    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.

    This was our first time at this location. Love the view from our table (although it was raining). We sat at the outside bar for an after dinner drink. It was nice to go from having a nice quiet dinner to a little more "happen" spot outdoors near the water.

    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.

    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..

    Food, dessert, drinks, ambiance, view were excellent. Service was poor at best, felt like waiter was ignoring us from the moment we sat down. When politely questioned about apparent indifference to waiting on our table the response was " several tables came all at once". when we sat down the table to left was eating dinner, table to the right was ordering- we were the waiter's 3rd table, hardly a mob scene. This indifference and lack of attentiveness continued throughout dinner. Waiter never asked if we were enjoying our meal. The staff other than the waiter were very polite and attentive. I have eaten at S&W in NYC on numerous occasions and have never had poor service. Given all the restaurants in Miami doubt we will return.

    Great neighborhood, too. unfortunately, it was dark when we went, but I imagine the views are spectacular during daylight hours. The food & service are outstanding. Steaks cooked to perfection! It's VERY pricey, though, even to park!! $10 to valet park after spending around $200 for dinner!! Outrageous!!

    I booked this reservation for my mom & sisters birthday. On my reservation I specified that it was for a birthday and when I arrived I was not asked. We were seated in a secluded back corner of the restaurant which I thought was going to be a good thing for somewhat privacy. It turned out being that we were kind of ignored. I'm not sure if the waiter had other tables in a different section of the restaurant but it was a bit annoying having to wait longer for our food. The food was not our of this world either. I was expecting really exceptional food being that it's a fine dining restaurant. The best thing we had was the bread and the dessert. We didn't get our entrees how we ordered and the waiter didn't ask. I would not visit again.

    I was so disappointed in my dining experience. The experience started with being seated with no one coming to the table for an extended time and when I flagged a waiter he said he would bring our menus but was not our waiter. Within just a few minutes he was back as our waiter, really?Then the food was tasteless ... The table shared an appetizer of stuffed shrimp which were over cooked and tasteless. I ordered the bone in filet and my dining mate ordered the rib eye. I ordered mine medium and the rib eye was ordered medium rare - both were tasteless. None of the flavor one would expect for a steak costing over $50 each. The sides were unmemorable at best. The chocolate cake was a step above Sara Lee. Go north to Boca to Abe and Louies.

    Although the meal was enjoying, I do have to say it began with a bit of a mixup. After checking in for my reservations, I was asked if I wanted to sit indoors or outdoors. Naturally, the night was beautiful so I said outdoors. We were escorted to the outside location and directed to check in with the maître d, upon checking in he told us there was an hour wait for siting outside. Why wouldn't the inside host tell me this upon check in? He made us walk all the way to be told we had to wait an hour. We nixed the outside seating and went back inside to request indoor accommodations. Again, I think guests should be told that, if you request outdoor seating, there is another wait time. It just started the night off on the wrong foot.

    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!!!
