    The restaurant was great. Music was way too loud, only way to hear the person next to you is to yell and raise your voice. The food was great but definitely over priced.

    Wanted to like it here, but the service was severely lacking. If it was due to servers being over extended, that’s unfortunate, but not my fault. Doesn’t matter if the food was good or not under these circumstances. Too bad.

    Save yourself a lot of money and go someplace else to eat! The ambiance was beautiful, the service was attentive although my order was wrong and my server wasn’t even aware that my requests weren’t met. I went for Brunch and ordered the house omelet and the menu actually says can be made with egg whites. It was either egg beaters or eggs because it was yellow. My omelet was supposed to be vegetables and the only vegetable was onions as far as I could see. There is not one vegetable on the menu! The food was barely warm but the worse part was the portions. OMG!! The omelet was 2 inches by 6 inches and maybe was made with 2 eggs and a plate full of potatoes but cost over $25. My appetizer was 3 tiny tortillas with one shrimp on top of each and was probably $20 as well. I don’t normally scrutinize the prices but based on what the total was it had to have been that much. My guest also had a typical Colombian breakfast that was also cold and could likely feed a child sufficiently. We aren’t talking about exotic ingredients, but eggs, rice and beans! Missing Soyka! This place can’t last. It’s obvious from the stored suitcases by the hostess desk that it’s a beautiful place to go when you’re on your way out of Miami and you just want a last fruity cocktail on your way to the airport and don’t mind spending a pretty dollar while on your vacation.

    Great setting and ambiance. The guacamole was very good. The chlcken waffle enjoyable. The tumeric ginger tonic was amazing but they ran out of it and we were one of the first tables served for the day! Other than that, everything else (egg dishes on brunch menu) and service was just OK.

    Apps and dinner was delicious. Small portions for the price. The ribs were amazing. The churros are overrated don’t get them. They’re not even warm and they’re dry. Although the food is good it’s overpriced.

    Outstanding, as always. I hadn't been back in more than three months. But the entire service staff-- valet, hostess, bar and table servers-- all welcomed me like I was Norm Peterson. The oysters a la Chalaca are extraordinary. The pork porchetta, likewise. An almost impossible choice between it and the braised short rib. And Dave hooked me up with a stellar Washington state Rhone blend perfect for my meal. I flew solo on Saturday night but CHICA treated me like I brought in a party of 20. That is huge to me. One day, Chef Lorena and I will be there at the same time! (She was at F1 qualifying at Joe Robbie Stadium.)

    Came for cinco de mayo. Wasnt as lively as I expected. Maybe it was just the wrong time. The ambiance was great though. Servers weren't too knowledgeable of the specials that they ran. The DJ was ok. Would come again though. Try the ribs and the pineapple house marg. Very good.

    I love the food and ambience at Chica!! Delicious flavors always!! The ambience is perfect!! However, last night was the first time where the service was just very mediocre at best. Maybe because it was a Sunday…I don’t know. But the service was a disappointment. We will still be back. But I sincerely hope that aspect of the dining experience is improved.
