Ate here with 4 others during our girl's vacation. Our table was ready when we arrived. Even though the place was packed, the wait staff was always there in a timely fashion. The food was to die for. Be sure to try one of their signature drinks. You can't go wrong!

I love everything about this restaurant, from the Decor to the menu to the service to its location on the intercoastal waterway. I lve their passion fruit iced tea its special. The food is freshly prepared and nicely presented. I have never had a bad meal here… And I'm confident in saying it was almost perfection

Wonderful food, the Lobster appetizer was outstanding. We of course saved room for the to die for souffle. We went on a Thursday between 530 to 7. It's off season so it wasn't busy, which was nice so you didn't feel rushed. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed ourselves and the food. While it's expensive, go for a special occasion... More

My 2 friends and I split three apps and a bottle of wine. Loved the decor of the restaurant, great view of the waterway, and the service was quick! Highly recommend the hush puppies, calamari, and prosciutto wrapped brie!

Best Brunch in Ft. Lauderdale. Food is incredible as well as the service too. Recently remodeled and a great vibe in this long time waterfront established restaurant. Same friendly owners for 17 years. Love their new decor.

What can I say but *WOW*. The food was unbelievable. I'm not a fan of forced valet parking, and the older hostess there should find a job somewhere else, because being a hostess isn't her vocation. That aside, the blonde bartender with glasses (can't remember her name), MIke the waiter and Pedro the busser were 5 stars all the way.... More

Our group of 13 had an assortment of dishes...sea bass, grouper, mahi, Angel hair pasta with seafood, and everything was of excellent quality and portions. I personally had the blackened grouper and it was served with an asparagus/mushroom risotto. The size of the fish was huge and the quality of the preparation was outstanding. The service was great from the... More

My wife and I went to Blue Moon to celebrate an anniversary after reading all the glowing reviews about this place. What a disappointment. I've never seen a more surly greet staff or wait staff in my life. Like what, I'm doing you a favor by coming to your restaurant? Overpriced, overhyped, and over the top for me. It'll be... 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.
