Excellent steaks and seafood with superb waterfront views. Wonderful service too. This is a well established restaurant that simply does it better than most other places in South Beach...

“Enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We stumbled across this bar and restaurant when we took a walk around South Pointe Park. There is an outside bar so grab yourself a glass of wine and watch the incredible sunset over Miami.

“Long wait for food -- but it was DEELISH and worth it!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I don't know what happened, but eight of us ate here the other night and we waited forever for our entrees. Plus, they squeezed eight of us at the table that was clearly too small. I HATE when restaurants do that and we should have made them move us. It's not as if we were eating in a chain steak house or anything...our bill came to over $800 we should have been comfortable.

All that kvetching aside, the food was absolutely perfect. There wasn't one complaint from the table. My filet was like "butta", and cooked perfectly.

“Great location and good food, just not good for large groups”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great location to watch the cruise ships leave and is located right on the southern most part of South Beach. A very nice outside bar and seating area. On past dining experiences, everything has been impeccable. We dined the other night and had a party of 8 and were crammed at a small table that was suitable for 5 or 6 max. Everyone had legs and knees bumping under the table and the waiter could hardly get around the table as we were so close to neighboring tables.

Appetizers arrived promptly and were delicious. Our entrees took forever...about 2 hours after we ordered and well after appetizers had been removed. In fact, it took so long that we had to ask our waiter if there was an issue in the kitchen and then it was another 15-20 minutes until they finally arrived. The quality of the food was excellent and everything was delicious.

If I had it to do over again, I would have advised the Maitre 'D that the table was was too small for our group so that we could have been moved to something more suitable. At a minimum the waiter should have advised his manager that our table was under-sized so that he could have made a personal apology and sent a bottle of wine over. Sadly no one from the restaurant, other than our waiter, ever came to our table.

The food quality was excellent and everyone enjoyed their meals. One point to note is that the wines are VERY overpriced. I don't mind paying double or 2.5 times what I can buy the bottle for in the store but 4-6x the price is just outrageous and added to the "pain" of the evening. While I would go back to this restaurant, I would only go with a party of 6 or smaller.
