Our meal was amazing!! Our waiter explained the dishes to a T and each one was better than the one before, do yourself a favor and just order the tuna pizza and the sea bass. It will change your life.

Took a client here for entertainment dinner. We were seated very quickly but there was a significant delay in being acknowledged by a server after we were seated. Once we had a server, the service was terrific although he seemed a bit rushed and/or overwhelmed. He was terrific in proactively asking if we wanted to move due to a downpour that was splashing a bit of mist on us. The food was very good although not amazing in my opinion based on other fine dining experiences in this price range. Steak was ordered medium rare but was much closer to medium. This is Miami and the over-all trend seems to be that service can be a tad less than what you'd see in non-tourist centric areas. Over-all it was ok and probably wouldn't return.

A childhood friend and I decided to dine at Leynia for dinner a few weeks back. I have dined here several times in the past, mostly for lunch or breakfast, but once for dinner. That previous dinner was nice but not spectacular. We chose Leynia this time due to bad weather and the proximity of the Delano to our apartment. The empanadas (we ordered two types) were really not good. Way too much dough and the filling was only okay. I had a salad for my meal and there was far too much dressing on it. I don’t remember what my friend ordered but she liked it okay - not great. The service was off as well. We started out with one guy but then there were two others involved and we finally had to ask for the check as it seemed it would never come otherwise. I like the location and will definitely return for breakfast of lunch, but with all of the fabulous restaurants in MB I will not return to Leynia for dinner.

Been here before and it has always been decent even tough overpriced. But great ambiance. This time, service was slow, they were out of orange juice... Not sure how that happens in a large hotel with a bar. Fod was OK.

The food was amazing the busboys were mediocre. For example they would take your plates without asking assuming we were done with our appetizers. Since the gratuity is already included in the bill the waiters seem to have less motivation to work. Although they were kind they didn’t seem to follow up nor were they quick on taking our orders. But given what I said the service provided is a lot better than most restaurants that are close by.

Drinks - cocktails and dinner wine arrived after main course.

Sides arrived 10 minutes before mains and had to be sent back to re heat. Filet steak medium was well done and two filet servings were massively different in size.

When mains did arrive sides were then late.

Waitress was inattentive and did not respond well to feedback. Had to speak to manager. After complaining was given discount on dinner but was not a good dining experience. Manager blamed the problems on high number of diners but equally busy competitors on south beach manage to give good food and excellent service compared to this restaurant so was a poor excuse.

We have been regulars at LEYNIA since it opened We really did not enjoy our experience this time. The service was terrible. The food quality was still good though. The service staff was poor and our waitress had a bad attitude. When you pay top dollar for a special meal, the service has to be top. We will not be returning to LEYNIA. When the restaurant opened the staff was excellent. Now they are the B team. Poor staffing decisions get you this rating

My wife LOVED her dish, just wished there was more of it - mushroom tortellini. I had an enjoyable lamb shank. Lively (yet not to lively atmosphere).

A group of 8 of us recently met here for brunch/lunch. The location can’t be beat. The Delano is beautiful and sitting outside looking over the lawn with the pool in the background is very enjoyable. The food was good - 4 out of 5. Not spectacular but good. (Better value and ambience for lunch/brunch than dinner, IMO.). We had a leisurely lunch, which we all enjoyed, including two kids aged 11 and 13. I would recommend giving a try for a daytime meal.

Imaginative and well constructed dishes. Everything we had was firing on all cylinders. Baked crab hand roll, Brussels sprouts, lamb pappardelle, crispy salmon, filet mignon, roasted potatoes with aioli... wow! Loved it. Great atmosphere-indoor/outdoor breezy and cozy! Service was perfect, too. Don’t miss this restaurant when you’re in Miami.

Special occasion and treated to a not so special evening. The restaurant contacted me numerous times about confirming the reservation. I repeatedly asked for a comfortable table for 5 and we were place in an odd corner that made service very difficult. Then we were told they don’t make any special table arrangements?? If not, they shouldn’t pester all day about showing up. We arrived an hour early for dinner. Told the hostess that we were there and we’d have drinks and they should call us when our table was ready. No effort to notify us, found out by asking. Will the food ranks as okay to very good, the hotel bar vs restaurant bar appear to exist on two different planet. A dirty martini in the bar was delicious. At the table???? Could not identify the flavor. The bribe seemed to be bad. Wine list is 4x retail yet service was so intermittent it really was difficult to find any continuity in the meal. The grilled lamb was perfect. The steak not so much. I blame two things for a bland evening. Terrible table layout on the terrace made it impossible for out primary waiter to reach us. Management that didn’t seem to care how the diners were being taken care of if the other serious flaw. $1000 dinner should leave you with a feeling of elation. This place fails to deliver a warm welcome feeling. NOT recommended.

We were placed on a table in a very cold and windy place. The table was booked several weeks in advance. Freezing, we had to ask for blankets. The staff should have replaced us, but didn’t before we almost left. New table indoor, the staff forgot our wine (cancelled the wine when the food was finished), they did several mixup with the order and never asked if everything was ok. We really didn’t feel very welcome.

You really expect more from an expensive restaurant than what we experienced. There is plenty of better options in the area with better service, better food and the most important, friendly atmosphere.
