We really enjoyed our dining experience Here for my wife BD. My wife thought the shrimp fusilli was excellent. I had bronzino and the fish dish was probably one of the three best that I have tasted in my life. My son loved his pasta dish with scallops. Savory chocolate cake for dessert. Go there.

We dined on a delicious meal for New Years Eve and nothing disappointed. The food was terrific! We started by arriving early to enjoy a drink at the bar and moved to the table for delightfully different menu. The service was terrific! My only complaint and they are aware - it is so darn cold inside! They know it as... More

This asian-fusion tapas bar and restaurant is an absolute necessity in Fort Lauderdale. Great drink menu, fantastic bar tenders, and the best tapas food in Fort Lauderdale (think Miami Beach Drunken Dragon). Very impressed with the thoughtfulness in the food, the design, the talent and all around great effort. Must do spot in Fort Lauderdale, especially Friday happy hour.

This place has Ageism all over it. If you don't have white hair and look like your are rich. Forgot about getting a good seat, this is the 2nd time I came here and both times they try and make me move my seat. They tried to sit me in the worst section of the restaurant, even though the place... More

A varied menu paired with a deep wine list makes for a wonderful dinner out. Have been several times and have never been disappointed.

For the main part, the food was creative and very eye-pleasing. The main dinner plate of pasta and osso buco was too salty. The beet salad as a appetizer was ok. Our other dinner was a fish stew and it was good but not overly spectacular. The service was good, the atmosphere is lovely, and if you have a bad... More

From the second we arrived our senses were heightened on many levels. The vib was organized chaos from waiters bustling to please the diners, and the chefs in the open kitchen area creating sumptuous plates of food. I had a steak that was cooked perfectly for me, med rare with the most flavorful seasoning. All that was heard from our... More
