    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.

    Go here for an early dinner while there is still daylight. The view is incomparable. All table face the Government Cut and you can view all kinds of boats, yachts, cruise ships. Spectacular! The food is very good with the typical Steakhouse menu and typical Steakhouse prices but it is all worth it. We have eaten here many times over the last 15 years and will go back again. We have never been disappointed.

    We recently had dinner at Smith & Wollensky in Miami Beach, and we sampled the Miami Spice menu. Overall the food was very good. The service was impeccable, and fast too. We sat in a room with windows facing the water and during the day, the view must be beautiful. There were a few special occasions celebrated there, so it is a nice place to meet an intimate group of friends/family, and have a nice time. It's good for couples too. And if you're just looking to have a few drinks, they're bar area was quite lively and I believe open later than the dining room. I would definitely visit this restaurant again.

    The scenic view overlooking the waterway was beautiful as usual. The roasted garlic soup was excellent. Unfortunately that could not be said for the other dishes. The ribeye carpaccio had a strange texture and was not very pleasing. The steak sandwich had the consistency of chopped meat and was too thin to cook rare as ordered. The bun was also quite greasy. The service was good except they brought the entree before the soup Finally the wine week special - 10 wines for $20 was not up to its usual excellence. Only a couple of the wines were actually decent, and the price has gone up from $10 and $15 during past wine events.

    I was pretty disappointed to have chosen this restaurant for my birthday celebration. The table we had wasn't even set completely.. We had to wait forever for some silverware and bread plates after receiving the bread, when we did they just put the bulk on the table, not even individually. The service was extremely slow between courses.. By the time we got our desserts we had been there for 2 hrs and had begun our digestion!!! The waiters were all running around like if they were super stressed! And it wasn't that full! The food I have to admit was very good, but not so different from other good restaurants, the service would have made the difference. Overall, disappointing.

    Our group of 12 was very pleased with the food except 1 person's steak was charred. Although that person decided to eat her charred steak, I would have sent it back. Our service was also very good except for trying to get our water refilled. It took way too long each time we asked for refills and I expect refills to be a given without having to ask for them. There was also a fast electrical power outage from a rainstorm and I'm not sure if that was the reason for our checks taking so long to process, but overall, our dining experience was very good. Our waiter was very patient with our big group whom most arrived late for our dining reservations. We LOVE the Miami Spice menu options at Smith & Wollensky and go back every year.

    And by saying this I am not sure if eating inside had the same service but I would like to think the food is the same steaks were not cooked to how we ordered also once our beverage were complete waiter took glass away from table and left us dry . Not sure if because we ordered from the Miami spice menu if that's why then our service and the way we were treated changed . The amount of stray cats outside is also disturbing.

    Haven’t been to a Smith and Wollensky for 5 years and after this experience will never go to any Smith and Wollensky again! We had the Miami Spice menu and the pea soup was nothing like it used to be, the steak was tasteless, the desserts were as average as can be. The waiter at the end mentioned that we shouldn’t have ordered from the Miami Spice menu so that makes me suspect the cut of meat was not Prime, it couldn’t have been.

    I'll start by saying we were a group of 15 so I know that's difficullt but it was a Wednesday night and the restaurant was pretty empty.After we were seated, we waited 20 min before we had to call our server and ask for drinks.After that everything came out quickly.Several of us ordered from the Miami Spice menu and they didn't bring out our side, we had to ask the server and they brought it out after we had finished our entree.We split the checks and that was a disaster, several of us had errors, I was charged for someone else's drinks, and the server said he couldn't change anything because he had already closed the check, that we should pay each other. Overall the food was great, but at the price I was expecting great service also.

    We tried the Miami Spice menu. Reading all the good reviews about the restaurant, I believe I made a wrong choice because the food was nothing special. In addition, our waiter was impacient and not attentive. But we enjoyed our dinner mostly because the spectacular view and ambiance. This is a great place to a special occasion.

    They are operating a bait and switch for Miami Spice . The Filet they serve is inferior to the regular filet and they do not disclose it. The meat was garbage that my dog enjoyed when I brought most of it home. It was 3rd rate. The soup, split pea, and the salad , tomato heirloom were both very nice though. The cheese cake desert was also good. However the meat was inedible so for that they get the POOR rating. As I live nearby, I ran into a chef leaving at the end of the night the next day and asked him about it and he confirmed that the filet is different and of poorer quality.

    Always a fabulous night out, drinks were wonderful, food was delish, even the tables around us were great to chat with. Only thing I didn't like was even though I made reservations, when I arrived I was told that was only for indoors, reservations are not valid for the outdoor dining which is the major draw. Think this should be listed somewhere, not only did I not receive my Open Table credit, but I then had to get on a list and wait an hour to be seated. I'd like to get the credit for this dining experience and also to have their site updated. THank you!! Great night out, Miami Spice Menu was amazing =)

    Our group had mixed food needs and likes and Smith and Wollensky could adjust to our needs. The meat lovers had their steak, the fish was tasty and for the vegans the restaurant made up a vegetable platter (not on the menu) and we added the baked potato with olive oil etc instead of milk products. My only request would be they add a fruit dessert for those who don't want too much refined sugar.

    We have enjoyed this restaurant on several occasions and find it most advantageous to make reservations, especially in the seasonal months and/or on special occasions such as Valentine's Day. They are noted for their steaks and they are exceptional! We also tried the crab cake appetizer. It is all crab and not full of fillers, like many restaurants. It is superb. The food is prepared to order and the waiters are very attentive but no so much as to hover.

    Located inside the park that abuts the Miami Seaport entrance, with Fisher island on the other side, thus excellent views. Valet parking $10. Steak was cooked properly, I have it Pittsburgh rare and most place just can't do that, this one had no problem. Wines were nothing special and seriously over price, but martinis were good. We were seated inside but outside seating had kids on one side, and a happy happy hour crowd on the other. There was a happy hour crowd inside too, I noticed on our way out. Service was perfect. If you are not scared of the price, and like high end restaurants then this one beats the others because of the location.

    The food was good…..Service was also BUT….we were very rushed. My wife ordered a drink which came with the appetizer. She asked the waiter to hold off the main course but as soon as they took our appetizer plate the main course was there. They took it back to keep warm. If we had eaten the main course then and there it would have been a 10 minute meal..and not a fine dining experience. Maybe it was because we ordered the Miami Spice dinner..
