  • So Bad

    Michael Mina 74 was SO disappointing! It has mixed, but mostly decent reviews on Open Table. My boyfriend and I went for an early (7pm) dinner while away for the weekend. There were not many people there, even as it got later, there were tons of empty seats. Also, for how few tables they had occupied, the service was TERRIBLE! It was so slow and not attentive. The servers were all nice/pleasant but just not with it. Maybe it is because we are used to Manhattan pace and style but this place was so bad, just so bad. The food wasn't awful but it wasn't good either. I mean just so disappointing. You'd think because it's in a really famous, busy hotel that it would be great, well, that is not the case. Overall, bad service and bad food.

    Michael Mina's was a very nice dining experience if there had not been so many screaming kids the night we were there. The food was very good- very nicely presented. I guess the evening was overshadowed by the fact that there were several table with unruley children who were loud and out of control. One father was also constantly taking photos of his chilren with a flash that was very distracting.

    Read mixed reviews before booking here but figured it couldn't be to bad it's the Fontainebleau. We were seated as soon as we arrived to a great window table looking out at the pool area it was very cosy and dj was playing great music the whole time which made the night even better. The music was not over powering at all and thought it just added to the atmosphere. Our waitress explained all the dish so well and kept checking on us. Food was great and so was dessert . Would definitely come back next time I'm in Miami and make sure you get a drink in the hotel lobby bar it's very fun!

    We had a great meal here. It is located in the lower level of the Fountainbleu hotel in a dark, intimate space. We had the snapper and the black cod dishes and both were outstanding. Lovingly prepared fish in Asian inspired sauces worked perfectly. The sushi appetizer was also outstanding. The bartenders really know how to mix flavorful drinks..

    Went here for girls night in a group of 6. Great atmosphere and there is a DJ starting at 10:30 which makes it very loungey and super fun! All of the food was amazing - especially the tuna tartar. Great place to order "family style" and share. The only reason I am giving the service 4 stars is that on 2 occasions we waited almost 20 minutes for our round of drinks to be brought to the table. Oh and the sauce served with the beignets is to die for!

    They should put up glass behind the tables close to the bar and or behind booths. Way too much noise for such a beautiful place. We have been there twice and will go back again, we simply must go early to request a table further away. Made it a bit hard to enjoy my companion and to talk ..—something that we value most when we go out

    When we recently dined at Michael Mina's we found the food to be extra salty to the pont the food was not enjoyable to eat. When we told our server she just shrugged. She didn't apologize or call over a manager. She didn't offer another dish or throw in a free dessert or drink. Customer service goes a long way. It also makes you want to return to a restaurant again. Considering the resturant was half empty, I would think they would be trying a little harder. I loved the resturant last time I ate here. Not so much this time.

    We're always looking for a restaurant that understands the importance of lighting--if I wanted to eat in the glare of bright lights I would go to a diner. Mina's had great ambience! The snapper was exceptional in a delicious broth. The staff were attentive and friendly. Great experience.

    Even for the FB hotel, the food and especially the wine list was way over-priced. $28 burger, $7coffee, and $18 for a small pour cheap chardonnay. Prob great for before or after LIV, but not a destination rest with all the great rest in miami. A more approachable wine list and reasonable priced menu would be a home run in this location.

    After an initial friendly greeting the attitude of the hostess went quickly downhill after asking for a better located table in the relatively empty dining room. She was like a moody teenager. The waitress was very nice-informative and educating but then caused us to wait over 20 minutes after we asked for the check. Food was very good and the varied menu offered something for everyone.

    Food was good but there must have been some sort of service issue. Menus were delayed, dishes that were ordered weren't brought out and the server was totally missing in action after taking our orders. When the manager, Brittaney, came over after dinner to see how the meal was I surprised her as well as myself. I've never voiced a complaint before in a restaurant but I told Brittany how disappointed we were. She went into action and did everything to make us happy. She is a professional. Hopefully things can be corrected for future guests.

    My wife and I were in Miami during February break. A busy week in town with the boat show and the food and wine festival. We are used to the high season treatment, high prices and impatient service. Not the case at Michael Mina. The bartenders were sweet and accommodating. Our server was young and a bit inexperienced but her recommendations were spot on. The sommelier came to the table and offered us a great bottle off the menu and even told us the price in advance. The food was outstanding. The best we have had in Miami on this or any trip. A great experience, we would highly recommend Michael Mina 74.

    The food is excellent, the staff is superb. Mina's take on American cuisine is well-rounded and has some outstanding features. The most noteworthy is the tuna tartare. Prepared tableside complete with a quail egg, capers and spices, it is just like being at Brasserie Lipp in Paris getting thier famous beef tartare. Exceptional also is the Caja China, pork three ways. The staff went out of their way to source a cheese plate (not on the menu) for us to finish our red wines. Perhaps it will appear on the menu soon?

    Had a totally unacceptable experience at this restaurant. Even though i had a reservation, I was kept waiting for table for over a half hour and ended up getting seated at a booth that had been vacant the entire time. In addition to the waitress being distracted and a bit surly, the food was subpar. The appetizers had a gritty, over-fried taste. Couldn't discern any other ingredients in the mix of offerings. Management was also unresponsive, when the lapses were brought to their attention. With all the outstanding restaurants in the South Beach area, including several great places in the Fontainebleau itself, I would pass on Michael Mina 74.

However if fine dining is what your after then I would pass! The attitude of the staff is very snobbish & the portions are minute... The overall food quality is good but give me a break & just say the entree is half size & order double... I would be ashamed to serve that to my customers. This place is a major MB Rip off !!!

    We had seen the reviews in Opentable and some were not great so we were somewhat concerned. After visting Mina 74 we were happy that we didnt take those comments very seriously. The food was amazing ! We went with a group of friends and every plate we order was incredible. The flavours and combination of ingredients used are only the result of a mastered chef like Micheal Mina. The ambiance was also very nice and trendy without being overly intimidating .the overall value for the food was also great ! We would definetly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to enjoy good food in a trendy enviorment.

    Super food, waiter was excellent, and the place is hip and creative. Two minor issues: sommelier disappeared and never came back after the first taste (had to ask a server to pour the champagne) and dirty dishes sat too long (bus staff needs additional training). Overall, a cool place for an expensive but tasty meal.

(1) Ambience - very loud & objectionable overhead music (2) Drinks - excellent quality but truly a one-half sized drink -- the drink size (@ $14-16 per) is totally inadequate (3) hot olive bread - excellent (4) $24 appetizers of: lobster pasta & of mushroom tarte -- both good, but not great, & I wouldn't order either again (5) Black cod was excellent w/ "unwieldy" udon noodles were difficult to eat; potato-crusted pompano was very tasty but over-sauced w/ romesco (would have been better sticking w/ seasonings & brown butter on the plate (6) fudgy chocolate cake w/ peanut butter ice cream & malted milk puree was excellent and satisfied 4 people. Overall, too many drwabacks here.
