    The view saves this place. Hostesses were beyond miserable and not at all willing to help. Left me waiting for 10 minutes outside while she figured out a seat only for me to find her on the phone. Food is not nothing special and over priced. Waiter was friendly and the view nice.

    Host and hostess we’re not accommodating to let us sit near the window when our party was there saying it was reserved for another couple. On the phone they would not let us book a specific table or area. Our dish came In an iron skillet which was not hot and the fish was bite size and overcooked. The whole dish had 4 pieces of shrimp for 2 people. The crispy fish was delicious and hot as were the scallops. Food was expensive for nothing. Definitely feel like it is a tourist trap.

    This is the perfect place to go for an amazing sunset view over the bay, and we have been many times but not for a few years. The food was heavy on sugar for just about everything (from the sauce on the ribeye steak, brussel sprouts, which were nice and crispy but also quite sweetened, snapper, which was on top of a very sugary coconut orzo so it was hard to avoid the sweetness, and even the roast vegetables and the rice with shrimp and fish had an excess of sweetness. So if you like your food sweet, it might be worth the hefty price tag. The sunset was marvelous, however, so we did enjoy the cocktails and scenery.

    The service was rather slow. I know it’s a busy day and time (Saturday at 5:30 PM) but that is more reason to add extra people to help at that time. We got seated pretty fast. The drinks came timely, followed by bread. However, we finished the first glass of drinks and bread and no one has come to take our order and worse, the appetizer that we ordered as soon as we got seated was still not served at this point. If not for the beautiful view outside, we would have been very upset.

    Server was lovely, but single focused, instead of multi tasking all of her tables, so service was slow. Most food was great. Crab cake huevos rancheros, the crab cake was very dry and the dish was not spicy at all as advertised on menu. Overall a great dining experience and would still come back.

    Great experience overall, this place has one of the best views in Miami. Family friendly with enough room for strollers, plenty of families had their kids with them. The food & service was great, we had the brunch menu with bottomless mimosas. Will definitely go back and try to get some night views next time.

    It was my birthday….tho they don’t do the whole singing I enjoyed it. When I say food was great!! The food was great!!!! The staff was great!! My server was Darwin and when I say he did great, he did great!! He’s so familiar with the menu and recommending food. I loved it I had the Chilean sea bass (which could take a little salt for my liking) with mashed sweet plantains.

No bad choices with the food- Chilean Sea Bass on smashed plantains is scrumptious. Recommend sharing. Try the sticky pudding for dessert! The experience is made all the better with the incredible wait staff…shout out to Nicole and Catarina.

    Hostesses we’re snobby and rude. Wouldn’t move my table outside when there were SEVERAL open ones. We asked to move because the speaker was right in my dads ear and they said no. We’re not accommodating at all, was also a special birthday event planned for a while, rude rude rude hostesses and manager

    This restaurant is high class and romantic with excellent service. It was recommended by a local for the awesome views of the Miami skyline and it doesn’t disappoint. The food is truly gourmet and the ambiance is great for a romantic dinner for two or for have a nice dinner on a special occasion. Or if you’re like me and ended up here out of curiosity and a sense of adventure, it has great food, great views, and friendly staff!
