Comments : We have been patrons at this establishment several times and always had a decent experience. This last experience was not one of them. Apparently the younger son now owns the place (he's the one with the ponytail). The mother is apparently the head cook, and when we requested a substitution on the appetizer platter we were told it would not be allowed. So we ordered our hummus and falafel. The hummus was warm and bland, no olives available to serve it with. The falafel was good but served with pickles that had no flavor and some anemic tomatoes. But the real problem was the music. It was heavy hip-hop with heavy overtones of offensive language (bitch, nigger, pussy) that really seemed out of place for such a nice restaurant. We called over the manager (the father?) and requested that he put on a less offensive music. He offered jazz and we were fine with that. A couple of jazz songs played and then the same offensive music started again. As we left we asked to speak with the owner and told him how we felt about the music. He flat out told us if we didn't like it there were other bars we could go to, that's what he plays at his restaurant period, it didn't matter how we felt, and dished out various obnoxious rude and shocking insults. It was unbelievable. Obviously we won't be going back.

Don't get me wrong, I love parks and I love being by the water. So Curtis Hixon Park is great and good for activated Downtown with events. But we need more attractions and things to do along the way. Pirate Water Taxi is great addition to Downtown and progress is being made for sure. But more things to do need to be included. There is no reason with Tampa's waterfront can't be as bustling as Baltimore's Inner Harbor! And I agree, this great city needs to keep focus on culture, diversity, arts, theater, beer and music!

Have always been concerned about a city whose evacuation routes are the FIRST streets to flood! Not so much for me and my family, we know the way around, the streets that only go 1 foot deep if we needed to get out. I worry about non-locals who would get inexorably stuck were they to follow the evac routes and end up at Dale Mabry and Neptune or Henderson. Scary.

Comments : I have been going here for years and have loved it every time. I've always had a good time and never had a problem until tonight. To make a long story short there was an altercation between a couple and my sister, I was not present but when I walked out of the bathroom I saw she was on the floor. I explained that this was my sister and i just want to get her off the floor so we can leave, at this time a bouncer put his arm to my throat and pushed me. They continued to man handle us until we left, dragging my sister by her arm. When we exited (no resistance might I add) the same bouncer snatched my arm and ripped my wrist band off. This isn't he first time I've seen a male bouncer man handle a woman at this club but because it happened to me this time I am now speaking up. If you prefer to be disrespected and man handled please go here. If not this may not be the place for you. This is not out of spite, but to save other people from the mistreatment I have received here. I understand these people are here to ensure safety and peace but this is not how this should have been handled. Most of the bouncers were treating us with respect with the exception of two who really abused the little power they had. Please understand no part of this story is fabricated or exaggerated but the whole truth. I am not one to ever write a review on anything but THIS one thing I feel strongly about.
