Whenever we are in Ft. Lauderdale we always look forward to a wonderful meal @ Grille 66. Always spectacular. Service is great too! I would highly recommend Grille 66 and Bar as they offer several menu items.

There are only a few really impressive outdoor dining venues in the Fort Lauderdale area. Grill 66 is in the top three. On a comfortable balmy evening ,there is nothing better that sipping a cocktail, enjoying a Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail [ really big ] and a medium rare Bone in Rib Eye with a loaded baked potato and veggies. After a great dining experience, walk the Marina and marvel at the giant yachts in the harbor and dream on !!
Don't forget to bring your fly swatter for as the sun goes down, you are joined by a number of uninvited guests who also believe I made a great choice for dinner that night. They come back every night.

Was disappointed as our driver advised the restaurant was atop the building and rotated...
But learned it was at dockside... never the less.. food and service was excellent.. a little noisy ..
Steaks are fantastic...

We celebrated our daughters Birthday this week at Grille 66 after she flew in from Denver. It was perfect from start to finish! The kind manager seated us at a table for 6 by the window overlooking the Intracoastal and Marina. The views were incredible, along with our service and delicious dinner. From the wonderful salads, to fresh fish, steaks and sides, it was an amazing dinner. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The Potatoes in a cream sauce were fabulous, too. We tried several desserts and the Key Lime Pie was outstanding, along with the Hot Fudge Sundae. Our server was great! Helpful, kind and attentive. We enjoy coming here for Anniversary's, Birthday's and just a couples night out. The ambiance is lovely and restful. Being on the water is fun watching the Yachts go by or sitting near the docks to admire the boats there. It is our favorite place for great dining in Ft. Lauderdale. Always a positive experience eating here.

This is the second time weve dined here and enjoyed it just as much the second time. We had the same waiter.John. He was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. He made some recommendations upon request and he was spot on. I had a salmon with a slightly spicy sauce absolutely delicious. I had asked to see the desert menu first since I have diabetes and could choose either wine or dessert. When I ordered my fish he offered to switch out the broccolini for rice, remembering and suggesting for my dietary requests. the restaurants sits right on the docks of Pier 66, some of the largest yachts you'll see in Ft. Lauderdale. It's true Florida whether youre a native or tourist. My only objection is the noise level. It's an open dining room. I wish I would have chosen to eat outside so as to avoid the noise.

With an explanation of my likes and dislikes. Then they could decide for themselves.

Very pretentious. Wasn't happy with my table and they moved me to the same table on the other side of a circular piece of furniture, so essentially no change. Waiter was okay after forgetting to tell us there were specials. The food was good, so that's what you go for. The prices were somewhat higher than the experience deserves but the location commands that, I suppose. Very pretty restaurant and location.

Service with Bill our server this evening, was second to none, very attentive and formal. The chef is to be complimented on an outstanding Surf & Turf (my favorite) the filet was prepared to perfection and silky ... the ambiance as we sat outside was very calming and the music at a very nice background level to which you can talk at a normal level with your table. Prior to dinner, as we arrived 45 minutes early we sat at the bar and were also treated very well. The only draw back were the hostesses, one seem confused and the other seemed that she really didn't want to be there.

We shall be back in a couple of weeks, as it was our first visit and is now in our short list of finest restaurants to dine in.

Sincerely,

Amazing dinner with spectacular views. Started with the seared scallops and tomato and mozzarella- both were excellent. Had the Veal Milanese and 8 oz Filet for our entrees both were out of this world. I think it was the best Veal Milanese I ever had. We also had the roasted Brussels. Service was impeccable. Would go back in a heartbeat.

This is a very high class restaurant with good food and service. The price on some items are a bit too expensive for the item. A garden salad at $15 and large baked potato for $10 are a few examples.
The ambiance and approach with customers make the experience special and enjoyable. The menu is slightly limited and surprisingly focused on meat rather than seafood, however if you are looking for this type of fare, you can not go wrong.

All in all, the experience was terrific. Only drawback was that after we asked to change tables because there was a large, fun loving group of people next to us, we were reseated to only be next to another group of 20 people.
Only shows how popular the restaurant is for their food, service and hospitality!

We thought the food was outstanding. The waiter did his best to help us but we were very frustrated with management who made a big deal about our asking two friends to sit with us at our table of six! They eventually were allowed to sit and we had plenty of room. But the atmosphere was not good.
Also, the noice level in the restaurant seems inordinately high.

We were greeted warmly and seat at a great table. The food was excellent as always( we dine there at least five times a year) but the service was brutally slow. We were served water and waited over 30 min for the waiter to get our dinner orders( we don’t drink alcohol so maybe he was upset over that). Total time for dinner was 2 1/2 hours. Reluctant to go back.

This is our second vacation in Ft Lauderdale. We ate at Grille 66 last year and loved it so much we decided to go again this year. Grille 66 was our favorite dinner while in Ft Lauderdale. Would highly recommend to anyone!!! We sat outside, which was beautiful. Both the atmosphere and food are wonderful! The lobster and filets were amazing and the key lime pie is the best we’ve ever had!!! Definitely eat at Grille 66 for a nice dinner out!!

My steak was very overcooked - the waiter described it as well done. He agreed and took it back to the kitchen. They cooked a new steak but by the time it arrived our sides were cold. They reheated them insufficiently. The service was good and our waiter apologetic about the steak. They insisted on giving us two complimentary desserts which we didn't want - they should have taken our two glasses of wine off the bill - would have been the same value. We won't go back.

The service was TOP NOTCH! There were several people who waited on us. We were a 4 top and shared wine and salads and passed around deserts and sides and the wait staff was there to assist us and they were sooooooooo awesome! The food was OVER THE TOP WORTH EVERY PENNY! Fine dining for sure but with a relaxed atmosphere. IT was very relaxing for a Sunday evening and the ambiance was terrific! Sunset on the water with great food, service and loved ones. BEYOND BLESSED!
