a little hidden gem one block west of the beach. the atmosphere is unique for fort lauderdale- there should be more places like this! an enclosed outdoor courtyard surrounded by some foliage & string lighting. the staff is very friendly and accommodating. they were happy to modify menu items for vegans.
Thank you for your review and for coming in. I hope to see you here again soon. Cheers //Greger
it was just too hot and humid there! should have chosen indoor dining that time
Hidden local restaurant. The owner is so nice and very attentive. I went with three girl friends and we had a lovely time. Loved the ambiance of the space, the area is surrounded with trees and they have a small lounge seating with a fire pit. The food was really good and they were super accommodating with my friend's request of a vegan pizza. It was perfect.
Hi Jashira. Thank you for coming in and it makes me really happy that you had a good time. As you can tell, this restaurant is my baby. I hope to see you soon again. Let me know when you in next time. //Greger
Excellent , quiet atmosphere to enjoy good wine with good food. I would recommend it to all friends and family.
It was so good we returned the following evening , which was a Sunday, only to find it was closed.
Delicious food with great outdoor ambiance. Cheese board was very large with great meat selection.
This place has great potential. It’s quite charming.
Service was ok, waitress was not very friendly. One of the cheese on the platter was still frozen and the crackers were definitely not fresh. Pizza was good.
Would I go again or recommend a friend. Only to have a glass of wine.
The location is cute and kitschy. Unfortunately, this was a meal reheated from Costco. Everything was over salted, not fresh and came from a package. We started with charcuterie - it was thick prepackaged meats and enormous chunks of cheese. difficult to eat. It came with 4 stale sesame crackers. We tried the antipasto, which came straight from a jar - cubed salami, olives, a few veggies. It was so cold the olive oil was congealed. We decided the skip any pastas and try the pizzas. Sadly, no better. Premade crusts and limited toppings. To top it off, the wine was warm. The restaurant is called Wine Garden. At a minimum, I expect them to respect the wine and serve it properly. Don't waste your money or time - too many good restaurants out there.
Charming hidden gem. The food was delicious and we were served by a lovely, friendly waitress. I had the Penne and my husband & daughter had the Bolognese. We'll be back!
Server was definitely new and wasn’t great with understanding English. Pizza was amazing and tomato salad was just ok, you can tell that everything is made to order and super fresh ingredients! Flies buzzing around and not the cleanest spot we’ve ever been to. Definitely a topsy turvy review but that was the experience.
Wine list wasn’t very extensive and quality of wine was okay
We always have a great time when we ‘re here. Beautiful and vibrant atmosphere!
Wonderful environment, as if we were in Europe. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable of the wine and pairings. Highly recommended for a date night. The two of us shared the meat and cheese platter and a pizza! Perfect amount of food for two. Will visit again next time we are in FL.
We really enjoyed the outdoor patio and food was good. Loved the appetizer plate!
Our server was fantastic!
This was a great find! Wonderful al fresco dining. Wine flights were a fun option. Food was very good. Will definitely go again!
Loved the setting and food and wine choices. Service could have been better but would definitely go back if in the area.
Very warm and humid. NO ac and no fans. Our wine was warmer than room temperature.
Went to Wine + Garden and was pleasantly surprised with the ambience. Didn’t know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Wine list was extensive so everyone could find something they liked. My only issue was the food. We ordered a few appetizers and salads which were just ok. Try-color salad was basically lettuce, a couple tomatoes and dressing and was $14. Wasn’t impressed. Didn’t try the pastas or pizzas so maybe worth trying next time. Would definitely go back just for the ambience.
Lovely little garden area with great food
Great find. 1 block off from the beach, quaint outdoor seating in a private courtyard. Even better happy hour drinks on Saturday.
My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner date at Wine and Garden. The staff was very friendly, the ambiance was perfect and the food was delicious. Tucked away just off of A1A you don’t hear the traffic noise, but you can still feel the ocean breeze. I will definitely be recommending this place to friends and we will be going again.
Nice change from beach and Las Olas restaurants. Outdoor dining built into an older building several blocks from beach. Solid Italian food. Friendly staff. Slightly eclectic. We really enjoyed the evening. Avoid if raining.
Cute little spot-Glad we discovered it. Extremely nice people.
Beautiful and romantic experience! Jordan was our server and she made sure to make the evening very special for us! We are definitely coming back!!!
Nice courtyard experience. Very disappointed that the server was not knowledgeable about the wine list. With a name like wine and garden.... They discontinued a wine that we ordered and after an long wait brought another slightly more expensive replacement. Really better for pizza and a causal glass of wine then serious date night.
Honestly such great vibes there. Manager was amazing very welcoming and loved that it wasn’t full of the spring break tourist. Would highly recommend this place to anyone just looking for a good date night or place to just enjoy the outside atmosphere.
It was a beautiful night to enjoy dinnee outside. This place is gorgeous for a romantic outing or a nice outing with friends. I would recommend adding pitcher options for the Sangria. Overall, the customer service was great and I will be returning.
Staff was courteous and friendly! Food was excellent! We started with a charcuterie platter and then had a pizza. Both were as delicious as they looked. The wine we had came from a boutique winery, which exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed having our after dinner drinks, and toasting marshmallows at one of their fire pits. It’s a great place and we can’t wait to go back!😃
food was amazing.. made us feel at home. Definitely recommend!
Wine + Garden certainly has its perks but also some areas of improvement. The charm of the garden is apparent and you can almost get lost in the whimsical nature of it. What is lacking is good food appropriate for this type of atmosphere and great service. While I can't recommend it for dinner, it is a great place to grab a glass of wine in an adorably charming garden.
Regarding my disappointment with the food, options were limited and represented uninspired average Americanized Italian food, which did not match the decor of the location. There is so much potential to get into the theme here! Food arrived cold for all four in our party, which might partly be due to how they prepare to serve the meals. They line up the dishes in front of a window and even though there is a heat lamp, the wind makes it ineffective. Flavors were very average and their "spicy" was warm at best. It would have been wonderful to see more small plate options, and perhaps some unique farm to tableish type dishes.
There are a decent amount of wine options, more bottles than glasses, which is ok. The real winner here is the decor. Good job on that!
Also, Ill upload photos, but the address takes you to the hotel next door, the Atlantic, so heads up about that. The entrance is next to the hotel through a little archway that leads you into the garden.
It was SUPER windy while we were there, maybe its always like that, which make me nervous around the fire pits since the fire was dancing all over. I envision someones dress catching on fire at some point. I've seen glass around the fire in some places, which would have made me feel more comfortable to sit there.
Its a decent place and certainly worth the trip for a glass of wine in the garden, but not much more.
Beautiful ambience! Food was great! Don’t miss the cannoli cone and sitting in the garden by the fire.
For the prices the food was too high. The wine was disgusting and could tell the bottle had been open for a few days. Nice dining atmosphere but they need to lower their prices. Sauce was sub par at best. Will not be dining here again.
I love the garden atmosphere. It's a very pleasant space for dinner and a great glass of wine.
Wine & Garden is a beautiful outdoor restaurant, with fire pits, trees and romantic lighting. Having spent the day traveling to Florida ,we were super hungry Our server was gracious and personable. She was apologetic about the length of time we waited for our dinner( we arrived at 7:30 ordered a very simple meal- 2 pizzas and a salad, which was served at 9 pm)
We realized that there must have been an issue with the kitchen, as the pizza we received had ( what we three assessed) a pre-made store bought crust.
Why we weren’t told that there was an issue is beyond me.
While we felt sympathetic for the server, for staying calm when circumstances were spiraling out of control, after the fact we felt bamboozled.
Had we been told the truth, we either could have changed our order or gone elsewhere.
Open air, wonderful, food and nice staff. They were very backed up and slow this night but I don’t know if that is exception or the rule.
Great atmosphere. You feel like you are visiting a good friend and spending time in their garden. We enjoyed cheese board with wine 🍷. Diane was a great server!
Went there on vacation with kids. The setting is very nice and the staff were courteous. It took a very long time for our pizzas to come, which didn’t sit well with tired kids. Would give it another chance.
Great experience! No issues whatsoever, and the pizza was great. Brianne was super friendly, had great recs, and was a top-notch server. Thanks!
Very good Italian food. Wine was excellent. Amazing service. Thank you to Jordan and owners for giving us a very nice experience twice at Wine and Garden.
