Went here with a friend after seeing this place on a list for hottest new restaurants in Miami for October. I was extremely impressed. Yes, the portion sizes were on the small side but they more than made up for that with quality. Everything we...More

This restaurant smells horrible !!! Their view is nice!! But the food and service sucks !! Only thing I enjoyed was their miso soup. Disliked the monitors! There's like 15 employees and 10 are chatting while 5 work!! Definitely do not recommend !!

Disappointing. Rolls were tiny only five pieces each. Menu pretty uncreative. Martinis served in tiny glass. Poor value. Monkitail at diplomat hotel is much better.
