“A Culinary Treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The lack of a menu provides for a unique dining experience. The chef/owner prepares your meal according to your likes and dislikes. Our 6-course meal was wonderful! He goes out of his way to make sure you are happy with the food. It was our second visit from out of town, and is a place I want to eat every time I am in the area.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

We had a great time here. Great wine, amazing food. Yes, it was expensive, but this was a special occasion where we did not mind spending a bit more than we normally would. The owner/chef is a great fellow who comes out to see what your likes and dislikes are; he greets every table. We opted for the 6-course instead of the 4-course. Each one was wonderful. We spent almost 3 hours and didn't feel like we were being rushed at any time. The rest of the wait-staff were always available, but not overattentive.

It's a great place for a special dinner, not great for families with small kids probably.

“the best in miami”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

This was the best restaurant in Miami for me, so far. The chef was very nice and the food perfect. The fish, the duck, the "ossobuco", and the risotto were all perfect. Whenever you decide to go there make sure to have an empty stomach. The place is not at the same level as the food but who cares when the food takes you far away...

“Outstanding Restaurant and Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Romeo's on the night before heading out on a cruise. There is no menu and that was part of the attraction. The restaurant is like a step back in time with Baroque-like decorations, polished woods and beautiful table settings. The food was exquisite starting with salmon carpaccio, breads, pasta with a cream rabbit sauce, osso bucco, risotto, exceptional fish dishes, canoli and nice wines. Our waiter was attentive and the meal was not rushed - you could enjoy each course and not feel pushed to finish - no hovering or intruding in our conversation. The flavors of each dish were wonderful, subtle and very real Italian - fine dining. We cannot wait to return to Miami just to enjoy this restaurant.

“It's good, but lacking.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

The place is nice, cozy, but can get loud. The service is good, but ordering is slow, as you have to wait for the Chef to visit your table and talk to you about what you wouldn't like to have. Yes, no menus, so you tell the Chef about any allergies, etc., and he give you three main course options (rabbit, meat, fish, for us). They then slowly deliver six courses. As I looked around, the courses were pretty much the same, salmon carpaccio, risotto, lobster ravioli, and the our main course. It was on the expensive side for the ace. The food was avwlerage.
