“Shhhh! Our favorite restaurant in Fort Lauderdale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

My wife and I just enjoyed another incredible dining experience at the Secret Garden at Pillars Hotel. The food was great, the service was awesome and the wine list is impressive. The Secret Garden has everything but crowds.

“Some Enchanted Evening...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

It is difficult to imagine a more beautiful setting for a dinner in the summertime. And it is difficult to imagine a better preparation of an appetizer of summer peaches, and an entree of lamb chops than were presented at the Secret Garden. The service was exquisite - attentive, but unobtrusive; the setting, on the water as the sun set, was enchanting; and the food was superb.

Not a place for family...but for a romantic dinner? Tough to find anything to match...

“Old style setting, very good food, excellent view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

I felt like I was a Hollywood star, excellent dining on a "dock" at the waters edge. Attentive service until it got crowded. Food was very good, I had the chanced the venison and it was rich and tasty, not gamey. Be sure to go when you can see the sun setting.

...and on the dock by the water, watching the sun set and the boats travel back and forth in the Intracoastal Waterway - what more could you ask for??
