We were here on New Years Eve and our meal was terrible. We didn’t even finish it and went next door to eat at Tuscan instead. We will never go back.

The pop-up Christmas bar was not at all what we expected. The food was not great and overpriced for what it was. I don’t think we will be returning.

Awesome all around experience. Paul, our waiter, was outstanding! We really felt pampered. We arrived and our table was ready and waiting with waters and complimentary stainless steel straws. We went for lunch since we had our littles in tow. They gave us little airplanes for the kids to play with and made sure the kids had their food out first. The Christmas decor was very detailed. They even had tiki Santa artwork up in the hallways. The food was really good and the drinks were fantastic. We just wish we could have ate and drank more!

We came to this restaurant on a Tuesday night after the sunset and were the only people eating...

I came with my wife and my little girl who has eggs allergies.

I notified the staff through my OpenTable reservation and the chef came to us to give us suggestions for my daughter, which we really think is a plus for this restaurant. Also, since we were the only people in the restaurant, service was obviously A1. My only negative point is actually the food itself, which is obviously important.

I don't know if we were just unlucky or if that's how they do things, but we felt like the plates we chose were not well thought of...

I had some skirt steak with chimichurri, brussel sprouts, and some shoestring fries... all 3 parts were ok, but nothing was linking those 3 things together... Same thing for my wife's plate...

I drank a Dark and Stormy which was very good but I wouldn't come back for the food.

Very good food and creative bar. Well prepared and presented. The bread pudding dessert was outstanding. It was a quiet rainy Monday so had a nice interaction with the owner and bartender.

We dined on a weeknight when the restaurants were not busy. The service was outstanding and the servers made excellent suggestions for our starters and dinners. The wine list was wonderful and most important the food was outstanding.

Sunday brunch had great mimosas and live music. Menu items were just average. Soft Pretzel was dry snd hard. Service was nice. Does not stand out on a busy street like Las Olas with so many other great options

Incredible service! Our server was great and the owner came over to chat with us. Bacon flight was a little salty for my taste but my burger was spot on and cooked just as I asked. The best item we ordered were the wings. Best wings I have ever had ! Just amazing - crispy on the outside and melt in your mouth on the inside. Definitely returning here soon!

The staff were very friendly. I recommend the chicken salad. It is the best I’ve had in years.

This is a great neighborhood place with a beautiful bar! The owners are the chef and hostess and they could not be nicer. My mom and I went for lunch. I mistakenly ordered chicken salad and wanted a grilled chicken breast. They made me one happily and then came to make sure I loved it. I would absolutely return for lunch or dinner and maybe hang for a drink. I hope they succeed. Good people

Living on Las Olas as I do it was a pleasure to eat in a somewhat new place and like it ALL. My party of four all very much liked their grouper, outstanding scallops and beef filet. I will definitely return and recommend this place to others.

Beautiful wine glasses. Good happy hour prices and variety. Whole rack of ribs for $22. Great value. I had the scallops. A dicey thing to order in a new restaurant. They came out perfectly with risotto. Highly recommend. We will be back.

What a fantastic NEW gem on Las Olas! We're always on the lookout for a new spot that isn't too pretentious, has great food, and service to match. This place had it ALL. The best part is when multiple servers/bartenders/managers stop by to share a tidbit of info and everyone is so stoked about the restaurant itself. It's clear they are all proud to work there. Great wine, awesome craft cocktails (the squadron should not be missed), and the baked wings were a great starter! Had a skirt steak cooked perfectly, and finished off with one of the best bread puddings I've ever had. Do not miss this spot. It's worth it.

Avocado tempura is a must. I had the burger and it was really good. Soda machine was broken but the waiter was really kind about it. I’d be interested to try more food before giving it 5 stars.

The chef is extremely creative and has amazing talent. For the price this is excellent place to eat on Las Olas Blvd. We have been here three times in the last two weeks and will keep coming back until we try everything on the menu. You must try the avocado tempura appetizer. The burgers are great the skirt steak is amazing and the fresh catch of the day is always straight from the boat.

The food and service were fantastic, I’ve added Flight 19 to my Fort Lauderdale must eat list for anytime I visit. The shrimp and grits with cauliflower polenta was delightfully unexpected.
