Take your money and party elsewhere – We were a party of 15 and had made accomodations early for the party. Our waiter Steven was not very attentive and had to be called back to the table. I asked the manager Jason to accomodate us by turing the music down temporarily for the guest of honor to propose to his to girlfriend. The manager said no, I was just told to turn it up, sorry I can't do that. I paid the bill and did not make a scene at the party, but my money and most of my friends will never go back.

great spot for a drink – big city is a las olas classic... a locals place that is also known for catering to the tourist crowd, but nonetheless a great place for a couple of beers with friends. they have ur typical selection on tap and the ambiance is right on.

Fun atmosphere/ Great food – Came here after work last week. Sat at a table by the bar. Good selection of beer. Had the flat bread and was impressed. It is reasonable and better than the average rest./bar in Las Olas. I'd recommend

Spectacular – First off let me put to rest the previous reviews that are on this site. I don't know if management has changed or the chef or what...but the place is specatacular! As a chef I have not had a better prepared meal in years. The crab cake was perfectly cooked with a sauce that complimented it very well. The filet and the seabass were equally impressive. I had an Argetinian Malbec to go with my meal and the wine selection is perfect for the cuisine. The ambience was nice, very clean , and decorated with a nice modern touch. I would encourage everyone to try this place as I will DEFINITELY return next time I am in town. If Big City Tavern needs any help promoting their establishment they can contact me and I will be glad to help.

User review by catsmeaow – The food is good and so is the service. I would like to see more international wine selections, mostly California.

Upscale restaurant and wine bar serves variety of New American lunch and dinner fare to sophisticated Las Olas crowd. – In Short
Locals and tourists alike mingle at this lively spot. Floor-to-ceiling front windows reveal bustling Las Olas Boulevard; inside, beautiful lighting, cozy banquettes, hardwood floors and exposed-brick walls set the scene for the always-busy bar and dining area. The menu includes sandwiches, "main plate" salads, pasta dishes and heartier entrees like grilled pork chops in apple-porcini sauce and almond-crusted trout with french fries. Choose wine from an extensive list that includes rare and reserve bottles.
