The atmosphere is great. The portions are a disgrace. My very expensive steak was 3 bites. Unbelievably small. Scallops very salty. A real rip off.

The waiter was great & explained a lot about the background of the restaurant & best selections & was very helpful. Our lunch was roughly $100 which included: 3 beers, one side salad, one cup lobster bisque (w/ BIG chunks... More

Two couples stopped in to celebrate a friend's birthday. We started off by ordering a bottle of wine which turned out not to be properly chilled. While we waited, our server (Lisa) offered us complimentary champagne which was a nice touch. The dishes ordered at our table were the seared salmon, the lobster bisque, the shrimp and risotto, the salad... More

Had reservations for 3 at 8:00PM on Saturday, December 4th to celebrate the holidays with friends. Ordered wine and our food. Should have known something was wrong given the length of time for our meals to arrive. Steaks were overdone and food was lukewarm. Not what you expect when the tab is close to $400. Had been there before and... More

This place is normally a home run. I eat here 4 or 5 times a year and my last visit for a business dinner was off the mark. Service was on par, but food was not up to the normal capital standard. Famous lobster Mac was lacking the best part......lobster. Steaks were good but not great. I am hoping it... More

I have been here about a year ago, and it was superb then. We recently went again with a group, and when in large groups, I often expect the quality to go down. Not here. The steaks were outstanding, and the side dishes wonderful. I have lived in Tampa a long time, and have been to all the steakhouses a... More
