Un-concerned service, lukewarm entrees 9/12/2008

We visited Oriente during the Miami Spice Month while on vacation. Maybe our expectations were too high. The greeter disregarded the fact that we told her that we'd spoken to a particular server when we made our reservation. We were hoping to at least say hello to him because he took our reservation and told us that he would more than likely be our server. He was very nice on the phone. The server that was appointed to us was un-attentive. By the time we received our appetizers, my drink was watered down and an attempt to get a fresh one took forever. We ordered the skirt steak entree and the mahi mahi entree; the steak was tough and the rice and asparagus were lukewarm. The greeter also allowed street flower vendors to walk up to our (outside) terrace table to try to sell to us (annoying). Although the fixed price was decent, the overall non-chalant attitude from the staff left us un-impressed and dissatisfied. Pros: Celebrity-owned restaurant, location, views Cons: Service, food more

Fantastic & Creative Cuban-Asian fusion 9/11/2007

We had the prix-fixe dinner with incredible duck ""sushi"" as an appetizer. My boyfriend got the skirt steak, which is stuffed with beans and rice and was absolutely wonderful. I got the pork chops which were great (though not as great as the steak). Our server was friendly and attentive and pointed out that the butter for the bread had been blended with banana. Holy moly! Pros: fantastic food, not in the center of the Ocean drive mayhem, friendly if not speedy service more

Great food. Great ambiance. 2/13/2007

Pros:\r \r + The combination of Cuban, Asian, and even Mediterranean food all together was delicious.\r + The presentation of the food was superb.\r + Everything is very clean.\r + Their restroom is very clean, which tells a lot about a restaurant.\r + Located in the ""laid-back zone"" of Ocean Drive, not the rowdy Mangos and Larios area.\r \r Cons:\r \r - Some may find this restaurant a bit pricey, but then again, you get what you pay for. Pros: Great food and ambiance. Very clean place to eat. Great for couples. Cons: A little pricey, but it is worth it. more

Amazing food!! 6/19/2006

This restaurant was really wonderful. The ambience on the porch was terrific and the people watching was great. The food overall was excellent. I had the carmelized onion encrusted mahi mahi and it was absolutely delicious. The waitress was very attentive and pleasant. Overall, this was a superior dining experience! Pros: Great ambiance. Excellent food. more

If you got the time 4/22/2006

While the food was good, but not great, the service was dismal. We were not acknowledged by our waitperson for over 15 minutes, no place settings for a for another 1/4 hour. Took 20 minutes to get our drinks *($11 each!!) at a place that was EMPTY! then another 20 for a 2nd round. Food was just as slow in arriving, but good. they might have at least made some kind of gesture to deduct a round. No manager to be found and the 'hostess' was as clueless as can be. Pros: good food, stylish Cons: service, overpriced drinks more
