Once again, the entire staff at The Plaza Bistro made for an amazing night under the stars!. The breeze on this August night was so pleasant as we sat with soft lights,under the pergola enjoying the company of friends. We had cocktails,wine, appetizers and fantastic entrées. Orlando, Juan and our very professional waiter Franz made our evening so special. I can not recommend this restaurant enough. We will be back!

We ended up eating at this restaurant 3 times during our stay in Ft. Lauderdale. The food is great, so are the prices and the staff very friendly. The outside surroundings makes up the perfect atmosphere for a great dinner experience. The best restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale after my opinion.

The Plaza Bistro represents a unique dining experience. My partner and I were here on a sticky hot summer evening. To me, that was the one major flaw. The lack of any indoor dining options left us vulnerable to the elements....Heat, Humidity, Wind blowing things off your table, and Mosquitos! Otherwise, the experience was most pleasant. Wine selection was nice and affordable. Dinner was overall pretty good.
I would go back, but probably during the winter/ spring when the climate is more suitable to eating outdoors.

My family of four decided to try this place on a holiday weekend hoping it wouldn't be too overcrowded. Much to our surprise, we had no problem getting a table (which worried us a little at first). The atmosphere was great, all outdoor dining but had fans to keep cool. The wait staff was prompt and courteous and the food was great. My wife is a very picky eater and she thoroughly enjoyed the lasagna. We also enjoyed a nice bottle of wine with our meal. My girls are also picky eaters, and they enjoyed their meal as well. The entertainment of a guy playing an electronic keyboard set up on an painted steel piano was awesome. The prices for our meals are in line with what you would expect to pay in a "tourist" town on a holiday weekend. Especially considering what we paid for a breakfast brunch at our hotel, but that's for another review. Our overall experience was great and would go back without hesitation. What a great concept for a restaurant.

As locals we've eaten here before without major issues. This last time over the holiday weekend was a nightmare we won't be returning to.

Place was not packed which is strange for 7:00 on a Friday evening.
Tables sticky and strangely arranged.
Water tasted like lead.
Oddly the GM took our order but never returned?
Ordered guacamole and chips; took 25 minutes and was delivered nachos. Sent nachos back and received bland quacamole with chips from a bag...
Entrees took another 30+ minutes. Steaks were tough served with a tastless oil? Flat bread mushy and not tasty.
No one ever came back to check on us the entire night.
Entertainment consisted of a clown girl, a stripper standing in the middle of a table, piano player and fire dancer. Nothing was ever explained in regards to the entertainment; it was unorganized and stupid (the exception being the fire dancer).
We asked for our bill twice; it never came.
Ended up walking out leaving cash on the table.
