    Nikki Beach was really a fantastic venue with great food and a fantastic ambiance. I went with a group of 3 other ladies in our late twenties and we were warmly greeted by the hostess in the front. We were immediately seated outside where you are right along the sand. There was a dj playing music the whole time but it wasn't loud or disturbing, rather it added to the ambiance. The "Nikki Beach Famous Mojitos" were absolutely delicious - I highly recommend ordering. The food was really great and didn't take too long to be brought. This was the perfect lunch for us before heading to the beach!

    Dined on 11/9/2014
    i'd heard great things about brunch at Nikki Beach;boy was I disappointed. Due to rain, seating was limited. They ushered us upstairs to alternate space called Pearl (a nightclub with different decor). Access to Pearl required using an old, sketchy looking elevator that was EXTREMELY SLOW. Not an acceptable option for brunch which involves multiple trips back downstairs to the buffet. We refused this seating, got acceptable table after protest. Nikki Beach requires payment BEFORE you dine. WHO DOES THAT?! Then they ran multiple authorizations on our card to the point where it triggered a fraud alert with our bank. Took a 10 min call to bank to fix. The food was average at best. NOT FOR FOODIES. Way overpriced for low quality of the food.

    The food was of poor quality. My jumbo prawns were served with only one sauce opposed to three as described on menu. My husband's Marbella pils pils was served warm when in fact should be served piping hot. When my husband had finished his starter the main course was served despite the fact I was still eating my starter. It certainly doesn't meet with British standards

    We were the only table on Saturday night at 9pm. And ended up wttung a drink and app and going elsewhere since it was so dead. Sunday is the day to be there. Day drinking any day is great. Cabanas and bed for reasonable price. Food and drink are really expensive but they have beach access and the atmosphere is super fun. Just do t do dinner fri or sat.

    Ive been to Miami a few times and always wanted to try Nikki Beach but the reviews where not too great. I went with a group of 6 people on a Sunday night for dinner. The drinks and food are a little pricey, but its what is expected from a place like this. The drinks where good, I had their signature mojio. If more that 2 people are drinking it get a pitcher its a better value. The food did take a little long to come out( I think to get you to drink more, which we did while waiting) and our dinners came out shortly after our appetizers. the food was good, nothing fantastic but a satisfying mean. after dinner we where able to hang out on a daybed order a hookah and a pitcher of mojitos. the daybed was better than the club for us.

    never seen such unmotivated staff. They were so lazy and unmotivated and we had to ask them for everything, what made us feel like we disturb them. There was a bad atmosphere because all the staff was so grumpy and unfriendly. The food was just very expensive fastfood, the salmon wasn´t grilled although I ordered that and it was dirty

    I had gone to Nikki beach during a trip to Miami with my friends, it was our last day in the city. I had done the reservation more than 1 month ago, so our expectations about the place was really high. But, when we arrived on Nikki beach (according to the Day and time of the reservation), it was totally CLOSED!!! There were no one in the place or even a hostess to welcome us. I am really disapointed with Nikki beach, I will never recommend this place to a friend and I will never try to come back There.

    The service was beyond awful - we were seated and then left for 30 minutes before anyone came with water or to take our drinks order. We then orders drinks & starters, asking the waitress to come back and take our main course order. Someone else brought the food and when we finally found the waitress to order our mains (another 45 mins) she told us unapologetically that the kitchen was closed. Ridiculous. The ambience was cheap and frat party focused and, while our starters were tasty, the overall experience was one we regretted when there are other amazing places to eat in Miami.

    We had a fair experience at Nikki Beach. Firstly we had booked a table and had specifically asked for a fan. When we reached, nothing of that sort was provided. We sat for over an hour before they could give us a better table. Post that the experience was enjoyable until we came home and realized that all our cards had been swiped and charged twice and the amounts were different from the ones we signed for on the receipts. Not much help received on this matter.

    Terrible food. Overpriced. Rude service. Apparently Sunday is the day to go. We went on Saturday and it was awful in so many ways. If you're including 20% gratuity, make it worth my while. It seems like all of their eggs are in the "Sunday brunch" basket, and all other days fall by the wayside.

    the website shows a place that seems to offer quality service, food and exceptional experience.I'd say it is pure marketing and full on misleading. The service was bad. They say they serve food until late but when we arrived we were told kitchen closed at 10pm and we had to hurry. We were there at 9pm and waited 30 min with no server in sight. I got up to ask the hostess. The server finally arrived and was way too casual. The atmosphere was nothing special and the food was more fast food than gourmet.

    My boyfriend & I recently went here for Sunday brunch. We had an 11:15 reservation- but when we got there they still weren't open & everyone was waiting outside, sitting in the steps. The staff we're yelling to each other and at anyone who attempted to open the door. They finally let us in & we're immediately greeted by the rudest hostess I've ever met- who directs us to another hostess. She was at least pleasant & she asked a waitress to take care of us- who groaned and said she didn't want to. We finally are seated by someone else & get a waiter who honestly couldn't care less about us. On the plus side- the food was great. Just don't expect to be taken care of.

    Nikki Beach was a decent experience. First dining while vacationing in Miami. Food was good, hospitality from valet attendees, front receptionist to the cooks were very poor. Could just be the whole Miami thing but different from Atlanta hotspots. Spent over $250 on brunch and drinks for 2. Manager and wait staff were good.

    We now make Nikki Beach a "must" for Sunday brunch while in SB. Not only amazing food and a huge variety but everything is of excellent quality and the people watching is second to none for a Sunday mid day in SB. Go hungry, make reservations through Open Table for sure and plan to enjoy great food and a fun experience. Their gift shop also has some really cool beach items at fair prices as well. A "don't miss" for SB on any trip. One minor complaint during this brunch was our waitress was less than amazing which has not been our experiences previously????....empty water and drink glasses many times for a long period and no real attention from the waitress???...maybe just a rough Saturday night???
