The food was delicious. It had been a couple of years since I last ate at Timpano's and the quality of food has much improved. We will be back.

Timpani is one of our favorite go to restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. A classic old fashioned chophouse. Great steaks and seafood. The. grilled muscle appetizer is like no other anywhere. The service is excellent. I great place to dine and enjoy.

We took a group of friend to Timpano’s on Saturday night and had our usual OUTSTANDING experience from the bar area with Shannon to our server Hernando to the restaurant manager Joe who each provided excellent customer service and made our party feel special which is the reason this is our “go-to” place for special occasions and when we have family/friends in town.

Must say our server, Arturo, took control of our small birthday party of 7 from start to finish. The cocktail service and appetizers arrived smoothly and everybody enjoyed. When 4 diners saw salad course of other, they wanted the same. Arturo handled smoothly with little delay such that all ate together. Entrees arrived as ordered and everybody at once!! Important timing to my dining experience. Arturo provided constant art without intrusion. The party "sharing" two desserts did not deter Arturo's excellent service. A fantastic memory by all in party who sent me text Thanks post meal 👍👍

We sat outside on a Sunday night as we brought our dog with us. It was not too hot and good for people watching on Las Olas. My Caesar salad was very good though the croutons were a little soggy. My chicken marsala was excellent and my wife's branzino was very good. It was complemented with a Hands of time Cabernet. Will definitely be back.

Timpano has been a mainstay of consistency and quality since it's inception at 450 East Las Olas.
Always high quality, always tasty, always unobtrusive but sensibly effective service.
Their beef, lamb, veal and pork are succulent and we'll grilled. Osso bucco generous and tender surrounded by simple but delicious rissoto.
Marsala sauce a classic.
Pastas are mostly lighter and sauces thinner for less carbs and more protein and flavor, with a few traditionally delicious heavier favorites that qualify as high quality comfort foods. No standard Olive Garden nor neighborhood pastas and sauces here. All fresh, all the best ingredients, and all made in house.
Drinks are reasonable to standard for a downtown setting, and cheaper than most of Las Olas' finest places.
If you haven't been, you need to go. Best combination of American chophouse and Italian upscale on Las Olas..

This is a chain with few bells and whistles. The mussels ring the cash register, but most other menu items or fairly pedestrian. The FLL location is rumored to be closing and changing into a steakhouse chain. Solid drinks at the bar especially large martinis. The restaurant needs some wow factor that meets the competition nearby on Las Olas.

Amazing hospitality! Best on Las Olas. Service from Nick has to be the best genuine service you can get in all of Fort Lauderdale. Culinary creativity was spectacular! Chef Maiky took time out of a pack restaurant to say hi to us. Absolutely the best spot running in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

On the pricey side for a meal but probably right in the area for a chophouse. Our server was phenomenal, but sadly I cant recall his name. A bit loud in the dining area. Food was fantastic as well.

We frequent Timpano's and on this last visit it was not up to its typical standards. The appetizer (signature mussels) was luke warm and not really sizzling as it should have been and two of our meals were also luke warm. Steak ordered by one of my guests was requested to be medium but it arrived rare. The Waiter was only at our table to take our initial drink order after we sat, then came back to take the dinner order and then swung by at the end of the meal to check how things were. Otherwise he was no where to be seen....disappointing, especially since I had wanted to order a glass of wine with my dinner. Also disappointed in that it appears the restaurant now allows patrons to bring their pets into the main dining room. I can understand allowing pets on the outside seating area but in the restaurant? And this was not a service animal but a patron's lap dog. Overall the experience; food and service, was average, not at all what I have come to expect from this restaurant and for the price paid. This was Sunday evening and the restaurant did not appear busy so I am not sure what was going on. Perhaps just an off-night or perhaps Timpano's it has run its course and its time to move on.

I’m a little disappointed, my wife and my Mother in law enjoyed it but I was looking to enjoy the Osso bucco, but on that day the Restaurant didn’t have it. That surprised me, I was counting the days hoping to eat the dish.

Great food, wonderful atmosphere, and excellent service makes Timpano a great spot for a special occasion. This was my second visit to Timpano (I'm not a local). Enjoyable meal with friends. Our server, Gene, was excellent, the food was first-rate and the bartender makes a mean martini. Highly recommended.

We had bad traffic from the north heading south and wished we weren’t rushed but they totally accommodated us (half hour late for resv and waiter put our order in right away so we could still make the show at Broward Theater). Food was great and we look forward to going back when we can sit back and take our time. Definitely recommend.
