Pao by Paul Qui – Faena Hotel Miami Beach
Pao’s beverage program will include an extensive list of wines from old and new world regions, an international liquor selection, innovative cocktails from an impressive team of mixologists and playful non-alcoholic libations.
simply great! I will come here over and over again. The service, the food, the ambience, everything is exceptional. Congrats to them!
My boyfriend and I went to Pao for dinner and were blown away. Exceptional food, exceptional scene, exceptional service. Great for date night or a special occasion.
Service was amazing!!!
Beautiful space. Our server Jed was on point. Cocktails, wine recommendation, food and pace was top notch. Obviously expensive but the portions were more generous then I imagined them to be. Unicorn, scallops and fried chicken were stand out dishes. The unicorn being a must have, perfect dish. Would return, I’m a sucker for details and Pao hit them all
Consistently excellent food, drink and service in a most fabulous dining room in a posh hotel. A small plate of beef tongue was exceptionally memorable. So many exotic choices. We’d like to sample every one!
One of the best restaurnts I have dined in on 3 continents.
Overall fantastic. Food quality and service has been consistently top notch since the first time I went nearly two years ago. As good as any Michelin starred restaurant I’ve been to.
Gorgeous restaurant ! Great ambiance. Food was outstanding and service even better. Great bar and crafted cocktails. Super recommended !
Has gone downhill since the last time I went
I could eat here every day! The Wagu beef was the best I’ve ever had.
Wonderful food and presentation, great cocktails along with great service from Jed made for an enjoyable night.
Worst duck I have e we eaten in my life
Just ok. Food was fine. Service ok. Nothing memorable.
Flavors are new and unusual yet still delicious. They don't sacrifice flavor in the name of innovation. Service is stellar, efficient and friendly.
Wonderful food, lovely hotel. We were FREEZING in the restaraunt the entire dinner though.
Excellent restaurant in a classy unique place-hotel. Bar drinks a treat from Vladimir, a great bartender. Love the horse bronze glass.
Food is amazing with excellent presentation, perfectly cooked, and full variety of flavors. The Miyazaki carpaccio, the Duck, the Mishima Reserve steaks, and the Toro Tuna were all Perfection. Desserts to die for.
Amazing wine list for the connoisseur, and even a better service from the Sommelier who attended all of our request, even bringing us a bottle from another restaurant.
I think the best restautrant by far in MIAMI.
Thanks for a perfect evening.

Great variety and uniqueness of food choices. Waiter was outstanding. Desserts were also unique and delicious.
I don’t ever write reviews, but my husband and I had such a fantastic night at Pao that I must share. We came for our anniversary and the whole staff were so lovely and welcoming — they truly made it a special night. Our waiter, in particular, was friendly, informed, and attentive. The drinks were great and the food was amazing. The dishes with fried chicken (small plate and large rice), in particular, were delicious. What a great evening!
Great experience and not so expensive compared to other restaurants at same level in Miami. You need to like Asian/fusion food
Our server was excellent. I believe his name was Chris We venue much enjoyed our whole experience. We would defiantly go back again
Too noisy is the only thing, and charging for the valet after that level of dinner makes no sense
Very chic, great service, food very inventive, but would appreciate a few more items on the menu to round out selections. Service - hostess, server & wait staff - all, very professional - attentive & accommodating. Food quality & presentation, impressive. Design of interior & exterior spaces creative & inspiring. The doorman greeting guests at the entry level was very knowledgeable & engaging! Overall, it is a lovely experience! Just wish staff admitting guests to the Living Room Bar (1st floor) had been more gracious & acccommodating!
Service was superb! Food was delicious except not a lot of options for vegetarians
Alway an amazing experience!
Everything was amazing, from start to finish
Amazing from start to finish
Restaurant was empty. Fire alarm started and we were told it happens very often due to the kitchen in the Argentinean Steakhouse on site. Food doesn’t worth the price. Service was good.
Simply loved it! My wife and I went on a date there and we had a great time. The place was beautiful, the service was excellent and the food was amazing! It’s one of my favorite places in Miami!
Beautiful space and outstanding service. The menu is quite limited, and the prices are quite expensive. The food quality and taste was good to excellent, but not truly amazing, and some portions were very small. Los Fuegos in the same hotel, is definitely the better restaurant.
Kind of nervous that it was going to be a hotel guest, tourist trap place. Nothing of the sort. While there may have indeed been tourists, with good taste, it was an exquisite dining experience. Excellent food and drinks combined with great service from our server Hicham made for a memorable experience. Worth a visit and the money.
Delicious, innovative menu. Fabulous service and beautiful atmosphere, without being stuffy. All around amazing. Sebastian was our server and he was fantastic.
I went to Pao with my spouse and another couple for a fun night out, and the experience exceeded our expectations. It’s rare that I have an experience in which food, ambiance and service are all exceptional, but this was one.
The food is spectacular - a very unique dishes with flavors you won’t find anywhere else. The decor is also one-of-a-kind.
We were particularly impressed with the top-notch service. We had been stuck in traffic, so we called ahead expecting Pao to treat us like other Miami Beach restaurants: that we should beg them to let us in. But they were understanding and accommodated is as if we had been punctual. And then the service just got better - informative, friendly servers who were always available when needed but not intrusive.
They place is pretty pricey, but it is a great experience.
Always excellent! Great food and excellent wine list!
This is a fabulous restaurant. Interesting and wonderful food; warm and helpful service; and a fun room.
Best service I’ve had in a long time. Generous portions. Over all WONDERFUL experience..
Excellent food and service
