Sticky Pecan Bun
Food was good, but not memorable. Needed more seasoning. Nicely presented. Server was pleasant. Was expecting more of a “foodie” experience but overall, will probably return
Food and service (our server Frank) were both very good HOWEVER, be prepared for a club atmosphere and club drink prices! If you are looking for a good restaurant to enjoy a night out and be able to enjoy conversation this is NOT the place. We ordered drinks, appetizers, main dishes and desserts....all were very good and then came the check and we were upcharged for BOTH "on the rocks" and "neat" from the bar. Not really sure how a restaurant has the audacity to charge for both claiming that both ways gets an extra 1/2 ounce pour - even after charging $29 for a pour of Rye. For a policy like this, either include it in your already exorbitant drink prices or have the server tell patrons of the extra charge - do not nickel and dime and then use some bogus excuse for it. Left a really bad taste in our mouths.....
Food was AMAZING. And the Saturday night vibes with the female dj was awesome. We will be back !
Our “go to” place when we are in town. Excellent - service varies. This last visit the food was no very hot and Octopus appetizer was not the quality as in the past. Great vibe and everyone is very friendly.
Amazing octopus, skirt steak like you have never tasted before- and get the French fries rather than the salad, salted just right, and prawns - more like lobster tail. Yes, I will be back.
Another outstanding meal at Gastroteque last night. If you want superb food and cocktails, you must try it!
Manuela and the entire staff were fantastic! The food was fabulous, as well. Unpretentious vibe, outgoing team, and did I mention the food was excellent?
Wonderful visit Found it online. First time visit. Will be back!!
Great interesting dishes well prepared . Awesome Bolognese and really enjoyed the prawns. First time here and looking forward to returning !
There were only a few people in the restaurant at 6:15 on a Tuesday. We had lovely service and delicious food
My husband reserved a table to celebrate our birthdays based on OpenTable reviews. Only hiccup of the night was being offered a table in the corner that we would have to exit shortly after beginning our meal; we obviously chose to wait at the bar which was a great idea. Everyone was amazing, especially our bartender and waitress, and the food was the best we’ve had in South Florida. I look forward to dining at Gastrotheque again soon and hopefully becoming a regular. The chef and owner are definitely one of the best duos in town!
Ravioli stuffed with goat cheese was excellent
Downright fantastic. Frank our server was great. The food was delicious would highly recommend
Best truffle fries in the city.
Best pork belly in the city.
Best cocktail in the city (the Gastro 22).
Go to discover more "bests" they have to offer.
This was my second time dining at Gastrotheque. They have interesting food choices but the amount of food provided is not justified by th e price.
Great atmosphere and food. Staff is excellent and always accommodating. It is a hidden gem in the city.
Great Food, Great Drinks, and Great Service!!!!
First time visit. What a lovely surprise. Great food and drinks. Relatively reasonably priced. Manuela was a great server. No rush. Easy going. WIll be going back soon.
From start to finish this meal was outstanding. I cannot say enough how great the food was. Octopus and hamachi to start. Red snapper and seafood pasta for entree and expresso martini and expresso creme brûlée for dessert.
Gastro 22 and ain’t she a peach cocktails were amazing.
Josh our host was so friendly and personable and Manuela our server was incredible. Please go and support this place. It is one of the best in Fort Lauderdale.
We had a great meal and we loved the fun upbeat vibe. Nice wine, beer and cocktail selection. Will be back!!!
Excellent food and ambiance. The service could not be better. Nice house music that now plays till 2am and good group of people there to enjoy a nice relaxing fun evening just off Las olas.
I’m a big fine dining restaurant foodie & travel often. Found myself in Fort Lauderdale for work & dined in Gastrotheque & I found my go-to for Fort Lauderdale. Everything from my delicious craft cocktail (the Gastro) to all of my food (Hamachi & Octopus apps then my Cauliflower entree) were just so freaking delicious. I also appreciated Frank, my server’s service. He took the time to connect & read the table with the proper pacing - not overbearing or rushing us, but also helping us along when conversation was so immersive.
He was part of our great experience. Highly, highly recommend!
Went to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful time. Manuela T. Is amazing! She Is super sweet and knows the menu like the back of her hand. She also gives the best recommendations on what to order depending on what you’re in the mood to eat or drink. Thank you for making my birthday dinner special.
Frank is the best waiter in Fort Lauderdale
The food and drinks were delicious.
Always have great service and staff is really friendly. The craft cocktails are amazing, and if you give Bartender an idea of what alcohol and flavors you like, they will make a Custom Drink that is amazing
Service, we had Christine, was amazing super knowledgeable and checked up on us to make sure everything was good. Portion sizes were great, food was delicious and came out quickly. Fantastic wine list!
Excellent atmosphere excellent service excellent food. One of the best filet mignon’s I’ve ever had. The wine list is remarkable, be sure to ask about the monthly wine tastings.
Nice atmosphere, excellent customer service. The appetizers were my favorite part of the meal. There were a lot of items with truffle as a highlight, so be sure to ask in case you do not want it.
One of the best meals I’ve had in Fort Lauderdale in a long time! The service was wonderful as well, extremely friendly and helpful with wine/menu selections
This is our third time at Gastrotheque. The whole team at this restaurant could not be friendlier or more professional. From the warm welcoming host to the server, food runner, bartender and everyone else were top class and made us feel special from the minute we walked in, to right when we left. The decoration and lighting fixtures are beautiful. Pleasant music playing at the right volume. You can tell that everything is planned to the smallest of details and guests satisfaction is very important to this group. The lamb medallions, risotto and octopus were amazing and perfectly prepared. The deserts to die for.
We can’t wait to come back.
We had a great meal, and a fantastic waiter, Michael. The three of us shared two appetizers: watermelon salad and burrata with tomatoes. Both were excellent. Entrees consisted of the veal special, short rib risotto and the chicken. There was plenty to eat and it was delicious. Michael let us relax between courses and enjoy a couple bottles of wine. We'll definitely be back!
Service outstanding, from welcome to good-bye. All items were well executed, well planted and uniquely flavored. The actual saffron pistols that topped the ceviche were a great visual and flavorful surprise.
We also shared the Yuki-infused cubes of watermelon, the beef short rib risotto and lamb medallions.
We chose the almond joy desert, a ganache coved oblong filled with toasted coconut and other delights.
Minor negatives: no bread available (gratis or to buy); no table covering, either cloth or paper to cover the rustic wood; lastly, booths we comfortable for any with a 32” waist or under—a bit tight for those of us who are older and more rotund.
First visit back to this space since the ownership change. It was a wonderful experience. Every single bite of food was outstanding. The Octopus preparation was worth the visit. Everything was excellent. I don’t write reviews, but this Chef and kitchen is too good not too share.
We celebrated my fiancé’s grandmas birthday. The food was out of this world. Nice size portions and everything was paired beautifully as well as presented nicely. Great place for special occasion.
Wonderful food and ambiance!!
Absolutely the best food in Broward County. The chef and owners are so personable and remember your name and favorite items.
Our server, Tyler, and the Restaurant Manager did an excellent job of greeting us and staying on top of our experience. We even received a complimentary limoncello for celebrating our anniversary. The entire restaurant full of patrons were all maskless as we entered and the option of sitting outside in an alley did not appeal to us. The crowd is on average older (50s +) but vibrant. A nice bar as you enter was full of guests chatting away and enjoying their drinks and foods.
Our first order of the evening were two house cocktails which were a great start. My wife enjoyed a gin and I had one of the bourbon drinks. We ordered a snapper ceviche dish which was fresh and excellent tasting as was the house regular of charred octopus complemented by a glass of Hobbs Chardonnay. For dinner we went to one of the house home runs - skirt steak with chimichurri which was one of the best. Understandable considering the Argentinian / Italian background of the chef. We also enjoyed the truffle mushroom risotto. Both meals were more than fulfilling for us and we took leftovers home. Word is the dessert pecan sticky bun is a must have but we were too full to venture there so I treated myself to a 20-year port as we wound down a great date night. Enjoy!
Pre movie dinner. Loved to be snake to make a reservation. Seated immediately and server was prompt and attentive. She was well versed on the drink and food menu. All good excellent. Loved the Mac n cheese and risotto ! Drinks were well mixed and well priced for happy hour! Will return. Only four stars for server as she forgot to put in an extra order of fries.
We have been here a few times and this restaurant hasn't disappointed yet. We enjoyed all of the recommendations that were given to us and the portions are a great size. The drinks here are great and the bar area is a good vibe as well. The pecan sticky bun is amazing!! FYI though it takes about 20-25 mins to come out, so order it ahead of time. Great music selection and just a low key place. You won't be disappointed eating here.
