“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner and were very impressed. They have a good cocktail selection. I had the snapper for my entree and it was delicious. My husband had the NY strip which was a decomposed cheese steak, sounds strange, but it was excellent! Great service and and all around great dinner.

“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

My wife and I have been coming here for years after having had this restaurant recommended to us by AMEX. It doesn't matter what time of the year we go, the quality of the food and service is always excellent.

We have yet to try a dish that we have not liked here, however we do have some favorites. In particular, the cheese tasting dish (triple cream!) with the spicy pecans is simple, yet perfect to pair with a nice bottle of red wine. For appetizers we enjoy the "bacon, eggs, & toast" the best, however you can't go wrong with any of the selections - of which we have tried them all.

The entrees change from time to time, but try the mahi mahi with the plantain stuffing and lobster gravy....some of the best flavor combinations you're going to have anywhere.

Food was outstanding. Make sure you sit outside on the front patio, great ambiance in the nighttime.

“good food, semi private dining area for group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I took a group of about 12 clients here for dinner. They do not have a private room but a semi private area in the back. The food was good. The group menu was slightly limited (only 1 choice of kind of salad, 1 dessert) etc. The location is great if you have people who haven't been to Ft Lauderdale before.

There literally is nothing to dislike about this place!! Wonderful food, great serving staff and great location. Just watching everyone 'cruise' by is all the entertainment you will ever need.
