Bad food at a high price... – "Chef" Romeo Majana (no comment on whether he is a true chef, or if he is an Italian) told us that there was no menu (a good idea to sell to customers all that is old) and was going to cook for us 6 courses $ 90.00(drinks not included)
In each food course there was nothing that has not cooked for myself in my home, risotto and pasta, a dinner filled with starch at a price of lobster and filet mignon.
I found the service quite good but the reason for going to a new restaurant is to try new food and they try to cover up mediocre food with good service.
Dinner for two $ 315 plus tip and tax, there is no way to return to this place.
Unique! Wonderful Food! – No set menu!!
Wonderful food and service!!
Great for a special occasion!
A little $$$$ but worth it in the end!
Good portions too!!
Assault at gun point! – I went to this restaurant for dinner with my wife.
Everything went ok until the chef appear at the table and told us there was no menus and he was going to cook for us 6 courses for $90.00 plus drinks. wow! We didnt live and deciced ti stay thinking the food was going to be worthit. Big Mistake!
All courses where small and nothin special, small salad, four pieces of ravioli, a veal milanese, a tiny pice of fish and so....
We pay $250.00 For that money we could went to a very nice fine dinning restaurant and ate what we wanted.
What a dissapointed!! Ah! $50.00 they charche for lunch!
PESADILLA GASTRONOMICA – A mis 80 anos es el primer restaurant en mi vida, en donde no existe menu, tampoco existe una carta detallada de las viandas que pudiera ofrecer el lugar, a cambio de eso, el chef pomposamente declara que las viandas las escoge el, a su gusto pero sin informar en que consisten. De lo unico que estuve seguro es que por lo menos pagaria $90 usd por persona sin considerar el vino que pedi. Si en este momento de crisis voy a pagar esa cantidad de dinero, siendo nosotros una familia de 6,esperaria platos excelentes, como mariscos de alta calidad, cortes de carne de primera, etc, pero a cambio recibi platillos correspondientes a las de una cafeteria
El chef solo se dedico a alavar su cocina y querer sorprender a inexpertos pero cualquier persona con el minimo concocimiento de restaurantes podra saber del fraude al que sera sometida.
NUNCA VOLVERE Y NO SE DEJEN SORPRENDER
a big fraud – if you want to pay $90 usd plus tax plus service, for something you dont have any idea what you would get, this is your place. The chef is a really nice person but forget getting any lobster, crab, mignon, shrimp etc.
, instead you'll get unexpensive courses like pastas, rice, fish etc.
I really dont have any idea how this this restaurant works, the food is average and the price is as expensive as if you go to a very nice miami beach resturant, the atmosphere was ok but I didnt enjoy the dinner at all. Dont waste your time , go to georges, francesco, etc at coconut groove or coral gables, pay half of the price and choose what you like without surprises
warning: my worst gastronomic experience in miami – somedy recomended it to me, and Ieft really disapointed.
At the begginig I realized there were no menus, just a simple note where it said thar you will received 6 courses for 90 usd. The first dish was a salmon carpaccio very simple , the second dish was a very good pasta ( 4 pieces ) but the third was the worst., it was a unflavored piece of fish that I had it back to him , then the cheff romeo modified the dish for a greasy veal, without taking in consideration that I told him that I didnt eat meat.
After that I realized it was a scam I asked for the check , pay $ 270 usd and run away from there .
Highly Recommended – I have been to this restaurant a couple of times. The food has always been amazing. The ambience is great and very romantic. I would not suggest this type of place for a family outing though. It is more of a date place, the wine list is great but pricy as is everything about this place. Going for a nice night out will run you a minimum of 250.00 with a bottle of wine. Chef Romeo is gracious and explains to you the no menu situation as soon as you walk in. You then explain what you would like and the things that you dont like. The first dish is usually the Salmon Carpacchio and the desert is usually a sofflee. Unless that bothers you there is no reason to not go and enjoy the experience.
Absolutely the finest dining experience in South Florida. Every time we go, it's better and better. The food, the presentation...and the hospitality and friendliness make every time we go there a gret experience....and it really comes at a very fair and reasonable price. This is both my wife and my favorite restaurant... and we don't agree on to many things!
A very special Italian Rest. – Romeos Cafe is one of a kind rest.for us that can afford it should try it .The service was super ,the 6 course meal will leave you with a taste unequal to none ,you will be surprised to the dishes Chef Romeo prepares ,It will leave you in ah!,Chef Romeo comes to your table with the "menu"wish you select and he delivers .
Romeos is a place to take your significan other ,or to celebrate a very special occacion,I for one will return ,it made my day .
Always a fantastic experience! – We have been to Romeo's several times now, and it has become our favorite place for a romantic dinner. The atmosphere, the food and the service are impeccable. Every time, all the time. The range of dishes is very creative and imaginative...the presentation is fantasic...and simply put, we have never been disappointed. An absolutely fantastic restaurant, with an absolutely fantastic owner/chef who will do anything he can to accommodate his clientele. We could not give any place a higher recommendation!
