    First time going to Melinda's. Had a great time with friends and family from out of town. Drinks were reasonably priced, pizza was very good and the oysters were amazing. Parking was easy, but we did have a relatively early dinner for Wynwood. Its a fun little spot. Our server, Asia, was spot on. She never let our glasses go empty. Will definitely be returning.

    This is an awesome place for a unique experience where you feel like you’re outside but you’re really protected from the rain i’m surrounded by plants. Food is mostly pizza but lots of fun bar with a disco ball in the back for later on. To me this is a wonderful place to meet with friends and have a great time.

    Was actually pretty disappointed in my experience at Melindas. Have dined multiple times before and the experience was poor enough for me to write a review. Drink orders wrong, no oysters, no sliders -- was offered only guacamole and pizza. Ordered shrimp cocktail and they tasted like they were thawed from frozen. Not exactly the experience I have had in the past.

    The food was not edible. The chips for the ceviche and guacamole were old and stale, had a horrible funky smell. The guacamole tasted like lime , nothing else. The waiter was pleasant. I sent back the chips and he came back with new ones that he said he opened a brand new bag, they were just as old and smelly. Overall experience was the worst I have had in years, and we were charged for everything. Won’t ever go back

    Melinda’s/Open table allowed us to make a reservation for Melinda’s for Tuesday night. When my daughter arrived, the place was closed. The hours clearly state that Melindas is open Tues-Sun. Not sure where the fault lies, but it was really distressing.

    We went for happy hour. I wish we went later to listen to the live jazz. They have great happy hour prices. I would not eat the ceviche. It was stringy like tendons and the pieces of fish were too big so the lemon juice never got to the middle of the pieces. They were completely raw. Maybe if it socked longer it would be better.

    Went with a party of 10 for a birthday, was given slow service and never received multiple orders. Was over charged with no explanation. Would not recommend check out better spots like sugarcane or beaker and grey where they value their customer.

    Worst margaritas I’ve ever had. We got in the service was kind of slow to begin with and then our server never put in our order and switch us to a different server in the middle and when we asked for our meal the server said oh it looks like the prior server did not put it in the system. The second server was very nice but the food was still very bad. I mean it’s a cute place but go at your own risk. If you go maybe just have a beer or a glass of wine yeah but the food I wouldn’t recommend. Unless they change the chef and the bartenders.

    We had dinner at Melinda's prior to a show at the Arsht Center, an easy 3 block walk. The space is wonderful - we sat on the plant-filled patio, which is a very interesting, green space. It was happy hour, so pizzas were only $6, and cocktails were $9. The cocktail menu was great, and we all loved what we had. Our group ordered steak tacos, pizzas from the happy hour menu, and wings from the happy hour menu. Overall they have a very limited menu - it's mainly bar food. The pizza was just OK; the tacos and wings were pretty good. Would highly recommend Melinda's for drinks and nibbles, and it would be a cool place to hang out for a few hours. For dinner we will likely try another option in the neighborhood.

    I visited Melinda’s on a Friday night as my girls and I visited from New Jersey. If your looking for a cute place to vibe and take pictures this is Absolutely the place. We were greeted by an attentive, and beautiful host named Adriana she was actually the best parts of the experience. The food was lackluster. I would not recommend the oysters (any of them) all seasoning no taste. The margarita pizza was simply a cheese pizza with some basil on top. Definitely was not expecting that. The restaurant turned into a lounge at 12pm. However, the music was very sci-fi techno. It had a red light alley way where people would go and indulge in whatever they were doing back there. I would recommend going back there after 1am for safety reasons. The bar in the lounge was extremely overpriced. We paid $96.00 for three Casamigos shots, a Red Bull and a ginger ale. The Bartender also charged my party of 3 a 18 percent gratuity and indicated on the receipt we were a party of 6 when it was only three of us. Overall, I would return to see the host Adriana. She is a gem to Melinda’s. I wouldn’t order anything but the guacamole and tacos and I would not go into the lounge or order any shots. Definitely just a spot for some pictures and the Ambience.

    Bebidas a punto, nada extraordinario pero tampoco malas. Los tacos de pescado eran más guacamole que pescado y no tenían salsas para los tacos (hay más variedades pero 0 salsas). Para una cena romántica el volumen es muy alto pero para noche de copas, me parece ideal con ese techno de fondo.

    Loved this restaurant! Immediately put it on my Google list for spots in Miami to revisit. The oysters were soooo good and the pizza was decent. I’m from NY so it takes really special pizza to make it to the ‘great’ ‘delicious’ ‘best’ category. Be it as it may - I would absolutely come back. The ambiance is so perfect and beautiful. Definitely a cute date spot. Service is was good! Could be better but - could be worse.
