    The service was awful. The cocktails were just as bad we needed to send them back. Our food was delayed over an hour and the server never tended us just to take our drink order and and food order. We needed to ask the food runners for the next round of cocktails

    0 service, food was not good, hostess were Lacking in good manners. The waiter was nice, but poor him he had to deal with so many requests from all the table that he was going crazy. It was my birthday, I went there on purpose 2 times to make sure that everything was perfect and to ask for a specific table. They didn't give me that table and they told me that I never went there to ask it (i had also the text messages with the hostess). The cocktail - for which I wait 30 min because there were just 2 bartenders - was horrible as well And for all this, they also charged me for the service charge...

    In my opinion Moloko Miami is an excellent restaurant and I highly recommend it. It is rare to find such high quality cuisine in MB : fresh produce, no taste additives that one finds in most restaurants and a high level of demand in taste and presentation. The garden setting is fantastic and reminds me of some great places I have been to on a French Caribean island. The price is a bit steep but I would say on par for MB. I certainly have paid more for less.

    As a long time member and dedicated to Miami fine cuisine, my wife and I where really taken back by our overall experiance at Moloko. The service was very bad, and took over 20 minutes for someone to notice we where their after we where sat down. The waitress which was directed to us was just on her second day so the overall experiance was not entirely her fault. First part of the order came wrong which was later corrected, however, the main courses where not good. My wife SeaBass was not possible to eat and was returned. She then ordered the Branzino which was over cooked and by this time she was very hungry so she eat a portion of it. What was very interesting when the Brazino was brought to our table. We where told due to the delays, mistakes and being that her main course was sent back. The Branzino would not be charged to our bill. Once the bill was brought forward, I brought this to the attention of our waitress. She returned a few minutes later with a corrected bill as per representation. Later after the card was swiped and went to sign-it I brought back to her attention that the Branzino was still on the bill. She went on to call the manager who told me who would not take it off the bill because the SeaBass was replaced. I then asked him then why did your employee represent to my wife and I that the Brazino was on the house because of all the inconveniences? He said it was a mistake! I said as well as the service and the previous mistakes prior to our main courses? He just walked away and didn't care at all. I am very sure that the owner's/partners of this establishment need to know what is going when it comes to their customers. I will not return to this restaurant nor would I recommend it. We as customers seek quality, professionalism and a great experience. However, this was not afforded to us based on the GM on duty that evening. I hope that the owners will realize this misfortune. Respectfully, Michael Hood

    The server was completely lost, I had to call them to serve us after 15 minutes of waiting. Server had no idea what Scotch was. Server smoking at the same time bringing the food. Servers were having shots at the bar and sitting on the street. They look drunk! The manager never came to check on us. The bartender gave us a cheaper tequila after the second drink but charged the premium price. Food was good!

    Worst hostess ever. The manager was very kind but the hostess was so disrespectful and stuck her nose up at us. Zero hospitality. Thank god the manager was kind enough to address the issue but none the less we waited 45+ mins for our table despite a reservation.

    Branzino was good. Toro brioche was tasty but would be much better it there was 50% more caviar. The amount of money they charge for it they can afford it. We didn’t find anything to come back for.

    Weird experience. Bathroom was gross. The A/C inside didn’t work. Restaurant was kind of empty for a Sat night. Food was okay. The wagyu rice was flavorless. When we sent it back the chef said we were wrong and that it was fine — refused to remove from bill but made us another one that was basically the same thing. All the other food was good; branzino and brioche pieces were the top highlights. Server was friendly and attentive but after the souring response from the chef and lack of intervention from the manager probably won’t be going back or recommending.

    This visit the food was not the best. I always have the Pak Choi. This time it was way too spicy. Lobster was not much taste kinda dry :( My friend did not like the Seabass. The Chocolate dessert was amazing as always :))) Sitting inside was nice but the doors were open so we were kinda hot. If we go again I hope we will have the best experience like the first couple of times.

    Plus, only one is comfortable and beautiful inside the restaurant, very authentic. Cons: -extremely meager menu, very small portions, not tasty food, -the cocktail list is terrible - not tasty cocktails at all, serving is disgusting, in some tall cheap glasses with canned fruit - most of the waiters don’t speak English, which is nonsense, that is, you cannot really explain what you want to order. And of course, the toilet became a fat point for me! Oh my God, shabby walls, dirt in the corners, cheap plumbing, soap as if I were at the station. Restaurant owners - Aren't you ashamed of having such a disgusting toilet? It's your face!

    Unfortunately we never sat down to eat. We had a reservation but the only table they had for us was outside. The outside is pretty, but it was empty and it’s summer - the inside has about 20 seats and there was only one table available - we were told by manager that it was for a larger party and that they wouldn’t seat us there. We weren’t even able to order a drink at the bar :/ they need to get it together. I was excited for a new place in sunset harbor, but will not be going back. Service is as important as great food and ambiance. I can’t speak of the food, but I don’t like eating at a place that isn’t run well -

    Moloko had made its way to my top 5 favorite restaurants in Miami in its short time being opened. Every time I’ve gone it’s been an amazing experience from start to finish. The Toro Caviar brioche toast is an absolute must have, seriously worth going back just for that dish!

    went here for dinner with a friend on a thursday night. i chose to be seated inside as opentable lets you choose, but when i had to find the host instead of being greeted, she informed me that she doesn’t have any inside seating because of an event. looks bae on the restaurant, maybe they shouldn’t have the option to choose where you want to be seated if they can’t follow up on their part. we got “candy bar” cocktails which were good and sweet. for entree, we ordered the filet mignon which is a little overpriced ($49) that didn’t come with a side besides the little bits of onion on top, but it’s miami. we also got the lobster pasta, which was ok, but nothing crazy. for dessert, we had the japanese cheesecake, which i really liked. our check came out to $190 with a 20% gratuity already included for a mediocre service . i know the restaurant is new, but they need to work on their service, because they messed up the check and brought me someone else’s and the hostess wasn’t able to sit us in the assigned spot, for the money we spent, there are better spots in miami which can accommodate to your needs.

    The place is gorgeous, the food is delicious, but they serve you too fast. You can be in and out with dinner in 30 minutes. I don’t like that, because I feel like I’m eating at a fast food joint. That being said the food is amazing. I don’t like waiting too long either, but in an hour and 30 minutes seems crazy.

    Definitely one of the prettiest restaurant in the neighborhood gorgeous However they have a very limited menu not much But what makes matters worst is they charged me one amount on my credit card, and when i got the bill it was $20.00 more, then i tried calling and calling to get it corrected, out of principle and still could not get thru so always LOOK at your bill , THEN your CC statement to see if it matches For that reason alone we will NOT recommend or Go back
