Beautiful restaurant! We had the tuna ceviche for an appetizer. The sesame chicken and the surf and turf everything was spot on! The prices were very reasonable! When the bill comes, you get a large cup of cotton candy! Highly recommend making reservations here and if I’m in the area again, I’ll be back!

Just very average. You can get the same quality in most Chinese restaurants for a fraction of the price. We had stir-fry noodles, kimchi fried rice, steaks with fried rice, and shrimp and pork buns.

Reduce the menu and keep what you are really good at. You have the location and the staff!

The environment was great, by the canal with romantic ambiance. The food was delicious, although didn't impress me as much with the pescado fritto. The flavor was good but the fish wasn't as moist as it could've been. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The coconut cake dessert was very good, but too bad they didn't have french press coffee to go along with the dessert, so I settled for a straight espresso.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Casa Sensai this weekend. Our server, Frank, gave us great recommendations for food, was extremely polite, and overall the service was unmatched. We ordered the Sensai Rice which we highly recommend as well as the lettuce wraps. Would love to check out the sushi menu the next time we go!

First and last time on this restaurant.. The food was good, but really?… go and expend your money in another place, they don’t know and don’t have idea of what service means. First I put my name on the waiting list because it wasn’t a reservation open at that time (third on the list, good sign), we come in to the restaurant and they asked us to wait for the table , we waited by the bar and order a couple of drinks and after 30 minutes they told us our table is ready, a table outside that we saw empty since we come in, my boyfriend approached the hostess stand (around 5 hostess that they don’t know what going on) and asked them that why we are getting that table that no one wants with this “cold weather” and is been empty since we got to the restaurant and why they didn’t sit us right away (if it’s been empty), why we can’t have a table on the back that is been empty since we got here and it’s not cold and is inside of the restaurant .. of course they update they table charts and found out that was a bunch of tables open on the back of the restaurant.. we sat got our drinks my daughter Cherry temple took 30 minutes to get to the table the same with the miso soup because the server forgot we ordered rolls and the dish of the night we got to a point that we stop ordering because that food was taking forever.. asked for the check the service charge was already included for a table of 3 ppl.. in our way home we found out an extra 31.53 dollars charge from the restaurant, (so this means $53.75 gratitude) we got back to the restaurant after calling multiple times and none answered because it goes straight to voicemail.. so after talking to the manager we need to wait “24 hours” to get our money back.. so do yourself a favor and a void all of this situation and go to another place when you can have a wonderful evening and avoid all of this drama..

Food was fair at best. Two dishes came out cold. Very little flavor. Do not order the paid Thai. It has no taste. Server was below average and didn’t fill our drinks or offer clean plates. The tuna was VERY good. I have lived in Fort Lauderdale for 10 years and never came here because I heard it was fair. Definitely would not go back.

We’re regulars, have been about a dozen times. Casa sensei never disappoints. Frank was incredible, super friendly, checked in with us a bunch (on a very busy night mind you) and made sure our drinks were filled and we were satisfied with our order. If you’re in town and looking for Asian fusion this is the place to go!

We requested outside seating. When we got there we walked past several empty outside tables only to be told there weren’t any and they put us inside. I haven’t not been out to each much during the last two years and one of the things that makes me feel a bit more comfortable is sitting outside.

The servers were fantastic. The only thing I would do different for next time is order the appetizers and wait until they come before ordering the main course.

Sandy, our waiter was amazing. Both my husband and I celebrated our birthdays and he made it special. He has a great voice and service was awesome. Sandy also took the time to go over the menu and explain that each section comes from a different part of the kitchen so foods come out at different times. I’ve dined here before and didn’t know that. Ray is also wonderful as a waiter. We sat in his section at first but ended up moving for a better view of the water. He had no problems and was very courteous.

We took his advice on the courses and we were very impressed. Food was delivered hot and timed very well. We had an excellent meal and Frank made sure we were happy with choices.

We have been to Las Olas a few times and always saw the nice looking place that has waterside dining. Always wanted to try it.

Made 6:15 reservation and i was 15 minutes late due to traffic. When i called to tell them i would be late the hostess said NO PROBLEM. we arrived and were seated within 10 minutes.

Our server Vincent was on point. It truly felt like he loved what he does. He treated us like we were friends.

He recommended a toro tartar that was really good. Other dishes that were really good were the Lettuce wraps and the General Cho Chicken bites. My wife had the Sea Bass and it was awesome

Vincent The outdoor atmosphere and food made for a great evening

Thanks Vincent and the staff off Casa Sensei!

Our waiter, Frank, was excellent. He made great suggestions, answered all our questions, and promptly filled out drinks. The Sesame Chicken was crisp and tasty. My husband like the Churascho Beef but it wasn't anywhere near as good as the Sesame Chicken.

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!
