    The overall experience is very good. The food was not great. My chicken came out as dry as cotton. They were very good about taking the food back. The second attempt was much better. The other food came out OK. The price is high, but you are paying for the beautiful views of Miami, being on the water and watching the boats. It is a great place to bring out of town guests.

    I was excited to find this restaurant in Miami, and was disappointed with the long wait to get seated, and then orders taken and finally served! The food was pricey, as all the restaurants we’ve tried in Miami.

    I am saddened, by this place. It breaks my heart that the quality has gone down since I was last here 20years ago. The staff did great, they did their best to make our experience the best they could. It was the quality of the food was mediocre at best and overpriced. I felt like the money I spent was for the beautiful view, and friendly service only. I hope that this message finds it way to someone that can revive the memory of what this place use to be.

    Went for my fiancé birthday and we’ve never been to Miami before so this was definitely a perfect restaurant to enjoy the most beautiful view of Miami. The food was spectacular. Everything was great except for the fact that the food took so long to come and our server didn’t come to us many times. We went on a Wednesday so can’t imagine a busy weekend. I also requested a bday cake to sing him happy bday I put it on the notes on open table as well as spoke directly to the manager and host as a reminder and our server never brought the cake out which was a let down and ruined the surprise. The food and check took so long anyway so I couldn’t wait anymore.

    Best views in Miami. Small and uninspired menu appetizers & meals selections/choices and quality of food was not close to up to par with the views. Insufficient dining space and tables/chairs too small. Too bad. With a great menu and better seating, this place could be the talk of Miami. Short-staffed but not their fault as every restaurant is suffering from a lack of staff

    The customer service was excellent and the food was also great. The only thing I would improve would be the outside seating should have fans or something like that because not all the umbrellas work and even if you get one, the sun beams right in front of you but there’s no wind so it is very hot.

    Total y absolutamente overrated. Desde la atención en la recepción hasta la entrega de la cuenta el servicio es malo, tirando a pésimo. A pesar de tener una reservación te invitan a sentarte y esperar 20 minutos para pasar a tu mesa (eso para estar adentro, para afuera era más de 1h de espera). Una vez sentados la mesera se tardó, al menos, 15 minutos en pasar a preguntar si queríamos algo de beber. La comanda fue mal tomada y el servicio fue aún peor: dos copas de champaña se convirtieron en dos copas de Prosecco, las tres entradas para compartir se convirtieron en 2 pues señor olvidaron los camarones (que no obstante sí se incluyeron en la cuenta y tuve que pedir que nos las borren) la recomendación de la mesera, evidentemente, fue lo más caro del menú pues fue un tomahawk para compartir entre un adulto y tres niños pequeños (10, 9 y 7 años) y un pescado para mi esposa. Tiempo de espera para recibir las entradas… entre 20 y 25 mins. Tiempo de espera para recibir los platos fuertes? Alrededor de 45 minutos. Respecto a la calidad de la comida podemos decir que fue mediocre. Cuando te venden un tomahawk en 170 dólares, lo pides medium rare y te lo traen pasado de medio pues se te hace nudo el estómago. La mesera nos preguntó que porqué no lo habíamos regresado a lo cual se ganó un tajante “llevamos 45 minutos esperando desde las entradas y los niños están a punto de dormir (ya eran las 10 de la noche pasadas), simplemente no podemos esperar otros 45 minutos!”. Evidentemente no pedimos postres. Cuando te llega una cuenta de más de 550 dólares por una experiencia mala es imposible no escribir una reseña avisando a los demás. Eso sí, la vista muy bonita. Cosa que se quita rápido cuando te cobran los 20 dólares del valet parking “VIP” ya que, en caso de tomar el “normal” te avisan que tu coche puede tardar hasta 20 minutos. No regresaremos.

    From walking in to walking out it is a great experience. If I had to nitpick, I would say the key lime pie for dessert could be better. Creamed corn and sweet plantain mash were next level. Steaks cooked properly and high quality.
