    Review is for dinner-This was a midweek early dinner. The tuna salad plate was delicious & attractive as was the grilled chicken. Cocktails and beer were good. Service was attentive and helpful. It was very good! Breakfasts here were is a 5/5 even better than very good experience.

    It was dead, not one was there except two small tables outside. The staff was not engaging and very short. Asked about food what they liked, didn’t etc waitress was very blah, yeah, the burger is good type of responses. Didn’t ask about food allergies, which I found odd, can’t remember the last time a server didn’t ask that. Barely checked to see if we needed anything. We had a 9 pm reservation, by 9:30 we were being pushed out and had just gotten appetizers- the lights inside were shut off making it almost pitch black on the patio while we were eating. By 9:45 the waitress asked if she can close out the check, we were still eating. I have been here for brunch and lunch and loved it. But I was extremely disappointed tonight. We live n the area and thought it would be nice to walk to dinner somewhere more chill than what most of south of fifth has to offer. We were very turned off and rushed and the food was really just sub par :(

    The Local HouseResponded on June 26, 2022Dear Alie, We appreciate your feedback and your ongoing support being a Local. I'm very sorry your dinner experience didn't match the expectations set from previous brunch visits and that we failed to deliver on our service standards. We strive to make each guest feel like family and I would love to make things right. I'm sharing my contact in a direct message to extend an invitation to try our new dinner menu and make up for the sub par experience. I hope to meet you soon. -Katherine, GM

    Food and server were great! But the only complaint was we arrived about 9minutes late for our reservation (trying to find parking). And when we got there the hostess said she gave away our table and canceled our reservation. We were a bit confused because we read in the fine print that we had a 15min grace period. Anyway, we had to wait for a table to become available. Our mistake for being late, we aren’t from this area and we were trying to find parking. But I believe they should honor the 15 minute grace period or do not include that in the fine print. Overall, it was a good breakfast and a short walk from the beach!

    While our outside table was very nice, our food was good and our service was very good, we were taken aback by a woman seated alone at a next table. She fed her small yelping dog from a dog dish that she had set on her table. We don’t mind dog-friendly and giving a dog water in a bowl on the ground, but this was not billed as a dog café for dog dining. This was off-putting to our dining experience.

    Great service and food in a chill adult restaurant just two blocks from the Ocean Drive above 5th madness. We enjoyed cocktails, mussels, burgers and a huge portion of key lime pie in a jar. It was the mellowest place to watch the Super Bowl. We will be back.

    best meal I had while in Miami. I went on a Monday morning with a Friend. we sat outside in the morning sun because it was a bit cool in the shade that morning. It was peaceful and not much traffic going by. We both had the egg and chorizo with potatoes and shared the banana pancakes. everything was amazing! will def come here again, will probably be my 1st day breakfast spot when I arrive in Miami!

    I LOVED everything about this place. It was adorable location-wise, the drinks were so good. This location participated in Miami Spice and its a very good deal. I got the lobster Mac and cheese and it’s probably one of my favorite things I’ve ever eaten. My sister got the lobster roll which was also phenomenal. Both had tons of flavor, tons of lobster, very unique. I will definitely be coming back here.

    In a word, overpriced. I know this is Miami and restaurants are typically very expensive, but this was surprising even by those standards. My seafood pasta dish was less impressive than something I could have thrown together at home. The fried chicken was good, but that was the only dish any of the four of us liked.

    I tried the Miami Spice lunch menu when my mom visited because we wanted a casual, light, and nice beachy meal. I've actually stayed at the Sense Beach House (the hotel in which this restaurant sits) before, and I never tire of the chill, relaxed energy this hotel exudes. The drinks were fantastic--I have a "crush" on the beautiful, bright green "kiwi crush" cocktail, and the "tropical garden" with watermelon, gin, and rosemary did not disappoint either. The seared tuna salad and key lime pie were great! I was also in love with the spicy edamame hummus (only available during happy hour) and the goat cheese croquettes. I highly recommend going for a solid lunch after a day on the beach or for happy hour; the vibe here is positively delightful!

    We ate here on a Tuesday night and it was extremely quiet with quick service. I had the salmon roast, which was good, but not great. The salmon was extremely tender, but the potatoes and carrots were undercooked. I also did not enjoy the sauce on the salmon. My partner had the Seafood pasta, which was good, but bland. The shrimp appetizer was amazing. The menu did lack a bit of variety; however, so I probably wouldn’t go back. Nice meal for a one-off, but not good enough to become a regular.
