Definitely my "go to" spot when I can't decide where to eat or have someone visiting. Always tell everyone this is by far one of my favorite local restaurants. Everything has always been perfect!

Despite the ongoing renovation nearby, we still had a very enjoyable lunch at the Wine Exchange outdoor seating area. The meals were good, service was attentive, and we all had a good time.

Food was disappointing. I remember this place having amazing food. Ordered the grouper which was smothered in hash browns and cheese and it was to be black grouper. It was so fishy I couldn't eat. The waiter very nice and took it off the bill. Thank you Tyler. The pizza and salads were great. Guess it's better for small plates.

We stopped here for lunch as it was close to our shopping destination. My cocktail was way too sweet and without much flavor However my steak with potatoes and mixed vegetables was perfect--tender and flavorful. However, my husband was disappointed with his chicken salad plate--it was just an average chicken salad. Service was average and not as good as we... More

As a practicing attorney, I frequently have to meet clients and other lawyers for lunch. There is no better place in Tampa for this kind of lunch. The food is excellent, the service is good, and the noise level is quiet enough to carry on a conversation. It is in a good location in Old Hyde Park Village and there... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch at the bar and the bartender suggested the grilled duck breast salad. Huge, fresh, delicious and the duck breast was perfectly grilled to medium. A really nice wine selection as you would expect, and I was not disappointed in my choice. Service was timely and efficient.

Enjoyed this restaurant for dinner with some of my wonderful friends... The dishes were on point, super tasty and unique. The service was not so great. Our server was awkward and made our experience pretty uncomfortable. Hate to be so brutally honest, but it ruined the vibe. My friends tried everything from a special pasta dish with a chimichurri cream... More

I appreciated the extensive wine list by the glass. The food was good. The bartender was very kind and the service was timely. The wine was slightly pricey, and the food seemed to be priced appropriately. I would return.

Our large group had reservations on a Wednesday night and sat outside, which was nice. Staff was incredibly friendly and attentive, and service was prompt and at our pace - not theirs. I tried something totally different for me, gnocchi with anchovies and it was very good. Plenty of food; I took half home. We had some delicious appetizers -... More

I have enjoyed The Wine Exchange for many years. They have a wonderful back patio which is shaded and a great place to dine al fresco. Their grape chicken salad is amazing and before I was gf I loved their blu pizza with steak, walnuts and gorgonzola. They feature pastas as well as traditional entrees. It's a happening place in...
