IMPORTANT: if you try to go during happy hour, it will be LOUD. Too loud. The DJ uses a system that is way too loud for the room. Conversation is not possible. The irony was not lost on me that the wait staff wasn’t able to hear me when I said we couldn’t stay because of the overwhelming volume.

I get “happy hour” and the desire for music. Just... for goodness sake keep it at a reasonable level.

Have they not noticed that there are very few patrons during happy hour when all of the other places around are busy?

Instead, try Joey’s across the street. Excellent food, excellent service, and music at a level comfortable for conversation.

Seriously. Turn it down.

The look of the restaurant is industrial and modern, very attractive. The music is too loud, but that’s kind of the norm for the area. But where it lacks is the quality of the food. The appetizers were ok at the most. The entrees were disappointing in quality and taste. We ordered the Peruvian salad and it was very bland, any supermarket bag salad is more flavorful, also ordered the shrimp low main, ingredients were swimming in soy sauce, therefore the flavor was rather strong and salty... big disappointment.

Possibly one of the worst experiences in a restaurant, ever. Eight of us for dinner on a Tuesday. Minimal service until time to order; water was filled and refilled only when glasses were empty and we asked for more. When our food arrived (in bits and pieces), the ceviche was off-color, off in texture and tasted bad -- had to spit it out. We asked for the manager to report the issue. He came over and seemed irritated at the complaint. He whisked the plate off the table (at least one of them, three of us had ordered it) and offered zero apology or accommodation. Never saw him again. I ordered a salad instead and waited over 30 minutes for it to arrive, and by then everyone else was done eating. Adding insult to injury, the salad was fully dressed despite having specifically asked -- twice -- for the dressing to be on the side. No manager or owner (who we were told was also the chef) ever stopped by our table to offer any sort of apology or accommodation. It was clear the management of this restaurant could have cared less about our dining experience. We will never go back to this restaurant. Just a miserable dining experience all around.

Restaurant can be lots of fun, but food, which can be mediocre is a little over priced wiping out any sense of value. Our service person was one of the restaurant's biggest assets.

I would have given it more stars as food and service was good, but for the fact that when we checked in they were neglectful in checking us off on open table and instead made us a no show which can have you kicked off the site. I had to spend time calling them and emailing them and open table to get my points.
This took time away from my work which was not appreciated as I did say when i walked in I made reservation on open table. Chairs were a bit uncomfortable as they were metal in front whereas in back room were padded chairs. Food was good and service as well good. Come dressed down as most people came that way.

Lunch party for 6 people. We sat outside in the courtyard. Our good looking, charming and professional server Jose was terrific. One of our party had just lost her wallet. José personally made her a Mojito that helped erase her concerns. The tapas were good imaginative and varied. Highly recommended.

It was really bad. I haven’t see hostess and management like that in any restaurant. Hostess was so rude! She even did not bother herself to move! And show us a table and the menu. She was doing a favor to us!

75% of the dining had music that was at club level volume and would of been impossible to enjoy a meal and conversation. ( we understand it was Art Basel, but there are plenty of dance clubs, and parties, Im all for restaurants having, DJ's and music, but think of your guests, they may want to talk to each other with out shouting. After some table moving, to get away for the constant line up at the bath room, server showed up, late, and asked " what do you want" in a annoyed hurried tone, Not a way to greet a table. Food was good, and only redeeming aspect. Their credit machine then said 2 of our cards failed, and they asked us for another form of payment. Calling the bank, and looking online showed , we were charged and bank confirmed that it was a permanent charge, not failed, not canceled, and if we paid with another card we would be paying twice. Staff offered no explanation, and didn't return to the table. We left.

We visited for happy hour. The cocktails were cheap and decent. We liked the chilcano mango, the margarita, and the passion sour. But the old fashioned was one of the best I've had. The taquitos and the ahi amarillo are delicious though they are very small portions. The calamari, antichucos, and the ceviche are really good and decent portions. We also liked the spicy tuna. We weren't super impressed by the yucca fries or steamed bun. In all, it was a delicious and affordable happy hour in Miami, perhaps one of the best. Our only complaint is that at 5:30 the DJ had the music full blast in a nearly empty restaurant and it was difficult to communicate with the servers and our guests.

We went to celebrate a special occasion with the fam. It was a group of 6 and the GKB team was on it. We requested a space to fit 6 tall, large people, they delivered; the server was energetic and kept in mind the reason for the celebration and catered to that. We were so happy with his attention and service. We ordered the pork taquitos, grilled octopus, steak anticuchos as appetizers (yum!!!!). As main course, we ordered the fish "sudado", quinoa encrusted salmon, lomo saltado, ceviche, pork chops and half chicken. Everything was delicious and everyone had something good to say.

We suggest to order the classic pisco sour, passion fruit pisco sour, queen Mayra, those were our favorite craft drinks.

Surprisingly our Server also named Daniel gave us a great tour of the menu as a way to inform us about the items worth checking out based on the experience the house wanted to bring , we went for the pork tacos which where fantastic as an appetizer ... we also went for the miami Spice Menu which was a great selection I have the Foie Gea empanadas and also the Flounder which was a great presentation ... not only that but they offer a special price discount on the Knights Valley Cab ... which Daniel was right on when it came to the description ....
If you are looking for a cock tail I suggest something like a Peruvian margarita which we had a couple of and the pisco sour !!

Kind of disappointing experience at this restaurant which used to be one of my favorites in Wynwood. Tuna tiradito fish quality not so good. Tuna tartare OK. Beet salad meh. Slow service and inside the restaurant during our lunch there were a ton of fruit flies divebombing us and our wine glasses. And to make matters worse they were using loud noisy drills in the bar area for some construction during the lunch hour.

We got 3 meals and the 4th person waited over 40 minutes for his sandwich. It came when we were all finished eating. They apologized but that was the extent of it. We didn't feel like sending it back or arguing at that point. Seemed like the kitchen was backed up but there were only 3 other tables with people, the place was empty. Not eager about returning, but the food was pretty good so I wouldn't not go back either.
