"Start your day with an oceanside breakfast experience at Tinta. Located at The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, Tinta is the sister restaurant to the resort's upscale Mexican eatery, Lona Cocina Tequileria. Tinta, meaning "ink" in Spanish, is the ink to Lona's canvas, which is a reference to Chef Pablo Salas' love of tattoos. Tinta serves breakfast exclusively while Lona has rocketed to popularity for its lunch and dinner service, killer brunch, and bar program. Whether you are a local or just passing by, enjoy breakfast inside or out on the restaurant's gorgeous oceanside terrace. Tinta by Lona is Fort Lauderdale's go-to spot for a little "sabor" with a Mexican twist, and is sure to kick off any day right."

Purely based on looks, this was a super cool place… but it took a very long time before we got waited on. We were seated and then ignored for 20 minutes. And the only reason we finally got service was because I had to go mention to someone that a server hadn’t come to our table. I do think it was an honest mistake but i couldn’t believe no one noticed we’d been sitting there while others were served. Other people did seem perfectly happy with their service. The restaurant itself is super cute with great ocean views. The food however was only ok and our bloody Maria’s were not my favorite, so it didn’t really make up for the rocky start. And no one apologized for any of it. Maybe it was just an off day since so many others seem to enjoy it, but I don’t think I’d recommend this restaurant.

We went for brunch on Sunday and had reservations. We were sat in the back of the restaurant with no view. Food was excellent. Service was below average. Restaurant information was validated parking which means you are charged $7.50 + tip instead of $20. I wish this information had been available. The brunch was not worth the cost.

We were looking forward to having a nice brunch before leaving Fort Lauderdale. We thought that because Tinta was part of the Westin hotels chain, the service would be amazing. We were thrilled reading the reviews. At the end, we waited 1 hour for our food!!! The restaurant was super crowded, and noisy. At the end not a bad experience but nothing out of the ordinary.

Took my mother out for breakfast on Mothers day. There was a long line to check in, but the hostesses were asking people on the line who had reservations. Luckily for me, i had one and was able to get out of the line and seated right away! Our server was a delight! Breakfast was amazing, and the views of the ocean were great! Loved it! recommend it highly!

I’ve eaten here a few times before and I was very impressed with the service, mixology and of course their Mexican dishes, however this time for breakfast the chef made a few errors that had to be corrected. The waitress was helpful in fixing these errors but I’d be lying if I said it didn’t put a damper on my start of the day. We’ll chalk it up to a simple anomaly since prior visits were on point.

We waited over an hour for our food, and still it didn’t come out all together. I did let the manager know, and she went to check on things. Momentarily after that out food did start to come out, but it would have been nice if she followed back up at any point before we left.
