Didn’t honor reservation made earlier and that was on their books. Waited over an hour, After repeatedly asking when we would be seated, we left after an hour and 30 minutes. I am assuming that this restaurant discriminates against certain people eating there.

Good food, very poor service 🤔
Took my family for a nice dinner on the 31st
The place was not full, yet people were in line waiting to be seated. Very poor coordination. Only one waiter in my area trying to handle 20 tables, NOT GOOD.
The food was good.

Great dinner. Sharon, our Server was very good and the food perfect

Try the Baked Oysters and the New England Clams Casino. I had the Crusted Grouper and it was a wonderful blend of flavors served over rice.

Paula has the crusted Sea Bass .... crushes with Panko soaked in Squid Ink - delicious.

For dessert you HAVE to have the Key Lime Cookie; it not anything you’d ever imagine and it too, was fantastic

We decided to come here for NYE as we came last year. This year was not as good. We arrived after booking on OpenTable and they had no record of our reservation, then tried to sit us in the bar at a high top. We declined, the host was a little rude about it and they finally sat us at a table. The server was the pits, we ordered bottled water and she refilled our sparkling water glasses with tap water. The lobster was overly dried out and no manager or anyone came to apologize for it. Next year we will go someplace else.

The service was just terrible! The advertised a $19 buffet but tried to charge me $49. At first the waiter insisted that the price was correct. The drinks too forever to arrive- I had to ask 3 people before a waiter finally arrived. Over priced and disappointing experience.

The food was okay, no more no less. The service was stressful, the waitress cleaned off the table before everyone finished eating. To illustrate the stress: we ate a $350 three course dinner in one hour, which is surreal considering it was our Christmas Eve dinner at a "nice" restaurant. Also, the ingredients of the meal didn't correspond with the menu and the food (grilled lobster) went cold while waiting for what”s missing...

If you're looking for lobster try another restaurant. The 1 1/2 lb lobster risotto amounted to about 9 oz's or less. The tail had the texture of bubble gum. A two shrimp cocktail (at $5 per shrimp) was returned after one bite of its mushy consistency. At least it was deducted from the bill. The beef filet was good. The service was good. The price was out of sight. Will not be going back. If all you want is a cocktail the price and the drinks are acceptable at happy hour.

Service was very uneven. No hostess to greet us. We were told to pick a table & be seated without being notified that our guest were already here at bar. Waited 15 minutes for rest of party eventually calling them to find out they were in next room.It was ridiculous.
Restaurant not busy but service was slow. Waiter seemed in experienced & tentative. Should have been more informative as to sides needed to complete platter.
It was a very disappointing evening at a restaurant we had enjoyed many times before.

We have dined at Wild Sea Oyster Bar in the past and always had a great meal. This time we partook of the Thanksgiving Buffet. It was fantastic. There was a great selection of carved meats, traditional side dishes, salads, raw bar and (of course) dessert.

The management of this Las Olas restaurant needs to learn a lot about customer service. When I made reservations for Thanksgiving day, I was told our party of five could order from the regular menu. Their special that day was a Thanksgiving Buffet at $49 a person.
When we arrived and seated, I was told we couldn’t order from the regular menu. To have a non Thanksgiving Meal, we would have to move around 50 feet away to their sister restaurant, same management, same ownership. We are seniors and having settled in to one table.... we were asked to move to another table!!!! Not very good customer service.
That done, we were blessed with a lovely server!!
The Riverside Hotel needs to be aware of the non accommodating issues of restaurants that are housed in their hotel.

We made reservations for an anniversary dinner. Everything was top-notch. The service was impeccable and dinner was delicious. If you like octopus, I highly recommend it. I will definitely go back if we are in Ft. Lauderdale once again.

After waiting 45 minutes the waiter brings out our main course. Only problem is we ordered starters. Instead of bringing the food back he offered us free deserts to solve his problem. Manager never came by to ask or find out what was gong on. Service was very bad. Restaurant was quiet for a Saturday so we should have known. Very disappointing

Having looked forward to the reservation made almost 2 months prior, it is unfortunate that the restaurant allows cellphone use, particularly on speaker, in the dining room.

People should be encouraged to go out in the hall or outside if they must talk on their cells during their meals.
So inconsiderate for this person to disturb the otherwise lovely ambiance. And the management, although asked, did really nothing to curtail the disturbance.

The Jazz player on the other hand was wonderful-- not too loud-- and the musician was quite accomplished. And Natasha our waitress was great.

Our server, Tami of Japanese decent, was excellent! Everything we orderedeas prepared and present beautifully. From the selection of oysters (east coast and west coast), to the top neck clams and grilled octopus, the food was fresh and the appetizers tasted great! We tried the monk fish, grouper and the branzino and the combination of flavors melted in your mouth. Chef Toby and his culinary team are a must visit when you are in the Fort Lauderdale area.

I live in this area and can’t believe I didn’t know about this hidden gem. We found this place because we were craving oysters. Greeted by Salomon with a welcoming smile. The seafood was fresh and delicious. The raw bar tasting appetizer was plentiful and tasty. We enjoyed an extra half dozen of the east coast oysters. We ended up sharing an Ahi Tuni loin with broccolini and shiitake mushrooms which were to die for. And can’t forget to mention the flavorful side dish of sweet corn and bacon. Adestin was an awesome server and was on point with his recommendations. Were very happy we came here and will definitely come back.
