Our food was excellent and the servers went out of their way to guide our friend who cannot tolerate gluten. A good experience!

Honestly, the food was pretty bland. Good biscuits in the beginning… I was so hungry that I ate it all anyway, but I got the bucatini al’amatricana, which is supposed to be salty and meaty and delicious, and I realized that the pasta was kind of soft, there was really no crispy chunks of pancetta in it, and it needed salt. Bummer! Didn’t get dessert, wasn’t that interested. It’s really pretty though.

Service was weak. Very slow and inconsistent. They forgot to give a birthday/candle dessert for my girlfriend when I clearly stated on the website that there was a birthday.

We had a delicious dinner. The pasta was amazing. We tried three different ones, each one was so good. The grilled fish was delicious. The rolls and crab butter. Omg. The service was excellent. It was a rainy night so we ate indoors. I prefer outside ambiance. Can’t wait to return. Coconut Grove’s best restaurant .

Nave is a neighborhood gem! Food Always consistently great!! Service was impecable even though it was very busy. Must have the Florida clams, the mushroom appetizer and the fried, yes the fried snapper Milanese !! And of course the Biscayne biscuits with crab infused spread !! Omg!! They have a great selection of wines by the glass and excellent cocktails. Parking easy, valet or city lot a block away. Can’t wait to return next week!!

Our food did not seem fresh. My friend and I all agreed, we have eaten at Nave many times before but last nights meal was by far the worse we’ve had there which is a shame. I understand things are tight at restaurants right now though so will try give it another chance soon.

Sunday Brunch with the family It was a little warm out. Miami in June. But inside dining was oddly poorly lit or dark even. Suzie was great! The Crab benedict was the best thing we had.

We return to Nave after the pandemia (it was actually our last restaurant before the lockout) and I am pleased to report that it is even better than before! Outstanding service and amazing food. We recommend the crab toast and the gnudi appetizer and both pastas were amazing. To close our, the banana bread pudding was incredible. Will be back again soon.

Great service, pretty good food, but a terrible unapproachable small wine list of unknown brands and generally pricey stuff. Wanted to get a bottle but ended up not buying one.

We ordered a whole fish and the half raw fish inside. They took the fish to bake more and it took forever for them to bring the fish cooked properly.
We ordered a noodle from the matriciana and it was very spicy. Detail: the arrabiata pasta is the one with peppery sauce.
The waiter was solicitous and polite all the time.

What made me uncomfortable was that none of the waiters were wearing masks. Unless they let us know somehow that they are all vaccinated it is too early on the pandemic for that. I will not return until they clarify their policy.

The staff was incredible! Everyone worked together as a team. We were treated like the only diners even though all tables were filled. One of the best service experiences from start to finish, including recommendations & checking in to see if we needed or wanted anything else. Our glasses were always full, the staff friendly & attentive without being smothering. Wonderful experience!

So disappointing. We love Ariete and expected so much more from Navé on my dad’s birthday. Only writing this review in the hopes that these issues will be corrected because Michael Beltran is so much better than this. Firstly the extremely annoying jazz music in the dining room was way too loud—it forced us to yell across the table to have a conversation so everything started off on the wrong foot right from the start. The cocktails were very good, though. We had the oysters and they were amazing. Really incredible. The other appetizers were awful. The steak tartare had mayonnaise in it. I mean, no. Just no. It was totally bland and was served on a large toasted piece of bread that was impossible to cut, so sharing was difficult, but that wasn’t really a problem since no one even wanted to eat it/share it on account of the mayo. We also had the bucatini amatriciana as an app and the sauce was bitter and bland. Pasta was not al dente. The grouper was cooked well but the sauce was totally boring and soupy—the whole dish was boring and wet. The pappardelle with beef shank sugo also totally bland. It wasn’t really a sugo (sauce), it was more like chunks of flavorless beef with soggy (not al dente) noodles on top. The osso bucco was also bland and the risotto underneath it was also super bland and boring. Everything needed salt, needed flavor in general. Last, the desserts were just okay. I don’t understand why this meal was so bad and the meal we had a few weeks ago at Ariete was so good. Here’s hoping for a better meal next time.

I would have liked more appetizers to choose. We had a salad to start which was great but our fish entrees came with salad.

The setting and ambiance was good. Our waitress was excellent. However the food was not good and at the prices charged here you expect something special. I ordered my favorite dish, Pasta cacio e pepe, and barely recognized it. It was also the size of an appetizer portion, although listed as a main and priced accordingly.
The appetizers, clams, were OK but nothing special.
Not worth the money or the trip.

The food is unique and very good; the waiter was incredibly knowledgeable and pleasant; hosts were meh; nice outdoor seating area, though music is on the surprisingly loud side; it's on the pricey side, but not outrageous for the quality of the food.

We came to celebrate my husbands birthday and we were met with fantastic service, an overall beautiful night. The food was delicious. We gorged ourselves, but on when you do on the most high quality food, it’s 1000% worth it.
We tried every single desert and it was just as amazing as the rest of the meal.
Was a very delightful time overall
