Summary: I’VE BEEN ASKED TO LEAVE THE RESTAURANT BY ITS GENERAL MANAGER ...

On may 8th 2021 I had a reservation just with my girlfriend at 10.30pm, my bad We showed up at 11.00pm. However, they still accepted us. Restaurant was still busy and DJ was playing in the lobby. All normal. We sat outside, myself and my girlfriend kindly asked the waiter to seat us on another table closer to the pool area (as music was loud and we love the outside pool area) more than a table were available in that section and they were all clear and ready to be used. The waiter called Juan David (who claimed to be the general manager) whom instead of trying to accommodate our easy request started a conversation in a very arrogant manner telling us we couldn’t move and using the EXCUSE that our reservation was at 10.30 and they were already being nice accepting us...!!!! I let it go because I didn’t want to argue. Then my girlfriend tried again (in an extremely nice way) to ask the waiter to accommodate us as we didn’t understand the reason of the GM’s response. Juan David came back and flipped ! He was rude and arrogant (again ) to my girlfriend (I was intentionally trying to avoid a conversation with him) . At that point I had to intervene and asked him that if the problem was us being late then he should have told us a we would leave , instead of mixing our request with that fact. 2 things aren’t related .

Juan David at that point suggested me we should leave.... taking our menu away and even touching my shoulder (pushing me) trying to escort me outside in the middle of other tables dining ... he also mentioned that we were wasting his time .

I’ve been a miami resident for over 7 years now and I have NEVER experienced something like this before . It literally shocked me the way we were treated and it’s very sad to see this happening. I was also a LONG time client at Ribbon (together with all my friends here ) but we clearly we will all reconsider after this sad event .

Only has rave reviews because most food in south beach is mediocre and the food was genuinely good. They didn't have the table we reserved though and it was so loud where we ended up that ordering sushi was almost impossible.

Service was attentive and friendly. The setting, an outdoor patio around the pool, was lively and comfortable. The appetizers were just fair – the crispy cauliflower was undercooked and the beef dimplings were in a sauce that was far too salty. But the sushi and sashimi were very good, so we enjoyed the meal.

CONSISTENTLY VERY GOOD
From the moment you check in, to the moment you finish
This place is a rock for South Beach serving the widest array of fish options for sushi (yes more than Nobu, Zuma, or other great restaurants), unique and very delicious warm dishes (like the Lamb baby back ribs) and their famous fried chicken.
One of the few places where drinks are well made, great ice, and they know what a lemon twist looks like!

We made a 10:45pm reservation which they had as an option and we were grateful for, but when we showed up they told us that we needed to get our full order in by 11pm. I understand that the kitchen closes at a certain time, but allowing a reservation 15 mins before closing is cutting it a bit close. We felt very rushed.

Restaurant was severely backed up when we arrived for our 8:30 reservation. We waited for about 45 minutes for a table even with a reservation. Service was pretty slow and food was not anything special. The hostess was working overtime to get people seated, even bussing tables.

This place used to be on point. Something happened, maybe ownership changed. First host stand was unmanned and when we were greeted at the entrance to restaurant by a person who we later found out actually was the hostess, that person excoriated us for not stopping at the vacant host stand.
Then the services was strange. The only person that checked on us was a person that was not our waiter and he would very ocassionally stop at our table and ask us if we wanted to order anything else and then if so he would call the waiter over who was standing nearby staring into space.
I only am being a little critical here because in the past service at this place was stellar.
