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.
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
Our service and food was good great. Our server Chris went above and beyond. Very professional and knew every detail of our dishes. We had him recommend our dishes and everything was on point.
Great service we loved our waiter Javaris, food is excellent only the acoustics need to be improved can not hear anyone at your table
Food is amazing and the bartenders are very easy on the eyes.
Exceptional service, food and ambiance. A must try in SoBe.
The best Miami has to offer.
Amazing! The food was great, outstanding service, overall- great place for dining!
Incredible use of ingredients!
Amazing venue and food
Excellent experience from The moment you valet your care right through getting your bill. Excellent service and delicious food. Highly recommended and will definitely return
Amazing Sommelier. Very knowledgeable. The food was impeccable. The staff was extremely friendly and professional.
Amazing Culinary Experience. Brought my wife for her birthday and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Very small portions, Unappetizing, distasteful food. Very overpriced.
Nice location for date night. Night club cabaret at the location. The food is asian fusion. Love the pork rice.
A big disappointment after having great expierneces in Pao previously. Service is outstanding, however the food quality was un acceptable.
Amazing! Very attentive, food came out appropriately quickly, and complimentary dessert to celebrate. Loved it! Favourite restaurant in Miami.
Excellent ambiance coupled with terrific service and exquisitely prepared food. Menu selection is limited but what's on the menu is all great.
It was wonderful as always! Delicious food and incredible service! It is one of our favorites in Miami!
Excellent. Highly recommend. Impeccable service, waiters calling you by your name at all times and were very friendly (unlike how they treat you at the jazz lounge). Fried chicken was delicious as well as the rice with pork belly and the dessert with the pear ice cream was nothing like I have ever had before.
