Went there to celebrate my girlfriends birthday, had a good time. Lighting and noise level was great for the occasion. We had Gamberoni Alla Griglia for an appetizer which was decent but Tagliolini Ai Gamberetti E Calamari was delightful. Will be going again the next time I visit Miami.

About the restaurant
CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?

📍 FAENA MIAMI BEACH
James Beard Award-winning chef, Paul Qui, unfolds an ultra-exclusive speakeasy style Omakase experience-- El Secreto. Blending Tokyo-style sushi and Kyoto-style kaiseki into an unparalleled tasting menu that’s prepared and served for a mouthwatering culinary journey.

Tucked behind FAENA's candlelit cava and the red velvet folds of Faena Theater, there is beauty hidden in the shadows. EL SECRETO, Miami's best-kept secret for those in the know.

In Japan, the term ‘omakase’ refers to respectfully leaving another to decide what is best, or in gastronomic speak: the chef’s selection.

Indulge in the highest-quality seafood from around the world and relish in ever-evolving dishes and ingredients such as line-caught fish flown in daily, innovative vegetable dishes, sea urchin from Hokkaido, sustainable bluefin tuna from Baja and Sanuki Olive Wagyu from Kagawa Prefecture in Japan.

What you’ll find? We’ll never tell.
