Went for lunch and our first impression was that the whole restaurant smelled like a mildewed rag. Had the lobster roll sandwich, it was good, but only had about 2 - 3 ounces of lobster in it. Our server told me when I ordered it that it was a smaller portion but for $20.00!!!!! It came with sweet potato fries... More

Starter- Lobster Bisque was absolutely amazing. It had large tender chunks of lobster meat. I am not a big seafood eater but do enjoy trying Lobster Bisque when I can. I never knew lobster shouldn’t be chewy until I ate here. Main Dish- We ordered the Surf and Turf and shared it. The portions are large. I only ate the... More

We went to this restaurant after our friends kept on raving about it. I can now see what all the fuss is about. The food is unbelievable and extremely fresh. My boyfriend is not the biggest fan of seafood, but for some reason he loved it at this restaurant. The atmosphere is also very classy and having dinner at this... More

What a pleasure to be waited upon by experienced staff who know exactly how to serve their customers well. A little on the pricey side for food but no complaints about any of the dishes...the Lobster Bisque was wonderful. Generous portions and extensive wine menu.

We have had very gracious service every time we've had dinner here. Waiters are friendly and helpful, eager to please without being overbearing and they know not to barge into conversations, which for some reason is rare in Fort Lauderdale restaurants. Even though Mezzaluna really is geared toward meat lovers, I'm a vegetarian and have been able to find filling... More

First impressions - a nice restaurant that caters to the sophisticated! Once inside, it was a little dark (considering it was not dark outside yet), but still a pleasant ambiance nonetheless. To compensate for the dark atmosphere, the presented menus light up so that you are able to see it. Thoughtful choice, but did the lighted menus come about as... More
