Service and food were outstanding. We had Krystal as our server and she was amazing. For someone who is in the hospitality business I have a higher standard of service that I expect. Krystal exceeded my expectations. Her level of hospitality is amazing. Upbeat, friendly and accommodating. She was always around when we needed anything and made our experience. Kudos to the chefs as well. The food was great. Thank you! Wish we lived closer.

I loved everything about this restaurant. They were able to accommodate our party of 10 people. We were all very comfortable. Food was delicious, and were drinks. Some of us tried the Mexican mojito and we really liked it. Our server, Richard, was super nice. We liked the decoration, the music... everything! I highly recommend this restaurant.

I love Mexican food, so I can be a harsh critic. Lona Cocina delivers on taste, value and vibe. If you are looking for a more quiet intimate dinner, inside offers that. If you wanna rock to the tune of the DJ with some drinks and good food, the balcony offers that with an ocean view.

Great food, service, ambience. The only minus is the non-stop music. We were seated in the far corner of the restaurant completely opposite to the music and were still unable to hear our conversations. If not for this, I would have given it a 5. Easy fix- Turn it down!

The service was horrible. We waited over 35 minutes for our waitress to check in on us. The service was so bad that we had to go to the host desk to ask for our check. When the check arrived, it was incorrect. Def. will not be going back to this restuarant.

Sunday brunch with unlimited margaritas - worst drinks ever. Very acidic and little tequila- ver cheap gold tequila. Not much variety at the buffet.

We decided to celebrate my sisters birthday and this experience was unforgettable! Such unique fusion Mexican restaurant! The environment is amazingly furnished and the food is out of this world!! Everything we ordered made us hungry for more! We indulged in the lobster quesadillas, skirt steak, Mahi-mahi tacos, lamb Floutas and the grouper was to die for! We also loved the Don Julio CBD infused Old Fashion! I love Old Fashions and this one by far was the very BEST!

Personal thank you to Rodrigo and David who provided top notch service that made us feel like royalty! This place is a MUSTTTTT when visiting Fort Lauderdale!

You would have to be deaf to stand the music level. An assault on the ears!

Very generous in fact huge portions fajitas-we left half each- but tasteless guacamole and weird garnishes like whole cooked peppers and onions. Not your traditional fajita for sure.

Extremely poor service. Food was all overcooked. Drinks were tough to consume, as refreshing as really old lime juice can be but really poor choice for a margarita.

This was a disappointing experience. We were so excited to eat here based upon many things we had read. We had reservations and that was a life saver since when we arrived people were being turned away who didn’t have reservations because they were completely booked. We were seated relatively promptly but there was a good bit of confusion and disorganization at the hostess area. People were being helped before us even though we had arrived first and were standing at the front. Once seated it took more than 15 minutes for our waitress to come and take a drink order. Same for ordering food. The service is painfully slow. Every time we asked for something or wanted to order another cocktail we had to ask someone to find our waitress. The food fortunately was VERY good! The pork carnitas were some of the best we have had. Since we were on vacation and we are relatively laid back we didn’t make a big thing about the service, but it certainly would never be a place we would return regardless of the food. The restaurant is insanely noisy and staff are constantly rushing back and forth and bumping into each other. It is very disorganized. If you’re looking for good food and don’t care about service then it certainly would be a great option for Mexican food. Just make sure you have a reservation and have plenty of time to spare.
