    The restaurant is very esthetically pleasing. The staff were somewhat friendly when we arrived and our server started off very nice but seemed to ignore us after our appetizers. They did surprise our friend with a special occasion treat which was nice and free chips and salsa as we were guests of the hotel. The food was just okay for the price and there isn’t a lot of variety. Two of our guests did get sick immediately after eating there. I probably wouldn’t return.

    Parking is extremely difficult due to streets being blocked, and valet was full. Food was good and ambiance was energetic - very Miami. The service was good too. Emphasis on good.

    Restaurant let us know last minute about road closures which were a nightmare. Finally got there and valet was $27 (before tip) for the 90 minutes we were there. Food was pricey, which I’d expect from a place like this, but was pretty decent. Not phenomenal by any means. Not a lot of options. Other than the ambiance, no real reason to return.

    Serena rooftop is located at Moxy. It was cute and the noise level was moderate. We were seated near two fans which was fine. However, it was so close to this large cemented beam that when the sun goes down you can’t see and you can easily trip and fall and get hurt. The service was extremely slow. Our waitress was nice but the actual service was slow. We the tuna tostada it was ok but not worth the price. We also got the chicken enchiladas and the sauce was off or maybe it was the cheese and it was not edible. The rice and beans with it were good. The drinks were good. Overall it was ok. Not worth the price. The view and ambiance was nice however, won’t dine again.

    Great food. Guacamole was fresh and very good. Pork tacos tasted great but only get 2 small ones. Live music and ambiance was a hit. Mariachi was an unexpected plus. Only negative was service took a long time

    2nd time coming in the past two weeks and I regret it. Was sat down and server never reached table for over 10+mins, restaurant was not filled at the time we were sat. We decided to leave after 12mins due to the fact there was no type of acknowledgment to at least let us know that someone will be right with us. No water service was even provided. Beautiful venue, service keeps letting it down.

    Was never able to actually make it to the restaurant. The hotel valet wouldn't park my car unless I paid a minimum of $40 (preferably more) in cash up front. He said that was a convenience fee for him since he was busy and didn't count as payment or the tip.

    The place is cute and has nice ambiance. Food was very over priced for what and how much you got. You expect it to be a lot better for the price but there’s not much flavor to any of it and you don’t get a lot. The drinks we average.

    Went to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary here and it was great! It wasn’t a crowded night but service was fast and friendly. The food was so good we had the shrimp ceviche, steak, and fish tacos with churros for dessert. Everything was so tasty and flavorful definitely will be back.

    Was not able to dine. Reservation was made for 10:15 and I arrived at 10:30pm. Tried getting in contact with Host Stand to advise running late due to traffic closure but there was no answer. Once we arrived noticed there was no host. As we got to the bar as we sat ourselves bartender advised that the kitchen was closed. Not sure then why there was an available slot at 10:30pm. Overall was looking forward to dining. This initial experience left a bad taste especially when coming from the service industry.

    Mother’s Day. I took my mom to have lunch at this place. I was hoping to have a great time with many options to pick from. The menu only had 4 plates, the drinks were… ok. The service was poor even tho the place wasn’t packed/full. Very expensive for what we got. Not coming back.
