Nativo is located in a hotel that was previously a Conrad, the high end of Hilton. We booked the restaurant thinking it was Conrad and expecting the "Conrad" experience that we had before. It is now under the AKA brand and it was not what we experienced. It was empty and there was no ambiance.

For the view if you're seated outside it is lovely. That's about it. The dining experience was underwhelming to say the least. However the service from Maeve our server was superb!

I ordered the fresh catch of the day it was grouper. The chef sat it on a bed of chopped veggies which was a nightmare for anyone's palette. Hard celery, radish, apple and barely which DID NOT complement the fish. And the avocado foam to the side a miss. It's unfortunate that such high expectations where met with this experience really.

The view and ambience amazing- on the 25th floor looking out toward Biscayne Bay and Dodge Iskand where the ships dick.
Really but e happy hour menu, the crisp octopus bites were tender inside, and outside crunch with a nice dipping sauce with just enough heat. Ceviche delicious. Wines by the glass boring- only house wine… bottle selection was limited but good choices .
Dinner was smashed burger- good, but I expected a pressed burger- it wasn’t- my bad. The catch was delicious- Cobia with a crispy quinoa avocado dust char cooked perfectly on a nice avocado salad, albeit the piece of fish was very small for the price I doubt even 3 oz. no regrets, still delicious.
Dessert really special deconstructed key lime pie… like a sweet-ish little nest of shredded wheat , perfect cream , and perfect pudding . Just tart enough. Service excellent. Would eat here again

It’s a great place to have a relaxed and romantic dinner specially with the beautiful biscayne & Brickell view. Priceless. Like I previously read, a hidden gem.
The only thing I would suggest, to have more menu options. Overall was great!

We had wanted to visit this restaurant for a while. It did not disappoint. We did not get a table outside to enjoy the beautiful evening, but next time. We found a table inside and in a private area. Service was outstanding and food delicious. We will be back. I wished I had gotten our server’s name because she was awesome!

Bland place zero ambiance which is a shame as it could have been much better. Guess recently opened and finding their feet. Food below average nothing to shout about given the really limited choice should have been better! Wine selection really overpriced and not explained. I resorted to google.. probably a typical “hotel” restaurant...

Hostess/greeter was not at all friendly or welcoming. Not a good start. Offered us the worst possible table despite many open tables - we had a reservation so it’s not like we just walked in. We asked for a a nicer table and she looked annoyed. Seated us at a table that wasn’t very clean, with food on the floor. Food was very basic, nothing exciting at all. Our server was great - the only good thing. Bathrooms are off the hotel lobby and ladies room had trash overflowing onto the floor, sinks needed wipe downs This restaurant is in the Conrad Hotel - they should really not have unkept bathrooms at any point with the rates they charge. Valet was good, but $15 to park with validation. Definitely would not return for overpriced food and unfriendly hosts.

We had a delightful and creative red snapper dish. The restaurant is as advertised, and it is on the 25th floor. We sat at one of the outside tables and had a great view of Key Biscayne Bay. The menu was not huge, but appeared to have something for everyone. It is in the Conrad Hotel.

It's a bit sad that there aren't that many photos of the outdoor dining. The view from there is amazing! You get to see the port of Miami, Fisher Island, and a bit of Virginia Key. The food menu isn't big but, do recommend the house salad and beet hummus (delicious).

Came here for some drinks & appetizers on a Saturday night. The views from this restaurant are some of the best in Miami for sure! But the best part of our evening heads down was the bartender, Rekey. One of the most talented bartenders in Miami & such a gentleman! This restaurant is lucky to have him. Will most definitely be back!

I got a reservation on Valentine's Day at 9:15 pm and the system shows that the reservation keeps from 9:15 pm to 9:45 pm. I just arrived at 9:40 and go to the restaurant at 9:40 pm (you can check the cameras if you want). My girlfriend waits more than 10 minutes and no hostess there. One big guy from the bar come to us and said that the restaurant closes the kitchen and no way to get our special dinner of Valentine's Day. (The guy was nice to come and talk to us) No dinner there and paid valet for nothing. I was lucky because in operable I got a reservation in STK steakhouse in Miami beach at 10:30 and service and food of STk so good. I can't recommend this place if close doors at 9:45 pm

Disappointing experience. Made reservation through Open Table for outdoor sitting. When checking in, there was no hostess and we were waiting to be seated with nobody bothering to assist. When we asked someone, they just said they were booked outdoor and can only accommodate us inside.
Ambiance was good, but the menu was very limited to basic bar food. We ordered basic simple appetizers which took over an hour to be served. Nobody bothered checking on us during that time or giving an explanation for the delay. The place was not crowded (about 25% of the capacity) and we noticed another table with a group of 8 people next to us, also complaining about the long wait to be served.
We were attempted to be served the wrong order and when our order arrived, there wasn’t any apology nor explanation for the delay.
This people do this for living, they should have it worked as a science by now. We read several other reviews with similar problems.
To top the dissatisfaction we were over billed for some of the food, which was adjusted upon pointing it out to the waiter.
Overall: expensive and lousy service.

We were excited to spend the first night of Valentines weekend here, but were truly disappointed by our experience. There weren’t many people, the view was scenic, and the ambience was nice which are the only good things I have to say. However, we had to be asked to be sat even though we had a reservation. It took forever for our order to be taken and for our food to come. The food was truly disappointing - something out of a Chef Boyardee can would’ve been better. Would not recommend!

We went to Nativo for a dinner for two on Friday night. I requested to be seated outside as the view of Biscayne Bay and the Port of Miami is a particularly nice one from this vantage point at the Conrad. The food and the service were both very good. Although I do wish the appetizers and desserts were larger. I know small plates are cliches for fine dining establishments, but an $18 octopus entree got us about half of baby octopus tentacle sliced over some purple potatoes. It was very tasty, but gone in two bites. Same with the dessert, it seemed like a sample instead of a full sized plate. That aside, the quality of the food, the service, and the backdrop of Biscayne Bay make Nativo a great date spot.

Pablo Lamon's food is possibly some of the best I have had anywhere, including Michelin 2 and 3-star restaurants. We were so impressed with the Valentine's Day set menu, we went back the next evening for the regular menu which did not disappoint at all. Nativo Kitchen is a must-try.
