“Service was bad. Food was bad.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Less and less people come here now, the fish is frozen not fresh and the service people are lazy. We ordered the mani mani sandwich and it was a pr made piece of fish. We ordered the steak and it was very skinny and covered in a sauce to cover the fat and look of it. The French fries were not hot. The service person was unconcerned and lazy.

“Great Food and Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

If you go to Lincoln Road Mall, stop here and eat outdoors if the weather allows it. Fantastic menu with so many items, it is difficult to decide what to order. Large portions, GREAT food and Great service. I eat here every time I visit Miami Beach

“Good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

The food was good but nothing special. The ahi tuna was very well done but the rest of the dinner was very bland. The chicken teriyaki seemed to be lacking teriyaki flavour. The creme brûlée was excellent. The waiter was very attentive.

“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

We ate here twice. Once for breakfast which was excellent. I had the Belgian waffle and my husband had the Western omelet. He said it was the best he's ever had. We had dinner another night. Got there early for the happy hour deals on the appetizers. Had calamari and sliders which were excellent. I had spaghetti and it was delicious. The sauce was not too spicy and a little bit sweet. Great location for people watching. Service was very attentive and the prices are very reasonable for the area.
