    Stayed in Ft. Lauderdale 1 night on our way down to the keys. Booked a table here and were very happy we did. Service was fantastic, foor was great. The outside tables looked out across the street onto the beachfront and Atlantic ocean. The only drawback was sometimes the traffic made talking difficult. Other than that a wonderful experience.

    Location...location...location is the only thing this "beast" of a restaurant has going for it! The beast is overcooked and overrated! I guess they think the ocean view will draw your eyes away from the dirty floor and wobbly tables. (sad since it was practically empty when we arrived and staff clearly had time to clean it up but did not feel it necessary) Service was slow and inattentive, we were constantly looking for staff to refill our drinks. Appetizers were just ok...and the meal was over cooked to the point of being inedible. Sad really because this place could have great potential...but it just falls flat.

    Staff was friendly and attentive. Majority of the menu is small plate items. Ranging in price from $12.50 to 16.50. There are a 3-4 regular size dinner items and all 3-4 large family style plate items that require a minimum of two people to order and the price is pp. Nice variety on the menu. Went there with a family of 6 over spring break and we all enjoyed our meals.

    The old East End Grille recently received a face lift. It is now called Beauty & The Feast, a cool restaurant with a new style of dining featuring an eclectic menu and enchanting ambiance located on the lobby level of The Atlantic Hotel & Spa facing the Atlantic Ocean. Offering an alluring warm-lit atmosphere, spectacular ocean views and an enticing cocktail area, the restaurant serves a flavorful array of small plates, entrees, and family-style feast plates. Brunch was terrific - a variety of choices and a beautiful outside table facing the ocean. Definitely a must try!

    We were surprised to see this restaurant was in a hotel. We chose to sit outside on the large covered patio, which was across the street from Ft. Lauderdale beach. Due to it being dark, the view of the ocean was nonexistent. But it was a lovely evening & we did enjoy watching some of the people walking by. The 4 of us enjoyed the breads, flavored butter, appetizers & dinner very much. The service was attentive. We will return, at an earlier time to enjoy the beach view.

    They were having problems with their computer system which really delayed getting our bill to pay and payment made. It unfortunately lowered my 'service' rating but generally was happy with the restaurant, my waiter and the hostess. Crab Bisque soup tasty but way too salty, but lots of crab. Pan roasted chicken ($25) was really just a quarter chicken breast - tasty but overpriced and came with risotto. Chef's bread pudding good but the home made ice cream wasn't frozen...more like a cold cream. Valet parking free if validated by the restaurant. We sat outside facing the world go by...a little noisy at time with noisy mufflers. But, in mid February, eating outside is a treat for Canadians. Used to be called Trina's, now a bistro.

  • Good Food But Service was Lacking
    NewLocalVIP
    Dined on 2/15/2014
    The food was great, but for the price tag of $40+ dollar entrees and an automatic 18% gratuity the service we had this night was extremely lacking. Our prior experience at this restaurant was great, bith with the food and the service but this time around the service was extremely disappointing. For example: there was mass confusion over what meals were going where - our entrees where initially delivered to the wrong table, two other table appetizers where delivered to ours, and a third party's entrees were also first swung by our table. The biggest disappointment with the service by far was the fact that it took our waiter over 30mins to get us our bill, and when it did arrive it was for the wrong table.

    I went on Open Table around noon on New Year's Eve trying to find a last minute spot for dinner. Boy, am I glad I did! East End Grille was AMAZING! Had the 3 course dinner for $50 and it was well worth the money! The caprese had house-made buffalo mozzarella, the braised short rib was delicious, and the key lime a perfect ending! It was right on A1A across from the beach so the view was pretty as well. Free valet and just great service all around. Noise level was a little loud, but well worth it. GIVE IT A TRY!

    This ambitious dining spot in the elegant Atlantic Resort overlooks the ocean. The room and outdoor dining terrace both are simply but tastefully designed. The staff is professional and friendly. The menu is upscale American cuisine. The recipe concepts are good, and the execution ranges from good to very good. The serving size is large. The prices are $10 to $12 for appetizers, soups and salads. The mains are in the $30 to $40 range. For a reliably fine meal overlooking the ocean, this is a good option to consider.

    The waiter was a sweet guy, but SO slow and there was no one in the place. On the bright side, he did bring us free dessert. The place was not even half full on a Sat. night, so that was probably a clue that there are better places in the area. The food was mediocre...certainly not worth the price tag.

    We were a bit taken aback to be the only diners on a Saturday night at 7 pm, even though it was after Thanksgiving. So we thought we might have made a mistake until we tasted our dishes. Possibly the best pork chop I have ever had. The menu options were more limited than I would have expected, perhaps because they expected a small crowd. We found the fish entrees in Fort Lauderdale over all to be disappointing, possibly because we were on the beach where the restaurants cater to visitors that don't like fish.

    This is probably the 4th or 5th time that we have dined at East End Brasserie. What I love is that they constantly are tweaking the menu so you don't have to eat the same thing every time. We were probably one of 4 tables on a Friday night at 7:30 and they should be full. The servers are so knowledgeable about each dish. They brought foccacio to our table and my husband asked for plain bread. They made it fresh for him, apologizing that it would take 10 mins, but it came piping hot and flavorful. I decided on the locally caught grouper served on swiss chard. A rare find for me and one of my favorites. My husband opted for the filet mignon which he insisted that I try. Mcuh better than Capital Grill or Morton's by far. Try it out!

Since the first time I visited the food has been absolutely delicious and the service has been 5+ Stars! We were so thrilled the first time we went with our server, Chris, that we decided we absolutely would request him each and every time. He guides us through both the wine list and menu taking into account our personal taste requests every time . His recommendations are always spot on and do not disappoint. Food is always amazing, atmosphere is great, and service is top notch. This place rocks

The view was great - though a little loud sitting right on a busy street, but it was lovely. Will go next time during the day when not dark - view would be better. The carrot cake was fantastic and the plantain bruschetta was inventive and good.

    Took advantage of TravelZoo certificate dinner for two. Very nice menu and we loved all the items we selected: Duck Confit and a roasted pumpkin salad for starters followed by Sea Bass and Filet for our entrees. Unfortunately we were informed by our server that the restaurant will be completely redone over the next month or two...New chef & new menu.. No real specifics on menu style were given...more of a wait and see explanation. We will keep tabs on the progress over the next couple of months and see what they come up with. Would love to add this place to our rotation of weekend dinning choices.

    Restaurant was excellent. Not only was the food excellent but what really makes this place special is the attention that the entire staff pays to their customers. We never saw any staff member without a smile on their face. They greeted everyone with an approach that said "We are so glad to see you. The restaurant is in The Atlantic Hotel where we stayed for two nights. We found that same attitude throughout the hotel. We had dinner there two nights and breakfast two mornings. The meals were all of high quality and plenty of food. This turned out to be so great since we were there to celebrate our anniversary, and this was our first time at this establishment.

    Beautiful scenery, great service and waiter. Food was very good as well. Portions are good. Based on the small appetizer portions, i thought the main entree would be small but that is not the case. I do think the restaurant is extremely pricey for the menu. I guess it is part of the hotel and across from the beach so they feel it is warranted.Dinner fior two for $136 is VERY pricey. Perhaps early bird specials, weekday specials or locals deals would bring more people in! I know, I would return if prices were more reasonable. I even saw a Pizza Hut delivery to the hotel! Clue that your prices are way too high even for those at the hotel.

The sea bass was wonderful and was especially delicious with the sweet and tart passion fruit sauce. My husband ordered the Texas rib eye and it was better than the one we recently had at NYY Steakhouse. Overall, it was a wonderful evening and we would definitely return.

Christopher was our server on this particular night and could not have been more friendly or professional. One note they do add the service to your check (18%) which I have no problem. I know some folks do, but I have never felt cheated on the quality of attention and normally leave more as I did on this visit. This was my 5th or 6th visit and it just keeps getting better !

    Based on the overwhelming positive Open Table reviews, we selected this place. It was a horror show. The six entrees dribbled out over the space of 10 minutes, half of which were stone cold. The pumpkin salad appetizer was inedible. The visible kitchen was total chaos with waiters standing in line waiting for dishes to emerge. My only suggestions are if you're a waiter there, I'd look for another gig. If you're the owner, I'd look for another chef. Never again.
