    Nice to be in a place where the food is reliably very good, and the corporate mantra is "no problem." Big drinks, big portions, reasonable prices, and classy environment. Won't disappoint.

    Overall, food was a good, solid take on some traditional plates, but nothing spectacular; some dishes too sweet, some without much flavor (duck confit pizza). Iceberg wedge salad was nice, Bread with maple butter was fantastic, service was attentive - a bit noisy when we arrived (must have been pre-show), but died down throughout the meal as show-goers filtered out.

    The most fun I've had at brunch in a looong time. Nice atmosphere and really great energy. Loved the omelet and the chocolate chip pancake (especially the fact that I can order just one). Speaking of chocolate chip, city hall boasts hands down the BEST chocolate chip cookie I've ever sunk my teeth into. It's $7 and WORTH IT! I wish I could eat them everyday.

    Restaurant was very crowded and they kept squeezing even more people by changing the direction of the tables. One table for 2 was changed to a table for 3 by rotating the table 90 degrees. It was so crowded that we had to move our table in order to get out when we were leaving. Good food and service, but I won't go back.

    We made reservation several days before coming here. We had tickets to Cinderella at Arsht, so we figured reservations would keep us from waiting for a table. Well, no one was waiting because City Hall opened up an extra room to accommodate everyone that wanted to eat. What this did was slow down service for everyone. Our service was SO slow, and we waited almost an hour for our food from the time we ordered. We had to wait quite some time for our drinks as well. Things finally slowed down at the end of our meal, but by that time, we were almost late to the show. The side room was extremely smokey, and my request for a booth was ignored. The food and drinks were good, but I'll think twice next time before going pre-show.

    All of the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Luis, our waiter, did an outstanding job of serving our party. The only down side was the that the noise level was very high which made having conversations very challenging.

    Everytime I come home my first reservation will be to City Hall. From the maple butter and bread that welcomes you with warm, sweet goodness to the amazing crab cake, to the succulent shrimp that line your plate with the amazing dishes, to the desserts that finish off a meal like the last brushstroke of a masterpiece, City Hall is where it is!

    This is one of our favorite places for brunch; as a matter of fact we go every week, it is a tradition for us. The food is delicious and the staff is warm, friendly and always available for our every need without us having to speak the words, they are great. The ambience is charming, feels like art deco lives!

    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.

    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.
