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.

Everything was wonderful except the Beach Grill at the next table. The fumes were noxious. They need to find a different way to serve that dish.

We went to celebrate a 70th birthday. We chose a booth outside. The service was excellent and the food was beautifully presented and excellent. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. We did think the wine and cocktail prices were quite high.

This was my first time at this establishment. The beach view is amazing although it was too windy to sit outside. The food was excellent. The Crab Spatzle and Hangar Steak were excellent. A very good wine list. The cocktails are very creative and I highly recommend the Amber Light. The only negative is that we had to wait 45 minutes for our table due to other guests lingering at their tables. We were not the only ones who had to wait. But, the manager did come over to apologize. We will return to this restaurant.

Everything we had was excellent- crab spatzle, tuna crudo, roasted chicken and steak! The atmosphere is lovely. The service was good but felt a little “scripted”. Would definitely return.

This was the third time I have been to Dune. The prior two times were fair and I chalked it up to it being a new restaurant. I would have thought they would have had their act together by this point given their price point and location. I was wrong. We were first seated at a table by the door to the beach and were constantly being hit with warm blowing air as people went in and out. They did finally move us to a different table. Food was served cold and some of it was undercooked. The assistant manager kept making excuses. We had to wait about 20 minutes for desert which was only ice cream. Our waiter disappeared during the second half of our meal - we suspect he was busy with other tables as the restaurant was very busy. Finally, the manager came over who was more accommodating and comp'd part of our bill.

We have given this restaurant three chances and at this point, we will never go back. This place was very disappointing.

Amazing as always. It was my wife’s birthday and we enjoyed the beach grill which was phenomenal. Lobster, scallops, filet slow cooked on a mini grill finished with an amazing flan dessert that was to die for. Great service, great food at an amazing location on the ocean.

This is NOT quality or service of California Auberge! Valet took 1/2 hour to park. Asked for window seat and placed by door with service table behind us (they did move us to center table). Servers brought wine in wrong glasses (CA affiliate would be aghast). Cocktails were wrong. Main course and octopus very good, but side dishes an ok afterthought. Manager came over to apologize and said would oversee service. Not done. This was a birthday, and servers brought small sweets to neighboring birthday table, but not ours. For prices charged, there are many other waterfront options that have service and management that can provide good service and phenomenal food. Very disappointing. We love Auberge in CA.

Dune was amazing! Fortunately we got in to eat there - we were the last table and satiated very late and can’t wait to return for an earlier dinner because there ambiance will only be that much better - Sharon was our server and she was amazing! The yellowtail and octopus apps were scrumptious and oh the homemade chocolate chip cookies are to die for

The design and setting of this restaurant is stunning, the service is professional, and the delicious and unique food justifies the beauty of the ocean-front setting. The restaurant is extremely well-managed and the staff is well-trained.

We really love this place but the wait staff really need to be trained on how and when to approach their tables. Too much congregating around the serving station and the waiter was hovering over our table the entire time.

Dune is very pretty in a simple way. With lots of windows and being on the water - you don't need to do much. The food was very delicious. I had the tuna crudo appetizer for $15 - excellent and different than other places but it was really just 3 tiny bites. For dinner I had cobia which was also excellent and it was a fine portion (not big not small) and it was $30 something (not sure of the exact price). Bottled water was $8 (less than $2 at the store) and I had a latte. So dinner was $72 with tip. I don't want to sound like a cheapskate - I am happy to spend that much for dinner. But I do not feel it was a $72 dinner - especially with the waitstaff wearing jeans. But I will say the service was excellent and management came by twice to see how was were doing.
