Fantastic. The food is always amazing - the service is fantastic.
Decor is nice and it lives up to the Michael Schwartz level of excellence!
The service was superb. They accommodated anything we asked with grace. He was very knowledgeable about the dishes. The food was great too.
Esperamos 1 hora. Pra recibir mesa
Y dp esperamos otra hora para la comida
It’s gorgeous and the view spectacular. Unfortunately they didn’t staff properly for a Saturday afternoon and the service took a long time! The server was gracious the food was delicious yet we were there for 3.5 hours...
Beautiful restaurant, right on the water with a great view.
Good Evening Suzanne, I am so happy that you came to visit us and enjoyed the experience! I also appreciate the kind review and look forward to welcoming you back again ! Billy
Great location, food was good. I've been there before, that time the food was much better. This time, slightly off.
AMAZING food and a great view
Thank You for joining us ! We love the view too :) See you next time ! Billy
The restaurant did not hold our reservation and we had to wait 40 minutes for a table. The place is nice but food is not something worth recommending and is is highly over priced.
The food and presentation was terrible, worst I had in a very long time!!
Delicious dishes, Great ambience, and outstanding service!
The food is excellent, and the view and setting is sublime. Regardless of temperature we love to eat outdoors. The service is not always perfect though.
Good Evening, We are so thrilled that you came to see us and I appreciate your feedback regarding the service. Service is one of the most important aspects to the overall experience, and something that we are constantly working to improve.

Wonderful views and very good food. Grilled fish is amazing.
Good Evening Lucrecia, We are so thrilled that you came to see us and enjoyed the experience! I am a big fan of the grilled fish as well ... Thank You for taking the time to leave some high ratings, we look forward to welcoming you back ! Billy
Wonderful experience. Food was amazing. Restaurant is beautiful. Service was excellent. Highly recommend this place for special occasions!
The service was terrible, no one came around to take the order or check on us. The food not that good, over price for the quality.
Betters restaurants in Miami for the same price.
I did a reservation for 9:15 and I was waiting about 1 hour to sit - and I‘m pregnant.
The service takes TO LONG.
service was very slow that night . not as usual . offer dessert . but food came little by littler.
Would be 5 stars but valet is awful. It’s worth parking 2-3 blocks away at a meter and walking to avoid valet. Trust me.
Service was a bit slow but given the fact that it was packed is understandable
The restaurant has a beautiful view on the bay. We enjoyed our drinks (wine and cocktails) and the food as well. The cobia was especially good.
I didnt know that the kitchen closed at 3pm and we got there at 3:15 and they still accommodated us an took our order. Thank you.
Food was tasty, service was good, The restaurant is beautiful, their salad portions weren’t so big. Small pieces of delicious grilled tuna,
El lugar es un sueño!!
Great view, great service. Some items were excellent (i.e. Prawns), however some other items were too salty for my taste.
Overall great atmosphere and service.
Everything was excellent
The food is well presented but there is still room for improvement, considering the prices. It is VERY expensive. However, the ambiance and view is spectacular.
Great food, service and a beautiful setting with indoor and outdoor seating.
Great food, nice vibe -great wait staff
My first time at Amara was great but this past weekend i was disappointed with the lunch. The gazpacho was bland and the grouper was slightly raw, as I made my way closer to the thicker part of the cut. Very basic seasoning and somewhat bland.
Overall it was an expensive lunch that could of been better for the price. Typical Miami.
On the positive side, the ambience, venue and service were good. But the food, not so great. The yuca bites were the highlight.
The food was amazing and the ambience great. We sat on the terrace and it was a happening place. Lots of people and lots of fun for a Monday night!!!! My only but, and it is a small but, was that the service was a bit slow responding to some requests. i.e. we needed the table to be leveled and it took about three requests. However, the place is so nice and the food is so good that it really didn´t matter! Thank you for a great dinner
I’ve been coming to Amara for a few months now - for dinner, for resident happy hours, business meetings, and I’ve noticed all the efforts this place has made to improve.
I decided to come by for my anniversary and I’m glad I did; dinner was incredible, every dish was beautifully plated and tasted great.
Fernando our server did good, and Gabriela was very attentive and offered great suggestions!
Keep it up :)
Luis was awesome and provided a wonderful brunch experience.
We have mixed feelings about our dinner at Amara at Paraiso. The place is beautiful in a nice neighborhood. Very lively. But the food is average and the service pushy (the waitress kept recommending the priciest items on the menu). Grouper ceviche was delicious as were the grilled shrimps. But the steak was only ok (awful chimichurri) and cheese puffs very boring. Vegetable dishes not bad.
So we should have definitely stuck to our regular spots for much better food and service at similar price...
We had a truly pleasurable dining experience. They have nice outdoor space, and overall it was a real nice atmosphere I really liked everything we had. The octopus and the flan were the standouts, and we don't usually get that excited about flan. I would definitely go back.
Como si lee espectacular !
From coming into the restaurant to leaving the restaurant, everyone was extremely helpful, knowledge. The food was amazing, our favorite dish for the night was The Arroz Verde.
The only “con” was the wind. It was extremely windy last night and it was a bit annoying, but we managed and enjoyed our date night. Until next time!
The views are breaking and the ever changing menu with the intense flavors are amazing! I saw a tray of Empanadas come out and the guy behind me was like wow!! What are those. And I was like I know how different can they make empanadas. But they were one of the best I’ve ever had in a town filled with Bodga’s on every corner selling them. Also the summer vegetables and home made chorizo was to die. Love the views love the vibe and the food always lives up to it!!
Portions are small. Food is overpriced.
Perfect for Sunday brunch with friends !
