The menu was really overwhelming and some of the flavors did not mix well. The filet was meant to be served medium and came out rare. The service for drinks was extremely slow, and while our server was very knowledgeable, we were not impressed with the experience as a whole.

Good food, good vibe, pretty decor, our waiter was very pushy though about getting us drinks and getting our orders to the point I said "sorry I'm trying to enjoy dinner with my friend please let us do so, I will let you know when we are ready to order more food"

I dined at Chotto Matte in London. It has been there for 5 years. It is a place for younger people, hippy and fun loving. Foods were OK.
This Miami place is the same, good and fun place for the young people. Foods are mediocre drinks also though there are interesting cocktails offered. Ambience is good or great depending on one’s taste. I, myself, don’t go there.

We loved the food, the ambiance, and we'll definitely go back soon. In the Japanese/Peruvian fusion category, we love the unique spin this restaurant gives to its dishes. The service was remarkable, and they paid attention to details, which made my husband's 50th birthday even more special. Highly recommend this place for groups or a romantic dinner.

I would recommend this place for lunch because they cannot handle the capacity for dinner. Waited 40 minutes for the first round of drinks. Then another 40 for the second round of drinks which came out one by one and then one was missing and the other was totally incorrect. Food is way overpriced. Would never waste my time again.

Our server took it up on himself to decide the quantity of our dishes we ordered . At the end of the night the runners team was bringing us 2-3 of the same dishes which was very weird . We asked our server why we are getting something we didn’t order and he said he decided to order that for us . So instead of us trying more different dishes we were brought more of the same stuff without our knowledge . That is absolutely unacceptable and almost ruined our experience even though the food was excellent . When we asked for the manager our server just ignored us . Likely the meneger walked by and we got a chance to express our issue . Not sure if we want to be back at this point . Such shame ..

Try the Nikkei Tasting Menu, every course was outstanding. Beautiful weekend crowd, but service was awful. This is not a quick-in, quick-out event. If you do select the tasting menu, you will get some dishes right on top of each other, and then be subjected to looong waits for the next flurry of activity.

Long wait for first drink, too. An alcoholic can turn sober by the time they get their first drink.

The restaurant is beautiful for starters. It has such a nice ambiance, the interior design of the place is absolutely outstanding. The staff was very accommodating; managers and servers, but the hostesses were a little bitter honestly speaking? Not necessarily rude, but they were not very welcoming or friendly. We brought 5 small balloons to celebrate a birthday and they would not let us have Them at our table which was honestly a little ridiculous. But nonetheless our experience was great! The food was some of the best food we’ve ever had. The portions are small, but it is a sharing concept which makes sense. The menu is pricey, but every dish is honestly a work of art. The server was very sweet and knowledgeable, she explained the entire menu thoroughly and made excellent recomendations. However, we were only served water once the entire two hours we were there which is not okay. Also a plate was brought to our table which we politely let her know we hadn’t ordered, and she was a bit pushy and insisted a couple of times that we had, which was a little frustrating. I think service could definitely improve here and there but overall it was a lovely experience and we will definitely be coming back!

The food and ambiance is great, but the service is so poor it makes the entire experience of dining here not worth it. Our waiters were terrible. I have a food allergy and I had to call the manager as waiter refused to serve me anything else other than the miami spice menu because the restaurant rule is that if one orders miami spice menu also the other party have to order the same. I go to a restaurant to enjoy and have fun not to fight. Horrible experience. Such a famous restaurant should hire professional people, there is no excuse for this type rudeness.

We had the Miami Spice menu. If there is 2 people both people must order the spice Menu. It is a little misleading. You get everything on the menu but you must share the food. So if you are really hungry you will leave hungry. Also there is only 8 sushi Rolls for 2 people to share, and they are not large. In my opinion there should be 8 each. My husband left hungry. The sushi is very good. The rib beef was a little fatty.

Food is delicious. Atmosphere is amazing. Everyone is kind but the service is slow. We waited 30 mins just to get a menu. Half way through dinner we needed something and no servers were on the floor for 30 mins to give us water. This is the second time it has happened to us. It’s a shame because the food is amazing but the service is so poor that we may not go back.

The place was empty and it still took 20 minutes to get our first round of drinks. Food was great, service - typical Lincoln road style- not attentive, we were confused about a lot of menu items. Food was delicious but we will keep dining in Brickel and Wynwood. Pisco sours were really bad. La Mar is a way better choice
