    The place is a hidden gem. The menu is very limited but every item on it is absolutely delicious. The staff was awesome. Make sure to leave room for dessert. The vegan chocolate was incredible. (I’m not even vegan)

    An extraordinary surprise- we chose Morla based on proximity and reviews, but we certainly didn’t expect that we would have ended the evening having had one of the best meals in recent memory. The space feels quiet and intimate; the decor is thoughtful and eclectic without being cluttered, and the lighting was great. We were warmly greeted and given a full rundown of the menu with some great recommendations and started off with a spectacular pisco sour served in a glass cloche and topped with a huge bubble of vapor. Each dish (we had five for the two of us) was gorgeously presented and beautifully done- bright and creamy ceviches, fantastic fish tacos, and ending with a pear pasta that felt rich yet light and somehow like a comfort food that I never knew I needed. Service was friendly and attentive and deeply knowledgeable. We felt as if we were visiting more of a welcoming home instead of a restaurant in the very best way. I’d give Morla my highest recommendation. No doubt at all.

    Had an excellent dinner here. Restaurant is charming and Luis our server was so kind and very attentive. Our food came out very quickly and was super fresh. The branzino tiradito and Nikkei salmon ceviche are some of the best ceviches I've ever had. I love pear pasta and this is probably my favorite ever. You can tell this pasta is made fresh and cooked to perfection and the chunks of pear are great. The filet skewers were perfect texture and the side potato/chocle dish was delicious. I loved the old station 28 but this elevated menu is amazing. Definitely recommend!

    La comida es especial y única. Probamos muchos platos y todos fueron excelentes. El servicio fue muy bueno, tomaron buen cuidado de mi esposa (que tiene intolerancia a la lactosa). El ambiente es ideal para compartir con tu pareja o la familia. El precio es ligeramente costoso, pero vale la pena.

    There aren’t enough great words to explain the experience at this restaurant. The food, service, ambience, and experience are absolutely top of the line. The owner of this restaurant greeted us at the door, spoke with us so kindly, and you can see her passion for making the place top of the line. This is a HIDDEN GEM of Miami and deserves exponentially increased recognition. You will never regret an experience at Morla.

    The food was excellent . The pork tacos, Branzino and pasta were superb. The ceviches, snticuchos and fish tacos were also very good. The dessert could be avoided, not my cup of tea. The price of food is too expensive and I don’t believe it is sustainable when there are other places offering similar cuisine and are more affordable. In any case the experience was very good and service was attentive, timely and on point.I hope to go again.
