Via Luna at The Ritz-Carlton
Fabulous night!We love this restaurant and we had a great Mother's Day dinner at Via Luna on Sunday night. The service and the food were exceptional. We were with our 2 sons (3 and 6 y. o.) They loved the kids menu and were very happy and quiet during the entire dinner. We enjoyed the fabulous atmosphere, great decor and tasty dishes. Fried calamari appetizer was very good. The signature margaritas were delicious and good size. My husband had the duck confit w pasta for the main corse. It's his favorite dish at this place and it was perfect, as always. I had New England scallops and it was also really tasty. Kids Mac & Cheese and Chicken tenders were homemade style and our picky eaters were really enjoying both meals. We will definitely return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner spotHad a lovely evening siting outside and enjoying a delicious dinner.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBeach,LocationSitting outside with ocean view was fabulous.....the food excellent and well presented and service exceptional.

We had ordered a Pinot Noir which was out of stock so Michael had recommended another Pinot Noir which was fantastic. The name of the wine was Cocabella. We ordered a variety of food all of which were great. I would highly recommend Via Luna.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful and delicious CapreseBeautiful and delicious Caprese Salad.

Eat i or out...both work...and lunch is a bargoooon!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific restaurant with exceptionaTerrific restaurant with exceptional service. Beautiful views of the ocean from all tables.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI will ALWAYS go back.My meal was EXCELLENT from start to finish. The olive oil whipped potatoes are to die for :-) Sitting on the patio of Via Luna is the only way to dine here. You get to watch all of the people on the boardwalk.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA great view of the Ocean,A great view of the Ocean, outdoor seating raised off the walkway, and a service staff that is top notch, Via Luna is a great location within a great location, Ft Lauderdale. The only complaint is the outdoor lighting, which we were told was due to the sea turtles. Evidently, if the lighting was anything but the awful yellow bulbs, the turtles would try to cross the street and risk death, rather than spawning on the beach. Long story short, the yellow lights make the food look horrendous, but the taste is superior... I suggest eating indoors, and having cocktails on the patio.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNestled in the Ritz Carlton,Nestled in the Ritz Carlton, across the street from Ft. Lauderdale beach, we had a delicious broiled salmon dinner. We opted for the patio, which was a good decision on a balmy Friday evening. Magnificent meal impeccably done the Ritz Carlton can way.2/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated my birthday andCelebrated my birthday and they treated me like royalty. Amazing food, champagne and lots of complmentary goodies.
So special.12/14/2012 12:00:00 AMThe food was ok, the serverThe food was ok, the server was tremendously friendly, attentive and knowledgable. One complaint is the outdoor lighting - we sat as a party of four on the 'patio' facing the ocean - was very nice. However, the outdoor lighting, turned on around 7 PM was absolutely horrific. The idea of Via Luna is a moonlight guide for birthing turtles; I get that. However, yellow overhead lighting is absolutely awful for food service... If you are eating, stay inside. Having cocktails for a fantastic ocean view, sit outside.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
