Excellent Happy Hour

I have just moved to the area from the Northeast where happy hours don't exist. I had a few glasses of wine, the tuna tataki, and a wonderful caprese salad. The portions ample to be dinner for me and all at a price I would have 2 glasses of wine for in an average bar in NYC!!!!

Love Michelle Bernstein and have followed her for years. Went to her restaurant in the flat iron area and had a delicious meal however we were wondering why at 1 o'clock there was hardly anyone there. Enjoyed a delicious chicken soup and my husband had the tuna tacos which were excellent. Hope to go back for dinner as we went... More

Fell upon Dolores while trying to find a restaurant in the Bickell area on a Tuesday night. There is a lot of choice in this area and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant has a house/homely appeal when you walk in - even though there is a terrace/patio that you walk through. Rooms to the side and a stairwell leading up... More

Recently stopped in while spending a night in Miami. The place is very attractive inside, modern, and very pleasing. Lots of people, well dressed, etc - seems to be a popular night spot among the locals in Miami. The problem was the food - average at best, and very overpriced from a value aspect. It was all well presented, but... More

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.
