Had a great experience! Good food and ambiance.
Ate on a Tuesday night, so it wasn’t too busy. The food was good, with average portion sizes and came out fast. Service was very slow.
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!
HAD an event at local gallery so decided to dine nearby
The food was excellent
Grilled octopus with sundried tomato pesto sauce was excellent, tiradotos, ceviche, grilled chicken over whipped potatoes and asparagus was soo good we ordered two!!
Sat at high top
Fun excellent choice
Will be back!
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.
The grilled octopus appetizer was great. The ceviche was awesome.
On this, my third occasion at this restaurant, I was unfortunately disappointed in both the food quality and service level. No wonder it was so empty.
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.
Nice environment. Average, over-priced food. Food was very.... meh. Nothing special. My wife and I were both dissatisfied. No reason to come back when there are so many other options in the area.
We went to celebrate NYE and it was great. The drinks were delicious and the food was so flavorful. Will definitely be back.
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.
Nice ambient and excellent food. A beautiful place for a date or celebration
Excellent for any occasion, great food, service and bar.... Will definitely be back soon
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
Our server was extremely nice and attentive.
Great service !
The service was really nice we took for appetizers two plates octopus and ceviche both were terrific and then I chose a lamb for dinner and my date took a salmon both plates were really awesome. I will recommend also I did for some close friends.
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.
Amazing service. Took my friends to try the place. They loved it! Will continue to dine here. Delicious food.
Great and healthy food.
Great place!! Loved the live music and the food
Mixed seafood ceviche, grilled octopus, and seafood fried rice were the high points. Limited but fun cocktail menu. Open, modern setting without pretention, in a vibrant neighborhood.
Fun Restaurant in Wynwood close to the "walls." They offer valet parking and a friendly greeting when we arrived. Great seating choices; outside, inside at the bar, hightops and regular tables. They offer some creative cocktails and the food was excellent. Service was attentive and friendly. We will definitely go back, GKB is a great value and a fun restaurant.
The ambiance was great, and the area is a lot of fun. The food was excellent except for the octopus. It was a little burnt and overcooked. Also, the portions sizes were a bit too large. Positive note - great for leftovers or late nite snacks :).
Staff was very friendly and the food was delicious.
Absolutely delightful. Nice waiters and very cosy place.
delicious and unique taste combinations, based on Peruvian background with Japanese influence, and lots of selections for fish and vegetables, with enough meat to keep the carnivores happy. Service was excellent and atmosphere fun in an attractive and hip Wynwood setting.
Food was not good at all. We wanted to try the miami spice menu fish was bland risotto was watery. The only tasty item was the beef “tacos”. There was zero love in their cooking. Too bad it looked good on paper!
The ceviche had an incredible amount of seafood; however, it wasn't as tender as I would have wanted. The corn nuts and white corn were excellent additions. Our taquitos were crunchy and full of wonderful roasted pork and cheese. I was skeptical of the poached yellow tail snapper. But it wasn't warranted at all. The fish perfectly flaked and was inset inside a light broth speckled with fresh poached tomatoes. I was greeted by an excellent portion of well-braised short ribs. Despite being a bit over salted and a little dry, they definitely had a delicious rich flavor only achieved by a long slow cook. The side of pea risotto was creative and was a perfect accompaniment. The desserts weren't impressive. The only options were mouses that could be improved with having a crunchy texture. But you can't go wrong with the nutella flavor. The lima redemption cocktail was more strawberry focused than expected and the chicha piso sour was too intense with the holiday flavors (e.g., cinnamon and nutmeg). However, both cocktails were beautifully and carefully crafted.
Service was attentive and the atmosphere was okay. Almost every item relied too much on onions - everything was stuffed, layered, or scattered with onions - but they were easy to pick out or remove. Overall, I was very impressed by the portions and flavor at GKB. I hope they improve the desserts, but this place is totally worth it and a superb Miami Spice deal.
Great food. Great drinks. Would definitely go back!!
Was there for a business lunch and was not thinking much about food. Excellent lunch. We will definitely return.
Booked reservations and when we arrived they were closed. No notification and we weren’t able to find anything to eat afterwards but by that time everything else was closing
