Delicious with few exceptions...
Wonderful food overall. Lamb was a bit dry but tasty as we're the mashed potatoes that accompanied it. The stew was amazing although the shells and grit at the bottom of the bowl did take away a bit from the dish. Brussel sprouts were extremely tasty surprisingly. The shrimp ceviche was delicious although more like a salad than a true ceviche. Dessert was truly fabulous - cupcake and cobbler I believe it was. Only down side was the cost of the wine bottles. Way overpriced. Will definitely return and would order everything again except the perhaps the lamb.

A gem of a find in a mall
A gem of a find in a mall setting. The food was superb. We shared the vegetable platter as an appertizer...Yum!

Owner & Fantastic Chef "Tim"
Owner & Fantastic Chef "Tim" is wonderful. Enjoy the creative preparations which are simply delightful and reasonably priced. The grilled vegetable plate appetizer is devine; as are their lamb chops. And the pistachio crusted salmon is a must, as are reservations on a weekend.

My girlfriend from the area
My girlfriend from the area recommended this restaurant. I don't live in the area so was open to her suggestions. The food ended up being amazing and we had the sweetest couple next to us celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. They said they chose to have the dinner experience in which the restaurant brings out lots of different samples. It looked fabulous from our table. THe staff is extrememly professional and our food came out very quickly.

Everything was wonderful from
Everything was wonderful from the moment we stepped in the door to the last delicious bite of creme brulee.The rack of lamb was one of the best I have ever eaten and the service impeccable. Pricey but you get what you pay for.

Finally Fine Dining In Plantation
The mustard seed bistro consistently delivers an outstanding dining experience.
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
If you live in Plantation you are very lucky. The Mustard Seed is amazing. The food is delicious, the staff is friendly and helpful. If you don't live in Plantation, don't let the location fool you, it's a neighborhood restaurant that could be in a major city and would still be very popular. It is the best!!!!!
5/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Once again Mustard Seed amazes. Always an enjoyable time with family with great food and service.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Sophisticated, gem located in Plantation. I loved the exquisitely prepared duck and my guests very much enjoyed their steak choices. A delightful wine list and a beautiful dessert completed the experience. Service is impeccable. A great dining experience from beginning to end. Highly recommend!
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was great, the decor lacks any charm or character. I felt like the staff was intentionally stuffy, but they were very nice. Decent but not large wine list, no other liquor served.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hidden bistro with good food
It was a good find for date night. Stuffed Figs were awesome. Didn't get bruschetta but looked amazing, next time... Only downfall is close proximity to other tables, this is why I could see my neighbors Bruschetta so well.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
When checking into our hotel nearby, we were given a list of unimpressive restaurants as good places to go. CSo we checked Open Table and found the Mustard Seed Bistro. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. Very good food and wine.
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time guest and loved it!
Great little hidden spot. One of not the best restaurant I've been too in Fort Lauderdale. And I lived here 18 years so tried a few.
Food was fantastic, salmon and my wife had a halibut.
Great service as well and we will be back soon and often.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Mustard Seed was a great find in a west Broward dining scene dominated by chain restaurants. My wife and I both enjoyed our entrees - and there are plenty of good entree options to choose from. The linguini and clams is as good as you'll find anywhere. Don't forget to reserve a cupcake for desert!
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Music was a little too loud and it was too dark to see my food. I would go for lunch next time.
I had a delicious salmon and my Husband had the filet, which he said was delicious as well.
I had the cocoanut cupcake. Mmmmm.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant is small and reserved but we had a great dinner and the service was impeccable. Dessert was Delicious!

thoroughly enjoyed the complete dining experience. From the outstanding service that Jonathon provided to the excellent food preparation and delivery- nothing but sensational.

Great locals place, great find
We found this restaurant through OpenTable and new nothing about it other than from the reviews which was excellent. And accurate, as we had a delightful dinner both in the food and service
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great change of pace
We usually eat here at lunchtime. Always enjoy the food as it's consistently delicious. This was our first dinner experience and it was like a "new" place. Very romantic and quiet. Food never disappoints. Won't be our last visit for dinner!!! Service is great too!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Dinner - didn't miss a note!
Fabulous food and service. Second visit and it was better than the first. From appetizers, salad, entree and dessert - each one exceeded our expectations. The spinach and arugula was refreshingly light and the rack of lamb was a hit. Don't forget to get a cupcake to go Looking forward to the next visit!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was an awesome time to celebrate our anniversary with my wife...food tastes great, every ingredient used is evident in its freshness and compliments each other!
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome dinner choice
This is an example of good reviews on OpenTable. I did have a recommendation from the concierge at the hotel, but I then consulted OpenTable which logged very high reviews. I agree. Our service was awesome. Food was excellent. I would definitely return on future business trips.
8/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
My wife recently had lunch
My wife recently had lunch at Mustard Seed and told me it was wonderful, so we went for dinner. We shared a wonderful shrimp ceviche, which was a bit different than the usual ceviche...more raw veggie/salad, and wonderful! Than I had the Peruvian fish stew. Having been to Peru, I found it authentic and extremely good. My wife had swordfish and told me it was the best she ever had.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for lunch and dinner!
This unassuming little bistro delivers amazing cupcakes, wonderful lunches and terrific dinners. Lunch is loud and busy so be prepared but salads are excellent as are sandwiches and specials. We loved the pistachio encrusted salmon, brussel sprouts and skirt steak last night! Friends enjoyed the fish special and short ribs. Evenings allow for easy conversation and dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Sadly, we didn't pre-order cupcakes so they were sold out. We followed Mustard Seed from the smaller previous location and would love to see them consider a Las Olas or East side location. Good food and service!

This was our third time and
This was our third time and it continues to be a gem. Food was fantastic and service was great. Tables are close but excellent food and wine out weight the closeness.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was amazing.....
My dinner, as well as everyone's dinner at the table was absolutely wonderful. The waiter was attentive, but there was a slight problem with the bill...which was promptly corrected. The restaurant is in a somewhat run down strip mall, but once you enter the restaurant it has lots of atmosphere and personality. Definitely would recommend.

You will not know what to
You will not know what to expect when you park in this little, old plaza. The Mustard Seed is a gem!! The food is interesting and delicious. The service is outstanding (thanks, Bruce). And the dining room is romantic and comfortable. We really enjoyed the evening.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great services staff, strong basic menu and imaginative daily specials make Mustard Seed a must-go.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't be fooled by the outside
When we first arrived at the Mustard Seed Bistro we thought it was closed as it is rather dark looking from the outside and to boot it is in a strip mall that is also dark. The prices are very reasonable and the food is ample and amazing. My friend and I shared the rack of lamb special and my husband had the steak special. We shared a bottle of cava and for an appetizer we had the crab cakes and the crispy brussel sprouts.
The staff was very attentive and the establish has a nice atmosphere from the inside.
If you are ever in the area I understand they have an amazing breakfast and I can attest the dinner menu.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were pleasantly surprised by our experience at the Mustard Seed Bistro. The food was outstanding and the service was attentive and inconspicuous. The only problem we encountered was coffee was unavailable because their machine wasn't working. Overall, a very good experience and a terrific alternative to the chain restaurants.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is still, the BEST DUCK in SOuth Florida. My wife loved the Sea Bas special.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Strip Mall Spot in Town:)
Mustard Seed consistently delivers food quality above expectations. They have a great wine list with knowledgeable servers to help find the perfect selection.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
So many choices .....which was a go
Usually when I go out...one item on the menu hits me but on Wednesday...I had to choose from three...went with the lamb...delicious
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great, lately a bit inconsistent
Long time regular customers, last two trips were disappointed in at least one of the entrees at our table, which isn't the usual experience. Over-cooked, under-sauced scallops on gummy pasta one night, dry and tasteless short ribs another. Vast majority of apps & main plates are excellent, just choose wisely and make sure you are clear in ordering -- i.e., "Please don't overcook the scallops and could I have a bit of extra sauce, please." BTW, both experiences came when chef Tim was not in the house and we all ordered off the specials of the night...
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and excellent service
First time at the Mustard Seed after hearing others speak for highly of it. It certainly lived up to what I had heard. The food was excellent and the portions were pretty large for a fine dining place. The rigatoni with chicken, portobello, spinach, goat cheese and pine nuts wonderfully as was the peppercorn encrusted double cut pork chop. Very nice place.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a find
Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Everything we orderd was delicious. The brussel sprouts appetizer is to die for!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Treated like if we were special
The team there really goes above and beyond to make your dining experience special. Thank you.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great hidden gem
Tucked away in a strip mall, the food and service here was outstanding. Took my wife here for our anniversary - a perfect evening.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food Good times
The meals were suberb from the crispy duck to the succulent sea bass. Save room for a cupcake
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went to the Mustard Seed to celebrate our anniversary. This is the first time we had been there. We were greeted right away. The waiter was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The food was very good. At the end of dinner they surprised us with an anniversary desert. Very thoughtful. The only negative experience was the table next to us. Unfortunately there was a man with a rather loud voice, whether naturally or due to alcohol I don't know. His group tried to keep his voice level down. Other than that I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys good food and attentive waiters.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was amazing and the daily
Food was amazing and the daily homemade cupcakes are the best I've ever had. I cant think of enough positive adjectives to describe the food.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Charming and Refined
You wouldn't know it from the outside but inside is a fine dining establishment with an elegant ambiance and a marvelous menu. The food and service were both outstanding.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice B day
I went there for dinner with some friends to celebrate my birthday, we ate delicious, had a lovely chat, our waiter was so kind. It was almost empty, maybe because it was on black friday. So we enjoy the evening. I feel like a did a great decision by choosing this restsurant.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food! Great cupcakes! Great wine selection! Great service!
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a great meal!
This was our first time dining here, we will definitely be going back. There were four in our party and everyone's meal was excellent. Great service and ambiance.
12/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the grilled vegetable appetizer to the perfectly creamy bisque soup, perfectly cooked steak, and flourless chocolate dessert we've decided that this is our new favorite neighborhood restaurant. Hiding in an unimpressive strip mall, the Mustard Seed Bistro far exceeded our expectations.
12/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have been for lunch and enjoyed
Have been for lunch and enjoyed it but dinner was amazing. Will definitely be back. :D
