We dined here for breakfast a year ago and it was fantastic. A lot has changed in a year. The service is slow and when faced with a complaint shrugged the shoulders. The food was cold, soggy, tasteless and very expensive. It is Ocean Drive....More

I have been to La Marea a few times, and appetizers were always quite good. This time I went with several people from work, and it took over an hour to even get the appetizers. Some of them were very good, some pretty bad (namely...More

Meaning ebb and flow of the tides in Italian and Spanish, La Marea is a refreshing addition to South Beach’s dining scene. One of distinguished interior designer Kelly Wearstler’s masterpieces, La Marea’s lushly landscaped entry terrace with intimate al-fresco lounging and dining spaces is the Ocean Drive hot spot to enjoy intuitive service and innovative culinary experiences. The diverse menu, conceived by Sous Chef Luis Moreno, celebrates the diversity in America with refreshingly eclectic dishes that also portray a global sensibility, prepared simply and elegantly. As a palate teaser, diners can opt for the Short Rib Empanadas, braised short rib salpicon, habanero chutney and red pepper remoulade sauce. Seafood lovers should not overlook the Pan Seared Tides Grouper with Spanish Rice, roasted plum tomato basil salsa with a Saffron beurre blanc sauce.
