“Croque Madame and Bottomless Mimosas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Great food. Great service from Alex (sit at the bar!) just a very positive experience. Stayed in the Sofia Hotel and this restaurant opens off the lobby. Went for a nightcap the day before Alex-again- was very accommodating, since I got there shortly after he called last call. Went back for brunch on Saturday and was treated with the same graciousness and entertained while I took my time eating. The sandwich was large- couldn't finish it all. The fries were wonderfully crispy- my favorite. The decor is very fun/modern. TV's are around for sports viewing. Third night was busy busy and a pinch hard to get a spot at bar but service was still great.

“Nice Atmosphere and Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Stopped in to Currant to take advantage of their tasty happy hour menu. The mussels and fries were very good, the calamari was standard but good, and the mac and cheese had a bit of a different flavor to it...atmosphere is very nice and the service was excellent.

“Currant Brasserie in Hotel Sophia downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

This restaurant is a great find. Classy place with indoor and outdoor dining. In the historic Hotel Sophia, which is also a great place. Live in Tampa and have been to Currant several times, We always make it a point to go there a nice night out. Great service, great decor, great food. Alll good. Would highly recommend. Dining room has video monitors that continually show classic movies. A different popcorn flavor each day or as they feel llike changing it.

Check it out for a nice dinner out.

“Lovely bar & restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Lovely bar/restaurant to sit around in, especially at the bar stool.....was amazed at the speed, courteousness and efficiency of the Amber (bar manager)...she remembered my drink even though it is my second visit to this place. The food tastes awesome !
