“Very good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Beautiful restaurant with great views I ate lunch there three days in a row. Each time the restaurant was relatively empty nevertheless the service was excellent as was the food. I had the tuna burger one day and the guacamole another and a hamburger the third time. All were delicious

ceviche, sushi, mojitos and caparinhas were what we had and it was excellent. The ceveches were so good that even after I got back every time I smell lime it reminds me of the ceviches I had at the this place.

“Could Be Better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is our second time at Mister Collins. Happy Hour previously, which was nice. This last visit, we had Brunch and service was slow (we were with a friend we hadn't seen in a while, so we took advantage of the time to get caught up). Our waiter was attentive and apologetic explaining the kitchen had been slammed with orders through due to more guests than expected. OK, it is the off season for Florida, but locals still come out to eat, even if tourist numbers decrease.

The food was OK, actually a couple of the dishes were excellent, but considering the menu prices, everything should have been excellent..

We'll go back again and give the place another try. The views of Haulover Cut, the boat traffic and the beach in the distance make for a pleasant environment.

“Great food, service and ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We enjoyed dinner at Mister Collins the first night we arrived in Bal Harbour. We weren't expecting much for a hotel restaurant but were pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the Miami Spice tasting menu and enjoyed the salmon as my main course. My husband had the beef short rib and enjoyed his entree also. The service and food were both great.

“Okay...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The food here was decent for a hotel restaurant but it is so expensive that I would not have eaten here if I wasn't staying at ONE Bal Harbor hotel. Also one of the female servers was really rude at breakfast.
