TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - Each week, we bring you Restaurant Ratings, a look at the 30 Tampa Bay restaurants that were given the most violations by state inspectors during the previous week.

We also investigate restaurants' past inspections when we receive requests from our readers.

We received a request from "Kathy" who wanted us to look into the Colonnade Restaurant located at 3401 Bayshore Blvd. in Tampa. Kathy expressed concern about the smell of the restaurant's rug and the cleanliness of the rug and restaurant.

We did some digging and found that the Colonnade Restaurant has had four inspections since 2012. The restaurant met inspection standards during each of these four visits by state inspectors. Records also show the restaurant did not have problems with bugs or rodents during the four inspections.

The most recent inspection was on April 21, 2014. State inspectors found 30 violations. There was no mention of any offensive odors in the inspection report, which Kathy was concerned about.

There was also no mention about the rug, but inspectors did say that some floor tiles in the kitchen were cracked, broken or in disrepair. The floor under dish machine or 3-compartment sink was soiled and the floor in the produce cooler was not maintained in a smooth and durable condition.

State inspectors also found a dented or rusted can of black olives and some raw eggs were stored over a bag of lettuce.

Regarding Kathy's concerns about a smelly and dirty rug, we spoke to the restaurant's assistant manager Jeremy Garrett, who said that the carpet in the restaurant had just been replaced after about 4 to 5 years of use.

"It was old, but not that old," he said.

State inspectors also visited the restaurant on the following dates.
