“Service was terrible but food still good....”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

My friend and I dined here a few nights ago. We're from NYC but come here every year on vacation because we love the food. We had a totally different experience this year. We placed a very simple order - 2 orders of twin lobster tails, side orders of mashed potatoes and mushrooms. When the food arrived, only 1 order of twin lobster tails arrived and that was placed in front of me and the mashed potatoes were placed in front of my friend. Seriously? Do you really think they ordered a side of mashed potatoes for their entree? I told the server that they forgot one entree and he immediately blamed the kitchen. He said they thought it was a duplicate order. Ok, where's the communication? While waiting for the other entree to arrive, I started to eat one of my twin lobster tails and noticed that it was lukewarm and so was the butter. I tried the mashed potatoes and mushrooms and they were on the cold side too. By the time I alerted my server once again, my friends twin lobster tails arrived but they took back everything else. So now I'm sitting there with nothing and my friend is eating their entree. When everything came back out again, the food was still not hot. At his point the manager Chris came over and I explained everything to him. They did end up buying us dessert and talking off 50% of the bill.....but I don't go out looking for discounts. I just want my order placed the right way. Also, they didn't provide serving spoons for our side dishes nor did anyone come and refill our water glasses. The service that night was horrendous. But the food is still very good.

“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The food and the service was absolutely great! I had a steak, and I must say that it was one of the best steaks I have had recently.

Also, the staff are wonderful. They are friendly and attentive. I would most certainly go back, and would have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant.

“Supreme Prices For A + Supreme Dining Experience”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

This is an absolutely great restaurant if one is seeking The Best in terms of food quality and service in Ft. Lauderdale.

If someone is looking for 'Dollar Deals', where perhaps outstanding quality of food and personal service is not the top priority, then an alternative destination may be a better choice.

At first glance, this restaurant appears top end pricey, yet the overall dining experience was superb and a true delight from arrival to departure that negated any possible price/quality issues.

Great and caring people - along with overall ambience always sets the mood.
( Thank you, Clement )

The steak offerings were numerous, yet the quality of the end product was an experience seldom lived.
The 'Sides' appeared to be aggressively priced, yet once our waiter explained they could be shared by either 2-3-4 people, it was more than acceptable..
The wine menu is diverse, but also priced fairly.

In summation, if you are looking for a great dining experience, Shula's will not disappoint.
