    Fun spot on the New River, we came by boat. Seated inside away from the live music outside we waited over 15 minutes to meet our server. He was new and told us upfront he was learning. The live music was cranked up inside, found that a touch annoying. The food was tasty and we enjoyed ourselves after the drinks arrived. We will return with casual unhurried expectations and will sit outside near the live music to enjoy the full experience.

    Great place to have a relaxing and fun dinner before going to the theater… Five minute walk through the park! Fort Lauderdale water taxi stops right by the restaurant… Friday night has live music! Everybody on staff was absolutely lovely… Smiling faces, and ready to help make the experience awesome!

    I’ve always heard great things about this restaurant from my friends many said they ate from the one in Sawgrass but I decided to try this one out with my kids . The pizza was great but my husband and myself tried out the ribeye which said redskin potatoes, but we got fried potatoes! Was not satisfied with meal or service very disappointed!

    The food was great. -Pizza was hot, fresh, and good flavor. Kids loved the cheese pizza and the "meat-lovers" was really good. The sausage on it was spicy, but in a good way. -Pretzel was really fresh and cheese sauce was good. -Artichoke dip was really good and chips were fresh. -Blackberry Mule was outstanding. It felt like they were short-handed on staff, but the staff that was there was hustling and working hard to make things happen. Kudos for that as well because it got fairly busy.

    Great location right on the New River, nice open space. Our salads and pizzas were delicious, prepared just how like them. I particularly like the Spivey sauce. Finally our server was outstanding quick with the drinks and perfect spaced out each of the servings. Bottom line we’ll return again.

    The service was horrible. I had a reservation and there were many open tables but we had to wait 15 min in line just to check in. It took a long wait for our server to come over and even longer to actually get even a glass of water which we had to ask for. The food took an hour because it was not put in for an extended time after our order was taken. The food itself was good.

    We had been here before with our large party and made a reservation with open table online for outside. I had to call 2x to change the number of people and time yet no one mentioned they don't make reservations for outside. When we showed up the day of our reseravation, both waitresses gave me attitude when I said our reservation was for outside. They both said "we don't take reservations for outside". Mind you, not even half the tables were filled and it was Sunday at 1:30pm. She set our table (with children) up right in the sun and next to the dj booth. When we asked to please be seated in the shade she acted like that would not be possible and disappeared for at least 5 minutes, leaving us and the kids standing around waiting. We finally got seated about 15 min after our reservation. The server was very kind, he helped put the tables together and rushed the order for the kids (pancakes). The food was actually pretty good when it finally came out - 20+ minutes for 2 orders of pancakes seemed a bit much considering the restaurant was less that half full. Overall the food and server were great but the rest was very disappointing.

    The waitress was lovely. The mocktails were awful, the seafood paella extremely salty and the clams on it were essentially empty and not fresh. The music at 8pm was blasting at full volume to the point that you couldn’t talk without shouting. Awful experience, awful food, awful drinks.

    We used to go here for pizza and drinks. The pizza was really good initially. Crispy and flavorful. The last few times the pizza is subpar. One time way undercooked. The other time warm not hot and looked like it had been sitting on the counter awhile before brought to the table. No consistency in food quality.

    When I saw that the both ceviche and the "fishermen's catch" featured tilapia, I got worried. Rightfully so. Overall, the food was pretty awful and that extended to easy-to-make items like the pizza (which wasn't even as good as the typical frozen pizza I buy at home) and the salad (tossing a dressing that tasted just like Kraft--in fact, I am willing to bet it was.). It's sad to see another new Fort Lauderdale restaurant exhibit such low standards of food quality. I really want the food scene in this city to thrive and this place just takes us so many steps back. ;(
