    Found this nice quiet spot on the inland water way in Lauderdale by the Sea. The service was great and the menu had many interesting and tasty items. However, the prices were far higher given its location. For example, diver scallops, which were done very nicely, were $38 and was one of the lower priced items. A martini was $15 and was a regular pour. Anyone going can expect a good meal and good service but you will pay the price for the view.

    Dined on 11/15/2014
    The Look of the new menu is too cheap and the "day specials" are less interesting than before. The ambiance after renovation is good for outdoor dining but for the interior part we feel the place like a cafeteria. Not enough luxe for the prices on the menu. Too clear, too empty... I went at that place a lot of times before renovations but my recent experience wasn't a wow! Sorry.

    Although I have always enjoyed dining a the Blue Moon, this time was the absolute best. We shared the specialty appetizer which was superb, followed by the salmon atop quinoa, avocado & mango, which also excellent. My husband had the yellowtail; also very good. The bread basket with garlic olive oil dipping sauce was worth a mention also; with it's nice crusty whole grain bread. Our waiter, Kimbro, was friendly and efficient and always available when needed. A great dining experience

    I understand that this restaurant recently underwent a remodel and has new menu. They need to go back and do some work. They had a great reputation and our group couldn't wait to go back. The food was good, but it did not match the Blue Moon reputation. Our server was fine, but when the staff brought out the dishes the delivered them to the wrong people and we had to pass things around. This should not happen at a restaurant of this caliber. This used to be THE place to go in Fort Lauderdale. We've decided that when our group comes back, Blue Moon will not be on our list.

    Great food, great service, a little on the expensive side. Four of us went to dinner on Sunday at 6.30. Each of us ordered a different entree (a rarity--and a sign of all the spectacular dishes offered); we each had a drink, and we shared an appetizer. The bill came to $250 (pre-tip).

    The new renovation is beautiful. Service was great as usual. The new format of ordering from a menu for many items was also great. The food was freshly made and nice and hot when it was bought to the table. Staff was on top of clearing dishing, refilling cocktails and bring platters that were ordered for the table. The buffet has a much better flow with less stations. I just wish I was a bigger eater!!! Great place to go with a group of friends for a relaxing brunch.

    We returned to Blue Moon after their interior and exterior renovation. Greeted by the raw bar on the right and the hostess on the left, we immediately felt the openness of the new windows, bar and seating arrangements. A welcome change. Menu remains good, but prices seem higher and we were missing some previous favorite dishes.

    I ate at the Blue Moon Fish Company on Royal Palm in Coral Springs a few years back and was so impressed with the food I haven't been able to stop talking about it. Although the ambience at this Blue Moon was much better, I didn't even finish my dinner. My filet mignon was not cooked through nor my husband's. I even ordered mine to be cooked medium as I am pregnant. Do not think I would go back to this restaurant but may try the one on Royal Palm again.

    My wife and I recently went to Blue Moon to celebrate our one year anniversary. As always, the location/view is incredible. The atmosphere is amazing and a great place to go for special occasions. We started with the Calamari/Rock Shrimp, which was good but a bit underwhelming. I had the Rare Tuna (Hot Pot). The vegetables/shrimp and the broth were both really good (definitely has a spicy kick to it), but the Tuna did not have much flavor. My wife had the Grouper, which was by far the best thing we ate all night. Definitely something to consider if you are going to visit.

    Very pretentious for the quality of food and service! Despite reserving weeks in advance was seated in the worst table for a romantic dinner. Was told could not move to a better empty table because it was "reserved". Huh? I made a reservation too! Ordered crab bisque, it was alright. Then ordered dinner of scallops and DH ordered salmon. Food was delivered almost immediately, must of been pre-cooked. Overall, nothing exciting for the price and would not recommend.

    The renovation turned out very good; the place has a new, clean look. We had a party of six for my wife's special birthday. We had requested waterside seating. A table for six there was not available so we sat inside and were the only party there ... so it was quiet. Our waiter was okay, the food was okay, but, I'd say, overpriced for what we got. We did not complain; the staff was polite and professional.

All the food was AMAZING, from the Apps to the Entrée, and OMG the Souffle was to die for. we mixed Chocolate and Raspberry. I have NO Complaints about this at all. It is a bit on the Pricey side, but well worth the meal. Everything about this place was really good, freshly renovated and you can tell, everything is new, crisp and fresh.

    We used to dine at Blue Moon quite a bit. We hadn't been in a while and in the interval they did some remodeling and changed the menu. The restaurant looked very nice however the menu was disappointing. A few of our favorites were taken off. The salad was drenched with way too much dressing and the lettuce wasn't cut enough, the pieces were way too big. The scallops were good but overpriced. When our server asked what we thought, we were honest (in a nice way). One of the owners came over (NOT at our request), and she was very rude. She asked what was wrong and when we told her she took it personally and seemed insulted; instead of taking it as constructive criticism (isn't that why they ask in the first place?).

    Our table was ready and we were seated immediately. Our table was inside overlooking the water. Cocktails are always excellent here but we did find the house red a little pricey at $18 per glass. They brought water and bread quickly while we perused the menu and enjoyed the scenery. The Chilean Sea Bass is always awesome as was the evening special "stuffed grouper". We skipped desert but everything else is superb.
