La Moon is a unique and semiprecious gem in the Miami culinary scene. The restaurant serves Colombian food that is not haut or plebeian, but a nice representation of true colombian food.

The measure of any Colombian restaurant, in my opinion, is the Fried Yucca, The only place I know in Miami to get better fried yucca is in my kitchen (thanks to the skills of my lovely wife). The yucca is crisp and fresh, with a perfect golden color. Paired with Papas Criollas (yellow potatoes with grilled hot dogs) it gives you a great taste of Colombia. Now, before you look down on the lowly hot dog, give it a try. The hot dogs are sliced and grilled and seasoned perfectly with the potatoes.

Continuing on the hot dog theme, I am a fan of the Super Moon Perro - although this extravagant hot dog must be eaten carefully. It includes all manner of things, sauces and topped off with a quail's egg! For the more traditional, try the Bandeja Paisa. It is a platter with steak (or ground beef), rice topped with a fried egg, a moon-shaped arepa, chicharon, plantains, a sausage, avocado and a side of beans.

Pricing was excellent for the quality of food. For three people with drinks, appetizers and the main course the total came out to US$80.

Where La Moon perhaps falls short is on the wine list and on service. Service is sometimes a bit slow and the wine list is minimal. The ambiance is good. Not to loud, and space outside as well as inside to eat. There is interesting art work, although the space could be better organized.

I visited this restaurant for the first time in May 2012, and had to go back for my most recent visit to Miami in January 2013! The sauces for their food are delicious, and it's nice to sit outside on those warm evenings. Very reasonable priced for the quality of the experience.

The food is typical of the late night food in Colombia. Hot dogs, hamburguers, soups, arepas rellenas. Great taste, great hours! Opens until 6am on the weekends!

After a long night of partying, my friends and I got hungry. La Moon is known as the late night, after party munch spot. It was not what my friends thought of and since I been there before the experience was different. It was bad,...some of the things that were on the menu weren't available, there was a wait which in understandable, and for the price I could of gone somewhere else like Ihop. Next time I willl google healthy eating spots that have everything in the menu. La Moon should obviously bring there game up especially when is in the Brickell. Needs improvement in the menu, portions and space. Never going there again. Sorry.
