    It was way over rated, we left the Queen to go there thinking it was going to be better, only thing I can say is skip it and save you money. Definitely over rated and priced for what you get. Up there with one of the worst restaurants we have eaten at.

    Food was overpriced and the quality was poor. $25 for 6 wings, 3 flats and 3 drums, is ridiculous. Also, $23 for four pieces of shrimp is ridiculous. I will not recommend.

    My experience wasn’t bad, however i put down a $175 deposit for a table of 7 (bc that’s the restaurants policy of $25pp) and never received it back! Mt card was ultimately charged for the deposit and they never returned it, after receiving an email saying it was being reversed.

    My first time ever going and yes I would definitely be returning !!! I went on Valentine’s Day I had reservations but I was running late called which it did take some time for them to answer but thank god they answered and I was able to get a later time and still have my seat inside! I would definitely recommend doing a reservation you will not be disappointed, But not only that the place inside is so beautiful they have it clean and the staff is so nice and attentive, and the food!!! Was 10/10 so good the fried rice was better than any hibachi restaurant I ever been to lol and the lobster mac and cheese excellent , the cocktail I had was good not that strong but get you feeling good , the music and atmosphere in there is just lit they place all the jams literally! Old school throw backs and all they have it playing. It is pricey but worth it in my opinion just have your pockets ready because your going to want to spend lol

    Atmosphere is great. Don't choose this spot for an intimate dinner this is more of a vibe go out and have fun type of deal which is perfectly fine. Music is bumping with nothing but bangers and the food was great. Took a while to get our food and during the time it didn't seem like there were too many waiters on the floor. Overall I loved it and would most definitely recommend it.

    Took a while to be greeted. Then took about 30-45 minutes for drinks after we ordered. Also ran out of stuff so orders had to be changed. Food came out about 30-40minutes after drinks. Didn't feel very welcoming and we were their to celebrate a birthday.

    The scene was warm, inviting and sexy. I loved the lighting, music and overall atmosphere. The food was excellent. Cooked to perfection, flavorful and fresh. The drink I had was the Playa Playa and it was mixed perfectly. I highly recommend people visit this spot. You won’t be disappointed.

    Plan a birthday dinner for my mom, for her last night in miami really excited to experience this restaurant, was not greeted and when finally recognized and seated, service quality was poor and felt ignored, were only two other tables (which already had food) never was approached by waiter, other workers sitting around the bar, had to ask to be serve after already being there 30+ mins felt like my time and reservation fee was waisted. So we just got up and left and went somewhere time and money was appreciated. Ruin the night for sure. Beautiful atmosphere for pictures but never had a chance to get the full experience.

    From the time we arrive everyone from the manager on down to the waiters, we’re very mean, and rude, absolutely dismissive towards my dinner party. The waiter kept slamming and cups at the table. When you asked him a question or requested silverware it took forever for us to get it. The ambience was beautiful. The food was good but I would never go back and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

    The food is really good and the price of the actual food is good but their service fee is ridiculous and still you’re expected to tip . My bill was 250 because of a 40$ service fee . Why a service fee i don’t get that . Now if it was gratuity ok I would understand . I’ve been to many fine dining places and I don’t recall being charged a service fee maybe im wrong but yea no ! Everything else is fine the place is nice hip hop music is played and the lights are low and nice oh yea and they charge 9$ for water which is crazy

    The worst. Arrived at 8:30 PM for an 8:30 PM reservation and was seated. Wasn’t even asked if a server came to the table until 8:46 PM. Received water at 8:55 PM. In between, there was nothing but loud , explicitly raunchy music as I am seated between hookah smokers. Food was subpar. Never again. This place is for kids wanted to blow money on Spring Break.

    Took my daughters there to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The food was amazing! We had the seafood tower, oyster Rockefeller, and porterhouse steak. Drinks were on point. Music was popping. Definitely will go again when I’m in Miami. It’s a night spot so get there after 9 if you’re there for the music.

    We went for NYE dinner and the restaurant had a three course set menu. Our waitress was very attentive and the drinks and first course were great, we had high hopes for the rest of the meal. Then we waited. We watched 3-4 other couples receive their entrees after arriving and ordering after us. After almost 90 minutes our entrees finally arrived completely overcooked and not edible. The chef came out and insisted on re-making the orders, at this point we were ready to leave and continue our other NYE festivities. The second round of entree took an addition 30 minutes, but was cooked properly and was fairly good but the original wait and quality of food was awful. We ended up spending $600 on a very disappointing meal overall, I would strongly suggest going elsewhere

    Upon visiting Playa for my birthday dinner with friends, I ventured in with mixed reviews in mind. As a first-time guest, I was keen on exploring whether the place lived up to its hype. The ambience echoed similarities to the Victory Lounge in Mid-town Miami but exuded a more sophisticated charm. The music, pleasantly moderate in volume, allowed us to converse without any hindrance. I opted for the purple lychee martini, a flawless choice with a rating of 10 out of 10. As for the cuisine, the seafood chowder my friend ordered was flavorful but slightly oil-laden (8/10). My selection, the jerk chicken and shrimp pasta, boasted remarkable flavors with a delightfully light sauce that avoided messiness. The shrimp leaned a bit towards saltiness, while the chicken was exceptional, garnering an overall score of 9 out of 10. Another friend indulged in the wicked shrimp (8/10) and the fried rice (7/10), finding the latter falling short compared to previous experiences. The vegetarian pasta, however, stood out with its fantastic taste and a hint of spice, earning a perfect score of 10 out of 10. Our server offered helpful recommendations throughout. In general, Playa surpassed my expectations, garnering a rating of 9/10. However, my experience was slightly marred by the restaurant's repeated calls regarding my reservation due to their last-minute holiday party. They altered my reservation time a day before and called an hour before my booking to emphasize punctuality as their kitchen would close shortly after my reserved time because of their party. Though slightly inconvenient, my friends and I still managed to enjoy our time.

    Was recommended this restaurant/lounge, so decided to try while down here on a quick vacay. My experience was far less than superb. Our reservation was at 9pm, we were told at 9pm that the kitchen closes at 9:30pm due to there being a private party arriving at 10pm. My gf and I had to rush to get food. If a private party was going on, why would a restaurant allow people to book reservations so late. Our server was terrible! He was inattentive, due to being at a table full of women. We felt he spent more time at their table doing who knows what instead of answering questions about the menu (again first time visiting) etc. we ordered appetizers and two drinks. The drinks were terrible (sent one of them back). They both tasted like rubbing alcohol. No balance in flavor at all. The food was good! We ordered the oysters, wings, and steak egg rolls. This place is pretty expensive, what made me upset the most was getting the ticket and seeing the server got a 20% gratuity tip that was already factored in. He was awful! He done nothing other than pour water into a dirty cup, and bring extra sauce for our wings. He was not deserving of the tip at all. I would not recommend, nor did I feel it was anything there worth visiting again.

    I loved Playa Miami! The ambiance is everything!!! Their picture wall was cool/pretty but the lighting doesn’t do my pictures justice. The food was delicious! I had the honey Sriracha wings and they were mouthwateringly amazing! I’m drooling right now thinking about it. It was seasoned by the gods! I had fried rice and the truffle chicken. They too were seasoned deliciously. The rice I would have preferred not so seasoned but I think the sauce they add to it is what gives it that salty flavor, it was a tiny bit much. The chicken I savored with each bite as I was not expecting it to be so good! The sauce it was in…yessss! I had the “Razclat” drink, it was good but it didnt taste like it had much alcohol in it considering they’re like $20 for a regular glass. Perhaps it’s the type of drink that creeps up on you, not sure. It was my birthday so I was expecting more of a kick. The Dj is great as well he definitely mixes amazingly! I can see myself coming to Playa with my female friends to have some scrumptious food and great vibes.
