We ordered an appetizer that you would need bread with but we were told the bread is $4.00. We agreed but to pay that amount for 4 thin slices of burnt bread, it was a bit much.
The Argentinian meat was ok, nothing memorable.
Came home smelling of the smoke from the grills going on.

Tuna pizetta is a must. The poke is also amazing. Food is a bit pricey but worth it.

Something to note: 18% tip is already included in your bill. Would have given 5 stars overall but our waitress didn’t inform us of this so when the final bill came back with our credit card, we tipped another 20% on top of the total bill. We’re not used to this in NYC and with this being the first restaurant we dined at on our vacation, we didn’t even think to check the tax/service charge at the bottom.

Incredible!! I have been coming to the Delano for the ambience and the vibe for years but never had a chance to eat here!! Everything from the service to the atmosphere to the food was absolutely incredible!! We arrived early for drinks outside and had dinner outside - then more drinks with friends! The octopus and eggplant dishes were divine - the beignets ended a perfect meal! It’s a must for when you are in South Beach!

The food was cold and dry the service was terrible. Just trying to pay the bill was difficult - they over charged. I had managers come to fix invoice multiple times I went with five adults two kids and it cost me $550
I wouldn’t recommend this place. They’ll never see me again

Very cool SoBe Vibe. A little hot for sitting outside, but decent fans. Food was above average though not spectacular. Drinks were good. A lot of waitstaff although overall inefficient. Definitely had enough positives to try a second time.

Some of the food was good, some of it was extremely disappointing or not prepared as they described.

Gave us 1 menu for a table of 4 people.. for a $500 dinner, you’d think they could afford to print off more menus

Waiter & bussers were not with it at all, no tact, no common sense, very disappointing.

My boyfriend and I, with two friends went for Miami Spice lunch it was a beautiful day to be outside they have plenty of fans so you aren’t dying of heat which is appreciated in Miami. Also the food is excellent !!!! I had a Waygu beef burger and empanada it was so good. I will forsure come back

We sat outside where it was hot.Where is the hostess to turn on the fans overhead and she was unable to do that or didn’t try. Also there was somebody smoking not far from us who also have a dog. Not my favorite things while eating lunch. However the food was excellent as was the service. We ate at on the Miami spice menu so the price was good

Nice dinner with friends. Dined early. Not very busy. Wait staff had some issues timing food. Portions small but was all delicious. What is the deal with playing club music at all these restaurants. Completely disrupts ambiance!

Sommelier was kind and helpful. Brussels sprouts were too greasy but steaks and sushi were super tasty. Expensive specialty cocktails (but that’s just south beach). This boutique hotel is a great visit and more upscale than many rowdy Miami Beach neighbors.

There are pros and cons to this Argentine grill. Pros: The food is good, and the service provided by David was excellent: he was cordial, prompt and attentive, paying attention to my frustration with issues I detail below and telling me that for months they have been bringing them up to management. Cons: 1. The terrace where you sit can be uncomfortably hot in a Miami Summer night, and there are no discrete and unobtrusive fans to mitigate the heat; 2. The lighting is very poor, so it is very difficult to read the menu or your food --you can use the light of your phone to read the menu but try peeling a bone with fork and knife while holding the phone; 3. In lieu of candles, there are oil lamps on the tables that produce fumes that ruin the smell and taste of the food --and if you push away the lamps you cannot see what you are eating; 4. The main-course dishes are the size of dessert dishes, which makes it uncomfortable to cut your meat and have a side order on the same plate --you have to eat the side order from the serving plate; 5. Being an Argentine restaurant, it's baffling that bread is not the facto brought to the table with the first dish, but rather that you have to ask for it and on top be charged for it; 6. A typical Argentine dessert never missing in any restaurant of Buenos Aires, crepes with dulce de leche, did not appear in the menu; and finally 7. a complaint I have for most upscale restaurantes in the US, as Leynia purports to be, there are no tablecloths on the tables, a less than hygienic attention.
