Beautiful restaurant but the Miami spice menu is horrible, small dishes and doesn’t compare to the main menu, I don’t recommend this restaurant for a Miami spice experience, if u want to go there, order something from the main menu similar to the Miami spice price

We came always because of the food and the DJ, today the food came a little bit cold. And was not great as usual.
The dj is the best, e love every single minute, we hope have the same Dj on the night club or other restaurant of the group. He is amazing, unfortunately little faraway for the tables, but his music is perfect! We really enjoy every song. Next Saturday we will be there again and also my friends that had the table close to us( 8 pax ) love it too.
Today was everything about the music , perfect and incredible. Congratulations.

For an upscale restaurant, I was rather disappointed in the food. We were a party of three and most the food we ordered was extremely salty , we had to send back a few plates. I really expected a better experience being that it’s so pricey.

Went to try this place for the Miami Spice, not the service expected from a high end restaurant like Komodo. Food wasn’t tasteful and everything on the menu is overpriced for the quality provided. Not going back!!!

We had a table for three on a Wednesday night. The hostess with round glasses and blond hair was very rude. I had a reservation for outside and she said “i know you requested outside but I don’t have anything outside.” So I waited for her to give me an alternative and when she didn’t I said “Okay?” Then she responded “Is that going to be a problem?” with attitude. It was very offensive, especially being the first person I speak to in the venue. This set the tone for the remainder of our experience. Our server seemed to have been over sat and was in the weeds but was very nice. We were greeted after 10 minutes being sat and placed all of our Miami spice and drink orders at one time. The food was delicious! But I don’t think we’ll be back. Too pricey, unorganized service, lackluster experience overall.

The food is not at all what you expect to get from a restaurant with so much noise about it. It came out cold! The Krispy calamari salad is not krispy as it’s mixed in the salad so you are getting wet fried calamari in a salty salad. The beef and chicken are below ok... PJ Chang’s or Wholefoods has better food. The food came out room temperature like it was prepared in a Shaffer and sitting there.... I don’t think they have a chef.... maybe a line cook or someone platting throwing the cold food on a plate... it’s a shame!!! They really need to change something otherwise I don’t see why anyone would pay more then $10.00 to eat there... even as Miami spice that is cheap o felt I could have gone anywhere else and eaten better.

Great atmosphere. The service is good, and the food is good too. The prices are a little over the top for what you get, but the atmosphere and ambiance makes up for the expensive prices— at any moment in time you feel like you could see a celebrity walk in.

We had reservations and yet they had us wait for an hour standing by the bar.we had a couple of drinks by the bar which were about 20$ each. They kept saying 10 more mins which led to an hour wait. Then when they finally came they asked us to close our bar tab which kind of upset me.. I waited an hour even though I had reservations and now your rushing me to close my bar tab ..at that point I asked to speak to a manger.. I explained the situation to him and he didn’t offer any accommodation so I suggested that he comp the bar tab which he did..idk it was just very chaotic. Food was good server was good to. You should take care of guest accordingly and not over book. Left a bad taste.

While the food is good the service is always bad. First, they will never honour the reservation time. Every time we have booked with them they make us wait at the bar (standing as there are never enough seats for all the people that are obviously waiting for their table.) I am not sure if this is a policy so that they can increase the bar consumption or it is just bad management of the table schedule. Also our food comes in whatever order they decide for example edamame came after first course, the side dish of the second course came 10 min prior to second course therefore we had to eat separately in order not to get cold and we had to eat dessert separately as they brought mine after my husband had finished his.

Not a very good experience. Food was brought to the table at various times. Issues with a dish with a foreign item. When the bill was received and the issue was reported , the dish in question was still on the bill.
Expecting a different dinner experience, specially at the price point.

The food was tasty but nothing overly special. I’ve had better and I’ve had worse but at the price point I expected a bit more.

The service was just off. Party of six, we were sat around 8PM for our reservation and it was past 11PM when dinner finally was over, too long between courses and the food was thrown in the middle of the table for everyone to decide who’s dish was who’s. Just a bit odd approach.

Ambience was overall a good vibe but they keep it entirely too dark on the second floor area. While I had no trouble at least one person from every table had their cell phone out using it as extra light to read the menu so that should tell them something.

Restaurant was lovely. Music was great. Food was good
But I wish the server would’ve suggest adding a side, I didn’t realize I ordered just steak and it didn’t come with anything. I went to the restroom, upon exiting the stall there was a woman peeing in the sink. The bathroom attendant will attest. It was disgusting what that girl did.

Great Miami spice menu especially for the prices! Service was good not to personable but that’s the style here! There servers all have more than 5 plus tables but everyone does a great job to get you what you need or maintain what you have. Gratuity is included keep an eye out for that. Overall great value and great ambiance

It was a great location, food was great. Server Josh was great, but it was noted the event was a birthday /anniversary in the open table application. That was never mentioned during the visit. I believe either opentable dropped the ball, or the hostess did not relay it to the server . Other than that the food was great, pairings were explained well.
