We came to Fort Lauderdale on vacation and luckily stumbled upon this great restaurant from a recommendation by our concierge. We ended up coming 4 times during our week long stay! The happy hour is great at the bar from 4 to 7 with friendly staff. Allison was our favourite! Both food and drinks were consistently excellent and the live... More

Went for dinner on 5/30.  The table was not cleaned well.  Were not given the menu right away - they don't have enough of them.  Not offered water.  Asked the server for paper napkins - she forgot to bring it.  Ordered two drinks - mojito and drunken golfer.   Drunken golfer - did not even feel a little bit of alcohol. ...

You can't make reservations, but this place came highly recommended to we decided to give it a try. We parked down the street in a public parking lot and paid $5. The wait was less than 15 mins- we had drinks at the bar while we waited. While waiting, we checked out the menu. We were sat at a table... More

Our meal began with the largest shrimp cocktail I've ever seen- coupled with two sauces that were Devine! We split a chopped Greek salad and sea bass and both were spectacular- this cozy romantic restaurant overlooks the ocean and the lighting and balcony seating made it one of my favorite restaurants-

On a recommendation from our hotel bartender, decided to give this place a try... Warm greeting. No wait (even on a Friday) Warm ocean breeze even inside the dining room...nice :D From the cocktail order to the farewells, Kyle (our waiter) made the night magical. Sublime crab cakes, seared ahi tuna, morroccan kabobs, filet mignon... All spectacular. But what made... More

Pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant on busy Atlantic Drive. The bread and pesto dip was delicious. We had the walnut chichen and beef kabobs. Very unique flavors. There is a lot to park close by for $5. Don't miss it.

Casablanca Café is an old house from the early 20th century which has been turned into a restaurant. All the other homes which long ago stood here have been torn down to make room for development. So the last remaining house is very special. The view of the ocean is spectacular. Food is pretty good. Service is hit or miss.... More

We had a delightful dinner outside on the terrace. The service was great and we loved the seafood. This was a great place to have a good meal and watch all the beach activity.

Had a wonderful dinner with friends the other evening. Always a place I want to eat at while visiting Ft Lauderdale. So relaxing and a great view of the beach that makes it so peaceful. Great food and wonderful attentive staff.
