A word from MOJO
mojo has food, spiritual and sexual connotations and after one visit, you too can attest to the fact that the restaurant is quite aptly named. Chef owned and operated, Domenick Falcione has not only created an inviting space to go with his creative food but his second passion, abstract art, allows visitors to experience his work between bites. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, full service bar with signature martinis, a botiquey wine list and specials that change daily keep both new and returning costumers excited.

    Great art work all over the restaurant and bar. Mojo's is in a strip plaza on US1 so the outside is no indication of the inside. The atmosphere excudes fun and I haven't ordered an entre from the menu yet as the specials are always so interesting. I had a soft shell crab with berries and rice. It was like havinng desert as your main course. They have many fun martinis but the filthy is my personal favorite. It can be noisy during happy hour but you can get a tahle for two in the back if you want. The acoustic guitarist playing on Friday night was perfect background to the meal.

    We really enjoyed the food. It tasted great. Service was prompt. It was not crowded. There was a wonderful guitar player. But - I had kids with me. I do not recommend this a place for kids. Cost is expensive, but again, the food tasted wonderfully. I recommend the place for fine food, but not for kids.

    Was looking for a different restaurant than the usual and found a gem! Had a family guest from out of town and didn't want to risk our evening on a new place but glad I did. Food was fresh, excellent prep, nicely plated. Decent portions. Menu has good variety. Waiter was attentive, knew the menu and kitchen well. My girlfriend mentioned she was trying to avoid carbs and the waiter made special trip back to the table to tell her he has or waiting in kitchen if she wants - but is following her wishes by not bringing it to table! A waiter that anticipates and thinks? In S Florida? Awesome. Live instrumental music was nice touch. Added demension to already great meal. Will be back for sure.

    Looking for a place while away and came across this so we gave it a shot. We were a large group and the service was great - attentive but not over bearing. Pretty eclectic menu, so we tried some new things, shared some discuses and everything was good. What I really liked is that it was in an everyday strip shopping center, but when you went inside, you felt you were somewhere else.

    This little gem is in a non-assuming strip mall. As you enter the doors, you will be in for a surprise but it's kitschy décor and freshness. The food and service were amazing. They went out of their way to walk us through the menu and let us know about the restaurant. Great little neighborhood gem for sure! www.ACoupleofKidds.com

    My second time dining here and with friends who have dined here previously. We all had a very good meal. We were seated promptly. The waitress was very personable and attentive. The menu had a nice variety and prices were reasonable. Filet mignon, mahi mahi and lamb chop special were all very good. The pound cake and blueberry cobbler deserts were very good as well. I look forward to coming again.

    We always enjoy trying new places. After looking online, we stumbled upon MOJO. So, I booked a table for 6 on a Saturday night. Once we arrived, it was a pleasant atmosphere. We were immediately greeted and seated. The waitress was attentive throughout the meal. She gave us the specials...all sounded great. We ordered drinks and appetizers. All came out perfect. Once dinner was ordered, we sat and enjoyed the acoustic guitar player. All meals came out and were amazing!! The owner came by to make sure we were happy with the meal/service. He was truly interested. Overall a great night and would most definitely return without hesitation.

    We made our reservation with anticipation of a special meal with a great ambiance and special experience. In reality, we had delicious dinners with adequate service but no sense of warmth or graciousness. Our wait person was cheery, but not as attentive as I would have expected. After dinner plates were removed and before desserts were served, it was obvious that the table needed a quick wipe down, but our server failed to do so. Still, we would we give Mojo another try. maybe we just hit an off night.

    This little gem has become one of our favorites over the last couple of years. In an unassuming small strip building, once you walk thru the blue doors you enter a world of comfort. With a nice bar, live music (sedate single musician plays low key, soothing sounds), beautiful décor and the owner's artwork, this restaurant is one of the better eaterys in Fort Lauderdale. The service is always fun and attentive, the menu always interesting and diverse. We often take out-of-town guests with us, as we did this last visit. Try it...you'll like it.

    PJsFoodReVu4U
    Dined on 5/2/2014
    I have been vacationing in Ft Lauderdale for several several years now and recently made a permanent move. When Mojo first opened it was the hot spot, the place to be. Reservations were hard to get, the music was flowing out the front door, people were waiting with cocktails in the entrance to be seated, the place had a vibe. The food was equally creative and had an edge. My most recent visit was so disappointing. The vibe was gone, very few people in the restaurant and the food was mediocre. For so few people in the restaurant you would think that our service would've been better and more attentive. My hope is that Mojo will find its mojo again and re-create itself. A new menu and a new interior décor may be needed to save Mojo.

    Nothing better than visiting a new city and stumbling across a great dining experience. The service was great; attentive without feeling rushed. Menu had great selection and reasonably priced. Soup, salad, two entrees, a drink each and a nice tip and we cashed out around $90. Duck breast was done to perfection and the glaze and chorizo stuffing on the pork chop were so very good. Would go back again.

    This is our favorite restaurant in the Fort Lauderdale area. Consistently good, it just seems to get better and better. The menu seems just a little limited to me, but when you add in the nightly specials, there is always something for everyone. From something as simple as a caesar salad, to a complicated tasting brie with spiced strawberries, the appetizers were superb. Filet tips were incredibly tender and tasty, accompanied by a buttery serving of garlic mashed potatoes, and a creative salad of tomatoes, peppers and pomegranate seeds. And we ordered a spectacular bottle of wine to go along with. They have a guitar player most nights, who is perfect for the space and the ambience. MOJO knows what it is about.

    Excellent food, thoughtfully prepared and optimally timed. The pace of the courses was just right - permitting time for conversation and to enjoy the terrific guitar player. Each dish was a step above in terms of the flavors and and seasoning. The meatball appetizer and calamari appetizer were exceptional. I really enjoyed Chiken Milli which was delicious and Paleo friendly. The gnocchi and sausage was deemed "amazing" and clams and linguini "wonderful". Generous portions, good service and immaculately clean. We will be back!
