A word from Pescecane Ristorante
When you experience the extraordinary sensation of an exquisite meal, you are not only putting your sense of taste under a test, but also the senses of smell and sight come along to discover a sophisticated variety of sensations. However, Pescecane Ristorante understands that good eating is much more than just a pleasant experience: it is an adventure that must be lived in fullness. With a select variety of original products exclusively imported for its preparation, the most genuine freshness that the Italian classicism can offer, and the warmest and most elegant social atmosphere that has ever been recreated between the waters of Surfside, today emerges this true casa-ristorante from among other existing World-class culinary works. Thus, Pescecane Ristorante has been voted "One of the Best Restaurants of the World" by the Black American Express.Continued

- Intimate settingFloladyDined on 9/13/2014To be fair, we had a fairly early reservation so could not make an assessment of the activity later in the evening. The food and service was impeccable and the restaurant is great for special occasions and date night.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- RenaVIPDined on 7/19/2014The overall experience was positive. "On the House" appetizers were great. The service was superb. The food was good. We'll definitely come back. We were surprised to see too many empty tables on a Saturday night. It is a little overprized.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 6/6/2014My favorite Italian restaurant in the area. Great service and excellent pasta dishes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- FrancieDined on 5/21/2014We were greeted with complimentary fried slivered zucchini, small chunks of parmesan cheese and fresh bread. The menu is a true ala carte menu. Prices are moderate but the dessert prices are expensive…Special Features:
- DeliciousOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 5/10/2014Food was great. Had pasta/ravioli stuffed with cheese and pear - amazingly good. They also prepared a special chicken parm which we have had there before and the lamb chops which were great - and a huge portion. Too full for dessert. Also a great dinner there.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not as good as advertisedJonasDined on 5/8/2014Food not good, just eatable, the main ingredient on each plate had too many spices and condiments, could not really taste the quality of the product
- Great experience!FortyDined on 3/7/2014The food and especially the service were impeccable. Unfortunately the couples who sat next to us were quite loud which diminished the pleasantness of the evening.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Not as expected (not in a good way)OpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 2/25/2014Didn't match the other reviews at all. Extraordinarily weak wine list -- despite lot's of empty bottles of much finer wines adorning the walls, none was available on the rather short list (unless you count the one listing for Tignanello). Food was just average, and when we asked for decaf coffee after the meal, they said they were out. But here's the thing -- they are across the street from a Starbucks -- they could have just bought some beans or even already ready-made decaf coffee, but instead just offered the regular. So, just an average place. Fine if you are walking up and down the street and need a place to eat, but we went as a destination and can't recommend it.
- Little gem tucked away. ExperienceSeafoodloverDined on 2/22/2014Little gem tucked away. Experience was awesome food and service. Would go back again when in the area. We truly enjoyed the food and ambience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- VacationMARIEVIPDined on 2/20/2014Went here while on vacation and sat outside the weather was perfect. Had the crab cake for appetizer it was delicious. The lamb melted in your mouth and the chicken was so moist. Would definitely eat here again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome ExperienceValentineDinerDined on 2/14/2014My wife and I were on vacation in the area and went to Pescecane for our Valentine's Day dinner. Everything about this restaurant is excellent. Phenomenal and friendly staff, very authentic Italian feel, and great food. To top it off, the friendly hostess gave my wife a Valentine's Day rose with a genuine smile while holding the door for us on our way out. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Quiet Surfside GemWallasweetVIPDined on 2/13/2014This unassuming street-front place on the main drag in Surfside turned out to be a delightful dining experience. The service was perfect, attentive but not overbearing. The food was delicious, from the amuse bouche to the dessert . I will be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hit and missOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 2/11/2014Came in here for a late night alternative to the restaurants at bal harbour. The service started off strong but diminished in the same way our food courses got progressively worse. The Dover sole was drowned in butter and my dinner partner's veal Marsala was overdone. Up mention to the waiter that the veal was unacceptable, instead of apologizing he asked if we wanted it to go. There is also no wine by the glass list, which was diasappointing.

- First time dinerChipVIPDined on 7/24/2013We are always looking for restaurants in the neighborhood so we decided to try it. We were the only customers so service was amazing. Wanted a glass of wine and no reisling, moscato, Zinfandel so had to have water. The fish was amazing but the chicken francese was a little tough and had bone. They gave u some nice little appetizers. Will definitely give them another chance.Special Features:

- This is a gem of a restaurant.elimarVIPDined on 2/20/2013This is a gem of a restaurant. Unpretentious but dedicated in making the experience a pleasant surprise. One member had the casear salad and two shared a special fusilli filled with a pear/gorgonzola cheese filling with a sauce. This was worth the trip. Light but all the flavors discernible. One member had the Dover Sole special which was the whole fish, lightly sauteed. The fish was fillet expertly by staff, the fish was fresh and flaky, not overly cooked and not over priced. A shared an order of the rack of lamb which was a total of eight pieces. Served medium as ordered Accompanied by expertly lightly garlic infused mash potatoes with a hint of lumps. Spinach sauteed in garlic was done well.Special Features:

- Fantastic!!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 10/30/2012We selected this place simply on a whim and we were greatly impressed. We had a group of 15 people and knew there would be some challenges as there always is with such a large group. The service was friendly, efficient, and they did their best to see that all the meals were ready at the same time. The food was nothing short of fantastic! Everyone in our group raved over the selections they had made, the way in which is was all prepared, presented and the taste!! I would recommend to everyone- when in the Miami area you have to try this place! Yummy!Special Features:
