We enjoyed an excellent dinner here. The staff were simply a pleasure to deal with, from hostess, to waiter, to support staff. Everyone was polite and friendly. Steps away from some of the glitzier places in SoBe, but without attitude. The food was great - unique preparations, very tasty and with a bit of kick. Very nicely presented. We ate... More

We hold twice a year meetings for our entire staff at different locations around the country. We had our most recent meeting with South Beach and had one of the best meals any of us has ever had at Ole. The service was out of this world. We had the chef select the appetizers. OMG, not a bad one in... More

Intimate restaurant inside the Sanctuary Hotel. Service was great and the food and drink, even better! Watermelon mojitos are the best I've ever had. The Filet Mignon was cooked to perfection and the duck was a delight! Gluten-free mini cheese rolls that were served complimentary with dinner were to-die-for. One word -- GO!

Can definitely recommend this place. Started off with beautiful sweet bread rolls - really scrumptious. I ate the fish of the day which was served with clams, mussels and squid - perfectly cooked. All in all everything was first-rate.

Corn empanadas were great as a starter. The filet mignon and lamb were excellent ....best mojitos! Pricy but well worth it.

So, I was trying to figure out where to kill an hour and get some food to drop in before the Absolute Party began at Editions Hotel... Amazing friendly bar ... Order from the " Starters" and "sushi" menus and you'll be snacked up and ready to roar through a night on the Miami Club/ Party scene

This place is special. I celebrated my birthday here and everything was fantastic - the food, menu, service and ambiance. The ceviche is small but awesome. I had the lamb which was the best I've ever had anywhere. It came with a side of potatoes that blew me away. Crazy chocolate goodness for desert. The sommelier was excellent as well.... More
