Server was amazing! He explained how the restaurant imports their ingredients from Mexico to ensure authenticity in the cuisine. He made great recommendations based on our preferences. Food came out quickly and was delicious! Highly recommend :)

We were skeptical at 1st, but the great reviews helped us go on and try this spot out. The food was awesome. The ambiance was very relaxing and beautiful. The staff from the hostess, the guy who poured our water to the waiter Michael was top 10. We loved it so much. The prices are equal to the value of food and experience. We're from Atlanta and frequent Miami quite a bit so we'll definitely be back every time we visit.

Server was odd. Food was good besides the rubber band the cook forget to remove, but it’s “part of the business” according to one of the waiters. The rubber band was in my friends food, but it bothered me more than anything. Whatever mistakes happen. At least there’s a nice ambience.

Second time at Bakan. Service was so horrible today, I’m still amazed at how they can run a restaurant in such a disorganized way. It was over 10 minutes before the server approached our table and it only happened after I waved a staff member. When he approached, I said we were ready to order, and he replied by saying the designated server would be with us shortly— that didn’t happen and the same guy came over again and asked whether we wanted any drinks or if we already knew what we wanted to order... when I said we knew what we wanted, he had no choice but to take the order. Minutes later, we had the actual server come over to introduce himself. The restaurant was not super busy and there were a lot of staff walking around so I don’t understand what took so long.

Later while eating the main course, the server awkwardly stood next to us as if to hand out the check, but clearly it was meant for another table. Then when it was time for dessert, it took a while. The whole meal was an ordeal and it’s not because they’re short staffed or too busy.

It’s sad how such bad service outweighs anything positive that could be said about the food.

The owner is a seasoned Miami restaurateur with multiple concepts, each location created from the heart. The attention to detail in the decor, from the beautiful Mexican tiles, to the perfectly crisp blue corn tortilla chips. I love this restaurant for the food, atmosphere and delicious cocktails!

The brunch was tasty and well presented. The Miami Spice special meals were a bit skimpy side; but delicious, non-the-less. Our service was very good. And the crowd in the restaurant was fun to be with.

Great ambiance, modern Mexican decor. Goof menu with a variety of options. Unfortunately one host and waitress were not very service oriented. One of the hostess was away from being the typical nice and friendly first face to welcome you into the restaurant, the server seemed to be in a rush all the time, not approachable at all. Server told us food will arrive "family style", meaning as it was available out f the kitchen, however the same plate for some of the guests arrived way spaced from one another. Definitely they can improve on service.

We were there for the Miami Spice special. The food was okay. The best things we had was the Chilean sea bass tacos and the flan. We ordered a kids meal for our daughter and it didn’t come did not come out even after my wife and I finished our main courses. We decided to ask them to cancel it because it was long overdue. They kindly decided to give it to us for free to go because it was so late and I’m guessing it was cooked already. The atmosphere is really nice also.
