It took over 3 hours for our party of 6 to have dinner, but most of the time we were just sitting there looking around for our waiter while nursing our drinks, because we didn't know how long it would take to get another. Took at least 15 minutes after we were seated to even have our drink order taken, then another 15 minutes or more to receive the drinks........it goes on and on like this. The check for me and my boyfriend was $130, including the 20% I regretted leaving. This was my first time at Anise and I was so disappointed, because I had been looking forward to trying it for a long time. There were plenty of staff with a lot of empty tables, no excuse at all.
WOOHOO Clementine! Feeding our family when this Mama is just too tired! Love you guys!
Can't wait Brian and Misty rock.
Well written and interesting review.
This place sucker on so many levels
Please check out Lee's Grocery on Central in Tampa for your future profile on pizza!
Wholly Smokes on North Armenia is worth a mention. as well as Ice Cream's turkey legs on north 22nd I believe.
"Chris Sherman predicts more (and better) vegetarian and vegan options"
let's hope so
I love this place! My favorite dinner starts off with a squid salad and merlot, leading into a rainbow roll and dragon roll. Occasionally, I'll opt for a spicy tuna salad with a bowl of rice and an arizona roll if I want to have that nice, satisfying meal with a touch of lightness to it. Goes great paired with some wine. I highly recommend this restaurant!
did you write the caption: The restaurant's got a wine cellar in one of its private dining rooms. ? That's some educated syntax right there.
Everyone has their palletes, but your review marks a lot of the dishes as one-dimensional, whereas your dining companions enjoyed their dining experience much more ("cleaning their plates"). Not sure what to make of this review, so I'll be checking out this place on my own.
Don is an outstanding chef and a wonderful person! What a great combo for St Pete...Locale Market and Don Pintabona <3
Don Pintabona is an amazing chef! I had the pleasure of dining in his restaurant in New York. Not only did St Pete gain an incredible chef, but also a wonderful man!! Bravo!!!
sometimes a place is about more than the food. It's a comfortable vibe and the esteem they've built by serving their community. But you wouldn't know about that visiting a place cold. I enjoy Charlie's sushi and will be there next week with a large group.
This was always my experience when visiting this place which is why I have marked it off my list.
An interesting take on a story I've heard many times before. It's nice to finally hear this version.
interesting review.... a bit one dimensional i might add.... never been to this particular rest.. but after a quick tour of your reviews and my experience with the same places, i will definitely check it out on my own.... merely observing.
Spot on description of most every sushi place I've been to in town over the past 10 years.
Nooooo! Don't go!!!!!!
This is really a shame. The food is great, but the location just isn't super inviting, and the name always seemed off-putting to me - you need a reservation, but you can't eat here?
Anyway, I'm going to go get a Buffalo Chicken sub . . .
