I had been to GKB before and really enjoyed it but today everything was off. Almost with no people at the restaurant yet our service was mediocre, the food was bad and overly fried, and the drinks worst than ok.
I hope they pick it up.

Horrible service. Took over 30 minutes for drinks. Mains took over an hour. Not much done by staff to apologize or even try to compensate which was shocking. Really unfortunate because food was advertising decent but when you have bad service it ruins the experience of anything.

Happy Hour (including a variety of appetizers and sushi) extends to 7:30pm, 7 nights a week, so GK Bistronomie is a great choice for relatively low cost early evening noshing. The food itself is pretty good, but not especially memorable. We were dining ahead of an 8pm show at the Light Box, so this was a perfect fit. OTH, wouldn’t have come here as a sole destination as there are better (but more costly) dining options in the neighborhood. But a great spot for Happy Hour.

Interesting and creative menu. The octopus appetizer had a very good taste, but it was a little over cooked and chewy. Tiradito was excellent!

Visiting Miami from New Orleans. Loved the restaurant. Was there early evening, so quiet, and happened to be Happy Hour, so prices were GREAT! Loved the unique food choices that fit my healthy food wishes.

Also, loved the surroundings, great art, clean lines of design, very nice service staff.
Will definitey recommend to others I know and I would definitely dine there again at a later hour on another occasion!

Thank you!

Where to start...we arrived early for our reservation and were shown to a cramped table in the back which required rubbing yourself on your neighbor’s table to access. Then the waiting game began. 20 mins to have a harried server come by and drop off menus...another 15 to actually order food and drinks...10 mins more to get a beer delivered (45 mins after arriving). Food started trickling in and entrees arrived over 90 mins after we sat. Totally unacceptable. But on the bright side we had a bachelor party of 20 drunken idiots next to us to deafen us with their inane and crude conversation. Yay!

How was the food after all this? Ok to mediocre. This is a “Peruvian restaurant” and the $15 seafood ceviche was embarrassingly bland, inconsistently cooked (rubber for shrimp and undercooked fish) and dry. The pork tacos were good as was the crab causa. The lomo (when it finally arrived) was passable but we couldn’t get a spoon (!) to even get what little sauce was put on the plate. Meanwhile my date was getting rammed into by the wrestling frat boys next to us. Truly memorable. Another Wynwood overhyped nothing.

Bathrooms constantly had lines and were disgusting once you got in.

In short, avoid at all costs and only send your worst enemies....

Food was just ok. Service was incredibly slow, but I think it was an understaffing issue and not lack of effort. My friend and I were there for 45 min before we even got our drinks. We were also seated by the restrooms and were crowded by the line of people waiting for the restrooms. Ironically there were pieces of toilet paper on the floor of the restaurant, but no toilet paper or paper towel in the restroom.

The food was great & creative, and the portions were well-sized. However something must have been going on in that restaurant because the service was NOT great. The wrong appetizer came out and it took nearly 20 minutes to get the right one. The entrees took forever to come out, and when they did the waiters kept on forgetting side dishes. Our main waiter was not apologetic for what was happening. Given the high ratings this restaurant has it must have been an off day and I am willing to chalk it up to that given that the food and cocktails were so good.

Food was excellent and offered a good variety for appetizers and entrees. Service was pretty bad though - our server perhaps had too many tables to wait on. We didn’t get half of a dish until we checked back the menu for it and it took forever to place an order too.

Everything was amazing besides the steak. Ordered the steak Medium and received it borderline raw/bloody/chewy. And it was flavorless / bland.

This place needs a new chef and overhaul. It is an amazing location. The place was empty on Saturday night with all other restaurants close by booming. We gave it a chance anyway but it was awful.

A good experience overall but not as memorable as I had hoped. We had popped into GKB earlier in the week for a snack and were impressed with the food and decided to return. We made a booking but this wasn’t registered when we arrived (despite us saying to the waiter; the restaurant was pretty empty so I guess they weren’t worried about a reservation). We were sat at high tables despite reserving to be sat in the seated area of the restaurant (where there was room). The waiter was not very knowledgeable - could not help us with the wine and didn’t offer to find someone who could. The food however was very tasty - we enjoyed ceviche, taquitos, gnocchi and sushi. All presented nicely and very flavoursome. The quiet atmosphere and lack of real service made it a good rather than great experience so wouldn’t rush back.

We were very impressed with the food here on our second time at this restaurant. We arrived during happy hour, as we were trying to get home to watch a playoff game at 8:15, so we took advantage, ordering a few appetizers and drinks. The ceviche was superb, beet and feta salad excellent, calamari light and not oily. But the entrees were standouts, all four of them off the menu: lamb shank, pork chop, sea bass and snapper. Portions were fine, not overwhelming. the flavors were terrific. At 6 pm we chose seats in the back, where it was quieter, but as we left by almost 8, the place was full and quite noisy. But there was a festival in Wynwood that day and the neighborhood was as busy as I've ever seen it.

We were looking for a unique dinning experience. The food was ok not great. The atmosphere was good. Service was great.
Food was bland with nothing special. This restaurant was listed under the Foodies section and was far from what I would call a foodie restaurant.
The location in Wynwood was the best part! Lots of shops and things to see.

We went there for the NYE and ordered the NYE's menu. We were disappointed 1st with the champagne (not GH mumm as written in the flyer but nappa mumm) we had the 2nd plate before the 1st starter. We didn't have time to finish the plate that the other one was on the table. It was not a good experience for us. Maybe more for tapas or happy hours.

Amazing menu freshly prepared. Ceviches some of the best ever tasted. Grilled octopus was cooked to perfection and very tender. The gnocchi with mushrooms and truffle oil was a hit at the table. One person got to enjoy a pork sandwich. Save room for the churros with dulce leche and chocolate sauces. Loved this place

The menu is limited and very pricey for the quality of the food. I had the “sudado” fish but it lacked flavor and fish was not very fresh.
The restaurant has potential but the food quality has to improve if they are going to charge $24-$38 for entrees. I would not come back.
