    The cocktails were good and so was the food. But we felt for as much as we paid for we probably would’ve wanted more. And although the menu doesn’t really have anything that stood out our meal was very good (steak frites). The service was great making the whole experience pleasant.

    We were initially disappointed because we booked here for a riverside outdoor dining experience based on what was clearly an outdated article (not the restaurant's fault). But our disappointment turned around quickly as the service was exceptional, particuarly based on what is standard in Miami. The food was great - Kush with a french spin. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our meal. We will definitely return, especially when the deck reopens (hopefully in May/June).

    The appetizers were great and the drinks were creative and good. The meals were okay, not bad but nothing to rave about. We ordered the fried shrooms and barbecue cauliflower as apps and the chicken and waffles and vegan choripan for the meal. The place is cute and it was great to follow up the meal with the comedy show on the first floor.

    Very cute. We went towards the end of the night on a Tuesday so I’m sure it was a more mellow & quiet experience than most people get. Really enjoyed the service & atmosphere - everyone is really friendly and casual, and in regards to the space it’s a perfectly eclectic corner of Miami.

    The food we are able to eat was pretty good…but 2 of the 4 meals didn’t arrive after sitting nearly 90 minutes as they were having trouble in the kitchen (short staffed). The only communication came because we asked repeatedly for an update after the first 45 minutes and we told over and over it would be just a few more minutes. We ultimately asked for our check so we could go find food elsewhere. My biggest issue is no one apologized…literally just acted like nothing happened. There were other issues with the service (no napkins or silverware after some of the food items were delivered…or giving me a bottle of coke with the top still on and the waitress coming back 10 minutes later to open it). Whole thing was bizarre…wanted to like it but the staff had a really bad day and didn’t seem to care.

    We read some good reviews for Cafe Kush and decided to check it out. It’s situated beside a canal which has the occasional manatee floating by. The atmosphere is kitschy and comfortable and a wonderful spot on a nice evening. We had some great cocktails to start. Service was responsive but a little uneven we had the fried mushrooms which were terrific, the dinner salad topped by wonderful crispy chicken that was succulent. We added the burger with cheddar and truffle fries which were both top shelf. We ended the meal with great key lime pie with a pecan crust Great time, nice restaurant, very good food and will repeat and bring friends

    There was a problem with one dish - the mussels in white wine - where a dozen of the mussels did not open which could result in a dangerous medical situation if the diner ingests one. They made it right by not charging us for that dish and hopefully alerted the chef as we insisted that they do. The other meals were fine although the marinated pork chop was a little too salty, most likely because it was marinated for 48 hours in brine. The service was outstanding! Our waiter Pedro was attentive without hovering and the staff that brought out our food were extremely efficient. We consider this place a find in the Mimo district and would return if only because of the service.

    The food was good and in.line with what you would expect from a Kush establishment. The cauliflower mash is very tasty as a side and the attempts at French inspired fare is good. The chicken sandwich was nothing special so go with what you know they are k own for and you will be fine. Thumbs up on carpaccio and chicken and waffles.

    We waited 30 minutes for drinks, food was cold, servers were sparse and gratuity included of course;) I’d have thought they’d at least comp the 2 drinks we waited till after our dinner was served. Beautiful space with tons of potential but they have that terrible white lights everywhere which kills the vibe. Have hope for the place, will try again in a few months

    I enjoyed my time at Kush the atmosphere is fantastic. We sat outside and got to see some manatees after first sitting at the bar inside (which is a bit too cold for me). The bartender and server that we had couldn't be nicer and very informative. Food wasn't so great but maybe it was an off night. Definitely will give this place a try again!

    Fried mushrooms and boulevardier cocktail were great. Sad there wasn't any Key Lime pie at the time, but creme brulee was also good. Coq au vin was good over all, but I preferred the mussels. Grateful for the new outside dining option in the neighborhood, and will be back to try the brunch.

    It’s a cool place. Overall, they need to work on the presentation and attention to detail on the plates. The charcuterie platter look like my 5yo little niece put it together. I also ordered mussels to share , which they were good, but we need it a bit more bread to soak into the sauce. I asked our friendly server for more bread, and they delivered just 3 little pieces of bread to share among my friends. Little details like that.
