    PERMANENTLY CLOSED, updated my review from 5 stars because people should know it is no longer open, what a bummer! excellent food, goat curry and roasted duck were delicious. seasonal local veggies from local farms, GF bread made in house, I had the brioche, it was great but it didnt make me feel good. I will stick to no grains. I am just trying to eat healthy, I am probably gluten sensitive, so I avoid all grains unless they are soaked. Great restaurant and service, but just a reminder perhaps all grains should be avoided or at least soaked if you are gluten sensitive.

    Their schedule said they will open at 4 pm. At 5.15pm we call and ask if it's gonna open at all. The guy who answerd the phone said yes, they waiting the chef and will open in 15 min. So we kill time for 20 min and go again, just to see it is still closed. I call again and the guy answers and tells me they're gonna open in 30-40 mins. Amazing. This is how you lose customers, Oolite.

    Excellent and interesting fully gluten free menu and drinks selection. Many organic and healthy yet delicious items. Loved everything I tried. Good comfort food options such as Mac and Cheese too. Great finish with Key Lime Pie.

    Absolutely incredible food our waitress was very friendly and very knowledgeable its not a 100% gluten free facility but close enough they have a few items that contain gluten but they're not used in what they normally make. The food was incredible very creative menu I highly recommend and we will go back again before we leave Miami Beach. I am super sensitive and felt perfectly fine after eating here. It's slightly pricey but worth every dime.

    Excellent! Enjoyed everything from drinks, appetizers, salad, entree, to dessert. I never get to have real dessert due to being gluten intolerant. Not only was my dessert fabulous (flan), but there were several good options that all sounded delightful. My friend has no problem with gluten and fully enjoyed an innovative meal full of flavor. I should mention that I'm vegetarian as well, and there was a variety of options. The food was some of the best I've had, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was warm, cozy, and sophisticated without being uppity. I'm hoping to enjoy again soon!

    The food at this entirely gluten free restaurant is excellent! We went for Valentine's Day so there was a prix fixe menu. Normally, this would be very stressful for my husband (who is gluten intolerant), as he isn't able to eat much when that is the case. We were so excited that he didn't have to worry or think about each delicious course as it was placed in front of us. We definitely hope to go back to try the regular menu.

    What a find. 100% gf!! Everything was delicious and we sampled the menu. Snapper crudo, BBQ shrimp (definitely order this), conch chowder, vegetable of the day plate and ropa vieja. For dessert biscotti and an espresso. Service was great. I will always eat here when in Miami.

    Incredible meal, beautiful space and amazing service. Friendly too. Visiting Miami Beach for the first time and went. Had amazing BBQ shrimp, Curry Goat and Roti Bread and Apple Brown Betty cake and coffee for desert. Definitely making another trip there before I leave. I'll be dreaming of this place when I'm back home. Food so good and anyone would love. Friends won't feel as if you've dragged them to some weird place that you can eat at. If no one revealed it was gluten-free, it would still be considered a great restaurant.

    Everything was amazing! -From appetizer to dessert. Highly recommend going- worth the money! In addition, we had our one year old daughter. Despite no bathroom changing table, this restaurant was the most child friendly with our daughter. They brought books for her to read to the table before the dinner arrived and were pleasant throughout the whole dinner.
