This was a first time dining experience for my family member that I had with me. She had never had a great steak. The ambience of the restaurant was very warm, elegant, and comfortable. The Waygu NY strip I had was superb. The pork belly and scallops were phenomenal! When I am back in Ft. Lauderdale I will most certainly be back.

Food and service were excellent. I don't understand how a high end restaurant like this one lets customers with shorts and flip flops in. Another one had a sleeveless tank top! They should enforce a minimal dress code. Not sure I would return.

Short story is that the food was outstanding (the beet salad is a must) and we were blown away by the service.

The long of it is that we asked if we could have dinner including our toddler twins. While the restaurant does not have a kids menu, they assured us, the chef would accommodate requests to feed the kids. The chef made pan fried salmon filet and steak fries for the kids - which were delicious! The waiters came often to make sure the kids were happy with their meal. To top it off, we had an amazing chocolate dessert. We were concerned about taking the kids to an upscale restaurant for dinner, but the level of service, care and quality of the food at the Diplomat Prime made it an amazing dining experience. Thank you!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on May 6, 2017

The hostess was very uplifting and inviting. The ambiance was very nice and open. The service was on key from knowledge of the menu, to selling the products, to silverware placing, to patience and politeness, and to answering any questions or concerns. The meal I had, oh the meal I had, a 16oz ribeye medium rare inside, nice lite crisp on the outside. I paired it with a Au poiver sauce and truffle mash potatoes. The meal was excellent but those ruffle mash potatoes where beyond amazing. I wanted more but after cleaning my plates I was full. Even the manager came to the table to make sure everything was good(I didn't see him go to everyone's table, only mine). Being a classically trained chef, I was very happy with my experience. I will be going back.

Very solid steakhouse in a pretty amazing room. Really enjoyed the side dishes as well. Better than you'd expect to find in a hotel, but not world class. Worth a trip!

Steaks are outstanding and prepared to perfection. Mushrooms are a fantastic side for beef entrees. My preference is to order salad to share, split a NY strip and order a few sides. Yum!! And you have room for dessert if you desire ❤️

In town for a meeting at this hotel and decided to try. Seated quickly and our waiter, David, was very attentive and knowledgeable. We had beef and were not disappointed, both adding the "Oscar option" to Waygu filet and Prime strip. David had a wonderful wine suggestion and the bread!!! Fabian and Rosendo added efficiency to the service. A little pricey but we felt the experience was worth it.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on March 31, 2017

Overall, the experience was good to very good... but... I am a Certified Specialist of Wine and Prime does not allow outside bottles to be brought into the restaurant. Their wine list is VERY good but also very pricey... not so much as overprices as very little selection, in my opinion, in the middle range. I actually have several of their wines in my personal cellar. Their policy thus eliminated my ability to drink the wine of my choosing from my cellar, that I know, vs. being forced to buy theirs. Although good, I can frequent any number of excellent steak houses in the Fort Lauderdale area AND bring my own wines. I won't return as I do not support any restaurant that does not realize I am the customer and want to control my dining experience vs. the establishment. With that said, anyone who does not have my personal experience and wants a good steak restaurant will not be disappointed.

 (Little Rock)·Dined on March 25, 2017

Four of us dined here. The service here is very very good, and careful attention is paid to the details and the ambiance is wonderful.. We started with oysters. Three of us had the filet mignon medium rare with bearnaise sauce and another had the skirt steak with roasted bone marrow. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Our server advised us that the each side dish would serve about 2 people. We opted for the creamed spinach, mushrooms, and mashed potatoes. The sides were unremarkable, and the mashed potatoes were definitely too salty. For dessert, a member of our party had the key lime tart which was okay. The food is very pricey and the menu is very limited. The smallest steak portion is a 10 oz. filet. Not everyone has an appetite that large. There is a large wine list.

We are frequent diners at Diplomat Prime for several years. Dining is always a pleasant experience ....starting with the outstanding hostess, Allyson. She is courteous, friendly and professional...to all, including those guests that she cannot accommodate. Allyson is a great asset to the Diplomat and makes us , as customers want to return.

The Prime at the Diplomat was a true dining experience. The ambience is very Chicago or New York with high ceilings and great acoustics. The service was attentive and helpful. We had the South African lobster tail and the seasonal snapper dish. Both were excellent. We look forward to going back. And if you eat there, they will comp your parking. Whoohoo!
