Always amazing! Great food, drinks and service!
Perfect for a date, birthday celebration or just a night out.
Love the location and the patio seating
Our maître d’was very friendly and accommodating and our server Media was friendly cheerful and very attentive to making our dinning experiencethe best it could be
This is one of those restaurants that can always be relied upon to produce good quality food at a reasonable price . Restaurant can be a bit on the loud side on the inside but lots of atmosphere or you can wait for a table on the patio and people and car watch on Las Olas.
One of my go to restaurants as a resident of Fort Lauderdale
Big City Tavern is always our go-to restaurant! It is consistently perfect!! And our server - Terry is the best!!
Service was atrocious. Had to flag down someone to get us a server. No silverware, then promised nonexistent bread. After taking main courses, came back after salads to say they lost the order? Had to reorder. Kitchen runner came with 3 orders. Waited 15 minutes for 4th main course. Wrong! Reordered then waited until most were done eating. Waiter was no where to be had. No apologies, never came back to ask how the food came out ultimately. A no show. Got the check; did take entree off but no communication with server that there would be an adjustment. A nightmare. Food was good but we will never return
We heard good things about the restaurant, was excited to try it. Unfortunately, the Las Olas Arts Festival hindered our reservation time. I wished the restaurant had given us a heads up. However, after our party made it. We enjoyed the food and drinks and good vibes. Will definitely return.
The portions are large and the presentation is beautiful!
Casual enjoyable decent food good service. Liked the big beer sign with all the old beer brands
Great!! Very recommend
I make sure to have at least one meal at Big City Tavern when I spend a week in Fort Lauderdale. The pappardelle with duck confit is to die for.
Great casual place with consistently good food & service.
Awesome food, service, and decor!!
Our favorite local go-to.
Always bring out of town friends and they LOVE it!
Always a great time at this energetic Bar and Restaurant. We usually choose inside seating nut the outside overlooking the busy Las Olas Blvd scene is also a great spot weather permitting.
BE prepared for large portions and delicious flavors as well! The service is casual Bar Friendly and you will find yourself in and out as quick as you want if you have after dinner plans.
Large tavern-type restaurant. Food well prepared, margarita (on National Margarita Day - only a coincidence) was excellent. I'd eat here again!
Too noisy to visit and food was average/disappointing!
Our salads, apps were great but one of the entrees was just not good. We have eaten here before and maybe it was just an off night for the Tuna.. all in all I really like Big City Tavern
This was our second time dining at Big City Tavern and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food tasted great.
This restaurant was suggested for us to meet with our cousins at a half way point for all of us. It didn’t disappoint.........we all enjoyed our salads and the restaurant. We would come again when in the area.
Thank you, from Naples, Fl
Everything was great. Take Servers recommendations.
Food Quality was outstanding.
Good food. Excellent location. Good service. Had a very enjoyable dinner.
This is my second time visiting this restaurant. I'm pleased with the ambiance, menu selections, quality and taste of the food. The server was very polite and attentive but overly reserved about promoting the happy hour specials. He then took the liberty of blaming it on management. Quite frankly, Happy Hour specials should be available to all guest rather than just those sitting at the bar. We tipped him well anyway.
Great brunch! From the host at the entrance to getting the check from the waiter, this place was awesome. Our waiter George was very helpful with his recommendations since it was our first time there. The food was amazing. The only picture I don't have is of the Asian wings we devoured. We'll definitely be back to try the dinner menu.
Excellent server. He was attentive without going overboard. Good place for everyday dining
We had lunch here and it was very good. I loved my Cobb Salad; one of the best that I ever had! The mimosas were very good and worth the money. Very noisy place but fun. Service was very good considering how crowded it was. A lively place for sure.
Food was good even though a couple of mistakes were made. My wife’s steak was overcooked she asked for medium rare it came out well done. My best friend asked for Sunnyside up eggs and he got poached eggs. The food was good even with the mistakes. The service was not the best. We have been here many times this was probably the worst experience we have had.
Very good food and service. We had a 8:30 reservations and were seated as soon as we got there which was amazing considering it was a Friday abs Valentine's Day!
Went for Valentine’s Day so was extremely busy. But in spite of the busy day, our server was excellent. Very nice and extremely attentive. Food was very good but not as good as the last time. Location and atmosphere are fantastic. Very enjoyable
This reservation was for Valentine's Day dinner. The attention paid by the wait staff (Thomas) was great as was the food. Wasn't too noisy as was expected for this event. Food was surprisingly good and served while hot!
Excellent choice of cuisine. Great atmosphere. Enjoyed immensely.
everything was great, service,ambience and most of the food. Stay away from the pizza!
Wonderful as usual!
always great food and a great atmosphere. Wonderful for small and large groups or just a cozy dinner for two. My favorite place on the las olas strip!
Caprese Salad, calamari and mussels were very good. Chicken cutlet dish was a little dry. Service was very good. Could use a longer draft craft beer list
We sat “outside” which was lovely, indoors tends to be quite loud. The service was wonderful and the food was quite good. We had the salmon filet dinner; the pappardelle with shrimp and the mussels in white wine with pasta .. all the dishes were nice. Drinks were good, all in all, very enjoyable.
We had a great boozy brunch with our family and had a great time. The food was yummy and the juices in the drinks were fresh. Our waiter and host were great.
Lively crowd. Upbeat vibe but too noisey for conversation.
Without question, the most consistently superb restaurant on Las Olas. From Ambience, to Food to service they never fall short.
The Skirt Steak is the best in South Florida. Chicken Milanese not far behind.
Great cocktail and wine list to complement the fine food.
Love the decor and the location of this place. I usually go for brunch and never been disappointed.
Great food , outstanding bartender!
The entire experience was marred by a group of extremely loud foul mouthed Australian group who took over the entire bar area. There behavior was unacceptable but the management did not intervene and everyone else had to suffer.
Great restaurant but please the ambience needs to be maintained and not allow a sports bar / lounge atmosphere. Extremely disappointing experience.
