Unfortunately we were really disappointed with our Pinch Burgers today. In the past (about a year ago) I told people they were the best burgers in Miami. Not so much anymore 😰 I thought maybe it was me but my husband looked me and said “the meat quality is terrible, right?”. It was. Tough and fatty pieces stuck in our teeth. Not sure if it was a bad day or if they’ve gone with a cheaper cut of meat. My husbands was cooked Med rare and mine was medium as requested. The aioli is good but it can only cover up so much. Super bummed and won’t be heading back for my former favorite burger. Server was great and attentive.

We had the best time! The food was fabulous, but the service was beyond what we expected. I found this restaurant on-line because I hate chain restaurants, and always want to enjoy local flavor. Go to this restaurant,,,if you don't you are crazy! Thank you Pinch Kitchen! Roll Tide Roll!!!

Pinch Kitchen had been on our list for a long time and we finally got around to dining there last weekend. We should not have waited so long! What a terrific restaurant. It has it all - great food, ambiance and service. I would recommend it without hesitation.

We’ve been here several times, and it’s always been good. Love the creativity of the chef. Service is above the Miami standard. The wine selection is good although it would be nice to see some more European offerings. We will be back.

We enjoy Pinch. My one complaint this time around was that the swordfish was very salty, it must have been brined. All other dishes were very good, and the service was perfect.

Reservation was ready which was great but after we served our food service completely disappeared. We understand that it was busy but we had to go up to the bar to request water and the check. We also had to take back the check so that we could expedite the process otherwise we knew we’d be there forever.

Perhaps they should have more servers around for busy days like this.

As out of towners on a weekend trip, we did our research (online and YouTube) for the best restaurants in Miami and check marked this gem as a place to dine. We are soooo happy we did. It was the best restaurant we ate at all weekend, and that's saying a lot as we also ate at another Essential 38 restaurant and spent 2x the amount of $ and did not find the food nearly as AWESOME & AMAZING as Pinch.

Everything we ordered was amazing. The kitchen sent out complimentary stuffed mushrooms that we so juicy and tasty. We had one of our fave appetizers: tuna tartare and although they mixed it with watermelon, which is unusual, it was unique, full of flavor and absolutely delicious. We both ordered the skirt steak, medium rare, and it was cooked to perfection and the best skirt steak we have ever eaten. We shared the salad which was more than enough for two. We had the Pinch Baklava. It was a bit sweet for my taste, but we ended up finishing it off as well.

Don't think you can go terribly wrong at this place. We would DEFINITELY return to this restaurant when in Miami. Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.
