    I had an evening by myself so I picked this restaurant from the choices at the Fontainebleau based on other reviews. Service was great and the food was very good. Good place for couples and business groups.

    This place has great food, but has some major areas to improve upon. 1.) Finish the space, it still feels like a club 2.) Figure out who you want to be. The menu is all over the place. 3.) Ambience is weird. Bachlorette parties, date nighters, families with kids (which I have nothing against) and vacationers still in their pool attire. Time to enforce a dress code. 4.) Carts with the food are gross. No one wants to eat food that has been sitting out being passed around, EW. In short, we won't be back again, the super nice staff alone can't save this place :( Sorry. It needs a total menu overhaul and some ambiance improvement. Best of luck.

    I went to dinner here with my daughter while staying at the Fontainebleu. The food was okay nothing special. The service was good. But it was very irritating to get a bill where each refill of my daughter's soda was charged at $5 each. Charging $5 for each refill really? I guess I should have asked if they were free but I can't remember ever being charged anywhere else for refills.

    After hitting a couple of Mina's restaurants in California we decided to try them on the East coast. 74 has great food and is set within one of the nicest hotels in Miami Beach. This one is a bit more casual than the others we've been to. We stuck to the Mina dishes-not that we have anything against the resident chef, just that every time we try one we are blown away. Lobster corndogs and duo of Hamachi were exceptional.

    I did not know what to expect. Or rather I thought of little tables with white tableclothes. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but something different is a welcome change. This place is very relaxed, cosy and has a bit of a pub atmosphere. Although the place is a bit dark, the general feeling is quite nice. In addition, the food is excellent. Good seafood, very nice service. Would gladly go back.

    The food was excellent. Missed out on the seafood cart, our server didn't bring it over. Burger month, so had burgers for dinner came with fries. Everything was fresh, cooked perfectly. Atmosphere of restaurant was so neat and exciting. Bread was best I've had.

    By far, the worst dining experience my wife and I have had since moving to Miami three years ago. The service was good, the food was egh... The ambiance was horrible. Great sales gimmick though, having the hostesses desk in the lobby upstairs, with a beautifully appointed wall mural with the name of the restaurant behind and stairs leading down to what one expects to be a memorable dining experience. Not so much, unfortunatelly. Picture your run of the mill Flanigan's, multiple the price list by 5, and shove the concoction in the dark, low sealing, cramped, decrepit basement of the Fontainebleau, and you will get a clear picture of what Michael Mina 74 is all about. It is a crying shame of a haute dining establishment wannabe...

    The food was outstanding. Wine list was excellent but overpriced. Server seemed completely bored and we felt like it pained him every time we asked him for something. When we're being charged exhorbatant prices for this experience we expect the service to go above and beyond. When we have to ask to have our dinner plates cleared or even a dessert menu, something is amiss.

    Location: at the old Arcadia space. Seems like some of the piping and lights were kept there for some reason. Decor: created no vibe. We sat next to the window area near the emergency exit and what seemed to be the old DJ box area. Little money was spent to re do this space in my opinion. Valet: $25, but $12 with validation. Would be nice if waitstaff or hostess asks to stamp. We forgot and valet told us to walk all the way back. Have u been to the FB before? It'll cost u less to pay then waste the time. Food: tenderloin was seasoned to perfection. Tuna tartar was bland for their signature dish. Wine: great chianti wine but overall prices for the wine were high with other fine dining restaurants. Staff: friendly, and attentive.

    Michael Mina 74 was SO disappointing! It has mixed, but mostly decent reviews on Open Table. My boyfriend and I went for an early (7pm) dinner while away for the weekend. There were not many people there, even as it got later, there were tons of empty seats. Also, for how few tables they had occupied, the service was TERRIBLE! It was so slow and not attentive. The servers were all nice/pleasant but just not with it. Maybe it is because we are used to Manhattan pace and style but this place was so bad, just so bad. The food wasn't awful but it wasn't good either. I mean just so disappointing. You'd think because it's in a really famous, busy hotel that it would be great, well, that is not the case. Overall, bad service and bad food.

    Michael Mina's was a very nice dining experience if there had not been so many screaming kids the night we were there. The food was very good- very nicely presented. I guess the evening was overshadowed by the fact that there were several table with unruley children who were loud and out of control. One father was also constantly taking photos of his chilren with a flash that was very distracting.

    Read mixed reviews before booking here but figured it couldn't be to bad it's the Fontainebleau. We were seated as soon as we arrived to a great window table looking out at the pool area it was very cosy and dj was playing great music the whole time which made the night even better. The music was not over powering at all and thought it just added to the atmosphere. Our waitress explained all the dish so well and kept checking on us. Food was great and so was dessert . Would definitely come back next time I'm in Miami and make sure you get a drink in the hotel lobby bar it's very fun!

    We had a great meal here. It is located in the lower level of the Fountainbleu hotel in a dark, intimate space. We had the snapper and the black cod dishes and both were outstanding. Lovingly prepared fish in Asian inspired sauces worked perfectly. The sushi appetizer was also outstanding. The bartenders really know how to mix flavorful drinks..

    Went here for girls night in a group of 6. Great atmosphere and there is a DJ starting at 10:30 which makes it very loungey and super fun! All of the food was amazing - especially the tuna tartar. Great place to order "family style" and share. The only reason I am giving the service 4 stars is that on 2 occasions we waited almost 20 minutes for our round of drinks to be brought to the table. Oh and the sauce served with the beignets is to die for!

    They should put up glass behind the tables close to the bar and or behind booths. Way too much noise for such a beautiful place. We have been there twice and will go back again, we simply must go early to request a table further away. Made it a bit hard to enjoy my companion and to talk ..—something that we value most when we go out

    When we recently dined at Michael Mina's we found the food to be extra salty to the pont the food was not enjoyable to eat. When we told our server she just shrugged. She didn't apologize or call over a manager. She didn't offer another dish or throw in a free dessert or drink. Customer service goes a long way. It also makes you want to return to a restaurant again. Considering the resturant was half empty, I would think they would be trying a little harder. I loved the resturant last time I ate here. Not so much this time.
