We went to the restaurant over the 4th of July weekend for a 30th birthday dinner. We were a party of nine including a baby and I have to say that we had fantastic service. The wait staff was excellent, and they even dealt well with our gluten free diner and finding out what exactly she could eat on the... More

The service was excellent, the food was fine but a little pricey for our family of 13. The coconut shrimp was excellent and my daughter said she had the best crab cakes she had ever eaten. The atmosphere on the waterway makes it special. We were able to walk here from our hotel and that was a big plus!

We were only in Fort Lauderdale for a few hours but made sure to go back to this restaurant. We went for lunch but at dinner time the ambiance is even better. It is directly on the Intercoastal so boats can dock right there. The food and especially the service is fantastic and I highly recommend this restaurant.

Came here for dinner after reading the great reviews and was disappointed. While the view was very pretty, the food was average at best. Wasn't super blown away by anything we ate and felt like we paid way too much for what we got. $17 for an appetizer is a bit much. White wine was room temperature but very generously... More

I have eaten here a number of times and the food is always good. On this visit, I had the stone crabs as they were in season. They were so good, I ordered a second platter!

Fantastic food, great location and very helpful staff, what more do you want! Complementary valet parking, which is needed cause the parking is quite small.

This place was fantastic! Food was great - I had fish tacos and my husband had Mahi Mahi, everything was seasoned and cooked to perfection. He said it was easily one of the best meals he's had. My only wish for the tacos was that there was some kind of sauce to go along with them, or maybe a salsa... More

I kept saying, "That's the best [fill in the blank]." The scroobies were amazing, and it was the best coconut shrimp I've ever had. But the cheesecake. Oh, the cheesecake! Vanilla bean, raspberry sauce, coconut and homemade crust. Quite possibly the best I've ever had. We also had great friendly service from every host and server. If I'm back in... More

Ate here last week for lunch. We were seated out side under the foggers. It was a hot day and the foggers were working well. However after an hour of sitting there I left completely moist. Thought I had been in a fog bank in New England. With that said the food was good. I had the Caesar with chicken... More

We really enjoyed our meal taken at the Coconuts on our way to Hollywood by Water Taxi. The restaurant had been recommended by our host of the 15 FTL hotel. The site is wonderful just next to the ocean. I hope that I will able to eat again soon.
