We were just in St. Pete for a week and finally got around to dining at Ceviche. Here's what you need to know: It gets crowded and noisy. We went on Saturday night at 6--no reservations for fewer than 6 people and we were two. They said it starts getting really busy at 7 but it was already crowded so be warned. Many people like the veranda tables. We had the last table for two inside, near the door. Never mind, menu is overwhelming with great choices. We had one house ceviche--very tasty, and one order of boquerones (Spanish anchovies) which was great. We then ordered two fish tapas--mahi mahi and salmon. DIdn't pay attention--both were prepared the same in a lovely sauce with leeks. Perfectly cooked, a bit on the rare side, very fresh. And we ordered a lamb shank which was tender and delicious and a portobello mushroom stuffed with spinach and with two sauces--divine. Our big mistake was to put in all orders at once so the food kept rushing out and we were gobbling it down. Later, our innkeeper said he should have told us to order one or two at a time so that we could have savored the food, which was savor worthy. The server was nice but a bit harried--so many tables, so little time. With all this in mind, definitely go but take my advice! Oh, and the bread pudding with vanilla ice cream--no room but we managed to eat every crumb. Yum!
