“Las Olas Blvd adventure”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

My spouse and I really enjoy visiting Fort Lauderdale…The relax ambience and the cultural blend (Anglo/Spanish/Latin) the city produce. Las Olas Boulevard, in particular, resume all this… If you are looking for a big chain restaurant with an industrial quality control type taste for flavors, Las Olas is not your place…We visit the Blvd about two or three times a year.. Never been disappointed with the French, Latin, American and Italian (our DNA favorite is Café Europa) restaurants…When we seat in any of their open terrace we expect something special. Sometimes is super excellent, sometimes better than good. For us all this is an exquisite adventure….What to bring? a relax attitude..Bon Appétit..

“Las Olas Blvd - A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

Las Olas Blvd. is a downtown shopping/restaurant district in Fort Lauderdale. The area is just off the new river and close to the beach. In recent years, the economy has taken its toll on the small businesses and restraurants in the area, however, the local business association still keeps the area in pristine condition. The area has limited parking, but the city operates a public lot. Check online often to find a schedule of events that includes art walks, local organic market days, and wine and food festivals.

“best place for great food & shopping in FTL”
Reviewed June 22, 2011

Great small restaurants and great boutiques. Best shopping in FTL---things you won't find anywhere else on your trip. No cheap touristy stuff. There are also some chain restaurants including Cheesecake Factory and Big City Tavern and Rocco's Tacos. But I'd check out the smaller places for a great lunch/dinner. Riverside Grill has great brunch. Mango's has great lunch & dinner and sometimes a live band. But everywhere on the strip you will find has a local vibe and fusion to it.

Good Afternoon "sarahevery",
I really enjoyed reading your review and must say that you took full advantage of the shopping and restaurants avaialble on Las Olas.

You are correct when you identified Las Olas as the Best Place, often referred to as the "Crown Jewel" of Fort Lauderdale.

Come see us soon again and do not forget to check out the specials at the Riverside Hotel, located directly on the Las Olas Boulevard.

Have a super afternoon,

“The Best Part of Fort Lauderdale”
Reviewed March 5, 2011

Las Olas is lined with boutiques and restaurants, lots of good places to stop in. Makes for a great place for a stroll on a sunny day. Dog-friendly, and lots of good smells from the restaurants as you walk. Just a place for a stroll and to chill out, but the best part of Fort Lauderdale.

Good Morning,
You are so right by identifying Las Olas Boulevard as the Crown Jewel of Fort Lauderdale. And yes, we love dogs. Did you know that the Riverside Hotel is pet friendly and Preston's Wine and Martini Lounge has every Sunday evening a Yappy Hour called "Canine & Cocktails". Do not miss this great event!

See you and your furry friend soon again on the Las Olas Boulevard,
