Horrible! Dirty ,bad food, can't wait to see what goes into this space next!
Food was amazing and service was fast, but we felt rushed. Our food came quickly and our waitress asked if we wanted dessert and we said no thank you. She promptly brought us our check even though we planned on staying for a few more drinks. It was a bummer considering they weren’t too crowded. Carne asada tacos were unreal though!!
Everything was excellent. Recommend guacamole and flight of tacos
The staff recognized that I was particularly nervous about dining out and were incredible. They provided our party (with two toddlers) a great table tucked around the corner with so much space around us, that I instantly felt more relaxed. We enjoyed the most delicious brunch with excellent drinks and can't wait to go back. The food is amazing, the drinks are fantastic and the staff are the warmest and attentive people, that also recognize when you're still working on something (if you are slow, because of toddlers!)! Can not wait to go back! Thank you.
Excellent service, food, and drinks! I'll definitely be back.
no social distancing, mask wearing was limited to staff. Food had little desirable flavor. The only redeeming was the wait staff and manager were very friendly.
On vacation and had eaten here for breakfast but heard dinner was a must. We had the cerviche to start and not disappointed! The lobster quesadillas were very good too!
Overall a great experience! Food and atmosphere combined make it our favorite spot in Fort Lauderdale.
Loved it had great service.
Thank you for the 5-stars! Hope to see you again soon!
The brunch here was really good. The waitress Skeeter was outstanding, she was very attentive and just went above and beyond. The other chefs at the manned stations were soo helpful and would gladly go above and beyond to make your day. the chef brought out whipped cream to our table after my daughter asked for some at the waffle station. Just outstanding!

We put customer experience and satisfaction as our priority, and your review reaffirms the hard work we put in every day. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again.
Mediocre food. Service was very pleasant. Drinks watered down with a huge amount of ice. There are better choices. This feels like a tourist trap.
This place was amazing! The food was incredible, the vibe was perfect, and it was just an awesome experience from beginning to end. We ended up being about 20 minutes late for our reservation because we got hung up at the airport, but they had no problem with that and seated us when we arrived! Highly recommend this place when you’re at Ft Lauderdale beach!
Thanks for your review and kind words. Our team looks forward to having you join us again sometime!
Loved restaurant. Service was a little slow at times
Thank you for your feedback Kim. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona and we apologize for any delay in service. We hope to see you again soon!
Nice venue, great location, reasonable prices. Food is good, not great. Service was lackluster at best. While some drinks were amazing, the spicy avocado cocktail was god awful. The manager was very very attentive and personable (much more than the server). Overall its nice if you are staying around the area but there are much better food options in both directions of A1A.
Dined here with friends and had a great evening! Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The management was present and friendly and made sure all of their guests were enjoying themselves.
Thank you so much for writing this wonderful review Chris! Our team looks forward to having you join us again sometime!
Fine experience... busy time of year and all felt rushed... but the location, atmosphere, and food makes this an obvious choice if in area..
The food was just ok. Very loud and hard to hear anything. The added a 18% “service charge” to our bill and the waitress told us that was not a tip, it was an extra charge for the holidays. It was not mentioned anywhere beforehand that we would get charged extra. Felt as though the restaurant was trying to trick us and just take more money. Very disappointing
Food was absolutely amazing. Cannot recommend enough!
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona. Our team looks forward to having you join us again sometime!
Early dinner for New Years Eve. Service and ambience were very good. The food was good but my expectations were higher based on the reviews i had read
We had superb service during the earlier hours of New Years Eve. They made us comfortable with our social distancing concerns and went out of their way to make us have a great outing and meal.
We are especially thankful to the manager Wayne and our waitress Claudia.
Thank you for the review. We are so happy to hear that Wayne and Claudia took great care of you. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Pretty good. experience. Went for $5 tacos and $5 margaritas and was told they don’t do the $5 tacos.
Everything was awesome!!
Thank you for your review! We hope to welcome you back again soon.
Nice ambiance, but all of the dishes ordered were heavy on the salt.
Outstanding service - cordial and attentive and prompt. The tuna tostada appetizer is a must!
Thank you for joining us. If you liked the Tuna Tostada, you must try the Lobster Quesadilla next time you are in! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Hands down best Mexican food we ever ate! Cannot wait to go back again.
This review made our day! We hope to see you again soon.
Christmas family get together.
Thanks for the review!
Thank you for the 5-stars!
Muy buena la comida y la atención ni se diga
Gracias por su comentario! Nos alegra saber que disfrutaron de la comida y servicio de Lona. Esperamos verlos de nuevo por aqui!
The food was innovative & delicious and our server Anna was so exceptional that we had to came back another dinner with friends.
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona. We look forward to having you join us again soon.
All enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent and waiter made sure to check on us before the $5 margaritas on Tuesday expired at 7. Setting on the beach on ground floor of Westin very nice. Good energy and music and decent outdoor bar area.
Thank you so much for your review! We hope to see you again soon!
Great location. Good food. I eat here often. Lunch and dinner selection is good. It’s a different type of Mexican food than usual.
Thanks for your review! We love to hear from our raving fans! See you again soon.
The server was very busy. I think they need more servers and busboys. He was very nice and knowledgeable. He tried very hard to please us. The guacamole and the empanada appetizer was very good. But the entrees disappoint. The Tampiquena was overcooked and lacked flavor. The fish was good, but the vegatable was overly spicy. The place was loud and chaotic. It was OK
Have eaten here twice in the months that we have been down here, the food is absolutely fantastic.
We are so glad you enjoyed your experience at Lona, come back and see us soon!
Love this place such good food
Thank you for the review. Make sure to stop by for Sunday Brunch!
Food and service were both excellent.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this great review Ilissa! Looking forward to having you in again soon!
This was our second time in a week returning to Lona Cocina Tequileria. Sometimes the second visit is not a s good as the first. This was not the case for this restaurant. We had asked for the same server, Bianka K, who once again was fantastic. The highlight of the meal for me was the Drunken Grouper that was pan seared and came with a spicy cilantro salad, Mexican glaze and a cauliflower purée. We mixed together, the flavor sensations was an explosion of happiness to my palate. We also had the churros for desert that had the precise crunch on the outside and softness in the inside, heaven!
I love finding good and memorable restaurants and this one is now permanently in my book.
Your review made our day! We are thrilled that your 2nd visit was as good as your first. Bianka and our Chef Jorge will definitely be happy to read what you wrote. We put customer experience and satisfaction as our priority, and your review reaffirms the hard work we put in every day. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again.
Food was good as well as service. The food is a little pricey. However, the $14 for a Titos on the rocks floored me. It may have been the smallest pour I have ever seen. We enjoy food and having a couple of cocktails but it wont be here again as long as drinks are at $14. Our 4 glasses of Titos could have bought 3 bottles. Tip, if u are going to charge $14...pour a drink.
Fantastic food and service. This was our first time dining at Lona Concina here in Fort Lauderdale. From the hostess, waitress, and food, everything was perfect. Our server was Bianka R. I can always tell the sign of a good server when you never get to the bottom of your water glass and they come over at the appropriate time to check on you. She did all of that with a smile that I wish I could have seen behind her mask. All of the Covid-19 protocols were also strictly followed.
For the food, my wife and I split an order of Ceviche that was the best I ever had. We also did an order of the Tacos al Carbon and Baja Fish Tacos. Both were delicious and provided an explosion of flavor. Ever the salsa with he chips was so different and flavorful. It was also $5 Margarita night. As someone who makes their own Margaritas regularly, these definitely were up to and exceeded my standards. Usually, Margarita drink specials come out too watery, these did not. They were perfect.
We will be returning to this restaurant later in the week to try more of their dishes and will ask for Bianka again.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona with Bianka! Our Chef will be happy to hear your wonderful compliments on his food. We look forward to having you join us again.
Sunday brunch overlooking the beach at the Westin. Bottomless mimosas with delicious Mexican buffet. Zesty flavors. Worth a visit if you visiting!
Thank you, Jose, for your review and kind words. Our team looks forward to having you join us again sometime!
