My husband and I had dinner at H20 on a Thursday evening and watched the world go by on the beach. The nice thing about the location is that they have outdoor seating close enough to people watch but far enough away from the louder bar/restaurants that you can hear yourself think and enjoy a conversation. The prices were pretty... More

H20 was a surprise find as we were on the way to another restaurant when we saw it. The food was good and our server Richie was very knowledgeable about the menu and friendly, for a guy from philly. The lobster fra diablo was great and the bread pudding was good also.

The service was slow, but the food was good. The portions were large enough to share easily. Bar prices a little spendy. Good location. Dine inside or out.

The service was bad and slow. The manager admitted there was a mistake on there be half, that caused us to wait a hour for are food,but the only thing he could do was give me a free beer. Then when the food came the shrimp was dry. The prime rib was over cooked, and the side were not correct.... More

Recommended by a friend, we stopped by for breakfast on July 2nd 2016 just before 11am. The outside was not that busy but we were greeted straight away & sat at a nice table shaded by an umbrella but with prime people watching of A1A & the beach. Drinks - It was my birthday so I was in a pretty... More

Where to begin? Looking for something to eat on our second night in Ft. Lauderdale and we passed by this restaurant. I ordered the prime rib special and he ordered the duck. Both entrees, and the accompanying sides (especially the mashed potatoes) were excellent! Our server was very knowledgeable and personable and helped us select meals based on our preferences....

We ate there on July 4. Service was very slow and we were in a hurry to see fireworks. Waitress kept apologizing but our experience was not good. We happen to eat there the night before and service was great. The lobster special was a great deal for $19.95 and the sides that come with it are great.

The portions were incredible for dinner and the specials were a great price. The bartender made great drinks for us. Just how we like them. We sat at the bar, which was very nice and clean. Bartender was so friendly. Can't wait to go back to Ft. Lauderdale and have dinner here again.

Came here for breakfast and the view was amazing since it's right across from the beach. The food is good too. I had the French toast.
