    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/31/2009
    On a two week holiday as a adulkt and teen family of five, we ate there twice and on both occasions had a very good meal and discovered a new wine to us!Food was excellent - not the usual Italian fayre - the Sea Bass was possibly amongst the best prepared pieces of fish I have ever eaten. The service the first time was a little bit too attentive - but we British are a bit reserved when it comes to personal service in restaurants. A bit of gem this one which I would strongly recommend it for adult family dining and specia;l occasions.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Good friendly service. Excellent goats cheese starter - lovely flavours, quality dressing. Lamb chops cooked to perfection - I like them very pik. Potato a little under cooked; vegetables included in main disappointing - good job the the meat was moisew as the rest was a little dry. Wine selcted by waiter - a dry spanish white excellent - wish I could remember the label but we left it to him to meet our tast requirements and it was perfect. Left the choice of braqnbdy to the same waiter and that was sharp, over priced and disappointing. $160 for two was expensive for one starter , one sweet and two mains but we could have chosen pizzas or pasta. Loved the room. Tuesdays are quiet at 2030 hours. I do not like the tip being included at 17%.

    I really enjoyed the food. I had the Miami Spice Menu and a can not complain about a thing when it comes to the food. The pork was cooked perfectly. My problem with the service was they took both my entree plate and my dessert plate before I had a chance to finish eating. I was on a business dinner there so I did not cause a scene, but if I was there on a personal level, I would say something.

    I am in love with timo. My boyfriend and I had our first date there in January of 2009, and have consistently gone back ever since. The food and service are wonderful, and we always get everything we expect everytime we return. Tony the waiter is amazing, he always makes us feel so welcome, and is so helpful when it comes to us picking the perfect wine pairing for our dinner. Everytime we go, it feels Luke our first date all over again....it's not often that you can find a place who makes you feel like that...so welcome, and at home. Like you never left. We will always go back!

    We chose the Miami Spice Menu. This has to be one of the best choices I have seen offered. I started with a spicy clam soup that was absolutely perfect. I had two large pieces of black grouper perfectly cooked and seasoned over saute spinach and mashed sweet potato, for desert I had an italian pound cake enrobed in a berry mousse with fresh raspberries on top and wonderful coulis on the dish. Dining companion started with a duck raviollo in a bing cherry sauce, followed by pork tenderloin over a ragout of sausage and beans, finished with a desert of dark chocolate cheese cake. We chose to have a flight of wines 3 oz of 3 different wines to accompany our meal, they were perfect companions. Waiter was very knowledgeable and service was excell

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 9/11/2009
    This is our favorite restaurant in the Miami area. We go there about once a month. The menu changes frequently and is always very creative. Last week we had a pulled duck raviolo appetizer, a main course of pork tenderloin infused with the aroma of the wood burning oven, and a raspberry cream pound cake desert that was to die for. They have a great selection of wines by the glass, and we have discovered several that have now become favorites at home. The service is impeccable: prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. Appropriate silverware is brought BEFORE a dish arrives (unfortunately not a common practice in the US), and bread crumbs are scooped off the tablecloth before desert. Convenient valet parking is available at the front door.

    Squash blossom appetizer was yummy. I was happy to see lots of new items on the menu. Hubby and I shared the tomato consomme soup. Nice that they were able to split it for us, but the broth was so salty that I just picked the veggies out. The spinach tortellini with shrimp was lovely as was my partners' halibut. 4 out of 5 for us tonight!

    The food was superb,we started with the foie gras and the seared tuna, and we shared the dishes, and we don't know which was better... they were simply perfect, then we shared the fried oyster salad and was exquisite, as entrees I had the rib eye and my wife had the halibut, and we both enjoyed the intense, yet delicate flavors of both dishes... the only sad part of the story is that by that moment there was no room left for desert. As far as service, we were treated like royalty. We are definitely coming back.

    Wow, was I happy that this place was down the street from where I stayed in Sunny Isles! Yes, it is in a strip mall, but so what - everything is in a strip mall down there! The restaurant has great ambience, the service is fantastic - really friendly and very professional and the food is to die for! From foie gras crostini with orange and sea salt to halibut with a saffron "bearnaise" sauce to black-and-white pizza (ricotta, mozzarella and black truffles .... ahhhhh), everything was just impeccable. I highly recommend it. Prices are reasonable, too, and they also do flights of wine for, like, $14-$15 - a great value.
