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.

This restaurant used to be our favorite when we’d visit Fort Lauderdale. It’s still good, but not up to the standards it once had. In our two visits this time, one waiter seemed to be going through the motions while the other used canned platitudes. In the second visit, we felt rushed even though the restaurant wasn’t busy. The entrees were served before we took our last bites of the appetizer. We were in and out of the place in 75 minutes, from appetizer through dessert and the bill. Also, for a fine dining establishment, the rock music in the background didn’t seem to fit. On the plus side, the food was prepared very well.

The restaurant was nice enough to allow us to change our reservation time last minute, although we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated upon arrival. The indoor dining ambiance was a little musty and dingy. Server was very nice but entrees took well over an hour before they were brought out to the table. Ahi tuna was bland and dry. The steak was a bit fatty. The lobster bisque soup could have contained more lobster for the price. Overall a disappointing experience not worthy of a return visit.

Love Bistro Mezzaluna but for the first time, waiter service was not as good as usual. Waiter did not seem invested in providing the usual excellent service we get. Never brought bread, did not refill water, did not check on us and we waited for ever for check. On positive side, we had terrific service as usual from Mike at the bar before dinner.

It was our first time dining on the outdoor patio area, very pleasant! The menu was a limited version of what it used to be pre-Covid, but still very good. I missed the oysters on the half shell, but not the restaurant’s fault. Our waiter, Phil, was great!

A wonderful place for our Christmas Eve dinner. We sat outside on the patio beside the fountain. Our food was delicious, especially the veal chop and snapper dishes. Service was impeccable. We be going back.

Hidden pleasure in Fort Lauderdale,beautiful outdoor dining if you choose, with water fountain and lovely greenery, palm trees. Next time would like to have pre cocktail while piano plays indoors. Menu items are reasonable via lighted menus at table side. Waiters serve elegantly.

This was highly recommended by friends and now I know why! Friendly greeting, outstanding service and gorgeous ambience in and out. We were taken care of by Ilya who couldn’t do enough for us. The food was absolutely 5-star! I can’t wait to go back!! This is a “must” experience. Thank you so much Bistro Mezzaluna…..see you soon!

I live close to the restaurant and based on the reviews decided to try it rather than the great Italian restaurants in Fort Lauderdale..basically because they were the only one who had space last minute on a Saturday night. Now I know why. So overrated based on the reviews. The definition of “quantity not quality”. Average service and very loud with 2 big birthday tables. Definitely wouldn’t go back and definitely wouldn’t recommend. Sorry but I say it as it is !

Food was good, and abundant. It was a bit expensive, but not outrageous. Good server, but he spoke a little too fast, with an accent, especially with his mask.

We got there at 6:30 and the restaurant was not crowded - used to love this place. We ordered appetizers and they were good. Dinner arrived immediately, very rushed. Prime rib - which was highly recommended by our server was done too well and wasn’t even tasty, very bland. Very expensive for what we got in. Food quality and service.
