Everything was perfect. The staff is amazing, very kind and attentive. The food is excellent, the place is gorgeous and the atmosphere is so pleasant. We went there to celebrate my friend’s birthday and everyone loved it.

The view was beautiful! The food was delicious! We had the octopus, the lobster Benedict, a margherita pizza and the tuna tartare. We also ordered a pitcher of the red sangria, it was also very refreshing and yummy!

Gorgeous, Delicious, great service and environment!!! My only criticism was that the steak though it was delicious was very small especially considering the price and that the sangria was sub par.

The place is lovely with amazing views of downtown Miami. The food was great! They missed opportunities on serving us drinks as they took forever to come by the table to ask if we wanted refills, we had to ask them too... very pricey, and you even have to pay $20 for valet, which seems excessive to me!

I love this restaurant very much, I go there once a month, but this time there were terrible drinks! My husband ordered wine and it was sour and terrible! I ordered 2 cocktails and there was one ice and they were like water with syrup! Terribly tasteless! Now I won't recommend you to my friends and I won't go myself until you have a good bartender working for you, just like before.

I had higher hopes for this place. The food was just OK. I ordered the chorizo pizza, they brought out pepperoni and the waiter wanted to debate whether the pizza was correct or not. The drinks were over priced but very good. I ordered a second serving of fries for my son, which never came and had to send the water server to find my waiter because he disappeared for 25 minutes. The views and overall ambiance were wonderful but there are too many other waterfront contenders in Miami and this place is not worth it.

Words can’t express how Sara treated me and my fam. before even arriving. I was called personally and also when I got there she was extremely accommodating due to my sensitivity and pre existing breathing conditions and couldn’t be seated near a group of people even social distancing.

She made me feel safe and treated us like royalty. Our server was a delight.

The food and drinks were amazing. The staff and service were constantly checking in on how everything was going. I loved the different types of drinks. And the Greek salad was fresh and tasty. We really enjoyed the experience and views despite the heat. There are fans and covered awnings to keep it cool. The only negative was when we were leaving when the security officer informed us we could not go near the dock or take photos of boats docked.

I’d definitely recommend to visit your lovely spot. Brilliant location. We’ve ordered couple appetizers and main dishes. It was quite over salty and we even didn’t finish many items ... As it was my Birthday guys brought a bright candle and it was very surprisingly fun. Hope next we’d treat us with yummy food as well!

The View is worth going for. Ambiance is very nice although we were seated next to a huge loud fan that was a big distraction. Service was outstanding, although the food was just ok for the price.

La comida está bien y el servicio es impecable especialmente si te atiende Julio.

Good food, horrible service and management. We wish they change their attitude, led by the horrible obnoxious arrogant rude GM. We dock our boat there at the marina to come there and be given one of the worst service and attitude... too bad. Not coming back.

Came here for Miami Spice dinner. This is a great open space right on the water and has beautiful views. For dinner we had the salmon crudo (extra charge), beef carpaccio, branzino, and their signature flourless chocolate cake. Everything was delicious and the branzino was a decent sized serving. The chocolate cake was so delicious and chocolate-y. They have sanitizing wipes on the table for you to use, and have hand sanitizer throughout the restaurant, as well as gloves should you wish to wear them. Our waitress' mask kept slipping below her nose but didn't notice that issue with other waitstaff. She sprayed the bill holder and pens with sanitizer before giving them to us, which was greatly appreciated. Service ended up being slow towards the end of our meal but otherwise this was a great experience.

This has been one of my faves in Miami. I went back during COVID. The place is still lovely but food wasn't quite so good as before. For instance we ordered the skirt steak. It was rare though we asked for medium and the chimichurry sauce was terrible -- watery and not very tasty. Despite this, it's still worth a visit for the glam ambiance and views.

My husband’s first night out since March 8th, 2020 to celebrate his birthday.
Very happy all evening went well and relaxed enjoying the hamburger and fries he was craving for.
Thank you and keep going with social distancing and wearing masks for everybody’s health!

I think the live jazz was a bit off for the environment. A lounge music, that they have during live music breaks, would be more appropriate to play all the time.

Be aware parking is $30. This was for the restaurant as there is no other place to park. Brunch was $65 per person and the food was covered by flies. They even had to replace my mimosa because a fly fell in! Gross!

Beautiful location and restaurant but would not return.

Service was good.
