Second time here was better than the first. The service was outstanding. It's a beautiful restaurant right on the beach. A big inviting bar. I had the salmon which was very good. My wife had monkfish. We had a couple of bottles of deranged red wine which was delicious. Prices are not out of line considering the quality of the restaurant. Would be back.

Totally a superb dinner all the way around. Our server Tony was excellent, was there when you needed him and was very accommodating. We had the shrimp and grits, a hamburger, and a ribeye you could die for. Awesome night!!!

Beautiful location and decor. Excellent service. However, the kitchen was extremely slow. It took us over an hour and a half to receive our main brunch items. others around us who came in after us we're seated ate their brunch and had paid and left and we still were sitting there without our food. When we finally got the food three-quarters of our table had dry and tasteless food. The restaurant did make amends and replaced some of the items with freshly cooked food. A major disappointment for a special occasion.

Great dining experience but they have to do something about their valet!!! Should not be so difficult to have complimentary...gives a bitter taste after such a wonderful dinner.

I really love the swanky atmosphere of this place. It’s makes you want to dress up for a fabulous night out. The food is also fabulous. The Crab Spatzel is a must to start with. We had the Monk Fish and Snapper for our entrees. They were both very flavorful and the fish was cooked to perfection. We had a very attentive waiter who was very helpful in picking our entrees. The only negative was our table. The tables for 2 are just not in great locations on the restaurant floor.

I'd only recommend sitting at the outside bar. It's a beautiful setting, nice drinks and you can get food from the bar menu as well as from the inside menu. Both times we've been to this restaurant, they seat us on the right side of the restaurant. Every time the door opens, which is every minute or so, which leads to the outside bar, you get this blast of wind. They wouldn't seat us on the other side as that was reserved for later reservations. However, when we left at 7:30 p.m., plenty of tables were full. The service wasn't great this time. Our waiter was gone for long periods of time, the bread was dense and thick and really didn't taste like anything.

Great food, great ambiance. My only issue was parking. Valet required but they won’t take cash. Have to log on their site and pay with a credit card. Won’t take Amex either. Dune should comp the parking. We’ll still be back but probably Uber next time.

One of the meals - Red Snapper was fishy and dry. They replaced it with another dish but that dish came after everyone had finished eating. Still charged for the replacement dish but took the Snapper off the bill. Halibut and black bass were great. Skirt steak was ok.

The food was mediocre at best. My wife and I have been to your restaurant in Napa many times and this wasn’t close to being as good. The dessert was not good at all. The entree was fair at best. The appetizer was very good.

I am a regular fan and customer of DUNE, however upon my most recent visit the new experience with and valet charge added to the experience seems, out of place. The valet company is the first impression now in a way that was rude, immeditaly requesting I use the app, I can pay that way but don't tip on it, we want cash. Then for it to no longer be validated - the arrival to this lovely experience use to feel no fuss - now you feel rushed and it's annoying to be force to valet. There should be an option to self park if there is now a charge . Giving up personal phone numbers to a valet company feels like a violation to personal information.

Went for Sunday Brunch. Four people in our party. The food was excellent. The service was good. The only problem we had was the valet charge. I think $8 ($10) with tip is way to much to pay to go eat at your restaurant. So 4 of us met there because we live in different parts of town. $40 for parking. No good.

What a happy surprise! I didn’t expect to like Dune as much as I did, and initially I had concerns about the service as we waited a very long time for someone to take our drink order at the bar. Then when the hostess came to get us she didn’t even offer to help us carry our drinks. But when we got to our table everything improved dramatically. Our server Martin was fabulous, as was the rest of the staff that brought out our food and drinks and kept our water glasses full. We shared the bone marrow, shrimp tostada, octopus and chocolate bomb for dessert and everything was fantastic! Incredible experience and we will definitely be back!

One of our favorite places to go. We enjoyed the beach grill which had lobster, steak, scallops, and lamb chops and of course the dessert was amazing. We sat outside and it was very delightful.

I was not impressed - food was ok but not special. They need to decide if they are a restaurant or a sports bar! Very noisy and loud if you are dining by the bar - had to ask the manager to speak to a few frat boys yelling profanities while the rest of us are trying to enjoy dinner.

Server had to change our wine and pours a different brand into same glass - wha???

The top restaurants in FTL do not have to worry about this place cutting into their business.

I will not be returning!!!

This is a great spot for many occasions even if it's just weekly visits just for the ambience at happy hour.
The bar inside and the outside bar a very pretty areas.
Great views and creative menus make it a great spot. I'll be back.
I do wish with dinners they would validate the $8 parking

Having had some "hit n miss" visits of late I had my first brunch at Dune recently. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased. Everything was delightful (slipshod and pricey valet notwithstanding). The menu had standard and inventive twists on the standards. I really liked the fixed price wine option - but wish you would add a white offering - especially a dry one. Service was attentive but not intrusive. In fact the server (Valentino) was among the best compared to previous visits. I will return for sure

We were seated by an open door with much breeze. Server did not greet us for 20 minutes. We asked the waiter helper to get a server to the table. They didn’t seem to care we were there. Spent $300 and got Taco Bell service.

It was our third time visiting Dune. The food was very good as it has been. Regarding service, the host and our waiter seemed particularly snooty - which was unusual from prior visits. Waiter warmed up a bit, but seemed disingenuous....disappeared during our entire meal, requested additional drinks from another waiter, never had water refills, returned at the end. The real catch now is the new policy for valet parking which is no longer comped for restaurant patrons. For the value, there are an equal amount of excellent dining experiences in Fort Lauderdale that provide great food, great service and value without the nickel and dime approach.

Everything was amazing. One of the best meals that we've had in a while and we've had a few all over the world. The entire staff was very attentive to my daughter (daddy/daughter date) and made her feel welcomed. John was a great host and made a few excellent recommendations, off menu. Thanks all for a pleasurable experience!

The restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a special wine tasting room that’s warm and inviting.
I went to celebrate my 40th Birthday with my husband.
We ordered the Beach Grill which was a variety with interesting tastes.
We were however disappointed with the filet which was part of Beach Grill as it smelled so bad and one bite we new it was spoiled.
We didn’t let that ruin our evening!
We would definitely recommend this beautiful restaurant with amazing menu choices.

We celebrated our anniversary at Dune and they couldn’t have made it more special. Lots of special attention, complimentary champagne and dessert with a candle. The food was outstanding and the staff was lovely. We’ll be back.
