“Suft and turf under the stars!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Unexpected excellent meal. Orlando, the general manager suggested one of the special combinations for the evening which was the surf and turf. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and the jumbo shrimp were seasoned nicely, the creamy mash potatoes and the broccolini were scrumptious. Coupled with a nice bottle of riesling wine and desserts that were to die for, white salt caramel cake and key lime pie with mango sorbet. Olimar, our server rounded out the evening with her witty personality and contiguous smile. I would highly recommend The Plaza Bistro for a fantastic meal under the stars.

We had a wonderful delicious breakfast. Service was attentive. What we enjoyed MOST was the alfresco dining.. the warm breezes.. and being within walking distance of our resort, the Grand Palm Plaza

“Unique concept and good value for the money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for a good wine list or a good craft beer this is not your place. Cocktails are good but take awhile to arrive. Service overall is friendly but a bit uneven. The skirt steak was good but lacked proper seasoning. The calamari and summer salad are good choices for starters. The covered dinning area is small, recommend that you arrive early.

“Great find in North Fort Lauderdale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Great little restaurant tucked off the main drag. Friendly staff, unique concept with outdoor seating that changes with the day and the weather. Italian selections for dinner are excellent with the lasagna particularly recommended. The general manager Orlando went out of his way to introduce himself and spend time with us. They serve breakfast too. The outdoor ambience in the morning was excellent and service was good, although the food at breakfast not quite up to snuff compared to the dinner menu. Overall a gem and highly recommended for a fun and unique fining experience.
