Third time here and felt the quality in food dimished. Waiter seemed a bit hectic and scattered forgetting particular things like extra napkins, silverware, etc.

Nice place, good food as usual. Ricardo is a super nice and professional waiter. Cocktails are really good but very pricy. Too bad they don’t offer a special on Mimosas for brunch.

Mediocre food. Terrible service. (I waited 25 minutes for my cocktail and my friend finally went up to the bar to get it. The waiter never even apologized. He was very unfriendly. And worse - they ADD 18% GRATUITY! No wonder the waiter didn’t care.

Ambience is fantastic!

We had a charming but totally ineffective waiter. WE had to ask for coffee and cold drinks three times before they came to our table. We were disappointed that after a cup of regular coffee, we were told if we switched to decaf, we would be charged for a new coffee.
The setting is lovely, the food is delicious but the service is very poor. This is my fourth time at the restaurant and the poorest service ever.

Even with a reservation, it was nearly impossible to get a table. It was truly disappointing. The hostess was inexperienced and not helpful. We waited in the rooftop and were told they would come get us when the table was ready, which never happened. The rooftop was very nice, great drinks and ambiance. Sadly, we left due to the long wait and lack of attention.

It was not very nice to wait almost an hour with a reservation. We were directed to be seated at the bar upstairs until a table was ready, as the hostess said a lot of tables were occupied longer than expected. I had to actually go to remind her, and only then be put at the very end of the restaurant. But our server, Woody was great, and the food tasted really good. I do recommend the crispy Brussels sprouts, the calamari, the couscous and chicken...the menu was great!

After one hour waiting for my "Reserved" Table , we were not offered bread , water or anything to fill the belly till the food got to the table 1 hour later. The manager never made appearance even complaining in a pretty high voice. We were able to have dinner at 11:30 pm. It was chilly out and they didn't have heaters or blankets.
The service was TERRIBLE - WORST restaurant I been in my life. Sadly because the food was not bad and the environment was nice.

Everything was excellent. Wait staff very nice, professional and knowledgeable about the menu. Loved the Brussel Sprouts and Rib eye steak. My friends had the salmon and the pasta, both said their meals were delicious. Strongly recommend! It will be added to my dining list.

The food and atmosphere were superb. IT's a little pricey but worth it. The only thing I can think of that could use improvement is the length of time that it took to get the food. I have to say they were very busy and it allowed for much time for conversation. I plan to go back.

I have been some sundays night to Vista and the service is very bad and need to improve food. You should have a pizza or other options for sunday night.

Food was really good. We shared the appetizers and the desserts, and my parents shared one main dish. I had the duck tagliatelle, and it was very good, super delicious. The restaurant is located in this small “market”, and the whole decor and ambiance is super nice, rustic but modern, with a lot of plants. There was live music, and at night they lowered the intensity of the lights, which I thought it was really cool. The noise was okay, we could hear each other, and everyone around us seemed to be having a good time. The service was okay, some servers were nicer than others, but overall everyone was welcoming and nice to us. I’d definitely go back to try more dishes and cocktails.

Lets be completely transparent and hopefully management will take note.
An establishment of that nature can not charge $30 plus for a fried "mixto" basket which is visually and tastefully undesirable. Small appetizer plates listed as main course-wrongly imprinted per the Server statement was wrong. That alone sets off a bad vibe.

Listen, it's a trendy place in Little Haiti with hip and beautiful people. Go hangout and have a drink at the bar, because unfortunately the service and more so the food, is over rated. Hopefully, it just was my table only with these issues!

Incredible experience from start to finish. Our waitress was incredibly helpful, kind and gave us great recommendations. Our dishes were unique, flavorful, and truly worth going back for. The ambiance was romantic and had a great overall vibe. Overall, the best dining experience I've had in Miami in quite some time!

It's a casual, informal place. A little bit pricy. I've asked scallops and I was expecting more based on the price. There was only 3 scallops in a large fancy plate. It's not about the money. There should be a real proportion. Service is great. Food quality not that much.

Normally Vista is my favorite restaurant. The food, as always, was really, really great. Our waiter was super friendly and enthusiastic. The only thing was that this time we felt rushed, and it kind of put a damper on the evening.

Went with friends from out of town. Have been many times before. Arrived 1 hour early to enjoy drinks and catch up with friend on rooftop terrace. Arrived early.
The host was AWOL from the moment we arrived. Nobody bothered to ask us why we were loitering at the front either. Eventually a server tracked the host down after we asked multiple times to check-in. When he did show up, the host looked over at our large group still stood there, and ignored us! We were by now blocking the doorway, desperate just to check-in and get out the way and head to the bar to relax. Still nothing.
Eventually I stared him down and was a bit short to say the least. At least the message got through, and everything worked ok from there onwards.
Food is good and interesting. Drinks are tasty.
If you can handle a bit of a shoddy/disorganized entry greeting, the locale is fun and food n drinks worth a sample.

It was good tonight, they ran out of a few key things and the waiter forgot about us... Twice which was really annoying. Wouldn't rush back after that.
