This place never disappoints. Hands down, this is the most outstanding restaurant in Miami.

From start to finish, the overall experience they provide is one to remember. The crowd is STUNNING, the food is outstanding and the service is phenomenal.

Every single dish was full of flavor and plated so well. The lamb spare ribs were succulent and falling off the bone. The yellowtail sashimi was the best I have ever had. The honey truffle salmon was phenomenal. Out of all 10 dishes ordered, every course was better than the one before it.

5 STARS ACROSS THE BOARD!

Reservations at 9:30. Didn't get seated until after 10;30 and only after manger was called in relationship to a bartender using the F word try to get me to move from spot across from the bar where he wanted his friends to eat. I advised him I would be going as soon as we were seated. Management tried to make up with an appetizer and dessert but incident almost overshadowed a good evening. Service and food were good once seated but one hour is too late with reservations.

My waiter was clearly instructed on my celiac/gluten intolerance, yet the dessert he selected for me contained gluten. As I was literally eating my desert, the waiter urgently ran up to my table and grabbed the plate off my table and stated that he had made a mistake. Unfortunately, I had already eaten part of the dessert and was sick later in the night. The manager did not come to my table at anytime to apologize and I was charged full price for the dessert, which was ultimate replaced. I feel the food was decent, but the portions were small and very expensive for what we received. I would never go back to this Restaurant. Very disappointed.

Fantastic food and drink. Duck tacos and wagu dumplings also crab lo mein were favorites. Steak entree was a disappointment.

We were seated in a back corner near the elevator. Horrible location with many other options. Not sure what happened there.

La dinámica para la asignación de mesa no es la mejor, reserve para 14 personas y dejé mi tarjeta de crédito para asegurar la reservación cuando llegue estábamos 12 personas y la Hostess dijo que no podíamos pasar hasta contarnos a los 14 ya tenían la garantía de mi tarjeta y aún así esperamos casi 30 min para que nos dieran la mesa, los meseros mal servicio no podían con una mesa tan grande
Lástima porque la comida es buena pero el servicio deja mucho que desear

Amazing food (hot food, sushi rolls, sashimi were all fantastic), nice ambiance, and delicious cocktails here at Komodo. Doesn't get too much better than this place. Even their vegetarian roll tastes really good (Komodo roll), and I usually dislike vegetarian rolls.

All the cocktails I've tried on their were out of this world as well. Highly recommended to come with friends, for business, just for the heck of it!

We had all sorts of issues with the timing of our food coming out and each time we raised the issue the server ran away like a baby. Never once did they apologize or try to make it right. They figured, gratuity is included so who cares.

Went for a birthday and while the waitress was amazing - everything else about the experience was terrible. The food came out in odd waves (2 dishes within 5 minutes of ordering and then 1/2 hour until the other “appetizers”). We ultimately didn’t even get a chance to try all the food we ordered as 1.5 hours in and food we ordered at the start of the meal didn’t even come.

Overall, very overrated experience with a terrible management of food out of the kitchen

This is not a restaurant— it’s a club that serves food. We were seated AN HOUR past our reservation time, and that was only because a member of our party was very persistent. The food was good, and the management was apologetic (offering free apps and desserts) but overall I wouldn’t go back as it was overpriced, overcrowded and too loud to have a conversation!
