First time eating at this fine restaurant. Menu filled with many excellent choices, we tried the shrimp, scallop, calamari salad for an appetizer. Delicious. We both ordered specials, veal for my guest and I had the seared Ahi Tuna. Both were exceptional. Plenty of food, cooked to perfection. Topped off the meal with some raspberry sorbet and some scotch and... More

I eat at Bistro Mez pretty often the food is consistently delicious and the service is top notch. They have a nice happy hour menu with a variety of options and also happy hour drink specials. The veal creations are incredible. I always eat in the bar area because I dine solo and can always count on good conversation with... More

We started at the bar with cocktails. Excellent service and very good firecracker shrimp. We went to a table in the bar for dinner. Sesame seared rare tuna was very tasty and the Bolognese pasta was excellent. The happy hour scampi was okay. Table service was also just okay. Overall we enjoyed the experience.

About 5 years ago we dined at the Bistro Mezzaluna in a different location and had some not-so-special mussels. But this time the 4 of us had no complaints. The scallops, the linguine with clams, the shrimp scampi, and their signature pine crusted sea bass were all superb. The arugula salad was fresh and expertly prepared with olive oil and... More

We didn't know anything about this restaurant. We drove in from Tampa and wanted to eat before we checked into the hotel. I pulled up this website and the menu looked good so we decided to try it. The menu has lots of different things from pasta to lobster and some different types of appetizers for a place like this.... More

We discovered this restaurant quite a few years ago & always make a point of dining here whenever we go to Fort Lauderdale. This restaurant is consistently good in all aspects, friendly staff to greet you, waiters who are attentive but not overly so & above all, food that is exceptional. There is an outdoor terrace that is quite nice... More

First meal we've had that has been hot rather than tepid! We sat outside near the fountain as don't get much opportunity at home. Food was very good, service excellent.

We enjoyed our evening at Bistro Mezzaluna, especially the bar area. We went to the lounge to have a cocktail before dinner and stayed there to eat. Food and service were good, the music was great. All around fun night.
