    The food and area was a really good set up. Unfortunately the service was extremely poor. There was many time where dirty plates didn’t get taken away, the server barley checked on us and we ended up eating our next course with the dirty plates from the prior course still on the table with very little space.

    What an amazing experience! Tuesday is truly $5 taco and margarita day. The taco bar is outstanding with many meat choices and amazing toppings. All fresh and tasty. And you can have repeats. Enjoyed the atmosphere and beach view. A real find that we'll be come back to.

    I love this place normally but the brunch is a rip off. $40-$50 is just not worth it for breakfast foods. Taste is good but not worth the money for brunch.

    Great Sunday brunch. Outstanding service, tremendous food with plenty of variety, and we chose the open/unlimited bar option. Giant Mimosa's, tasty Bloody Mary's, and of course Margarita's!!! They also had a Mariachi band walking around providing festive music!!!

    We went here and had requested a high top on the reservation. When we got there there were none available. They sat us at a table. It started to rain and we asked to be moved. They told us that we could eat at the bar. I told them we didn’t want to and asked to sit at one of the 8 other open tables. We were told they had reservations for all the other tables and they couldn’t sit us there. I am not sure why if I had a reservation and I was there why I couldn’t sit there. After arguing with them, they finally put us at a table. The tables all remained empty through our entire meal and when we walked back by 30 minutes later, they were all empty. Absolutely horrible service!

    This was our second time at Lona and it truly never disappoints! My best friend and I were in Fort Lauderdale for a quick spontaneous weekend, and we knew that Lona was going to be our dinner choice because of how phenomenal it was last time earlier in the year. Food is delicious, views are beautiful, especially around sunset, and the total aesthetic is just “feel good!” Special shout out to our sever Flo who didn’t miss a beat and went above and beyond. Definitely check this place out if you need somewhere to go while in town.

    We had a fabulous meal! We were seating right away and had a perfect table over looking the water. The food was amazing. Or favorite was the lump crab guacamole. We both had the avocado spicy margarita, it was the only disappointment of the night, but not terrible. We will defiantly be going back!
