Very good and attentive service but meals are not top notch. Scallops too cooked and too salty, nothing is very good
What a tourist trap. We sat down on patio and ordered a couple glasses of wine as we looked over the menu
The table next to us had their food delivered while we were waiting on our wine and reviewing the menu. The smell of their seafood was horrid. It was such a strong pungent fishy smell, once our wine was delivered we asked for the check and immediately started looking for a Plan B
Do yourself a favor and pass on this place.
The prices are high as are most things in South Beach area. South Beach seems to think it is NYC with their pricing. It seems that the area likes to take the money of Europeans who don't know any better as to the US. The food here was very good and the service was fine, not outstanding. The dinner was for business for 3 of us. I would recommend this restaurant for the food.
Great service, great food
Great experience for a special occasion, sat on the patio and enjoyed live music and the entertainment walking by on the side walk. Food and service were both excellent.
Amazing!!! Love the service and the food!! Trusted Marvin, our amazing server’s recommendations and was not steered wrong.
Will be back, and will recommend to friends.
Dear Guest, We’re grateful for your fabulous 5-star review, it brings us joy knowing you enjoyed the entire dining experience. Marvin sure does an excellent job with his recommendation as well as attentive services and sends his regards. We look forward to welcoming you again on your next travel to South Beach. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
We always stop here when we are in Miami. Consistently delicious food, great service and great live music! Tap your toes while you eat!
Dear Maureen B, Thanks for your kind comments and it’s a pleasure to welcome you each time as our repeat guest. It’s really a pleasure knowing you enjoy the cuisine, attentive services and live music each time you’ve visited. Let us know when you’re ready for another wonderful experience, we look forward to creating more memories together. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Overpriced (and I’m used to NYC restaurants), way too noisy way too salty way too expensive by about 50% for what we had.
Why the hell do you have a live bad BLASTING music. This isn’t a spring break crowd.
Dear Stuart, Thanks for choosing to dine with us recently while visiting South Beach. We’re sorry to see your review as our intent is to provide an overall memorable experience. Please accept my invitation so that I can personally oversee your experience ensuring it’s a great one. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Excellent food and service... Sit inside if you want peaceful and quiet or outside to see all the action. Last night was our second time and both times have been great! Thanks!
Dear guest, Thank you so much for dining with us recently and leaving us this wonderful review. Indeed, outside is excellent for people watching while being serenaded by the live musicians and inside is on the quieter side. We look forward to welcoming you for the 3rd time, you know the saying, it’s a charm. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Amazing dinner experience! We are so impressed
We chose this restaurant for its great location and inspired menu, and we were not wrong. Everything was ideal. The food and cocktails were delicious (best mule I've ever had made with fresh ginger and perfect proportions). Even our server was top notch.
Food was amazing. Chilean Sea Bass and Grouper were fantastic. Best Key Lime Pie ever!! Service also great from drinks at the bar right through dinner to settling the check. Definitely worth a visit.
Dear SamH, We are so glad you spent your evening with us and loved it. Special thanks for noting the Key Lime Pie which has just won the award for best pie in the country! We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Our waiter was fantastic and the food was delicious!
They brought key lime pie out for my friend’s birthday which was great. Would definitely go back next time I’m in Miami!
Totally yummy. Great views. Awesome service !!!!!!!!
Dear guest, Thank you for your praises. Happy you enjoyed our cuisine, excellent views and attentive services. We all look forward to welcoming you again. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Tasty food, great service and fun spot for people watching
Dear guest, We really appreciate your rating and your review, it’s a pleasure to know you enjoyed your time with us. Glad you spent your evening people watching as well since our corner location provides front row seats. See you again the next time your travels bring you to beautiful South Beach. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Great food and service. Recommend white winter drink.
Dear Izzy, We really appreciate your review on our excellent food and services. Thanks for recommending the White Winter cocktail, our mixologist is thrilled you enjoyed it. Can’t wait to welcome you again, there are plenty of items you’ll enjoy from our menus. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
The food was incredible!!!! And the live music was everything.
Dear guest, Thank you for your short and sweet review. Happy you enjoyed the incredible food as well as the live music by our talented musicians. Please allow us to welcome you back for more outstanding services and cuisine the next time you’re visiting. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Excelente restaurante para comer delicioso, buen ambiente, presentación de palos muy buena, sabor de la comida genial, y muy buena atención. Totalmente recomendable
Si hay algo que me moleste de los EEUU es que te quieran obligar a pagar la propina que ellos quieran. Es costumbre.... si, desde la época de la esclavitud. Les debería dar vergüenza, con los precios que cobran que los empleados tengan que discutir con un cliente por una propina. Y que dependan de ello. El Estado no debería permitir esos sueldos tan bajos, y poner un sueldo mínimo digno. Los empresarios se enriquecen, los clientes pagan precios altos y encima les quieren obligar a pagarles lo que les falta de sueldo a los camareros...... una vergüenza. No existen los Sindicatos en este País para defender los derechos del trabajador ??????
A mi no me obliga nadie a pagar nada que yo no quiera, y en este caso fue el colmo.... un camarero salió corriendo detrás nuestra por la calle para recriminarnos que no había dejado el importe de propina QUE ELLOS ME QUERÍAN IMPONER, sino menos.
Lo dicho..... una vergüenza . NI VOLVERÉ, NI LO RECOMENDARE .
Wonderful experience all around! Alejandro was very helpful and made the meal even more enjoyable.
Dear Lindsay, thanks for taking the time to leave us your 5-star review. We value your comments on Alejandro’s services and would love to welcome you back for another enjoyable evening! Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
First night on vacation!! Excellent service, meal and spot!!!
Dear guest, What an honor it is you chose to spend your first evening with us. Pleased to know you had an amazing time and looking forward to serving you on many more occasions. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
The service and food was great.
Looking forward to my next trip to South Beach.
Dear Rubins, Many thanks for choosing to spend your evening with us. Glad you had an amazing time and enjoyed our tantalizing menu and services. We look forward to welcoming you back! Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
We had a perfect dinner. Pleasant place, good service, and the food was wonderful: the oysters, the bisque, the fish and the dessert. I strongly recommend the whole fish of the day. I’ll surely be back.
Dear AnaC, Your short and sweet review made us smile! Happy you had a perfect dinner with us and thanks for your recommendation. We’re certainly looking forward to welcoming you again. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Our waiter was wonderful! We didn’t realize that the restaurant was part of a hotel and had to overhear people checking in / complaining about their room keys etc .. the drinks weren’t great but the octopus app was awesome! We both got the saffron seafood risotto as our entree and everything was cooked well with a really nice flavor
Dear HeatherC, We’re happy you enjoyed your meal with us as well as the friendly services from our staff. Please let us know what cocktail you ordered as our bartender takes pleasure into creating delicious concoction and would appreciate the feedback. Thanks for your valued feedback. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
25 th Anniversary
Dear guest, We are honored you spent your 25th Anniversary with us. Thanks for your perfect 5-star review and we all wish you a lifetime of happiness! Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Delicious food and excellent service. Sat outside on Ocean Drive in South Beach so it was not quiet, but entertaining. I’m sure indoor dining is a much quieter experience. Would highly recommend.
Dear FoodieNYgal, Thanks for your kind comments and it’s a pleasure knowing you enjoyed your evening with us. Indeed, the inside can be quieter for dining while the patio dining is entertaining for people-watching as well as to enjoy the live music. Let us know when you’re ready for another wonderful experience. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
We have been here before and this time we had to share it with our friends. It was just as always, perfect!

Being from out of town we wanted to try sea food right in the heart of Miami Beach. This restaurant was fantastic. Great service, food and wine. Being outside on a warm Spring night couldn't be better.
Dear StephMan, Thank you for choosing us for your seafood restaurant, we are honored you had a fantastic time. Happy you enjoyed the spring air, cuisine, friendly services and wine list. Please allow us to serve you again the next time you’re visiting. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Great dining experience overall! The food was great, the service was great and the weather was inviting. We sat on the patio where we enjoyed music and the atmosphere. Our reservation got us right in. We would highly recommend this place!

Dear Skate5678, Thank you so very much for being a repeat diner. Happy knowing you always enjoy our offerings. See you soon again, there are some new items on the menu for you to try! Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
Lovely restaurant in the heart of South Beach. We chose to sit inside which was quiet and perfect for a nice business dinner. The food was fabulous (especially loved the mussels! And thank you to our waiter for sharing the ingredients of the sauce so we can try making it ourselves!), the service was great; enough attention to us but not overbearing. Overall, a great experience. I would highly recommend it.
Dear MaDaMiMi, Thank you for your lovely review. Pleased to know you chose us for your business dinner and appreciated the right amount of service from our staff. Glad to share the recipe for the mussels, you’ll have to let us know if yours or ours was better! We’d love to welcome you again in the future. Warm regards, Pascal Pinault, Food & Beverage Director
