This was our 4th dinner at Arieta..the overall experience was very special!
The Chef/owner, mentored and trained by Norman Van Aken and Michael Schwartz graced our table where we had a chance to learn about him and extol upon our delightful meal
We ordered a dozen of the grilled oysters and lapped up the shells like you would do an oyster stew..grilled to perfection and the sauce was introduced to our freshly baked garlic roll. Dunk dunk...
We ordered the lamb ribs and the short rib pastrami.. wow and wow... which went beautifully with a 12 year old Rhone Lirac that I corkaged with. They do have a nice wine list if you don’t corkage (25$)
We shared the brussels and sweet potato sides
and saved room for 3 desserts... their donut, flan, and dolce de leche.. all fabulous.. the flan was made with mushrooms which blew us away.. a recipe the chef got from a San Francisco restaurant
Highly recommend Arieta..

The ambiance at Ariete was great! Not too packed and the food was phenomenal. I had the Frita Benedict’s which were out of this world and the guava and cheese pancakes that were even better. The texture of the pancakes were amazing! I can’t even explain it but trust me (a stranger on the internet). Overall the entire experience was phenomenal! Will definitely be back!

Really disappointed. We were ignored for 40 minutes during our meal. We mostly had to pour our own wine and water. Our starters arrived almost 30 minutes apart. Only when we asked what was going on did our server say that they were down 2 waitstaff. She also said the manager would come talk with us, which he did not. They did cover our deserts but by that point we were so exhausted from complaining and the distraction of such poor service that there would be no way we would ever return again.

We’ve been here several times. The food is always good but not a huge selection and pretty pricey. The ambience is fabulous. We had the worst service though from a lady who never smiled or even seemed interested in being there. She literally told us we had to order all the food at once because she was too busy. Not worth the price for that kind of service.

The ambiance was great. The server took a long time to come to the high top. He did not know the menu. He took down the wrong drink order. The drinks took way too long as the bartender was busy chatting with wait staff. A cheese plate took 25 minutes to come out. The drinks where $20+ each with short pours at best. The food was good but the plates were small and also took a long time to come out. It unfortunate because the place has a good feel to it when you enter.

I really wanted to love this place, especially after all the great reviews I had read, but I was really disappointed. The food wasn't bad per se but everything I received was extremely bland. We started off with the eggplant appetizer. Although it had good components, none of it really came together. I think this dish would probably be better if it were warm, had a little less of the sweet glaze/sauce, and had more cheese. The local fish (tilefish) and paella were extremely bland and had no flavor. Also, the fish was not cooked properly since it was a little chewy. Lastly, we got the banana tres leches and it had no bananas in it (or at least no banana flavor) and the tres leches was not bad, but was completely forgettable, and you can get a better tres leches from Publix. I will not be returning since everything was so lackluster.

Our second visit -- it actually outdid our first sensational visit! We went back to celebrate a milestone birthday with five family members who flew down for the occasion from NYC -- spanning three generations, I might add, and all Ultra-Foodies! Our group of seven were treated to the most amazing dinner experience. We wisely shared more than a handful of appetizers and small plates as well as...hmmm...I think four or five of the main courses and sides. Everything was marvelous and we ended up with a few minor tussles over who'd get the last bite from this plate or that. Favorites? Pretty much every dish that was served! Standouts for us were the venison, oven-roasted oysters, scallops, the salads we all shared...and the brussels sprouts! We stopped just short of licking our plates! Thanks, Ariete and Chef Beltran for making this birthday celebration so memorable!

Creative menu well-executed. Excellent service. Everything tasted amazing! Portions are adequate to large. There are so many interesting and delicious choices, you’ll go home with a doggy bag. The famous flan is indeed fabulous and worthy of the award. Churro donuts, while tasty, did not satisfy our churros craving. Still, lots to love!!

The service and food are OUTSTANDING. Chef Beltran is definitely one of Miami's BEST! He's killing it. Fresh, local ingredients combined in the best possible way. For brunch, frita eggs benedict and the short rib omelette cannot be missed. Softest, most perfectly cooked short rib ever. The pickled tomatillos he adds are super SPECIAL. The pastelitos by @pastelitopapii at brunch are definitely worth the visit on a Sunday. Can't wait to come back for dinner!

I was very pleasantly surprised by the menu and the food on my first visit, but when i took my friends again for the second time last thuraday, the food was not good at all. I don t know if it was a one off bad cook or something else but i was so disappointed. The rabbit ravioli were half cooked, the burrata too dry, inly the deserts were very good👌🏼
