The setting is pleasant with outside seating overlooking the beach. Just a shame there is a road in between. The food is good but not exceptional. The calamari were over breaded, the cavatelli pasta with veal osso buco was slightly overdone - probably waited at the pass too long. However the blank ink squid pasta was very good. Service was...

Located downstairs, you have indoor and outdoor seating and just a beautiful atmosphere to enjoy a drink. Let the kids order room service and slip downstairs for some quiet couple time. And the staff is wonderful.

Beachfront patio as well as lovely décor inside made this place feel very special. Service and food were excellent. Even if you are not staying at the Ritz, this restaurant is an oasis of calm and elegance in an otherwise bustling and touristy area. Loved it!

Wow just wow. Decided to stop in here for lunch one afternoon and we are so glad we did! Had the lobster sandwich, which was beyond delicious. Lobster was served cold in a presentation similar to a chicken salad (but a 1000x's better) in between two pieces of toasted bread. Probably one of the 20 best things I've consumed in... More

Have eaten here several times across several trips recently. Delightful space that is both indoor and outdoor with the outdoor somewhat elevated from the sidewalk level with the beach directly across the street. Excellent people watching. The food was very good - not your all time best, but very good.

Great food, Outstanding Service. Check out the mural painting behind the bar. See if you can pick out Neptune and his three Horses. It's kinda cool to see.

This is located in the Ritz Carlton Fort Lauderdale. Everyone from the Bartender to the server were very pleasant and accommodating. After cocktails at the bar and learning about the very large mural above the bar, we decided to dine outside and watch the light show from the impending storm. Every course was better than the next. The snapper was... More
