Service was very slow and unresponsive to diner requests.
Terrible food. Ceviche felt like it came out of a can. Overly fried yuca and octopus without taste. Shumai was overly cooked and oily.
The sharing plates were great, prices are good, reasonable for south beach, staff was very accommodative, just a tad toooo noisy to hold a conversation.
Absolutely amazing ! From the bartender upstairs; Josh, & to our waiter. Everything was phenomenal. I’d highly recommend & will most definitely be back! Thank you for such an excellent experience!
Simply put, this was one of the best meals my wife and I have ever had. So creative, so flavorful, so wonderful. We shared every plate so we were able to explore more of the menu. I encourage everyone to do the same. This was our first trip to Miami, and when we come back 27 will be a mandatory stop. The service was fantastic. It was a seamless team effort. The dishes were brought out with perfect timing. We had time to just sit and enjoy what we ate before the next magical creation came out. If there is any complaint it would be that the lighting was rather dim and it made reading the menu difficult. We quickly forgot that once we were served because the food was transcendent.
The challenge here is that patrons feel compelled to scream and yell, effectively "drowning" the amazing food and extraordinary setting.
The cocktails are outstanding! And, the restaurant’s Miami Spice options were amazing AND included an incredible cocktail. The food was flavorful and layered.
Great ambiance, the servers know the food and overall great experience.
Great service! Very knowledgeable server and amazing food quality!
First, I would like to say that I love this restaurant, which is why this review is so disappointing. This weekend we celebrated a friend’s birthday at 27, and the service we received was absolutely horrible. The hostess was unbelievably rude and Refused to accommodate our party. Her attitude was shocking. You are in the service industry, you should not be working at the front of the house, if you can’t even smile or try and be understanding. Our server was cold and provided the bear minimum service. He delivered a slice of cake and didn’t even bother saying Happy Birthday. All in all, the food was amazing, but the service was absolutely horrible.
Food is delicious... service was amazing. Never disappoints!
The food was creative and tasty
Much too dark to read menu or enjoy the food
Couldn’t see color to appreciate appearance of dishes
Need to add higher wattage lightbulbs
Food is outstanding and really interesting flavors. We had 10 different dishes and they were all excellent. Don't miss the kimchi fried rice. Service is excellent and drinks are really good. Only minor complaint is that the interior of the restaurant is very dark and could use a tad more illumination
Excellent food beautiful place fantastic drinks and attention the best
We were a party of 4 for brunch. There were maybe 3 other tables in the restaurant. It took a server nearly 10 minutes to come over and ask for drinks. Our waters were never refilled. The server didn’t come back to check on us until we were completely done with our food. We saw our server chatting with other staff from our table. On top of that we were charged 18% for the service we didn’t receive. Would not recommend for table service. Drinks and atmosphere were the only good thing about this place.
Went here for Sunday brunch with my boyfriend since we were in town for the weekend. It was awful. They forgot our appetizers, the food was basic and the service was absolutely terrible. We were ignored the entire time and had to remind the wait staff that they kept forgetting our appetizer multiple times. When it was time to pay, our waiter was nowhere to be found. Literally walked around the entire restaurant and it took nearly 30 minutes to get our check. Honestly, we could have walked out and they would’ve never even noticed.
Definitely not worth it!
We loved dinner here! Food was all amazing and the waiter was very knowledgeable.
Service and food was great!!!
Loved our server - she was awesome! Great ambiance and loved the ropa vieja. Tried the Cry Baby cocktail and ...not our thing. All else perfect!
Food was decent. Small portions. Over priced. However, we did get top service.
Good brunch, service was great and food very tastefull.
Great ambiance and such a cute outdoor seating area. Great meal for sharing plates.
Muy bueno, regresaremos!
We were looking forward for a nice lunch, but the food was very disappointing. The menu seemed good but we definitely had leftovers, drinks are ok I guess they served the purpose of letting us swallow down our “meal”.
We ate the cauliflower, which was overcooked and topped with a greasy pesto sauce, patacón with “guacamole” if I can call that when u have served it out of a plastic container with pomegranate... so let me just leave it at that.
Then we tried eating the pork shoulder which as dry as a pair of leather shoes from the 50’s and lastly the “summer salad” which probably was made last summer, cause the endives looked everything but fresh. So sad but who knows maybe Sunday’s are for leftovers... good luck!
Really cool spot. Not many tourists and great food. At night it is really dark inside and It can get really loud but it shouldn’t spoil the place.
Staff were extremely rude... terrible service. Food was good.
I went to 27 with my girlfriend, and another couple from out of town. It was a great experience! The service was awesome. Our server has worked there for a few years and provided perfect recommendations. The actual food was awesome. Will definitely be back to try more things and explore the menu.
When you’re all wrapped up with dinner, don’t forget to visit the bar next door, Broken Shaker, for drinks. Ambiance is great!
Delicious food with amazing service in a fun ambience!
We enjoyed grilled snapper, the arepas, and Kim fried rice very much. Food was great and service was great! A noisy place but maybe it was better that way...
Amazing and unique food, great service and a nice chill atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Let me start off by saying our server, Michael, was terrific. He could not have been more helpful, knowledgable, and kind. We love eating, so ask a good deal of questions. Since 27 uses so many fun and unusual ingredients, we want to know as much as possible about what we are choosing--because the food here is consistently made with tender loving care and is always having hidden gems of taste sensations. For the first time in our three visits, we had a bummer of a dish. The beef entree special on Saturday, alas was nearly room temperature, and the Hasselback potato--a true joy when cooked properly--was almost raw throughout a third of the potato--and there was barely any crispy portion (which is the whole point of the tuber dish!). My wife's scallop chraime was perfect and our appetizers of Griot & Piklitz and brussels were perfectly executed. It was kind of Michael to comp us the chocolate layer cake dessert. Still an unusual, fun, tasty place to dine and I am sure we will return--but was a bit unsettling from the near perfection we have seen there previously.
Awesome restaurant, great food, cocktails, and ambiance. The service was top notch. MacKenzie (server) and colleagues were excellent. I would not hesitate to go back to this eclectic gem.
Best yuca I am ever had - mist get as an appetizer; the pasta (made there on site) with artichokes and spinach ++ with lemon was delish!
Amazing tasty food. Love this place. Diamond in a rough. If you want a great dinner in Miami Beach this is the spot. Also make sure you arrive an hour early to get a couple drink at fab Broken Shaker before dinner. Best night thank you!
We sat outside and loved the ambiance. It was noisy but we were still able to hear each other without yelling. Food was great and came out quickly! The staff was also very attentive and friendly as well.
Smoking allowed outside but discouraged
The restaurant had a wonderful atmosphere with antique furnishings and paintings. The word funky comes to mind. Food was very creative.
Not to be missed
Amazing food, shared style. Plus the cocktails were fantastic!
