Good food, indeed, but not an amazing restaurant! Great service and an average environment. Still looking forward to having a great tiramisu for desert -- it was not this time.

The food is great, the service is outstanding, and the restaurant is right on the water. Go for the tuna tartar appetizer.

Place is hopping. Food was amazing as was the service. A bit on the expensive side. Look out for the dress code or they will not seat you.

The service was excellent and we were allowed to linger and enjoy our friends company without having to rush. The food was nicely prepared. I had the branzzino and it was done correctly.

Simply put, the best food, service, atmosphere. Not inexpensive but you get what you pay for. I found this restaurant on a trip to Miami in May and was back again in June. I will go back the next time i am in Miami

I have been here many times and it is always perfect. Plain and simple this is an elegant, trendy expensive restaurant and worth every penny! If you can, request to be seated outside for the spectacular view. I cannot imagine a finer restaurant!!!

For those of you complaining about how long it takes, do the rest of us a favor and call for take out...or possibly just go to the local drive thru. For everyone else, if you want to spend some time with friends, family or the one you love relaxing and eating great food, try this place. When you arrive, you... More
