I used to like this restaurant until I found something unsanitary on my salad. This might be a transition phase in the kitchen where personnel might need better supervision. It's really a shame because I used to enjoy this restaurant. For now I am giving it a break...

First they changed the name to Ferris and introduced hookas, shawarma and othe stuff like that. Then they got closed suddenly, and I have had a reservation there.

The bacon wrapped dates are awesome, as was the lobster. The setting is relaxed -- dressy beachy -- and you can sit outside overlooking the ocean or inside with still great views. It is a restaurant you should consider even if you aren't staying at the hotel.

There's not too much to choose from if you don't like fish or other seafood. But all in all very good things to eat! You won't be disappointed.

We got engaged at the condo and went to Alba shortly after.We were there for dinner and breakfast. The entire staff treated us awesome, especially Javier Luis. He was kind, funny, and treat us right - being a newly engaged couple. Do yourself a favor and ask for him and go to this place; the food and service are fantastic.

We had three breakfasts here and each one was fantastic. We got over the price when we realized we were literally staring out floor to ceiling windows at the ocean. The staff is really nice and they are always keeping your drinks filled without being in the way. The rehearsal dinner for our family wedding was here and it was... More

I was looking for something special for our last night in Miami and decided on this restaurant. So pleased we did. Two of us had lamb cutlets with another having pasta and another chicken. All the dishes were cooked to perfection, and served very professionally by our waiter Andy. Four mains, three sides, drinks for us all and 2 desserts... More

The venue/location is perfect, not the hustle and bustle of SOBE, but the nice, quaint surrounds of Sunny Isles, which is even better, picturesque views to accompany an amazing meal accented by flavourful drinks. The attending staff is phenomenal...

I attended an event at Alba in March. While there, I enjoyed the view of the ocean with their floor to ceiling windows and outside terrace. The venue is intimate and modern with attentive, friendly staff. Our server was Tammy, who went above and beyond to make sure that everything was on time and took the time to engage with... More
