We met friends for a nice family dinner, and were really pleased -- the food is not just delicious, but surprising in ways that make you pay attention. My wife had escargot in blue cheese and garlic sauce, and pronounced it the best ever. I had a spinach salad with warm pears, goat cheese, and a balsalmic/sherry reduction, and that was also fantastic. For a main course, I had grouper in a citrus and coconut milk sauce over quinoa that was absolutely delicious. The really interesting thing was my wife's tenderloin. The tenderloin had a mocha/espresso rub, and was in a cream sauce. It was fantastic; I've never had anything like it. We split a flourless chocolate cake for dessert. We liked Chill so much we return a couple days later for brunch. I had a spinach and artichoke with goat cheese crepe, and home fries that were crisp and perfectly seasoned. The service was good, quick, and unobtrusive, and the ambience was good too. In the evening, there was an excellent piano player and singer, who was a lot of fun, without being overwhelming.

Visited during the soft opening, and wow - this is going to be a great fit for the area.
The interior is fantastic, including a new outdoor dining area that the previous restaurant lacked.
HUGE square-shaped bar right when you walk in, designed for comfortable dining barside. Nice booths and hi-tops. They really got the details right. Some final interior decor touches are still in progress but I have no doubt they will continue the trend of smooth coolness.
I had the brioche french toast, eggs & bacon...everything was fantastic. I'll be back!
“Wonderful Experience with 3 serious Food Allergies”

I was worried. Too many food allergies. Wife gluten. Her mom sulfites and the relative from Denmark zero dairy. It was not going to be easy. Most servers just aren't patient enough and say, yea, yea, no problem. Gilbert was not that guy. Sweet, patient and a true server. He solved every problem. Asked the chef and they modified things as needed. This place moved here a month ago. We liked it in the old spot too. Very nice tapas menu section. Goat cheese tapenade was yummy. Escargot app was cheesy and amazing. Dad had the duck. Yum. I had espresso beef tips which were to die for. Nice wine list. 6 people, 4 glasses of wine, $190 before tip. Way above average everything. Do not hesitate. Try it. Your next regular spot.Visited November 2015
“Chill 2.0 - new location, better environment, bar, some of the same old delicious favorites”

Chill has moved just three blocks down to Corey Ave proper - away from that dicey intersection at the corner of Gulf Blvd. there's still ample parking and WOW- the moment you walk in you can't help but be impressed. The new floor plan is beautiful and there's a back room for private parties / functions. We were so impressed we have booked Chill for our rehearsal dinner and asked them to cater our wedding. The new menu has some of the original fan favorite items not to be missed (goat cheese terrine and stuffed dates will rock your world) but they have added a section for traditional entrees served with a salad. The new bar is beautiful and the piano bar was packed when we went last Friday night. My favorite part of the space is the al fresco dining- it was ingenuously designed to offer and indoor/outdoor space with privacy from the street but still feels fresh. It's the perfect space for a shower or brunch event. Don't miss chill! Still my personal favorite place up and down the gulf beaches as a local.
OpenTable Diner Since 2016 (Tampa)
·Dined on July 18, 2016
Hands down one of the best restaurants in that area! Our table of 4 adults and 3 children had dinner. The food was absolutely delicious and they had gluten free options for myself. We ordered a variety of small plates and peered several of the same because they were just that good. The kids had to take their hamburgers home with them because they enjoyed the lobster bisque and escargot so much. We thought the portion sizes were really good considering the price. Our meals were delicious and some adults had to get boxes because they too were not able to eat everything.
The upscale atmosphere was very welcoming and relaxing. The decor was in good taste. We dressed up a little but I don't think it would matter if we didn't. The waitress was fabulous and the food didn't take long considering the menu. They have a nice bar that sits in the center of the restaurant that could be nice to visit as a couple.
Overall, we were very pleased and we will be back again!
