Amazing authentic Mexican Food. Tortillas made fresh in an open view kitchen. Cant wait to go back. As a side note they add apx 18% service charge automatically and then the waitress explains that that money goes to the back staff and that we should top her separately. I found that a bit tacky. If 18% isn't enough tip they expect too much.
But overall dont let that stop you from tryin g this great place.

The restaurant is located in a very cool street in Wynwood where there are a lot of other restaurants and bars.
The food was good, really good dishes were the guacamole and the corn which were excellent. Drinks were very good. Portions are very very generous and we had to cancel some of our dishes as we were full after one course already. Outside sitting is very noisy with music and inside very noisy because of bad acoustics which is a shame because if you are having dinner with more than 1 person you cant really have a conversation with anyone apart from people sitting directly next to you. Our waiter was outstanding, extremely helpful, patient and attentive. Overall it is a nice place to visit if you feel like Mexican food and want a loud and lively atmosphere in a cool area of Miami.

So so so so nice. Amazing comfortable romantic outdoor table and so surprising how well the music next door from Brick fits in with the ambiance of the restaurant. Food (short rib tacos) were phenomenal. Waitress was sweet and attentive and had amazing drink recommendations. Hostess wished me a happy birthday which was also very nice. Decor was great and overall cleanliness also very good. Would 10/10 return and 10/10 recommend. Thank you for a very great birthday dinner.

Bakan was one of my most memorable dining experiences to date. Our waiter was well versed in the menu, including the 400+ list of mezcals to pair with your dinner. The food was delicious, ambiance was relaxing and service was incredible

I really liked this place when I saw it on Instagram. I had a reservation at 9pm, we were seated at 9:20pm.
We got to the table and The server was a little busy and we understood.
I had 3 birthday girls with me and when I went to the hostess because I couldn’t find my server, i asked her for churros as a dessert to sing happy bday but she told the kitchen was closed.
10 or 15 mnts later I saw the table right next to us got the same dessert we wanted.
Not sure if I want to recommend this place to my friend or go again.

very disappointing. i don't understand the abundance of 5 star reviews. everything is mediocre. the drinks are meh and thats supposed to be part of the appeal. room temperature beer and run of the mill cocktails and WTF is a service fee? whats up with a Mexican restaurant not starting with a basket of chips?? there were two salsas on the table. the server too the time to tell us about them. but nothing to put them on? we started with guacamole and i should have left after tasting bland boring guac... in a Mexican restaurant? one of the restaurants signature items are their blue corn tortillas. not bad soft for a taco, but totally wrong for deep frying into tortilla chips. first they are so hard, zero taste, no one enjoyed them. second they only gave 4 for a whole order of guac. the manager noticed us looking at half a bowl of guac and no chips. offered to refill our basket and never came back. the wife had the chicken quesadillas which were pretty good. just way to tiny. i had Asado a La Leña Para Taquear Estilo El Mercado De Oaxaca with skirt steak. the steak was actually very good, but the rest of the presentation was garbage. refried beans the looked like they were sitting around all night. corn that didn't look edible and a roasted poblano with cheese that wasn't melted. then we get the check and more service fee's....there are much better choices in Wynwood for food and there are much better Mexican restaurants

The most authentic Mexican food in South Florida, except they serve plates with lemons instead of limes (something that is never done in Mexico). The mole and pibil are excellent, my crab tacos had shells in each of the three tacos.

I am very happy that this restaurant exists and people can get a real feel for Mexican food, not TexMex

Tortilla chips for guacamole came burnt. Did not like corn appetizer. Barely ate it and server did not remove from the bill. The restaurant was so noisy inside that you could barely have a conversation. Server made an adjustment on the kid's menu that we were grateful for which is the only reason why I rated the service better than everything else. I was given the wrong cocktail and was not brought the correct cocktail until we were almost done with dinner, so I had to chug it when it came time to leave. Food was just ok. Not a great experience overall and would not go back.

Generally, had a great experience. Unfortunately, there was a toddler out way past her bedtime who was screaming and doing toddler things which took away a bit of the enjoyment. It was loud and the music was energizing but since we were seated right next to her, the screaming overpowered the music. However, the food was very tasty, the drinks enjoyable and the service was great. I would certainly return.
