We were in Miami for a single night last week, because we were going on a Cruise leaving from there the following day. After searching through many restaurants on Trip Advisor, we decided to eat our one dinner in Miami here (at DBYCCML). The restaurant itself is quite trendy and pretty, for it truly represents the vibrant vibes of Miami.... More

Gotta love the name! We had dinner upstairs on the patio, which has both covered and uncovered options. This is the perfect spot for your first meal in Miami after arriving from the cold north. Beautiful patio! You can sample wines before buying and bottles were very reasonably priced. Meals included a free appetizer - eggplant mozzarella was almost a... More

We sat at the alfresco dining area upstairs at Dolores. What a special treat. In the middle of downtown Miami, we found this oasis at this restaurant. We sat on the open-air terrace with fans to provide welcomed ventilation. The service was great and the food was good enough. Very nice presentation of the dishes. The experience was seriously tarnished... More

Had a really good meal here the other night. The building is beautiful and has some historic significance in Miami. Staff were very good. I got baby back ribs which were beautiful and every one else got fish which they were really happy with. Would definitely come back and recommend it highly if your are in Miami.

Had a team dinner here with a set menu. Staff was very attentive and did a great job for a group of 30. Food was solid, desert was amazing. Would like to try with a smaller group to explore more of the menu.

My husband and I decided to take advantage of their happy hour, on Sundays it's from 4 to 10 PM. I noticed that they changed the green turf type rug to nice tiles which gave it a better look. We waited a few minutes before being greeted by our Server, Carmelita (or Carmel per the receipt). The drinks took a... More
