I visited The Trapiche Room for a Miami Spice preview tasting and I was enthralled with the intimate space from the moment we stepped inside. It is very small, fitting only about 7 tables and 22 guests, but the luxury and style is evident in every detail and accent. From the intricate mural and paneling on the walls, to the classic, sophisticated furniture, nothing was overlooked in its design. I had never been here before, so I was pleasantly surprised to learn there was such a romantic place inside the Marriott.

I want to start by saying the level of service was impeccable from start to finish. Although the size of the restaurant contributes to the staff's ability to provide great service, there is an obvious level of attention and thoughtfulness displayed by the servers. They made sure everyone at the restaurant was taken care of and provided suggestions with a friendly nature. The hotel's Executive Chef Alex Paz came out and talked about the preparation of his dishes, along with the inspiration behind each one. He explained his vision of offering fresh, flavorful dishes in the Miami Spice menu, and how he wanted everyone to know The Trapiche Room was there to provide each guest with a memorable experience.
