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

My husband and I have attended a few different functions at the Arsht Center recently. Our most recent visit was to watch "The Book of Mormon," which was so funny. We have also come to see the Miami Symphony Orchestra and Piano Slam, which is held annually. The parking situation is touch and go. If you get here early you... More

The facility is gorgeous but the parking and inside guest concessions are a fail. Valet parking is $25 with few options to do otherwise. The pick up is the absolute worst process that forces everyone to jam into the pick up location to hear their numbers called. Inside there were insufficient serving stations and really long lines were the norm.... More

Very nice facilities for a Broadway show. The staff was helpful & courteous. Drinks were a little pricey, but the new restaurant Brava was solid!

My girlfriend and I have attended two performances at the Arsht complex........the Cleveland Symphony and the musical "Book of Mormon". We absolutely enjoyed each performance and would highly recommend both performances to the appropriate audiences. However, it is the Arsht Center itself that has surprised me as a mediocre experience. First off, let me say that the interior event staff... More

Recently went to a Sunday afternoon matinee at the Ziff Ballet Opera House. We paid in advance for Valet parking, $25.00 to find out the lot across from the center is a dirt parking lot! This is important to know because after the performance, the valet attendants tear thru the parking lot kicking up the dust and the cloud of... More

Recently, I attended a Lyle Lovett at the Adrienne Arsht Center and in specific in the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall. This place is absolutely beautiful. The acoustics were very good from my seat. My few (minor) complaints: The doors were not open at the scheduled time and the lobby becomes very crowded especially around the bar... More

I came here for a show in August. I bought tickets off the Arscht center website, and then a week later those tickets were released on a discount website such as groupon, living social, etc for a cheaper price. When i called to discuss this matter since I paid TRIPLE for what other guests paid, no phone call was returned,... More

We were here for several shows, such as slava snow show and several of the free gospel series. Great view from any seat,great architecture in all the theaters.Most employees are courteous,professional and helpful while guiding you to your seat. We had a great time at this theater. The center offers valet parking and also self paking for a fee.
