Outdoor seating with a view of the river is beautiful. Great service. Food with a Cuban flair I think. It was delicious but pretty different than what you get at other equally nice restaurants. Definitely worth a try...

“Avocado toast” wasn’t what anyone would expect. It was a piece of griddled Texas Toast topped with flavorless *scrambled* eggs (!) and unripe avocado slices. It was like something one may have made at home in a pinch, but definitely not something one would pay for in a restaurant.

It's spacious. The view is spectacular. You're at the foot of Beale and your looking over the Mississippi River. I'm sure sunsets are unforgettable. There's open and airy indoor dining or there's a marvelous patio toward the river. It's very new as I write this review so it's crisp and clean and the decor is on point. The menu is nice and the concept seems to be a mash up of Southern and latin american cuisine. That's an intriguing concept anyhow. We ate brunch, which was nice, but might not be the best representation of what the restaurant is capable of. The service: ***this is during the pandemic. Our world has been run by high school and college students who just left their summer jobs to go back to school, so... The service was...not good. The waiter staff din't seem to get along or enjoy their jobs. Our waitress disappeared for extended periods of time and was inattentive. The food looked great. the others at the table enjoyed their food. Mine was avocado toast which is actually very plain there so not much to report.

Memphis downtown dining week at Cimas started w/a drunken Peruvian cocktail followed by an appetizer of pan-seared scallops on a bed of elote, then grilled cobia topped w/chimmichuri sauce, rice w/field & green peas. Dessert was a peach & ginger turnover w/toasted pine nut infused whipped cream. All-in-all, an extraordinary palate pleaser.

The food was very tasty- great combination of flavor and texture. The service was a little slow which normally wouldn’t have mattered because the view was so nice and it felt nice to sit outside, but the mosquitoes started biting us and we were absolutely miserable and ended up just standing inside while we waited for the check. The server also asked if we were there for a special occasion. I said it’s my sister’s birthday, but no birthday treat was provided. I’d prefer they didn’t ask if they can’t provide something.

The view of the river was beautiful even sitting on the inside. The drink menu was limited for brunch but the food was great. Our server, Marcus, was amazing. Since I didn’t get an alcoholic drink, he put my lemonade in a cute martini glass. I loved it.

This restaurant is located on the bottom floor of the hotel. The clientele at the hotel were very loud, walking through the lobby in their bathing suits.
The valet was hard to find and took way too long. So the atmosphere getting to the restaurant was terrible.
The food was above average.

The food was ok a little over price...just know you will have to pay a Beale Street tax, and the bar will automatic add a 20% tip to your bill. Other than that I enjoyed having drinks on the rooftop.

First, let me say that I understand the difficulties in the service industry right now. Our food was excellent. Our server did the best he could but the facility was woefully understaffed. I usually would not be so vocal to complain except we saw the manager sitting at the bar doing computer work while the limited servers were taking on water. We watched our drinks sit at the bar for at least 45 minutes before they were delivered to us. All the while the manager walked around, sat at the bar, and did nothing to help. I can excuse poor service from a thin staff but I cannot excuse witnessing zero leadership from the folks charged with running the place. I have a friend that runs a restaurant, and she would do anything to run food, drinks, and help her servers out. That's a basic role of a management job.

Eating alone during Covid is always a little too quite but CIMAS was very nice. Open and clean. The hostess offered me a seat against the window toward the river, great view but too much sun. I opted for a window seat road-side. Had the blackened Coiba. It was wonderful. I really enjoyed the hopping’ John which I haven’t had for years. Great food. Had the “One Night in Jalisco”. Cocktail. Liked it a lot but make sure you like spicy, it is. Only 4-stars due to the really crappy rum selection. Bacardi and Bacardi. That’s it. I expected more from a Caribbean restaurant. If you want a rum selection try the bar at the Hilton Garden In. On Union.

When we arrived we tried to use the valet service but after waiting about 10 minutes they told us the valet is only for hotel guest and not for the restaurant at this time. We paid for parking around the corner then walked in. Server quickly stopped by took our app drink and dinner order all at thr same time. Drink and app came out quickly about 10 minutes. My wife and I both ordered the same fish dish which took about 35 minutes to come out. Our fish was a over cooked but the sides were outstanding.

We were there for my birthday celebration. Everyone we spoke to was super friendly, from the hostess, the managers, and wait staff. When we were seated at a table inside, we asked if we could sit outside. It took a few minutes, but the hostess was able to sit us outside. There were no other tables occupied out there, so it was nice to have the patio all to ourselves. KT greeted us with water after what seemed like a good while, and he asked if we had been greeted, and we said no. He was able to take our drink and food orders since we had been waiting a while. We waited another good while for our drinks to come out, but they tasted perfect. Not too strong, not too weak. Our food came out a little bit later and it was so delicious! I ordered the sweet potato hash and the French toast for the table to share. Both were full of flavor and I left with a full belly! Our server April offered me either complimentary pancakes or a mimosa for my birthday. I opted for the mimosa since I already had the French toast with my meal. Overall, we had a nice experience dining there. It is part of a hotel, so the prices reflected that. Other than waiting a long time to be greeted once we sat down and also for our drinks, everything else was wonderful.
