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)

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.

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!!!

One of the best meals of 2019! Every dish was unique. A great introduction to Peruvian cuisine modernized but based on traditional seasonings and peppers. The wait staff were all very knowledgable and I have a shopping list of ingredients to find locally.

As always, food, drinks, service exceptional. Best Lomo Saltado on earth, and the scallops in Parmesan foam might be the most decadent dish in Miami.

The place is really nice, the ambience is good, the view at night must be amazing. I went for lunch. The food was okay, there are plenty other Peruvians with amazing food. This place has the view but the taste is average. Wouldn’t go back.

This is a very versatile application restaurant that could very well be a dinner date or business meeting, as well as a family lunch. The service is fantastic and the wine list is well curated for the menu. Highly recommended. The causas, cebiche sampler and pulpo among others are to-die-for.
The bar and cocktail choices are exciting. All with a Peruvian twist. But not overwhelming for those that like me are not big fans of pisco sour.
The only drawback is the music and loudness. It was too loud. Sound barriers on the ceiling would be great. It would make a world of difference. Sadly, it was so loud that we kind-off swallowed our meal out of the restaurant. It reminded me of how loud ceviche 105 is.
If the music aspect is corrected. This please would be perfect.

This is an expensive, gourmet restaurant inside a 5-Star hotel, where you are supposed to be able to talk with friends. Music is NOT for this kind of restaurant. It’s TOO LOUD, more for a club. Very disappointed on the noise level. It would be according with the fine people who is used to go to fine restaurants.

Cuisine was outstanding with a traditional Peruvian flavor coupled with the appropriate portion of food. Seatings was nice, private and quiet. Service was first class and price was reasonable with a Miami spice option.
