Do you like to go out for special occasions? Whether it be birthdays, anniversaries, or just looking for a new dining experience, going out in Tampa leaves you with a lot of options. This list has all of the best restaurants in Tampa to visit for any special occasion.

There’s a lot to factor when choosing your go-to restaurant. The ambiance, cuisine, price, and location are all big components. Whether you’re looking for something casual, or want to indulge in fine dining, Tampa has a variety of places to choose from. Some of the places on this list are great for romantic date nights, others have a better vibe for going out with friends. We got this inspiration from Stacker. Their full list of highest-rated restaurants in Tampa consists of 30 places using rankings from Tripadvisor. We condensed that list to the top 13 highest-rated restaurants. You may notice that we left out some Tampa classics like Bern’s Steak House or Eddie V’s. Don’t get us wrong, those places are great, but there are many other restaurants in Tampa to include that aren’t impossible to get a table at and won’t break the bank. No matter where you pick, we recommend making a reservation to avoid any long wait times.
