Fooqs has a nice cozy vibe. It is close to the Arsht so pre-show is possible, as we did, make sure to make a res in advance. Service was perfect. We shared the kebabs and the meatballs. Both were yummy.

Overall , food was very good . It was well condimented and it was served hot. Service was slow and upon departure , staff did not have the courtesy to say good bye or offer thanks . On top of that , they include an 18% tip which in this case I wound not have offered

It’s a star in our neighborhood but it must be careful to not rest on its laurels. It’s too noisy, and the night we went our meal took a bit too long to arrive.

The carbonara was salty but the sprouts were too kill for! The sprouts were just amazing. The speed of service was slow, but we didn’t mind since we had the time. It’s probably best if the host sets the expectation for patrons arriving. Overall the food and service were pleasant!

I just recently ate here for Miami Spice Brunch, and it was phenomenal! The setup/ambiance inside is cute, cozy, and not too loud. The service was friendly and attentive. As for the food, it’s like the front window says at Fooq’s: feel good food. I’m still thinking about what I ate, it was so delicious! And the portions are just right. I would definitely return and recommend this place. Unfortunately I can’t include photos of their wonderful cuisine because they don’t fit, but give this place a try! You won’t be disappointed.

The meatballs and brussels sprouts were delicious, as was the dessert I had (like a chocolate, banana cream.) The kabobs were just ok, and the Persian ice cream with rose water was weird.

We sat outside, which was less noisy, but not very scenic. The inside decor is very pretty.

It is good for Miami spice, but the menu can be expensive.

El lugar estaba algo concurrido pero obtuvimos la mesa rápidamente. Probamos el brunch de Miami Spice. Las entradas estuvieron increíbles en special los sprouts. Los platos fuertes estuvieron bien aunque algo sencillo la carbonara (a mi gusto). Los postres estuvieron deliciosos. El servicio fue excelente.

En general el lugar es cozy, el servicio y la comida es excelente. Volvería a ir

Fooq's is a great "find" that's really unique in Miami. I put "find" in quotes because it's not new and it's not really a secret place. They have been been doing excellent Persian food in a cool spot for years. Don't let the neighborhood put you off. It's not bad and the more you go there the better it's going to get!

What a gem of a restaurant Fooq's is! Kati was our very knowledgeable and attentive server who was quick to offer recommendations from the menu and suitable wine pairing. We were really pleased with the crispy brussel sprouts (a must try!) and the four hearts of shirazi as appetizers. The bucatini was EXCEPTIONAL along with the kebabs. Dessert was the blonde cremeux which was the surprising star of the night! In reading past reviews that were critical of the portion sizes, all at our table left feeling full and like our meal was a true culinary treat. I thought the portion sizes were appropriate. The restaurant is clean and the folks were incredibly friendly and accommodating- right up to the chef waving and thanking us for coming. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy- but up and coming. We will be back again soon!

What a great surprise. I had been wanting to try Fooqs for a few weeks because I saw it on Open Table and finally got the chance to visit. I ordered the fish of the day, which was a pan-seared fillet of fresh red snapper. I am so picky when it comes to fish and it was perfectly cooked and came with beautiful green beans and delicious confit fennel. My husband had the burger with crispy french fries and my son had the daily Kebab platter. The restaurant was pretty empty but atmosphere was simple and cozy. It was a bit pricey for location and setting but will definitely be back.
