    The service was not commensurate to the cost of the food, in that, it was in the mid to slightly higher -end type of restaurant; and when my tab is going to be $150.00 for tacos and a few drinks, I expect the service to be exceptional - - however, it was less than average. The waitress kept saying that the "kitchen was closing" and trying to rush us to order. She didn't try to give us any recommendations or information as to the dishes/drinks on the menu. If it wasn't my friend's birthday, and I had time to make a different reservation, I would not have stayed. Then after someone from the kitchen brought out our food, we never saw the waitress again until AT LEAST 30 minutes later when I inquired (to a different member of the staff) as to her whereabouts and essentially asked "do we have a waitress." Looking back on it, I am not sure why I tipped her, other than it being out of habit in doing so when I go out to eat. The food was decent, and the drinks were good; but service was trash. I have no reason to go back there.

    Way over priced for the food served. My server told me the a Kraft of sangria was 3 to 4 cups and it served two cups. She didn’t even pour the glass and when I got the bill it cost me $60. $200 lunch for 4 appetizers I have no issue paying $300 plus more for a meal but it has to be worth it. This was not

    Todo excelente como siempre que visito el restaurante lo único malo que me pareció una exageración entiendo los aumentos que han habido en Miami es una entrada de tartare arepas en 38$ en el menú no dice que vienen solo 2 arepas cuando llego la entrada éramos 3 personas y nos quedamos viendo las caras por tan bella entrada en 38$ y dos arepas pequeñas me pareció un robo

    It is a beautiful restaurant with a gorgeous view and a menu that is limited but delicious. My only disappointment is while seated outside there was no linens. My day tonight split the porterhouse for two, and it was cooked perfectly. I felt like I was was a picnic on the beach, Instead of waterfront dining. The server was excellent the appetizers were excellent, it is definitely worth a repeat with a different mindset if sitting outdoors

    Excelente experiencia con este restaurante. Nos sentamos afuera, con una vista increíble. El ambiente era espectacular, tranquilo, con una buena brisa. Entre la decoración y el lugar, crea el ambiente perfecto para tener un buen tiempo. La comida y tragos son de los mejores que vas a probar en todo Florida. Todo lo que pedimos para comer lo valió, una comida mejor que la otra. El servicio fue excelente, para nada invasivo y al mismo tiempo siempre atentos por si necesitábamos algo. Muy fancy todo! 100/100

    I booked our table for three for my parents and myself. Early dinner during the week and the heat was not as blaring as usual outside. Amara is the right place to experience phenomenal food, service, and views. We had terrific recommendations from Carolina that indulged us with her charisma and knowledge. The menu though a bit on the pricer side it is very worthy of every dollar spent. My parents devoured the entire meal and it made me so happy to see them swooning over a place their daughter can treat them to. The restaurant was also playing Colombian cumbia and at that very moment I felt complete ✨ thank you!

    The service was amazing, our waitress was super friendly. The ambient was great such a nice place with quite the selection of wines which I loved. The food could’ve been a bit better in the sense of taste it just felt a bit plain. We got the yuca bites from the appetizer and it just felt a bit dry it needed a sauce to go with it. For Entree I had the local fish which was swordfish and my girlfriend had the chicken both dishes looked delicious but needed a bit more seasoning or perhaps more flavor other than that great place :).

    The food was excellent and service was very good. It was our first time at the restaurant and made reservations in advance. We were seated under cover, which I guess what good in case it rains. Yet, it was next to the server station and the door to the inside. It was also poorly lit and hard to read the menu. It was pretty congested area with servers and food delivery and certainly not the best seating. I know now to suggest outside outside closer to thee we water and or the upstairs which was closed for construction?

    Absolutely spectacular. I will 100% go back whenever I'm in Miami. This place checked all of the boxes. Simple menu, Latin-influenced, beautiful atmosphere and artfully crafted. I would recommend this to anyone with a moderate budget for food. We spent a lot, close to $340 between the two of us, but we ordered a lot and don't regret any of it. If you go, please get the octopus, not overcooked and beautifully accompanied by uplifting flavors and textures; not to mention, well-seasoned. Cheese puffs were nice but I don't think the term "puff" really suits it. The steak was divine and the grilled greens with flavorful sauce and pico checked every box. Just to put into perspective how much I like this place, they had 2 desserts available: flan and tres leches, both of which I don't order as I don't typically enjoy them, I'm more of a chocolate or salty dessert kind of person but we did order both to just see what it was like, and oh my goodness, what a fantastic finish to a perfectly balanced meal. Please go. Order: Half dozen oysters Ceviche Cheese puffs Grilled octopus 10oz steak Mushrooms Dessert: Tres leches Flan

    I have been there a few times and do not recall ever the food being such poor quality. There were two dishes that came out completely cold and the beef fajitas dish was not only just warm but the steak was swimming in a pool of grease. Terrible quality for the price.

    Lovely setting and ambience. Service was good. Food varied from underwhelming to tasty, but with no remarkably delicious or unusually inventive dishes. A solid option for the setting alone. Something else to keep in mind: The seafood dishes tended to be more well-prepared & flavorful than the non-seafood items—highlights include the crab tostada and whole grilled red snapper. In my case, I was especially disappointed that the much-acclaimed octopus was unavailable despite still being listed on the menu.

    Service was very disappointing. It was slow, even though they were half empty. Then there was an order issue: my friend doesn’t like cilantro and asked the waiter if his dish had any. She said only the sauce and so he asked for it without the sauce. 30min later, when the dishes are finally coming, the waiter comes and asks if here really is allergic since the fish he ordered is marinated in cilantro… my friend says he is bit allergic but that he is not having the fish, so he asks for the fastest item on the menu - we were pretty hungry at this point. When the check comes, the fish is there - it is as if they couldn’t care less about the incident. We asked for it to be removed from the check and the obliged. But given the prices of this place, this is very disappointing service and everything was very slow. I won’t be returning

    Server was not trained well on welcoming customers. Lacked a professional attitude of how to serve. Lacked effort to even go get the kids menu, even after asking to see it. Cheap tasting appetizers for top $. The entree was worth the price , as well as dessert. Overall spend $300, but didn’t get the value for the buck. I would recommend only for the view and ambience, not the service of our waiter.

    Excellent food, service and ambiance! Our main course was taking a little long and before we even mentioned it to our server, the manager came to the table to apologize for the long wait and offered us a round of free drinks. We really appreciated the attentiveness, and the food was so delicious it was certainly worth the wait.
