    Date night to celebrate ANniversary. First time going here. A nice, cute small place. Greeted well upon arrival. Server Brandon was very nice and helpful. Looked at menu before making reservations and liked quite a few things on the menu. So we get there and want to order the Octopus, server states. " sorry we're out of that, they should've taken it off menu he says. Ok. let's try the bone marrow, server states, sorry we're ouut of that as well. Got the wedge salad which we normally love but this one was a bit different, not bad but just not what we're use to. Wedge was brought out with some other type of dressing, not BLUE CHEESE. I have to say the Lamb chops we're the best thing we ate. Ordered the Diablo mussels over linguine. Was expecting more of a wine based broth, instead it was a very pasty sause, almost like a spagetti sauce. It tasted good but again just not what we expected. They served the mussels and their were at least 8 mussels they served that didn't even open up, yet it was served to us. Well the manager say those in the bowl we left and asked if we wanted more to replace those. We said, no thanks. He was very apologetic and gave us a coupon for 20% off next visit and he only charged us half price for the mussels dish. That was nice of him but the chef should know not to serve UNOPENED mussels. So dessert time. they only offered 2 things, Flan and Brownie with ice cream, Guess what we tried to order? Brownie, sorry we're out of that as well. So 3 strikes on the 3 things we really wanted to try here and now. Overall the people are nice and the place is cute. Just super disappointed, it was a celebration and we were left disappointed.

    The place was not as formal as we thought, compared to the pictures. It seemed less formal and a very small place. The food was alright, doesn’t seem to be anything that stands out, the short rib was good, and eggplant stack was great. The sides are let to be desired, side of vegetables is literally carrots and broccoli steamed. The street corn is supposed to be a bowl but it was on the cob. Everything was ok.

    This place is quite deceiving. You walk into what appears to be, 'just another hipster hangout' with bare concrete floors and basic chairs and tables, but then everything changes. The food is tremendous! The quality of ingredients, and the mastery of the chef and his staff are on full display. We found all our dishes to be superb. The wine list leaves a little to be desired but then again we figure most people are going there for the beer and the cocktails. We will def be back every time we are in the area. We ate there early in the dinner hours, mid week with the place not very busy at all. We have the feeling many people are missing out by not venturing in. We cannor peak highly enough of our experience.

    The food was interesting and mostly very good. The bacon wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates were really delicious, and I’m not a fan of blue cheese. The Brussel sprouts were really good also. We found the short rib very tasty, but also VERY fatty. I’d like to return to try other menu items.

    We had a birthday dinner at Here & Now. Overall it was a great experience! The service was very good and the food was tasty. I wouldn’t suggest this restaurant to an older crowd because the music was loud and catered to a younger crowd.

    The only complaints I have is the Mac and cheese needs more seasoning and I wish the menu was just a little bit bigger. The items they have on the menu are all very appealing and what I did have (truffle Mac and cheese, pork tacos, Buffalo chicken wrap and truffle fries) were all very tasty with the exception of the Mac.

    A potential gem that just needs more polishing. Food was good - on the edge of great. Service was average - on the way to better. Feels like more attention to detail could move them to a better overall experience for customers.

    Food was great but unfortunately they didn’t have any lamb lollipops and they were out of the merlot. It broke my heart and reminded me of the time my dad went to the gas station and said he would be 5 minutes. I never saw him again.

    Great place. Great food. Stumbled upon this place off the beaten path in Ft. Lauderdale. Menu's ONLY by phone/internet which was kind of challenging to read by these old eyes and cell data coverage is not optimum for downloading (took a minute). A high energy, young vibe. I recommend the mussels and bacon wrapped dates.

    Extremely mediocre. I normally don’t write a review, esp after 1x @ a restaurant. We had a rez but decided to sit @ bar. The bartender took 10+ mins to ask us if we wanted water after trying to get her attention. Like the guy sitting next to us said, she had only one expression, sourpuss. When we were seated @ a table bc she was so not interested in seroconversion anyone, they were out of everything we tried to order @9pm. We were told It was a distribution issue. Our waiter Will with the great personality saved the night. It was a comedy of errors. The food that we did eat was very good but the service, besides Will, was subpar. We’ve been told by others that night and since that they had a similar experience.

    Typically we’ve had a very good experience at this restaurant, but they were severely understaffed on this visit and it made the experience less pleasant. Food is still quite good. If the hostess asks if you want to sit at the bar to dine I would recommend doing so. I will go back on a night when the staffing is adequate
