Amazing tacos and service. Jose was our server and he was phenomenal. The drinks were great, we ordered the cheese, guacamole and salsa with chips and the lemon pepper fries. The lemon pepper fries had a hint of lemon. The steak and mushroom taco, lobster taco and shrimp tacos were the best. We also had a americano and carnitas tacos and those were just ok.

Food was really good! I was surprised as Miami is well known for its Cuban food but this restaurant hit top marks! Big fan and will be back whenever I’m in the city:)

The food quality of Naked Taco has went down tremendously and the ingredients used are of a lesser quality. We have eaten here in the past and loved it, but you can definitely tell there has been a change in ingredients and perhaps kitchen management. Extremely disappointed.

Went for taco Tuesday. Service was great. Margaritas were on point. Wish they had more taco Tuesday offerings. Tried a couple of the tacos. While the chicken taco was delicious, the steak was tough and dry.

Jose from Cuba our waiter was AMAZING!! He made us feel like we’ve known each other for years!! I had the chicken verde enchiladas and they were GREAT, my kids had the burritos and enjoyed them just the same. They wanted to go there again today but we have reservations elsewhere.

Good wasn’t that great. The ahi tuna nachos was just three huge wontons loaded with tuna. I was expecting a real plate of nachos. Also, the tuna was over seasoned and salty. The tacos were pretty good, but not great.

Birthday celebration. We wanted outdoor seating but didn’t realize how loud the music would be so we went inside. Inside not as interesting as other restaurants nearby. Food was very exceptional though, 10/10 but after we were served our waiter took a long time to get us the check as we ended up waiting a solid 45 minutes for him to even come back to the table to check on us. Not even that busy for him to take a long time, and it was very clear that we were finished with our meals and ready to go. For a birthday celebration, I wouldn’t recommend coming here. But if I were just lookin for good affordable food, it’s a good place. A little disappointed for overall experience...5/10.

Our main entrees (tacos, fajitas) were pretty good. My wife and guest especially liked the lobster tacos. You definitely are paying a premium to eat in South Beach, but we expected that, and it's in-line with every other restaurant in the area. Maybe I'm a bit spoiled from spending years living in Phoenix and Austin, but the salsa and queso were some of the worst I've ever had. Think Pace Picante + queso from a can in terms of flavor. Absolutely abysmal is the best way I could put it. No exaggeration that the only place I've had worse was Casa Bonita in Denver. That said, our server was attentive, though he forgot to ask my wife for a drink order after taking mine, which was definitely not the end of the world. I will say it was obvious he was trained to turn over tables quickly, and we felt a bit rushed for a ~$200 meal, but again, I sort of expected this in SB, so not a huge deal, but something you should be aware of.

Loved the Philly cheese steak taco, elote and of course the margaritas. My husband said the Americano taco was very good as well. We also got the dip trio. All dips were good, but not the best we've ever had. This can easily get expensive if you like to eat a lot since just one taco is like $9.

The food was OK. We were in a back room and there was a woman at the bar who had an annoying dog that barked the entire meal. it was quite surprising that none of the wait staff said anything or did anything. Experience was nothing special

We visited Naked Taco while on vacation in South Beach - it did not disappoint! Recommend Margaritas + mojitos + chips, salsa, cheese and quacomoli + lobster, shrimp, Baja fish tacos. Servicer was friend and efficient. Recommend reservation and indoor seating was covid friendly with space between tables.

Our waiter was absolutely amazing. He 100% made us feel special and took fantastic care of us. It was my mom and I in the midst of South Beach Spring Break madness, and he jumped right in and made us feel like part of the party. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Fantastic tacos and the wait service is always outstanding. Greeting staff however was rude and would not accommodate my outdoor reservation indicating other reservations had priority over mine and were made earlier in the day. I booked my dinner reservation at 11:45am so I find it hard to believe there were many reservations ahead of mine and in any event I had a confirmed outdoor reservation so the whole thing was nonsensical. The entire outdoor area was empty when I arrived yet we still could not be seated outside.

Fun atmosphere with laid back vibe. Tried the elote corn, shrimp and lobster tacos, none of which blew me away but were pretty good. My husband had the Big Frank Crunchwrap which is served with a side of queso for dipping - I snuck a bite and yes, it was delicious. For drinks we got a margarita flight which was a fun pairing for our dinner.

I am overly impressed with the service! Our waiter Manny went above and beyond literally over a basket of chips. We received a basket of chips that had mostly broken pieces however we did not mention this to anyone, it wasn’t a big deal in our eyes. Manny brought my husband and I a complimentary drink and apologized for the broken chips! Totally not expected at all! The manager John came over to our table shortly after and apologized too! We are blown away. The food is amazing as well. My husband said his Philly steak taco was the best taco he’s had. The lobster taco is tasty and full of lobster! The salsa, queso, and guacamole combo is delicious! This place has a fun vibe, If you don’t go, you’re missing out!

You have to have the tacos here! Lobster taco is incredible, fish tacos a close second. Skip the Sangria, with all the great fruit in Miami you put chopped apple in it? That was a miss. The hostess was snotty, but the waiter made up for it.

I’m very surprised this place has such great reviews. We had an absolutely terrible experience. Service was slow, food was average and the cocktails that were $30 each were not drinkable. When we asked if we could have the cocktails remade they basically told us it was our fault for not liking them and we would still be charged.
