    Although we had a reservation, it was for inside and we wanted to sit outside and watch the cruise liners depart Miami. This caused an one hour delay. What we were not told was that there was an upstairs which had a covered porch which would have been better for viewing. The food was great along with the service, once seated, but future diners should know there are options.

    Our food was great and the outside dining at night right on the causeway was spectacular. The service was terrible. We ordered drinks and when mine was empty the waiter never came back to see if I wanted another. I had to flag him down for more water and it took him 20 minutes to brings any even though he walked right by me several times with pitcher of water. As a matter of fact he had very little to do with us after taking our order. We had to ask for bread and weren't offered any extra and other people brought us all of our food. I hope it was just that server. When you are spending that type of money you do not want to be ignored.

    Made reservations in advance because we were coming in from out of town. Called to request a nice table overlooking the water because it was my husband's birthday. We were welcomed happily at the front desk by the manager. He was wonderful and friendly!!! Our table was fantastic!! Thank you to him for accommodating us! Our server, Alberto was great! He was very knowledgeable about the food and the great wines. He was very friendly, attentive and personable! After we finished dinner he brought a birthday desert!! Loved every minute we were there! We had drinks at the outdoor bar after dinner and it was friendly and great service as well. Will go again the next time we are in Miami!!

    One of the only places on Miami Beach where you can sit and have very good food on the water. Fun watching cruise ships sail out - much better than a typical dark steak house. Meats were quality and cooked perfect. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    From the moment my group was welcomed we knew we made a good decision to come here. We enjoyed some very nice wine accompanied by the cold seafood towers. Each person had something different for our entree. I personally am not a meat lover but the guests I were with had enjoyed their steaks. My lobster was cut for me so I enjoyed just eating. All in all it was a great pic

    I ordered an over 50$ 24oz bone-in steak, assumimg that after ordering two appetizers, the two of us could share. Half of it was bone, 25% was fat and only 25% was edible meat that because of the proximity of bone and fat, should have been great. It was not. I am a regular at Smith & Wollensky and the only meat that I would recommend is the tenderloin. I would even go as far as to say that their sea food is better than their meat. I think that all the thing about dry aged beef that they use to charge plenty, is overrated. But the view and location are great. Their best item is the tenderloin with a lobster tail.

    Had 7pm reservation but decided to dine outdoors, waited an hour to be seated but it was a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Miami. Had a couple caipirinhas @ the bar, pretty good. Seated around 8. Ordered fried calamari, very good; steaks were obviously delicious, cooked perfectly & seasoned just right. Must try truffle Mac n cheese. Great ambience dining on the river front. Only down side for us were the cats roaming the outdoor area. They don't really bother & others actually fed & played with them, but not really a nice addition when your dining out especially when your having a $200+ dinner. Dress code, very casual, some in jeans & a t-shirt with flip flips, not overly dressy. Service was great. Thank you to the outdoor host Chris.

    My girlfriend and I celebrated our anniversary by sitting outside by the water. We had signature drinks, and started with the seafood platter that was out of this world. We followed that with the delicious and mouthwatering Lobster Mango Salad, and finished withe the incredible Coffee Cocoa Rubbed Filet. Just as we were ready to order dessert, the Manager surprised us with a sensational chocolate cake topped with Vanilla Ice cream and chocolate syrup mixed with blueberries and strawberries with a candle on it - gave us a card and wished us a Happy Anniversary. So classy of them and so thoughtful. What an amazing all around dining experience. !

    They were very acommodating. I had a 930 reservation, but got a flat tire on the way. I called at 9 and they pushed back my reservation to 1030. The food was amazing and i like the ambiance, but the service was not up to par. The waiter was not that great. He didn't seem to be interested in my table. It seemed as though he was a little arrogant almost. His attitude didn't change until the end of dinner.

    On this particular visit, the service was terribly off and very slow, and the food was not as good as usual. Our waiter was either unable to hear us or didn't understand what we were saying, because he walked away several times while one of us was speaking to him. One of the salads was incorrect but we took it because we had been waiting for so long. At one point, the waiter refilled my gin & tonic with water, instead of my water glass. When we finally arrived at dessert, the coconut cake was a disappointment - dryer than usual, with hardly any mango sauce, and the coconut tuile was overbaked and burned. Luckily we were with good friends and enjoyed ourselve in spite of the many service bumbles.

    Had been to the one on NY years ago, but had no idea this one in Miami existed. Beautiful vibrant and scenic view. Was told to get a table outside but unfortunately, we we were unable but did get A table ny the window to observe the beautiful view and very vibrant bar and outdoor dining. Great steak and just an overall great experience. Would definitely go back but get a table outside.

    Looking for a nice dinner spot with my wife, we ended up again at Smith & Wollensky, South Point Miami. This is an excelent restaurant overall, a bit pricey but worth it. Solid, reliable, almost never fails. A sure shot. Steak is wonderful, drinks and wine very decent, although expensive. Open Table did a very efficient job, again!

    Smith and Wollensky knows what they are doing. The mussels are in a creamy out of this world broth. The truffle mac and cheese is done to perfection. The filet mignon au poivre is excellent. Split an appetizer, split the 14oz filet mignon, share a veggie and definitely order the truffle mac and cheese. For two people it is the perfect amount of food, won't break the bank, and there might be a little leftover.

    Service was excellent. My husband and I celebrated our 5th anniversary there with our 2 year old daughter. The staff were very friendly and made our night a great one. The food was nothing short of spectacular. The prices are grandiose, but you do get what you pay for. We had the ny sirloin and the filet minon. They were both very tasty, as were the sides of creamed spinach and grilled mushrooms The desserts were delicious as well - coconut sponge cake and carrot cake.

    Went during Miami Spice Month, on Sept. 29, 2014 (ended Sept. 30th), and the menu choices were great! The tomato brutatta appetizer was full of flavor, yet light. I decided to try their Crab Cakes with cognac mustard and ginger sauce for the first time, when I was informed they were "baked", as my boyfriend was going to order the 8 oz. filet mignon with bernaise sauce, and we figured we could share to have our own "Surf and Turf" dish. The filet was cooked to perfection (med. rare) and came with delicious whipped potatoes, and crab cakes were flaky beyond belief! Smith & Wollensky Chardonnay, and for dessert, cheesecake with raspberry sauce! We sat outside in a covered section, as it was raining, next to the water! Scenic and Romantic!

    After making reservations for a party of 6, we arrived to find they don't take reservations to sit outside. Thanks to a breathtaking view, friendly outside bar, and enjoyable people watching, the 45 minutes flew by and we were seated outside to continue watching the sunset on the most southern point of the beach. The food was so good, they even impressed our non steak eaters with their chicken & salmon. Special thanks to Jeff at the bar for being so friendly even in the sea of beautiful people keeping the bar busy. We definitely recommend trying this place at least once in your lifetime!

    We had one server that was good & 3 others that were poor. We were asked to give our dessert order in the middle of eating our main course -very rude. They then bought desert without clearing our table. We ordered off the Miami Spice menu ( which were food stained and messy looking) & we are all no alcohol drinkers so maybe they thought we were not worth serving well. Big mistake 4 out of our party live in South Beach and are regular dinners and have always recommended this restaurant to visitors as well as well as visited many times before but this was (other than our main server) the worst experience . If you consider Miami Spice patrons as lower than regular customers don't offer the menu or take part in this event what a shame.

    My wife, my newborn and I looked for a special dinner. The food was great, but pricey. Big portions. We were not given a special attention or place for our little celebration although I requested when I made the reservation. We were sitted by the exit door. The waiter and its crew were very friendly to us, however a bit careless, our only side dish came when we were finishing the main course after having told the waiter that we no longer want it, so we couldn't enjoy it with the food, but still pay for it.

    We booked a table outside and it was wonderful! Good bartenders who know how to mix a drink that is not on their menu. Very nice food and big portions - you wont leave hungry! Only downside was the desert, where I ordered a blueberry crumble and expected a steamy, juicy desert with a crispy top - instead they served a flat and cold tart - before you order desert, check how it served, so that you know what to expect.
