About Grille 54 - Citrus Park
You’ll be amazed when you try one of our entrees from the kitchen. It is an experience that is sure to please. Our Executive Chef Robert Scaffedi has over 10 years in the restaurant industry, including four years here at Grille 54. Many of our recipes come from his Grandmother, Maria, back in Italy. Allow him to prepare you one of his Italian Specialties, such as the Chicken Cordon Bleu, his twist on the Baked Penne, or his signature dish, the Vitello Scaffedi. Not in the mood for Italian? Try our Chilean Seabass, hand-cut in house, or maybe one of our U.S.D.A. Prime Steak selections. We cook everything with oak in our wood-burning grill.

Grille 54 - Citrus Park Ratings and Reviews
While it was expectantly packed for Mother's Day (or any special occasion for that matter) I loved coming here. There was so much to take in upon arrival, the music, the staff scurrying about and families enjoying their time at the restaurant. I particularly enjoyed the omelet and the chef who prepared it!
Family took my mom out for a Mothers Day weekend dinner. She ordered a rib steak medium well. My wife ordered a filet done medium. The temperatures got reversed with the filet medium well but she cut into it and was ok with it. Server asked mom to cut her steak to check temp but left before she could pick up her knife. She tolerated the medium steak as we looked for our server. He was five minutes before checking. Mom ate around the edges. We ordered bread and were told it would take about five minutes. I guess it took all night because it never came.
In both instances the server apologized profusely but offered no corrective action and a manager never stopped by.
very disappointing. I honestly can't say one thing good about the experience except for chef coming to our table to apologize for bad food. And to not have Happy Hour because we were seated in dining room??? seriously? Bad food , dark environment , loud music, just so not fun for our planned celebration .
Food was good, service was very good. It is a bit pricey but it is a nice place. Had a party of 7 ( one did not show up ) . 5 of us had steaks, very good. 1 had chicken parm, said it was good. I had lobster salad, it was okay. Skimpy on the lobster, menu said it was cooked in butter but it was just cold steamed lobster that was good but not what was expected. Salad greens and veggies were good though. We did get the lobster/spinach dip appetizer and it was excellent. Over all we had a good time. 7 of us with dinner, 3 appetizers and 1 alcohol drink each it cost $400. with the tip. And I tipped 20% because she was very good and the rest of the service was really good.
Server was not happy to be there! Overall attitude was poor....rather salty. Did he have too many tables at one time of just not happy that night? Several delays w getting drinks, food, and bread. Sushi was not fresh. Fish was over done. Salad missing from one order.
We been going to Grille 54 a few times now and is always good, i always have a good time, and this time our served Britney MC was marvelous!! we will definitely keep coming back, there is always a time for a good Brunch! the only reason why i didn't put the 5 star on food is because they dint have the arroz con pollo on Sunday!
We were seated immediately and had a very attentive waitress. The wine list was extensive and we found a Malbec from Argentina that we fell in love with! The food was good and nicely plated. The Chicken Piccata was outstanding ! The ambiance was friendly and comfortable. A bit noisy for casual conversation but would be perfect for sports fans and celebrations. We would definitely return for the right occasion.
This place used to be one of my favorite places for weekend brunch, however it seems to have gone downhill a bit. For one thing, the prices have increased to around $35 / per person....so for a family of 4 you are looking at $160 / meal for basically a mediocre buffet at this point.
The selections for the most part haven't changed, and the sushi there is VERY good, however I don't believe I will be returning anytime soon. There are SEVERAL other options in the Tampa area that are MUCH better (both the food and the value for such..). I could see paying $20 / per person at best for this.
For close to the same amount of money you can have a much better experience and way better food at with an ocean view...(i.e. Jackson's in Downtown Riverwalk area, and Oyster Shuckers at the Grand Hyatt...) - both of which are on the water!
I used to go to the one off 54 and the food had always been great and recommended it to everyone, but after that one closed my family and I decided to try the one in tamp and let me say the food was horrible out of all 4 people that was together only 1 of us enjoyed there food. Very bland very oily, the pasta was way over cooked to the point of soggy noodles. Service was mediocre for a slow night. I'm very displeased and hope the next time I come the food will be much more tasteful!
So we chose this place because of the reviews on OpenTable. Definitely overrated.
The inside is way too noisy and uncomfortable. Patio looks nice but is right next to the plaza entrance and the nonstop flow of cars going by your table gets annoying. There a couple other restaurants in the plaza area so too many cars and not enough parking makes cars keep circling until a spot opens. Then there are the smokers on the patio. If you smoke then this is your place.
The food was ok. Nobody in our party loved their food. Nobody hated it, but everyone was just like ehhh.
No complaints about the service. The sever was pleasant and it didn't take too long for the food to come. Overall...Didn't hate the place but prob not ever going back. Too many other good restaurants to enjoy
