It was simply spectacular! La Mar’s take on Peruvian food is absolutely masterful. The octopus was divine and the lomo saltado was SO GOOD! Make sure you order ceviche! We did the sampler which gave us a variety to chose from. Can’t wait to go back!

The overall experience for this restaurant was okay. The food was amazing. The only downfall was the fact that we had reservations for 10:00pm and we didn’t get a table until 10:45pm. The service wasn’t welcoming or friendly felt rushed the entire time. And on top of it valet was validated and we’re still charge a $16.00 the guy mentioned that included tax. Overall tip is included they should have exceptional service just like their food.

Well we had been here a couple times before but it had been probably a year or two since we hadn’t go back. We didnt have a great experience this time. Starting when we arrive they had a line in order to register with the hostess. It was a bit caotic having everyone around waiting, the hostess seem to be a bit overwhelm with the quantity of people. They didn’t sit us until 20 mins. Once seated, they took forever (around 20 mins) to serves us water as well as for the server to come by at least to say hi (it seemed to be overly crowded for the amount of servers). We had to look around to see if we could see someone that worked there. Finally a woman whom seemed to be a manager or at least more than a server came by to greet us and help us out with our order, she was very kind and helpful. Ten minutes later our server came by asking if we were ready with a entire order, very nonchalant didn’t even excuse herself. The food came by (food quality is great). But overall service wasn’t of what is expected for the value and name of the place. The same lady who helped us at the beginning picked up our left overs.. and our server came to bring us the dessert menu, she didn’t come back until 20’minutes later, we were already upset with the service that we decided not to order and just pay. The check took forever to come as well and when it came we saw they automatically charge the 18% gratuity, we never complaint about this nor does it hurts to pay for it, but this time it felt unfair to us. So we called the same manager that had assisted us and we explained to her very kindly, and she excused herself and told us of course she will bring it back. When she came back she brought us back two glasses of Champagne and told us dessert was on it’s way, she took us to a quieter place. We were very pleased somebody does something about it, this is what good service is. Nevertheless I felt like I was in a regular hotel restaurant and I wouldn’t go back. The servers need very training

We had a super birthday celebration for my wife. The staff was super accommodating. Especially with my sons food allergies. They were able to make adjustments to dishes to keep him safe. Super view and an impromptu fireworks display in the bay made it a very memorable night.

The only problem is that if you are seat outside for the spectacular view and if it rains, water falls between awings and you get wet or have to move inside.my suggedtions is have a electric awing. Service, ambient and food is #1

Awesome setting, the best and friendliest service you will get anywhere in or around Miami. Waitresses Andhini and Jennifer, together with Claudia made our evening unforgettable... as always. Not to mention their manager that didn’t fail to stop by to check if all was in order. Excellent.

From our check-in to the moment we signed the bill the entire experience was excellent. The food was outstanding and very original in both taste and presentation. Our server took his time with us and explained everything answered our questions and bantered with us. We drove from Orlando to have dinner here and will be doing it again soon. Veal Cheeks, veal heart and the fish were delicious. Worth every penny.
