Sobe restaurant decisions

I will be visiting Sobe in a few weeks and have narrowed it down to a few places for dinner. Hoping to get feedback to make sure I made good decisions and that I am not missing anything.

1. Sardinia (after all the wonderful Chowhound reviews I am very excited!)
2. Altamar/Grillfish for a good casual seafood meal
3. Rosinella
4. Ago
5. Wanted to go to Joe's but just found out they will be closed....any other places in the area that are similar?

  1. Altamar over Grillfish

    Rosinella is nothing special, merely a good value on lincoln road.

    Ago is overpriced for what it offers but it is good. I would do Osteria del Teatro instead, or even Macalusos.

    There is nothing similar to Joes. It is a miami beach institution. Stone crabs are out of season anyway if you were going for that...

    I would do Talula, Prime 112 (no steak) for your 4&5 and if you want to eat somewhere inexpensive for 3. I would do something like Liberty, El Chalan or Puerto Sagua or even Davids. If you want to spend a bit more, you could do Baires which is better than Liberty.

    To sum up, if I were you I would do these 5.
    1) Sardinia
    2) Alta Mar
    3) Baires
    4) Talula
    5) Osteria - or P112 (no steak) if you don't want italian.

    I would predict that you will like 4 & 5 the best, but they are all very good places

    If you go to osteria, get the lobster pasta (get it with paperdelle). It is the best thing they serve.

      Great list and advice above! I LOVE the lobster pasta at Osteria del Teatro!!! Always have "happy meals" there no matter what I order.
