The food was ok, nothing extraordinary. Way to bathroom smelled disturbingly bad. Would not go again.

This was a really nice place that we decided to stop at and eat. The drinks were really good and the food was great. Couldn't really find anything negative to say. I would definitely go back since I had a great experience.

I did not eat here so I couldn't say anything about the food, but we had a great time listening to the live music upstairs and also had some pretty good drinks. Definitely more about listening to some music though. Nice, romantic ambience.

One of the few places in Miami where you can see live jazz. Very cozy atmosphere and reasonably priced. We saw Big Brookly Red, who put on a great show. We shared the hummus platter and the house rioja, which was excellent. Get there by 8:30 to get a table for the 9 pm show.

Food had funny taste. Waiter diseapered after giving the food. Wait time between first drink and food was 20min!!! Watch out paying with credit card, they add an extra tip on top of your tip, so expense on your card is incorrect!!!!!

Atmosphere ok, live music nice, we had a beer and were hungry: we thought we couldn't be mistaken with a cheeseburger. BIG MISTAKE! It was terrible, smelt horribly. Every ingredient was bad, but the meat and the cheese were terrible. PS: We didn't like the automatically added tip on the check, common to every restaurant in Miami Beach. ITALIANO: Non... More

This is a great place for cocktails, appetizers and people watching from the terrace which is shaded and attracts the breeze. Great sandwiches too, so also a good place for lunch. I especially liked their turkey wrap which was generous and not overpriced. Cool jazz in the evening makes this an excellent place to groove. Very enjoyable.

We had lunch here on a Sunday. Considering the place was heaving we were seated within 5 minutes. We had the mahi mahi burger and a turkey breast burger with sweet potato fries. Both were nice. Great place to sit & people watch. So much so we thought we'd stay for dessert & coffee. Unfortunately or fortunately, service was so... More

Total disappointment. Went on a Saturday night for dinner and it was very loud, had to literally scream to maintain a conversation and it was difficult to understand what the others were talking about (sat on the bottom floor). The server never brought water nor bread to us and we had to ask for it...The server disappeared after the food... More

Good food, loads to choose from on the menu. All really tasty. We sat outside, but did feel slightly forgotten by he waitrose as we were tucked away - had to wait about 20 minutes to get their attention. Would definitely recommend but would pick a different table next time!
