This place has more hype than reality! Food never stated to be spicy and we had to return the flatbread. The soups never arrived and at the end they brought them cold. The rest of the food decent. Service way Below average and dont go after 8 as they pick up tables, start mopping, waiter with their purses on hand....... More

After a crappy lunch at carpaccios we were very, extremely happy with the food in this fun restaurant. This isn't a quiet place...so romance is out, but the ambiance is super fun. Food is very tasty. The oyster selection are amazing. We had blue points and hove cove and they were super fresh. From appetizers to dessert...everything is awesome. If... More

Quite a bit of road construction but well worth navigating for some of the freshest fish in Miami I highly recommend the whole fried Yellowtail.

Great Oysters flown daily is the staple here ! Get them during happy hour at half price from 5 to 7 pm. The Oriental style whole fried fish is delicious. Many great affordable dishes as well. The tuna tartare was good, the bacon wrapped shrimp bbq are delicious as well. best clam's casino in town. The restaurant will relocate later... More

Good food? Great food! Good service? The bartender is amazing! Worth the price? Yes Will we go back? Yes! What can I say, we sat at the bar and ordered dinner and drinks, and the service was incredible. He was giving suggestions, and definitely steered us in the right direction, not just what was most expensive. Everything tasted wonderful and... More

Great place in downtown Miami. Tried several appetizers and few entrees and everything was perfect. If you sit in the bar ask for Sean, very friendly and professional. Please, check this place out.

Hard to go wrong with the prix fixe lunch menu (though two oysters seems a bit scant). I was surprised at the amount of spice... More
