    After going here for so many years, and always getting the same entrees, we decided to be a little adventurous and order something new. The chicken Marsala was superb and a great recommendation by our server Jose. The Bucatini Carbonara was absolutely decadent and guarantees leftovers. Pricey- yes, but you absolutely get what you pay for. Amazing food, good music and even better service.

    The staff was amazing they were very attentive to all needs and knew the answers to all the questions from the hostess to bartender and waiters. Everything was super fast except the table wait, came 30 minutes early and didn’t get sat for 50 minutes also a lot of issues with valet. If they had a bigger space I’m sure everything would be perfect. Highly recommend! Food was outstanding with huge portions!

    As always the food was great. I brought my brother and nephew as they have never been there. Both came away super impressed. Stevie is always generous sending over dishes to try and they are always fabulous. Every time I go I have to have Marsha's pistachio cake for dessert! Great place and a must try. MAKE RESERVATIONS!

    I have been going to Cafe Martarano since it opened. It has been a while since I visited. Still the best restaurant in the world. When I make that statement to people that know me well, they know it is a huge statement. They understand I dine at very nice restaurants all over the map. Steve never disappoints! The only people I have ever heard complain it is always about the noise level. ( not my guests!) If you want a quiet sit down dinner go elsewhere or perhaps early on a weeknight. Be prepared, I remember one of the statements “on any given night” The energy, excitement and happenings are all part of the Café Martarano experience. See you soon!

    Waiter was good, food was good, but felt very rushed. Have to guarantee a reservation with a credit card (no problem), but instead of opening on time they made everyone stand in the parking lot after opening time. Girl at the Posen just stared at us through the window. Once they opened no “sorry for the wait” just one word RESERVATION? Seemed very entitled, like customer should feel blessed to be allowed in. Maybe that’s the vibe they’re looking for. Not my first time to eat there, other times were a little more friendly and less pushy.

    Our Favorite place to eat in Ft Lauderdale. We make it a point every time we are in town! We were able to sit at the bar and Adam is the best! So attentive and friendly. Paul had the lobster and rice special (same sauce as the calamari) he said it was the best app he had ever had in his life. Should add to the menu!!! Thank you as always Steve and Marsha Denise

    Don't be more than 15 min late or they will give you issues. We called to advise we were stuck in traffic due to an accident on i95 but GPS was estimating our arrival within the 15 min grace period and unfortunately traffic was a killer and we arrived 17 min after reservation and they almost turned us away. The hostess told us we had an hour to eat if she sat us or we could wait for an opening at the bar. We had plans after dinner elsewhere so we weren't planning to linger at the restaurant, we just wanted our anniversary dinner. They finally sat us and all went well. Our server did not rush us, the food was amazing! We had a great time once we passed the hostess stand.

    Everything was excellent until we got the check. We still had full drinks and were rushed to pay the tab and leave the table. This has happened every time we have gone to Cafe Martorano. I was afraid to get up and use the ladies room because I knew my glass of wine would be cleared from the table. Not a good feeling. Buzz kill.
