My husband and I enjoy the restaurant & being 5 min away
Love this place I Keep going back the branzino and truffle fries is my favorite love the ambiance and vibe on weekends
No había música latina.
Nice view of downtown Miami, good food with a high price point.
Entrée menu seemed limited and pricey for the actual product. Atmosphere was nice and gentleman who took care of us was very accommodating.
Our reservation was made in advanced for the 9:30 pm seating. Walked in to no host and a random employer told us to seat wherever we wanted. We chose one of the many open tables and that’s when the issue began. We first waited about 20 minutes to get someone to come to the table and as she approached she immediately asked us why where we there and how were we able to sit when they were about to closed. We showed her the reservation and then she left to get us menus. At this point was already 10 PM and we were informed that the kitchen was closing in 5 minutes. We ordered a few appetizers and an american wagyu New York strip with truffle fries. The oysters were good, the beef carpaccio was ok, but the big disappointment was the steak. It was over cooked (we order medium rare, they delivered extremely well…almost fried). The waitress apologized but couldn’t do anything because the kitchen was already closed….10:15 pm at this time. We asked about the truffle fries and she apologized again. They had turned off the fryer.
Let’s discuss the ambiance…we hadn’t even received the steak and they turned on the lights and turned off the music. The manager passed by and I was able to stopped her to discuss this. She was apologetic and offer some kind of restitution.
To the restaurant….we were there to spend money on a nice dinner…$82 back for an overcooked steak that we couldn’t eat doesn’t take back from the disappointing experience. We didn’t even get to order dessert. We were in and out the door in under 1 hour.
For future reservations…don’t offer a 9:30 pm reservations on a Sunday if you are going to put people through this. As a couple with young kids, it takes a lot to be able to dine out. From coordinating child care and paying for it, to getting ready and driving almost an hour to this place…it is extremely disrespectful to clients.
FYI…the valet costs $30 for the hour were in.
Had a blast... food was amazing
Pricey but good
The food and drinks were amazing. The decor and location was absolutely beautiful. But the only issue was the service wasn’t the best, it took us 5 mins to get the attention of any staff member even though they were behind us talking. This happen a few times they out our meal. Also the music was SOOO LOUD. It was nearly impossible to hear us talk. But over all we had a great time.
Great birthday kickoff dinner
Took my sister for a birthday dinner. Very impressed with the ambiance and service. 10/10. Music was great & variety of genres
Had a lovely time ☺️
Absolutely excellent experience….in food..service..drinks… entertainment and MORE ,,,,,Thank you for everything!!! PS Hasan excellent service and thank you for your attitude…
Very nice place to chill and enjoy. The only but is that is very expensive
The place is amazing service expetacular just to pricey!!!!! But it is worth it the food was great!!!!
A quiet night out with a good girlfriend under the tent with the cats! No live band or activity just very relaxing scenic view
The places is really good until it rains. Need more food choices. Ambience and the live music is amazing. Food prices are very high
The server was rude asking to leave after 2 hours, we could not have dinner because we didn’t have time.
Everything good Thank you
Fun atmosphere. Good vibe, beautiful sky line of Miami.
Shabby overall experience, food was ok. Table next to us started smoking while we were eating. No sense of respect and personal space, particularly during COVID.
Amazing vibe and the live music is excellent.
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
The ambience is amazing! Great DJ playing all good/vibing music.
Drinks are good; the entree was amazing, I had the salmon with mash potatoes (amazingly delicious). Service was a bit slow. Valet was awesome! I went to the front to meet a friend and my feet were killing me and one of the valet rep asked if I had sandals in the car, he will run and get it for me so I can be comfortable, best valet experience!
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!!
