    What a beautiful interior this restaurant has, very modern yet inviting rather than cold. My party was seated in a booth, which was roomy and comfortable. The menu had a nice variety of options, and we all ordered something different, with each of being pleased with our choices. Ours was a birthday celebration and the writing of the celebrant's name on the desert plate was a nice, special touch.

    City Hall is a consistent, up beat restaurant that is affordable, reliable, convenient, with a varied menu and a solicitous staff. The steaks could be a little better, the drinks a little cheaper, the sense of being hustled a bit less, but in an area where finding a great deal can be difficult, City Hall provides a good compromise; a good meal in a nice, buzzy environment, where management wants you to be happy. What is good greatly outweighs what is not. The more we go, the more we find to like.

    Despite the reservation, we had to wait to be seated for over 30 minutes. We had to wait several times for our drink orders and dessert took another 30 minutes to arrive and then wasthe wrong order. The food was great and the atmosphere very nice and condusive to group conversations. Fun night, good food but the service should have been better.

    We have been here several times for a late lunch and found it a very good experience. The menu has been interesting with the food tasty and the prices reasonable. This time we ordered from the Miami Spice menu. My wife thought the wings were very good and finally had the fried chicken and gave it high marks. I had a hummus appetizer which was OK; it could have been kicked up to make it tastier. The salmon salad was outstanding. Deserts were good as well but we would have done better to just share one rather than overeat.

    Dinner with friends was pleasant. Server was attentive. Additionally the manager stopped by to make sure everything was satisfactory. Restaurant was not crowded, had there been more people the quiet conversation would not have been possible. This is an energetic place with a bar. this was our first visit but will not be our last.

    We were a party of 6 decided to go to City Hall based on friends recommendation and the great choices on the Spice Menu. We arrived at 8 and were seated by 8:15. Four of us had the Spice Menu. The spinach salad was very good, dressing was light and tasty. The Veal Chop was great cooked just right, and the bread pudding desert really good. One of the best values in terms of spice menus. The service was good a bit surprised by the automatic 20% put on the check. Valet parking $5 behind the restaurant.

    The restaurant is down a ways from the city and the action. The tables are very close together, so you hear everything from the tables near you but barely hear the people you're with. It was very noisy. The service try to squeeze through tiny spots and constantly hit your chair without acknowledgement or apology. Get a booth if possible. Our waiter attempted to add 20% gratuity, claiming that a 5 month old baby counted as the sixth. He was slow with his service and pushy. He was not helpful and impatient while ordering. Although seeing him interact with just couples was completely different. Most likely because he didn't think his tip was guaranteed from them. The experience could have been better.

    Do go there unless you are promised a table in the front room. The back room is dark and ugly and the noisiest place I have ever been. There was entertainment, but it did not come near the back room. It was one of the worst experiences I have ever had at a meal.

    Went with my husband and ordered from the Miami Spice dinner menu --- it did not disappoint! There is a nice variety of choices, ranging from seafood to steaks. The swordfish steak with the crabmeat topping was especially good. Service is always spot-on as well - the server was always available and there at the right time, but not intrusive. Also a fun selection of cocktails, with a generous pour.

    Carlo Luis was an excellent waiter. He was always available yet never interrupted our conversation. My daughter and I enjoyed our dinner and the special butter with bread added to a quite pleasant eventing. The drink list was very interesting and we enjoyed the City Clerk cocktail. We ordered the Steak medium rare and it was prepared exactly to our request. The Veal Chop was wonderful and I am still dreaming the flavors. The manager visited our table three different times throughout the evening to make sure we had everything we wanted. The service could not have been better. Thanks to all who work there for treating us so special.

    I coordinated a lunch for an out of the country friend. 2 who live in Broward, another one in the grove and myself. I chose the restaurant for the food but also for the location and parking. I dine here quite often. The service can be spotty at times. Not last Thursday. Alex (been working with Steve over 6 yrs) was very friendly, knowledgeable & accommodating. He also did a great job of taking a couple of group photos of our reunion. Thanks again for everything!!

    My friends and I have always enjoyed eating at City Hall. The food is different and very good, the staff is always friendly and the service is fast. We didn't have the luxury of "dining" this time because we were going to a show at the Arsht Center. However, the hamburger and turkey burgers were divine. City Hall is our go to restaurant when we go downtown.
