We went to Etaru’s Sunday Brunch for Father’s Day and it was phenomenal. The brunch is worth every penny. I believe it’s $58 per adult and you get a cocktail on arrival and wine till your entree arrives which you may upgrade to champaign. The entree is not served till you request it so it gives you ample time to enjoy your drinks. They also bring every starter they offer to the table before hand and then a large amount of dessert at the end. The setting is gorgeous and the staff is wonderful and the restaurant does a great job of keeping ppl socially distant and enforcing masks.

It’s really gone down hill. Sad because this restaurant when it started as Hyde was amazing. Then etaru was pretty good just pricy. Now it’s just low quality and poor service. Location is gorgeous such a shame.

We eat at Etaru twice a month and it never lets us down. The view, ambience, and food are exceptional. The Yellowfin tuna tataki is the best tuna dish that I have ever experienced, hands down!!

Great ambiance, service and food! We have only gone in the evening and it's lovely. We look forward to going for brunch. If you like margaritas with a kick, the Rita Okinawa is delicious.

We had asked for a table outside but they did not have this information so we were seated inside. Guess I should not rely on that type of request to be added in the comment section. Otherwise all was great.

Nothing special. Put us at a table in the back and it was so noise we couldn’t hardly talk. We went because it was on the ocean but they put us in the back.

Great food - the burrata with tomatoes was delicious. We had steak, Brandi no and salmon for entrees and all were nicely presented and so good and fresh. The corn with lime has a nice Latin kick to it. The asparagus was so delish. Our food came right away and waitresses were very attentive. The wine we had which is Illino Malbec was just right one for our meal. Our dessert was excellent with mochi balls arranged in a block of dry ice and a dark chocolate lava cake with pear ice cream to die for. What lol definitely be back. Lovely place, music could have been softer but not an issue. Very impressive place with great ambience.

Located on the beach, it's a rarity to find cool dining places where you can eat to the sound of the waves rolling onshore. The food was overall tasty with nice presentation, though their fish and seafood dishes went over better than their meat dishes. We went on a cool, breezy night, which they seemed ready to handle with heaters and blankets, though they needed more heaters than they had to accommodate all the diners. The menu prices are surprisingly high given it's in Hallandale Beach (more like South Beach/Design District level - including the valet), but the ambiance, service and cuisine make it a chill destination for special events (birthday, anniversary), hot date, or a "girls" night out.

Upon arrival, service was extremely slow. The table was not dressed and we waited over 30
Minutes after being seated, to be served water. After speaking to the manager, I believe her name was Dascha, she made sure we received the best service. The food was great, the buffet was always fresh and replenished. The ambiance and view is beautiful. I would definitely return, probably with a smaller party.

We found ourselves asking for water many times as they wouldn’t refill often. Our waitress also wasn’t in our area most of the time and we couldn’t find her. We didn’t receive great service but it wasn’t terrible. It’s just frustrating to wait 10 minutes every time you want to ask for a minor thing. We didn’t order dessert because we didn’t wanna wait so long for her to come and take the order. She was nice but quite absent.

Everything was great, only bad thing is found a staple in the oysters. Was able to spit it out without cutting my mouth. Ruined an otherwise great experience.

Unfortunately, this time was the worst! I’ve been going to this restaurant ever since it as opened. I’m a regular client! Really don’t know what happened but I had the worst service ever, and I was ALONE! The server was very nice when I arrived. But after that everything went wrong! Ordered an appetizer took not long to have but Received my Entree was still eating my appetizer! Got my cocktail 45 min after I order amd ordered it at the beginning when I arrived. Had to ask for it while I was still eating my appetizer! No one ever came back to see if everything was fine ! Asked for water 2 times to a boss boy and waiter never got it! My plates stayed on my table finished ! No one took time out of my way while I finished my cocktail! Asked for the bill and even then the plates stayed there while I was paying. If it would of been the first time I had been there I would of never went back! Don’t know what happened that night but I hope won’t ever happen again , cause really love this place :). Please , the managers, make sure that you make a follow up on your staff cause i was not the only one unsatisfied that night , being alone I had plenty of time to see what was happening around me! Will be back but hope never to experience this again!

Our waitress had an attitude. When I asked her to please check on one of the missing or late dish that had the other 5 people waiting she LECTURED me saying the restaurant’s policy was to serve the food as soon as cooked and that was that, she didn’t have to check. I insisted she checked and she insisted she didn’t have to. I’m talking about a 20+ young woman talking to me a Senior Citizen Lady. I took it as a disrespect. And we still had to wait for the one late dish. If she has a problem with customers’s requests she should not be working there. By the way I’m a local resident, this was not our first time at this restaurant and our check was over $400.

We decided to go there to celebrate our son’s birthday. Since we already have been to Zuma a couple of times, we decided to try something different. The food option was terrible. You could choose among Sushi 1,2,3 and 4. Also you could get 4 type of Sashimis. Very disappointing with the option. Instead of focusing on free wines, they should offer more food options.

Service were very poor also. One waiter that belonged to another sector came many times to help and apologized. We ordered 4 hot plates, one for each person and mine and my daughter came 15 minutes after my wife and son without any explanation.

It is sad to say, but the experience was terrible and I don’t recommend it.

High quality ingredients, great venue, woefully inadequate service. Waiter didn't remember some of the things ordered. Didn't check on the table enough. Expensive tomahawk steak and filet came cold. Have had the same experience here several times, but it's close and Monkitail is booked so we keep falling into this trip. Because the service is so slow, an hour meal takes over two to get through.
