Imaginative menu, quirky and very Miami atmosphere -- usually a fun experience. But when we took friends for a weekend brunch recently, the noise level was so high we couldn't have a conversation. And worsened by too-loud yet still unhearable music.

Great cocktails and ambiance. Brought friends for the first time and were raving about the Waygu sliders and crunchy tuna bites only to discover neither was on the menu for Basel weekend. Will be sure to return when they’re back on the menu!

A different experience. Food is mostly smallish plates, but they are bigger than tapas. They come out when they are ready, not in any logical or menu driven order. The quality of the food is good, basically. It's a little noisy because there are almost no soft surfaces in the place, but the variety of foods -- crudo, raw, grilled -- and types -- Japanese, Korean, American -- is interesting.

The food was excellent, exceeded my expectations, powerful flavors from the veggie dishes like the Brussels sprouts, fresh and refreshing seafood dishes like the sushi rolls and grilled octopus and really savory and comforting small plates like the goat cheese croquettes and pig ear. I had a great time.
Also, our server Cyndel was really sweet and patient she answered all of my questions and offered cocktail recommendations that didn’t disappoint.

Thanksgiving dinner, Tapas style? What a treat, different, unusual and the best turkey we have eaten in all our years of celebrating Thanksgiving. We had beet and arugula salad and the beets were perfectly cooked. The dates were the best ever. Bread stuffing or dressing was good, hot, moist and delicious and the turkey was perfectly cooked and the flavor, oh my, indescribable and we wanted more. We also had cauliflower that was again different and perfectly cooked. Would we come back? In a heartbeat. The weather outside was perfect but we could imagine that in the heat of summer, it would be an uncomfortable setting. Thank you to the chef, Nicholas our server, and the staff for working Thanksgiving and providing us with an excellent holiday dinner.

I always have the most amazing time when I dine at Sugarcane. The waiters are always super nice. The food is exquisite and unique. Portion sizes are perfect and the bill isn’t outrageous. Don’t miss out and try the Brussels Sprouts! Bacon wrapped dates are also really good and sweet. Highly recommend this place!

Sugarcane did it again! Outstanding. On this visit, we had friends visiting Miami from upstate New York. They picked Miami as their destination and were ready to delve into the rich culture that Miami has. It was a no-brainer to take them to Sugarcane where the mojitos were flowing. The food is actually more intoxicating than the liquor. We ordered so many items from the small plates - Duck ) And, oh - the torrejas! heaven! This place is great for a date, a group of friends and even a larger family or celebration. People were still coming in when we left...close to 11:15! You must go!

Tapas style, great tasting dishes as usual. Unfortunately the service fell short on this trip half way thru our meal. One item ordered wasn't served and our waiter was no where to be found when we were ready to order more stuff. We had to bother one of the table staff for soy sauce and chop sticks to eat our sushi dish.

I will frequent Sugarcane more when the weather cools down. There are way too many flies inside the restaurant, flying around our plates, drinks and food since the doors are open. It is so hot inside the restaurant, again because the doors are open. I have visited twice this month for business lunches and I can tell my clients are uncomfortable with the temperature inside the venue. Can't wait for temperates to drop and I will be there more often! Love the food and happy hour menu!

However we haven’t been able to try your octopus, lamb, snapper and dates because we have a garlic intolerance.
Would you ever consider accommodating a garlic intolerance?

We have been dining at Sugarcane for many years and have always had a very good experience. The food is always very good and the service is attentive. Unfortunately, the last 2 times the A/C was not working. The first time was in late June and the last time was on Saturday the 13th. We thought the June visit was an aberration but then had the same experience on Saturday. At a minimum, they should have informed us of this fact before seating us and maybe giving us the option of sitting outside or let us know when we made the reservation. They ended up putting a big fan on us towards the end of the meal. By then it was too late. Overall, the evening was not enjoyable and we will think twice about going back until they fix the A/C.

I’ve been here multiple times and have never been disappointed. The service for brunch was impeccable and we couldn’t take a sip of water without our glass being refilled. We shared a bunch of brunch items and definitely recommend the bread basket which was an assortment of different pastries that changes daily, as well as the carbonara. Everything came in large portions and we had plenty of food to share as well as some leftovers to take home.
