We thought it was great. Quite noisy but not unbearable. Good food. Very interesting menu and nice service. We thought the wine selection was on the pricey side.

marinated olives and fried goat cheese were delicious. favorite was the octopus. the mussels and risotto were also delicious. it was a little too loud - would suggest they do something to muffle the noise a little. service could have taken away our dirty plates faster and brought us clean plates considering we ordered so much food. other than that, great time! will go back.

Pinch has been on our list for awhile, on a whim, looking for a new local place, we went Thursday night. What a fabulous surprise! Pinch Kitchen is an unassuming small restaurant at Biscayne & 86th, parking on the side. It is charming inside, no pretense, but the food, oh the food! We went with friends and decided to try lots of starters, kick the tires, and we were just delighted with everything! The dumplings, gambas, olives, the guacamole—don’t miss the guac, the croquetas and calamar were all wonderful. One friend ordered the soup, kale, very thick, almost needed a fork to eat it, and she loved it. We ordered the steak to see if an entree held up to the starters and it certainly did, perfectly cooked!
The service matched the food, our waiter was very knowledgeable, pleasant and obviously proud to work there.
This is a restaurant frequented by locals who want terrific food in a relaxed atmosphere with good service. It is very much worth putting on your list of “don’t miss” places in Miami!

I have gone to Pinch 4 times and have never been disappointed. The food is unique and always well-prepared. My favorite is the brunch menu item, the Waff-a-repa. Go and enjoy yourself, and keep this great restaurant open and thriving.

I recommend reservations if you can. It gets busy, especially for brunch. Pinch is one of my go-to places. Enjoy!

Pinch has good food but it’s prices are a little steep for what is a neighborhood eatery, albeit one with some pretensions. Its vegetarian options are rather slim.

Amazing restaurant! The staff here are super friendly and provided helpful recommendation for dining. This spot is cozy and the seafood dishes are delicious. Great spot to enjoy a few tapas and split a bottle of wine. Ohh.. don't forget dessert! We got the flourless chocolate cake and it was heavenly.

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’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.
