The little food no good the price no good
Even on this not so happy times, Amara at Paraiso keeps the good vibes, ambiance and food.
Very good ambiance and delicious food. It's pretty pricey though.
Completely compliant with covid-19 restrictions. Great food and drinks.
We made a reservation on a Sunday evening. We were shown to our table. We sat outside for over 30 minutes. No one came to our table. All the tables around us were getting their orders taken. So we left very disappointed. We’ve been a few times before and absolutely love it. The food service and ambiance have always been amazing. I’m hoping it was just a bad night.
Great brunch. Amazing food.
Amazing sitting outside. Food really good, but plates small for sharing.
Highly recommend the octopus. Watermelon and Peach salad.
first time our since this whole Covit started - I felt safe and happy- Michael Schwartz restaurant’s are all great but this one offers enough social distancing to make you feel confident.
Great experience. Very nice outdoor seating. Tables apart for the virus.
The service was very lacking. The food was ok.
Great place!!! Super nice view. The staff is very professional.
Amazing outdoor seating with view of the water. Staff is very attentive, food is delicious and innovative. Great neighborhood gem, love coming here!
Amara’s patio area is scenic and quaint. I loved the lighting and the breeze you get from being located right next to the bay. My girlfriend & I loved the grouper ceviche, the coconut milk leche de tigre was outstanding & addictive. We also ordered the cheesy yucca bites, which were unctuous and indulgent. For our mains, we shared the grilled octopus & the arroz verde with the churrasco. Both were excellent! The grilled flavor of the octopus was perfect & the arroz verde was unlike any rice dish we’ve had before, it was rustic and it had the perfect balance of spice & freshness. We loved the crispy rice at the bottom of the cast iron! We definitely recommend trying it at least once. The service sucked tho.
Amazing cuisine and ambiance!!! Absolutely love this place
Great thank you
Loved it, the place, the view, food was great too
Great pace for brunch or dinner, it’s perfect if you get a nice table in front for the views. Food is really good ;)
Food was great but not phenomenal. Ambiance was phenomenal. Service was great but not phenomenal. Felt a little rushed by waiter to get up while having conversation. Valet parking at the end really put a damper on day. Valet company Luxe was a little rude when their system for credit cards wasn’t working. I told them I don’t carry cash ever and asked them at beginning if cash was needed and they said no. They replied with an attitude “what do you want me to do?” So not really happy with the valet company. Restaurant manager did not intervene on our behalf when asked. So that made the experience a little worse.
Food took very long. But they apologize and gave us complementary bubbles
Great food and service. Enjoyed our evening by the water.
Great food ambiance and open airy environment, especially important during these times. Staff attentive and very careful about COVID precautions.
Safe & socially distant experience ! Was great to get out of my apt for a nice dinner with great views.
Despite being in the middle of COVID mode, we had our best dining experience of 2020 at Amara! Ambiance is absolutely gorgeous and the flavor and food execution is On Point. There is something for everyone, On Trend, but also Family Friendly. Options for the meatiest of eaters as well as vegetarians and those managing the latest diets. Try a Makers Mark Whisky Sour with the Grouper Ceviche. The pairing will make your palate explode! Loved how the dessert was In Season with fresh Peaches on a Paloma. So happy to have Amara added to our neighborhood list and that it will surely be our sanity through COVID and beyond.
Great service, we’ve been going since the first week they opened. We even live next door so we frequently visited prior to COVID shut down. First time back , and everything on the menu including the drinks was revamped. Not necessarily bad just very different from what we expected. Same names just made differently.
Fantastic view and ambience. Delicious food and amazing cocktail with strawberries.
If you don’t like dogs don’t dine outdoors. There’s a dog park right outside and sometimes the dogs run in.
I live it there
AMAZING! One of my favourite stops in Miami for food, drink and vibes.
The food took forever to come out, when it did, it was cold.
We were a party of 4 and ate at separate times.
Hopefully it was just an off day.
The cheese puffs and fried cheese appetizers were great.
Our server Luis ! He is the best !
Bar was slow and kitchen too, but we are in the middle of the Corona virus crisis, then we can understand.
Food was ok ... steak and eggs ( so bad ) but pork collar and green rice 👌🏼
Wonderful place, I love it, thanks!
Beautiful restaurant with an outstanding service and view.
Great ambience with location on the water. Food was good and service attentive. Unfortunately, my son's strip steak was not cooked to temp he wanted. Sent back and was still too rare. Kitchen finally got it right with a new piece of steak. We enjoyed every dish we ordered and would gladly go back next time we're in Miami. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Beautiful setting. Well executed fish, roasted and ceviche. Good sides. Great cocktails. Not particularly creative. Highly recommended.
The setting is lovely, right on the water. If the hanging plants which decorated the outdoor seating had been real instead of silk, it would have been even nicer. My overall impression is that I felt gouged. The prices are a 10, the food is a 7. I tried the grilled octopus appetizer on the server’s gushing recommendation. It was interesting and I am glad I tried it but neither that, my partner’s steak, the salad we shared, nor anything else we had that night was truly outstanding. Some restaurants you leave knowing you definitely want to tell others about your find. To us, this wasn’t one of them.
We have been to Amara many times and always enjoyed. Our last visit was a disappointment as we had a server who was completely inattentive - which is not the norm.
Beautiful view you cannot get anywhere in Miami paired with best food in city!
Had chicken taco salad which was served in an uninspiring way.
