    Came for Sunday lunch to celebrate my birthday with my family and was pleasantly surprised. Ambiance, service and food was excellent. Not sure what those negative reviews are all about. Everyone from the hostess to the busboy were so gracious and attentive. We eat out a lot and I’m not easy to please. Loved the food, drinks and especially the desserts! Will definitely return.

    An explosion of flavors; a vibrant ambiance, and great music collaborated to our perfect romantic dinner overlooking the bay under the stars. If you want to sit close to the water, there is an additional cost involved but completely worth it. 👱🏻‍♀️

    I used to come here all the time, but now ….The menu is terrible ! Food was nothing impressive. Drinks are just ok . Service was just ok (lots of noise from many people working , but not to the point, they kept forgetting bringing drinks to the table) But the view is great I can’t argue . Wish they went back to original menu when everything was mouth watering .

    The service was amazing, our waiter was very attentive and pleasant through the dinner experience. The food traste good but the value is extremely disappointing. We asked for the seafood parrillada which had a cost of $175 and when we received it it had half of a small lobster, two prawns, 6 extremely small oysters a tiny pice of fish and two small octopus tentacles. The whole thing was served on a plate size that is the same as any other dinner plate. It was extremely disappointing and we felt taken advantage of. The arroz verde was great and that was the only thing that was fulfilling. An extremely disappointing experience for the price. I don’t think we will be gin for back, it was an absolute rip off !

    The staff should be more friendlier. Even though with my reservation for four people. I was at the front desk and the young lady look at me and say stand over there while she’s taking other people behind me then I went back to her and ask her did you get our information. She just give me that look and told me I’m working on it. I guess it’s because of Thanksgiving overwhelm but my bill was over $700 so I needed a little respect

    Amara is always a fun place. While the parking can be goofy (the valet would not take my small pickup, sheesh), the location is great. Beautiful view of the bay. We had a very fine bottle of wine, the sommelier came over to discuss, as she had just worked the harvest of that very winery!

    What a shame. Food was AWFUL! I’d compare it to slightly elevated airplane food. This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in Miami but tonight we actually thought they changed the chef because of how bad the food was. We were a table of 6 and we all couldn’t believe that this was the same restaurant we ate at last year. None of us would ever come back. The menu was great before and the food was amazing. Why change something when it’s working? To make matters worse, the service was awful too. Really unfortunate.
