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!

Absolutely gorgeous place, a little pricy but worth it!
You are limited to 2 hour seating that is the only thing we didn’t like but overall a great experience!

Awful meal especially for the prices. Waiter forgot our drinks to start. We ordered two apps, he forgot to put the order in for one... finally brought it out and two minutes later our entire meal comes out. Food was below average, not one item we ordered was impressive. Not to mention the flies were out of control. Understand the restaurant is outside but you’d think they’d have some mechanisms to reduce the flies. 2 people and $280 down the drain. Worst meal of the week on our trip (the only bad meal).

It sucks that I have to give this place only one star but honestly, don’t waste your money going to this place! I made a reservation a month in advanced and specifically asked for a table with water views but instead had to walk allllll the way to the back, got seated in what appeared to be an additional section (not part of the actual restaurant) and when we sat the miami sun, which was literally on fire (it was 3 pm when we got there) was hitting us directly so I asked the waitress is there anyone I can speak to about changing seats and she said no we’re fully booked.. didn’t apologize or try to accommodate. Then we decided to order anyway since we had already paid for valet, we ordered caviar service and they didn’t have. They didn’t have pancakes, or salmon and a few other things. You would think in a place so fancy and upscale they’d be prepared. At one point, I couldn’t hear the waitress speaking over the loud electric music and she responded in such a nasty tone “I saidddd” she was even yelling at the bus boys! like lady if you don’t like dealing with people maybe waitressing isn’t for you! Food overall was nothing out of this world, you can get the same thing somewhere else for half the price! Never wasting my money or time here again!

We waited 30 minutes for our table - fine. No complaining it was busy. But then, we place the order we get our appetizers in 5 minutes. Salmon carpaccio: it was warm, smelly, had to send it back.
We ordered the oven baked snapper. After OVER 1h15mim of waiting, I was super annoyed and starving, I complained. After 1h30minuted - the fish gets here UNDERCOOKED. The waiter couldn’t even cut it to serve it to us. We had to send it back and of course canceled the entire order we were not about to wait anymore. We ordered some quick replacement and asked for the bill.
They did not even take ONE bottle of water out of the bill even after everything that happened to us.

It’s very disappointing because the music and the ambiance was great. It ruined our night.

Great atmosphere. Beef carpaccio with ‘shaved’ parmagian (as stated on menu) was disappointing as it was beef carpaccio loaded with a ton of ‘grated’ cheese.

I was surprisingly disappointed in our dining experience. I specifically made a reservation to celebrate my best friends engagement during the weekend brunch. To our disappointment, the restaurant did not have the ingredients for several menu items, which was surprising considering that the menu is super limited to begin with and brunch is only offered Saturday and Sunday. Additionally our waitress was not friendly or pleasant. I had written a note that we were celebrating the engagement and no acknowledgement was made.

Hostess seemed to be high and just slow and not care. Female bartender was VERY rude. Bar top was messy, sticky, and gross.
Tables were not set up properly (missing chairs)- we had a reservation for three and sat at a table with only two chairs. Had to ask for another chair and cushion.
Server was rude and inattentive.
Busser was fantastic- great service.
Food was ok- over priced for what we had.

It was my gather in law birthday, we waited 45 mins to get appetizers, 5 minutes after that order came in for half of the table steak was cold and not what we asked the other half order was cancelled because the restaurant ran out if food. At least le me know in time to recharge my order.
Worst service ever, food it’s always bad I mean if I’m paying good money for it then at least give me a hot meal.

The moment my father in law complained about he food we got kick out of the restating paying. $700 bill and they trow out our food.

The restaurant setting is beautiful, however the service was terrible. We had flies all over our table the entire time, and no one would do anything to help us. Then the waiter kept asking if we wanted to order more food. Which the only reason we didn’t was....because of the flies!!!! I was really looking forward to this experience and it just fell terribly short for my friends and I....would not come back.
