  • We spent about 30 minutes on the pier before leaving to return to South Beach. The weather was great for mid-January. While we didn't get to see the actual sunset, the afternoon vista was wonderful.....  more »
  • The food was wonderful. The service was quick. The entertainment was amazingly great. We went there 3 days for lunch and to listen to music.  more »

  • The only bad part is open seating so for a group of 6 we had to wait about an hour around sunset to actually get a dinner table. Groups of 2 or 4 would be much easier to get a table. Beautiful views. Great food. Fish tacos were awesome!
  • Both my husband and I had the chicken tacos. Came out completely deconstructed on a tray and chicken was lukewarm at best with plastic cups of toppings. Chimichurri sauce was not fresh tasting at all. No silverware in sight. Had to deduce that forks only (at least at our table) were in white paper bags in the napkin/condiment caddy. Server was scattered thinly amongst the tables. When she finally brought the bill, she asked if there was any way we could pay cash as their machine was down "again". She pointed us to a nearby ATM, which of course incurs a ridiculous fee. She only got a modest tip given the totality of the circumstances. As we left, she proceeded to chase us down the sidewalk saying "the bill doesn't include the tip". Crazy since she did get a tip! We told her to take it up with her manager. Not her fault for some of it, but I am not paying more than I need to for mediocre food and service when I had to pay ATM fees on top of the bill.
