    Everything about this place was great. For appetizer I had coconut shrimp and lobster bisque. That was a 10/10. For the entree I had lobster ravioli and shrimp 10/10 and the coconut flan and chocolate brownie and icrecream was great as well.

    Great fresh seafood with a view of the bay! Can see the fisherman feeding the fish next to our table. Saw 2 birthday celebrations. Reasonable price for outstanding food quality.

    The food and service was great. Our server was Emilio and he was terrific. We were a party of 4 and went on Saturday night. We originally requested outside but switched to inside...outside seating was packed with people and it was extremely hot. Inside the tables were more spread apart and it was slightly cooler...but still hot. They need to work on their air-conditioning ...it was totally insufficient. The other negative was that the restaurants valet parking was full and we were there before 7 pm. The Miami River area is devoid of parking but luckily we were able to valet at the restaurant next door. We would recommend this restaurant but go at a cooler time of year.

    Only complaint would be how close the tables are stacked on top of eachother! Food, service, views, menu options, all were excellent. Just felt very claustrophobic, even outside. I couldn’t back my chair up or get comfy because the table behind was literally on my back. The seating inside is also very tight. Would rather have to wait and have less seating then be stacked so tightly!

    Hemos estado varias veces en este lugar. Pero esta vez fue una total decepción y vergonzoso porque fuimos con amistades desde otro estado. Los habíamos invitado a comer este Porque nos parecía algo que se debe hacer cuando viajas a mi Miami. El valet parking y la mesera muy poco agradables. La comida ok. El olor del perfume del baño tan fuerte que se mezclaba con el olor a marisco fue desagradable y mucho calor. No creo que regrese

    Service extremely slow. We were a table of two and our waitress was clearly focused on the larger tables. Took forever to order anything. Then when we did, I ordered items exactly off the menu but was told it was called something else in a very rude manner when I challenged to ensure I was getting what I ordered. Boats docked for service and played horrible and loud music.

    Service was timely but some of the portions leaved a lot to be desired. For example the coleslaw was just a spoonful that accompanied my lunch . In addition it tipped over when the waitress brought it to my table and it soaked my sandwich bread . My guest towel accidentally fell on the floor. The waitress instead of replacing it with a new one told her to pick it up and use it . Valet parking is quite expensive.

    Sadly we sat outside for dinner and between the music being played by the restaurant and the boat trash it was impossible to truly enjoy. The dock master never addressed it, even after a mother with 2 young children complained. We have the seafood paella for two which was just average, I haven’t been back here in a long time and I was surprised at the entire experience. $15 to Valet..$20 If you want it parked closer. I felt they’re just gonna be a lot more for the money spent

    Went here because we had some friends in town and wanted to try it out. Service was great! We hadn’t realized how late it was and our server was so kind and didn’t rush us at all. She let us enjoy our time very patiently. Food was overpriced for quality and what you received. The apps were EXTREMELY small, maybe good for one person. We were 4 and maybe got two to three bites of each? The atmosphere was nice, we were able to sit by the rail and see the boats. Tables were pretty close together and we had to move our table because I was squished behind a pole. Overall, cute place, ok food, and I would go back maybe just to have a couple drinks and enjoy the view.

    Very much enjoyed our dinner at Casablanca. One of us had the Grilled Parrillada which all the seafood was grilled perfectly and there was an abundance of it! Two of us ordered the Seafood Zarzuella which has a very good selection of seafood in a delicious tomato saffron broth/sauce. We sat riverside and watched the boats while dining. Our waitress was outstanding as well. Definitely a good find while visiting Miami!
