Had an amazing time! Went for a special girls night out, and did the premium course plan and was not disappointed at all! Our waitress was amazing, I believe her name was Christina or Kristin? Not sure but she was fabulous. Will be back for our next trip to Miami!

El Tucán was an amazing place. The atmosphere is very beautiful. As we walked in the decor was very unique. I was sat at the second floor it was a nice view for the entire place. My waitress was very nice but deceiving. We order a tomahawk steak and two side. She mention they have a special with a 1-2 pounds lobster. I said ok add it to my order. Worst decision ever!! The food was delicious and it took a while but worth it. We order two round of drinks as well. I got the bill it was $500+ .. I look at my friend and said wtf did we eat. Little did you know this “Special” was $300 surf and turf. The tomahawk was $160 on the menu alone. I ask the waitress this lobster cost $140???? She like yea that the special. She added her own Gratuity and passed us the card machine. I quickly removed it because it was a 20% service charged added to the bill. She mentioned this was not a tip and it doesn’t go to her., The only question I have for Tucán is .. does the service charge not goes to the waitress?? It seems not true to me ??

Service was top-notch. Food and drinks were great. Entertainment was awesome. A great dining experience. Do not make reservations for early evening before 9 pm, fun really starts after 12 pm.

This was my first Time at this restaurant. This is a great restaurant if you’re looking to have fun in a group setting or on a date. The location was easy to find, you have the choice of valet parking or parking in the lot just steps away from the restaurant. The food was amazing but the prices were a bit high. Our reservation was for two hours which gives you enough time as a couple to order drinks, appetizers, main entrée and dessert. If you’re in a group setting you may want to stay longer for a fee. Overall great experience I will definitely be back

I was kicked out of my table at the 1 hr and 45 min mark. I still had a full drink and my bill was close to $400 and I was planning to spend more. The worst part was, that I went to the bar afterwards just to watch my table empty for the next hour. So what was the point of kicking me out? Just so they BBC could say they follow their 2 hr max time allotted. But for what? To have an empty table for an hr and lose a repeat customer. Doesn’t seem business savvy to me.

Celebrating our anniversary went out to Miami for few days was looking forward visiting el Tucan are server was wonderful great costumer service the server assistance was also wonderful the sommelier did a wonderful job pairing a bottle of sake with dinner. With that said lights were turned on, next to us was a drunk crowd in there early 20s the security comes to us and tells us to get out, my fiancé says why don’t you first tell that crazy crowd next to us, the security tells my fiancé worried about yourself. Get out know
No way to talk to a lady was rude and stands right in front of are table no distancing no 6ft apart was more like inches from are table next to are face we only had a couple of sips left of the bottle of sake to finish about 2oz in a glass. So we where forces to leave waiting out side for an Uber talked to another couple they had the same experience with the same security, we where waiting about 20 minutes for a Uber the young group where still in there, maybe the security guy was having a bad night but he didn’t have to take it on the guest

The decor and look of the place is pretty cool and colorful and we loved it! The cocktails were lovely and the staff at the bar was super friendly. We had a round before heading to the table where a tag team of two people introduced themselves as being in charge of our table/ experience. We ordered a sushi roll, the ceviche and octopus to start. The appetizers were all lovely but the octopus was definitely our favorite, charred on the outside and soft in the inside.. just delicious! We ordered a bottle of white wine- one of the servers decided to pour more than half a glass until we stopped him.. definitely a rookie mistake and unacceptable- this was obviously very upsetting. The bottle of wine was not even cold when brought to the table. For dinner, we ordered the short ribs, which were drowning in sauce, probably our least favorite. The lamb was great as well as the Brussels Sprouts. At time of reservation we were asked if it was a special occasion, which we stated we were celebrating a birthday - we were also asked when getting sat but the restaurant never did anything special so not sure why they bothered asking. We were told we would get a free round of drinks for the mishap with the wine but the check came and nothing was deducted. We just paid and left. Final thought.. for the type of place and what they portray to be, it was a bit of a let down. We still had fun and enjoyed our time but obviously one thing has nothing to do with the other.

I went for my birthday and the entire experience was great. The drinks were tasty and the food was delicious, my fiancé had the pineapple salmon and I had the filet Mignon, both were cooked well with lots of flavor. The performances were great and as it gets later in the night the restaurant turns into a club. Really fun experience for my birthday celebration, will definitely be back!

It was a bit confusing to get seated even though we had reservations. We had to wait 30 minutes and the place was empty so I didn’t understand why it was so difficult to get seated. It’s very loud so if you don’t like eating to the beat of club music, do not go! I didn’t mind but I thought there was a show and there wasn’t, just a girl in a hanging hoop twice during the night and a lady that sang one song.
Even though there was no show we were warned before we got seated that the table had a two hour limit which I thought was weird because there was no show to watch so why would we need to adjust to a time frame? In the end no one else came so we were allowed to stay in the table because honestly the place was empty, that being said the food Was really good and our server was super nice so I would go back if My intentions are to listen to loud music and eat a couple of nice appetizers

Overall I had a great experience. Live and up beat with several shows throughout the night. Unfortunately & fortunately their was a birthday party there where they bought out the entire place, so the staff treated me a little more like I did not matter. But the plus side the party was buying drinks and felt like I was a part of the party plus it made for very good people watching. It also took a very long time in-between courses. However the restaurant did warn us up front the their dining experience is about 2 hours mine was 2.5 hours.

Took forever to get seated- but I didn’t mind waiting at the bar, bartender was very friendly and their wine by the glass selection is good.


Our server, Pablo was incredible! Food took a while to come out but Pablo was gracious about it. I asked him to please bring me dessert first - no questions asked he did. 💯

Haven’t had such a good experience in Miami in a while! ❤️
Entertainment was GREAT!

Shows stopped which were great and they charge a minimum tip of 36%; 18% service charge for the restaurant that according to the waiter is not given to them plus the tip for the waiter, (assuming the minimum of the range of 18%) is 36% which seems high for it to be the minimum.

Demasiado caro! El show es a partir de las 10:30pm y tu reservación en la mesa es para estar solo dos horas, luego te levantan... terminas o empiezas a ver el show de pie en el bar.
