“Tried to rip us off! ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Said it was 20% off, It wasn't. They changed the bill when challenged. I get the feeling it's just what they do everyone in the hope they'll get a quick buck.

Service wasn't ok as they left us and others waiting for a long time.

I'm far from fussy but wouldn't go there.

Great location on south beach. Drinks where more than expected. Price caught us off guard but we had a great experience. We had a great spot right in the heart of south beach. We didn't eat but the food looked amazing.

I was there last week. I was walking by looking for a place to eat and the waitress stopped me and told me they were still serving breakfast. When I asked for the lunch menu she said that the White portion of the menu was 50% off. The service was horrible. Waitress took forever food was ok. When I got the bill there was no 50% off. When I complained I got a 20%. I specifically asked for a small bottle of water. She brought me a liter opened and Immediately served it. When I told her I didn't want that she poured the rest in a plastic container to go. Big time hustler. Never again. BEWARE

We were there for a dinner it was really expensive and not good at all! Very bad service a cocktail was 40$ ! Not good at all! I wouldn't recommend it! They won't show the prices and they will charge you a lot! And they don't care about you they are going to scam you!look only at the menu with the prices!!!! But very bad food so never go there!!!!!!!

Very expensive and not good food. Not original.
I hate it. Disappointed and waitress unbearable.
The only thing good is the building, which is superb.
You can find sooooo much better!
Try another in Ocean Drive!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in Feb2014. The apartment was clean and spacious and represented excellent value.
Located on Ocean Drive meant easy access to the beach/ central Miami Beach, but what really stood out for us was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff there.
Nothing was too much trouble for them, we were helped with car hire and local advice on many occasions. This helped make our stay in Miami really enjoyable.
