Great macadamia encrusted snapper! Also, shrimp provencal - VERY good! Great food...not so thrilled with the craziness out on the sidewalk during spring break, but can't avoid it on Ocean Dr.

I traveled to Miami with a group celebrating two birthdays. Sergio was so friendly when I made the reservation and the server was awesome and very accommodating. We had a wonderful time and the food was amazing!!! They even brought out the bongos to sing happy birthday to me and my daughter. It was so special. The staff made this a very memorable birthday for us. Thank you so much!!!

The service was exceptional and the food was amazing! The environment could have been a little quieter and more personal however it was not really a big issue for us. The jumbo shrimp scampi was perfect!

Our expectations were pretty high, so that may have affected our judgement a bit. If you’re expecting the food to be amazing, then you might be slightly disappointed. The food is really good, but the details and flavors don’t blow you away. The host was excellent, he offered us seating of our choice, offered information about the menus and specials... did not pull out the chair or anything but was really warm and welcoming. The server was also very nice but not around much, took our drink and food order and then let the rest of the staff take care of us. The manager stopped by to check on us also, always good.

Service was friendly but not quick. Outdoor ambience was fitting for a first time South Beach experience. We ate outside. It was noisy due to the excellent live music. Difficult to have a conversation. Indoor dining looked lovely, but we chose to stay outside. Food was very good but expensive for what we ordered. Martinis were very good. One of the only places to dine for seafood in South Beach. Would recommend is you want a nice menu for options.

A little pricey, but the food was most excellent and the service was enjoyable, set at a leisurely pace. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. We sat out at the sidewalk which is very nice if the breeze is not too heavy.

Bang Bang Shrimp is great but only 3 shrimp is a skimpy amount in my opinion. Macadamias crusted snapper & grouper were delicious.

A great selection of raw seafood, the platter with oysters was very good. Plenty of other choice though portions on the large size. To finish the house key lime pie was delicious
