Horrible service. Waiters spend more time socializing than working. The restaurant wasn’t busy at all. Plenty of servers were walking around.

My server did not follow up when our food was served to see if everything was ok.

Steak came out raw. Eggs came out underdone.

Food was not delicious.

Very disappointed.

Had a great time and food was outstanding but they did not have in stock literally the first 4 bottles of wine we ordered from their list. I mentioned to the waiter that while I realize that restocking wine has been affected by supply chain problems related to Covid but these menus and wine lists are printed pieces of paper. The list of bottles they have in stock is much shorter than the list of those they are out of so it is probably time to simply update the wine list document they print everyday. I felt badly b/c each time I ordered a bottle, they had to go look for it and 10 minutes later they came back and said they were out of it. It took us over a half hour to actually get a glass of wine from a bottle we ordered. Chalk it up to Covid for sure but the restaurant team needs to be more on top of updating their lists. As a sommelier myself, that was a bit concerning.

The quality of the food was low. The service was disorganized with the side orders coming several minutes before the main courses and the main courses not coming all at the same time. The air conditioning was not working well. The price for the dinner was way too expensive for the quality, quantity and type of food we had. I would not recommend this place at all

Sugarcane was an overall good experience. The food was good and the prices reasonable. The menu is tapas style with sharing plates that are decent portion sizes. We ordered the goat cheese croquettes - good, bacon wrapped dates - very good, duck and waffle - good and the chicken thighs - would not order again.

With hearing so much about this place, i had expected some more interesting plates and flavours - so i guess it was just oversold to me.

If you go expecting pretty good food for decent value for a night out when you dont want to cook or want to meet up with friends then you wont be disappointed

Excellent food. Nice ambience. Wish there was bone marrow available as stated in the menu. We were waiting for 2 more guests to come so at first the front desk girl tried to sit us down in the outside bar then the other front desk girl sat us down inside which what we wanted. Weird, but I’m glad they have another person there to let us inside when it’s smoking hot outside.

I’ve dined at this location multiple times & the customer service is lacking here. Thr most recent visit- our server was quite dry , inattentive , and not personable . Beverage refills had to be requested- water & alcohol. Of the previous visits to this establishment , this one was the most memorable. Def time to consider placing this place on the “do not dine” list .

I used to frequent Sugarcane quite a lot before the pandemic and loved it. I was disappointed. The food was not as good. The ceviche tasted awful and the steak and sushi was ok at best. They ran out of oysters and their Kobe beef sliders were no longer on the menu.

Service wasn't as friendly as the first time we dined there. Atmosphere was great. Food is very delicious! I did notice that all the Black patrons were seated in the same area close to the kitchen. I'm not saying it was intentional but just pointing an observation that hostesses should be aware of.

I was super excited to have dinner in this place, as I’ve heard great things. However, my expectations were maybe too high. The service was poor. It took me a long time to even get a glass of water. Tried calling the waiter several times and he wouldn’t even look at me. Once I finally got to order a drink it felt like he was in a rush. I didn’t like that, I felt totally invisible. Anyway, I had this drink that had a very tropical flavor.. it was, well, just ok. Definitely nothing mind blowing.
For dinner, again after struggling to get the waiter’s attention, I ordered the octopus and the sweet corn as a side. The octopus came but they forgot the side dish… I had the order again! At least this one didn’t take that much time.
The food was good, but dishes were super small, so I would say is a bit overpriced. When I finish dinner I was still hungry, so I ordered a salmon avocado roll, which was just average.
Maybe in the future I’ll give it another shot. And hopefully have a better experience.

I visited Sugarcane on July 10th, 2021 with early evening reservations. I underestimated Miami traffic and the weather contributed to me arriving 10 minutes late. Diners beware they will not hold your table but to their credit, this is disclosed on the e-mail reservations. I had called the hostess was kind enough to hold the table for 15 minutes.

After being seated this is where it turned very odd. The server first took our drink order and after 15 minutes we asked where our drinks were. The response was, "sorry bar is busy." We had to prompt that response since our server should have said, sorry for the wait the bar is busy. Another 10 minutes go by and finally our drinks. We attempted to order the oysters but were told they were out. I was a little perplexed since it is a raw bar.
Okay, moving on, my girlfriend orders the steak and I attempted to order the roasted chicken. The server literally talked me out of ordering the chicken. This is what he said, " So we cook the chicken to order and it takes well over 30 minutes, maybe you should look at something else". He then starts naming off sushi rolls. So I want chicken and he is recommending sushi rolls. This makes no sense.

I again said, I really wanted the chicken, and again the server says "yeah the kitchen is really busy, it might take a long time". Not wanting to get into an argument with someone who is in control of my food, I changed to the steak. The steak was fine, portions are small, but it was good. Truffle fries were good, and things are looking up.

We wanted dessert and this is what really threw us. We ordered and we decided to watch the time. We placed the order at 8:25. At 8:40 our server said, 2 more minutes. At 8:51, the server says, almost there. At 8:55 the dessert was delivered. The dessert was actually very good but not sure it was worth the 30 minute wait.

Overall, C-. I feel the service is not doing Sugarcane justice. Also note, outdoor dining is HOT. No air circulation.

We sat outside. The garden/patio was very cute. Food was AMAZING.

We had the scallops, goat cheese croquets, bacon wrapped dates, duck leg waffles, and tuna tartare. For drinks we had the Spice of Love, regular mojitos, the Negroni boulevard, and an espresso martini. For dessert we had the Torrejas.

We were stuffed and happy. Our waitress was just such a pleasant human. She was helpful in recommending options since it was our first time. 10/10 would recommend. We will be coming back!

We’ve been coming to sugarcane for 5+ years, but lately, the food/service has been deteriorating.

Our waiter (Brian) was very rude. Took him a solid 10 minutes to come greet us.

When I ordered my food (burger) he told me there were no fries available. Ok…any subs? He said no. I told him I see a “baked potato” on the sides menu, can I just have that? He again said no, that he’d have to charge me the full side price.

I was pretty confused, seeing as this seemed like a no brainer…restaurant runs out of fries, give the customer a different side. Apparently not.

We ordered an app, then decided we’d go somewhere else. We weren’t feeling Brian’s attitude/vibe & didn’t want to ruin our dinner date.

We asked for the check, and it took him 20 mins to come back with my card. I ordered a $10 app, and I checked my Amex an hour after we left the restaurant, and my total was somehow $25… so this guy pretty much gave himself a 150% tip. Great.

Before we left, we spoke to the manager to give her feedback. She was ok, but didn’t seem too eager to retain us as patrons or rectify the situation on the spot.

After coming here for years, it’s sad to see the quality of the food/staff deteriorate. Would proceed with caution with coming here folks.
