We loved the food, ambiance and service! We had never had Persian food before so we had a lot of questions for our waitress and she was great with answering them! We ordered the trio of dips (the ricotta duqqa was our FAVORITE), brussels sprouts (delicious and super large serving), the herb stew (perfectly cooked and delicious flavors) and the Persian Sundae for dessert! We left full and happy!

Every bite was more delicious than the next! This restaurant has an incredible variety of flavors and there is something for everyone. We got the Chilean sea bass, the Jeweled Rice, the Koresh Aloo, and the Chocolate Stout cake. Every single dish was devoured. This isn’t an over-crowded restaurant so we were able to actually have a conversation! Wish I lived in town so I could go back!

This restaurant is a little gem in the “old” part of Miami. We drove up and wondered if we were in the right place and were we ever!!! The food was amazing and fresh and felt like it came out of my mother’s kitchen with a modern twist. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the service and food!

Went with a group of 8 for my birthday. Seated in the dining room with another large group and yet it still felt completely intimate and cozy. A very memorable experience. We ate family style and everything was incredible. Brussel sprouts, chicken fesenjan, tahdig rice trio, and dips (ricotta, baba, labneh) were all insanely good. Shared a bottle of Chilean sparkling rosé and finished with a glass of Twenty Rows Cabernet (note that there's no liquor license). Also impressed by the date cake and the excellent service. I'll be returning regularly! Can't recommend enough for a special event.

Food is spectacular ! The staff is very friendly and the service is always good. They could have a greater wine list, or charge less for the corckage fee (at 35 bucks now).
Love the place, will dine there again many more times.

What a fabulous find. We were in Miami to see Elton John and needed a nearby spot for a festive dinner. We found Fooq and we are so glad we did. It is small, intimate, delicious - perfect on every count. The Brussels sprouts are magical. The meatballs were fabulous. The pasta was quite tasty and the swordfish was first rate. You cant go wrong... we can’t wait to go back!!

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.
