Our server, Eduardo, was very nice and attentive. The food, however, was underwhelming. The beef tenderloin was under seasoned and chewy, the cheese filling inside wasn’t heated thoroughly, some parts were cold and some were hot, not sure if it was supposed to be that way but I didn’t enjoy it and sent it back. I replaced it with the lamb chops, I ordered them medium well but they were served well done. The lamb chops were also under seasoned. My boyfriend ordered the chicken and he said it was good. The sangria was good. Mediocre food but excellent service, will not return.

A destination for every visit to South Florida
The food is unique and consistently good
The value of the wine list and the bottle that is on the table is great
The margarita made with wine from the agave plant is fantastic
He has made it to 25 years in business
Hope this restaurant is here for the next 25 years

An interesting gourmet "Mexican" menu minus the typical fajitas, tacos, chips and salsa. Would highly recommend for those seeking something a lot more special than refried beans. The only drawback is that there is beer and wine only with no "Hard" liquor. Definitely worth a try.

This is truly different restaurant in southern Florida - Highly talented French trained chef - who cooks Mexican. The dishes can be sublime at best! Great at even the normal level! We travel the world and eat at a lot places - this is a true gem ! We get here whenever we are near the Ft. Lauderdale airport. The kitchen is even skilled enough to handle the vegan in our group - which again, points to the skill in that kitchen.

Eduardo de San Angel is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants. We went there recently with another couple. It is one of the few restaurants in the area with a very quiet ambience. The food is consistently excellent, as is the service.

Usually GREAT. Something really off. The specialty cilantro soup was not up to par. The eggplant appetizer was cold in the middle and not up to the usual standard. Even the great corn muffins were smaller. Such a disappointment and very surprising. Always loved Eduardo for the consistently excellent food. Hope it was just a bad night in the kitchen.

Was their 25th anniversary, looks like they haven’t changed a thing, dreary. Food was ambitiously described yet fell short. Plates were hot, no I mean HOT! Could not touch them the entire meal. What that means is the food was pre-prepared then tossed under the salamander to heat up. (I know this as I have worked kitchens before.) Just stringing together a bunch of exotic sounding ingredients (Mexican fungus, yeah) doesn’t make for haute cuisine, it’s execution and taste, both lacking here. Service was very good. Might give them one more try as people have told me how good it is. Stay tuned.

Five starts across the board! Nothing could be improved -- the ambience, the service, the food, the wine -- everything was perfect! Beautifully seasoned. My husband had cilantro soup (a must!) and skirt steak. I had a tasting menu that started with ceviche, then corn chowder, then snapper steamed in husk with tomatoes, capers, olives, then topped all off with mango sorbet.
Every time we dine here, we ask ourselves: why don't we come here more often?! This place is amazing!
