A word from Christy's
No flash in the pan! Christy’s is the Grand Dame of Coral Gables restaurants, still packing them in after thirty years with its simple formula of great food and impeccable service. Politicians, CEO's and Celebes have all made this landmark a local favorite. From Rod Stewart to Tiger Woods. From Michael Jordan to Governor Jeb Bush. Yes, this is THE place for great aged steaks and prime rib, grilled lamb chops, fresh Florida seafood and homemade desserts. The awards keep rolling in—from CNN, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Miami Herald and the Zagat Survey. But the line at the door tells the story. This is the place to be. Best bets: the award-winning Caesar salad served with all entrées, shrimp cocktail (man eaters), prime rib, fresh grilled yellowtail snapper and signature Baked Alaska. Please visit our website for further details. **For reservations of 10 or more guests, please contact the restaurant directly.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I like Christy's but to fully recommend it I would need to go again, because that special night there were a table with a couple and two girls, maybe 9-10 years old, that were really making a lot of noise, moving from their seats, screaming, playing....also, there was other table with people talking too loud, thanks God our reservation was late, 9 p.m., therefore, maybe in 45 minutes people from those two tables were out....Also, I reserved in Christy's because it was a especial occasion: my husband birthday, and I wanted something romantic and a friend recommend it as that, but really was not. But let me mention that our waitress was very kind and there was a pie, flambé, with a candle that really we appreciated very much."

  • "Another great night at Christy's. Tonight I sat at the bar with Stephanie and had a very relaxing dinner. The Grey Goose Martini was excellent, especially with the stuffed olives. I considered going for the 8 ounce filet but opted for "bar food" in the form of Short Rib Slider and Fries, which did not disappoint. The meal, service and ambiance were all perfect!"

  • "Christy is a legendary restaurant in Coral Gables. I recommend it for memorable dinners. Great service, great food, a nice piano bar. Christy is an exquisite place to dine out. Please try the black beans as an appetizer, and the bread pudding for dessert."

  • "This was the best meal that I had since living. My ribeye steak was up to par with the best in New York. My girl friends scallops was served over risotto that was wonderful. The caesar salad is included and was delicious."

  • "I remember coming to Christy's with my family when I was a teenager and loved it. I just visited with my husband and my children and I must say It was not how I remembered it. There was a much,much older crowd and I felt that the quality of the scallops that my daughter ordered were not what they could have been given the cost, four small overcooked scallops. Salad was good and the desert saved the night. Other than that I will probably not visit again. :( Menu really needs an update."

  • "Eating at Christy's is all about getting your money's worth. Sure, the meals can be pricey... but it's worth every penny if you're looking to celebrate a special occasion or enjoy a relaxing evening with a special someone. The ambiance is nice and has a very old-school feel. The art on the wall is fun to admire and the wine list is exquisite. Of course, when you go to Christy's, it's all about the meat. I had the skirt steak on this particular occasion and it was delicious. I also enjoyed Christy's famous Caesar salad very much. I would absolutely recommend eating at Christy's to any person(s) seeking to enjoy a peaceful meal where the service is great and the vibe is relaxed."

  • "Our group of 8 was greeted at the door by very friendly staff and immediately seated at a good table. The waiter, Roger, was attentive, knowledgeable, and answered all questions with a smile. I enjoyed one of the best steak I had had in years and the salad was delicious. Good selection of wine at reasonable prices and the creme bulee made all of us very happy patrons of a landmark Coral Gables dining establishment."

  • "Food was good, Steak was cooked to perfection. Everyone ordered something different and all food was delivered hot and correctly. Dessert was also good. The only thing that was not top notch was the coffee. It was cold. the waiter brought another cup fresh brewed and it was good. The service was wonderful."

  • "Avishai the assistant manager was very professional and accommodating. We had an amazing meal with fantastic food and our server Diego went out Of his way to make our evening special. We both had filet mignons and the best Ceasar salad in Miami. Dessert was as good as it gets. Can't wait to go back. Nowadays to find great service and amazing food is rare in the Miami dining scene. Chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream was delicious."

  • "We have been dining at CHRISTY'S for many, many years and have never been disastified with any part of this "indulgence." With little exception, Jesus has always been our requested server and he has always made us feel special. Yesterday, the Father's Day event, Jesus was not on duty, but we were fortunate to have met James. Outstanding!! Lovely personality and a warm sense of humor. So, we can only say, that it has been an ongoing delight for us to visit your establishment...CHRISTY'S The Barnet Family. Lionel, Jan, Karen, Marc & Eric"

  • "Tradition is a wonderful thing. Christy's has withstood the test of time and new-fangled competition. As the Gables earliest still standing steak house, it is giving us all a great meal in a great, classic environment. Of course the beef is terrific, and the Cesar Salad. But come for the perfectly seared herb-crusted Sea Bass! And the Snapper filet is excellent too. The chocolate brownie desseret a la mode is enough for three! The bar was surprisingly lively at 6:45 on a Thursday night and the seperation of tow smaller dining rooms makes for a great ambience. Bravo to Christy's for staying strong."

  • "My husband and I went, by the way, during the Restaurant Week and we were very pleased. It has been a while since my last visit. The Caesar salad was ok, but the filet mignon and the key lime pie were delicious! The wine was at the right temperature, not very common in Miami. But most of all the service, James was our waiter, was also impeccable. Not only the food service but the wine service as well."

  • "Chris and Leo oversee the best neighborhood gem in south Florida. Food is always consistently great and the professional service from Amanda and her wing woman Stephanie is second to none. Just took 16 of my most important clients there for a luncheon meeting.....perfect in every way! Why go anywhere else!"

  • "Christy's is an institution. Restaurants come and go; Christy's came in 1978 (I was here) and it has stayed with the same excellence and charm throughout the years. We were a party of six who are dear friends like family. Two of our guests are from Ecuador and this was their first experience and they were very impressed and satisfied. Avi Shaiaz is our regular waiter (by request) and he was, as always excellent. Our four friends were thoroughly impressed with his attentiveness, personality, efficiency and courtesies. French onion soup and Caesar salad are must have staples. Christy's is our steakhouse. "

  • "While it's a little on the expensive side, the class of service, quality of food and elegance make it worthwhile. My only regret was that for a restaurant of this caliber, they did not have valet parking nor a parking lot. Having to worry about parking meters was a negative to an otherwise nice evening and dinner."

  • "I have occasioned Christy's over the years since it first opened in 1978. One of my professional business groups had weekly luncheons there every Monday for years. Christy's is Coral Gables. It is the only Gables Restaurant that has both a business and social atmosphere rolled in to one. The food is always great and the service excellent. We celebrated my birthday there in April and my wife said "we are coming here for our anniversary". This will be our restaurant of choice to celebrate our anniversary yearly as long as we are in town. Our waiter, Avi, is outstanding. "

  • "We have been dining at Christy's forever. Sadly, it is not the same. We were celebrating both our May birthdays and Mother's Day. The bread (which in the past was great, served on a cutting board, warm and luscious), was served sliced and cold (just out of the refrigerator) in a basket. We mentioned this and were promptly brought a new basket, warmer, but dry and stale tasting. The caesar salad was lacking also. The lobster was average to me; my husband (who is from Boston) complained it was dry and not sweet at all. The server, Roger, was exceptionally good - delivered impeccable service...only raves for him! My husband had excellent coffee but didn't order dessert...it was a rather anticlimactic celebration! "

  • "We were disappointed. It was extremely noisy even in the back room. The waiter, we knew from previous visits was substandard this time. He brought the wine list and then seemed to disappear for a long time and we had to find another waiter to give the wine order. The food was also substandard compared to previous. We were not that hungry so I had the short ribs. Nothing special at all and not that tender. My wife had a hamburger which in a steakhouse should be good. Sadly it was awful with pieces of gristle inside. Also was tough and overcooked. That is not how she had ordered it. The Caesar salads were very good. Also we ordered the Portabello mushroom appetizer which was moderately good. Had fond memories of this place now dashed"

The bread pudding desert was the best ever. Very nice ambiance-soft lights. Our waitress was excellent. Not crazy about the wine list but will bring my own the next time."

  • "We ate at Christy's last Saturday night & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was a fine meal - delicious red snapper & steaks - after starting with a very tasty calamari appetizer and the restaurant's famous ceasar salad. We finished up with flaming baked Alaska which we demolished - just so good! Christy's was as good as advertised with exceptional service and a comfortable setting. I would definitely recommend to families with grown children or senior foodies. This is not a hopping scene, but rather a wonderful dining experience. If possible, we will certainly return!"

  • "This restaurant lived up to its great reputation. Although the items are a bit expensive (be prepared to spend some money) I still left the restaurant feeling more than satisfied. The service was fantastic; our waitress was informative and patient and all of the items ordered were brought out in a timely and first class manner. Everything we order was "top notch" from the wine, appetizers, steaks, sides, & dessert. This is a fantastic special occasion spot for a couple or maybe party of up to 6 people. When comparing steak houses in Miami, this definitely ranks near or at the top for me now. I will definitely be going back."
