Enjoyed everything. A 20% gratuity was automatically included (which was not mentioned) plus they also had a space for a tip.
All staff made us feel welcomed & special, as if we were the only ones dining. Crista was outstanding. She made our anniversary dinner memorable!
I previously came here in 2019 (Pre Covid, obviously) and had a great experience. Food was fantastic and memorable and service was top notch.
Unfortunately, my last visit did not live up to that standard. My husband and I ordered four apps to share and several drinks. One of the items literally tasted like nothing -- I think it was the short rib but i honestly can't even remember because it was so bland. The shrimp dumplings were pretty good but nothing incredible. We did enjoy the mushrooms -- that was the most stand out item we ordered.
We planned to order two entrees but were just feeling 'eh' about the entire experience and decided to skip to dessert. Both of the items we were interested in were not available which was super disappointing.
service was pretty good. My one concern is that the tables in the back were pretty close together given current circumstances.
The food was creative and very tasty. The cocktails were delicious. The dessert was outstanding. The outdoor dining was wonderful. And Hugo and the team were impeccable in their service. Our third time to Miami and no doubt this is our favorite place to eat.
We arrived early and had deinks at Broken Shaker (i didnt realise you had to reserve). We managed to get a table in their lovely garden cocktails are Amazing!! We had dinner at 27 which was delicious so fresh it was great to see their vegetable garden in the grounds. Food is innovative fresh and tasty. Organic wines do not give you a hangover 👏. Loved the place!!
They started out strong but it was a slow steady slide from there on. Incredible setting and music selection. Our cocktails were amazing and our waiter was engaging and enthusiastic.
Our first dish with pork and plantains was out of this world and set up our hopes for more.
The second, cauliflower with curry, labne and pomegranate seeds was interesting but honestly, the flavors were so strong that you could hardly tell you were eating cauliflower.
Last, we opted for the whole fish selection and neglected to ask what the market price was. Well, what came out was a whole snapper which had been cut into chunks and been heavily breaded and deep fried. It was literally fish sticks. And it cost $75. Total let down.
And then our waiter disappeared for 30min. Getting the check was a hassle. Needless to say, we didn't opt for dessert. Might be worth a try, but I’d stick to the drinks and small plates.
We are in the area for the week and decided to give 27 a try after reading mostly positive reviews. We both enjoyed a lemon based cocktail which was delicious, falafel, and mussels for the entree. The cocktails and food were great. Giving 3 stars because our dessert was forgotten and the server neglected to check back after courses to ensure that we had everything we needed. We were disappointed due to the lack of good service we expected to come along with this price point and good reviews.
Amazing service and the food was great. The best part, however, was the overall atmosphere and vibe. 27 is what food is all about.
Disappointing. Made a reservation at 27 for 2 via Open Table, nowhere given the chance/ choice, for selecting an outdoor table. Arrived at 7:30 pm on time, with 4 empty tables outside, we were not allowed to use any, even after repeated request. “The are all reserved”. Two outside tables available at 9 pm when we left.
The whole fried fish we were offered, was not available.
Having a nice conversation with my friend, waiter kept visiting the table in an annoying manner, almost inviting us to leave.
Very warm atmosphere and interesting food. Extremely well furnished!
A very pleasant experience
Once again jimmy and the crew were amazing from the FOH to the waiters . Food is totally on point .
Charming garden and atmosphere with a creative menu and good music
Beautiful place, incredibly fresh/local food. Always where I take ppl from out of town. The Crudo, the Oyster Mushrooms w Malawach, Falafel & Dumplings are amazing! Especially that Malawach!
Love the international, relaxed, bohemian atmosphere with delicious and inventive food that is effortless.
All great! Brittany at the front, Hugo taking care of our table, and AC at the Broken Shaker afterwards..... an excellent evening, great food and drinks and outstanding service!
Amazing food and ambience. Highly recommend. Will return
Awesome to order many dishes and share
We came here two nights in a row, first for food and second for dessert. The food was amazing. The desserts and service weren’t.
The short ribs were so tender and sauce was perfect for the ribs. However, they came with raw cauliflower and slaw (not good). Who eats raw cauliflower? How much raw cauliflower do you throw away at the end of the night???
The kimchi fried rice was delicious and crudo was absolutely amazing. The flavors were complex and went together perfectly. Shrink shumi- just order them!!!
Go somewhere else for dessert- definitely not worth the $30 we spend for two desserts. I was dreaming about the brûlée figs. However, they came with a huge pile of goat cheese and 5 small pieces of figs. The figs were not bruleed at all. The brownie was not anything to write home about.
They force you to pay a 20% service fee and it was obvious that our server expected that fee without caring about the service. HJaubert came to take our order thats the only time we saw him. We had to get up from the table and ask the busser for our check. The bussers did all the work and were attentive in clearing our plates. The second night, the service was essentially non existent (same server).
I would give the food 5 stars and server zero stars.
Amazing the chef as always steps it up every visit.
Love this place. Great energy, really good outdoor space that felt COVID-safe, had great food and wine (esp. the salad), and ambience is cool consistent with rest of the Broken Shaker/Freehand space.
Went twice, the first time everything was good, but the second time the hostess was extremely rude and unwilling to accommodate the previously requested outdoor table while seating other guests outdoors. I understand if there was no availability, but there was and the way she was extremely rude was frankly unacceptable
We had a beautiful experience at the 27 Restaurant! We were warmly greeted by the host who took great care of us and made sure that we were comfortable and safe, following the current time guidelines. Service and ambiance were uplifting and smooth, food was delicious. Very good explanation about the composition of our dishes. Drinks were stellar! Will definitely return and recommend to friends!
What a great restaurant! The food was delicious, the service very very good and the atmosphere is fun. A great way to start any evening. Highly recommended!
The mushroom oyster dish was delicious but too oily. While I enjoyed it a lot it gave me a stomach upset.
The rustic chairs and tables were great to look at but not very comfortable.
bday! great ambiance and food .. also cocktails ❤️📌
All the food was wonderful, but if you’re going there and don’t get the Whole Fried Fish, you’re missing out. It was insanely good!
Delicious food. Great service and nice outdoor seating!
I am sorry to say that I was very disappointed with this restaurant. It was recommended by a friend but very disappointing. First of all, the host out front is so rude. He should not be the first face the customer sees with his unhappy attitude. The food was average, and too expensive even for Miami. I'm sorry but I don't recommend this place and won't be returning.
Delicious! Hugo was attentive and knowledgeable. Food is phenom, especially the Short Rib, Mussels, and the Bruleed fig dessert. We celebrated a birthday as a small group here and had a great experience. Thank you!
The food was AMAZING!!! I randomly picked them based on how different their menu looked and my boyfriend and I loved everything and ate it all s fast! The kimchi fried rice is crazy we talked about it for days after. The dumplings are awesome too!
If you want crazy good food with a lot of flavor and fast service go here for sure!
Not the best place for septuagenerians who value quieter places with less rich and lower salt dishes but can see how younger diners might appreciate it.
The cocktails and ambience at 27 are worth the visit. The food left something to be desired. Octopus was burnt and overpriced. Service was great. I’ll be back, but will eat before coming.
Awesome meal. Awesome service. Eat here every time I am in Miami and it gets better every time.
Food and service was great. Great location.
Creative food, excellent service and very beautiful location. Next to the Broker Shaker, which has top notch cocktails in a super chilled garden
We left in love with the pork and octopus dishes... drinks were really good too
We come here all the time and love the food. This time it was not that great. I will still always love 27 and will come back.
Phenomenal food and amazing custom order cocktails fit to your flavor profile. This place is incredible.
Having been a customer of 27 Restaurant in the past, I was extremely dissapointed with the menu choices, food quality, size of entrees and level of service. It seems COVID has had a severe effect on this restaurant and is drastically different from the “food to table” experience it previously offered. I took 3 guests from out of town and was truly embarrassed with the experience last night. I will not be returning to 27 Restaurant.
Had a great dinner here, the crudo of the day, yucca and short ribs were AMAZING. Would 100% come back and order these items again! The staff were lovely, from our hostess to our waiter, we had a pleasant experience with everyone we met.
