No power- sat us before they told us, and then kicked us out since the power didn’t come back on. Overcharged for drinks while we sat there.

We had a horrible experience at Baoli. Shortly upon arrival, we were notified that the restaurant was having issues with their electrical wires, resulting in them needing to turn off the power in the middle of our meal for a short period of time. From there, instead of music, there was a constant buzzing from the speaker and we finished our meal is almost the dark. Service was extremely slow and inattentive and at the end of the meal when we spoke to the manager about our less than positive experience that evening, he was dismissive and played the victim instead of being apologetic that his customers had such a horrible meal. We will certainly NOT be returning to this restaurant anytime soon.

Best night EVER in Miami! The food was amazing, very fresh and delicious! Service was great. The place was packed, people dancing to house music, bottles popping left and right, flaming bar with dancers. The bill for 4 people with dinner and drinks was $1000 ( we had a few rounds of drinks, lol) We will return!

Our waitress wasn't very friendly but nice enough. We requested an outdoor table and were seated at the high-top table inside. Who spends $400 to sit at a high top table? We were able to switch tables but the hostess had some serious unnecessary attitude.

20% gratuity was already added to the bill when we reveived it - that’s fair enough for a party of four who received good service from the waitress all night. However, when I presented my credit card, the waitress asked me if I wanted to add another 15-25% for her, as the 20% already added to the bill was to be shared by the whole staff. I was a little bit shocked by this, but I still chose to add another 15% simply because I didn’t know what was customary (beeing a foreign citizen) and because I did not want to loose face or risk getting shouted at. Our bill of 725$ after tax suddenly became a bill of 1000$ after tip was added - an increase of 38%! That is just outrageous. Coming from a country where waitresses and service staff are paid decently and does not rely on tip, 20% tip is pretty much already. Add another 15% to that and I start to wonder wtf is up with these guys. That makes this place waay to expensive for my taste. On the plus side though; food was great, mood and crowd was great, and the overall experience was good. But the price? Come on, I can eat a 10-dish menu in a three star michelin restaurant for that price, including full wine serving. Either you add 20% to the bill and leave it with that, or you ask for extra without it already beeing added to the bill.

The service was horrible. It is a very snobby and stuck up place. After ordering our food our waitress came back twice to confirm what I ordered and still brought the wrong food out. Do NOT recommend very overpriced and terrible service.

Food and ambiance were great, however the service was awful. We saw our waiter maybe twice tops for a 2 hour dining experience. We spent $700+ on our bill so we expected MUCH better service. We would have spent even more if we had been asked if we needed another drink. We had to flag someone down to even get a second...
I would not go back.

Came to celebrate my sister’s 40th birthday. I had been to Baoli for Wednesday nights but not on a Saturday and had not had dinner there. Food is a bit pricey but the ambiance on the Miami scene is what you really pay for

I had read mixed reviews, so I was a bit nervous that the service would not be good or that we’d get a less than ideal table. I was pleasantly surprised and relieved that the night went pretty well. Nik was our server and he was pleasant and he brought us around of shots to finish out out the meal.

Some favorites —
Truffle mac n cheese
Truffle risotto (so creamy and delicious)
Lobster tempura
Mango Tango roll
Dessert Platter - By far the best part of the meal. Came with 3 desserts (at that time, chef chose Creme Brulee, Molton Cake, and Lemon Tart). We added the bread pudding. My girls cleaned that tray! The desserts were amazing. Came out in a gorgeous tray with fruit, decor, and a few macaroons. Was exceptional.

The manager came out and greeted us at the end of the meal too. Which was nice. Overall no real complaints and enjoyed the food, ambiance and service.
