Terrible. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME / MONEY! – If you hate your life, then go to Blue Martini! It was my wife's birthday, we ordered a table and showed up a little late, at which point the awful bouncer refused to let us in and completely ignored us standing in line. This place is garbage, and there are a ton of better establishments in Tampa.
Don't waste your time!
Bad service. Felt ripped off. – I ordered three beers. Wife ordered some stuff. Waitress asked for my credit card. Seemed fair. I gave it to her. Later I found that she (tried to) put all the food and drinks for the whole group I was with (about 15 people) on my card (without my approval). Took forever -- no, longer -- for her to sort it out. I suspect she ripped us off because the bill seemed extremely, illogically high, but she didn't bring an itemized list of what was ordered and we'd waited SO long for the bill to get sorted out that I just paid it. Rip-off, in my opinion. I was not able to get the hostess to call over a manager, even though I tried twice.
not impressed – MY WIFE AND I RECENTLY STOPPED AT BLUE MARTINI FOR HAPPY HOUR ON OUR WAY TO THE AIRPORT AND WERENT REAL HAPPY WITH OUR EXPERIENCE .SERVICE WAS POOR ! WE SAT OUT AT THE OUTSIDE BAR AND WAITED ATLEAST 15 MINS TO GET A COCKTAIL BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT THE BARTENDER WAS TOO BUSY SNACKING ON HER FOOD AND TALKING TO THE OTHER BARTENDER TO GET OUR DRINKS .ONCE WE FINALY GOT OUR DRINKS THEY WERE VERY GOOD !!!! I HAD THE BLUE MARTINI AND MY WIFE HAD THE CHOCALATE MARTINI ,NEXT WE DECIDED TO TRY SOME APPETIZERS MY WIFE HAD THE SHRIMP MARTINI AND I HAD THE SLICED TENDERLOIN .THE SHRIMP WERE LARGE IN SIZE BUT TOUGH AND CHEWY ,AND THE TENDERLOIN WAS POORLY COOKED AND HAD THE CONSISTENCY OF A PORK CHOP .AFTER OUYR EXPERIENCE THAT DAY I WOULD RECOMEND THE DRINKS BUT THE FOOD WAS HORRIBLE AND WOULD OF RATHER GONE TO THE FOOD COURT!!!!!!!!!
Chic and a good time – There should be more bars like the Blue Martini - had such a great time. We did not have to wait too long to get in and once in it was not over crowded at all. Service was prompt and all amenities were clean and elegant.
Always A Good Time – The drinks & service at blue martini are always top notch. I always have a good time when I come, wheteher I come with my boyfriend or my friends, I always fell comfortable with the nice crowd.
Disappointed – My first experience at Blue Martini was great. Was with a guy friend and we had great table service, great ambience, band, drinks, etc. I went back on a friday w/ a girlfriend and had really poor service. We sat outside at the bar and waited 30 mins to be served. We were sitting right beside where she made drinks. We gave her the benefit of the doubt that she was really busy (she WAS the only bartendar outside during happy hour). However, things got progressively worse. People would be served 2 rounds of drinks before she would even turn to us. Getting her attention was useless. Even the guys around us didn't understand why were being ignored. They started ordering for us, b/c she obviously had an issue. I'm normally all about girl bartendars b/c I am one! But, I couldn't believe how bad the service was. I chose not to complain, b/c I thought she was swamped, however it didn't improve when another bartendar was added. I don't know if it had to do w/ us being 2 girls' or what, but I have no desire to go back there now. If I do it wll I will make sure to sit at a table or at least have a guy w/ me since that's what they seem to cater to. Unfortunately, she missed out on a great tipper......
BEST Tampa Bar/Club – The Blue Martini is Tampa's place to hang out for drinks and fun. I have been going over 4 years now and I am hooked on Blue. The service is excellent, the crowd after 11 is a blast, they have live music Monday through Saturday, and the food is great (try the seared tuna or sliced beef tenderloin). The bartenders are the best in the business - they will take care of you. The cocktail waitresses, bar-backs, and even the security staff, are all customer friendly. Check the band schedule and watch for The Knot as they are the best that play there (R&B style music).
If you are a non-smoker, be prepared, as smoking is allowed in this club!!
average – I have mixed reviews for the blue martini, upbeat fun environment, commercial bands, drinks are too expensive. I really dont like the fact that whenever I go in there it seems much more of a pickup bar than a classy establishment. Very smoky inside. I would say good for men or women that want to get some or a sexually transmitted disease
There are so many other places to go in town besides here! – Constantly raided for illegal sales of illegal substances even by the staff. HUGE pick up joint! Live bands are not the best! Only good thing I can think of after going several times is that its in a mall so plenty of parking!
Great Atmosphere – Very trendy spot for a good martini. Sit outside and watch the people go by or sit inside at the bar. Usually a good band playing too.
