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

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
