530 OCEAN'S GRILL
Service was losy. The waiter, Nicholas, did not keep up with the table. in 1 1/2 hours our water glasses were never refreshed. Appetizers including a wedge salad, were served 3 minutes before the main courses came out. We were constantly having to ask for our waiter from other staff members. The Manager, Miguel was apologetic, but just too late. My husband ordered his meal without mushrooms yet the dinner came with them. Lastly, drinks were $20 per glass for one shot and $30 per glass for two shots. Horrible service and crazy prices. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Only reason we used it was because we had a $100 restaurant.com gift card.

Overprice for so so food. It would have been nice if they dont jackup the price for special of the day. Too too expensive when the price on menu was reasonable, the special was almost 3 x the highest price on the menu. Never again.

The food was outstanding. Most of the staff was outstanding also. The singer was great.

Food was decent and the main reason for even getting the 2 star rating. Service was poor despite the fact there were just as many waiters as there were diners. Prices were steep even for Ocean drive despite average quality entrees and the rather average menu. Food was good but didn't justify the pricetag. Drinks were also high compared to the rest of the area. Atmosphere was okay. Would definitely choose one of the many other places lining Ocean Dr. before returning.

Food was good. Service below par especially when it came to redeeming the coupon......such underhandedness/crookedness in these Ocean Drive restaurants!!!

They have "sneaky" pricing technique whereby extremely over priced specials (like fish& chips at $50!!) are not on a menu but are pushed heavily by waiter. Regular can soda is over $5!!

Waiter overcharged for a couple of our selections.....only 2 tables dining but the waiter Christian couldn't find the time to refill our beverages..

Service was subpar. One of the guests in my party could not readily substitute one of the vegetables in her entree because it was deemed a "managerial decision." Another guest did not receive his water with the rest of our drinks. Oh and by the way, when you order a soda, be aware that you are ordering by the can and that can is going to be around $5.75. Ridiculous.
The food we did order was only so-so. I ordered the spicy beef salad and the beef was pretty tough. My bf ordered the fish tacos and they were good. His mom ordered salmon and that was fine. Another person in my party ordered the Korean beef, but it had too much fat. So my guess is if you choose to come here, go with the fish.
The average meal price is probably close to $25. For that price I expect quality service. I should have taken a hint when this restaurant was one of the few on South Beach that was not packed with people.

First of all we went here because we thought we were going to have the same experience that we had at Maya. But we were surprised negatively. First the prices were substantially higher than in Maya's (for example a soda was $6 while in Maya was $3 with no logical explanation). Also the same food had different prices. Also our waiter didn't speak a word of Spanish giving that we were in a latino environment. Neither of the beverages had price at the menu so the surprise was doubled at the time of checking out

The food is just so-so and and they overcharge you in every way. More than the menu price and also they have drinks not listed and then charge you $20 - $30 for a small margarita. Avoid at all costs.

We were charged more than the menu price on a 3 items out of 5!!!

Too many restrictions for coupon dining- Drinks were $30- Happy Hour specials $5 drinks don't apply for coupon diners- So we ate and drank water- Went for drinks else where -after-

Churrasco steak very tough and vastly overpriced. When bill came, charged $2 more than the menu price; we had to correct. Also deducted 25 cents, not 25 dollars for .com certificate. Had to correct. Although on menu, did not have available the lower priced items, pork chunks Cuban style and ropa vieja, so sort of bait and switch. Otherwise, pleasant visit.

Excellent meal but we were very disappointed that we were not told the tip was included. We added an additional 20% tip on a $300 tip and was furious when we discovered they had already charged 18% gratuity without advising us.

Steak sandwich was flavorless, steak salad was not dressed and Caesar salad was under dressed. Food also took very long to come out. thought it was over priced for the quality. Wouldn't allow us to get happy hour piña colada and sent a $30 one which was too big and just ok. Wouldn't recommend or return.

The calamari was good. My Argentinian chorizo was good, but my friend's steak was almost inedible. While they did have specials the regular prices were a little high for the quality

the service and the food was great!
10/22/2012 4:55:23 AM
Drinks were awful, food was mediocre -the drinks at the clevelander or wet willies's are way better. The skirt steak was well prepared and tasty. The chicken dish was just okay.
