Very disappointing. Food was mediocre and overpriced
Terrible experience, my girlfriend had a plastic object in her meal, tuna appetizer had no taste, atmosphere is terrible, hound children laying down on long booth seating, felt like I was at IHOP, will never go back
Tasting menu was good but timing was way off. Portions were larger than they should be for a tasting menu (translate: we were stuffed by the end of the meal), but were very tasty. Biggest problem was that the entree took 30-40 minutes after the prior course. Too long. The manager was very apologetic and comped us our drinks, but it kind of killed the experience. Like many Miami restaurants, having automatic gratuities included in your check seems to result in poor customer service.
This was our most favorite(and expensive) family dinner on our vacation!
Loved the waiters attention to the kids and us. We chose fabulous wine and indulged with the kiddos:)
Terrible service. Our food took over 70 minutes to come and was served as we were about to get up and leave. For our troubles, the waiter gave us an extra pasta dish (....?). He did have time to tell his life story about being from Italy to the table next to us (who he wasn't even serving) yet forgot to put our order in. And then ran away and had another waiter attend to our table for the rest of the evening. The restaurant decor is confused, as is the service. Price point is fair, assuming your food ever comes. Food was good for the most part but grilled octopus was rubbery. Go to Baoli instead.
Service was rushed and the food was extremely overpriced for what it was.
The food was delicious, as well as great service and nice ambiance.
Great food, great staff really professionals. Been here 5 times over the last decade and consistently great. Never disappointed
The basil tomato pasta did not the great flavors it has had in the past.
Pasta was perfectly al dente. Tastes were extraordinary!
Food was excellent , but it took almost 55 minutes for our main dish to come out. Yes I know this was Valentine’s Day but they should of told us that they were running behind before we order the food.
Alway consistent from service to food. We have been coming here for several years and this is one spot we always try to visit. It can get noisy but everyone seems to be having a good time.
For Valentines Day they were offering a special menu.
Plates are well presented and tasting wonderfully.
Everything was good.
It was a good experience.
I recommend this place to everyone.
Went to celebrate my birthday with the family. The pastas are outstanding. The Bronzino was crispy and delicious. They have a nice wine list.
I was in Miami for work and friends were traveling through coincidentally the same week. I was able to get a reservation with pretty short notice. The atmosphere was beautiful. The food was delicious and just the right portion size. I would definitely come back again.
Very noisy and staff was moving at a frenetic pace. Pace seems to be set by floor managers who looked nervous and unfocused. The speed that the all of the staff moved was really unnerving, unpleasant and distracting. Our server acted anxious and in a hurry when taking orders. Drinks took a long time as well as the entree.
We were really excited to try this place for my 40th birthday on vacation here in Miami. We arrived early for our reservation and sent to the bar because they were not ready to seat us in an EMPTY dining room where tables were preset. That meant spending an extra $20 at the bar for two drinks. After being seated we got what we thought would be a helpful, attentive waiter. He was helpful in choosing our courses or at least approving of our choices. The sommelier was helpful as well in choosing a bottle of wine. Modest by thr wine list prices, but rather high for my budget. Still it was my birthday so I felt justified in a 2009 Rosso di Montalcino. Bread service came and was very tasty. The wine was perfect and our two appetizers were delicious. One was an octopus dish and the other scallops. Between this course and our main we had an arugula salad they split for us. At this point the dining room filled up and our team of two waiters began to focus there attention elsewhere. Water service was slow, began pouring our own wine and waited awhile between salad and main. My wife's Lobster tagliatelle was very salty. No one checked back after delivering the main course. Waters were empty, my food was finished and we waited. Our table was cleared except for the wine. We had to flag someone down to get offered a dessert menu which was banal and the server who was so helpful before was dismissive. We asked for the check, it took ages to come and then ages to return. All in all very disappointed in a meal that was expensive with an autogratuity. No mention of my birthday even though I added it to my open table reservation. So I think Scarpetta falls short of my expectations of chef Scott Conant.
Management and staff go above and beyond to satisfy and attend to everyone. We had a minor issue and it was immediately resolved so a huge thank you to the management. The food is amazing! We come back time after time and Chef never disappoints! I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
We celebrated my birthday, with the entire family, and we all loved it. The Creamy Polenta was superb.
We went with the tasting menu and it did not disappoint! The food was fabulous, the service was attentive without being overbearing, and they did not scrimp on the portions. It was a meal we’ll remember for a long time!
Amazing! Great service! Excellent food! Would highly recommend!
Very elegant place with top-notch food and service.
The food and service were off the table. I ordered the Tagliatelle with Black Truffle one of my favorite dishes and the cheese overpowered the truffle. I explained this to the waiter and he said "I can understand that". The second dish was prawn - overcooked to liken baby food. We ordered an arugula salad without balsamic/sweet vinegar, and yet we received just that. When questioned, we received a polite this is what we serve. it was removed from the bill. Spoke to the gentlemen in the black suit and explained our situation assuming he may do something to assist, he said he was unaware of the order and walked away. Net - service was dismissive and food well was just not cooked correctly. The large expectation based upon the owners reputation was not realized. It was indeed a overpriced unpleasant experience. Would not recommend this restaurant. Staff training in food and service are needed to deliver an amazing experience.
Great food, great service, wonderful experience. Would highly recommend.
Food was great, and the staff was fantastic! Great Birthday dinner. Thanks
Dont waste your money people. First off , from the beginning the wine sommelier assisted me with choosing a wine and from the bat not knowing my budget recommended a $200 bottle of wine. WRONG!!! That turned me off, but I figured its Fontainbleu so its typical. Ordered the octopus for my appetizer. Was tough and inedible. Being Italian and eating pulpo my entire life, it was a disgrace to serve that piece of rubber. Second course was the short rib agnolotti. It was tasty but they were more like tortellini and the portion was so small and not one speck of short rib in the dish. Third course was duck which was tough, tasty but unedible. My husband had the filet. TERRIBLE. It was a thin filet medallion which was overcooked and tough. The menu did not state it was a tiny medallion and it was a huge disappointment. I have had food cooked better at a cheap banquet hall than this place. After that we were done. No more courses for us and money out the window. Seems like the product is cheap and the chefs need to brush up on basic rules of thumb, how not to overcook delicate items such as Octopus, duck and filet. Ridiculous!!
One meal was good. Other not so much (branzino)
The food was good but it wasn't creative. The menu was one lacking passion it seemed. Service was slow but kind. Noise level was well above average. Not unhappy but I wouldn't go again. Not a place for foodies. It tasted like decent hotel food.
Food, wine, service were great. The only knock was it was very noisy and hard to have a conversation; but it was busy and the food and wine were most important to me.
