Very slow service - took 30 minutes to get a water, over an hour to get food, and 15 mins to get the check.
Food was messy - Half of my lettuce was wilted, the grilled shrimp wasn't grilled, and some of our bread had little bits of slimy stuff stuck on it (I'm hoping it was cheese).
On the plus side, the setting is really nice and the food options were interesting.
The taste does not live up to the price.
I ordered the fajita chicken burrito and the guacamole as an appetizer. Both were ok, but nothing special. Chipotle is twice as good for half the price, and it tastes fresher too.
On the plus side, the table-side guacamole making was neat, and the overall ambiance is nice.
I did some research on their conversion from IMAX to "Sony Giant Screen".
[TLDR: It's a full-size IMAX screen with a Sony projector that gets the job done. It may not be "IMAX Quality" but if you just want the giant screen you'll be satisfied. AMC IMAX is fake normal size screens.]
Channelside is not IMAX anymore, they prolly converted because Sony digital offers a better 3d system. With IMAX you can't move your ahead without the 3d suffering, Sony's is more robust.
However, they still have the biggest screen in Tampa at 70'. The AMC's "IMAX" screens (Veterans and Regency) are half the size - it's only an IMAX projector. IMAX sold-out, their trademark doesn't mean giant screen anymore.
Sony does make projectors that are rated well on 70' screens, so the image doesn't suffer much.
If you want good quality on a huge screen - the Giant Screen will suffice.
If you want 3d on a IMAX screen - definitely come here.
If you want the full IMAX experience, you have to go to St. Pete (62' screen).
Don't go to any AMC IMAX, it's a trap.
MOSI is a dome theatre.
This has been my family's mechanic for a number of years. I like the guy a lot, he's very efficient.
Most importantly he's honest, I've never been cheated. For automotive shops, that's saying a lot. A couple of times I came in with problems I expected cost a fortune, but I drove away with a bill under $80.
This is officially my favorite sushi place in Tampa.
Great service, the staff are all excellent. The decor is really charming. The food is fantastic. I can't get over how much I enjoyed this place. It's not expensive either, a typical sushi/sashimi order runs around $5-$6.
It's in kind of a bad location, the strip mall it resides in looks a bit run-down. Don't be put off, this place is great.
Great food and great service.
I had brunch here a few hours ago, and it was a fantastic experience. The staff were very friendly and competent, one of the cooks came out and struck up a conversation with us.
The food was great, I had the smoked salmon breakfast. It was simple, but delicious.
Our server let us sample their soups - they were among the best I've ever had, the clam chowder and the chicken soup especially.
I'll definitely return.
