The decor is lovely. Much like the Grand Central Oyster Bar in NYC. Darya our server and Adam were very personable. We explained that my husband has a medical condition that disallows any peppery spices. Upon ordering and being reassured there was no pepper, the crab cake was so peppery it caused a negative reaction after one bite. They took it off the bill, but the damage was done. The rest of the dinner was nice, but difficult to enjoy. We did not want compensation, we wanted to enjoy a meal safely. At the end of the meal we ordered sorbet and I felt I had to fall over my plate to keep the busser from taking it three times. We dine out at fine establishments all over the country and this was disappointing.

We had a great time last night, service was on point and over the top amazing, food was delicious and ambiance was gorgeous!! We were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant made a point to acknowledge it with a delicious creme brulee! Would highly recommend for a special occasion.

Food and service was excellent! The dishes were presented beautifully. Our waiter very helpful and attentive. The prices were reasonable for the seafood we ordered.
Only recommendation is to clarify the menu with the specials & the cost!

I was eating lobster. I eat about half, and then I went to restroom.When I returned, I found that the dish still containing almost half a lobster had been taken away. But you don't take a plate off the table without asking for permission !!! Even more so if there is food still inside

I was looking forward to eating here, it was highly recommended.

We were one of 5/6 tables total
In the place and the atmosphere despite its beauty was dead. Our server Tom was amazing.

My son and his friend 21+ had a nice bottle of wine and I had a cocktail. Unfortunately each pour of wine was done by us at the table, not by one member of the service staff offered or paid any attention.

We had a great opportunity to catch up and talk amongst ourselves though. My son had the tuna tartare with caviar and it was outstanding and very flavorful. I had a Caesar salad and it was great. The men had Branzino and I had a lobster. There fish was outstanding- my 3# lobster was supposed to be steamed and cracked. It was split and mostly undercooked and near raw. I was severely disappointed at $40/#. We split hash brown tater tots and while we had a lovely night, the food was merely average.

I would indulge and invest elsewhere for the enormous price tag

Unfortunately when we arrived the table wasn’t available and we had to wait 30 mins to be seated at the bar. I must say that the staff tried to do everything possible to remedy it, they were all very kind, the food was excellent and in the end they offered us the dinner to correct the mistake. I would like to come back again on a more peaceful evening than NYE in order to have a better experience and give a full evaluation, because, as I said, food and staff were great.

Excellent food. 4-lb lobster cooked to perfection; we asked for female with the insides intact and we got that. Grilled octopus tasty. Salads tasty too. Not crazy about the desserts though but I’d happily go back.

An amazing and wonderful experience. We were originally skeptical of the name & when we arrived at 5:45 and there were only 2 couples dinimg. Isreal was our waiter and he did the best job of waiting on us that we have had in 50 years of dining. He was very informative and gave an excellent review of the menu. We started the meal with a superb marinated octopus dish & crab cake for appetizers. Appetizers were followed by main courses of Chilean sea bass, Icelandic Char, lobster Risotto , and a Surf & Turf dinner. All were bursting with outstanding flavors & textures. Definitely on the top of our list of fantastic Miami places to eat.

Superb food, superior service! This is one of my favorite places to dine in Miami even though there are a TON of exceptional restaurants. The angry lobster app is a must! I always get the king crab legs... just a personal favorite but everything on the menu is delicious. Service is polished, professional but not stuffy in the least bit. The ambiance is lavish but still cozy. Great wine list and cocktail list too! One of the best places around.

Have been here many times before. Greeted by name and seated immediately. Managers came to the table to say hello. Very nice ambiance and the best service. Tried 3 course dinners from the special holiday menu - Chilean sea bass with chopped salad first and profiteroles for dessert - and shared the ultimate surf and turf (strip steak and chili lobster) with salad and dessert (had the vanilla crepe brûlée and key lime tart). The sea bass was cooked and flavored perfectly. The steak was cooked as ordered and was extremely tender - we added truffle butter sauce which really enhanced the flavor. The chili lobster was very good also. Had a side of creamed corn mash - very sweet. Everything was excellent and we will continue to go back.

Wow. Dinner for two $300. That sets some pretty high expectations. Our salads were good and the sea bass was tasty and done just right BUT it sat on a mound of sticky rice surround by soy sauce. Seriously? While the service was pretty good it doesn’t compare to the main dining room of a Celebrity ship. At this price it should be much better.

It was Christmas Eve dinner. My wife's lobster on the risotto was not done and had to be sent back. Half way through dinner a staff person was working on the fish display with ice and water -- not attractive. And the servers did not how to serve -- just came out and served from wrong side and gentlemen first instead of ladies. Not impressed.

Good food. Nice ambiance. Tom and Mariah were a great waitstaff team. The hostess, on the other hand, was not welcoming at all. Both on the way in and out.

We went for our anniversary dinner. The staff offered to seat us in quieter private area for our occasion. Our waiter gave excellent recommendations for wine, appetizers, and food. The service was excellent quality. The lobster is very fresh and delicious.

Every aspect of our meal was fantastic. We will certainly be back.
