Wonderfully restored hotel, excellent lobby bar. The Crystal Dining Rom is reminiscent of something from Paris. Must try grilled octopus, greek salad and steak cooked to perfection.

Restaurant located in a historic Tampa hotel. Older feel inside with large chandeliers, antique style tables and rugs. The Salmon dinner is excellent and the service was great. Nice bar inside for before dinner drinks if desired. Nice stop before heading to the Straz Center!

We had Thanksgiving dinner here, it was delicious. The hotel dining room, is like walking back to the year 1950. White table cloths, crystal chandeliers, in a beautiful old hotel. The food, and service was great. When your downtown, definitely a restaurant to check out.
