very poor management inattentive service. After being a regular customer of fifth ave grill over the past few years i was disappointed the last two times i was there.It has been about four months since i have gone because the last time i was double dipped on the tip.After leaving a cash tip after i paid with a debit card. They charged my card 20 percent. After i made the call to the restaurant the manager gave me a very hard time in refunding my money. It took numerous calls to a very rude manager who finally got it handled. I waited four months before i went back. I did so because my wife and i enjoyed their food and most of all the piano player on sat. night. We went back this sat 11/18 we had to get the hostess to get us a waiter for our drinks after not being attended to for 15 mins.We finally got our drinks and placed our order. The shrimp coctail and the salad were fine.Then they brought out our steaks. My wifes was fine but my steak was half the size of hers.When i showed this to the server she said she would get the manager.She came back 5 mins later and said the manager refused to come over to our table that all the steaks were the same size and she would not exchange my steak.So i just told her to take it back i wasnt going to pay 32 dollars for such a small piece of meat.I am a manager of a major used car dept in ft.lauderdale and if there is ever a cust complaint or problem i do everything possible to personally make sure that the problem gets resolved. This manager who ever it was didnt even have the desency to acknowledege us in any way.Unfortunately i will never go back to a place i have enjoyed for many years.Shame on you fifth ave grill.
Outstanding food!!. In an area that is overun with pretensious and overly expensive restaurants, this place stands out in food, value and service. The night we were there they had a special of a 1-1/4 lb. whole Maine lobster for only $15.95 and it was superb. I've had the early bird lobster at the Sea Watch in Lauderdale-By-the-Sea, and it can't begin to compare to this. We also had a "Bahamian Grouper" dish that was absolutely superb. The setting is nice - there's no view outside since it's located right on Federal Highway, but the place is nicely appointed. The wine list is more than adequate and the wines are fairly well priced at about a 2X markup from retail. The service was quite good and the waitress was very pleasant. The only slight negative was that we got seated next to a very large table that was celebrating an anniversary and they were quite loud - but that still didn't detract from the outstanding meal and good service. The lobster special was for the whole evening, not an "early bird" thing and they apparantly run it fairly often. This place is definitely on our re-visit list when we are in the Ft Lauderdale/Pompano Beach area.
