First of all the service was outstanding, considering they are clearly short-staffed. The food was very good. I had the beer-battered snapper (slightly greasy), but very tasty. Some of the best french fries though!! My husband had the Eggs Benedict and he said he would order it again. I definitely recommend Hardy Park!

Cute neighborhood cafe. Great for a night for good conversation with one other couple. Wouldn’t recommend for parties of 6 or more because it’s a tiny space. It’s better for a more intimate group.

Always fantastic food and we love the current menu with the new owners. We stopped coming because previously we thought the menu was too sophisticated with small portions for what we typically want. Or we’d go there for the burger. This is the best in FTL.

Now it feels more accessible and I found many options to be happy about. We will put this back on our monthly restaurant list.

I only delete a few stars for ambiance due to the lighting. It’s unfortunate . A row of track lighting down the center of a rather austere small room. The lighting offers bright light shining directly in your eyes or cold and dark light. As an interior designer I can tell you this is such an easy fix.

The food was excellent. My beer battered snapper was super flaky and the batter was crispy and the fries were hot and crispy. My husband had the pork chop. It was a little dry but lots of flavor. The wedge salad was the best I’ve ever had. Dessert was delicious snd made from scratch. We got the sticky pudding and chocolate came. I thought the sticky pudding was better. I want to go back for brunch.

I thought very average - there were three os us and we round up all ordering the same meal for brunch - we ordered bagel, cream cheese and salmon - the bagel was small and not much salmon - you could get a better one at anyone of several other brunch places

Another new place for us to try. Small & quaint (5 4-tops, 2 2-tops & 2 6-tops inside as well as outside seating). Fantastic service. Creamy Mac & Cheese for an appetizer. Then for entrees, wild forest mushroom risotto & a pork chop with blue cheese onion jam served with potato pancake & sautéed kale & grilled asparagus. The Mac & cheese is absolutely heavenly. The cheese sauce was so silky smooth. All the food was outstanding as well as the service.

Hardy Park Bistro is a cute venue with gigantic portions! We had salads that were enormous. The snapper fish and chips were delicious. There was a screw up with the outdoor reservation...seemed to be an issue with several people who were reserving outside and then told that there was no availability.

Great place and their fried chicken looked great!

The chef knows exactly how to cook the meat and how he combines the different flavors is beyond the realm of comprehension.
It’s just a culinary delight!

This restaurant is a hidden gem. It is off the beaten path, but easy to find. Our recent experience here was unbelievable in a way , that most restaurants strive to achieve.
The food was prepared with care very step of the way, and the flavors were mouthwatering! We thought that the food was excellent, and the service by our waiter Ryan was superior !
If you love food, this is the place to go.

We were the only ones seated inside (would have preferred outside). We explained to the waiter that we were on a tight schedule, due to a show at the Broward Center, yet he rarely came to check on us. We also ordered 2 soups which we didn’t enjoy and returned practically full, yet none of them were removed from the bill. On a positive note, the crab cake and chocolate mousse were both the best I’ve ever had!!
