La comida no estuvo tan buena he comido mejor comida mexicana el plato principal llegó entre frío y un poco tibio y el postre parece que hubo contaminación cruzada porque huele a pescado

This what I would call a Mexican Food 2.0 experience in the best possible way. We choose for the 4-cources Diez y Seis menu from the chef. Without exception all that was served tasted very good. We had tuna tartare with taco’s, fresh salad, lobster with guacamole, marinated snapper, delicious octopus, magical Rabo de toro in a sauce based on chocolate and more.
A bit hidden in the Miami jungle of hotels and noisy restaurant this place is worth to choose for. Nothing to improve then? Well, perhaps they could have told us more about the food and preparation. But the food speaks for itself.

Service was fine but not great considering we were there just after they opened and most the tables were empty. We had to flag him down to fill our water and he didn’t check in much. We sat outside which we were not aware was overlooking the hotel pool which I wasn’t much of a fan of. Food was very good and prices were as to be expected for the area. Overall just fine, nothing very memorable.

The food is not real mexican food
& prices are to high for all the stuff.

And on terrace are a lots of moskitos
which make the whole really stressful.

I don’t know why all the people rate that
restaurant so high. In my opinion it’s not
under the 20 best in sobe!

I love the lively feel of this place – almost like being in front of the beach with friends. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Mother’s Day buffet had a lot of options (meat, sea food, Mediterranean, Mexican) and servers were very accommodating for our kids, bringing alternate dishes. The mimosas drinks 🍸 were enjoyed and praised by all of the adults. Service was well-timed, friendly.

The service was horrible! One of our guests didn’t get her soup at all. It took a very long time for anyone to even take out order and then very little interaction after. The worst part, was that there was a clump oh hair in our salsa. Never going back! A shame because some of the food was really good.

There was a buffet that was not advertised on OpenTable, so the normal menu was not available. The food was good, but a limited selection. It was $35 per person. Restaurant also charged 18% automatic gratuity on our party of 4. Margarita was tiny and $16. It was $150 for lunch for 2 adults and 2 kids (4 & 1). Service was sparse and the restaurant initially marked us a no show on OpenTable. Spoke with the manager about it. He said that is just what their system does. Oh, the kitchen also set off the fire alarm while I was in the restroom, the rest of lunch the dining room was smoky.

Prices are wrong online, manager refused to give us the “published” prices. Bad customer service and not worth the $75 with tax and tip brunch price for the food. Sad that people in hospitality can still blame the customer for their mistake. Will not return and only stayed because we were starving upon arrival. Hoped the food would make up for the managers awful attitude but sadly didn’t either.
FYI, the google prices say it’s $25 for Vueve and $25 for brunch. It’s actually $35 for brunch and $25 for Chandon, bleh.

I usually never leave bad reviews but wow! This is my second time eating at diez y seiz and i came back since my first time around was not bad. Boy was i wrong. My second visit was just so bad. Our server Joshua was just not made to be a server. We had to beg for water refills we had to ask Each time we needed a new drink. We basically had to do his job for him. Terrible service and when the bill comes we then noticed why the service was horrible, tip included!! No wonder! Will never come back to this place.

Everything was very good, but it’s pricey. We were definitely convinced we needed far more food than we could actually eat. It was hard to pay $250 for a family of four. The corn is amazing, as is the cheese quesadilla. I would skip going if you have picky kids—not many options, and my vegetarian kid’s quesadilla had a piece of meat in it, so she refused to touch it after she found it.

Love food and ambiance. Very easy place to take children. Space fir strollers too. . Service good but they cannot seem to get food out in correct order. They bring it nice and hot, but appetizers arrive after main dish and side dish of delicious potatoes arrived early. Granted they did not charge for the corn that came very late but insisted we taste because is so delicious. I would still return but emphasize timing.

Our food was excellent! We had 3 kids with us, although they didn’t eat great, my husband and I did! They made a plain quesadilla for my son and my daughter enjoyed the skirt steak tacos. My 4 yr old loved the chips and salsa! The red velvet churros were amazing! Our waiter was attentive and personable! Great spot!

The food has potential some menu items were excellent such as the Cuban tacos and mushroom tacos.

The tuna tostada was horrible and came off as smoked tuna on a bagel chip.

The guacamole and salsa were average.

Service was okay but he kept us waiting for thirty minutes without food waiting for the check.

My husband & I enjoyed our dinner at Diez y Seis. The ambiance, service, and food were very good. Luis, our server, was especially helpful with the menu choices. We shared the guacamole and grilled octopus as starters. We then ordered two entrees—the duck enchiladas and chicken tamales. We would have been fine with just one entree, however. Luis also treated me to a lovely birthday dessert, even though I didn’t order dessert since I was so full! It’s not your typical Mexican restaurant, so don’t expect the usual basic fare. If you’re looking for a special Mexican experience, I recommend that you try Diez y Seis.

More Mimosas than Food
We were in the mood for some live music and good Mexican food so, we picked Diez Y seis for our Sunday brunch. Due to a mega pool party on the other side, the music was so loud so we couldn’t take advantage of the outdoor setting. Brunch was up to 4 PM however, by 2:30, there was no more oysters and very limited food options. As pescatarians, the only thing we could enjoy was the Ceviche (not Mexican) which was really fresh. The only other fish on the buffet menu was tasteless. Overall, food quality was poor. The only thing we could not complain about is the bottomless Mimosas and the Guacamole. We couldn’t even have a fish Taco. The only had a beef Taco.
I understand that several big music festivals including Ultra were going on that weekend but, our 1st time impression was below expectations.

You should tell people in advance that because of Ultra weekend there will be too much noise. Throughout lunch there was equipment testing at very high volumes

Such an enjoyable experience. The only reason I rated the noise level high is because of the concert going on outside. We had originally booked an outside table, and the staff was kind enough to call and warn me about the noise level outside, so we moved inside. Even with the noise that could be heard when doors to the deck opened, this was one of my favorite meals in Miami. We will definitely go back!
