  • This auditorium needs a remodel. The seats are old and worn. It feels like you are sinking down in them and there are tears on the backs of the chairs. The seats are made for short, skinny people. I w...  more »

  • I have been coming here for a very long time. I have seen many venues and it is always a treat. They have such a great atmosphere and the people are really courteous. The perfect views no matter where you sit. They have a hotel where you can stay if you are coming from out of town. The staff at the hotel are so nice too. From the moment you step out of your car the valet treat you like royalty. If you are wondering if the knight center is a nice place , I have to say its super classy. I go there when my favorite events are there. Truly a landmark place for Miami.
  • Always a good time! If you want a table definitely plan to have a reservation, which means you'll be there early. Food is ok, a bit pricey for what it is. Drinks are good and reasonably priced. Entertainment is great.
  • What a great place to have venues in downtown Miami..... James L Knight Center really is a wonderful place to have conversations. From its own place at the hotel is a way to save for those people flying out of state. From different floor to show all the venues involved. Easy access from downtown , Brickell and I95 . Having great staff to help setup and dismantle.
  • After so many years of being in business and holding so many big events, they should have made more room for parking. The parking garage still doesn't hold the crowd's so then you have to drive behind the building to park in empty lots that fill up very fast also. The parking and traffic is too much of a hassle but overall, the venue itself is nice.
  • I gave it a 3 only because I love A.C.E. and the staff was really nice, other than that, I would have given it a 1 star... I think the stage set up was not welcoming for this amazing group from Korea. I had first row seats side view section 113 row A seat 4 and 5 but they placed the audio speakers stacked up on the stage, completely blocking the view of the entire group. Someone definitely did not think this through. Sloppy work! A.C.E. performance of course was impeccable, they deserve better.
