"We waited a full 30 minutes for our waiter to come back after dropping water off at our table. After the initial wait it was continually difficult to get our waiter's attention despite attempts to call him over for a water refill. The waiter was cordial otherwise, but the wait times were absurd, especially because the restaurant was not crowded.
The food was delicious- split the cheese plate, salad, and pizza with one other person. There was a saxophone player throughout the night that was a bit too loud for easy conversation across the table, but he was talented so that wasn't a huge issue. I would not recommend this setting for people who may be hard of hearing or looking for a nice place to chat.
Had this place not been recommended by locals for their food we would have walked out.

"We got to the place and they DID NOT have our reservation from OpenTable. There was a really loud singer on the patio, the wind was blowing hard on the curtains, it was raining... so, I asked for a table/booth inside, and was firmly denied. The hostess was very rude. At the table, the waitress was actually nice and the food was not bad. But it sort of ruined the V-day being sit at a place we didn't want/like. Since I was there with my wife and little girl, we just decided to stay instead of trying to find another place at night in the rain."

"Went with my wife on the 13th for an early Valentines, and there were lots of couples. Good views, great food, and good music from the live performer. Service was decent, but, not super attentive- It was 9pm on a Saturday night in an oceanside restaurant. She exceeded what I thought we'd get due to how busy it was, and only a minor mistake! Kudos to her for keeping up.
We loved it. One appetizer, 2 drinks per person and 2 items off of the Chef's recommendations came out to about 75/person (they include a tip automatically, btw, not everyone is a fan of that). I wouldn't say those prices are quite everyday lunch range, but, certainly worth every penny for the restaurant/food/ambiance. Trappist beer on hand is always a plus, too!
Small Caveat/warning: Had to park in a neighboring lot for 10 bucks (which was WAY cheaper than expected!) and we actually found the cafe of the same name on the other side of the block first by accident because we parked in those lots and that caused some early confusion- The restaurant faces the ocean, and the parking is a block in from the beach."

"Spazio in Ft. Lauderdale is a disaster. Customer Service as in NONE. We reserved a table for 7 at Spazio using Open Table, took a cab from our hotel, and arrived on time. It was Valentine’s Day and the restaurant was very crowded and very noisy. It was freezing outdoors and they wanted to seat us at a table right near a gale force wind with no awning. It was quite windy - not their fault. But when we spoke to the Manager, he told us there was nothing he could do and that we might have to wait a long time or they might never be able to get us a table. This is no way to run a business. He actually screamed at us when we asked how much longer he thought we would have to wait. He shouted at us to leave. I have used Open Table extensively in cities all over the USA, and I have never been treated so rudely. He should have asked us to sit at the bar, that he would give us a drink, and that he would do his best to find us a table as soon as possible. It wasn’t his fault that the weather turned and that it was very windy and that the patio awning had malfunctioned on the side where they planned to seat us. However, it was his problem and we expected a reasonable solution. It was also such a noisy restaurant that conversations were almost impossible. NEVER go to Spazio if kind customer service is one of your values."

"There are not many good restaurants on the main beach strip in Fort Lauderdale. We gave this restaurant a try and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good and we had a nice relaxing meal across the street from the ocean."

"The table was ready right on time and the manager and hostess were very attentive. A nice view of the beach and there is indoor or outdoor seating. The food was outstanding and the prices were moderate. $20 to $30 per entrée on the menu and higher for the specials. You will have to ask for the market prices which were around $45.
Service was great but what ruined the whole experience for me was that they added a 15% service charge that wasn't announced when the bill came to the table. I ended up double tipping and didn't realize it until the next day. Buyer beware I guess but a sneaky trick by the servers. I'm not sure I'll be back since there is too much competition for my food dollars.
