Steakhouse
The Amalfi Llama reimagines the culinary landscape by seamlessly merging the allure of a rustic live-fire steakhouse with the flavors of Italian cuisine, a culinary haven where genuine cooking, down-to-earth cuisine and stylish flair intertwine. Guests embark on a journey from Southern Patagonia to the Mediterranean coast of Italy as they indulge in a multisensory experience that transcends boundaries – from the soothing cream decor to the intimate ambiance of crackling embers accompanied by the melodies of vintage Italian vinyls. Embracing the essence of a modern farmhouse, The Amalfi Llama revolves around an open parrilla grill and wood-burning oven, harnessing fire, smoke, coals and embers to craft dishes. The restaurant’s ethos also meets design with Latin American and Mediterranean influences, resulting in an inviting environment adorned with light woods, natural light and subtly elegant finishes, defying traditional steakhouse and Italian restaurant conventions.

    We came shortly after they had opened, and it was dor. However, this time everything was perfect. The attention was excellent, the drinks were spot on, and the filet mignon, and the salmon and the salads and the pastry were superb. We will be back and highly recommend.

    Nice atmosphere, spacious and well located restaurant. However, pricy with average service. The salads, tuna tartare and wood grilled chicken was very good. The prime NY strip was tough and not the best. Since it's a fairly new restaurant perhaps they are still getting their bearings together.

    I had a great experience during the Mother's Day Weekend Holiday. As the restaurant is on a larger scale, the service staff needs more support running the food orders. Overall, I give it 9/10. I will return to experience it with friends and family.

    Pretty room…floor is greasy and slippery…not good for a fine dining restaurant. Drinks took over 20 mins…waiter rushing us to order and when he said it will take 20-30 mins to order pasta or main course…it ticked me off and stopped ordering…slow service too many waiters not enough chefs in kitchen I guess… Service charge included so be careful since it’s not mentioned until you realize additional tip suggestion. Overall average at best…not sure this place can survive if they don’t improve service to be professional and match menu prices and not order takers and speed up food and drink orders. Menu is limited with food selection…plastic cover menus 😬 Good luck

    It was beautiful to sit in the outside dining area. The appetizers we ordered were so delicious! Everything is fresh from the wood-oven, so the Scottish salmon was just fabulous! Our server Elchin was so friendly and attentive. We got the chocolate and vanilla gelato and it truly was the best chocolate gelato I have ever had. We really enjoyed our meal at Amalfi Llama and will definitely be going again with family and friends!

    Food was very good but the service was horrible. Took forever to get menus and our first drink ordered. Empty finished plates stood in front of our face for 20 minutes without being cleared. On top of that they tack on a 20% tip for a party of 2, so no incentive to work hard.

    Melissa did an outstanding job serving us! Her recommendations did not disappoint! My husband ordered the NY Strip and he said it was outstanding! My husband normally orders his steaks medium rare, Melissa told him that the streaks come out on a sizzling plate, he decided to order it rare. The plate did not come out sizzling but the steak was cooked to perfection! They have a bread that is served with an egg plant purée that is amazingly fabulous!!

    $58 NY Strip was overcooked and the flavor was just meh. $4 extra for stream sauce. The place looks great, and seems like it could be fun, but I expect a lot more quality for those prices.

    It’s a beautiful restaurant. There’s a dining area when you first walk in with the bar then you go to the main dining room with a big bar. There’s a see-through kitchen after the main dining room is a outside dining area, which is lovely. I think there should be more choices of appetizers and main courses on the menu. My party ordered a piece first which was very thin but just OK. The Caesar salad was very good but the lobster in the pasta dish was not very much lobster and the sauce wasn’t that flavorful. Not sure if I would go back because of the choices on the menu. Sorry to say this.

    We had a wonderful dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday. Our waiter, Antonio, was wonderful. He was helpful, offering many suggestions and did not rush us. He was charming and we felt very pampered. We shared everything so we all got to taste different dishes. The two desserts we shared were terrific and described perfectly by Antonio. The restaurant is large and quite attractive.. It was a beautfiful night so we sat outside. We are leaving Florida for the summer but we will definitly be back!

    Nestled in Miami's Aventura area, The Amalfi Llama exudes Italian charm and elegance. Upon entering, you're greeted by an ambiance that effortlessly blends warmth and sophistication, setting the stage for a memorable dining experience. The service is commendable, with attentive staff dedicated to ensuring every moment at your table is nothing short of extraordinary. While the cuisine may not boast complete authenticity, each dish is meticulously prepared, offering a satisfying culinary journey, particularly ideal for the mall area. Well crafted cocktails!

    It's one of my favorite and newest places in Aventura's Esplanade! Right within the Aventura Mall campus grounds, so to speak, it is not inside the Mall. It is beautiful with great indoor and outdoor areas, a separate bar lounge area as well as an outdoor bar! The food is delicious and their service is excellent! The staff is welcoming and well trained. Our server, Julian, was outstanding and super sweet! If you want to see the chefs at work, the booths in front of the open kitchen are a treat! Not a very extensive Menu, but everything we've tried has been really good! You can have steaks, fish, pasta, pizza, etc! Great wine and cocktail list too! A must try!!
