Superb on all levels. Dining in front of the sea. Great wine selection. Perfect hot sake, lots of amazing dishes beautifully presented. Cool music professionally mixed complemented the location. 10 out of 10 on all levels. My 4th visit and it keeps getting better and better.
Wonderful food, service, ambiance
Great great great
The place has incredible unobstructed ocean views. Nice breeze and ambience. The food is really good but the portions are small. The prices a bit high for a main entree not having a side dish.
More variety in the menu would be nice.
Overall really good and will go again..
Outstanding place! Amazing food, great happy hour, beautiful views, outstanding service, good value.
ETARU is one of a kind. From the decor to the food, especially the service. The ocean view is breathtaking. There is space for big groups or a romantic dinner. Whatever the occasion, you are bound to feel like the only ones at the restaurant. The food is unique and fantastic. There is a great variety of dishes. The staff goes above and beyond for their customers. Ronnie is amazing! I wasn’t expecting to find one of the best dining experiences I have ever had when I found this place. Glad that I did!
Always a wonderful experience!
Service was not what was expected. Waited 25 minutes for a cocktail and 50 minutes for food . Manager was apologetic & offered to come our food which we refused because the food was delicious, he sent us a wonderful dessert platter but I don’t think i will go back
Etaru is a great restaurant. The atmosphere, food and service are amazing. I can’t wait to go back! I’m lucky to live just a short walk away.
Overall good and service was amazing!
Good but a little expensive
I would like to start by saying that my 3 stars are very generous. I'm not sure if last night was unusually busy, but for a dinner for 2, not the 5 course experience, just a la cartorderede with all items ordered at once, 2+ hrs to have dinner is way too much, but this is not all... It all started with having made a dinner reservation, it was my birthday. I arrived on time, only to realize that I had to wait to be seated, it took about 20 mins, something new to me about reservations. But the biggest downfall was that the food took so long, I mean no less than 30 mins for the first 2 items to arrive, about the same for other 2, our side dishes, only 1 made it to the table, once we were finishing with the protein, the other wasn't ready at that point (please note that we are talking about broccolini and rice -not something that required complex elaboration), everything that was supposed to come hot, came to the table lukewarm. I am giving the 3 stars for two reasons: 1. I have been at Etaru Ft Lauderdale, and the experience was superb, and I am trying to give Etaru Hallendale the benefit of the doubt; 2. And more important, the great customer service provided by our 2nd waiter who was just out of training last night, and graciously took over, ensuring that things would run smoother from his involvement and on. I hope Etaru Hallendale management reads this, and that they ensure that moving forward their customers would not have to go through this type of experience. The expectations are really high for the type of restaurant you are, not only related to the prices of your food, but because of your sister locations. You definitely can do better.
Very bad service! We wait every dish fot 40 minutes!
Always a top pick, excellent service, lots of options at the brunch buffet, cool DJ/sound, great cocktails and the view.... well, its the ocean !
They were having a wedding and the entire outdoor seating area was reserved for the event. When I called their reservations lady said she had me listed for outdoors and never mentioned the wedding.
I would have gone there on another night if I had known, shame on them!!!
Very unimpressed! Very expensive.
Several items out of stock
Llegamos y esperamos mucho ; nos asignaron una mesa común y esperamos 20 min sin que nadie nos atienda por lo que nos levantamos sin comer y fuimos a otro sitio
Our second time there in 4 nights as we were visiting from FL west coast and it was very close to the condo we were staying. The food is nothing short of amazing! We had some service timing issues and after a word with the manager things picked up. The service recovery included a dessert for our group which was off the charts delicious and was simply magazine picture quality in presentation. We’ve already told a couple of people about this restaurant and will definitely be on our list of restaurants to visit the next time we’re in Hallandale FL.
This dinner was amazing! View of the moon, great ambiance. The server was fantastic, very attentive. I forgot her name but she was European I’m pretty sure. Sushi was SO fresh. After dinner we had cigars that they had on the menu on their smoking cigar terrace. Everything was perfect. Thank you for making our trip to Miami memorable !!
Arrived for our reservation and they only had inside tables. The manager went out of his way to get us a table overlooking the water outside, and we only had to wait at the bar for about 10 mins. Excellant service and food.
the service was not very friendly and the menu was a little strange. The food was not as good as I expected and it was expensive. the location on the water is very nice. parking is expensive.
I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. Get the tasting menu, you will not regret it. So delicious. The beach view was beautiful. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Japanese/sushi.
Food and Table service were excellent. We arrive early and the Hostess was not able to accommodate us even though their were a number of tables open were I requested. We return at our reservation time and we were still seated in an area tuck away on the side of the building, when there were still a number of tables closer to the water open.
Our waitress was very friendly but no one ever cleared the small two top table before bringing next courses and even after bringing them.
Ridiculously expensive for very small portion sizes and avg taste. The only delicious piece was the salmon sashimi cut. Despite reserving table outside, we were first given a table inside by kitchen entrance, then inside next to dirty dishes station. $13 parking w validation? Nice ambience, way over priced. Not going back.
From the time that we arrived until the time that we left the service was slow, the hostess was rude, the food was cold, the noise level was ridiculously high, and the prices were out rages. I will never go back again.
Got my food later than everyone else. Service was poor and slow. Food and drinks are good.
Happy hour prices were amazing - good value!
Tasting menu was exceptional. Service and ambiance were great.
Delicious, wonderful service and hospitality.
Great food great service!
Beautiful place amazing food and sunsets.
Well not sure what happened, but the quality of this place as gone way down! The service was terrible. My friend dropped a big glob of raw salmon on the table while eating his appetizer, and it remained there until the end of the meal (when we covered it with a napkin). The broccoli had way to much salt, the corn lime butter dish was without flavor (just a corn on the cob broken into 4 pieces and charred).The sushi was nothing special. Spicy tuna roll had no spice. We had been here about 8 months ago and it was very different. Service was impeccable. They had a French manager at the time and he kept it classy! Not sure what happened, but we won't be back. :-( Unless you are going for drinks and ambiance, do some research and find an alternative. Just not worth it!
Best steak ever at a Japanese restaurant
Not a lot of choices in the menu. Sushi could be better. Excellent deserts.
Exceptional food. Only downside was it was loud. There must have been a large group on the other side of the restaurant.
Great food, great value, professional staff, well done plus a view of the ocean like this is rare.
Great service makes the difference. Our server made attended to everything and made my friend’s birthday special. Some dishes ran out and she quickly secured a fresh dish for us. Wine glasses were never empty.
This brunch is a really good value: welcome drink, unlimited wine and dessert. The buffet offers many of their staples but unlimited. Even eating a normal portion, I felt like I got my money’s worth. The only negative was the sushi, which was just average.
The brunch buffet met and exceeded all expectations! The stunning beach view, friendly staff, delicious variety of food, and a magnificent dessert have put ETARU on my definite “return to” list.
