Great setting. Lovely outdoor back patio area. Staff is friendly and attentive. The grilled octopus and the ceviche were excellent starters. The churrasco steak was perfectly done and seasoned as was the plank salmon. Great value for the price. Service was a little uneven (one server came by with the same starters a couple of times - I guess we could have eaten twice) but a very nice spot to eat in Miami Beach.

I was drawn to this restaurant because of a spicy lobster dish on menu. I asked to take the remainder with me. The guy didn't understand me but when I explained to my waiter, they remade the dish for me to take home. I think that was cool.

We went for Christmas brunch. The food choices at the buffet were limited and the meats weren’t cooked well. Great ambience.

Went on a Sunday for the brunch buffet. It was pretty good but 100% not worth the price. This place is good for a special occasion but I would never come here casually.

Made a reservation for 9:30 then changed it to 10:00 because our flight was delayed when we arrived there was no one in the restaurant and apparently they decided to “close early” even though we had made and confirmed our reservation for 10:00 pm.

It was average overall. Nice enough staff but we didn’t know who our waiter was as so many people stopped by at odd times. Miami service is often strange. Ordered rare hamburger and it was completely raw and inedible. Risotto was very good. French fries laughably bad. Overall a typical mediocre Miami experience

Food is great. Service is less than average. I had to ask every waiter and server for napkins, utensils, drink and the check. My waitress had smoked a fatty, wreaked of weed and was so high, she forgot she was a waitress and glued herself to the band like a groupie. Funny and pathetic.

I had the branzino and was pretty pleased. Others had the tuna poke and were not happy. The service was mediocre at best. Server barely spoke English and forgot items ordered. Ambiance was nice.

We went for brunch on my sister’s bachelorette party and LOVED this place. Great ambiance on the patio, very chic Miami vibes. The food was delicious, and our service was excellent. Just as a heads up, the brunch buffet with the live Cuban band and the $15 bottomless Rosé is only available on Sunday. Saturday brunch is just the regular brunch/lunch menu with no drink specials.

Beach/Pool feel — not dining room standards.
Bartender was excellent.
Presentation could have had more crispness and energy.

I wish this restaurant had an à la carte menu to compliment their Sunday Brunch buffet. The offerings, though good quality and attentively curated for diverse palette, were nothing out of this world. I have seen bigger spreads at friends' homes when invited over for Sunday breakfast.

Service is friendly and relaxed, but could have been more attentive.

Skip brunch and go for the live Cuban music, overpriced cocktails and pool side views. Those alone are worth the price of admission.

Excellent food and service. Only problem is that if you do sit outside there can be people smoking who are seated by the outdoor pool at the hotel. I needed to move inside to finish my meal.

Miserabler Service. Weder die Getränke, noch das Essen wurden richtig bestellt. Der Drink konnte wegen fehlenden Zutaten nicht produziert werden. Der Mixer war auch defekt. Der Hauptgang kam vor der Vorspeise. Der Wein schmeckte nach Essig und war mindestens 2-3 Tage offen. Diese Restaurant ist das schlechteste Erlebnis in Miami, das wir in 14 Tagen erlebt hatten. Nie wieder gehen wir dort hin. Schlimm. Kein Wunder, dass wir um 21 Uhr die einzigen Gäste waren.

Went for brunch stayed for the afternoon DJ. The staff is great. The space is fantastic. Food and drinks are on point and the DJ, Miss Eddy Pink, was one of the best we've seen on South Beach. A great vibe. Guaranteed to have a fun afternoon! This is going to become our regular "Sunday Funday" spot.

My husband and I were staying at the hotel and wanted a romantic meal after a long day- the host was charming and accommodated our request to move tables, but our waitress was scattered and kept dropping the ball. The restaurant is very pretty but was almost empty for dinner on a Sat- not a good sign. We ordered 6 appetizers/salads and asked her to pace them since we also ordered a bottle of champagne and wanted to enjoy ourselves. 20 mins later all 6 plates showed at once... we expressed our dissatisfaction and they took three back. Still it was too much going on at once, hot/cold/ceviches and mussels together. Threw off the meal pace and we never got back on track. She was nice but also not super responsible about messing up. Missing utensils, slow getting a new bottle of water. There were perhaps five other tables. Wouldn't go back. Next day it looked like a fun rowdy brunch spot, definitely more appropriate for an inexpensive casual meal than a $300 dinner. Disappointed

Menu seemed less interesting than it did when we first visited Driftwood. Waiter was nice-but seemed to be going through the motions. My entree was good- but was missing something. We made it a point of returning this trip as we enjoyed it so last year. Don't plan on retuning next trip as South Beach has so many excellent choices.

The service was terrible. 3 people serving us only one was helpful. They forgot our food The quality of food wasn't bad but the preparation was bad. I have never been to a restaurant where they have the silverware directly on the table and not on a napkin. It was put on a bare marble table. Marble being porous imagine the germs on the table. Very unappetizing.

Excellent meal in SoBe- we had the mussels appetizer which was very tasty- also the calamari was excellent. I had the filet au poivre- was very tasty but large ......I couldn't finish. My husband enjoyed the churrasco and yuca frita. Our son had the kids meal grilled cheeseburger and fries- perfect family dinner w selections for everyone . Great wine list to choose from. Service was great. Hip but laid back atmosphere - Highly recommend this restaurant!
