Poor service. Got moved repeatedly.
Cool outdoor vibe. Branzino tacos were delicious.
Great place for drinks and some jazz. Highly Recommended!
highly recommend this restaurant. Great service and food
This is one of my favorite spots in Miami- always good service, great ambiance, and great food.
Really great food! Loved the plants on the patio and the service was super attentive
We celebrated my birthday and it was an amazing experience. Everyone who worked there was amazingly friendly and such a great atmosphere. Drinks were great!
The food was excellent and it was like eating in a garden!
The servers were great - thanks Karen and Dee
Liz is amazing!! She seamlessly coordinated a big, last minute birthday dinner and was so sweet & helpful the entire time. The birthday wouldn’t have been so successful without her!
Delicious food,I love this place.
Everything about Melinda’s was great! From the quality of the food, service from the waiter, visual of the outdoor restaurant space and the live music - it was as they say these days, “a vibe”. Fantastic!
Large party for a birthday celebration! Great vibes and staff did a pretty good job with service and drinks
Everything was great! My only complaint is that the music is extremely loud... if you are planning to have a conversation it ain’t happening. I would suggest that the music plays at a decent volume from 8-10 pm and start raising the colume after that... but in our case it was a friends dinner to catch up from 7-10... we could t hear each other.
We were at Melindas for over two hours and still had not gotten our food of mediocre tacos and pizza. Our drinks took an hour as well and when we asked for water we were told they were busy and they’d get to it when they could, even though the restaurant was half full. Worst service I’ve ever had and would not recommend to anyone
My first time at melinda’s. The menu has something for every taste and the cocktails were excellent and unique. Our waitress was very friendly and professional and excellent at explaining the menu items. There is a loud speakeasy in the back with a DJ and bar-you are free to go through the curtained entrance and take part. The interior and atmosphere was very cool and friendly and lush. It is part outdoor. A really unique experience. I highly recommend. Hardly anything in Miami comes close in its atmosphere and presentation.
The garden is just lovely. The added bonus of some wonderful music and singer were special
The service was slow and the food was average. It has a nice ambience. Go for a cocktail but skip the food.
Nice place. Music was obnoxiously loud.
It was very good, except the portions were small
Love love love
Service was great! We had reservations and were seated right away even though we were 15 mins late. It's outdoors but partially covered. It had rained so my seat was wet. Restrooms were clean. Server was friendly and our food came out fast. We had ceviche and pizza and they were both delicious. Ordered a cocktail with mezcal tequila and a shot of mezcal tequila.....Disgusting! Server offered to take it back and remove from our bill. It was loud and energetic and a band was playing but we didn't enjoy the music. Overall good experience.
The food was alright, could have used better flavors for the wings. Pizza was alright too. The drink that I ordered that had coffee liqueur, I specifically asked please make it only if the bartender can add milk because I can’t handle strong flavors of espresso and liqueur. She assured me that milk will be added and low and behold, nope that was not in it. She never asked how was my drink and we were never asked how was our food. When we went there were not a lot of people and not many even while we were eating. A lot more servers but yet service was slow. Also, good service would be to check in with customers how is the food, drink etc.
No plans to visit again and no plans to recommend this place. We were visiting from out of town, thinking this would be a great experience.
A lot can be improved.
My favorite place. Great jazz band and love the plants.
Service was okay... waiter took long to take the orders, give us cutlery and plates, the food took long to come and it was cold.
The ambiance of the place was beautiful and cool even. The noise level was insane, having to yell at my husband across the table. The hostess at the front is not very inviting. Our waitress was nice enough, but we didn’t see her very much. The food was underwhelming (well my husband’s pepperoni pizza was good, but come on) and our drinks were sub par to say the least. Almost $200 and I wish I could get at least 60% of it back. Cool vibes though and the second DJ played a couple of good really loud songs before we left.
Great atmosphere! Very refreshing oysters and cocktails and an amazing happy hour. We really enjoyed ourselves.
2 hrs before our reservation we were called and told: they would hold the table for a max of 10 min; we would not be seated until all 6 were present; and we could only have the table for 1 and 1/2 hrs. We were not told this at the time of making the reservation. When we ALL arrived ON TIME, we were told we were on a 3O MIN WAIT for our table. This is not a special place and certainly not worth putting up with this treatment.
Amazing place, great atmosphere and great music. Really good food and excellent cocktails
Very helpful staff and tasty food.. love the vibe
Is Will pregnant? (Check his Instagram).
Seriously though, bartenders and staff, bless you all.
Food was delicious and service was great but music too loud. Couldn’t carry a conversation without screaming. Shame bc food was delicious.
Our server Annaleese (spelling) was the nicest person and so helpful and patient. She informed us the oysters may take awhile (they didn’t take long at all), she charged my phone. The whole atmosphere is magical & you feel like you’ve stepped out of the city into an amazing little jazz garden. Do not miss this place!!!
The food and drinks were absolutely amazing! Great service and ambiance. Highly recommend this place!
Amazing experience. The staff was so friendly, the food was amazing and the music/vibe was great. Definitely will be a go to spot moving forward
Excellent service! Thank you
Very active place with a lot of personality. The only issue is parking
Extremely loud. Crowded at the bar, table was not ready despite my reservation. Table was in a terrible location, we were getting bumped by a group of people standing at the bar, our drinks took
15 min to get and our order of a dozen oysters was never even put into the kitchen (we ordered them with our two drinks) We left after twenty minutes.
Professional, welcoming service.
Lovely ambiance, great music.
We will be back.
