It was my husbands 72 birthday and we wanted to go to a special place to celebrate his special day. We sat on the back deck but at first we were hesitant because it was so warm outside. The hostess told us the curtains were closed and the outside area was air-conditioned. We sat next to the curtains and could... More

I would rate the food as very good. The service however, left a lot to be desired. First of all, with reservations for lunch, the hostess tried to seat 5 eighty year old ladies at the bar. The food, as good as it was, took an hour to get there. That's too long for a lunch of Lobster Rolls, Crab... More

We love this place. Food is delicious and service is on point. Atmosphere inside is a bit noisy but cool, outside is the best for the view and general atmosphere

We visited on the recommendation of friends. Our party of 6 sat out on the deck. If I went again I would sit inside. The tables are very close together and we had three bigger men with us who were cramped. There was also no breeze that night so air was pretty stagnate. We all chose seafood which was all... More

This restaurant has been a fabulous destination for years, and it still impresses. The fish is fresh and the sauces are perfection. The service was top flight and the ambiance could be the best in the Fort Lauderdale area. If you are seeking a place to spend a special time, this is it. A bit pricey, but it's worth the... More

We ended up here because of a bad experience with the manager from a nearby restaurant. I called from the car to see if there was availability for a party of 5 and if I needed a reservation. The gentlemen on the phone was extremely polite and even enthusiastic to hear that we were dining there, like we were some... More

How nice to still outside in a room with roll down walls and air conditioning. It was an August Weekend night so Blue Moon was not packed and service was excellent. We highly recommend the encrusted baked Brie as a shared appetizer. Two diners had black grouper, one diner had Chilean Sea Bass. The entrees were pricey but the portions... More

Four of us had dinner here celebrating my birthday. The special of the evening was the wahoo. It was prepared like I've never had before, partially grilled, rare in the middle on a bed of whipped sweet potatoes, shrimp, and spinach. Three of us had it and we all agreed it was a masterpiece. The lone standout, my wife, who... More

It is a classy restaurant with an amazing view of the inter coastal waterways. The menu is specialized, nothing too crazy but probably some combinations you have never tried before so definitely be adventurous because everything is amazing! I had a golden beet salad and horseradish maple brussel sprouts and souffle. On the higher end of the price scale but... More

Recipient of numerous awards for culinary excellence, the restaurant is known as one of the finest dining establishments on America’s east coast serving fresh seafood by the waterway. It is a well-known fact that Blue Moon offers the finest waterfront dining in Fort Lauderdale and is in the top tier of acclaimed restaurants within the entire South Florida region.

Blue Moon's elegant interior dining room is decorated in authentic Art Deco style with high ceilings, inlaid wood, carved accents and frosted art glass partitions featuring an underwater theme.

There's nothing quite as magical as enjoying an expertly crafted gourmet meal on the Blue Moon terrace where the boats pass by in graceful motion throughout the day and night.
