A word from La Marea At The Tides
Meaning ebb and flow of the tides in Italian and Spanish, La Marea is a refreshing addition to South Beach’s dining scene. One of distinguished interior designer Kelly Wearstler’s masterpieces, La Marea’s lushly landscaped entry terrace with intimate al-fresco lounging and dining spaces is the Ocean Drive hot spot to enjoy intuitive service and innovative culinary experiences. The diverse menu, conceived by Sous Chef Luis Moreno, celebrates the diversity in America with refreshingly eclectic dishes that also portray a global sensibility, prepared simply and elegantly. As a palate teaser, diners can opt for the Short Rib Empanadas, braised short rib salpicon, habanero chutney and red pepper remoulade sauce. Seafood lovers should not overlook the Pan Seared Tides Grouper with Spanish Rice, roasted plum tomato basil salsa with a Saffron beurre blanc sauce.

    Would have been much better if the music from the bar next door wasn't so obnoxiously loud! If both the bar & restaurant turned it down a little you might actually be able to carry on a conversation. The waiter tried to up the bill by bringing bottled water and beers without offering the available option of draft & tap, but otherwise decent service. Gorgeous location right on Ocean Drive.

    Every time when we are in Miami Beach we go to this restaurant. This time was for the last time.....how nice it once was, so horrible is it now. The food is not good, the one waiter cannot cope with the few tables. My wine arrived after dinner. And red wine sauce was warm red wine, a steak medium was well done. Prices are still the same: rather high. But in the past it was worth it, now we left as soon as we could, for ever.

    What a disappointment. When I got there, I was told that LaMarea does not exist anymore and that the restaurant is just called the Tides. The food was mediocre. My lobster ravioli tasted like it came out of a can. The only good part was the outdoor seating, which affords great people-watching on Ocean Ave.

    We were on vacation when we arrived at the restaurant but no one else was there, so we left - it just seemed awkward and not festive to be alone in a restaurant. Also, they had a woman standing outside (like a carnival barker) trying to entice people to come in. It was so tacky and a real turn off.

    HLima13
    Dined on 12/28/2012
    Appetisers were very good, main dishes too spicy and overpriced and overpretentious, the wine prices were too high, a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, that you can buy in a wine store for $11.00 or $12.00, was priced in the wine list for $85.00! Is a shame that such a nice place, offers such a poor choice of quality food. We spent $400.00 for 4 people... That is a lot of money for what we got! Not to be repeated. Money and time sadly wasted!

    When gratuity is mandatory (18%) the servers seem to care less about actually delivering service. The food was inconsistent and we ordered the same dish 3 days in a row and it wasn't the same each day. The final day a key item was left off the plate entirely! Service was perfunctory and the price for the food was not worth it.

  • Outdoor dining on Ocean Drive
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/20/2012
    Outdoor dining on Ocean Drive is fun, but at most places the tables are jammed onto the sidewalk, and you dine with the continuous stream of passersby's elbows in your face. Also, they tend to be noisy, with high energy=high decibel music pumping. At the Tides, the seating is gracious, off the sidewalk on the terraces in front of the building. The noise level is lower, and there is a casual elegance about it all, from the seating to the service to the extremely well presented and delicious food. Certainly worth a return visit.

    We ate at this nice hotel restaurant primarily because we were staying at the The Tides Hotel where the restaurant is located, but the food was very good all the way from the shrimp appetizer to the key lime pie for dessert. A little expensive, but a nice place for dinner; it was not crowded because it is more expensive than the many cheap places along Ocean Dr, but it is definitely way above them in food and atmosphere.

    Surprisingly on a Sunday night with less than 25% of the restaurant filled, they ran out of their specialty. Rolls served were essentially hamburger buns quartered and heated up. It's Sunday but shouldn't customers still expect a level of quality?

    Enjoyable lunch with good food and good service. At the time there was a large conference group finishing up thier meal so it was quite noisy and also when they left with the rearrangement of the tables they occupied. This did not spoil the experience however. Would go there again and would also like to try out the red bar.

    The restaurant is gorgeous. It's in South Beach with a view of the boardwalk where everyone passes by. We arrived at 715am from Miami Airport for a 730am reservation. There was noone in the place so we waited in the lobby. After 20min, the bellboy said we could sit anywhere. We sat and read our magazines since we were not in a big rush but come on! Noone came to take our order or get drinks or even give us a menu until past 8am. When we did finally order, we got the steak breakfast burrito and the smoked salmon sandwich. Food was good, decor is great, service really disappointing.

    I travel and dine solo 12 months of the year and this was the most pleasant dinner I have enjoyed alone for several years. The staff are attentive without intruding, the menu devine, I was given e choice window booth seat to watch the evening promenade on Ocean Drive and - as I do not wear a watch - when I asked the waiter to give me a time check for a later appointment he arrived right on time. The wine I enjoyed was a bit overpriced but by the glass it always is. A truly wonderful dining experience.

    Upon arrival at the Tides we were uanble to locate the restaurant or anyone to assist us.We went to the bar which no one was servicing. We were told by an employee in the lobby his shift had ended. We were finally able to find a server to obtain drinks. The scotch and water and gin and tonic tasted like diluted water and were $36 with tax and gratuity. We were told the restaurant was the one in the lobby of noisy tourists.We did not dine at the establishment and were most dissappointed.

    Went with a friend on a random Thursday evening - early enough so that it wasn't crowded. Service started out great, but the minute it got a little busier, our waiter forgot we existed. Food took FOREVER to come out. Empanada and grilled shrimp appetizers were good. My lobster alfredo was only marginal - wouldn't get it again. Friend's seabass was tasty though. Outdoor dining was nice, perfect SoBe sightseeing, but overall experience was just blah for amount of money we paid.

    The food and setting was excellent - highly recommend for outdoor dining. One thing to note is that their pricing is considerably higher than indicated on their site - about twice as much. Average dinner for two - $250 (pre-tip with one bottle of their 2nd to lowest priced wine). Just be prepared for that.

Do not miss the strawberries tiramisu for dessert it's as good as it gets!If you want South Beach and quality, this is the place and i can't wait to go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/3/2011
    The dining room decor is excellent - a good experience. However both food and drink were disappointing and poor value. The initial wine we chose from a short winelist was, after a long pause, discovered to be out of stock. The wines are overpriced (average over $60 and $18 per glass). Food is expensive too. Crab cakes good (but not the best we had in town) and my Caesar salad was very strange, with overcooked chicken. Not a disaster, but not really good enough.

    A wonderful dinning experience. The Ahi Tuna Tartare was excellent. It was mixed with mango pieces and on an avocado mousse. A great way to start the meal. The Spaghetti Alle Vongole was just perfect! Our server, Antonio, was just super and helped make the evening so special. And his suggestion for dessert, the caramelized banana, was the best!

    The outdoor area is a lovely place for dinner. The menu is limited and quite pricey. Unfortunately we had a waiter who was quite pretentious and treated us as if we'd never dined out before. That sort of spoiled the entire evening. The food was good but not great. We would probably not return.
