This restaurant is located smack dab in the middle of south beach, if it lacked atmosphere I wouldn't have noticed, we were 7 people for dinner, chose to eat inside and for a great corner round table overlooking ocean drive and 7th. Our server was great, the food was mediocre but nothing I would not expect being in such a... More

Found this amongst the madness of Ocean Drive. Supposed to have made a reservation but they found us a table slightly around the corner which actually kept us out of the wind and was a bit quieter. We shared a few appetizers rather than have entrees, they were all seafood and the flavours were superb. Service was quick and attentive.

We wanted to each fresh seafood somewhere along south beach and the Kimpton's hotel recommended this place. It was a great location right where the action is. Service was very good. Now for the not so good. For $250 for four people I am expecting some excellent seafood. One meal was the paella for two which was very average. Just... More

We went for dinner with a reservation but still need to wait for another 30 minutes for the table at the bar. We were then given a table next to the main entrance (almost like a corridor). I think they only put those table there when it's busy. The service is good and food decent but on the expensive side.... More

From start to finish everything we had here was excellent. The service, cocktails, entrees!! They have a quiet front porch to dine on with live music, enough away from all the noise but still good if you want to do some people watching.

Overall a positive experience. The food was good and presented well. The only downside is that it is very loud in the inside portion. The outside seating seems nicer from an atmosphere perspective and you get to watch the lovely Miami nightlife.

Dear keepchasingwindmills, Many thanks for taking a moment to write, and for mentioning the trade-offs of dining indoors versus on the terrace. True, the sound can be very lively indoors, and the comfortable March weather made the terrace very appealing when you visited. In the tropical summertime, our air-conditioned dining room is a cool oasis, so we are glad to... More

A fantastic restaurant that thoroughly deserves the great write ups. Service very friendly and meal was absolutely delicious. Spring break was in full flow so plenty of cabaret walking by (and by and by) which made the evening even better!

What an amazing dinner we had! Had dinner with co-workers. We had a few drinks at the bar inside where we met a great bartender (feb 26th). We ate outside. Seafood was mostly what everyone got, and it was delicious. Sitting outside was comfortable temperature-wise. It was right on the sidewalk so you need to be comfortable with people walking... More

Many restaurants on Ocean Blvd have repeat menus and try to entice you to come into their establishments with discounts on food and beverages..I was sucked in on a few the first couple nights we were staying! In time you will figure it out too..I think they are all owned by the same principal. . Stop the madness if you... More
