The restaurant itself is beautiful and serene. Offers amazing views and a relaxing and luxurious vibe. The food and drinks were good as well but the service was subpar. We were seated and our server ignored us and waited on 4 other tables that were seated after us. We had to get the hostess to find our waitress and tell her to come over. Definitely not what we expected from a hotel with such high standards.

We had a reservation for 6 PM and were not seated until 7 PM. The hotel/restaurant staff bordered on rude. Food was not great either. We ordered the spicy tuna roll and yakisoba noodles. Very disappointed with the experience. Definitely try another restaurant if you’re celebrating.

I originally had a reservation for 2 but last minute a good family friend wanted to join and Water at 1 Rooftop was so accommodating. Dinner was accessional, had the Edamame as an appetizer we shared the sautéed brussel sprouts, the short rib nachos were delicious and then last we had sushi again amazing. Highly recommend this place especially for a special occasion.

The food was alright. We waited awhile to be seated even though we got their early AND checked in. We were patient because we know what it’s like to work in busy restaurants. We finally decided to go back up to the hostess stand (which we were standing next to the entire time) and ask if our table is finally ready after they had seated like 25 people before us. The hostesses admitted (with embarrassment) how they thought we were new employees being trained 🙃. What not lovely experience that was. Prob. will. never. go. back.

This is a really fun rooftop restaurant/bar in the 1 Hotel in Miami Beach. We went for dinner which overall was really good. My only caveat was that the steak saltado was *extremely* salty, and I would not order it again for that reason, or at least I'd ask if they can cut the salt content. My wife enjoyed her sushi and the dessert and salad were really good. The server Steven was a really nice guy and very attentive. The decor is really nice and we loved eating outside on the hotel's rooftop. Great place with a really vibrant bar.

Do not go if your covid conscious. I have eaten at many restaurants in Miami and I pretty much always feel safe, this was not the case with this restaurant. You have people walking around the whole place without wearing there mask (going to the bathroom and most when they enter the place they just take it off) and nobody says anything to them. Our waiter was barely wearing her mask. It was below her nose and sometimes even below that. When she came around I had to put on my mask. It’s expensive place for not good service or food.

Went there for my wife's birthday (traveled from Vegas). We sad down during a thunder/wind/rainstorm. The staff was absolutely amazing, the food was fantastic, service was attentive and perfect.
I couldn't think of a more perfect place to eat sushi, cold on a rooftop, during a thunderstorm!
We will be back for sure!!!

Views are awesome. Our waitress was sweet and helpful. Food was unique and very good as were the drinks. Make a reservation. And if you do and show up early, prepare to hang out in the downstairs bar until you're buzzed up at the reservation time.

Very busy for a Monday night. Reservations are a must.
Couches with the view of the water are only for large parties. Not couples.
Had the matcha margarita - special drink of the month. Very good. Cerviche was excellent. Entree was the octopus and was a large portion and was excellent.

The vibe and location are great, but some menu items, like the steak saltado bowl and chicken yakisoba noodles, can be found around Miami at better establishments for less price and double the food. The bartender definitely needs to go back to school, we had to return three drinks because they weren’t enjoyable at all. There was no balance in flavor/alcohol. Waitress stated “He makes the best Old Fashion” but that was a total lie. The WATR Burger was really good

It was the night of my birthday. Atmosphere was gorgeous but very windy and cold that night. The food was great a bit small in portion size but very good. Will definitely return when the weather is good to enjoy the rooftop cabana experience
