Some of the best food we had in Ft. Lauerdale. Also we did not like table we were seated at and they were very accommodating to offer different table.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Plantain crusted grouper was so light and just delicious with the squash side dish. My husband had the crab stuffed shrimp which was also excellent! We will be back.

Wife and I took our two kids to 101 Ocean for our Anniversary. I would describe the food as very good, but our overall experience didn't meet expectations. We made a reservation and the first table we were seated at was on top of the check-in desk, The table we were relocated to was next to the bathroom entrance. Both high-traffic tables in arguably the worst spots in the restaurant. And the place was almost empty (inside) when we arrived but the vacant tables were set-up for 6. By the time our food arrived, almost all the round tables had been squared and were seating parties of 4 or less.

The Men's bathroom was fine, but my wife and daughter refused to use the Women's.

Really disappointing.

Food was good. Service was friendly but slow...it felt like we were an afterthought from beginning to end.

I requested outside dining on my reservation and they never saw that. They squeezed in 6 people on a table for five. Very tight. My fish tacos were
A little dry because they were overcooked.everyone else said there food was good

My steak sandwich was amazing. I have a dairy allergy so picking a restaurant to accommodate is not always easy. Their menu on line was different when I got there (due to covid they said) so that was a little upsetting since I picked off the on line menu. But the waitress worked with me to find something that would work and it was really delicious. I would definitely eat there again. Everyone in my party of 4 was happy with their food. We sat inside and it was not crowded at all.

Great location. Parking can be a little difficult. Take an Uber or try your luck at the parking lot next door. Food was good, service was great, prices are reasonable.

This restaurant is a hot spot social gathering and is adhering to protocols needed for current health crises. The food is delivered quickly and is deliciously prepared at a good price. The atmosphere is consuming to the mind but the food and drink still register high in value. Thank you

Table was ready but otherwise service super slow. Sat at 7:15, ordered drinks and apps right away and food before 7:30. Dinner didn’t arrive u til 8:45. Waitress kept apologizing saying kitchen was backed up over and over. Should have comp’d a drink or appetizer but nothing. Even complained to manager and Nothing.

Poor customer service. A comment from manager with either a comp’d drink, appetizer or a dessert goes a long wAy and nothing here.

Get that it’s spring break and they’re busy which is what he said but every other restaurant on the strip we’ve eaten at had no problem. Aruba twice the size much more efficient and food was better there.

We always enjoy going to 101 Ocean. For the past eight years we have come to 101 Ocean for our granddaughter‘s birthday. She loves tradition and this is her birthday tradition. She and her family live in Iowa so this is always a special time for us. The service was great and everything was perfect. We would have preferred eating outside but unfortunately the weather was not cooperating. And it was nice to be able to make a reservation through open table.

Made an 8pm reservation for outside seating but was told when we arrived that only inside was available and that 101 does not take reservations for outside. Had I been told this I would have gone elsewhere.

Would recommend for a fun evening out - service was “ok” - 1 meal was ravioli and dinner guest raved - the calamari was very good - salad was ho hum - stuffed shrimp was poor, dry and stuffing had no taste.

Stopped for an outdoor lunch after a morning at the beach. The small table outside was great for people watching. Our server was friendly and her timing was excellent. We were a party of 2 and each ordered a flatbread. (Wild mushroom and taco) Each were very tasty. The only negative comment I have is they NEED to STOP using plastic straws! PLEASE!
