It’s was ok but I was a little bit disappointed. They did not have ( at least today ) menu . It was a buffet and it’s was expensive for what it was .
I would have rated this experience higher but there was a terrible storm that rolled in and the patio got soaked. It was really loud and everyone got soaked. The restaurant didn’t seem to be prepared to move patrons inside for shelter.
Thanks for the review! Make sure to stop by for Sunday Brunch!
The food is just ok, would not go back. Great ambiance and the waiter was friendly.
Great mexican music, the staff is super friendly. Tres leches is a no miss option for dessert.
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona. The Tres Leches is fantastic, next time you must try our amazing Churros! We hope to see you again soon.
Excellent food and cocktails. Nice view of the beach. Good service. Will be back.

Thanks for your review Daniela! We hope to welcome you back again soon.
Phenomenal experience! All of the margaritas were so fresh and yummy, the lobster quesadilla and shrimp tacos were amazing, and Flo (our waitress) was so helpful and sweet. Would definitely come back
Thank you for joining us. We are so glad to hear that Flo took good care of you and you enjoyed the Lobster Quesadilla and Shrimp Tacos. I hope you also gave the Tuna Tostada a try! Please come back and dine with us again soon.
Lovely ambiance and atmosphere, right on the beach! Creative twist on Mexican fare, with delicious results. Great drink menu...especially if you like margaritas. A little pricey, but hey, it’s prime real estate! Service was lovely and attentive.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona! Make sure to stop by for Sunday Brunch!
Both my wife and I were very happy with everything across the board. They really did a great job. The attention was second to none; everyone was kind and attentive, even the other staff members who were not attending to us would ask if we needed or wanted anything. Food was good, freshly cooked, hot and best of all came out fairly quick. Place has great outdoor seating with ocean view. It was pretty busy overall and yet the noise level was not bad. Overall, I would go back anytime and I highly recommend it.

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 soon!
Food was great, everyone was so friendly and helpful, our server was wonderful. Our friends from out of town loved the location, the view and the food.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona! Make sure to visit us on Tuesday (3pm-5pm) for $5 Tacos and Margaritas!
We had an amazing experience. The service and the food were excellent.
Had an awesome brunch! Dessert, omelet and Mexican dishes were awesome. Had a duet of Three Little Birds with Simpson at the omelet station while he made my yummy omelet.
Had a lovely lunch with my wife and cousin. We went for lunch (1pm) on a Saturday. Jorge, our waiter was phenomenal. Great guy, very nice. Food was terrific. Had the Lobster quesadillas, and shrimp tacos. Terrific. Drinks were tasty, and the view wonderful. Dessert was great also According to my wife and cousin who indulged in two house favorites(excuse me for forgetting the names, i was enjoying several sambucas and espresso for my dessert). Anyways, we would go back again, I can’t say anything bad about the place. CHEERS🥂
If you want to forget about this pandemic time we are going thru, have a great time, the best food, the best drinks, and the best service in Fort Lauderdale, then I would recommend you to come check Lona Cocina Tequileria out. Since the minute you get there until you leave, you feel at home.
Flor, our waitress, did an amazing job, she was courteous, friendly and always making sure everything was fine. The whole team did a great job! Definitely coming back and trust me, you won't be let down. Plus the beautiful ocean is just steps away and makes the view priceless.
Me and friend had ceviche and queso fundido with tortillas as appetizers...Yummy!!! For drinks, me and my friend had La Tamarita...tamarind never tasted so good . For lunch, my friend had the Tacos al Pastor and I had Shrimp tacos with plantains with Mexican cheese and crema...with jabanero sauce on the side. The best!
Thank you, Flor and Lona Cocina Tequileria for an amazing service. God bless!
PS: Thank you for the Tres Leches!
Lona Cocina was a fun place for dinner. Our server Rick was excellent. The chicken enchiladas were good as were the fish tacos. Good safety protocols. A fun place to dine overlooking the beach and ocean.
Guacamole was tasteless not freshly made. Great drinks. Nice beachside ambiance with good service. Best dish was the lobster quesadilla.
The food was amazing!!! We didn’t get the ambiance the pictures displayed because it was raining and crazy dark because it’s turtle season!
The food looked more exciting on the website and this app than in person. Although a lovely location, I had higher expectations of the food based on the description than what was actually served. The prices were high based on the quality of taste, and serving size.
Crystal was such an accommodating waitress. She made it a great night. The food was good (we had the Grouper and Shrimp Tacos). But the food was not notable enough for us to ever visit again. Do go for a good outdoor dining experience.
First, we got there and they gave our reserved table to the people that came in right before us, while we were standing there in line. Second, we asked out the dine out Ft Lauderdale deals and the menu was not the same as the one posted on the website. The waitress was very efficient. She kept taking our drinks away and bringing a new one before we had finished the one in front of us. Finally, I asked for a to go box for my delicious empanada and it was never brought to me. On the bright side, the guacamole was delicious and so were the drinks. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and the view is amazing. It would’ve been a perfect night except for those few things that I mentioned at the beginning.
I think our waiters was named Richard R and he was great! We loved the shrimp tacos and the lobster quesadilla! The queso with chorizo was also amazing! I highly recommend.
We were visiting the area for a couple of days and were in the mood for Mexican food - walked over to Lona and we were blown away! Absolutely enjoyed the vibe and food!! Best part, everything was pandemic friendly! Staff wore masks and they had paperless menus! Our waitress Brittany was so sweet and fun! We took her up on her dessert recommendation (tres leches) and we weren't disappointed! If we're back in the area, we're coming here for a meal again!
there was no MExico Independence day celebration nor special, for a Mexican restaurant that was somehow expected, but we had a good time
Great service and food was very filling.
Love the ambience
Service was good, food was average at best. Portion were small for the price.
Great service, Flavorful food, strong drinks and perfections desserts. What more could you ask for?!
Food was good, but the plate presentation did not invite to eat! Service was very good! Bianca was diligent when we returned a plate since the chicharrón wasn’t good.
Guys rock ...!
We ate twice while staying at the hotel. Crystal was our waitress and was absolutely incredible. Great food, great atmosphere good drinks and even better service.
Dined there three times over the weekend. Food was really good. But couldn’t understand why the food took so long every time. The worst was Weekend Brunch that was supposed to start at 11:30. We sat down at 11:15 and didn’t get to brunch being served till noon. I understand restaurants run behind but we sat for 15 min before a server even came over for water etc. Communication is all we’re asking for. Then when food was ready, everyone jumped in line so took a bit as well.
Beautiful place and scenery but felt they were short staffed all weekend unfortunately. Would def recommend assuming quicker service.
Great ambiance, excellent customer service. Dishes were savory.
Nice place for brunch. Good ambiance and great view.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Lona! Make sure to visit us on Tuesdays for $5 Tacos and Margaritas!
This was our first restaurant experience since the Pandemic. We wanted to eat outside for safety reasons. We lucked out. We had a great table. So much Latin and Mexican ambience. I started out with a Lona margarita which was great..We loved the cerviche and the Tuna tostada appetizers and shared an excellent shrimp tacos. So delicious. We had a great server. We would come back next time we were in Ft. Lauderdale. The tables were spaced and we felt safe...
The place has an awesome ocean view, delicious cuisine, especially the ribs. Moreover, you don't have to wait for a long time to get your food ready. We waited no more than 10 mins.
Our service Jorge was the best, a real asset to the business. Great food too
One of my favorite places in Fort Lauderdale! Service is amazing and food is great every time.
This restaurant is amazing!! Queso is amazing! Lobster quesadillas is amazing!! We will definitely be going back.
