“Amazing food, visually interesting and creatively delicious!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I was fortunate to dine at the restaurant when it was a Pop Up, and happy when it made Coral Gables it's home. The restaurant is trendy, with a creative look. Great to see the Chef add his personal touch before the dishes are served. I would recommend making reservations and going for dinner and Sunday Brunch. A tasty experience.

“Love this place! Our new favorite in Miami.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Tried getting reservations for Sat night and was told that they were booked solid for the next couple of weeks! We decided to walk-in without reservations and only waited about 30-40 mins, had some wine in the meantime. Glad we went because this restaurant is well worth any wait! Dishes are meant to be shared, tapas style, and they are served as they come out of the kitchen. We actually enjoyed this since it allowed us to try everything on the menu. Our favorites were the oxtail, the poutine, and the tomatoes! But everything we tried was excellent! the dirt cup for dessert was amazing, to the point we had to order a second one. We have been talking about this restaurant since we visited and have already made reservations for our next visit! And I thought no other restaurant could top Michael's!

“One of the better restaurants in Miami....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

When it comes to Miami cuisine....we'll were no NYC. But with places like Eating House popping up we are making our climb up the ladder. The food is inventive and comforting and takes a playful stance on some familiar foods (Like Captin Crunch Pancakes). I've notice a few technical issue here and there under/over seasoned plates or cloying sweet sauces or accompaniments on savory dishes. But all and all Eating House is on the top 10 Restaurants to go to in Miami.

“Great Unique Sunday Brunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

This restaurant started out as a "pop-up" restaurant by a local Miami chef who won the "Chopped" series award several months ago. He has created a unique take on food and it is delicious. They are also open in the evenings for dinner Tues-Sat. The location is right on the edge of Coral Gables, so taking a walk after eating will just take you down the business section of Ponce de Leon Blvd, which is not the walking experience of Miracle Mile about 1 mile away. But, the food is worth the wait and the locale. For brunch we had the potato nuggets, eggs benedict, the oreo waffles, fried chicken thighs and waffles (also offered on the dinner menu), and the dirt cup for dessert. Their wine menu is small but pairs nicely with the offerings. I had the grenache, which was very tasty and paired nicely with my eggs benedict which came with delicious smoked apple wood bacon. Each dish was prepared with a creative touch which is a refreshing change. Prices are reasonable for serving sizes. I would suggest calling for a reservation so you don't have a long wait. They just starting taking reservations since they have become very popular for a new small restaurant. They really are a success! I look forward to returning for dinner and trying their creative delectable food.

“Delight your taste buds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

I visited this restaurant with family and friends on its opening day. I did not know what to expect because its menu was very diverse, but somehow it all works out. We tried almost every dish and shared them. The Chicken thighs with waffles tasted so good, the Brusselsprouts were heavenly (although I had never tried them before, ) the pasta carbonara with bacon was outstanding. The dishes made with Nitrogen like the Key Lime Pie and the delicious Dirt chocolate dessert (served in a potting plant dish) was simply great, Portions are good for one-two people but when you are sharing between a group of five, it leaves you wanting more. Prices vary but since you want to try it all, it can be on the high side. Service was warm and friendly.
