Southern living meets Vineyard Vines interiors - impeccably trained wait staff - impressive wine list and perfectly prepared, elegant items. Definitely worth the splurge! We loved the live piano during dinner.

We enjoyed a Christmas Eve Dinner at the Gasparilla Inn. We enjoyed the decor and piano player. Filet Mignon's were very good. Only issue we had was an inattentive server. Would definitely eat at the Inn again.

The setting is beautiful and you will get very good service but the food is horrible. I sent my meal back it was covered in salt and the fish quality was very poor. Spend your money at Temptations.

We have not dined there on the New Year's Eve but surely the costs are quite high. Menu and service is very good, it could be a memorable evening. You have to book in good time, though, and the dress code should be at the... More
