To step into Miami's HOUSE OF FOOD PORN is to step into a different world, far from the everyday! We were greeted by a vivacious host who disarmed our initial sense of dislocation with her ethereal charm. The setting is small and designed to encourage...interaction with your fellow diners - we instantly knew we would be on an adventure with a group of strangers who would become our friends for the evening. The food is ingeniously conceptualized and full of exotic flavors - best of all is that each course comes with a story. This is not just dinner; this is a voyage. Don't question the prices or the approach to booking, both of which are somewhat unconventional - you'll be thanking yourself that you stepped out of your comfort zone and tried something new and clever.More

An incredible, marvelous dinner experience. It almost makes me regret my previous five star ratings in Miami because this was head and shoulders above everything else. First, be clear this is "Shushi" not sushi. Everything was a cooked type of roll. No raw fish. Yet,...the cuisine is a delicious fusion of cooked dishes, with a heavy Cuban influence, served in quasi-sushi type rolls. Ranging from lobster, shrimp, and langoustine to spicy smoked ahi, to a Wagyu beef finale, each was delicious. The atmosphere was worthy of the stellar food. It was like a few people sitting around a family table served by a master chef. The hostess, Nikki, was warm and fun and friendly. She kept the champagne and wine glasses full and kept everyone in conversation while the chef, Frank, was at work. Frank let everyone take a bite of each dish and offer guesses about what was in it before giving a full description. I and other guests managed to get a lot of ingredients correctly, but many were surprises. The total experience made this the best meal I have had in Miami. Every Yelp review is five stars for a good reason. I most highly recommend House of Food Porn. If you have to choose only one fine dining experience in Miami, this is it!More

This was my first visit, and despite having read previous reviews HOFP nonetheless exceeded expectations. The evening began with a warm welcome by Nicky, the hostess. Her charisma carried the evening, ensuring every guest felt welcome and excited for the night’s specials. Be advised- the...website does not lie about the wine and you should certainly Uber to and from. The courses themselves cannot be described. Suffice to say that dining at HOFP is more akin to an experiential art exhibit, with food as Chef Franco’s medium of choice. In fact, I’m grateful that there is not a menu, because I could never have chosen such a creative variety of flavors as that served by the Chef. Between each course, Nicky subtly guides the guests to make connections and ensures the evening feels more like an intimate gathering among friends as opposed to strangers dining together. Chef Franco himself is warm and genuine, and his love of his craft is demonstrated through both his manner and his food. We found ourselves dreading the final course simply because it would mean an end to the wonders of the evening. Go to House of Food Porn. Embrace the unique experience it provides. Having originally set out to book a good restaurant to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday, I left having experienced an incredible culinary adventure that she expressed was hands down the best birthday dinner she had ever experienced.More

From the minute you walk in to the minute you walk out Nicky makes you feel like family. No detail is spared in giving you the best dining experience anywhere. House of Food Porn is absolutely a five star experience. Chef Franco’s spin on sushi...is unmatched. The food is amazing and you won’t find it anywhere else. The intimate setting just adds to the event. By the end of the evening you will be friends with all those dining with you. We eat at nice restaurants frequently but this is completely different…one of a kind! Great for couples or a group. You will absolutely agree with me. Put this at the top of your South Florida dining experiences. You will talk about it for months!!More

This was the 3rd time my husband and I have gone to dinner at House of Food porn. The first 2 times were amazing and the 3rd time was just as spectacular. The food and service were amazing. Every time we’ve gone, we’ve met amazing...people also enjoying the unique experience and this time was the same. I’ve never experienced a restaurant where you walk in and sit with strangers and leave with new friends. The House of Food Porn truly is a “house” and not a restaurant. Expect amazing people, expect amazing service and expect amazing food! It will meet all of your expectations and then some.More

This is the third time I get to experience House of Food Porn and every time it keeps getting better and better! This place is definitely one of a kind! Do not be detoured by the outside - it's worth it once you get inside....The service is exceptional and the food was delicious. The bottomless wine is a huge plus! The restaurant only sits around 12 people so it's very intimate and personalized. We did the 5 course tasting menu. Everything served is basically bite sized concoctions of food meant to resemble a sushi roll but without the raw fish component. Very unique experience definitely worth checking it out!!! If you have to choose only one fine dining experience in Miami, this is it!More

My husband and I visited House of Food Porn in April while we were in Miami for our 'babymoon' and anniversary. We chose the 8-course meal and had an amazing experience that we still talk about! We HIGHLY recommend HOFP to anyone looking for a...fun, unique tasting experience. I am a vegetarian (but my husband is not), and was pregnant during our trip, but Frank and Nikki were wonderful in accommodating my dietary restrictions. Some of our dishes were the same, and some were different from each other with one vegetarian version and one with meat. They also made virgin cocktails for me. Yes, the meal is very expensive, but Frank and Nikki offer a fun experience that is truly unlike any other restaurant. His food and story are very unique, and Nikki is a fantastic hostess who thought of lots of fun details to make sure we had a great time. We highly recommend a visit if you're able to make the splurge!More

Do not judge the outside, inside you will find a hidden gem for a food experience out of this world!!! Run by a creative couple, who make you feel home from the moment you step through the door. Chef Franco’s creations are incredible and we...only want Shushi from now on. Do not drive, their delicious red house wine is flowing freely and we had surprise cocktails which were great. We will be back soon, thank you Chef and Nicky, we had a blast!!!More
