I took some work buddies for dinner Tuesday, they had a great dinner and loved the ambience. Hard to believe there are still people in our area that haven’t had the opportunity to dine here. Do yourself a favor and call for a reservation.

Thank you to the team at Martorano’s for always making me feel welcome and I consider you all family...

Sincerely

Emilio

The food is always absolutely outstanding, but the staff and owner of this beautiful restaurant make it such a special place. Upbeat, full of energy, and cool, but warm and welcoming all at the same time. You won't be able to go just once.

1. Food was ok, the rigatoni was totally undercooked way beyond normal “al dente” you may find in Italy
2. Vegas prices in Ft. Lauderdale without all the flash
3. Most disappointing was being asked to leave the table for the next reservation. We had drinks, appetizers, main course, and desert. We had been at the table and were actually wrapping up and would have been gone in another 20 minutes after my wife had a chance to finish the rest of her $120.00 bottle of wine. For a $500.00 plus check you would think there would be a better level of hospitality. Our total time at the table was 1 hour 40 minutes.

Unfortunately trying to support the local establishments did not work out so well

We were six people waiting for two more to complete a reservation for eight. They would not allow us to sit at a table even though one of my guests was holding a very heavy baby. They told us to go to the bar where there were no stools to sit on. Once seated, they did not have a high chair. My guest had to go back out to the car to drag in a large stroller. Our waiter was shouting all the specials with no mask on .We asked for a side of vegetables for the nine month old baby and all they could offer was a plate of broccoli Rabe for $14.
The bus boys were constantly trying to take our plates away while we were still eating. At one time the man clipped my guests shoulder and dropped oily cheese on her new dress. It was very aggressive table clearing. I have no problem spending large sums of money for a special occasion. But all in all this was a bad experience. Plus they don’t have garlic bread!

We love it!! Of all the best locations... FLL is the best of all!! The music is amazing. I had a huge Surprise 50th party planned for my husband last year and due to my dad passing I had to cancel. This year I had a Surprise 50/51 party planned and canceled to due COVID-19. Instead, he and I had an amazing dinner last Saturday night and enjoyed ourselves immensely ♥️

Gave this restaurant a second chance . First time had reservation for 8 people at 8 pm for my husbands 50th birthday and didn't get a table till 10:30 - we left and went across the street to a very accommodating Greek restaurant. My 50th birthday was the other night and had a table for 12 people. Due to a medical emergency me and my husband had to fly back home. Not only did Cafe Martorano charge the existing party for our plates ($125 each) They also didn't provide the planned menu and made no apologies. Will never return due to poor management and a staff with no moral compass. They put the check on the table and were asked to leave.

When I walked in I felt like I was in someone's home. I was welcomed and so were my kids. Once our table was prepared according to our reservation we sat down and was greeted by staff. The server did an amazing job telling us the promo items and explaining them further since it was our first time there. He also went over the food and drink menu a little more as we asked. The other staff were very attentive in bringing bread to the table, clearing our dishes that we were done with, and boxing our food that we needed boxes were. Steve (the owner) was there on the line in the kitchen as well as mixing up music. For one you hardly see restaurant owner's on the line in the kitchen so that stood out big time for me since I was in the restaurant industry for over a decade. Also my youngest daughter enjoyed his DJ skills since that is her career goal so to see that closeup was awesome. Overall vibe was like family, laid back with a sense of fine dining, which was an awesome mix.

I brought my daughter and a friend because they have heard from us how fun it is....(we have come the last 3 times we were down here from New York) this time there was no music, no dancing and no fun movie interaction... perhaps becaus it was a Sunday night ( my previous visits were on the weekend)- perhaps it was because of his loss (for which we send condolences to the family)... however, the food was delicious - and after all - isn’t that why we go to a restaurant?
