Food is ok but service is terrible. It looked like they had limited staff at the time. It is outrageous they force you to pay 20% in tip when the service is so lousy

My experience was terrible before I even sat down or got my food - well half of my food. Walked up to the hostess station and told the young lady I had a reservation for 5:30 but was 15 minutes early. She said okay walked inside and a guy came out. Asked you have a reservation. I said yes for outdoor seating. Again, got the okay and he went inside. Another person came out said follow me and walked us to a table turns around and says, do you plan to me here for more than an hour and a half? I asked why? Answer, we’ll we are very busy and have a limited outdoor seating and lots of reservations. Well, my group of six also made a reservation it’s not like we just walked in. Time limit information should have been stated in the notes on the reservation page or your website and could have been expressed in a much less unwelcoming manner but fine we already drove there and just wanted a nice meal. Oh did I mention at that point, the restaurant only had one other table! The restaurant was empty! We ordered - I requested two apps as my dishes - meatballs and polenta. The waiter asked, everything out together? Answer, Yes. After that warm welcome no one was in the mood for drinks or to settle in for a fun meal. We needed to be done in an hour and a half. So food comes out. I am missing a dish. Mention it and answer is it’s coming out now. So I wait. My husband opens his napkins to get utensils, dirty utensils. I had to ask three people for clean utensils. Still waiting in polenta. I told everyone to go ahead and eat and an hour later still no polenta. My husband calls the waiter over about the polenta and same answer it’s coming out. Seconds later, the same unwelcoming person that sat us comes by tries to make it right by taking it off the bill and offering me a free dessert. No thank you! Taking it off the bill and offering a free dessert is not going to take away the rude and poor service. My family said the food was fine. I do not recommend.

Had to take outt dinner as my wife got sick shortly after we arrived. Service was very slow even though there were few people there. got home, my salmon portion was very small, my wife's portion was ok, but didn't taste as well as it should. not in a hurry to go back, if at all. Their quality and service went down from last year when they were great to dine at.

The Guest was fairly average. The food was okay. Ambience was similar to most establishments in South Florida with upbeat music and the service was good. I really like Mediterranean food and wanted this place to stand out, but unfortunately it was average at best. If you’re looking for good Mediterranean food, this is not the place. If you’re looking for a standard place to have some cocktails and apps, this could work.

We've wanted to try The Guest for a few months now, and just never had the opportunity. We had a late brunch there the other Saturday, and glad we did. Great food, great service, and we stayed late enough to make it til happy hour - which is pretty damn awesome.

First we asked canned music to be lowered which they did

Live music wasn’t too too
Loud but can only go earlier if we want to speak to our foursome
Food was excellent

This place always has something going on music wise. Whether is karioki , bands, trios or DJs , you can always count on there being live music. Also the best dressed women I’ve ever seen come to the place on saturdays. So there’s a fashion show, people watching, great music scene and pretty decent food all rolled up in one place. You definitely will be entertained at The Guest.

Three days later my head is still ringing from the “music”.

Nicely decorated with indoor and outdoor dining. It is more of a bar than restaurant. It had live music and we happened to be there on jazz night. Limited menu but freshly prepared. Fried calamari was outstanding as well as churrasco steak. Overall very nice surprise.

Good food. Good service. Good time. A bit too noisy with music for those who want to talk--- before and during performance--- but good for people who like that. Staff attentive and COVID masked and tables distanced.

The food here was very appetizing with plenty of portions. We arrived right before the kitchen closed and they were polite enough to take our order anyway before closing for the dinner menu. There was also a whole baby shower going on while we ate our meals. So if you ever need a place to throw a small party; The Guest can be a fabulous choice.

The service was slow despite us being the only patrons there at the time. We do understand the staffing issue due to Covid, however the communication from the staff lacked a lot.

We weren’t told about the menu items that were completely out prior to placing our orders. We waited about 30 minutes after placing our drink orders for the server to return die our food order. After ordering, our server comes back 5 minutes later to tell us about the items that they’re out of. We order replacements and run into the same issue with our replacement items.

Upon, receiving the bill, we were charged full entree price for the side dish alternatives we were given. After our server spoke with the manager, she was able to comp the sides.

Really enjoyed this place, they had fun live music outside and then played a lot of Gypsy Kings. Every dish we ordered was delicious. The waiter was really nice. The only reason I give a little less stars is because we kept having to ask for more water after our glasses sat empty on the table for a while. I’ll be back for sure.

Evening started poorly when we got there with a reservation and no host(was) to greet us. Sat down and no one came over. Finally a server came and he turned up to be the best thing of the night. He was professional and helpful. Food was fair. Some dishes good and some tasteless. Then, the horrendous music started. Full blown electric guitar and a very enthusiastic singer wanted to encourage the guests to follow her singing of Russian folk songs. What is there to say?
Not your usual neighborhood gem.
