I have lived in Tampa for a long time and only just tried this restaurant. It was very good. I had the steak and frittes. The service was excellent and the place was very cozy. The day I went they had half price wine bottles.

The food here is good but the staff is disorganized and one person was actually rude. It's too bad actually, our waiter was excellent and the hostess as well. Unfortunately the manager accused us of ordering additional beverages and not paying for them. It was...More
