    Very nice restaurant in the heart of Mary Brickell. Upstairs dining offers great view of skyline and is both romantic and great for groups. Food was good and the appetizers are as big as any you would pay for at another similar venue. Only disappointment was the downstairs lounge. Was empty at 11 pm, which is confusing as the place closes at 1 am. Next time will come later and see if the crowd arrives then.

    We came out to celebrate a birthday/ girls night out and this place was a perfect fit. The outside seating is awesome, it was raining and we were still able to have dinner outside. The food was delicious, ambience was great and there is a lounge downstairs where we hung out for a few after dinner.

    The eclectic menu ranges from eggplant terrine to spring rolls to slow-cooked short ribs. Almost everything tasted home-made and you could tell it was prepared with love and care for the food. The "world's best serrano ham croquettes" were indeed very good, although my Spanish aunt would challenge that title. Service was very kind. The place's decor was not in my taste, but there is nothing technically wrong with it, seats were comfortable and the tables well set. The outdoor furniture, instead, looked cheap. Overall a very good experience. Went with clients, who loved it.

    I give it medium rating. Overall, both the food and service were good but my visit was wrought with challenges. First, the server didn't know what cut of meat was used in their Brascatta. Menu says steak when asked what cut, I was told breast. Second, I had the swordfish. Absolutely, delicious by the way. The problem is the dish came with asparagus. The chef didn't remove the fibrous parts and I had to remove then from my mouth. also, I couldn't eat a few pieces that I believe mistakenly fell back on my plate. Those pieces were too hard to even bite. The third incident is not worth mentioning. Ultimately, Nice place. Nice staff. Unfortunate incidents.

    "Dolores..." was a very pleasant surprise. The service was excellent. The food was very good and the patio on the roof facing north was fairly quiet wth a great view of downtown Miami. The front of the restaurant is right across the street from a very loud outdoor bar. If you want to have a conversation, don't sit outside in front. Way, way too loud.

    The staff at Dolores makes everything better. The manager went out of his way to seat us where we wanted to be and our waitress (Natasha) was fun, informative and attentive. The food was good and there is an air of creativity in the dishes. I think at some point the menu and prep will need an overhaul as there wasn't anything that really stood out taste-wise. I agree with other diners that sitting outside along the rail is the best spot in the house. The view is interesting and for us, the weather was perfect. A great evening with wonderful ambiance. Deserves everything Zagat said about it.

    If you go asked to be seated on the second floor outdoor patio. Try the tuna tacos. They are outstanding and a real value at $18. a free appetizer is included with every meal. A terrific spot for dinner in Mary Brickell Village

    I was actually pleasantly surprised with their good customer service. They actually held our table reserved for 6 while our rest of the party arrived, which were late at least 30 min. Good food, good service, nice decor and clean bathrooms. The dining area outside in the 2nd floor terrace is the best and we were lucky we got a table there - beautiful view and nice summer breeze!

    We chose it solely because it was convenient to our hotel, but were more than satisfied with the experience. We went early and were almost the only ones in the place, so I can't tell if it's a mob scene later and if everyone gets the great service we received. Our waiter recommended huevos rotos and serrano ham croquettes as appetizers and they were excellent - BTW an appetizer is included with the price of an entree; there is also a patio and light night menu which is mostly appetizers. The tuna with bok choy and fried ginger was really good, the short ribs equally so. We had drinks for dessert, though the menu looked tempting.

    Had reservations for 7pm. Waited with my party for 20 mins to be seated. Requested inside but seated outside by waiters' station. Ordered a Guiness but "out of". Management in general seemed disorganized. Waiter was nice and attentive but needs better command of the language. Good food though. Should hire better looking hosting and staff IMHO. Two big parties right out of Hialeah but not the restaurant's fault.

    After arriving on time to our 8:45 reservation, the hostess (whom was extremely rude) informed us that there were no available tables due to a party going on upstairs. She told us we could sit outside on the patio. After discussing this with the other in my party, she told us it was first come, first served. The hostess then tried to explain to us that just because we have a reservation doesn't guarantee a table. So, what was the point in making a reservation. Thank you for wasting my time Lolita's!

    Good food, great ambiance noise level isn't too bad, only issue was that I didn't feel like I was getting the high-end table service I was paying for , at 18-25$ entrees i expected to be more attended to, poured my own water multiple times , asked twice for a black napkin and never got it. This type of service seems to be the norm here, been several times and it's the same 3 star service every time.

    While the food was delicious, and the ambiance was phenomenal, I was very disappointed by the lack of efficiency of our waitress. When we sat down it took a while for her to make her way over and once she did she seemed flustered and unprepared to be working outside on the patio. Our food was timely but she forgot to bring us silverware, and when asked only brought one set instead of the necessary two. The food was delicious, and well timed but then it took about 30 minutes to get her attention to receive our bill. I would strongly recommend some more rigorous training for the younger waitstaff to make sure they are able to handle the high volume of people that frequent this place.

    This is a gem of a restaurant in Brickell! We sat on the rooftop which was more lively without being too loud, and had a nice view of some of the city. With a group of 10, you expect the service to take longer but it didnt- our waiter Miguel was on top of it, and our food and drinks came out in no time! There is a great selection depending on what you're looking for: steak, tuna, italian..there's something for everyone. And every entree comes with an appetizer of your choice. The prices here are great, much more reasonable than most places in Miami. And at $15 a bottle of wine in Miami, you really can't beat it! I highly recommend.

    I was disappointed. I have been there before and had a great time. This time was thoroughly disappointing. The drinks at the bar downstairs were awful!!! So bad that when I went upstairs I told the waitress if the drinks come from downstairs... no thanks! We had two waitresses... and it felt like none! I had 2 unexpected guests arrive when I asked for chairs they never assisted me saying that they had to "ask the manager". They never asked the manager. I ended up finding the chairs myself for my guests. I couldn't have been more embarrassed by their lack of professionalism and service. I will never celebrate my birthday there again. The food is average... It used to be above average not anymore...

    I came here with my husband for dinner. Note: I am allergic to sugar and gluten. I wanted the caprese salad without parmesan. I was told it already came prepared and the parmesan couldn’t be removed. The same thing was true for the gazpacho. I asked for it without bread and was advised there are pieces of bread in the soup, so I opted for the burrata salad and "I can't believe it's not pasta.” Unfortunately, the salad lacked the flavor I'm used to, as I normally purchase burrata from Publix and it's so delicious, but the Dolores salad was just "alright." However, the non-pasta dish of string zucchini was very flavorful and filling. I do recommend this plate! The customer service was fantastic, and my hubby loved his short rib lasagna.
