Made a reservation for new years in November, as I heard that this place fills up fast! We were contacted by the staff and had to fill out a form for the special new years event. There were two dining options, before or after 8pm - the latter being more expensive of the two, and there was an option to stay for the new years event as well. We decided to choose the later seating as well as stay for the new years event. We were staying at the hotel which was probably why we were even more excited to go to this restaurant. Arrived on time, had a picture taken of us but unfortunately we never received it or found out how to get hold of it. Our table wasn't ready when we got there, so we had to wait around 25 minutes to be seated. The staff made up for it though as our waiter Louis was very helpful and made the night extremely enjoyable and memorable. Service was excellent and the quality of food was top-notch. During our dessert, we were approached by one of the staff members and was asked if we could give up our table as they were waiting for us to finish to let another group sit. They offered us tickets to the new years event, but I informed them that we already paid for them when we made the reservation so there was a slight communication issue. Not to worry, as they offered to give us a ton of free drink tickets. We were almost finished anyway so I wasn't stressed and took up the offer. Overall, it was a great and memorable experience, our waiter made our night truly enjoyable! I would have given a service rating of Excellent, but due to the wait time and us having to be rushed a rating of "Very Good" will have to suffice. We will be coming back to Miami this December for new years, but we will probably try some place else for a new years event. We will definitely make a reservation for this restaurant on one of the nights we are here though!
