We had the sea bass from menu and lamb shank dinner. Neither were very flavorful. Beautiful dinner patio. The table next to us has kids on phones with volume on - kind of distracting.

We always enjoy this place as the food is good and our server was excellent.
The reason for the low rating this time is because of many guests arrived, walked around and left the restaurant without wearing a mask. The host and owner did not seem to care. Unacceptable! We shall go back but on a less busy eve/after this is all over.

There is absolutely NO parking. Until they do some type of valet service, I will not go back.
The waitress did not know details about the menu.
The street noise was not their fault, but it was a problem.
The food was DELICIOUS.

Good restaurant and ambiance. Food was good. I’ve had Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food all over the world. It was good. Not the best I’ve had. Service was also good. The chef and owner were apparently from Turkey I was told by the server. I would recommend it.

I wasn’t going to write this after my bad experience cus that’s not my style but I just saw my bank charge and now I have to. We went on a busy Saturday night at 8pm. Place was full outside. Our first set of drinks took 45min to come out and only did so after reminding our server twice. They were not only the wrong flavor but very average. Our grilled octopus app was also very average; overcooked and lacking any flavor. It seem like they were really understaffed and a lot of the bad service came from bad management decisions. Our server told us the bar was backed up. But then they kept sitting new walk-in groups at the bar to wait for a table...?!? We order our mains, which take another 30-45mins to come out. Mixed grill; It was pretty tasty but nothing special. Here’s what took the cake. We ordered another round of drinks cus “hey if we suffered why not get a bit litty.” We ask for two mojitos (1 normal and 1 passion). The server hands it to me and I’m like this looks weird? It was totally clear. They hadn’t put any lime in it. Keep in mind this is a LIME BASED drink. I politely ask for a little lime without complaining that they f*cked up yet another simple thing. He tells me they have no lime left. These guys had the AUDACITY to send me a drink without 1/4 of the ingredients. Not only did they not tell us when we ordered it but they brought it to me without saying anything. As if I wouldn’t notice that my drink just tasted like minty sugar water. Also absolutely skimped on the booze in the second one, not even sure it had any. At the end of the day we didn’t want to make a scene because the servers were visibly overworked and stressed. Bill was about $130. We gave our server a $20 tip in cash so the bar wouldn’t take any of it. Then 3 days later I see that they felt entitled to just add themselves another $15 tip!!! I had written $0 and clearly crossed through the tip line on my check. Take your business elsewhere. SHADY! Terrible experience.

Ozi was such a delight as our server. The food was fantastic. Very good hummus! We ordered the Adana kabobs, mixed meat platter, and they were fantastic. If you like Middle Eastern, I recommend it. The Turkish accents are a nice touch, too.

Arrived on time for New Year’s Eve reservation, they had massively overbooked and could not seat us and several others. Those who waited got indoor tables packed very close together for an extra COVIDy dining experience.

What a nice intimate gem in the middle of the craziness of south beach. Very romantic, whether sitting inside or out. We actually felt safer inside as the outside terrace was very busy on our visit, which was our second time there. Will definitely return as there were many dishes that we would still like to try. Our waiter, David, was fabulous.

the hummus and baba ganoush were ok, nothing exciting. I would say the eggplant for the baba ganoush wasn’t soft really. The lamb chops were great. Cocktails were ok.

Food was AMAZING!!! The service could have DEFINITELY been a lot better
We made reservations for my mother’s birthday and they did absolutely NOTHING special or even greeted her with a happy birthday.
The food definitely made up for the service but don’t think I’ll be back.

The most tender octopus of any restaurant in the United States! An absolute must when choosing an appetizer.

Huge steak, cooked medium rare as requested, with a fabulous, homemade sauce on the side.

Tables available both indoors and outside in the lovely garden.

Absolutely perfect service. Parking (shockingly) easily available on the street. Extremely highly recommended!

Probably there was a change in management because there is no Sunday brunch and the menu has become less tempting. Food quality has changed: it’s not as tasty as used to be. Grilled octopus was not grilled but cooked or steamed... not good at all
