    Waited over an hour to order food. Our groups food did not come out together. Food was also missing, we brought this to the waiters attention but it took an hour to get missing items. Took another hour to get bills and pay to leave. Overall brutal experience

    Wasn’t no point of reservations and paying to reserve where you want to eat because they still didn’t have a table ready when our party got there & told us to hang out around the bar or sit outside when i reserve inside , food wasn’t the best .. the drinks was good though!

    Playa overbooked their reservations. Everyone that came they attempted to have them seated outside in the front which isn’t even connected to the restaurant. No decor or music or anything that is remotely advertised. Finally we were offered a seat at the bar. Someone explained they were having a private event and also waiting for an after party from a concert nearby. Again, not my problem as they accepted our reservation and many others who we turned away or walked away after being offered the “overflow” section. We were never acknowledged or greeted at the bar so after 25 minutes we left. Never again!

    Made reservations for 9 pm because someone insisted the nightlife there was an experience. Upon arrival, we were given two choices a table by the front door where everyone could walk by and take pictures or a booth that was way in the back away from everything. The wait time for a table up front was 45 minutes to an hour so we took the booth. It doesn’t make sense to have reservations but being seated away from everything. The host at the front door had an attitude but we ignored it. Overall we will not be going back to this establishment.

    They sat us in the VERY back where the other waiters & waitresses were rolling silverware (we were the only table seated back there). When we asked to move they said they could only offer us outdoor seating. The waiter we had was very rude and impolite. Definitely will NOT be visiting this establishment again.

    I had the seafood pasta - the seafood and pasta were both over-cooked. It was so bad that I only ate a few bites before letting them take it away. The server saw that I didn’t eat it but didn’t ask why and didn’t offer to make it better. I paid full price. I’ll never return.

    I was so excited to come here after seeing amazing tik tok reviews. I booked my reservation very far in advance for this. Upon arrival I was told I could not enter due to having my digital camera in my purse (we came from a sight seeing boat tour) I had no intentions to photograph inside the restaurant. I checked open table and my reservation policies and there was nothing about cameras not being allowed. I asked if I could leave it with the hostess she said no and offered no solutions mind you we came in an uber as we are traveling from different states so I had no where to leave it and the only option given to us was to leave. I ended up paying the security to hold it for me. Upon entering the vibe was beautiful and lively. The hostess began to seat us at a table in the main room where there were lights an music. Another customer proceeded to tell her that she was told she could have that table so then we were moved to a back room which was next to bathrooms with little lighting and we were unable to be near music or anything going on in the main room. Mind you- there were atleast 5-6 open tables in that main room the entirety of our visit. Hostess was very rude and unaccommodating. The food was good I have no complaints there and our server was nice. It did take over an hour for our food to come though from the time we ordered and it was not very busy. I am super disappointed that I didn’t get to experience the vibe and fun I thought I was in for. I will not be returning and will not recommend this establishment to anyone due to atmosphere, attitudes, and all around experience.

    The majority of the guests were young women. There were not a lot of men dining at this establishment. The food and drink prices were surprisingly expensive, definitely overpriced.

    This review is based on a night experience on a Tuesday @ 10 pm. There is a $25 pp deposit that goes back to you if you arrive to your reservation. First and fore most the dress code listed is false advertising. My fiancé and I showed up dressed for an elegant dinner and the attire worn was definitely club wear, sneakers, flip flops. Pretty much everything they tell you NOT to wear was worn. Hosts were not welcoming at all, you may not bring your camera in which they do not list on the site as a rule. We were not greeted by our waiter or served even a glass of water until almost 20 minutes into our reservation. Waiter was kind but fairly busy due to them only having 3 waiters amongst the full establishment who also had to wait the bottle service tables as well. Considering this is not an upscale setting, the food was fairly overpriced in my opinion. The cook did a good job but again the fact that there are people back to back standing right over your table while you’re trying to eat dinner is ridiculous no matter what time of day. This turns into a club pretty much at night, which if you’re in the mood for that it seemed okay. There is no dance floor more so like tables to purchase bottles and have bottle service come to you. They have tiny tables at the front entrance right next to the bar where they seat you to eat which I disliked because everyone who came in swiped right next to our table. Not enough space at all. The bathroom was dark and not clean. This was not a great experience at all, I would say to come before 10 to get an okay service but I can’t say I will recommend to anyone. Wish it was a better experience.

    It was way over rated, we left the Queen to go there thinking it was going to be better, only thing I can say is skip it and save you money. Definitely over rated and priced for what you get. Up there with one of the worst restaurants we have eaten at.

    Food was overpriced and the quality was poor. $25 for 6 wings, 3 flats and 3 drums, is ridiculous. Also, $23 for four pieces of shrimp is ridiculous. I will not recommend.

    My experience wasn’t bad, however i put down a $175 deposit for a table of 7 (bc that’s the restaurants policy of $25pp) and never received it back! Mt card was ultimately charged for the deposit and they never returned it, after receiving an email saying it was being reversed.

    Not a very welcoming staff. Was not greeted upon entry, we waited about 10 minutes before having to ask the bartender where the host was as they were crowded in front of the television just chatting away. Our waitress could careless about what we wanted and needed at our table. I had to speak to two different waitresses to get our waitresses attention. She made me want to leave my own birthday dinner! The food; however, was very delicious and came out at a reasonable time. The music was also very soothing while waiting for our meal. If you come a little later, after 10pm and seemingly buy a bottle (spend a lot of money) they'll give you the standard deserved treatment. You can find better quality food and great music at a better place and price in Miami don't waste your money here!

    My first time ever going and yes I would definitely be returning !!! I went on Valentine’s Day I had reservations but I was running late called which it did take some time for them to answer but thank god they answered and I was able to get a later time and still have my seat inside! I would definitely recommend doing a reservation you will not be disappointed, But not only that the place inside is so beautiful they have it clean and the staff is so nice and attentive, and the food!!! Was 10/10 so good the fried rice was better than any hibachi restaurant I ever been to lol and the lobster mac and cheese excellent , the cocktail I had was good not that strong but get you feeling good , the music and atmosphere in there is just lit they place all the jams literally! Old school throw backs and all they have it playing. It is pricey but worth it in my opinion just have your pockets ready because your going to want to spend lol

    Atmosphere is great. Don't choose this spot for an intimate dinner this is more of a vibe go out and have fun type of deal which is perfectly fine. Music is bumping with nothing but bangers and the food was great. Took a while to get our food and during the time it didn't seem like there were too many waiters on the floor. Overall I loved it and would most definitely recommend it.

    If I could give them 0 stars I would. They absolutely ruined my husbands birthday. We flew from out of town and made reservations at the restaurant (that we paid for in advance) but we weren’t even let in. Upon arrival we were automatically greeted outside the door with a rude security guard. He didn’t even greet us. The first thing he said was we can’t take our camera inside (my husband and I are YouTubers and we Vlog). We then said we don’t want any issues and we’ll put it up and we won’t record but we are from out of town and drove a Uber here. We did not want to catch an Uber back to our hotel (which wasn’t that close) to put our camera up and then miss our reservations. I told him we’re here for my husband’s birthday and he said I don’t care it’s our policy, but yet we did not see anything about that on their website so how are tourist supposed to know? He just kept saying he doesn’t care and the female host was just standing there letting him talk to us very rudely. I guess he had a change in heart after going back and forth and then told us that he’ll hold the camera in his bag outside of the restaurant (which we did not trust at all) until we are done eating and to make sure we give him a good tip afterwards. We couldn’t believe what we were hearing and I just looked at the host like, this can’t be acceptable…and she didn’t say a word. So basically long story short, after we were greeted so rudely and told us that we can’t bring out camera in AT ALL because it’s “company policy” he eventually in a way tried to extort us (guess company policy went out the window) and PAY HIM to let him hold our camera for a few hours or else there was no way we were going in. So we left. I will NEVER be back and he needs to be fired because he was too comfortable with saying that in front on the host so I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s done that to multiple customers.

    Took a while to be greeted. Then took about 30-45 minutes for drinks after we ordered. Also ran out of stuff so orders had to be changed. Food came out about 30-40minutes after drinks. Didn't feel very welcoming and we were their to celebrate a birthday.

    The scene was warm, inviting and sexy. I loved the lighting, music and overall atmosphere. The food was excellent. Cooked to perfection, flavorful and fresh. The drink I had was the Playa Playa and it was mixed perfectly. I highly recommend people visit this spot. You won’t be disappointed.

    Plan a birthday dinner for my mom, for her last night in miami really excited to experience this restaurant, was not greeted and when finally recognized and seated, service quality was poor and felt ignored, were only two other tables (which already had food) never was approached by waiter, other workers sitting around the bar, had to ask to be serve after already being there 30+ mins felt like my time and reservation fee was waisted. So we just got up and left and went somewhere time and money was appreciated. Ruin the night for sure. Beautiful atmosphere for pictures but never had a chance to get the full experience.

    From the time we arrive everyone from the manager on down to the waiters, we’re very mean, and rude, absolutely dismissive towards my dinner party. The waiter kept slamming and cups at the table. When you asked him a question or requested silverware it took forever for us to get it. The ambience was beautiful. The food was good but I would never go back and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
