Extremely dirty and in poor condition, old, the tables sticky and the cushions completely dirty and stained. ,Sadly I made a mistake picking this place to celebrate Mother’s Day with my wife and her mother, I was ashamed and it was too late to find any other place to go eat. The food at Flanigans is probably of the same quality or better, but Malibu farms is 3 times more expensive.
The hostess and waiter were nice and did their job, it is not their fault.

A perfect location for Mother's Day, even on a rainy day.

Unfortunately there is no dress code so while you are expecting the caliber and experience of Malibu Farm, you are sitting next to someone with suntan lotion and bathing suit.

Not practical at all for special occasions. Ok for drinks and quick bite,

Amazing view but it’s exactly the same when it was operated by the Eden Rock. Don’t expect more but be ready to pay for it.

Mother’s Day lunch. The hostesses were amazing, the waitress was just okay, it took her a awhile to bring the welcome mommy’s day drink and it was filled half way! The shrimp tacos came with no fixings! A real disappointment. The location and view was amazing though. Next time we would just go for drinks. The mom’s day menu was overpriced! We asked for one of the two desserts to be to go. Instead both desserts were packed to go and the waitress was not apologetic and did not offer to ‘Plate’ it. Would not go back for service or food.

I guess I had my expectations set too high. This place is no different than a pool bar with tasteless food. Service was great the rest is history.

Food was limited and lackluster. Expected a farm to table type menu with organic healthy options. Danny the server was excellent and nice to speak with. View was great as it’s on the beach. Otherwise disappointing

I’ve come to Malibu Farm in Malibu and I am much more pleased with the Miami location. The staff was very friendly and the food was phenomenal! I’m glad our server recommended the avocado pizza! The fruit tray was really good too!!
My only complaint is that my drink had a bug in my drink and they just took it to the bar and took it out and brought it back.

We expected a lot better from the kitchen... the avocado pizza sounded great but was served cold... disappointing... the idea is good
overall food seemed better reading the menu and knowing Nobu is somehow sharing the location than reality
The views are nice... place is informal, but should look and feel cleaner

Unfortunately there was a giant pool party filled with shoulder to shoulder guests during our stay. This transferred over to the restaurant. During Covid, it did not make for a pleasant dining experience while on vacation. Sadly, the food was not good, I would not eat here here.

The food was sub par for the cost and we returned our fish tacos because they were oily dry grilled fish in a crumbling corn tortilla, asked to replace the order with another dish that then never came out so we cancelled it. Service was just very slow and the whole place seemed run down and nothing like the Malibu farms in California. Disappointing for sure.

Scenery was definitely nice! Didn’t expect it to be a hotel restaurant because the ambiance was part open ocean views part background noises of people at the pool. However our drinks, appetizer and service was great and we sat for a couple hours and had a good time! Point being it was more casual than I expected which in retrospect is an unexpected positive surprise.

I’ve been to the Malibu location and had the tacos and they were amazing. These tacos I had in Miami were not as fresh. Grilled shrimp was good but shells terrible and fell apart. Nothing else came with it no veggies nothing just a few sauces. Just not what I expected.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Our server Bobby was very personable, accommodating and knowledgeable. He was onlooking with his suggestions especially dessert. Loved the sea bass dish withe mashed potatoes rather than the quinoa which comes as a normal side.

While the view here is big -- one of the only restaurants on the beach where diners can actually see the ocean, as the facility is elevated over the dunes -- the menu is small. It's an all-day menu, with some breakfast items, some expensive dinner entrees, and then a handful each of pizza, salad and sandwich/tacos. Four of us were there for lunch, since the view is only available during the daytime. We all struggled to find something we wanted to order. We ended up ordering wine and sharing a corn pizza ($24 for a 10-inch pie!) and the shrimp tacos (4 of them). They were fine. And the carrot cake was mediocre. But for a place that at least in the beginning touted farm to table, there's not much here. We were puzzled by what this place aims to be. Maybe it's fine for people who stay at the attached Eden Roc Hotel and need to grab a bite, because there's not that much else nearby. But we've crossed it off our list as a place to bring friends and enjoy an ocean view and a meal.
