Beautiful decor, As you walk down the steps and see the host stand than walk outside and sat at a table by the water pretty romantic food was outstanding the whole snapper was to die for and my wife really enjoyed the short rib the fluke ceviche delicious and the octopus was great. Service was good but definitely need to be more attentive we set along time before being greeted also drinks took a while and for order to be taken server was extremely knowledgeable and warm and genuine but just took a long time to come over seems like they were understaffed that night or section might’ve been a little too large. Overall great anniversary dinner would definitely return and recommend it to friends
La Mar never disappoints. Great food and phenomenal view next to the water when it’s not raining. A little pricy, but worth the experience.
we found it far too noisy and the interior was a let down as we could not sit outside waterfront as it was raining. I would only go there if I could sit outside as the ambience inside is zero and for the Mandarin Oriental hotel they do need a more upmarket restaurant in line with the hotel. All around the 5 star hotels there are excellent restaurants with great interiors and food so this was a let down
I had not been in this restaurant for a while and went for my anniversary dinner this week. The service was great, the view was fantastic, but the food... not so much.
We ordered a few small plates to share - cebiche carrettillero, octopus, conchitas a la parmesana, nikkei tiradito, and the maiz morado for dessert.
The cebiche was missing flavor, tasted like fish, and the fried calamari tasted like it had been fried a long time ago. The octopus tasted like it had been burnt. The conchitas were ok, yet only 2 of them. The tiradito was not what I was expecting - it was like eating tuna with peanut butter (very thick sauce). The maiz morado tasted ok, but had a very unappetizing appearance.
The food is nothing to rave about and sent me to restroom later that night.
In summary, this is a good place to have a drink with a nice view, but do't waste your money on their food.
Impresionante como siempre. La mejor gastronomía y servicio de Miami. No es barato, pero lo vale!
Tercera vez que vamos.
Para lo carísimo que es, el servicio deja que desear.
El apetito era plátano frito, estaba pasado y blando.
El entrante sin pena ni gloria y el principal el arroz estaba pasado y era como comer gachas.
Los camareros no nos hacían caso.
Era una reunión especial y no fue lo esperado.
Eso si, las vistas de la terraza espectaculares y la decoración interior fantástica
The best experience ever i definetly recommend it for any occasion
Excelent Food! Great ambiance, service and beautiful decor
Food was great, however the service was mediocre. We waited a LONG time to order, to check out, for dessert. I wanted dessert to be a surprise but the waiter announced the surprise before they brought it out 🙄that took a long time a well
Food was ok not great. Service was a bit overbearing. Prices were high. We had the tasting menu
Amazing dinner! every single dish was outstanding! service from the hostess to the bartender, waiters, and chef was phenomenal! thank you
Great! Food was exceptional and great service.
Fantastic experience. Paula our server was wonderful and so helpful in choosing authentic Peruvian specialties from starters to main. Can’t wait to return.
As always very good food and service
Terrible customer service. Dined for Miami Spice and was refused take-out containers for our leftovers! Rude waiter/bus staff. Spoke with the manager who apologized, but it was unacceptable!
Comida y atención excelente
La señorita Claudia (asistente de meseros) nos brindó una atención excepcional! Mis felicitaciones para ella y el chef!
Muy bueno . Nos trajeron una pequeña torta por el cumpleaños
Excellent food, atmosphere and views of Downtown Miami
Amazing experience. Great Service
Delightful on the water as the sun set behind the towers of Brickell. Food was outstanding, the service wonderful and friendly. One of my favorite places to dine.
A fantastic meal!! Great .presentation and inctedible flavors .
Hi , we where there for a birthday party.food was delicious but the service was very slow
Beautifully decorated place in the water with incredible food. The scallops on the dry ice looked like art and the taste was incredible. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. I’ll definitely be trying his other restaurant in Chicago soon.
Unimpressed. Food and service were not anything memorable. The cebiche appetizer was soggy and not fresh. OK experience, but I wouldn’t repeat.
Great food... just what I expected from Gaston Acurio
Great food and ambience at the MO Miami, the only thing is if you are having lunch outside and it is hot and humid eat inside.
Almorzamos el menú del Miami Spice y superó nuestra expectativas!
The dinner menu of “Miami temptations” Was only ok. I would say poor in comparison with the other dishes that we ordered (we really liked the conchitas a la parmesana, the octopus and the salmon)
Fantastic service, the entrees were delectable, I even received a surprise birthday cake! The views are breathtaking! Do your yourselves a favor and give this restaurant a-go, you will not be disappointed!
Fantastic, little noisy but this is my favorite
A steady level of service and food quality that is very rare! The menu offers a range of meat and fish choices . That lets you enjoy the flavors of Peru. Of special note the Sunday Brunch is exceptional and worth a trip to enjoy.
Too loud! And be aware that they charge 9% taxes vs. 7% for most of the restaurants in Miami.
This place is fantastic! I went for my anniversary and it was definitely a perfect choice for me. Great food, great service. The view is beautiful!
The ambiance and the service was good. The special fried rice was delicious. The ceviche was bland and too small to share, the conch dish was really blah - no real flavor, we left most of it. BYW, we love conch. The conchitas a la Parmesana were good. Overall the food was a bit underwhelming. Maybe it was a bad night.
Sadly the problem with La Mar is poor management and organization of the reservations. I specifically indicated that I wanted outside sitting and that this was my niece’s birthday just to hit hey the same “we cannot sit you outside and get a second class inside sitting! My nephew look very young and the manager made the point to be sure he could not consume wine just because he was not carrying a picture ID for not being from the country. He did not have the curtesy to talk to us because he could not be seated where we requested but enough to spoil the mood of the 26 year old man visiting Miami. This is for sure my very last visit to La Mar!
Food and service was very good. The view is beautiful but the music was very loud and annoying. Initially were supposed to sit inside but we could not even hear ourselves speak let alone hear the waitress. We requested to move outside which was just as bad. Definitely not dinner music. It felt like we walked into a dance club and the vibe was like being at a late club bar. We were celebrating our Anniversary and they did not even acknowledge it. We were at 4 different restaurants during our stay there and all of them made our meal extra special because of our Anniversary. Extra drinks, deserts, etc. Our Waiter never mentioned it even after we told him why we were there and we were ready to leave. We asked about the corkage fee because we had a nice bottle of wine back at the room that we wanted to drink but were told that the corkage fee would be $100 and honestly they were indifferent about it. Almost to the point that made us feel like it was not something that they wanted to do. I must add that we tried 6 different dishes including the main course that we split because we wanted to try as much on the menu that we could and it was all delish. All came out on a timely manner and the presentation was awesome.
We would definitely return but only if something is done about the music. When we eat dinner we like to be able to sit back and relax!!!
Service was not what I expected for a Mandarin Oriental.
Quise usar Miami Spice y no aplica los viernes y sábado. Mucha letra chica por parte de La Mar. Una pena.
