    The food was not as good as I expected . The steak wasn’t cooked correctly and I wasn’t impressed with the homemade bread or the cessation salad. The cups of water smelled like fish.

    Each time we’ve been here I haven’t really been impressed. The atmosphere is cool, the drinks are normally pretty good but the service and food was just OK in my opinion. Based on the items we’ve tried here, the appetizers have been the best things on the menu. The garlic bread appetizer is very tasty while the pasta dishes and pizza I’ve tried have been a bit on the bland side. As far as the service goes, there’s definitely room for improvement. The waitress we had yesterday disappeared on us at least 4 or 5 times and when we did ask her for something it felt like we were bothering her.

    Was really excited to visit this restaurant. Atmosphere and actual place was really nice and beautiful. However the food was extremely salty. Had to send several of our plates back. Bread was not fresh. Our waiter was great and very helpful. Not his fault but did not enjoy any of our meals. Not even dessert.

    We loved the outdoor area. The food and service was amazing. However, not all the fans were working and it did get a little uncomfortable. It would be nice to find a solution to make the outdoor area suitable for lunch time.

    We have been there many times, but today was an off day. The server was very robotic and not super friendly. The entrees were not hot and our meat pasta dish was undercooked, actually raw pork and meatballs inside of our favorite Pedezco mixed pasta dish.

    My second time there. My sister’s first time there. Our server, Jeremy, was hurried and not helpful. We felt like we were bothersome rather than welcome customers. The food was excellent. Not sure if I’ll come back. Went for dessert down the street and the service was excellent.

    If your looking for a trendy place where a lot of people seem to want to go, you've found it. I have tried to go to this restaurant in the past in the late afternoon when the tables were empty and the hostess told me I could ONLY sit inside at a table for two or outdoors on the couches (NOT a good place to try and consume pasta). Needless to say I have never felt more assaulted by a hostess in my life (and it's happened more than once, so it's a trend). The only reason I have returned there is my out of town guests request it. Frankly I think the food is nothing special. There is a huge herd of staff but the ONLY person that will stop at your table is your own server. The rest of the staff is laser focus on something else, certainly not looking around the restaurant to see if someone might need something. Lately I have found the whole experience to be less than desirable. If your visiting, skip this restaurant.

    The experience could have been so much better if our server was more engaged and there for the customer not the job. I was very disappointed in the service and when I tried to address it to the manager the staff were too busy to get him and this just added to our frustration. We were so looking forward to donning here as we are Canadians and it has been so long since we were back to beautiful Fort Lauderdale.

    Situated on the strip in the city of Ft Lauderdale with classy restaurants and boutiques. The canal is one block away if you want to take a boat. The Art Deco interior is great but the service is amazing! I had a reservation and they seated me right away. My server was extremely friendly and offered me cookies at the end with my jasmine tea. He was extremely attentive and sweet. I had the Caesar salad and I asked for anchovies and it was delicious. The dressing is home made so it has some nice tanginess. The shrimp risotto is delicious and perfectly cooked. The rice was perfect consistency and not too over cooked or undercooked. Next time I will try the pizza!

    We came from Toronto for vacation. I booked on open table almost a month ahead. It was extremely packed when we got there, and only got busier as the night went on. Even though our reso was for 8pm we still had to wait 40 mins for our table. The staff wasn’t super friendly, however the food was to die for. Highly recommend the back patio, it is stunning. Very loud and young crowd vibes, very fun and will be visiting again.
