It should stated somewhere that Sunday is buffet only. We came all that way for a specific dish, and we both dislike buffets.
It took about 10-15 mis for the waitress to assist our table. She came after we requested food and drinks twice from the hostess
NOT SURE I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU OR NOT. VALET SERVICE WAS OVERPRICED; 7.50 UP TO 3 HRS AND THEN IT'S $18 OR $19! ARE YOU SERIOUS?
We had a great meal overall an excellent service. I didn’t like the chips and salsa, which is usually something I adore. Shrimp tacos and lobster quesadilla were good. The mango margarita was SO sweet I had to dilute it. Overall really enjoyed our time.
I had the lobster quesadilla. It was the best quesadilla I’ve ever had anywhere. Moreover, it’s a big portion and can be shared by two people.
This was my first time here and I loved it. The waitress was awesome, very attentive and at the same time gave my friend and I time to talk and catch-up. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was chic and inviting.
The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. Also the location is beautiful.
Such a great experience from top to bottom. The drinks were amazing as was the octopus tostado and the brisket quesadilla! I loved this place and the vibes and it’s right across from the beach! I enjoyed myself so much!
The food was no good at all, super greasy, like fast food restaurant
What a great meal
Yelp reviews were spot on
The lobster quesadilla was amazing and so were the ribs
Tried also the crab guacamole and it was really tasty too
Definitely will be back
Everything was awesome!!!
Excellent food and atmosphere!! We will definitely visit again when we return to Fort Lauderdale!!
The service was awesome! But the food was WAY too much money for the taste and type of food. $18 for 2 tacos…with no sides. Welcome to Fort Lauderdale!
Great atmosphere, delicious food and wonderful staff.
Great drinks, Great atmosphere but food and service was just ok. This is better for a casual setting or lunch.
Amazing food amazing stuff would highly recommend it
I can’t say enough about the food. I don’t generally care for Mexican food but the octopus tostada and lobster quesadilla were delicious. Also enjoyed a nice glass of white sangria. Our server was very efficient - almost a little too efficient hovering over the table but overall it was an amazing dining experience
Good food, great service. Our waiter was very nice and help when deciding what to eat !
Very disappointed with the quality of food. Lacked favour you’ll expect from Mexican dishes. Presentation was very poor and it was particularly disappointing as it is attached to the Westin Hotel so you maybe expecting good quality but you won’t get it here. Not worth the money or your time
The Fajitas were good
Lobster Quesadillas were delicious too
Downside they need a real Mixologist at the bar all of the drinks wer ordered had issues or flaws they were not good who messes up a Mojito or a Frozen Margarita?
Great food, great service, great view of the ocean!
Thanks Aaron for taking the time to review Lona! We look forward to having you join us again soon.
Great fajitas and the crab enchiladas were amazing! Great friendly service
Staff was very attentive and helpful. Parking was very easy, the valet was super nice and professional. Food and drinks were great! Can’t beat the view of the beach across the street. Overall great experience, can’t wait to be back.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this very detailed review. We are so glad you enjoyed everything, we hope to see you again soon!
Food was not authentic and not very tasteful. Its only for the view and a drink with chip and salsa. Overpriced, wont be going back
Excellent Mexican food, sitting right across from the Atlantic. Surprised how good the Margarita was. Music added to the atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your feedback Duane. We love to hear from our raving fans and we hope to see you again soon.
This is one of our favorite places to go. Santiago our server was excellent. Gave us great recommendations on what to order.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona with Santiago! Make sure to visit us on Tuesdays for $5 Tacos and Margaritas!
Lona is in a wonderful location. However, $17 for three tacos is silly. If you go up the street to Bodega, you will find better tacos for a better price. The chips were stale and the water is rarely refilled. The main course was good, just not very abundant.
Our server Flor was amazing! She was attentive and polite. The food was amazingly delicious, and the experience was fantastic! Definitely worth the visit!
Thank you so much for your feedback. We love to hear from our raving fans and we hope to see you again soon.
Food was soggy
No water refill
Waitress had attitude
Got snappy with me
I ate at tito in morning and food was not good soggy as well
Then i eat in evening same issues never again i ate lobster Quesadilla
When we first arrived and were seated at our table we were not greeted by a waitress/waiter. After 15 minutes of waiting I went over to the hostest stand and requested a manager be sent to our table. The manager was very nice and sincerly apologized. We thought the tone for the rest for the night was going to be unpleasent but the manager and our waitor ensured that we enjoyed our dining experience. The food was phenomenal! We ordered the lobster quesadillas and the steak fajitas. The manager also provided us with an order of the pork belly tacos which were absolutely delicious. We plan on returning in the future.
First time in Ft Lauderdale and this restaurant was on all the recommendations. Food was not to our taste and cocktails were worse in my opinion. Service was not that good either, with my experience in the restaurant industry being over 4 years. I loved the beachside venue however, very beautiful. I recommend this restaurant if you value ambience over food.
Food was AMAZING! Pleasantly surprised as we just noticed it when we walked by. SO MUCH FOOD too! Definitely worth it ! Not to mention the best mango margarita I’ve ever had!
Thanks for the review Giselle! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona. Our Margaritas are fantastic, next time you must also try our Paloma Brava cocktail! We look forward to having you join us again soon.
The food here is amazing and service was great! Javier did an amazing job and was kind and attentive. He did a great job helping me decide what to order and also making sure to check in. I order fajitas and lobster quesadilla and both were delicious. Also mango margaritas are so good! Definitely will come back and enjoyed the experience.
Great cruising friendly services great ambiance very good place
Thank you so much for the review!
Food was flavorless, unremarkable and uninspired. A completely forgettable meal and experience. And still made worse by the ongoing cluster at the valet. Won’t be back
The food was not
Things seemed off, got appetizers and main entree delivered at the same time, no silverware provided asked 2 times and finally came after food was sitting on table of 10 mins, we were just looking at our food. Drinks were not good, atmosphere was great the only saving grace. Food was hit or miss, some dish’s good other no good. We came from Chicago hoping for good foid and cocktails. I recommend this place for snacks and beer.
Ask for Nelson!!
Our 2nd visit. Parking at Weston with valet and restaueant validation $5. Nice view of beach. Prices reasonable, food fun and ok.
