We went to icebox to have dinner on Friday with friends I ordered the curry chicken and it tasted awesome! As dessert we ordered a chocolate cake with cream...really good 😊. The staff was super friendly and the waitress too. Will go back for sure

Smart place, great food and coffee and friendly staff. Highly recommend. Much better value than most of the crappy food places on Miami Beach.

Was recommended the icebox for being a little different from other cafes in the area. At first liked the setup and the waiting service was good. But unfortunately it was downhill from there. They managed to get my order wrong and also over cook my wife's food. They were pretty quick at turning it around but didn't show much willing... More

Had a lunch at Icebox - understaffed - but out waiter was quite efficient. The food tasty and nice presented. But let's say average. We had salmon and a quinoa salad- and for dessert the lime pie which was a disappointment. The venue is nicely down casual. Prices were expensive for the food.

We were surprised by the exotic combination of tastes in most of the dishes. Guacamole with curry and chamosa was one of our favorites. I asked for a ceviche with "fish of the day" (unfortunately it was salmon) and it was quite poor in comparison with the other things we ate

I like the decor, I was there before lunch so maybe it was brunch, and got the fall menu. The staff was very helpful, they were very busy, lots of pancakes, pies and coffee. You would think Oprah had recommended the place. Since I had the menu I went Middle Eastern, ice tea, shrimp with chermoula, peppers and Indian dahi.

Ice Box is famous because its pies and cakes were recommended by Oprah, but their brunches are also quite good. Today I had the delicious lemon ricotta pancake. The bacon was burnt, but when I showed it to the very nice waiter, he inmediatly replaced it. The portions are quite big. If you are hungry enough to have dessert, order... More

My husband and I went to icebox for dessert last night and it was wonderful! Very romantic atmosphere with sheer curtains, candles, and a huge couch! It is so smart of them to offer a "sampler" with 3 half portions of cakes because we couldn't decide on just one. Our server was very friendly and accommodating! We loved icebox and... More
