The Bazaar by José Andrés South Beach Ratings and Reviews
From the moment we walked in my family and friends were greeted by the pleasant smiles of two hostesses. Neither one fit the frazzled and elitist persona of the quintessential Miami “Gate Keeper.” One of the young women even wished my mother a happy birthday, obviously having had read the notes that I included in the reservation. The tone was set for the evening. Johnnie and his team were attentive, helpful, and a fount of knowledge. Our glasses were always full and our questions were always answered. The Manager stopped by the table not only once, but twice to offer more information regarding our tasting menu selections. The tasting menu was simply delightful, from the two caviar dishes, to the pork belly. Everything was unique and unlike anything any of us have ever had. The only downside was the ambience, or lack there of. Unfortunately the restaurant is juxtaposed right smack dab in the middle of the walk way of all the “Day Party” goers who were for the most part stumbling inside and past the tables of a more sober and sophisticated dining crowd.
I don’t usually write reviews, though this is warranted. This dining experience truly missed the mark.
To make this brief, we decided as a table to partake in the Tasting menu. We were brought out the first amuse & was wonderful. Then immediately three more courses all at the same time. We felt rushed and didn’t really get to enjoy the food. All of us at the table are professional chefs at other establishments around the country, thus we always have questions on the specifics of different items on the plate. The waitstaff struggled to describe the dishes, nor had a clue about the location of the oysters we were served, (they were gritty) or several other questions. A restaurant of this caliber should have their waitstaff more up to speed on the food they are serving. Several of the courses were extremely underwhelming, with sloppy plating to not properly seasoned. I hate to use the word bland, though the ceviche and the coffee ground rubbed steak at the end were indeed. When the bill for a 4 top is just under 1000 without the tip, it should be an excellent meal. We will not be returning. No dish on this menu made me went to order it again.
This is a top notch, fun restaurant. There's plenty of variety on the menu, so it suits all tastes. The chef is a mad scientist, and the food is excellent. Service is knowledge and help - not stuffy. I highly recommend this place, but it is pricey. It's worth it, though.
I wanted to like this; I'm a fan of José Andrés & his cuisine. Sadly, I will not return.
I'm ok with expensive meals, and happy to pay a high price if the food & experience merits it. But if it's expensive but not incredible, it simply takes away from the fun.
The (latter) was the case here. On the plus side, the food is generally pretty creative and tasty, and lives up to the chef's general level. We had 7 plates, and all were very good.
1) The Japanese Taco is fun. But it irritates me when a plate has three of an item. It's awkward to share when you're in a party of 2 or 4. Chefs: Make plates of 4. The incremental food cost is not as high as the reputational cost you pay by serving 3.
2) The Embutitos Platter is a spanish charcuterie platter, and was very average. I expected MUCH more; Spain has an incredible variety of cured meats. The iberico ham was good (not great), but the other two items could have come from packages at a grocery.
3) The Kueh Pai Ti were nice little packets of shrimp, peanuts and chili sauce. These were not the most creative item, but they were a good opening course.
4) The Ferrán Adriá Modern and Traditional Olive is fun. Classic Andrés dish, since it contrasts a liquid green olive with the real thing. The tastes are complementary & good.
BUT, the restaurant is using the (sadly) method of the moment - making you buy a lot of expensive small plates, and skewing the wine list towards wines over $100. In the end, we had a fine, but not amazing meal that cost $350 for two people, with a bottle of wine from the lower end of the list ($130). And it just wasn't that class of meal.
Compare it to Stubborn Seed at the other end of Miami Beach (1st & Washington). An $85/person fixed-fare, 9-course meal of incredible food, with a good bottle of wine for $80. Total bill well under $300 for a MUCH better meal.
All-in-all, The Bazaar ruins the experience with a too-high price for good, but not great food / experience.
Our group of 8 recently dined here on a Friday night and we were not disappointed. With several out of towners in our group, the staff was able to accommodate everyones needs and wishes. Great food and presentation. Fantastic wine choice by the sommelier. Even with so many dishes ordered, the flow was seamless all night long. Pricing is not for the faint of heart, but I think most people know that going in. Great service, cool setting , and lots of eye candy make for a fun evening out on SoBe!
Went for Miami Spice. Edgar our host was a wonderful guide. His suggestions were spot on. His understudies moved with ease. The Tatel crew should come here for dinner to learn how to make attentive service unintrusive. There was more than enough food with the combination of creativity & yummy on display that I have come to expect from any Andres restaurant. I prefered the menu a little and the dining venue more than a little better at Bar Mar on Brickell. A couple quibles with the Miami Beach restaurant - we were seated in the ante-restaurant. They called it the private area, but it was not as nice as the main dining room and was warm, I think because it's beside the main entrance to the hotel and the doors were open to the swealtering Florida heat regularly. They should have been able to seat us in the main restaurant since the reservation was made more than a month prior to arrival. Also, $25 valet parking for just dinner is a bit much.
Wow! Very different food experience, definitely worth trying. Others had told us not to go there hungry, because the portions are small, but, we left very satiated. Lots of young people dining there, & lots of "eye candy" walking through restaurant to outside bar & pool deck. Would definitely return next year, just not an everyday type of restaurant for me.
Jose Andres is one of our favorite restaurant people on the planet, and The Bazaar is another fine jewel in his crown. There are lots of happy surprises with the preparations and flavors here...the clams, the coffee-rubbed beef, the foie gras in a cup, the tsu mai topped with gold leaf, the wild mushroom soup, etc. and so on. . . the hits just keep coming, and we are happier people because of this. Plus, the wine list is focused and straight-forward, and the staff are spot-on--though maybe a little too eager to grab things off of our table while we are enjoying a bite--slow down fellas and help us savor each bite...no need to rush. If you get Johnny Rosado as your waiter, you will be on course for a fabulous experience. Enjoy!
What a wonderful experience my girl friends and I had while dining at the Bazaar. The food was to die for and the service was impeccable. Joshua took wonderful care of us. We told him "pick your favorite dishes and bring us those" and he did not disappoint. FABULOUS. An abosolute must if you are visiting Miami and don't mind spending a good amount of cash for an all around wonderful evening.
This is an exceptional Tapas Restaurant.
Not only does did our waiter Nelson explained all the menu to the last detail but as the food is brought to the table the serves gives you a review of what you order and how to eat it.
We share like 7 different Tapas. New version of a Spaniard potato omelette in liquid form - delicious,
Ham croquettes, fried yuca with a peanut butter topping (sounds strange but very good), shrimp in a very spicy sauce, Japanese taco, Singapore street food, and the very best was the black paella. This is made with the squid ink, topped with shrimp and aioli. Instead of using rice Chef Andre's version is made with angel hair pasta - magnificent!
Service was great! The food was superb, each dish was so different and the flavors were incredible. Our waiter, Marty, was very good and gave us great suggestions. We were a party of 6 and all got the Miami Spice, plus the Black Paella. The portions were good ,since we all shared our dishes. With the Miami Spice we each got our own snack and dessert, and the table got to choose 18 tapas so there was more than enough food.
The only negative is that big parties are sat by the hall and there is pool traffic the entire time, so its a little annoying, but overall we enjoyed it very much.
