Bistro Mezzaluna has been a long time favorite of Fort Lauderdale's 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.

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.

This was a recommendation from our Lyft driver! Truly amazing night! One of the best lobsters I have ever had! You can tell everything was made from scratch! Every pasta dish was prepared perfectly. Incredible service, food and evening! Can’t wait to come back to Ft. Lauderdale to come here again.

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful restaurant. It's a bit pricey but WELL worth it! Everything was fabulous from the service, the exquisite meal, and the extensive wine list as well!! Couldn't have asked for anything more! They also have a fabulous bar with piano music that you can hear throughout. If we're ever staying in Fort Lauderdale again, we will be sure to visit again.

Great evening at Bistro Messaluna!! From the moment we arrived, everyone was accommodating and wonderful. We requested a booth and asked to be seated in Phil's area--no problem was the response and they made it happen. Phil, our waiter was beyond fabulous--he was attentive, informative, personable and made several great recommendations. Mezzaluna has an extensive and amazing wine list. Dinner was delish-- At our table we had for starters a Caesar salad, pear salad and the wedge salad-- they were all perfect with lots of "stuff" on them and the perfect amount of dressing. The main courses included chicken Parm (which wasn't on the menu, but Phil said that they would happily prepare whatever we wanted), the yellowtail snapper with crabmeat (sauted spinach and broccoli was substituted for the mashed potates and whatever veggie was on the menu), salmon with a mustard sauce (which Phil recommended rather than the grilled salmon on the menu) and meatballs. The portions were ample to large (meatballs and chicken parm doggie bags went home) and each dish was perfectly prepared, beautifully plated/presented and truly enjoyed. The special dessert of molten chocolate cake with coffee chip ice cream and whipped cream was shared/devoured by all along with coffee/espresso, etc. We had not been to Bistro Mezzaluna for quite some time and we all agreed that that had been a mistake or an oversight-- we will be back soon!!

An excellent way to celebrate my birthday - great food, wonderful service and the special summer season menu. The same portions and quality you'd expect from this kitchen but on a prix fixe menu ($35) with price reductions on some very nice wines. We don't dine here as often as we'd like because the regular menu, as good as it is, is also rather pricey. And Hector, our waiter, was a gem; personable, efficient, and knowledgeable. We'll go back soon to take advantage of their largesse.

The new summer menu is a true bargain. It's 3 courses, with 4 choices in the appetizers and main entrees and 2 desserts. Portions are not small and the food is excellent along with the servers.

Alfredo sauce a little bland. Drinks were great! Find your happy hour dishes better than the restaurant menu. The others in my party of 8 found the food great. But they have never had the happy hour food...
Also, u have a special of 3 courses for 30 or 35... my party of 8 were never shown that. We found out because that menu was given by accident, instead of the dessert menu. I think that's pretty sneaky.
