A word from Cavalli Miami Restaurant & Lounge
Cavalli Restaurant & Lounge, reflects all my passion for beauty and sensuality…

I wanted to contribute with my fashion and create a Restaurant & Lounge in Miami Beach where you can enjoy good company in an elegant, sophisticated atmosphere of good food while listening to the fascinating rhythms of Miami…

Fashion, Food and Design are the “tre eccellenze” of Made in Italy brought together in a single location!

The menu, strictly Italian, with an accent on Tuscan dishes goes perfectly with my Tenuta degli Dei wine.

I used pieces from the Cavalli Home collection to embellish the tables and furnishings thereby creating a unique and unmistakably glamorous environment…< br>
I am looking forward to a fashion-drink at the Cavalli Restaurant & Lounge in Miami Beach
Un grande abbraccio…

Roberto

  • Un DESASTRE Total !!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    Fuimos a cenar 2 matrimonios el Sabado 01 de Noviembre y todo fue un desastre : Primero trajeron las bebidas ( 2 Cocas y 2 Aguas ) en 2 tandas , se habian olvidado una Coca. Al leer el Menu nos dimos cuenta que eran distintos , el mio tenia platos que en el de mis amigos no estaban , segundo error de la noche. Nos trajeron aceite con hierbas para acompañar el pan que trajeron media hora despues. Pedimos mas pan y queso parmeggiano para acompañar las pastas : el queso tardo 10 minutos y el pan llego cuando no tenia mas comida en el plato. Pedimos cafe y fue imposible tomarlo con mis amigos : fueron llegando en distintas tandas y faltaba Splenda en la mesa , cuando lo trajeron el cafe estaba frio.

    I was very upset that they closed the main dinning area and moved us to the front patio without letting me know. It was very windy and we left after drinks for Scarpetta. I was looking forward for this dinner for months and was tossed aside for a private party. The day of the reso I was called to confirm and get my credit card and they "forgot" to mention it.

    But tasteless food. No sauce or reduction to add flavor to grilled octopus appetizer. Bronzino and spinach entree drowned in olive oil, all you could taste. Spaghetti de La mer - sauce disappointing, only flavor was the bits of lobster and pasta overcooked. Dessert however was amazing. Would go back for dessert only.

    You would think the name Cavalli says it all. This is not a vibrant scene place. Appetizers are very well made, specially the grilled octopus. Limited dinner menu, so didn't even go for main dish. Try it and make your own opinion

    The service was great. I tried the Miami Spice menu and everything my delicious! the burrata, the branzino and the tiramisu, even though I am not a tiramisu-fan. The gorgonza gnochis had a great flavor bur not a good texture. Still, I would recommend Cavalli Restaurant to a friend. The lounge upstair was closed, I will come back when they re-open!

    Went there to try the Miami Spice menu which looked very simple and not really interesting, but the food was really good, you did not have a huge choice on the Spice menu but definately good food and good quality. Was intrigued to see the restaurant thinking that it might have had some outrageous decor, being Cavalli, but in reality it was really nice and classy.

    You are not going to be inmerse in Cavalli's World when eating as his reataurant in South Beach. You'll find a rather small eatery where you can really eat at ease. I had expected something glorious about the decor. It wasn't. Do not go for the food. Good service, even if we overheard a fight among the staff. What I do not understand is why were we ushered to the bar for a cocktail, magnificently mixed by Lorenzo, if our table was ready and the place was calm? Anyway, they were really good. The atmosphere upstairs in the lounge is really Cavalli. Forget deserts.

    I'm extremely picky with Italian food and have nothing but compliments for Cavalli. The food is delicious, the ambiance hip, and the service is exceptional. This restaurant is the best up-scale Italian restaurant in Miami. You will not be disappointed.

    Dined on 8/12/2014
    Haven been invited in2 other occasions, I thought I had enjoyed it, but it was a total unrealistic scene which therefore I've never paid attention until this time. The staff kept pushing the drinks & alcohol. Too many times kept coming insisting & pushing that it got to the point it was a turn off. The Miami Spice Menu was never mentioned & when asked for it the attitude changed completely, from that point on we were not longer the customer, but the cheap customer & the waiter was not longer interested. It happens a lot in other restaurant too, but not in all of them. I kept thinking "why Am I letting them feel this way" Regretted every minute while there but stayed quiet & didn't add more to an already dramatic scene they try to sell .

    This restaurant is absolutely beautiful! Both the indoor and out door areas have a great vibe . The food was delicious! We were a large group and ordered numerous appetizers to share + entrees. I strongly recommend the artichoke salad . It was addictive! The black truffle risotto and the sea bass were the best I've had in quite some time.

    Food was very good. Service was good and attentive for a little on the cold side. We had made a special request informing the restaurant that we were celebrating our 33 wedding anniversary through Open Table as well as informing individual that called to confirm our reservation. Nothing was said or done during our dinner. The Hostess did wish us a Happy Anniversary as we left the restaurant. My wife was a disappointment. To make it worst the table right next to us received their dessert with Happy Anniversary on it and well wishes from their server.

    Although it was nicely decorated and the staff was very professional, the food was not as excellent as expected. And, the portions were extraordinarily small for the price. You pay more for the presentation than for the actual food on the plate.

    Péssimo serviço. Pedimos vinho em taças, que vieram servidas do bar. Para mim, até vinhos em taças é obrigação trazer a garrafa, mostrá-la e fazer a degustação. Ambiente deveras rebuscado, com mesas muito próximas. Não gostei e não voltarei.

    Miami has always been a place that tries way too hard to be cool and this place sums it up at the moment. The clientele are out of the real housewives...bad botox and plastic surgery abound on both young people and those beyond their best before date. Unfortunate as the food is quite good and the room casual and inviting. The faux hipsters detract from the enjoyment of the evening. Also, waiting for 40 minutes for the bill kind of puts a bad taste in your mouth. I had advised the restaurant that I had two celebrity types in the party and when the reservation was confirmed, the hostess volunteered that a good table awaited. Wrong. Worst table. Didn't complain, just won't come back or recommend.

    Perhaps I was expecting too much from a restaurant by the famous Roberto Cavalli. I have to admit, everything was good, like what you can find also in so many other good Italian restaurants. Mabe we had been too spoiled with outstanding until then. All in all a nice evening and I would nonetheless recommand it.
