  • Best Mojito in Miami Beach
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/25/2014
    Yea, you heard it. It's the best Mojito in town. Probably it's the low lights, the upscale scenario, the view from Miami Beach at night or the right lounge music at a salty ocean wind. Or they just use nice Bacardi, who knows?!

    The view is nothing to write home about. I have a much better view from my apartment. The ambiance was good but nothing to write home about. I had the lamb and it was overly greasy and it had a bitter taste. The other plates ordered by my wife and our friend were good, but not enough to justify the overly expensive bill. The mojitos hardly had any alcohol and I had to ask for a double shot in order to taste it. The service was excellent although the waiter offered bread and water to start with and the bread never came.

    Good Food and overall a classy place that is also hip with a DJ spinning on the patio. Definately recommend the outside patio. Retracting roof that can be deployed within minutes in cases of rain. Restaurant is a bit pricey for the portions you are getting but the food is amazing and is more quality over quantity. Would recommend to check out at least once if visiting Miami for a few days or more. Very friendly staff.

    One week prior, we ate there the especillty that was not on the menu: Kobe Beef for 3or4 at 160$ So this time with diferent friends, I asked if they still had that special, the waiter said yes, and I told him I wanted the one that was for 3 or 4 people (we ate 4 last time, 3 this time). To our surprise when the bill came, that cost was 230$... the alleged that the one before was of 32Oz and this time a 64Oz!! 1) If they offer a plate for 3-4 people it cant be the double as big and still be for 3-4 people 2) the waiter should have told me the price, because it was not in the menu... I did not ask beacause I knew the price of the "3-4 people Kobe beef. 3) And anyway... however you look at it, a 345$ for a piece of meat for 3 is a rip off!!!

    The food is very good and while it is pricey it is worth every dollar. We think they need to re-think the service, it is impersonnel,you do not know who is your waiter orwaitress,what is this habit of removing the bread and the bread's plate after the appetizers When you pay $20.00 for a glass of wine,it is expected that the waiter,waitress show you the bottle and pour in front of you. They have great food, it is our 3rd time at this restaurant, they need to improve on these items ,

    This place is outstanding for the view and the decor. The food is very good especially the white truffle risotto which is absolutely perfect. On the other hand, you unfortunately can't reserve a table outside which is the best place to be because inside is terrible with all the noise. You barely can't have a conversation with the other people you're dining with! And even inside it's a problem to be at the table you want, they're not very flexible.

    For a restaurant that came highly recommended we were greatly disappointed. We had reservations and when we arrived they would not seat us til the entire party was there( we were just just four people and the men were finding parking) so instead of seating the wives, we had to stand around and wait. It may be their policy, but I think it is a dumb one. To be a posh restaurant, the hostess was actually quite rude, the service was slow, food mediocre , music way to loud and therefore people trying to talk over the music. Will not go back or recommend. On a positive note; short rib dumpling was very good.

    We dined with business associates and the ambiance, the view and the service were exceptional. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, quite fun and one of the best waiters I've experienced in South Florida. The food is quite good, yet the prices for the culinary experience does not measure up. Having experienced fine dining all over the world, paying for exceptional food is not an issue. The veal chop was prepared well, yet at $53 I should be raving. This is fine line most restaurant struggle with. While I recommend Juvia for the experience, I would also caution to set expectations vis a vis your credit card.

    My only critique would be that in today's world of food allergies the options that were or could be gluten free were scarce. The scallop dish which was GF (2 of us ordered it) was delicious but, came with only 2 scallops and little else. It was more of an appetizer than main corse except for the price. Other than that it was wonderful.

    Gorgeous place, splendid view and tasty food. I took a client there and ordered wine from the very pricy wine list. Server constantly filling you glass-a bit annoying when your trying to talk. First bottle gone before dinner and needed a second before our entree arrived. They add 18 percent automatically which was an 85$ tip for a 500$ plus pricy Wednesday night for 3 persons. No dessert or apps by the way.

    Restaurante com um lindo visual mas oferece uma comida muito mais cara do que realmente vale. A garçonete que nos atendeu era apressada e com uma gentileza forçada e no final nem trouxe a nossa conta. Pelo nível do restaurante, ela deveria nos informar que passaríamos a ser atendidos por outra pessoa. Indico somente uma bebida no bar para apreciar a vista noturna. Não para jantar. A comida não surpreende!
