Amazing food and wonderful waiter! We were in town for a volleyball tournament for our 12 and 8 year olds and we were looking for a quick, healthy dinner. Bistro Mezzaluna was perfect, we were in and out in under an hour and the food was absolutely incredible! Adults and children all loved their meal, will definitely return!!!

very disappointing. Although the food was excellent everything else was sub par. The staff did not seem happy and not accommodating. The service was slow. It took over an hour to receive our entrees after ordering them. The kitchen substituted items without letting us know first because they ran out of things. There are to many other choices in south florida to return to this one.

Christmas Eve dinner with family and close friends was absolutely amazing. Menu and wine list are wonderful. Service magnificent. We sat on the patio so did not experience the "bar scene" inside. The setting was so lovely. Our first experience here, but definitely will not be the last. It is pricey, but worth every penny and then some!

Server was not attentive. He was in a hurry. We never felt like he was interested. He almost took out order behind us. Horrible service. Calamari was not good but the snapper was good. Husband steak was not cooked right because the waiter was not listening. Just running around like he was so important. We did not get our salad. So sad

We have been regulars at Bistro Mezzaluna for roughly eight years! The food is excellent and one can enjoy conversation as the noise levels are always easy on the ears. The pasta with meat sauce is excellent, portions are large, and desserts are enough for two or three.

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.

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.
