“Typical SoBe, elegant and expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We ate for the second time here in March 2013 and came away with the same impression. The decor looks like a classy version of Liberace's house (as I imagine it would look like), with a bunch of pretty South Beach people constantly flowing in and out, and with some very good food. My girlfriend said her grilled octopus appetizer was one of the best she ever had, while her entree, king salmon, and my meal of zucchini fritters and pomodoro pasta, were all also very good. Throw three glasses of wine and a tip on that and it came to a couple hundred dollars, so be prepared.

The reason for the missing star is that this clearly is an upscale place to eat with an expensive menu. Yet the table next to us had two children who were watching a movie quite loudly on a tablet. The parents didn't care that their children were disturbing other guests and neither did the staff.

Despite that, we'd probably go back again to hopefully enjoy the food and ambiance.

“Good food, great scene!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

It was a special occasion and the place met the need. Great ambiance, cool people, good music and the food was quite good as well. The only downside was that they sat us outside and it was a bit chilly, with the heat lamps not keeping up.

“Cool place in a cool Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This place saved my party of six searching for a place to eat on Valentine's Day. They had a last minute opening when we called and they were kind enough to fit us in on a rainy night when our trek to Ocean Drive got washed out. The decor is very south beach. They have some nice large round tables which can accommodate parties of 6-8 people....much better for conversation than long rectangular tables. Wines were reasonably priced. Food and service was excellent.

“Trendy and upscale”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Very dark. Even the hipsters had flashlights from the waiters food was good. Fileted fish was full of bones. Service was very good. Food good but no oohs and abs. Deserts were unimaginative. Nothing chocolate. It was an experience The bar scene was hopping. Would not go back. Too many other places to try for the food and not the scene.
