I visited this restaurant for the Breakfast Buffet on October 28th, 2016 as I was a guest at the Pullman Miami Airport Hotel where it's located. We pre-booked breakfast with our reservation online as it's much cheaper than paying the $23 USD per head once there. The buffet itself was very simple. Scrambled Eggs, Fingerling Potatoes, Pork Sausages, Bacon, Assorted... More

Breakfast consisted of a buffet which was in my regards highly overpriced. Nothing to write home about in my opinion!

You have to have the mahi mahi. It is out of this world. The service is excellent as is the presentation of the food and the food itself. However, be prepared to spend quite a bit for dinner ($100 + for two people), not quite as much for lunch.

While many of the menu items cost only marginally less than the buffet, I'm glad I chose the "healthy breakfast". Yogurt, fruit plate, smoothie, toast and an egg white omelet with spinach. The portions were perfect and everything tasted fresh. Yummy! My husband chose the buffet, and he enjoyed it as well. Lots of variety, from healthy, to carbs to... More

We ate here once for dinner and once for lunch. While the service was friendly, the prices were not in line with what you get. The meals are large, but paying $18 for a hamburger in a hotel restaurant is not my idea of a good deal. The hotel itself is great. Just find someplace else to eat if you... More

Took some relatives over for a lunch/dinner and we were amazingly surprised at the combination of flavors! I cannot say enough about all the service staff as to how friendly they are and the food was TO DIE FOR! I had never tried a Duck with Tequila Sauce (maybe once in The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Nigel, but this was one had... More

Not only was this food rather pricey which I would willingly pay if the food was good but the entrees were bad. I had the scallops which I typically really enjoy and I found myself hiding them in the potatoes (I always feel guilty when I don't enjoy a dish as I assume the chef did their best!). They were...

The place is empty on Saturday before Valentine's Day. Tell you something? Brie cheese app was a large chunk of French bread with 4 thin slices of Brie $13. Pork chop was overcooked and dry. This is a passable choice if you are stuck at the hotel. I would never travel to this restaurant.

Ate dinner there as there were no good choices in the area. The menu was very limited. We had to beg to get a "bar menu" just to have a sandwich. They have these weird curtains randomly in the space which encroached upon our table. Was this to give us privacy? It was just thin, old cloth. We knew there... More
