What a waste of time and money. NOWHERE does it state this place is being demolished next week. the place was run down - and no one was there to work. Just a waiter and someone in the back preparing the food. It looked like a haunted place. the food was cold and the beans served where out of a can without even being rinsed! again very very sad.

Restaurant overlooking the water. Very nice ambiance. Great for a date, to chat with friends or family gathering. Service is great, at least in my case. Variety of wines and spirits. Food is expensive, I was expecting way more bouquet and flavor. My steak was too spicy. My meat was well done instead of medium well as I asked. Meat quality and variety were below than I expected. Overall food quality is good, not excellent.

He estado ahi 4 veces, esta vez era mi segundo aniversario de Boda, pero no fue tan grato como las otras 3 ocaciones. mi reservación fue cumplida, y la persona que nos recibió y nos dirigió a la mesa fue muy cordial y educada. El Problema fue que la persona que estaba asignada a atender nuestra mesa nos evito y nos dejo esperando por mas de 20 minutos sin que nadie se acercara a atendernos, hasta que una mujer (una de las meseras) se acerco a ella (la mesera que debía atendernos) y le pregunto que si ella nos estaba atendiendo a la que ella (la mesera que debía atendernos) le respondió que ella no nos atendería, que si quería que nos atendiera ella, lo que logre escuchar y entender es que ella pensó y le dijo a la mesera que nos atendió, que nosotros no consumiríamos suficiente y que no dejaríamos buena propina. Eso paso por que nosotros no bebemos bebidas alcohólicas y rehusamos tomar la carta de estas bebidas. Luego la mujer que decidió atendernos (aun y cuando no éramos su mesa) fue muy coordial y educada, y nos atendió muy bien. la comida si tardo mas de 40 minutos en ser llevada a nuestra mesa, pero como era nuestro aniversario estuvimos conversando mientras la comida llegaba. El lugar es muy bonito y es un lugar especial para nosotros, pues ahi mismo nos comprometimos y fue nuestra primera cita, y por eso decidimos celebrar todos nuestros aniversarios ahi, fuera de todo, esperamos que el servicio cambie para bien la próxima vez que estemos ahi, sino, tendremos que elegir otro lugar que nos traten mejor, aun que este lugar era especial para nosotros.

Apparently they are in the process of selling the business. One of the worst dining
experiences. No one greeted us, long wait for anyone to show up at the table, certain
dishes that were ordered never arrived, and a few tables near us got up and left since no one
had approached their table.

Slow, haphazard service with unavailable menu items, including wine. If it wasn’t for the obligatory club dues and subsequent meal credit, I would not eat there again.

I understand the cost associated with resort restaurants but the food here is mediocre at best. Less then top quality meats at extreme prices, even for miami.

Their food was not very good. Service was okay. We went on December 30 at 1:00pm and we were the only ones there. They are going to knock down that building and thT is the mood that it’s in. They are going to build condos.

View is lovely but don’t waste time or $$$
Dining room is lack luster and service pleasant but not attentive
Menu limited and same menu for lunch and dinner
This used to be a fabulous upscale restaurant and resort but obviously owners are doing bare minimum waiting to tear it diwn and add another unneeded high rise condo

The food was quite good but the noise level with the piano was very loud and the food service needs much to be desired but that can be improved in a heart beat. The bar looks great and the view is fabulous. Even though the service was below expectations the gentlemen that weighed on us was very good and made it pleasant. I will return.

This was the best afternoon lunch EVER! The Palmeiras Beach Club at the Grove restaurant is Romantic, Cozy with great signature cocktails and amazing service. We were in Miami for the weekend celebrating a birthday. I went to Opentable since we were leaving The Vizcaya Garden and Museum search for a romantic place to have lunch and The Palmeiras Resturant popped up indicating less than two miles away. We absolutely fell in love with the scenery. For Appetizers we shared the Mediterranean Octopus & for entrees Branzino fish & Roasted chicken breast. 💕💕💕What an Amazing unforgettable lunch sitting with an 🌊 view.. Palmeiras Beach Club this was beyond superb. Sincerely Kimberly🌟🌟🌟🌟

Inexperienced service, subpar food. The view and location is incuestionable, really beautiful. We had the lunch menu featuring gazpacho for the
starter, ravioli as the main and cheesecake for dessert. The starter was relatively good. The main was like eating rubber, fortunately the dessert was ok good.

I went here one Tuesday night to try it out with some of my friends, who are all locals, born and raised in Miami like me. We had never heard of the restaurant before, so we figured we would give it a shot. The setting is incredible. The food is very average and overpriced, but that's like a lot of places in Miami so no big deal. The service and attitude of the staff here is what's horrendous. We were one of the only tables in the restaurant so they told us to sit wherever we would like. Five minutes later the waiter comes out and tells us we need to move "closer to the club house" because he was one of the "only people working and didn't want to walk down by the water" (we're talking 15 feet here). But whatever, we moved happily. He then proceeded to try and push the more expensive dishes on the menu onto us, after we had already ordered and said no thank you. If all of this wasn't enough, he tried to persuade us to leave him additional tip, since the service was already included. STILL being nice, since he was terrible, I left him 5 dollars additional gratuity. Now it gets good. Next day, there's an 8 dollar charge on my credit card as "Gratuity". I call Palmeiras and the sketchy woman in their accounting department, instead of simply saying I'm sorry you were overcharged and refunding me the few dollars, says that my "5" looks like an "8" and that she can see how the waiter was confused. Obviously, we will never go back here and tell all other locals never to go here, which is a real shame because it's a beautiful spot. Hospitality nightmare.

Food was mediocre at best. Got a shrimp salad and the shrimp were undercooked. Dessert was not great either. My mom got a pizza and we were pretty sure it was a frozen pizza that had been heated up. View is nice but service was not amazing.
