Went here for dinner on a Saturday a few weeks ago. There was a significant wait, which was ok, bc we were in no rush and figured we'd have drinks at the bar. The hostess even encouraged us to go to the bar saying they'd "take good care of us." Well, we waited over 25 minutes before we were even... More

We decided at the lair minute to try Anise because it had good ratings on TripAdvisor. I felt the restaurant was rated better than our experience. The legendary "Stinky Bunz" were good but I guess I was expecting something more incredible. I am not much for the bunz. I had the Tuna Tartare and it was good, but not special.... More

This was a pleasant surprise. We were in town for a concert at Tampa Theatre. I had seen some good reviews on this place, so we decided to stop by for a late lunch/early dinner. We tried the shrimp and Chinese BBQ pork sticky bunz to start. They were great! Then we had the shrimp tacos (highly recommend) and the... More

I had dinner at Anise on Saturday with family. It is one of my favourite places when I visit family in Tampa. I love the ambience. The waitstaff are professional and friendly, the service prompt. We had a delicious meal of escargot's, shrimp tacos and chicken. Well done to the chefs! The drinks menu fulfills all needs! We really enjoyed... More

Bartender was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The menu was very interesting. We had the truffle tater tots first. We loved them. Great food to start. My girlfriend had the Baked Goat Cheese. It was very good and the baguette was fresh. Good portion too. I had the Lobster Mac with the bacon. We both felt the portion... More

This place is real nice. Their portions are not huge but the restaurant is a little pricy. It was a special occasion so we treated ourselves. Our waitress, Lauren, was awesome and it was a great place. We enjoyed it.

We had a group of 10-12 old friends reconnecting for. Nice evening. They accepted our reservation and could not have treated us better. We had plenty of time to visit and catch up. The food was delivered fresh, hot, cold, as expected.

I visited Anise during the College Football National Championship weekend as it is very convenient to most downtown hotels and Curtis Hixon Park and the Riverwalk. When looking for dinner late in the evening, Anise felt like a risky choice. The interior is very hip with leather benches, a long full service bar and clientele that typically appears to be...

The relaxed atmosphere, friendly bartenders and creative menu were a nice introduction to the area after checking in to my hotel on a Thursday evening. The small plates and steam buns (they call them Stinky Bunz) are great options when you don't feel like a big meal.

I was staying at a nearby hotel for business and wanted something other than fast food. I ordered the tater tots, Greek burger, and deviled eggs. All were very good. I did not eat at the restaurant, but the place looked nice. Staff were attentive in getting my to-go order.
