Everything great except for main course, a daily fish special with a fish from Hawaii. Should have stuck to the appealing-sounding local fish options. Management was nice enough to remove from our bill. We filled up with some more of their excellent (west coast) oysters. Would try again the next time we’re in town.

Warm oysters then long wait for room temperature tuna. Seemed to have been seared then sat a while. Spicy broccolini and shiitake mushrooms was good and appropriately warm. Crab cake was really good. Espresso crème brûlée was odd. Service was good. Dining room more than half empty on a mid December Thursday at 8 pm

When we first arrived there was a private party wrapping up. There was some confusion about where we were sitting but once seated our dinner and service was very good. My mojito was excellent and my fiancé’s martini was good. Our waitress Kristen was very attentive. I enjoyed my dinner. I would probably return again.

I hosted a small business dinner here on Wednesday December 5th. The service was great. The food was simply phenomenal! we split apps. crab cakes, ahi tuna tacos and buffalo mozzarella. All wonderful!! My filet steak could not have been cooked more perfect! I would definitely recommend this location to anyone looking to treat themselves to an exquisite meal.

The food as usual was very good. I had the grilled octopus as an appetizer and was very good. Then ordered for my main course the crab cakes. When they served I received the appetizer size instead the main course that supposed to be 2 crab cakes. Sometimes you need to ask the right questions so you know what you will get.

Me and my plus one really enjoyed ourselves. We quickly got an order of a dozen oysters and a round of drinks off their happy hour before it ended. Thank you bartenders for coming in clutch. I NEVER eat oysters. She reassured me these were some of the best she’s ever had. I tried them and they were out of hand good. Sat at a table for our entrees. We ordered salmon with an extra side of Peruvian Mash Potatoes definitely worth the price. She got the Monk Fish. Couldn’t believe how incredible it tasted. Overall 10/10. They had a Saxophone musician playing all the hits live!

What should have been a good experience was ruined by poor service. Perhaps this was one of the most embarissing business meals I have hosted.

We have been here often and always been pleased with both the quality of the food and the service.

From inattention to rushing the check out they couldn't have made it a worse experience. I sent the check back twice, first because we wanted to order dessert and secondly when we wanted coffee. This was just the culmination of a dinner when the service was sorely lacking. I've been to Diners with more professionalism.

We had tickets to Broward Center on a Saturday night and stopped here for Oysters and seafood. Great food, interesting prep and great selection. The drinks at the bar were great too. Extra points for the live music both in the restaurant and at the hotel that the restaurant is in. Great place.

This was my third experience w the restaurant and was completely different from the prior two. Food was awful (grilled octopus over cooked and crab cake lacked any crab; it was all filler). We ate at the bar. The service was poor. Bartender left the restaurant to go outside and talk w the hostess, leaving us alone for 20+ minutes. But the worst part of the experience was the live “singer”. Her voice was so bad it was literally a distraction. We left without finishing our meal and went up the street for another drink (and some peace and quiet). I will not be returning any time soon.

We get there early and had oysters from the happy hour - they were great. My wife ordered the special which was a steak and it was awful - she asked for some salt - never a good sign and it never came. Finally she complained about the meal and they were very good about taking it off the bill but it was a pretty disappointing experience. We will probably not go back. The waitress was terrific and so was management but the food was just average at best.

Crusted chicken was served with a mushroom mix with a soy and ginger sauce which was very acid and salty I did not bare to eat more of the mushrooms after 2 bites.
When I mentioned it to the server it felt like my comment fell into a black hole !!!
The other person had snapper and she said it was good.
I have been there 3 times and it was great the first 2 but after this episode I am not going back! My meal was ordinary and nothing was done to remedy the situation !

My wife and I were spending the weekend in Ft Lauderdale and had dinner for the first time. We were greeted warmly and served delicious Sangria with bread. The waiter staff explained the menu and the food was spectacular. Sitting outside near a big table so it was a bit noisy but overall a fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend and will be coming back again in November when we visit Ft Lauderdale again

My son ordered steak, medium well. Came back medium rare; sent it back, came back exactly the same but cold; sent back a third time, brought him a brand new steak more rare than the first; at this point I asked them to cook it well done to insure it would be cooked, third time a charm; did not charge us for steak, and took 20% off more from the bill; oysters were very good; halibut special was good but bland; overall, not the greatest dining experience! Nevertheless they were very accommodating and took responsibility for the mishaps! Would try them again, I think it was just a bad night!
