A word from Front Porch Cafe
The story of Ocean Drive is everchanging, but our
neighborhood spot has remained the same
for more than 20 years as a laid back
classic & memorable Home- cooked experience.

Breakfast all day with superb
French toast was our introduction to this restaurant. It was so good that we were back for lunch and dinner. Happy hour is a special treat with delicious half price appetizers and drinks."

Both my friend and I ordered what
was labeled as a 'salad' however it was nothing like a salad we've ever seen. It could well have been ignorance on my part but the ceviche 'salad' was small, with no 'salad-like' items in it. My friend ordered octopus which was tough and burnt and came with chick peas only, again no 'salad-like' items. They were happy to change my order but to a 'real' salad, however, I think it's reasonable to assume others could make this same mistake, so it might be an idea to change the menu description. Also, the outside tables were dimly lit, so it was hard to read the menu in the first place."

I do not give 5 star because it
took more than 10 minutes since we seat in the table for someone to come n greet us.we felt lost there at the begining and we almost leave and my friend fish was not cooked the way she liked it and had to be taken back to the kitchen to be re cook again even though she told the waiter she liked it well cooked and deep fried.other than that the rest of the evening went well and the waiter his service was ok."

Were surprised that we had the
place to ourselves on a Saturday night in Miami Beach! Very few patrons when we were there! The food was good and our server was very nice."

Head chef is great and came to our
table. Restaurant was out of plantains, which was a bummer. Veggie lasagna was made from scratch and took a long time but the chef brought out a complementary appetizer."

They lost me when the apps came
with over cooked rice. Friends dinner came with coconut rice but they served white (again over cooked) rice. We let the waiter know it should have come with coconut rice and he insisted that it was coconut rice (ridiculous). Friends dinner also came with plantain chips which we were not served and had to ask for."

We were here last August and loved
it! We ate the first night because it was convinent since we were staying at the hotel, but we ate again because the food was so good. This trip we just had to have dinner again and the chef did not disappoint! This is a hidden gem on Ocean where you get top notch food at reasonable prices. The crispy potatoes are to die for! The home made pickles are very good. Ask to say hello to the chef, Todd; he is a very talented chef and is very personable."

My friend and I opted for Front
Porch because it was reasonable priced, had a decent/eclectic menu and within walking distance. We sat outside, which is nice especially in Miami. It's kind of on a side street across from a souvenir shop, so there isn't much of a view. The service was pretty good, no complaints there. Our food was pretty good too. Not the most memorable meal of our vacation, but it was nice and simple and straight forward. It was a good break for our wallets too!"

I took my two guests visiting from
Spain to the FPC, and they loved the cooking and appreciated the fine service. We shared three different dishes "family style," all of which were fresh, flavorful and and creative renditions of great comfort good classics. The chef took the time to introduce himself, and we appreciated that gesture very much. Our server was also excellent throughout the meal."
