Food was very average but what really made the experience bad was the service. The waiter was non-existent throughout our visit. We constantly had to hunt wait staff to get things and then it was hit or miss whether the item would come. The only time the waiter showed up was when we were done with the meal and had been sitting around for about an hour. He just popped up and yelled “YES?” As if we had asked him something unpleasant. Most bizarre service ever. The food was also extremely average. Worst restaurant we ate at in our entire stay. Highly recommend looking elsewhere. The Cuban restaurants are terrific - both food and service.

Whilst the food is authentic, I really don’t understand how this restaurant is voted as one of the top for the whole of Miami. The location on the street next to a pretty busy road isn’t ideal and the food whilst tasty was nothing amazing. The staff were friendly but service was average. We won’t be rushing back

Food was amazing but waiter was very poor. We ordered two cocktails but the waiter only took one down, I had to explain 5 times that we ordered a Mojito and he thought I was ordering a new drink. I tried to order cheese with my fajitas but after 5 minutes of explaining and him still not understanding I had to google a picture of cheese to show him what I wanted.

My girlfriend wanted fish but it wasn’t on the menu so she ordered something else. The table next to us had a different waitress that explained the special was red snapper! Had my girlfriend known that she would’ve ordered.

There was also a man with a screwdriver in an electrical outlet directly behind my head which wasn’t ideal.

Food was amazing but service extremely poor

The food here was very good but they are kind of a shady operation. They never asked us if we wanted bottled or regular water. They just served bottled water and charged us $14. Also, the server said 18% gratuity was already on the bill “but if I wanted to leave her anything” I could. This was really awkward. She made it sound like she did not get any of the 18% which could not be true. I gave an extra 10% which included the 18% so we ended up tipping about 30% and paying $14 for water we did not order. The food was very tasty but I would not go back again.

The food and drinks were amazing. We had a member of our party order something and it was not to their liking (fish tacos), but the establishment still made us pay for it. I’ve never experienced that especially since the member of our party only tasted about 25/30 percent of the plate. The reason stated was that they ate the food so the establishment could not take it back.

It didn’t bring our mood down, but it was a weird situation.

We sat for 30mins before they took our order. Once order the food took an hour to get there. They messed up my daughter's food twice. In the end it was trash. I will never recommend this restaurant ever.

I forgot to leave a review about this place when I was vacationing in May. ITS AWESOME. Highly recommend, friendly staff, food was delicious, and the margaritas are amazing! The atmosphere and music are so much fun. After a long day at the beach, it was nice to relax and enjoy some great tacos and nachos here.

The food was good not great. The price was great. The portion for the meal was good but I would have liked some larger portion of side dishes. I would have liked the frozen daiquiri to be frozen all the way but it was good. The poor server was by himself. The host was helping when he could and fixed the table outside. It was too cramped outside for me and I didn't like people walking by my food but that was my wife choice of table so I went with it. To the host credit he did try to seat us inside.

The atmosphere and service was amazing!!! Franco was great, funny, and attentive! We ordered the chicken/chorizo nachos, chipotle shrimp and fish tacos! Those nachos were bangin! The tacos were good, I expected more flavor from the fish and shrimp. It was the eve of our anniversary, so they kept sending over shots and drinks! It was a great experience!!!

My husband and I have driven by this place quit a few times and have always seen it packed. I have to believe this is only because of the location because we finally decided to try it and I just don’t have words for what we encountered. My husband proceeded to order enchiladas, he asked if he could get two beef and one cheese, again he was told no. We order. We ordered guacamole for appetizer, I swear it was total of one avocado mashed, no lime, no cilantro, no onions, no salt. When we got our food, my husband’s enchiladas were cold, no melted cheese, even the tortillas were cold. The fajitas were charred and the peppers and onions that accompanied them were raw, no sizzling what’s so ever. In fact, when I asked the waiter to make them medium rare, he said he would see what he could do. They don’t ask you how you want your meat done, that should’ve been our first and only clue. They don’t serve them with the usual toppings like sour cream and pico de gallo, you have to ask for that stuff. Again, besides the meat being way overdone, no seasoning whatsoever. I don’t think the chef, if you want to call them that believes in using salt and pepper. The ONLY decent thing we ate there was the chips and salsa. We definitely returned the enchiladas, my husband needed up eating some of the fajitas, and I went home to make me a salad.

Please don’t go to this establishment. Poor customer service. We waited an hour and a half for food, and we had an appetizer of quest first. Drinks tasted like water. They aren’t social distancing. Just a terrible experience over all. I would never go back.

Extremely rude. Would not offer one single item that could be made gluten free despite their website and many reviews saying they were excellent at this. We got up and left with tears after traveling an hour to get there. Luckily Garden House 2 doors down graciously took care of us and the server there received a $100 tip for doing so.

We picked Mama's because of the many good reviews. We were surprised it wasn't a better dining experience. Had to ask for chips & salsa which were served in tiny 2 oz containers (there were 4 of us). The cheese queso appetizer was also quite tiny (½ cup?) for 4 people. The food was "just okay". Maybe they've changed hands since the previous reviews?
