                                                    Restaurant is inside the hotel lobby. I stood at the host stand for 15mins and no one ever acknowledged us or came to seat us. We left and enjoyed brunch somewhere else.

                                                    Service was exceptionally slow and by the time we got the pastries that we ordered, we were all pretty disgusted to find out that they were not cooked all the way through when we bit into them. They were barely apologetic and we decided to walk out after it had taken 25 minutes before we even got the under cooked pastries. We ended up eating somewhere else. Not surprising that there was no wait at all for this place for Sunday brunch as other than the captive hotel guests, locals would not go back there.

                                                    A great little tucked away gem! Great atmosphere with excellent service and small plates to share or great pizza!

                                                    Disappointing night. Apparently the chef recently left, the drinks were mediocre (matching the food), service was slow, and a child was yelling at the top of his lungs.

                                                    Our reservation was at 7:30 on a Wednesday night. When we ordered our dinner, the restaurant was out of 3 entrees and had no pizza dough. I’m vegetarian so i just ordered the pasta without meat. When the bill came they charged me full price for the dish even though i had no meat on it. When we said something, the manager took off $3.00. Really? We were there with good friends so luckily our evening wasn’t totally spoiled. I would recommend calling ahead if you go to make sure they are serving what’s on the menu.

                                                    Food took way too long to come out, they were clearly understaffed in the kitchen and in the dining room. Food was too basic to be fairly priced the way it is. Cesar salad could have been from a supermarket pre-made bag and guacamole tasted like supermarket also.

                                                    The restaurant cancelled Christmas lunch reservation...no one at restaurant to even tell us they were closed due to staffing problems. No text or email to let us know to not bother showing up. Sent us to 8th floor pool (nice view) where we ate chicken Caesar salad at the bar to the sound of blaring dj music. Not happy. All would have been fine with a text, an email and or a phone call. Really poor customer service. Changes these days, understood...lack of communication with three ways to contact me, not so much.

                                                    I went for first time in Mid Dec 2021. Botanic is in the Goodland Hotel about 2 blocks from the beach in the Central Beach area of Fort Lauderdale. I don't remember seeing a sign outside. The food was good. I had snapper and it was excellently prepared. The restaurant was much larger than I expected with a good sized bar and an outside area. I expect to return sometime soon.

                                                    We selected the restaurant because it was local to where we were staying for Thanksgiving and as a fan of Kipton hotels I trust their culinary options. We really enjoyed the Turkey dinner but I would suggest next year you add a fresh cranberry sauce or relish to make the meal perfectly complete. It was very good but as for tradition, that was an obvious missing component. The cocktails also were terrific! We came back again for dinner on Saturday night! I will perhaps book a stay at the hotel next time. I hear the 8th floor has a fabulous pool with a killer ocean view and pool bar. 🍸

                                                    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 .

                                                    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.

                                                    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.

                                                    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.

                                                    Amazing service but cold shrimp tacos and overcooked medium rare burger. Corey and Johnathan were incredible. Food needs improvement

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!
