Diner Reviews
  • "We love Jaguar for the scallops and seafood. So delicious. Good service and wine too."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "THE SERVICE WAS GREAT, BUT THE TRAFFIC NOISE PLUS THE TEMPERATURE MADE IT UNCOMFORTABLE. OUR GUESTS SAID THAT THE RESTAURANT WAS TOO NOISY TO SIT INSIDE. NEXT TIME WE WILL SIT INSIDE. i enjoy highly flavored food. The ceviche seemed a bit too mild. More lime and cilantro with hot pepper flakes would have been an improvement, as the fish is so bland. Tell your Saturday Chef to "spice it up.""

  • "We go for the ceviche spoon sampler every time. It's a must try. Brunch is also an excellent deal with a great variety of Latin American dishes. However, the noise level inside is sometimes unbearable. When the weather is dry and sunny, in the dry season months, sitting outside is fantastic, because you get to people watch and enjoy the bohemian atmosphere of the Grove."

  • "Hard to beat price/value, one of the best ceviches I have tried and the parihuela of Mariscos is outstanding!!!! Nice place, good music, fine wine and superb food."

  • "The food was delicious, the variety was a nice change from the typical boring menu most restaurants have. The service, well, truly the staff strived for excellence. They were attentive and made every effort to assure a return visit."

  • "This was our second visit and the food was excellent. The tuna and salmon ceviche were delicious. The salmon entrée was cooked beautifully."

  • "Good food. The ceviche is fresh. The bread pudding tree leches is to die for, it's a must try!"

  • "This restaurant was great. The food was delicious. It was in a great location. At first I was nervous to see where I had chosen to eat but after we saw how popular this location was it was great. There were so many shops/bars around the restaurant."

  • "We have eaten here many times throughout the years since it opened and the restaurant has gone steadily down hill. The plates were not clean, the floor was sticky, and the food was barely edible. I think that was the last time for me."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Spotty service was the downfall here. I'm not really sure who's fault it was. It took forever to even see our server. We sat inside but he was tending to the outside tables about 90% of the time. I'm not sure he was even aware we where there. Perhaps the host failed to tell him? Even after we ordered, things didn't get great. The table next to is with a different server (they ordered about 5 minutes after us) was being served their main course after salads while we were flagging down the food runner to see where our appatizer was. The food was great and our waiter was knowledgable when we saw him. This seemed more like a organization failure so I'm being lenient with our rating. Give the ceviche sampler a shot. You won't be disappointed."

  • "Always have a good experience at Jaguar. Can be somewhat variable at times. When owners are there, which is less and less frequent, it runs more smoothly. We go there with some regularity."

  • "From beginning to end I give Jaguar 5 Stars every time.... We love all the amazing Ceviches you can pick from and all the food! Service is always Great!!! We love love this place!!! Look forward to moving to the Grove so it can be a usual experience!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The service was exceptional and the food and drinks were perfect. Food was served quickly and the we appreciated the originality and preparation of all our dishes. I don't think anyone would be disappointed if they are looking for a pleasant Latin themed lunch."

  • "I was invited to experience Peruvian cuisine at this local and popular restaurant in the Grove .. and would go back in a heartbeat! The food was delicious, service efficient and friendly."

  • "We make a point of going to the Jaguar every time we're in town. It's definitely worth every penny and more!! We've haven't gone wrong with any dish we've tried. The combination of flavors is amazing! We've gone with a large group and with just the two of us and had a great experience!"

  • "Great restaurant with terrific food choices. Definately worth trying."

  • "I was a little bit disappointed that after making a reservation our tables were not set-up for a birthday party as requested. I think they were also having problems with their system and several servers came to our table to ask if we already ordered food. when the food came, servers didn't know who ordered what. Not very professional. Also please note that the restaurant is extremely cold. I've been living in Florida for 14 years and used to the A/C. it was too cold to enjoy a nice dinner. The food was ok. Overall, not fascinated with this place. I will not go back for dinner. Perhaps we will try brunch next time and will definitely sit outside. "

  • "I went to the restaurant based on the recommendation of others and I was not let down. The food was good, the service was great. I even got a gift from the restaurant manager because I went on my birthday! Key Lime Creme Brulee was awesome! Crab cakes fantastic! Everyone had a good time. Just a little noisy otherwise very pleasant and enjoyable."

  • "Service was a bit slow but sangria and pisco sour were good. My table was very happy with ceviche sampler"

  • "We had lunch at Jaguar on Mother's Day so the restaurant was fully packed. We had made a reservation (which just gives you "priority seating") on Open Table and we did not have to wait more than 15 minutes, so we were very satisfied with that. Service was fairly slow, but as I said it was Mother's Day. Our orders came out correctly and the food was delicious. The tuna ceviche was divine, as were the crab cakes. My only minor complaint was I thought the margarita and glass of house wine were pretty expensive at $9.50. On the other hand, I thought the price of the food was very reasonable. Altogether a very pleasant experience! Would probably have rated the visit 5 stars had it not been a holiday and thus very busy and noisy."

  • "Jaguar justified the long way from Broward to Coconut Grove. The menu is a patchwork of great dishes from Peru, Mexico and Brazil. Tiraditos, tacos and "Vitapa" coexist in peace...service is quick and professional and prices won't scare anyone. I made my reservation over the phone and the attention was outstanding. Parking is no a problem because the coco-walk parking lot is just right there and you don't have to deal with valet charges. Overall excellent. "

  • "We went to celebrate our 8 year wedding anniversary and we were sat at a great table where my husband was able to see the TV (the NFL draft was on) and then moved to accomodate a larger party. Then, the main reason we went to Jaguar, to try the ceviche, did not come to fruition as after a 45 minute wait our main course arrived. The ceviche never made it. Very poor service. "

  • "Best Churrasco in town! My daughter and her UM friends come here often for it. I also had a sirloin steak for the daily lunch/dinner special and it was perfectly cooked with a nice LatAm spice and accompanied by a nice portion of tasty rice. Service is top notch. Ceviche Sampler for a table of 4 was a very good appetizer choice along with the free chip and salsa. Over all a great place for lunch, and in this case, a graduation celebration!!"

  • "Jaguar is always and enjoyable evening. Service is good. Food is good. Great place in the Grove."

  • "I hadn't been in some time but I was very happy to be reminded about how good the food is and the service is truly excellent. From the delicious margaritas made with fresh ingredients to the homemade salsa and chips our dinner was off yo s great start. Then we ordered a couple spoons of the ceviche, delicious, distinctly different and a great sized appetizer, I ordered carnitas which was good but huge for me and when I asked to take it home they packed it up and added fresh guacamole plus a whole new order of their super yummy rice and beans. Jaguar has definitely moved up to my top restaurant choices. "

  • "The food was fantastic! Best quesadilla I have ever eaten. "

  • "A fabulous experience where you can enjoy quality fresh food. It was our second visit and I look forward to the next. I like the fact that there is only one Jaguar, it makes it all more special."

  • "Jaguar is my go to ceviche spot. When ever I have people who come into town who want authentic ceviche I bring them here. I also enjoy happy hour complementary spoons."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Jaguar Ceviche Spoon Bar and Latam Grill is a must visit restaurant in The Grove that is always "spot on." Jaguar serves a delicious a variety of freshly prepared ceviches and dishes from around Latin America such as the Mexico City Taqueria Platter, Brasilian Vatapa and Peruvian Chupe de Camaron. various grilled meats, seafood and vegetables, and thirst quenching drinks from a full service bar including Pisco Sour, Caipirinha, mojito, margarita, and house sangria. Happy hour specials include a free ceviche spoon sampler with each drink. Check out their other restaurant in The Grove - Peacock Garden Cafe, between the Sonetsa Hotel and Public Library."

  • "After reading so many good reviews I was waiting for a different style of restaurant. The service was horrible, and the food was ok but nothing to return to. "

  • "This was our second time here. Went during past visit to the Miami area, 2 years ago, and wanted to return. Fun place, nice decor. Family friendly. All items were delicious. Fish was so fresh!! Our table had both Mahi Mahi and Salmon, and both were delicious. Vegetable fried rice dish was wonderful ...peruvian/chinese style, and so flavorful. We have always been happy at this establishment and would return again if we are in the area!"

  • "Ceviche sampler & the tuna - delish!! A bit confusing to get a grilled fish taco, but at the end they just brought me some lettuce to wrap my grilled Mahi Mahi inside- :):)"

  • "The Ceviche Sampler. My wife and I made the unfortunate decision to split one. It really tested our marriage and our devotion to marital equity. You'll want your own. The Baha Fish Tacos were pretty good, too. But I have dreams about the acid cooked fish in those white spoons. Dios Mio!"

  • "Nice evening in Miami - sat outside which may have been a mistake as there is an energetic bar across the street. Ordered the black bean soup - got the lentil, it was tasty but only warm, not hot. Had the shrimp dish - shrimp were a bit overcooked, and again only warm, not hot. Probably not to safe serving temperature. Rice was good - fairly bland ingredients but matched nicely with the sauce from the shrimp. Overall experience warm - not hot. Too many other great places to eat in the area so probably will not return anytime soon."

  • "Even with a "reservation" we sited but the bar is fun and the mango mojitos make it go by quickly. All the food was outstanding. Try the ceviche of course and the grilled octopus was fantastic. Yum!"
