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.

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!

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.

Thank you!

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.

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.

Food and service excellent. The acoustics however are very problematic. When the bar area is busy it's actually impossible to have a conversation - you just can't hear one another. It's such a shame given all else was good (although drinks are overpriced) but if you want to go there for a date, or a business meeting or anything where conversation is required don't go when it's busy.

The only thing I would add is when serving the delicious skirt steak, on the side is a whole roasted garlic, it would be even better if served with a crusty slice of baguette or two. The garlic spread on that would make the dish even better!

Celebrated daughters bday - wonderful ambiance, cocktails, food, and service was spot on! Our waiter was very attentive, which can be a rare thing for South Florida! We will be back!
Only knock I might have is that there is a structural pillar that our table sat against that really obstructed veiw of restaurant, robbing of some ambiance, but not a deal killer as food, service, and our company/table made it unforgettable!

My husband and I had a friend visiting from out of state that we haven’t seen in almost two years so, naturally, we wanted to make it a special night. Gastrotheque did not disappoint! From appetizer to dessert the food was delicious and the presentation was appealing. Our waiter was super charismatic and knew the menu and drinks inside out. I’m not much of a drinker, but even I could tell that the drinks were really well made and perfectly balanced. The vibe inside the restaurant is also very cool. It’s a small place so it can get a bit loud, but we were still able to have a conversation. Will definitely go back.

This was our first visit and it was enjoyable. Our reservation was honored however we only had 3 people in our party and they sat us at a large 5-top. When we asked to be moved to a booth, we were told that the booths were on a "reservation basis only" - which clearly we had. Our server was darling and very attentive. The menu is somewhat limited but food is good. Overall it was an enjoyable evening.
