“Best movie theater in Tampa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Cinebistro is great. It has stadium seating, limited number of seats, few (if any) kids/teens, serve dinner/drinks (alcohol too) to you, and is clean. This is the best theater to see a movie in and not have to worry about teenagers on their phones or people talking during the flick. It is only a couple dollars more expensive but worth every penny. Plus, the food is good too!

“something was wrong with the food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I watched the film "Spectacular now" and I loved. Also the theatre is marvelous. However they need to pay attention with the cooker because something was wrong with my food. I couldn't sleep this night and I am feeling really bad. I hope they repair this problem because if this problem happened again they are going to loose a lot of clients.

“Great theater concept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a theater with a 21+ policy - so you can enjoy a movie without screaming kids and vacant parents. Now f only we can get adults to behave the way our mothers taught us... sigh.

The movie is seen from an extremely comfortable plush seat. If you want to sit in the front row they even provide that row Ottomans. I personally wished the seat went a couple of inches further back but really stopped noticing that 'flaw' after five minutes.

If you want - and arrive at least thirty minutes early - the staff will take your order and feed you dinner at your seat before vanishing when the previews start. Optionally you can eat in the lounge. Service is excellent in either locale, staff is friendly and helpful and if they didn't have a mandatory 7% tip built in I would have tipped higher.

The food is good and may be a little overpriced depending on what you think things should cost -- but it isn't out of line given the venue. They have a special deal on popcorn of all you can eat for 8 dollars.

It also features a full bar so you can drink what you like before, during and after the movie.

“Fun place for a film”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A fun place to see an "event" type film. Very comfortable leather chairs. Good service. Food is actually decent and arrives quickly so you can eat before the movie begins. On the nights I have attended, everyone was respectful eaters - no chomp, chomp, chomp during silent parts.

“Way overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Great little theatre with good wine and good drinks, but you should not have to pay $14.50 for a ticket. I have been to many movie grills and the ticket is much cheaper and they make their profit on the food and drinks. Unless there is a great documentary, we will stick to another theatre or Redbox.
