Diner Reviews
  • "the restaurant experiance and the service was outstanding . the only issue i had was that the miami spice menu that was published wasn't the one offered at the restaurant and it wasn't that they didn't have the menu items because they offerred them as a- la cart menu items . that made me feel like we were bait and switched.But all said . it was a nice experiance"

  • "I went for the Miami Spice Dinner with 2 friends. We all had an excellent meal with great service. The Chef came over to greet us which added a nice touch. We would all return. The room is beautiful. We had a very nice evening. Roz"

  • "From the hostess to the servers, every one was friendly and welcoming. We sat outside and enjoyed the view. Once the food arrived, a couple of flies lurked around and became constant pests. Of course the waiter tried to kill them which took away just a little bit from the evening. However, the romantic dinning experience was well worth it. I will definitely go back with friends, not just my husband. Great dinning experience."

  • "AQ delivers excellant food and great service in an elegant setting. We went to dinner with a group of four. The special appetizer of fresh figs, proscuitto and mikd goat cheese was a perfect start. We each enjoyed three courses and loved it all. The seafood bucatini pasta was especially excellant, grouper was light and delicous and the filet was great. The new executive chef has created a delicous menu. There is an emphasis on using fresh ingredients with a very nice use of herbs and flavors. We also really enjoyed the service and quiet atmosphere. We have a condo nearby and will definitely return."

  • "After a nice experience celebrating my wife's birthday mid-May, our second visit was quite the opposite. Suffice it to say management attentiveness, service and the timing of meals coming out of the kitchen left something to be desired. Difficult to explain how two in our party were served their entree while the other four were served 15 - 20 minutes later. Wine service was no better. Management was apologetic and offered free dessert. Great...but it consisted of a community plate with four smallish desserts while we were a party of six???"

  • "Friendly service. Food was tasty. Cocktails were overpriced. The policy of adding gratuity to the bill was a bit unusual in that they added it and then taxed it."

  • "The place is beautiful and the menu sounds good but just in paper. The service is not trained to explain the plates and forgets what is for who, Also they were rushing us to leave before dessert. The food does not taste so good."

  • "Food and ambience are perfectly matched. A very beautiful place for a special occasion or just a relaxing time catching up with a friend. Great menu with a variety of tasty creations, and extensive wine list that could please most of the discerning palates."

  • "No surprise: Chef Dewey LoSasso's arrival at Aqualina has upped the class and fare at this previously ho-hum location. Chef Dewey's inventive and succulent menu is truly worth the drive from any distance."

  • "BOTH FOOD AND SERVICE WERE TERRIBLY POOR. The entrees we ordered came all wrong, after having waited for 90 minutes, and nobody apologzed for the inconvenience. We had a terribly bad experience dinig al AQ Aqualina. Also unfortunately there was a power failure at the time we were dining at the restaurant, it seems is was a power failure of the whole Sunny Isles area, but nobody came to tell us what was happening. There were no emergency lights, we just waited in the dark until pople form the stuff appeared with candles. Due to this power failure, an alarm kept saying for at least 30 minutes that all the people should leave the building, but nobody came to tell us if we should do so, or what to do. It vas a TERRIBLY BAD EXPERIENCE. "

  • "Can you beat the view at AQ? I think not. It is only surpassed by Chef Dewey's wonderful as always cuisine and culinary inventiveness. There are always surprises on his menus, yet the items manage to complement each other and do not fight for attention. The service was friendly and in no way stuffy. Don't let all of the Rolls and Bentleys parked outside deter you! This is, after all, Miami Beach. Prices were entirely reasonable for the meal we had. Had a cocktail made with gin and lavender--who would have thought?!"

  • "Beautiful setting and very good service. We wanted a NY Strip and even though it wasn't on the menu they said they could make us one. We were presented with a very small, overly cooked (ask for medium rare) previously frozen steak that looked like it was purchased from the local super market. We thought since we were in an up scale hotel that they would anticipate the same from the guests. Not so apparently."

  • "Very nice setting and good food.Very limited wine list . Unfortunately if you are looking for the special night out in a semi formal setting the restaurant is part of the hotel and there are lots of young kids and very informally dressed patrons."
