Big City Tavern is a busy, vibrant restaurant reminiscent of the great urban taverns of Chicago, New York and Boston. A stylish, classic American restaurant, Big City offers a varied menu featuring dry aged steaks, burgers, fresh seafood, salads and fresh house-made pasta of the day. Some of the more popular dishes are the Pan Roasted Salmon with Tomato and the House-Made Charcuterie. The desserts are all enticing, all house made and all delicious. The extensive wine list emphasizes California varietals by the bottle or glass. With its magnificent grand bar always busy, Big City has a constant din of energy and conviviality. Big City offers outdoor sidewalk dining in the center of the action on Las Olas Blvd. If you have special needs, require high chairs or need assistance please notify us.

Please call the restaurant to make reservations for parties of 8 or more!

The meal was delicious. New safety protocols in place were unobtrusive. Service was good, and the fish and meatballs were terrific.

My food order came out wrong... They had to remake my steak and I had to eat after my husband was done with his food. The manager came by and we expressed the issue. There was no attempt by them to even offer dessert, or a drink or anything for the inconvenience. Very disappointed as we usually go there for dinner. Not the same since the quarantine.

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

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.

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.
