Grille One Sixteen - South Tampa Ratings and Reviews

The service and the dessert was excellent...the rest of the meal was boring. My wife ordered a drink and after taking a sip she didn't like it. Most restaurants would take it off the bill this one didn't (whatever). She wanted to order an apple martini instead but they didn't have the ingredients to make it. My steak was ok, wife had the salmon which was dry. Would only really come back for the dessert which was amazing.

I love this restaurant but was disappointed that it was my wife's birthday and they didn't do anything special for her. I told them twice it was her birthday. I thought maybe she would get a free dessert or something.

First time visit to this local restaurant. General manage came to visit. Waiter was s little timid but was very attentive. The food was good, but a little more bland then expected. I would return, but hope the choice is better. Salad was good. Overall I wood return. Much better then most.

We booked this reservation through Open Table for a birthday dinner. Unfortunately, when we made the reservations we were not advised that there was a "special" event Happy Hour taking place at the same time. Unfortunately, we could not hear each other talk. Not a single word unless we yelled it really loud to each other. It was not a good experience at all. I mean it looked like a great Happy Hour event, unfortunately, we were there just to celebrate birthdays and enjoy a nice meal and catch up with each other. We were unable to do so. We left early because it was just impossible to hear each other over the Happy Hour crowd.

Our server Connor was great. Very patient and answered all of our questions patiently. Food was great, Mojitos awesome.
I just had mojitos and donuts so I was thrilled, but everyone else loved their food. It was my first time there and I loved it.

This was my second visit and I really enjoyed it. It has not been really busy either time that I have been here and I don't understand why. It is a beautiful restaurant, very modern decor. The food and service has been excellent on both occasions. Dan has waited on us both times and he does a fabulous job. I had the Surf and Turf with the Chilean Sea Bass and the Small filet with mushrooms. They were both excellent and the steak was cooked perfectly. I would definitely recommend it to others and will be back again for sure.

This was my second time dining at Grille One Sixteen - the first time was for dinner and this time was for lunch on Father's Day. The menu was a bit limited for lunch, and our food arrived slightly warm, not hot.
We started out with the seviche, which was good but not great. I had the meatloaf, which as ok.
Our previous dining experience was much better.
The service was attentive & good.
Grille One Sixteen is consistently outstanding. The menu features elevated American Contemporary fare complemented by an excellent wine selection, hand-crafted cocktails, and other premium spirits, all served in a chic but comfortable atmosphere with a "metropolitan" feel. The servers are friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Grille 116 has become my favorite spot for a happy hour or late-night drink and personal and business lunches and dinners.
Good, not great.
Overall, my experience was good enough. Their calamari appetizer included a lot of calamari (enough for 3 or 4 people) and was some of the best I've ever had. Their salted caramel cheesecake was also deeeelicious and was big enough for me to eat half there and half at home; however, I tend to eat small portions. I had the sirloin dinner for an entree and it literally tasted like it was soaked in salt for. . . 10 years. It was so TERRIBLE! My palette was traumatized for the entire day. It was so so so bad, I just cringed remembering the taste. Oh, I also had their "famous" doughnuts which were mediocre, very mediocre. The waitress was pretty underwhelming, but she did her job. It was my birthday and she didn't seem to be interested in that fun tidbit at all. She did, however, put a candle in my dessert (which I asked for). I would probably go back and would definitely recommend it to others. It's very chic!
My favorite restaurant in Tampa! We dine here every time we come to Tampa to visit our sons living here. Great bartenders -- love the cocktails. Appetizers and main course of salmon were prepared to perfection! The donuts for dessert are a MUST! The waitstaff is always fun and friendly!
We had a party of 7 booked on a Saturday evening without much lead time. We got a warm welcome, friendly team service and a great experience. The restaurant has 4 distinct areas: a long row of semi-orivate, apholstered booths, a regular dining area, a bar area with some high top tables, and a private room (looks like another is being added). So when it filled up, it got fairly noisy, but I would call it more like vibrant. The food was really good. We had an order of Nueske bacon as an appetizer... unusual offering, but really tasty. Also tried calamari, which came with a tasy aoli. Everyone loved their entrees, and the shrimp & pasta got passed around and got lots of oohs and ahhs. The wine list was nice and reasonably priced for a restaurant. We went for two orders of the donut desert. Each order was four hot donuts galzed with white choclate, carame, berry and chocolate. Tasted like a kicked up beignet, yummy. We will return if in the area, as this one is a keeper.
Love the ultra modern decor!
Well other than the fact that the entrance is hard to find, it was fabulous. The door is on the West side and the only way you notice it is the long silver door handle. They told us many people are stumped the first time they come in. We went here for my Birthday and everything was wonderful. The food was delicious. I had the Shrimp Pasta, my sister had the Tempura Lobster tails and another friend had the Chilean Sea Bass. We were all very please with the food and the service. We will definitely be back and introducing it to other friends.

Superb service and excellent mixologist.
This is the only place in Tampa that cooks meats and fish to their proper requested temperature -- and this includes Berns, Capitol Grill, Del Frisco, and for fish, Eddie Vs, Osytercatchers, etc.

I'm sad that I don't recall our Servers name, but he was very pleasant, personable, helpful and added to the overall wonderful experience we had. I truly enjoyed myself as did the rest of my party. We also appreciated that the chef provided complimentary appetizer to our group. 5 Stars!
We often wonder why we don't return here more often. The food is always excellent and they make excellent drinks. The overall ambience is elegant and somewhat exotic as the interior has always been memorable. At one point in an effort to be truly droll they had illuminated menus as the interior was quite dark. Fine if you were engaging in a tryst, but problematic otherwise. We'll be back...maybe this time sooner than later.
