L'Eden - Tampa

Hey Chowhounders!

Wondering what you all thought of the food and atmosphere during lunchtime at L'Eden in downtown Tampa. Is it the type of place you can get the gals together for lunch like you can at Pane Rustica?

Thanks so much!

    All I know is that the Times critic didn't give it a good review, but I've never been. Is it still open?

      The restaurant is very small, and the menu is fairly limited...mostly salads, quiches and crepes (all of which I've tried and found to be pretty good). Portions are a little on small side, and service can be slow. I'd rate it "good" but not "great".

        Thanks to you both for your feedback! We'll try it eventually, but not with high expectations.

        I have to praise L'Eden. I really love this place. The salads are huge and they have a great selection. The homemade balsamic dressing is fresh and creamy--virtually unrecognizable from processed restaurant fare. The sandwiches are great, as well.
