We love the new digs on sunset harbor. We had good service. My only complaint was that the ribs were either old or way over cooked as they were like eating shreds of cardboard. To bad as everyone else's dinner was great. The salmon with wasabi crust was good I think a little over done too. I will def go... More

Had dinner here the other night. Friends had recommended this neighborhood restaurant. First the décor is very cool and inviting. Everyone from the hostess to the servers and busboys could not have been nicer and more attentive. The restaurant is well known for its desserts but the food is pretty amazing as well. We started with a few signature cocktails... More

This review is for the Purdy Ave. location. We were staying at The Standard hotel right across on Belle Island and walked here daily for lunch. Great salads and sandwiches. I enjoyed the pulled chicken and there was a great turkey club sandwich which was original and very good. Some good desserts, too. Reviews seem mixed on dinner but I... More

Linguine with seafood was good. Wine by the glass (Montepulciano) was excellent, not too expensive. I'd go back to try more entrees.

I was in Miami for 5 days and had breakfast/brunch here 3 times. With all the choices, I think that says something. Great omelets, poached eggs, steel-cut oatmeal, fresh vegetable juices were all top notch. The clientele is a mix of twenty something brunchers and family gatherings. The service is snappy without hurrying you out and the decor is relaxing.... More

You have to want to go here as it is off the beaten path a bit, but still only about 5 blocks from Lincoln Road. We visited the old store next to Lincoln Road, but the new restaurant is much larger and nicer. Still the food is great and as good as anything else in the area. We both had... More

Rather disappointed, its more café casual than sobe glam , I was over dressed and although we enjoyed watching the locals the food was nothing exciting . Waitress pleasant but service far... More

Good vibe in this nicely styled cakebar. We came here for a 'top-up' after a highly disappointing desert at nextdoor 'Sardinia'. Two great cakes; strawberry shortcake and strawberry caramel, the first a bit lighter tasting. Good service from chilled, happy staff.

We stopped by around 4:45pm and the restaurant was in between shifts dinner was starting at 5pm. We came back around 7pm and the place was more crowded and we decided to have dessert! We tried three desserts: German Chocolate cake, the rasberry lemon cake and dulce de leche . ALL were very fresh and moist. And the german choc... More
