It was alright

The food was great but the service was slow and the restaurant wasn't full. Our waitress was too busy and was not very attentive. just go early and hurry up and wait.

There were quite a few tables needing to be cleared/cleaned on the porch upon our group of three arrival. We had a 10 wait for a table but noticed several 4-6 parties were still waiting 30 minutes with still empty/dirty tables. I didn't see a manager any where. The food was just so so.

food was edible, but the service was horrible, i don't think that the personnel has been trained at all on customer service, it give visitors a bad impression about Miami's.

It was empty at lunch time, maybe because it was black Friday. The food is not impressive, but not bad. Yo can compare it with Chillies

I hate to give this place only three stars, but I have to say something. I used to come to this place all the time and I loved it. The food was great, the service was spot on, everyone was happy. Recently though, it hasn't been this way. The food is NOT fresh. The freshest thing in that restaraunt is... More
