“Incredible food and top notch service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

My husband mentioned to our server we were on the beginning of our honeymoon. He quickly came back over with champagne! Joshua was over the top excellent. He suggested choosing our menu and experience and we couldn't be more happy that he did. Being frequent diners in NYC we were in awe with this dining experience in Miami. Joshua was so passionate and helpful and we couldn't recommend it any more. A do not miss restaurant.

“One of the best dining experiences of my life.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant proves to me that the Miami food scene tops NYC food scene. The flavors, the food, the presentation. Amazing. Our server Joshua was incredible and so helpful selecting dishes. Definitely in the top 3 restaurants I've eaten at in my life. Can't recommend this restaurant enough. If you're a foodie, you must try this place. And request Joshua as your server

“Depends on what you want”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I was seriously thinking about not rating this restaurant. The place is well known, pushed by a lot of people and does provide joy to a lot of customers. It is certainly a money making venture and more people leave the place with smile on their faces then unhappy. Still if you are a serious and experienced foodie you might want to think it over again before you decide to go.
Every "normal" restaurant is entitled to an off day. Perhaps today was one of theirs. I believe that after all these years visiting restaurants all over the world I have a good idea of what is good and what is not.
The place could have potential as the recipes are innovative. There are many interesting combos of ingredients and flavors. Still I came away with the feeling that it is over done, unbalanced in some dishes or just are made sloppy a bit by the cooks. If you want a popular place and are not seeking an outstanding meal, this place is fine, although over priced a bit for what quality you get.
If the taste and quality is more important to you, and you are an experienced foodie, you might want to rethink it before you commit to to going.

“An Incredible Food Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

If you are going to The Bazaar, stop, pause and savor at as many food choices as you can. The food on the Ultimate Tasting Menu, sampling 20 plates of varied food choices - seafood, salads, appetizers, beef chicken and inventive dessert choices - was spectacular. Each plate had unique ingredients and tastes. The choices were creative. The presentation was beautiful. Hostess Jordan and waiter Joshua were friendly and helpful guiding us through offerings.

“The most unique and delicious experience we have had in five years of South Beach dining.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

We had the most unbelievable and unique dining experience in years tonight! Jose Andres is a genius , and our server, Jovany, was magnificent - We let him order for us since the menu was so imposing!
We highly recommend letting your server do the ordering - each course was better than the last, and so unusual!
My wife and I have eaten in the best restaurants in the world, and this ranks as one of our best experiences ever! Do not leave Miami beach without trying this place, preferably with a drink before in the impressive outside bar.
We will make this place a regular every year we are here!
This place should be ranked #1 by a mile,
