They were out of everything, even their featured “whole fish” item that takes up about half their menu.
I will not be critical because it has only been open a few months at best. Taking that into consideration I thought overall it was very good. I feel it needs to catch on before you can accurately evaluate the experience. The room was great looking and very calming. The menu needs a few more choices but overall it was an interesting menu. The service was great and very accommodating. I will be back .
Love the area the Decour and building are great but they just can’t seem to get this restaurant going
They were not even open! Another crappy hotel business messing people around…we were left with nowhere to go for lunch. Thanks idiots.
Very pretty setting in a lovely renovated 50’s hotel. No one approached us when we came in. We got the attention of the bartender who had us seated. We ordered the trout taco plate which seemed unique and fun. Make your own taco with all the fixings. $75 for 2. I was awful! The fish was deep fried and very crunchy . Not the texture to pull apart and make tacos. Truly, it was hard to identify the fish under all the fried crunch. One of the worst meals I can recall! We were so disappointed. We are locals and looked forward to trying some place new. Sooooo disappointing.
Great new place feels big city in a really cool neighborhood by the beach.
They got everything right- architecture, design, simple hood menu, indoor outdoor pool , sun or shade.
I’ll return many times.
fabulous new kimpton hotel - mid century vibe. botanic is beautiful. the food is very good. there are some vegan choices and others can be modified. current chef is vegan. opens up to pool area.
Quality of food was great however we were served one of our entries and the other was significantly delayed. Good etiquette required the burger to wait for the chicken dish for 18 minutes. The server was very accommodating however the burger was ultimately cold by the time the chicken arrived. Restaurant wasn't busy at all, not sure what the cause of the delay was.
Chairs were too high for table. Food was lack luster.
Hidden jem off the beaten beach path. Food was very good and service was good. Fish, chicken and pasta entrees were very well prepared.
A beautiful and relaxing environment. My hamburger was delicious as was the duck fat fries! Service was very good.
Super cool chill vibe of the restaurant inside and out! Lucas was our waiter who was excellent. As we all know it’s very hard to have decent service let alone excellent service in South Florida LOL The menu covered everything for whatever mood you were in. We started with the sausage etc. pizza which was excellent! That we did not expect. My wife’s steak was perfect. Pappardelle was delicious. Will be back🤙🏼
Food and drinks were amazing. Nice music so noise level was pleasant although the place was not full. They need to work on creating a nicer aesthetic with lower level lighting and quality of audio. Other than that, we really enjoyed this little hidden gem.
Food was excellent, tried several starters and drinks. Small patio by pool outside was romantic and peaceful. Would recommend trying
Great drinks, food, service and ambiance. 5 stars all the way around. Great veg options!
Great food! Service was poor to fair.
it was amazing and the drink dia soleado was incredible.
Amazing service but cold shrimp tacos and overcooked medium rare burger. Corey and Johnathan were incredible. Food needs improvement
Fantastic hidden gem 💎! Cozy social setting with beautiful view of courtyard. The staff took great care of us and were very knowledgeable, as well as great help with a food allergy. The food and flavors were over the top, perfectly prepared. Will definitely be going back ASAP!
Went for Happy Hour. Don’t. Just don’t. Music was spa music and it sounded like I was getting a massage. I politely asked bartender if he could change to some peppy/upbeat music and he said he asked the manager and “this is the best we have”. We finished our drinks and left! TERRIBLE VIBE. I so wanted to love this place since I live walking distance from them.
Won’t be back.
The food wasn’t good at dinner or by the pool. Very disappointing and had high hopes!
Hidden gem in Ft. Lauderdale. Great ambiance, service and a fantastic cocktail list.
Great food and service!
Food was phenomenal. Best meal we’ve had in South Florida in a while. If you’re a foodie, you’ll appreciate this restaurant. The decor is very well done and the flavors and cocktails are exquisite! Will definitely be back!
Right off the main drag of A1a, it’s a comfortable quiet spot for a nice meal in a newer Kimpton hotel. They always have a great vibe. An attentive and kind wait staff made it certainly a more enjoyable meal. While everyone has a brussels dish these days, there’s was a bit different for a change as they were served in a nice cream coconut and lime sauce. I would have like to seen the peanuts toasted a bit, but overall a nice dish. The watermelon and arugula salad was a big disappointment, there was hardly any watermelon, and what was there was mush. It needs a nice crisp. It was dressed with just olive oil it seems, no tang at all. My party had the burger, which was quite delicious served with hot crispy shoe string fries that were a hit. The dinner party features a whole fried snapper served as a taco kit with various accoutrements. The fish itself was delicious, substantial and had very little bones to pick through. The various sauces that accompanied were all flavorful and a nice addition as well as the mango salsa. The soft tortillas were unfortunately anything but soft, clearly not that fresh. For desert the botanic sundae is a scoop of fresh ice cream served over a delicious soft chocolate brownie that is just perfectly gooey. Overall a very nice visit, not rushing to return though.
The food needs some fine tuning, as does the quickness within which it come out - especially given we were one of only a small handful of tables. “Watermelon and Arugula Salad” had barely any watermelon in it and the watermelon was pickled - which needs to be stated on the menu, as we thought it had just gone bad. The guac was delicious but the serving size was too small for an app. The entrees were all delicious (curry fish, paparadelle). The berry
A gem of a restaurant, wonderful decor great service and delicious food. Get in here before everyone discovers how great it is. One of the best gluten-free pizzas I’ve ever had. And the cocktails were wonderful..
Server was very attentive and friendly. The Chef even came out to check on us. Ordered the following:
Butter lettuce salad - pretty good but the dressing is a little on the bland side (3/5)
Sweet corn salad - excellent (5/5)
Pappardelle with pork meatballs - average. Meatballs were extremely dense and small however plentiful. The entire dish was very close to room temperature (2/5)
Love pizza - excellent. Very heavy so be prepared (5/5)
Ricotta gnocchi - no bad. Needed salt, the creamy sauce overpowered everything. Also very heavy. (3/5)
Three scoops of sorbet - Variety of flavors were pretty good. They are a little small; three scoops is approximately 3/4 of a scoop anywhere else. (4/5)
Berry cobbler - average. Not sure if this was done on purpose but the berries were very tart, and not enough of the brown sugar crumb to compliment it. (3/5)
It was our second visit to the restaurant and our food was as good as the first time. The quality is consistent and the flavors are amazing. The chef even came out to greet us and discuss the diversity of the menu. We will definitely be going back to enjoy many more meals.
It was just ok. Nothing spectacular nothing terrible. Cost us $95 for two drinks, two apps, and one entree. It’s in a cute hotel that is in an converted two story apartment building located off the beach a bit west near the intracoastal. Dog friendly.
Beautiful decor overlooking the lush tropical plants amidst the swimming pool.
Great food, loved the gnocchi and the daily cheese platter with truffle honey
$10 to valet park
Less than Ordinary food for breakfast
Not for Locals but unknowing tourists might accept it.
Very nice hotel/entrance. The dining area was pretty- great view of pool- inviting bar. Some interesting craft cocktails on menu - tried the gin one, but exceptionally sweet. The menu offers a nice selection, albeit minimal. We tried the burger with duck fries that many have commented on, and yes, it's VERY good. The tuna sliders, pappardelle, and skirt steak were good. My only complaint would be the $10 valet charge.
Awesome, renovated, professional, great drinks and food, plus very swanky
Best place we ate in Fort Lauderdale
Each dish better than the last.
Gnocchi and snapper were fantastic.
If you haven’t eaten here yet you are missing out.
We will be going back before our vacation is over.
Went here for my birthday last night, was so wonderful!
Very quiet and relaxed for an evening dinner.
Loved the mushroom gnocchi !!! Best dish of the night.
Thankyou, for making my birthday special.
Great place, cozy
we eat next to the pool and it was nice.
Found this on open table and realized it was new. Decided to give it a try. Tried the fish ceviche appetizer. It was good. My bf had the flank steak and it was so good. I got the red snapper entree, it was good but I liked the steak better. We tried several drinks and they were all good
What a wonderful boutique restaurant. So happy to enjoy the atmosphere creative cuisine... Great service, great atmosphere, looking forward to going back
