There are so many cool places on Ocean Drive, why did I pick this one? Ordered a Blackened Mahi Mahi, NO lemon sauce. Waiter makes a note and after ONE whole hour he serves me a overcooked Mahi Mahi, so dry I couldn't finish it....More

The happy hour advertising totally lured us in. BEWARE! It's two for one drinks PER person. Meaning, you cannot just enjoy ONE cocktail with your drink and have your buddy drink the other. NO matter what, you are forced to pay 30 dollars total if...More

Food is mediocre, drinks are watered down and overpriced ($15), and service is beyond words terrible. A 20% service charge is already included, so what do they care.

I'm giving two stars because the food was good but the service sucks. The waitresses need training and how to serve people that pay their salary and tips. In my case they try to scam me when I paid. My ticket was $27.51 including tax...More

Meaning ebb and flow of the tides in Italian and Spanish, La Marea is a refreshing addition to South Beach’s dining scene. One of distinguished interior designer Kelly Wearstler’s masterpieces, La Marea’s lushly landscaped entry terrace with intimate al-fresco lounging and dining spaces is the Ocean Drive hot spot to enjoy intuitive service and innovative culinary experiences. The diverse menu, conceived by Sous Chef Luis Moreno, celebrates the diversity in America with refreshingly eclectic dishes that also portray a global sensibility, prepared simply and elegantly. As a palate teaser, diners can opt for the Short Rib Empanadas, braised short rib salpicon, habanero chutney and red pepper remoulade sauce. Seafood lovers should not overlook the Pan Seared Tides Grouper with Spanish Rice, roasted plum tomato basil salsa with a Saffron beurre blanc sauce.
