    We ordered the tempura shrimp, tuna ceviche and a ceasar salad to split between the two of us. The food was terrific and we had a beautiful view of biscayne bay. The service wasn't initially good as we were seated right by the door to the kitchen. Once we were moved and were out of the flow of the kitchen traffic, our experience was much more relaxing.

    The view was great, and there aren't many like it in the Grove. The menu was limited and pedestrian. Food was good, but I'm not getting why it's a destination at all, except for the view. It was a weeknight so it was quiet, and the Grove was dead. My niece and her friend liked it, though.

    Dined on 6/23/2014
    Having selected the Panorama Restaurant for our wedding anniversary dinner from the trip advisor ratings we were a little underwhelmed when we went in. The main room is small with a bar and there is an outside area. The ambience was lacking as there was nothing special about the décor and having dressed up for the anniversary meal found a large table with flip flops and t shirts next to us. So not fine dining with people making an effort to look smart but a standard bar with some tables. However the service was fine and we were well attended and the food was really good. The ceviche was excellent and the all the courses from appetizer to dessert we could not fault and when the bill came it was great value.

    Panorama is a hidden gem in the Grove in that since it is in the Sonesta Hotel a lot of people don't know about it. The food is fresh and very tasty. The trio of ceviches are lovely and fresh, the churrasco was cooked beautifully and very savory. The one thing I would encourage them to do is perhaps offer more traditional Peruvian dishes, I think the selection can be augmented. The service was great, very pleasant and attentive. The Pisco Sour was great! The views are just gorgeous, don't miss the sunsets!!

    The food we had was really outstanding, and the service during lunch was okay - we spent a number of afternoons at the pool and couldn't get anyone to help us with food and drinks. I even tried to flag them down, and they ignored me, so I had to go inside and order myself and they had the nerve to charge me a 19% gratuity! They don't have their service act together

    The restaurant is on the 8th floor of a 18 floor hotel. If you sit outside near the wall, there is a bit of a view. We didn't since it was windy. Food and service were good but during our 4 day stay in Coconut Grove we had a much nicer experience at other restaurants. Yuca Frita was very good. The ceviche was okay. The Seco de Pescado was delicious.

  • My husband's Artisian salad
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 11/8/2013
    My husband's Artisian salad was VERY nice. I ordered the Caesar salad, which was also nice; however, the Caesar was supposed to have bacon. I could find only one bacon bit in mine. Next time, if there is not enough bacon to stand out to the eye, I will ask for more. Our 10 ounce steaks were absolutely DELICIOUS. I wanted another one. The only other criticism is with the dessert. It was called "ice cream bar." There was no ice cream, just chocolate covered cream, and it was a VERY SMALL, rectangular object sitting on a very large plate. I would loved to have enjoyed same in a larger size with actual ice cream.

    I had a very pleasant date with my girlfriend at the Sky Lounge. It's a very quiet place- great to just a romantic evening. The scenary overlooking the bay was great at night. It's right next to the pool, so night gave the right balance of quietness yet great view. I would definitely recommend anytime you want to impress a significant other or just enjoy a quiet evening.

    The view is beautiful and the food was great. But we seemed to get there between shifts and our first waitress walked off after we told her we were ready to order and didnt come back. Our meals ended up taking an hour to come out. The took off our last round of drinks and apologized. Seems like more of a restaurant for just hotel guests.

    Might be was my mistake for not checking more reviews about this restaurant, but I went there to celebrate my anniversay; I took my decision to go based on the pictures: SCENIC VIEW. But, although the view is in fact great, what the pictures are not showing is that this restaurant is on the Hotel's pool area, so, you will have people in bath suit walking around your table. The food was OK... just OK. Definately, this restaurant is not for Special Occasions.

    This ranks as one of the best hotel restaurants in my book. It is on the pool deck, where you kind of feel sandwiched in, but a great view of the bay. It is a very open-air venue, next to the pool. My mojito was prefect. The cuisine is Peruvian fusion, and everything on the menu looked good. We started with the mixed ceviche, all of which were excellent. We also saw the shrimp appetizer walk by to another table and had to have it, which was wonderful. My steak was perfectly done. The carmelization on my creme brulee was a little to burned, but was otherwise great. My only complaint was that we ate outdoors, and the wind and cold got to me. Good for a romantic evening.

The menu varies from ceviche to beef to aji de gallina dishes sure to please your palate. It's an excellent, cozy spot to enjoy your meal while forgetting about the city below.
