Stay away from Aura Restaurant. They will lie to you to get you to dine with them - feed you sub par food and over inflate your bill! The bathrooms and kitchen are nasty...save yourself from a bad experience in South Beach.
The Best eating experience on Lincoln Road. We ate at Aura last night . It has the best Lamb Shis-Kebab I've ever had in my life. The waiter Azis was great, bringing the food promptly. We were given 2 free Mojitos as well as a meatball for our dog. What can I say about Jay, the host? He was so warm and friendly that we decided to try his restaurant, and boy were we glad. The food is great, the prices are reasonable, and they are extremely dog friendly. We've eaten at many restaurants on Lincoln Road, as we go there often, and this was by far the best experience we've had. A MUST TRY!
Excellent SoBe Restaurant. My Fav!!!.
My girlfriend and I recently went to SoBe for a weekend getaway. I have visited a few times before and I wanted her to have the full experience and having dinner on Lincoln Rd is a must.
The manager offered us 2 free cocktails with our dinner to entice us to eat there, it worked. I thought the food would be below par and mediocre but I was wrong. I HATE seafood and yet I ordered the seafood linguine and I cleaned my plate, my girlfriend had the 1/2stuffed lobster with pasta which was equally good. I was so overly impressed that I insisted we eat there again the following night. Again, the food and service was beyond excellent. I will eat here every time I visit SoBe, it's my new favorite place.
YOU HAVE TO EAT HERE WHILE IN SoBe. 5 stars don't do justice to this place. It deserves 10 :)
Chic hot-spot, fashionable crowd, and super service by a great looking staff...
Best of all is the Food!! everyone in my party of 6 was blown away with delight !! Superbly prepared cuisine. Aura's specialty cocktails are equally tantalizing. Can anyone say Lychee Mojito ? ! ! ?
Wow! Very impressed!. We ate at several restaurants while on vacation in South Beach. I have to say this was the best food I have ever eaten. I had the seafood linguine and it was amazingly good. It was so fresh and seasoned perfectly. I don't think I have ever had pasta that good. Service was a little slow but then again we were on vacation and it was great just sitting and people watching. I want to go back to South Beach just to eat there again. 5 stars are just not enough. I give Aura a 10 :)
Eat Here!! while in South Beach!!.
My husband and i vacationed in South Beach for 5 days.
We were very impressed with the delicious cuisine at Aura.
Delicious meals with friendly and attentive staff.
For my husband; Surf Turf w/ Lobster, Shrimp, Filet Mignon. For me; seared Tuna with delicious light citrus.
Excellent Mojito cocktails !!!!
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY.
I live in south beach, therefore I have been to most of the restaurants on lincoln road and as me and my friend where shopping, we where hungry and decided to check it out. It was their specials sign that got us it said lunch specials 7.95$, and then listed them. But no they start at 7$. And they had happy hour. Well my salad came and it said goat cheese tart, but there was really a goat cheese pastry over a soup of lettuce and balsamic glaze. My meal then came which was the lobster ravioli topped with crab meat. The sauce was firm not silky and the meal did not contain crab. So I told the waitress and she said thats the way it is. And there is no one that is going to fix it for you. So I ate it because I was hungry, but it was bad. Then I get up to use the bathroom and see the manager to which I explain nicely that my meal had not been what I expected AND SHE ANSWERED THAT IS NOT MY PROBLEM IT MUST BE YOUR TASTE THAT IS F*CKED UP BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE LIKE THE RESTAURANT.
P.S. I AM A CHEF.
Great food & service!. We stayed in SoBe 1 block from Lincoln Road Mall. There are many great places to eat. We decided on Aura 1 night. Raymond was our server and was over-the-top. He genuinely cared whether we loved the food or not. For a place who entertains so many out-of-towners he made us feel very important. The manager was very friendly and passionate about their place. The location is right on the walk so you can watch all the people walk by. My wife had the Sea Bass which was incredible! I had the crusted snapper and it was also delicious. We had such a great time that we dined their again the following night! they remembered us and followed through on the same outstanding service and food. My wife had the lobster ravioli....delicious! I could not deter and had the snapper again! It was great! I highly recommend dining at Aura atleast 1 night of your stay. We will certainly return on our next vacation to Miami! Thank you so much for contributing to what was an overall outstanding trip to South Beach! Drew & Bethany
ALL HAIL THE KING!.
My favorite restaurant ! They have everything on their menu and it is all culinary excellence.
I recently went their with a party of 14. They were gracious in their service.
Each person in my goup was delighted! The food was superb.
Very reasonably priced. We had seafood, steaks, pasta, and it was made with a modern twist.
Also important to note, the restaurant has the best location in South Beach. Perfect for watching the fabulous people walk by!
This is the first and only time I have written a review of a restaurant and believe me it is well justified.
Top Choice on Lincoln Road South Beach.
The top restaurant my husband and I have eaten at since visiting South Beach for 1 week.
Sea Bas to die for!! Grilled Lamb Chops for my husband!! WOOOWWWW !!!
This place is absolutely THE BEST on Lincoln Road.
The Service at this restaurant was professional, friendly and personal.
The staff at most restaurants and hotels here in South Beach are pretentious, rude, arrogant and lack overall customer service .
But we couldn't have been more delighted with this fine restaurant.
We shared a thin-crust pizza(tomato-basil) as an appetizer and we have never tasted a pizza like that since visiting Rome.
It was perfect. Super thin, crispy, with fresh Buffalo mozzarella.
I can't say enough about how good this restaurant is,
and how mediocre all other restaurants on Lincoln Road truly are.
As with all South Beach restaurants, gratuity is already included on the bill.
However, we were so delighted with the outcome of our meals and the total experience;
we happily left our gracious waiter extra gratuity.
Aura is top-choice.
