Had a romantic meal, sat outside (even though they are renovating and have scaffold everywhere). Service and seafood amazing. King crab legs to die for.

This is a quiet upscale restaurant in the heart of Miami Beach with a cool (T-wise) indoor and an outside, sidewalk patio in the midst of restaurants with sidewalk hawkers. Great meals and a good wine menu.
