Stephanie at the bar was amazing! We went in for a late brunch and just had such a wonderful time! The mussels and croquettes were to die for, the Guava french toast was a bit dry but overall the food was stunning.

The ambiance was great with a good mixed crowd concerning age and style. Definitely will return!

This is definitely a place to try for dinner. Good, solid and creative food, with good service overall. It’s a small and unassuming place; quirky in a good way. Will visit again, maybe for brunch.

Date night was a success. From the scratch made Sangria to the Seafood Croquetas! That was pure dynamite! It was rather cold in the restaurant and we weren’t expecting that but we got over it once the food arrived. Bread was great, blue cheese was awesome to compliment the chicken wings and I could tell it was made in house, loved it. That’s a good blue cheese dressing. If we had to pick one Lowlight of the night it would be the Pork Belly but the highlight was the Croquetas. Absolutely amazing what you did there. Very good. Overall, we enjoyed our time there and we will be there again in the near future for maybe a brunch or just another dinner. We thank you for your time and shout out to Hannibal; he was very informative and made us feel like we’ve already been there. Very welcoming and filled with knowledge! We thank him for his service and send thanks to the kitchen staff
On a job well done. Next time we come; we want Hannibal again!

Wow! Small restaurant with an impressive quality withib its diverse menu. The homey ambiance only strengthens the character, and this establishment is clearly visited by many locals because they know it's a gem.

High praise for the depth of its seafood options (e.g. octopus) and heavier, non-tapas style choices.

Strong, crafted cocktails and good wines solidify this restaurant for a must visit.

Make that reservation now!

Our family of five had dinner at Pinch Kitchen on Sunday evening. From the moment we arrived it was an excellent experience. Our table was set and waiting for us, even though we were fifteen minutes early. We have a couple of picky eaters so we had a number of questions. Our server was patient, knowledgeable, and exactly on target with her recommendations. The family style serving worked perfectly and created a lot of excitement and conversation about trying the dishes. We all hope to return soon.

This has been the best experience I’ve had at a restaurant in a long time. I went for brunch with a group of friends to celebrate one of their birthdays and from the moment we got there the service was wonderful and the food delicious. A shout out to our waiter Hannibal, he was wonderful. Definitely going back and recommending it to others.

By far, best neighborhood spot in the upper east side/Miami Shores area. Food is legit and the staff is passionate about what they do. Pinch is a rare gem in the So FL food scene.

I had never heard of this place before, I found it on Google Maps. I went here based on the location as I needed to meet someone in this area, and the online reviews. All the positive reviews were right on. The food was really very good. A good variety of small plates and some larger ones. Everything we tried was very well prepared and really flavorful. The staff were all super helpful and very friendly. My only criticism would be that it gets very noisy. Even though it was only half full, it seemed like an assualt of very loud conversations constantly bouncing off the walls. I do highly recommend this place and will be back for sure.

I went once before for "brunch" and it was ok, after 2 years I returned for dinner and wow I'm glad I did, everything from the service to the food was amazing, definitely will come back for more, we had, fish, skirt steak and pork belly, all of them perfectly cooked. Can't wait to go back to try more dishes!

My husband and I visited Pinch for a weeknight dinner. It was fabulous, we were so happy we had chosen to go there. Every single thing served to us was a taste treat! From the beet salad with a scrumptious yogurt-zataar sauce, to the guava-glazed pork belly (best I’ve ever had, not greasy at all), to the whole branzino, cooked perfectly with crispy skin. And the accompanying sautéed veggies - really good! Sadly, no room for dessert. The service was impeccable, love how the place is kinda separated into smaller spaces for a more intimate dining experience. We’ll definitely be going back!
