Maybe the best dining experience of the last 12 months for me. Great service, nice ambience, amazing food. The flavor combinations were incredible. Nice selection of wines by bottle and by the glass. Sit at the chef's table for a great experience.

This place has great decor and has a good hang out vibe.....but in my 2 hours watching the cooks, not one of the 3 ever washed their hands. I watched each cook touch their mouths, eat food, scratch their beards, play with phones, handle garbage, and never wash hands. To top it off one of the cooks stood on the prep table to acess his ingredients on the top shelf and didn't clean after his dirty shoes. I hope they take ServSafe or brush up on food safety. Cool place.

Here's what can be said about Rooster & the Till... a) It's not chain food where you pay $14.99 for a garden salad, sirloin steak and baked potato. If this is your idea of value and good food, you SHOULD NOT go here. If these are your expectations, they will keep you from enjoying your experience. In my opinion, the food here will take you out of "Tampa" and the experience will do the same. b) It's not like other restaurants in the neighborhood, the experience is completely unlike anything else in the bay area. The food is prepared in front of you if you're sitting at the bar. The staff will treat you like friends, try and get to know you, and probably invite you to check out other spots in the neighborhood. The service has always been excellent in my visits. c) The menu has changed a few times since they've been open, albiet, they have kept a few mainstays like the Pork Belly. I've ordered this dish every time I've visited and it never disappoints. Yep, it's a smaller portion, but I think the whole point of each dish here is to have amazing taste, texture, and complexity. And honestly, if you don't feel comfortable spending $12 on a small plate of food for yourself, you should reevaluate how you treat yourself, you're probably worth it... I don't seafood so I can't say anything about those dishes... So, if you want to try something new and maybe even enjoy yourself, treat yourself to a night out even if you have to work an extra day to afford it. The place is worth it!

Great food, but portion's were so small, it was funny actually. I think it's a great place to go with a group and drink and just snack a little, but you will probably leave hungry. However, the food was really good, and the atmosphere is fun. Waiters are good, etc.

First, the place SMELLED horrible when we walked in for our first visit. Honestly, and I hope I'm wrong, the scent was old urine. Second, the staff was over the top pretentious. Strange attitude considering the restaurant is located in a less than upscale area. We left without ordering and WILL NOT RETURN. There are far too many other good choices in Tampa.

I don't know what the other reviewers are talking about - the food at this place is AMAZING! I love the concept of shared plates because everyone gets to try more things. Everything on the menu is fabulous, reasonably priced (considering the exceptionally high quality of the food), and the wine and beer selection is great too. If your'e on a budget, the wine menu offers several very good $25 bottles, or you can bring your own for a $15 corkage fee. The best part about the whole restaurant (if you're a foodie) is dining at the kitchen bar. You can watch the chefs prepare the meals and if they're not too busy, they'll talk with you about the food or whatever else. Finally, the service is just outstanding - everyone is incredibly friendly, polite, and prompt.

Best new chef and best restaurant in the tri city(Tampa, St Pete, Clearwater) area for me. Finally a place that doesn't leave me wishing I was eating back in California. Well conceived, cooked, and plated. Duck Heart Tartare, was a perfect execution of how to prepare and serve offal. Parisan Gnocchi with pate a choux perfectly light and pillow like for the palate. Rich ricotta and moist short rib, with the pepporonata providing the right punch of acidity and color to a great dish! Wish they had a few more wines by the glass, otherwise....SUPERB!

So, maybe I'm not a foodie, but I wasn't impressed. The restaurant looks cool and the concept is neat, but I'm not wild about the execution. The portions are extremely small considering our server explained they are meant to be shared. Between four people we ordered five different small plates and one larger portion (which really wasn't any larger). Nothing was particularly amazing (not bad, but not anything great). For $50, we'll go somewhere else.
