You can’t beat the location but the menu was so tiny we couldn’t read it, we had to ask the waiter if we could order drinks then saw them sitting on bar for 10 minutes. The table next to us had to flag him down too. Thinking they might have been short staffed? None of our food came out at same time so a little awkward. My daughter never even got her side which the waiter told her well you probably didn’t want it anyway and took it off our bill. Overall for the price we expected more.

I had a lovely lunch at Etaru and was slightly disappointed of the limited options available on the menu. I was very surprised that pizza was listed with a long variety of options. Not very authentically Japanese. I would say the restaurant is more of a fusion cuisine. I would return to try their brunch. Very pricey for the serving portions.

I would recommend trying the Sunday brunch! The best part of the experience is the ocean view/location.

What a gem! I've been for dinner but this time we did their fabulous Happy Hour for the second week in a row. Us ladies had the pinot grigio and it was delicious at $6 a glass! It was refreshing, with notes of apple, and the price can't be beat. Our other friend had a couple old fashioned's which he said were good, too. Last time I went for the sake which was decent, if you're down for sake. To eat we munched on the Japanese fried chicken and edamame. Nothing too special, but easy and yummy. Service was impeccable. We will definitely be back!

We love the location of this restaurant. It's getting rarer and rarer to find a restaurant down in South Florida with an ocean view. BUT the food is absolutely terrible. I don't know if they changed their menu because of Corona but it's a very limited menu. I ordered a salad and since it has GARLIC salad dressing and I'm allergic to garlic, I asked for anything else. Not only did they not have another dressing choice but they didnt even have a balsamic vinegar (or any other option). What restaurant has no other dressing but a garlic one?! Ok then we ordered the fatty tuna. It was horrible tasting. Not sure about the quality there but it was inedible. Honestly, you just don't go there for the food. You go there because of the great ocean view and during Corona it's nice to be outside but for us, it's not worth it to go there for bad food.

I was so disappointed. Used to love it, but last 2 visits have been awful. Went Saturday night, had a 6PM reservation, sat down ordered wine, and was enjoying view, looking over menu,, when manager came to table at around 6:20 and told us we had to hurry up and order dinner because we only the table until 8PM. Ridiculous! We left as we did did not feel like being rushed. Won't be going back

I was pleasantly surprised with the experience. Given its location and beach front view, I expected an over the top menu along with the prices. Menu is straightforward but not limited in variety. I had fatty/medium tuna and salmon sushi that was on point and affordable. I also had the skirt steak and special dish black cod. Delicious.

This place has the most beautiful view in the Miami area. The food was really delicious but the service was a bit rushed. They didn’t even offer dessert. We will definitely come back. The food and views are definitely worth five stars.

I experienced a perfect birthday dinner with a socially distanced seaside table. We chose the tasting menu with the wine/saki tasting. We were not disappointed every dish was a delicious work of art. The dessert was a masterpiece
It was a lot of food, but our Intuitive server made sure each dish was well timed for our enjoyment. We will be returning soon

I went with my friend for the birthday dinner.
This desert platter on the photo was amazing ! Coconut ice cream with passion fruit filling was delicious.
Chief tasting platter was a great choice for dinner , it was more items than we expected , even more that me could eat ))

Tip: call to book directly , ask for outdoor terrace table . No specials from the restaurant for the birthdays unfortunately.

It didn’t taste good.

The place is good only to get a drink and enjoy the ocean view.

Lunch service was lacking, which is understandable due to CoVid. I definitely would’ve ordered more food and drinks if the waitress would’ve been more attentive, as she only had two tables. I understand that everyone is stressed and servers are probably doing many jobs in the restaurant but the overall experience was still subpar.
