they were very busy and the reservation meant absolutely nothing. When we told them we had a reservation they simply told us they had no table. We waited over an hour and they did not care at all. terrible customer service.

Perfect spot for a weekend getaway with my wife and our close friends. The food, music, and ambiance were amazing! We will definitely be back next time we hit Fort Lauderdale! The guitar player and dancer are top notch!

Went for a walk and stopped in. They had a table available . There was a guitar player and dancer that we really enjoyed while we dined. We had salad, fried whole red snapper, lobster with vegetables. Great way to end our vacation!

Family reunion. Great dj!! The food was just amazing. Though our waitress was too territorial, it was busy and I wanted to get some drinks and I couldn’t wait to get some shots for my cousins who I haven’t seen in 25 years. So I went to the bar, she scolded me for going to the bar. “If you are going to continue ordering from the bar, I cant take care of you”. Let me know if was just one order. What she didn’t know was that if she would have appreciated that I wanted to have a good time, she would have gotten a lot more tips. I take care of people of are kind and helpful. I still have her a 20% tip.

Very poor service. Waiter was very rude and never checked in on us. There are no prices for any alcoholic drinks and when we asked the waiter he said he couldn’t give them to us. Portion sizes were not worth the price at all. However music, atmosphere and being on the beach was great. Be aware of the COVID surcharge, service tip and tax added on to your bill without tip.

This restaurant is highly underrated. It deserves more attention. The breakfast is pretty straightforward and probably nothing to get too excited about, but the dinner is really vast and excellent tasting. We had a group of roughly 10 people, all whom seemed to order something different. The seafood pasta was out of this world. The mussels were very good. The diavolo sauce was unbelievably good. Mojitos were tasty. Calamari was terrific. Really everything was good except the kids cheeseburger was just okay, but this is not a place to go for a cheeseburger. For the seafood and more exotic items on the menu, the restaurant is tremendous and should be a destination in the area. The music is loud, but if you want an energetic atmosphere, this one will work great.

Here is one thing you need to know..: despite being on open table, they don’t use it. The hostess gave me some fugazi excuse like they don’t have the password. She wasn’t even apologetic about it.

The service and our server were excellent; very attentive staff and management visible. Reservations for outside seating is unusual for a Friday night but I was so happy they offered it! Sat immediately upon checking in with the hostess station. Food was absolutely delicious and hot. Ordered appetizers and filet mignon and salads; great flavors.

The only disappointing experience was receiving the bill with a COVID-19 charge of $3.85, which was not explained to us upon arriving nor was there any mention of the fee on the menu or visible in the restaurant. What is the fee for? Does the charge go towards purchasing masks for staff? Cleaning supplies that you should already have? In addition it was also a service charge of $28!!! Again there was no mention of this charge visible on the menu. It was like here’s your bill... I feel bad because the server didn’t receive a better tip as they should have. $33 bucks went right to the restaurant for the live band?

Went to this place in January and it was a nice lunchtime restaurant. Went there in March and it was a nightclub at daytime. With children in tow it just wasn’t gonna work for us. If you’re 21 then head there at spring break.

I mean this place is definitely not one for family on a Saturday night. While it was fun, it was super loud and directly on the strip of drunken college students. If you are a drunk college student, I highly recommend! The music was fun and entertaining. Food was horrendous. Seafood was bad (nothing like bad lobster and mussels to kill the vibe). Steak was subpar as well. Service was friendly but if you're looking for safe Covid practices or cleanliness this ain't your place either.

This is one of the good places on the Ocean drive for locals and tourists alike. Food is adequate though not exceptional. Mixed Drinks are on the sweeter and lighter side, so request changes if needed. They used to have great Spanish guitar performer Alex Fox, but last Saturday night there was mixed modern Latin music. People were dancing and having fun, it was a pleasure to be part of

We made a reservation for 8:30pm on a Wednesday evening for 2 people. We arrived at the restaurant 5 minutes early to check in. The hostess informed us that they had so many more people than they were expecting so it would be a 45 minute wait, despite the fact that we had a reservation, which was completely ridiculous. The management team clearly has no idea what they’re doing. We walked down the street to Burlock Coast and had a fabulous meal there instead. Won’t bother trying to come here again.
