We had a wonderful time food was outstanding. We arrived late for our reservation no problem getting seated at our table. So cool with the open kitchen it was late on a Sunday. Typically you think the staff in the kitchen would be burnt out after the weekend but they all looked so happy working. That was really nice to see as a guest. Food was fantastic the flavors everything was so fresh. We ordered most of the apps and never felt rushed which was also enjoyable. None of the three entrees really sounded good to me so we just jumped right into desert. I had already had one of the desserts at an event at swank farms. So I chose the chocolate and the other two smaller deserts. They were all great but I’m still thinking about that chocolate desert. The only disappointment was I wish there were a few more dinner options or more protein in the appetizer part of the menu. But everything was fantastic the nudi was better the first time I had it, this time it had too much foam undercooked mushrooms and tiny nudi so that was kinda a let down it was still delicious but I had the first one to compare it to so I just expected it to taste just as good as the first time. But the tuna was the best tuna app I’ve had in my life. The tomato salad with the snow goes wonderfully with the potato Chorizo app. I honestly wanted to have the chef throw an egg on top of that dish!!!!! The cheese puffs were like perfect little clouds with a much appreciated generous dusting of cheese. The staff made me feel so special with a personalized menu for my bday and other treats. Can’t wait till my next visit to Miami stubborn seed will def be a stop

10/10 100% recommend this restaurant! It's a great date night spot or a special occasion. I highly recommend the Chef's Surprise tasting menu with the wine pairing. Be prepared to be wowed by items you would never pick for yourself off the menu. I'm still on cloud 9 from our experience. And if we didn't get dessert with the tasting I probably would have ordered one of each dessert!

Our experience was very good. Great service and friendly server. Food was excellent. We are vegetarian and there was enough selection for the two of us. The endive salad was prepared exceptionally well. There was no bitterness that sometimes accompanies endives. The cacio pepe cheese puffs were good and the accompanying house made pickles were AMAZING. They stole the show. They also made the grits vegetarian for us. Really it’s polenta. It was prepared so well also. Fourth dish was gnudi - seemed like gnocchi to us and pretty good.

I think the food was upscale compared to the location and design of the restaurant. Music sucks!

Other than that, It was a truly amazing culinary experience!

We did the tasting menu and the food was excellent. Taste and presentation of food was exactly what you would expect from a Top Chef winner. I recommend the wine pairing and to sign up on their website for the free cocktail.

The only downside was the timing between courses was off and the food was a bit more expensive for what you get.

Here’s what our tasting menu included:

Oysters
Cacio Pepe puffs
Ricotta dumplings
Tuna tartar
Barramundi
Wagyu
Coconut donut & olive oil cake

Uncomfortably intimate. The layout of people sitting next to each other is underwhelming and uncomfortable, forcing neighboring tables to be sitting shoulder to shoulder. The food was overpriced and underwhelming. Waiters did not operate seamlessly, unnecessary motions they were going through appeared clumsy. The idea of food coming as it’s ready is ridiculous. Not a single respected Michelin star does that. Never again.

Service was beautiful, they took great care of us and made my partner's birthday special. Had to wait a while to be seated, even with a reservation, because they were wild busy, but the waitstaff was helpful. Food was delicious, we got several apps and they were all unique and phenomenal, even better than our entree. Dessert was also delicious and drinks were on point. Patio was on the sidewalk of a busy street, so it was a little loud, but seemed a better option than sitting inside which was a bit crowded. A unique and fun experience overall and fun for a first trip to Miami.
