Everything was very good except that the noise level was so loud that we could not hear the other 2 couples at our table. They might need to sound control the walls in the room that we were in. I think the main room already has that.

We had been here on many occasions in the past & decided to return due only to Spice. Parking was extremely difficult due to construction..only valet (at an added $$) was available ...we finally found a space many blocks away. That said, there was a lively atmosphere & great ambiance. The menu was good with diverse choices. The food is good as well. However, the service was lacking. There was one poor waiter for the entire room and he wasn't even present most of the time. There was a very long wait between courses, between glasses of wine and even between the refill of the water glass. In summary, the Spice Menu is good, food is delicious but there is a lack of parking and inattentive service which is difficult to justify a return trip.

Food was great, service was ok considering how packed the place was.
Tables are very crowded, basically you are on top of each other and noise level was outrageously loud, you could not even hear/speak to the person sitting in front of you in the table.

Love everything about this restaurant. Does not disappoint. I've dined here often and the food has always
been delicious and well prepared. Today I came for the miami spice and I had the calamari , and the sauce was sweat and sour and calamari was very tender. The entree was stir fried chicken with champagne risotto, I cleaned that plate too. The service was very good. The decor and atmosphere was very cozy , we had a very relaxing experience .
I highly recommend this restaurant.

Our first time there and it totally exceeded our expectations. The food was outstanding. It was tasty,light on the sauces, great in the combinations and ampl portions.
We had the meatball/polenta appetizer ( yummy). Also the tuna which was crunchy and very tasty. Main dishes included the pear fig ravioli, the chicken Parmesan, the shrimp risotto and Maddy’s chicken. Each was better than the other. A great mixture of flavors. The champagne risotto was delicious. The sauce and filling in Maddy’s chickenwas unexpected an amazing explosion of flavor. Desserts were very good. The coconut flan hit the spot as well as the triple chocolate mousse

Service was outstanding. Our busboy was terrific—friendly and right on top of his game.

Please get a reservation, and even a little bit of waiting at this hidden gem because the food and service are worth it!

After hearing good things from a trusted foodie friend I made the trip before a night out in the Gables / Grove area. I went with their Miami Spice menu, and didn't notice any problems. Portion size was price appropriate and very flavorful.

Since it was a full house the owner /manager comped me some fluffy warm bread and tart tomatoes while I waited for my sharp buffalo meatball and creamy polenta appetizer. Dressed up with some marinara, it was a tasty lead in to my chicken parm (very sauce and rich). Unlike Italian chain restaurants, the sides were a creamy risotto and crisp veggies. A cool and fluffy nutella pannacotta closed out my eats and I was ready for a night out elsewhere.

Though the facade is off Leajeune, the entrance has a nice speakeasyish vibe on the block behind (btw my bartender was nice enough to remind me to enter the back entrance as my address for UberLyft.) The manager was involved in service, going around to each of the guests. Cool chardonnay kept me thru dinner, and a delicious sweet port closed my night out. For those of us dining solo, there are a couple TVs by the bar (and you might run into a few other single solo diners too ;) Highly recommended for a Gables night out!

The food was rushed between appetizer and entree--should have been a little slower and not so rushed.
Otherwise excellent. Clear that the restaurant wanted to get the next set of guests to our table...

This restaurant has served delicious meals since 1999 and they're consistent with their exceptional service and attention to details. The restaurant is owned and operated by the same original owners, Marcelo and Ernie. They're always there to make sure everyone is completely satisfied with their dining experience.

This restaurant has all the proper tools to be a success as it is. The owner greets you and gives you that good feeling that you are welcomed. The food is delicious and served hot and all within a very good time frame. Just the atmosphere over all is very good. It's Pricey but the service and food and location back it up...

Went to experience Miami Spice for lunch. Was never greeted at the door. I noticed that the gentleman who walked another family in after us also was apologizing that he did not see them at the door. The restaurant was not busy and service was very slow. Food was just OK. Bread it was very dense. Will probably not go back.
