I agree with all of the other positive reviews so far. Get there before 5:00 or else you may have to wait for a table. The only negative comment I have is about the cleanliness of the men's restroom. It needed attention.

The scallops are the best in Ft Lauderdale. The walnut chicken is great. The atmosphere is terrific and the service is wonderful

I saw reviews for the baked brie and it was really good . I could have eaten it all myself. I got the fish tacos which were good but pretty dry in my mind which is why this gets 4 stars. I had to add a lot of limes to help that out. Went for lunch time. My husbands fish... More

Our entrees, the seared tuna with seaweed/cucumber salad, and the shrimp scampi with polenta, were truly excellent. The tuna, with a great wasabi sauce, was meaty and the tangy salad and crisp dumplings were perfect accompaniments. The shrimp with polenta was heavenly. Lots of big, perfectly cooked shrimp in a smoky sauce atop creamy polenta. Amazing. Mixed reviews re: appetizers.... More

We walked along the seafront and found this place a mile or so from our hotel. Despite being very busy we got a table quickly and the service was superb. The quality of the food was also excellent and we will be going again before we leave Fort Lauderdale.

My wife and I have seen this restaurant for years but never went. We found ourselves there on a sunny day sitting on the verandah and enjoying a very good meal with an outstanding view. The service was very good and the prices were reasonable. You can park down the street in a lot the restaurant uses (convenient). I would... More

This is a great place for drinks and happy hour appetizers. The view can't be beat and it's a historic home converted to a restaurant. I quit going there when they served my sister Talapia and charged for grouper. Hello! We are native Floridians and cooks! This was pure theft! Unfortunately the fish switch is all too common in south... More

Great food and great service go together well here. Always a good time and a view that is second to none. Just steps from the Ocean. Drinks are a plenty and also very good. Just a fun place. You may have to wait for a bit but well worth it!

One of my favorite places to take guests from out of town or for lunch and/or drinks. Sits on the ocean block, festive and fun.
