We are season ticket holders for the ballet. This is a great venue for ballet and all performing arts. The center is easy to get to with ample parking. Seating in the auditorium is well designed and the acoustics are wonderful.

Support the arts and enjoy the afternoon or evening out. The Arsht provides top notch entertainment in an artistically designed performing arts center. We've enjoyed the Florida Grand Opera performances over the last few years. Good seats can be bought at fair prices. Excellent acoustics!

The acoustic are excellent and we enjoyed the performance. Unfortunately we used valet parking and retrieving the car after the performance was a nightmare. . If at all possible they should develop a better system. Cars are delivered and the check number called. If no one drives it off the two lane driveway, it remains to block other cars from... More

Downtown Miami, if you mean Flagler Street is still an embarrassment. Old stores and shops selling import/export customers electronics, tee shirts, etc. But just a hop skip and a jump to the north a resurrection unlike any imagined has put the tropical resort city into the big leagues of art and entertainment. The new Perez Art Museum, the almost finished... More

Took our granddaughter to see Elf. Food concessions were awful. Big candy bar for kids was ok but food choices were worst we'd ever seen at a performing venue. It looks like the food police had taken over and decided to cram expensive somewhat healthy food down your throat. And with no other food around and with not being able... More

A wonderful evening! Miami City ballet is truly striving to improve and to make its mark. The choreography was excellent, "new and improved" as they say!

Guest services is beyond accommodating and the Adrienne Arsht Center is magnificently clean, has excellent customer service and a beautiful place to enjoy the best shows and events in the Miami Area. Pre-show has wonderful dining upstairs in 'Prelude'.
