"EVERYONE in our group LOVED the ambiance, the service, but most importantly,-- THE FOOD at Mama Mia's. The food is DELICIOUS , with many choices for people who are EVEN watching their weight. Their salads and fish dishes are a wonderful way to dine,-- HEALTHFULLY. We all had different choices for our entrees,-- and EACH and EVERY choice was satisfying and served in a HUGE portion. We all took home "doggie bags" for another meal. The bread served on the table is fabulous. Try one of their tasty soups. I love their lobster bisque served in a "tureen" of BREAD. My friends had their pasta fagioli --which was great. Our main courses were accompanied by sides of delicious pasta. It was a UNANIMOUS decision that dinner was EXCEPTIONAL."

"My waiter, Joey, always helps to make my dining experience at Mama Mia's very enjoyable. He is very accommodating, attentive and gracious. His service coupled, with the wide choices of delicious food, makes Mama Mia's a Gr8 place for lunch and/or dinner. The prices at Mama's are very reasonable, and the portions are always so BIG. This restaurant is a WINNER!"

Timo’s at the Villa Mayfair is Coconut Grove’s ultimate dining destination – a beautiful and comfortable spot where guests can enjoy a quick bite, a relaxing drink or a delicious three-course dinner. A modern restaurant that serves a variety of dishes from tuna tartar in a soy-lime sauce, braised beef short ribs to an organic farm-raised chicken with root vegetables. The menu is an approach to modern American comfort food with European and Latin inspiration. With its warm and friendly staff and its globally inspired menu that offers something for everyone, Timo’s at the Villa Mayfair is a place you’ll want to come back to again and again.

"My brother and I had a wonderful lunch at Timo's. This restaurant is located near the Mayfair Hotel,--- in Coconut Grove. The food was SUPERB. The service of our waitress, Heidi, was SPECTACULAR. The décor created an elegant and serene ambiance. The piped-in music enhanced the whole dining experience. This is the place to go for lunch and/or dinner. It is a GEM!!!"

"Tonite was the FOURTH time I dined at Dapur, in LESS than two weeks. The food is UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS. The service is EXCELLENT. Ryan, Ashley and Natasha (my favorite members of the wait staff) are ALWAYS so ACCOMODATING and ATTENTIVE! The EXQUISITE food, along with the décor, creates a feeling of serenity and relaxation. Tonite, there was an event in the bar, that was "ROCKING" with young, beautiful professionals. Dapur is the perfect place for any important event or party. The small plates and the superb menu of drinks, makes Dapur THE PLACE for people to meet and greet and EAT! Edi, the owner, is ALWAYS attentive to ALL his guests. Dapur is ADDICTIVE!! I eat there at least twice a week, and EACH time is WONDERFUL!"

"I had lunch today at Timo's. The décor is serene, elegant and a wonderful setting, for a delicious lunch and/or dinner. I was greeted by Olaf, their friendly and gracious manager. My waitress, Roxana, was SUPERB. She was attention and eager to please. I had the Greek Salad and the Turkey Club. They were both OUTSTANDING. The coffee served,-- is very flavorful and delicious. When I accidentally spilled my coffee-- Roxana, my waitress, and Erick the bus boy, cleaned up MY MESS in a few moments, and were both very gracious, in that process. Timo's is a GEM of a restaurant. I am going back with my brother next week---because it is THAT EXCELLENT. It is set in the Mayfair Hotel in Coconut Grove, and is TRULY a first class restaurant!"

"This was our second visit to Magiano's this week,. And, , both times it was a GREAT dining experience. The food is Excellent, the portions are HUGE and the prices are reasonable. Our waiter tonite, was Andrew. He was very accommodating and his noteworthy service ENHANCED our experience. We live 35 mileseaxch way,---from Maggiano's. But, the trip is worth it!! It was very BUSY tonite. So, it seems that the Boca crowd appreciates the fine food and the reasonable prices too. We will be back with friends SOON."

"I took my friend to Mama Mia's for her FIRST visit. She loved the food, the ambiance, the service and the prices. We used a charitydine DISCOUNT dining voucher, which made the prices even MORE reasonable. The portions are so HUGE-- that we BOTH took home "doggie bags." I love Mama Mia's, because I can ALWAYS count on a delicious meal, a friendly atmosphere and an extra portion to take home."

"Tonite was our third time at Dapur this week. We LOVE the food, the staff ( Ashley and Natasha), the owner ( Edi) and Juliannne, at the desk. The ambiance is serene and elegant. The portions are always BIG. The food is presented artistically. We have MANY favorites that we choose. The Bang Bang Scallops are OUT of this World. The Pan Fried Chicken Dumplings are Out of this World. The Pad Thai is Out of this World. The Kobe Sliders are Out of this World. The Brussel Sprouts are Out of this World. We ate at Dapur Twice for lunch this week, and Once for dinner. If the owner, Edi opens for BREAKFAST-- we will try that too. Dapur is OUTSTANDING and ADDICTIVE!! Dapur is the BEST Thai Asian restaurant in all of South Florida!"

"We had lunch at Maggiano's today. The Food was EXCELLENT. The service was EXCEPTIONAL. The ambiance, especially with the piped in Sinatra and Tony Bennett tunes, ENHANCED our dining experience. And, we were given an extra portion of Eggplant Parm to take home. How WONDERFUL was THAT!!! We are planning on having dinner at Maggiano's this coming Sunday. That speaks volumes about our enjoyment and appreciation of Maggiano's. The prices and portions are very AGREEABLE. You will Love Maggiano's. This restaurant is truly a GEM!"

Established in 1985, Giacomo the executive Chef from 1991 teamed with his wife Melody and acquired ownership of Primavera Restaurant with a goal of maintaining Primavera Restaurant as one of South Florida’s finest dining establishments. Giacomo creates an intriguing combination of old and new world dishes. The Northern Italian cuisine at Primavera is influenced with a style that blends the traditional dishes with a creative twist. The menu at Primavera offers a dining experience that is unique and innovative. Well described Italian dishes are supplemented daily with specialty items. Antipasto trays, homemade pastas, and desserts, combined with a very romantic and confortable setting, attentive service, and an impressive wine list are the trademarks of Primavera that keep patrons returning.

"I have dined at Primavera several times in the past few weeks. EACH time, the FOOD, the SERVICE and the AMBIANCE made our experience EXCEPTIONAL. This is a hidden gem in a very ORDINARY looking strip mall. Once inside the restaurant, the diner experiences a SHARP contrast to the outside appearance. Don't judge this "BOOK"-- by its cover. Primavera is a first class restaurant. Our waiter, Gelton, again, treated us very well. He was accommodating and friendly--which enhanced our dining experience. Primavera is a MARVELOUS restaurant, with nice sized portions, that are reasonably priced. And, we used a charitydine dining DISCOUNT voucher-- which made our dinner even MORE reasonably priced."
