“Perfect in every way….”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

… from the bottled water and the amuse bouche when we were seated … to the intermezzo … to the espresso at the end of the evening… everything was perfect.

Four of us dinned there for a special birthday and the staff made the evening truly special. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. The wine was topped off regularly, but glasses were never overfilled.

The room is dark, clubby, with an ambient sound level conducive to good conversation.

If you need to get away from the sameness of the dinning venues at or near the attractions, this is the place to go.

“First anniversary meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We have recently returned from Florida, celebrating our first wedding anniversary.
We spent our anniversary evening in Chatham's Place restaurant. This was highly rated on trip advisor (#2 in Orlando). We reserved a table many weeks in advance.

We were absolutely delighted with our choice. We were immediately made to feel welcome by the Maitre d' and shown to our table, alongside the wonderful live piano player.

We picked from the extensive wine list, and sampled the delicious bruschetta.

Our friendly waiter kept our water and drinks topped up throughout our meal, I chose the Caprese salad as a starter with a main of Fillet Mignon steak with a delicious peppercorn sauce.
My wife chose the caesar salad to start, with the chicken louisiana as a main.

We were not disappointed, it was sumptuous- I frequently eat steak, it will be some time before I find one as juicy and tasty as this!

All in all, great service, a really pleasant romantic atmosphere- it was perfect!

We were a group of six. All of us love good food./We were not disappointed. The service was awesome; the food was delicious; the wines were great, and not overpriced. This is a great place - we could not have been happier!

“A perfect place for a meal that you wish to feel like an event.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

This place has it all- fresh ingredients, quality not quantity focus, atmosphere, impeccable service, and the personal touch that makes your meal one that you will remember. We were there for our anniversary. I will be back with my staff for their holiday dinner. Amazing from start to finish.

“Exquisite 5 star for special occasions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Awesome anniversary experience at this charming local restaurant is Tampa folks found on tripadvisor. We were seated right near the romantic and charismatic live piano player who of course takes requests. With a little he even jazzed up our fur Elise. Wine bottles and other Italian accoutrements line the walls and create a great decor in this quaint setting. Service was top notch with extensive and personal knowledge of all offerings wine etc. the maitre d even stopped by several times with helpful tips and conversation but not so much to be intrusive. Food was exquisite although a bit undercooked. However I think that was our doing as we had duck and lamb not our usual - I didn't even mention this it was still fabulous. Even better were several surprises including bruschetta olives and palette cleansers - sorbet. And the limoncello afterward! Strong but quite tasty. We had never even heard of this before but it is amazing and chefs own recipe requiring lengthy and painstaking preparation. The place was outstanding for a special ocassions. Thank you all for wonderful experience.
