I'm not going to make this longer than it has to be.

The services provided by David were great, friendly and graceful with several suggestions. At one point someone that seemed to be the sommelier came by and was nice too.

The Mac and Cheese is one of the worst I have ever eaten at a restaurant, it's watered down, didn't have enough cheese and tasted like a boxed one. The French soup was super salty and had very little cheese with a toast on top instead of small pieces of bread and tons of cheese like it's supposed to be. For the main course we ordered the Chateaubriand (medium) to share, it was very VERY salty, a little overcooked (more like medium well) and hence a bit dried out. We also got a side of Morel Mushroom Risotto which David recommended and it was the only really good dish.

My girlfriend and I go every Friday to different restaurants for our "date night" and normally we spend 3+ hours. Here we left after 1.5 hours and were very dissatisfied...

This is our second visit to Publix Square. Food was delicious, although the mashed potatoes were cold. There was a live jazz band that was good, but very loud. Our server was great, but the support staff needs improvement. Serving dishes were left on the table and we had to move them to a chair to make space. We were disappointed the sushi chef was not there since we were looking forward to trying some.

I was looking forward to going to this restaurant after reading all the reviews. My husband had the French onion soup which was really good I had the crab-cake and they were awesome !!!!! We had the churrasco steak with mashed potatoes and a side of mac & cheese... mashed potatoes were cold abs Mac and cheese well I didn’t like it at all ... the steak was fantastic
I had the mushroom risotto wasn’t fully cooked but the taste was very good!!!
The server saw we didn’t eat our food and went to his manager and got the food credited!!!!!
went above and beyond even though We said it was OK I would definitely try the restaurant again hopefully next time I get a better experience but the taste even though the food wasn’t to what I expected it was fantastic

I would consider Public Square (pka Shula’s 347) a ‘go to’ restaurant for dinner with family, friends or date night. Great location in south miami. The menu has a nice variety of appetizers (the bread is a must have), main courses and deserts. Special call out to the filet bites and the risotto ! Service was terrific !

Lovely Valentine’s Day dinner. My boyfriend and I really loved the everything about our experience. The restaurant followed covid precautions and had our table cleaned and ready on arrival. We sat outside which I was concerned would be too noisy but it was actually a beautiful night for it. We started with the milk rolls and man you have to try them at least once. The rosemary honey butter was a nice touch. Portion size were a little on the small side but the churrasco and sweet potato I had was amazing. My boyfriend tried spicy tuna and dragon rolls. Had thought they were delicious. We opted to not have dessert mostly because nothing peaked our interest. Overall great service from all. Will be back

We celebrated Valentine's Day in a group of 6 women. Everything we ordered was delicious but we were hot the entire time, as if we sat inside the kitchen. We did request the temperature to be lowered and it helped, but we still had to fan ourselves to stay comfortable. I'm not sure if it the entire restaurant is always like that, but I'd avoid sitting at the booths near the bathrooms.

Brunch was a little bumpy. We had an early, but the restaurant did not seemed to be staffed sufficiently. Our server was nice, but was overwhelmed since most of his tables were seated at the same time.
Food came out cold. Had been there for dinner the month before and had a much better experience. Brunch is not there thing.

The service was really good; the waiter was attentive and helpful, and the place is really nice. The food wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t amazing either. The ribeye I ordered was undercooked, and they promptly replaced it. Unfortunately the new one was on the salty side. They gave us a complimentary dessert just for the issue. In general, I think it’s too expensive, at least the steak, for what you’re getting. On the other hand, the risotto my wife ordered was great.

Came to give another try last Sunday for the brunch not a big selection and no soups, but some good entrees. I ordered Steak and eggs asked for sunny side up (runny) they came over cooked the expediter or waiter should of seen it and not sent it out so they mad me some new eggs these came back over easy. So I sent them back. Waiter came back with new eggs and one was runny the other dry. "does anyone know how to make sunny side eggs? I just gave up and ate the one egg and the cold steak which by the way is $44 if I'm not wrong. I can't understand an upscale place like this not once did the manager come and express any concerns or apologies. I really don't know if I will be back.

We were acknowledged upon entering the restaurant and promptly seated at a table outside as we had reserved. The server came over immediately to bring us physical menus, they did not have a digital menu. Our order came out timely and the food tasted fine. After we were finished with our meal the server immediately brought us the bill even though we had not finished our drinks. The server came by 3 times before we had a chance to look at the bill. Needless to say, we felt rushed.

First time at Public Square, overall impression is good.

Andres was our waiter and he was on point, but a little overwhelmed with the number of tables he was serving, so I cannot fault him for that. We had the milk rolls and crab cakes for appetizers. Milk rolls were delicious, but the crab cakes were a bit fishy. The Ribeye steaks were cooked to perfection and were delicious. The sides were truffle fingerling potatoes and grilled asparagus. Potatoes needed something extra, the truffle oil was not enough to really make them delicious.

The food and drinks are excellent at Public Square. The Managers are friendly and
and first rate. The servers are excellent, particularly Helen and David (the Legend).
We always sit outside, which is comfortable and pleasant. My ladyfriend and I plan on
dining at Public Square at least once a week.
