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.

I had been looking forward to this restaurant all week, but what an utter disappointment! The service was atrocious, and our server was training someone! That does not bode well. The food came out very fast and all at once and was not good at all. We are total foodies, but this was a horrible experience! The server never checked on us, our entire meal was served within 15 minutes of sitting down, and our drinks finally came about 25 minutes in. We had expected a leisurely, delicious meal, but instead were done in about 35 minutes. We didn’t dare try dessert for fear of being further disappointed. The best part of the evening was the walk back to the hotel!

SAVE YOUR TIME, DO NOT VISIT THIS RESTAURANT.

Not sure how this place stays in business. As a hospitality professional, the service was outright unacceptable.

Our server was incredibly rude. He never introduced himself, he came to the table once to take our order and when we asked for another minute, he never returned. He was literally dodging our table, so there was no way to even get his attention. No one else seemed to be working besides him??? It’s now been an hour and we didn’t even get our drink order.

Finally the manager came over, but never introduced herself as so. She took our drink and food order but never apologized for any delay. At 1.5 hrs we finally got 1 app, then minutes later drinks, then the other app. The mushrooms were over salted and inedible and the cauliflower was under seasoned - it was literally just boiled cauliflower. And the prices they have the audacity to charge?!

I have never wanted to walk out at a restaurant, but I have never been so disgusted with an experience. We met the host at the front and she’s the only one who was polite and understanding, she apologized and said to not worry about the bill. Our initial server, came up running to us screaming at us to “put our masks on when talking to my staff” EXCUSE ME?! you’re kidding right. First you run and then you’re screaming at patrons? I was dumbfounded and that was it for me.

I asked to speak with the manager and was shocked to see it was the lady who came to take our order; clearly she didn’t care about upholding any quality of service. She met me with zero emotion or compassion and an empty apology.
