"Wonderful steaks and good sides, along with great ambience and service made for a lovely evening. They were very gracious about decanting the special wine we brought and the $20 corkage fee was reasonable."

Enjoy pristine seafood, live lobsters and prime steaks in a fresh, upscale casual atmosphere at Lobster Bar Sea Grille. Filled with modern-contemporary nautical touches, the experience will leave you feeling like you have just dined on a luxury yacht. Beautiful tiled archways and custom lighting give the dining room a more intimate feel, while the lounge’s vibrant U-shaped bar and channel-back seating welcomes guests to relax and dine with friends and colleagues. The fully covered patio with cushioned furniture is ideal for cocktails and light outdoor dining.

"We were so pleased by our first try of this restaurant. It is very pretty and there is only a TV at the bar and in the back, unlike other local restaurants which are filled with TVs. The sushi was fresh and delicious and the rolls were creative. We loved the Thai dumplings and my husband enjoyed the wonton soup. we shall return."

S3, where sun, surf and sand uniquely fuse with steak, seafood and sushi for a perfect combination of island atmosphere and globally-influenced, sea-inspired fare.<br />A wood burning grill lights up the place and sets fire to the menu offering Grilled Octopus, Skirt Steak, Jerk Chicken Skewers, Shrimp Toast and more. Let your eyes do the ordering, via an expansive raw bar featuring fresh-caught delights like Tiradito Wahoo and Yellowtail, Snapper or snack plates like a Trio of Dips (whipped feta, chickpea, and roasted eggplants) or Goat Cheese Cakes. A moderately priced menu serves up a variety of small plates

"First, we were seated outdoors in a bar area (despite reservations). The crowd behind us was so rowdy, that we had to move. An hour later, we finally were seated at an appropriate outdoor table.. Now starving! Several managers and the owner came over to see if the table was more suitable, no one rushed our food order nor offered to comp a drink or dessert ,etc. We were customers of Grateful Palate and really enjoyed their food; the food here was, for the most part, disappointing.
Pulled pork flatbread was very good, as was tuna tartar. From there, it was downhill...My chorizo coated snapper completely lacked in flavor. When I told the server, he replied that the dish was still a work in progress! At $26.00, that should not be!

"As always, the food was good and I love the concept. We particularly enjoyed the venison chop...cooked perfectly and very tasty.
My only quibble is a limited menu.

Big City Tavern is a busy, vibrant restaurant reminiscent of the great urban taverns of Chicago, New York and Boston. A stylish, classic American restaurant, Big City offers a varied menu featuring dry aged steaks, burgers, fresh seafood, salads and fresh house-made pasta of the day. Some of the more popular dishes are the Pan Roasted Salmon with Tomato and the House-Made Charcuterie. The desserts are all enticing, all house made and all delicious. The extensive wine list emphasizes California varietals by the bottle or glass. With its magnificent grand bar always busy, Big City has a constant din of energy and conviviality. Big City offers outdoor sidewalk dining in the center of the action on Las Olas Blvd.<br /><br />Please call the restaurant to make reservations for parties of 12 or more!

"As always, the food was excellent. Particularly noteworthy was my husband's broiled lobster tail and my octopus appetizer.
The service, however, was lacking compared to previous times. Our server never came to check on us after the food arrived and we had to flag down a manager. He also did not listen well. I asked for sauce on the side for my lobster. Instead, the sauce was on the lobster and he brought me extra sauce. At this price point, we expect more attentive service.
