Great location with boats mooring up miami style to eat there. Food was very authentic-not pretentious and very good service. Good selection on menu and definitely something for a visitor to Miami not to miss. I will definitely go there again

It really is a beautiful experience sitting right on the Miami River watching million Dollar yachts go by.
It was a Saturday night maybe an off night as soon as we walked in, the hostess, which was an older mature lady (who I’m not knocking because that’s what I am) but she immediately said that I didn’t have any reservations.
I have never had a problem with my open table reservations. Luckily another hostess came by and noted that my name was definitely there.
The food was average. Granted it is very fresh fish and seafood but the tuna that I ordered was just lacking in flavor and I ordered it rare it still was a little bit more overcooked. My sauce for my tuna entree was delivered when l was almost finished eating.
Sides were awful.
Our waiter would not come by our table but luckily the bus boy would be the one that was very helpful. I don’t think I’m going back there for a long time

I wrongly assumed it was going to be the perfect place for lunch but the service was super slow. Even when we order the check they took forever to check us out.

This is a great setting! Such a fun and lively place to eat, right on the river with boats pulling up. The food was good and reasonably priced. We loved it.

Reservations for brunch on Father's Day, the staff was the star of the restaurant! Everyone was so pleasant and ready to assist. Our table was right by the river and we saw boats cruising through. Although we were seated outside, we never felt hot or stuffy with the plentiful fans creating a breeze. We caught a glimpse of their fresh catches being prepared, wow! Lobster & shrimp omelette had plentiful chunks of seafood, peppers and cheese, it was great! Pancakes were solid. My favorite was the guava cheesecake!! Will return for lunch or dinner!

Went to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday , it wasn’t acknowledged at all . Not only was the waitress hasty she was rude with hand gestures and didn’t stay long enough to listen to our order “Heidi” Was her name but spelled with a “G” ( Geidi ) I’ll always remember because it was an uncommon spelling . She didn’t ask us about dessert , didn’t ask if we wanted refills we had to stop other waiters for service . Food was amazing , service was not what I thought it would be. At all. Not satisfied .

The food was great, and the waiter was friendly, but we waited 90 minutes for our food, the ‘view’ wasn’t a view and it was pricey for what you got. Won’t be going back.

The atmosphere is amazing, being at the edge of the Miami River and watching the boats go by, as you enjoy the amazing food served here, can't get any better. All of the selections I have ordered, are truly amazing. They have something for everyone. The portion sizes are of good size, even for those with hearty appetites. The prices are reasonable for what you get. The service is top notch as well, your order is taken quickly, and they start bringing out the food with impeccable timing.
