Best seafood in town – i consider myself an ameteur sea food connoisseur and after living down here for 3 years and eating all over, i can say this is the best sea food i've had since eating freshly caught california halibut back home. the ambiance and mood is dim and lively with chatter and jazz playing in the background (not live), upon driving over the bridge, the place doesn't even look open. the staff is wonderful and very zealous about making your meal a wonderful experience. i had the halibut (pretty sure was alaskan), my wife had the surf 'n' turf, my friend had "the best dophin i've ever eaten", and his wife had the applewood bacon stuffed chicken breast. true, the appetizers and desserts are the price of most entrees at an average restaurant, however this is no average restaurant. for entrees, about 30 bucks is minimum, but worth it. while some places serve small, artistic, creative dishes, that may look more appealing than the taste, this place sets the bar--large, perfectly complented dishes, served in a very artistic manner. and the taste is no less than phenomenal. between 4 of us we easily spent about 220, not bad really. and we had the works, appetizers, main course, wine, desserts, etc... was expecting far worse. for a birthday, special occassion, this place is great.
Upscale seafood house lands a few, lets a few get away. – In Short
Art deco reigns with dark mahogany, bronze lamps, wrought-iron accents and frosted glass panels etched with sea life. Start by squeezing roasted garlic onto tomato-olive focaccia, then move on to appetizers like mussels with pancetta, rosemary and garlic or pastry-covered brie with apples, walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes and prosciutto. Shellfish and lobster tails also highlight the menu. For dessert, finish with the Grand Marnier soufflee.
Blue Moon Fish Company – Very overpriced. The food was extremely disappointly. Would never go back there or recommend this place to anyone.
Overpriced, solid food, wondrous ambience – First things first: the fish is good, but not great. It doesn't blow you away. I had both the Halibut and sea bass and both were somewhat disappointing, though large in portion. The selections are ambitious---lots of fish to pick from, with wondrous production. The actual food falls a bit flat, though it is still very solid. The appetizer, the crab cake, is exceptional, no doubt worth it. The breads (complimentary) are a bonus, and the wine selection is terrific. I can't say enough, however, about the vibe here: it's romantic, dark, buzzing with life and energy. Get a table outside, and enjoy the beautiful sea views. Overall, the food does seem overpriced. Entrees are all over $30, and you can't pay less than $10 for a high quality appetizer. That's a lot of money, and Blue Moon falls slightly short of giving you bang for your buck.
Excellent & imaginative sea food – Excellent sea food with imaginative touches. We loved the sea bass, the grouper and the snapper. The appetizers were even tastier than the main dishes (especially the fried oysters, the scallops and the baked brie). Save room for the souffle. Even the cappuccino was perfect. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. This was our best meal in Ft. Lauderdale.
Blue Moon Quality Food, but with some baggage – The fish and other food here is wonderful. The spinich salad is my favorite salad at any resturant. Excellent desserts and a large wine list. Excellent ambiance with view of Intercoastal. The service is very snooty and slow in the dining room. The bar has much better service and much friendlier people working there. The prices here are steep, but the quality of the food is unsurpassed.
Excellent Fish!!! – All of our Food was excellent!!, can't say the same about the staff.
Needs to improve service in order to be an elite restaurant!!!
However the Fish is excellent!!
Two for One! – What a pleasant surprise it was to take my parents to lunch at Blue Moon only to discover, purely by coincidence, that they are 2 for 1 on Saturdays!
Lunch was fantastic, even my French & Italian parents (who are amazing cooks) absolutely loved it.
The service was fabulous as well.
Another time I went for Sunday brunch and it was another fantastic dining experience! I highly recommend it and cannot wait to go back.
Blue Moon Baby – We came in from out of town and actually came here twice. Once for lunch and again the following week for dinner. Both times the food was awesome. Unfortunately, we did not make reservations for dinner and ate at a table in the bar area. The view was not as lovely as the terrace, we still enjoyed the food and desserts. A definite recommendation.
SIMPLY MARVELOUS – This is the best restaurant in Fort Lauderdale. The food is awesome. The service is outstanding and the atmosphere is great!
