Big City Tavern - Las Olas Ratings and Reviews
This was my second visit to Big City Tavern for Sunday brunch. Terrible service both times. The servers were rude, short, and impatient. The dishes were dirty and had food stuck on them. When I pointed this out to the manager his only response was "okay...what else can I help you with?" No apology. It was like I was bothering him. This is probably why the waitresses are rude. A bunch of miserable people with watered down mimosas.
First time here and went for Sunday Brunch. Unlimited mimosas for $13 were more reasonable than some other places I have gone. The food was very good and generous portions. We plan to return for lunch and dinners. Service was very attentive considering it was super busy.
I normally love this place and have been going for 11yrs. And never a dispointment .For some reason my salmon was dry and tasteless and my husbands food was super salty. My Old Fashion drink was watered down, not the normal for Big City at all. Hope this was just an off night.
We are locals and very careful about where we dine. Every time we come here, we are so happy we did.
The food was wonderful! I ordered the tuna which had been highly recommended by a discerning guest from NYC who had loved it on a prior visit. It was as perfect as I’ve ever had. Premium cut, super/ fresh tuna with THE best veggies, including snap peas, bok choy and others. Menu says “wok/fried”, but these had no grease, just a ton of fresh taste. My husband had the Big City salad with fresh, large grilled shrimp on top. I tasted it — cooked to perfection.
The hostess noted our Open Table reservation and acknowledged a request I had made.
Our waitress was Lillian and she was great. Never rushed us, yet was very engaged — she even helped me decide between several entrees.
Highly recommended for a great meal, in a friendly, casual, well/organized restaurant with great atmosphere!
Our reservation was for an anniversary and was confirmed with staff however no one acknowledged our table for the special event - very disappointing!!
Food quality was very questionable, one medium rare steak arrived well done and new steak arrived after all were done with dinner, speghetti dinner was sticky and clumped together which had hard chewy spots, all meals were extremely salty and difficult to enjoy. We have dined here in the past and thought it would be a great experience for our friends first visit - they wont be back when there are so many great places to choose from!
The server was not friendly, and it seemed like she was "put out" if we requested something. On different occasions I asked for more water or a refil on my iced tea and again the server seemed very annoyed, instead of handing me the refill or placing the glass at my table setting she left the full beverage at the far corner where no one was sitting, and didn't make contact when she dropped off the drink. The foo was phenomenal, I had the short ribs and wedge salad and I couldn't be happier. My friend had the fish special and was extremely pleased. We ordered the warm apple turnover for desert and we're both very disappointed with the desert. The salads and main course were fabulous, the service has much to be desired and desert would receive a c-. I eat out frequently; I travel for work 95% of the time and if the service is bad and the food is great; I still would question going back to the restaurant. The quality of food and service both need to be goo for me to return to a restaurant.

The place is great with golf ambiance and decor. The food was great with excellent temp and flavor. The only complaint is the service. Our server when he did come over or you asked for something was great, but that's the issue when he comes over. I believe they don't have great attention or they where short staffed. I asked another sever and she looked at me and walked away. Probably explains why they place was not packed.
Go to Louie Bossi and the place is packed and service is better. They should work on this as it would be the only reason to keep me from going back. I sometimes rather better service and don't pay attention to the Food so much.
It's always amazing food and great atmosphere. But tonight the service was less than desirable. It stared with our waiter spilling the drink on my friends white pants. He also give us the wrong food. And by the time the right food came out other people's food at the table was cold. I have here a ton of times and always usually have a great experience but tonight wasn't the best.
