I think this place is the restsurant ive been to the most in Miami. Absolutely love it. Food excellent and forever changing.. the kitchen table great place to watch the kitchen in action. The wine selection is different and unlike other places in Miami very reasonably priced which is important!! Always good to see the same staff obviously a good business !! Look forward to visiting again very soon!!

Obra es un lugar en donde puedo ir 1000 veces y en cada una de ellas encuentro algo nuevo y delicioso. Sin duda alguna uno de los mejores lugares para comer en Miami.

Seated at the kitchen bar which was fine. Menu was somewhat limited, which to me created an expectation that each dish would be flawless due to the repetition. My wife and I had the brussel sprouts appetizer which was good. She had the chicken, which was so salty I would have had to send it back but because she doesn't eat the skin, she was able to eat it. Her chicken came with a side of califlower which was good. I ordered the branzino which was accompanied by sauted vegetables and was a well-put-together and quite tasty dish. We each had a glass of wine but it took a while for me to get a refill and by the time I did, my meal was just about finished. Overall the service left alot to be desired, which irked me when I saw that an 18% tip was automatically added to my bill. Overall, there was too much inconsistency to make this a place to recommend.

Wonderful presentation, freshness and flavors in each unique dish. We are in Brickell for a month every February/March. This has been our favorite restaurant for 3 years running. Can’t say this about a lot others in the Miami/Miami Beach area. We eat out 5 out of 7 nights.

Food was mostly excellent. Service was poor, distant, disinterested. Meals were served 15 minutes apart. The fourth meal (chicken) came out AFTER the other three meals were eaten and the table cleared. And to top it off, the chicken was considerably undercooked. Zero apologies from staff. Zero offer of a complimentary coffee, dessert, etc. I would not return —there is great food at other restaurants in Miami that comes with good service.

Unreal good food. Cafeteria decor (intentional i know) so fancy friends won’t be impressed. Maybe best at lunch in brickell. We came for dinner. Delicious cocktails too.

Very good food but for the price the service is not good. We had to ask for things many times as they kept forgetting things that we asked for such as straws. Then we realized gratuity was included which is probably part if the problem. The foods took 30-40 minutes, which would have been fine if the service was better.

Every time I take my mom and kids out is a special occasion. I’ve been at least five times, this place is really good, and it could be a nice spot for a date or just a great spot for a great lunch with friends.
Food and service amazing as always, only reason not 5 stars all the way is this: I get that there is no kid menu, many places don’t have kid menu, but charging the same amount of a lunch special for a little kid (4 years old) is not cool. Not a deal breaker, definitely will come back and with my kids and mother again, just my personal opinion.

I’d definitely recommend sitting at the counter. The cooks are working at an incredibly high level and watching them added greatly to the meal.

We absolutely loved our dinner tonight. We were not sure what to order, so we tried 5 different entrees, three apps. We were eight for eight, everything was outstanding. The staff was super nice as well. I will be back for sure.

I sat at the chefs table. I enjoyed watching the chefs work with each other. They moved fluidly as if they were attached. Loved the food!

Yet another Miami restaurant with interesting top quality food meant to be shared and brought out when it's ready. Hamachi tiradito with crispy arepa in a mango mezcal sauce was really good. The fish was pristine.A roasted burrata and mushroom skillet was also exceptionally good.
Crispy brussel sprouts with a cucumber and Jicama salad with shashito sauce was also very tasty. Shishito sauce is a trend I'm noticing and a good one at that. Another trend is plating in just half the bowl and leaving the other half empty which makes for a dramatic look.
Sea urchin and fried eggs with thin plantain fries was not as successful, the sea urchin got lost in the other flavors and there was something very salty as well. Mussels with charred green sauce and fried Yucca had a very good flavor. There were no spoons so we used the mussel shells for the sauce which worked quite well for sharing this dish. The whole red snapper with avocado coleslaw was very good as well but a bit challenging to share with four people. It was a nice night and rather than taking an Uber we enjoyed a 20 minute walk there and back. The food and weather in Miami is spoiling us.

The food was OK, but not great. Starters were quite tasty. The main courses were disappointing though. The sea bass was put in the Josper grill for too short of a time, and the deep fried snapper was “cooked to death” unfortunately. In addition, the vegies to come with the sea bath were a bad fit! Broccoli instead of green asparagus didn’t do it for me. The service was pretty bad as well, the lady let us wait a long time before we could order, and she started serving the main before we had even finished the starters. Moreover, there was a guy reshuffling tables without taking away the bone china and hence killing a few plates which created quite some noise. and finally, the cost tag for this type of food simply was too high. So not an overly pleasant experience unfortunately!
