    I’ve been to T42 several times previously and enjoyed it. It had a good atmosphere, live music or a DJ and enough people to give the place atmosphere and a fun spirit. We’ve even danced there after dinner! When I made the reservation for 7 people this evening I made a note that this was a birthday celebration. It was so disappointing! There was no live music or DJ, very few people in the place and yet the service was extremely slow and pretty poor. Several times I and one of my guests had to go looking for the servers. We had to ask for lights to be turned on we were not served our meals at the same time. Several dishes on the menu were not available, ditto several wines. Just an extremely disappointing experience for a birthday celebration. I and my friends won’t be returning any time soon. Someone has dropped the ball here.

    Mother’s Day Went for a nice brunch at T42. Have never been before so was not aware of what to expect. It was explained that they serve small portions meant to be shared… (?). How does one share a small portion? I ordered French toast with peaches. Husband ordered lemon blueberry pancakes. 1 side of crispy potatoes and 1 side of sausage crumbles. What arrived: 1 thin slice of French toast with peaches and cream. Just 1 slice…. Delicious, but kinda wish I didn’t share with hubby…. Husband’s 2 pancakes were over cooked to nearly burned and dry. Had this not been the case, the flavor would have been very tasty. We didn’t complain. Waitress stopped by to ask how the brunch was…. Never received the sides. The ordered went to a different table. She was very apologetic. At this point we should have just paid the bill and left. But, she promised 3 minutes. Potatoes came out not at all crispy and way undercooked. The sausage crumbles were hard marbles. Yup…. Should have just forgone the sides. We were comped the potatoes and 10% of the meal. Would we return? Meh….

    The ambience in the restaurant was strange, there’s live music that just stopped at 9 PM with no music on the menu is very strange and the food was bland and definitely not worth the price. It was like eating worse than diner food at a nice restaurant. The service though was very good. I would not return to this restaurant.

    Expensive and little portions. The food was not as tasty as I would have thought for the small portions they serve. We waited 10 to 15 minutes for iced tea, though my margarita took only 5 minutes.

    We always enjoy this restaurant. The selection and quality of the food is excellent. We have never had bad service and didn’t on our last visit, but we did have some service issues that I hope are corrected. We ordered drinks and shortly after ordered our first course. The first course came before the drinks and my friends selection arrived much later than mine. The same thing happened with our entrees. Mine took longer to come out, and had to insist that he ate so it wouldn’t get cold. All in all, it was still a wonderful experience and I highly recommend.

    The food, as always, did not disappoint. Great mix of choices and flavors. Drinks were exceptional, excepts they ran out of a mix when we wanted a second drink. We were glad that we chose to sit outside because the band in the bar area was loud, average, and unnecessary. Doubtful the group brought in extra clients. The service was fair - very slow. I don't think they were very busy but perhaps the slim staff they had was being pulled too thin, which is the impression our waitress gave us. This is one of our favorite restaurants, so we'll continue to visit and hope the service improves to the level it was during prior visits.

There was entertainment and the staff was very friendly and accommodating….they actually seemed to like working there. The decor is fresh and inviting. The food was delicious and prices are reasonable.

    This place is absolutely fabulous. Delectably delicious cuisine that spans from Italian, Spanish, French and America provincial fare. A real treat for your tastebuds that allows you to share each order and size it for the group you’re with or just order small plates for yourself. Some of my favorites are the Napoletano Meatballs, T42 Fiocchi Pear, Short Rib Sliders, and all the Flat Breads are excellent. Don’t forget to try their Proprietary T42 Vodka , Gin, or Flavored Martini. Plus nightly entertainment. I love Friday’s because they’ve got a Sinatra singer which is dead on. If you weren’t looking you’d think Frank was standing the corner singing. Will continue to go back. Love this place!!!

    The service is very slow. I'm not sure if they have a staffing issue or not, but we waited almost 45 minutes to place our order and then another 45 minutes until we got part of our order. The kitchen is not accommodating to anyone with special food needs beside allergies. When you have live or loud music in the bar area, which is open to the rest of the restaurant and easily heard - Please, please shut the house music off! It's so annoying to hear two different songs at the same time!

    My Wife and I were greeted by the owner who came back to our table several times after seating us outside as requested. The food was simply outstanding, with serving portions unexpectedly large considering T42 is a tapas restaurant. We ordered mostly seafood selections which were cooked and perfectly presented by the staff. I personally enjoyed 3 different selections of Italian wines, including Super Tuscans and a Chianti Classico. Each reasonably priced, with a generous pour. We were greatly impressed by the quality of the food, the service, and the overall ambiance and decor. However, we couldn’t help but appreciate the immense VALUE of total dining experience, as again, everything was very reasonably priced. Needless to say, we’ll be back soon……with friends.

    Out waitress Suzanne we excellent. She gave us time to peruse the menu and didn't rush us out. Started with the Charcuterie since we were 4 people and wanted time to look at the menu. This gave us some food and time to make our choices. My wife and I shared the Caesars salad, a flat bread, Filet skewers, and Clams served on Pasta shells. All of it excellent. I know some people complain about the 4% CC surcharge. I knew this going in and had cash on hand as 4% is better than any rewards card I have. The couple we were with, whom we have vacationed around Europe with eating at Michelin stars restaurants, felt it was one of the best restaurants in SW Florida they have been to.

    This place is absolutely stunning. It has so much to offer. It was explained to me to be like a buffet delivered to your table. If you go with a group and don't know what to order, everyone picks a plate and shares. The dishes are spectacular and sure to please the pallet. I haven't had a single thing that I didn't like. If you are thinking of trying it, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

    Our first time at T42 and it won't be our last! The servers were friendly and efficient and the food was delicious...love the tapas style dining - each dish we had was so good, and it was fun to have a taste of each item. We sat outside and the set-up was nice - although the traffic noise was a little distracting. Inside, the bar was lively and the singer was awesome!

    The food was very good - our server was pleasant and knowledgeable. However, at 6 o'clock live music started and at that point we could no longer carry on a conversation. It was ridiculously loud in the small bar area. We asked our waitress if they could tone it down and she suggested we let the hostess know. She also indicated that the wait staff has great difficulty communicating with diners. We finally had to get up and leave because the music was too overwhelming. We were also told that because it was Monday, the entire menu would be 20% off. Our friend paid the bill and after we left the restaurant, he told us they took 20% off the drinks only. He didn't want to go back into the restaurant to have the bill corrected because of the loud music. Because of these issues we will not return to T42.

    We enjoyed brunch very much. Our disappointment is two-fold. 1. When you have live music in the bar, please turn off the house music. It is maddening and inconsiderate on the part of management to have two completely different songs playing at the same volume at the same time. 2. If you want more people to enjoy your restaurant, lighten up on the “no substitutions” policy. Some people have food allergies. Also some people come in with their elderly parents who do not have or want sophisticated palates and like simple things, like scrambled eggs and bacon. For which I am very happy you accommodated us with that yesterday, but not before our server had to ask permission.

    This may be the biggest food secret in SW Florida. Don’t let the tapas idea turn you away, you can have your own dishes. All the food we ordered was very tasty but the chef really showed off with salmon carpaccio dish. We were just two and had a great time trying out the menu. We’ll have to try again several times to get through it all. And it would be great with friends to share the experience. Whatever, we’re excited to book our next visit. Do yourself a big favor and get to this place soon. You won’t regret it.
