I traveled to Fort Lauderdale with my family for a week's stay. Since we were staying at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, we planned a private party for our family at Lona for our first night's stay. The evening was absolutely PERFECT! Sales Manager...Leticia Canossa couldn't have been more helpful in assisting in planning our event for 30 family members, while on-site restaurant manager Rodrigo Taboada was incredibly attentive and made himself available for our every need. But the true star was the food -- which was sooo delicious. A private chef served us tacos, empanadas (my favorite), ceviche, and more. The drinks were spot on (read: potent), and the evening was a smashing success. We enjoyed the food so much, we brought the family back a few days later for a group meal in the restaurant. "Richard R" was our server and not only was he very knowledgeable and incredibly patient with a member of our group, but such a hoot. He helped make it a good time. If you're ever a guest at the Westin, Lona is a MUST for dinner and drinks (the smoked salmon eggs benedict for breakfast was also exceptional). However, if you're staying anywhere near the ocean while in Fort Lauderdale, they'll treat you right at Lona. I recommend it highly!More

Nelson was our server for lunch and he did an amazing job taking care...of our table. the food was so good we went back for another night but unfortunately nelson doesn’t work dinner so we got a lady and she did a great job as well! (can’t remember her name) great place and we will be back soon! (picture is carne asada and mojito)More

Unsure of designated handicapped parking, however, the hotel that houses the restaurant has valet parking at a reasonable rate.

They don't have anything listed on their site. You may want to contact the restaurant to see if they have any happy hour specials.
