Love this restaurant! We always try to go to Plaza Bistro when we visit Fort lauderdale. The restaurant is very unique! I think it was another name last year and it also had a piano one year when we went. But still really fun outdoor restaurant and the food is good! For sure worth a try when in Fort Lauderdale.

Even though the menu has changed since we were there a year ago, this bistro continues to produce good food and service. Yes, it is tapas size plates but, hey, at 70 years old that's perfect. So, order three or four small plates for two people and enjoy. Duncan, thanks for your good service and conversation.

The concept of this place is oustanding. The food awesome. The service even better. The only thing is they change menú once in a while, so Apple pie appears on trip advisors Pictures are not offered anymore.

We had a party of 11 and they accommodated all of our needs. We had children with us who enjoyed dancing on the patio while the adults finished their dinner and drinks. The food was tasty and pleasantly presented. I look forward to a romatic evening there with my hubby the next time we are in the area. Lovely setting... More

This place is nice. It's outside in a very quiet area. The food is excellent but... The portions are small. If you order a steak or something else, you need to order side dishes separately and it becomes spendy. The device is great.

Very nice evening under a canopy with a pleasant ocean breeze. Menu items are tapas size. For example, 6 coconut shrimp on the plate for $13. Flatbreads were exceptional. Our server was very accommodating for our group of 11 by creating separate checks. Of course that was to his advantage by bypassing the mandatory 18% tip for parties of 6... More

My family and I gathered this evening at Plaza Bistro. Our experience was fantastic! The ambiance was spectacular! We loved sitting under the wooden arbor with hanging bistro lights and lanterns, which was so charming. The outdoor venue, with lounge furniture and lighted palm trees felt open, yet intimate. The music absolutely enhanced our experience...so fun to dance throughout our... More

We enjoyed our visit there last year, but it then closed and has now re-opened under new management. Attractive outdoor site. Menu is quite limited and wine list has two items - red or white - both quite drinkable. The wait staff had very little English. We were served our starter and main courses at the same time! The main... More

With the high amount of resturants to choose from in Fort Lauderdale , it can be difficult to pick one out , but please give this one a try as it appears to be a little different than many others. You will be sitting outside on a plaze so make sure you pick a warm night. The atmosphere is very... More
