Everything about this place is outstanding but in particular the service. The food is fabulous and the physical space very pretty. When we were there the outside was covered in scaffolding which takes away from the outside dining space but when the work is done it will be back to being the best in the area. Very classy restaurant- somewhat rare here. No people trying to drag you in. The best part was as we left, and were outside, our waiter ran out to find us to tell us we had overtipped! We didn’t realize the tip was already included. The honesty was incredible! We love this restaurant and will return.
Such a tasty meal! We sat indoors which I was kinda sad about because outside is where all the action is at, but it turned out to be cozy and the place filled up later so it felt good. Bruno was an amazing waiter - very attentive and fun / playful too. We had an awesome time, it was in a great little hoppin' area of South Beach, and I'd definitely go back. The ahi tuna salad was quite delicious and the tuna high quality. And very, very big wine pours (if you are brave enough to order the BIG one.) Oh the live dual guitarists outside was lovely and you could hear the music inside quite well too. If i had any drawback to say is that the inside is lots of tile / quite cold and sterile if there's not a lot of people in there, and the outside area in comparison is so cozy. So that's my only suggestion is to cozy the place up a bit.
Love this place, I go every year for Valentines .. The manager Mariano was very attentive and courteous. Our waiter was good as well.. food was yummy
Excellent Ahi tuna and the Cream Brûlée was really good. Cesar Salad not so much - heavy on dressing.
We were entertaining some guests from out of town . Service was good and the food was excellent. Right in South Beach so a very busy area. The wine selection was good but not great and the seafood was excellent. I would return...
Great food and attentive staff with great live music. Fish dishes are really good.
Service was attentive, reservation recognized without problem. Fish was very good - bothe the almond crusted snapper and the crab crusted grouper. Very tasty, and portions appropriately sized. Overall, very pleasant experience.
EVERYTHING was outstanding, the food , the service, the wine selection were all great. Excellent waiter. WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND IT TO FRIENDS!
Great dining experience. For appetizers had tumeric shrimp and Cavetelli pasta. Shrimp had a little too much tumeric-fingers were yellowish until the next morning. Girlfriend and I split an entree, came split from the kitchen. No additional work needed.
Even though exterior of restaurant was under construction, had an excellent meal.
Great food, wonderful service most interesting people watching & we enjoyed the Spanish guitars, too!
This restaurant was a huge disappointment. The octopus tasted like chicken. I was shocked at the experience given all the good reviews. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
This was the third time we have eaten here and the food has always been of the highest quality with friendly service. To be recommended.
Aged Manhattan was outstanding
Comida muy rica, probamos la paella y estuvo muy rica, creo que el precio es adecuado por lo que comes. La atención excelente, fuimos en viernes y había un dio tocando la guitarra que le dio un excelente ambiente, nos gustó bastante.
We had an amazing time. The service was fantastic and we appreciated all the recommendations. The server was very knowledgeable.
Too expensive compared to food quality.
Great food! Evening marred by overly loud, highly obtrusive and sadly neglectful server who appears to believe himself to be the reason for the restaurant’s long success. Wrong choices for him!
Great food as always and outstanding service!
Wonderful meal with outstanding service.
Great Menu, great wine list and great service. Not cheap but definitely worth the price. I would go back there in a heartbeat.
We loved this restaurant! The food was delicious!! The service was great. The wait staff was very attentive. We will definitely eat there the next time we're in South Beach!!
We had a delicious meal delicately prepared with real ingredients and artfully served. The staff was knowledgeable, kind and professional!
Food was great. Minor issue that was handled promptly and professionally. Pretty loud with the doors closed, but the Creme brûlée more than makes up for it!
A Fish Called Avalon is simply great! The food is awesome and we highly recommend it. The paella is amazing and is made with orzo in a delicious broth with fennel permeating through the rest of the amazing flavors. We shared everything! We also had the ahi appetizer and it was just awesome. They have a very good wine list as well. The service was very attentive. The only thing I would say it that it can get pretty loud. We would have eaten outside but the weather didn't cooperate that day. When we get back to South Beach, we will be back there.
What a wonderful meal. We used Open Table to book our reservation (probably not necessary on a Monday night but wasn't sure). Our service was fantastic.. and the food was amazing. If you want to share a meal: get the paella. It was fantastic. More than enough seafood for two people. The grouper and snapper were fantastic too. If you sit outside, you have a great meal and can enjoy a little people watching. Are bill averaged $50 per person (tip) included and we didn't have any drinks.. the only thing I would make sure you look at your bill because even with a party of 4, we had an 18% gratuity added.
What a find - this place was recommended to us by the tourist spot. The fish was amazing, great wine list and chicken so delicious. Right on Ocean Drive - great location.
I love this restaurant. The location is great and the food is good. It's pricey though - but the staff are great.
Food was incredible. Scallops appetizer and crab crusted grouper was outstanding. Two of the best dishes we have ever had. Salads were a little disappointing compared to everything else. Service was spot on. Outside seating with live music makes for a great atmosphere.
Excellent food especially the fish selections. Wonderful service.
Patio area currently under construction.
Everything served here was fantastic. We had chocolate martinis at the bar, lobster bisque soup, and seared scallops before our entree’s. I had the saffron seafood risotto and my wife had the jumbo shrimp scampi provencal, and finished with a chocolate lava cake.
The service was fantastic, the only negative was the construction work on the hotel above the restaurant ( they were not actively working, so it just impeded the view).
A really cool place in an old art deco hotel lookin gout onto Ocean Drive and the ocean beyond. The fish special, a crab-encrusted grouper, was excellent, as was the snapper. On a Sunday night, the street in front was blocked off for a market and the whole neighborhood had a vibrant energy. It was really fun with great food and service.
Loved it! I had the whole fish and hubbie had macadamia crusted snapper. Delicious food. Wonderful service. Keep up the great work! Restaurant was a vendor and sponsor for Art Deco weekend so got to try paella - also great! Hotel exterior being renovated currently, so scaffolding over outside seating area.
We really enjoyed the fantastic service our main server was wonderful, the salmon was if not the best I ever had was very close. The fish of the day was completely presented in an appropriate way. I highly recommend fo
Absolutely fabulous meal and service! Our server was Alex and he was attentive yet absent. Perfect!!!
Last night of our vacation - set on the terrace, fun to view people passing and feel the cool night air -- great live music (unexpected!) - wonderful service and food!
Great service. We were promptly seated at our reservation time. Initially we were shown a table on the street we asked for something else away from foot traffic and were shown to a really nice table on the porch. Our waiter was spot on prompt good knowledge of menu. My wife and I both adore snapper and grouper. We spotted dishes of each on the menu that looked appealing.
We ordered to share. Waiter had each dish split onto two plates and served individually. Great idea food stayed warm and fresh. Food was nicely plated and very tasty, fish really fresh. Nicely they do a 9 oz. wine pour for just a tad more than the traditional 6 oz pour a nice touch. All and all a great dinner!
Overrated, established but tired restaurant.
Had the Spanish Octopus as starter: tender octopus but too much vinaigrette sauce.
Caesar salad was good.
Macadamia-Crusted Snapper: Dry fish, a bit soury off-taste, reminiscent of fish going bad. Crust is fine, cooked to perfect balance. Spinach risotto overcooked, almost mashed potato consistency.
Side: Asian style baby beans: stir fried greens with soy sauce ad garlic: bit too much fried and excess soy sauce, burnt greens and salty taste
Side: Steamed Asparagus: bit over steamed again, mushy consistency.
Desert: Chef Kal's Cheescake - good cheesecake, blackberrry gone bad even though frozen.
Facility undergoing refurbishmet, bit empty Good music!
Unfortunate dining experience, offset by meeting an old friend.
All dishes we had were amazing! Spanish octopus and salmon grill were exceptional. The best creme brûlée we have ever had. Highly recommended.
The food was very good. A nice selection of various Seafood Entrees, good wine selection and the service was very good. Would highly recommend if you are looking for good place that takes pride in making yours, a quality dining experience.
New Years Eve on South Beach
The service was real good
