Balkan style
When we came up with the idea to open a Serbian restaurant in Miami Beach, we were set on a couple of things. We wanted to offer our guests a warm and relaxing environment where they can feel at home and we wanted to introduce them to a Balkan cuisine that’s rich not only in flavor, but in tradition as well. We invite you to take a gourmet history tour and discover why are more and more people in Miami Beach falling in love with Serbian food. Spicy and unique dishes like the Mediterranean Pljeskavica, Goulash, and Cevapi will activate all your senses while eating. Of course, a meal is not complete without a glass of our premium Rakija brandy. Just remember to sip and enjoy.

Overall we had a good time. The food was good and the drinks strong. I reserved a table for 4 for my nieces 21st birthday on Open table. I specified it was her 21st Birthday on the reservation but I guess it didn’t come through. As we were leaving a Birthday celebration was taking place, I wish they would have done that for my niece. I spent a little over $230 on 4 drinks and dinner for four. We ordered their grill platter for 4 and the waitress asked if we wanted salad or fries with it. We assumed it was part of their dinner for four but it was all charged separately. It came with 2 huge burger patties, sausage, chicken breast pieces, some other meat, onions and sauces. The cucumber, tomato salad with feta was my favorite. The Caesar and house salad were ok as well. The basket a fries came in some fluffy cream sauce that was really good. The waitress was not very attentive but it still managed to make it work.

Third Time here. Food is Excellent! Service is great! Vibe and decor is awesome! Prices are decent for the portion size.
Only suggestion: Play some Balkan Music during the day, not only American music.

Our server wasn’t the greatest. We were not warned when we ordered water that it would be a $7 bottle of water and we should have asked for water. The hookah didn’t stretch that far. Asked for medium lamb chops came well done. I was excited to come here left very disappointed. Couldn’t hear over the loud music.

Drinks were watered down and had no taste. They turned the lights off on us as we ate and used our hookah. Don’t go here there are better places to eat on the strip

The food was good and generously portioned even though it was from the Miami Spice menu.. Service was good. The rap music was so loud, we had to shout to each other and to the wait staff. We were told we couldn't have tap water "because of the open bar", which as residents, we had never heard of that, and it's possibly illegal. Also, even thought we told the hostess on arrival that we had reservations, she never asked for our name. We had to ask the waiter to check us in, otherwise we would have been marked as a "no-show" on Open Table.

The menu was a bit disappointing as they didn't have a lot of traditional Serbian fare- but rather a lot of generic pasta/American dishes that looked unappealing.

The Shopska salad I had was fresh and a good size.

The service was sub par, and we were charged an 18% gratuity automatically despite being a table of only 2.

We visited in Feb 2019, We were very impressed with Svetlana’s service, quality of food & whole ambience. We came back knowing there are plenty of choices in Miami. We brought 2 extra people for Valentine’s Day dinner who also enjoyed It so much. We came back for breakfast the next morning & I loved the burek too. We hope to visit again unless you bring it to Australia first.
Thanks for 2 fabulous evenings spent at Rakija Lounge. Fatima Todorovski
