I should have been here long time ago living in Brickell for several years. Finally after just coming back in town I decided with a business college to go there. We decided to only have starters and we had a whole bunch of them and I must say all of them was excellent, I did not take photos but I... More

Around a month ago we started frequenting this restaurant. To be honest, in general it is good, but lately it has shown signs of reckless attitude. We have always liked the food with a few exceptions, which happens, nothing is perfect. However, we find that the service is slow, has an attitude and a certain air of arrogance or maybe... More

We went here for lunch on a recent trip to Miami and was pleasantly surprised by their fresh selection of oysters. They have a very extensive selection of oysters but I'm partial to PEI and they had about 3 different selections of those on the menu. They were so fresh and delicious. We also tried the whole snapper and curry... More

Was at the Mandarin Oriental to meet a relative from DC and wanted a nice place nearby to have lunch and visit. We scored on both counts. The Prix Fixe meal was delicious- choice of appetizer- we had the nymph clams, seafood stew, dessert. This changes weekly. We also ordered the Coconut Mussels and Curried Fisherman's Stew which had lots... More

We visited for the first time during Happy Hour. Their oyster selection is impressive - east coast, west coast and Canada. We will definitely do it again!

My husband surprised me with a Spa day and date night to this restaurant. Cocktails - lemon drop and Moscow mike were excellent. Price was very reasonable. They had gluten free vodka (Copain, Titos) which was awesome! Service - it was busy so it was slow as expected. Waiter was knowledgeable about gluten free. Food quality - oysters were fresh... More

Everyone ordered something different at our table and we all really enjoyed the flavors of each serving. The gazpacho was amazing, and the crab cakes were stellar, as well. everything tasted fresh and flavorful, and between my gazpacho and crab cakes, I was well-fed. My husband complained that the IPA was not good, but the other drinks were good. We... More
