A story in contrasts, The Bazaar menu blends tradition and ingenuity in true Spanish style and mixes them with influences from South Beach’s local Latin flavors and rich history.

Great ambience, lovely waiter, and delicious food!!
The service and food were excellent. We had the tasting menu to experience all the different flavors and it was worth it. The only thing a little strange is that the dinning room is located between the lobby and the pool area so the guests have to go thru the dinning area to access the lobby or pool.
Food was outstanding. Server gave is his recommendations from an expansive menu and it sure didn’t disappoint. Although I bet any choice would have been superb. Best meal had in a long time!
Amazing dishes with incredible flavors. This is our second visit and like the first time, loved everything. We’ll be back many more times.
Service, room and food quality were outstanding. Be prepared for Miami “strip” pricing.
Vibrant scene and great food! Great for people watching!
Perfect for a family dinner or date.
I would have very much liked to leave a 5-star review for this restaurant because of the reputation that Chef José Andrés has worldwide in addition to his humanitarian efforts through WCK. We chose this restaurant because it is part of the Miami Spice Restaurants Month. We planned on going there just for the $39 3-course prix fixe menu but ended up spending $300 after taxes and service charge because there were so many things we wanted to try. The initial experience was great as we were greeted politely by the hostess and were seated briefly after checking in. Then our server, Louis, came and greeted us which followed by water service and taking our drink order. The drinks took some time to come but that was fine because that gave Louis the time to give us a rundown of the menu. Once we placed the order, I would say that is when it started to go downhill. Mainly it has to do with the timing of every course. It took a while for the first course to arrive and each subsequent course seem to have taken 10 minutes in between. Keep in mind, most of the initial course were 1-bite sized food, so it didn't take but a few seconds to eat them. When it finally came the time for the most substantial food (carnes y mariscos), not only did both entrees didn't come out at the same time, we were told that the fish we ordered well over an hour ago was sold out. How could that have happened in a restaurant this caliber? So, we had to choose something else. Then, we waited for probably close to 20 minutes for the deserts which we actually left without ever getting them. I would say that our server and the manager on duty handled the situation at the end as professionally as possible and I give them credit for that. However, if this had happened at a 3-star restaurant, I would have forgiven them and gave a higher star review. I don't know where the breakdown occurred , but at a 5-star restaurant on South Beach, we should have received a 5-star experience every time.
It was a very nice night! Johnny and the other waiter were very attentive and descriptive and provide us with good advices to pick up the right tapas. The ceviche is incredible and definitively a must have.
Definitively recommend for a date or a special occasion! It was very nice to share tapas and discover the different flavors from Jose Andres cuisine!
We had a wonderful experience. The food was amazing.
We indulged in the tasting menu. It’s was absolutely delightful. Each plate was unique and executed well. Cocktail service was a bit slow but not enough to hinder our good time. We would gladly return in the future.
The.... well the everything is s
The food was inventive and eclectic. I wished there was something that amazed with its flavor. Everything was good, but not great. Presentation of dishes were impeccable.
Since I lived in Spain...I was really looking for a couple dishes. Particularly the national dish of Spain... tortilla española. But they were out of that dish (mostly potatoes & eggs) and were also out of at least 4 or 5 other dishes.
So I’d suggest printing some new menus (definitely with a larger font) that remove 86 items.
We were sat immediately by the entrance and has mentioned it was both our first time to the restaurant and my companion’a first time in Miami. But I don’t believe anyone read that note.
Overall, I expected next level with service, decor, food all around for the ~$250 meal we had.
I was disappointed that nothing blew me away with excitement.
Went to support the restaurant. I felt the food was not as good as always in the past.I'm guessing the chef was not there.
Absolutely fantastic food and service!!
Excellent service, very attentive staff food was exceptional I would come back
Great experience in these Now Times, not too sticky outdoors, money crowd, we were the paupers doing Miami Spice, which is 5 courses. With three excellent drinks and espresso and a good tip, $180.00. A wonderful place to treat your self or for a (smallish) celebration. Take care and support our local establishments, small or large.
Our waiter Johnny would pull his face mask down every time he spoke (not sure he understands the purpose of the mask!)
We dined outside which was a nice atmosphere. We had two cocktails each and had the tasting menu, which came out to $403 total for two people. Was it worth it? Not really. The first half of the menu (smaller dishes) were more exciting and satisfying than the main/entree dishes.
Our favorite was the dragon fruit ceviche. One entree was a plastic bag they cut open to reveal a piece of salmon and sauce; they said the plastic bag was from Italy - the taste was mediocre, the fish was slightly overdone.
I would recommend going for a cocktail and small bites to enjoy the scenery. At this price point the food should be the star; we felt the focus was on the “packaging” and showmanship. Still a lovely hotel and ambiance.
One of the best place in Miami to celebrate special occasion! They were out of a couple things that we really wanted to try but overall a great experience!
Excellent food and service was amazing. Thanks javier for a great experience as always.
Not worth the money, absolutely nothing special about the food, NOTHING. Sorry to say.
Always a great place for dinner, food and service best in town.
I am sorry guys to be repetitive but, The Bazaar by José Andrés is and always will be my FAVORITE restaurant in Miami Beach. Even now with all the restrictions due to Covid-19 we managed to have a wonderful experience.
We sat outside for dinner, there was a great breeze and the fans helped with the heat, wonderful experience, the service was great and the food is OUTSTANDING. We wanted to celebrate so we had the tasting menu, it cost $ 125 which you might think it is expensive but, to be honest with you, if I had to choose between going two or three times and have regular dinners or maybe not even that great, I would rather just go once and enjoy this ❤️
We had 15 different dishes, some of these are bite size so you are not too full at the end of it, you just feel great and the flavors and the combinations, well, no words can explain it, you must try it ❤️@bazaarbyjose @chefjoseandres

Amazing! Highly recommend for dates or special occasions
Every dish we ordered was amazing and on point! Could have skipped the Bagels & Lox but our favorite dishes were the Kueh Pai Ti, Japanese Tacos, Bao con Lechon, and the black "paella" pasta dish. The ambiance inside left little to be desired with strange lighting, but honestly, there isn't great ambiance anywhere during this period of COVID. All in all, would highly recommend!
Food was great and the service was outstanding. Went there twice within the same weekend. So that should say a lot about the quality.
This is a second visit to Bazaar and our second tasting menu experience. The first experience was fantastic however disappointed that 2 years later the tasting menu is virtually the same. We're very disappointed in the lack of creativity
Exceptional experience! My favorite restaurant in South Beach!
The bao buns and deconstructed key lime pie are phenomenal! The chicken croquetas come in a very amusing presentation which made the experience more enjoyable. The servers were very knowledgeable on each of the dishes. Overall, great experience!
The service was excellent, and the food was phenomenal!
Food and our server Jonny were excellent as always. Big problem with the kitchen being very slow getting out the food. After 90 minutes we had received only two of five courses. Not acceptable.
Amazing food, and even more amazing service Luis helped us out and was amazing every step of the way!
The Bazaar was outstanding as usual! The Food & the Service are tops. Whenever we are in Miami, Bazaar is always one of our first stops. Thank you all for a very special night
Best restaurant I’ve been to in the U.S!! Great experience, wonderful food and exquisite decoration. A 10!
We did the Miami Spice menu which was excellent- very different and delicious. I had an issue with the hostess . First I called 2 times and left messages to please be call back-it never happened. I wrote on open table that i requested a table outside. I called a third time and a human answered. I verified that they knew that we needed a table outside. This was i believe 2 weeks after restaurants opened on south beach. It was my sons birthday and our first venture to a restaurant. I was very upset when i got there and they did not have an outside table available. Luckily someone left after 15 minutes and we were seated. This issue was not properly handled. it should be noted that the man on the closes table to us was chain smoking. I do not know if you can ever win but overall the experience and the food were excellent.
This will always be a special place. I’m glad it reopen. Great food great service.
We had seven different plates. Each and every one was a spectacular experience. The service was stellar. This was definitely the culinary pinnacle of our South Beach vacation.
Amazing Miami Spice Menu! Excelent service. Great ambience.
My boyfriend and I went for the Miami Spice experience and for the amount of courses, it was worth the value. We even tried outside of the Miami Spice Menu and also tried the wine list. The food was immaculate and delicious. The ambience was very peaceful and luxurious. I highly recommend going there again.
Great atmosphere and awesome service. It is always a pleasure to come back to such a wonderful foodie experience. And the Bazaar did not lose its magnificent touch of welcoming us.
Even only 1 week after the reopening, it was undoubtedly up to the expectations.
