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.

We have gone various times. It’s always been excellent in food, service and price. I was a bit disappointed this time when we ordered the oso bucco with risottos. While the oso bucco was excellent in both taste and size, I could hardly taste the rissoto. The portion was about the size of a tablespoon. My friend who also ordered the same food said the same thing. Otherwise everything else was excellent.

This was our first time visiting Costa Med and Key Biscayne. Would highly recommend this restaurant. We had the mussels and tuna tartare appetizer, the short ribs and clam linguine and all of it was amazing. Service was excellent! We hope to be back one day!

Amazing! Food and service was exceptional. Staff was attentive and polite. Drinks were served right away. Appetizers came next and they actually waited until we were done with our appetizer before giving us our main dish. Not very many restaurants do that!! We are making this a go to restaurant when we head back.

Second time here and did not disappoint! I had the special of the day and my grandma the scallops I had the first time which are delish. Will come back for sure to try other dishes. I’ve been getting bored lately of Brickell restaurants so this was a good find.

The restaurant was recommended as a “great place to eat”. We went to dinner to celebrate a special occasion and notated this in the reservation but this was not acknowledged while dining, which is fine. I ordered the filet mignon and asked that it be prepared “medium”, the first time the steak arrived, it was still purple on the inside, so barley “rare”, I sent it back and it came back a minute later, “rare”. I sent it back a second time, (something I have never needed to do anywhere else, at any time) this time it was prepared correctly. My son’s pasta was “gummy” and overcooked. This was possibly one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. We had two appetizers, 4 entrees, no dessert and two glasses of house wine and the check came to over $250.00. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to my worst enemy. To say that we were greatly disappointed would be a gross understatement. Please don’t waste your money or time at this overrated establishment I may add that I have been in the hospitality industry for 30 years and I have only reviewed a restaurant this poorly one other time in all these years.

Very awkward experience. Servers seemed very confused and all over the place. All communication between the staff was done on walkie talkies. Food was mediocre at best.
