First time visiting this beautiful center for the performing arts and thought it was fantastic. My only disappointment was in the lack of places to eat on site, or near by for that matter. Arrived with ample time (2+ hours) and still was not able to eat at any of the restaurants in here. Play was wonderful and seating was... More

Went here today to see Wicked. We sat towards the back of the orchestra section and had aisle seats. However, they did not have a walkway on the other end so there was only the one way in to get to the seats so we had to get up a lot to let people in and out. A bottle of... More

Bought tickets for the show to go with our elderly parents. Although the show was amazing! The Knight Concert Hall was not nor were the ushers. I have attended numerous performances at the Knight Concert Hall and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. When we arrived we went to find our seats the usher directed us to a... More

We used to like this place. Now they are charging a 10% ticket fee. Outrageous. Even if you go to the box office instead of buying online. So if you buy a ticket for $150, you pay a $15 fee. Ridiculous. Why don't they eliminate the fee if you go to the box office like other places do? Why don't... More

We always take advantage of the free Family Fest events at the Arsht Center. Once a month in the winter and spring the center opens its doors to the community. On this special Saturday, you enjoy outdoor performances, arts and crafts, face painting, characters (of the theatre) and finally a performance inside the beautiful center. Families come from all over... More

The theater is amazingly built for attending dance performances and it's very easy to get tickets online. I managed to get a nice seat to be present at the very first presentation of Miami City Ballet of 2015 and I really got thrilled by the beauty and acustics of the place.

We attended a concert by this student group - the United States' only full-time orchestral academy preparing musicians for careers in symphony orchestras and ensembles. It was very professional and fun to hear the young artists. (Their school is in nearby South Beach.) We took the bus from the Clay Hotel where we were staying in South Beach and avoided... More

Far better than its predecessor for theatre ....try the RESTARAUNT inside, Brava. Good food, a little pricy but very convenient.

Positive: Great looking building and theater. looked like good sight lines from most seats. Good sound system. Rest rooms and bar on all floors. Several good restaurants nearby. Negative: prebooked parking at $15 or valet at $25 are a ripoff. Ditto on the prices at the bars! Hint to management, to fill more seats (many empty at the show we... More

The best of the best, every Season. This is one of Miami's jewels. From the valet to the end of every performance it's an experience of Beauty and Art combined. The structure alone is a work of Art when viewing the interior ceiling and lobby areas. The seats and boxes are comfortable, the staff are wonderful and accommodating. I am... More
