The first few places we try for a late lunch while shopping along Fort Lauderdale’s pretty Las Olas only serve wine and beer, so we pass, until quite by chance we come across this friendly establishment. Chef Johnny Vinczencz has put his name on the door which is as good a recommendation on the quality of the food as I... More

The inside dining area was classy and elegant, but I opted for an outside table by the sidewalk. It was a lovely evening with ideal weather and lots of pedestrian traffic steaming by. The outside seating area was also attractively done, with white tablecloths and candlelight dining. Very romantic. I decided to try a couple of appetizers rather than a... More

Our server Michael transformed our evening at Johnny V into one like I hadn't had in years. He was professional, courteous, polite, but friendly and engaging at every step, as well. Michael and his busboy and cooks and bartender delivered nuanced and beautiful cocktails, well thought out dishes of food impeccably prepared. Flavors were balanced, ingredients of obviously high quality,... More

This restaurants Chef/Patron was described as a "Chef Rock Star" What we got was badly cooked food pretending to be marvellous. The only rock was the density of the squid.

As a tourist, you know when a salad is in order! This place makes a number of creative salads. I had the Romaine salad and it is a home run! For Las Olas it is very reasonable $ ...I dined outside and the staff and people watching are excellent .. My waiter, Rick was sharp and cool. I will be... More

We tripped across this place having no idea that it was already famous ( to say the least). The meal was extraordinary- each entree was an imaginative creation, perfectly prepared from the freshest stock, and visually stunning in each case. We each had a fish entree, but they were distinctly unique. Staffing was very professional. We literally wanted to go... More

Always consistently great food and service. After eating here 4 years in a row on my winter getaway I can't imagine not going here when I'm in Fort Lauderdale. Awesome patio and always great food.
