We have been all over Europe and have spent a good amount of time eating at some of the most iconic French restaurants in and around Paris. Piquant offers a strong taste of France for Tampa Bay foodies. The freshness, depth and detail that goes into the food is extraordinary; however, the service is unfortunately below average. Its a shame... More

Piquant is a lovely place that has a wonderful bakery and serves delicious food, too. The restaurant also serves "high tea," unusual for most places. The food is clean and fresh, served with great care.

I took my teenage neice there as a treat. We ordered an appetizer that was very small portioned. My request for Brie cheese was not able to be an option on a sandwich since they do not keep in stock. Thought strange other less French favorites were on the menu. Cost seemed a bit high for overall experience. Great homemade... More

Merci Renee for visiting our wonderful restaurant. First, we do not plate 'American style' opting more for the 'European style' for which we are known for. Also, we have never attempted to call ourselves only French, as we market our restaurant French-inspired allowing us some creative freedom on the creation of our dishes. With this being said, many of our... More

This restaurant was great! They didn't have a LOT of gluten free options, but the options they have are great! You can substitute gluten free bread (for an additional 3.00) for any of their sandwiches. I was initially dissapointed that I could't get GF French bread and I was not keen on the idea of getting the regular bread toasted.... More

After a really hectic day, my wife and I sat outside on the patio. Had some nice Prosecco, a very tasty vegetarian flatbread and split a great salad. Service was excellent.
