Great experience and the highlight of our Miami stay. The food was stellar and the service was amazing. We had the entire room to ourselves and had two servers waiting on us. Thankful for the experience. When they learned it was my husband’s birthday, they gifted us with a free cake.

Honestly, I was deeply disappointed. We made a reservation for 8pm, weren’t seated on time, and I had to stand being pregnant. Once we were seated, the waiter was extremely aggressive about what to order and asking if we wanted more? We each had a filet and sides... being that I was pregnant I had to awkwardly be like no? That’s more than enough food? Once we got the steaks, I was BEYOND unimpressed, my steak was in a pile of grease, the truffle Mac n cheese was not salted whatsoever, not creamy, just gross noodles in a pile of oil, and the mashed potatoes were OK. The steak was cooked to my request, but honestly we are from NJ and the steak tasted like a low budget steak at Applebee’s or wherever. The waiter was not attentive, kept taking my straw, never once checked on us... the whole experience was a waste of money, and I felt bad for recommending to my husband that we go there. Absolutely disgusting and would not recommend it to anyone. I never write bad reviews but it was just awful. Wish I had stayed home and ordered something for $50 instead of wasting $240 on a meal I could have gotten at a low bottom chain restaurant. Then to TOP it off some family brought in their dog???? Which had no service badge on and the dog proceeded to bark and growl inside the entire meal? Horrible horrible. Like truly I felt like I was a trashy restaurant.

The ocean view is phenomenal!
We ordered Rib-eyes, Filet Mignon w. Fried lobster and Angry Shimp as a starter, that's awesome.
The whipped potatoes also amazed us too and we would like to try the enhancements next time.

Extremely overpriced, good food and average service, lots of people smoking cigars and blowing smoke on your face which is a shame as the view form outside is fantastic and would be better to be breathing fresh air as opposed to cigar smoke!

The ambiance and aesthetic is very nice. You are pretty much paying for the view and the presentation of the food. Ordered the Tomahawk and the presentation was very nice but the steak itself didn’t have much flavor- except for the crunchy ends. I expected the potatoes to taste like good steak seasoning but it only tasted like steak fat. I had some of the baked potatoe and it was delicious. The macaroni was also tasty!

We celebrated my Bday. It was the worst service ever. We had to wait for ....water ....we had to wait and remind the waiters ...for bread.... it was unbelievable with waiting for everything and trying to find our waitress to place the order and to get anything ...anything. It took forever! Unbelievable! If you like a "normal service", and you do not want to be frustrated, choose another place. We are not very sophisticated, but this was the worst experience I ever had in a 5 starts restaurant. Never again.

AMAZING ..sat inside at high top bar table. Waiter/bartender went above and beyond. So sorry I didn't get his name but from Italy. Food and service were great. Outside seating had a better view but went through open table and was told those reservations were inside. Main our final night in South Beach perfect.

Everything was great except for the fact the host did not want to acomódate or take into consideration my request to have outside seating for my 3rd year wedding anniversary. I paid for a private commercial sign plane to fly by south point with a “Happy 3 Years Anniversary “ for my wife.

I lost $1,350.00 which was non-refundable because they gave us no option but inside seating only.

Had a reservation and was waiting on my outdoor table to be cleaned when a couple sat down. I was told they were regulars even though the table was meant for me and my friends. Very poor service. Had me waiting for another 30mn for an outdoor table which I never got because I decided to leave and go somewhere which respects reservations and clients regardless of who they are.

Hey there Winemaker. If reservation is made in OT by guest, There is a disclaimer that indicates that reservations are only for inside. If one calls, we always let them know If waiting for the patio, there can be a wait as we don't take reservations there.

We continue to have a wonderful experience when we have a meal at this restaurant. The food is great but the service is better. Today was no exception. I love being attended to with such pleasantries and being asked by the waiter if everything is to my liking. Today it was. We went as far as to splurge on the sundae dessert. We had never really had dessert while visiting this restaurant because I the portions are large and there is never room for dessert. But today,we did and it was very good.

We sat outside and watched the boats go by. Such a lovely afternoon.

Thank you for the continued wonderful experience. The floor manager, Michelle, who takes care of seating on the outside deck did a fantastic job getting our party of four seated right on time. Kudos to our waiters as well. Such nice men.
