Italian
La Fontana Steakhouse will comfort and intrigue your senses, with delicious Italian cuisine with a twist.
Our gastronomic proposal is inspired by classic Italian-American elements influenced by the comfort food movement, mainly focusing on the evolution of traditional Italian cuisine.

You will be pleasantly surprised by dishes with unique presentations, compositions, and flavors; traditional Italian dishes like Lasagna, Cartoccio, and Milanese are reinvented and become the main feature at the table, creating unforgettable moments for diners. We offer Lunch Specials ranging from 9.99 to 15.99 and exquisite selections of Wine and Cocktails during our Happy Hour.

Our greatest draw is our Dry-Aged Meat, which goes through an aging process that concentrates the taste and makes the meat more tender.

Come and enjoy with the whole family dishes with big portions, exclusive flavors, incredible presentations and a one-of-a-king dining experience.

The ambiance was good, music as well. Food pretty good until we got the the Tomahawk Steak it was way too much fat hardy any meat,!very disappointing. When it came to the tip they tried 25% deal . I don’t know if they see me again.

Amazing dinner. We had the filet mignon. Truffle fries and mash potatoes were great. Wine selection a little limited on whites. Tried the lychee martinis- they were great also.

Food and service was wonderful. Got together with friends from Broward. A great location to meet halfway. Noise level was minimal so we could have a normal conversation without yelling. Saxophone player was perfect background music. We will be back.

I was in the shopping center and saw this restaurant. I decided to give it a try and I'm happy we did. Having said that PLEASE be aware of where you are seated and if you are not happy asked to be moved. We had a reservation for a Saturday night at 8 pm. We arrived at 7:40 but the hostess said she would seat us. There were about 14 people in the restaurant so there was plenty of seating. As we were walking I explained that it was our first time there, she welcomed us and sat us. Unfortunately with all the seating available, she sat us near the bussers station. I asked to be moved and was immediately accommodated. We ordered wine and apps. The wine was brought out by what I expect was their sommelier and the apps followed immediately. Dinner and dessert were ordered and also came out in good timing. Our glasses were never empty and Carlos our waiter checked in on us consistently. Funny thing is that we were there for almost 2 hours and the original table was never occupied ....

All in all, we were very happy with the food, the decor is very warm and we loved it. What made our night was the attention Carlos gave us. We will be sure to visit again, maybe this time sitting at the bar where they have full service. La Fontana, welcome to the neighborhood.

Everything was excellent, except that without asking a 25% gratuity was added to our check. We were only my wife and me. I understand when it’s more than 6 guests. We found it offensive. This was our second visit and it will be our last 👎👎👎👎

I ordered a fillet mignon medium rare & it came back well. I asked for a new one and the waiter apologized & insisted he put medium rare. I wasn’t upset. I understand things happen. The waiter comes back & whispers in his broken English that there were no more filet mignon (really? In a steakhouse, LOL) if I could order something else. I ordered the skirt steak. (AMAZING skirt steak I may add). At this point my boyfriend has already finished his meal & he ended up eating alone. Then my food comes out & the manager gives me the food & he wasn’t even apologetic. Put the steak on my table, said sorry for the wait and left. Didn’t offer to comp anything. When it was evident that my boyfriend finished eating & I hadn’t even stared. Then the waiter comes to our table and whispers to us that he’s sorry about what happened that he spoke to his manager and they will be comping my steak and he is giving us a gift card for a free bottle of wine. If we could pls give me 5 stars on Facebook & yelp. At this point. I said to my boyfriend. WOW this restaurant is amazing. I’m very pleased regardless of the mess up. So the waiter leaves the gift card on the table and I continue eating while my boyfriend is watching me finish eating alone. So then we ask for the bill & this is where it gets good. My steak was not comped, I noticed that & I make eye contact with my waiter who was attending another table & he makes eye contact with me & I keep staring at him and he looks like a scared dog at this point and starts avoiding making eye contact with me. I talk it out with my boyfriend, we were on the fence if we should saying something or not and he calls the waiter over & my boyfriend gives him the check and as the waiter is walking away my boyfriend at that moment decided to mention to the waiter “hey didn’t you mention that the steak was going to be comped” the waiter whispers again “oh I spoke with the manager and we can’t comp the steak” y couldn’t the waiter say that to begin with.

Our first visit to this restauran. We are definitely coming back. The service was great. The food presentation was very appealing. We ordered a mixed appetizer with ham, cheese and olives. Great to share. For main dish we tried both ravioli. Pear and short ribs both exquisite. My husband ordered the skirt steak and our friend ordered the filet mignon. They were both delighted. French fries were also great. Sad that we did not tried dessert an excuse to come back. Great job. Keep the good work.

Great ambiance with enjoyable soft background music. Good food; specially the Family Milanese and the Seafood Fettuccine. The Cartoccios also good.... However, Very expensive drinks lessen the Value. Service is friendly but lacking follow up on water pouring. Forcing an 18% “Room Fee” on a table of 6 that was willing to give more is bad taste... They cut us off once we paid our $$325 check; not pouring water even though had several empty tables. Floor Manager was aloof.... However, they have been open only a few weeks... Let’s see if they improved next time ... Very mixed feelings.
