Food came out at very different times than you might expect (salad came last), so as a result, 1 person ate and the other waited. Drinks were overly sweet (pet peeve). No salt or pepper on table (another pet peeve), and after we requested them and they were brought out, they took them away and we had to request them again. Overall, half of the dishes were really good, the others were fine. Brunch cost 2x what we spent at Yardbird the day before and we were 99% satisfied there. Would probably repeat at some point but won’t rush back, whereas we may now be Yardbird regulars even though it’s further away and has fewer meatless options.

Food was amazing and waiter provided excellent service. Hostess was very friendly and accommodated my reservation request.
We ordered Bacon Wrapped dates, scallops, sushi, ceviche and tuna tartare were all very delicious. Would definitely recommend!!!

On a trip to Miami we saw this restaurant reviewed on several sites. Made a reservation for lunch and sat outside although it was a little hot outside. Started with the duck leg & waffle which was very good. The duck was roasted perfectly and the meat fell off the bone. The best dish, however, was the duck fried rice. It had a fried egg on top and had plenty of duck meat with a perfect rice with some vegetables. We loved it. The drinks were really good too!

We had a group ranging in age from 32 to 90. I was worried about the noise level, but it really was ok. (Our reservation was for 6:30. ). My 90 yr old mother was very happy with her skirt steak and sweet potato. She also loved the bacon wrapped dates. The rest of us enjoyed a variety of small plates. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and didn’t steer us wrong. Everything was delicious! I also loved that they asked my mother if she would like a cushion for her chair when we were seated. They had me at hello.

Very yuppiesh restaurant. Tables were quite small and the noise level, with just a few customers, made it diffuclt to hear the server. At the beginning, we weren't very impressed. Then the food came. The appetizers were delicious and plentiful. My wife and I shared the bone-in ribeye and it was a very good cut of meat, more than enough for two (although at $62, it should be). The highlight was the nutella dessert. My wife and I agreed it was the best we have had in quite some time. While I wouldn't want to try to have a conversation there when the place is full, the food is worth a return trip.

Food came out separately. My husband was finished with his meal and we were still waiting for ours. My food was cold and had to be remade. Service was wonderful but I would not return.

Very happy with everything all around. Friendly greeting, too warm helpful server and delicious food. Drinks were very good and the atmosphere was an overall five. We Liked the music playing although it was a bit loud, still low enough to have conversation and we had our four year old with us. Definitely look forward to going back again!!

I thought it was a pretty good experience. It wasn’t too noisy, I was still able to have conversation across the table. The food was tasty, although a bit salty. The drinks were great, the service was top notch, and an over all good value for your dollar.

The food was interesting as usual, but many portion sizes are quite small for the cost. Our waitress was lovely. We ordered several rounds of mixed drinks and the bartender prepared each one different each time, sometimes with the wrong type of alcohol. Shame on the bartender.

There is nothing special about this restaurant. It’s overpriced and overhyped. Typical Miami with lack of substance, poor service and mediocre food. In various visits to this restaurant I’ve never really understood its popularity. Unfortunately due to a reservation snafu on Mother’s Day I was left with few choices and I was able to get a last-minute table at this restaurant. From the front desk attitude to the extreme heat it was a thoroughly negative experience. I truly wish I had not ended up here for Mother’s Day. All in all I really can’t see any reason why I’d go back unless I were in a similar circumstance with little choice and urgent need. When it came to the food, there again was nothing to write home about. It all came at almost the same time with us just starting on the apps when the entrees showed up. The avocado toast was absolutely soggy. The salmon Benedict was probably the most unremarkable breakfast I’ve had in a very long time with lumpy cold hollandaise sauce to boot. The Huevos rancheros were overly spicy with unnecessarily excessive amounts of hot peppers. The espresso was watery. The carrot soup was cloyingly sweet. The goat cheese croquettes had virtually no taste. I don’t know how that is even possible. The highlight was the Nutella sundae. So, skip this place is my recommendation. Too many good choices in this town to put up with this.
