Bistro Mezzaluna has been a long time favorite of Fort Lauderdales discerning local diners and snowbirds alike. Located in a magnificant freestanding location at 1821 SE 10th Ave. (just a few short blocks away from our original location).
Under the watchful eyes of executive chef Jose Diaz, we maintain our reputation for well-crafted bistro fare. Add to that an award winning wine list (arguably the best in the county) and exceptional service and you will soon see why Bistro Mezzaluna has become synonymous with great dining.

The eclectic menu boasts such delights as ; U.S.D.A. prime steaks, homemade pastas and the freshest seasonal seafood including colossal stone crab claws. Each and every dessert is made on the premise. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the seasoned service staff will make you know that you belong.

Service was very good, but a bit curt (ie. waiter already rushing, walking away, while we still were requesting items). Other than that, spectacular!

Huge fan. My wife and I always love everything we order. Food is the best. A great wine list and some of the best service you'll find in Fort Lauderdale.

Ate outside. Wonderful and blissful quiet. Actually had a conversation without screaming. The modern concept of dining in a boiler factory leaves me turned off. Good food and attentive staff meant a trifecta of a restaurant experience.

From the moment we were greeted by the Matre de we were treated like our little table of 3 weren’t as important as the larger parties that were scattered through the restaurant.
My brother and I are 6’2” and 6’6” respectively, his wife is petite, they stuck us in a booth when we specifically asked for a table. So uncomfortable. Then the waiter who was clearly engaging with other tables mumbled inaudibly and was poor at best. When he brought the desert menu, he literally tossed 1 menu in between 3 of us. We were so disappointed. The only saving grace was the veal chop, it was great, though i wont go back and would never recommend this place. If you want a great meal and impeccable service, go to Grille 66 where we went the day before.

A beautiful, and very fancy fine dining restaurant. The bar has live jazz music and great cocktail servers. The outdoor patio, where we ate, is quiet and has a beautiful fountain. Servers were great and prompt. Prices are high, but the food we had was great. Wonderful atmosphere and while we visited the restaurant was decorated for Christmas, which was beautiful. A great choice for a special occasion dinner.

I would recommend a friend but would suggest they sit in the bar. Your main eating area is entirely too noisy and I would suggest they go early.

The food was perfect...outstanding....delicious!!

The service not so much. I think the waiters and their assistants need a lot more training. They got the orders confused and weren't nearly as attentive as they have been in the past. I also felt, given the cost of these wonderful dinners, waiters should not interrupt conversations but should stand at the table until they are acknowledge;. or they should clear their throats and say" excuse me" before rudely interrupting conversations.

It was our choice to sit in booth that light above was out but it felt like our waiter kept forgetting we were there. Had to ask for bread twice, waved our waiter down 3x to ask for pepper for salad , silverware etc but we still had a good dinner, snapper still the best!

Live entertainment when we were there, felt like we had the whole place to ourselves too. Very little tables filled, that was the only thing off. SUCH an amazing service team and food experience. This will not be our last time! Special occasion pricing but food is definitely worth it

We made reservations for dinner and when we arrived we were directed to a comfortable booth. The restaurant set up was a bit strange, and the staff out front seemed more chatty amongst each other than professional, but it was all good.

The food was really great and our server was very good and entertaining as well. It was not too busy when we arrived, but by the end of our meal the restaurant and bar were packed. Food highlights:
lobster bisque
seafood pasta
rigatoni bolognese

We would definitely return next time we were in the Ft. Lauderdale area.

Fantastic dinner and service was awesome However
I. did ask the price of the steak and lobster and I was OK with the price.
BUT, I was offered the jumbo stone crab claws as a appetizer with mustard sauce and it was really good but I was shocked when the bill came. Waiter never quoted price and I never asked. I think he should have said something like, just to let you know the claws will be about $40-$50 each.
I think the claws were 8 oz each, so one each is plenty in my party of 2, but it was like $ 48 for each claw !! so it was like $96 a pound ??? I should have asked before ordering so beware and ask. Other than that worth every penny.
