I am a solo traveler.
And as such, I always get the less desirable seat. When the waitress do not propose me to eat at the counter
This is disappointing. We all deserve to enjoy a nice spot and combine gorgeous view and good food.
Beautiful place though, be mindful of providing to all customers the same dining experience!
With appreciation!

unfortunately this was far below expectations. The pictures on Opentable don’t reflect at all what a shabby place this really is. filthy seating, bad pizza dough, the much promoted skirt steak which ordered medium arrived overly well done… red wine by the glass was borderline vinegar. all in all shameful for a Nobu Hotel!

It was very disappointing. I’ve been to the original
Malibu location and was hoping for fresh, organic, leafy food. Instead we had slow service, and our fish tacos were grilled pieces of mahi-mahi with two cold tacos and only a few side condiments. The jalapeño margarita was good!

We could have made our reservations anywhere to celebrate our wedding anniversary. However they really do a good job of marketing this place online. We made it a point to indicate that it was our wedding anniversary so we could meet the staff (even the day before when we checked into Nobu Hotel when we walked over there just to grab a drink).
We received a text that our table was ready 30 min before our reservation so we went to the restaurant to check-in. The hostess did not recognize us from the day before and was not friendly. When we reminded her that it was our anniversary there was still no acknowledgement and we were asked to "stand aside" because our table was not ready (even though we got a text). Nothing special was done for us and we sat with an empty drinks, never offered more to drink and was not impressed with the small portions for the prices that tacked on an automatic 20% service charged with an option to add on addition tip. We were there longer than we wanted to be. Not a way we wanted to start off our anniversary. VERY disappointed!!

CyandJ, I’m disheartened that this was your experience with us, especially since you gave us the opportunity to celebrate your anniversary with you. One aspect of a guest’s experience we stress is the importance of guest recognition: knowing your name, face, drink of choice, or what you’re celebrating are all factors that tailor and elevate the service you’ll receive. I’m sincerely sorry we missed the mark this time; we hope you’ll give us another shot in the near future to better serve you.

I'm not one to negatively review places ever, but I wish we hadn't picked this place. The menu on the website isn't the same, but by the time we sat and realized that, it was too late to find somewhere else to go. In addition to that, it was insanely overpriced, plus they add their own 20% gratuity which no one tells you about either. Our waitress was nice and the view was pretty, but we could've found both of those things without having to pay for a small $30 plate of nachos. Their website also isn't updated with the valet fee- so expect to pay more there, too.

We were at the hotel for 5 days and ate at least one meal there every day. The service is good. Malibu Farms is in a hotel. once the hotel became full, the service declined. Before the hotel became full, the service was good-water refilled, hot food,quick service of food. Once the hotel became full, errors were prevalent-no Ketchup with burgers, the omelett had been sitting under the heater in the back and was not warm on the inside. omelets are served with ONE piece of toast. I asked to substitute salad for the potatoes and extra salad was not given on 2 occasions.The burgers are excellent. The pancakes are excellent and are served with a perfect amount of soft butter and syrup. The pancakes are perfect. 2 years ago, they had a boulliabase entree, which is no longer on the menu-bring the boulliabase back and I might even learn how to spell it!

After reading several poor reviews, I was skeptical. The service was great, and the food as well. Recommend the avocado pizza and the nachos. It is pricey and watch out for the service charge added to the bill. The location and view is wonderful.

The views here are amazing! Love dining with oceanfront views. The food was delicious as well. Our server was good but not amazing as he only stopped by for drinks, take our order, and give us a bill. I would not say the value here is fair as it's a bit overpriced, however, it's expected due to the location.

Beautiful ocean front views. It was very HOT but they were not running the fans within the outdoor seating. The BBQ corn flat bread was really yummy but the shrimp tacos weren’t something I would get again. Pretty good spicy margarita. The server was polite but the service was slow.

The view is amazing, and one of the best on Miami Beach from a restaurant. However, the food was underwhelming which was not my experience before. The pizza was cold and just okay. I would still come back but have had better experiences in the past.

Food was cold and horrible. Tortillas so dry they fell apart in tacos. Service was very poor as well. Our waiter did not enjoy his job at all evidently. It was made pretty clear from the moment he came to our table! Save your time and money!

I went with my family. The food was standard and a little pricey for what was given. The views were gorgeous and we had a great breeze the whole time. We went on a Tuesday, so the place was not crowded which made our meal very relaxed. We got great pictures. Probably wouldn’t come back for the food but it was a nice place and our server, Danny, was very attentive and friendly. Danny recommended the avocado pizza and it was a hit!
