We were at the restaurant during spring break. There were many scantily clad groups of girls that were dining on the outside patio as well as inside the restaurant. When I say scantily clad I mean string bikini tops, thongs and sheer pull on pants. Beach attire. What I’d like to know is where the line is drawn between acceptable attire & indecent exposure. These girls were sitting with their bare bottoms on the chairs in the restaurant. Nasty. Not real appealing while you’re eating.

Tacos were just OK. Very underwhelming. And not worth trying to find parking for just ok tacos. And definitely NOT worth the price

Very slow service- were sitting for 10 minutes before anyone came over. After we ordered everything, there was another long delay and we actually got our guacamole 5 minutes before we got our drinks. I know it is spring break but the service was unusually slow. Had to ask for water refill twice and also had to ask for knives and clean plates. Fajitas were good and enough for 2. Didn’t have the time or patience to wait for dessert tonight, but we weren’t even asked if we wanted any. Won’t go back until after spring break.

Naked Taco is a really great place for a fun dinner! We came here with a party of 7 while on a Bachelorette Party in Miami and requested outdoor seating, which was amazing! Everyone loved their food and the drinks were amazing as well. The waiter even brought us a special round of shots on the house to celebrate the bride! We had an unexpected guest come and sit down at our table, which was uncomfortable, but handled simply when I told the waiter not to let him order as he was not a part of our group (also not to be unexpected during spring break week in South Beach). The service was prompt and our waiter was excellent. The atmosphere is great with fun touches specific to the restaurant.

Loved it! Miami Beach has a reputation for bad service, which we got at a lot of places - but not here! The bartender was very friendly and attentive, made great cocktails and good menu recommendations. I tried the gordo (gordita?) taco which is a deep fried hard shell wrapped in cheese but it was a little cold and hard, would not recommend. The restaurant was also out of Key Lime Pie, which was a bummer. Other than these few snafus, everything was great!

While the ambiance was fun, the food was really lacking any freshness. Also, our food came out before our drinks. You could tell the tacos were just sitting back there pre made waiting for people to order.

Disappointing from start to finish. As we arrived and were half greeted, the host was interrupted by a colleague, so we stood there ignored for a few minutes whilst they dealt with something else. Then the host took us to an outside table and had to be told we’d booked inside. Another short wait before we were taken to an inside area to a table that was not setup, next to the atm. We asked to be moved to a marginally less unappealing table. Then a very pleasant make server arrived to greet us, got us some water and brought menus. Then a female server came back a little later to take our orders. Drinks arrived, fine. Food arrived but went to the next table but our fellow diners diverted it. Food was ok, if a bit cold. Female server reappeared to take second drinks order at which point my partner asked where the complimentary shots were and got a mumbled apology. After we’d finished, it took a while to catch anyone’s attention to clear the table. Then a further delay in getting the check. When asked if everything had been ok, my partner said “no, service was poor”. Still, we got charged for service, we paid up and left the place grumbling about the continuous small failings in our dining experience.

The tacos were disappointing. Arrived with soggy shells and the carne taco had little flavor in the beef. I was surprised given the generally high ratings but I would choose to go elsewhere

The manager was A+. However,it took 15 minutes before a server came to our table. We almost walked out as the restaurant was empty and we counted at least 4 servers. Regardless,the manager whipped them into shape. The food is decent enough although we found the margarita to be disgusting. It was undrinkable. This restaurant unfortunately misses the mark so much I say "avoid" this place. Poor service, inauthentic average Mexican food and extremely high prices. Fail!
