We had lunch at Paul’s Landing in theVinoy hotel. Our wait person, Wanda gave us a wonderful history of the area, and the origin of the restaurants namesake, in addition to excellent service. There were 6 of us, we each had something different from the...menu, and everyone was very happy with their meal, presentation was lovely. I usually get fish tacos if they are available, and mine were delicious. The hotel too is something to see, worth taking a stroll through if you are not staying there.More

Ok I Love Marriott properties. Had a group of 10. Made reservations weeks in advance. This was not good! We ordered burgers/skirt steak/ salads. Nothing fancy. Burgers were either raw or well done not close to what was ordered. Steaks were fried to a crisp....French fries were cold. What a mess! As we left we were told they had never discounted or give away so many meals for free. Then we were angry as we paid for ours. We are all locals, and planning to make a trip to the Vinoy in May to stay at the marina. Paul’s will NOT be on the list.More

The view is lovely but it ends there. We went for a “fancy lunch” at this luxury hotel, and were disappointed. The service was painfully slow. For the cost of the food it was very average, we have gotten much better at our little hotel,...the Hollander (The Tap Room). Consistently we have had much better food and service at small, locally owned establishments here in St Pete. Skip the corporate places, go local.More

We love the Vinoy and returned for New Years after being here a couple of years ago. Of course with the pandemic the fine dining we had was gone. However the Ritz Carlton Naples still had their nice restaurants. They close at 9pm. Wine in...a plastic cup. Limited menu. Would not come back.More

More of a Pool Bar/Restaurant - But Very Good While staying at the Renaissance Vinoy St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club in March, for my wife to attend several days of business meetings, I had the opportunity to dine at Paul’s Landing, in the hotel....Now, Paul’s Landing could be called the “pool bar/restaurant,” and that would be correct, as it sits overlooking the hotel’s pool complex, basically located between the historic main building, and the newer, but matching Tower. Paul’s Landing also has cabana seating, overlooking the pool complex. It is a more casual bar/restaurant, than is Marchand’s, in the historic main building. It does have a nice bar, but it also has a nice restaurant, with a focus on seafood. As a restaurant, I felt that it did a very good job. I had stopped in for lunch, and wine, and found that I was in the right place. I was a bit early, so the staff at Paul’s was just setting up. I could have chosen to sit on one of two veranda’s, one facing the harbor, and the other overlooking the pool complex, or a table, but opted to sit at the bar. The general theme is nautical with tropical undertones, as should be expected, from a bar/restaurant looking out to the harbor on one end. While I noticed several TV sets, at both the bar, and around the restaurant area, they were all muted. The noise level was almost non-existent, but then I was quite early, so do not know what it would be like on say a Saturday night with football on every TV? As the restaurant was just setting up, I worried about service so early, but should not have, as there was adequate staff, and I had the wine list, and the menu quickly. At one end of the bar, the Director of Restaurants, Marina Baronas, was conducting a class for several of the bartenders, and servers, and mixing some cocktails for tasting. I assume that they were contemplating adding those to the cocktail list, and it appeared that the assembled staff was from several of the hotel’s restaurants/bars. That looked like fun. Later, I did get to speak with her about her “Women in Wine” event/program, about which I had seen several posters around the lobby. Unfortunately, beyond a few wines from featured vineyards, at several of the bars during that time, we were basically going to miss most of that event. It still was telling of the hotel’s commitment to wines, and I took note of that for a future visit. Besides the menu, there was a roll of butchers’ paper, hanging near the entrance, with several specials of the day written on it. Since two walls of Paul’s basically open to the outside, and one can enter from three directions, do look near the main entrance, for specials, if your server does not point those out. I decided on the Fresh Fish Tacos (Grouper this day), which were quite good, with a tasty Corn & Bean Salsa and hot sauce in a pharmaceutical bottle, with an eye-dropper - saw lots of those around. I did the Chalk Hill Chardonnay and the Acrobat Pinot Noir, from the short B-T-G list. Compared to some other restaurants/bars on-property, Paul’s Landing’s offerings are rather limited, but with enough to work with. Service was good, friendly and efficient, and I wanted for nothing - except maybe better glassware and a longer wine list. In the case of the former, considering that Paul’s Landing is also the “pool bar,” I am not surprised at the stemware. Bright, attractive and with interesting views, to match the food and service, Paul’s was very good for my lunch.More

Super cute little place in a hotel overlooking a gorgeous pool. Fun decor and very summery. Hotel bar prices but very yummy stiff drinks. Loved the lemonade frozen drink. Menu was small but not sure from COVID or the norm.

Little bit on the pricey side for what they offer. Drinks were pretty good but, $13 a pop? A little excessive. Small menu.

Outstanding service. Ask for Wanda she’s the best. Great personality even better service. The sea food was super fresh and the view is outstanding. We had to come back 1 year later just for the lobster rolls. Gf on lettuce. And the Tito’s and soda...was never empty. Thanks vinoy and Wanda. See you next yearMore

I don’t remember a Happy Hour. But I would guess that if there was a HH, it would be in the bar in the hotel.
