3 Tampa spots make OpenTable’s best restaurants in America list

Three of the top restaurants in America are right here in Tampa, according to a recent list from OpenTable. To determine the list, the site analyzed more than 13 million reviews from restaurants across America — all submitted by verified OpenTable diners. The result is a selection of spots across the country that leave a lasting impression. One standout in Tampa, Ulele, has delighted diners due to its dreamy outdoor seating, exceptional craft beer, excelsior service, and commitment to Florida history.

The three spots in Tampa that made the cut are Ulele, Ocean Prime, and Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant. All three restaurants rank high for their atmosphere. That just shows the power of our wonderful Tampa aesthetic.

Ulele’s stellar pear and beat salad, addictive okra appetizer, irresistible Candied Maple Bacon ice cream with a Corn Flake Crust, and bevy of Florida-inspired entrees are unmatched. Add to it an on site brewery, an extensive wine list, and ample indoor/outdoor seating, and you’ve crafted the perfect restaurant. It blends sophistication with comfort in a way that can add romance and whimsy to any night out.
