Diner Reviews
  • "Food is very good while dinners become hoarse talking over the noise of other diners. The music was not loud! The service was inattentive. Nearly impossible to get refills of wine, bread, soda. Our waiter disappeared and was just a inefficient order taker. Parking is a disaster. We waited 45 minutes for our car when the restaurant did not seem busy. We drove away and realized the valet did not leave the smart key in the car and we had to return to the restaurant to get the key back. At 2 in the morning our garage security called us and said our lights were on. The valet switched the lights to on from the automatic mode. There are so many good and great restaurants to choose from in South Beach that a local does not have to dine here. "

  • "What you expected from a South Beach restaurant that caters to VIP's and tourists who don't care what they spend as long as they are seen"

  • "I am not from Miami but I have been traveling there a lot lately for business. Every time I am town I make a point to have dinner at 1826. It is not only an incredible restaurant but it has a great club scene later in the evening."

  • "I'm not a huge eater, but this restaurant serves the tiniest portions of food I've ever had. My husband and I went with another couple on Saturday night. For an appetizer, my husband and I ordered the salmon tartar. When the waiter brought it over, we thought it was a joke. There were four tiny cones with a dollop of salmon. The two bites we each had were delicious though. Then for entrees we had the chicken and halibut. Each dish came with approximately 3 ounces of protein with a small garnish. To be fair, everything tasted delicious, but the portion sizes were comical. Also, our waiter was very rude."

  • "The food and service were great. Our entrees and appetizers were really delicious. When you think about the food days later you know it was not only good,but truly devine. We ate in the main dining area on the second floor. Had a drink before dinner in the lounge area that is two floors. Such a cool vibe. Love the wine list on a tablet, great idea! Would return in a heartbeat!"

  • "I came to Miami from NYC for a friends birthday. We made reservations for 1826 as we had seen the great reviews. 1826 did not disappoint. The restaurant is beautiful and the environment was exactly what we were looking for. The service was great, but the food was the main attraction. Everything was so creative and delicious, presentation phenomenal. I find that most places in Miami are pretty predictable, but this was something unique and different. We were in a group and it was great to all share things. I would definitely come here on a date as well. Looking forward to returning."

  • "Deemed "flat" water, they use $8 bottles of Voss. We thought it was, you know, regular water that you get for free at every restaurant on earth. But no, we ended up getting charged $16 for water. We were given two options: sparkling or flat water. I suppose we needed to ask for tap or ice water - how could we know? Food was good, but the sneaky water situation put a damper on the whole experience."

  • "I read that there was a good chef in charge of this restaurant and there is talent and flavor behind some of the dishes, but the dishes were very small and expensive and just not worth the money they charge. Add in typical South Beach service that does not really care about your dining experience and this just becomes unfortunately another overhyped place. The place tries to be modern and hip, but in the end the place just has no character and soul. Your hard-earned money is better spent at other locations in this town."

  • "Parking is a drawback. Having to reverse out of valet into pedestrian and Collins Ave traffic is bad at best."

  • "Inovative dishes and perfect quality! New concept to share and taste different plates is a superb idea. Professional and excellent service.. Unfortunately the restaurant is very noisy and the seats are extremely uncomfortable ! Especially the sofas! I suppose the interior architect who designed this trendy restaurant, never tried to seat for 2 hours on it."
