The food is great, BUT extremely misleading on price. For example, we ordered poached shrimp on happy hour (priced at $3). While we expected a few shrimp with it being happy hour, we were surprised to pay $3 per shrimp. They were good, but not that good. Seems a little misleading to not price it per "shell" on the menu when our small happy hour order ends up being $15 for 5 shrimp.

This restaurant is outstanding. The service, the food, and décor are all top notch. We found this restaurant last year at our yearly stay at the Diplomat Resort. This restaurant was part of the multi-million dollar renovation. It is a real keeper! Raw bar is great, local caught, wild caught seafood. Happy hour is a great deal for well cocktails and the amazing burger! I've had the Raw Bar, Shrimp and Grits, Lobster Roll, and Burger...all are amazing. The craft cocktails are stunning including housemade gin, grenadine, and the pina coladas which are made with fresh coconut and fresh cream, no fake stuff. If a place takes the time to make a frozen drink at such a high quality, and takes the time to do something as simple as freeze ice cubes of iced tea to put into your glass, so not to dilute the iced tea you know you are in for a real treat! Please go here!!

The price was a bit high at $35/person for a buffet. The food was good but not great. More of an eclectic offering versus a traditional style selection. Very little in the way of seafood which was surprising given the fact that this location is on the beach.

My wife and I love Geoffrey Zakarian and were excited to eat at his restaurant waiting for a special occasion to go. Our 34th wedding anniversary was coming up so we went on Friday. We arrived early so we went to their bar and had a drink and some appetizers. They had Oyster Hour so we ordered some Oysters that were good size and fresh. The Ceviche was very good also. Our waitress was very nice and when she found out that it was our anniversary she brought us complimentary glasses of champagne. For dinner we had the gumbo, the diver scallops, the lobster roll and the Crawfish Mac and Cheese which were all delicious. Having said that, when dessert time came we where stuffed, but ended up ordering the chocolate pudding...OMG it was awesome, so save room. Between the free champagne and the fact that they validated my $20 parking ticket the dinner was very reasonable for the quality of the food.
Definitely going back and highly recommend it to all seafood lovers.

We were there for a lunch meeting and were told that there was no a la cart menu only a buffet which was not good and lacked any seafood which was the reason why we booked this location we would have e walked out but the business partner was already there and had traveled a long distance.

The chef did not want to make the menu item suggested to us by our server, so we had to make another choice. We know this because that is what their server actually said, “chef doesn’t want to make the 1/2 lobster, he can, but he doesn’t want to... would you like to order the lobster instead.” Afterward, the management made no accommodation at all...

The crawfish Mac and cheese was sub-par. Dry and cold. The clam chowder was excellent.

We tried: tuna tartare, crab croquettes, shrimp cocktail, corn bread with smoked honey butter, Brussels sprouts, scallops & the snapper. WOW JUST WOW! Everything was delicious and decadent. Our waiter, Paul, was incredible. Gave amazing suggestions, cheered us on when we picked good eats. He made it so exciting to be there. We cannot wait to come back and bring our family and friends to enjoy this amazing gem here in Hollywood FL!

Our server was well versed on the menu and made excellent recommendations. The wine prices were excessively high. Some wines were marked up in excess of 3 times the retail price. There was a unique cocktail menu with unusual but, very tasty combinations. The food and presentation were very good. The Diplomat Hotel is absolutely gorgeous. I would recommend this restaurant, especially for the seafood lover.

First, the server, Paul was exceptional. Very friendly, very menu knowledgeable. His recommendations were excellent. The management made sure I was satisfied. The restaurant GM came to my table, introduced herself, inquired about my satisfaction. Impressed. The food was excellent. Presentation, top flight. I was told all pasta is made in house. Nothing like fresh pasta. Also, as much as possible, all seafood & vegetables are locally sourced. Try the heirloom lettuce salad. Especially go for the fresh linguini & clam sauce. Finally, they give extra special attention to birthdays. Can't really admit to being a "foodie" but I highly recommend it if you're in Hollywood Beach, Florida.

Very disappointing experience. Huge fan of Geoffrey Zakarian so I was over the moon when I found out his restaurant was inside the hotel. The service was very, very slow and I wasn’t impressed with the cocktail menu. I disliked the overly sweet flavors of the ceviche and I didn’t enjoy the gumbo. The oysters and Brussels sprouts were fine, as was the cornbread served at the beginning of the meal.. I hate to say this, but overall the flavors were off and I wouldn’t recommend this place.

Never before have I had food this good served this quickly. The timing between courses was perfection only having about 3 minutes between each. I went here first for lunch one day and have the lobster roll and it's easily the best lobster roll I've ever had with a large whole piece of lobster as the base

Then the next night I had dinner starting with east coast oysters, then the roasted scallops, finished with an apricot souffle cake for dessert. As good as the food was, what really made my night was the knowledge and conversation of my server Gary. He explained the difference in taste and appearance of east and west coast oysters. I commented on the sheer perfection of the carmelized scallops and he explained how the kitchen prepares and cooks them for that perfect result. He recommended the apricot souffle cake which was the perfect finish to an incredible meal.

The entire staff was friendly and professional and service was quick from seating, to ordering, to cooking, to bussing. I can't wait to come back.

We waited over 1hr to be seated on Mother’s Day. We had reservations at 10:45. At 11:45. Before we sat down the hostess told us since our reservation was at 10:45 we have to order from the breakfast menu. Even though it was brunch we reserved, she told us they had over booked and we were not allowed to have brunch which began at 12pm. At that moment we left. Horrible experience. Wouldn’t recommend this place.
