We liked the Miami Spice menu and the service but the pricing for 2 glasses of wine was like the whole meal.

The place is nice and it can be romantic and also casual.

I was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant. I’ve been to Bourbon steak and had high hopes for this other Michael Mina restaurant. It definitely disappointed and I won’t be going back. The prices are very high for what you get. I’ve eaten Greek food that was 10x better for less than 1/2 the price. We ordered club soda as a drink and the waitress brought these two tiny little bottles. Never told us they did not have club soda from the machine, never offered a big bottle of San Pelegríno etc. The little soda water bottle was $ 4.50 each while I am sure the whole big San Pelegríno bottle was about $ 8. I had also forgotten that it was Miami Spice.. No mention of it, or they don’t give you the menu. Once I remembered it was already too late. Saga aki was great. Marinated olives very disappointing. I’ve gotten better olive presentation for free at other Greek restaurants. My husband liked his salmon bowl, but my chicken pita lacked flavor. The tatziki had very little flavor. Waitress waited for us to finish eating to bring more water. The whole experience was lackluster. I also definitely felt that service could be significantly improved. This was our first visit, it makes sense that you share what our options are. Also, why offer Miami Spice and you don’t share the menu with your guests. First and last time. What a disappointing experience.

Underwhelmed. This is substandard for a Michael Mina restaurant.
Service terribly slow. Food edible but no taste or flavour whatsoever. Used to his caliber of restaurant at Bourbon and StripSteak. Maybe he should stick to this. Doubtful this restaurant will last.
I feel bad to have wasted a lunch visit here.

Jackie was our server, she was very tentative and had suggestions when we weren’t sure what to have. The wine and food was delicious and the staff created a comfortable ambiance from the hostess to James behind the bar and even the GM checking in on guests. All in all a great experience, looking forward to dining here again.

We had a disappointing visit. The menu was very appealing, and we ordered some starters and lamb chops and the lobster spaghetti. The lamb chops came out way way overdone and we never received side dishes we ordered. The lobster pasta was delicious. But worst of all, the waiter basically disappeared after we discussed the ruined lamb. He left us alone for about 30 minutes while we looked at our plates and empty glasses. They offered us a complimentary dessert, but after sitting there so long, we were eager to go. They removed the lamb chops from the bill. I’ve been to several. Michael Mina restaurants in the past, but this visit was not a success.

I visit the restaurant almost twice a week. Don’t understand why quinoa salad bowl takes between 30-40 min (when Resturnt is almost empty since I usually come when it opens at noon). Last time fish on it was almost raw. Didn’t finish my dish and no one seams to care.
Every time I come I think this would be my last time and than I give another chance since not many options I like. Manager never came to my table even at times when it was obvious taking too long. This is based on several visits.

Love this place! Mostly come for lunch as the menu seems more appeasing! The dinner menu seems a bit dull. I wish the dinner menu can be much better and include falafels and other dishes from the lunch! But otherwise great service and atmosphere. My kids love it as well. Great family spot for a lunch!

It was a Sunday brunch. The food was OK but the electronic music from a DJ was so loud that no one could talk. We asked the manager to bring the volume down, he asked the DJ who did it, but after the manager left he brought it even louder. My wife and I shouted at each other for a while but then ate in silence as it was impossible to have a meaningful conversation. A good place to go alone, or if you are deaf, or if you are going with someone you hate and you do not want to have a conversation with.

Very pleasently surprised by my 2lb (wouldn't bet on that being the actual weigh of the fish, but..) baked branzino. It was fresh and baked well but still juicy. I went for the healthy late night grub but the place was jumping with twenty year olds enjoying the Miami skyline over drinks and DJ.

Had a very nicely spaced out table indoors where we felt comfortable and safe. It was a birthday dinner and the service was stellar. Oysters and branzino were fresh and well prepared. I wasn't a big fan of the baklava as it was very crunchy and cinnamon overload - and I do typically love baklava. This was too much of a twist on a traditional baklava. Otherwise this is a great addition to aventura area and we will be returning.
