Picked this place because of the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor. We were looking forward to a fabulous meal but unfortunately was very disappointed.
Despite this restaurants small size, it was very loud and not ideal.
They have a nice wine menu with some reasonable values. Bravo on this.
Service was pitiful. Waiter was never around. After having our food delivered, there was no follow-up to see if the dishes were ok. Unacceptable.
For the appetizer we shared a crab cake - outside texture was soggy, as though it was previously fried and now reheated. Flavour was fairly bland - mediocre at best.
Wife had a seafood pasta - little seafood with much spaghetti tossed in a basic olive oil dressing.
My salmon was the driest and most tasteless I have ever had. Would have sent it back however the waiter was nowhere to be seen. I actually added olive oil and balsamic to it in order to give some moisture and flavour.
Had the Tiramisu for dessert which was good.
Bill had a 10% discount but included 18% gratuity (an automatic 18% seems pretty standard in South Beach).
Overall - not good. Definitely will not return.
