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.

Worst trip to DUNE. New management has taken over and everything has gone down, would not return again after this last meal. It took 2 and a half hour for our meal of 2 courses. An hour between appetizers and mains. The waiter kept saying it will be out in 3-4 minutes and ended up being another 30 minutes after he gave that answer.

The food is top notch we enjoyed every dish they brought out. Worth the price and food is pricy due to location on the beach in one of Fort Lauderdale’s most expensive Condo. We used to go to the old version and this was an amazing upgrade.

A most welcome addition to Fort Lauderdale...upon arrival you are welcomed by a very attractive white themed decor. Well placed tables and comfortable seating. The menu is attractive, with unexpected Japanese dishes. Especially liked the branzino. There is an outdoor area in front of the beach. Very reasonable valet parking. The service was top notch. A far cry from most of the area's restaurants, that while reasonably good, are very standard.

Dune before the remodel was my favorite restaurant. Sad to say that is no longer the case. There were several issues, some of which could be chalked up to being newly open but not all. The happy hour wine selection was dismissal, they were out of tuna at 5pm, the wrong entrees were delivered to our table, no substitutions allowed for sides & just the overall awkwardness of wait staff standing by each table in the background made for an unpleasant meal. Sadly, we won’t be back.

It took 45 minutes to get a drink after being seated. The drink was not good. I ordered a margarita top shelf. I asked the waiter to have it fixed or changed. I was told, I’ll have to pay. We ordered appetizers, he came back 15 minutes later to say, they don’t have what we ordered. One person ordered Tuna, he came back no tuna. Their portions are much smaller from the last time I was there. Not as tasty as last time.

This is how they wrapped food to go. Horrible

Everything was as we expected. The ambiance, food and service were excellent. It is an upscale experience with a great energy to it. There were long delays in getting our food and items we chose would run out while waiting however the server, manager and owners were attentive and apologetic and did everything to make it right. We have not a bad thing to say about our evening - we had a great time and will be going back soon.

Enjoyed our dinner in lovely space with excellent service. Food is very good overall. We ordered gigantic shrimps, lamb chops and branzino. Lamb chops were best of the three. Seasoned and cooked well. Shrimp was slightly overdone. Branzino was not our fave though the person who ordered it liked it. I like my fish to be flaky and I thought it was mushy which leads me to think it may have been frozen. Overall it was very good. I come from Chicago where there is tremendous creativity in dishes and have yet to find that any where in this state. That said, the one recommendation I would make for the chef is to add more flavor to the dishes.
