We love it!! Of all the best locations... FLL is the best of all!! The music is amazing. I had a huge Surprise 50th party planned for my husband last year and due to my dad passing I had to cancel. This year I had a Surprise 50/51 party planned and canceled to due COVID-19. Instead, he and I had an amazing dinner last Saturday night and enjoyed ourselves immensely ♥️

Gave this restaurant a second chance . First time had reservation for 8 people at 8 pm for my husbands 50th birthday and didn't get a table till 10:30 - we left and went across the street to a very accommodating Greek restaurant. My 50th birthday was the other night and had a table for 12 people. Due to a medical emergency me and my husband had to fly back home. Not only did Cafe Martorano charge the existing party for our plates ($125 each) They also didn't provide the planned menu and made no apologies. Will never return due to poor management and a staff with no moral compass. They put the check on the table and were asked to leave.

When I walked in I felt like I was in someone's home. I was welcomed and so were my kids. Once our table was prepared according to our reservation we sat down and was greeted by staff. The server did an amazing job telling us the promo items and explaining them further since it was our first time there. He also went over the food and drink menu a little more as we asked. The other staff were very attentive in bringing bread to the table, clearing our dishes that we were done with, and boxing our food that we needed boxes were. Steve (the owner) was there on the line in the kitchen as well as mixing up music. For one you hardly see restaurant owner's on the line in the kitchen so that stood out big time for me since I was in the restaurant industry for over a decade. Also my youngest daughter enjoyed his DJ skills since that is her career goal so to see that closeup was awesome. Overall vibe was like family, laid back with a sense of fine dining, which was an awesome mix.

I brought my daughter and a friend because they have heard from us how fun it is....(we have come the last 3 times we were down here from New York) this time there was no music, no dancing and no fun movie interaction... perhaps becaus it was a Sunday night ( my previous visits were on the weekend)- perhaps it was because of his loss (for which we send condolences to the family)... however, the food was delicious - and after all - isn’t that why we go to a restaurant?

Way too extremely, ridiculous, incredibly loud. I like loud music in a club, or anywhere, actually. But the DJ was rattling the dishes on the table so intensely, it was impossible to have even the most basic conversation for the entire dinner.

Yellowtail prepared by Steve Martorano was terrific! We all had it and really enjoyed it. The wine, the drinks, the appetizer, the meal! Then Comes the Dessert by Marsha Martorano! The was nothing but crumbs on the plates after we devoured the Carrot Cake. A great way to start Lent. Thank you, Steve!

Great, great, great and great were the 4 Meals we had at Cafe Martorano last night! The Grouper was back on the menu and is one of Steves’s Best of all times. And don’t forget Marsha’s Deserts. We cleaned the platter. What a terrific meal. We will be back.
