The food was delicious and the service was great. It’s a beautiful, spacious restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Every dish we had was amazing, but perhaps the best was the burrata with apricot snd blackberry mostarda appetizer. It was incredible.

We celebrated my daughter's engagement this evening at 400 Beach and the experience was fantastic. Ashley went above and beyond to make this evening special. She was attentive, educated and even brought a complimentary glass of champagne for everyone at the table to celebrate the...engagement. The food was exceptional and all of our requests were executed and the clam chowder was the best I have ever had!

Ate dinner there last summer (June 2021). The atmosphere and location are great. However, the food is mediocre. When you have to put goopy, thick sauce on everything to hide the real flavor, you are not eating well-prepared food. Most people would like that type...of food, but I am fussy and prefer the real flavors to stand out on their own. The service was fine.More

We have been there many time but this time the meals were from horrible to mediocre at best. There were 6 of us and we sat outside. It was kind of a special evening and it was a bit spoiled by the poor quality of...the food. The Salmon was terribly over cooked and we complained so the waiter took it off the bill. I had the fish and chips which was pretty good but the fries were very soggy and a bit over salted. No one had a great meal and we spent over $200 for the 6 of us with the one meal removed. I don't mind spending money but one would expect excellence from 400 Beach. . The view was great but not worth the bad food. Waiter was great. Manager never stopped by.More

Great location! They also offer valet parking. Just make sure to validate your ticket before pick-up you car. Plenty of tables outdoors, but if you prefer seating inside, it is twice as many. Adequate service. Table was not completely cleaned up before was offered to...us. The drinks came quickly, as well the appetizers. We believe they should have given us more time to enjoy our cocktails. Both appetizers and main courses were delicious. Fresh, well presented, but quite small. $34 for four scallops it is too much! Fish and chips for $19 is reasonable. Would we go back? Probably.More

We had a 5:30 pm reservation and the restaurant was at a low capacity around 30%. It took other servers with surrounding tables to get our server’s attention and to get her to introduce herself as such. By 6:30 pm, it was a struggle just...to get appetizers by the time. Entrées took way too long and the server continued to pass our table while making sure other tables were serviced frequently. We ended up walking out. We understood that we were not welcomed and left given we got assigned the wrong server of all servers. Yvonne does not take her job as a server seriously, she is quite unprofessional and not hospitable to any and all. Sad experience to say the least. We got way better food and service elsewhere. She might as well shouted Let’s Go Brandon when she passed by our table. The vibe was horrible from her. We ended up reporting the matter to management by the end to explain why we were not willing to wait for entrées. If anyone else serves your table, it should be okay. You shouldn’t have to watch all other patrons that were seated after you for the establishment to reach 50-60% capacity before you realize the intention of certain staff members. No stars is a more appropriate rating to be honest.More

First- make reservations online, a very busy location. The city is beautiful, and since the restaurant is located on a corner at the end of downtown it gets less traffic which I liked, people aren’t walking through the outside dining. The view at night again...beautiful. There is plenty of space between walkers and dining. The menu is limited and pricey, but this was to be expected. I would not take small children who do not eat adult meals, and do not appreciate good food. Our boys, 13 had the smashed burger and lobster Mac and cheese- which had chunks of lobster claw- both were very good. Portions are small, but again when you’re fine dining that is typical downtown. Their calamari and corn bread delicious! My mom had the filet, for $46??? Something like that- cooked perfectly. We are harsh food critiques as our entire family cooks. If the experience was overall a little less expensive or the dinners came with salads or cornbread we would give it a 5, but we had to get salads which were only large enough for 1 person ala carte $14 and purchase the cornbread as well. They know they will get the traffic so nothing comes complimentary, which goes against our family restaurant tradition, so a 4 it is.More

Situated at the corner of Beach Drive NE and 5th Ave NE this very nice restaurant lives up to Seafood and Tap House name. A very nice wine list and full array of beers, including my favorite the local Tampa Jai Alai IPA on tap....A nice menu selection, although not as extensive as it used to be pre-pandemic, with an Italian flavor. But nevertheless something for every one and the gluten-free items are all well marked...my wife was happy! I opted for the Cioppino and my wife got the absolutely delectable Wild Mushroom Risotto with an emphasis on the wild mushrooms...not white or portobellas but the real thing... King Trumpet mushrooms. I had a bit of it and I would recommend the risotto any day! The Cioppino was OK but I thought tat it was too loaded with seashell pasta, and a bit short on seafood and not as it should be if you get it on the waterfront in San Francisco like a seafood stew with rich broth. But 400 is nevertheless a keeper. Watching the passers-by made it all the more pleasant eveningMore

Overall a very enjoyable dinner with some highs and lows. The mussel appetizer is truly amazing ! I would return just for that. Oysters were good size and salads were fresh. The service was great also. Was not a fan at all of the lobster...roll. Lobster mushy and over cooked. The bread was way too thick and doughy for a lobster roll and no need for wilted lettuce either. The chicken was also over cooked and pretty dry. The place was very busy and very lively and the service was great so definitely try it. There were plenty of choices for a wide variety of tastes.More
