Greater Fort Lauderdale’s thriving restaurant scene offers something for everyone. Steak and seafood classics complement an array of international choices. Dining hotspots serve up Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Thai and more. In the mood for an artisan coffee drink, low-carb sandwich, or gluten-free dessert? We know just the place.
Dine al fresco overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. Or cozy up at the fire pit for a dish as memorable as the sunrise. From minimalist chic to stately brick and wood, you’ll find an atmosphere to suit your taste.
Find that margarita-centric tiki bar you’ve been dreaming about. Catch the Polynesian dancers spinning fire and magic. Stop in for a quick bite at a casual diner. Grab a creamy gelato to cool off from the beach. Or make a night of it with a lavish sit-down affair. Mingle with the locals over pastries and stay for lunch at one of the elegant bistros.
Many of the restaurants have been recognized with awards from Wine Spectator, Florida’s Hotspots Magazine, OpenTable, and more. Whether you’re searching for the perfect host for your private party, or a cozy table for two, you won’t have to look far!
