    Really enjoyed the food and experience. The wine sommelier is excellent - great list & awesome choices for all price points. Food is very good - it is high end and a special occasion price point - but worth it. Definitely felt I received great value for the price.

    It was dinner for two on our wedding night. We wanted a water view and fine dining. The food was truly awesome, but quite expensive ($50 and $65 for entrees). Service was slow and clearly not commensurate with a restaurant of that class, but our waiter certainly tried hard.

    Location, ambiance, service are all outstanding. Great selection of wines. Food was very good - those having steaks liked them, although medium was more medium well and medium rare was more medium, but the beef quality was excellent. I had the yellow tail snapper special - sort of New Orleans style, and frankly, the fish was overcooked to the point of being a little too soft in consistency. Might add that portions are very generous, so sides can definitely be shared. Appetizers were outstanding, and the key lime pie is authentic and worthy of the calories if you are an aficionado. Bottom line is I'd definitely dine here again when we are looking for a special place in Ft. Lauderdale.

    We are very pleased that our travels brought us to Grill 66 & Bar! From the very warm greeting at the hostess stand to the very accommodating bar staff then to dinner we received excellent service. We enjoyed browsing through their extensive wine list and menu which led to a great evening with perfectly prepare food. We both had filet's that were prepared perfectly as requested with vegetables that weren't over cooked. We would highly recommend this restaurant!!!

    We have been going here for years & it has never disappointed. Right now they are replacing the marina docks so there is a fantastic unobstructed view. Steaks, fish, or lobster you can't go wrong. There are a greater Selection of sides, salads & desserts then what you find at the Lobster Bar on LOBlvd.

    We decided while on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale to celebrate our anniversary with a special dinner. Grille 66 & Bar was highly rated and we were not disappointed. Our server was great even though he forgot one item on our entree, he went out of his way to make it right. All the food was high quality but the steaks were what we were there for. They were cooked perfect, juicy and very flavorful. Although not inexpensive, we thought the quality of the food and great experience were a good value.

    This is a great restaurant that just seems to keep getting better. The setting on the water is beautiful. Parking is a little awkward since I always miss the entrance for valet. My wife and I ordered lobsters and we loved it. Our waiters were very professional and attentive. With salads, sides and desert, and no alcohol our bill for two came to $160. Well worth it.

    Dined on 7/3/2014
    We have dined at Grille 66 on many occasions. One of the most professionally staffed, highest-quality restaurants in Ft Lauderdale; a terrific place to take guests visiting (especially because of the outside dock, yacht and water views), and the excellent standards for both service and food. This time, we even asked in advance (via Open Table reservation) for low-sodium preparation, and mentioned that the occasion was a birthday. The server was professional, attentive, made great suggestions, and ensured that our dinners were low-sodium. We were pleasantly surprised with a birthday dessert on the house. (No discreet reminders necessary on arrival.) Food is always very well-prepared and of very high quality. Highly recommended.

    My wife and I went for dinner for our 15th anniversary. The location and view is great but the steak I had was poor and my wife sent back her fish because it wasn't cooked enough. The waiter was fine but did not provide any memorable service. You would think he would ask if we were celebrating anything as we were all dressed up? No, nothing at all. For dessert we got the choc hip cookie and biscotti platter...they weren't even home made cookies..they were store bought and just thrown on a plate. I do not recommend Grille 66.

    We went to Grille66 for my moms birthday and it was wonderful. The food was delicious, the service was great! The waiter was knowledgable about wine and was able to help pick a wine that we would like. Although I wish we were seated somewhere with a better view, the night was perfect and I would definitely recommend it to others!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 6/13/2014
    First time diner and it was amazing. Sat outside on the water, nice view of the yachts and milliondollar homes. Sommelier came to the table and helped with my wine choice. Had a Tangley Oaks cab from 2010. Ordered the buffalo mozz with tom/rst peppers, caesar salad, 8oz filet for my wife and the surf & turf for me. Randy, our server, was very pleasant & knowledgable, talked us out of the caesar stating portions were very large. This was my only complaint, mozz salad was not large enough for my appetite, but made me get dessert. App was delicious, filets were cooked perfectly lobster was sweet & delicious. Dessert = creme brulee w/ fresh fruit & a peanut butter pie. Both amazing, but could have used a gallon of milk for the pb pie. AMAZING!
