For once on South Beach the food and service was just as great as the scenery so I didn't mind paying South Beach's ridiculously prices. Food was great Service was great They even gave us 20% off of our check and a free round of shots! I would absolutely return

The breakfast was only okay...quite paltry. The Italian Breakfast choice was good though. The 2 hour happy hour in the afternoon/evening was nice.

Ate here after waling up and down Ocean Ave, we wanted a quick drink and appetizer. We ordered beers so I can not speak for the mixed drinks. As an appetizer we had ceviche and carpaccio, both were very good and fresh. Service was attentive too.

We had a very late (for us) dinner here, but 10:30 is early for South Beach. The food was good and service too. Good value for this area.

I had been pretty disappointed with Miami so far but stopped in here for a light luch and was so happy. Had great service and food. Staff were really accomodating without harassing you to come in as you walk down the street like some of the others on the strip.

Breakfast was included with our room, so we stuck with that menu. The eggs, bacon, omelettes, pancakes and eggs Benedict were all tastey. The expresso was also good.
