    Traveling the world since years we were surprised by this Restaurant. We had Brunch there last Sunday and we can´t tell what was the most impressing thing. The staff, the kitchen, the hospitality, the personal touch, everything "A´ la bonne heure". We were so impressed that we booked right again for the next brunch.

    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.

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    The hostess who seated us was disinterested and rude. It was extremely noisy. Although the service was prompt they were loud and overly friendly with the guests. We requested a table outside and the outside was completely enclosed by plastic awnings. We were told that it is only open during the winter months. The view is over the Intracoastal, very close to the bridge so you have traffic noise. There is also a large condo building across from the restaurant that obstructs your view. Our food was a disappointment as well. My husbands fish special was not fresh but frozen. We were told the owner had caught the fish that day? Wine list decent but limited. Over all mediocre food, over priced, very noisy. Would not recommend!

    very disappointed with my meal I had sword fish, also to pay $3.00 for parking when you spend close to $200.00 for a meal is an insult, and when I asked the Valet he said because we did not get enough tips, as long as they charge to park I will not return

    The appetizer was "jumbo shrimp," (3) all of which were tough and stil partially frozen for $18. Then the waiter was rushing to flip the table and we had to ask him to please slow down. The entree's were nothing special and the orzo concoction was pasty. We won't go back. I willl spend my money elsewhere.

    If your taste buds yell out, "fresh fish!", your brain cells "ambiance on the Intracoastal waterfront", and your body "relaxation", The Blue Moon Fish Company has to be visited for a meal that will leave you fully satisfied. And a lot more often than just "in a blue moon"! Friendly staff, delicious gourmet food, beautiful location & ambiance! A must - visit for everyone visiting Fort Lauderdale!

    Food & service were excellent! It was a little bit warm on the patio, and the plastic blinds were down, I guess keeping the sun out, but there wasn't enough air circulating in the area where all patrons were seated and dining. Derrick was an awesome waiter! Kept the mimosas and bloody Mary's coming, would definitely return!

    Great upscale dining experience. Experienced staff and superb food. Never had to ask for anything twice. Timing was impeccable. Not rushed or left waiting. Thoroughly enjoyed the sea bass. We were dining with a business associate and wanted a place to take someone where no complaints could be made. This is the place.

    We went to Blue Moon to celebrate my wife's birthday. We wanted to sit outdoors, but the threat of rain ended that thought. however, the Blue Moon has a barrier that allows you to sit indoors and still enjoy the ambiance of outdoor seating. The food was outstanding. we had the Chilean sea bass special with bok choy and the swordfish and neither of us were disappointed. great service as well. a wonderful experience.

    I love coming to Blue Moon For their Sunday Brunch! I brought out of town guests this time, and they loved it. There's a wide variety of food to please everyone. Absolutely love the desserts...especially the creme brûlée. The waiters are really friendly and attentive. I love coming here to celebrate special occasions and take out of town guests. The view of the water is so relaxing.

    We really enjoy the brunch when you can sit outside and the plastic walls are not down .... gets way too loud and you cannot hear what anyone in your party is saying. Also, gets way to crowded by the shrimp/crab/oyster bar; people run into everyone.

    The food at Blue Moon was great. Because or some dietary issues, there were some menu items that were not an option. But, the restaurant was good about mixing and matching. I wish they had a grouper or snapper that also was not combined with shellfish. (I don't eat shellfish, so it meant very limited options.) Service was not as friendly as I have experienced previously, but our waiter was very efficient. We did not order much alcohol and I think that affects service at this restaurant.

    We were in search of great seafood and Blue Moon definitely measured up. The scallops were succulent and the pan seared seafood was imaginative. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. The big problem: there was a table of about 8 people screaming (literally) and carrying on only a couple of tables away from us. A birthday celebration, apparently, that involved only heavy drinking and not dining. The management did nothing about this (they could have been escorted to the bar area where there were also large tables). This seriously disturbed what could have been a relaxing dining experience for us. Finally, the place is in need of a design overhaul--it's looking a bit dated.

    We've been to this restaurant twice. The first time was amazing. We were informed, on that first visit, that they have an amazing choc soufflé which had to be ordered in the beginning of our meal as it took at least an hour to make. We did and it was truly amazing. The most recent visit was less informative, food was good but presentation was looked rushed, some parts were overcooked and surprisingly the service was slow. When offered dessert, I was thinking soufflé and when asked, the waiter said "oh yea! That should have been ordered before dinner." Disappointing. I still luv the views and the atmosphere of the restaurant and it may have been an "off" night for the visit. We're gonna go back and try again because the food truly is amazing

I always try something new and tonight was no different. We were NOT disappointed at all. They brought the climate control covering down to help to eliminate the humidity. This was a wonderful dining experience. Can't wait to go back.

    The brunch at Blue Moon Fish Co. is just ridiculous with the number of items they have available. My head was spinning. Lamb chops, crab, oysters, gumbo, tons of salads, cheeses, sushi, chocolate fondue and tons more not to mention the made to order crab cakes. And bottomless champagne, bloody mary's and mimosas. The price is VERY affordable...... Its AMAZING.

    Had dinner with my special man and the food was excellent and creative. The presentation was also outstanding. It's not inexpensive but not ridiculous either. The souffle is a must, but order it with your meal as it requires prep time. I eat at Blue Moon when they run a Groupon special and I just love eating there. I wholeheartedly recommend.

    Disappointing. It did not live up to the reputation. Food was not hot. Felt like the chefs were trying to upstage the main ingredient, the fish. Way too complex and it failed. Key lime pie was way too sweet and more of a cheese cake. The overall experience was not worth the price.

    I haven't been to the BMFC in a year. I'm seriously not sure how this restaurant fell off of my radar, but trust me, that won't happen again! We were seated at a waterside outdoor table in the middle of the summer...BMFC drops the clear side-flaps & pumps in the A/C...which was lovely. The house bread basket, served with creamy butter, olive oil, & roasted garlic (yummy), was fresh, crusty, & delicious. We shared Canadian Cove Mussels...a larger than expected mound tender mussels cooked with lemon, butter, white wine, tomatoes, rosemary, & pancetta...& a Lobster Roll, served with homemade potato chips and coleslaw. Both 'entrees' were truly sensational & the service (thanks, Jason) excellent. I'll be back soon! Go. You'll love it.
