Great from start to finish. Food was upscale, cocktails amazing. Duck confit pappardelle was a favorite, scallops and shrimp pad Thai were also outstanding. The service was first class. Dan did an awesome job. He was familiar with the menu and gave us great recommendations. Save room for the Big City Tavern chocolate cake.
Good overall experience. Great service from Roxanne and enough choices on the menu to suit all tastes.
Big City is one of my favorite restaurants in Fort Lauderdale! It is located right on Las Olas, with outdoor and indoor seating. Their menu is amazing whether you want breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are many options to choose from whether you are in the mood for the healthy option they have great salads including the arugula and quinoa salad, to the delicious Bacon Marmalade Grilled Cheese and assortment of pizzas. Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays are fantastic- unlimited mimosas or Bloody Mary's for only $14 with the purchase of an entree. After just a couple mimosas you will be feeling good! The prosciutto on avocado toast is so fresh and delicious. The ambiance and environment make the restaurant an even better place to spend time and relax with good friends. Great happy hour specials and is never overbearing with people. Can't say enough good things about Big City!!
Yummy food. Bottomless mimosas before a show!!!
Food and service is amazing. I have never been disappointed when I come to big city.
Food and service were very good. Location is loud due to the bar. Made it hard to converse.
Everything was good to be able to conduct business and eat well.
Always a treat. No surprises just good food professionally served up in an upbeat spot.
Roxanne excellent server
Nice space, great bartenders but all downhill from there.
Service from waiter was slow, disconnected and ruined meal.
Duck papparadelle was good but shrimp pasta terrible both took 45 minutes to come out after our appetizers.
Manager comped some of meal but couldn’t compensate for a wasted experience.
Much better options in Fort Lauderdale.
They took us on time with a reservation. Our server was attentive and helpful. Food was fresh tasting, large portioned, and delicious. Atmosphere is comfortable and fun. Will return.
Met friends who were leaving for a cruise next day. All good at restaurant, food is good, lively crowd and attentive service. It is loud. Note: Parking is difficult as there is no valet. Leave plenty of time to fins a space.
Great food. Excellent server.
Reservation required, especially on an event week-end for Brunch. Great varied menu, excellent service. Very accommodating servers :)
We had an amazing time meeting up with family and celebrating my daughter’s birthday. We sat on the patio type area. The mood of the restaurant is lively and fun. The food is delicious- order the specials - fantastic! Our server was fantastic too. Will visit again when in town.
Good atmosphere, server was very knowledgeable and good at what he does. I was interested in moving from outside to inside and hostess wasn't super accommodating yet I had a reservation which I found a bit strange. She told me they were about to seat people at the table but it was 30 mins before anyone sat there and it was TWO people. I brushed it off as inexperience but bothered me a bit.
Food and ambiance was good, not so much for the service tonight. We've had better service before.
Friendly, great service and good food. I’d definitely go again when next in Fort Lauderdale
Fun lunch with my family during the Las Olas Art Festival. I eat here all the time for work so I was pleasantly surprised with the brunch menu this past Saturday. My daughter enjoyed her Nutella French toast and my husband said his eggplant parmigiana sandwich was delicious. I had a smoked salmon board with a toasted bagel with cream cheese. The service was good even though it was busy.
Appetizers of coconut shrimp and calamari were overcooked and bland. The sea scallops with risotto entree was excellent. Mixed bag.
Roxanne was our waitress. She made it all perfect !
Hostess stand fantastic too !
They were great with my mother who was using a walker.
Food was awesome. GREAT JOB
everyone was super nice @the bar too.
Food and service were awesome.!!!!
Food is always great and the outdoor seating as well. Our service was just ok. Checked on us once. Won’t keep us from going back. Love Big City!
We stopped here on New Year's Day on the way to the airport. We waited about 10 minutes for the server to come by for our order. We ordered drinks and waited again to see our server. We ordered our food and another server brought it out when ready. We realized we had no silverware so we asked the 2nd server. He brought us forks and knives but not a "setup" so now we had no napkins! Our server stopped by and we asked for napkins. He brought us 4 cocktail napkins. The burger and chicken sandwiches were both great but messy. Cocktail napkins didn't cut it for the mess. I know it was a busy day but not having napkins and silverware is basic. I would give them another try on a different day.
Waited forever for our food and it was the wrong order
Big City is always a great experience. The food is really good, the atmosphere is super comfortable and it’s priced really well. We’ve come here a few times and are never disappointed.
New Year’s Eve
Great time excellent waiter
Attentive and fast service, great view, good beer and wine selection, overall a fun evening.
We were celebrating my Mom’s 81st Birthday and my Anniversary, only my husband got sick at the last minute and it was just Mom and me. The team was top notch and made the night extra special for us! Our server was engaging and attentive!!! Thanks for making what could have been a horrible night...a great one!!!!
Great place , but it gets noisy at night...
Excellent location for good food and drinks with friends.
Okay place and food
Excellent service, food was wonderful. Noise was a bit much, but well with the meal.
The atmosphere is amazing. The staff accommodated our request to sit outside on a busy day. Sarah our waitress was fabulous!
Our food was great and the service was excellent! Highly recommended.
Good Food , good energy !
I usually love big city so I brought my new co workers there for Christmas work dinner and when we arrived the hostess told me they didn’t have my reservation (that was confirmed on open table) and actually blamed open table for the mishap claiming sometimes they don’t come through. Therefore we had to wait for a table. Then she made it seem like she went above and beyond to arrange a table for us. There were plenty of tables open?
Food is consistently great! Not too crowded which means you can actually carry on a conversation.
Great service and excellent food options
