another great meal
Philip our server helped make our dinner at Mezzaluna an extremely enjoyable one. We started with great salads, my husband the wedge, which he loved, and I the gorgonzola salad. My husband had the evening special of the Rack of Lamb. It was prepared just to his love and to say he enjoyed every mouth full would be an under statement.I had the shrimp and Lobster Fa diablo Just the right amount of spice and the pasta was cooked al dente the way I like it.
Desert was a to die for flourless chocolate cake,
A million calories later, and two happy dinners later we can only say this was a wonderful dinner.

Better than expected
I actually didn't have high hopes for this restaurant. I thought the food would be only ok and the experience rather boring, but it was actually quite the opposite! The service was excellent and made the experience. The food was pretty good! And overall we had a great date night!

Amazing all around!
Great food in an awesome atmosphere. Well lit noise level perfect and menus even had led lights so you could read easier. Seafood salad appetizer was a special was wonderful and scallops with risotto dinner also a great choice. Lounge is comfortable with couches for a drink before or after dinner with piano music. Definitely a must and will go back in spite of the somewhat high prices.

Italian standards with swank!
This lovely restaurant will accommodate most any size group in a variety of private rooms though also has nice booths and smaller tables. We love the calamari and the fish including grilled salmon is excellent. Pasta with clams can't be beat. Lunch salads including the Cobb are delicious and crisp. Desserts are enough for two or three. Check out the daily specials as they are always good. July features lobster! Our family has enjoyed this lively restaurant for years and always suggest it to friends. They did a great job for my husbands holiday party last year so we will return again this year. And, there is easy valet parking at night and ample during the lunch hour.

Consistent as always
This is one of our favorites. When we have a free night from going to a new place, we try to get back to Bistro ( always consistent ) Mezzaluna. Food, service and ambience make this an experience that we always enjoy and have never been disappointed. The lounge is equipped with a nightly piano man who sings softly in your ears and relaxes your tensions from the work day. Comfortable large chairs and tables to gather around to relax. Eat in the lounge or enjoy one of the dining rooms but if its an outdoor evening, then go to the patio and enjoy a little more romantic atmosphere. Oh, when opened , the menu is illuminated entirely. Great idea for those of us with tired older eyes. Try it and I promise you wont be disappointed. Enjoy.

Great Place to Eat
They have the best Veal Chop Ihave ever eaten, we also ate the snapper fish and it was outstanding, crunchy and soft. Good wines.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's not cheap, but...........
the food is excellent. We had the yellow tail snapper and veal chop and they were excellent.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff goes all out to ensure you enjoy your dining experience. The food is not only delicious but the servings are generous for sharing/sampling.
I will always make it a point to visit again the next time I depart for a cruise.

All around Awesome!!!
Drinks were great, wine list and coktail options were vast. Got oysters on half shell, were perfect. Red beet salad, and lobster bisque to start out. All were very good Salad so fresh and cheese was melt in your mouth good. Our table got sea bass which was good. Lamb chops, which were great and a steak which was great also. Would highly recommend. I felt bad that the restaurant was practically empty om a saturday evening.

Lobster feast was amazing!
Fabulous dinner though we've never been disappointed at this friendly neighborhood spot. The specials are always noteworthy so we ordered the 5 lb. lobster stuffed with homemade pasta and surrounded by clams. The lobster meat was all out of the shell so easy to enjoy. My husband and I typically start with the calamari and since pasta and seafood are both great we do both and split. Desserts are plenty for two. There are cozy booths for two as well as large rounds and private rooms to accommodate all. The bar is lovely with comfortable seating so if you forget to make reservations, you're ok. Parking is ample at lunch and valet complementary at night. This neighborhood standard is consistently a winner!

We Like the Rigatoni Bolognese
We come here for the Rigatoni Bolognese - it's very good. We had been coming here for lunch but this time we came here for dinner. The dinner portions are large - took 1/3 home for lunch the next day. The bread basket has very good everything crackers, lavash and rolls. The place is beautiful and spacious. On the way out we looked in at the large bar room and the entertainment was very good. We will be back.

Our server, Hector, was very knowledgeable about the menu. He was also very attentive without hovering over us continually. The food we ordered was excellent and the espresso Martini that I had was one of the best ones I ever drank!
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The old location had gr8 food and a cool vibe. This spot had no energy and the food while good it was nothing special.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the Surf and Turf, and the Lobster was HUGE and delicious. Our server was phenomenal and have nothing bad to say!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing as always!!
A trip to Ft. Lauderdale is never complete without a stop at Bistro. Every dish was amazing, the attention to detail is fantastic and the service is incredible. Cannot go wrong with this restaurant.

Time after time, always excellent food, service and ambiance.
Once, we hosted a party there for 30+ people, in a private room ... and every single thing was still perfect !
The staff knows how to provide great service always.

Best Rigatoni Bolognese
We keep returning tor this entree for either lunch or dinner. Delicious! The waiter was forgetful - We asked for more "everything" crackers which he never brought to us. My husband was drinking a gin & tonic and asked for more tonic, but the waiter brought club soda - good thing my husband checked it out before pouring it in his drink and ruining it. When we asked for the check the waiter took a very long time then came over to clear our table and still no bill....then finally he brought it to us so we could leave. We were there on a Sunday night and not many people there so the waiter did not have too many tables to serve so that is not an excuse. Anyway we will be back and hopefully get a different waiter.
9/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
I actually ate at Bistro Mezzaluna two times during my visit to FLL area, what an amazing restaurant. Between the 2 visits my friends and I tried numerous menu items and all were perfectly delicious. However, the #1 item is definitely the Chocolate Soufflé!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great ambiance, delicious food and excellent service.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was attentive, friendly and helpful. We were served at a leisurely pace, but I think that was on purpose to allow us to enjoy the evening. Food was very good.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A delightfully remodeled and re-located 17th street Causeway favorite. Lighted menus illuminate one's choices. Wonderfully expansive wine list, very good, sizable portions of traditional (NYC) Italian fare with a Latin flavor--. Skirt steak w piles of string fries perfectly cooked; superb scallops and an excellent risotto. A nice portion of breads yet no olive oil , no roasted garlic and no bruschetta-one gets at nearby restaurants. But a very large and tasty grilled squid appetizer sufficed for the the two of us. All served with aplomb to your comfortable booth. An excellent date night choice.
9/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Attractive décor, polite staff,
Attractive décor, polite staff, knowledgeable about menu and special items. Our server, Waz, was very professional and did not rush us thru our dinner. Enjoyed the music from the lounge and will keep this on our list of top favorites. Rack of lamb special was excellent. We will be back soon!

We've had great experiences
We've had great experiences at Bistro Mezzaluna and this time was no exception. We celebrated my mom's 91st birthday and the wait staff could not have been more attentive and kind to her, joking with her and even posing for pictures with her! The food as always was great.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a Meal!!!
This restaurant was absolutely fantantastic and worth the money. From the service to the food we were pampered. Ihad the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection and my friend ordered the rack of lamb which was eaten to the bone. My husband ordered a pasta dish which was well worth it. They had an entre special of buttersquash ravioli with lobster and we were able to order it as an appetizer. Words can't describe the exquisite flavors. If you are in the area or have a special occassion or just want to treat yourself remember Bistro Mezzaluna.

The food was amazing. We had the Ahi seared tuna and the heirloom tomato salad as appetizers. The best was the lighted menu. I think more retaurants should have the same kind of menu's. Especially for us older folks. What a fabulous idea.
10/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Fun for friends
We took a friend to dinner who is moving into the neighborhood....he loved the food and says he found his new favorite spot. M the dinner was delicious and the service excellent. We had a great bottle of gavi de gavi...perfectly chilled....great oysters...raw other

Wonderful Dinner with Clients
I have been hearing great things about Bistro Mezzaluna for some time now, but had yet to try it out until this past weekend. Let me tell you, this place is GREAT! We sat in the lounge and enjoyed their oysters rockafellar (which I've never had better!) and the shrimp spring rolls. My clients, being the wine enthusiasts that they are, were very impressed with their extensive wine menu and wine cellar. Dinner was fantastic with the one of the best yellowtail snapper dishes that I have tasted and the steaks looked delicious as well. All in all, we will definitely be going back to this place--forget waiting for hours at the Las Olas restaurants!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose this restaurant on a recommendation by a salesman that we were meeting with in Ft Lauderdale. Having no knowledge of the area and it's restaurants, this couldn't have been a better recommendation!!! We were only in town for 1 night and dining at Bistro Mezzaluna was the best decision we made regarding choice of meals!!!
The food was phenomenal, as was the service. The meal, from the appetizer to the desserts was excellent!! We are still talking about how great our dinner was 2 days later!!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and services was excellent. The lobster and shrimp Fra Diavolo over linguine was very tasty. Nice size portion. Wine list has a great selection of domestic and international vintages. A separate bar area had live entertainment.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Still one of Fort Lauderdales Best!
The Food and service at BM are back at its Best.
Must be the best Italian in Town !!

Went to eat there for dinner
Went to eat there for dinner and enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine from their huge select wine list. My husband enjoyed a couple of cocktails while we waited be seated. Great bar area and live music to keep you entertained while you wait. Our server was Illija and he was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the menu and he had a great personality! The prime rib and Lobster and Shrimp Fra Diavolo was delicious. Highly recommend this place to others.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were a party of 6 and were welcomed by the Host and seated promptly and immediately asked what we would like to drink!
The drinks were kindly served and the specials of the evening announced.
Everyone was truly pleased and enjoyed everything that we ordered. All I can say is nothing works better than good company
folllowed by good service and excellent food. We did have all of the above!!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
a favorite and anytime go-to
a favorite and anytime go-to restaurant as long as it has been open
consistent, best service
this time, the bar lounge had the best music -- variety, fun, and not so noisy -- you could actually
talk to friends and hear them I believe the singer was Giovanni.
In the past, some of the lounge singers were so loud and so awful we could not stay long.

Frequent Diner and This Is Why...
My husband and I frequently dine at Bistro Mezzaluna for dinner. We have always had such great service and enjoyed ourselves very much. We recently decided to try out Mezzaluna for lunch and were pleasantly pleased. The lunch ambiance is a lot more relaxed and quiet. Everything on the menu looked very good, but the specials they offer sounded even better. I had the special for the day and my husband requested a dinner dish, which they so kindly accomodated us. The service was just as good as it is at night and we highly Bistro for lunch as well as dinner! Cheers!

Great Night Out
I have not been to Bistro Mezzaluna in over a year and am glad I came back. The wine list is packed with interesting wines you don't see everyday and I had an excellent red blend and my wife drank Prosecco which was fresh and vibrant.
She had the sea bass and I had the lamb which was perfectly prepared to our liking.
Our waiter, Was gave us plenty of time to enjoy our wine and did not rush our dinning experience which made it even more enjoyable.
The important fact about Bistro Mezzaluna is that the food and service is just as good as when it was a much smaller restaurant in a different location.
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants to have a very good restaurant experience.

Bistro Mezzaluna means Business
I headed over to Bistro Mezzaluna for a business lunch meeting, the ambiance for such was perfect. They accommodated our large group in their outside patio which was quiet and secluded. Our server was Hector and he was very polite, conscientious, and knowledgeable. The food was also very good and they had a wide variety of options to choose from. Best of all, we were able to get in and out in a timely matter. Recommend this location for businesses and taking clients.

Business dinner- perfect courteous service. Great choice of entrees, excellent wine list.
