Sunday's SOBE Food and Wine Farm to Table Brunch was a huge success. What a talented group of chefs we welcomed to the The Palms Hotel & Spa. TV Celebrities Geoffrey zakarian and Ingrid Hoffman, New York superstar chef Trevor Kunk, California chef Ben Ford, and local culinary heroes from The Federal, Jugo Fresh, and the Standard.

While the rest of the world deals with snow and other miserable weather conditions Mother Nature throws their way, foodies from all over the world are migrating to South Beach's Wine & Food Festival to soak up the sun and enjoy bites from their favorite Food Network chefs. Essensia's Farm to Table Brunch should be top of your list! http://blog.thepalmshotel.com/food-beverage/pure-leaf-farm-to-table-brunch/

worst service ever. I was at the spa with my mother on her birthday, we decided to have lunch there and it was the worst decision ever. the decor is beautiful and the food is ok. i told the hostess and the server that it was my mother's birthday so they could make sure that her experience was on point. the server dropped off our wine, didn't take our orders and came back after 10 or 15 minutes(she was walking around, while we were waiting for her to take our order) with a " how may I help you" she didn't tell us anything about the menu or make suggestions. The manager is actually worse than the server. when I told her that the service sucked she told me that she disagreed with me and didn't even apologize. the only reason why i didn't walk out was because my mother wanted a quick bite and didn't want to leave after we wasted a good 15 minutes there. i don't know where they get these people from(manager/server). Avoid this place, especially if you are a local.

Essensia is the restaurant and lounge in the Palms hotel, located between the chaos of South Beach and the chaos of the Fountainbleau hotel. Parking was easy (valet) and the restaurant validates your ticket so you'll pay 5$ plus tip. The hotel itself is adorned with beautiful palms and other tropical plants and trees and has an old Florida feel to it. I expected Ernest Hemingway to walk in at any moment, smoking a Cohiba and wearing a guayabera. There are quite a few interesting photos of various famous people that have presumably spent some time there. The restaurant has outside and inside seating, we elected for outside seating on the porch overlooking the pool and palm area. It was quite nice, and definitely has an old Florida/Key West feel to it. Except for the large family next to us whose 8 or 9 year old daughter was intent on informing the entire restaurant that she "had to go upstairs and take a dump" repeatedly, it was nice. I guess the moral of this part of the story is, ask to be seated away from the massive family with 14 screaming children and parents who clearly cannot be bothered (they are on vacation, after all). The cuisine was superb and service was excellent. They had an interesting and eclectic wine list, without being overwhelming. I opted for one from Cornas - from which I've never seen available in Miami before. Pleasantly surprised to see a northern Rhone wine instead of just the standard southern Chateauneuf-du-Pape GSM blend. What we ordered: Thai lemongrass lime soup (excellent), chilled local lobster with palm hearts and local avocado (just ok, the lobster was not super fresh), beet and heirloom tomato salad with local Burrata(excellent), kale and citrus salad with almonds (excellent), Peruvian Paiche with spinach and a celery root puree (excellent) and a grass-fed Filet Mignon with a radicchio risotto (good). We originally ordered the short ribs and then the diver scallops wrapped in bacon, however they were out of both (no big deal - it happens when you use locally sourced small batch ingredients). The short rib dish in particular was described by our server as being the best thing on the menu. I love the fact that that the menu is farm-to-table and uses local, organic and seasonal ingredients as much as possible. Miami needs more places like this - we'll be back for sure. I can't wait to see what other creations Chef Julie puts on the menu going forward.

There's no doubt you're in lush, beautiful Florida when you sit on the gorgeous outside terrace. You feel like you're at a resort. My husband and I had the Sunday brunch buffet. I ordered an omelet and he a Belgian waffle at the station. Both came out well. The artisan jams at each table were a nice touch and paired well with the assorted breads and pastries inside. I must say, the bacon was cooked perfectly (I am particular about squishy bacon). The food quality was good. It's one of the better brunch buffets I've been to. Cons: the coffee wasn't very good; bitter. The juices tasted deliciously fresh and are included in the buffet price, but good luck tracing down the wait-staff to have them bring you more than one. Overall: It was very nice; clearly fine dining.

Essensia is a great restaurant, the ambiance & food was great. I love the whole fresh organic concept of the restaurant and the fact that they grow their own spices/herbs right there on the premises. I highly recommend to try it.

Good food in a beautiful setting. The service was great. We stopped by again to try a few of their cocktails the following day. The bartender, Andrea, was very knowledgeable and helpful in pointing out places to visit on our vacation
