ETARU Fort Lauderdale
Etaru is a beautiful space with excellent food. The happy hour deals are great. The bar can get very lively, but the dining room remains calm and relaxing. As for the service...Caesar took such great care of us! He is knowledgeable and truly understands customer service.
Awesome meal and service!
Everything about Etaru was amazing! We’ve been wanting to try it for a while and it did not disappoint. The Kampachi sashimi (signature dish) was the best! We’ll definitely be back
We sat outside ... too noisey inside. Had the CRAVE menu and it was fabulous. An outstanding value!
The food was great, however, the noise level was so terrible That we had to eT outside on a rainy evening. The hostess never heard my name, because she obviously never checked me in. I had called to tell the hostess that we would be an hour late. She had marked me as a no-show and when I got there, I realized that she could not of heard one word either on the phone or when we arrived. The music which was very dissed tasteful and the noise level of the people was impossible to tolerate. The food is excellent, but unless they change the Music and the volume, I can’t imagine going back.
The food is great and service. The place is very loud.
Overall is a good place.
Overpriced, very limited menu, very small portions
food was good and served hot . would have given this a five star review other then where we were sat was not far from outside door which they keep open and made us very warm even with the a/c on. Keep in mind if you want to sit inside.
Great Service all the way to the manager. Food was delicious!
Best brunch ever! Super service, fresh seafood, WoW
Great food and the guava cheesecake is amazing. Service was great and the manager came be to ensure everything was as expected.
Noise level extremely high! Tables for two were VERY close to each other. We opted to sit at sushi bar which was not as nice as a table but at least we were able to converse privately.
Great food, but overpriced despite its quality. Service was very average. Atmosphere, pleasant but casual.
The service was poor, the branch buffet empty.
The service was awful
This place has been very expensive since day one which we had no problem with. It was one of our most favorite restaurants it has gone seriously downhill. We were so disappointed the last couple of times we went to the menu has changed it is plain and horrible and completely overpriced. Clearly they lost all of their cooking talent and people who buy the food because the quality has completely degraded and this place won’t be here very long unless they get back to their original month when I first open and that quality and level of food service and choices. This place used to be packed it is now empty because everyone is Setting the same thing
Worst restaurant ever!!!, service is horrendous, our waitress spend the time talking to another table and just came to try to sell, she did not have any idea about the menu, the prices are extremely expensive compare to the quality of the food, portions are extremely small.
A restaurant with those prices can’t have waiters who don’t know the menu.
My impression is They won’t survive, unless they hire a very discipline management who take control of all those kids running the restaurant.
Won’t come back!
Had mother’s day brunch, services was very good and food was great as usual.
Not what it use to be. Food quality is more like strip mall sushi.
The service was good but food portions were small but pricey. The acoustics were bad- it was difficult to hear one another.
Good food, nice atmosphere, great cocktails. The bartender is super!!
Although most of the food was good, it was way overpriced for portion sizes. Salad with avacado dressing, miso cod, and sashimi was tasty, but fried chicken bites was mostly batter. If you have money to burn and you want to impress a date, this is a good spot to do it. If you want good sushi/sashimi and don’t want to spend your whole paycheck, go elsewhere. This is def a $$$ not $$ as advertised on OT. Also, watch the bill - we were charged twice for an order and server took the extra charge off the bill, but with no apology. Service was sketchy also.
Wonderful food and great value! Service was good. People were nice but it was extremely slow. We even had to bus our own table at one point bc the plates kept stacking up. Manager gave us a round of champagne as an apology. Would definitely go back, but they need to work on service.
Great food and service.
The food quality was poor. Especially bc they up charged $20 for Easter indicat
I come here twice or even 3 times a month. Love it sushi grade is beyond expectations.
Tasting menu delicious and huge
Excellent meal limited selections
We sat outside and it was nice. Food quality was excellent!
Pricy for Las Olas Clientele very small portions. We ordered the lamb chops the flavor was different and delicious but did not include any side dish same with skirt stake. Celebrating a special occasion so we were contemplating ordering the Wagu beef at $100. The ounces were not listed (all other beef cuts did) so we asked
at first the waiter stated he thought it was between 6 and 8 oz. so we placed the order. a couple minutes later he returned to inform us he checked with the chef and it was now 4oz. At $25 an oz. we canceled the order.
I would recommend the bar area for happy hour!
I went for dinner on a weekend. You’ll be okay ordering anything off the cold menu. If you order the steak, it will come out cold as it takes a little while to receive it. It gets really loud by the bar, so essentially you have a place that’s sort of bar-ish on one side and dining on the other. Depending on your style, you can have that Fort Lauderdale bar scene feeling if you’re up for it and enjoy a decent meal afterwards. But don’t expect a 5 star experience even though the service was good depending on which staff member approached you. 4 stars for sure as its definitely one of the better (but not the best) of places in Fort Lauderdale.
We had an excellent experience there with our server Jordan and the manager Jose. They were attentive to our likes, actively engaged with us on questions, and provide a worthwhile and memorable time.
The food was on point. The kampachi and grilled flank steak with chimichurri were excellent.
Lastly, thanks to Jordan’s recommendation, we really enjoyed the Japanese Fried Chicken.
If there was something to consider to go back to the restaurant, the waiter kill it, it was the worst experience ever, she forgot the tea I ordered, never returned to the table to pick up dirty dishes, never look after our table to see if we wanted something else, we have to be calling a passerby waiter to ask for things. Finally, when we were desperate to leave, and ask for the check, she decided to clean up the table and had us waiting forever to bring it. The food was ok, nothing that I will crave to go for. Not giving the place a second chance.
Amazing. The food, drinks, and service we outstanding. We did the tasting and had more then enough food and everything was perfect!
The food as always was great, good service, and nice ambiance.
Amazing food and staff. Only drawback was a very loud table next to us.
Expensive, but very good. Fun place to be and the Black Cod was to die for. Will come back.
The prices don't seem high at first, but the portions are tiny and very a la carte. Also the restaurant is LOUD. All hard surfaces, crowded with dinners, and loud music playing to boot. So, while the food is very good, the value and experience drag down my rating.
