    Went here on Friday when they had a chef's tasting menu. The food was good, and I have experienced tasting menus before but I would say the portions on this were very small and would not fill up the typical man. Again, the food was good but the menu was $150 per person so was expecting to at least be satiated.

    Jeremy Ford and his team have earned their star and more. My husband and I enjoyed the Friday night tasting menu and we're blown away with more than one dish - lots of bright and bold flavors that were well balanced and well seasoned. Staff was great - always nice to dine amongst people who look like they genuinely enjoy their job and are knowledgeable in their craft. We will be back for next season's menu!

    Food and service were outstanding! Kudos to the chef, the pastry chef and all the kitchen staff. Our server was a very young guy (sorry I forgot his name) very knowledgeable, kind and helpful. By the other hand, music was way too loud and chairs are uncomfortable, but it won't stop me go back.

    Was so excited to eat at a Michelin Star restaurant and in Miami! The 8 course dinner was just enough and the foie gras and lamb was the best foie gras I've ever had. Every course was intricate and looked beautiful. So many textures and flavors together made the night a memorable experience. The cost was low to me, but it was so worthwhile. I am not a wine fan, so I had non alcoholic drinks and they were gorgeous and delicious. Don't miss this!

    Gentle service, some waiters need more training, but they try. Valet parlking is necessary and noise level a bit high. Food is the king here, and wine list is the queen. We loved it and we will be back.
