I had dinner at Anise on Saturday with family. It is one of my favourite places when I visit family in Tampa. I love the ambience. The waitstaff are professional and friendly, the service prompt. We had a delicious meal of escargot's, shrimp tacos and chicken. Well done to the chefs! The drinks menu fulfills all needs! We really enjoyed... More

Bartender was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The menu was very interesting. We had the truffle tater tots first. We loved them. Great food to start. My girlfriend had the Baked Goat Cheese. It was very good and the baguette was fresh. Good portion too. I had the Lobster Mac with the bacon. We both felt the portion... More

This place is real nice. Their portions are not huge but the restaurant is a little pricy. It was a special occasion so we treated ourselves. Our waitress, Lauren, was awesome and it was a great place. We enjoyed it.

We had a group of 10-12 old friends reconnecting for. Nice evening. They accepted our reservation and could not have treated us better. We had plenty of time to visit and catch up. The food was delivered fresh, hot, cold, as expected.

I visited Anise during the College Football National Championship weekend as it is very convenient to most downtown hotels and Curtis Hixon Park and the Riverwalk. When looking for dinner late in the evening, Anise felt like a risky choice. The interior is very hip with leather benches, a long full service bar and clientele that typically appears to be...

The relaxed atmosphere, friendly bartenders and creative menu were a nice introduction to the area after checking in to my hotel on a Thursday evening. The small plates and steam buns (they call them Stinky Bunz) are great options when you don't feel like a big meal.

I was staying at a nearby hotel for business and wanted something other than fast food. I ordered the tater tots, Greek burger, and deviled eggs. All were very good. I did not eat at the restaurant, but the place looked nice. Staff were attentive in getting my to-go order.

I travel to Tampa for work and this is one of my favorite places to have lunch or dinner! It's more of a happy hour/dinner place, but I've had lunch here and the happy hour starts at 3pm. That works great for me since when I travel I don't like to eat too late. Seafood ramen bowl is awesome, shrimp... More

My wife and I had a wonderful, intimate dinner here. The grilled tuna tacos were delicious. I really liked the portions... I didn't get stuffed. We had the fried bunz for dessert...truly awesome! Nice and casual atmosphere. Great service. Great place for couples.

I was glad to see that this was not just another eclectic restaurant. I had the stinky buns and the butternut squash soup and they were surprisingly excellent. I will definitely return again.
