A coat of paint and brighter ambiance & better stocked bar definitely makes this a new restaurant (vs the previous tenant, long-time staple Canyon). Gone are the curtains and dim, intimate feel - hello to loud, loud and more loud guests.

The bar and bartenders were great and very friendly. Once seated (we waited just a few minutes for the reservation), we were greeted by our very friendly and enthusiastic waiter. It was tough to har him due to the extremely loud other guests who were screaming at each other - no masks, since they were all seated at their own tables. I could barely hear my fellow diner and found myself having to just give up and skip any conversation we were hoping to have. What's worse than having screaming kids at a restaurant? Slightly drunk over-the-top adults who have been cooped up and feel they have the right to let loose and scream their stories at each other.

As for the food, the skirt steak looked amazing, and was (my fellow diner chose that and shared a bite). I chose the pork chop on recommendation from our waiter -- it was lack luster and tough. I envied those skirt steak & fries! Some of the other dishes that came out of the kitchen looked great and since the menu has some great choices, we will give it another try -- but not on a weekend and we may opt to sit outside -- only due to potential COVID spreading risk. Too tight & too loud. If I wanted that type of yelling atmosphere, I would have gone to Martorano's.

What a pleasant surprise- Gastrotheque is a must. From the custom cocktails to the end- everything continued to delight. The watermelon salad visually is pure art and it’s flavors take you through so many layers you can’t help but want even more. The truffle fries the best we have ever had anywhere. The octopus was scrumptious. Yellowtail appetizer with mango and tomatoes was incredible. The entrees did not disappoint either. One of our new favorite places for sure. Only thing missing was the beer selection- very minimal choices, and all bottles no draught. Overall a great dining experience. Daniel our waiter was great as well!

This is a welcome place to Fort Lauderdale for drinks, atmosphere and vibes. The place is lively, the drink menu is very creative and service is very friendly. Plating of dishes is magnificent though I wish I could say the same about the food which was good (especially the salads) but not terrific for the price. Red Snapper was good but the Crab cake was mediocre at best and did not justify a $26 price tag. They pour the best Manhattan in town and for that alone we will be back.

Service was excellent. Wish I could say the same about food. Octopus was rubbery and not charred. Pork entrée was room temperature when served and very salty. Side item was supposed to be potato with truffles but the item had no flavor and felt like I was chewing watery cardboard. Short rib risotto entrée was bland and risotto texture resembled crunchy rice and was obviously not prepared correctly and/or under cooked. Snapper entrée was decent. We did no order dessert.

Very friendly and competent wait staff. Amazing, inventive food! We were sad to see Canyon move, but couldn't ask for a better restaurant to take over that space. We will be returning again and again!

Newly opened, this place is worth the visit. Gastrotheque has big shoes to fill having taken over Canyon's location on Sunrise and US1. Based on our experience on Saturday night, they are well on their way to making a name for themselves and instead of mourning the loss of Canyon we will be celebrating the gain. Although all of the food we tried was delicious, our favorites included the Truffle Fries, the Smoked Duroc Pork Belly, the Charred Spanish Octopus, the (monster) Sticky Bun, and to drink, the Gastro 22. We have added Gastrotheque to our list of favorites in the city, give it a try, you may as well.

order the pear salad but only one even if there is two of you. It is Gigantic. The Mozzarella Burrata Salad was outstanding also. tasty Move on to the Berkshire Pork Chop which was very tasty and the Filet was delicious. Marvin, our server, was a delight too. Ask for him and you won't regret it.

From the moment we walked in everyone was so accommodating and Gary and Kim made us feel welcomed and were such amazing hosts! And let me tell you, everything was DELICIOUS!!! And I mean everything! What was on my plate, my parents plate, sisters plate lol!! I can’t wait to go back to try more entrees. And OMG that sticky bunnnnnn, I’m still thinking about it :). If it’s not already, Gastrotheque will be the next Hot Spot in Lauderdale. Thanks Micheal our amazing waiter for the great dining experience. We all are looking forward to coming back soon!!

Had a fantastic time at this new Fort Lauderdale restaurant. The staff is great, the food is delicious, and the restaurant is immaculate - adhering to all safety protocols. The beverage team has also created an amazing wine list that has something for everyone. Order your favorite craft cocktail or challenge the talented bar staff to create something just for you. A+++++++

Food was mediocre. Service was excellent. This place is too small to allow all tables to be occupied. Bartenders frequently had masks off as did most patrons sitting at the bar.

Awesome service from Marvin! We didn’t know that it was their first night. Food was very interesting and didn’t disappoint. Best appetizer was Hamachi and the pork belly a must try. We only ordered one entree (Pork Chop) that was very juicy and cooked to a perfect medium. We’ll be definitely coming back to try it again.
