Terrible experience! The octopus was over heated . We ask them and they brought the same one again.
The salad was a joke.
Branzinon was ok . The only good thing was the wine and the music the vibe is amazing .
I won’t come back here for food again .
I took my mom here and we absolutely loved it. The ambiance was beautiful and the waiter was immaculate. I would definitely be returning when I am back in Miami. The seafood tower is absolutely amazing. The whipped mashed was so good! If you want a classy and place with fresh food definitely go!
I never had such bad experiences here before till now. Was put on a table hidden in back where all the waiters walk by and bump in to the chairs with out even saying excuse me. They forgot we were even there, we just want it to finish our drinks and leave.
Incredibly loud for no reason
I love this place
Every time I go back to Miami, going to this place is a must. Always a great time.
It was great but $$$$$
Yesterday it was scary! No electricity. Water on the floor. Flooded!!! It was awful. So hard to get back to my car. Very dangerous. They should ha ve closed it due to weather. The water from the tents was evacuated using a pole and heating it. SO UNSAFE !!
Food was terrible
Place is in a great location but food was fair. Not as good as expected especially because it’s so expensive. My octopus was so hard I couldn’t eat it all
Our first time here but definitely will not be the last.
We were celebrating my hubby’s birthday and I must say we were completely blown away.
He was having a rough day earlier and going to this spot totally made up for it.
We got seated in a Cabana by the water.
The ambiance was so beautiful, the drinks were great and the food was impeccable.
I plan on coming back for my birthday in October
We loved it
Our experience was exceptional. The only downside was that it was summertime and there were flies all over our yummy food! The staff did everything they could to help us out (light a candle, turn fan towards our table) but it was still distracting our birthday dinner. We’ll be back though, it’s too beauitful not to be!
We all ordered salmon and it was dangerously undercooked. The waiter only came back to our table maybe twice within the whole time we were there.
Only good thing about the place are the views and entertainment. Live band, woman on stilts was interacting with people, a woman was balancing fire.. so the entertainment was great but as a whole, not the best place for food.
The place has great ambiance and it’s in a great location that is why I am not giving it one star. My issue was with the server and the busser. We ordered an expensive bottle of wine. When they came to set the plates after the appetizer the busser spilled the wine bottle and my wine glass all over the table on me and all over the floor. It was accidental but we never had a manager come and approach us to apologize for the incident. On top of everything once we received the check they expected us to pay full price for a bottle of wine that they had spilled. We quickly spoke with the server and they deducted 30$ off the bill but the fact that we had to take the initiative and be the ones to speak up about it was very disappointing. Not great service for how much money you’re going to spend at this location.
One of my favorite place
Our server Ash was exceptional. Made my husbands birthday with his assistance and disposition and friendliness!
Milo the manager was wonderful and came up to acknowledge and ask how our experience was which of course magnificent and will return soon!!
Great experience for an anniversary dinner when you're ready to eat fine foods and turn up with your people!
Amazing place! Beautiful views! Food was absolutely out of this world! Service was a little slow but staff was friendly.
Had dinner with family from out of town who were looking for a location with a nice city view. The view was the only highlight of the night. Food was not worth the price at all. Food quality was comparable to chain restaurants, and that’s giving them too much credit. Not many options available on the menu either. Service lacked from start to finish. Music was soo loud, we could not hold a conversation without screaming and repeating every other sentence. Extremely hot and existing fans are poorly placed. I’ve dined at other outdoor venues in Miami and never felt the intense heat as we did here. They should definitely address this issue. You don’t expect to be dripping sweat before appetizers arrive when the prices are what they charge.
Come for the view and maybe drinks…save yourself time and a tasteless dinner experience.
Love the atmosphere and the food was awesome!!!
Bad food options for brunch and slow service (maybe with the 20% tip included - there is low incentive to hustle). Not worth the trip better experience at Sea Spice for similar price
Food was extremely over priced and not good at all.
Amazing dinner. I had fish. The desserts are amazing tried them all also. Ambiance is perfect on the dock. Music by DJ was great. Great outdoor space.
La comida es mala y demasiado cara.
Brunch menu is a rip off. Almost $40 for a burger. SoBe crowd. Not for me
Incredible view, great drinks, good food. Definitely the place to spend an afternoon.
The music could be less louder, otherwise the food and service was awesome.
The oysters did not taste fresh, and the Octopus was bland.
Sure glad we dined here!!!! What a wonderful experience! We dine out at least twice a week - and were hesitant to dine here, because of some poor reviews, but did anyway to share the view with friends visiting Miami. The food here was outstanding. Best Truffle fries ever - and we have been to the white truffle festival in Alba, Italy, where we ate plenty of truffles. The rest of the food was WAY above average with fresh fish and perfectly cooked and seasoned asparagus, Service was tops. And the music was a highlight that completed the perfect atmosphere. We will be back!
Excelent place, food, drinks, music and view
Nice atmosphere. Food was mediocre. Not worth the price. Would not go back.
Birthday celebration of a friend of mine
Loved spending the evening here. Cannot wait to come back on our next vacation.
We really had a very pleasant night celebrating my daughter's birthday, the food, the drinks, the attention, the atmosphere and the violinist playing the violin in accordance with the background music, all very cool 😎
It was really full and kitchen was almost closing but server made sure we got our food ordered, 5 minutes before closing kitchen. The food was good, and everything overall was great , good music, good views & excellent cocktails. Definitely will be back.
Una tarde preciosa
La mejor experiencia, el ambiente, la música, fantástico lo recomiendo
