Its a bit pricy place, but overall its worth.

We were here with a large business group on a weds night, there was a large birthday party group right next to us, so unfortunately it took a long time to get our food. The restaurant was very busy as there were a lot of conferences going on downtown. Our server did his best, so it's understandable. Food quality was... More

I had dinner last night on an outside table last night and had good service and Sushi. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy and I walked in without a reservation. It is within easy walking distance from the convention center hotel area. I have better Shushi in other restaurants, and a lot worse, so I would place this establishment in the... More

Jackson/s Bistro is located opposite the Marriott-an easy walk over the bridge. Great views of the city lights if you are sitting on the dock.

Surprisingly busy for late Sunday. Great sign, we were not disappointed. Wish we had more time to try more selection. Sushi was unexpectedly superb. Thai lime dipping sauce was tart and well balanced by the spicy mayo artfully displayed under the lightly dusted and fried tender calamari. Oh and the view. Tampa Bay is a beautiful city.
