I'm disappointed by the service here. We made a reservation for after my graduation, and my party arrived about 30 minutes early, which was made clear by the staff to be unacceptable. We're reasonable people- we would have just preferred some understanding. It took them nearly 20 minutes to bring out enough chairs and menus for the entire party. When... More

This place has a great wine list and their house cocktails looked fantastic too. We had the cheese plate which was a good deal which 4 different cheeses, crackers and a bunch of fresh fruit. We would definitely go back.

I had the chicken picatto and my cousin had the meatloaf (sauce on side) and it was amazing! Great flavor and service!

There were four of us that had dinner at the Wine Exchange. We sat outside since it was a very nice evening. We were here on a Wednesday evening and they weren't very busy. Our waiter was very friendly and offered suggestions on the apps and entrees. Our food came out fairly quickly. For starters we had the deviled eggs.... More

Went here to meet friends and was surprised. First surprise was that due to construction in the area it was easy to get a table at 3pm. Second surprise was the wine list quite impressive by both bottle and glass. This area is under construction and has been for a while and it is definitely hurting the walk in business.... More

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
