Excellent all around! Service was very friendly and polite. The food was great. We had the lobster thermador. It’s intended to feed up to 3 people. Might have overestimated on that, but it was decadent and definitely filling. Drinks were great too. Lots of choices. The caipirinhas was the best we have had in Miami.

This was the first time my husband and I visited this amazing restaurant with great people that work there. Sydney our waitress was remarkable with her attentiveness and knowledge of the meals and wine and the establishment altogether. Please give this wonderful lady a raise and bonus. The staff that worked with her were wonderful and attentive as well, I am sorry I did not get their names. The environment was nice, cozy and inviting. I can go on and on about how wonderful Coco Bambu is. We are definitely coming back and telling friends and family about this phenomenal restaurant in South Beach.

Awesome food, very authentic and shows a bit of the rich culinary from North East of Brazil. Service needs improvement, everyone is very nice but we had to ask for bread several times until we got it and the place was far from full therefore no excuses.

My husband and I celebrated out 1yr Wedding Anniversary at Coco Bamboo and it was great. The food is delicious and the drinks are amazing. Our waitress Jackie was super friendly and brought us a free anniversary dessert. We will definitely go back to Coco on our next visit to Miami.

We were disapointed.
The first dish - calamari in tartar sauce was very good, but..
main dish - for 2 - fish and shrimps - the fish was tasteless' the shripms were with a lot of fish sauce that i didn'nt like - big dish but not fine...

The desert - flan - was not the "real" flan we know very good from south America - lot of gelatin.

Will not come back.

Sorry.

The food was bland, uninspired and extremely overpriced. The shrimp I had tasted like plastic and seemed like it was frozen; the server kept recommending the most expensive items on the menu (no kidding, from food to wines, she would just go for the most expensive of all, completely shameless). In the end, everything I tried was mediocre at best, and depressing overall.

Amateur hour. Friendly but disorganized. Shrimp tasted previously frozen and over cooked. More of a family place than a date place. Overpriced for what you get. Would not recommend and I’m pretty forgiving .

Excellent food. Do not be intimated if you think the prices are high, the portions are huge. We were 4 and ordered the Shrimp coco Bambu for 4, everyone ate until satisfied and we took home food for another 2. The service was very efficient and the place is real nice.

Appeared to be a newly opened restaurant that was nicely done out over two floors allowing for many dinners. Shame that when we visited there was hardly anyone there. Live music from a couple that tried hard to lift a dull cold Resteraunt but didn’t succeed. The food was average as well.

Great reviews for this place and it was good but not great. It’s huge and was almost empty at 7.30 and didn’t get much busier. The food was good and the waiter was very helpful and caring as we were looking for gluten free options. Unfortunately the wine was not chilled. Great promise but didn’t quite live up to the hype.

Amazing selection of small plates; entrees for one; and plates to share with 2 or 3 friends...clever way to arrange the menu. There is something for "everyone" on the menu. Good cocktails but a weak selection of wines by the glass. Our waitress was most helpful helping us sort through the menu-we wanted to try too many things!

Need to improve the bar service . Drinks , regular soda and tap water , took more than 20 minutes to get on the table . This is the main problem there : always the service is “ regular “ or not good . Needs urgent improvement! Looks like no one has a boss there . Someone has to be a líder and make sure the service gets better soon .

It’s our third experience in this place and we will always come back when in Miami! The food is amazing and the service very friendly! We’ve tried different dishes and everything is delicious but we particularly recomend the fish stew, the crab meat appetizer, the stone crab, and the frozen coconut caipirinha... and... I’ve almost forgot... the baked cocada for desert!

Great decoration , so so food. I ordered shrimps moqueca and it came with 3 fresh shrimps and a bunch of tasteless frozen ones. A high class restaurant shouldn’t deal with cheap frozen seafood.

We were very disappointed with this restaurant!
The reviews had been great and we were looking forward to a delicious meal.
It tasted like all the food was purchased at Costco, with no creative influence whatsoever!
