The place is under repairs right now so the ambiance wasn’t as amazing as it could be. The food tasted good and the atmosphere was nice. The noise level was alright.

My main concern was the price to amount of food ratio. The food is small and not very filling while also being nearly 20 dollars for any plate. Appetizers are overpriced and so are the desserts. An appetizer, meal for two, and one dessert is nearly $100. Which is fine... except it didn’t taste that good.

We went here for our final eve in Miami and whilst the venue and ambience was ok I found the food to be over priced and less refined that it had been described. The service was good but also rushed.

We are europeans and we like to take out time when dining out. our eating experience is much slower than what we have experienced in the US. The server tired taking our drinks away before they had been finished and asking if we wanted desert before we had even finished eating our mains.

Whats the rush??? I don't get it - the place is supposed to have a chilled and relaxed vibe. Maybe the waiting staff need to be reminded of that or the management. Otherwise its an over-expensive fast food joint!

This place’s only redeeming quality was its ambiance. We got our one drink when we were half way thru our main course. The rest of us weren’t even able to order one until that time. We got those when our meal was complete. Never saw the same server twice. Disappointed.

Booked a table but still had to wait 20 minutes whilst there were empty tables - it was not that busy
Service took a long time, considering the menu was not extensive
Definitely not 5 star. View not great either.

I am only reviewing on the service as we did not eat nor drink there. My husband had made reservations for us and had told them he wanted a table with a water view as it was my birthday. We get there and they put us far from the water with the only view of some ugly furniture and the side of a wall. The hostess and waitress both said they could not change the table so we left.

I made a reservation on open table, and upon arrival one of the hostesses said we have an event for hotel guests only and I’m not sure how you were able to book. They had poorly put together group of eclectic stoners/Coke heads that were calling themselves DJs preforming. That was the event that apparently no one showed up for, but were telling people with reservations they couldn’t go in. Finally the other hostess used her common sense and realized a majority of the tables were opened, and there were very few people at the bar. The food was okay, but highly overpriced in addition to the lousy service, was completely overrated.
