Let's face it, ocean drive eateries whether in Miami or Ft. Lauderdale are generally disappointing affairs, not so with H2O. I've been here three or four times now and in each instance I have been impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. If you're looking for a nice meal with a view of the cheesy ambience that is... More

Our apologies for not posting this review before now but due to a close family bereavement certain reviews were overlooked. We very much enjoyed lunch at this restaurant and sat outside. It is great for people watching as they are either coming to or from the beach and or walking up and down the sidewalk. Parking is easy nearby and... More

We ate here with the family. Lots of outdoor seating, but a bit on the $$$ side. Inside is very nice, and we should have sat in there. It have a nice bar, and a coffee place next door. My food was okay. Not bad, but not spectacular either. Service was a tad slow. I didn't think the value was... More

Beautiful surroundings in which to enjoy breakfast. Lots of shade outside to sit and enjoy the view of the ocean. The egg sandwich is delicious and plenty to eat. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Wished we could have lingered a little longer.

My husband and I went for breakfast. I had the South Beach omelette which came with fruit, and he had the blueberry pancakes with scrambled eggs. Food was okay. Not out of this world but decent for the price. It was convenient, and the service by Dan was good. Would try it again.

Server came back with the bill and ask for more tip. We ask for the manager and the manager backed him up. Stay away!

Came here for dinner one night. Waiter was very attentive, and the atmosphere was great for people watching. Had the pasta e fagioli soup which was delicious. Lots of beans and very filling. Also had the chicken campagnola as an entrée and could only finish half of it. This too was very good. Had I known how good, I probably... More

My wife and I spent six days in Fort Lauderdale and H2O was, by far, the best restaurant where we dined! The location on Beach Blvd. was fantastic. We both ordered the fresh lobster and enjoyed the meal immensely! The lobster was great! It also came with nice vegetables and potatoes which were much superior to what another restaurant that...

We dined here for lunch on a Sunday and really enjoyed sitting outside, people and ocean watching. They could use a fan under their tent though, as air movement was very limited. Our biggest issue was the amount of time it took to get our food! We ordered the guac appetizer, which was fabulous, but took a good 20 minutes... More
