Terrible experience. Hosts were not welcoming at all, not even a greeting or smile when I was checking in. Although I had booked, she sent me to the bar to wait while she could “find me something” in a very rude manner. While waiting at the bar, no one greeted us or asked if we wanted anything. Tables were empty and we still had to wait a long time to be seated. I had to check in again with the host and she acted like I was intruding, sent me once again to the bar with her rude manners. Finally we seat when she tells us we should mind our time as we had 2 hours for the table.
I understand restaurants have a return time, but there are nice ways to communicate this to your guest. She left us in a hurry.
Waiters were finally happy and warm welcoming!
Ps: big confusion with bar staff and waiters informing us completely different things- staff needs to be in sync.
Hostess should be trained and happy to work as your first appearance can decide how your experience might go.

This is an amazing place. Ambiance is a 10! And so is the food. The sea bass melts in your mouth. The octopus full of flavor and the most tender I have had outside of Greece. Great spot for a water view and a romantic date.

Beautiful setting. Nice scenery. Food was excellent. Service was mediocre. Waiter showed general disinterest in our dining experience. Music was a bit over whelming making it difficult to communicate at the table.

I did make a reservation over a month before and asked for a table outdoor, they had none and made me sit indoor with a very cool air conditioner. Very displeased with that.
Also they had problems with card system and made me leave my card info so they could debit later. It made me feel unsecured.

Service was poor
Ordered a bottle of rose had to ask for glasses to be refilled basically had to chase the waiter to get a second bottle, he never asked after serving the last of the first bottle if we needed another
My water glass never got filled without me having to ask first... the price tag doesn’t match the service
Customer service is dead!! But I guess they don’t feel the need to work for it since they include the 18% on the check
Our service was not 18% service

Took my family for the Easter brunch...which we thoroughly enjoyed! The ambiance and service were spectacular; the vegetable bowl topped with chicken was outstanding as was the black truffle risotto. Their unique tres leche for dessert was top shelf. Will most certainly be back!

Waitress was rude and never around. Took 30 for one of our drinks to come, because they didn’t have an ingredient....just tell us and we would have swapped it or ordered something different.

Apps came with entries, some food got cold as we tried to eat everything. At end of the meal, waitress said , “Are you done, or do you want to see a dessert menu”

We eat here EVERY time we are in Miami, but the waitress and manager were so rude and unaccommodating, that we will never go back. We will also never send friends there, which we had done many times. Start clear of this place and it’s bad vibe....there are tons of good restaurants to pick from

Very disappointed with our dinner at this restaurant on Saturday night 4/13/19 as most of the reviews are good. The chicken had absolutely no taste, no flavor at all. We had to request salt, pepper and ketchup to get this one down. It seemed they might have forgotten to season it all together. Beautiful location, the restaurant is located on a lovely spot on the river and staff pleasant and quite friendly. We had a late reservation so it's possible we simply ended up with a tired chef. However its certainly not an inexpensive restaurant by any means, so that's not an excuse. Management should check the meals later in the evening as clients are paying good money, expecting good food at any time.

After being met by a smiling hostess, seated at a corner table with a perfect view of the Miami River and skyline and served by Derrick, who has all the qualities anyone could ever ask for in a waiter/server made for a perfect lunch . After great meals in beautiful settings in 34 countries and all of the lower 48 + Hawaii, give me someone trained by Derrick and backed up by his chef at Seaspice and I would be a very happy diner.

the food , location and ambiance were fantastic . Expensive but worth it .
Service so so at best . Worst part is waitress did not know how to use the handheld
credit card reader and supposedly her machine froze . Floor manager came with another
machine , and I specifically asked if they were sure the first charge had not gone through ,
I was given assurances . Of now my account has been hit twice by Seaspice , and I have to deal
with bank of America claims department . What a an F...ing fiasco . That restaurant is of my list .

Had wanted to try brunch here and not disappointed as the table location we asked for was selected.
Service was excellent and we had the Lobster Benedict and Mimosa’s. All was excellent!
We were disappointed in valet parking which not validated by restaurant at $15 on Sundays a 50% premium over regular lunch price.
We definitely will return. however, will find a street parking spot!

Food: the yellowtail was very good, but the Seabass that my wife ordered was tasteless.
Ambiance: very nice and pleasant.
Value: expensive for what was delivered.
Obs: I informed in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, but the restaurant did not offer anything, not even a birthday cake.

Worst experience ever! They took more than 1.5 hours to deliver our food from the moment they took the order. Besides that they brought the side dishes half an hour after the main course, when there was no more main course left. And to one of the persons that came with us they brought the wrong main course twice and on the third try they got it right but with a hair in the food.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!

Habia un show de carnaval de Rio y al terminar de comer y ya haber pagado la cuenta me detuve a amirar algo del show y un vigilante me obligo a salir del restaurante y amenazo con golpearme o sacarme a la fuerza.

MUY MAL !!!
