We are hiring at the Epicurean Hotel! We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our EPIC team! Do you think you have the right ingredients to add to the mix? Apply today! The Epicurean Hotel is located on South Howard Avenue and sits across the street from the world renowned Bern’s Steak House. The Epicurean is a Food & Wine inspired concept a part of the Marriott Autograph Collection group. We’ve crafted a foodies paradise.  A wine lover’s dream.  A place for connoisseurs of life to come and indulge their appetite.  Because there is no greater homage to life than to indulge in and explore all the flavors that it has to offer.  If you share our passion, we look forward to hearing from you.


As a server assistant, we count on you to support and make things happen. Does a server need help? Is there an In Room Dining order that needs to be run? How are we doing on glassware and silverware for the next shift? Additionally, we look to you to create a unique, personal experience for each guest you encounter by making personal connections – What brings you to Tampa? What’s your favorite grape varietal? Favorite spirit? – and responding with genuine suggestions. You blend equal parts enthusiasm, attention to detail, and knowledge of our extensive food and beverage options. Educate and inform, entertain and engage. Garnish with a great attitude that brings guests back. We strive for loyalty beyond reason!
