We were pointers at piece of meat at $32.99 at later were charged $69.99 . Waiter and manager stated they gave us wrong item, but since we ate it, we have to pay $69.99. What a way to do business! What a way to cheat your customers! And how about charge for splitting your steak. Not everyone can eat 1.5... More

A restaurant with different opinions among the public. We order as appetizers: Provoleta good portion and taste Chorizo also very good and well done. The bread was excellent Morcilla dos not pass among any of us. Nothing special. Vegetable salad was a large portion but did not convince mostly due to the quality and dressing. Steaks: Filet mignon was tender... More

The food was good. That was all. We came in and the restaurant was empty, they got filled with large parties and I understand they were busy, but I felt almost unwanted. My server never once cheeked on us. We asked our servers assistant for the check and she said she would tell our server. I'm not sure if she... More

Everyone is entitled to an opinion,but I was sad to read a few negative tones which I do not think were deserved.I have been eating here for almost twenty years when it was the original tiny restaurant to their updated and lavish restaurant now.In all those years the owners have maintained a consistent menu with their wonderful steaks and the...

It was extremely cold. My wife was given a blanket. It was overpriced and slow service. There is also the 18% gratuity, the $1 donation to Mount Sinai Hosital marked as "MSMC", the sales tax and the 2% Miami Beach Resort Fee. The food is very good just get rid of the owner and the staff. They are probably still... More

We were told they would charge us $32 for us to open and drink his bottle then they came back and said it would be... More

When bill came, that charged us $69.99 vs 32.99 menu price explaining this was special steak, not on menu. After complain, owner came , but refused to adjust price( just took service charge)...

If you love steak this is a must. A bit off the main strip on the beach but well worth the drive. The service is great and the meat was excellent. Also try the garlic fries

Set your expectations straight: this is a local ethnic steakhouse with a pretense to be more upscale. Don't be fooled by the sexy interior design and upscale looking cellar. This is a local ethnic steakhouse. Here is what your recipe for great steak dinner: order immediately as you sit down, my suggestion would be an Enrollada (share it even if... More
