Although I very much enjoyed my meal at Tropica, it seemed to take forever for everything. My reservation for 2 was during lunch and it seemed that because I was literally 2 minutes late, the hostess felt the need to seat every party

at tropica, the food is fresh and presented carefully and without unnecessary fuss. both of the seared tuna dishes are delicious and each has a subtle asian flavor that heightens the freshness of the fish. the ambience is casual but

Pros: pretty good food

Cons: , $$$$ for bad service

Not worth going to unless you are on an expense account... the food was mediocre for the prices they charged. They try to go asian fusion a bit to make it trendy but you might as well get some real asian food for less than 1/2 the price.

The food quality at this place is not as exciting as they would like to think. The service was pleasant, the bread was good, as was the wine. It all comes down to the food at a restaurant, right? This place was just a touch above average.

My first visit to Tropica was sensational. Food was excellently prepared and delicious and the prices were very reasonable. The Key Lime Pie with Palm Tree cookie was the best I've ever eaten. Even beats the one in Key West. Would
