    Entrees are mostly delicious. Like any place, there are some that are better for others, or some that cater more to certain palates. Regardless, this is a great place to go have some authentic Spanish (from Spain) food. Excellent service!

    Food was good, service was nice with a friendly waitress however some cheese and charcuteria was served at our table when we had not ordered it, and my friend thought it was complimentary, but it showed up in the bill and of course we paid for it. The food was good but overpriced. The guitar music was too loud even though the two players tried to adjust the sound for quite awhile. I would give this restaurant another chance and perhaps ask the next time about the food that wasn’t ordered since there is nothing for nothing!!!

    We had a reservation ( for 4 people) but the only table in the main room seated 8. Instead we were seated in a back room which was fine with us since we could talk but others might feel ostracized. Service was very good, food was well prepared and there’s a nice wine list. We will return.

    I have eaten many times at the location on Dale Mabry. I had not visited the new location, although I pass by it as it is near my house. I was extremely pleased the quality remains its high standard. Service was great and food delicious. Ate with young kids and we enjoyed our Friday night dinner. We will be back!

    I believe the food was decent, we happened to go on a night in which the kitchen was extremely backed up, likely due to some very large parties. Our server was pleasant, overall the experience would have been better had we not had to wait so long between our tapas being served. We will try again as it is really close to our house.

    Our food was served 2 hours after we sat down. Nothing was done to rectify the experience or to persuade us to come back. The food was just ok. Although we do not enjoy leaving poor reviews, this is not a place we would go back to.

    Went to celebrate a birthday dinner with some good friends and we had an enjoyable time! We purchased multiple variety of tapas - and shared some delicious menu items. Every tapa plate was exceptional and tasty! We got so full on the tapas, never got to the main entrees! Wait staff and hosts were very attentive and friendly. The restaurant dining area is a bit cramped but somehow they make it work - atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxing. Great place and will be back soon!

    By far some of the best food in Tampa. Have loved the Executive Chef / owner's culinary flair since he had Le Maisòn Basque over 20 years ago. He's no longer in the kitchen on a daily basis, but his Head Chef, Sous Chef and Chefs de Partie do a wonderful job of maintaining the quality and consistency so important in a great restaurant. Sad to say that service was lacking to say the least. Waitress was certainly pleasant, but not very attentive. Very long night, and it wasn't as if we were impatient or in a rush. We sat upstairs toward the back so we wouldn't be real close to the fabulous band that was playing... so ambience was very nice. Waitress didn't bother to write down our tapas orders and there was a mix up as a result. How Veal Sweetbreads were confused with our order of Muscles is beyond me. She did leave the Sweetbreads for us on the house, which was nice and I've got to say they were really delicious. She forgot all about the salad I ordered, until I told her to just skip it. The rest of the evening we waited and waited and waited. Shouldn't have to ask for: refills on water; complimentary bread; where our main course was after a half hour just sitting there; the check please. Needless to say... she didn't ask if we wanted desert nor did we want to stay any longer. We'll be back to give this new location another shot. Perhaps better service downstairs. Would have rated 5 stars if service matched the quality of the food.

    We really enjoyed the restaurant, great happy hour menu, good tapas selection and the food was delicious! Our server was excellent, she was very attentive and she was always available, our food was served quickly, well presented & prepared. My only issue, and this is the same regardless of what restaurant is in this building, it is choppy floor plan and the upstairs area isn’t well laid out all. Not to mention, very poor acoustics upstairs. But there was an amazing duo playing this night and they definitely made up a very loud large party seated behind our table.

    We arrived early for our reservation, were seated immediately, and enjoyed the attention of a young server for the rest of our mealtime. My cocktail (besame mucho) was promptly served and delicious. The calamari was done perfectly. The bread came with an interesting admixture of oil and sauces. The food was delicious, though my sole was totally buried in sauce. The noise level was so low that quiet conversation was enjoyed. The decor was understated with muted colors and linear abstracts by Picasso for wall art. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will return.

    Went to restaurant with another couple for Valentine’s Day. It was out of the way for us, but the menu looked good. When we got there they told us there was a special menu for that day and nothing could be ordered from regular menu. Paella was ordered, shrimp were mealy, no fish (as was stated on menu),:rice was watered down and tasteless. Lamb chops were severely over cooked and sent back as was the paella. Service was bad. Had to try to flag a waiter as he went by to get his attention. No one came to table to see if we needed more drinks, etc. server was rude when he did get to table. Table next to us turned over three times while we were there. Never go back to this restaurant and definitely will not recommend.

    I know it’s at a new location so there obviously was a lot of training going on with people walking around aimlessly. We had a 5pm reservation and when I looked at the website they said they had an early bird menu. I don’t usually do early bird but it was the only time my group could meet. After sitting for a few minutes even though no other customers were there we asked to be seated. We were seated in the main dining room where we sat for at least 10 minutes until we finally waved someone over to our table. There was still lots of employees walking around. We asked to see the early bird menu but was told that we could only get it if we moved to the adjacent bar a few feet away or to go upstairs to the bar and tables up there. This just hit me the wrong way. We were in an empty restaurant , were already seated with my 87 yr old mother and was told we could not order from the early bird special because we were not in the exact right room? This to me was preposterous! Either have it or not. Not really smart business. The food was very good. The waiter we knew from N Tampa and he was very good and cordial. Before we left I went to the restroom and when I came back my water glass had a spider swimming in it. I called the waiter and showed it to him just to let him know. He left we left but it was just overall annoying that there was no apology about a spider swimming around in my water glass. The ceiling is wood and he must have dropped down so beware.

    The food at Viscaya is amazing!! I am not a big fish lover but the three times I have been there and taken several bites from my hubbies order of fish it’s amazing. It’s fresh , flavorful, light .. perfect . If only I could make a fish dish like their chef my family would be so happy and healthy!

    I was a fan when they were in Carrollwood. The menu is similar but the facilities are much more upscale in the new place. Food and service are still great. Prices are similar (they've never been inexpensive). The street is quite busy so getting in and out can be challenging. Still my favorite in Tampa for tapas.

    Many of us are thrilled to see Vizcaya come to South Tampa. I often dined at the original location, and really enjoy the variety of tapas choices. The seafood entrees are fantastic, too ! My last visit was good-- delicious food and good service. I was quite surprised, however, with the VERY slow pace of the kitchen- I appreciate it when I am not rushed with my meal, but this was the opposite. I have not encountered this on any other prior visit. I trust the pacing of service will improve as the staff becomes accustomed to their new place.

    I visited Vizcaya at the Carrollwood location many times in the past and just dined at the new location on West Shore Blvd with a friend who had never been there. We were more than satisfied with the food, ambiance and service! I was hoping that a change of location would not change the quality of the food but it was not the case as they still have the same great chef! One of the best Spanish restaurants in Tampa Bay and can't wait to go back again!
