Piquant Ratings and Reviews

Came here for an early Sunday breakfast with a party of five. Both the food and service were great. Order the Mademoiselle. It is the dish that got us to return to the restaurant since we live in Orlando and cannot visit regularly.

We had a fantastic meal this evening! Our server Sara was so gracious and lovely! The Brussel sprouts were done to perfection and went so well with the organic chicken - I will be ordering an extra side next time we visit!!

Mediocre food but the biggest two factors of my fair to average rating is the service was slow, very slow; they weren't that busy and one of my dishes came out unclean from a wash cycle. Just gross. Won't return ever.
Residing just a few blocks away, Piquant ...
Residing just a few blocks away, Piquant is always a favorite spot to walk to for a cup of coffee, brunch, or a delicious pastry! I consider the restaurant a neighborhood gem, with a lovely outside dining patio that makes it attractive to dog-owners and families with small children, who prefer a less formal environment than the inside space. While I am generally pleased with the service at Piquant, my most recent dining experience proved to be much different, due to the poor customer service that my family and I received. After taking our drink orders and returning with our beverages, I requested a bowl of water for our dog. Not realizing that I had already done so, my partner also asked for a dog bowl and milk for his coffee. The server responded with an inpatient, "I heard her!", and he proceeded to roll his eyes and mumble under his breath. My partner politely replied that he did not realize I had requested the dog bowl, but the server had already walked away. This exchange was not only off-putting, but also unprofessional. From a custom service perspective, raising one's voice to patrons or responding in ways that indicate irritation are highly inappropriate and make all parties uncomfortable! Though we enjoyed our meal, it is unfortunate that the aforementioned exchange adversely impacted our experience at Piquant.

We made a reservation online at 9PM - got a call 10 min before out reservation saying that they close at 9 and we couldn't eat there. After being slightly upset with the host, they were willing to seat us.
They put together a table right in the front where people were passing us and was uncomfortable to sit there...it was weird as the restaurant was practically empty at that hour. It then took 45min to order our food and all I asked for was soup and mac n cheese. Not sure why it took so long...the mac n cheese was also slightly cold...not happy with this place...last time I eat there.
Didn't seem like anyone cared that much to make sure we had a good meal and enjoyed our time there. I left in a bad mood and would of rather eaten somewhere else.

Overpriced and the service was lacking. We would have ordered another round of (very strong) drinks but the waitress didn't come back for quiet some time. I had the duck & waffles, which was good, but the waffle was cold - i don't know if they intended to serve it cold.
We won't be going back, there's a million other places that are not nearly as prices and have way better service!

Disappointing... for an almost empty restaurant at dinner time on a Friday service was extremely slow. They were Out of most of the desserts and quite a few dishes even though we had an early 6:30 reservation ( don't they keep things in stock?). Duck and waffles served without any sense of presentation- could have been at Denny's getting a chicken and waffles. The egg for the burger was left off. Truffle fries were good. Given the variety of options to eat in Hyde Park we will be finding a new go to place. Not good value for money.

-Saturday at 8pm. Restaurant was half empty, but we still had to wait for the waiter.
-Ordered a Gin & Tonic before the meal; the G&T was terrible (water instead of tonic?)
We had only had one sip of the drink when the starter arrived way too soon
The main course was supposed to be inspired by French cuisine, but was NOT
Not a good dining experience at all

1st time here. Very disappointed in the service. Food was just ok. Server acted like she didn't want to be there. Barista was too busy chit chatting to make our drinks. We ordered coffee/tea before ordering the meal but didn't get the drinks until we were already done eating. Won't be recommending this place to anyone, anytime soon.

Going to Piquant is always a great experience. This was a friends' get-together for brunch on a Labor Day.
The place had both breakfast and lunch options, so everyone was pleased with the offered food options.
The food is always delicious as well as their tea selection.
The service was great overall, even though we were waiting for a check a little longer than wanted.

I ate here for breakfast with my friend yesterday. We had a nice time. The atmosphere was quiet and calm. Love the French inspired music. Good customer service. And my breakfast was delicious. I have to go again to try the many choices of dessert they had available.

Our food was OK, but not spectacular. Did not care for the 'infused iced tea" and would have preferred regular brewed iced tea. Very loud and lots of children at lunchtime. We were fortunate that our table was away from the largest part of the restaurant.

My wife and I have been described as foodies by friends who come to us for restaurant recommendations. This is definitely a place we would recommend to friends. We will surely return to try other items on the menu as well.
We started with the Boules De Fromage and the Chorizo and Goat Cheese flatbread. Both were exceptional items and would be great to share with a group of friends.
For our entrees, I had the Croque Madam and my wife had the Adult Grilled Cheese with Bacon. Both were easily the best version of these sandwiches we have ever tried.
The dessert selections are endless, and after going overboard with appetizers and entrees, we decided to take dessert to go. The desserts made for a great end to the evening.
This place is worth the drive from St Pete for a Friday Night Date, or any reason you can come up with.

I believe this is a brunch restaurant primarily. Looking at their online menu, however, had my mouth watering with the delicious possibilities. Unfortunately, when we arrived we found that in reality the menu has been reduced and some of the exciting entrees which brought us to the restaurant for dinner are no longer available. The martinis were small, and the premium price for serving them "up" was a real turnoff. I had a blue cheese burger, which was excellent, and the truffled fries were tasty and crispy. The broiled oysters were also excellent. It's just that I really wanted the short ribs. Listen up! You need to change your online menu!! Customers actually look at these things nowadays. To cap off the dinner, I ordered a dessert which the server suggested, then she came back and apologized, as it was no longer available.
Excellent meal, one of the items on the ...
Excellent meal, one of the items on the menu wasn't 'available' but our waiter offered an alternative dish, and some other suggestions which all turned out wonderfully. Good service, attentive but not over bearing and the chef came out to meet with us. All in all a great place, we look forward to going back the next time we are in Tampa, will also go for breakfast/brunch as their selections looks great.
