Diner Reviews
  • "My friend chose this restaurant for her b-day dinner that included 10 of us. They had the amount of people incorrect and then made it very apparent they weren't going to go out of their way to fix the situation. The "VIP host" was rude and ill-mannered. He almost knocked me down when he rudely brushed past me coming down the steps. The service was slow & we caught the server, host and "VIP host" giving us dirty looks and flailing their hands. Our party couldn't have been more patient and understanding. I will not be returning seeing as that there is a million restaurants in Miami and the majority of them MUST be better than Cafe Nūvo. Too bad because it's a fabulous location!"

  • "Good food & a large mojito menu and the wait staff is attentive but be prepared for your good to come out very slowly. A but overpriced- came to $250 for 3 of us for dinner. There were several other restaurants in proximity that looked a little better."

  • "The restaraunt was very hot with no air conditioning. We were sat outside at first and it was a little humid. I then asked to be moved inside where they accommodated the request. But overall the place was just ok. Not worth the money the charge. And fish came out dry. Would not return."

  • "We went here expecting a large seafood selection, with pasta options. Of course we didnt look at the menu, and coming from the Northeast, we are used to a seafood place having about 20+ fresh catch of the day options. Expectations aside, this place actually turned out good. Tiger shrimp and pasta with the creme sauce was very good. The antipasto appetizer was also very good. If you are looking for a shrimp,mussels, and scallops paired with pasta, this is your place. I believe they also have a bronzino, but we did not order it."

  • "I choose Cafe Nuvo for my Father's Day outing with my wife. Started with Ceviche sampler which featured 4 different arrangements (Mixed, Ahi Tuna, Shrimp and other I can't remember) with plantain chips. This was a great suggestion by our waitress and really enjoyed it. For refreshment I had the Sangria Mojito which was really good and my wife had a glass of Germany Reisling. Our entrees came out hot and fresh without a long delay. My grilled mahi-mahi was prepared nicely with a avacado-corn-tomatoe garnish and quinoa. My wife's fried whole snapper lacked flavour and seasoning so we asked to substitute it for the mahi-mahi; which they gladly accommodated. They prepared a new fresh entree with the mahi-mahi, plantains and rice. A+"

  • "i have been there a half dozen times with exceptional food and service. this visit it seems the portion size was much smaller and lacking the high quality flavor that normally has been. The service was also not as attentive as normal. I would still recommend based on my previous visits - but if this would of been my first time then i would not be going back."

  • "Our party of eight were quick accommodated after the hosted confused the reservation with another party of eight. We were able to negotiate two pitchers of sangria to compensate for the hassle. Snafu now settled, we were ready to order. Nuvo's Mediterranean Seafood Linguini and Pan Roasted Norwegian Salmon were awesome! Presentation competed with the amazing seasonings of each dish. We were seated outdoors which allowed you to people watch as folks strolled Espanola Way however our conversation over the food trumped the distractions on the street. This is a quality venue to definitely try while in South Beach and ¡Buen apetito!"

  • "Cinco de Mayo in Miami....what else can I say??!!! The night started by walking up to a block party with music, energy and life. The food was tastfully developed with spices of the Mediterranean infused perfectly. The plush furniture made it cozy and romantic yet still appropriate for a company dinner. The service was very nice and helpful and willing to accomodate us. "

  • "Not the best food in Miami but definitely an enjoyable meal if you're looking to take in the Espanola Way street scene. Sitting outside was awesome as you could witness all the people passing by, take in the warm weather and the colorful lights and architecture of the buildings around that area. "

  • "Restaurant located on 'restaurant row' with mostly Italian themed food. Seated outdoors (on sidewalk) with many folks walking by trying to decide which restaurant to choose. Ambience was fine and service good. Food was only fair and cost medium to high. Salmon was overcooked and dry and Tuna came with a non-traditional sweet sauce. I will not choose it again."

  • "This is a great place to go if you are on Miami Beach- a unique restaurant with great and innovative dishes including quinoa and local fresh fish. The music was a bit even when we were sitting outside so we asked them to turn it down, the waiter staff were very accomodating. I highly recommend this place. "

  • "typical of some ( south beach restaurants) you order a glass of wine and they bring you 2 oz for 12 bucks!! and to be honest not a very good wine selection and the food was warm at best when served. alex our waiter was a nice guy but couldn't do anything about the wine shortage. what a shame great ambience and great potential but I guess owner needs extra cash..."

  • "Crowded, bland food, noisy, cold. Had a reservation, requested a nice seat, and put in a noisy corner by the bar door where everyone stood around, despite there being many nicer empty spots that were unfilled all night. I did request the other tables and was told that we would be relocated shortly then was completely ignored all night. Will not return and do not recommend."

  • "love the ambiance of Espanola Way . Nuvo seemed to be ok . The Goat cheese salad was awesome . and so was the tuna cevechi . The Grouper however was overcooked and dry . The worst part of the dinner was our waiter Alex . Had a horrible fake italian accent , and called all the women princess ( kind of offensive ) . He also tried padding the bill , so beware and check your bill ! They automatically add gratuity at most Miami Beach restaurants so don't double tip ."

  • "We had a terrific dinner last week. The location was great, a nice change from the traffic and commotion on Ocean Drive. Our waiter knew his menu well and overall added to the evening. We ordered Mahi and a grilled fish platter special, both of which were excellent. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a break from hotel dining or Ocean Drive in South Beach."

  • "Nestled among the many restaurants hawking their menus on Espanola St. is this gem which does not need to use such measures as the food, service and ambience are the excellent and reasonably priced. Salads were well executed and on the mark. Pasta entries delivered and were as good if not better than advertised. Waiter was attentive but not overbearing and genuinely interested in making the experience a good one without trying to recommend the most expensive items as their neighbors do. Would highly recommend eating here if in the area."

  • "First of all, the scallops appetizer is phenomenal. at first i just thought it was small, so as a joke i took tiny bites, but it was so good time slowed down around me. My meal was really good, I got the spicy shrimp pasta. I went on Valentine's day which turned out to be a rainy disaster for everyone, and the server there took really, really, really good care of my table. It also seems like a good girls' night out kind of place with a range of signature mojitos, that I did not get to try that night. I should go back."

  • "Went for Valentine's Day with my boyfriend. I ordered a steak with truffle fries and arugula salad. It was good, not great though. He ordered shrimp with pasta in a creamy sauce, which I felt lacked enough flavor/salt, and wasn't a large enough portion for the price. My glass of wine took foreeeeverrr to come out, and I don't want to fault them for it having been a busy night, but the service was less than prompt. Also, we sat outside but against the wall, and when it rained it leaked through the awning onto our food, so we were at a loss there."
