One of my favorite spots in Fort Lauderdale, Valentino is a place for celebrating just about anything or just simply enjoying a wonderful evening in a beautiful setting. The menu changes frequently, but the daily specials (the list is usually so long I have to almost keep notes) are the real gems of this place. Items are largely market-driven and you are always in for a treat no matter what is currently in season. Staff is friendly and attentive, without being intrusive and they will accommodate a quick meal or an occasion to linger if you let them know your desired pace. The bar is fantastic for people-watching and they make an outstanding Manhattan, with housemade bitters. The wine list is strong and the waitstaff and sommelier are well-versed and engaging in helping you make the right selections for your journey.
Whether a romantic evening with your honey, a business dinner or a celebration with friends, Valentino is a great spot to share a great meal.
