Vix in Miami

rd | Mar 13, 2006 10:03 AM

Many thanks to all of you who wrote great recos for our 3-night getaway to Miami. We had an amazing time and really loved your city! Our big night out was dinner at Vix. I second those that feel it was underwhelming. The ambience was great and just what we wanted for our celebratory event but all the food was just OK. The foie gras appetizer was actually gross (and I love foie gras -- too many flavors, too much going on in that dish) and the rock shrimp appetizer was pretty good but not great, too much sauce and not enough shrimp in the texture. The black cod entree was awesome in that the fish was really excellent but the mashed peas that went with tasted like baby food! The service was friendly but very slow. We had to ask twice for more water and the wait for our wine was interminable, we had already been served our appetizers and nearly done with them b/f the wine showed up (though we asked twice). All in all, I am glad we went for the experience but would not go back for the food. Thanks again to all of you for the great recommendations you sent our way.
