Service, service, service!

Awesome food, amazing views of the water, but the service is by far one of the best in Miami. The chef accommodated us, and the waiter answered and served us very throughly! If you want to impress this is the place.

Ordered Branzini and was shocked when $85.00 was charged without the waiter telling the price. When I questioned him he said "that's the price" We have been here many times and know the prices are high but this was outrageous . Will not return.

Food and service was amazing. Most of us had pasta. The Colorado rack of lamb was $75 for 1 portion! Ouch!! Had caeser salad (awesome), pasta dishes, octopus. Drinks were delicious and fast service. Place is noisy and pricey so be ready!!

Excellent food and a gorgeous view of the bay. Is a favorite in Miami, along with Zuma just down the street.

When bringing food, bar tender proceeded to knock over my wine glass, which broke on the counter spilling my entire glass of wine on my clothes... More

Our favorite holiday place. Great food. Great ambiance. Great Service. Enjoy eating outside or inside. The burrata is one of my favorites. Fresh fish and pasta.
