business dining Ft. Lauderdale

We will be in Ft Lauderdale at Harbor Beach Marriot for a week of business meetings. Any reccommendations for dinner on the corporate tab? There's the usual Capitol Grille but we can have that anywhere. Probably 10 - 12 people from mostly Chicago. Looking for service, atmosphere and probably plenty of seafood & steak ( though some of us (me) are more adventurous. Is Casa d'Angelo suitable? These folks like italian too. The menu looks right.

  1. 3030 Ocean at your hotel is excellent for seafood. Casa d'Angelo is suitable, but stay away if you are here during the weekend, as it is a "zoo," and reservations are not honored in a timely fashion.

    1. Grille 66 at the Hyatt is a good option for steak and seafood, and has a great setting on the intra coastal. I hosted a business dinner for a similar size group there a couple of years ago with people from all over the world and everyone had a great time. Request a table outside for great views of the passing boats.

        Thanks so much. Any thoughts on Yolo (somewhat mor causal I think) and 954 Steak?

        1. re: sagewisdom

          Yolo is a "scene" if you go past 8PM. Steak 954 is not great. I'd recommend Capital Grill or even Ruth's Chris over it.

      2. I agree with 3030 Ocean and also like Market 17. I also just heard some really good reviews for Seawatch which I haven't been to since they renovated, but it's supposed to be very good.
