We had seen Diez y Seiz on a number of lists and chose to come here for Valentine's Day, which ended up being a huge regret.

Some background, we love Latin/Mexican food of all sorts. From 5-star Mexican fine dining to cheap hole in the wall places.

One issue was with the service. The waiter failed to explain the shared concept of the restaurant or to accurately describe their valentine's prix fixe menu. We passed on it simply because it was not clear what it included. We ordered off the regular menu differently than if we knew everything including the entrees were meant to be split.

All of this could have been overcome if the food was great or even good, but it was not. Nearly every dish was a miss. The empanadas were great, but then everything went downhill.

Chiles Salsa: Bland. Desperately needed some salt to bring out the flavors. It basically tasted like someone had soaked some unroasted guajillo chiles in water, pureed them and tossed the puree in a salsa bowl.

Lobster Aquachile: I make and have eaten plenty of ceviches and aquachiles. This dish was simply poorly executed. It was clearly made many hours or the day before. The lobster was far past over cooked by the citrus and had become dense and rubbery.

Duck Confit Enchiladas: These tasted great, but if we were out for Italian food. Nothing in the dish had a Mexican flavor profile. The taste would best be described as duck lasagna.

"Smoked" Chicken: This entree was just all around horrible. Highly charred to the point many parts were inedible. There was really no flavor to the dish. There was a sparse amount of achiote flavor juice in the bottom of the bowl that helped a little, but beyond that it just tasted like char.

There are plenty of great Latin American and Mexican restaurants in South Beach. Give this one a pass.

They advertise a menu with Mexican brunch ($25.00) and additional unlimited veuve Clicquot for $20.00 or unlimited Bloody Mary ($14.00), when we arrived there, brunch was $35, no veuve Clicquot but some cheap Prosecco for $25.00 and now each Bloody Mary $14.00. Food was ok, but the bait and switch was not of good taste....

It was my birthday- it took 20 minutes to get someone’s attention to order a drink when no other parties were there. Then it took 30 minutes for them to bring me 1 glass of champagne. I was really looking forward to this and the service was disappointing :(

i originally went to Diez y Seis because it was rated one of the best Brunches in Miami. However I found out when i got there that their web site says Saturday Brunch is available when it isn't. Despite this mishap I really ended up loving the lunch I had. The place is very nice quick service and the food was delicious. I would recommend this to any foodie whether you live in Miami or not.

The food and service were spectacular! It’s a little hard to find the restaurant (it’s in the back of the Shore Club Hotel). Enter through the lobby and head back and to the left. What a gem of a place. Keith was our server and was so personable. Everything we ate was so delicious! It’s a must visit if you are in South Beach.

The food here was amazing. A nice variety of healthy and flavorful options. The hostess was great very informative. Our server was a little distracted, we had to flag her down times for refills and condiments. I was not pleased with the advance gratuity of 18% as the service didn't warrant that percentage. It's almost as if the servers are allowed to give poor quality service because they know the 18% is mandatory. Overall I was impressed with our decision to choose this restaurant despite the level of service!

Some of the small plates are quite small for the price, and in particular the fish tacos are disappointing. The 'main' dishes for dinner are actually quite large and good value - the duck enchiladas are out of this world. For two people would recommend doing a guac dip to start with and maybe another small plate but then get two of the mains for dinner. Cocktails are inventive, potent and fun.

The food and drinks were outstanding. The ambiance and the service were excellent. However, this was a very expensive restaurant for the amount of food that they serve. The chips and guacamole were $14 and they serve a very small amount for a large table. The margaritas were excellent but pricy ($16.00). The tacos were sublime but tiny for $14.00. Overall, we ended up paying $375.00 for 5 people and left the restaurant hungry. I would ONLY recommend it for an anniversary.

We arrived and our table wasn’t ready so we have to wait around 30 min. The food took quite long to arrive too and then started coming all together. They charge for kids but there where no kids menu. So the kids didn’t eat, the food was spicy, so not suitable for kids. But they charged.
The staff was kind and friendly.

Great experience, setting, and food. Pricey but worth it, given the quality and ambience. A few issues with the kitchen - a bit slow and got 2 things wrong. But more than made up for by comping a delayed item and extra drink, etc. Would most definitely recommend and return.

Took a long time for a server to approach... food was not worth the price at all. Do not order fish tacos. They should be on the kids menu. It is literally 2 fish sticks on a mini tortilla. It is 100% not worth 17 dollars. That and the other food was also very small. The fondue is just a bunch of burnt cheese stuck to the walls of a huge vessel. It was gone in 3 bites. Unacceptable to charge those prices.

Our meal here was OK, not the experience we were expecting based on the trip advisor level of ratings. Food was good, the best thing we ate was the roasted corn (Elotes). We’ve been to a number of different “high end” Mexican restaurants in other locations that were much better.

Service from our waiter was below average. The nicest person was the table-runner, he seemed to care about our dining experience. As with most hotels, service charge was included in the bill. This is why I think restaurant service is generally lacking in Miami Beach.

Fabulous brunch with truly unlimited champagne-the waiter even asked if I would like another refill before he closed out my check when I asked for it! Great selection of food, really good Mexican (including custom guac cart), omelette station, seafood (including oysters), patisserie and meats, fresh fruits and great dessert selection. Seemed like everything was being refilled regularly as well-I was there from 11.30am until after 1pm. Highly recommend for a leisurely, luxurious brunch.

Good food, furniture is sort of that outdoor metal furniture you expect at a dinner or cheaper place with outdoor seating. That sort of cheapens the atmosphere for a relatively (not too) expensive of a meal. If they get the setting upgraded I would give it another star
