The people are very nice but the meat does not meet one's expectancy considering the prices on the menu. If you still want to try be careful not to order too much as the portions are huge. You can sit outside.

This is a great spot. The meat they serve is top notch. The place is a bit small, and they don't take reservations. So I would suggest going off peak times. We went on a Wednesday evening and got a table right away. I've also gone on a Saturday and the wait was long so we opted to sit and... More

Waiter was very pushy with ordering more expensive, the resort charge,18%gratuity added in and of course the $1 charge for whatever. The only difference was I even spoke to the owner but only defended his employees. The waiter accused me that I didn't pay the full check and when I told home he was wrong he realized I was correct.... More

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
