There was unfortunately a very long wait the day I went to their location. I think they were the busiest kiosk due to their popularity so it's understandable. Otherwise, the food was great!

Too expensive for small portions. By the time you've ordered enough food to be satisfied, you could have eaten at a 5 star high end restaurant. Do wish them well!

Hands down some of the best sushi of my life. The tuna pizza with the truffle oil was the star of the show but we didn't have a single bit that wasn't delish.

The first time was great, the second and third not so much, they were rather O.K. I think Pubbelly Rest Always start with a good idea and great service but overtime it's just gets O.K.

Very good Japanese/Sushi, small outdoor area where you can view the mall entrance and nice indoor dining room, somewhat pricy

The service left a lot to be desired. The waiter took 15 minutes to come take our order, the food took 40 minutes to come out and it came out wrong. Quite the disaster. I would send my guests somewhere else.

The service was great, but the sushi and fish quality were very low. The waiter was kind enough to comp one of the meals. The black cod was the one saving grace.

Whatever you can say about the food, which is good, the service was awful. We felt like we were being held hostage. They seem to be running 2 restaurants which are next door to each other rather than focus on them separately, the service suffers. Unless the service improves I don’t see how they can stay in business. Several tables left before their meal came.

Our last dinner during ABMB was deliciously spent at Pubbelly Noodle Bar. The casual spot stands out from the field of food sharing spots in South Beach. The corn Soup Dumplings - heavenly, the Shortribs,FoieGras combination and the sushi were all great. The mason jar dessert was a delicious, light surprise. At the end of our meal we were all satisfied yet not over-full. Perfect for sharing. We’ll return again and again!

We travelled over to the restaurant, after confirmation request emails, to find it was closed and never opens on Tuesdays despite restaurant information to the contrary. Complete waste of time! We have since had no email or call to apologise.

ZERO STARS for both Pubbelly Noodle and Open Table ! I had a confirmed 7:30pm reservation for four last night, Dec 4, 2018. When we got there the restaurant was closed. I did not get an email or a phone call to tell us the restaurant would be closed. The door was open, there were a few employees inside, but chairs were on top of tables, lights off, clearly not open for business. No one cared that we had reservation. The four us us walked around the corner to NaiYaRa Thai where we spent nearly $300 on dinner. PB’s loss. If anyone in Mgmt. from either PubBelly or OpenTable reads this I would like an apology and explanation. I have been to all of the PB venues many times and have over 20,000 points on OT, so I am not a random wide-eyed tourist. Very disappointed, upset, and embarrassed in front of our invited friends. OT and the restaurant has my phone, text and email, Why wasn’t I contacted ? If member doesn’t show up or cancel a reservation there is a reprimand, what happens when the tables are turned?

Overall it was pretty good; ok. I had wanted to try this place for a while, so I may have hyped it up in my head, and it ended up disappointing a little bit. The spicy beef gyoza were amazing, and so were the crab bao buns. But then again, I don't think I have ever had a bao bun in my life that wasn't good. I ordered something called Veil Brains which not only didn't quite meet the description (in my mind) but it was absolutely nauseating. The ramen was good, but there were SO little noodles in my bowl that the $18 cost seemed highly unreasonable. I mean, do you have any idea how much ramen I can buy with $18 at the grocery store?? I was left unsatisfied. The rest---ambiance, service, and the sushi items we ordered from next door were all great.

This place was delicious!!! I had the corn soup angelotti and it was a revelation! This place had been listed on few recommended for vegetarians lists, however, it did not have many actual vegetarian options for my partner. But meatlovers rejoice, because the meat options are perfect!!

After viewing so many reviews, I decided to give this spot a try. However it fell short of any wow factors. The food was not good, we tried about 4 different dishes, from noodles, to sushi, to rolls and it was disappointing. The service was slow even on a slow night. Would I come back, NO.

We went with a large group of 7 at 8 PM on a Friday and it was about half full. So I expected the service to be on point. While he knew his menu very well and was great to talk to, I feel like we weren't attended to enough. However, the food was very tasty. We had a variety of items from the ramen, baos, sushi rolls, robata items. All were executed well and had great flavor. I recommend this place since you have the ability to order from PB Sushi as well. It's a nice location on the beach and seemed to have street parking.

A wonderful twist on traditional Asian food. We ordered a variety of dishes (sushi, ramen, dim sum) and were blown away by each one. Highly recommend the truffles corn and short rib dumplings.

Went for the Miami Spice 2018 dinne menur. Loved all 9 courses of the meal with many outstanding ones, including dessert. Filling but not overwhelming. Our waiter (Roni) was very attentive and outstanding at describing each one of the dishes as they came out. We sat indoors and -while music was great- it was perhaps a bit loud to carry on a conversation. Still, a neighborhood gem we highly recommend.

We went for Miami Spice and were initially sat at the Pubbelly Sushi space next door but had that corrected once we placed our order. The food is unique and more Asian fusion than anything a purist might be looking for, but fits the bill. Prices are on the higher side and there was a bit of an up-sell on sake. But, all in all, I'd return as they really know how to mix traditional and non-traditional flavors.

Staff and service was great. Very attentive! Small portions added up quick. I enjoyed the rabbit pasta, but the meat could have been anything. The Pubbelly Ramen had plenty of large pork belly pieces that made up for the boring broth and small amount of ramen noodles.
The shortrib gyoza were outstanding! But small...
Overall, very nice.

We came to Miami for a Wynewood cycle bar tour and a Duck boat tour . Our tour guide from Duck boat highly recommended Pubbelly and the Miami spice menu. This place was phenomenal! It was so different. We are from Alabama and Mississippi and this was our #1 favorite thing we did while in Miami! Just go people! You will love it! Ask for Vanessa! She is beautiful and fun!

Food was great as we went for Miami Spice. We were a little thrown off when we found out we had to choose for the whole table. The only complaint I have is who thought it was a good idea to serve ramen family style? That, in itself should earn them a no star.
