The menu is unusual (I guess you could say creative) and the presentation is appealing. However, if you are looking for something relatively healthy to eat, you might want to skip this restaurant. Most of their food is either deep fried or heavily charred. Because I don't eat deep fried, heavily charred (burnt) food and am gluten free I had... More

We were taken to our table immediately upon arrival. Cocktails were good and delivered In a timely manner. Waiter was not particularly attentive - never even brought us water. The appetizers were good - we had deviled eggs and the barbecue ribs . We all four ordered different items and three of them were good. My husbands filet was tiny... More

We weren't sure by the outside of it, but we heard good things. It is one of our favorite restaurant in st Pete that we rotate in especially during happy hour. You have to try their Dr. Pepper Ribs. It's a small appetizer but you won't find anything like it in the area. Their dishes are very flavorful, unique, and... More

Tonight was my first stop at Z Grille. Staying at the Bayfront Hilton I was on my way to find something on Central when I heard laughter from the outside tables which made me stop and glance at the menu. I was hooked and wandered in. Being alone on business is not always the best opportunity for a nice meal... More

The place is nice and bigger than it looks. We were seated fast. The servers were young and attentive and the order came out fast. The menu is small but all we have was tasty and with a twist (avocado deviled eggs, fish sandwich, curry soup and fish tacos). Portions are big and on the expensive side for this type... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant which looks rather nondescript from the outside. It's all done up in a contemporary decor, with plastic chairs and colorful skateboards on the walls. Let the casual decor not sway you from the menu: it's seriously good food! I mean even for a picky vegetarian (cauliflower steak anyone?). The service was excellent and... More

The only thing I can say is avoid this place. Over cooked meal. No taste. Let no wait with no one in the place (clue #1).

Try the Dr. Pepper ribs and you will be hooked....and also the varieties of deviled eggs. Convenient location in downtown, and a spare modern decor. Good service.

This used to be our favorite place. Not so sure anymore after most recent visit. Menu has changed - now geared more towards simplicity/ sports bar menu with very few choices for regular dinner. Definitely check the menu before going, otherwise you maybe disappointed. However, the most disappointing part was the service. The servers were either new or completely overwhelmed... More
