Ciro's Speakeasy and Supper Club Ratings and Reviews

This place is great for happy hour! Unfortunately on this night there was a terrible odor coming from the building next door. Not something they can control and we overlooked it because we still love Ciros. What we cannot overlook is poor service. Our waiter was impossible to locate and made multiple comments about being at the place all day/lived at the restaurant. I'm not attending to hear woe is me stories. Will still return but hopefully better service next time

They definitely keep the prohibition theme alive! Awesome place to live in some of the past. It was all perfect from the staff, to the drinks and the password to get it. Made for a great experience! They do have a 2 hour time limit per table because it is so small. I'd say there's 15 tables tops. Well worth it!

The smell when entering Ciros was enough to scare us away from eating anything there. Upon entering you we were hit with a strong smell of sewage, it was awful. We had one cocktail, and left. The couple seated next to us were incredibly noisy, an the curtain between the two tables did not block much of the noise. Ciros has been on my list of things to do for a long time, that as well as being in the hospitality industry, i was really looking forward to the experience.

We celebrated my wife's 70th Birthday here on 11/09.
We had a great experience with Mathew at the bar and Garrett our water.
Great food, unusual but very good drinks front the bar.
I highly recommend Ciro's Speakeasy.

My wife and I went for our 1st year anniversary, this place was recommended by my daughter. This place send you back in time, it was so beautiful, my wife was in tears... love the bartender.. and yes. You have to knock..on the door.. and they do ask you for the password.. I did not have one, because I booked it through open table... ...... please go and experience . you will be thrilled.

I loved this experience. It was much more than I expected. The staff was professional, polished and outgoing/friendly. It had very nice balance- not stuffy at all. It was great to do something different with my guy and it was worth the price. (I paid, it was my treat this time) But- to mention the price.. you get what you pay for. It can be pricey. Ambiance, class and interesting drinks and food. Be sure to be prepared for the evening. Dress appropriate- this is not a tiki bar. And be prepared to send some $$$.
Which many of us do on special occasions. I couldn't afford to come here weekly and do the entire drink, apps, meal, drinks...,
However, I could gojust to the bar and enjoy a cocktail before I head out on the town on other types of nights.. but you would need to call first and get the password and make those arrangements.
I highly recommend this for ANYONE looking for a place to bring their special someone for a romantic night out.. or for a double date. It is NOT a child's place.. so it was great to hear no screaming kids. If you bring a group.. they will put in in a larger private room.. everyone has their own private space with curtains. I'd suggest.. agree ahead of time to split the bill evenly no matter who has what.. and everyone will enjoy!

This is our second time at this restaurant. The drinks are prepared with a lot of care and attention to detail and they show it. The waiter had some great suggestions for the entire party regarding drinks and food and was very attentive. The ambiance is great, very mellow and perfect for small to midsize groups. We had a private area for six people and fit very comfortably. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The cocktails we had were outstanding. Dinner was even better. Very fun atmosphere. They tell you in advance that you have a two hour minimum at the table, and they are true to their word as they asked us to wrap things up at about an hour and 45 min in. Which we didn't mind, but something to keep in mind. Awesome experience.

Ciros is absolutely wonderful! The staff is friendly and the food is satisfying. I highly recommend their handcrafted cocktails, they are worth every penny! The scallops have been my favorite recently and the fondu is nice for date night. Reserve a table in advance for a more intimate evening.

Very romantic, excellent cocktails served by very educated servers who take time to steer you in the right direction. This place is my special occasion place to go with friends or just my hubby. It has never disappointed.

Pretty simple. Great drinks. Great service. Great food. Great ambience. It's not the cheapest place in Tampa but for a special evening or date night it's a great place. Although I'm sure it would also be pretty sweet just going to the bar for drinks and snacks. Even if the food were half as good, and the drinks half as bad, I'd still go for the service. And it's different. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different who loves a good cocktail.

The ambiance was great, it was fun to find the restaurant. The steak tartare was amazing, but I could have done without the tempura oysters on the side and would prefer more tartare! The burger was also amazing- one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. The octopus had potential but the meat itself was fishy and a bit off- in general the seafood is so-so and I would steer clear of it here next time and stick to good ol' meat fare. The cocktails were lovely, the house specialties were creative and tasty. Would definitely recommend to anyone and return. Please observe the dress code, it adds a nice touch to the evening.

Went here at first just to the bar and the bartender was attentive and funny. Definitely made our night. The 2nd visit was for a first date. The privacy and intimacy was memorable and romantic. Great music, plush pillows, gauze curtains and candle light made the evening on my booth even better. Waiters were attentive without being intrusive and the drinks were very good. I don't think would have noticed if my date went bad because I was so in love with the experience Iwas going through at Ciro's
My take on Ciro's can be summarized as " ...
My take on Ciro's can be summarized as "Disney (as in Epcot) meets New Orleans", meaning it was good and a reasonable facsimile of a New Orleans/French Quarter early 20th Century bar/speakeasy. Go if you've never been to New Orleans, particularly the Old Absinthe House or some of the older, historical restaurants like Arnaud's or Antoine's. If you've been to NOLA (or are a native as I am), still - go - it is fun - but it will leave you somewhat dismayed in that it falls short. Here are the good points: decor is great; love the dark tones, brick walls, leather, jazz music playing - the atmosphere is authentic and intriguing. The food ranged from excellent (the burger and duck fries) to OK (the chicken and waffles - beer battered chicken is a no-no); the drinks were very good. The Sazerac was authentic New Orleans; the Pernod Absinthe was prepared table-side and delicious. Check was reasonable for 1 app, 2 entrees, and 4 drinks for my wife and me (about $115). Here are the areas where they could improve: the password thing is cool - but having the 2 hour seating MAX is a turn-off and, when combined with the password/decor and slightly above average food, it makes the experience seem like a theme park (a la Epcot). We arrived just after 7 for a 2-hour block (7-9 pm). We had requested a booth (they are great!!) and got it, but the previous party had't left...no big deal as we were seated around 7:30. When we asked if we still had 2 hours, the hostess said the blocks were for 2 hours, so... Seriously? Now, 2 hours would likely be enough for anyone, us included; however, the time limitation (which they chose to enforce) again made it seem like a Disney attraction. In fact, the party in the booth next to us arrived at 7:45 and were encouraged to get a move on with dinner orders as they only had an hour and15 minutes...The food, while OK, needs some work. The tartar and oyster desperately needed seasoning (sadly, there is no salt or pepper provided).

It's a nice place for a drink, but when you have 4 people sitting at a very small table it becomes impossible to have any food. There is absolutely no room on a pub table for 4 cocktails, 4 water glasses and 4 plates AND the food. Ridiculous.

The experience is pretty awesome. Receiving the phone call with the password and the secretive entrance is pretty awesome. However, I had to give this place 4 stars instead of 5. The food we had was execellent. We started with Oysters and Duck Fat fries (Do not skip on these as they were the highlight of the night)!!!! As entrees we shared the strip steak and crab cakes which were equally delicious. The tables are small; however, they were small during prohibition so I understand the complaints but I really thought it added to the experience and did not have a negative impact for our evening. There are a few issues that management should address. First, the bathrooms are pretty disgusting. Second, you read all these house rules about how men should dress etc. and how you should "speakeasy." There was a table of 7 people across from us that were literally screaming. I was at Ciros for my boyfriends birthday and this ruined the romantic, quite, and dimly lit evening we were looking to enjoy. If management cracked down on a few items and strictly enforced their own rules, this would be one of Tampa's best restaurants.

I went to Ciro's expecting it to be a fun experience mainly focused on the authentic speakeasy vibe and classic and creative cocktails. The ambience and cocktails certainly didn't disappoint. I was really pleasantly surprised to find that the food was also great. I'd highly recommend this for a fun evening. The only detractor is that the seating was uncomfortable. I'll happily go back though.

Drinks amazing as usual, truly the best drinks I've ever had. Very, very crowded for being such a small place which made it so hot and a bit uncomfortable... suggestion is to book a booth (the ones with the curtain) away from the bar. They let people stand by the bar area and it's just overly crowded for such a small place. Other than that, great atmosphere and drinks.

Very different from a regular restaurant, something new and fun me and my boyfriend have been wanting to do. It really lived up to our expectations and our server (I want to say Garret) was awesome, he really gave us a personality instead of an employee.
