We were introduced to House several weeks ago by family members and enjoyed it very much. this time we went after a ball game, which was perfect since the kitchen was opened until 11:00 PM. Our server Jostin was excellent. We order the burger, roasted 1/2 chicken, brussels sprouts & flatbread. All very good!!!

We started with the chorizo spinach dip and east west oysters. For my main entree I always have their octopus, chorizo, and potato entree because I love it and it never disappoints. My husband had the salmon poke bowl. He enjoyed it.

Best place on Ponce de Leon.
Owner, Chef and Management are outstanding and it filters down to the Staff.
Let’s talk cuisine which is superb and superior to most any other restaurant in Coral Gables.
I’ve written before, this is not an inexpensive place however well worth it and just fun and enjoyable.
Flatbreads are delicious, they compare to a mini pizza and once you have one, it will change your thoughts on pizza, they are delicious!
We were 4, enjoyed Happy Hour at the bar and moved to the dining room for dinner, 2 bottles of wine and great meals, Enjoy!

Quiet night at the restaurant and the server was preoccupied and not engaged in giving good service on this night. Big place so they are probably not happy when it is quiet. I get it but, you were open. Food was okay. Watched another server break down the entire room alone as our server texted. You won't see us again.

Why Open Table uses the term “energetic” when it should use the word “noisy” or even better “uncomfortable”
The service was just terrible, there was glass on the seat so one of us had a small finger lacerated, our server made mistakes with the orders, the place is filthy. The food was marginally ok
Very disappointed

Food was decent comfort food but it was not noteworthy. The space was well done and because of the weather all the floor to ceiling doors were open. One nitpick: the tables for 2 are more like bistro tables. We were more comfortable when they gave us a table for 4.

With the exception of the young lady at the hostess stand that was extremely polite and helpful, everyone else we encountered was not as nice. The service was slow, almost non-existent. We had to waive down our server several times as NO one checked on us at all. it also took almost a half hour to get anyone to take our order to begin with. It was actually the hostess that got our drink order started and went more than once to retrieve our server. I should also mention there was a woman all in denim who appeared to maybe be a manager who was shouting at the hostess for no reason in front of all the other guests as she was assisting us with getting our table. It was uncomfortable for the guests and for the young lady she was yelling at, as well as unprofessional. It really set the mood the remainder of our stay. The food however, was really tasty, even though it was cold. But we had waited so long and were so hungry that there was no way we were sending it back. I don't know if i'll return or not; certainly not for brunch. its a shame because the location is nice, the ambiance is sleek, and the food is tasty but service makes or breaks an experience. I gave it three stars only because the hostess was exceptional. The rest of the staff could take example from her.

I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to go there for breakfast. The food (Eggs Benedict on Avacados and an Omelet) was rather average and under seasoned. The service and ambiance, however, was top notch. I would try it again for lunch or dinner, but not for Breakfast (or Brunch).

Great place to relax outdoors and people watch. Very expensive ($17 bucks for a Martini) so best to go after 4:00pm and take advantage of their Happy Hour price.
Seafood plate appetizer of shrimp and oysters was excellent! So fresh and delicious we ordered another.
Our Server was kind and attentive and we found out was also the Bartender which explained why Management also attended to us. Excellent food on every level and nicely presented. A short walk from Giralda or Miracle Mile and well worth it, we will return before the end of the month, Enjoy!

This washy first visit to House and expected good comfort. My dining mate ordered the hamburger and I had the ribs with creamed spinach. Both dishes were very good. The waiter promised that the spinach was the best and he was right. I would have given four stars but at the end of the meal the service was slow. I will definitely go back and will hope for better service.

Food was good. Service was better than acceptable. Being seated at 6:56 and being told that Happy Hour was “over” was a bit of a turn off. (It runs until 7:00)

My burger was undercooked. Sweet fries were excellent. My dining companions enjoyed their meals.

Very disappointed this time especially since it was lunch with a client. We were seated and after 10-15 minutes of waiting with no waiter, we asked for water. Another 10-15 minutes went by again and still no waiter again so we asked someone and finally 5-10 minutes later a waiter appeared to take our order. The food took longer than expected to come out especially when only half the restaurant was filled.

On 2/2 we dined at House with a party of 4. We were seated immediately and it went downhill from there. I had to ask the manager to get our waiter as after 10 minutes we had yet to see our waiter. My 1st request was for ice water and after asking 3-4 times I finally received my ice water.

The appetizers were brought to our table at separate times. I thought the appetizers were tasty.

For my entree I ordered the beef rib risotto with scallops. The scallops were tasty but the risotto was horrible and I couldn’t eat the risotto.

The Bread pudding was excellent.

Besides horrible service the noise level is way too loud. We were lucky to get a booth in the corner which helped with the noise. If you are seated in the middle, good luck having a conversation.

The prices were reasonable which is the only positive thing I can mention besides the desert.

This was my 2nd time visiting this restaurant and my last time.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. However, the music coming from the bar area was very high (it was a Friday night). I had trouble hearing the person who was sitting next to me. There was a strong cigar smell indoors because the doors leading to the outdoor eating area were wide open. Regardless, I will return because my meal was wonderful and the service was fantastic.

We have eaten at this restaurant many times sitting both inside and outside.
We are rarely there as a party of two.
We have even attended a Sunday brunch for approximately 100 guests recently in connection with a wedding.
The service and food are always outstanding.
Every time we have been here the kitchen accommodates our special menu requests and our large party seating needs with a smile.
Yesterday , our server accommodated our party of five’s changing and late arrival times with a smile and expedited services and also made great menu recommendations. I have never had a meal or dish that ever disappointed anyone in our party .
