    We enjoyed our dinner at this lovely establishment. We had a bit of a wait, even though we had reservations…but they were very gracious. We dined on unlimited stone crabs….delicious! There was a lot of hoopla with dancers on the bar, but that just added to the energy. If you are looking a a lively energetic experience, this is the place to be!

    I enjoy the lobster here, but when i put a reservation for a table i expect to be seated at a decent time, not having to wait 45 min to get my seat. i specifically requested a booth for our party, but they gave us a table in the middle of the floor. they had an open booth for 15 minutes after they seated us so there was no issues with not having one available. if you are planning on having any kind of conversation with someone this isnt the place to do it without having to yell over the live band. the music was so loud, it was louder than most nightclubs or live concerts ive ever been to. if you plan on going i suggest earplugs.

    Ottawa1234567
    Dined on 1/15/2014
    All you can eat lobster was just that. Loud busy room with loud band made conversation impossible. Lobsters were overbooked and tough but of a good size. Service was poor at best. Salad or soup starters were mediocre at best. They grossed up the service charge to a compulsory. 20% so that the bill for. 3 was over$50. Better off to go to a good restaurant and pay that for 1 lobster that is prepared well and served to excite rather than dull the palate.

  • A Bit Overrated :(
    Lagermo77
    Dined on 1/3/2014
    I have heard many reviews about the restaurant by close friends and associates however, I feel the whole experience was a bit under rated....the server was less than amused which was the opposite of what I had been told I would experience. We ordered the house sangria which was suggested by the server and it was a great suggestion ;) I ordered the mussels as a starter which was delicious! My entree was the filet mignon. It was ok but you really can't go wrong with a steak. My friend ordered the crab cake and it was less than tasteful. It was under seasoned and really didn't taste like fresh crab meat. Overall the ambiance was cool...won't be running back but I am willing to give it a second try on their seafood Wednesday :)

Our Server, William, never ceases in his quest to meet and exceed our every wish when we visit. He is quite simply one of the most thoughtful and highly skilled professional servers I have met. He is consistently gracious, charming, and enthusiastic at ensuring our service and experience is exempliary. His efforts, and those of his colleagues, are always top drawer and aimed toward achieving perfection!

    I can't rate the food as I only went for New Year's Eve cocktails. My friends that had 9:30 reservations did not receive their food until 11:30. Apparently they were forgotten in the back. They did report that the restaurant took care of them for this error. I am will to try any place that corrects their mistake. I thought the place was over crowded for New Year's. The ladies dancing on the bar was cute at first but when it comes to almost getting kicked in the head and concerned about drinks flying the "cuteness" goes out the door.

  • worst stone crabs ever
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/27/2013
    I took a large party this past Friday night and had the worst stone crab dinner in my life. After hyping the all you can eat for a full year I brought a large group to share the experience we thoroughly enjoyed a year ago. We had a great time with our party but the stone crabs were ridiculously small, frozen and the ones that weren't frozen were terrible. They weren't cracked well, tore up our hands and when you got to whatever little meat there was it was basically inedible. We went last year and the stone crabs were amazing but this year they were terrible. I'd rather go elsewhere and know my stone crabs are fresh and edible and will never go back here for this particular meal.

    We dined at Kitchen305 last Thanksgiving and absolutely fell in love with the price and the various delicious selections offered. The restaurant was spacious and the set up was great so there was no traffic at the buffet stations. From the time you pull up to Valet to the time you get your car back, every staff member you encounter is a pleasant one. Thanks for such great hospitality.

But the food was so good I actually finished the whole enteee plus dessert! As a recommendation, the seafood rissotto was awesome and my companion reply enjoyed the lobster salad sandwich. I would definitely return.

    Live in the Sunny Isles area and Wednesday night, all you can eat lobster is awesome! Service is always first class and the management goes over the top when speaking to guests. However, I tried Friday's all you can eat king crabs, and some of the legs wasn't the best. Several of my guests traveled from Palm Beach County, and they complained about stomach issues. Very unusual, but I'm willing to give it another shot on Friday's.

    Upon arrival we were told there was a 30-35min wait. Was finally seated after 1hr and 10 minutes, after escalating to manager. We were placed in a back room that looked like a reception hall with no windows. After a few minutes of being seated, a waiter dropped a large platter of lobster shells on the back of my husband's chair. Our waitress was super nice but unfortunately frustration for 1hr 10 minute wait, plus unpleasant discussion with manager, NO ambience, and loud room made this an extrememly unpleasant evening.

    This was my first time dining at kitchen 305 and it was a pleasant experience. I went for the Wednesday all you can eat lobster special which is a great deal. The service was decent but not great. This is probably due to the overwhelming response to their Wednesday special. Overall, I had a great meal. I ate lots of lobsters and I do see myself returning to this kitchen again in the future.

    My first time in Miami and my husband and I were celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary. I wanted seafood and lots of it. He ordered the endless crab dinner. The crab was great, the rest of it was forgettable but I ordered off the menu, bouilliabase and sea bass. Fabulous, absolutely fabulous! The only gripe we had was the 22% gratuity added automatically. We had received good service and had a friendly server and were going to tip her well anyway. All in all though a great night.

    Nice hotel. $10.00 Valet. I made reservations for 8:15 pm and I arrived on time. Unfortunately the crowd was buzzing and I had to wait 30 minutes before we were seated. We took a walk on the pier and took pics to past the time so it was fine. We were seated exactly at 8:45 pm so the hostess kept her word. She seem stressed out which is not a good look for the restaturant. We were seated close to the entrance but we still can hear the live band. I would tone down the music a little it was hard to have a conversation. Took a while for our order to be placed but hey it's all u can eat lobster so it was kind of expected. Our waiter apologize for being busy and became some what attentive. We ordered a bottle of wine which was rally good.

    Hubby and I went to Kitchen 305 on Wed. June 19 for their "all you can eat lobster dinner". We loved it on a previous visit, and it didn't disappoint this time either. We started with a clam chowder for me and a salad for hubby, along with dinner rolls and a glass of white sangria for each of us. Then came our 1st lobster plate, with a lobster about 1.5 lbs, some potatoes, and a small piece of corn on the cob. Our waitress kept checking on us and, without our asking, brought us additional lobsters when we almost finished the current ones. The lobsters were delicious. We sat in the back dining room which overlooked the pool and beach area, and had a great view along with a great meal.
