  • Worst service ever. Place was dead, couldn't find our waitress, couldn't get refills, forgot our appetizer. Table.across from us same.
  • Service is sloooooow.
  • Try the "Crazy 8" lunch special, you can't go wrong!
  • Great wine selection and cocktails, always a solid menu selection of Cuban-fusion
  • Nice lunch choices
  • Ropa vieja is amazing and they have incredible sangria
  • The crepes are way too small for $10
  • Cuban egg Benedict is great!
  • For entrance ( Tapas ) -> Tostones. For entres -> Mango-ginger salmon and Pion.
  • Don't waste your money on the steak and eggs
  • The black bean burger was very good, as was the service. A tad slow, but his personality and manners made up for it. Our entire group really our meals!
  • They sold three Puerto Ricans "Puerto Rican tembleque". It was the biggest disappointment ever. Not even close.
  • Their cuban sandwich is the best. Their tostones is pretty good too.
  • A bit pricier than some other restaurants downtown but the quality of food and drinks is worth it.
  • Great service and great food. A nice twist on the traditional Cuban food. Definitely go to Emiliano's soon if you would enjoy a nice local spot.
  • house coffee w/ cinnamon is awesome! Sunday brunch
  • As native Miamian, Emiliano's definitely makes me feel at home! Love the pollo rellenos and Cuban nachos!
  • Wed night jazz
  • Happy hour is 5 to 7. It is 2 for 1 sangrias and mojitos. Great food.
