AMAZING! One of my favourite stops in Miami for food, drink and vibes.
The food took forever to come out, when it did, it was cold.
We were a party of 4 and ate at separate times.
Hopefully it was just an off day.
The cheese puffs and fried cheese appetizers were great.
Our server Luis ! He is the best !
Bar was slow and kitchen too, but we are in the middle of the Corona virus crisis, then we can understand.
Food was ok ... steak and eggs ( so bad ) but pork collar and green rice 👌🏼
Wonderful place, I love it, thanks!
Beautiful restaurant with an outstanding service and view.
Great ambience with location on the water. Food was good and service attentive. Unfortunately, my son's strip steak was not cooked to temp he wanted. Sent back and was still too rare. Kitchen finally got it right with a new piece of steak. We enjoyed every dish we ordered and would gladly go back next time we're in Miami. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Beautiful setting. Well executed fish, roasted and ceviche. Good sides. Great cocktails. Not particularly creative. Highly recommended.
The setting is lovely, right on the water. If the hanging plants which decorated the outdoor seating had been real instead of silk, it would have been even nicer. My overall impression is that I felt gouged. The prices are a 10, the food is a 7. I tried the grilled octopus appetizer on the server’s gushing recommendation. It was interesting and I am glad I tried it but neither that, my partner’s steak, the salad we shared, nor anything else we had that night was truly outstanding. Some restaurants you leave knowing you definitely want to tell others about your find. To us, this wasn’t one of them.
We have been to Amara many times and always enjoyed. Our last visit was a disappointment as we had a server who was completely inattentive - which is not the norm.
Beautiful view you cannot get anywhere in Miami paired with best food in city!
Had chicken taco salad which was served in an uninspiring way.
Wonderful food, great service and exceptional water view. Highly recommended.

Had dinner on March 5, but not a great experience. we had a drink at the bar before dinner and our bartender was gruff and very unfriendly. This is not acceptable in a nice restaurant. We sat down to find the table was missing Cutlery and gum was stuck under the table. We were moved to the patio and sat outside. The food was good overall but the manager had zero skills when dealing with complaints. Best to avoid this place.

Mal servicio; menú limitado y precios demasiado altos.
Great place, bad service.
Its a nice place to have a drink.
Hello DayannaD, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't receive great service. Feel free to reach out to me personally via email at email@example.com m, if you wish to discuss further. Cheers, Shannon Kiely
Amazing food, ambiance, and views. So great
Sitting on the balcony/outside deck was delightful: the view of Biscayne Bay is unmatched. My friends and I come fairly regularly to Amara and are fans of Michael Schwartz's. That said, continuing attention to the quality of the food is a must. The fish sandwiches were excellent but the three-ceviche platter was boring, for example. We'll continue to be fans but hope that further attention might be given to the tastes of the lunch-time offerings.
Good Afternoon Peter, Thank You so much for taking the time to leave us kind words and some feedback. We will continue to work on the menu and elevate the experience for you next time you return! Look forward to seeing you soon Billy Y General Manager
Birthday brunch was perfect! Excellent food and cocktails.
Mucha espera después de la hora reservada
Excellent food, beautiful place. It was our first time in this restaurant. We went there to celebrate my wife birthday. Raul the server destroyed our experience. He never mention to us the food specials or the food specialties, he just stand like a McDonald’s drive thru teller and asked for the drinks and the food we want. Brought the appetizers after the main plates. We asked for the check and Raul again didn’t have the courtesy to ask us for deserts or coffee. As I said we went there to celebrate my wife birthday. We paid and left. We stayed there for one hour and half.
After that we went to Komodo to get a well deserved desert and drinks for the birthday girl.
Again the food and the place it’s beautiful.
2nd time visiting this place just to give it another chance but i won't come back to eat. Drinks are great and the view is nice.
