We dine here often, the pistachio crusted grouper was amazing. We are not crazy about the front room because it can be noises due to the bar. But last night we were told somewhat abruptly by the host that they must fill the front room first! Never been told that before and did not appreciate it, we came close to going elsewhere.

The duck and lamb dish was amazing. The burnt roll was awful luckily our server changed it for us and we had another roll but weren’t to impressed with the sushi. Next time we will stick to food only

Cafe Sensei is sensational. Original interpretations of classic pan-asian dishes but also a menu of traditional Japanese for the purist. The interpretation of bao pork buns was scrumptious and original. The charred octopus was melt-in-mouth delicious. Beautiful plating, wonderful flavors combining tastes across asia. Definitely going back. Great location on the river, reminiscent of San Antonio Riverwalk in miniature.

This was our first visit to Casa Sensei. We had trouble finding a place to park. We finally downloaded the parking app to park next door but that delayed us a while.
The four of us sat outside on the patio, just above the canal which we loved.
Our waiter Alex, greeted us warmly and did a wonderful job throughout the evening. We loved the selection and the combination of Latin and Asian flavors.
All 4 of us loved our dishes. The lobster guacamole was good but it was extremely spicy. Next time I'll make sure to ask them to tone it down. We also had wonderful tostones and empanadas.
For our main dishes, two of us had the mojo marinated lechón, my husband had the Korean BBQ Bolgogi and our friend had the smaller version of the Korean BBQ which had less meat but more rice and it was cheaper than the other one. We were very pleased.

We went there to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary and we had the worst experience in a long time.
The seating was so uncomfortable, it was painful to eat in that position.
The appetizer was good but then we asked the pescado frito which was depicted as their specialty. The fish was probably not fresh at all, and it was so dry that seemed to had been over microwaved. It was served with romaine leaves just like you take them out of the bag, with no dressing whatsoever. A mess of a dish, disgusting presentation, and very bland taste. Obviously we won't come back. Do not recommend this place. Ruined our special night.

Casa Sensei is a unique experience similar to Kyu in Miami without the 3 week reservation wait. The food portions are relatively small but excellently presented and delicious. Service was extremely attentive without being overbearing.
Reserve a table opposite the bar rather than the back room!
The only downside are the non-bench chairs...way to low for the table height.

Bad service, rude attitude. Appetizers came before main dish. I said my allergies to broccoli the plate came full of broccoli
Waiter wasn’t attentive, was rude.
Food is down to average, overpriced.
Don’t waste time and money, don’t go!

I loved the ambiance of Casa Sensei but the service was just average. The food was pretty good but not worth the price in my opinion. There were also a lot of flies/gnats flying around which made the place not feel clean.

Very good Asian fusion experience, in a refreshing setting along The River in trendy Las Olas.
Get the Lobster Guacamole to start, as well as the Bao Buns. The Guacamole portion could be more generous as the chip to guac ratio was too disproportionate.
The Truffle edamame, also is very good.
The Fish Burnt, Buttered truffle and Lobster Komodo rolls were very good. All the rolls were ample in size. I recommend 1 roll per person and sharing as the rolls are ample in size (in contrast to the appetizers).
Great service all around by our server. Our hostess greeted us with a smile and suggested a great seating location too.
The main drawback for me was the price of the meal. It is a bit steep considering the meal. However, the value also includes the fact that I was able to have lunch with my daughters and beautiful wife, in a lovely venue along a quiet river in Ft. Lauderdale. There's a premium for that.

Very nice quiet restaurant with a different approach mixing Japanese and Latin food. It seems they focused a lot on making their food spicy which my wife and I loved.

Beautiful location along a canal in a quieter section of Las Olas Boulevard with elegant indoor and outdoor seating. We chose indoors because of the slight humidity on the day. Very interesting fusion of Latin American and Asian dishes - we ordered some of both - that blended very well together. All the dishes were rated highly by everyone in our group. Service was attentive and pleasant and ambience and lighting were pleasant and relaxing.

Provisional "yes" to a return visit. Overall experience was good (seated on the canal) but service and attention to detail was lacking. We were seated and waited at least 15 minutes for a server to come by. Eventually one of the waiters took note and took us on despite not being assigned our table. Clearly someone dropped the ball on the table assignment. I didn't see any front of the house staff on any fly-bys during our meal. Overall our food was good but modestly overpriced.
