“Classy novelty restaurant to try at least once”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

It was a girls night out on Fourth of July and we decided to give this fun place a try. We ordered the nitro-martinis to start and remember to get your cameras ready as the clouds of smoke disappear within 30s or so. The flakey lobster pop tarts were the best. I had the samurai tuna and found the tuna to be good but it was a bit cold and they had a hot soba noodles which tasted great as it's usually served chilled. We also had The Great American fillet which was good but needed more flavor. To finish the night, we ordered the chocolate indulgence which came in a treasure chest and sparklers. The brownies were to die for and it became our snacks for the next two days. Very creative graham cracker sand around the treasure chest as well. This place is ideal for families or just a fun night out. I'm guessing this would do well in Vegas for the novelty factor but the food needs an upgrade.

“FUNKY and FUN”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Really each thing we ordered was very fun and interesting to look at. it was also nice to look around at fellow diners and see their crazy plates too. The food is great though not AMAZING which is why I knocked off 1 star. I got the bucket of bones as my entree and it was very tasty. My husband got the Tuna which he liked alot as well. The grapefruit martini was very fun with the liquid nitrogen popsicles. Definitely a great place to go for a fun experience for special occasions.

Only negative: Menu is on an iPAD which means my husband and I had to take turns while looking at the menu which is very annoying!

“Amazing!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

What a fantastic experiance ! and it is an experiance not just dinner,from the nitro cocktails to the enormous candy floss dessert it kept us amazed.
If after all this Barnum type presentation the food was mediocre then you could almost forgive it but the food was great to the Mac & Cheese served on a giant mouse trap with a hunk of cheese,sliders served with a take home base ball bat ,steak served with three foot fork and a samurai sword with another dish it was a never ending delight.
I would defiantly reccomend it for a great night out and don't forget the Carnival dessert that arrives with its own duck shooting range ,Brilliant !!

“Delicious food with a kitschy twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We had the Sabrinatini to start which was so fabulous...a watermelon martini with a champagne popsicle kept cold by liquid nitrogen and with a chocolate monkey hanging off the side. I loved it. So reader beware, that may have affected the following review of the food. I thought it was terrific. I had the salmon and my bestie had the swordfish. Both were cooked to perfection and deliciously tasty. The presentation was crazy (this is where the kitsch comes in) and all in good fun. The drinks and food were so great we couldn't eat dessert.

Was it pricey? Definitely on the high end. And this is in Miami where everything is pricey! Didn't bother me a bit because the experience was very cool.

Don't hesitate, this place is not to be missed.
