Decent food, a bit overpriced. The worst service, we saw the waiter only a few times. They crammed us two next to a large group on the same couch - what should have been just one table, they made into two. Probably won't go back.

A disappointing meal. We were sat on the 2nd floor terrace which had poor ambience vs. the rest of the restaurant despite tables not being filled all evening else where. The service was poor, it was slow with bad communication between staff. The meat was very fatty and the noodles were greasy. It was an expensive meal and my lasting memory is the food poisoning my friend and I suffered consequently. The salmon tacos were nice though. I wouldnt recommend it.

Went to Komodos to celebrate Valentine's Day over the weekend. We were late by an hour or so, but they still honored our reservation. The food was amazing! We had the Lobster Dynamite, Lamb Spareribs, and Prawn Dumplings as appetizers. The Lobster Dynamite and the Prawn Dumplings were perfert; however, the Lamb Spareribs left us wanting. They were mostly fat. For the main course, we had the Chilean Seabass and the Wild Mushroom Lo Mein. We accompanied them with the Charred Brussel Sprouts and the Wokked Bok Choy. It was plenty of food (a bit too much actually), but it was all perfect. We didn't try any of their desserts though. The service was incredible. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable of all drinks and plates. Had a great time overall.

Second time here and the duck is still outstanding; service was also very good.

The place of very nice and the food was good but way over priced. I love to go to nice places and to spend in good restaurants.

Was a little annoyed even having a appointment they had me waiting 15-20 minutes . My servor was amazing was on point with our order and was very attentive . We had a bad experience with our food we had the lobster and the duck rice and our food was cold it felt like the cook had it out for hours and just reheated it . We spoke with our waiter and she got us fresh meal. I felt like the manager should of came and apologize for the issue since the meal wasn't a 10 dollar meal . But other than that it was a beautiful place but I wouldn't recommend it at all .

After celebrating my friend's birthday, I didn't expect to be throwing up all night from the food that I ate here on Friday. \n\nI sent an email to the restaurant to alert them about the situation. I wasn't even going to bother, but my friends urged me to, so at least they could take a look into it so other people don't get sick (or as further evidence that they have food contamination on their hands in case other people have also alerted them). \n\nThis was Saturday and I haven't received a response. \n\nThe food, ambience, music and service were all good. The staff was really friendly. But the lack of attention to something this serious overshadows it all for me, so I will definitely not be recommending this restaurant, not patronizing in the future.

This was my second time eating at Komodo and I found that the food, service and atmosphere were exceptional. I do not particularly eat Asian fusion food, but the preparation of the meals I had during both visits have been very delightful. The three course lunch special was also a nice feature. Note that I brought along my boss who, like me, does not eat Asian fusion food and he was also delighted with the food and restaurant. Thank you.

we had ordered a couple of starters while trying to decide on which main to order, but did not realize the starter portions were so generous. We ended up just ordering a few other starters as we were then too full to eat a whole main. Each starter was delicious. The lamb ribs were so tender and loved the crispy quinoa under the dynamite lobster. The Secret Garden cocktail was so nice I had to have 2. Would highly recommend this place to friends and family for a unique dining experience

Had dinner at Komodo last Sunday night while on holiday in Miami. We were staying in South Beach, so it was a bit of a hike to get all the way downtown (30 minute cab ride), but it was DEFINITELY worth it. Nice atmosphere, prompt service, exceptional food. It is a bit on the pricey side, but you definitely get what you pay for. I have already recommended Komodo to friends, and will definitely go back the next time I visit Miami.

To simply say this place is terrific does it an injustice. Absolutely everything was as good as it gets right down to the parking. But, this is not a place for everyone. If large portions of comfort food is what is wanted, this is definitely the wrong place. If you liked and know/knew China Grille, then you are on the right track. I think Komodo is even a step above.\n\nThe best way to attack this menu is to rely on the excellent wait staff and plan to do a lot of sharing. Here is what we had, in order of appearance, and we loved every bite: Lobster Dynamite, Lamb Spareribs, Peking Deck, and Nutty Bar and coffee for dessert. Oh, and they had excellent choices of wines which added to our delight.\n\nFrom the not typical decor to the food to the service - every facet of our dinner was top notch. It's a bit of a ride for us from Boca, and up to now only Joe's Stone Crabs and Ola would justify the ride. Now there are three.

Wow! From the moment you entered the restaurant you were bowled over by the over-sized architectural accents and multi level space. The menu's unique meld of traditional Asian cuisine with modern unexpected Latin and Caribbean spices were clever in both presentation and pairings. We dined during Miami Spice and were treated to a sampling of the culinary Komodo menu delights. From appetizer to main course, all dishes were amazing. The dessert portion of the meal, however, left us disappointed. Although the choices sounded inviting, the selection of pureed iced concoctions were neither spectacular nor memorable.

Great food and service. My daughters were intrigued by the 'birds nest' seating area. It turns out that they only open it on weekends (we were there on a Tuesday night). But rather than treat us like an imposition, they showed us the area and were even willing to let us sit there. Not inexpensive (eg. $18 for 6 dumplings) but if you're ok with the cost, it was an excellent restaurant.

Poor service...i guess when a service charge is included the dinning experience changes. When seated had to ask for water, also wanted to order drinks and a bottle of wine server took 15mins to greet the table after walking by 3 times.(never got his name) I would love to give a great review but for the expected quality Komodo fell short. Maybe for happy hour i would suggest a quick bit and a few cocktails at the bar but for supreme service go elsewhere.

Every dish we ordered had a heave sweet sauce on it. The food was not clean, meaning the preparation had more emphasis on the sauce (sugar to be addicting) than the natural flavors of what you were eating. \nThis restaurant is not for foodies, but more of a business lunch environment.

We went for my daughter's birthday. Have been there before. The food is great. The complaint: the waiter. He was incredibly pushy. From the very beginning...my husband asked for a recommendation of Saki and the first bottle he suggested was $195. Gave attitude when my husband said he didn't want to spend that much. Then when we ordered food: he kept pushing the $150 steak special. We told him we weren't interested and still he suggested it 3 or 4 times! We finally gave our order and he kept insisting it wasn't enough food even though, again, we told him we weren't big eaters. We had ordered salmon - he didn't think it was available - suggested Branzino - that's fine, but I told him at least 3 or 4 times I didn't like it! Dessert: my daughter (the birthday girl) ordered a scoop Thai ice cream. He brought out some kind of key lime baked Alaska, stating he thought this would be better! Ridiculous!! When he brought the check, my husband said he would prefer to pay the tip in cash. Argued with my husband, saying probably can't do that! Of course, my husband told him, you can and you will! Btw, the tip was taxed which is unheard of. Again, food and atmosphere great. Waiter not so good! Really just wouldn't listen to us! Put a real damper on our night.

I decided to have my birthday dinner at Komodo because I had been hearing wonderful things about the restaurant. They didn't let me down at all. The service was top notch and our waiter was very attentive and helpful but not too present. He made great suggestions regarding food options. \n\nThe restaurant seems a bit cavernous (it's two floors with bar seating and outdoor seating) and it's very loud. It was difficult to hear the waiter tell us the menu at times. \n\nThe food was great but the portions are SMALL. There were 4 of us at the table and we ordered 3 appetizers, 1 side, and the Duck and I had a dessert that had bananas in it (I was the birthday boy after all). It seemed barely sufficient for me but everyone else seemed satisfied. In retrospect, we should've ordered at least one more appetizer and another side dish. We ordered a bottle of wine and two of us had AMAZING cocktails.\n\nThis place ain't cheap (my party spent $400 total) but if it's a special occasion and you feel like splurging a little bit I highly recommend that you give this place a try for the ambiance, the uniqueness of the food, and its taste!

Much ado about nothing as Shakespeare would have titled this review. Supposed trendy restaurant with glacial atmosphere . As for the food, it does not hold a candle to similar places such as Zuma or Coya next door. \nTasteless , limpless dumplings and the dynamite crab was certainly not explosive.

We were seated 40 minutes after or reservation and the table was by the back door fire alarm. One person had no view of the dining floor and the other was often looking at the back pockets of the neighbouring server, who was wedged so tightly between the tables that his rear came in physical contact with the rim of my drinking glass several times (>5). The Komodo Chicken Salad was my favorite dish, which is disappointing because we also ordered the Wagyu Beef. The Chilean Sea Bass was delicious but a tad meager portion size; perhaps we should've gone with the entree. The server had far too many opinions and didn't make much effort to solicit preferences from us. I live in the neighborhood and would love to make this my special occasion spot, but I'm unlikely to return unless just to hang out at the bar.

We ordered a lot of plates , around 10 between appetizer and large plates . At the end they clean up our table and brought the desert menu but still have plates to serve . Call the waiter , and told her that we're missing two large plates and 3 sides dishes . After apologizing she said the Manager will come at our table , never came . A little bit disappointed considering the classe of the restaurant. The worst was to be seated on a 4 places table. Ridiculous. Could not move the arms .

There are many people working so there is always someone available if you need something. \n\nAmbiance: It is gorgeous in there! One of my favorite date seatings ever and also great for groups. It is recommended to request a table on the 1st floor or outside for the great date seating I'm describing. \n\nPrice: It's definitely expensive, but you're paying for the ambiance.

Come for the 'scene' and BOY is it a scene. Miami's swankiest gals and guys dressed in the latest designer sneakers and biggest Hublots crowd the downstairs bar to the sounds of Komodo's pumping electronic soundtrack. In many ways, Komodo embodies the essence of a foreigner's perception of Miami--the pulsing sexy hub of the young, rich and famous. \n\nI thoroughly enjoyed the beef jerky, tangy seared beef strips with a slight kick. While the sauce was a bit cloying in consistency, the flavor was very nice, exhibiting the restaurant's fusion-centric approach to its Asian cuisine.\n\nWhile the food is good, like so many of Miami's 'hot new restaurants,' it fails to convey the authentic flair and genuine passion associated with the traditional roots of the city. It is a slice of South Beach plopped down in Brickell. Go for a drink and the atmosphere. Count the Hublots. Then, head to 8th Street and experience the cultural richness of this misunderstood city.

Service was pushy and unorganized. \nI have a couple of F&B places here in Miami and love touring the city for its great offerings.\nI actually never complain about anything but since I got this email I thought might as well, since I also welcome constructive feedback as well as good feedback. \nKomodo has been high on my list for a long time. Unfortunately disappointing - probably just an unlucky evening on my end. \nWent to Alter the day after - amazing! Went to KYU yesterday - Absolutely amazing!

Came for dinner during Miami Spice event. The set menu was $39 per person plus extra for premium appetizer and main course. We ordered one of the signature drinks, but were disappointed, as the drink was too spicy. The waiter noticed that we did not drink it and offered a different drink. The drinks looked really pretty, but in the future, I'll stick to more traditional cocktails. We ordered a Comodo chicken salad and a lobster dynamite (+$6) for appetizers. The salad was delicious, but a bit heavy on the dressing. The Lobster dynamite was, well, dynamite! Nice presentation. For the main course we had a lime chicken and a grilled szechuan beef ($9 supplement). Both dished were, again, delicious and very nicely presented. For desert, we ordered the Zen garden and the Bananas in a pagoda. Beautiful presentation, full of flavour, a perfect end to a nice meal. The outside terrace was beautifully appointed, with 'nests' for private parties and fans to keep one cool on a hot summer evening.

This was my first time to the Restaurant and it was the first week of Miami Spice. My date and I arrived to our reservation and were greated by two lovely ladies at the door. We were taken to our seat which was right in the middle of the dinning room, which felt a bit odd since I felft like we were on display. We were greeted by out server promptly and ordered a few drinks. We then discussed with him that we were interested in doing Spice. He seemed happy with our choice and even tried to sell us some additional side items. I was very pleasantly pleased with all items on the spice menu They had lots of flavor and were delishishhhh. My only concern with that dining experience was that our server never checked back with us, through out our three course meal. He did come over to see if we needed more drinks but never asked how our meal was. In conclusion, I am a local plus in the (biz) and all I can say is, you never know who is at your table and how they are going to tip. Even though Service is included at this place, I still left an additional cash tip. \n\nLocal

I went to Komodo for a dinner date with my husband before leaving town and a friend of mine recommended it to me so we gave it a try.\nBooked a table for 9.30pm on a wednesday night and the male host was quite rude, no hello, no smile and he told us if we wanted a table outside we would have to wait 45 minutes, ok fine let's have a drink first and walk outside, they were at least 4 empty tables outside and when we questioned again the other host 30 minutes later she gave us one of the table which has been empty all the time, very annoying but clearly we were not Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Apart this initial hiccup the service was great, our waiter Louis was very friendly and had a great knowledge of the menu and wine list.

From the photos, I expected a more 'chic' Miami experience. The decor is nice, but too brightly lit to be a real Miami hot spot. The staff is fabulous - no complaints about service. The food was just okay. Had the lobster, the long beans, and several appetizers. Great cocktails and the DJ was a fun touch. I just wish the food had been a little better. And I believe that dimming the lights slightly would make a world of difference. I'm glad I got to experience it, but won't be running back.

Great for a Girl's night out! We shared a bunch of small plates including dessert. The food was delicious, and our waiter made sure we didn't order anything he believed to be sub-par. The cocktails were all made perfectly too. We expected to pay a premium so we knew what we were in for when the bill came. To be honest, it wasn't all that unreasonable. Definitely recommend!

This was my second time dining at Komodo and I must say it just gets better. My first experience was nice, but this time it was Excellent. My server Philipe was the best. We asked for modifications to drinks on the menu and the bartender went above and beyond and set the standard for the best drinks award. The watermelon martini (we asked for it, not on the menu) was stellar. The food was amazing! The baked crab and Sea bass skewers and the calamari salad we my favorites. The banana box for dessert topped everything off nicely. We sat outside which was beautiful. The DJ is great. Both times I could've stayed all night just enjoying the music. BTW- if you loved China Grill, you will love Komodo, much of the same menu items. Must go to location.

Hi! Overall it had a wonderful experience at Komodo. The only thing that I would suggest is to have an organized way for getting people seated. They say that they will find you, mind you the hostess finding us had never seen us before so she was wondering all over the restaurant until we stopped her and asked her who is she was looking for and yes it was us. Need to have a better way. Get the person's number and text them when table is ready or something like that. Other than that I would recommend.

After reading rave reviews about Komodo, we were excited to go on our first night in Miami. The decor is sleek and the atmosphere is lively. We sat in the main dining room, but the outdoor garden area looked fun as well. The food, however, is tired and passe: if you have eaten at Tao or China Grill in New York City, you know exactly what you'll be getting at Komodo. The service was also rushed, as if the waitstaff had been instructed to turn over tables quickly: our server asked for our dinner order twice before our cocktails even arrived. Perhaps the recipe for this restaurant is new for Miami, but very been there/done that for other cities.

The ambiance is fantastic. The interior design is romantic and beautiful. The food is very good. Every dish was delicious minus the calamari. The sauce was disappointing, consisting of smoked paprika with other ingredients in oil and tasted grainy. The highlight of the evening was the desert. We tried them all and were blow away! They were visually enticing and superior taste. The service was very good. The only reason why I have a 4/5 is because they were extremely busy and as a result we waited long periods of time to see our waiter. This is a great restaurant to visit.

Komodo is a fabulous addition to the Brickell neighborhood. It is a South Beach hotspot nestled into the Brickell financial district. Ambience and service were top notch. Food was delicious albeit a little pricey. Definitely not an every day restaurant but a worthwhile date, group, special occasion or night out on the town restaurant. Be sure to get the lobster dynamite and duck lettuce wraps. Both delectable. Our favorite however was the garlic crab noodles. Succulent juicy pieces of crab. The hacked chicken was also good and tender with a flavorful sauce. For dessert the banana pagoda was amazing. We will definitely return. Looking forward to sitting in one of the bird nests

Wasn't super impressed or happy going to this place. It took an hour to get seated even though we had a reservation and showed up on time. Spent $40 on 2 sub-par drinks at the bar while we waited to thumping club music (guess that's to be expected in Miami). Food was just ok, nothing special. What I will say is that our waiter was great and very on top of things, so A+ for service! I also don't like that 18% gratuity is already included on your bill. Not worth the money.

Overall the food was decent but they made me wait 1 hour for the table, despite the fact that I had a reservation. It is very disrespectful to make a customer wait for so long. Moreover I place a reservation for a table for 3 outside, in the garden, and they offered me a table inside, of the size of a napkin... When I complained that I repeatedly asked to be seated outside, they replayed that there was another 20 minutes to wait for that option.\nAfter this start, you either serve extremely delicious food or you are not going to see me again.... And they are definitely not going to see me again.

By the time we sat down we where so angry that we could hardly enjoy dinner. We waited for an hour even though we had confirmed reservations. The place looked like a mix of a low end hooker bar and a very expensive pimping palace, I haven't seen so little clothes worn since I went to a topless beach by mistake. I had to fight my way in with the hostess to be finally seated as I saw her greet friends and walk them right past us. I was there with some friends from out of town and was embarrassed to leave but we really should have left. The place is beautiful but I seriously doubt I will ever go back. Did I mention overpriced. Im better off sticking to the classics... Zuma, Mr. Chow, Coya, Quality Meats, Katsuya, Prime Italian.... Better safe than sorry.

Beautiful new place with outside garden seating in the heart of Brickell but not ideal for dinner on the weekend. We had a reservation for late dinner but we still had to wait over an hour and ended up seating outside, we had great drinks at the bar but standing up for an hour was too much but quite entertaining watching the chefs in the open kitchen and the duck souschefs bathing the precooked ducks in sizzling hot oil before slicing it, quite an unusual sight on this hip side of town. Appetizers were mediocre, the skinny duck at $99 a piece was a hit and enough for 2-3 persons to share, salmon was excellent, small portion but well seasoned and well seared, the finale was a fantastic dessert shaped like a bird nest made of white chocolate and cheese cake!

We went to Komodo over the weekend, had a 9:45 reservation - did not get seated until around 10:30 which is very frustrating, especially since we were celebrating a birthday - if not for that special occasion we would have went and eaten somewhere else. Once we were actually seated, the server was very sweet and even rushed to bring out some apps for us since were starving by that point. The food was excellent, and we enjoyed every dish.

We were there on a Thursday night.. Had a drink in the bar.. Erica was great - excellent bartender. We were seated- When we were ordering we asked The waiters advice about the quantity of food- not sure he understood us. We ordered various appetizers and a duck. We received most of them - our waiter was nowhere to be found. Then the duck came .. It was very small.. I have had it before.. Portions need to be consistant. 3 out of 4 of us were drinking champagne -- we had 2 bottles which we poured for ourselves the entire night.. After a few words with the waiter he brought our missing appetizer and did comp us a dessert. The food is great but the kitchen needs some quality control and the wait staff training . We are not sure what happened with our duck ... Too many legs not enough breast .. With an 18% tip guaranteed the waiter wasn't interested. Additional we had asked to sen Erica an appetizer which we had to ask at least 2 times before it happened.

I had to wait exceptionally long for the food to arrive and they weren't that busy. Then it took them 20min to bring the desert and an extra 20min to bring the check! When I asked what is going on with the desert I was given the following answer 'the table next to you had 3 of those'. I don't understand why one has anything to do with the other especially since what we ordered was not made by order. Anyhow - I guess since everyone is also paying their bill we had to wait the extra 20 min for the check too. On the other hand food was good!

The restaurant itself had a NYC vibe such as Tao and other competitors. The ambiance was great, food was great. Biggest downfall for me was service. The waiter, although friendly, took forever to come back to the table to check on our party. Whether it was to bring food/ drinks, or simply check if we needed something he simply took too long. The table was left messy, appetizer plates were never changed to a clean set neither were utensils. The table by dessert was a dirty mess. We would of appreciated someone cleaning the food that fell on the table (that inevitably happens while eating finger foods and sushi and sharing with everyone) \nI would go again considering the food was great, and they just opened which could be the reason service wasn't up to par yet. \nLet's see next time..
