Have you ever had red wine brought to a table so cold there was condensation on the bottle? We had ordered two bottles and they were both COLD right from a refrigerator. That was definitely a first for me, and our waiter seemed confused that we'd want to drink red wine at the appropriate temperature. We had dinner here with... More

Third time here. It's a haven of quiet (well, mostly) in the pandemonium that is Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. The food is good - fish, seafood, and meat dishes, with good vegetables and salads. The wine list is decent and not too outrageously priced. But the real pleasure is the ambience - you sit in a tasteful Art Deco hotel... More

Interior of restaurant is a great respite from the frenetic activity on the street. Service excellent. Hummus served with pre-meal bread was delicious! I had the macadamia crusted snapper which was so good - cooked perfectly and the risotto that comes with it was delicious. My business associate had the special which was medallions of seared ahi - not too... More

Since we stayed at the hotel, my husband and I decided to have dinner at the restaurant there. He had a fish dinner that he said was excellent. I'm a vegetarian so I had the vegetable plate which was good. I did mention to the manager who went around checking on everyone, that it would have been nice to have... More

We had an excellent meal on the porch with what I call entertainment included. There was a latin jazz band performing on the porch while we dined and we watched the madness of Ocean Drive far enough away from the hustle and bustle but yet close enough to feel the energy.. The food is delicious. The homemade humus served with... More

...so you can't do anything wrong when going here. If you favour a good Surf & Turf - take your friends when in SoBe!

We wanted to eat closer to the action and decided on this place after reading the reviews. Great location (just before all the annoying solicitors trying to get you in their place) service and food. The sangria was probably the best I've had. Seafood was fresh and tasty! Definitely add it to your list of places to go.

This spot is great for ever occasion. The atmosphere was great, nice background music. I happened to arrive late and the place was nearly empty since it was a rainy night. The staff was very accommodating. Nice wine list. The seafood was great. Keep in mind this is a pricey place.

We just returned from dinner at this exceptional restaurant. The service and food was perfect in every way. Our waiter was knowledgeable and the pace of the meal was leisurely. The key lime pie is not to be missed. If you are looking for a dinner to celebrate a special occasion there is no place better!
