Our experience surpassed expactations. A mix of Italian and Spanish flavours, with an amazing creativity. The pistachio Gazpacho..with jamon iberico, just AMAZING! Zeppole with prosciutto and tuna tartare with quail egg, 10cum laude!

Food was good but management was horrendous. It's a shame that the manager ruined what would have been a great night over $2.00. After paying the $150.00 (no drinks) bill my wife and I noticed we had no cash for the valet and asked the manager if we can give an extra tip on our credit card and receive $2.00 cash tip for the valet. He rudely responded no and said he couldn't help. He said I am free to find an atm but he will not help in any way. I just think that is horrible service and someone like that should rethink his position in the hospitality business.

Just ate there before the game and it was just delicious. I can now say I have had a rosemary doughnut and I want MORE! Beer list was small but interesting and same for the wines and cocktails. And like others said, it was not fast food. And WE were happy that it was not fast food. It was worth whatever the wait! Yum.

Disappointing!! That doesn't begin to describe our horrible experience. We had reservations for our anniversary and were promptly sitted upon arrival. The experience quickly deteriorated after that. We had a longer than usual wait to be greeted by our waiter but he made up for his tardiness with a friendly attitude and assurances to us that the food would be delicious. That along with a similar greeting by the valet before we entered the restaurant got us excited for the meal to come. The waiter took our drink orders, our one appetizer order and our entree orders all at the same time because we could tell things must have been busy and wanted to make sure we got out in time for the show we were attending afterwards. We waited approximately 20 minutes to get our drinks. These were fine but packed with ice so that after a few sips your drink was almost gone. And if you order wine, it will be exactly 4 ounces maybe less - not a drop more. As we were waiting for our appetizer to arrive, a celebrity and his wife arrived. He was immediately seated and greeted by several staff members. We then watched as a parade of staff members fawned over him. We finally received our appetizer about 45 minutes after we had arrived. We ordered the potatoe crusted oysters and I will say they were good. At this point we were becoming concerned about the time and we informed our food runner to make our waiter aware that we had tickets to a show. The waiter reassured us that we would receive our entrees soon. Before we even finished our appetizer, the celebrity was served an appetizer when he had been seated for about 10 minutes. As we continued to wait for our entrees, another appetizer was brought to the celebritie's table. After another 20 minutes we told our waiter that we didn't want to have to rush eating our entrees and he told us the kitchen was backed up but our food would be out soon. We mentioned to him that the celebrity seemed to be getting served very quickly. He denied this which was an obvious cover up. (Of course, the celebrity was not responsible for any of this. He was just a celebrity diner having a meal out.) Note that this is a fairly small dining room. Only a totally mismanaged kitchen could take over an hour to produce two entrees. The manager finally came over to our table to ask how long we had before we had to leave. We informed him that we had to leave in 15 minutes. He disappeard and never came back with our entrees. After we had sat for 1 1/2 hours the only food to touch our table was one small appetizer. The celebrity was basically eating something almost the whole time he was there. We finally waited until the last possible minute we could and then had to leave. The most disappointing part of the whole experience was that this was our anniversary and the restaurant knew this because they asked when we made the reservations (10 weeks in advance) if this was a special occasion. They not only ruined our anniversary dinner but also devalued us as customers. There are so many wonderful restaurants in Tampa that we could have chosen and had a great anniversary dinner! I can't believe we ended up at this one. I know we will never go back there again! Wouldn't it be nice if all customers could be treated like a celebrity because, at the end of the day when all of the receipts are tallied, isn't everyone's money green?

We had 4 courses, they were all fabulous. I truly believe there is nothing bad on the menu. Our server was Rob and he was very polite and knowledgeable of the menu. This was an all-around 5 star experience and we'll be back!!!

Drove passed it twice. Unassuming. Dark even. For a bit I thought it might be closed, but could not possibly. Social Wednesdays. Found the valet parking and saw the orange E. My mental picture completely wrong. I had imagined it lounge-ish, a place to hang out and drink expensive, crafted cocktails tilting your head back in laughter. A pout. All tables full. The long bar looking like a very busy cafeteria. Unfriendly. Many men still wearing suits and ties eating mindfully. A table/booth in the middle of a lonesome corridor that shared a wall with a very noisy kitchen. Felt trapped in a train cart to nowhere. My ear searched for music…could not come up with any…but there was this continuous noise lingering enough to almost make conversation-having a daring act. The service impeccable and honest about suggestions. Mindful to ask about allergies and spicy surprises. Felt sexy and went for the Rockefeller Oysters. Fresh and perfectly grilled. Missed the anticipated and offered candied bacon. Felt nostalgic for Jaime’s sopa de ajo and risked getting over his by ordering one. Lovely, but I like the sopa de ajo with more bread and less caldo. Other spices overcame the garlic and it was hot and hearty, but some flavors ran amuck. As for the liquid diet…Tried some “El Matador,” “Smashed Rickey” (sort of like a Moscow mule), chocked on a “Sazerac” (and I drink unlady like, but that pink concoction grew me a mustache) and will avoid ever ordering an Emerald City. But I had been warned the city would be sweet…ooooohhhh eeeeeeeeeee. Yes, it was. But so pretty to look at. Its own little E bottle like a perfume. Enjoyed a sipping cocktail of “Fountain of Youth,” St. Augustine New World gin, St. George Spiced pear liqueur and vermouth. Could have drunk ten of those small babes with this sailor liver of mine. So went for bigger pastures before having to sell some jewelry to afford my drinking. Changed to “Irish Goodbye,” and loved the booziness. Lingered on the whiskey as I watched everyone leave. Like a train that had found its station. So much gray. The semblance of an intention. The “food and drink” lab. Great but Unfun. Why did drinking have to go so scientific?

Celebrated my birthday in Tampa here. It was amazing! The staff is incredibly attentive and knowledgeable. The appetizers we tried were creative and delicious. I cannot wait to go back to Tampa to visit again!

Great food, bad service. Hope you good on a good day because the food is actually great and the atmosphere is great but the waiter was off point and there were ants inching in through the window we were sitting next to. Hope it can become a 5 with a few improvements
