Hostesses were a bit unfriendly. Server was ok. Glass for the water had lipstick stain! Food was excellent.

Service was subpar for a restaurant of this caliber. It was made worse by the waiter asking if we wanted our change back from our payment despite the bill already being inclusive of 18% gratuity, far more than what he deserved as a result of his poor quality of service.

La magnifique terrasse, le service attentionné et la grande qualité des plats sont les atouts ce restaurant. Le seul bémol est qu'il fait tellement froid à l'intérieur du restaurant qu'il est impossible d'y manger. Pourquoi certains restaurants en Floride s'imaginent que tous leurs clients aiment être frigorifiés lorsqu'ils vont à leur établissement ? Faite plaisir à votre clientèle et arrêté de les faire grelotter.

We were celebrating birthday of our friend. He and his wife were in Gaston's restaurant in Peru. They enjoyed it there. Our server was friendly, attentive, knowledgeable about the m. Foods were great and Peruvian drinks were wonderful. I enjoyed it verymuch.

The views are spectacular, but the food and the service were a bad experience. Our waiter only came to our table like two times, and when I asked for the drink menu he told me "sure", but never came back with it so I let it slide. Then he didnt come back, at all... he would always skip our table and be gone for a long time. When we were ready to leave, we waited for over 20 minutes and he never came, so we had to ask another person that worked there to give us the check. You would expect that food would be delicious for the outrageous high price you're paying, but no. The food was terrible, the cebichero I ordered was supposed to be ceviche, jalea and causa. The ceviche literally tasted like fish soaked in water with only three drops of lime juice (very dry), the causa was fair, and the jalea was just fried seafood with no flavor. My fiance ordered chaufa, and it was missing a lot of flavor also. Overall, it was a horrible experience, it was supposed to be a nice romantic dinner but instead we left feeling disappointed. We may only return for the drinks in the outdoor bar area and for the views.

Wonderful food. Excellent taste on the seafood. We were encouraged to share and I’m glad we did; portions are generous. This isn’t a cheap place but the quality and killer service made it very memorable and worthwhile.

La Mar has a beautiful view with outstanding staff and delicious food! Our waitress was awesome too! We had 5 dishes and each one was flavorful and had their own elegance to it. This restaurant is definitely a must try. And this place is one of my FAVORITE restaurants by far. You will not be disappointed.

Very accommodating and friendly staff. Food was fast scallops were delicious. Portions were large enough. The dishes are good maybe i'm not a fan of peruvian overall. We had a great time dinned inside this time. Last time was outside and that was great as well.

Even tho I had a reservation, I was kept waiting for extensive time. After our party was seated, we waited almost half an hour for the server to arrive and another half an hour for the drink to arrive. Food was quick and good but wish the overall experience was improved by the front of the house staff.

We were looking forward to eating at La Mar during our visit to Miami. We were seriously let down by the food and the service by the waiter was supbar. Although the bussers were great. We were very much looking forward to the ceviche sampler and were shocked to find the fish used in the ceviche to be smelly and not fresh at all. The grilled seafood platter was a good value and tasted good but wasn't extraordinary. The desserts were the best part of the meal. We received a free chocolate raspberry mousse cake as a anniversary gift and ordered the chocolate journey which was delicious but we didn't know what we were eating. We are accustomed to having explanations of our food and we didn't receive any unless we as
