Terrible customer service. We had a reservation at 4:45 for dinner on Christmas. There was 7 of us. We arrived and they made us wait for our table for 10 minutes because a group of six without a reservation entered before us. By the time we were seated it was 5pm. At which point at 5:01 a waiter came over and told us they are closing and if we wanted to eat there we had to order immediately. The waiter said the owner didn’t want to give us any extra time. I don’t know why they didn’t give us any extra time considering they made us wait but having to order everything for a table of 7 on the spot is not doable. This kind of treatment was really unbelievable especially because no one, not once told us that they were closing. We had no idea! They called us to confirm and didn’t notify us. If we had know we would have come at a different time. But now I don’t think we’ll be coming back.

Really enjoyed our dinner - we were able to catch some Happy Hour specials - the Old Fashioned were perfectly made and loved the cloves inside the orange peel. The fries that came with the burgers were perfectly crunchy and the buns were amazing. Overall, a hidden gem, and will definitely return!

Second time we went to Pinch and only had appetizers because they are all amazing. By the name they might look nothing especial but they all have a twist that make them unique of Pinch.

I love the food here. The burgers are really good and the appetizers also, specially the spicy brussel sprouts. Good selection of beers too. A neighborhood gem. I would say prices are a little bit high.

I love Pinch! It really never disappoints! I went there for brunch and this time I got to try their Unlimited Mimosas deal for $25 and it was great! Especially the fact that they give you a glass of mimosa and a whole pitcher so you don’t have to rush or be asking the server to refill. We started with the Pinch Salad which is the best salad ever!! And then the impossible burger and the pinch burger.
For dessert, we have the chocolate cake and it was delicious!

Had a wonderful time. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive and helped me make choices. I found my ceviche with the corvina really well textured with the right amount of piquancy. My Tagliatelle Bolognese very satisfying. Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Miami.

An innovative menu with enough choices to please anyone. The Gambas al Ajillo (garlic shrimp) is a must have. I can't list everything that's so tasty - because it all is.
Thanks to Emmanuel for excellent, attentive service.

I recommend the barbecue pork and the croquetas are also pretty good. There is a nice ambiance and good service. Although, surprised with the price of two cortaditos, almost $10, overpriced in my opinion.

I'm in love with Pinch! The place and style of the restaurant is beautiful, it's literally like a little house with succulents by the windows and different chairs and tables. We were 2 people and we started with the Pinch salad, it was delicious and a really good amount. The dressing was citrus based and definitely they used some Dijon mustard because I could see the little seeds and it was perfect! Since we went around 12.30pm, we ordered some scrambled eggs with potatoes and an Impossible vegan burger. The eggs were fresh and the potatoes were baked with a delicious seasoning. The burger was delicious, it came with a pretzel bun, an avocado based sauce and some shoestring potatoes paired with French fries. We also ordered some drinks, and they were so good we had to go for three rounds. We had some classic mojitos and the basil lemonade which was made with vodka, both of them were refreshing. For the desert, we picked the tres leches panna cotta and it was the right amount of sugar. The panna cotta came with a vanilla ice cream scoop and some graham cookie crumbles around it. So overall, the place was delicious and I can't wait to come back and try some other dishes and drinks!

Reservations for Sunday brunch are a must. We arrived at 2pm and the place was packed, inside was very loud, outdoors at the covered patio it was quiet but hot, fans are not enough to be breezy. We ordered focaccia, guacamole & tortillas, egg Benedict’s and tagliatelle bolognesa. Server was super nice and food was well done. Size was good as well. Parking at the back was packed but we waited a few minutes until someone left premises.

Great service and food at Pinch. We tried the vegetable soup (butternut squash) that was AMAZING. This was probably my favorite thing but this soup is my usual go to and it was exquisite here. We also had the gambas al ajillo that were cooked excellently and a full round of pincho burgers for everyone at the table. Burgers were packed with flavors and VERY filling. It’s a huge burger so order if you are famished! Will be back again to try their french toast. I had this silly thought that we could order it for dessert to share BUT…if you ever make it to Pinch and get to see the French toast, you’ll understand why my great idea was not possible! The French toast is certainly not your typical serving.
