Love the cuisine. Branzino is magnificent. The burger is off the hook. Service is very nice but they are understaffed for sure. Could do with a couple of more servers. Will come back.

This is our go to restaurant for a special meal and over the years it never disappoints. Standouts in the apps category include the ceviche and the octopus, which is so tender you can cut it with a fork. Their pastas are extraordinary, and their ravioli and risotto are especially noteworthy. But their fish and meats, including a churrasco and branzino both perfectly prepared, were also awesome. Make this your go-to place.

Good food. Beer and wine only. Greek salad and mezze platter is fantastic. Chicken was just ok. Skirt steak was okay. Linguine and clams was yummy. Salmon had a few bones but was otherwise tasty. French friend were delish! Service was lovely. We would go back!

The service is excellent. Our only issue was they would not do take out the next night, said they were to busy. We called at 5:06, 6 minutes after they opened. Not sure how it was to busy. We called the next night, same thing. Not very good business

Dear Ms AnaS Thank you for the feedback and the rating. About your comments on take out service, at times we have the need to suspend the service during very busy shifts as is the case during the holidays; reason: our small Kitchen can't keep up with the demand! The restaurant opens at 6 pm, nowhere do we state that opening time is 5 pm, nor do we advertise Take Out/Delivery service! Please understand that we do this in order to improve our restaurant service, which you qualified as "Excellent"

Once again we went with my family to this amazing Gem in the middle of key Biscayne, in my opinion the best restaurant of Miami!

The quality of the food, the top in class service and the place environment are just perfect! I feel like home every time I go and after having the privilege of tasted almost all the menu, I can certainly say all of it is the top of the top!!!

Can’t wait to return! :)

La terraza de este local no vale la pena, está demasiado cerca del parking, no tiene decoración, es todo como muy frio.

El mejor restaurante de Key Biscayne
Recomiendo el carpaccio di manzo, ravioles pera y gorgonzola, el risoto del día espectacular. Souflé de Nutella buenísimo
Además un excelente servicio

Amazing experience for our 30th Anniversary dinner. Costa Med was recommended by our hotel, by that I mean everyone from the pool service to the front desk and the concierge could not say enough great things. My wife and I we’re not disappointed and the owner and staff went above and beyond to make sure our dinner and experience exceeded our expectations.

Just go…you will not regret the decision. Sit outside, have the specials and pick a great bottle of wine.

The food was excellent. Everyone in our
party enjoyed each appetizer and their entree. I would give 5 stars if not for feeling watched the entire meal by our server and 2 other employees. It was strange and uncomfortable. Other than that it’s a great place to eat.

Food was great. Service was excellent. Maybe better on weekend…but atmosphere was slow. It was a Monday night though.

Responded on October 16, 2021

Thanks for visiting and for your review! Definitely, this is the slowest time of the year and for sure at 6:30 on a late Monday afternoon while the sun still out, outdoor dining will be slower than desired; nonetheless, we are happy that you enjoyed our food and service. We certainly do appreciate you taking your valuable time to share your experience of dining with us and we look forward to serving you again in the near future. Kind regards, Costa Med Team
