My husband and I really enjoyed this spot. Great food and atmosphere. Everything I mean everything we had was good! I had the grilled szechuan steak omg mouth watering full of flavor, my husband had the salmon that was good too but a small 6oz portion but good don’t get me wrong. Definitely coming back for a birthday or something. Menu and atmosphere will not disappoint.

Amazing ! There was a line at check in but we were seated right away and had outstanding service! Anthony, our server made the best recommendations and the food came out immediately. Food is outstanding - highly recommend chilean sea bass skewer, ribs and their special roles. Great people watching - but noise level was not bad. 5 stars!

Food, service and ambience were great, however, we had a 9pm reservation and were not seated until 10:15pm or so (15 minute que line to get to the host, and then one hour to get our table).

We enjoyed our evening at Komodo but we won't hurry back. It was buzzy and fun and in the main, our food was lovely. However, our sea bass dish was overcooked and bland and one or two of our dishes had obviously been sitting too long before arriving at our table, so were not as warm as they should have been. Service was occasionally 'too cool for school' disdainful and then attentive, depending on who was serving you. A particular thank you to the servers in the bar who made us delicious cocktails.

Not Komodo's fault. Miami is overpriced and underperforming when it comes to restaurants.

Amazing place!! Please try the dragon roll and/or the crab noodles. Can’t go wrong. If on a date, watch out as noise level is high and may be difficult to talk if not next to your date. I would still recommend for taking a date there as the place is amazing and the music/ambiance is incredible.

Waited 45 minutes for our reservation. Once we sat it took 20 minutes to get a drink. Then 2 hours for our meal to arrive. When we asked to speak to the manager she was very dismissive and unaccommodating. The food is great but the service is terrible. Would not recommend to anyone I know.

Service was very good in person but terrible over the phone. We called to inform the restaurant that we were running 10 to 15 minutes late. I explained that we got delayed because of my newborn and that we were searching for parking. We also told them that some of our party is already waiting at the bar. They refused to hold our table and said they were booked solid. Once we arrived, a few minutes late, they were still able to seat us and were very accommodating. But the rush to arrive lest they give away our table while most of our party was already there and we were literally outside was unkind and unaccommodating to say the least.

We waited to be seated more than a hour ( we had reservations)
Food was good until we ordered a steak ( that cost about $225) we thought this is going to be something, but we could even eat it, so we didn’t - it smell bad.
Disappointed.

Food was great and so was the serving staff. The ambiance was just great and the music loud enough to enjoy it yet it didn’t overtake ones conversation...

This was my second time here at Komodo, the food was just as good as the first. However after being seated for about ten minutes and only having someone come by with water, I had to ask if a server was assigned to the table. My second issue was the waiter, so Komodo automatically adds 18% gratuity to the check, this is fine, however the waiter made sure to say that they share tips and that he would appreciate anything additional since that would be just to him.
This I found to be extremely tacky behavior, I have no issue tipping more generally, but if a restaurant decides for whatever reason to auto add the tip to the check, then generally they're giving everyone the same % at the end of the night and their staff shouldn't display greedy inappropriate behavior.

Die to traffic in the area we delayed by 15 mins and thus they made us wait more than 1 hr to be seated but, this is what they were asking to most, if not all customers...
Very disappointing considering the reputation and the prices of such a restaurant in Miami
I will definitely not go back as there are way better restaurants in 305 area.
Mr. Grootman, I suggest you train better your hostesses as they were too arrogant and snobbish, like they owned the place.
