Terrible service! Took 40 minutes just to get our appetizer. The food was awful and our server never asked how things were.

Dined on the patio again for the Breakfast Buffet. Everything was delicious. Hot items were served hot and cold were cold. My wife had a made to order omelette which she said was fantastic. Our server Melissa was very attentive and kept our glasses filled. This was our best experience here yet.

Dined outside for late lunch. Chicken salad sandwich on croissant was outstanding. Once we were served the service was outstanding from veteran server. Younger server seemed more inclined to clean table than wait on newly seated customers.

We dined outside and had the breakfast buffet, which is outstanding. My wife had a prepared to order veggie omelet which she she really liked. Everything on the buffet was of very high quality and great selection. A very nice selection of breads, cheeses, meats, etc. The only thing I would give a slight ding to would be to the lack of warmth on the mixed whole potatoes, otherwise everything was good. This is one of the best hotel restaurants on the beach I have read. As to the service, the hotel was only 60% occupied, so they seemed surprised by the amount of foot traffic in restaurant today. However, Natalie was awesome and provided outstanding service even with all the tables she had to serve.

Restaurant appeared to be short-staffed. Waited for someone to appear to seat us. Waited for a waitress. Food was good but overpriced. Wine list was not impressive for the value - appeared to be a big markup. Bottles we had were $69. They listed for $19.99 online. Martini was ‘upcharged’ due to request for blue cheese olives. Waitress was great but appeared to be stretched. Expensive night for a mediocre experience.

Service was outstanding however the food (I ordered the Salmon) was average. My first drink was not mixed so at first I thought it tasted like water but once I stirred it, it was great! The manager was very attentive and checked on us and made sure my next drink was PERFECT. I will go back and try their brunch but I wasn’t blown away by their dinner options.

We went for the Sunday brunch, and I’m sorry to say the menu was disappointing. I think the point of brunch is to be able to dabble into a variety of food (breakfast and lunch). The menu instead offered a few choices overall, and they were either breakfast or lunch. I ordered a watermelon based smoothy that was really gritty and watered down. I then ordered the fig and berry toast. The “toast” was a thick and dry style bread that was not toasted. The cream cheese and drizzled honey was sparse, so it was just a very dry and unpleasant meal. The grits I ordered next (side dish) were tasty, but they only come plain with cheese. This is a missed opportunity to add variety to the menu (add different grits topping options). The atmosphere is nice and the staff was friendly and attentive. My friend’s sandwich and waffle fries meal was definitely a better choice overall.

Decided to try this place since it was local to my nearby hotel and I liked the menu options. I was quickly greeted and seated upon arrival and to my surprise the restaurant was pretty much empty so no complaints here. My server was super helpful in helping me decide what to chose which ultimately was their signature hot chicken. He was able to swap out the bread for a waffle instead which I really appreciated. This dish is enough for two people really, chicken was very favorable with a hint of spice, waffle was one of the best I’ve ever had, I could taste the cornbread and the ambiance was romantic. I would visit again when I’m back in the area.

The chicken was great and the portions are really large. But service is very, very slow, no one ever came by to see if we needed anything (water refills) or take additional drink orders. If you're not pressed for time, the food is great.

The food for 1 it is really for 3 people. Too much quantity and very low quality. The salmon with risotto, the risotto was too salty. The pork had industrialized barbecue on top! Took really to long to come. My wife didn’t touch its dish! I had a quarter of the pork... it was so bad that the manager didn’t charge us! I would prefer paying and have a good diner instead of like it was. Last, but not least, there was a door every time it was opened it came a cold wind from outside. A restaurant can’t have a door like that!!

The entire staff was lovely. Alec our waiter was outstanding. He knew exactly what we wanted and kept the evening going smoothly.
We shared the Hot Chicken! Still eating it. Delish but huge portion.
The fries were perfect and dessert was Key Lime I think.
Great evening. Would go again and get the Chicken and Waffles! Already planning.

The food seemed very delayed without reason as there were very few people dining and our server barely came to attend to us.

Came to celebrate an anniversary. We thought that brunch was served everyday, but we were mistaken (only on Sundays). We were still able to get brunch menu food made for us by the restaurant. It was the most amazing experience and the staff were extremely courteous. This restaurant is a must on Miami Beach!
