Our waiter was exceptional. Lobster/scallop roll fresh and delicious! Steak was a bit fatty and not very flavorful.
Popcorn and cotton candy- nice touches!

I thought the experience overall was excellent!I didn’t appreciate how the hostess that sat us gave a two ultimatum for dinner!I understand the need for that but the way it was presented was rude and can be delivered in a more appropriate manner!

I wanted to like this restaurant more than I did. First, they sat us at a dirty table. It had not been wiped down and clearly had sticky sauces and leftover rice on the table. It took 10 minutes for the waitress to acknowledge us and we had to distinctly ask for the table to be bussed. The food was just ok. The lobster guacamole is nothing more than chips and guac with a few skewers of lobster tail. The flavors don’t go together and the grilled lobster tasted best on its own. The bao buns (coconut shrimp), sesame chicken, and cheesecake were pretty good. The noise level was high, and it’s disconcerting to have your back to the bar where people are noisily gathering and ordering drinks/food. The food comes out quick and we were in and out under 90 minutes. It wasn’t the fine dining experience that we expected. You can get this level of service at any chain restaurant.

We had a wonderful experience at Casa Sensei. The service was impeccable. our glasses were always full, the recommendations were spot on, and the servers were very friendly. The food itself was outstanding. We brought my father there to celebrate his 66th birthday and his retirement from being an executive chef. He was fully impressed and that’s saying something. We ordered from both the sushi menu and the Asian Latin fusion menu and everything was delicious!

We had reservations and was 20 minutes late being seated. A large group ahead of us had both hostesses’ full attention. They kept forgetting us and when we asked about our seats, the hostesses looked angry that we would even question the delay.

So our initial impression was not good - felt forgotten, our business wasn’t needed. Being our first time to try Casa Sensei, we felt our experience was not going to be a good one.

Once we were seated, our server was excellent - he was helpful, fun and attentive. He really saved the experience!

Arrived and was able to be seated indoors even though I had reserved for outdoors, but the weather wasn’t ideal. Our server was such a delight and went above and beyond attending to us! Food was so amazing, mimosas were on point!

Great service, however food wasn’t all that in my opinion.
PF CHANGS Mongolian beef taste better.
Ambiance and the outdoor dining is what makes the experience interesting.

The service was less than par. While it’s easily understood that staffing is an issue all over the country , the quality of service should never be affected by the number of people working. For example, your main entree should not come 30 minutes before your appetizers, soup, salad, etc.
In fact, those never came.

Food (from scratch kitchen) and sangria were great! We sat outside along the water and the atmosphere only added to the great experience. Sandy, our server, was an absolute treat. He made great suggestions from the menu, and helpful suggestions for visitors from NYC to Fort Lauderdale in general.

I took my mom to Casa Sensei for her birthday and we had a great time. Our server Mark was very knowledgeable, patient, and kind. My mom and aunt weren’t familiar with the menu but he was happy to explain and I was grateful for that. We enjoyed the Pescado Frito which must have been at least two pounds of snapper! It was fried perfectly and tasted great. My aunt had the sea bass and she enjoyed it thoroughly. My family is hard to please when it comes to food and they gave Casa Sensei two thumbs up.

Had a very nice evening at Casa Sensei. My server Mark was great - very knowledgeable and able to make some good recommendations. Also followed up with requests along the way. I had the coconut shrimp bao buns, which was a surprising combination that really worked, and the Korean flank steak, also delicious.
The setting along the canal is delightful. Great spot!

We enjoyed our meal at Casa Sensei. The only thing to note that we were celebrating a birthday, which we made clear on our reservation and this attention to detail was missed the hostess, server and assistant servers. Other guests celebrating their birthdays were recognized but not us.

Overall, it was a good experience but this would have made the difference.

Waiter walked away in the middle of me talking after we waited almost 15 for him to come to our table. Forgot our beer we ordered(never brought it), had to ask for plates and chopsticks 2 times with food sitting in front of us with nothing to eat on or with. Never came back to check on us until the end. Food was ok but most dishes lacked flavor. Presentation was nice, but food was underwhelming.
