This restaurant is totally outdoors. The food is good and it is so good to sit outside eating good food, nice wait staff, and gentle warm breezes. We will go back.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at the The Plaza Bistro. It was a short walk from our hotel, so we gave it a try. Service was excellent, we enjoyed sitting outside, and the food was quite good. The serving staff was very accommodating of our two year old grandson. They have a decent selection of wine and... More

The Plaza Bistro is a great and very different experience. It was hard to tell it's a restaurant, at first; we arrived in the late afternoon and it looked like a parking lot with a lot of outdoor furniture. But as the sun went down, the lights of the bistro completely transformed the place. It felt romantic, and kind of... More

Food-truck chic! Basically, they took a parking lot, put a food truck in it, and dressed it up with nice plants, tables, etc. It' actually quite nice, and the food is great. There's just no indoor seating if that's what you want. The food is great. You'd never know this was a food truck if you didn't see it on... More

When the weather is right for outdoor dining, The Plaza Bistro is ideal. We were there on a quiet weeknight, in the heat of August, but a light breeze off the ocean and a couple of strategically placed fans kept us comfortable and delighted with our choice of restaurants. A wonderful alternative to the predictable hotel restaurants nearby. As the... More

Once again, the entire staff at The Plaza Bistro made for an amazing night under the stars!. The breeze on this August night was so pleasant as we sat with soft lights,under the pergola enjoying the company of friends. We had cocktails,wine, appetizers and fantastic entrées. Orlando, Juan and our very professional waiter Franz made our evening so special. I... More

We ended up eating at this restaurant 3 times during our stay in Ft. Lauderdale. The food is great, so are the prices and the staff very friendly. The outside surroundings makes up the perfect atmosphere for a great dinner experience. The best restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale after my opinion.

The Plaza Bistro represents a unique dining experience. My partner and I were here on a sticky hot summer evening. To me, that was the one major flaw. The lack of any indoor dining options left us vulnerable to the elements....Heat, Humidity, Wind blowing things off your table, and Mosquitos! Otherwise, the experience was most pleasant. Wine selection was nice... More

My family of four decided to try this place on a holiday weekend hoping it wouldn't be too overcrowded. Much to our surprise, we had no problem getting a table (which worried us a little at first). The atmosphere was great, all outdoor dining but had fans to keep cool. The wait staff was prompt and courteous and the food... More

As locals we've eaten here before without major issues. This last time over the holiday weekend was a nightmare we won't be returning to. Place was not packed which is strange for 7:00 on a Friday evening. Tables sticky and strangely arranged. Water tasted like lead. Oddly the GM took our order but never returned? Ordered guacamole and chips; took... More
