Went recently on a family dinner. The vibe was laid back, with a 1920's "speakeasy" theme to the decor, and drinks on the menu were prohibition favorites (see menu image). The restaurant had both indoor and outdoor seating (set up in a portion of the...parking lot, to allow for extra patrons as per phase 2 restrictions) The food was tasty and portions were generous. They happily accommodated a member of our party with dietary restrictions. Pricing was fair. The evening we went there, they had live music outside, which was fantastic. After we had finished, we hung around for a while longer just to enjoy the show; it was that good. To my understanding, they have live music most nights. Highly recommended restaurant.More

Oh what a fun night! Tried with with friends while visiting the area! So glad we did! Rick and Victor were the entertainment for the evening and boy did they entertain! Requests from the patrons, with the exception of a few! Sang for 2.5 hours...no break! Laughed, sang along and throughly enjoyed ourselves. Oh yes the food was good too! At the end of the night,Steven, the owner passed out free after dinner shots!More

This was our first time we dined at Gatsy's Joint. Fun menu to share variety of snacks, salads, vegetable appetizers, and small, medium and large plates. We totally enjoyed the Giant Meatball, Brussel Sprouts in Kimchi Sauce, Caviar Tasting, Roasted Head of Cauliflower, and Korean...BBQ Baby Back Ribs. Look forward to trying other items on the menu. The entertainment was so much fun, Piano Bar Saturday's with Rick & Mailyn. Very accomplished musician and singer, with comedic twists. They took requests all night and had everyone singing and and laughing throughout the show. Hardly took a break. Definitely an evening to remember and want to recreate with other friends.More

Gatsby’s Joint is a small place with big impact. DJ Cat Shell was spinning her sexy beats on my first trip, and on another visit I attended a Burlesque Show right out of an old speakeasy. Master Mixologist Ali and a great staff explain the...drinks and dishes as the warmth of Owner’s Rimma & Steve chat with you table side as though you’re old friends catching up. Truly a gem in Ft. Lauderdale! Highly recommended.More

Outstanding entrees and tapas. Sunday night entertainment the best! My friend took me to Gatsby’s Joint for my birthday and boy did we have a great time. The small plated items were perfect, perogies, caprese burrata salad, lamb dumplings and Korean BBQ Baby Back ribs...were awesome. Our server made some recommendations for drinks and we delighted with her choices. It was our first time to Gatsby’s joint and had no idea that they offered entertainment. Rick Leonard and Victor Valdez were terrific singers with a comedic twist that made us thoroughly entertained. We will be back for more Sunday night fun. Food was superb too. Overall wonderful experience.More

We went in to Hear Victor Sing. We stayed for dinner. Service was wonderful and so was the meal. They are very accommodating. They combined two sides into a meal for me, it was delicious! I did not have to ask for this the waitress...suggested it, she was so helpful. The Other tow dishes were perfect as well. Great Joint to Hang out in and chill while listening to music. Perfect spot to take a group of friends for the evening. Highly recommend for a fun night out.More

My friends and I were directed to Gatsby's to listen to Anastasia, a singer who performs every Thursday evening through December 2019. She is excellent, personable, extremely talented, and worth every minute of the 50 minute drive from Miami. We will come back for more...of her. A totally unexpected surprise was the food. We later found that Steve and his sister, Rima, the owners, were also in charge of the kitchen. Stacy was our server supreme and filled us in on specials and menu selections. Our shared appetizer was grilled octopus in a potato puree. Who would have thought that the lowly potato would make such a perfect puree. The dish was perfectly cooked and properly spiced and was a joy to the three of us. Following that was the Crispy Brussels Sprout side dish: simply delicious. Our table followed with Salmon entrees and THE PORK CHOP. I'm capitalizing this simply because it was cooked a perfect medium as requested and was melt in your mouth moist. Yes, a pork chop! The menu is surprisingly extensive as is the alcohol list. The venue has a perfect speakeasy vibe and the entertainment calendar has a wide variety of acts from singers to burlesque performers to drag stars. Something appears to always be happening at Gatsby's and it will certainly bring us back. We are spreading the word. Thank you all for making the evening top drawer terrific.More
