 (Washington DC)·Dined 6 days ago

8:45 PM Reservation and we were one of the only tables in the restaurant. We were rushed through every course of the meal and had the lights turned off on us by the end. So much for a relaxed dining experience. Just close earlier or don’t bother being open at all. Worst treatment I can recall in recent times from a place the has great reviews and was selected based on this. Shocking.

One of the best restaurants in South Florida. The chef uses Mexican spices in combination with continental style entrees to create an exceptional menu.

My Relatives were in town and heard of the restaurant and I told them they had to go as it is my favorite place in Florida. We went and everyone went crazy over the food. The flavors are amazing and the duck is outstanding. Great service and very quaint. Don't be fooled by the Strip Plaza location, the place is a must try. I had brought 26 people one time for a business dinner as I knew it would mean job security.

We have dined at Eduardo de San Angel for approximately 12 - 15 years and have never been disappointed. We are always recommending this restaurant to our friends and business acquaintances. Wayne and Paul take very good care of us in the dining rooms and Chef Eduardo Pria's food always wows! We trust their wine selections and heed their advice on what to order from their specials or the regular menu. Be sure to make this your next dining experience.

One of the best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. Although categorized as Mexican cuisine, this is not a burrito/taco shop. This is fine dining. They are known for their cilantro soup. I recommend asking for a half portion, just so you can sample more of their menu. The pork dishes are excellent, as well as the lamb and duck. Listen closely when the Specials are described - some of my best meals here have been off of this menu. I can’t review dessert since I’m always full by the time we get there. Perfect restaurant for a quiet date or anniversary.

Waiter was overbearing and insistent on pushing drinks on us.
Food was poor, angel hair pasta was way over cooked mush, shrimp had no flavor. My companions skirt steak was inedible grizzle.
Had high hopes for a birthday celebration and left Sadly disappointed

Arrived, presented Groupon, told they would take it at the end, ordered, ate, check was presented, gave credit card and Groupon as instructed, and the waiter returned to inform us that the Groupon cannot be used. When asked why he didn't tell us he said he didn't know. Manager on duty could have cared less. We paid $140.00 for Mexican fare including a 20% tip. Never again !

First of all the remodeling job on the restaurant was done beautifully esp the beautiful brickwork and new art. The Cilantro soup was an exciting taste experience and with the surprise of the cheese ball handmade that was an outstanding addition to the lively flavors The shrimp on a.bed of Spinach was delicious as well with exciting favors. Can't wait to go back.

This place has been a favorite of mine for over fifteen years. Hard to beat the food. Sad about the new LED, quasi spotlight bright white lighting. One of the great things besides the food and service was always the amazing (flattering) lighting... how about soft white, or, bring back the candelabra look? Love everything else!!!!

Excellent! While on vacation with our family we wanted some Mexican food and found Eduardo's on Google. The reviews were positive. Our daughters were skeptical it is not the typical tacos, burritos, chips and salsa Mexican restaurant. It is SO MUCH BETTER! The cilantro soup was our starter and boy was it fabulous. My husband and myself are on a whole food plant based diet and he cannot have anything with oil also. The chief fixed him an amazing dish with zucchini corn and the tastiest mushrooms (mexican truffles) They have great service and it was such a wonderful time we returned our last night of vacation and received another outstanding meal and service.

It had been a few years since I visited ESA. I moved away from the neighborhood. When my brother and his friend wanted to go out I suggested ESA. Even better than I remembered. Nothing at all to complain about and all the food was delicious. The best thing in my mind was an appetizer with a blue crab cake on top of a portabello with some fantastic sauce on top. All the presentations were artful.

Great spot need to return soon.
