Neighborhood atmosphere. The people that serve are involved, they love the food, they advice you well. They are well engrained as a team should be. We were 2 friends, we took advantage of the Happy hour with our amazing cocktails and the to die ceviche...with the toasted corn. But then, the food.... my pasta was the special of the day, I'm already thinking to go back to have it again. My friend had the lamp with a tzatziki sauce cook to perfection. Congrats to the chef, places like this should be consider for a Michelin Star!More

Made reservation for brunch today, PINCH KITCHEN, Miami Shores. Father’s Day. A manager promised us indoors—got there with a table set outdoors, about 95 degrees. It’s Miami! When they wouldn’t honor the indoor reservation, we left. NEVER TO RETURN AGAIN. Crappy business. 🤮

I have been eating at Pinch since 2016 and am happy to say it is still as excellent as ever. Although hard to believe, every item on the menu is special . The daily soup is homemade and delicious, the strip steak is flavorful, but...best of all ....their hamburger has to be one of the best in Miami. If in the N.E.Miami area, located on 86th Street and Biscayne Boulevard, do not miss. An outstanding local cafe atmosphere, with food of a 5 star restaurrant.More

Not impressed. We heard this place was the go to brunch spot. Our food took forever and everyone got there food at different times. The waitress seemed lost and I don't think it's cool to smoke your vape pen where your table can see you....We never got the croquettes or brussel sprouts but we just paid and left. This is our second time here and the best thing was the ceviche and the burger ( 20 bucks btw and my bf had to eat alone bc the rest of our food was taking too long and he didn't want cold food). The ambience outside is pretty and the bathrooms are clean. Just order to go.More

Visited Pinch restaurant several times during our 2 weeks in Miami. Every time we visited we were warmly welcomed, provided with genuine and sincere customer service of a high quality and were well looked after. The menu is interesting, varied and very appealing. We tried...a number of appetisers and main plates/entrée’s and everything was well presented, great taste and portion sizes very good. Food represented good value for money and there happy hour between 4pm - 7pm Tuesday to Friday made some of the dishes excellent value. The burgers are in particular delicious as also very nice is the Pork Belly, Croquettes and the Octopus is amazing. Located on Biscayne Boulevard it is easily accessible from North and South Beach, Downtown Miami, Midtown, Little Havana, Wynwood, Little Haiti and Miami Gardens with plenty of free parking. If visiting Miami, make sure you make a visit to this delightful restaurant. You will be pleased you did and fully deserves its very high ranking on Trip Advisor.More

Got here after a long flight from England and a drive from the airport. The staff were lovely, really happy and laid back. Great offers on the menu, had two great mojitos during happy hour which really hit the spot. Nicely made. We had burgers,...because you just do when you first come to the US and they were really well made and presented. Unpretentious, good food and a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.More

Visited Pinch recently and was quite pleased. The staff was extremely personable and professional. The locally sourced cuisine was delish. For starters we had: the Seasonal Soup - Focaccia - Pork Bellies...each well prepared. For Mains we had: Orecchiette al la Bolognese - Pinch Burger...- Chicken & Waffle and Eggs Benedict. Each main was prepared very well with the exception of the eggs benedict which not only lacked presentation but preparation as well...dish was thrown all together on an over-crowded plate with a Very dry, over seasoned (possibly tumeric?) biscuit and potatoes. For desert we d the yummy chocolate chip cookie and cheesecake. Over-all, this is a wonderful local gem and worth checking out - your taste buds will thank you. P.S. the small space can get a bit noisy - but they do offer outside patio dining. P.P.S. Still trying to figure out the difference from their Lunch, Brunch and Dinner menus as all seemed similar to me...?More

I have been trying o get to pinch kitchen for years and finally I am so happy I did. The staff are kind and friendly, very nice relaxing environment and great food. I had the burger and fries and my wife had the pork sandwich....The burger was quality on a fantastic bun oozing with flavors too. My wife really liked her sandwich even though it was too spicy for me. Overall a great experience and we will definitely be back.More

Our family of 6 was venturing south down I-95 for a show at the Arsht Center. By luck, we found this wonderful gem of a restaurant on TripAdvisor. From the moment I first called to make a reservation, the service was beyond compare, especially for...South FL. EVERYONE in this restaurant makes you feel like a welcome, valued guest. When our show finished earlier than anticipated, they accommodated our party & sat us straight away. All our servers were incredibly friendly & genuinely seemed excited to have you taste what they had to offer! And that's when the culinary delight began! Pinch's menu is equally familiar yet interesting. There is something for everyone. We tried a variety of dishes including the guac w/kimchi, croquetas, ceviche, pork sandwich, brunch burger w/a fried egg, etc. etc. Everything was met with happy exclamations of "Yum!" or "Delicious!" or "This is soooo good!" from my 82-yr-old mom to my 17-yr-old teen. Needless to say, we look forward to making the trek down south again soon!More

Pinch Kitchen has a superb chef and whoever is at the stove is doing things right, not to mention the most welcoming staff team. We loved everything we ordered — the gambas, croquetas and brussel sprouts are delicious and definitely save room for their desserts-of-the-day...— especially if they have creme brûlée, flan and chocolate chip cookies. We will definitely go back soon.More

I was a bit concerned about going because of the exterior and entry door... I prefer modern, open-glass, light and bright restaurants (just a personal choice) and Pinch is in what appears to be an older, smallish house converted to a restaurant with an exterior...add-on in the back. But once I entered - it was fine.. "comfy", clean and sort of art-decoish (a little) homey. However, the amazingly bright stars of Pinch are a) the interesting menu, b) the tastiness of the food - simply terrific flavors and c) the authentic, prompt and professional service. I'm a huge fan and look forward to MANY visits to eat my way through the menu.More

My husband and I found this restaurant on Open Table and went on the strength of reviews. The place is small but the food was very good! My husband had the octopus and the shrimp and was very happy with both. I had the burger...based on reviews and it was quite good also. And the focaccia was excellent! We both had the Lemonade cocktail - can't remember if that was the actual name - but it was also very good as was one of the house red wines that my husband went with for his entrée drink. The service got a little slow toward the end of the meal as they got busier but there was no rush to push us out quickly so we were happy to enjoy the evening and people watch while we waited for the bill.More

The menu is American but with a unique spin introducing different flavors that are not so common. I went with family and felt good the place is old school antique mix & match furniture. We had brunch, the food was very tasty.I did find it...to be a bit pricey however, I loved the soup of the day, butternut squash, creamy and savory. Service was good, the place doesn't look like much but its worth a try.More

We stop at Pinch with my son and his family and always have a great meal. they go more often too, and that reinforces our comments.
