Sat outside - right on the beach. Great weather, great ambiance. Our server was named Aldo and was very knowledgable about the menu and the wines. I had the rack of lamb with tzatziki - delicious! Everyone else has fish (grouper or snapper) and everyone cleaned their plates. Will be back.

We arrived at 11:30 am for Brunch,

The restaurant is very attractive, modern and fabulous location.
We were quickly seated by a pleasant host staff. The restaurant was nearly empty.
Our server was not friendly and not attentive to the table at all for an upscale restaurant.
We ordered crabcake eggs benedict and serrano ham benedict. They arrive in about 15 minutes time and were cheerfully delivered by restaurant staff, not our server.
The plates were nicely arranged but looked as if they were held in heat lamps for a while. Not a fresh appearance. The hollandaise sauce had broken and was no longer a creamy topping to the eggs. On each dish one of the eggs was hard cooked ( not at all runny) and the other was a little less cooked. Oddly, the crab cake was cold making me think it was undercooked. Breakfast potatoes were tender and flavorful but very salty. Our server was nowhere to be found even in an almost empty restaurant. We ate some of each meal. Then our server returned to clear plates and said how was everything. We replied disappointing. We had hoped for WOW meal to celebrate International Women's Day. The server said that she was sorry we did not like the food. A more appropriate remark might have been I'm sorry that it was not prepared correctly. She offered us a free dessert. A delicious profiterol.
Overall impression was this is another luxury location with a marginal food restaurant. The decor and location are awesome, restaurant is elegant but they fail to deliver. Service staff training is lacking for high end establishment. Our food experience was poor.

Celebrated my friend’s birthday there! Everything was perfect! The food, service, restaurant decor all excellent!! Requested a special table for our group and they accommodated! Also the owner sent over some additional birthday desserts making the nite extra special! Highly recommend the steak and fish. I had the shrimp and grits and the Branzino - delicious! My guests loved the grilled octopus, veal chop and steak dinners! Everything on the menu is delicious! Our waiter, Valentino-very nice! Highly recommend! Will definitely be back soon! Also heard the Sunday brunch is fantastic here! Will check it out! Thank you for a wonderful evening!!

Server was poor - the red snapper was served raw/ not cooked

Management made it right and didn’t charge for it,
But didn’t expect that for an established high end beachfront destination

Very disappointed

I googled’ best restaurant in Ft Lauderdale’ and ended up here. The restaurant is hidden on the ground floor in what I presume is a pricey high rise. Our Uber driver missed the place twice . The entrance is a cold yet impressive walkway leaving you wondering if you’re going the right direction.
We were early figuring we’d have a drink at the bar first. The bartender was handsome and friendly and very knowledgeable about his wares.
After the drink we were sat in a bit of an awkward section along a bench you’d share with others but not wanting to be difficult accepted willingly. Of course as luck would have it they sat a family with kids next to us . Shouldn’t a family have their own table so they don’t have to shush the kids the entire night and get them to sit still?
The food was good but not outstanding. The service was attentive. The bill wasn’t that bad either considering. I’d go there again but maybe ask for a nicer table . Oh and they didn’t have half the bourbons or scotch on the menu?🤔

We went for our Anniversary, at first were directed to a small table in the side room, but after speaking with the manager we were then given a booth which made our night much more enjoyable. The service was great, the ambiance excellent, there were many well dressed people and music from the bar area. Highly recommend Dune for a memorable occasion or just a casual meal or drink.

A windy wet night meant indoor dining - and given the oceanfront location - a big disappointment. Actually, even in good weather, with sunset by 7:00pm, there wouldn’t be much to see.

I went for the $65:00 rib-eye and 2 friends had skirt steak and rack of lamb. All good, but no better. I’ve bought and grilled rib-eyes from BJ’s that were better.

Our server, River, was also good enough, but not outstanding.

Overall, I would only return for an outdoor lunch to share the ocean view with out-of-town visitors. .

This is a beautiful restaurant on the beach where the food is delicious and the service is excellent. We've had wonderful meals there on multiple occasions with either Tony or Sibyll as our servers. This is a great place to take out-of-town guests to give them a fabulous beach experience.

The food and service were excellent but valet parking was an issue for the second time in a few weeks. I was at the restaurant on 1/15 and the parking app did not work for my colleagues and me and we had to wait approximately 30 minutes for our car. On 2/16, the app worked and I requested the car from the table. It took another 25 minutes and the restaurant was not crowded, and there was no one else waiting for a car.
