great spot in the middle of downtown Miami, this is my second time visiting, the first time was for lunch and this time for dinner. We tried the Crispy octopus, tuna tostada and the pork belly. This is not your regular Mexican place, it's Mexican Seafood and a great one if you are expecting regular tacos this is not your place, if you are up for trying something different and good, then visit Pez especially if you are a seafood lover.

My visit to PEZ was weird. First of all I tried to call during the day to move the reservation to one hour later and the phone WAS NOT WORKING... Can you believe a restaurant with a non working phone? I had to go to open table after contacting the restaurant via FACEBOOK. The food was absolutely delicious but the place was noisy more like a party type of place than a restaurant. The prices were fair and the service was good. Was 8 pm and a Thursday. There were people at the bar but no body else eating but us. I worked in this industry for more than 15 years and I would have the music less loud and candles in the back to make the place good for everyone.

Hola! Thanks for your review. We did not know about the faulty phone until you sent us the message; we run VOIP phones and the internet connection was bad. We will take note of the noise level when the DJ is present as well as individual lighting in the back of the dining room. Saludos!

Very very very dissapointed.
The portion sizes were absurd. The flavors just weren't there. I understand how portion sizes are at high end restaurants. But they are usually delicious. And this place is not even high end.
This was not only a third of the portion size of a high end restaurant, but also the flavor just wasn't good enough to justify going back to this place. It feels like a complete ripoff. It feels like they are doing so bad that they are trying to milk the last few customers because they know they won't be around long enough for them to come back.
We had a 3 course meal and had to go find food elsewhere afterwards. It was a party of 9 and all 9 of us left hungry. Not one of us said "my stuff was really good". All nine of us just laughed because we thought it was a joke. I support independent restaurants and I understand if they have a bad day. I do not leave bad reviews unless it is a consistently bad place. But this was not a bad day. This felt like a deliberate ripoff

We got ripped off massively, charged us $75 for three crap kids meals. Ruined the night unfortunately.

Hello, again your review is very misleading. As you are well aware, YOU ONLY PAID $25 for the three "kids meals", which were actually three 1 lb steaks made into tacos (9 tacos) per your request. We don't have beef tacos anywhere in our menu, but made them especially to accommodate your request. Regards.

The food was ok however it took over 2 hours to get our order. We have a baby and we asked the waitress for the food multiple times and they always had some bad excuses. I wouldn’t recommend it

The was a fish hook in one of the dishes and I was lucky enough not to swallow it or break a tooth --I only scraped my palate. The waitress immediately took the hook away from me to show it to the chef who came to the table to apologize. However, there was no deduction of the dish with the fish hook nor discount of any sort.

Hi Claire, thanks so much for visiting. We did not charge the octopus dish as you can see on your detailed invoice. If you need a copy emailed let us know. We also reached out to out seafood vendor and mentioned the problem, as this is very rare especially when hooks are not used for these. It had to be well inside the meat for the team not to notice it. Please see me on your next visit, I was the person that helped out with the check at the end and also one of the owners. Best,

El sabor de la comida es muy buena, te dan ganas de regresar a volver a probarla. Me gusta la idea que es un tipo de comida Mexicana con el estilo de Baja Med y los mariscos son super frescos. La coctelería es con ingredientes distintos a los que había probado y de una calidad en licores exquisita ... SUPER RECOMENDADO. VOLVERE MIL VECES MAS!

Not your traditional “Mexican” restaurant, as they only have seafood. No chips, salsa or guacamole. I thought the prices were a little high, based upon the serving sizes. However, the tacos we had were really good. I’d eat there again, but I wouldn’t go out if my way to.

BEST SEAFOOD RESTAURANT in town. While everyone else is doing the same safe dishes, these guys are innovating and doing an amazing job at it! Being from Baja myself, I can 100% testify that these flavors make me feel right back at home! Would definitely recommend to everyone.
