The decor and vibes are beautiful. But unfortunately, thats about it. The food is WAY overpriced for the quality. Service is truly hit or miss. Very slow service.

I had a horrible visit at this restaurant, after dining there many times. The food is great, and the atmosphere is incredible. However, I have never been treated so poorly in a restaurant as I was here. For starters, I was seated for at least 20 minutes before I was greeted by the server. She took our drink order and disappeared for another 20 minutes. The food did not come out together (there were only four of us), and our drinks remained empty throughout the dining experience. To clarify, we were ordering alcoholic beverages and paying for them. Also, I had my infant with me. I had to change her stinky diaper in the beautiful bathroom. I immediately notified the manager that I had to deposit a dirty diaper in the bathroom GARBAGE can and he rolled his eyes, huffed and stormed away rather than thanking me for the consideration of letting him know. I will not be back.

This place certainly lives up to its name. A charming concept with a dash of elegance, a fusion menu, great quality coffee and teas (difficult to find in Tampa), mixed in with a unique giftshop/bookstore and drizzled with an atrium featuring a fountain in the center. If that doesn't convince you, then I can't help you. Enjoy.

One of the coolest places in Tampa - this old charmer has a little bit of everything, with lots of spots to catch up with friends or cozy up with a book or your laptop. The food is delicious and the coffee and tea bar give you more beverage options than can normally be found at a restaurant. I highly recommend dining in the atrium or settling into the large leather sofas set between the tea and coffee bars. The iced caramello is a real treat, made with their handcrafted caramel. The eggs benedict is also a delicious offering that puts a twist on the traditional with jalapeño crème, a roasted tomato, and bacon. If you are left waiting for a table grab a coffee or tea and peruse the unique gifts and books found in their shop. I hit this special spot up every time I come home to visit - it's simply a must!

Blown. Away. I wish I could bring this to my hometown in Orlando. The restaurant's details were truly created by a very thoughtful and creative set of minds. The service, food, decor and energy don't really compare to any restaurant I've been to. I ordered a prosecco and the chili dusted fried chicken. Holy mother. It was absolutely delicious, not too much food, and not dripping with grease. The sweet potato mash it came with was out of this world. The collard greens and bacon pieces were perfectly cooked. The presentation was perfection. If only Cask & Larder in Orlando served their fried chicken like this! Pulling off a classic southern dish and putting an upscale twist on it is not easy to do. Too much twist will turn off your guests. Stay traditional but crank up the quality and experiment with the seasonings. That's it. If I had to pick anything I would would be to have serve two chicken breasts or perhaps a slightly larger one. But I am perfectly full right that's probably the protein-seeking weightlifter in me speaking there. If you are reading this...make your reservation on OpenTable now. Seriously. The pictures don't even do it justice. I'm absolutely coming back the next time I'm in town.

I understand the points made by those who give the OE a bad review, but I strongly feel that it should be viewed as a service to our community. It is the only place in Tampa that I know of that feels like a New York City neighborhood meeting place on a large spacious scale. The food quality may not be the best, and the service may be hit or miss, but you can feel that everybody cares and is trying. I think that Tampa is a better place because of the OE !

Ehhh. We went to dinner at this place, it was okay. The atrium is really cool, but better with a group of your friends then just two people (super loud). Not sure what they are trying to do with the wine and alcohol menu and presentation...needs lots of work. Server was really nice, but really green and was maybe too new to play front man. I would not go back.
