    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    We went here to celebrate my 40th birthday which was noted in the reservation however not one person mentioned it the entire dinner! The food was average, the service was average, but the view was stellar. That is the only reason we would recommend this restaurant or return. We sat on one of the wooden decks by the sand dunes which was about as romantic as you could get with the waves crashing a few feet away. It was really disappointing however that no one cared to read the reservation notes which asked for a romantic table as we were celebrating a milestone birthday and had traveled 1500 miles to Fort Lauderdale to do so. I am thankful the rooms were booked as we stayed at the Ritz which was incredible when it came to service.

    The Hostess was wonderful.. I was nervous about eating outside on such a warm night but she assured me it would be fine. After being seated, and ordering our drinks, she came back to make sure I was comfortable and offered to move us inside if I wasn't. I thought that was extremely nice of her. The waitress was prompt and knowledgeable about the menu and the specials for the evening. I had the Aha-Tuna which was excellently prepared although, a bit too hot for me due to the amount of cracked black pepper in the coating. My wife had the Salmon with Eggplant which she loved. Our daughter had the Snapper special which she claimed was "Amazing". She also tried a drink recommended by our waitress called a "Pelican Brief" that was delicious !

    There's a major construction / renovation in progress at the hotel. It's pretty noisy, and sight of construction is not appealing for an upper-class restaurant. Dining inside with boarded windows was pointless, so we moved outside to the patio. But the morning sun practically scorched us. There should have been awnings or umbrellas, which there was none. Instead there was a industrial size fan blowing, which added to the already too high noise level. Definitely not a good choice for breakfast or daylight dining. We've had much memorable experience last time we dined in the evening.

    The setting is beautiful, especially if you dine on the "dunes" as they call it. Unfortunately the dunes were closed when we were there as there were not enough people (3 tables of people dining outside throughout the evening). The food was ok, but nothing more to make you come back. Same for the service. The waiter was nice, but not very knowledgeable of wines for example. We would probably come back with some friends for the view, maybe for lunch rather than dinner though.

    We have been here several times but this was the first time back in a couple of years. The outdoor dining is RIGHT on the beach ... can't get much closer. The food is excellent, which was the case in our last experiences, but this time the service matched the food. Very attentive, including completely understanding food allergies of one of the diners. We'll be back.

    Set right on the ocean, I happened to have breakfast earlier in the day, then a light dinner that evening. The view is wonderful: the Atlantic at your finger tips. However, the food - mine at least - was forgettable. I decided on the mussels: they were tiny and the broth not particularly appetizing. Too bad. The service was earnest. Earlier in the day, my omelet was served dry and lukewarm and the service was lamentable. I hope others' experiences have been better. But the restaurant has a long way to go.

    The service, food and atmosphere was not as expected from the hotel's website. Food was pre-cooked and over priced for the quality and content since entrees (more than $27 each) do not come with any sides which are an additional $7-$10. Drinks were good. Would not recommend.

    You cannot beat the ocean view and outdoor dining on the veranda. The food was good but would not rate it any higher than that.......and yes, you do pay for the view. We went there with another couple and our bill was about $225 with tax and tip. Was a bit annoyed that they tacked on a $14 fee for valet. Dining room dinner menu is overrated and a bit pricey. Go to the pub side and enjoy the same view outdoors with a less expensive menu.

    We both ordered drinks, an appetizer to share, salads and entrees. When my partners drink came out the waiter apologized for the long wait because the drink had been made incorrectly. We should have left at this point. Our salads and appetizer came out at the same time. We ordered baked goat cheese. When asked what we are to eat it with the waiter said to just eat it with a fork or he could bring bread. The salads were good. My partner ordered medium down filet. It came out very well done. When he complained they said they would prepare it correctly. The second time it came out it was cooked on the outside and RAW in the middle. We had enough. The manager was nice enough to comp our dinner but we won't be back again

    Ocean 2000 in the very nice pelican hotel is one of the prettiest I've ever been in Dining outside looking at the ocean is just remarkable. the service was outstanding and not rushed However the food was good not great. The steak was supposed to be cooked to medium came out well done the very attentive waiter saw this and took it back and came back with another which was so rare that I was only able to eat around the edges(I didn't want to waste another steak) I would highly recommend this restaurant because I no they would have taken that steak back till I was happy with it.

    I reserve this restaurant for a birthday dinner for my girlfriend and I. The setting was great, right along the beachside. We could see and hear the ocean, which was nice. On March 19, they were observing the turtle nesting season, so the restaurant had to keep the light very low. This made seeing the menu difficult, but we used our cellphone, table candle, and the restaurant also provided a small flashlight. Everything was great for this evening and restaurant, the only thing is my girlfriend's entrée, shrimp something, was very fresh (not in a good way). I ordered the snapper which was pretty good, but probably a little fresh as well. I also had the asparagus soup, which was great. All in all, it was great experience.
