    Excellent food and service. The breeze off the bay along with the setting sun (seated at 8:00 p.m.) kept the atmosphere very comfortable. Not a cheap meal, but you surely get what you pay for!

    Food was good but way over priced. Service was ok. It took 15 minutes just for someone to walk us to our table and we didn’t even get enough menus for everyone at the table. View is nice by the restaurant was less than 50% full so it killed the vibe a little bit to have such an empty space. I would not go back as the value was missing.

    Amara at ParaisoResponded 2 days agoHello there Maria, Thank you for taking the time to review us. It sounds like you should take advantage of Miami Spice plus our summer lunch specials ($5 frozen drinks & $1 oysters) to really increase the value of your experience. Please call us and we will share with you all the great features going on, including Happy Hour at the bar. Hope to see you soon! Amy Upthegrove, GM

    Overall a great night. The ambiance was a 10. We waited about 10 minutes to be seated, even though we had a reservation. But that was ok because we used that time to take photos. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu. The drinks came out pretty quickly. I had the Midas touch margarita which had actual gold in it lol. My daughter had the on the rocks. Both were good. The app shortly followed. My meal was delicious. I had the shrimp ceviche' to start and the grilled snapper with green curry. My daughter had the local snapper which tasted like tap water. That was the only disappointing part of the meal. The arroz Verde was delightful and tasty. For dessert I had the flan, which was delectable. Service did slow down after the main dishes were brought out and we had to refill our own water once; which is why I gave the service 4 stars. Overall, I enjoyed myself and I would definitely return.

    Amazing view and ambience, this is the best part of the place. The food and service could be better, the restaurant was empty and i had a reservation for 5pm, they only sit us at 5:30pm… For the price, the food was average, the meat came to us cold and everything seemed like it was heated on the microwave. I’m going back to the place again for drinks and the view, but not for the food, price or service.

    We went to Amara at Paraiso for a celebratory graduation dinner, and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent, and so was the service. The view is stunning, and our food and cocktails were delicious. We tried many of the small plates, all fantastic, and four of us shared three entrees. The fish of the night and two bone in ribeyes. Everyone was very happy. Save room for dessert, especially the dulce de leche flan.
