    Davvero un bel posto con un atmosfera tra il romantico e il classico. Il servizio è ottimo e l ambiente relax. I prezzi sono ok (a capodanno 50$ a testa con cucina curata). Il caffè 6$ però mi è sembrato un po' esagerato. Vabbè mi avete fregato una volta ;-)

    This was our first visit to Vesper in a year, and it definitely won't be our last. Perfect spot for outdoor dining on a warm night, and the new, pared-down menu is a treat--ESPECIALLY the spicy shrimp tacos!

    While the service was excellent unfortunately the food was not very good. My meat was tough and had a burnt flavor and the sides were inedible. I don't think anyone we were with was very impressed. It is a shame because the hotel the restaurant is in is very cool looking and this could really top off the setting.

    Dined on 8/9/2012
    The Dining Room in the gorgeous Shelborne Hotel has the same lovingly prepared, fresh, and interesting nouveau Latin cuisine that made it a foodies' delight in its original spot south of fifth. The tomato salad with tomato sorbet (sounds weird but tastes wonderful), cobia ceviche (as good as it can be), superb duck salad, spicy and light fish and seafood soup, and the moist and tender fresh branzino entre we had were perfect. The new location's outdoor dining is a major upgrade--stunning, overlooking the pool--while the indoors seating is comfortable, with muted lighting. The full bar is a nice addition, but the new wine list needs more lower price options. Service was attentive, skillful, and fast during our weekday visit.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2002VIP
    Dined on 8/4/2012
    The original Dining Room in its own private space was a gem. The move to Vesper has thrown everything into turmoil -- they were 45 minutes late seating us for our 9pm reservation, we never had a single member of the waitstaff approach our table (the manager ultimately took our order), and the food was bland and missing some of its key ingredients. I hope that the restaurant improves as they adjust to the new space. Until then, I'm not keen to return.

    If you are the type that likes a place that accepts your 8:30 reservation, give every table they promise away to others, that likes to get seated at 10pm, get your food at 11pm. If you like to not be disturbed after your food arrives to make sure it came as you ordered it. If you dont like busboys asking if you want bread or water for the first 40 minutes of sitting, if you enjoy very expensive prices regardless if it's what y if you ordered. The this place is for you!!!! Enjoy! We will not be back..... Dining room, thanks for the horrible date night out with my gf.

    Outdoor dining area is beautiful. The waitstaff was friendly even if a little inexperienced. Ceviche and tuna tartare were delicious. They turned the giant-sized TV on at the bar, even though nobody (except the staff) was watching and it completely ruined the atmosphere and the mood. KEEP THE TV OFF. Better yet, get rid of it!

    Went here from brunch and the tables outdoors overview the hip pool area. It's great for those who want to eat outdoors without being in the hot sun a your area is covered. The food was great. The service was excellent. I plan to go to Vesper again for a meal. Only drawback is the parking infront of hotel is always full due to the beach access. The next option is the valet at $20 and there is no reduction if you dine at the restaurant. Otherwise Vesper is great!

    I've heard good things about Vesper - the space was a pretty, art deco room and the food is supposed to be good. Unfortunately when we arrived for our confirmed Sunday brunch reservation we discovered that the restaurant was not open until dinner! No one apologised or offered an explanation as to why we had a reservation for a time when the restaurant was not serving - they simply advised us to go their other restaurant Lucy's which turned out to be a pool bar. Judging by the clientele in the pool at the Shelbourne it was the sort of place one might expect to find the cast of the Jersey Shore doing body shots. People say the food at Vesper is good but I'd rather not eat with Snooki or the Situation so I probably will never find out

    My girlfriends and I decided to go here after seeing a comedy show at the Fillmore theater. We sat outside and it was fun watching everyone sitting poolside and enjoying their drinks by the bar. The food was amazing! The steaks were cooked to perfection, and the side cart items were big enough for us to share. The portions were not huge, but everyone knows that's South Beach. However, by no means did we leave hungry. Dessert was small, wish it could've been a little bigger. The decor was nice, and the service was great. Everyone was very attentive. All in all, we enjoyed it and definitely plan on going back.

    Took my dad and his new fiancé for a celebratory dinner. It’s a unique dinning in which you walk through the kitchen before being seated (yes, the kitchen is very clean!). We started with the chicken wings.. BEST Appetizer in South Beach, I highly recommend it. The gilled bronzino was delicious, and cooked to perfection. We sat inside which was nice if you are on an intimate date and looking for a spot to converse, otherwise I’d recommend sitting outdoors which really has a fun vibe, especially on a Tuesday night.

    Vesper was as advertised. Pretty chic atmosphere as we ate in the outdoor area by the pool. Got the tour thru the kitchen to see the dining room inside, but I'd only suggest that if you want a very private dinner. The "nightlife manager" was very pleasant and made us feel like we were honored guests. The Lincoln Road Mall area is nearby, so we parked there (beware South Beach parking is $15-20 to park in private lots), but Lincoln Road is a busy place worth seeing if you dine at Vesper.

    Food was OK. Little too heavy on the salt...especially on spinach and sweet potatoe fries. Very weird entry way...must walk through kitchen to get to restaurant. Seems to me someone should have designed a better entry to the restaurant. Service was good, however there were only 3 other tables occupied during our 2 hour dinner there.

    The service was outstanding starting with the moment we walked up to the host station. The host who seated us was friendly and gave us a tour of the joint before asking us where we wanted to sit. The manager checked on us at while we were finishing up our meal, but the waiter was adorable and had taken very good care of us. I had the special, which was outstanding. The appetizers were very good as well. I would definitley go back.

    We loved this restaurant! The setting is beautiful both inside and out and we loved the mural on the wall of the First Miss America Pageant held at the Shelbourne Hotel around 1941 (according to our waiter). The service was excellent and better than we usually find in Miami. But best of all was the food, a great menu, with excellent chicken wings as a starter, large portions, fantastic Cioppino, Salmon and Chicken. The music level did get louder as the evening went on, but the "eye candy" was fun as this is clearly a hot spot. All in all a great experience with excellent food and we will definitely return!

    We fully enjoyed our experience. We were there Friday and Saturday night of the same weekend. Friday night was totally rocking and Saturday night it was very quiet. Both nights the food and the service was very good. The General Manger, Miguel, was very attentive. In addition, the Director of Nightlife, Granville, was also very accommodating. We enjoyed both nights, even thought they were completely different experiences. As far as specifics, the "fall off the bone" chicken wings were delicious and fell off the bone, the ceasar, the lobster bisque, and the skirt steak were all delicious. And last but not least, the donuts were delicious!!
