PISTACHE is a Parisian-style French bistro with a Mediterranean twist. It serves simple, delicious meals made with fresh, local and imported products. It seats 180 people and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Prices are moderate and the recipes nutritionally healthy. Service is casual and efficient. The atmosphere is upbeat with a definite European flair. The interior is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau, which defined most brasseries and bistros opened in 1920"s Paris. It boasts cozy seating with numerous red leather banquettes, a full bar and giant antique mirrors. The restaurant has a feel of "Always been there". It is classic, retro-modern and sophisticated but unpretentious. The outdoor patio overlooks Centennial Park, the Fountains and the Intracoastal Waterway. It is shaded with large umbrellas and seats 30 people in a Riviera-like setting.

"Terrific spot with full entrees, small plates, and a great hamburger. Perfect for those going to Palm Beach Dramaworks 3 doors down as the restaurant has a fixed price theater menu. Loved the hamburger, mahai mahai, osso busco. Pistachio creme brule was wonderful. We will be back"

Recipient of numerous awards for culinary excellence, the restaurant is known as one of the finest dining establishments on America’s east coast serving fresh seafood by the waterway. It is a well-known fact that Blue Moon offers the finest waterfront dining in Fort Lauderdale and is in the top tier of acclaimed restaurants within the entire South Florida region.<br /><br />Blue Moon's elegant interior dining room is decorated in authentic Art Deco style with high ceilings, inlaid wood, carved accents and frosted art glass partitions featuring an underwater theme.<br /><br />There's nothing quite as magical as enjoying an expertly crafted gourmet meal on the Blue Moon terrace where the boats pass by in graceful motion throughout the day and night.

"Blue Moon Fish Co. is a wonderful restaurant. Service is efficient and caring. Food is superb. Salads, sandwiches and entrees are perfect for lunch. Try the calamari and shrimp appetizer, the filet salad and the salmon entree. Delicious"

"First, the food here is good. It also is overpriced and you can find equally good if not better Italian restaurants, with more fair prices nearby. $24 for spaghetti with meat sauce outrageous. Lasagana was good but at $20, not worth it. Not even a small salad comes with the entrees. Plus, for what wants to be a high end to charge extra for iced tea refills is ridiculous; especially when water is never offered, nor brought. Our waitress was apathetic at best. When she brought our meals all she said was the plates are hot. Never checked back. Each time we needed a refill we had to ask another server. She didnt know what the prices of the specials were nor did she make them sound appetizing. Only 4 tables were occupied, with 4 servers."

"Daniela’s is a regular stop when we are in NYC. Its location makes it perfect when we are going from a matinee to an evening show or just seeing one show. But we wouldn’t keep returning unless Daniela’s offered good food. The fixed price dinner includes soup or salad, pasta or chicken entrée and choice of dessert for $31, a clear bargain. And the portions are full sized. Loved the chicken picatta, a large serving that was full of flavor and served with potatoes and broccoli; spaghetti and meatballs was hearty; tiramisu and mousse cake were equally great. The place is often busy before theater and quite noisy. But that’s NYC!"

"While this stretch of Park Avenue is busy, it also is the start of a residential area so it's a bit quieter. Park Avenue is a regular stop when I stay at the Grand Hyatt. The restaurant is nice, the area a bit calmer and the food great. Seafood stew, a special of the day, was perfect for the rainy cold day. Caesar salad was crisp and fresh. Service very good."

A Diamond in the Diamond district, a home away from home in Times Square NY, a New Show in the Theater District... A delicious Cuisine with the experience of a staff working together for more than 10 years, to add care and gusto to hospitality. <br /><br />

"Our first time here and we will be back. Great Italian food on a busy street. We just got in to NYC and were tired and too rainy a night. Ceci Italian Restaurant made us feel better with its good service and terrific food. Try the fixed price dinner, a good deal and the portions are full sized. Caesar salad was crisp and fresh, the salmon terrific and the dessert a sweet ending. This may become a regular spot for us when in NYC."

"A great spot before or after theater, when you want something simple but good. The Heartland Brewery Chophouse has long been a regular stop for us when we are in NYC, especially after theater. We love the burgers, the sandwiches and the salads. Service was wonderful."

Johnny V opened in December of 2003 and features the unique cuisine of Chef Johnny Vinczencz. The food is Regional American with Latin and Caribbean influences. Chef Vincencz combines the freshest ingredients of South Florida with a beautifully blended selection of spices from the Caribbean and South America. The result is a wide ranging menu of unique items, like blue corn crusted calamari and ancho cinnamon grilled pork tenderloin. Sporting bold compositions and beautiful presentations, the cuisine at Johnny V is like a trek through America's Heartland by way of the islands. The Chef and his staff have worked had to make dining in this restaurant an elegant adventure. The restaurant has received numerous accolades including 4 stars from the Miami Herald, 4 Stars from the Sun-Sentinel and Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. In 2005, it was voted #1 of the top 100 restaurants in the Sun-Sentinel as well as Best New Restaurant in Conde Nast Traveler.

"Johnny V's is constantly listed as one of the best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale and for good reason. It is excellent. We loved the pork chop served with Sweet Potato Hash, Baby Green Beans with Jamon Serrano, Chunky Apply Sauce, Cranberry Sorbet and the sauteed yellowtail snapper. Very innovative menu."

Our steaks are selected from Prime mid-western aged beef, hand cut and cooked to order.<br />Our seafood is purchased directly from "Day boat fishermen", prepared simply and cooked to perfection. Oyster lovers can select the best oysters available, from the North West. Don’t call for seafood specials for the evening prior to 4:00 p.m....Chef is still at the airport...we just don't know, yet! Z's Oyster Bar and Steakhouse also features a Wine Spectator award winning wine list with over 600 different selections. Relax, and enjoy our award winning food, wine, and service. We look forward to seeing you soon.

"First, service is impeccable, from the moment the hostess greets you to the outstanding care the waiter takes with everything. Raw oysters, fresh daily, were terrific. Ceviche was tremendous burst of flavor. Wedge salad done with care. Mint Julep and old-fashioned were terrific as well"

"Love this place. Near the Humana Play Festivial, it is a gem of a Southern restaurant. Seafood gumbo was thick and rich and brimming with flavor. Special care is taken with flown in fresh daily oysters. Love the house barbecue sauce which is nice and spicy. Will return. And service is excellent."
