Perfection in every way!
Our dining experience at The Setai Grill was divine in every way. Our every need was anticipated and met by the efficient staff. Great wines and the best Scotch was available. The atmosphere is clubby quiet but energized by locals. The young chefs were cheerful and answered questions about our selections. The rib eye we shared was cooked to perfection with a fantastic potatoea au gratin. The homemade roquefort was divine. The manager, Mr. Hakan Balkuvvar was polished. knowledgeable and his service was reminiscent of an earlier time. This is an excellent steak house and we had a truly memorable experience.

only problem - dress code
only problem - dress code at one and too much vodka at the other table
one should be more picky!

Fantastic food and service.
Fantastic food and service. Highly recommend the mashed potatoes with truffles. Steaks were to die for and were perfectly cooked.

Unexpectedly fine dining experience
We both had bone-in 18 oz. NY strip steaks and they were amazing - flavorful, cooked to the right temperature and juicy. The service was impeccable. We dined on a quiet Sunday evening and staff outnumbered customers. You only had to make eye contact with one of them and they were at your table asking what they could bring you. The wine list is extensive. One pleasant surprise is that they sell some rather fine wines by the glass, unlike many places. They were pouring a very fine Bourdeaux for me - something I wouldn't have expected to get by the glass at most restaurants.

Had a fabulous meal here during my last trip to Miami. The meal started with bread still fresh from the oven that was flaky and wonderful. The Betteraves salad was delectable and had some of the best goat cheese that I've ever eaten. The smoked eggplant cavier was also to die for. So smooth and cooked perfectly. The smoked salmon was delicious. We also got the Dover Sole. I had never had sole before, and I absolutely loved it. It was very fresh and perfectly prepared and flavored with parsley, lemon juice, and brown butter.
Service all evening exceeded my expectations. The staff was so amazing and attentive. I would definitely dine here again if I return to Miami!

Somewhat over eager...
Although a excellent ambience, the staff can be over eager. A stand down attitude could be better.

Setai Great for Miami Spice
Very good meals. Had wine pairing for $29 extra. Excellent food. Pasta was a little skimpy in size. Chocolate mousse also small for dessert. The meat was delicious. Did not try catch of the day. Bread, individually baked in pan, like corn bread. delicious!!! Very attentive service and Maitre D' very helpful with wine pairing.

We had the Miami Spice selection on Sunday night, my wife got the catch of the day which was salmon, and thought it was very good. I got the steak with argula and the taste was fantastic, but the downside was that the steak was so thin that it was not filling enough. Service was nice, staff was nice and the scene is and staff are very laid back.
