We sat outside where it was hot.Where is the hostess to turn on the fans overhead and she was unable to do that or didn’t try. Also there was somebody smoking not far from us who also have a dog. Not my favorite things while eating lunch. However the food was excellent as was the service. We ate at on the Miami spice menu so the price was good

Nice dinner with friends. Dined early. Not very busy. Wait staff had some issues timing food. Portions small but was all delicious. What is the deal with playing club music at all these restaurants. Completely disrupts ambiance!

We ask for the Miami Spice. The food was ok, but I have to say that the dessert (the cheescake), was amazing and the service, very good.

Service was impeccable. The staff were so very nice and allowed us to enjoy our dinner without being rushed out. We did a fixed menu $45pp, a bit pricey for the quantity of food. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious.

There are pros and cons to this Argentine grill. Pros: The food is good, and the service provided by David was excellent: he was cordial, prompt and attentive, paying attention to my frustration with issues I detail below and telling me that for months they have been bringing them up to management. Cons: 1. The terrace where you sit can be uncomfortably hot in a Miami Summer night, and there are no discrete and unobtrusive fans to mitigate the heat; 2. The lighting is very poor, so it is very difficult to read the menu or your food --you can use the light of your phone to read the menu but try peeling a bone with fork and knife while holding the phone; 3. In lieu of candles, there are oil lamps on the tables that produce fumes that ruin the smell and taste of the food --and if you push away the lamps you cannot see what you are eating; 4. The main-course dishes are the size of dessert dishes, which makes it uncomfortable to cut your meat and have a side order on the same plate --you have to eat the side order from the serving plate; 5. Being an Argentine restaurant, it's baffling that bread is not the facto brought to the table with the first dish, but rather that you have to ask for it and on top be charged for it; 6. A typical Argentine dessert never missing in any restaurant of Buenos Aires, crepes with dulce de leche, did not appear in the menu; and finally 7. a complaint I have for most upscale restaurantes in the US, as Leynia purports to be, there are no tablecloths on the tables, a less than hygienic attention.

Thank you to all of the staff at Leynia for making our wedding anniversary so special! From check in at reception to working with our waiter, Johnny, our experience was top-notch! And Johnny was so friendly and incredibly helpful relative to explaining and helping us choose items from the menu. My husband and I have visited this restaurant from when it was initially the Blue Door, then Bianca and in the last year — Leynia with such great experiences. The Seabass was absolutely outstanding, and likewise the eggplant Sautéed with raisins and fresh tomatoes, so unique and such great flavor! We also enjoyed the chicken appetizer as well which came as a small puff pastry perfect for two. We have always enjoyed the outdoor seating option, for which the staff worked so hard to help to accommodate us with that evening. This overlooks the gardens and pool area which are so beautifully maintained and with lovely lighting. It was very obvious that everyone around us was having a wonderful time as well. Thanks also for the great wine list! We look so forward to returning and wish all of you well in the summer ahead! Sincerely—Kim Armfield Uhas

We arrived early and had an Open Table reservation. I pointed out jokingly that we were three minutes early and I clearly stated my name and that we had reservation for two. The man instructed one of the woman to seat us at a particular table. It was a small bistro table at the top of a staircase outdoors- the worst table in the place. We pointed out that we had a reservation, more than once, and asked to be moved and got a slightly better table, but still at the top of the staircase. Our server, Ryan D., was attentive and gave excellent suggestions. The choclo empanada, served with a dollop of guacamole, and ceviche were both excellent. We shared a short rib special. It was tasty but a bit dry - $56 - bit pricey for what it was. The wines are priced at three times retail, which is higher than many restaurants. Finally, when I returned home I was informed by Open Table that I was a no show. If the three individuals at the podium had paid attention this wouldn’t have happened. It took several emails to straighten this out.

Sur la côte de bœuf, il ne doit rester que 400g ou moins une fois l’os enlevé. Trop juste pour deux.
