The Amalfi Grille is a unique and exciting dining experience. The Grille is a culmination of two childhood friends culinary delights! We make our own Ravioli, Cavatelli, and Fettuccine. We use only San Marzano Tomatoes for our Marinara Sauce. We are proud to be one of only two restaurants in the state of Florida who are licensed to serve Certified Angus Beef U.S.D.A Prime! We also serve the finest Veal Chops using only the first bone, and serving them with a Wild Mushroom Marsala! We also feature a full bar and one of the finest wine lists anywhere with a preference on Italy"s finest, Barolo's, Brunello's, Amarone's, and Super Tuscans. Our staff is knowledgable, friendly, and courteous, they will do there best to make you feel as if you were in our home! If you are looking for a restaurant with passion for its food and its wine, while offering the service you deserve.

You'll know the moment you arrive that Lawry's The Prime Rib is an extraordinary restaurant. The signature Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef are aged 21 days, rock salt-roasted to perfection then carved to order tableside from shining silver carts. The famous Spinning Bowl Salad, whipped cream horseradish, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and warm hospitality complete the experience that has landed Lawry's on countless "10 Best" lists and made it a dining legend since 1938.

"This is the first time we have dined at the original Lawry's in Beverly Hills. We had a great time. Our server made our experience very enjoyable and filled us in on the history. We had the special August meal for two that came with a bottle of wine and dessert that was exceedingly reasonably priced. Highly recommend."

Carmine’s is a family style, value-driven restaurant concept with locations in NYC, NJ, Nassau Bahamas, and Washington DC. Restaurateur Artie Cutler created Carmine’s with one goal in mind: to open a restaurant that would serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast, featuring extra large portions of home-style antipasto, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on extra large platters designed for sharing. Carmine’s is the perfect place to casually enjoy friends and family over great food and wine, with excellent service, the way it used to be at grandma’s house.

"If you have a big family I highly recommend Carmine's. The food is delicious and is very reasonable when split among a group. They also pack up leftovers to bring home. Extremely kid friendly."

Sumptuous is the best way to describe the delightful Asian cuisine at Gi Fu Loh, which translates as “gatherer of luck.” Gi Fu Loh features an intriguing menu that raises Cantonese cuisine’s authenticity and flavor in entrées you won’t soon forget. Seafood is the hallmark of Cantonese food, along with noodle soup, rice and vegetable courses, and exotic delicacies. And now, Gi Fu Loh has combined the best of two culinary Asian worlds by adding Sushi Kai, a sushi bar to its restaurant. You’ll enjoy traditional Japanese nigiri and sashimi along side popular fusion rolls. Be sure to imbibe with some Japanese wine, hot or cold sake, beer and yummy specialty cocktails.<br><br />Please note that hats are not permitted at Gi Fu Loh or Sushi Kai.<br><br />Private dining rooms are available.
