Unfortunately not a good place to dine. Too expensive and it lacks for quality food and wine. The waiter we had was nice though.

We arrived at 10:30pm for a reservation at 11pm but had to wait till 11:20 - 11:30 to be seated after asking the Hostess a few times when our table would be ready. But when we were finally seated we were greeted by an energetic server who took our order. We ordered the Peking duck which never fails to amaze as well as the King crab lo mein, Korean fried chicken and dim sum. The drinks are superb and strong enough to make you want to go to the club after.
Overall a wonderful dining experience beside the long wait time.

My husband and i went for our 25th wedding anniversary on Wednesday. It was my first real dinner in 6 months out as i am recovering from cancer and have been unable to eat solid foods. I had been looking forward all week to enjoying dessert. The meal was good but i was so disappointed that the restaurant had just that day removed the Bananas in a Box dessert from their menu. This was our favorite dessert going back to the China Grill days. I hope they return it to the menu. Wait service and manager was great.

From the moment we entered we were greeted and treated well. The staff did a great job in assisting our request of having a corner booth which was special. Food was outstanding! The duck is honestly the best I’ve had.

Komodo is a beautiful and sexy restaurant. Dress to impress! Hostess/host were very nice and efficient, sat us at a nice table, server was knowledgeable and made recommendations, we went for the shrimp dumplings, they were good, standard. Crackling calamari salad is one of my personal favorites, although this time it had too much radicchio which gives it more of a bitter taste, nonetheless still good. Ordered the Peking duck to share and wow it was amazing, not gamey and skin was perfectly crispy, I would definitely order it again, only downside is it took almost an hour! But it was a busy saturday night, luckily ambiance and music was good. I definitely recommend.

We had a reservation for 9:30 and waited for an hour to be seated. After requesting in the app to sit inside they wanted to seat us outside. When we arrived they said we would be seated “shortly”. An hour is not shortly. We didn’t eat until almost 11pm. Awful experience that day.

Terrible. They dident respect our reservation and they ask us to wait for a table. The host was really rude. We left after 45 min of waiting the table. One hour and a half after was book our reservation they send me a text message SMS telling me that my table was ready.

I went here for dinner to celebrate my birthday with my husband. The design of the restaurant is beautiful and the DJ was amazing. Everything our waiter suggested we ordered and it was delicious, so we’re our cocktails. We had the Wagyu beef dumplings, the sea bass, chicken fried rice and a salmon sashimi roll. I wish we had this restaurant back in LA!

I have been coming to Komodo since their soft opening. The food has remained consistent. The service was always fantastic but has gotten even better!!! Dave Grutman makes it an experience. Seamless with the staff. I will always come here every single time I come to Miami and will continue to refer everyone. Komodo is a must eat and experience.

Went to Komodo for lunch and wanted everything on the menu! We ended up getting sticky ribs and Grutman Pastrami Egg Rolls. I also got a Hamachi Hand Roll.

After having the Waygu Pasteami at Papi Steak, we had to get the Grutman Pastrami Egg Rolls with a dijon mustard dipping sauce.. Absolutely delicious! The sticky ribs were big and meaty, very filling.

The Hamachi Hand Roll was amazingly fresh and just fantastic.

Our server Talia was fun, professional, and very knowledgeable about the menu. Very, very good!

Will definitely return for lunch again as well as go for dinner!

It was my friend Adrian’s birthday and I wrote a message on my reservation about it. They didn’t do anything and I saw soo many people getting this beautiful dessert for their birthdays. I waited until the end and I asked the manager and he just said oh I am so sorry we forgot. He just gave me his business card and told me that they will make right next time. What should I do wait another year and take my friend again there 😂🤣 I DONT THINK SO!
