A word from Novecento - Brickell
Looking for fun, great cuisine and good wines? The party is at Novecento, the Miami sibling of the two decades-old restaurant in SoHo. Great ambiance with live DJs Wed through Fri in a hot bar scene. The cuisine at Novecento is a refined co-existence of Argentine, Mediterranean and Pan-Latin cuisines, heightened by French techniques - perhaps best called Nuevo Bistro. Chef Medici's food is intriguing. Locals can't stay away from this landmark, making Novecento one of the best value restaurants in Miami. Our Argentinean signature dishes includes the typical Empanadas, Provoleta, Sweetbreads with a twist and flavorful grilled steaks.

    The restaurant inside looks messy. Decoration has potential but they need to organize better. I ordered a menu including appetizer, main and dessert. The vacio was just ok. Not too much flavor. The main has just one side (from a selection) When ordering I asked if I could do half salad half fries. They say 'no'. I just don't like restaurants that have no flexibility with a salad and fries!!!! I understand it is a menu. But with the side they should't have a probelm. I was not even asking for something it wasn't in the list. Extremely disappointing. I am never coming back.

    We were promptly seated, respectful of Open Table reservation, party of 3. Everyone was very satisfied with food quality. I loved the ceviche-flavored dressing atop my magi-magi, but the fish itself was a tad dry and tough, overlooked slightly. My friend I both drank Arnold Palmers, which waitress kept flowing.

    I've eaten there several times as I am a fan of their food but this time the service was horrible. The waitress got our drinks order wrong and then would disappear for long periods of time so getting her to change the drinks, getting refills, or even asking for something simple, like butter, was an issue. The food is always amazing but the service these last 2 times that I've gone hasn't been good.

    Most of my party ordered from the Miami Spice Menu. They all ordered the short ribs. They were tasty (according to them) but kind of on the fatty side. This issue was addressed to the manager, and she immediately put in for a new order. I ordered the Chimmichuri Steak with mashed potatoes and it was delicious. The empanadas were yummy. Overall, it was a good time.

    I booked this restaurant for an important meeting, the place was so crowded the waitress was flying from one table to another taking orders and forgetting what was asked for along the way, we wait about 20 minutes to get a soda and had ti ask another couple of waitresses for desert and the check because the first one was so busy to attend us she did not wait us!. As for the food, we select meat but were never asked how do we like it, or if we wanted the salad with dressing or not, they just poured whatever dressing they found in the kitchen. This restaurant is not what is meant to be, so pricey for a Mcdonald_type service!

    Took a $30 taxi from our hotel to this restaurant as the menu looked good. We were seated immediately, but no one approached to acknowledge us or take a drink order for 20 minutes. We decided to leave at that point. Found a great Cuban restaurant around the corner with great food and wonderful service.

    Dined on 4/16/2014
    We pre-booked, but the table we were sat at was not great - no view, middle of room. The noise level, chiefly due to the music system, was a full-scale assault on the ears - I couldn't hear anything my dining companions were saying. The appetiser we selected to share was OK - ceviche. However, my main course - Novocento special pulverised beef, in breadcrumbs - was tasteless, as was the veg - I can't even remember what it was. The best thing on the plate was the mashed potatoes! Wine horrendously expensive - I could have bought the Garrigna in a wine store for less than a third of the price we paid. Overall, a really disappointing night out, at a restaurant we had been recommended to go to. We will not be darkening their doors again.

    I went on a date w/my girlfriend after hearing positive reviews from friends. After sitting for nearly 10 mins w/out a waiter, I went to the hostess to ask for some service. She came over & took our drink order. About 5 mins after that our waiter finally arrived.We placed an order for an appetizer & 2 entrees. After our order was placed, our wine arrived.15 minutes after the wine arrived, our dinner arrived.Our appetizer came out after we finished our main entrees.This was after 3 x's reminding the waiter that our appetizer had still yet to get to our table.The food was great,but the service was horrible!I won't go back to the restaurant because I don't want to chance the bad service experience.I will not recommend this restaurant to folks.

    We visit Miami nearly every March for the Sony Open Tennis and always make it a point to stop at Nvecento for dinner. It is a terrific venue with great service and delicious food. Tuesday is our favorite night since they offer bottles of wine at 50% off, which is an even better value since their wine list is broad and their normal markups are reasonable. We started with the beef empanadas which were delicious my entree was the half boneless grilled chicken and my wife had one of the seafood dishes (sorry I cannot remember which) but regardless both were terrific. As always the service was prompt and courteous

    Went there for Christmas dinner. The food was really quite good. Was expecting a bit more classy / romantic setting, was not expecting all the TVs mounted to the walls. We were in and out the door within less than an hour (had appetizers and a main course). Normally that would be good for a restaurant in America, but for Christmas evening, I had spent a long time prettying myself up for a night out, so to be done within less than an hour was a bit a let down :-(

    MiamiFoodieEC
    Dined on 9/28/2013
    It was a wonderfully laid out meal for Miami Spice. I noticed the servers were pretty quick, but sadly were a bit too attentive- what I mean to say is that unfortunately I felt rushed eating, and they would come check up on me and my date every few minutes, which I think is a bit TOO much. Food was very well prepared, but when it came time to get the check, I didn't realize that I accidentally overpaid in cash by 20 dollars, and didn't get that money back because I made it home by the time I noticed. So I basically dropped a monster tip (on top of what was already included in the price). This was the only major downside since it left me with a bad impression of my waiters. Would I return? Maybe, but I'll never pay cash there ever again.

    Had the Miami Spice menu. Ceviche well prepared had good flavors and accompaniments. I had the seared grouper, which was perfectly done and flavored. Tried friend's steak medium rare and also great flavor. Dessert was also decoratively prepared, tried mango cheesecake which was a standard cheesecake with a homemade mango salsa (the mango was fresh). Chocolate souffle with ice cream was also very tasty and all plates were elaborately decorated and appealing to the eyes. Service was good, like most restaurants in the area. Would definitely return and recommend.
