Our reservation was for 10pm we were not sat down until right after 10:30. After that the waiter was not very friendly or approachable, just didn’t really seem to want to be there. Other than that the food was delicious.

We went for Miami Spice on a Saturday night. The Miami spice menu is really good. We had chicken, beef, garlic rice, and a side of broccoli and it was amazing! I can’t wit to go back to try one of the tables with the grills.

This is not fine dining or even casual dining. The food was nothing out of the extraordinary and low quality. The noise level is unbearable and you feel you are inside a bar instead of restaurant. Not all the tables have the Korean grill and they are all placed close together and you can touch your fellow dinners and hear all their conversation. The ambience is atrocious loud music making everyone scream to talk to each other giving you that nightclub feeling only you are seating down and paying fine dining prices. The beef in the bulgogi and the stone rice was not up to par. We ordered lobster rolls and they presented us 4 cubes of bread drenched in butter with cheap lobster salad on top; your local publix has better lobster spreads that the lobster rolls offered. The duck buns were over seasoned and you could barely taste the duck. Service was very fast and your food will get to the table almost immediately. They don’t offer the option of choosing the level of doneness in their beef plates so the beef in our stone rice and the bulgogi was over cooked and had a rubbery texture. The chair do not fit under the tables making the distance between you and your fellow dinners even larger and you cannot talk or hear them because if the low music. Don’t waste your time and money coming to this place. BTW we had reservations and our table was not available and we had to wait 30 minutes outside because there was no space at the bar or anywhere else in this crowded space.

We love this place! It is definitely worth a repeat visit, or ten. The rice and french fries are the best ever, but we also go back for the consistently good meats and veggies. And the service is always top-notch. I almost wish they hadn't put their name on the outside (it used to say MARKET) because now more people will know about it, lol! But that's good for them. Can't keep a good thing a secret for long.

First time trying this place, found out about it through the Miami spice website. The outdoor decor is nonexistent but the moment you walk in, you are greeted with beautiful indoor decor and a lovely cozy feeling, I have to say I was very surprised. I went with my girlfriend and we both enjoyed the Miami spice dinner menu and loved everything! The crispy bok choy was so delicious and so was my noodle entré. Service and food A+! I would recommend this place for a date night or a birthday celebration as I saw they had a larger table that seemed lovely to enjoy with more guests.

The food was overpriced and didn't taste as good as the cost. I felt like the service could have been better. Rarely did we have anyone checking in on us to see if we needed anything. I had to call the waiter to move the plates off the table so we could have some space. The waiter was was not knowledgeable on the meals. I had asked her what was in a particular meal and she had no idea. Safe to say I’m not coming back here. Not worth it

Our reservation was for 10pm
We were one of the last tables
The staff was more busy closing down than serving us
It’s not like we had 50% off for eating late and getting half the service.

After a few years of not having been to drunken dragon I decided to return. This time I was very disappointed and not impressed. Our waiter was definitely not enthusiastic, and the food was Mehhh. Can go to Gyu kaku for 1/4 the price and tastier cocktails and food. And then at the price of the “tapas” style dishes being 18-25$ each, they still charged $1.50 for a little cup of extra spicy sauce we requested. They should be embarrassed to charge that, even McDonald’s gives free sauce. Laughable in a sad way

Their website states that they have dragon hour everyday from 5-7. We were there on a Saturday, which would be included in everyday at 6 which is between 5 and 7 and were not given that menu or those prices.

This restaurant was vile! The lobster roll was soaked in butter with no lobster. The grilled octopus was inedible and tasted like burnt cardboard! The worst was the bun that came with a large black hair wrapped around it. When we called the waiter over he apologized, asked what else we’d like to eat (which the answer was NOTHING) and brought us our check! We were surprised our glass of wine was being charged as well as the “butter roll!” We called for the manager who didn’t care & basically said “yes -I know you didn’t like the 2 things. But the rest you’re charged for!” He was rude, unapologetic and truly didn’t care.
This establishment is awful, the food terrible and the manager the worst!
Don’t eat here.

Quality of food didn't amount to the high prices. Service was decent. If you make reservation, you're not guaranteed a table with the stove burners, so make sure you ask when making the reservation. Parking is extremely limited as expected with anything on miami beach. I will give praise to the quality of cocktails. My advice is go somewhere else to get a true KBBQ experience.

Completely unexpected, but what a great experience! The food was delicious (try the D&D rice), great presentation, timely, and the place has a very cool vibe. The service was absolutely impeccable. Our server, Nicole, literally treated us like family and made great recommendations. She's a true rockstar! We brought our own bottle of wine and the corking fee was very reasonable. Will definitely be returning!!!

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The service was friendly and informative about the menu and options. Every item we ordered was delicious. The ambiance was great and not overwhelming and we could hold a conversation. I highly recommend this restaurant. The waiter invited us to the Foxhole which is an interesting speakeasy. LOVED IT!

The service was adequate. Atmosphere was really nice and lively. Overall food quality was not bad but not Outstanding. The overall pricing is Atrocious. In that we Love Korean Food ( wife is half Korean) , the overall food experience was less than memorable. I would not reccomend them to friends from the North who Love the Korean sides and experience. The Kimchee they serve is Not authentic.

Waitress just wanted us to spend money cuz no matter what she’d get 20% or what ever the tip was. Took our order and never came back around. I’m a local and this was my second time there..never again.
