Went for Sunday brunch, beautiful setup on the beach. The buffet was not well stocked nor replenished frequently. The servers were difficult to locate and the ‘bottomless’ option only yielded 1 refill since the servers were only attentive to certain tables. Requests for forks or a water refill went unanswered. The check even took over 20 minutes to arrive after requested. The manager did right by discounting our meal (I eventually got up and asked for the check from him) so I will give a 3 overall based on quality of the food - it was good!! There is potential to improve, maybe they were short-staffed?

It was a wonderful experience. My friend and I have been to the one in Ft. Lauderdale but love the feel of how open and airy the one is in Hallandale.

Arrived a bit late, but didn’t matter table wasn’t ready. The greeter told us the table would be ready in a bit to please go to the bar. Waited a while for the drinks to be served. The hostess came over I told us the table was ready. From there the evening was prefect.

We were celebrating a birthday which I noted on the reservation when I made it as well as told our waiter about that.
Any restaurant, even much more moderately priced one, would offer a birthday dessert on the house - but not ETARU.. that sort of soured the experience which was excellent till that point

The happy hours is very good with drinks at $6 and bites at $5. We tried the pork steamed dim sum and the Japanese fried chicken, both were excellent. We miss the skewers at happy hour

Two of us went for the sunny.org restaurant month.
The choices were extensive. Food was exotic but delicious.
Customers were dress rather casual; it is next to the beach, on a second floor in a condominium.

Not as good as usual. Appetizers were great especially the ribs. Oysters were fresh as well as the sushi . But the service was slow and not as friendly as usual. We ordered our entrées and it took one hour to receive them and my friend had to take it to go. And what happened To the DJ

We went to Etaru with great expextations based on the wonderful reviews from the social media to find a very boring ambiance for a Saturday night. The restaurant inside was totally empty so we decided to sit outside but the heat and humidity totally ruined the experience. No music or good vibes at all. The food was average and the price was fair. Our waiter did everything above and beyond but it was not enough to wish us to return.

I have always enjoyed dining there for brunch. It was the first experience where the service was lacking. Bottom less wine champagne. Paid extra for champagne and all through I had to almost beg to get a glass as the server was no where to be found. Meanwhile the table next to me was getting refill while half empty. Thumbs down for my last visit.

This was our first visit to Etaru in Hallandale. We did not realize that it was a Sunday brunch buffet. We had a short wait and was seated outside. The quality of the food, especially the sushi/sashimi and seafood was amazing. All of the food was excellent. We were then blown away by the dessert platter which came with the brunch. We all loved it. The drinks included with the brunch were also great. Will return!
