Ciccio's / Water Ratings and Reviews
We used to go to the Ciccios in St. Pete all of the time, but a new job and a new house has us over in the Tampa area. We stopped by to check out their 2 dollar tacos (or "flats" as they call them" and the menu was a little different than the st. pete store. This one focuses more on the sushi side of things so there were lots of delicious tuna options. The decor and ambiance was awesome. Saw signs for live music on certain nights of the week. They have a big room off to the side for large parties. The bar itself was really cool. You could tell this is a weekend hot spot. I would definitely recommend this place for lunch, dinner, evening, weekend. all of it
Great service and good food, unique for Tampa area. Way too loud for older folks like me but probably a perfect decibel level for 20- and 30-somethings. Free valet parking a big plus. BIg minus: no draft beer. With the quality of southwest Florida's craft beer, that's is a big hole in the menu for this type of restaurant.

Good food, good service. A little tight in terms of space, so I got to hear about the hot girls who the two guys next to me were dm'ing through Instagram, and how siracha was the coolest hot sauce they knew. But the live musician helped to drown out the blabber fueled by the latter end of bottomless mimosas from my seat mates.

Food was great and our server was really good! Only issue I had was the music was a little too loud. Great for a club scene, but for just dinner I had to kinda scream so I could be heard. Other than that everything else was great!
Lunch with Karyn
I introduced a friend to Ciccio Water, as she lives on her sailboat seasonally from Arizona. She is a great cook most of Soutwestern cuisine. She really enjoyed her lunch, the atmosphere and service. We have made reservations to return for a double date for Valentine's Day.

Had a reservation and they were ready for us even though we were 20 minutes early and the place was packed since it was Gasperilla weekend! Service was unbelievably amazing!! Friendly, fast, perceptive. Food was mediocre but I'd go back cause it's a cool place.
Great brunch spot
Hit Ciccio's for Sunday brunch. Enjoyed everything about the experience. Food was amazing and unique. I had the american benedict (eggs, burger, bacon, hollandaise sauce, homefries) and my girlfriend had a bowl with spaghetti squash, chicken, and other yummy stuff. We both loved the food and also enjoyed a spicy tuna roll appetizer. We went with bloody marys and those were great as well. We'll be back to try the many other interesting things on the menu as well as the bottomless mimosas.
After we were seated, Our waiter took about 15-20 minutes to even come over and get our drink order. This took another 10 minutes at the least. They eventually comped our drinks which was nice, but we were constantly waiting for our waiter to be anywhere near us. We would often have to flag down another waiter to bring us stuff after we'd already ask our main waiter. Then at the end of the meal the restaurant was closing and they seemed annoyed that we were still there even though we were simply waiting for our checks. This was on a Monday night too. All in all, I would go there again because it's close to where I live, but the overall vibe of the restaurant and its workers is beyond pretentious.
Poor accommodation by manager
I made a reservation online for this restaurant. Upon arriving I was told our table was outside. It was a very hot day and we asked if we could be seated inside given we had a reservation. We were told by the waitress that this was not possible and that because we made the reservation online we had second preference. We asked to speak to the manager who further reiterated that we had second preference due to making a reservation online. He also asked why we had not added a comment that we wanted to be seated indoors in the reservation. The manager made no effort to reconcile the situation. In my mind a reservation is a reservation whether made online or over the phone. The fact that there was no place where it asked for preference for seating location makes it seem crazy to me that we were automatically placed outside. I was most upset with how the situation was handled by the staff and the manager. While I have been to this restaurant before and enjoy the food I think this situation could have been handled much differently.
NIce food, nice service, but so much noise!
This was my second time at Ciccio's / Water. I came here with a friend. We really appreciated the quality of the food and the politeness of our waitress, but we would have totally enjoyed this dinner if the restaurant had not been so noisy! The music was so loud that everyone was trying to cover it yelling at each other. I ended up with a sore throat.
Slam-gria, oatmeal pancakes, guitarist -- WOW!
The Slam-gria, oatmeal pancakes, great food, ambience, and fantastic live guitarist, among others, all made up for the no-coffee/latte available at Sunday Brunch. Surprisingly, their nearby Daily Eats would always have coffee, but Ciccio's Water does not? We ended up ordering hot green tea and hot black tea -- superb tea quality! We left wanting to be back soon... on my next trip.
Food was good service was poor
The food was really good we all got 4 different bowls. When food was given the waiter never brought silverware which was not a big deal but the waiter rarely came over to begin with. My boyfriend finally got up and went to another waitress and asked if he could have silverware and the waitress said yes but did not move. My boyfriend ask if he would like him to grab the silverware himself from the shelves and she replied saying yes. To me that's bizarre. Shortly after my friend realized that she never got her jalapeño sauce which took a good 10 minutes to get. Also we never once got a refill on our drinks.
I went for brunch and ordered pancakes, which come with potatoes. Both were flavorless. Very disappointing. I didn't eat them in fact. The drinks were good though and my friends thought their bowls were just okay. I don't live in Tampa, but if I did I am not sure i'd give this place a try again.
Excellent Food with Matching Ambiance
Our meal was outstanding, as always. The sushi is always so delicious, the flavors are so yummy! I love the spicy mayo on the Veg Out roll. The valet is fast and always attentive/friendly. Our waitress was a little high strong...a little too chatty but otherwise previous service has been excellent. I recommend always making a reservation as well since it seems to get crowded.
