We always have dinner here when in Fort Lauderdale. Great location on Las Olas. Appetizers of truffle parmesan french fries, pan seared scallops (eaten as a main), Caesar salad, tavern wedge (with balsamic dressing instead of blue cheese dressing) and burrata Caprese were all very delicious. Mains of chicken Caesar salad and pan roasted salmon filet were very good. The... More

My coworker and I only had 1.5 hours to be seated, drink, order, eat, and leave before heading to airport. There was a good crowd but the restaurant was able to seat you pretty quick. Our wait staff Medea (Not Tyler Perry), was full of energy, witty, provided quick, and efficient service. The food was outstanding! I plan on revisiting... More

Great salads and Mango Moscow Mules. We were able to sit on the patio and enjoyed the people watching. Truffle fries were yummy too!

When I am in town I find myself back here for at least one dinner. Always great food. I had the Ahi Tuna which was surprisingly good. Oriental prep with long wooden sticks to shuffle the food around before resorting to a tradition fork. Tasted great. The waitress was gorgeous. Nice ambience but a bit noisy. I would definitely go...

We stopped here for lunch on our last day in Fort Lauderdale. It is a very nice looking place with plenty of outdoor seating. We both enjoyed our meal. The Parmesan fries are excellent as was my smoked turkey sandwich. They also have a nice drink menu. Service was very attentive. Highly recommend

After having to wait an hour to be seated, I was disappointed with our service. It was very slow. A meal that should have taken at least an hour turned into two. My drinks were nothing special. One of them had frozen melon balls, which did make for a pleasant snack. The food, however, was decent, but I wasn't overly... More

The best hamburgers I have ever had. But if you want to talk, without yelling, come when it is not busy, because when it is full, it is noisy and not conversation-friendly.
