  • "Just an overrated restaurant for food in lively night life area."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I had friends I town from Texas and I always take friends visiting to my favorite restaurant in Fort Lauderdale. As usual the food and service was outstanding. Thank you!"

  • "We have been here many times and there is a specific reason: wonderful friendly and knowledgeable service, great food and atmosphere. If you are a mussels lover they don't get better than the roasted black ones here. Also great cocktails and roomy booths. What else can I say. It's a gem on las Olas with a fun vibe ."

  • "As usual the steamed mussels were incredible. The filet was perfect at medium rare. A new addition to the menu pork ossobucco was a great way to round out the offerings. On a bed of risotto it was excellent. The butterscotch bread pudding was the perfect finish with a port wine selection second to none. Bruce our waiter was on point and exactly the personality to compliment this Italian chop house."

  • "Grilled mussels appetizer was amazing! So was the filet!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "All 7 who ordered pasta it was overcooked, soft and dry, dishes with not enough sauce or very diluted sauce, dishes unpresentable"

  • "We have been to Timpano's many times and really enjoyed the dining experience. This time however, we were dissapointed. They seem to have slipped a notch. We requested a booth when we made the reservation. When we arrived, we again requested a booth for two couples. There was an empty booth but we were told by the maitre'd that he had to use the booth for 5 people. All the other booths had only 4 people. As far as the food goes, the fire roasted mussels were over done and dry. My wife ordered the Osso Buco and she said that while it was tender, it had no juice and was dry. As we left the restaurant at the end of our meal, we noticed that the booth we requested was still empty. Very dissapointing."

  • "Another incredible time at Timpano. You must try the mussels appetizer as they are the best. The Filet is always awesome as well. The service is excellent, as is the bar scene. Highly recommend eating there before going to a show at the Broward Center as it makes a good evening into a great one."

  • "You must try the mussels,they are out of ths world,the wedge salad and the spinach salad were excellent,the veal was also great,the rigatoni with veal and mushroom had thyme so I did not care for that taste"

  • "One of the best meals I have had anywhere. Mussels = unbelievable; salmon - unbelievable; ahi tuna - excellent; french onion soup - TAKE IT OFF THE MENU!!!!!!!!!!!! "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The Chef must have emptied a full salt shaker on all the food! Beautiful presentation, but inedible scallops and pasta with clam sauce. The Caesar salads were also drowned in dressing. Manager and server were excellent, but we won't go back."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "we made the mistake of dining outside. the noise level was horrendous thanks to the very loud, busy bar next door. the appetizer (mussels) was excellent. the rest of the food was just good. poor choice of sides....no potato available for a lactose intolerant diner. in fact the two choices for potatoes came frozen (per the waiter). the main entree, strip steak, was just average. people using the adjacent parking garage paraded through the restaurant, using it is a walkway."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "My husband and I eat here frequently. The steaks rival those of major steakhouses. Do not miss the mussell appetizer. Love the seating outdoors. Inside the restaurant is too loud for comfortable dining."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We a really great evening. I had noted on the reservation that we were celebrating the 2 year anniversary fom our first date. They brought out our Tiramisu with 2 candles in it and told us dessert was on the house. It really made it special for us. The food & drinks were excellent. We need to go back more often. K&J"

  • "Thanks to Chef Asher, my daughter, brother and myself had a great evening and fantastic food at Timpano. The Steaks were perfect and the chicken Marsala was excellent also. The muscles and flat-bread appetizers were wonderful as usual. Service was outstanding which capped off a great meal. "

  • "Timpano is consistently good and a fine addition to our local fare. A bit crowded and noisy during season and after 8PM for my taste!"
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Having been to Timpano in the past I chose it because I wanted to "impress" an old friend from out of town who I had not seen in ages. The bar staff and wait staff were amazing. We never sat for a moment without attention when it was needed, yet there was no "hovering". Any special requests were honored as if we were in our mother's kitchen and not in a restaurant. The quality of the food was spectaular (as usual) and I will return sooner than later. "
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. Great location and right there on Las Olas where things are happening. If your\'re looking for a fine spot to bring special friends, this is the place. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Seated at too small table for group. Had to request to be moved. Had to make numerous requests to get everything from drinks to bread to drink refills to silverware (after some cleared with apps). Two dinners came out cold and uncooked. One dinner was clearly over cooked. None had any taste. Very bland. Manager did bring new dinners out for two undercooked meals. But dinner ruined by that point. Sad. Have gone here numerous times in past. Won't go back. Maitre'd was obnoxious to guests infront of us and not very pleasant to us."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "the bread and dipping sauce we're good. The wine was very good. The service was extremely slow! The ambiance was good."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Timpano's is the rare chain that gets it right - from food to service. The roasted mussels are a longtime favorite. From there, two roads lay ahead - homemade pasta or steak - both are done really, really well. In a city known for dining options ranging from overhyped nonsense to sleepy indifference, Timpano's stands out as a solid option, offering consistently good food and real value. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Food and service were great as usual. A wonderful way to spend Easter Brunch. Very wonderful Lamb Rack.. Flavorful, rich flavor, fantastic."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The food here is great, and so is the service. It's a bit pricey but you're going to enjoy your meal, that's for sure."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "It had been four years since our last visit and nothing has changed - in a good way. Same attentive service, many of the same servers. Homemade pasta, great steaks, extensive wine list and those roasted mussels. They say it's only olive oil and sea salt but they must put something else in there to make you crave them so much!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "It was our first time at Timpano and my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. Everything was excellent, the food, the waitress, the ambiance, the service. I would definitely recommend this restaurants to family and friends. "

  • "We have been here on another vacation. We liked it a lot. This time was the same. The food was very good . The flatbread apply was fantastic and the filet was as well."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The mussels are a must have. The service and dinner were perfect. If you just want a drink, the bar is very roomy. I cannot wait to go back."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Strip steak was smaller than expected. Water glass had fly in it. Gorgonzola cheese melted on filet had plastic wrap still melted onto the cheese. Waitress was working inside and outside, so it took awhile to get her attention and there was a long lag between apps and main courses. The overall experience was disappointing and we see no reason to return given the number of better restaurants in the area."
