  • ChefMozGreat food, great prices, warm welcoming staff. They also have great bartenders. Their dining areas are very beautiful from the ceiling to floor doors, brick walls, to the elegant back walls. Wonderful staff and management. I recommend Big City Tavern everywhere

  • ChefMozRude 20 something wait staff, can't wait to go home. Bad attitude. Management couldn't care less about customers. Typical Ft. Lauderdale bar...loud, dirty.

  • Marc S.The sea scallops with risotto. Scallops were good; risotto slightly undercooked; the tomatoes are wrong for this dish. Should be left out.
