DINE OUT LAUDERDALE RESTAURANT CHOICE FOR A SATURDAY NIGHT. GREAT ATMOSPHERE, STAFF SERVICE WAS A LITTLE SLOW. CHICKPEA HUMMUS WAS DELICIOUS AND THE CHOCOLATE CHIP CAKE WAS FABULOUS. BEEF TENDERLOIN WAS CHEWY AND THE FRITAS WERE TOO SALTY. UPGRADE TO STRIP STEAK WAS MUCH BETTER BUT HAD NO SIDE WITH IT. DRINKS FROM THE BAR WERE VERY GOOD. NEW RESTAURANT THAT SHOULD BE CHECKED OUT.

The food was excellent. The service terrible. Only 1 waiter for the entire restaurant. No back-up plan. Waited 2 hours for our main course. The staff tried but you could see there were problems...especially in the kitchen. We will give them another try it n a few months when they get the kinks ironed out. We loved the food and menu choices.

My friend and I are both foodies, so were blown away by the delicious innovative food. The sommelier was very knowledgeable, the staff was friendly and efficient, and we would both highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Hubby and I went and felt they were a little under staffed since the hostess took our order. We didn't mind because place was busy. We had the wine pairing with the Miami spice menu and I really enjoyed it. Food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant lacked ambiance a bit they should of had some background music since it was the weekend and it felt quiet at times. Luckily my husband is an entertainer. 😂 Will be going back again since we loved the food!

We went here for Dine out Ft. Lauderdale and their selection was fabulous. When I go back I will be ordering a full order of the pork belly sliders. We also had, and thoroughly enjoyed, the hummus for our appetizers. The entrees were excellent as well, everything we ordered was great and the other selections on the menu all looked good as well.

You will not find a place like this outside of going to trendy South Beach in South Florida. The food is so different then any place else. Top quality, great flavor, and an excellent chef. Hands down the best place in Tri-County area. This was my second time there, and can't wait to go back.

I would not recommend eating and American English. Upon entry we were greeted very warmly and immediately. No one else was in the restaurant. The bartender was quite pleasant and friendly. We were seated and ordered appertizers that were delicious, so I was looking forward to dinner. The entree I there for which was both on the website and on the menu was not being served (Soft shell crab in a chili sauce) but was substituted with shrimp ( a poor replacement Lobster would have been a better offering) so I the recommended braised veal shank. This was very disappointing. It lack flavor and the sauce was very tart and seemed lot a disjointed dish. My wife and friend ordered the gnocchi and lamb ragu, again the dish disappointed. The ragu had no flavor and very little lamb and the gnocchi were not very light. The last dish of our order was the carbonara and also was not very flavorful. My wife took my shank and I returned the ragu. The check was close to $400.00 and while the chef was making rounds to the other 2 covers that were in the restaurant he never approached my table.

Nice people and service. But our table was next to the open kitchen and the fans were inadequate to remove smoke and odor. Consequently, we suffered the smell throughout dinner. Menu was interesting but too limited. Food much to expensive for the ambience. Noisy. Not good enough to go back given the value.

What a great surprise. Never been here before and the meal was fantastic. The menu has your basic proteins, and I really enjoyed his preparation. You can tell the chef is holding back on his creativity. He blends the side dishes into a supporting cast of favors that do not conceal the main, but can stand on their own.
The bartender is really cool. I wanted a bourbon cocktail and he came over to help with something different. Then he took the time to share his love of scotch. Just a fun conversation and sharing of knowledge.
Highly recommend this place.

Great bar area upon entering restaurant. Food is delicious from tomato slices with burrata to grouper and steak. Best of all - chocolate chip cake for dessert! New restaurant - but servers and chefs were attentive and served food promptly.
