Loved the garden setting, doesn’t feel like you are in south beach especially Washington ave. Its the perfect Mediterranean escape, pleasantly surprised by the food and service as well. I had a wonderful octopus and salad, they have a lot of great meat options but if you’re a vegetarian there’s so many dishes, they make their own hummus and dips.. yum! Drank a delicious dry Riesling and Slovenian Sauvignon blanc was amazing too! Plus I love to finish it off with a Turkish tea or coffee! Heavenly!

We travel to Miami once or twice each year and always include Babylon on our visit. The outdoor dining area is very nice, the food is always great, and the wait staff are attentive without being overly so. The only drawback is the noise from traffic on the adjacent streets, but we simply tune it out and focus on the positives. We've tried most of the cold and hot appetizers as well as the many variations on grilled entrees, shish kebabs, and chops. All have been delicious. The cocktails and wines are very reasonably priced when compared to other South Beach restaurants.

Having traveled to Turkey and most other Mediterranean countries and enjoyed their cuisine, I say "OK, this isn't like dining in Izmir or Istanbul or Santorini....but it's as good as I've found in the US".

We will always go back.

Muy mal servicio, pedimos salmón, un dorado entero con ensalada y nada estaba fresco. El bufete no tiene muchas proteínas para combinar con los acompañantes. Definitivamente no volvería. !!!

Took our friend Richard for his Birthday & unfortunately it was a huge mistake !
Cafeteria food quality!’ Babylon was not like that - yes they improved the garden area, placed a retractable roof over which gets very warm, fortunately there are fans around to cool you off !! Service was minimum, lack attentiveness although they did try after pointing out there was need for more coffee ( which by the way is $4 per cup every time U ask for coffee) tea refills are free - In general the quality was not there for what we are used to : Felt more like a tourist trap for South Beach goers !
That’s unfortunately because we were also thinking of having an anniversary party there but definitely it is not the venue to have it ! The Brunch menu was not the best sample of good food , it gave me the impression is meager or scarce of quality !!

the food came to us at different times. There was at least 15-25 minutes from the time the first person was served till the 4th person was saved. There was also flies all over the table once the first plate was put down. I have been going to this restaurant for years and this was not a good experience, but this is the first time I have not enjoyed myself.

The food, as usual, was delicious. Our server, however, was not what we expected. He practically forgot about us. We had to wave at him just to get water. It waited a long time to for him to take our order, the same or longer for the dessert, which were brought to our table about 20 minutes apart. We were about to live when the last 2 dessert were brought to us. We consume over $300 (4 people) worth of food.

We are not coming back again.

Maybe it was just that it was Christmas Day and they had a hard time getting proper help, but there was one ONE waiter for all tables, including the table of 25 near us that received whatever attention the one waiter could give. Half the items on the menu "we're out of!" and the restaurant had opened not an hour before. The waiter did not write order down, so only two of the three appetizers were served. We finally gave up and left without even ordering an entree. What a shame because it's such a lovely setting and a beautiful day.

Enjoyed a table outside at this wonderful Turkish / Mediterranean Miami restaurant. Ample landscaping provides separation from the street, making the patio an oasis in South Beach. The grilled octopus appetizer was excellent. Expect lots of lamb, eggplant and Turkish pita, which is more like bread than its flat Greek cousin. Plenty of tasty vegetarian options too. Great place for date night, and can accommodate larger parties too.
