Amazing... The Best

Worth every cent and the trip out of South Beach. Hands down a Miami staple. You MUST go. Very rare that a restaurant plans absolutely every aspect of your meal and delivers on even the smallest detail. Perfection...

Chef Kevin Cory floats quietly through the kitchen and delivers one of the best experiences you can have in a Japanese restaurant. The bento box served at the beginning was a combination of incredible and exotic flavors. The sushis that followed were simply perfect, balancing rice, shoyu, wasabi and fish in a way you can find in very few restaurants,... More

One of the weird things that I do - that I truly hope I'm not alone in doing - is imagine what my last meal on earth would be if I had that choice. For most of my life, my default answer usually was some variation of whatever I'd be in the mood for before my impending death. After experiencing... More

This is such a fun place, between the superb staff led by Wendy (who is amazing) and the traditional japanese techniques. I love the excitement of modernist cooking, but the chef conveyed that same excitement with traditional approaches. And it turns out it was exciting. This is about subtlety, and an invitation into different flavors (for those of us not... More

NAOE is easily the most incredible dining experience in Miami, and I consider it one of the best Japanese restaurants I've visited anywhere. Chef Kevin Corey pays such devout attention to his craft, and it shows in every intricate detail. He blends locally-sourced ingredients with far-flung imports, and shows an eye both for traditional fare and less common items. It... More

So - the good parts - many many courses that are often very interesting, often very delicious as others note. But I've a few concerns to share. First - this was a massive meal - many small courses - but so many - some reasonably generous - that about 2/3 of the way thru I was more than full and... More

Had back to back birthday dinners here. Yes it is pricey but damn is it well worth it. This year was different from last year. you get the usual bento box and soup, but now you get more sushi servings and three stages of dessert. The service is perfection! The only place where I will eat uni. Other than Naoe... More

As an expert in Japanese cuisine, I can firmly say that the quality of the sushi and food served is excellent, it is very close to the level of the top sushi restaurants in Tokyo and Kyoto. However, I must admit that a bill of $1,350 for 4 people is way too high when compared to the offering you get... More

I don't believe all the comments about this place being overrated and overpriced. The quality of the sushi is fantastic, and the price will reflect it as such. Not only is the quality superb, but the service is phenomenal, and the passion Chef has for this place cannot be mistaken nor replaced. My husband and I spent a week in... More
