Food was very good. Service was somewhat slow. Other tables received bread and olive oil for dipping. None was brought to our table in spite of there being bread plates on the table, yet we ordered salad and full entrees. I felt the service was inconsistent with what others received from the same waitress.
Ordered a filet medium, came out rare, would expect an Italian Chip House to prepare a steak right the first time. Not even an apology was provided. Server was difficult to understand due to his being soft spoken and the loud ambient noise level. Restaurant lacks sound absorption. Customer did not feel valued. Will only recommend as a result of a favorable past experience, not this one.
While in Ft Lauderdale this is still one of my favorite restaurants
I wish it were more crowded
It surpasses for excellence the others with similar menus
Very nice restaurant. Came for Pre Theatre. Great and prompt service, excellent food and wonderful atmosphere.
Great local dining for those folks who work, live and play downtown! Service was wonderful!
It was good
Food was great and the service was even better. Highly recommend this place!!
Mussels are great!
We have been eating here for years. Wednesday must have been an off night. Poor service, entrees being placed upon the dirty appetizer dishes and the food came room temperature.
We will take a break and come back after season to see if it comes back to our expectations.
Overall great experience! I’ve been to several Tavistock restaurants in Boston and was so impressed with the food and service at Timpano in Fort Lauderdale. The mussels were to die for and the portion of the cioppino was perfect. We left feeling full but not overstuffed. Will be back again!
10 people, had 7:30 reservations around 10:00 the food came for some.
We ordered appetizers the hot appetizers came in a reasonable time, the salad appetizers about 1 hour later, 3 meals one never came, 2 where all screwed up and sent back , by 10:00 they never ate, people started sharing there meals.
Not one manager showed up.
Please post this.
Timpano never disappoints us.
The food,service & the attentive staff were great as usual.We never have had a bad meal or bad experience here.
Always a great meal. Impeccable service
Nice restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. We chose outdoor seating. The service was excellent.....attending, but not intrusive. We both ordered the salmon dish. It was a bit disappointing. I had salmon earlier in the week that was prepared much more tasty.
This was my second time dining at the restaurant and I must say I was a little disappointed about my short rib entree that I ordered. The meat was a bit overcooked but the risotto it came with was creamy and delicious.
I’m definitely going to come back because they have a lot of options that I’m sure will improve their ratings from me in the future and the ambiance was very nice.
Eggplant parmigiana and chicken parmigiana had way too much breading on them. The osso bucco was so tender!
The live music was absolutely fabulous - his voice was soothing, calming and worth the trip just to hear him!
Amazing happy hour deals for drinks and apps! Love Timpano
Excellent food and service. Great HAPPY Hour.
Timpano never disappoints. Consistently great service and food. I always make a stop here when I'm visiting Miami Beach. The spicy meatballs are the best!!
Tom the waiter is the best.
We had an issue with our meal and the manager, Joe, was very responsive and gracious. We have lunch at Timpano’s regularly and their focus on making sure the customer has a good experience is greatly appreciated.
Don't overlook the great bar service.
We were a party of six that came in last minute and the restaurant couldn't have been more accommodating. Great drinks, great food
Service and food was excellent will definitely recommend it.
Wonderful evening! Excellent service and food! Came to show my daughter and her fiancé the restaurant we love and have chosen for their reception next week. They loved it! Billy was so welcoming and generous, made us all feel like family. Our server GABY, as well. So helpful, personable, everyone we met in the staff seemed to go the extra mile.
So glad we chose Timpano! It’s been one of our top favorites for 8 or 9 years. Now it’s #1 favorite!
Thank you all!!!
Always very good
Poor menu options for an event
There should’ve been a bit more variety.
I had the waygu beef appetizer which came on a bed of tortilla chips of some sort. This was disappointing and flavorless. My girlfriend ordered the salad which we sent back because they didn’t even have enough ingredients on the plate to call it a salad so she switched it to the sausage ravioli which i must admit had a delicious sauce. As far as the entree, I again went with the waygu beef steak... and that was all there was to it. Just the steak. No sides.. no potatoes, vegetables, rice.. nothing. Just the meat. What type of entree is that? The meat was delicious but it should have been served with something on the side. My girlfriend had a different steak which was good as well however hers was served with whipped potatoes, which in my opinion makes the meal complete. As far as dessert, my girlfriend had the pumpkin cake and i had the lemon. Both were nothing to be excited about or salivate over. We took a few bites and preferred to go somewhere else for dessert. Overall, it was a beautiful ambiance, it was nicely decorated, and they had a lounge singer that night as well which did well. The floor at the restaurant is extremely slippery. I saw several women nearly slip and one woman fell while dancing with her husband. Again, overall it was nice but the food wasn’t worth the price. Not sure i would go back.
As always food was great, service with Mark, our waiter was outstanding and GM Joe was the consumate host
We got a last minute New Year’s Eve dinner reservation. There were 3-4 appetizer/entree/dessert choices. All were wonderful, fortunately between the 3 of us we tried almost everything. Every meal was perfection. The service was also top notch and the ambiance was relaxing and quiet. It will be a New Year’s to remember thanks to Timpano’s Italian Chophouse.
Terrible welcome by the two young ladies at reception. Rude, impolite. Our server never gave a single smile and was all business creating a cold customer/server relationship.
The food was pretty good but as I hate bad service, We won’t probably go back.
They were out of alot of dishes. Said they were busy night before. Food was average/good. Nice waiter. Feels stale ambiance.
Very friendly wait staff at bar area. Ate at bar and really enjoyed the food!
Timpano was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. So glad we went. Loved the bar and the food was outstanding. Our waiter was great.
This was our first time at Timpano's, there were four of us. We arrived a little early, but it was not an issue and we were seated right away. Our waiter was efficient and knowledgable about the menu and the wines. All our plates came out as ordered and the flavor was very good. From a NY Strip to Oso Bucco to Lobster Ravoliis, our dinner was perfect. We came down on the Brightline from WPB, then an Uber to the restaurant, super easy! We had a little time after dinner before heading back to WPB so we enjoyed the music in the lounge that was also very good and enjoyable - several age groups were in the lounge and everyone was having fun. When we go back we will ask to sit in the lounge, if the noise level gets loud it might as well be because of music and laughter! There is plenty of rooms for tables and at the bar. Taking an Uber and the Brightline to and from was super fun and easy. It opens up all-new experiences and places to go to. No doubt we will include Timpano's on one of those trips!
Family holiday celebration dinner. Great ambiance, noise level quiet enough for conversation across our table, service impeccable & food was delicious! Large portions. Very pleased overall!
Christmas Dinner. First time there, Tom our server was great and food was real good. Would definitely go back.
Our first time there. The food was fabulous and we had excellent service. Can’t wait to go back!
The food and atmosphere are exceptional. The service was terrible. We waited for over 20 minutes and kept trying to get someone to pay attention to us. When she finally came over she was rude and rushing us to order only to sit and wait again. Good service is a big part of the dining experience and had the food not been so delicious the evening would have been awful
Another great meal. Also outstanding.
