We are Fort Lauderdale locals and enjoy the Las Olas sidewalk opportunities. We have eaten at Tundra in the past and found it delightful and worth the slightly inflated prices.

We went back last night to try the Tundra Tour of the chef's 10 favorite selections. While the servings were, for the most part, quite good, several were grossly over-salted. The Kobe beef meat balls were delivered to the table cold and had to be returned. It was not easy to correct that problem as I had t leave the table to find someone to tell about the problem.

The service was abysmal. We felt like the waiter had judged us unworthy of his attention and was only interested in making the table available to another victim as quickly as possible. The "Tour" was more like a cheap bus trip with a disinterested guide and a stopwatch. Each succeeding course was delivered long before we finished the last. We were there on our schedule, not the chef's or the waiter's and we found this very offensive.

To repeat, the quality of the food, except for the salt content, was quite good and when we finished we were full. However, when the check arrived it showed two items that were never served. When I pointed this out to the waiter he rushed off saying he would look into it. We had mentioned to him that we were full and did not want any more food, and while he was away "looking into it" we joked that he would probably return with two more courses we did not want or ask for. He did. Then he was rude when we said we did not ask for more food.

For the first time in years I felt justified at leaving no tip and writing a polite but negative comment on the check. We will not return.

Classy. Clean. Valet offered. Food tasty and of quality but the prices seem to include an upcharge for the atmosphere and reputation. Not worth prices on food alone.

Enjoyable evening on the patio with good service and fun cocktails. We were taken with the flights of appetizers and Tundra's riff on paella. Tundra has a boho feel with ice sculptures on display in the dining room. It's a gem among Las Olas restaurants--many of which offer mostly bar food.

Went on a pleasant Thursday evening and ate outside under a canopy, Ice sculptures and interesting lighting added to the experience. Ordered Sexy Cesar Salad and it was awesome and was enough for two. I like scallops but didn't care for the Fennel dusting it came with. Kevin, our sharp waiter informed me everything was cooked to order. The scallops were seared and mist on the inside, the sauce was favorable and again there was too much food. My partner had a Seafood combination she loved and she requested a doggy bag to go.


We will return!!

Had the ahi tuna salad here for lunch and it was one of the best salads that I've ever had. The tuna was seared to perfection and the slaw was seasoned perfectly. A wonderful dining experience.
