Great food and ambiance. Service rushed us through the meal - appetizers arrived mere minutes after ordering and mains arrived as the last bite came off the appetizer plate, but super friendly.

This was our second visit in 1 week and again it was quite honestly faultless.On our first visit the waiter explained that it was a seafood restaurant and to recommended the bang bang shrimp and crabcakes. Not rocket science, not rocket science but those were amazing!!!! Service was attentive, yet personal and really quite delightful that our server remembered us from the last visit! The food was innovative and beautifully cooked and presented. Staff were knowledgeable and rather fun, it's lovely to see people enjoy their job! Food was promptly served and cooked to perfection. A nice selection of drinks were on offer in a lovely atmosphere. I am amazed at people complain about portion sizes and prices as, sometimes unfortunately it's the customer who needs educated. I am a chef and hospitality trainer and quite frankly I can't wait to visit again. I doubt I could teach them anything. Outstanding!!!!

Food was really amazing. We went because it had a solid review. When we realized it was on Ocean Drive we thought, "uh oh, it's in a touristy area and the food probably isn't that good because it's right across from the beach." We are local though and figured we'd give it a try anyway, and we're glad we did. The food was REALLY amazing. My husband isn't a huge fish person and even he thought everything was delicious.

We last visited in 2014 for my wife's 40th birthday and found it to be fabulous. It's still just as good. A brand, creative menu, great wine list and cocktails all delivered by excellent knowledgeable service staff make this a great dining option. The risotto was spectacular as were the other dishes we tried. Thanks for the consistency!

We tried the Miami Spice menu which was delicious. But the portions are way too big which is a pity because we left most of the food in our plates but still left the restaurant feeling bloated. I would focus more on the quality and less on the quantity.
