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 went to celebrate my better half' birthday with some great friends of ours, no regrets whatsoever. Great service & great food, that's a HOMERUN in my book. We'll be back soon."

  • "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."

  • "We had a group of 4 and needed a reason to go out and dress up a bit for a nice dinner. Christys fit the bill. We were visiting from out of town and I had worked in Miami in my previous life. We saw the sites and ended our trip at Christys and glad we did. I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner. Tip: The entrees are huge, so we split them between us an shared sides which are large as well..."

  • "All I wanted was to have a great dinner with just me and my wife for her birthday. Christy's supplied the perfect amount of romance for our special occasion. The ambience was great and the food was outstanding. Christy's helped me deliver a great dinner setting for my wife's birthday. We will definitely continue going to Christy's."

  • "I have been a customer at Christy's since 1989. This restaurant and Festival were our Coral Gables celebration places. Of course, Festival is long gone, but Christy's remained our let's get dressed up and go out to dinner spot. Last Friday night(03/28/2014 wll be my last trip to this establishment. We were last at Christy's for Thanksgiving and it was woderful, but a change of menu(no more duck) and an obvious new direction(jazz music in the bar) plus clients in flip-flops and t-shirts have destroyed this venerable spot. ."

  • "From the moment we arrived, the ambiance of this classic steak house spoke to us with class and energy. The convenience of the online reservation system with OpenTable made the experience even nicer. We have been to Christy's many times over the years, and it still holds up as one of the finest steak houses in town. From our famous Caesar Salads to our steaks and salmon, everything was delicious. Even the famous Baked Alaska desert was still a treat. We will definitely come back again."

  • "Our family has been going to Christy's for 3 generations now and we have fond memories of it. This time although the food was great, the service did not allow me to give it the 5 stars it deserves. We arrived for 8:00 dinner and although we had reservations and there were plenty of tables in the main dining area we were sat in the oak room. I told my family to look at it as a private dining experience and we gladly sat there. The problem came when after having the dishes from the appetizers sit at our table for what felt like an eternity an the waiter nowhere to be found. At that point I got up and got the manager, Leo was apologetic and made sure that our experience got back on track, thank you Leo."

  • "Let me start by saying that I don't recommend this place at all! nice decor with burgundy walls is nice but that's it. We went for Valentines dinner and were disappointed in the food and service. We ordered filet mignon and the NY Strip which were Ok in taste but not great. the main thing was the sides and presentation that had me like "are you serious" the sides are very limited and not exciting at all when your paying so much for dinner. Mac and Cheese, baked or mashed potato, green beans?? we asked for the best of the worst and went with the mashed potatoes but were told they ran out so then we chose the baked potato and asked if they can mash it, they said no. Steak was served in its own plate and potato on another..with nothing else."

  • "Chrsty's has been a well established restaurant in Coral Gables. The service this last Saturday left us without the feel of what we were paying for. The food was excellent but the service was lacking. No bread or butter into the middle of the dinner. No attention to detail and basically the waiter was not with it that evening."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We had been to Christy's before and decided to spend Valentine's night there. The food and wine were excellent. Service was outstanding. While we were dining there was also someone playing in the piano bar. The atmosphere was very romantic. If you want a place to have a great meal with a romantic feel and great service, Christy's is the place to be."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Christy's one of our favorites. The food is incredible and the ambience is perfect. With thoughts that maybe the experience would be not up to par due to one of the year's busiest for restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised when we were not rushed and the service (James) was simply top notch! The sea bass ordered was perfection! Thank you for making Valentine dinner exceptional."

  • "But I think the quality of your steak needs improvement."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The prime rib was bar none the best! We were not crazy about the Caesar salad, too much dressing, salad a little wilted.. The wild mushrooms were very good. The macaroni was not. The service was impeccable!"

  • "Christy's is a Coral Gables landmark that I have visited for over 20 years and it never disappoints."

  • "We have been dining at Christy's for over 30 years. It remains as wonderful as ever. The menu is different than what we remember, but still remains 100% Christy's. The duck is no longer served, and I must admit I am a duck lover and Christy's was one of the best in town! would be nice if they brought it back as they were known for their Duck. All in all a wonderful evening. The Piano bar is a great place to catch a lite dinner with friends, enjoy the excellent food and all for a very reasonable price."

  • "I had not been to Christys in a long time when some one suggested steak we said lets go to Christys but the steak was disappointing Also the snapper I ordered was not that great. Baked Aaska was disappointing. Pricey for the quality of the food."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "Waiter was very friendly, could not have been nicer or more pleasant or more helpful. Food was quite good also. I had not been to this restaurant in awhile, some of my favorite dishes were no longer on the menu. We went here because they have a liquor license, not just beer and wine like most. We were with another couple who dring cocktails. The only problem was that I ordered a dessert for 2 (baked alaska) to be shared among four of us. When we got the bill it said dessert for four, $28. I may have been overcharged. Also, more pricey than most upscale steak houses, but food quite good."
