One of my all time favorite places to eat. Elegant, romantic and overall amazing dishes. Call ahead and request a window table to watch the sunset. Its a little pricey but so worth it.

I went to this restaurant a few months ago for a family function. I cannot say enough great things about the service and staff. The view is amazing as well. The food is pricy but you get what you pay for! Best dining experience I've

It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!

I ate at Armani's last night and it was the best meal I had in a long time. The food was superb and full of surprises. I ordered the seabass and the server poured the sauce at the table (nice touch) Everything we consumed was of the highest quality and it sure rectifies the prices charged. My wife had the lamb and again, this dish has also a surprise element build in. (The sauce comes in a french press and is pressed at your table!) I have been living here in Tampa over 8 years and this restaurant used to have a boring and overwelming menu. Now it is exciting, tasty and of the highest quality ingredients. I was most impressed by their new bread and olive oil presentation. You start your meal with stunning olive oil and aged balsamic vingar. They also hand out small chunks of real parmesano reggiano! To die for, I could have just had this all night. Leave yourself some room for dessert though, because the blueberry goat cheese strudel is stellar. If the service wouldn't be so stuffy, I would go more often.

This used to be one of the best but I really think this place is over rated. The food was not good, service was very slow and it was too presumptious as well as stuffy. Oystercatchers is definitely giving this place a run for their money. They might want to think about renovating or making changes here as well to keep up with the new demands.

Our first experience there was 6 years ago and it was great...
So when our 5th wedding anniversary came this was our place of choice...
We were very very disappointing... Obviously the chef had changed, and so has the menu. The dishes offered are very common and unrefined. Gone is the fine dining experience, honestly the food was just as good at Macaroni Grill, and I am not exagerating. Have I also mentioned that I got sick within 20 minutes of leaving the restaurant? The dress code that was once enforced seems to have faded away...
Overall, it was an overpriced version of a mediocre Italian restaurant!!!

We went to Armani's yesterday and were told they have a new chef and brand new menu. We were very pleased with both the food and location and if our experience is any indication, this restaurant deserves every star it has! As other reviews have noted, the level of service is very high. The cuisine was very contemporary and classic at the same time, and there seemed to be attention to detail for everything on the plate. We can't wait to go back and try more! This is a great place for a romantic evening, especially if you are a foodie.

We like dining early and arrived a little before 6pm. This was our 3rd visit to Armani's in a number of years and, quite frankly, I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the Armani reviews the evening before as the reviews did not express what I remember from before. Once we arrived, we were invited to be seated in the lounge to watch the sunset. Having heard good comments about the terrace, we asked about it. We were then invited to the terrace. I especially enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, as we were the ONLY ones on the terrace. We took many photographs of a WONDERFUL sunset and then went back in to see if one of the servers would take our photograph together. Qasim eagerly accepted and took a lovely photo. In fact, after taking one, he asked if he could take another, as he was not satisfied with the first one he took. We figured we should tip him for his efforts and he refused our tip. We found this rather astounding after reading reviews about greedy servers. We decided to ask the Maitre D to seat us with Qasim. We were not disappointed. Armani?s was exactly as we remember it. At the end of our meal Qasim presented us with two lovely chocolate covered strawberries that looked like little tuxedos ? Happy Anniversary was written across the plate. They were not only beautiful but also delicious. We found this to be a special treat. This is not something to be seen most anywhere. We have always enjoyed dining at Armani?s and consider it a special treat. Yes, it is exceptionally pricey but it is rated the number one restaurant in the Tampa Bay area and I am sure their rent is rather high, located on the top floor of the Hyatt with one of the best views in the Tampa Bay area. It is important to factor in location and rent as part of the operating expenses of the restaurant when comparing entree pricing. We both have birthdays coming up and will consider revisiting Armani's. Should we revisit, we will be sure to ask for Qasim Khan.

Pros: View, Service, Food

Suprisingly the rates on meals were not so $$$$ like everyone said. They were comparable to any other fine dining resturant I have been. Your looking at about 30-60 dollars a plate. The food was excellent as would be expected for the price being paid. If you are going on a business dinner it would be a great place. But, however, the layout is somewhat a square with the couples sitting in the middle and the parties around the outside. So the light conversations of a romantic evening are disrupted by the noisy parties which are also partially blocking the beautiful views of the harbor. So for a romantic evening I highly advise going somewhere else.

I took my wife here for her birthday. Everything was fabulous. Great meal, great drinks and drink selection. Excellent service. The view all around is spectacular, and you can't miss the antipasta bar! I will be back for sure.

My Fiance and I still can't get over Armani's. We love great food and service, Armani's goes way beyond.We arrived and were met with warmth and character. The wait staff are seasoned veterans, most have been in Armani's for ten or more years.Our Captain's been at Armani's for 19 years. The food was phenomanal in flavor and flair. Beautiful presentations were surpassed by unique, delectable ingrediants. I still taste the Ossobuco. My fiance had the Chef's Special Dover Sole....unbelievable!!! The spectacular view, succulent cusine and incomparable service are all brought together in a romantic setting. Every detail from anniv. cards to black napkins adds another accent. The couple next to us celebrated their 50th anniv. with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, they've been coming here for the past 10 years. We just can't wait to go back! We have to say that Armani's is nothing less than Perfect!

Armani's to me is the best dinning restaurant around. I myself am a traveler and I have had many different kinds of foods from all around the continental U.S.! Armani's is situated on the 15th floor of the amazing Hyatt hotel overlooking the beautiful waters of Florida. The best scenery is at night outside on the balcony which fits about 100 people comfortably. The menu served ranges from fish to chicken to steaks and much more. From tossed, house and ceasar salads all mixed together with just the right blends of sauces and flavorings. Not only is Armani's exceptional with its food quality/quantity, it also has a piano style bar in the front open til the early hours of the morning. I would definitely say Armani's was a great find!

One of the best restaurant with great food and very romantic. BUT the sevice.. i dont know about that.. the waiters try to increase your bill instead of trying to help you out with it.. I know you want to tip them but I would not give them more then 15% because they don't deserve it. They are aroud lot of $$ and it gets to their head. Then need to treat every customer the same weather they are spending $400 or $4000.

My husband took me to Armani's last year for my birthday. The view was wonderful, as was the food. The problem came when an oblivious waiter spilled soup all over my husbands suit. We were not finished with our meal so he had to sit in "wet" clothes. A meager apology from the manager, the dry cleaning bill paid, but that was it...no follow up phone calls, nothing. We had rented a limo for an evening on the town, but instead had to call the evening short. If this is how Armanis treats their guests, I will gladly take my business elsewhere.

The waitstaff greets you dressed formally. From the time they serve you water, which is bottled, to the dessert which is elegantly displayed, you can lose yourself in romance. The food is just as tasty as it is elegantly prepared. We received a follow up phone call the next day to inquire about our dining experience. It was a remarkable place to spend and anniversary!

My husband and I went to Armani's for our 2 year wedding anniversary. The staff was incredible and we were given the royal treatment. The chef prepared my special request BEAUTIFULLY and the sunset over Tampa Bay added just the right touch. Very pricy, but what would one expect at such a high end establishment. DEFINITELY would recommend!

I was proposed to at Armani's, I have eaten there on a number of occasions, and each time the most romantic thing was my husband, not the restuatant. The food is what would be expected at an overpriced, I just want to be seen, restuarant. So, if you want to be seen, Armani's is a great choice. You may even catch a celeb there, I have.

I was very put off on my last visit by our server's obvious attempts to get our bill as high as possible. Most offensive was his suggestion that my wife and I split an appetizer plate and then charged us an $11.95 per person price for the single plate. The appetizer bar was great, but the money-grubbing left a bad taste. Average dinner for two runs about $150.00 - $200.00.

Armani's dazzles many people with the view, which is impressive for Tampa, but the food falls short of Donatello and Caffe' Paradiso, as does the service and ambience. The antipasta bar, while it seems awesome, lacks quality items. The calamari were VERY tough on 3 occasions. The salads were decent, not the best. Entrees and pastas were decent, though not the best. The service is decent, but part of a fine Italian restaurant is being served by staff that know, understand, and appreciate the Italian language, culture, and cuisine. Here, many can't pronounce, let alone describe an item or properly guide a customer. It's gussied up hotel fare with a great view. For a genuine experience, try the D or CP.

For all its ambience and luxurious style, Armani's also makes itself accessible. Guests can always order from the menu, or create their own appetizer from the antipasto display. Located on the 14th floor of the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, theā€¦
