    we were there on Miami spice menu. The waiter was very professional. He explained additional cost and they gave us happy anniversary card and complimentary dessert with a candle. The plate was also decorated for us. Great experience. Beware that there is a $10 vallet charge.

    I was celebrating my wife birthday I had made a reservation for a window table at 2:30 PM on Sunday. It was not available on arrival. However the manager on duty did his best to resolve the issue and finally like 15 minutes later he accommodated us. It was a great service attitude. It was a very good experience. Thanks

    Dined on 8/24/2014
    Outstanding restaurant all around, but they must do something about self-parking. I don't like leaving my cay to valet parking, so last Sunday when I went to S&M I parked myself and payed the metter. After my lunch and without may paid time expired, I found A ticket on my windshield. Apparently, on Sundays the metters are not operative and you have to pay somebody USD 20, BUT WHO COULD HAVE GUESSED THAT? WHY DO THE METTERS WORK? IT IS REALLY AN UNFAIR TRICK!!!

    If you like to sit down for hours and see people that just come in and are placed in front f you, even thought you have reservations, this is the place for you. 1 1/2 hour waiting time and the reservation does not mean a thing. The food is not that special for the kind of abuse we had to take. There are 1000 restaurants that are better or equal in the South Florida area, without the abuse.

  • Honestly - Not Worth It
    Scorpi
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Had reservations for 7:15pm to sit outside. We wanted something romantic & special by the water. Pro 1) Outside sitting is on a 1st come 1st serve bases. So why did they not call me and inform me that we could not sit outside with a RSVP. Pro 2) we decided to stay for dinner and put our names on the list to dine outside. Management was not willing to assist in the process of getting us a table outside. We waited 30mins and noticed the outside host accepted money from a regular and gave the guy and his family a table, despite the fact that we, along with other couples were waiting. Pro 3) romantic is an understatement. It was super noisy outside, kids were running around everywhere, and screaming. Not worth the money or time. Never again!!!

    I have been at this restaurant several times before but this time the service was terrible. It was really slow. I ordered the filet and it did not have much taste. For the price the food you can get a better steak at the other high end steak houses in Miami. Very disappointed. Will not be back.

    Steak was low quality, and sides were gross-mac and cheese was watery and flavorless with breadcrumb overload. Service was awful. We waited for a long time to order, and the timing between salad, entrees, and dessert was awkwardly long. Both of our drinks were nearly gone halfway through our meal, we were never offered another. We ate 2 bites of the giant mac, and our server took it away without asking if it was OK or if we'd like to take it home, big waste. Worst of all, when he picked up my plate, there were at least 20 ants on the table....yuck!!! No apology, just told us we could go sit somewhere else in a very loud room. The wrong dessert was then brought out, and still never asked if we'd like another glass of wine. We won't go back!

    My wife and I go 3-4 times a year and we went this time for the Miami Spice menu. We both got the 8oz filet from the Spice menu and we're disappointed. It's a steak house yet both steaks quality were underwhelming. If you don't want to participate in the Miami Spice promotion, don't, but do no sell us subpar quality meat. We can tell the difference.

    The view can only carry this restaurant for a sole visit; it's overpriced for lunch. Waiter keeps pushing expensive items- specials, drinks, sides, appetizers, must be part of training but feels uncomfortable especially when this local is hosting foreigners. Finally, parking should be comped for patrons.

    Sat outside by the water. Great view. Speak to the manager Roy he is vey accomodating. We had a party of 6 and they didn't have any tables available but he moved some things around and made it happen. The food was great. The steaks were great! Crab cakes excellent and cheese cake and coconut cake very good! Our server was yvette and she was attentive. Can't wait to go back.

    i had dinner with my family on august 17th. we had a reservation and we had asked for an outdoor table on the bay, but they told us we had to wait 45-60 minutes, so we preferred to be seated inside. aside for this little let-down, the experience was very good: we opted for the "miami spice menu" which was very good and much more affordable than we expected. the filet mignon was delicious, and so were the desserts. we would definitely recommand s&w.

    We went for early dinner on Sunday. The place is old but nice, the service starting with valet was very kind and welcome. We ask for filet mignon and it was ok, I think the meat was on the freeze because the flavor wasn't great. The pea soup was delicious and dessert (cheesecake) was nice to. We had a table right in the window and the view was nice and funny. The wine list has many option so you can choose the right one.

    Smith and Wollensky is always a great place for special occasions, but you just cannot beat the opportunity to eat here during Miami Spice! Beautiful tasty salads (the wedge with blue cheese and bacon was amazing), a filet that cannot be beat anywhere, and dessert, with, in our case, an excellent wait staff. We make it a family event for six of us every year!

    In from out of town, but well-traveled. Ambiance and view was second to few, if any! The staff was courteous, polite, and appropriate swag for the clientele. They weren't rude, overly stuff, or royal. Great choice...with the one caveat - more seasoning on the food. Prepared excellently, but average seasoning.

    I've been coming to smith and wollensky for the past 5 years. Everytime I go the the food is amazing and service too. This time I went, the food was up to par like I'm used to, but the server was below par. This I believe was due to the miami spice menu the restaurant was offering and it brought in high traffic. I love the food the atmosphere and the service always. Worth going if you love steaks. Try the mac and cheese. Worth every calorie!!

    Went to S&W to try their Miami Spice menu and wow, what a pleasant surprise. Not only did the host provide the MS menu, the server was very pleased when we ordered it. The MS menu was execllent and the filet was incredible. All in all, it was a very nice dinner date. The only thing that would have taken it over the top would have been sitting outside, as there was a full moon and the temperature was just right.....even for a South Florida summer night!

    The food and service at this restaurant was outstanding. Out waiter was very attentive and the food was very good. We went for Miami spice and were surprised about the large portion sizes. We thoroughly enjoyed the salmon and filet migon. The sides were delicious; however. I thought the deserts were lacking as they seemed "just there."
