Thunderstorms in MIA - quelle surprise. 90 minutes late to get to the St. Regis, but still hungry and the J&G reviews are mediocre, so venture out to this place at 10:10 when posted that it closes at 11.
Enter the place and it despite two people being up front, it takes three minutes for them to even TURN AROUND and acknowledge my presence, much less seat me.
Get seated, despite the tables being less than 50% full, at the absolute worst table in the place, right next to the door. Would have been tripped over by every person coming in/out. Then have the waitress come over and insist that had to place both the appetizer and the main course right away as the kitchen was closing. No specials. No water. 45 minutes before advertised closing. WOW. I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
It is too bad, because the food was excellent. ONE EXCEPTION - be sure to ask what exactly is contained in each dish. There was an appetizing seafood dish, except I asked what fish was contained in the seafood rice dish. Tilapia. Wow. Do not go too far out on the limb there with anything exotic or expensive there guys..
Ended up ordering an octopus/olive appetizer, which was great, if not overpriced. The sangria was excellent, and the ceviche and beef entree were both exquisite in taste. But it was a tortuous, service-bereft journey to get there. The suggestion of whether I wanted any dessert or espresso was really disengenous since I saw them cleaning the espresso machine while ordering the entree 20 minutes prior.
If it sounds good and looks good by all means go...just get there 2 hours before posted closing time to not feel like relatives that have been there for a week. Shameful
