We had breakfast there while we were staying in Downtown Miami and it was absolutely delicious. The waiter was very friendly and did give us some recommendations on the daily specials.

Went here for lunch with a couple of friends, the food and service was fine, but was nothing special, and neither was the prices. On the plus side it was open on Thanksgiving.

Price and quality ratio was definitely weird at daily specials. 36$ for a slice of sea bass was brutally overpriced. We really did not like the atmosphere... one of the... More

Recently in our trip to Miami we ate several times at this restaurant with an amazing cook, great service and atmosphere. We went for dinner and ate the Filet Mignon. The pommes frites were to die for. We decided to go back on Sunday and tried the brunch. The Benedictines and omelettes were delicious! Highly recommended! Enjoy it!

We came on Sunday and were lucky to get a table for our group. The food we ordered was huge, looked great and was tasty. The waitress made a mistake with my order, but brought me some complimentary mimosa, so I thought that was really nice of them. I'd definitely recommend this place!

Quite a large group of us went on a Sunday morning for brunch and we were very well accommodated, it's a great place for couples too for a beautiful breakfast. A large variety of eggs benedict, very well done and great coffee. Fantastic find, defiantly recommended you will not be disappointed.

Went her for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday. Loved the ambiance and the food was excellently prepared. Great coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. Live in West Palm but next time I'm in Miami I will definitely return.
