    The pita and mushroom hummus was to die for. Chicken kabobs were nicely flavored. They have a small but decent wine list. Best restaurant we ate at while visiting Miami.

    Third time coming to Motek, first time for lunch because the food is so good. I will say that the server we had for lunch on 02/18 was absolutely terrible. Barely paid attention to our table and the few others who were also always trying to grab his attention. I’ll be back but will avoid this one particular server

    Wonderful service. We asked for an outdoor table since inside was quite loud. They were very accommodating and outdoor table was nice and much quieter. Our server was very good. The food was all excellent. Nice to have a good restaurant with a lot of Vegan options. We will be back. We had the mushroom hummus to start / falafel sandwich and chicken shawarma Plus fries and Greek salad. Everything was great.

    The experience at Motek started with us having to wait 20 minutes for a table inside, even though we had a reservation. Once we were seated, the waiter seemed flustered and made no mention of us being there for my birthday or even made an attempt at being friendly. Sadly, the $18 cocktails were terrible. I ordered the pink drink and had to send it back because it tasted like rubbing alcohol. The waiter recommended the watermelon cooler, which was also so bad that I took a sip and left the entire drink. It was also disappointing that the they were out of two popular items: the cigars and hummus. I had high hopes to celebrate my birthday here, but based on my experience we will not be coming back or recommending the restaurant.

    The food was so good! We got falafel, honey salmon, chicken schwarma plate, and the panna cotta. The vegan gluten free panna cotta was unreal! My bf is gluten free and dairy free so he got to enjoy dessert for once.

    Service was hideous- non existent! No wonder my server never came by our table and I had to flag down the food runners for anything I needed. They charge a 20% gratuity on the check automatically which gives no incentive for the servers to go out of their way to provide good service because they’re going to get their 20% tip regardless. It was awful!!

    We throughly enjoyed our early dinner at Motek. This was our second time there. We were not disappointed! The hummus appetizer, delicious. My partner had the honey salmon dish with a side of rice and lentils. She expressed to me and the wait staff her enjoyment. I had the chicken shawarma. Perfect. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    Started off the night wanting a drink and getting persuaded to get another that was awful, and then trying to be persuaded into some of the most expensive entrees. Seating outside was fine but not the friendliest service, value was moderate to low, but pushiness of server was off putting and made for a negative experience.

    Was very much a scene. Server was helpful but also pushy. Was loud and very energetic. If you are looking for more of that vibe then it’s a good option with good food. If you want a chill meal with conversation, not the place.

    The food is awesome! However, we had a reservation and had to wait 45 mins to sit at our table. One of the hostesses was incredibly rude. They were out of three items on the menu— two of which are favorites and one of the reasons we wanted to eat there. Service was ok overall. Waiter was semi attentive, but food was great and arrived quickly.

    The place is beautifully decorated. Seems to be the place to be lately in the Gables . I first went for lunch and was not happy with their Hummus ( a key dish for the Mediterranean cuisine ) . Nevertheless I went back for dinner because I liked the place and service plus I wanted to give it another chance . We had an exceptional service with Giovanny but again … the food was not impressive . The humus was better but not there yet . The colliflower had a good flavor but incredibly breaded and the cigars with phyllo dough were deep fried and kind of heavy . I was looking forward to the wagyu burger and I was dissapointed . Again , the place is beautiful with great cocktails and maybe you get more lucky with the food so give it a try.

    We ended up in the private room which was perfect because we had kids and adults over 80 in our party. We also ended up lowering the music in the room that made a big difference. The service was great and the food was as well. The only note the other guests made (this was their first time) is that a tasting menu would be helpful because it is a big menu and they felt like they needed more guidance in a restaurant that pushes “tapas style” dining. I have been back several times and will continue to return!👌🏾
