      We enjoy all types of food .Looking for a special place for a 50th Birthday Party for ten. But mostly med price range would be great. Thanks

        In two weeks you can cover a lot of ground. I would suggest doing a search on this board and try to pick places that sound like what you might like and then we can try to help you narrow down your list. As far as a special place for your 50th, give us something more to work with and I'm sure we can help.

        We really like it all . That can be a issue, I guess a steak ,seafood up scale Rest. is what we are looking for. Yes we have cars and would like to stay in Lauderdale.Thanks

          For steak, seafood upscale, try Riley McDermott's.

            For upscale with wonderful food and service, I would suggest Mark's Las Olas. Mark Miletello is a distinguished Florida chef and the menu is varied and sure to please all. The atmosphere is modern, with a large bar, wine list, and attentive service. Check out the website:
            For italian, I suugest Casa de Angelo.
            Also a wonderful place with great food---but with a busier vibe. I actually celebrated someone's 50th BD there in the wine room. I ate at Riley McDermotts once and thought the food was far below the two mentioned above. The service was also pretty awful, although it is a nice looking restaurant. Happy 50th! enjoy....

      3. We just had yet another great dinner at Canyon last night...I highly recommend it. The food and service continue to shine. Although they don't take reservations, for a large party they can usally work something out.
