Global, International
Considered one of the coolest and visually striking restaurants in the nation, Wynwood Kitchen and Bar (WKB) opened in December 2010. WKB’s innovative global-Latino cuisine, by executive chef Joseph Forest, is served small plate style, allowing guests the freedom to mix and match dishes to their personal taste.

In harmony with the food, the décor provides guests with a visual feast. From the floor to ceiling iconic murals by Shepard Fairey in the bar area to the bursting canvasses by German artist Christian Awe in the dining room to the stunning Wynwood Walls that surround the outside patio, WKB offers guests a one of a kind unparalleled experience.

I hadn’t been here in a long while, and after this visit it will probably be a long while again before I return. The best thing going here is the ambiance, the adjacent outdoor art wall and studio, and it’s location in the heart of Wynwood. But that’s about it. As before, the food is somewhat overpriced and at the same time unimpressive. For example, the shrimp tacos arrived just barely warm, and though the tortilla was impressively sized, the fillings couldn’t quite fill it out, leaving a significant empty border on either side. And while the fillings of shrimp and garnishes looked colorful and inviting the flavor somehow managed to be both monotone and unsatisfying. Meanwhile, calamari ordered at the start of the meal never arrived. We had to track down the waiter to ask about it. He returned several minutes later to say it would be coming. But he offered no explanation or acknowledgement of the significant delay. We packed it up to go. These are first world problems, of course, but on the other hand if this is your business and you charge for your wares, you ought to deliver. It’s a shame because this could otherwise be a great spot, you really want it to be good. But it seems it’s always mediocre at best.

Okay lunch, with nothing particularly standing out. Kitchen was not coordinated with servers, and dishes came out at inconsistent intervals with one in our party having to wait to receive meal until after the rest of us were finished — without any indication as to why.

From the moment we walked in, we knew this would be a special place. Even though it was very busy, they made accommodations for 9 of us to eat outside last minute. Our server Ernesto was fantastic and took care of everything we needed. I loved the shrimp tacos and the 48 hour pork. For my moms birthday they gave us a bunch of delicious desserts. Being right next to the Walls allowed for a very cool urban vibe in Wynwood.

We had a very nice family lunch here while visiting the Wynwood Walls. Here is the problem in why I would likely never return. THERE IS NO RESTAURANT THAT SHOULD PUT AN AUTOMATIC 20% GRATUITY ON A MEAL. This should never happen. It is completely unacceptable. The fact is that the service was very good and I likely would have given a 20% gratuity on my own but that should be MY choice. A restaurant and the server needs to EARN that. It is absolutely disgusting that they take patrons for granted and require that exorbitant gratuity. Food prices keep going up so by extension percentage based gratuities keep going up as well. I am fine imposing a 15% gratuity but anything above that is not acceptable. Isn't it a shame that I have to waste my ENTIRE review on the stupid gratuity.

2nd time there. The tapas thing is getting old, basically you are overpaying for very little food. And if the food was good, then it is worth it. Alas, not worth it. What happened to Wynwood in general? Feels like Disneyland, so much for a vibrant arts community. Disneyfication ruins it all. And Wynwood is along for the ride. Not many options in Wynwood, this is the better option but there has to be someplace else.

We have eaten here several times and find that the food is no longer as good as it once was. Our server was excellent but the kitchen was unable to get our meal to us in any kind of coherent fashion. The restaurant was only half full but the pace of the meal was awful. Some things came far too quickly while the rest of the meal took far too long. We are aware that this is tapas style dining but they were still not able to serve us in any kind of coherent fashion

This was our first visit to the Wynwood Kitchen and we had an excellent experience during Art Basel. The food is tapas style so we got to sample a variety of dishes. Each dish became more and more tasty. We had the truffle croquettes, octopus, crispy pork and the flautas. We enjoyed each dish with the crispy pork and flautas being our favorites. The cocktails were good. We sat next to the DJ and he was excellent. Not too loud and a good beat. It was fun being so close to the Wynwood Walls. We will definitely return.

Visited restaurant during the Art Basel
food - delicious
But the restaurant calls itself “ Casual American “ but they have a “tapas “ conception actually and they are not informing about this on their website
Also guests are not necessarily gay friendly in this restaurant
