Overall very good thanksgiving dinner plate. Server forgot to serve our appetizer - more focused on serving the turkey which came out 15 minutes after we sat down. Somewhat rushed meal but great ambience.

I love this place for the ambiance - the decor, the vibe, the atmosphere but I have now had two disappointing experiences with the food. The first time the grilled octopus had an unexpected fishy taste, and this time around the chicken smelled and had a terrible taste. Both were inedible. The staff was very gracious about it, and it’s unfortunate when this happens but I am unsure I will be frequenting again.

Way over priced for small portions and mediocre food.
Ambiance not worth the price.
Milos much better value and portions
And a forced 21% service charge to top it all off!

While the food was very good and the setting picturesque the constant smell of diesel fuel was a show stopper.

Kiki on The River
Responded on October 30, 2019

We apologize for the diesel smell as it is out of our control being on the river and having space so boats can dock. Typically it is not strong enough to disrupt guest experience. Hope to have you back and we appreciate the feedback :)

This place is basically a bar with a full menu. You eat literally on the dance floor with a music that is so loud you can’t even talk. They could at least have an eating area with a lower music background. The food is Ok. Overall experience was not good for my party.

I've been here several times over the last few years.. The food is always very tasty, and the three course lunch is a good choice! Lots of food, beautiful afternoon sitting outside on the Miami River.. But the service was not good at all.. We had to ask for bread, long after we ordered lunch.. And then we had to ask for water several times. They weren't friendly at all, nor did they care about taking care of of us! We were the only table with our waiter, but he couldn't care less. Then the restaurant actually added the gratuity! That was nerve! Overall, lunch was nice enough because of the food and the views of the river, but the attitude would keep me from returning.

While visiting Miami on a girl’s trip we visited Kiki on a recommendation. Upon arrival, we were impressed. DJ’d music, fun location and crowd. We started with cocktails and thought that we would take our time and enjoy the evening. Kiki’s has other plans. We were rushed through ordering and told if we didn’t order everything an once, we would have a significant wait because the kitchen was busy. We were coerced into ordering a $175 fish “for the table” We attempted to order some apps and sides, but were told “we didn’t need that”. Everything came out within 10 min. We ordered wine and dessert. We had to track down one of our 3 waiters with every request. Our glasses were empty most of the meal. We tried to order a round of shots and were told “you don’t need those”. We were by no means drunk or belligerent. We were spending money and not just drinking water and having salad. We found them offensive and rude and felt age discriminated against. Not ok since our final bill was $752.

Kiki on The River
Responded on August 28, 2019

We apologize your experience was poor, thank you for taking the time to review. The fish is market price but never that pricy, please send me your receipt. It seems that our standard of service was far below par, we are looking into this.

Valet parking 20 $ ce prix est inadmissible

Kiki on The River
Responded on August 28, 2019

We apologize you are unhappy with the valet rate, unfortunately we do not control that cost because it's a third party. But will relay information to Valet, that is weekend rate, weekly rate is typically less.

This is one of my new favorite places. I couldn't believe this existed in Miami. The riverfront restaurants used to be pretty low-end, but this place is swanky and kitschy and really cool! Super decorations, which apparently change frequently. Which means, not cheap. They offer a $1500 bottle of wine?? Cheapest one was $75. And you have to pay for valet, and the ATM only dispenses $100 bills, with a $6.95 charge. Take cash! And that service charge at the end? Not really sure I believe the waiter when he said it was for something other than a shared tip. We tipped on top of that, but next time, I think we'll know better. Never heard of that anywhere in Miami. But overall, worth it for a special occasion.
