User review by watchful1 – I have eaten at The Laughing Cat twice in a period of 2 weeks. Both times I was extremely pleased with the service and the food. The dinner items are made fresh with each order and the experience truly satisfies the palate.
Mine mine all mine!!!! – Oh the quandry I find myself in! It's a restaurant you HATE to tell people about because you simply don't want to share it with anybody but this jewel deserves attention. LC is an unbelievable restaurant. Cozy charming chic interior makes you think you're in a (non-pretentious) european cafe, friendly service, spectacular food, no detail overlooked in this small restaurant. Incredible to find a chef who stays true to his vision of bright, flavorful, fresh food without mainstreaming the food for the masses. Service so friendly & outgoing you don't appreciate how good it is. The bread basket, wine, & water refill themselves. Food comes out of a tiny kitchen when finished, no hot lamps here. Wonderful restaurant with a "my favorite corner place" coziness. Prices are even "middle of the week" affordable. Pastas from $12 to indulgent specials at $25+. Great wines under $20.
Best Restaurant in Tampa! – The Laughing Cat is, hands down, the best restaurant in Tampa. Great Food! Great Service! Great Ambiance! Generous portions! It's got more personality than any other place I've been.
High Quality for Cheap – The best lunch in the Bay area, no kidding. A small but top-notch gourmet buffet for about $8, unless they've change it. Always patronized; an addictive steal. Just wish they might include some desserts in the buffet.
Fabulous. – I have been eating at the Laughing cat for years, since they were an 8 seat hole in the wall with no air conditioning. The current location has all of the same aromas rushing out of the front door, combined with elegant seating and a friendly professional staff. The cuisine is assembled with care, the service is top notch, and as the food on the Lunch Buffet is better than the majority of the Bay Area's restaurants' made to order dinners. If you go once, you will be back again and again.
