The philosophy here is simple: to create the kind of place anyone would love to discover in the heart of one of America's greatest destinations - Miami Beach. Stylish, relaxed, and easy, this is more of a home than a hotel, welcoming its guests to a whole new Miami experience by combining art and leisure in a charming residential atmosphere. This is the perfect getaway steps away from the beach. Built in 1928 as El Paraiso Apartments, the building's design, decor and amenities are steeped in Miami Beach's early Spanish architectural roots and feature a soothing Mediterranean flair.

The food was great. They didn't have the creme brûlée which I was looking forward to.The food took a little long to come out but it was worth it because it was delicious and fresh. We went on a Monday night and the place was really quiet.

Casa Faena Restaurant is one of the newest dining experiences in our area and it is also one of the our best. I took advantage of Miami Spice offer to visit restaurant. The food and ambiance were great. The restaurant was empty when we got there even though it was a Sunday evening. There were a couple of parties that joined us afterwards. The place is small but service was good. The server recommended an excellent wine and we enjoyed the Miami Spice offerings that they had for us.

I would definitely love to return and soon. There are other restaurants and activities to do at the district. I look forward to my return.

The service was amazing. Paula was very resourceful taking into consideration the challenges and limitations of the menu. The place is very quite. We had the place to ourselves. I don’t understand how a restaurant can have items in a menu and then not have them available. Change the menu!

Place was empty, so that service was very good. Like the decor. However I'm not impressed with food. When they brought the fish dish, I smelled fishiness, which indicate the fish was not fresh, not a good sign.
I may go back to have a impossible burger, however I can not recommend.

for a top restaurant for argentinian beef, the churasco was tough and unchewable.

When we got to Casa Faena my reservation was not registered and unfortunately they close at 10 (my reservation time) so we had to look for another place to have dinner.


This is not casa faena’s responsibility but open table.

The place is beautiful, amazing decor, the menu is great. I went for Sunday brunch, the coffee was really good and the huevos rancheros were delicious. The service is kinda weird, you walk in and there is no host so you don’t know what do the server just look at you like you are dumb lol

Overall it was good... but... we don’t like empty places... and this one was! We were the only ones there... food was good, place is beautifully decorated but we wouldn’t go back since I’ve read other reviews and it seems it’s always to quiet... not even a little music!

We were celebrating my friend’s birthday. They did not make her feel special in any way, didn’t even had a candle. We went out to buy her a small cake and sign happy birthday outside the restaurant.

Service wasn’t great. No one was around to tell us where to sit or welcome us. We were a table of 4 adults. There were only 3 other tables seated in the place and it took 25 minutes to get us 2 glasses of wine. Another 10 more minutes for appetizers and entrees came out nearly 35 minutes after we ordered. The portion sizes were pretty ridiculous for the appetizers on the Miami Spice menu and the piña colada dessert’s custard was grainy and unappetizing. Not a place I would recommend or come back to.

I'm very picky when it comes to food, and let me tell you it was AMAZING!! The service was outstanding they make you feel welcome. I had a great experience since the moment the doorman opened the door everyone was smiling, I believe it was the manager came to greet us, he was very nice guy with a awesome actitud. I'm into cocktails are amazing... definitely is a place to go and it's in my fav places in Miami Beach...

Many items on menu were not available. Food was mediocre at best. In one case chef sent something different as had ran out of what had been ordered. And an empanada was undercooked (cold in the middle). This is separate from faena hotel, a neglected side operation.

Went last Sunday for Brunch with the whole family and we had a great time, food was delicious, service was great and the cherry on top was the live music. Would definitely recommend to anyone for Brunch or their daily happy hour!

We have eaten at Casa Faena several times and always enjoy it. The food we have had - the fish of the day, pork tacos, the parillada, the kale salad, a burger, fries (totally fabulous) - has all been delicious. The service is warm and attentive. And the space is charming. Prices are reasonable. What more could you want?

Food was sub-par, especially for a place run by the Faena group. Service took forever and they messed up our order several times, messed up our bill and never did we get an apology.

A friend and I visited Casa Faena for Sunday brunch. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and comfortable. It gets noisy, but as we ate early conversation was easy. We had a mix up with our drink order, but not a major issue. My eggs were a bit overcooked, but all in all a very nice brunch.

Is this even a restaurant? Im not sure why you would list it for dinner. I went there and there was no host, only a nice but desinterested “concierge” who said it was first come forst serve and that no rsvp was needed and that I could sit outisde and a bar tender who said i should wait for the waiter who never showed up at tje table we showed ourselves to. Cant comment on food or seevice cause I couldnt get either. List it maybe for breakfasts only... but im not going back to check how that is.

Went for Miami Spice lunch. Place is small, casual but was basically empty at 1PM- only 3 tables occupied. And this was another restaurant that did not provide the Spice menu initially- we had to ask for it. Choices were good- crudo was good as was empanadas but it was tiny. The corvina entree was good- decent sized portion and very good salad/dressing. They didn't have flan for dessert but offered us Cerner brûlée which was probably better. A good deal for the money but even their regular lunch menu was very reasonable with a large selection. The only negative was the lack of other people (which may be a positive to some). If you are looking for the glitz of Faena house and it's restaurants, this isn't it, but if you want a nice small casual quiet place for lunch, it is.

I took my fiancé for brunch and I regret it. Service was lacking, mimosas were inconsistent (when the server bothered to refill our unlimited mimosas), and the food lacked seasoning. The food was extremely bland, everything we ordered was tasteless.

Casa Faena was part of Miami Spice and my boyfriend and I wanted to try a new restaurant and by far this restaurant deserves all 5 stars from the style of decor, service, food and drinks; perfection. Found a new restaurant; I'll be returning back.
