“An intimate restaurant near Port Everglades”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Bistro Mezzaluna Restaurant is a beautiful restaurant. White tablecloths and great ambiance. We had exceptional service from our waiter, Waz. Lynn and I shared one of Mezzaluna's specials...Rack of Lamb...four nice chops. This is a dish that we order regularly elsewhere and we both agreed that this was the best that we had ever had. We were also surprised to see flatbreads in our bread basket along with an extensive selection of breads. We had not seen flatbreads since we last visited a favorite restaurant in Breckenridge, Colorado. Waz gave us a complimentary bunch of the bread to take home. We highly recommend Mezzaluna.

“A welcoming, special place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Ate at Mezz over the weekend with friends. OUTSTANDING. From the minute you walk in the door (Monroe and Frank know what they are doing) to the service once you sit down (Serge rocks) this place does it right. They fix an honest drink at the bar, and serve you with a heavy hand on everything coming out of the kitchen. Food was superb--we had oysters, goat cheese salad, stuffed pork chop, hanger steak, shrimp scampi, and HUGE apple betty/pie for dessert. Everything was spot on. Plenty of free parking--easy in and out. No Las Olas bull. Get here soon--it'll be season and the place will be packed!

“A lesson for others”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Mezzaluna was heaving the night we walked in. No matter, said the very welcoming maitre d', have a drink on us at the bar and we will fit you in as soon as we can. Fifteen minutes later, we were seated and ready to order. Friendly, helpful service. A comprehensive menu, but I ordered veal and my wife had sea bass. The cooking, presentation and taste were excellent. This was a no-fault place. So good, I am almost reluctant to return (although I shall) in case they don't get it so right next time. Very highly recommended.

“Great place for happy hour as well as your meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Love going here for the seafood pasta on special occasions but got to meet friends here for happy hour this summer while working on our beach house. This is a local hangout where you can watch just about anyone show up to pick up takeout from the restaurant (a number of famous people in the area). Extremely friends staff, new owner has kept the quality up. New location is easier to find parking and off the main drag.
