We have dined there many times and this time the service was mediocre. Although our waiter was kind and friendly we waited atleast 10 to 15 minutes to receive our menus. Our order wasn't taken for 40 minutes after being seated. We are going to chalk it up to it being a Holiday weekend.

The overall dining experience was terrific as food and service exceeded expectations. Was disappointed however that even though I had indicated outside dining a table had not been prepared in advance. I was also disappointed even though I had indicated it was an anniversary celebration nothing had been done to recognize the event . One my last GIF of the restaurant was reading and Oregon knowledge Jean these comments on the reservation made through OpenTable????

Our meal was very good. We shared the Shrimp spring rolls, which we both thought were delicious and filled with lots of fresh vegetables. Also shared the sautéed broccoli rabe, which was excellent. For dinner my husband ordered the snapper which he thought was fantastic and I had the shrimp scampi which I would definitely recommend, there was no shortage of shrimp for sure and it wasn’t overwhelming with pasta. We shared a very nice bottle of wine! Our waiter was friendly, professional and very attentive. We loved the decor and paintings on the wall, the small separate rooms, the piano/sports bar and the amazing wine room as you enter the restaurant. The menu sa are fabulous, once you open them a light turns on for easy reading! Loved this feature!

Although the food is generally very good at Bistro Mezzaluna, the menu was changed to accommodate visitors from the Annual Ft. Lauderdale who want to be served quickly and drink large amounts of expensive alcohol. This was according to our waiter who was excellent. So my favorite item was off the menu. I opted for Veal Scaloppini, which was flavorful, but tough. It should be easy to cut through when the quality is there. My companion had a steak with Bernaise sauce. The steak was good, but the sauce, rather than being runny, was congealed and not acceptable.

As soon as you arrive, from the valet to the final check, everything is top notch! Definately worth a shot if in The Lauderdale area.

I had been to Bistro Mezzaluna once previously and really enjoyed it so when I had a need to find a good restaurant for a Business Dinner on the night of the Labor Day holiday I wasted no time in attempting to secure a reservation. I was thrilled that you accepted reservations from as early as 5:00 p.m. and we were charmed by the staff and their professional approach and attitude. You have a great team. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive. So much so, that I have already decided that when my brother comes to town on 18th October it is at the Bistro Mezzaluna that we will be eating that night. Thanks.

Another wonderful evening at Bistro Mezzaluna. A welcoming, well paced evening with outstanding specials along with their everyday menu. We enjoyed their pasta as well as their special snapper and sea bass. Phil is our waiter each time we go, he greatly assists in making the evening flo and attentive but not over lording the table.

We chose this restaurant for our Father's Day dinner. It was our first time dining here. Robert, our waster, was great...in service & personality. We started with jumbo shrimp cocktail & lump crab cocktail. Amazing! The veal chop & lamb chops were superb. Key lime pie was the grand finale. Will definitely go back.

We went for dinner for our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. This was our first time at this restaurant. The service was amazing from the minute we walked through the door all the way up to dessert. The food was excellent and served hot. There were so many things we would have liked to try, so we will definitely come back.

Old world excellence at every turn. Friendly, experienced and well trained service team compliments the hand crafted artisan pasta dishes, fresh fish, aged steaks and rustic salads. Was plain to see the restaurant caters to both the tourist and the regular local clients, with a lively happy hour and entertainment in the bar. The backlit menus are an amazing find and I immediately shared the concept via video with several friends who own restaurants. Overall 5 star experience with execution that sparkled from valet, host, bar, kitchen and wait teams.

The restaurant was in a large building with no windows. The waiter was good and tried to speak Italian but managed a only a few words. The food plates were huge and not all that Italian or appetizing. The overall impression was that of a large operation that was "fake" Italian.
