    I tried to cancel this reservation for over a month and was not able to. Was not able to reserve another restaurant on this date because of this problem. Something is wrong with Open Table and this restaurant. You should try fix it!

    This was the second time at Abiaka the first time on a Tuesday. Service was over the top on Tuesday not so much on Saturday. However, Saturday was extremely busy.

    Abiaka is always outstanding! The food is superb, the ambiance is fun and modern. Views of either The Guitar Hotel or the open kitchen concept. Service is excellent. This was our fourth visit over a 5 year span and we’ve never had a bad experience.

    First time back to Abiaka since they reopened following the pandemic. Nothing to complain about as everything was very good. Food and service was amazing. We were seated promptly and our server Sophia made the meal a pleasant experience. We were never rushed and didn’t realize we were getting close to show time. The flash fried lobster starter was a great way to start the meal. For entree’s we had the wood fire cedar plank salmon and the seared scallops and Black Forest cake for dessert. I would definitely go back to Abiaka for dinner when at Hard Rock Guitar Hotel.

    Excellent food menu, loved the halibut. Lively and fun atmosphere, but a bit loud. I was greatly disappointed in the wine menu, especially options for white wine other than chardonnay...... the options for red were OK, but I must say for this caliber of restaurant, I expect top wine choices to compliment the seafood menu.

    My wife and I went on a Saturday night and it was extremely loud but I can understand that since it was busy and it didnt really bother us. The problem I had was with the food. It was honestly terrible, we started with oysters that were drowned in vinegar. Next we had hush puppies which were pretty good but not something to write home about. After that we headed to the main course and we chose the ciopinno and the prime rib. The Ciopinno was extremely bland and flavorless. The prime rib was cooked very well and was a great steak but tasted like charcoal. I literally felt like i stood over a bonfire and inhaled after eating it. Overall I would highly not recommend this place based on the fact that I dropped $300 on food that was no better than a local steak house.

    Abiaka is absolutely beautiful. The atmosphere is rich and the food is delicious. I do believe the entree portions could have been a little larger for the cost, however over the experience is very much worth it. Do yourself a favor and order a Brickell cocktail it’s absolutely stunning 🤩

    One of my favorite restaurants. Prime Rib was one of the best I have ever tasted. Side dishes and salads are unique but delicious. I have gone twice in 3 weeks and will continue to go whenever we are in south Florida. Restaurant overlooks the pool at Hard Rock Casino and has a great vibe.

    Appetizers of avocado humus and fish fry were very good. We shared a prime rib that was advertised for two but it was a boneless ribeye that was suitable for one. it was slightly overcooked. Had Bourbon cocktail that included a large clear ice sphere which was excellent. Server was extremely knowledgable and help with our selection since it was our first time. Would go back but dont recommend the prime rib.

    Wow!!! I have eaten at Kuros and Council Oaks many times before and I was looking to book them again but it wasn’t available so it was my first time at Abiaka. I was so impressed. The food was top notch the waitress Emma was superb. Everyone was well trained. I don’t want to give a negative review because of the excellent service and food but it would have been better if the decor of the place was a little more upscale. Maybe that’s why my expectations were low from the pictures I have seen online.

    Service was great (Ryan), the inside of the steaks were cooked perfectly but they were over charred. After sending them back, they came back much better. Crab hush puppies, grilled avocado and hearts of palm salad were amazing! Give it a try and ask for Ryan.

    Definitely not the experience it has been in the past. Our fish appetizer was over cooked and overall lacked the flavor we once loved. The prime rib was a very small portion that appeared to have been seasoned and grilled on both sides, more like a well done steak than a medium rare prime rib. The manager removed it from our bill but she never approached us, although we had been loyal customers. We enjoyed the bread, the grilled avocado and our excellent server Ryan. Otherwise, we left disappointed and missing the former Chef.

    Bernie was excellent and friendly. Everything was taken care of by him and there were no issues at all. He took extra time to talk with us and I really enjoyed the extra attention and his great stories. That kind of attention is very much welcomed and made me feel happy to tip him more than suggested on the receipt.
