Outside seating was not available with our late reservation, but we were seated inside right away. The tacos were delicious and the rice/beans as well. The tacos were stuffed portions and two was satisfying. Overall I felt it was quite pricey: Chips and salsa for $10; Two tacos for $14; and sides an additional $5. We chalked it up to the cost of vacation in Miami!

This is a good place for big groups- plenty of seating indoor and outdoors. The food was good- we had a variety of dishes including the queso fundido, chilled 5 layer dip, tacos, and portobello mushroom fajitas. Everyone enjoyed their food. The prices listed for the tacos are per taco (aside from the lobster which comes w 2). At $7 or more per taco they are rather pricey and not particularly special. Ask for the chili salt rim with your margaritas- yum!

Fabulous food - great service. Food was £30/head (including drinks) but there was way too much! If we had known we would have shared a few plates! An amazing evening though, great atmosphere and the evening was enjoyed by all!

I was in Miami for work meetings, and my colleagues and I were looking for a fun place with great food and drinks. Naked Taco was perfect. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather, while having amazing Wholly Guac and the Tuna Tacos. Everyone ordered their own Tacos or Fajitas for the main course and dessert (Churros) was amazing as well. The environment was enjoyable, with festive people having a good time and a laid back vibe. I left town but others went back the very next night for dinner again.

Have been here many times before and it was usually good, but this time was the worst. After getting seated and having water, we waited 5 minutes before a server came to our table. He took our full order and after that, trouble began. Before receiving our drinks, they brought out the guacamole. Several minutes later, the drinks arrived, but my monitors was not what I ordered and my wife got a Diet Coke in a bottle with a straw - no glass and no ice. As they usually give you free shots of something when you sit down, I asked our server why we didn’t get them and he said he would bring them over (but I had to ask him). After addressing that issue, we had the next problem - the entree was brought to the table before we finished the appetizer. There was barely any room on the table. I complained to both the server and manager, neither of whom apologized or did anything but shrug their shoulders. Within a period of 20 minutes we were served an appetizer, drinks, and an entree - almost like a fast food restaurant. Although the food was good, the service and coordination of the courses was atrocious with no apology. Hopefully they will get their act together again because they had no excuse last night - it wasn’t that busy.

Food is just okay. They do have a great fresh salsa with chunky tomatoes but that was the highlight. It’s Miami so food was priced for the area.
Don’t park in a garage it’s $40 even if you are there for 2 hours.
I would not go back.

It was overpriced for the quality of the food and drinks. The service was subpar, which was annoying since gratuity was automatically included.

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.

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!
