Having checked in and realising we had an hour or so to spare, we made our way to the shops, We saw Mise en Place and decided to have coffee and brandy before the flight (I am a nervous flyer). While we were there it was lovely to "people watch". We had two servers (one was finishing his shift and the other one starting) Bryan and Sunlay. It is in a superb position; literally an oasis in the middle of a sea of lovely shops. A very nice way to spend spare time in an airport.

Several members of our company's top management and directors came to Tampa this past weekend for meetings and a little sunshine. Where to go to dinner on Friday night of Valentine's Day weekend? Mise en Place took the reservation for 15 people; had a wonderful round table in the middle of the restaurant ready on arrival; and courteously and professionally provided prompt and perfect service. The food on special days like this is often a prixe fixe format so do check ahead if you are going here on a special holiday, but each person remarked favorably about the quality and preparation of their meal. Entries were limited to filet of beef; veal scallopini; and salmon but the appetizers reflect the restaurant's desire to use fresh ingredients whenever possible. For groups like this, there are also great choices of wines both red and white that can accomodate most palates. What I appreciated most is that when you go out on a limb and suggest a place to eat, that the restaurant you choose does not disappoint you. Not only did Mise en Place not disappoint, they knocked it out of the park.

We had not been there for a while, but realized what we had been missing. Great food, drinks, wait staff, and ambiance. We will be back soon.
We went on Gasparillo night and it was a nightmare getting to the restaurant due to unannounced road closures. The manger greeted each of us with a complimentary glass of champagne and thanked us for staying with it. Very classy.

Although the food was a little above average, the portions were very small, which made the meal very expensive for what you received. Servers were pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. Will not go back.

You can fault me for being redundant about another visit to Mise en Place and another five star rating, but you cannot beat the combination of quality and value that this restaurant produces. It seems like when I read other reviews they must be going to a different place than we do and eating food from another planet. The five of us, including our eight year old grandson went to an early N Years Eve dinner and all five people were ecstatic including our San Francisco family who eat at all the great places in the Bay area. Each course on the prix fixe menu was better than the next and the wine choices keep expanding including some very good values from Burgundy in the $40-50/bottle range. The veal dishes that the chef prepares are a work of art and the unique appetizers and desserts are always a wonderful surprise. The parking and access are really easy and would choose this restaurant anytime for any dining event. Quality wait staff is also a big plus and whenever we are in need of getting to a show or another event, they are very sensitive to the time constraints.
