“great place to live”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

South Tampa has everything you want: great restaurants, bars shopping and entertainment. Rarely are there traffic problems. A big city feel.

“Restaurant precinct okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We asked the taxi to choose the best Asian restaurant.
It was okay but lacked any sparkle on a week night with staff sitting around buffing their nails.

“Trendy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Trendy South Tampa is the place to see and be seen. It's full of young hipsters as well as the Tampa gentry. There are trendy restaurants, bars, and cafes. Bern's steakhouse is a must if you have never been. President's dine here! The dessert room is a great way to end the evening. At Hyde Park Village you can stroll the shops including the anchor stores Pottery Barn and William-Sonoma.

“GREAT SOCIAL SCENE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Lots of bars and restaurants and History with Cobblestone Streets in some areas. Particularly enjoyed a Mexican Taco/Tapas Bar called the Lime on Hyde Avenue, I believe.
