The Sun-Sentinal Raves: Eating Here, You've Got it Made!
Ever notice how visitors to South Florida want to eat with a water view? They'd do no better than at GG's! The servers are professionals who know a thing or two about service.
GG's menu may be best described as classic steak and seafood meets modern South Florida. I can't say enough about their bouillabaisse, which includes a half Maine lobster along with clams, mussels, scallops, shrimp and calamari in a classic saffron tomato broth. And it takes a real talent in the kitchen to pair
Red meat is a good choice. New Zealand lamb chops are marinated in herbs and citrus, and come off the grill wonderfully tender.
You can start with shrimp cocktail, or raw oysters, tuna tartare with kimchi and sesame or spring rolls filled with grilled chicken and roasted vegetables. There's a fine Tiramisu on the dessert menu, but the real star is the unconventional Napoleon which starts with Phyllo dough instead of puff pastry, and gets classic cream filling topped with fresh berries and preserves.

We dove into a generous bowl of Prince Edward Island mussels in an aromatic sauce of white wine, garlic and fresh thyme with a splash of citrus... another GG's keeper, Garden of Eden flatbread, its snappy crust laden with grilled zucchini, yellow squash and red bell peppers and Kalamata olive slices, complemented by a pesto spread and a dusting of feta.
The stand-out entree was a seafood risotto special that easily could have feed two - a feast of a Maine Lobster half, plump shrimp, pan-seared scallops and calamari with short-grain rice to soak up the sea-salty juices.
... the pan-seared sea bass was rich and moist, set atop sauteed baby spinach and plated with roasted tomato and basil aioli. Meat and potato choices include center-cut pork chops brightened by a shitake-cognac sauce... GG's is already a place for good times, gorgeous sunsets, and of course, a little romance.
Service was phenomenal. Our waiter was incredibly friendly and was always checking on us to make sure everything was satisfactory. He could tell how much we enjoyed the food as he took a look at our clean plates and said “Wow I can see you didn’t like anything!
They have a nice waterfront patio & bar area where we were hanging out for most of the time. The bartenders I interacted with were all cool and made some good drinks and when they had to cook up 150+ dishes at once (for our holiday party), my filet came out perfectly cooked, juicy & delicious.
This is one of our favorite places to dine along the shore. Fabulous bars both inside and out under the stars! Dining space also both in & out overlooking the Intracoastal. Food is wonderful - especially the seafood. There’s a paella served over orzo rather than rice and a bouillabaisse that would feed a family! The simple fish preparations are light and fresh. Service is unobtrusive but attentive. You cannot go away unimpressed.
Indeed, the couple (Dan and Lise-Anne Serafini) who partnered in East Side Mario’s in Aventura Mall replaced 14 years of Greek flair and fare with casual American elegance. “We’ve taken a lot of what Giorgio’s was and transformed it to more approachable dining on the waterfront,’’ said Dan Serafini.
Gone are the rounded Greek columns, traditional artwork, a painted sky blue ceiling and a nightclub dance floor. Now, the place brings the outside indoors by emphasizing rustic wood, vanilla walls, cool lighting and black-and-white photographs depicting the beach, Hollywood broadwalk and Dania Pier.
