    Was stolen from on 9/24. My bill was around $200 total and I woke up today with a $311 charge. Am absolutely furious and will not be returning if you allow your servers to steal by putting in whatever they feel like for a tip.

    The place was really pretty inside and out. Went during lunch so it was pretty quiet and not too busy, but the service took too long. The server took a while to get to the table at the beginning and then to try to get their attention after was still hard. We usually don’t bother the servers because we know it’s busy but this was too quiet and slow to have taken so long. The food was good but nothing out of this world. Some items were overpriced.

    Had the Miami Spice meal. It was very good and wait staff was attentive. Wine list is good and prices aren't off the wall by Miami standards. The only downside was we waited 45 minutes to get our car back from valet parking. I imagine the restaurant has some control over who they hire for valet services.

    The food was great! The restaurant is beautiful, as well as the view. Our waiter was amazing. The only reason to give 4 stars instead of 5 is because the hostess forgot to tell the waiter that there was a birthday in our group. Once fe found out, he apologized and offered to bring something but we told him that it was fine. We know that it was not his fault, the hostess should have paid attention.

    Amara at ParaisoResponded on September 18, 2022Hello Ms. Monica, Thank you for the feedback and so sorry we did not pass on the birthday message. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and will think of us again for everyday dining as well as special occasions. Thank you! Amy Upthegrove, GM

    I had heard mixed reviews so I wanted to try it myself. The view is great the waiter was good the food was good but not outstanding nothing that cannot be fond at am average restaurant the best was the arroz verde bowl but the chocolate flan was bad. The Frosse was really good. The most upsetting was I had a reservation for 1:30 outdoors I arrived on time the hostess confirmed my reservation told me to wait a second A party that arrived at the same time was seated however they were inside so I waited 10 minutes went by the hostess was more worried about her phone and hair , another party arrived and was seated also inside … after 20 minutes of standing in front of the hostess I asked her how much longer at which point she asked me for my name again and replied I thought you had been seated !!! How can that be if I was standing in front of her all that time so she took us to a table inside no explanation why i was not seated outdoor when there were tables under the patio roof empty… at that point I did mot want to complain I just wanted to eat and get it done !!!

    Amara at ParaisoResponded on September 18, 2022Hello Ms. Edurne, I am so sorry you did not have an amazing arrival experience. Considering the on and off rain showers the last 2 days, we did have a lot of table movement and guest preferences to consider on the busy Sunday Brunch, which is why we recommend enjoying a cocktail at the bar in the meantime. However, thank you very much for the feedback as although mistakes can be made, it is how we recover from them. Hope to see you again soon. Amy Upthegrove, GM

    You can’t go wrong with anything your order here. We took advantage of the Miami Spice Menu. For appetizers we had ceviche and pork collar, for main the Corvina and dessert the chocolate flan. If you’ve never tried pork collar it was delicious with a yummy chimichurri sauce. The corvina was cooked to perfection. The portions were as if you ordered from regular menu. And of course there is always the view of our Biscayne Bay

    Starting with the valet parking which was Terrible! The guys didn’t want to get out from the umbrellas because it was drizzling a little and wanted us to walk and give them the keys and expect to leave the car in the middle of the street and didn’t offer umbrellas. Then, service inside was a mess, no one seemed to know what they were doing. At the end, the last waitress was great and tried to make the experience a little bit better. Ultimately we left only after 3 appetizers because we didn’t think it was worth to stay for the rest the f the dinner! Place is not cheap and service is not good, therefore, do not recommend.

    The food looked great , but it was bland and extremely expensive for what it was. The service from the front of the house to the back of the house was poor. There is lack of management in place, the server forgot made mistakes on our order / went ahead and argued with my dinning companion. Took over 10 minutes to get cash change. Truly a poor experience. The views / decor and location are AWESOME. A new restaurant needs to replace this one .
