FOOD, AMBIANCE, SERVICE #1 FOOD AS GOOD OR BETTER AS IN ITALY PRICES GREAT TOO
One of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to in Miami
Everything about this place was exceptional. I have one small gripe, however, and that was the restaurant was too hot. They had the door open and hot air was coming in so I asked them if they could close the door which they did. It helped a little but I don't think they had air conditioning on just ceiling fans.
I was satisfied and glady thank the service for being patient
As far as prices, quality and quantity very good . Attentive server, decent wine, the appetizer we ordered was very good, enough for two people to share, the main courses were very good also, my wife had veal piccata and I had the steak, both very tasteful. we were full and had no room for dessert.
I found this restaurant online and read some reviews and looked at their menu which looked amazing, so I thought why not take my family out for a nice dinner. Upon arriving at 7:30 pm on a Saturday the restaurant was completely empty and blazing hot (it was hotter inside the restaurant than it was outside in the August Miami Heat). We were brought our menus which were completely different than the online menus. ALL of the food we were looking forward to trying was not available. We made some compromises and ordered off the new menu. The food that came out was fast food quality and the presentation was even worse. Some items were overcooked beyond recognition, while some orders were wrong altogether. Everything was doused in lemon juice as to cover up the taste of poor quality ingredients. Unless you're looking for a miserable time, find somewhere else to go.
I waited to get back to Miami just for this restaurant. My favorite in the world. I loved the asparagus flan and mostly the Carmelized pear and ricotta handmade Raviolis. My 7 year old had two whole orders. These people can also pair some wine!
Amazing asparagus flan! The steak was cooked to perfection.
I've past by this restaurant hundreds of time, but had never thought of dining there until a coupon opportunity falls he'd on my computer. I bought it and I am so glad I did!!!!!!!! Delicious, romantic, great service and just a lovely spot to enjoy a gourmet meal.
Not your "typical" South Beach restaurant - this is truly a dining experience. Chef's tasting menu is the way to go - be open to new things, and this can be customized around allergies or specific requests. Can dine solo, with a date, or as a group. This is definitely a "repeat" place for me!
A MIAMI BEACH FIXTURE SINCE 1990`S. AT OUR FIRST VISIT A FEW YEARS AGO I WAS IMPRESSED BY THE SETUP. A WAIT STAFF OF TWO AND ONE FEMALE CHEF ALONE IN THE KITCHEN. ON THAT VISIT SHE DID A REMARKABLE JOB WITH TIMELY PREPARATION OF EXCELLENT DISHES.THIS VISIT FEATURED A MALE CHEF AND AGAIN TWO VERY NICE WAITERS/OWNERS.WE FOUND THE MUSIC AND THE LIMITED MENU TO BE DATED.WITH SEVERAL TABLES FREE IT STILL TOOK 3HOURS FOR THIS DINNER FOR TWO! SOME DISHES WERE GOOD OTHERS WERE SENT BACK. SADLY NOT MEMORABLE AND EXPENSIVE. POTENTIAL NOT REACHED THIS TIME BUT AM SURE THEY WILL HAVE BETTER DAYS.
The service was very slow, even though only three tables were occupied. The main course menu selection was very limited (3-4 dishes) and not all of them were available.
The dessert was not even defrosted.
The food at Escopazzo is always fresh and perfectly composed--and delicious. It is much more like a restaurant in Italy than a restaurant in Miami Beach in that there are no frills (no foam or unexpected flavor combinations) but rather just really good cooking. Everything is handcrafted. The restaurant is especially accommodating to vegetarians, which is actually (strangely) hard to find here.
We found the restaurant online googling Organic Restaurants. What a find! The food is truly spectacular. The staff is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this place to those who love high-quality, delicious Italian Food. WOW!
We didn't enjoy our meal or service, we had a group of 4 and no one got one thing that we really enjoyed, we shared 3 appetizers and each one of us got an entree, their menu is very limited so by trying 4 entrees and 3 appetizers we probably tried half of it. Food quality is not there, prices are way too high. Not a place I would recommend or ever go to again.
Nice place to eat, nice ambience. First time eating organic Italian and my family and I were very pleased.
The food was good. The dessert was excellent. We found the menu to be a bit pricey for what it offers It's a tiny restaurant, with about ten tables, cute inside but its in the middle of Washington Avenue and very hard to park. Even though the food was good...don't know if we'll return. Miami has so many great restaurant.
Been going here for years. Menu has changed a bit, not to my liking. Portions are VERY SMALL and VERY EXPENSIVE. As an example, a ravioli dish with 4 pieces was $35! In a really seedy area, a little uncomfortable.
Organic, Gluten Free, and Vegan options!! Absolutely loved our meal!
HORRIFIC service and yet 25% tip was forced on our bill...and the food was barely edible (with the exception of an appetizer). How could Rachel Ray recommend this place???
