We said it was a birthday celebration twice and no acknowledgement. Very disappointed since we are moving to Ft. Lauderdale and would have gone back. And we had two children with us who expected some fun for their birthdays. We were handed the check before I even had a chance to ask why no celebration.

Well, we're getting closer to 5 stars. Again, the mussels are the best reason to go here. I'm still amazed that they refuse to make designated no smoking and smoking sections outside. It's 2018, in some states smoking is prohibited everywhere, but apparently here they like to mix us up. The hostess seated us where she said guests were not smoking and if anyone smokers showed up, she'd seat them away from us. That almost sounds like a no smoking section, but we had to explain our situation in order to acheive this. Lol. Just separate the two and make it easy for guests. I kind of felt uncomfortable trying to explain this to the hostess, like I was the problem. I'm just not going to risk having a $120 dinner ruined by smoke blowing in my face. Clearly news travels fast bc we were given a free dessert at the end of the meal. Thanks guys.

The food was outstanding. I really enjoyed the decor. But the music was too loud to enable conversation in a normal tone, and the dining room service was not prompt. Service at the bar was outstanding. The bartender Nicole did an excellent job with prompt service and expertly crafted my martini. The experience could be greatly improved by lowering the volume of the music a bit.

Food was very savory and delicious, beautifully crafted and presented. Service was phenomenal. Loved the ambiance, prices were not too expensive for the quality of food that you get. I would definitely return. We had the deconstructed bruschetta, mussels skillet, brussel sprouts, black grouper special... all of which were amazing! My husband definitely enjoyed his birthday dinner!

The management at Timpano's was impressive. We had friends from out of town and after viewing the menu selection they want to eat at Timpano's. My husband and I had yet to try it and we agreed - let's go. Service was average in the beginning, but what impressed me was there management. We waited quite a bit for our food to be served and it was a Tuesday night so I asked for a manager. They explained that they were trying a new software for orders and they had 2 large groups, an apology was given. Well still no food and when we brought it to their attention the manager commented, the kitchen was backed up more than he thought and they would comp our meal. Wow - comp the meal..now that's impressive! My husband and I live in walking distance and we'll certainly return. Not because of a free meal. simply because the food was fabulous and while we waited quite a bit - there was no hesitation from Timpano's to make it right. There are several restaurants to chose on Las Olas and their Osso Bucco and pan seared Veal Piccata...delicious

The chopped salad was good. I had the special of the day, Ciopino, it had a generous pasta but very poor in seafood. I know at least two other restaurants in Fort Lauderdale who have the same dish but loaded with seafood and at half the Timpano price. My wife had the Veal and wild mushroom Rigatoni and it was downright bad. The meat had an unappetizing smell and it was shredded. We did not bother with the dessert or coffee, just paid quickly and walked out.
I must say the waiter was good, he sent the manager over but we had no patience to wait for another dish, my wife lost her appetite anyway.

The food was the usual great food. the waiter could not have been worse. He continually tried to rush us, clear food and drinks before we were ready and other than trying to rush us, he was not present. He got both orders wrong and never even came to check on our meals when the server delivered them. Overall a place to avoid, unless you do not care about the service, or it youo want really fast food.

We absolutely love the roasted mussels. We get them every time we eat at Timpano's.\ because they're better than any mussels we have eaten anywhere. We also had calamari which were lightly battered and fried in such a way that they were not greasy. Timpano's has a nice wine list, too. We go for appetizers and drinks or dinner and it's always excellent.

It started with the hostess, who wasn’t there when we walked in, showed up after five minutes, and just looked at us like “what do you want?” No greeting and no apology for making us wait. Service was slow and unfriendly, and while the food was okay, one of our steaks had the funk and we returned it for a replacement dish (getting a new steak would have taken too long). Overall it was a forgettable experience and made us wish we had chosen one of a hundred other options in Fort Lauderdale on our visit. For $250 for four people, I would expect great service and a great meal, not people being dismissive and having to send food back to the kitchen. The good news is they didn’t charge us for the funky filet or the replacement meal. And the manager came out to apologize. Want to get more stars? Welcome people to your establishment, appreciate their business, make them feel they are welcome and appreciated, and if something is wrong with the food, comp a desert or something to make up for our person having to eat something that tasted like dog food and then being left to eat a dish they didn’t want.

It has a lot of potential, but the restaurant isn't all that it's cracked up to be, which is too bad. Food was mediocre and so is the wine list. The ambiance was nice and our server did try to give good service. Overall it's just an average restaurant.

We met friends that were visiting and staying in a hotel in Fort Lauderdale. This was a convenient location for all 5 of us. The ambiance is nice, and the valet parking is very convenient - you give your cell number when you drop it off and when you are ready you text them and your car is immediately ready when you are. The food was fair, which was unexpected for a restaurant like this. Only one diner loved his food - the scallops were exceptional. We dined fairly early due to a later engagement so the restaurant was not crowded but we felt like the waiter was trying to hurry us to turn the table over, continually coming to ask us what our next order was, we told him we order the appetizers and then order the entrees after we eat the appetizers but he appeared as soon as the appetizers were delivered wanting the entree orders. There are many great restaurants in the area so we will not be going back to this one which was just OK.

This restaurant has changed - but not for the better. We were celebrating two birthdays and asked for a booth. We have been to the restaurant often and thought it would be no problem. Instead we were seated at a table in the back room with a view of a monitor hawking their meeting space. Really tasteless. The same goes for the food. Sloppy dishes made with less than quality ingredients delivered by surly bus boys. This was definitely our final visit to this poorly managed, past it’s prime restaurant.

I had not been to Timpano for years even though we live on Las Olas during the season. I was in the mood for a steak and had a college buddy in town for the weekend. The food and service was excellent. We all three had steaks and shared three great sides. Brussel Sprouts prepared differently and were especially good. Nice wine selection too.

There was a live band in the bar but we were in the dinning room so it was not too loud. The scene was vibrant.

I have one pet peeve about swinging doors into a kitchen from the dinning room. I think all doors should be hidden from the customers as they are distracting and interfere with what would otherwise be a great table. We were able to sit facing away from the doors since we were three at a four top.

This was a business dinner with visitors from out of town. Atmosphere, location, and food were great. Service was very poor. Our waitress would leave us for long periods of time, to the point where we had to go find her or another waiter. We were only given 2 plates for a table of 3 and I had to go find a plate on my own. Just very poor service for such a nice restaurant.

The food at Timpano was excellent. We had a party of six and every appetizer, entre and desert selected everyone had great comments about. Unfortunately our server was not very accommodating. She was argumentative about several requests. In addition the hostest at front desk was very rude and unpleasant. When I approached the desk she looked at me and then turned away until I had to repeat excuse several times before getting her attention. If u want great food Timpano’s is a good selection however no one from our party will be going back due to poor service standards that are guess are either promoted or not known to the management.
