We were celebrating a family birthday. The food was amazing. Our server Donald was exceptional! Seriously the best we’ve ever had. Everything was wonderful. And the Birthday cake with a sparkler at the end was great! Made the birthday extra special!
Wonderful time minus the fact they were out of French fries, garlic mash and lobster tail, by the time of our reservation. Made ordering my anticipated meal from the grill, a bit challenging. But all in all, Donald made the experience worthwhile and ensured a happy Mother on Mother’s Day.
Beautiful restaurant seated promptly.Drinks and appetizers were excellent.We all ate fish.They where over cooked dry and tasteless.Been here many times .Maybe it was mother’s day chef had a bad day.Will go back again for drinks and sit outside.
Beautiful restaurant, friendly staff, nice selection of cocktails, delicious appetizers, entrees and dessert
We loved our dinner experience! The restaurant is gorgeous and the water view amazing!
Excellent food and service as always!!! The ceviche, snapper and Bimini bread were absolutely delicious!!
Beautiful restaurant. Food was great. Nice ambiance. Good service.
We were seated next to a really noisy table. Couldn’t move us. The table did quiet done a bit so it wasn’t too bad. Food was okay. Price a little high. Don’t think we’ll go back.
It was perfect
We were having a lovely dinner by the water until it started to rain. We were then moved inside to a crowded dinning space that was reserved for everyone who was outside. It was cold, loud (echos) and a complete vibe kill. I know the restaurant can’t control the weather, but we wish they had a better plan to accommodate for such a situation
Our.server Jeff was great
Food was good; service was not the best, we waited almost 30 minutes to order appetizers...
Other than the hostess being on the phone for 5 minutes while I was trying to find my table, all was good.
Very disappointed. They seated us outside which is beautiful but the seating cushions we disgustingly dirty. We had to put on linen napkin to sit on and it was like that on all cushions outside. Someone is not paying attention to detail.
Found a good seat at the bar while waiting for a table. The bartender was friendly and professional. Had a couple of martinis while waiting to be seated (Uber). Dinner was absolutely delicious and the waitress was on the money. The octopus appetizer was delicious. My queen had the paella and I had the Grouper. Great atmosphere and comfortable seating under a big tree while observing smaller boats docking for dinner and drinks. On my list of things to do in Fort Lauderdale.
Donald was amazing! His attention to detail is what made our dining experience so magical.
Excellent meal from appetizer to dessert. Donald could not have been better. Paella was awesome. And the bread.
Great, as always! Will definitely return. Service and food are always wonderful.
The service at Boatyard is professional on a very high level. The restaurant handles hundreds of people at a time, but it does not slip up on making the customers feel that they are being attended to. The foods is delicious, especially the filets and the stone crabs. Wine prices are moderate to a little on the expensive side. This is a great place to impress out-of-town friends.
As a regular at the restaurant we were very disappointed about the situation of eating outside. As soon as our food came so did the flies. Although the waitress did a couple of thong to get rid of them it didn’t help. We feel that before we sat down this should been told to us.
The worst amount of flies ever. Had to battle for our food. Swarm of 50 flies
Wonderful food and service. I ordered the filet and it was great. They put a sparkler in my dessert for my birthday. We sat outside next to the water.
We were seated inside and there was some noise initially but not bad. I have come to this restaurant other times and find outside seating to be better but the ambiance is still very good inside. The octopus appetizer was excellent and the other appetizer we ordered were tacos which was good. Our server was Jeff and he was attentive the whole night without being pushy. The chocolate dessert plate is a chocolate sampler with the mousse the best part. Worth a repeat trip soon!
For the money I think they can afford putting some bread or crackers on the table.
Had my Birthday dinner at the Boatyard and really enjoyed the pleasant service and relaxing scenery. The food was excellent! Had a delish flithy cosmo and the birthday cake was awesome!!!!
Consistency... business dinners require consistent venues like Boat Yard.
Waitress was not attentive. Service was slow. But food was excellent and ambiance was great.
Happy to report they are getting things back on track. This is one of my favorite places. Food is delicious and the outside dinning is so beautiful this time of year.
Nice place, we did not like the service, the server was being a little sarcastic when we asked for our drinks that were taking to long, other than that very nice place.
The service and food were excellent. The only thing I have that I didn't like was I made a reservation over a month in advance to celebrate my husband's birthday. I requested outside dinning when I made the reservation. When we arrived, were informed that we would have to wait 2.5 hours for outside dinning. That was disappointing and doesn't make me want to return for another visit.
Best service ever. Great food. Great atmosphere. Loved it!!!
The Boatyard is a must when you are in Ft Lauderdale. The food is beyond belief - your tastebuds will be on overload. Best meal we had on our trip. Paella is best I have ever had - octopus was out of this world - filthy Cosmo out of this world. Highly recommend. Service and views can’t be beat! Love this place what a fantastic experience! Thank you Boatyard!
Treating our daughter
Beautiful restaurant, wonderful food, but don’t go on ladies night. Seeing men prey on intoxicated women really made it hard to enjoy my swordfish.
Everything was great. Reservation was on time. Wait staff was friendly and food came out perfectly. Atmosphere was friendly and great views. Highly recommend.
This place was amazing. Went for a sister date lol, the food was so good and the drinks were refreshing. I would definitely go back for dinner or brunch. We had a great time.
Great service, fun atmosphere, food was terrific!!
Service was abrupt and not very personal. Expensive for the food served. Drinks were terrible.
Wonderful food, great service and the atmosphere was beautiful!
The location is convenient. The facility is large and accommodating, but not much ambiance. The service was fairly good, but the food was not especially tasty.
