    What a pleasant find in South Beach. Our fish was cooked perfectly and the mushroom saganaki was a real treat. Our waiter could have done a little better job fileting the fish as there were a few too many bones. And of course, parking in South Beach, if not a nightmare is always an adventure.

    It was OUTSTANDING!!! The food, the service, the atmosphere...all excellent. They serve ice water with a slice of cucumber which is a great touch! The servers all work as a team to ensure you are never in need of anything. They serve warm, toasted bread drizzled with olive oil with a side of fresh tomatoes and feta cheese. I got the Greek salad as an appetizer. For my entree, I got swordfish with mashed potatoes and grilled mushrooms. Again, everything was SO fresh and cooked so well. For dessert we split the baklava which I had never had before. It was served drizzled with honey along with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. Amazing! I can not say enough good things about this place. It was our favorite dinner of our trip.

    We had never heard of the Poseidon until we read a review in the Miami Herald a few days before starting a mini vacation on Miami Beach to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. Although there were not many customers on the Monday evening, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was exceptional and the food was excellent. We will recommend this gem to all of our friends.

    Gifts from the sea. Truly outstanding fish. We shared a whole branzino just grilled and seasoned with lemon, olive oil, and herbs. One of the best preparations of this dish I've had. Incredibly fresh and flavorful. Had grilled octopus for appetizer - generous and perfectly grilled. My wife had a calamari with Greek cheese and tomato sauce which was wonderfully flavorful and succulent - not rubbery as calamari can often be. The server was quite attentive and solicitous and provided a complimentary shot of Ouzo at the conclusion of the meal (but he insisted that we swig it down with one flourish and yell 'OPA'). The decor was not really impressive, but the restaurant was neat and clean and provided a friendly casual atmosphere.

    Stumbled upon Poseidon when waiting for a film at the Cinemateque--and now, it is one of my favorite restaurants on the Beachl. Seriously delicious Greek food. The Sampler and the Grilled Octopus are amazing--better than Milos and a third of the price.

    It seems they cut themselves a deal because what you read about it on Yelp does not correspond to what they offer Fresh fish comes very frozen , the salad might as well say whole onions, whole tomatoes The waiter sells you the idea of it being excellent while in reality could be the worst greek restaurant ever been too and more expensive than others On top of all terrible, sour coffee that impersonates as Lavazza .

    The Greek salad was a PROPER Greek salad with ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers and onions with a chunk of creamy feta, drenched in Kalamata olive oil and dusted with oregano. Heaven! The beet salad was fantastic.The shrimp saganaki is not to be missed and neither are the Biftekia gemista (Greek burgers off the grill, flavored with fresh herbs and stuffed with cheese) are juicy and flavorful. The menu is comprehensive. Great selection of sides. The service was exceptional. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable. When I mentioned that I was originally from Greece he had the chef come out to say hello. I wish we had discovered Poseidon earlier in our trip as we would have been back to sample even more of the chef's delectable cooking.

    Fresh seafood on this menu. And it was cooked perfectly. I had scallops covered in light creamed spinach, pernot, and bernaise. lemony and fresh. Shellfish was perfecltly cooked and asparagus added crunch, spinach added texture. She had a salmon filet seasoned liberally, and it complimented the mixed green salad blend to a tee. Service was friendly, and the place was empty (late lunch). Would recommend

    If you're seeking excellent, authentic Greek cuisine in Miami, then this is the place. As a Greek myself, I can speak with experience when I mention the level of authenticity and quality of the food. Not to mention I was there with my toddler son who was also quite pleased with the grilled octopus and side of pasta specially made for him. Great job guys! I will be back the next time I'm in Miami!

    Chose this restaurant based on its ratings on TripAdvisor and was thoroughly impressed. A group of 6 work colleagues went here for dinner and all enjoyed our meals. Seafood pasta got rave reviews as did the lamb chops which I personally tasted. I ordered the whole fish and it was extremely fresh and mild tasting if not a little bland. It was expertly boned at the table by who may have been the Greek owner. Apparently the family is from the area of Kalamata which happens to match the region where the table olive oil is pressed. For an appetizer, we ordered the Assorted Greek Spread Platter that included a spicy pepper feta cheese spread called Tirokaftari which was spectacular. In addition, the complimentary broiled bread was great too.

    After dining at a number of fashionable, overpriced impersonal places in South Beach, this place was a breath of fresh air, literally. The outdoor seating is like sitting on a patio in Greece. Terrific, friendly service that could not have been more enjoyable. Great fresh fish, fabulous desserts, abundant wine. It felt like the Greek Islands!

    I was looking for a restaurant at the last minute to go to in South Beach and wanted something not too fancy but different. I also was eating very late 9:30 pm so I wanted to eat something that would not be too heavy. Well I got what I wanted, I loved this place. The octopus was great the vegan mousaka was great and the service was outstanding. Loved the fact they had all my favorite greek beers and wines. Will be back. Only one disappointment is that they don't have a liquour license yet, but they are applying since they are new and I can understand its hard to get all these expenses together for a new place. I love Greece and I love Poseidon. Again I definitely will be back to try their other menu items

    We sat outside for dinner. The weather was perfect, the noise level was controlled. The seating wasnt on the sidewalk so we werent being hit by the pedestrians like you do at other restaurants. We ordered the app sampler which was very good, but could have used more pita bread. I ordered the scampi saganaki. It was a bit soupy and only had two scampi pieces, but overall it was very good. I would def return to this restaurant.

    We were thrilled with the food at Poseidon. I'm actually even thinking about going there again before we leave Miami in a couple days. The food was outstanding and I loved everything I ate. Things were a little chaotic with our service as rain caused them to have to scramble and reseat several parties inside. Our waiter was slightly less than attentive but that also just seems to be the way it is in Miami. All the staff were very friendly and we truly enjoyed ourselves. You won't be disappointed!

    We chose poseidon because we love greek food. My wife and I went on our honey moon to greece and it was absolutely worth it ! The restaurant is nice and cozy! My wife had scallops saganaki as a starter (which was terrific) and I had the grilled octopus (which was DELICIOUS as well as very tender) !!As a main course, we shared a whole fish on the grill !man that was the best fish we ever had within the last few years!moist and grilled to perfection .We asked to meet the chef and he came out to greet us at our table with a smile. he is in his 30's and grew up in kalamata, south of greece. He explained to us that he has a secret technique from Greece in order to keep the fish moist on the grill. we are definitely coming back soon !

    The food was delicious and they serve adequate portions. We really enjoyed the atmosphere. I'm actually surprised with a few of these comments I read here regarding the food/ service. All the items we had, from the Greek salad, the bifteki with fresh Greek fries and the grilled octopus, were all very tasty and I felt like I was on a Greek island enjoying the food, wine and music. Our waiter was very attentive and had a great humor. It was really an enjoyable experience and would like to plan my next event here soon!
