Terrible service !!! It could be because they add the tip to your bill no matter how many are in the party.. therefore there was no incentive for the waiter to give good service .
Never asked if we wanted more to drink, never refilled the water glasses .. took the order someone else dropped of the food.. and no service after except to leave the bill..
Was hoping it would be a new place to hang out when visiting Miami ( monthly) but unfortunately I won't be returning
I ordered blackened fish, but I'm not sure this kitchen is familiar with such a technique and their product was very dry. I think their clientele is more a burger and drink clientele.
Did not like the menu and the waiter was a dud. Will not be going back. We go to the theater and wanted to find a. Ice place for dinner but this was not it!
The food was average at best, and the service was absolutely terrible!
Made reservations but it was open seating and very busy. Food was ok. Service was very slow. It was prior to a Miami Heat game but they should staff for that.
Nice feel to the place, atmosphere was very cool and laid back.
Me and my wife went to Miami last weekend to go on the Cruise to Bimini, and to attend the Art festival. We found a real gem in Biscayne Tavern, the food was GREAT!!!, the location was convenient and the service was outstanding.
We had a reservation and they had to clear people from our table. Took us 20 minutes to just get menus. Over an hour to get good. Brought out people's meals at random and appetizer came last. Staff was not apologetic and overwhelmed. It was the 2nd night of the soldout Adele concert. They should have been prepared. They were out of many items. Food we gut was actually good. But I would never go back due to terrible service.
Used to be a pre arena spot and it was horrible - the tuna came out purple and smelled funny and it took 30 minutes for hummus
The crispy tater-tots were a delicious adult version of a childhood favorite. The shrimp tacos were another stand out dish.
Been there a year ago and food/service was great. This time they seemed to be understaffed, a request for additional salad dressing was addressed as 'we are very busy' and never delivered, and waiter was hard to find throughout the meal. Disappointing!
The Main course was very bland. But the drinks were great!
The food was good and there a large beer selection, however the service was very poor. It took forever to get menus, and even longer to get our drinks. The waiter never checked on us after we got our food, did not bring water or ask for more drinks, and was rather rude. And there were only 3 other parties in the restaurant, so they were not busy at all.
For appetizers, I had the wedge salad which would be very hard to mess up and my husband had the crab cakes and according to him they were bland. For dinner, we both had the blackened mahi-mahi & shrimp and it was good, not amazing but good. What makes this place exceptional is not necessarily the food but the service which was amazing. Had we gave come here and paid full price for our meal, this review would have been a 2 star but because we got an amazing LivingSocial coupon, it was well worth it.
We arrived early for our 7:15 reservation. There was no one at the hostess station and we waited for 10 minutes without anyone showing up. A waitress came over to enter an order into the computer but would not look at us. We did a lap around the place and could not find anyone that worked there. The three people behind the bar looked extremely overwhelmed and unhappy. There wouldn't have been anywhere for us to sit anyway despite having a reservation. After about 15 minutes, we decided this was not going to play out well so we just left and found a different place to eat.
I went there and it was Happy Hour. Great food and drinks at reduced prices. I was very happy.
Please!, Management!, do something about the service
Nice menu and good ambiance. Service was good.
It was what I expected. Nothing spectacular but it is a decent restaurant for a late night meal in downtown Miami. We will go again..
Soggy sweet potato fries; salmon was substituted by some white fish the waiter insisted was salmon. Generous portions.
Appetizers and drinks were good.
We found this restaurant through Living Social. Fortunately it was a great experience. Our server, Pamela, was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was not very busy as it was a Wednesday night. My husband had the Shrimp Dynamite and i had the Tuna Tartare for appetizers. They were both great, but the Tuna was better! My husband said he'd get that instead of the shrimp next time. For dinner i had the blackened Mahi Mahi with the yasmine rice and asparagus, it was delicious! My husband had the ribs, and again, mine was better. He liked them but he wasn't too impressed. Overall however, we did enjoy ourselves and would definitely be back.
My friends & I ate lunch from the offerings in the Miami Spice menu. The Mahi was not well seasoned & the sauce was too heavy. The Pastrami sandwich was oily. Server was pleasant. When we walked in, no one was there to greet us for several minutes. One of my friends had dinner there before & gave it good reviews. She was disappointed as well.
Found this place looking for somewhere near the AA arena; the food was very good the table started with the tuna tartare absolutely delicious but the Terra chips were just little pieces like they dumped the end of the bag, the shrimp dynamite was the perfect blend of crispy, spicy and creamy. Then we shared with churasco steak the chicken milaese and the sliders, again all were very good. The service was meh he was very polite just didn't have much personality. Overall we quite enjoyed the meal and the restaurant itself which located in the b2 hotel was very comfortable. Would definitely go back.
great for before going to the AAA but I had eaten here a year before and the food was MUCH better. I had a salad with shrimp for a $6 add on and they were the tiny frozen shrimp - so didnt really eat much. the drinks were great and the staff was sweet.
They had a nice booth ready for us when we arrived, but the place was extremely noise. It took 8 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us once we were seated and to place a drink order. The drinks took another 7 minutes to arrive and even longer for the water and side of ice we ordered. The food was poor. I asked for a hamburger with a pink center. The burger was cook WELL DONE. If I had another 45 minutes I would have reordered. I will NOT be going back or recommending this place.
great place for a quick bite, and beers and some heavy dinners
Food was good for a "tavern" but the service was poor at best. We were trying to just grab a quick sandwich and drink on the way to an event at a local venue. It took over ten minutes to get a server to come over and 20 minutes to get two sandwiches. If the place were busy that may be acceptable but with less than 50 percent of the seats filled this is not acceptable.
We were on the pay no mind list......waiter didn't write down order and of course it was wrong but since he never bothered to come back to see if everything was ok, the stuff was scraped off and burger eaten anyway. Had to chase him for another drink. Had to chase him for more water and desert that never came so we got our check up front and left without it. Doesn't matter that it was busy pre-concert, waiter 101 should still be followed.
After being blown away at eating at a food concession by the same name at the American Airlines arena, and making a special trip to come here for a repeat performance, I was informed it was not the same ownership.
I proceeded to order similar menu items (not believing the waiter).
The brisket sandwich was a dried out pot roast.
The short rib slider was an inedible overdone hockey puck.
This was anything but a gastropub,
It seemed to lack energy as well.
Various reviews praised it - I could not believe it.
We love to go to Sunday Heat games - the only downside is that many of the area restaurants are closed on Sunday so we often ended up eating mediocre, overpriced food at Bayside. So we were thrilled to discover Bayside Tavern - we loved the atmosphere and the friendly service. They have a great selection of craft beers and the food was delicious and interesting!
My husband had the smoked brisket and fried onion sandwich, which he loved. My son had the seafood cobb,which was beautiful and delicious. My daughter had the fish and chips - also delicious. And I had the crabcake sliders from the appetizer menu with the Brussels Sprouts side. I thought I was getting a light meal but it was substantial and amazing.
The only minor downside was that they were out of a couple of the menu options we were interested in, especially some of the few available to my vegetarian daughter - but we were extremely happy with our meal
This will definitely be our regular pre-game spot!
Didn't blow me away, but was quite nice. Good craft beer selection. Service was good, but one annoyance was top was included, which wasn't obvious at the time, so I almost left a huge tip. Be aware, this may be a Miami regulation.
In the past, we have loved this restaurant but the pastbtwomtimes have ensured our not returning. The cocktails used to be great but are now awful tasting. The food has followed suit. A salad which says on the menu contains heirloom tomatoes (and had in the past) had styrofoam ones instead. The rest of the food was the same. The entire dinner was very pricy - as before - but in the past, what we ordered what worth it. On top of that, paying for the valet and waiting 20 minutes for our car for a meal like this was simply not worth it.
Nice hotel bar and restaurant with great service. Great food, and they go the extra mile in giving you a good experience.
Our food was great. Stuffed dates, grilled cheese, fish and chips, calamari, mac and cheese.. ALL great. The service was awful. Our server barely came by, we had to go get him, twice. He was not friendly, not personable, bad. AND he tried to take an extra $40 that we wanted applied to the bill as extra tip. Um, no. Terrible service. May or may not be back because of this.
Worst service that we have had in a very long time. Nice decor and atmosphere but the food took an hour to come. The wine list was horrible also.
Excellent food! Highly recommend the potato chips and blue cheese fondue and the dynamite shrimp appetizer. Only negative is that the restaurant got really packed and the service halfway through our meal got very slow. Besides that, it's ambiance is great and the food is delicious. Good happy hour specials too.
The food and the service here is good, and its convenient if your attending an event at the American Airlines Arena. The noise level is a bit energetic (it is a hotel tavern after all) and the prices were okay for the location. Great for a quick bite before a concert or watching the Heat.
This place has been on my list to try for the past year. I finally had a chance to go. I wish I hadnt. It is basically a hotel bar serving bar food. The place was empty on sat night. First sign its reputation is gone. We had some appetizers and salads. Half the appetizers were fried frozen foods. Calamari was inedible. I think it was frozen too long because it was very tough. It gets 3 stars on opentable but 4 on yelp. I think the yelp reviews must be old. This place needs to close.
The waiter was rude, the food was disappointing. We ordered the Mac and cheese which was the only good thing, and the fried chicken with potato salad which sadly enough we only ate the chicken and left the rest on the plate. It was a waste of $19. The manager could obviously sense we were upset so he offered drinks all around, but the waiter only brought those who had originally ordered drinks, New drinks. Shortly after a small roach was crawling on the wall behind my friend and the owner sent the waiter to remove it and nothing else was said. A two star rating is being generous. Truly devastating experience. I would not return.
Service is very inattentive and uncoordinated, I had multiple servers as well as managers repeat same question, weather I was ready to order or would like to have another cocktail, within short period of time. And it did take long time between server visits to replenish water and clear empty dishes.
My friend ordered polenta with shrimp, shrimp were grossly overcooked and polenta cold inside, while pork shank that I have enjoyed was lukewarm with stale pasta.
My previous experience in that restaurant can not be overlooked either, servers add gratuity (i was with only one friend) and do not tell guests about it while folding your check in half so you only see total, I consider it stealing.
