The pastrami short ribs are arguably the best meal in South Florida.

Food was nourishing and sparked my palate. Had the best Mother’s Day brunch ever. Our server was funny, nice, and took amazing pictures. The food was served just as fast as we cleared our plates. 5 out of 5 stars. Seriously, no complaints.

Service, atmosphere, and quality of food were excellent, albeit a bit pricey. What really, really bothered us was how loud the music was. Even after they turn d the volume down at our request, you had a difficult time speaking snd hearing. When we go out to dinner it is to spend time with each other, and that means talking. If we wanted to go to a concert, Ariete would not be our first choice.

Great service, mood, and attention to detail. We ordered several dishes, some were fantastic and some were not.

Highlights: Ceviche was incredibly good. Bursts of acidity and it was served very chilled.
Log desert with edible meringue mushrooms were divine. Bone Marrow oysters were incredibly decadent and tasty. The house roles were insanely good, kind of like a buttered pretzel.

Disappointments: Creamed Yuka was ice cold and extremely dense, not pleasant to eat.
Snapper was way overcooked, chewy like dry chicken, and had a slight fishy oder on the skin specifically, although ravioli that was served with it was amazing. Charcuterie board: blue cheese was excellent but pate tased a bit old, strong iron flavor, and rillettes were missing moisture/fat.

Despite having a reservation, had to wait to be seated.
Menu is very limited.
Waiter was nice but slow. Waited forever for coffee.
Food is so-so and over-priced.

Venison was good but was equivalent to London broil rather than chops or tenderloin. Wine prices were over the top.

Food was good but not great. Expensive for what they give you. HOWEVER, they charged us $5 for a second round of dinner rolls. This at a restaurant that charges $125 for duck for 2! That alone will keep me from ever returning.

We had a brunch reservation for 2 pm on Sunday. And while I understand that you sometimes have to wait for a table to open up we waited over an hour while there were people that had already paid but wouldn’t leave. It is unfair to have people waiting and allow others to stay beyond a reasonable time after they have clearly finished and paid for their meal.

HOLY COW, What an amazing place. The food was spectacular. Cuban -American cuisine elevated to the highest level possible. Great service , Holly was spectacular and very attentive, and excellent cocktails that truly represent Miami. Chef Beltran truly is an artist in the kitchen. It is really nice to see young chefs elevate food to yet another level. CONGRATULATIONS

This was our second visit. We celebrated my birthday there last Friday. Despite having reservations, they never have your table ready. We specified outdoor seating, socially distanced. I don’t even think they read the requests made on reservations. The hostess simply kept repeating a rehearsed response: “We don’t guarantee seating.” Anyhow, after waiting a little, we got our table. We were disappointed to see that the menu was completely different than advertised on their website. It’s seasonal & they don’t update it on open table. So, if you’re going for anything you see on the menu published here, be advised you won’t find it. Our server, Yvonne, was very nice. We took our own champagne & were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable corkage fee ($25), as the rest of the menu is pricey. The only item we really enjoyed from the current menu was the scallop appetizer. Their menu is limited, with unusual protein choices. The venison was good. The snapper had a “crispy” skin, but tasted burnt. We were disappointed by the food overall, so much so we decided to skip dessert. Bill was $200. I think this place is all hype. The sister restaurant Nave has much better food, though same issue with hostess & reservations. The place is very pretty. Service is good. Food at Ariete was disappointing.

From our arrival to the presentation of the check the entire evening was absolutely brilliant there is not one thing I can find fault with.

Okay one ever so slight disappointment. I had wanted to order the duck for 2. It’s a limited item and it sold out. It just gives us a reason to return and dine again.

Thank you to the staff of Ariete for a incredible evening. Especially Richard D for his service and flan suggestion.

We ate a several high-end, high reputation restaurants on our trip, and this was the only disappointment. Most of the food was good except the snapper which was overcooked and dry as cardboard. Even without the inexcusable snapper this would have been a disappointment. When you’re spending several hundred dollars for two, the food needs to be exceptional and this wasn’t. We had great experiences at Uchi, La Mar, and Stubborn Seed at similar prices (although slightly less expensive) and were expecting the same at Ariete so it was especially disappointing.

The restaurant was amazing. We were taking someone out from out of town and it was the perfect spot for brunch. Great food and ambiance. You won't regret it. They had forgotten to give us our bacon and without asking us just told us they would take it off from our check and still bring it out. This is true customer service.

Brunch in Ariete’s lush patio is outstanding. Service, food the entire experience is a fantastic escape from the real world. Chef Mike, Chef Devin and the entire team present brunch entrées with their own take, many improved from their boring traditional versions. Items such as the Frita Benedict, and the crème brûlée French toast and the Chug Burger are excellent, items change there often so even if these are not on the menu, there are plenty of incredible options to select from sweet, savory, light and indulgent. Add a bottomless mimosa, you won’t be sorry!
