Location & ambiance is great. Food could definitely use some improvement. Mediterranean dishes yet not a single seafood item comes with lemon wedge.
The tuna tartare was very good. The grilled octopus, they should forget about that olive tapenade. Takes away from the taste of the meat. Grilled snapper very good size and price. Just very plain. I would recommend some salt pepper and for sure the lemon. Otherwise, I would totally come back the scenery is amazing and hopefully I can try more dishes next time

We want with friends for a Miami Spice. Had visited before for an event. Atmosphere is the best thing here with the outdoor seating (it appears that infoor seating had been eliminated and is now part of another restaurant)on the river. Service was solid, but short of excellent. Spice appetizers and mains selected were great but dessert was very disappointing. Would definitely visit again with group for occasion.

Really great venue! The view was awesome. The staff was accommodating & friendly. We ate brunch on a Sunday and we arrived right as they were opening. We had an extra person and they were able to add a chair to our table without hesitation or any additional wait time to be seated. I will be going back again!

We got lucky with our server, in reference to the service. Now the tables next to us were complaining, because how bad and slow they were. That is something they defiantly need to fix if they want to stay in business. Overall the restaurant has great ambiance and its in a great Miami location.

Typical Miami-style, overpriced, low quality, semi-fancy restaurant. Didn't even want to try it out, then I went since they were doing Miami Spice on Saturday. Little to my surprise, the Spice option was not even in the menu and we had to specially request it. Also, I am guessing when the waiter realized we were going to do Spice he served us the worst way possible. My wife ordered a salad and skirt steak: salad was plain and the skirt steak she had requested medium was not even well done, but partly carbonized. I had pork belly (good) and snapper (absolutely tasteless). Two out of the three desserts were not that good, only the macaroon was ok. Also, they automatically included a 20% gratuity (?!?!?!) after the waiter cared so little he didn't even bother refilling our waters in a steamy august Miami night. Horrible experience, will never go back here.
