    Michael Mina's restaurants are always excellent. This particular one has a unique concept involving carts with unexpected items being pushed around. The plates from the carts can be selected as your meal alone or as complements to your meal. In addition, they offer many "shared plates" where either an appetizer or entree is served in a size appropriate for two people to share. It enabled us to sample a wonderful selection of a variety of plates. We definitely enjoyed the experience.

    Walking into Michael Mina 74 you you automatically get a feel that the experience is going to be different But in a good way. Service was amazing. The carts that go around and offer you the chefs choice for the day were exquisite. Most of all it was a very comfortable place to enjoy with either you loved ones or a romantic night on the town

    I should listen better ! Before going I read some Yelp reviewers about the poor quality of the food ar Mina"s and I could not believe it. So we went. The restaurant in locatedin a basement, it has an excellent acustic since it was a disco dance so you can oerfectly eat, listen music amd talk with no problem at all. The setting is veey nice, the service was excellent but the food was far away of Mina'sreputation. The 2 appetizzer were almost frozen, so they did not have any taste, the entree were just ok and the desssert were excellent. Overall it was a huge disappointment.

    I love Michael Mena restaurants, and this was no exception! The food was delicious, and the service was good, which is always a bonus on the Beach! The problem is this restaurant is downstairs in the Fountainbleau Hotel! I hadn't been there in a while and I do not plan on going there again! It is a circus! It took us 30 mInutes to get our car after dinner! Since I am a local, I should have known better but, I really wanted to try this restaurant! To be fair it was a Saturday night, so maybe if you go during the week it wouldn't be as bad!

    We have been to several Michael Mina Restaurants before and have always enjoyed them, but this one was a disappointment with the 85.00 per person tasting menu. It was lack luster and lack of flavor and creativity. However, Rouven, the manager, was really wonderful and did everything he could to make our experience better. The desserts he sent to us were really good and because of his concern for us and our experience I would give this restaurant another chance, but next time, I will order from the menu and not try the tasting experience.

    The service was very good and the quality of the food amazing, in addition my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary, and they were gracious enough to deliver a great piece of dessert at the end of our dinner (a very nice touch) for our anniversary celebration, this dessert was delicious with outstanding presentation, quality, and freshness. Needless to say that the steak was amazing, the wine list vast at reasonable price.

    Service didn't get to out table for 10 min. Waited other 10 for water and soda. Then we had to ask for bread. Server kept saying it was coming but never came. Our dirty dishes were piling up but we were in no mans land by the bathrooms. It's sucked. Food was okay. Teeny tiny for $42 a plate but tasted good. Basically entrees should be renamed "small plate appetizers". Desserts were good.

    The service left something to be desired. The food was rather plain. The signature tuna tartar did not match other same named restaurants. The noise level made it impossible to talk comfortably. Perhaps enough said.

    Went to Michael Mina 74 this past weekend. The restaurant was nice and the ambiance was ok. We sat down and had to wait a very long time for our server to take our order. There were no specials mentioned and we had to ask for the Miami Spice menu - it was not offered to us. One of us ordered from the Miami Spice menu while the rest of us (3) did not. The food came out fairly quick which was nice but the food itself was lacking in flavor. The servings were very small as well and the persentaton was also nothing to write home about. The fish with 'shrimp fried rice' was a very small piece of fish and we looked very hard but could not find the 'shrimp fried rice' it promised. Not a place any of us plans to return to.

    We went to 74 to celebrate a special birthday. As San Franciscans, we knew that a dinner at a Michael Mina destination would be wonderful. But the experience far surpassed our expectations - starting with the birthday card that was waiting at our table. Talia, our server, took excellent care of us, and we were visited by both managers (who both came from RN74 in SF). The dining cart/ode to dim sum experiment they are doing is fun and allowed us to try bites of some amazing dishes. We lucked out in being there for Miami Spice, which is a set menu for $40, so we got ourselves a deal on top of an incredible meal. We will be back on our next trip to Miami, for sure!

    The restaurant was great, the food amazing and the whole experience was wonderful until we walked outside. Unfortunately the restaurant is inside the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach and the only parking available is through the hotel's valet parking. Even though the restaurant validates the ticket for a discounted $12 parking fee, the valet parking is HORRENDOUS. We had to wait 45 minutes for our car. After waiting 30 minutes and seeing that persons that arrived after us were leaving, we asked how much longer it would take. It turns out they had misplaced our car. There was another group next to us whose car had been scratched. It is for this reason that I will never return to this restaurant unless I take a taxi.

    We had a very nice Miami Spice dinner with a variety of good food options from which to select, but our server was very snooty. The food is very creative, but the portions are on the small side. The pork belly was a bit fatty, but the fried chicken was delicious and juicy. Desserts are great. They have an interesting cocktail menu and the "carts" that offer a variety of raw bar options and small plates are inventive, but pricey. I would have given the overall experience 5 stars had our server not been so unpleasant. The restaurant was not crowded (we were early and it was a Sunday night), so she was certainly not overwhelmed, but she seemed very "put out". Quality and price of food deserves better service, but overall a good evening!

    They recommended the plates should be shared so I expected portions to reflect that. We each ordered an entrée and asked the waiter if it appeared we ordered enough. The scallops were very good as well as the mac and cheese but we all left hungry.

    We went to this restaurant and after the waiter described their dim sum like menu in addition to their regular menu they kept bringing carts arounds to all of the tables and pushing appetizers that were uncovered and passed all of the plates around from table to table until someone finally would feel obligated to accept it after it was practically put on the tables. Very up tasteful and not very hygienic. In addition, we had to Sk for the Miami Spice menu as it was not offered to us and the waiter had a complete attitude after we told him we were ordering off that menu. The food itself was below average in quality and presentation. I would never recommend this place to anyone

    We went for Miami Spice, food was very good, good portions, fried chicken delicious, drinks overprice!!!! When we ask a glass of wine the server suggest the two most expensive wines of the list!! ($30 for each). I feel to try to take advantage of us. We are currently customers of Bourbon Steak in Aventura and never never had happened before.
