    I ordered meatball pasta and the texture of the pasta was very hard and undercooked. On top of that, the pasta had a seafood taste to it and hard pieces of crab claws. Had I wanted a seafood pasta, I would have ordered that instead of a bolognese meatball pasta. They literally took a seafood pasta dish and threw a huge meatball on top of it. After I encountered several hard seafood shells and had had enough, the busboy asked how was the meal, so I complained. He took what was left on my plate, showed it to the chef and never came back to our table with any sort of explanation. SERIOUSLY? Our waitress never even asked how our meal was and by that point I didn't want to work myself up again. Needless to say, we were less than impressed.

    Made an 8:30pm reservation with friends visiting from NY. When we get there, they give us a pager to wait just like anyone who just walked-in. Not a good thing when they highly recommend reservations. Shortly after we were told that their was no more lobster which is the reason why we went there. Neither on their website or anywhere else did it state that after 8:30pm they don't honor their Lobster Madness which is offered on Wednesdays (all you can eat lobster). After driving almost an hour we stayed there and it was not a great experience. Appetizers and desserts were yummy but our entrees were not that great. After having a $250 tab we left dissatisfied and disappointed.

    On Wednesday, the have all you can eat Maine Lobsters. Not sure there would be any other reason to go there. It's so noisy you cannot hear the people you are seated with. Service is slow, and the cocktails from the bar were horrible and sent back. But.... Lobsters were great.

  • No lobster?!?

    Dined on 8/19/2014
    My date wanted lobster for his birthday. Picked Kitchen 305 for a Tuesday night dinner. Apparently they only serve lobster for all-you-can-eat Wednesday. Menu online had lobster for dinner everyday. I order lobster bisque-on the menu-but didn't have it. He then asked if they had a surf n turf? Only on Saturday was the waitress' response. So...we ordered lobster Mac n cheese. Imagine a plate of Mac n cheese arriving with a lobster tail in the middle of it. Call me crazy but if you want surf n turf couldn't you use the lobster tail from the Mac n cheese?!? Couldn't you make lobster bisque? Disappointing! Reservation was for 8:15. We were 1 of 4 tables in the restaurant. Could have and should have accommodated. So much for Happy Birthday

    Went for a birthday dinner while in Miami with my girlfriend for ladies night. I put in reservation comments section it was a b'day dinner but the hostess, nor the waitress acknowledged the birthday. Also, they initially tried to seat us in the overflow room in the back with dingy carpet. I has to wait ten minutes with a reservation and wait another five to change tables. The band was good, drinks, were good, lobster night was good, NY Strip steak was good. Service is so-so and the $10 to valet was a little much for me. I think their are other better options for dinner, but stop in for free drinks after 9 on Wednesday's and enjoy the band.

    I love this this restaurant for Wednesday night all you can eat Lobster. The servers are very friendly. The bartenders on the other hand are not so friendly. Maybe they are over worked or fill they are above the servers, I really don't know. They ignore you and keep you waiting a long time even when they seem not busy at all. Other than that I loved this restaurant.

    The food was very good, the service was very attentive, polite, and enjoyable. However, the ambience was that of a bad cruise ship with a salsa lesson happening. Although the music was good, a dance lesson while dinning is not such a great experience if you are there for a restaurant.

    Went to the Wed. night all you can eat lobsterfest at Kitchen 305 in the Newport Hotel in Sunny Isles Beach, FL. Made reservation for 5:30 PM when restaurant opens. Was seated promptly in back room with a view of the pool and ocean. From 5:30 til almost 7:30 the room was not full, so the noise level was quiet. At 7:30 the noise level increased dramatically, but that wasn't necessarily a bad thing. The dining room had filled up with people who were enjoying unlimited lobsters and having a good time. Our server was Ben who was excellent. We never had to ask for our next lobster..he was right there with it when we had just about finished one. The lobsters were large and delicious. I ate 4...my hubby ate 5. Can't wait to go back again.

    Made reservation for 7:30 and modified it online for 8:30. Restaurant did not get confirmation. Made us wait for 45 minutes. Hostesses were novices, no smiling, eye contact or real interest. Waited in hotel lobby. The hostesses just gave us an excuse that the system had been having that problema with Open Table... Food, was mediocre at best. Noise level, uncomfortable. Must say seafood better than the rest. My gnocchi a la vodka was Sandy and ridiculously undercooked. Sent it back. Crowd was not fit for families on Friday night, I may add. A bit too much even for South Beach standards. Would not go back, nor recommend the place at any price.

    Yes all you can eat lobster is appealing but depending on the season not always a wise choice. A couple years ago it started great! Now it's horrible, too busy too loud, one hour wait with a reservation. Horrible service! They slam the lobster on your table, don't have the proper plates for it. Tables are messy, servers are in a rush to stuff you and see you leave. Table for two by the kitchen, with non stop traffic and annoyingly noisy. We still dropped over $100 bill for dinner and felt like cattle ... Never going back nor recommending this place to anyone :(

    I absolutely love this place, My family and I dined two weeks in a row. Our waitress was little bit on the impatient side and did not pay attention to what we ordered, she knocked over a drink did not wipe up the mess she made and charged us for the spilled drink, other than that, this place was great. Great music as well.

The food was ok we went for the all you can eat lobsters but the lobsters a over cooked. The waitres was friendly and kept bringing out more lobster so that was nice. The bar seen was fun in especially liked the girls that danced in the bar. The music was also enjoyable.

    We had 10 pm reservations for Valentines and had to wait additional 1/2 hour (really?). The staff was obviously tired. Steaks seemed microwaved. Dessert was some strawberry think with a biscuit that was as hard a hockey puck. Almost $200 (with drinks). Very poor return on investment. Don't waste your money.

    I took my wife to Kitchen 305 for Valentines. I was pleasantly impressed with the over all vibe of the place. The bar was good, the bartenders were very nice, and the drinks were great. It didn't take very long to get seated. (Afterall, we did make reservations). Our waitress was very nice. Unfortunately the food was not as good. My wife had the all you can eat Stone Crabs. She loved them!!!! I ordered from the Valentines Menu. I would dare to say that my meal was not worth the $45. But seeing my wife so happy eating her all you can eat Stone Crabs made the hole experience worth while.

    When I booked out valentines day reservation 3 weeks in advance there was no note about a set menu. They couldn't seat us at the time of our reservation. We were first seated at a table next to an enormous doorway to a kitchen with no door so it was very bright and very loud. There was no list of wines by the glass but the waitress did allow me options of cab, merlot, Chardonnay etc.Mine tasted like dishwater so I sent it back. The mozzarella in the caprese salad was not high quality. The ribeyes were so fatty they were almost impossible to eat. Even the creme brûlée did not have the hard layer of fired sugar on it. 3 nearby tables of diners sat and left before ordering during the course of our meal and I wish we had done the same.
