Our waitress wasn't very friendly but nice enough. We requested an outdoor table and were seated at the high-top table inside. Who spends $400 to sit at a high top table? We were able to switch tables but the hostess had some serious unnecessary attitude.

Food was sooo delicious. definitely is more on the expensive side, cheapest bottle of wine was $80, but they're selling you on the ambiance as well.

20% gratuity was already added to the bill when we reveived it - that’s fair enough for a party of four who received good service from the waitress all night. However, when I presented my credit card, the waitress asked me if I wanted to add another 15-25% for her, as the 20% already added to the bill was to be shared by the whole staff. I was a little bit shocked by this, but I still chose to add another 15% simply because I didn’t know what was customary (beeing a foreign citizen) and because I did not want to loose face or risk getting shouted at. Our bill of 725$ after tax suddenly became a bill of 1000$ after tip was added - an increase of 38%! That is just outrageous. Coming from a country where waitresses and service staff are paid decently and does not rely on tip, 20% tip is pretty much already. Add another 15% to that and I start to wonder wtf is up with these guys. That makes this place waay to expensive for my taste. On the plus side though; food was great, mood and crowd was great, and the overall experience was good. But the price? Come on, I can eat a 10-dish menu in a three star michelin restaurant for that price, including full wine serving. Either you add 20% to the bill and leave it with that, or you ask for extra without it already beeing added to the bill.

I can't imagine going to Miami and not eating here. I would make as late of a reservation as possible so you can eat dinner whilst dancing whilst looking at horribly gorgeous people.

The service was horrible. It is a very snobby and stuck up place. After ordering our food our waitress came back twice to confirm what I ordered and still brought the wrong food out. Do NOT recommend very overpriced and terrible service.

Food and ambiance were great, however the service was awful. We saw our waiter maybe twice tops for a 2 hour dining experience. We spent $700+ on our bill so we expected MUCH better service. We would have spent even more if we had been asked if we needed another drink. We had to flag someone down to even get a second...
I would not go back.

Came to celebrate my sister’s 40th birthday. I had been to Baoli for Wednesday nights but not on a Saturday and had not had dinner there. Food is a bit pricey but the ambiance on the Miami scene is what you really pay for

I had read mixed reviews, so I was a bit nervous that the service would not be good or that we’d get a less than ideal table. I was pleasantly surprised and relieved that the night went pretty well. Nik was our server and he was pleasant and he brought us around of shots to finish out out the meal.

Some favorites —
Truffle mac n cheese
Truffle risotto (so creamy and delicious)
Lobster tempura
Mango Tango roll
Dessert Platter - By far the best part of the meal. Came with 3 desserts (at that time, chef chose Creme Brulee, Molton Cake, and Lemon Tart). We added the bread pudding. My girls cleaned that tray! The desserts were amazing. Came out in a gorgeous tray with fruit, decor, and a few macaroons. Was exceptional.

The manager came out and greeted us at the end of the meal too. Which was nice. Overall no real complaints and enjoyed the food, ambiance and service.

This is a place to see and be seen at South Beach. Food was decent, but the people watching is worth the price of admission. Get out your cash as 3 drinks will set you back just under $100! After a late dinner stick around for the bar to be lit on fire, and dance!

Amazing experience! I was concerned after reading some terrible reviews about the service but my experience could not have been better. We were a group of 9 girls. We showed up 15 minutes late and there was no issue when we got there. Dinner was fabulous. Everything tasted great. We weren’t rushed at all. When we finished we stayed at the bar to enjoy the energetic atmosphere and enjoyed an amazing DJ and a fun experience. Would go back again.

Tacky restaurant looking like a dirty nightclub . The girl at the door was so rude it a crazy she is allowed to work there . We said hello with a big smile and she looked at us without responding . I was stunned !!!!! I point blank told her ! We asked for a table outside and were seated in a hole inside lol. The food was great as well as the waiter . The bill was ridiculous for the experience !!!!! And the noise really painful ( other clients) the fact that they raise the music once in a while and yell was fun but honestly it s really great for tourists that want the i will treat you like s... and make u pay so much you ll think you r a vip 😂

We had a great experience at Baoli. It was a little disappointing we were only allowed two hours at the table and then asked to move to the bar area but I get it. They are a small establishment with not a lot of tables. They are a business that needs to turn the tables in order to serve as many meals each night.

Overall the food was amazing, the atmosphere was equally amazing. It does double as a club as the night goes on. So if you are not in to loud music then you may consider booking an early reservation.
