    The brunch was very nice and very pricey (over $100 per person). The food was very good and the ambience was also, aklthough we had perhaps the worst table in the room.

    My Mom & I had a lovely brunch. The buffett offered endless choices, it wasn't too crowded to get around. Our waiter took marvelous care of us, the service on all counts was lovely. We had a nice little view of the ocean and tons of people watching. Each of the food choices we indulged in was well done. I do wish there had been more than one type of dim sum. It was pricey but fun.

    WE HAD A NICE TIME, ONE OF THE MEALS THAT WAS THE SPECIAL NY STEAK WAS NICE BUT THE POTATOES WERE EXTREMELY SALTY, ( THEY REDID FOR ME) BUT WHEN THE POTATOES CAME BACK I WAS ABOUT FINISHED WITH MY MEAL! OUR DESSERTS CAME EXTREMELY LATE, BY OUR WAITER TOOK CARE OF IT AND SAID IT WOULD BE ON THE HOUSE, I GUESS IT MUST HAVE BEEN AN OFF NIGHT! PS THE CHOCOLATE DESSERT DID NOT HAVE ANY FILLING IN IT! I ASKED THE WAITER ABOUT IT, HE SAID IT SHOULD HAVE HAD SOME FUDGE INSIDE OF IT. WE DID NOT GET ANY!

(this is the other restaurant) The food at Chippino is good, but the most impressive was the desert. Romantic live music adds to the mood of the night.

    My friend and I were wrapping up a 4 day vacation in Miami Beach and decided to head down to Key Biscayne. She is a big fan of Italian cooking so the Cioppino was a natural. We arrived on time for our reservation but needed to wait for a short bit for our table to be prepared. Initially, we were next to a rather boysterious group celebrating a birthday.. fortunately they were mostly done... We were blessed with an outstanding Server Placido. He took us into his care and provided us with prompt service but plenty of space for talk and the actual dining. The food was top notch.. notably subtle on terms of seasoning which i found refreshing. Would recommend.

    We stayed in the hotel and thought it would be nice to eat here but I have to say it was quite overpriced and the food was nice, but not amazing--not worth what we paid which was the most expensive meal of our trip but not the best. the setting is nice and the service is attentive but the food could be a lot better at these prices. The pasta, for example was extremely heavy and filling but was just not great tasting. The wine list also very overpriced, according to my husband. The Mexican restaurant, at the hotel, was similarly not worth it. The main restaurant area was also packed and very noisy with people at some convention, though luckily we sat outside which was pleasant with a view of the ocean.

    My wife and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary here at Cioppino, and we LOVED IT! Our waiter was Victor, and he was awesome! Of course, the prices are high, but the food was great and the ambiance is superb, especially if you eat at the outside terrace, as we did. After dinner, you can actually walk around and enjoy the beauty that the resort can offer. Make sure your waiter validates your valet parking ticket, and it will be free!! I really recommend this restaurant to anyone that would like to celebrate a special occasion.

    Cioppino is one of my favorite restaurants in Miami. Being in the Key makes it you travel outside Miami. Love to have brunch there. Yesterday, I was surprised to find different fare that tasted well but it was not what I have enjoyed there before. Hopefully, this would be a one time only.

    The location was great and the outdoor dining was very nice. The food on the other hand was mediocre and the service was poor. I had to flag down a waiter a few times just to get my water refilled and the second course can out mid-way after the first. The wait staff literally moved my first course out of the way to place my second course. I will never go back.

  • overall dinner at Cioppino
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/12/2009
    overall dinner at Cioppino at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne was a pleasant experience. That is until the check came. Dinner for two with the most inexpensive bottle of wine on the wine list came to $260. Of course any service at the restaurant comes with an 18% gratuity already included. It would be nice if they would offer wine by the glass, even a fairly low priced house wine to help lessen the damage from the bill. I would greatly recommend eating outside the Ritz where you can get more value for your dollar and good if not better food.

    I recommend Cioppino for everybody thats in the Miami/Miami Beach area on Sunday for Brunch. You will get more then your moneys worth with the food and drinks. The Ritz Carlton is known all by itself and Cioppino takes the Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne to the next level of ambiance when it comes to their Sunday Brunch. If you go once, you will go again and again. The Staff and Chefs do very great job with the food selection.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/28/2009
    This is my second time to Cioppino. This time we got to sit at an outdoor table, which was really nice; there is enough space between tables, which helps to have a quiet, nice conversation. The food was very good, specially the pappardelle. The salmon frio (appetizer) was really good, too, but dessert was nothing out of the ordinary. The wine was outrageously expensive ($18 dollars/glass of chardonnay), and the 18% tip (already included) seemed to not reflect the level of service. Overall, a good experience, but there are certainly better places to spend money dining out.
