Usually very good. Maybe holiday weekend made it a little “blah”. Nothing really bad, nothing really good! Just a Ho Hummer!

The person who takes care of your table sets the tone for the evening. We very nicely asked this individual if she was our waitress. She responded in a sarcastic tone “we are not called that any more”. We then said, ah waitperson. She once again said, no, I am now called your server. Does going out to dinner now include a “learning experience” on words we should use in Ft Lauderdale. We were from Florida & New York. perhaps this restaurant should send out a list of words that are appropriate for their restaurant. Or the wait staff should be directed not to cause embarrassment to paying customers or cause that customer discomfort.

Went pretty early for a Sunday and it was quiet and not busy. Service was good but not very strong on their mimosa refill game. By 11am it was very crowded!

The food was excellent as usual. I had the pork chop which was fabulous. My wife had the short ribs which she loved. We started with the Prawn Special appetizer that was good, but not up to the standard of the entrees.

some really fun menu options, including prosciutto avocado toast (delish) and short rib grill cheese (great idea, poor execution). Even going peak lunch (12:15 reservation) we weren't rushed and service was great.

Great service and delicious drinks. Not too many choices for lunch. Felt a little limited.

The interior decor was interesting/eclectic; the vibe was energetic. Complimentary bread was good - clearly fresh and baked on premises. Wine by the glass list was very good. We had a very long wait between our starters and entrees 'because of a large party' - the manager and waitress both explained/apologized. I had ordered duck confit paparedelle and had not realized that it was a pasta dish. They offered to replace it but given that we had waited so long for our meals I didn't want to slow down the rest of the table. I'm on restricted diet so I just ate the duck and not the pasta. I didn't complain. The manager however came over and apologized and 'comp'ed' my meal and offered free dessert. I was very impressed by this gesture. The rest of my party enjoyed their meals.

Went with a few girlfriends for Valentine's Day. We were last minute looking for a restaurant to go to that could seat us at a reasonable time. Big City was all that was available on Open Table, so we took it. We were pleasantly surprised. It was definitely not what we were expecting. Our service was fantastic. Our food came out timely and accurately (a rarity for Valentine's day) and it was well presented and tasted fabulous. The atmosphere was lively, but that is what we were after. This is not a place to go on a quiet romantic date. This is a laugh as loud as you want, get me another glass of wine kind of place!

Loved the pad thai...light and fluffy. We live on Cape Cod and that crabcake was one of the best!

I have been to this place many times but the last time we went for brunch and Our waiter was AWFUL!

It took 10mins for him to come over, after I complained twice about not getting waited on.

Very disappointed with the service.
The food is amazing though and we all had great meals

The food was very good. If possible, ask for one of Christine's tables. She is worth the wait and will enhance your experience.

We found this restaurant online - enjoyed ourselves. They went out of their way to accommodate my wife's dietary issues and her need to change her chair due to back issues. Food was good too of course. Overall a good experience in hopping Los Olas area.
