There's a reason they don't have drink prices on their menu. I ordered a pina colada and it tasted like coconut water- not a drop of alcohol was in it!! Also ordered a kiddie cocktail for our daughter and my husband had 2 draft beers. Total bill was over $70!!! They charged us $25 for a kiddie cocktail- the whole... More

I had breakfast here one morning on my holiday in Miami and thought I'd give it a try. I had the pancakes which were cold and rubbery and service was painfully slow.

Do not come here if you looking to spend under $100 our bill was around $175 with added gratuity with two meals and 2 drinks. Still will come back for... More

The only option left for her was a mushrooms risotto - she hates rice and mushrooms. But by then our orders were in and we were sipping cocktails - so we could not leave.... More

Thanks to this restaurant I suffered for over a day. Had the tuna tartare which I should have known would have this result as I didn't think it tasted nice when I ate it. Oh how I wish I had sent it back!! Thought service was poor too.

I will never go back to this place. I'm not gay and I have not had much friction with people with this sexual preference. But I respect people no matter who they sleep with.

The chicken piccata was delicious and so were the cocktails! Staff were friendly and attentive. Because we were staying at the Hotel we even received 20% off our dinner. Great value!
