Food was very good but waitress was not very attentive. Tables at the front of the restaurant are very close together so very little wiggle room and could here other people’s conversations.

Great location, great for people watching but don’t expect great food. The food was decent, but relative to the prices, wasn’t a great value. However service was very attentive and excellent overall

Overall a good place, food was very good, service was excellent. Location right on strip in Ft Lauderdale. Only slight negative is that it’s next to noisy pub.
But the restaurant also had their own live music which was good and served to drown out next door.

The food was pretty good, as usual. Had the calamari, B&B Burger, and Fried Mahi sandwich. All were great, though the calamari had a bit too much oil.

It's currently Spring Break, so A1A is busier and noisier than normal, so if that affects you, sitting on the patio isn't advised. In this weather though, who wants to sit indoors.

A bit disappointed that they add a 15% service charge to every cheque. Will dissuade most from adding a tip for the server.

Loved this place! We were there during spring break so people watching very interesting! We had great service. The music was island music. Perfect for outside dining. The food was delicious! My daughter and I shared chicken parmigiana. Plenty for both of us. Have to say it was the best I ever had. Our friend had a pasta dish with shrimp. She ate every bite. Will definitely be back if we return to Ft. Lauderdale.

Saxophone player was good, but seemed to be on a break more than he was actually entertaining. Also, we are not from this state, and we were shocked that smoking was allowed on a patio where people are dining, in both the covered & open sections. Not pleasant, or healthy.

Thanks to Spazio for hosting such a large group of 8. We had a lovely time and our server was very friendly with his slide show of specials that were available and was very attentive. Live music in the background was nice and food was tasty.

Casual Dining on the beach. Nice menu selection. I had the Chicken parm. It was good. The chicken was pounded thin, and actually came out with a crunch which is usually not the case. Prices were reasonable considering the location.

my girl friend's : "Papparelle Porcini" was poor.

Excited to have my out of town agency experience the Ft Lauderdale beach scene after being in meetings all day. Quite disappointed upon arrival to find our reservation cancelled. I was called 4 times by an unknown number and because I was in meetings all day, I wasn't to take the call.

We were a few min early for reservation for 12 at 7:15 and they had already given away our table. They ended up seating us outside at two separate tables. The live music was great but the food service was very slow. Food tasted great so the evening was not lost and the cool breeze was nice with a great view of the Super moon.

The restaurant is located a cross the streets with beach. Has indoor and outdoor seating and live music. This is a very loud place but a nice place. We ate dinner here. Service was good. What we ordered ( lobster ravioli and chicken) was very tasty. It's worth visiting this place.

The best part of dining here was the outdoor seating with live entertainment on a mild December evening. The waiter was extremely inattentive... I asked 3 times for some more water. The food was average and my dish arrived lukewarm, not hot. Overall, not terrible, but I would not eat here again.

Food was OK...ambience left a lot to be desired unless you are seeking a waterfront hang-out reminiscent of the Jersey Shore...noisy and very, very down market....server was quite good and knowledgeable from Westchester County....reminded me of "The Sopranos" and the wait staff at their hang-out "Bada Bing"...only thing missing were the strippers!

The reservation was not received from Open table according to the restaurant . They did accommodate us but in the back of the restaurant rather than an outside table as requested. Even when I showed the girl my confirmation she said she didn’t have it . Open table let me down on this one. My family w three children were visiting from Ohio and we went there to see the lighting of the snowman on the beach but we were so far back in the restaurant where no one was we couldn’t see anything.

The food and service were wonderful. They had decent seating inside and on the outdoor patio, however they had live music which was quite lively. If you were there for drinks and entertainment it would be fine. Dinner and conversation with friends, not so much. All in all we had a good time. The food and service truly were exceptional.
