Wilton Manors - Dinner Options

My partner and I are looking for some good options in or near this area. A nicer ambience would be great and we are open to all types of cuisine. Thank you!

  1. These may not be on Wilton Drive but they are all at the top of my list...

    If you search cafe sharaku on this board you will find few, if any, negative reviews.

    We aren't quite regulars but my wife and I have been to Hi Life several times...She likes that she can order half sized entrees and I love the Braised Short Rib!

    We have only been once but we really enjoyed Cafe Seville and plan on returning soon. Service was impeccable, and the tapas and wine we shared made for a nice romantic dinner.

    I hope this helps!

    1. For a lesser ambiance: If you want casual and supposedly the best burgers around, Bill's Filling Station. I want to get down there soon and try one soon. Burger Beast, a burger blogger, swears by them.

        I finally had the pleasure of having a burger at Bill's and I can verify that they are awesome! I believe it was only $6 for a huge burger and delicious, fresh hand-cut fries.

      2. Off the drive, I recommend all of Live Rock's choices. On the drive, Galanga can't be beat...Beautiful atmosphere and an excellent dual menu of Thai and Japanese. They manage to do both quite well!

          I tried Galanga the other day and I left feeling unimpressed. There are better Thai food around (I believe Thai Spice was recommended over this place). And the sushi should be skipped - since Sozo has better and fresher sushi and is only a few blocks away.

            I stopped going to Galanga a few years ago because the quality went down and the prices went way up. Look up the Ft. Lauderdale location of Lemongrass Asian Bistro They have a great menu, food is always fresh and it's reasonably priced. I also can always count on Siam for Thai food at the south end of Wilton Drive sandwiched between the police station and Tropics Piano Bar.
