The cost relative to the quality of the food and it's presentation was extremely poor. La Mar is promoted as a high end restaurant, however it cannot be considered in that category, although charging premium prices.

Dishes are quite small and expensive. It pretends to be luxury, but indeed looks like a usual cafe and it can’t compare with any of restaurants in Downtown or South Beach.

Everyone's main course arrived at different intervals, so we had to sit while our meal got cold to wait for other guest food to arrive. Waiting several times for water refills and or Drinks. You probably could've sold more drinks if they came out quicker. Also the time in between our appetizers and our main courses was very long, so we had nothing to eat and or snack on for quite a while.

Reserve mesa para las 10, cuando llegue no estaba pronta. Espere parado durante 10 minutos.
Nos tardaron en atender. Demoro mucho traer la comida y sobretodo la bebida que tuve q suspender porque ya había terminado de cenar.
Platos excelentes servicio pésimo.

A great experience and the best service.
Almost everything we had, was delicious.
But the kindness and thoughtfulness of the manager (Javier) and the smile and service of our waitress (Andini), made our experience unforgettable.
Congratulations.
Totally recommendable!

We chose to do the Chef’s tasting and leave the choices to them. We had 8 courses and everyone of us loved every dish. Our waiter was incredible, explaining each course, not only what it was but how it was prepared and the concept behind it. We also took our waiter’s recommendation on wine and drinks and everything paired beautifully. It was one of the best meals we’ve ever had!

Have been here several times before but found our current brunch experience to be. Lacking. Food choices were not as exciting or diversified as in prior visits. The choice of the lomo as the main dish was disappointing. All potatoes and 3 small pieces of meat. Not cool. The mimosas are all juice and no champagne. For the price you pay for brunch, i expect more.

Great restaurant inside a great hotel. The food was delicious. I had a “Ceviche Sampler” and “Conchitas a la Parmesana”. The main course was the Chaufa Aeropuerto”. The traditional “Pisco Sour” and “Piscojito” are excellent drinks. For dessert “Los Picarones”. After dinner we spent the night at the bar by the lobby with live music by 3 great cuban musicians.

This restaurant does not know how to manage reservations. EVERY time we have been here, we have been made to wait a considerable period of time after our reservation time for our table. And then they are rude about it. Sad, because the lousy service really lets down an otherwise good restaurant.

Disappointed in the staff’s handling of my gluten intolerance. I informed the staff that I was gluten-free when I made my Open Table reservation and again when I ordered my food. The server brought out the plantains and sauce, but failed to inform me that crackers (made with gluten) are used to thicken the sauce. Another server informed me AFTER my husband and I had ate all the plantains and sauce.

Delicious food, unique fusion of Asian and Peruvian, delightful wait staff, and lovely waterside spot.
Noise didn’t bother me, but it did my husband.

We were there on a June Monday night. Busy but not slammed. Reservations might be a good idea. We had them.

We love to come to Miami from Orlando just to have brunch at La Mar with friends and family.
This past Sunday we were surprisingly disappointed with the quality of the food. Most of the hot appetizers were cold and lacked flavor.
The drinks were also weak and watered down.
It is an expensive brunch so we always have high expectations.
As a peruvian- proud to be represented by La Mar - I hope you take my feedback as a positive to make quick improvements.

Such an experience from start to end, the site is the heart of the most exclusive area in Brickel and inside an icon hotel such as The Mandarin Hotel so the rest comes along, the view,the amazing staff,the ambiance and the incredible festival of flavors within its menu... i dont know if it could ever get better than this but i could certainly write a book about this my amazing experience in that place.
