If money were no object.....

The expectaion is that when you dine at a truly GREAT restaurant, ALL customers must be treated really well, and Patina does not do that. In fact they failed miserably. Three of us went for a birthday celebration, ordered their tasting menu, and experienced very shabby service. In fact, we could have just been invisible. And this was after the concert crowd had left, and they were not overrun with customers who had to be out to make the curtain. Patina is one restuarant we will never return to. When a restaurant is owned & run by a corporation it loses its personal touch.

DO NOT GO TO PATINA!!! Unless you are an "invited guest," they treat you like garbage.

We are driving from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West, and would like to stop for lunch. Does anyone have any fabulous CHOWHOUND suggestions?

What are the absolute "MUST HAVES" at Michy's to insure a GREAT dinner?

We have a gift certificate for Michy's, and have been reading lots of pros and cons. It seems as if it depends on what you order. Fellow chowhouds, I am looking to you to tell me what the "highs and lows" are.

Little Palm Island, Is It Worth the Price & Drive For Brunch?

We are staying at Hawk's Cay, and it will be a bit of a drive to the resort, but if it is an "All-Time" Foodie Experience, we will make the trip.

Best Breakfasts in Miami?

We will be there for 3 days, and need some recommendations. Too bad we will not be there over the weekend for brunch.

Restaurants in the Middle Keys near Hawks Cay

My husband & I will be at Hawks Cay for three nights at the beginning of Feb. Any suggestions for places to go for breakfast and/or dinner that do not require too long a drive?
