    From the moment we arrived, host and servicc were pretentious. Low uncomfortable table and chairs. No matter how you turn the table a leg is in your way. Lighting was bright. Food was ok, expected more. We were both unimpressed and would not return or recommend. Prefer Il Gabbiano across the river.

    The food is consistently very good to excellent. A simple menu where the chef gets everything right. You can't go wrong whether your ordering pastas, meat or fish dishes. While the wait staff is very well trained, certain waiters don't make all guests feel particularly welcomed.

    Great Food, Great Service, but very Uncomfortable seating. I feel like i sat in a kiddie table - but i was sitting in a typical table at Cipriani! The Chairs are also very uncomfortable, as they make it awkward to sit back. I wont return unless they upgrade the seating and tables.

    See and be seen hang out, set in very beautiful and luxurious surroundings, what could be one of Miami's greatest disappoints with poor service, long wait times, overly pricey menu, very average food quality, and choice. In an establishment charging about $100.00 per person (before the wine) for mediocre run of the mill italian cuisine, is it acceptable to wait over 30minutes for your previously booked table? Can you bear pasta and tomato sauce for over $25? You wallet is clearly the target in this overrated spot, with no consideration for the clientele.

Delicious fish entree. Beautiful restaurant inside and great view. Service was good. Veal chop and sea bass for dinner are winners

    3rd time @ Cipriani...maybe the last one !! Poor food presentation (I can go to a "trattoria" for the same presentation and spend 1/3). Food quality not accord with a "supposedly" 5 start restaurant; however service was impeccable as usual. Miami Spice menu is a joke: they give you low quality food...don't choose that option you will be highly disappointed

  • Overpriced! not a good Miami Spice
    Traveller
    Dined on 8/18/2014
    Way overpriced! They really don't want to participate in Miami Spice? Miami Spice menu is just 1 appetizer, 1 entree, 1 desert, and all very plain presentation. The carpaccio is really good, as well as dessert, but the sea bass, very small plate, and taste wise nothing special. Not worth the price AT ALL. Service was very rude! We asked about the Sea bass in the Miami Spice menu, and the waiter answer was just: "oh, that's just the Miami Spice menu..." like it was a sin to order it... Corkage fee: $60.. Our mistake for not asking in advance of course...We were 4, and we ordered 2 miami spice menus and 2 regular menu items, and the check was $277!! Really? Not worth it!! I've had much better meal, and service in other restaurants...

    finickyfoodieVIP

    There are not many restaurants in Miami that have a beautiful water view. Cipriani certainly does have a great view of the mouth of the Miami River. The decor is gorgeous - blue, white, and chrome. Reminiscent of a grand Italian oceanliner. Really beautiful. I was underwhelmed by the food, as it was rather bland and uneventful. Baby Artichoke salad was simple. The Rigatoni bolognese was very oily, the calves liver was overcooked, and the tiramesu was pedestrian. Scarpetto at Fountainebleu is far better for upscale Italian food.

    It is a very pretty restaurant. The service we received that night was wonderful. We were initially seated at a table for four (4 chairs) and we asked if we could be moved to a table (also for 4) with different type chairs and a sofa since the chairs and table of initial seating although gorgeous were ill fit, your knees are uncomfortably squeezed under the table. They politely and efficiently heard our request and seated us. We had the carpaccio, Chilean sea bass and merengue dessert. The food was good, straightforward. I am a minimalist but I think the dishes could be presented in a more aesthetic way. I see myself returning to Cipriani.
