“Unreal Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This restaurant was so busy, you need to book a reservation well in advance.

We ate sushi at the bar, had mojitos that were the best I have ever had. We had Hamachi and jalapeno, tuna sashimi with truffle oil, kobe beef medium rare and black cod.

One of the best sushi meals I have ever had, anywhere in the world. Book early, it was packed and there was no room for walk ins. Great for people watching, full of beautiful people!!

“excellent food and pure glamour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

From entering to departing this venue, it takes your breath away set in stunning water front surroundings.
Interior beautiful.
Dress to impress full and I mean full of poseurs, outside had 5 Ferraris parked up.
The food was excellent.
The service was excellent.
Didn't pay but I am sure it was super expensive... A lot of truffles use.

“Pretentious”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Terrible valet service. Food not that special. Bad service. It took 20 min to hand the car to the valet. Wait at the door for a not so good food. 45 min wait to leave.

“Ultra Hip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Wonderful restaurant. Great cocktails at the bar. The $145 omakase menu was fabulous. No wonder it is one of the hardest places to get a table in Miami. I highly recommend.
