Great food with okay service.
Good food poor service, cocktails not so great. I recommend the octopus and steak, really nice decor but really noisy crowd.
I have no words to describe how excellent everything was! Food was amazing and outstanding service defiantly recommend this place!
AWESOME FOOD! Great service! Seriously the food is SO fresh and delicious. Fun place!
Food was great, the noice level a little too high.
Food is amazing, restaurant is
so cool. You can hear the music next door plus in Bakan so its a lot of noise. Waiter only came a couple times
to check up on us but it was because their system had shut down and were dealing with a dilemma but our last drinks were on the house because of
this. Overall amazing.
Food and service were great... But it was a very uncomfortable humid evening of dining on their patio.
Very poor air circulation. The restaurant is particularly open air situated on a bright, busy corner in Wynwood with no shade. If the installed large ceiling fans to force the air downward, it would supplement the small ineffective fans the have on the sides.
My advice... sit inside for the a/c. Hopefully you can tolerate the volume of noise inside.
July 3rd dinner: great food, delicious drinks and friendly / attentive wait staff.
BUT, there were big disconnects all evening between the waitstaff and the bar - each drink order for our tabel (4 pax) was followed by a 15 min delay, and then a follow-up request by us. The cocktail are $12-16... shouldnt be that hard to get a drink order filled.
Decided to try Bakan on my 39th birthday. Great ambiance and the food was amazing. Our waiter went above and beyond. My only critique would be that the hostesses could have been a little more friendly when seating us (we had a reservation but they still made us wait about 15 minutes in the Sun outside before seating us). All in all, I highly recommend Bakan and will be coming back!
Birthday and staff Aldi sing
The food and the service were great. I would definitely go back but I would make sure that I have a reservation inside the restaurant because it is currently very hot in Miami and also the surroundings are very noisy.
Awesome spot! We went for lunch on a Saturday me and a girlfriend and we had a great time! Sat outside by the fans and wasn't too hot out. Food came out super fast! So did the margaritas which were awesome.
All the food is delicious! Service was very attentive. I hadn’t seen my family in a long time and everyone enjoyed everything!
Too much Cheese on food.
Food was good. But the musoc is extremely loud inside. We asked the waiter if the music could go little less. They did not response. Conversation with each other was difficult. Not the first place where I would go back to.
The Jaguar Group has batted 1,000 at the 3 restaurants I've enjoyed: Jaguar, Peacock Cafe and Talavera.
I had great expectations for Bakan. The menu looks fabulous. The facility is nicely designed. The staff is well-trained, the Kitchen does a fine job. On paper and in appearance, this should be the best restaurant in Wynwood. It has everything going for it. But, the implementation and execution falls short. It's almost good. The food is good quality, but it misses the mark. I was so disappointed in the drinks, which were over-iced and short on liquid, they were supposed to be mezcal based product and I felt shortchanged in the flavor and quantity departments. The cheese appetizer was perfect though. Truly excellent. The mole sauce were good, but not great. For the chicken mole, they seemed to have simply boiled the chicken and poured mole sauce over it. There was no flavor imbued by the sauce to the chicken. They same thing with the short rib and the coloradito mole -- two separate items combined at the last minute. It was good product, but not the savory experience hoped for. We passed on dessert. We were too disappointed. On the plus side, the waiter and bus staff were very good, attentive, and effective. The music was edgy, loud and intrusive, eroding the quality of the eating experience.
Food was extremely slow (and there was few tables being served).
Main Servers (waiters) have plenty of space to improve in terms of customer service
Helpers are too "pushy" about retiring foods and drinks from table when is not finished
Food Quality is spectacular so I hope they can work on the service improvement
Food was very good. Service good, though I think they wanted to get rid of us. Be aware tourists: smoking is allowed outside at this restaurant (and apparently everywhere on Miami). I’m a member of the spoiled coastal elite and not used to smoking ruining an otherwise great meal.
Food was good but the beer was warm and no frosted mug.
WAY WAY WAY to loud and it was only half full. Our kind server had the music turned down twice, but still very hard to have a conversation.
Beautiful restaurant, the food was good, plenty of choices. We also enjoyed our beverages. The noise level was a bit loud, the acoustics were not good in that room especially during prime time with a full dining room.
Our server was nice however he was a bit overwhelmed, the rest of the staff did not seem very experienced. However the restaurant opened recently and perhaps there are lots of kinks to work out, it’s a tough business. I would give it a second try.
We had a great time exploring the menu. The service was wonderful and the food delicious!
Drinks were pretty good and ambience was really nice. Fish tacos were amazing but overpriced, all the other plates were decent at best but not worth the price at all. Service was mediocre.
Sea bass tacos were out of this world!
The food was very good!! High quality ingredients, authentic Mexican flavors, good service. I had a reservation for 9:30 pm, we were waiting almost 30 minutes for our table, the service was good but a little rushed and is a very noisy place. We had a good night!
One of the best Mexican meals I’ve had in my life including Michelin starred places in my home city of New York. 110% recommend.
Good place! Love the food. Unique in Miami.
Meeting for work
I may not be the best person to review a Mexican restaurant because I don't love Mexican food. With that said, the guac is fantastic and the fresh chips are out of the park. Portions are huge and tasty and love the ambiance and design of the place. They have a crazy amount of Mezcal bottles and cocktails are delish. The service was ok, leaving us waiting for items on several occasions, but I'm sure that has to do with each particular server. Definitely one to revisit.
Definitely without any hesitation. Great food, great ambience in the heart of Wynwood.
One of the best meals in Miami. I will return
The food was amazing!
Exceptional service and food!!! Staff was friendly and attentive. The food was authentic and amazing. Highly recommend. Will be back
Everything was great. The drinks, food and the vibe were perfect
Wonderful experience but the food took the prize!
Beautifully decorated. Good sophisticated Mex!
No one noticed it was our anniversary.
Food was great! Service was great! We were disappointed there was no tortilla chips and salsa offered to us while we waited for our friends to arrive.
We have been here several times now and the food is consistently excellent! The queso fundido con chorizo and quacamole are two of our favorite apps. Love the classic margaritas. Tried the mango goat cheese cheesecake for dessert and it was fantastic. We have not had anything on the menu that would don't like. The taco platters are excellent and a great deal. The service has become much better, it appears they were off to a bit of a rough start, but have definitely made progress. We dined inside this time, the music could have been a tad softer, a little hard to hear at times, but still a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend this place to anyone! We will be back!
Outstanding - Food, drinks, music, service!
Looking forward to our next visit!
