Love this place! Mostly come for lunch as the menu seems more appeasing! The dinner menu seems a bit dull. I wish the dinner menu can be much better and include falafels and other dishes from the lunch! But otherwise great service and atmosphere. My kids love it as well. Great family spot for a lunch!

It was a Sunday brunch. The food was OK but the electronic music from a DJ was so loud that no one could talk. We asked the manager to bring the volume down, he asked the DJ who did it, but after the manager left he brought it even louder. My wife and I shouted at each other for a while but then ate in silence as it was impossible to have a meaningful conversation. A good place to go alone, or if you are deaf, or if you are going with someone you hate and you do not want to have a conversation with.

Very pleasently surprised by my 2lb (wouldn't bet on that being the actual weigh of the fish, but..) baked branzino. It was fresh and baked well but still juicy. I went for the healthy late night grub but the place was jumping with twenty year olds enjoying the Miami skyline over drinks and DJ.

Had a very nicely spaced out table indoors where we felt comfortable and safe. It was a birthday dinner and the service was stellar. Oysters and branzino were fresh and well prepared. I wasn't a big fan of the baklava as it was very crunchy and cinnamon overload - and I do typically love baklava. This was too much of a twist on a traditional baklava. Otherwise this is a great addition to aventura area and we will be returning.

We have eaten here before and the food was always delicious. We went last night again, ordered sea bream and sea bass. Both we thought were underwhelming. Both needed more flavor..

La comida excelente. No logre tomar un gin tonic decente. Baños un capítulo a parte. Increíble que un lugar de esta categoría tenga los baños en las asquerosas y pésimas condiciones en que estaba. Uno piensa siempre que el estado de limpieza de los baños es un fiel reflejo de lo que ocurre en el resto del restaurante?

Greeted with friendly reception when we arrived but then sat 20 minutes with nothing on the table without a waiter coming to table. Had to grab one of the waiters to get service. After that, the service was prompt and food excellent. Despite the initial service we will come back.

I come to this restaurant once a week for dinner.
Last time we came for lunch

As always the food was delicious, beautiful ambiance and professional but friendly service.

The surprise at lunch are many new items not on the dinner menu that sounded delicious.

Food was delicious but the service was HORRIBLE
Once we where seated, the waiter took at least 15 minutes to apear for the first time, appetizers took at least another 30 minutes, he never refilled our glasses with water and wine, it took forever for him to pick un the dirty plates, not a nice experience
Very sad because the food was really nice

This was my fourth time in the past two weeks.
Food didn’t arrive for over 40 min.
Asked the waiter several times and was told it’s coming. Just when I was about to leave it came with no apologies.
Manager never approached us, even though it was obvious our table is unhappy. He was busy seating and pampering a table next to us, and completely ignored what was going on.
I love Michael Mina, I liked Ornos at lunch, but will take some time to go back.
