Charbroiled ribeye was overpowered by the charbroil.
Food wasn’t great, service OK, but the place and the views are beautiful
Beautiful view of the bay. We had great service and the food was outstanding. We shared the snapper for two and it was perfect. Waiter gave us a great wine recommendation. The coconut cake was light, moist and delish!!!. Cant wait to return
Great service, great food and great views. Cocktails were creative and interesting. Will definitely return.
Amazing view, nice ambience and great service. Miami Spice Menu for lunch was not my favorite.
Loved the setting and the ambience. The food as always was great.
This is a great place to have a date night, recommend sitting outside if it’s not to muggy out because the view is remarkable! The food is great and the selections of drinks are endless. The short rib was very delectable and the oysters are a must have! Would certainly revisit soon and recommend to others! Ambiance was very quiet and romantic so the place overall gets a 5 out of 5 stars.
I just really enjoyed the atmosphere, the staff, the menu options and the only negative comment - the wine list is small and pricey.
Love it !!!
To begin, you cannot go wrong nased on their wine selection. I ordered grilled black grouper which was cooked to perfection. My husband had the grilled lamb ribs. which he felt was over cooked & the food was just ok. We had the rice verde as side and the white sweet potato. Overall and because of the ambiance, we truly enjoyed the dinner. Now, if you ask me how eager I would be to visit again, My husband isn't extremley excited and can wait a while, however, I will most likely visit again if I want to impress my clients. The food is very costly, however it is an upscale restautant. I encourage everyone to visit and experice Amara at Paraiso for themselves.
The food and service excellent, we chose a table with amazing view of the bay , definitely will recommend Amara to our friends
Great service, view and food. 5 stars
It was fabulous. Everything about the place from the location on the bay to the ambiance inside n the food n service was outstanding. Highly recommend
Great food and atmosphere. We were not thrilled by the slow service. We went there around 2Pm for lunch and the place was little busy, but this doesn’t explain why I had to wait 10 more minutes to get my appetizer after my wife got hers!? When I asked the server about my appetizer he apologized and came back with it right away...so it’s been sitting ready for some time??...We got the Miami Spice lunch. The food is really good and tasty, the shrimp appetizer is delicious and the rib-eye sandwich is very good. I won’t recommend the lamb tacos there were bland. All good but service needs to improve
Charming place, delicious food and a great view!!!
Restaurant was delicious. The value was only good because it was for Miami Spice. Had it been a regular priced menu the value would be lower just because of price to quantity of food ratio. But the food was delicious and with an amazing view of the bay.
love it. i will be back for sure. nice ambient , atmosphere , i went sunday afternoon, we have a great time , the have a DJ playing nice house music, we love it
The restaurant was spectacular... a wow beautiful ambiance the view is unique and the food was pretty good also the service was unique
Creative and excellent brunch, with great service and ambiance. Would have rated service higher if it wasn't for their valet staff.
Went to have Sunday brunch. Drinks were average; personally, menu choices was limited but tasty. But, atmosphere was great! Will go back.
Estuvo muy bien la recepción en la barra. Luego pasamos a una mesa afuera , y la comida demoró 40 minutos y el bife estaba frío .
Great place, delicious food. Looking forward to coming back again.
Great food and awesome ambiance.
Always a pleasure, high standard service, beautiful place and amazing food
My son and I went there to have a mother/son lunch. The view is breathtaking. The restaurant is nice. I opened my napkin to place it in my lap and it was dirty. I over looked that by folding it. Then ee ordered the ceviche as an appetizer and there was a hair wrapped in the ceviche. When our server, Sandra came over I showed her the napkin and the hair inside the ceviche. She barely apologized and took the ceviche away. At that point I told her I did not want ceviche any longer. I do not care how wonderful the restaurant is, finding a hair in an $18 plate of ceviche is unacceptable. I should have taken a picture, but I’m not that type of person.
The meal I ordered was way too spicy. But they replaced it with something less spicy and it was wonderful
Amara es una pequeña joya en Miami. Esta vez tuve la oportunidad de sentarme en los sofás con vista a la bahía.
Un lugar maravilloso, mágico!
We waited over 25 minutes in our table to order our first drink.
Waitress was super nice, I think she had to many tables to serve.
Great ocean view
Feels like vacation when we dine or brunch here and the funny thing, is we live here! Great vibe. Always pretty people, great cocktails and food. As long as you are aware of of what your ordering it is a good value. for always delicious food. The desire to try a lot of different things can make your bill go up. Overall I love this place. A perfect substitute for s beach.
Excellent service, food, ambiance. Highly recommended.
I had brunch there. The service was outstanding and the food was well prepared. The view is to die for.
Great view from the bay to Miami Beach.
Excellent food, good to share in the middle, and lovely place.
Service was deficient but not bad.
I made an appointment and still waited
30 mins standing without a way to order anything at the bar in the meantime because it was full
We really enjoyed ourselves. Everyone was welcoming. The food was delicious and the scenery was so beautiful
Went last Saturday. First time and did enjoy. My hanger steak was great, so was the Amara Feijoada.
But the catch of the day Banana Leaf Wrapped Grouper was actually pretty bland and overcooked as well. The service needs much improvement. Our main attendant would disappear for long periods and disinterested. We seem to always have to flag down the assistant normally charged with the water and picking up. He was terrific. The main server not at all. Certainly detracted from evening.
Also, menu prices were fine, the wine list generally ridiculously marked up. Might return, but other choices will come first.
It would be perfect if it wasn’t for the often rude valet service.
Great food and incredible service. The yuca puffs were beyond. Hangar steak was delicious.
Beautiful, delicious and great service but beware of MSG!!!
