Laura was amazing, attentive, and gave us a couple great suggestions! The bussers/food runners and other staff were also very attentive and professional- it was very refreshing & a great experience first sec you walk in!
We ordered a standard margarita with don julio blanco & it was one of the best I’ve had. Paired it with the ceviche and tostones. The tostones are very unique and delicious despite what we’re used to! We ordered the short rib which was delicious + the kimchi fried rice. So good! This place never disappoints!!

Causal hidden gem. Delicious eclectic food. The oyster mushroom & malawach and roasted cauliflower starters were both amazing. For mains, definitely recommend the fish of the day and the pappardelle with pesto. We were fans of the super sweet sauce on the jerk chicken.

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to eat at most of the best restaurants in Miami, and this ranks near the top if not at the top of our list. We chose 27 for our 3 year anniversary and it was a perfect choice. After Carbone and Byblos the previous 2 nights (amazing food but very crowded and noisy), 27 provided an intimate setting with amazing service and delicious food. We cant wait to return when we are back in Miami this November.

I got the catch up the day. It was extremely dry and lacked flavor. Our service only showed up twice, when we ordered and when the meal was over. We didn’t get water until way after we got the meal.

We had a delightful time at this super cute, tucked away restaurant. We had the mushrooms, kimchi fried rice and the bulgogi and everything was phenomenal.

The wait staff were amazing. It felt like we were dining at a friends house. Even the bus boy was super sweet and talked to us for a bit.

The ambiance is cozy and quaint and the food is the completely opposite; bold flavors that make you drool as you eat.

Would highly recommend this place and come back in the future.

Very dark and not well lit inside. Waitress kept asking us if we wanted the bill without asking if we wanted anything else. They added a tip to the bill without telling us so we accidentally tipped 40% for mediocre service. The halva brownie was terrible.

This was our favorite place we ate in Miami. Super cool house-like vibe. The food was inventive and delicious. Definitely go with your servers recommendations. Service was laidback but attentive. I requested a virgin cocktail and they came up with something absolutely delicious. I ordered a second.

The food and everything was great, minus the fact they had just saged the space and you couldn't breath inside. I love the idea of saging (do it myself) but right before a dinner service inside with the windows closed was not idea, we about left however we ate and rushed out.

Love love the food at 27. Only issues- service can be very slow- waiting for water and drinks and it’s not the cleanest place. But the food is so good and eclectic- we keep coming back!

Well worth it. Food and drinks were unique and tasty. Nice local touches. We had mushroom and yucca appetizers on recommendation and weren't disappointed. Jerk chicken and catch of the day were excellent. Just right amount of curry with the fish. Best part though was the service - friendly, knowledgeable and timely including host Michael, bussing and waiter. Even got some good post dinner drink locations.

We had a lovely dinner until we were leaving the establishment and finishing our drinks near the bar at the entrance of the outside pool area. A man bumped into our company, family, who came from out of town and whom we highly recommended this bar to - and began verbal threats to aggress because he spilled his drink while he was drunkenly stumbling all over place. We thought the man was joking because he was smiling the entire time he harassed our family. A gentleman (who worked at your establishment) saw the entire episode ensue. He reported it to the managers who did NOTHING about it except ask US to leave the establishment. We asked if we could speak to the director of the establishment so that they are made aware of the people whom are meant to manage and defuse aggression by drunk customers. The manager, a small woman said Sabrina was the directors name but assured she would do nothing about this and we needed to leave. Would not allow us moment to explain. Appalled. Never again will we be coming back. Please contact us directly - I am highly recommending that you review your cámaras and take action so that your employees do not get away with this abhorrent behavior.

We had heard great things about 27 restaurant and were very excited to try it out on our anniversary trip to Miami. We arrived and the ambiance was great, we loved the vibe - plants, dark lighting, fun music. We sat at our table for 15 minutes before our server came to greet us and take our drink order. My husband and I have both worked in the food & bev Industry for many years and are extremely understanding and patient, but this felt unacceptable due to the fact that the restaurant was not busy. Our server was rushing us once he did come over. His attention was aimed towards a large party of young girls the whole evening which was just across the patio from us. He came by only once to check on us after we got our food and we had to flag someone else down to ask for boxes. He never asked if we wanted more drinks or dessert due to the fact that he only visited our table one time after the food arrived. I totally understand why restaurants are doing 20% auto grat after recovering from the pandemic but it felt like in this scenario the server was taking advantage of the fact that he would be getting a good tip regardless of the service he provided. Overall, we were extremely disappointed, especially considering the prices we paid for the food/experience. A big let down.

Thanks to the Infatuation, I found this delightful restaurant during my stay in Miami. We sat in the garden courtyard that was beautifully designed into a tropical oasis. Airy, lush, and nicely-lit, this restaurant has all the great vibes you’re looking for. The inside was very nice as well!

We had the mussels, short rib and kimchi fried rice. All of them were delectable. I think my favorite was the mussels which had corn, tomatoes and bacon in a mouthwatering sauce we soaked up with tasty toast.

Mother’s Day Bruch, my entree arrived before hers, upon the waiter asking us if everything was to our liking we had to
Ask for her entree. Then they brought the wrong dish, the waiter questioned me telling him it was wrong and said he could have sworn we said kimchi fried rice for breakfast. Then he said he would get her the shakshuka, I had to tell him to return both orders to the kitchen and remake them so they arrive at the same time, then I also had to suggest that we will have two drinks while we wait, which we also paid for. Then when the food came out the eggs in both dishes were over cooked. Shakshuka and chiliquiles should have eggs with runny yokes not hard. Followed by end the end after paying the total bill with nothing taken off nor offered for free I ordered another drink for her which I had to grease him $20 for.
