    The food is amazing!!! The tasting menu is so worth it, but it is extremely loud. It is small and all it takes is a few loud tables to force everyone else to yell over them and before you know it, your ears hurt.

    Outstanding food, server Cassandra didn’t miss a beat. Poor rating for service overall though because at the end someone we’d not met yet gave us a cue to leave while we were signing the check, which was condescending and unnecessary esp since it was a special occasion.

    This is a good example of how a Michelin Star actually damage the restaurant - with the exception one or two dishes - the food was flat, over indexing on the eye and forgetting the taste: the fish had bones and the meat was served cold. Overpriced degustation menu, the ambiance was as flat as the food.

    Both of our drinks were not done and they picked it up. These are 20$ drinks - when we brought that up the answer was that they were not sure if they can offer a free drink but they gave champagne instead. I have been to enough fine dining to pay the same price where this conversation wouldnt even happen. Food was great and service was good too but that part was disappointing. It is so trivial cost wise but now they lost a repeat customer over that paying 200$ plus in each meal.

    Must have been an off night Started the previous day when they pushed our res back 90 min and said it was an open table glitch. And then our server revealed they closed the place down before we got there for a basketball player lol Tried to put us at this very small high top and said we requested it (we did not) and asked for a table. Sat us next to the server station and kitchen door (didn’t think you’d have staff piling up at the server station at a Michelin rated restaurant. The floor next to the kitchen door was flooded, service was not great and the food 50/50. Was really looking forward to this one, but sadly a miss for us last night.

    Food was amazing. Incredible items and delicious pairings. Service lacked a little bit. Didn’t have cutlery for one of the meals and it was hard to track an employee down to get anything. Water refill took a while. Staff is very friendly and amazing otherwise. Excellent descriptions of the food and overall pleasant experience.

    Food disgusting, so far away from Michelin star, nothing special, rock music on background, empty place, I literally eat on the table not even a little mat under plat. The server drop the oyster and say yo me: “you going to eat the best oyster in your life now” such a idiot. I order the truffle brava, looks like plate for dog. Not presentation at all. Just some food throw there. Cocktail were good. I definitely not come back and not recommend to anybody, waste your time and money . THIS IS NOT MICHELIN STAR RESTAURANT!! DON’T LISTEN THE NEWSPAPER.

    We had the tasting menu and wine pairings. The wine pours were surprisingly small and the time between courses was rediculously long. We had high expectations for a one star Michelin restaurant and came away with an expensive bill for a disappointing experience.

    The team was able to accommodate the tasting menu after 9pm (even though it says that 9pm is the end). Food and service were phenomenal, with everything perfectly explained and delicious. Drinks were great too - Awesome food, awesome atmosphere! Waiting for the new Autumn menu in about a month according to our server and will go again!

    On our trip to Miami and after great anticipation for a restaurant with a big online presence our hopes where high for a great night out. After searching for a parking spot ( no private parking) We where “ welcomed” by a gentlemen whom did not really seemed to care about his customers. We where placed in the corner, plates where quickly snatched from the table but we had to move the cutlery our selves. We had to wait to be recognized by the waiter to even place a order for drinks. We where thrown of by this so decided to not follow the tasting menu and choose a la cart. We where assured that the courses would not come all at once so we could pare with wine. Sadly the first 3 dishes where at the table before we could finish our cocktail. Food wise we started with oysters, froie gras and patatas bravas. Taste was fine but just overpriced. We did have burnt bread with the froie gras. The waiter tried to take our drinks before empty. And that was the final nail in the coffin Very disappointed, taking European ingredients and wine does not justify the prices.
