    This has been a new favorite restaurant, but last night we went there for my birthday and I was really disappointed. I had chosen the restaurant and was embarrassed. We decided to share the seafood platter which took an hour to arrive to the table. Our waiter said the platter included octopus, but we looked for it and finally realized it wasn’t there. Repeatedly we waited for our waiter to return to our table, three times one of us got up to find him. The oysters were dried up and tiny. We asked about the octopus and the waiter agreed it was left off the platter. He said the oysters looked the way they should. At the end of our meal a staff person dumped large coolers of ice into a garden by our stable which startled us. He noticed and belted out “yeah, I know it sounds like someone is peeing, I told a customer last night, I promise I am not peeing”. I was astonished at this and was just glad to finally leave.

    The most divine setting. Brilliant staff training from the minute you walk in the door until the last dishes are cleared from the table. Professional, courteous, gracious, efficient, knowledgeable, helpful. It all really makes a big difference in the total experience. Thank you for wonderful service Agosto and Philip and many thanks also to the charming young ladies at reception. And the grilled snapper was perfectly done. Moist with layers of rich flavor. This is still our favorite place in Miami. Thank you for a beautiful evening all around.

    Very poor service..server asked how the food was and we advised him the steak was extremely chewy and showed him that we all had spit out the meat on our plates, he said that he appreciated the feedback but to our surprise it was still on our bill. Server seemed over worked and rushed the bday surprise for my wife by first making eye contact with our table yet bringing it for a different one..then says it out loud to our table that your is coming in front of the birthday girl and proceeded by sending the desert board without the candles by another server and we sent it back. He then comes back with board and asks the birthday girl “you don’t want it?” At that point I got up and advised him that there was no candles or anything. On top of that 20% gratuity was added to the bill.Very unfortunate for such a nice venue with promising food. Management needs to step in and provide proper customer service for an upscale eatery.

    This place used to be good. But now when you make a restervatuon you ll have to sit at the bar for 45 minutes (why take reservations then?) and a shady bartender messes with the cocktails. The food is fine, but services leaves a lot to desire and nothing is worth the price. The place was great couple years ago. Its a shame the way it went downhill.

    Anthony our server was very nice but he forgot to give us a knife to cut the steak and it took a while. It was 4 of us and he gave us for 3. Also it was a bit cold and the lamp outside wasn’t working due the propane tank that didn’t have anymore gas, Anthony said they didn’t have more even though there were other lamps available that no one was using. I just told him to never mine. I have had better service in other restaurants. We still gave him a 22% tip. Have a Great weekend!

    I was thoroughly impressed with Amara. Service was impeccable. It did not feel like I had just one server, I felt like their whole team was at my service - friendly, genuine and not pretentious in the least bit. I was seated at the edge of the waterfront overlooking the biscayne bay, and could. It have had a more beautiful and peaceful view. Every thing I tasted at this restaurant was magnificent and so flavorful. Highly recommend the Rio martini (recommended as well by my server), the fish dip, fresh catch and the dulce de leche flan. I left that restaurant knowing I have found my new favorite restaurant in Miami.

They are well behaved 5 and 6 year old girls but the waiter was so attentive and even complimented their drawings. The ambiance and view were amazing! Food was fantastic!!! Nothing bad to say at all

    Not knowing what to expect, booked this for a business dinner blindly. What a pleasant surprise. We were at a conference in South Beach where every place is LOUD and this was a beautiful exchange for that hectic environment. On the water, perfectly paced, food was amazing … we stretched the night as long as we could. The atmosphere is fantastic.

    We went on a Monday afternoon around sunset time and it was a really nice time. The restaurant was almost empty, but we had excellent service, the sommelier helped us pick out a wine we really liked, and the sunset/view was spectacular. We tried a lot of the appetizers, the Seafood Parrillada, and the arroz verde and everyone was very satisfied. Food was delicious. My favorite appetizer was the short rib empanadas. Really nice experience overall. Might be a little overpriced, but then again, what isn't in Miami these days? PS: we spent New Years here and the experience was not the best. I left a honest review and they reached out to offer a refund in the form of gift cards. I really appreciated the Amara team taking ownership of the fall outs, and offering to redeem themselves. This truly changed my perception of the restaurant. We were using a portion of that gift card for this experience.

    The menu has changed significantly since we last dined here. The prices are eye-popping for the quality of the food (way beyond the cost of inflation) and there is more emphasis on splashy shared platters like a $150 steak dish, which honestly wasn’t that delicious. We preferred the shared small-plate emphasis, which meant you got to taste lots of different flavors throughout the evening. The setting is still wonderful, and I appreciate that they automatically add 20% tip (protects workers) and participate in a nonprofit program to help food insecure families.
