Bazaar Mar by Jose Andres at SLS Brickell - SBE
Third time in this restaurant. The worst occasion, so far. I got sick next day (seafood? probably sea urchin) .
By the way, why do they (or opentable) ask if there is any kind of special occasion celebration this night for dinner reason? (birthday? others?). It was in fact my birthday, and they all knew... but I even not received a warm greeting.
Excellent food! Such creative and inventive flare to all the dishes. Absolutely delicious!
Simply Special. Exceptional service, awesome food.
Excellent food and service. Beautiful space. Hard, uncomfortable chairs. Very loud. Need to spend at least $100 per person to avoid leaving hungry.
This was a great experience. It wasn't very busy, but our reservation wasn't until 9:00 on a Thursday. Regardless, the service and food were both exceptional. It was pretty pricey, but a memorable experience for sure.
OUTSTANDING CREATIVITY! out of this world in a class by itself!
Everything was sublime.
The chef’s choice meal was practically perfect in every way. We arrived early for this destination (7pm) and our many brilliantly inventive, beautiful, delectable tasting courses were served with aplomb but at warp-speed. I would still be chewing when one course would swoosh away and the next one would appear. Then, around 8, I got it. The restaurant filled and the final two courses were delivered by the tortoise. Our dessert was served at around 9, after a 30ish minute wait. Worth it all around, but I would course correct on the quirky pace. Notably yummy margarita frothed over with *salt air* — mmmhmm. Wish they had offered coffee with the superb and charming key lime sand castle dessert. Really memorable meal.
Extremely creative menu and artistic presentations.
one of the best chefs in miami ,great food and super funny and cordial staff
Brought my dad here for a nice dinner while he was in town. Usually we go to Komodo or Zuma but I’m so happy we picked a new spot. The food was so original and delicious. The waiter recommended the lox and bagel and the mushroom dish. Both were some of the best dishes either of us have had. The tuna ceviche and caviar cones could not be beat. We also tried the monkfish, octopus, and pan con tomate. All were fantastic. If you’re looking for something different in Miami give this place a try. I’ve been to Bazaar on Miami Beach but Bazaar Mar is my new favorite of the two.
Everything was perfect, excellent food , amazing service
Amazing food service. The best I will be back soon
Couple tables too close I would like more space that's the only thing I don't like
The room is divided the front has a cafeteria feel the back is a lot nicer (I would have preferred to be seated in the back room ) we did the Miami spice for 6 people it was ok . Food was tasty but portions are small . Dessert was disappointing . Not sure I would return to that location .
After eating at Bazaar Mar twice now, I think it may be one of the best restaurants in Miami, and I don't throw that around lightly! The artfulness - really, the genius - of the food comes through with every precious bite. There's true talent behind the design of these dishes. Beyond that, the atmosphere is unique and fun, and the service is excellent. Nothing to complain about (except that I can only afford it on special occasions!).
Since there are so many fine, but costly, dining options in Miami, we often use the Miami Spice season to try out new places to see if they are worth returing to during season. We have had some amazing meals and become frequent patrons at many restaurants found through Miami Spice. Our group was very disappointed this. Time, not in the quality of the food or the quality of the service (which was superb) but of the portions. I ordered a bowl of soup. It was amazing, but there was only about a 1/2 cup of liquid in the mostly empty bowl. Several of us ordered scallops and there were 3 medallians of a scallop, clearly cut into thin slices, as a main entree, essentially 1 1/2 scallops in total, served as an entree, really?
If as a business owner, you choose to participate, then commit to it.
Our party went down street to supplement our meal. Kind of ridiculous.
We had the Miami Spice menu and the plates were small but very satisfying and delectable. Service was extremely attentive. Love the open kitchen. Different seating areas and sushi bar make for an interesting and varied ambiance.
Great wine selection. Will definitely return!
This is an excellent restaurant. Fantastic take on Spanish cuisine with a modern touch. If there is one plate that you must try would be the Croquetas. Also the Gambas Al Ajillo and Spinach Catalanas were amazing. The decor was truly a reminder of the great sea restaurants of Barcelona and Lisbon. This a place to come for any anniversary celebration or just to have a wonderful meal with friends.
Extraordinary. We had the Miami spice menu. We will be back!!!!
In the audience on Monday night at Miami Book Fair event when José Andréas spoke of his experience in Puerto Rico moblilzing local kitchens to feed thousands after Hurriance Maria; we then determined to visit both of his MIami restaurants in the final week of Miami Spice. Tonight's dinner was a 10 out of 10, absolutely stellar-decor is a treat for the eyes, service is several cuts above the norm in Miami (thank you David and support staff), selections available from Miami Spice menu were numerous. Marinatied liquid olives were mentioned at the lecture and they lived up to the hype and then some, followed by crogquetas de bacalao, spinach, cauliflower, sea scallops, finished off with two noteworthy desserts: key lime pie 'our way' and grapefruit granita. Tapas and Meal happily paired with Salted Margarita and Premsal Blanc (Spain).
The hostess was fabulous. Followed up with me when I was at the bar and also during food service.
Muy bien todo
Great service, the whole waitstaff was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and prepared very well.
We went for dinner and got the Miami Spice Menu. Food was perfect in every way!
I had heard mixed reviews about Bazaar Mar so decided to try it during Miami Spice. When we told the server that we were going to do MS, his attitude totally changed.. rushed us and pressured us so much into ordering the food that it was disgusting and very hurtful. He did not explain us the dishes and told me that I should have done my home work and come...
I have visited several other restaurants during Miami Spice ( Jaya at Setai and Filia) where they were soo welcoming, did not treat us differently because were not doing regular menu.
Also, portions were too small
Unfortunately I chose to go there on my birthday..my biggest mistake
Overall horrible experience
bright, lively, and fun atmosphere. Very creative food...delicious!
Delicious but expensive. The portions were relatively small for Miami Spice but offered a great variety. We plan to return, but will likely need to save up for a while in order to do so. Loved the ambiance, the adjacent bar, and the staff.
Unreal experience at the Bazaar highly reccomend👌🏽
I was very disappointed for the size of the table for 2 people. Based on the premises of the small plates coming together the table is very uncomfortable and makes us desiring to get out asap without enjoying the experience as it deserves.
Still love it but I may not be a regular as much as I have been.
From the moment we walked in the door at Bazaar Mar, we were greeted and treated with spectacular service and attention. From the servers dropping off the food with their detailed description of each dish to the hostess seating us who provided us girls with a shawl in case we got cold. There were 4 of us dining together and we all opted for the Miami spice tasting menu, which was quite satisfactory, and we supplemented it with 2 extra dishes. Plenty of food and it was a wonderful assortment. My favorite dishes include the bagel and lox, cod croquettes, fried snapper, octopus (portion size was small). The tableside caipirinhas were phenomenal and a great way to end the evening!
I am very pleased with the whole experience in Bazaar Mar, one of the best places in Miami. the food was amazing, highly recommend the funnel cake, the gambas, and the octopus. Their molecule food is just genius. I love this place I definitely come back.
We had an excellent time at Bazaar Mar. Our waiter Antonio was very knowledgeable and made my wife and I feel welcome. The tasting menu was PHENOMENAL and can’t wait to go back and try some other gems from the menu. Overall, excellent.
We have tried many Miami Spice restaurants, but this is our favorite by far! They offer a nice variety of delicious food. You won't go home hungry. Our waiter, Antonio, gave us great suggestions. We really loved the funnel cake and lox and bagel for the first bite. The crab bun was outstanding and so was the shrimp, the skirt steak and the fried snapper. Every sauce delicious too! The desserts are ok and could be changed up for something chocolate! Overall delicious!!
If you are looking for a molecular gastronomy experience this is the place. Made reservations for Miami Spice but ended up doing one of their tasting menus for $125. In hindsight it would have been better to do the Miami Spice menu with some additional dishes as the tasting menu had at two items we wouldn’t have selected. The bagel and lox was amazing as was the deconstructed key lime pie for dessert. The service was good, but started to get a little slow as the restaurant busy. Dinner for four with the midrange tasting menu, two cocktails , sparkling water instead of tap and an excellent job of up-selling extra items from the waiter resulted in a $848 check.
The staff provided great service. They were helpful in making menu selections and accommodating for one off requests. A great birthday celebration.
The place itself is beautiful and the service was good. After spending a couple hundred dollars, I went home and raided my fridge. The food was great, don't get me wrong, but the portions couldn't have possibly been smaller. I understand that this is a "tapas-style" restaurant, but these tapas make tapas anywhere else look like full size entrees at the Cheesecake Factory. Bottom line, plan to eat before or after you go there for a meal.
The Miami spice menu was tasty. Everything was great though their tapas is like one bite plates. The space is cute. The abundant staff are all polite. Super tasty yet after I’m sitting here hungry for something that will fill me up. It’s kinda disappointing to spend so much and be hungry. Great place for anorexic models who can’t eat.
Food is very good, size is very small, service is not that good, prices are exagerated!!!
