Private Room Restaurant - Tampa, FL ASAP
I had a restaurant picked out to propose to my girlfriend, but now I am second guessing the idea. I don’t want to propose in front of a lot of people, so I am looking for a private room in a restaurant. I live in the Carrollwood, so I called Grille One Sixteen, and they wanted a $1000 minimum for 8 people. In addition, when I called the person on the other end presented the room to me in very rude way, by saying in snobbish manner, “If you want the room you have to pay $1000 bucks or we can seat you in the main room.” So I guess scratch that idea. I’m looking for a private room in restaurant for Wednesday night. Yes, I understand it’s a very busy night, but I’m lost! So any ideas would be great!
You want a private room for 2? Most restaurants reserve them for larger groups and many want a sales minimum- like Grille one sixteen (whose main entrees really aren't worth the price anyway, imo)
I say go for dessert at Bern's Harry Waugh Dessert room- they have private booths with music and you don't need a reservation for dessert only (they don't take res's for dessert only.)
If you like really great seafood, try Oystercatchers at the Grand Hyatt on Courtney Campbell. It's a wonderful atmosphere directly on the water and the fresh seafood is great, if a little pricey.
They might be able to fix you up with a private room, although I'm sure they can setup a table for eight in a semi-private fashion.
They've got a room with private bar/dinner service etc at Lime on South Howard in Tampa. Though it's not fine dining, it is very close to that and a very intimate setting if you can get the room this late.
