Our St. Petersburg friends recommended that we make reservations for the $19.25 Dinner at the Terrace Room at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort. The Classic 1925 Menu offers a choice of Chicken Noodle Soup or Romaine Gem Salad for Starters; Lamb Ragu, Seared Salmon or Braised Short Rib for the Entree; and Nutella Bavarian Torte or Banana Pudding Parfait for dessert....

The service and food at the Vinoy was as one would expect... impeccable. The table we were seated at faced out onto a small courtyard and the main entrance so we could see people coming an going. Our server was present without being intrusive and we enjoyed a variety of hot and cold foods. The only minor complaint was that... More

We made reservations for Brunch and thought it would be off the menu but it was only buffet.....we ordered their standard fare and it was OK....service was sketchy since they were catering to buffet patrons.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your dining experience here and for joining us for Brunch. I'm terribly sorry to hear that it was not what you had expected and that the service you described was certainly not what we are known and loved for. We are back to our large Sunday Brunch now instead... More

Good food and nice atmosphere. The hotel and the restaurants are all beautiful and well maintained. Try the fresh seafood whenever possible.

Everything was cooked to order, delicious, and generously served to our party of four. We tried the salmon burgers with sweet potato fries, the grouper sandwich with a side of fresh fruit, and the shrimp Caesar salad. The menu is varied and the serving help is attentive. Special orders are graciously accommodated. We definitely plan a return visit.

I enjoyed my stay at the Vinoy last weekend as a guest to my friends upcoming wedding. She invited 5 of her alma mater sisters and I was one of them. The food was very good, very overpriced and what else can I say. I had the Afternoon Tea. It was very nice with small portions of samplers. It was... More

Really enjoyed this hotel and restaurant. They spent 100 million on refurbishing this place and it looks it. Lots of history here. Really fresh fish and they accommodated my special requests. Grilled fish instead of fried, Special salad. They tried to fulfill all of my special requests. Nice relaxing atmosphere and facility

The Vinoy Hotel is a beautiful old building but very updated. While sitting outside on the veranda the fans are running and the tea is plentiful. We went for lunch and the restaurant was quite empty, the waitress spent much time giving us details about the food. The bread basket had some cranberry bread that was DELISH!!!! The décor is...
