    Lovely restaurant, unfortunately, the hostess sat us at a table where the restaurant STORED the wine glasses on a ledge directly behind us. The waiters squeezed behind me to get the glasses and the clanking of the glasses was very disturbing and distracting. Our conversation stopped every time they needed to get the glasses. I would like to add that there were other tables where we could have been seated.

    I have come to think that if and when I want a great filet, the only place in Fort Lauderdale to have it is at Grill 66. I have not as of yet had a mediocre meal there. Even the $35 Dine Out menu was more than adequate, and delicious. My tuna tartar was great with great crispy crackers, and my filet was just outstanding.

    I expected a lot given the reviews, location and prices and we got much more. We arrived early to enjoy the sunset and the room was not full however by the time we finished the room was full and noise level high. We will return on our next trip. We thought it to be on par with our favorites in LA, Las Vegas and NYC.

    I Finally found the chef from Mezzalunas . Excellent food and the best homemade bread at any table in Fort Lauderdale. Tuna tartar wonderful. The lamb chops are fantastic. The snapper is excellent and they serve a thick large fillet served vs most places serving a skinny small fillet that I would catch off my dock here.

    Took my friend here for a birthday dinner and it was fantastic...the food was good but the service was what really blew me away. Everyone was friendly, helpful and prompt. I had asked for a candle on the chosen dessert and not only did they put a candle but they made sure it was festively decorated. We had a great time and will be back

    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.

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!!!

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.

    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.
