    First off let me say Gatsby's is a great place. The atmosphere is always good and our service was great. With that said the food last night was a let down. I had the pork chop which I have had before. In the past it was a very tender and juicy 16 ounce pork chop bone in center cut pork chop. Last night I was served 2 small pork chops which were dry and tasteless one had a bone and the other had a bone fragment. The chop were more like eating something from a grocery store meet case and not a restaurant. I didn't complain and only ate one of them with some of the side. My wife had The chicken française. Sadly she to was very disappointed. It was a thick chicken breast with literally no flavor. I don't know if they forgot to put the lemon in but all you could taste was the oil over the pasta and the chicken. She left half on the plate. Again the music was a lot of fun, the drinks were good and we love the Atmosphere. We will give them another chance, but if the food starts to decline as it did last night we won't be back. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend but not till I go back again to make sure they fix the food issues

    Food great but I wasn’t pleased with the comedians on Wednesday night . Using political views not very cool. Nothing about this country is funny anymore.

    A group of us came here during our vacation to Ft. Lauderdale and it completely blew our expectations out of the water. The food and cocktails were incredible, the staff was amazing and very attentive, and the live performances were out of this world. We arrived at 7:30pm and ending up staying all night because we could just not bring ourselves to leave this wonderful experience. Please go here. It is Ft. Lauderdale’s hidden gem!!

    Gatsby's joint is a great little cluby restaurant, with great food, ambiance and entertainment, most nights. We were there on Wednesday which is comedy night and honestly I didn't care for it it wasn't that funny lots of cursing and remarks about sex for shock value not really cleverly funny but that's okay we had a good time anyway. The food was delicious from the appetizers any entrees to the desert. My only problem with Gatsby's joint is they always seem understaffed the service are very nice and the bartenders are great but when they get busy there's just not enough help and it takes a long time to get a drink to get your order in and to get your food other than that I highly recommend Gatsby's joint

    The entertainment, particularly Anastasia was absolutely amazing. I wish I was from the area, it would be a joint I’d be sure to revisit. Stayed all night which seemed to be the norm. Be sure to make a reservation as the place will be filled up all night

    We booked based on the dinner show to hear jazz singer Anastasia Sky. However, the show was changed to a Burlesque show, which is not what we were expecting for. The venue should have made it known upon booking the type of show. I spoke with the manager and he apologized it was not communicated well on their website. Our group was not really interested in trying to have dinner while women stripped. I saw several other guest that brough family members feeling uncomfortable due to the event change for New Year's eve. However, our group made the best of it and chaulked it up to crazy 2020 year! Location is in older strip mall. Call before you book to verify the entertainment. It is a small place so the announcer is very loud and difficult to have a dinner converstation or communicate with the servers.

    The owner Steve paid attention to detail. Shows start around 8:00 pm not at 6:30 pm per website. Victor Vazquez the musician was fantastic. He started playing at 8:00 pm non stop until 10:50 pm. One song was better than the other.

    We love Gatsby's joint. The food is delicious and it has a great atmosphere. It's a little pricey, but worth it if the entertainment is good that night. We went on a Saturday night and we were a little disappointed with the entertainment. There was a man playing piano and singing and he was a bit average. One time we went when J Blue was there. She is not to be missed! Next time I will check on who the entertainment is before we go. The service is very good. It's definitely a feel good place!!!

    Wow what a fun experience me and my girlfriends had here! We went here for my friends 30th birthday and had the best night of our lives! We were singing and dancing all night long! What I was most surprised about was the food! Usually with these kinda places you do go for the entertainment & not the food. But, WOW we were all blown away with how delicious everything was. Well bang bang shrimp was amazinggg

    Very disappointed, I came to the restaurant solely for the brisket dinner and was advised they were out of brisket. I went with the grilled chicken sandwich instead. My husband went with the waygu steak and a side of mashed potatoes both our meals were inedible. The drinks were extremely overpriced and lacking. I would never go back to this restaurant. We left hungry and with a $90 check. We went across the street to Hot Leggz afterwards as we were both starving and had a better meal.

    The waitress was terrific, and the food generously portioned and well prepared chicken francaise. The wedge salad was split as requested. The room is pretty basic but the chairs very comfy and as there were only two other parties, social distancing wasn’t excellent
