So that’s how I felt. Sour. They wouldn’t seat us inside we said we’d wait. Little arrogant attitude. The Food offered was nothing wow. Expensive.

Had a business dinner here recently and was very pleasantly surprised. The hostess who seated us (we preferred outside despite the Miami humidity) made sure we had a quiet table and a fan close by. Our server, George was very open and helped us navigate a fairly complicated menu. It is a fusion place with dishes that are Japanese and Mediterranean. We decided to go with the very reasonable Miami Spice menu to keep things simple. The sushi was very tasty and with premium ingredients, like lobster and a variety of sauces. Higher end than most Miami Spice menus. The various servers who brought us our drinks, removed first course, brought second and then dessert were all very, very good and unobtrusive. They obviously train their people well. About half way through the meal the hostess came by to ensure we were enjoying ourselves and didn't need anything else. When a business discussion delayed our starting to eat our main course for a few minutes, George came by just to check if everything was okay since he had noticed we hadn't started. That attention to detail and service was great. Baklava for dessert was just right way to end the evening, and not oversized. The setting outside with dozens of tables in a garden setting was very peaceful. I don't know what the inside was like. Parking is either on the street (pay for parking) or Merrick Park garages.

Great spot to #chillaxin with tapas and cocktails in between shopping. My most favourite cocktail at this restaurant is the sparkling sake.

The calamari and sushi rolls are great. majdra, and other Arabic items are not as good ad some other middle eastern places. The happy hour at the bar only is pretty reasonable deal. the bartenders are great! I will go back for happy hour at bar and those awesome bartenders!
