Everything on the menu sounded so good it was hard to order! Stopped in for lunch. We ordered spicy tuna on crispy rice and hamachi sashimi with poblano peppers. The tuna dish was good but didn't blow me away. The hamachi was awful! I feel stupid not sending it back. There were 4 slices of hamachi literally swimming in soy sauce that completely overpowered the delicate fish! On top of it tasting bad it cost $17.00 for the small portion! Maybe rolls are the way to go here but I won't be back!

Low to medium quality ingredients covered in sauces to disguise the real flavor. Everything was deep fried and taste the same. Staff was very friendly-professional and vibe was decent, but food was far from the price they charge for it.

Sat outside of the restaurant as we heard it was quieter. Food was good, interesting and fun. Service was great. Only downside was that apparently they can run out of things on a Sunday. In our case it was just Ginger beer and then ginger tea, but it didn't impact the experience. Just leaving it as a heads up.

I’ve been coming back to Pubbelly for 3 years, the food is as always exceptional (thanks chefs), but the service/waiters this round were amongst the least attentive I’ve experienced in years (no greeting upon arrival, food arrived before beverages, wrong food arrived and not even an apology, but rather a “let me check w the chef it’s wrong”, waiters ran into the chair etc).
Again; the food and atmosphere is great, but the service seems to keep on sinking for every time I’m back...

They served chicken cold then put it in the microwave and heated it up and put it back. Manager didn’t find a problem with taking food I’d touched and put it back in the kitchen.

This place came highly recommended. The service was poor and very inattentive. We ordered a bottle of sake which didn’t came til after 3 dishes of food arrived, and it was warm at best. We had to search and ask someone to help us chill it. The waitress talked us out of the hamachi roll we wanted and said it wasn’t that good, we should try the yellowfin. Food was rushed out way too fast. The miso cod had many bones in it. We had to ask her to take it off of our check, which I have never done but after spending $200 I was highly disappointed and have never wanted to leave a restaurant so bad. Before we were even done trying to eat all 5-6 dishes at once she told us it was last call for dessert. I found that very rude and inhospitable.

Chaotic & noisy! Service was patchy too.
Food highlight was the pork belly which was delicious but overall very expensive for what it was (e.g $29 for a tiny miso cod seemed a bit much, likewise $10 for rice noodle with a sprinkling of cheese for the kids?!)

The dinner was tasty. We had the elote, the baby bok choy, the tostones and ceviche and the spare ribs. All so good. We also had two different desserts. Waitress was just OK. At one point we waved to her, she saw us but ignored us. She took the drink menu away even after we told her to leave it. And then took forever to reconcile the check. Would have liked the service to match the food!

For several years we have made sure to eat here at least once during our annual Miami Beach trek. It's always a fun dining experience for us. The Big Eye Tuna Roll and Butter Crab Rolls are musts. This trip we tried several new additions to the menu.. Short Rib tartar with quail egg and baby bok choy were winners. The soft shell crab roll was OK but we' didn't care for the spicy avacado sauce it came with.
Inside the restaurant is LOUD. It can be difficult to hold a conversation across the table. If the weather permits, outside is more pleasant.
We will be back next year.

The food here is EXCELLENT and is worth coming back despite the other aspects this restaurant falls short.
To start they confusedly didn’t bring us all water or chopsticks. Nothing arrived in courses and one person was watching everyone else eat bc their food didn’t come til last.
Noise level is headache loud bad inside. I’m 24 and down to party but it’s like you can’t comfortably have a conversation over the music.
Also wish they had non-sake based cocktails

We were totally ignored sitting at our table for 45 minutes. No water, menus nor acknowledgment. After searching for a manager, a waitress stoped by our table to say she would return. She never apologized for the the lack of attention and she became belligerent. Needless to say, we left Pubbelly.

As always the food is excellent, but as the evening progresses and more people arrive, the music level goes up and up, which really diminished for us the experience.
