“Ambiance is the best part.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

The decor truly is lovely and very relaxing--even rather romantic. Overall the restaurant was fine, but I wouldn't write home about it.

Why? The menu is ho-hum, and the dishes were average to above average the night I was there with friends who were in the area from out of state. There are other good restaurants nearby, so unless it's pouring outside, you might want to get out and explore those others. Maybe we just chose the wrong things, but for me it was disappointing. The server was nice, but a little slow even though the restaurant was nearly empty at the early hour we met to eat.

Thank you for your comments. We apologize the dish you ordered fell below your expectations. We hope you will give us another chance in the near future and if something is not to your satisfaction, please let us know right there and we will make it right for you.

In regards to the server being slow, there is no reason for it. We will talk about it in our daily meeting to avoid situations like this happening again. Again, please accept our apologies.

Regards,

211 Management

“Best Fish Tacos EVER!#!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

I just arrived and was too tired to go somewhere else for dinner so I decided to give the hotel eatery a spin. Was not disappointed. If you like spicy and flavorful you must try the fish tacos. Two of tuem are plenty. And my server Natalie is an absolute joy. Week is starting on a high note which I needed after the horrendous flight here.

Can't say enough about Mary. She is an excellent server with a great attitude. I would recommend asking for her table when you go there.

“Great way to spend valentines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

We were back at the Hilton to go see the Florida Orchestra and decided to eat at the 211 restaurant for dinner. They had a Valentines Tasting menu paired with wine that was just excellent. I had the grouper with prawns and my husband had the filet duo. The chocolate lovers dessert was really rich and creamy. Service excellent as always.
This restaurant is a hidden gem- if you are ever downtown in Tampa, you have to try it. They have outside patio seating also. The lounge is great too for a more casual menu.
