    to start off, dont order beers. We ordered 3 bottled beers and they all were gone bad. Never seen that happen before. Also, they allow boats to be parked and have their music on blast and not respect the music of the restaurant which doesnt allow for the rest of their guests to have an enjoyable dinner. Out of the 7 plates we had, unfortunately, I can only say 3/7 were good. 2/7 were alright and 2/7 were poorly cooked and seasoned. our tab was near 600$ and it was short of satisfactory. Would not be eating here again, too much hype for this location. Was left wanting more and expecting more. Forgot to mention horrible for parking and $20 valet fee on top of your expensive food tab

    We found a hair on the food it was very nasty. The manager didn't even bother to come to see us. The server apologized many times but I didn't felt the care of the management team. We didn't had to pay for the plate in question of course but the replecement (cebishe) we did. Honestly the food was bland, no flavour no spices, the fish and lobster just tasted the same honestly. We pretty much stopped eating after the insident. Prob will not go back.

    This restaurant is very nice. I came there to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious and the staff were great. I have only one issue. They were supposed to sing happy birthday to me but they didn’t. We sat for a while waiting but it never happened. I still loved the ambiance and food.

    My sister is having radiation treatments at Sylvester so I wanted to take her out for a nice dinner. Casablanca was so kind to seat us by the water where my sister enjoyed watching the boats come and go. She also thoroughly enjoyed the branzino. It was a special night that we won’t forget!

    One of the docked boats’ music was playing somewhat at a high volume and it made for a little worse experience since there was no one in the boat - it was just docked on the water with music blaring loud. Otherwise service was amazing!!!! OUTSTANDING!! Thank you

    We came for the Miami spice menu. We ordered and the waiter brought out the ceviche… so we asked on the Miami spice menu it has avocado, he said oh you want that menu and left. Came back with the same ceviche and when we asked about the avocado, he said oh that’s the other location… when the menu we were looking at was for this location. It was just a terrible experience, he wasn’t very nice and didn’t even care to accommodate our food issue/ I just asked for the bill paid it at full price and left. FYI, we barely ate the ceviche but I was already over it. I would never go back there. It was a birthday and the birthday girls bday was ruined because of this

    The food and service was great. Our server was Emilio and he was terrific. We were a party of 4 and went on Saturday night. We originally requested outside but switched to inside...outside seating was packed with people and it was extremely hot. Inside the tables were more spread apart and it was slightly cooler...but still hot. They need to work on their air-conditioning ...it was totally insufficient. The other negative was that the restaurants valet parking was full and we were there before 7 pm. The Miami River area is devoid of parking but luckily we were able to valet at the restaurant next door. We would recommend this restaurant but go at a cooler time of year.

    Only complaint would be how close the tables are stacked on top of eachother! Food, service, views, menu options, all were excellent. Just felt very claustrophobic, even outside. I couldn’t back my chair up or get comfy because the table behind was literally on my back. The seating inside is also very tight. Would rather have to wait and have less seating then be stacked so tightly!

    Hemos estado varias veces en este lugar. Pero esta vez fue una total decepción y vergonzoso porque fuimos con amistades desde otro estado. Los habíamos invitado a comer este Porque nos parecía algo que se debe hacer cuando viajas a mi Miami. El valet parking y la mesera muy poco agradables. La comida ok. El olor del perfume del baño tan fuerte que se mezclaba con el olor a marisco fue desagradable y mucho calor. No creo que regrese

    Service extremely slow. We were a table of two and our waitress was clearly focused on the larger tables. Took forever to order anything. Then when we did, I ordered items exactly off the menu but was told it was called something else in a very rude manner when I challenged to ensure I was getting what I ordered. Boats docked for service and played horrible and loud music.

    Service was timely but some of the portions leaved a lot to be desired. For example the coleslaw was just a spoonful that accompanied my lunch . In addition it tipped over when the waitress brought it to my table and it soaked my sandwich bread . My guest towel accidentally fell on the floor. The waitress instead of replacing it with a new one told her to pick it up and use it . Valet parking is quite expensive.
