Anyone been there? What did you think?
I was there a long time ago on a visit to east Ft Lauderdale. I remember that everyone in my party liked the food. Especially, the desserts were superb.
I have been 3 times in the past year and I loved every time. I had the something or other piccatta twice, and if I hadn't known I would have thought it was chicken. Great appetizers too. They also have a bar and do fantastic cocktails. The ambience and decor is also great.
I was there a few months ago. It was okay, but I was not as impressed as I expected to be, given all the recommendations I had been given by others. We shared the cauliflower app (fritto misto) which was tasty but heavy...(not surprising since it's a fried dish) I ordered the piccata for my entree which was disappointing in flavor, and the spinach was not good at all, in either texture or flavor. The potatoes were just okay. My husband got the portobello which was better.
My chocolate martini was good however, and for dessert, we left and went to Kilwins on Las Olas. Perhaps their other items are better, and some did look very interesting, but I had heard raves about the fritto misto and piccata and regrettably went with that.
As far as atmosphere, the place is beautiful. We were seated by the waterfall wall and it was lovely.
The interior is decorated nicely but personally I dislike it. I have been there over the years and between their numerous closings and re-openings. I don't mind vegetarian food at all and usually enjoy it but their food almost always flavorless and highly salted, to the point all you taste is the salt. Their original menu was much better in my opinion, when they had more simple food -- after all you can only get so fancy with soy.
