    We made prior rsvp and waited over an hour to be seated. Jenna our waiter wasn’t polite nor did she seem to know the menu that well. I would only go to Sparrow for cocktails and the vibe. Not for dinning

    It was Billy’s birthday and we had a good time. Fernando was an EXCELLENT server right when we sat down he greeted us with a warm Smile and throughout our meal he checked on us and even served Billy a Delicious Chocolate Lava Brownie with vanilla ice cream for his birthday once we were done. We would definitely come back again (hope that Fernando will be working when we do.

    The food was good and we sat at a great table. Unfortunately, there was a very loud DJ playing and we could barely hear ourselves talk. My ears are still ringing the next day. We have eaten here before and it has always been enjoyable and fun. This time it felt like we were seated in the middle of a nightclub not a restaurant.

    It was my first time at Sparrow. I came for happy hour with a friend whose birthday is coming up. The birthday wasn’t noted in the reservation but somehow Ashley, our very personable, attentive and observant server found out. We’d only planned on having drinks and appetizers so imagine our surprise when my friend was presented with a flaming birthday dessert. What an awesome and memorable experience. Thank you!!!

    Very cool, very hip, very chic. But also, very loud (it was only 6pm with music at full throttle in a half-filled space) and very expensive. Wants to be LA, Miami, or NYC. But a $27 margarita? And 21% gratuity automatically added to check - we only had drinks). At least the views are pretty.

    The lady at door is always amazing, I actually recommend this location to alot of friends but Genisis the server is an absolute liability. The first time I got her she was drunk the second time she was hugging my boyfriend on New Years and I corrected her on 4/30/22 I took my friend on a double date she kept calling our dates baby and babe and is on the touchy side . She failed to bring us our check and had another server who was a amazing brought it for us. She tried to come back and apologize but its truly surprising that she’s still there. When I get her I just smile and get through the dinner and think to my self maybe she doesn’t know better but the staff knows of her behavior because I’m sure she has received several complaints.

    I want to start off by saying that the restaurant is beautiful I love the views however it is very chaotic and and unorganized and the staff seems unexperienced. I reserved a table for two I was running a little late under five minutes but my other party was already there they couldn’t seat her without me being present(understood) but once I arrived they had us waiting for a while despite of the reservation. We sat outside and mid way during our meal it started to rain. Where we were sitting the rain drenched our table (we stood in a spot that we couldnt get wet, but we were still close to our table) No one came to our table or us To assist us with moving, my friend saw a worker and spoke to them regarding being moved, but the staff was running around trying to accommodate A group for a birthday dinner that was being seated right next to us. The only person that came to us was the person who brought out the second portion of my meal and she was the one to move us and get our waiter for us and from there we just paid for our meal and left.

    Did not eat in sparrow. When the disc Jocky started the music you couldn’t carry on a conversation it was so loud. So we went down to the fine dining restaurant on the main floor. We had a most enjoyable evening and fabulous food. It was a joy seeing sparrow but the noise was way too much.

    Let’s be clear , this is more of a bar than a restaurant. Food was passable at best. Service was not great. Views are ok if you are standing but not while eating. Small tables. Good music ( our opinion ) and fun ambiance. I’d say if you’re staying at the hotel check it out , but for locals like us. This is a hard pass

    One of the best rooftop views in Ft Lauderdale. The drinks and food were on the high end but outstanding in presentation and taste. The service is lacking though. Coming from a hospitality background, I would like to experience less attitude and more attention to details, especially when being seated. We wait over 10 minutes for someone to acknowledge our presence.

    The management has yet to get this place figured out. It starts with a rude reception at the elevator to get to the restaurant with a bored employee standing by the elevator. Our reservations for 7:15 resulted in no table available, waited around for 30 minutes to finally get s table. The place is loud and disorganized, even the valet couldn’t find my car keys and my car was parked in front of the restaurant Food when it arrived, in stages, not everyone served at the same time was mediocre. Suggest going somewhere else

    I decided to give a try to this place for my wife birthday…no regret at all, food is great (you should try the snapper) also the service is good, management is making sure that everything is ok. The music is at the right level, so you can talk to the people in your party without the need of yelling. I guess that we’ll go there again.

First time I went there amazing experience, amazing service, loved it, however the second time I went, left a bad taste in my mouth, I don’t think I will be going back there ever again I’ll recommend it to anybody else.

    Loved everything about Sparrow! We could only get an early reservation out on the terrace, with a 2 hour maximum to stay at our table. We asked the hostess when we arrived if we could have drinks inside at the bar and hold our table and she said that’s fine she would come get us. We got seating for all 4 of us, and had such a great time at the bar, when she came to get us, we gave up our table to stay at the bar, we could have stayed all night if we wanted. The DJ was right near us, great music, the food was great, drinks were amazing as was Jessica who was our bar tender and server! Perfect night!

    It was too loud you can’t see the views whilst sitting the food did not come out at the same time the food wasn’t all that great either the place is beautiful but it’s definitely not a great date night spot. 5/10 maybe I was just looking for something quieter with better service.
