Overall nice place with a great view. Great food, but overall pricing on alcohol is very high and not listed on any menu (drink menu).
Excellent Service, Robert (Cuban) the waitress it was so nice, and helpful. Amazing view of the city of Miami and the food was Delicious. Definitely I will recommend this place.
Ingredient quality is top-notch but the cooks on duty that night seem to have a very heavy hand with salt which unfortunately overwhelmed the food.
The food was great but not amazing like it used to.
I didn’t see much disinfection going on between customers . I saw a lot of napkins and other elements flying and then landing on the floor with nobody picking it up... I had to mention it to the Manager for them to do Sthg about it!
At last the prices increased a lot as well as the valet parking. Now you have no possibility to self park. You have to give ur car to valet parking that drives you car like if there were on a formula 1 competition.
Very disappointed this time at different levels.
Noise level was too loud.
Food was excellent
Server/waitress was phenomenal
Delicious food and Amazing view. An outstanding gem !
Great service. Lively.
Bad service, high noise level, quality price-ratio bad
Beautiful views to showcase the beauty of Miami! Must go to place.
No me gusto el servicio que recibido. Extremadamente lento y de poca gestión por parte de la mesera que nos atendió.
Puedo recomendar el lugar, pero con esta observación.
Disappointing brunch experience, dishes were served at room temperature, NY steak steak was overcooked, hash potatoes were soggy and cold, brunch eggs benedicts came with multigrain ciabatta breach, not disclosed in the menu. No other bread option. It seemed as there was no chef in the kitchen that day.
Unbelievable views and a highlight of our trip. Highly recommend
Food was okay service was amazing as well as the view to the city of Miami .
My server did Not know what oyster Rockefeller was, he didn’t ask us if we wanted more water
20 mn for a drink
No special offer
No refill offer on drink or water
Very loud music
Food was good
It was very expensive for the amount of food you get. The food we received was cold and had to be sent back in which they didn’t have the fish anymore and a substitute was sent out but we paid the same price. The appetizers were extremely small for $20 price range. The party boats that surround the area is insane and kids are partying with music loud until all hours which is fine by for all the to be allowed plus only have valet parking it is definitely NOT worth the amount you pay!!
I have been here a few about 5 times before. It is usually our go to place when we visit Miami . This time I felt like they Were overbooked and understaffed. Our service was terrible and the food had absolutely no taste . When we first arrived the hostess told us even though we requested outside that there was no outside seating for the night . After we sat at an inside table they proceeded to seat five tables outside. We asked again and they said there was not any outside seating outside because of weather . Five minutes later three more parties were seated outside.
I was very disappointed with the rudeness , the service and the quality of food . I left hungry because the food was awful !
Wonderful service and food. Our waitress really went the extra mile by helping with pictures and creating a great atmosphere.
Bad customer service, first I made the reservation a week in advance and asked to be seated next to the windows near the bar, they ignored also I was served by a waitress named Isabel who was nothing professional and not friendly, she treated us like we were Begging for the service, it took me half an hour to bring us a drink and when I called her, she turned around and saw me like she wants to hit me although they changed our waiter, we already had the bitter taste and we did
not enjoy anything , this was my place every saturday for brunch i won't be back anymore
I went here for a brunch and each meal had a small problem; the tortillas that held the fish tacos were cold, biscayne burger was cooked medium instead of medium rare, and one egg (crab cake benedict) was boiled hard. Despite these problems the food was still tasty, great service and mimosas. Additionally, the view was incredible but our table was in front of the bar service where the waiters picked up drinks so it was extremely loud, and there was something smeared on the glass right near our table. Maybe they had an off day, but for the price paid, these small mistakes should have been minimized. Overall this didn't make the experience unenjoyable.
really good food and great view would highly recommend
Really bad experience this time.. restaurant was pretty empty and the service was super slow. Meat was hard, sea bass on top of the mashed plantain, no lime on the side, we had to ask for napkins. Just horrible. Mac and cheese tasted bad..
They had great food. Great service and the prices are reasonable.
For such an "urban dictionary" name, this restaurant is really upscale. The ambience and seating are wonderful; they are genuinely keeping people separate in these covid times. The food is good, but somewhat overpriced. Several fantastic side dishes (peruvian goat cheese mashed potatoes!!) So skip the appetizers, go straight for entree, extra side starches if desired, and consider dessert.
El lugar es divino. Paga la vista de downtown.
Cocina cierra 9:30. No deberían tomar reservas más allá de (:30
Great View, staff very accommodating . I would just prefer a white tablecloth setting for this type of location and food/ drink price. Entry / foyer is gorgeous, wine corridor very nice, however the dining room decor & ambiance fell short of expectations. Other than that it was a nice evening.
I went to this place for the view and I wasn’t disappointed even tho we didn’t sit outdoors as we wanted because the rain, the skyline of Miami from here is really cool and the bottomless mimosas were great! However the food and the ambience wasn’t worth the price, here it says it’s $$ we’ll is not, it wouldn’t matter if the food was good but the only thing we probably enjoyed was the fries, we felt like eating in a regular diner and the staff on the reception wasn’t welcoming but the server we had was nice and friendly.
Service was awful and we are regulars... talked to the manager and explained everything that has happened- ZERO actions on his end
Enjoyed the beautiful skyline of Miami.
The hostess aren’t very hospitable. We requested a table for 4 outside, the hostess tells me there are no tables available outside when in fact there was one table with 4 chairs. She tells me that table is for 6 when clearly there were only 4 chairs at the table. And every table of 4 outside had only 2 people at each table. We ended up sitting at the table outside where the manager then approaches us to confirm if we were ordering entrees because if we sat there we had to order entrees. That made us feel extremely uncomfortable and unwelcome, meanwhile a table of 4 with only 2 people were only drinking sparkling the entire time. Why don’t they have to order an entree? Thankfully we had an excellent waitress, Emily, who masked our terrible experience at the beginning and made our dinner enjoyable. We ordered appetizers, drinks, and entrees, as planned. The view of the Miami skyline at sunset was pretty amazing too.
Great place for celebrating any event from romantic to family. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding! We had a table in the bar with a fantastic view of the city. We went at 6:30 and were able to catch the sunset and the city lights at night! Overall, fantastic experience!!
We were told at the checking that they were limiting the stays for 2 hours, no explanations why! I think is was rude a discouraging so we limited our food to the minimum and leave. Not coming back!
Food was excellent. My only complaint is that when I made the reservation I requested outdoor seating and no on annotated it in the reservation. This cause major upset in my family. I ended up eating with my mother.
Love this place, the view is amazing and good food. Can recommend oysters
It was fantastic! The view, the food, the ambiance all fantastic. Our server was polite and attentive. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!!!
Loved It!!! Good to go with kids.
If you do nothing else, please try to sea bass!! It literally melts in your mouth! Great flavor! Some of the best I’ve ever had!
We went for a late brunch so the food was a bit stale. Its a bit over priced and though its a beautiful skyline view the table was timed at 2hours. The service was a bit slow for our liking but over all good little restaurant to fall back on for an unexpected date.
