Respond to Review of Ops! Cucina Mediterranea
Review: OK, so we're vegans in Europe going country to country, and you know what's it like - plain marinara on various noodles, you're starving. Not much fun at all. We had planned on going to Ops, but it was raining and almost didn't go, as we had to take a bus. Thank god we did, we would have missed the single best restaurant in the dozen cities we visited, hands down. NO WHERE else has such a selection of amazing food - and all vegan! I think almost all the reviews here are correct - but how this doesn't justify a 5 star rating is beyond me. Yes, it's expensive as hell - but you get what you pay for. (Last I checked "5 star" restaurants cost a lot, but maybe that's just here in Miami.) If you don't want to pay for a massive selection of vegan foods (that varies daily - my wife insisted we cancel plans and go back a second night), then go find a tourist trap to sell you spaghetti...again. The complaints about this place are ridiculous. The food quality isn't mcdonalds, so it's going to cost more. It's a buffet with dozens of options, and you end up filling your massive plate, put it on that scale, and pay a fortune. Not only that, it wasn't ANYWHERE near the most expensive meal we had in Europe. It's just not the Golden Coral. Hell, we even went back for seconds - you should've seen our check! And a bottle of wine! Happy wife = happy life. Anyone who A) complains about the price of this amazing food while in Europe (not Cleveland) or B) gives it less than 5 stars, is clinically insane. Do yourself a favor and remember you're not coming back here any time soon and splurge a little. Or go find a Maoz. And the staff was as kind as could be, I have no idea what a small minority are talking about. They were willing to explain to us in english what was in any dish we wanted to ask about. I have literally no idea what more we could have expected to make this place any better.
