What a stunning restaurant- the design is truly fresh, elegant , and just superb. Sybil and Francois made our night- both so warm, so friendly, I felt like I had known them for years.

The bread service- isn’t great.
Our entrees were flawless and VERY good. Espresso martinis were perfect, and the desserts we had were excellent as well.

I was a little disappointed in the lack of “ add ons” for my dinner entree- I wanted to do a surf and turf- I was told can’t add scallops, shrimp, or even a lobster tail. This seemed weird to me considering every other high end restaurant allows you to add these types of things to your entree at an additional cost.

Great spot, and with some tweaks on the menu and some more variety I would make it a regular spot.

Gorgeous decor and amazing food but portions are very small. Service terrible. They clearly can’t hire staff as the two we had were pulled out of retirement and forgot parts of our order and took 20m to get our bill.

We enjoyed our meal, but the pours from the bar were weak. I had two glasses of wine, the first was much smaller than my second. My partner had the same experience with his Rye drink.

Second time visiting this restaurant. First time was disappointing but wanted to give it another chance . We love the atmosphere. This time was had the salad with lobster and shrimp, the chicken, the giant shrimp and the grilled Caesar salad. All were very good. We also had the spicy margarita and the tropical sangria. Both were very good. The margarita was served in a bourbon/whiskey type glass which I did not understand. It was a small serving. But, it was very good I had 3 :)
Would recommend. By the way the first time I had a hamburger because I was not really in the mood for anything else Chef had on the menu. It was a good hamburger though.

Once again we had an excellent experience at the restaurant. Michael our server was very attentive and we wanted for nothing. The decor and atmosphere is perfect for a beachfront restaurant. The food is exceptional - have never had a bad food experience so far. The manager is great as are the owners who are very attentive as well. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.

There isn't a nice ambiance in Fort Lauderdale than Dune. Access to reservations is limited due to Covid labor and kitchen staffing. As a result the menu is slightly limited. That being said, the service was excellent as was all the offerings on the menu.

The new DUNE is a place you should definitely try. We arrived to CELEBRATE my daughters birthday and had 1 more than the reservation was made for. We were immediately accommodated and seated even thou we had 1 unexpected! It only got better from there. We ate outside on the covered patio with a heat lamp nearby. We got there right before sunset so the view was incredible. Our server was on his game and made sure we were well attendee too. The appetizers were delish and the main course even better. The wine list had a great selection of Cabs that we love. Midway thru our meal the GM , Joe Alfano came by to introduce himself and make sure all was perfect and it was. We dine out The service, the food , the ambiance all 5 STAR!We love fine, casual dining and this checked off all the boxes. Our booth was semi circular and comfortable. We are locals and we will make this one of our go to dining spots. Bravo Laurent Tourondel for making DUNE what it should be! The team was on point and in this day in age when service is not a priority Dune has nailed it!
A great dinner and great time was had by all.

1) Although the ambiance was beautiful, I was seated at my favorite booth inside in the corner, however I was warned by hosted I'd better be done eating by 8:00 so she could seat the next party. (my reservation was at 5:30) was that comment necessary? O didn't think so
2) I don't like eating dinner next to dogs. (full grown Labrador retrievers) That just kills the "fine dining" experience.
3) Although the greek salad was beautifully presented, there wasn't enough on my plate to even be considered a Tappa ( 1 slice of Cucumber cut in 1/2, 3 cherry tomatoes cut in 1/2 and 3 slivers of red onion , however the feta in abundance)
4) Disappointed you don't have any veggies on the sides menu
5) Your cocktails are watered down (at least the Martini's are) as we had 2 last night
6) The salmon was delicious!!!
7) And although you were short staffed, service did not suffer.
Otherwise we had a wonderful time
We will try again and hopefully have a better experience....

If you want to talk about a glowup — this place has done it 100% right with their post-pan reconceptualization.

From our outdoor seats to the fact they’ve succeeded in maximizing all the space they have (compared to pre-pandemic) this feels like a very happening place, yet very safe to access. Everything we ordered exceeded our expectations in terms of taste and presentation.

Our vote is: “GO!” You won’t be disappointed.

The cherry on the cake: a former server of ours has been promoted to manager — way to go Dune for appreciating your staff and grooming them!

We can’t wait to go back.
