    The atmosphere and vibe was amazing! The views, food, and service were incredible. We went for sunset with friends and really enjoyed the experience. I had the fried Florida Yellowtail Snapper. It was delicious, one of the best snappers I've ever had. My friend had the Short Rib Pappardelle and my husband had the lamb chops. They were both delicious. I highly recommend The Deck.

    Great ambiance! If you want a place with a view and festive environment!! Not the place to be able to have conversations unless you sit far away from speakers which is what we did. It was a really nice place to hang out with friends I recommend!

    Good ambiance, amazing view of the Miami skyline, very good food, it is more a party place than a restaurant and the reservations are useless, we had to wait 45 minutes for our table to be ready even having a reservation.

    "Firstly, you guys need to train you waiters to service that tables better: (1) no table settings were there even after food was served. I finally asked after few minutes (2) ther server never once cane out to say how the food was (3) I guess this server noticed we were not buying as much alcohol (4) this is my 7th time here and 5 out 7 were terrible service. I finally decided to do a review."

    The food looked great but since we were sitting outside we were swarmed with flies touching our food constantly. The fans did not help and the staff told us there was nothing they could do. The view is great for photos but I would only grab drinks here and avoid food due to the fly issue everyone had.

    It was an amazing experience. From the ambience, the food, and the customer service. Definitely, be sure to sit under the cabana if possible! First time in Miami and this was the absolute perfect way to end our trip! Well worth the money spent. I’ll be back for sure!

    Was told at 9:05pm, in person, that there was a waiting list for tables that our party of three could not be added to, must stay at the bar. I checked opentable and there was availability from 9:30 onward in 15 minute increments. So I went to the host stand to inquire. They said it was a mistake and they were full, the manager standing there said, we’re going to put you in the wait list and I said that’s the opposite of what we’re being told, do I need to book on the app? He just walks away without answering. The host proceeds to ignore my question and starts helping the person behind me. So I book in the app, wait 20 mins, and then am able to be seated. Shifty service attitudes, per the Miami usual, but also stupid business decisions, as they had to pay opentable for that res when I was literally standing in front of them. Also the place smells like a fish market which usually means there is poor quality/rotting fish in the kitchen. Not appetizing to be around during prime time weekend dinner.

    Todo espectacular, pero la música un poco cansada, no tan bueno como otras ocasiones, el mismo estilo todo el tiempo, he ido en otras ocasiones y tienen un poco más de variedad. En fin todo muy bueno, pero al Dj le doy 3 estrellas. Además de que estaba pidiendo $100 para poner una canción y en caso de que a él le gustara

    I had a lovely time dining with some of my close friends at The Deck at Island Gardens. Our waiter, Trent, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and took very good care of us throughout our dining experience. The food and drinks exceeded expectations (palette wise) and the restaurant itself is decorated tastefully and located right on the water. 10/10 would recommend

    I was hoping for a great Mother’s Day but unfortunately it was hot, rainy and humid. The music was very loud, so loud I couldn’t have a conversation with my family and the buffet was ok, nothing special, not many choices. Do not think it was worthy of the $85pp. I would’ve preferred a la carte.

    researched this place, but didn't know how "lively" it was. Beautiful spot, views of the skyline over the bay and of the docks with multi-million $$ yachts. Killer food and excellent service. Not cheap, but heard pretty standard for MiJami!
