Discover the Best New Restaurants in St. Petersburg

The OpenTable Team

Nestled on the bright blue waters of Tampa Bay, the cosmopolitan city of St. Petersburg sits on Florida's Gulf coast, making it one of the best places in the country to live, visit, eat, drink and play! The downtown arts and culture scene continues to thrive, with the spectacular Dali Museum anchoring the waterfront. Historic, small-scale neighborhoods balance the big-city pleasures and mild winters. 35 miles of white-sand beaches offer a quality of life with which few other places can compete! Visit attractions like the Clearwater Marine Aquarium or get your feet wet while boating, sailing, or stand-up paddle-boarding. The sunshine-infused city provides a popular destination for visitors of all ages, and everyone loves St. Petersburg's laid back atmosphere with access to fresh seafood.
