As a St. Petersburg, FL resident I have enjoyed the Central Ave. Oyster Bar for many years. After my experience last night, I will not return. The service was TERRIBLE, and the food not much better than avarage. The live entertainment was also not great---- the homeless guy playing his guitar around the corner was a better singer.
The waitress did not introduce herself until her third trip to the table, I had to ask for water, and napkins. She messed up my order, brought my main course first and then 35 minutes later my salad course. My husband's order sat under the heat lamp until she brought it with my salad-- luke warm and over done.The mango sauce on the mahi was bland and the mahi itself was chewy and tough. My calamari was plentiful but not hot when it arrived at the table. We were charged incorrectly for the salad ( something that has happend several times there in the past), and the complimentary bread and oil never came to our table.
The restaurant was not crowded, and our waitress had only 3 tables to serve, so none of this can be blamed on an overworked wait staff.
I will not eat there again.
