Drinks were outstanding. We had the warm pretzel appetizer which was wonderful and the Pad Thai was very good. Better than expected from a non Asian restaurant. Definitely a place we will go again.

Good drinks, server was professional and helpful, everyone was pretty happy with their food (although a few that had the scallops over risotto special thought the scallops were a little too salty and a bit gritty- risotto was tasty). Overall good choice for our group.

Poached eggs over cooked, tiny muffins, small portion of salmon and lackluster hollandaise. Not worth $20. So noisy we could not enjoy the meal. Too many choices on Las Olas. Won’t be back!

Pasta bolognese was very good but not the best, but overall the meal was excellent. Service was also very good. Would recommend.

The server tried hard to keep up as it was Mothers Day. The appetizers were tastier than our entrees actually.

We were able to sit outside as per our preference. Another great experience. That is why we keep coming back after many, many years.

They then said it would be a 45 minute wait after our reservation for the table we requested in advance. Instead, we got a table the furthest from outside and next to the bathroom instead, very dark and secluded from people. The food and service was great and their brunch overall had some good deals, but the atmosphere wasn't what we were hoping for as a Saturday brunch place.

Lauderdale, FL. The overall experience is great...and the prices are very reasonable. They have a good wine list also. The service is exceptional with exceedingly friendly, courteous and prompt waiters. The menu items are prepared very well with a tasty selection to suit almost everyone's desire. People watching on the boulevard is right there if you want a seat on the sidewalk area. This is truly a place to visit when in South Florida.

Great food and fun ambiance, lots going on simultaneously between sports on tv, people coming and going, Las Olas with all its variety of cars and music in background, good time all around though. Definitely recommend, also loved the wall decor and old-school intricate metal ceilings!

Unbelievably tender. Loved it. The short rib sandwich was not what I expected, but it was tasty. Also, the server comped the birthday people dessert. I didn't care for it, but the other birthday person liked it. The not so great part - the lunch special was advertised as a grilled cheese sandwich with short rib meat. It was a short rib sandwich with cheese. To me, that's a distinction with a difference, because I'm not a huge meat eater. I didn't like the chicken tortilla soup (too thick and bland), and after waiting 25 minutes for the server to come by, I finally chased him down inside to get a substitute salad. And a replacement water bottle, which had been removed 30 minutes before. I didn't expect lunch to last almost two hours, but that is what happens when you are the only table on the patio for this server, who is working inside tables. I literally watched 4 tables turn over (3 seated well after us) while we were there. That was poor planning by the hostess (?). WIll I go back? Probably. It was good enough to get a second chance.

Street traffic noise was outrageous. The restaurant has no control over it but the city should put police officers in strategic locations to ticket cars that are purposely too loud as well as motorcycles. Have eaten lunch there in the past and thought the food snd prices were reasonable. Dinner prices definitely too high for the quality. Had excellent service, but we will not return.

Kid Personal pizza is a 12” six slice pizza for $15!! Kids drinks were NOT included and cost $4.50. Our server must have thrown Guys in every sentence she uttered at least three times, we were four “girls” and only two guys. So tiresome… Restaurant is empty and yet we were seated all the way in the back of the restaurant, next to the bathrooms and across from the servers rest area. Will not return.
