“Excellent Customer Service & Tasty Food”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

At first our experience began poorly, with an unfriendly bartender who ignored us.
However, the hostess and the GM sure changed things. Our server Sara was fabulous as was the food.
The pastry chef outdid herself with my birthday Carrot Cake.
Loved the salad and the chicken sandwich. We will go back for dinner in the very near future and get the steak as we did last visit which was terrific as well.

“excellent food - friendly service.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We showed up without a reservation, and were told there would be a 45 minute wait. We sat at the bar, ordered wine, and ordered an appetizer (the fondue - def recommend it). I don't think we actually waited 45 minutes before we were seated, it went very fast.
Dinner was amazing. He had steak, I had pork. I wish we hadn't snacked on anything before or had an appetizer, because I really wanted to finish my meal.
The waiter was extremely friendly, service was great. Would come back if we ever make it down to Tampa again.

“Great Food and Good Service”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

This place has a great bar, if you like choice. The food was great - I had the Sea Bass and my friend had a steak, both were excellent. The service was really great. My eating habits have changed (due to surgery) and they were very accommodating. I now have two favorite places in Tampa (Bern's is the other one.) Prices were up there but for the food and service the value was good. It is located by a mall so the views were not there.

“Great Service and steaks”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We enjoyed great service from our waitress who was very knowledgeable and friendly. She knew the food and wines well and recommended a nice Zinfindel. The wines generally are marked up very high so there are limited choices under $75 by the bottle. The Kanas City steak was prepared as requested and had a nice flavor. All in all a good experience. The entertainment was good even if a little hard to hear in the restaurant area.
