There was a great Persian new years eve dinner (family style) the night we dined at Fooq's. The staff and chefs celebrated the night by describing the meal and reciting poetry. It was a wonderful experience and I hope they repeat it next year and notify their core patrons in advance.

What a neighborhood gem! I hope the restaurant does well. It's so warm, inviting, cozy, bohemian and has great food! Had brunch with my daughter and grandson after picking them up at The Port. Food was great and service was so gracious. It's a casual special kind of West Village NYC Spot in downtown Miami!! Perfect for me. Thank you!!!!!!!

I had the grouper with a warm salad of favs beans, dill, and a fennel confit with a side order of crispy black cherry Persian rice for my main course. Sublime ! My son had he Delmonico steak which was fabulous quality and cooked to perfection. The service was professional and attentive. Run, don’t walk to this place. The other restaurants in Miami feel amateurish after my dining experience at Fooqs. Tip.. don’t miss the crispy Brussels and the charred octopus appetizers!

The restaurant is really nice with a great ambiance, small and cozy. The food is amazing, they brought the plates very fast and with a whole explanation of ingredients and sources. The beer is great too. I think is a little bit expensive but worth it. There are some courses on the menu that are not explained very well and if you are not used to eating that kind of food maybe by the name you will not order that. The bathroom is really cute and they use eco-friendly, non-toxic soap. The neighborhood is not nice at all but you should try it because the flavor of the food is wonderful, also the service is kind and fast.

A regular before Miami Heat games, and a convenieny, easy and brisk walk to the AA Arena, our primary reason for dining at Fooq's is the food quality, the excellent service by friendly and efficient staff, and the casual, if eclectic atmosphere. Sure to return often.

For Yelp users it’s important to know that Fooq’s doesn’t keep Yelp updated and uses Instagram instead. This means the menu you see in Yelp isn’t something you’ll find when you arrive. Having said that, the food is good, I had the burger and my wife had chicken. The Brussel Sprouts with honey are a must! They were incredible.

The restaurant sits on a fairly busy street and if you sit outside be prepared for street noise from cars, emergency vehicles, etc. Service was a bit slow, in fact the couple behind us were comp’d some food/drink as a result.

One last little detail that irritated me. I made reservations using Open Table and specifically stated (when asked) that this was a special occasion, my wife’s 50th birthday. This was never acknowledged at any point. Seems to be a disconnect between Open Table and the restaurant. I would give this restaurant another chance.

We went pre-show at the Arsht. Everything was fine, except the main course arrived 30 after the appetizer. Our server Kat was very apologetic, as was the manager Brian. They comped us an appetizer and a glass of wine to compensate. They also offered dessert, which we didn’t have time for but we appreciated. We were impressed by their response. We enjoy this restaurant it is quite funky in a gentrifying area. In previous pre-show visits we noticed that the kitchen has trouble keeping up.

Value for money is questionable: expensive for what was offered (3 course meal for $65 on valentine’s day) - food is good, but not an unforgettable experience. Place is small (a bit over 30 seats) but food took long to arrive - a bit less than 60min for entree to arrive (if you are not in a rush, than it is ok).
