We liked the place, the service and the food, the only thing we didn't like were the cocktails, too sour and with too much ginger we couldn't taste the alcohol.

We had brunch yesterday and it was FANTASTIC. I've been before, but I have relatives visiting so it was new to them and they thought the food was amazing as well as the service. Our server, Paige, was an absolute PERFECT server. She was attentive, friendly, and got everything right. I wish I could have service like hers every time I went out somewhere. Overall a wonderful experience :)

First time back to Big City Tavern since COVID. Aside from the fact that there was ZERO social distancing the overall experience was a disappointment. We have always feasted on the beautiful charcuterie cheese and meat platter which used to include interesting breads, cheese thins, and lovely accompaniments. We were served a dumbed down version with just one bread Choice, 1/4 of a sliced apple, exactly one strawberry and tiny portions of cheese and meat for $40! The special pasta ravioli was nice. The waiter did not offer to refill our drinks. It’s not what it used to be at all.

Food is normally very good but not today. Salmon was cooked too hot and too long. Brought me a glass of wine that had been opened for several days although they did replace after a long wait. Didn’t care for the blackened seasoning on GFs yellowtail which was too thin for blackening IMO.

Overall great meal. Watermelon margarita was phenomenal, great calamari, and our entrees were solid. Very good portion sizes, a little expensive for what it was, but tasty food. Would’ve liked to sit outside, inside was a little dark but overall great experience, would definitely recommend or return.

Great server and food. Our table was right by the bar and a group was super loud and yelling/screaming when talking and one person was way over served and falling all over others in his group. Just ask not to be seated by the bar - super loud place anyways, but this was too much and not enjoyable.

Very high energy but the tables are very close together and the decibels are pretty high. The ceiling could easily have sound absorbing features and be architecturally pleasing. Great food, awesome staff, and nice ambiance. We will definitely return.

We had a really nice time at the Big City Tavern for Sunday Brunch. Everything was delicious. My only complaint was our table was a little small for our group of 5. Ambience was also nice.

I come to BCT fairly regularly, it is one of my favorite spots on Las Olas. I made a reservation on this occasion because we had our dogs. They were able to seat us outside, despite being very busy and were very accommodating. I love the brunch options here as well, the foot never dissapoints. I will definitely keep this place in my regular rotation.

I have been here many times before and have enjoyed the service. Although yesterday was a total different case. I had to flag down 3 people to find my waiter. We were waiting 15 minutes. When she finally came around she apologized for making us wait. Then took our order and continued to make us wait for our food, made us wait for our drinks. It was just terrible service. She was polite but not attentive at all. Every time we needed something we had to flag other employees to find our waitress. It was just not professional or enjoyable at all.
