This is the second time we've been and the food and service didn't disappoint. Absolutely an amazing time. Great food, amazing service, would highly recommend.
We had a great time. The food the vibes the drinks the staff and Mario are all outstanding. No one would ever tire of this great restaurant. It’s our go to place.
I had high expectations for this restaurant, cause it did get good reviews....I hate to say but our party was very disappointed...We can afford to dine in a "higher priced" restaurant and we will not mind paying for it if the quality matches the price ....this is not the case here, this restaurant is waaaay overpriced for the food and drinks they serve.....I am really sorry to say this, but not worth it at all! We will not return to dine here again.:-( not even with the $100.00 coupon that was thrown at as at the and of our visit!
We’ve been coming here for over ten years. Always excellent food and a great time!
Not inexpensive, however, very yummy! If you like Cuban or Spanish food, you're going to like Catalina's!
The food as always was excellent. However, the restaurant was not busy and that resulted in the wait staff being very inattentive. That is not typical for this restaurant, however.
Great! Great! Great! Mario is Catalina is top notch and always a delight to done there. The food, the atmosphere, the staff, the team and Mario are all beyond excellent. Thank you!!! Great! Great! Great! Mariam is Catalina is top notch and always a delight to done there. The food, the atmosphere, the staff, the team and Marielle are all beyond excellent. Thank you
Exceptional service and attention from Mario, Chino, and the whole staff. Lechon asado delectable as always with fine mojitos and House rioja!
Very enjoyable dining experience. The owner Mario is onsite and stopped to check on us a couple of times.
They have the best red sangria and the ox tail was superb.
We always have a wonderful meal and a wonderful time at Mario’s Catalina. Their food is authentic and delicious. This service the ambience and the entire team that Mario has is just terrific. I wonderful place to go to anytime.
This was my first experience and I was happy until the end of our dining experience. We were seated promptly and the wait staff was very attentive. Menu selection had plenty of variety. The decor was a little busy for my taste but certainly would not prevent me from returning.
The food and service were great until the end when the owner showed up to our table with gift cards trying to sell them as promotion. The gift cards were 100 dollars Mario offered 3 for 200 dollars.
This truly ruined my whole dining experience. I definitely wasn’t expecting this type of promo. It certainly made me feel like there was a sense of desperation on the part of the management.
I will think not twice but three times before returning.
Never a disappointment. Well cared for by Mario, Chino, Fernando and the gang.
Mario is the best! His place is well put together. The food and drink are the best part. I will eat here again and again when in town.
The food is really great. Plan for taking part of your meal home for lunch the next day! The roast pork is truly amazing
Best Cuban Restaurant I’ve ever been too. My wife says the Paella was just as good as in Barcelona. The red snapper was phenomenal and so was the white Sangria.
Mario and the entire staff at Catalina are fantastic. The food is consistently excellent. The drinks terrific. The service and the friendliness of the staff is why we go back again and again. This is our go to restaurant and it never disappoints. We love Mario’s Catalina five star plus plus plus
Wonderful food and excellent service...a little pricey but the experience is worth it
As always, Catalina provided a superb dining experience. The skirt steak is simply the best I've ever had. The shrimp cocktail was fresh and beautifully presented. Desert is a must. The flan is better than grandmas!
Visiting the area and wanted Cuban food.
Hotel concierge recommended the restaurant.
Cool ambience, perhaps reminiscent of Havana!
Food was excellent and abundant! Entrees were pricey,
But surely could be shared.
Paella was loaded with shellfish! Staff was charming!
Sorry we have to go home and won’t visit for awhile!
Marianos Catalina Restaurant is excellent, superb, fun and a food lovers delight. Everything about this restaurant is excellent particularly Mario and his excellent staff. The food is wonderful and consistently so.
Mario and his staff are great at making you feel welcome. The food is great and the mojito can't be beat.
Excellent food and service; warm, inviting atmosphere. We came back with friends later this same week--all in town for a business trip.
Mario is the best host in S Florida!
Great service, super Cuban Spanish authentic food recipes. Fabulous Grouper and of course his signature beef and pork dishes. Paella for two is always a treat.
This place absolutely knocked my socks off. Best mojito I’ve ever had. So I had two of them. Also, really amazing octopus, beef and shrimp. I can’t wait to have an occasion to go back.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. The staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a great dining experience. The food was amazing and authentic.
MARIO and all the staff are amazing!! They set us up beautifully for a party of 7 last minute on a Saturday
Marianos Catalina Restaurant is top notch. The food is consistently terrific and the service and on Beyonce are wonderful. Mario and his entire staff are just great. This is our go to restaurant in Fort Lauderdale and on any given night it’s terrific.
Mario is wonderful and welcoming! The food was fabulous, definitely go again.
Terrible experience, spent 30 minutes waiting with a reservation
Fantastic food which exceeded our expectation.s. Service was perfect. Highly recommend it this place!
Great food, authentic great service, great ambiance! Recommended!
Been here many times very, very disappointed this time. Service way off, rushed you, not attentive, asked for separate checks, didn’t get that, was charged an outrageous amount for a shot of well vodka $14.00, charged $5.00 for a cup of coffee, asked for a refill, was charged another $5.00 not a way to get repeat customers, don’t think we will be going back anytime soon.
First time in a Cuban restaurant and loved the experience. Prices seemed a bit high but quality was good.
The food is the reason to come to Catalina restaurant. The restaurant itself is cozy and has a very pleasant atmosphere. There's a small bar you can dine at if you are doing the "pop-in" and they will also accommodate walk in traffic if tables are available.
This is a notch above the more recognizable Spanish/Cuban offerings in the area.
If you are in the mood for delicious and plentiful portions, you must try Catalina restaurant!
We had empanadas as an appetizer which was excellent. I had the Salmon and shrimp in a red sauce and my wife had the chicken chunks which both were super! Service was on point also.
Fabulous place!! Definitely recommend to everyone.
The food was great, we have eaten here on previous occasions and the service was better in the past, but was still good. I recommend this restaurant if you like Cuban or Spanish Cuisine.
Catalina is FABULOUS!! The food, service, vibes and staff are GREAT....we love this wonderful delicious restaurant! THANK YOU MARIO!!
