Description: Voodka is a Trancontinental Brasserie which concept has been created to make our patrons feel good and enjoy their time with us. Our menus are changing every four months to adapt to the seasons and keep on serving only fresh, non-frozen ingredients based dishes. The entire Decor at VOODKA reflects a true home feeling. The luxury armchair, modern Chesterfield sofas, classic furniture, vaulted ceilings and library were all put together as an invitation to seat back, relax and enjoy. No hurry here, if you wish to take your time after lunch or dinner, just grab a book and enjoy your last drink. Our menus are a mixture of three main influences, French, Russian and American. On week-ends, starting from 9:30 pm, our dj will rock the place for you to have an even better time after dessert.

Heard of that place from friends of mine. The bar is beautiful...femine clients too :)
Service was real good and the surf & turf cooked to perfection. Kelvin, one of the manager was going from table to table greeting his patrons, just a pleasant attitude. He told me they will start a Vodka Bar concept this coming week end that will consist in Vodka testing from a selection of over 100 different Vodkas and 20 different countries. I'll be there to try it especially as they will also offer Caviar testing.

I had dinner at Voodka tonight for the first time. Despite the negative comments I read on a stupid website called insidefortlauderdale.com I still wanted to give it a trial. It was just astonishing! Full of beautiful people, great service and excellent food. Not to be missed. Dan the manager is brilliant and Bogdan and Jessica are just woderful servers adding to the overall experience. My advise, try it!

I had dinner there Saturday night for the fourth time. It got better each time! Food and service were excellent and the atmosphere with the DJ on week-end just superb! All these negative comments are not very fair considering the restaurant openend its doors very recently. In any case, I would highly recommend the place to anybody who likes Las Olas just like I do.

I don't understand the poor reviews of this restaurant. Maybe we went on a good evening but we had a great experience! We sat outside, had a wonderful server, and we both ordered the lamb chops. Our food was excellent! We enjoyed this restaurant and we dine out a lot at really nice places! Give Vodka a try!

Do NOT set foot in this restaurant. The food is overpriced and service was horrible. Our waiter got our order wrong, did not check on us AT ALL after he took our order! We flagged down other staff to bring us water refills and hot water for tea. Our waiter busied himself with another table across the outdoor patio--six people seated there, so we surmise that our table of two simply didn't cut it in terms of potential gratuity coming his way. He ignored us, even when we waved to him for assistance.

Our food was cold and a bus boy eventually cleared it away. We waited another 20 minutes before we were finally able to get another waiter to bring us a manager. The manager did not apologize to us, just stated it was 'unfortunate' that they were busy that night--it was New Year's Day around 7:00 pm
The manager refused to alter / reduce our bill in any way. He tried to get us to accept a complimentary dessert instead. By that time, after such an unpleasant experience in which we were made to feel that we were not only unwelcome but also an imposition to the staff, we simply wished to leave. Although we should have walked out during the "meal", we paid our bill in the amount of $68.10 for two entrees (we had not ordered alcohol due to drink prices starting at $13 each). We believe in honesty; therefore, we paid via credit card and did not leave a cent for gratuity. Today, we initiated a claim with Visa to rescind our payment to this restaurant. We felt abused and intimidated by the staff, frankly. They were not only lacking completely in appreciation of our business, they were beyond rude to us. Note that they could have completely turned around the experience into a more positive scenario had they been willing to reduce our food bill due to the inexcusably poor service. We are not difficult to please and normally do not complain while in restaurants...the fact that we did on this occasion speaks to how horrible the evening was for us and how completely dissatisfied we were -- it took a negative toll on our vacation . Let this be a word to the wise to restaurant staff and managers of this establishment , 'Voodka'--which should just close its doors, anyway. If it does manage to survive, staff needs to be cognizant of the fact that vacationers, especially at peak times like December / January, are often an integral part of restaurant revenue, especially in Fort Lauderdale. Treating them badly on the assumption that they'll not be regulars and therefore are easy to dismiss / overlook is an unwise choice. They are capable of writing reviews and spreading the word, for better or worse, about the worth of an establishment.
Once again: do not patronize this restaurant--do yourself a favor!
