Heard about this restaurant up north by a couple of friends and since i was doing business down in miami i stopped by with friends. Atmosphere is exquisite , very original and exotic. We were overlooked by the manager a little too much . I suggest he needs to lay back a little bit . Got our table . To my surprise it was very slow. But decided to stay. Our server Alex was right on top of everything . Recommended a lobster salad with Squash that was delicious. Then suggested to try their Maine lobster and Rissoto with a nice bottle of wine ,which we did . We enjoyed our stay and the food was fantastic ,service was excellent which we are not used to in south beach. But our bill was a little bit too much. Will come back tho

We were welcomed by the manager (witch really kept an eye on our table and made sure we are well taken care of) The food is definatelly diferent but with so many italian places and steakhouses around this type of different is welcomed. It was fantastic and everything we ordered was just delicious (sea bas is a must ) .I eat fish most of the times wherever I go and this was by far the best I had. The decor of the place is very original so if you are a artsy type of person this is the place for you.Thank you,will go back soon.

At 930 the place was essentially empty. The decor and atmosphere is for a loge/club. The service and the staff are excellent very knowledgable and helpful. The menu goes over board with the hole sensual marketing slant.

The food was good but not great. The Seafood Bowl was disappointing, had to fish for food in it and there was not much lobster meat to the lobster in it. Suggest order a sea bass or another fish. The scallop appetizer had a little too much salt and soy.

Think the main attraction is the atmosphere but with an empty restaurant that was lacking.

Way overhyped. Simply put this restaurant has no place being in the top 10 in Miami.

First the good. Excellent atmosphere and amazing wait staff. Attentive and helpfull in every aspect. As far as service goes this could be considered a top 10 place.

The bad. The food. We had the seafood platter to start (we were 2) and the lobster tails and shrimp were both too chewy (read over cooked and far from fresh)

Next was the seafood bowl. Same issue with the lobster and shrimp. As well as the tuna sashimi , good but nothing to write home about.

For the price of this meal and drinks (over $400) I couldn't justify the value we received.

Miami might be known for its high prices, but this is an extreme.

If your looking for a place for a club type atmosphere and some great drinks head over after 11pm.

If its a great meal you're looking for, think twice

A little nervous when we pulled up, because not in the "normal" South Beach area! But I tend to find the best places to eat " off the strip". Handsome host who ended up being our waiter, friendly at the door. Ladies be careful walking in, patch of grass in the door, but hard wood after the main entrance. Sexy dinning area, we were there at 8 pm & the only people there that early! Don't understand why people eat so late down here! But everything we ordered was great! Even the bartender brought a drink over that he was "trying out", great martini with a cute flower in it! Had a goat cheese and tomatoe salad and huge prawns for appetizers and the sea bass and filet for main course! Everything was delish! The filet didn't even require a knife to cut and sea bass fell apart with a fork! This place is not cheap by any means, but we knew that coming to Miam.
