A word from Wine Depot 555
WD 555 is a wine store, a wine bar and a bistro.
The updated wine list, averaging 300 different choices, showcases superb wines from North and South America, Western Europe, New Zealand and Australia and keeps WD 555 as the largest retailer in South Beach and Miami with unmatched prices. Highlights include coveted bottles of Rosé, Champagne and Grand Cru.
Meanwhile the menu centers on signature dishes from the Mediterranean region with smaller portions meant to compliment WD 555’s wine-tasting experience. The Foie Gras “au torchon”, Escargots, Pata Negra and Filet Mignon Brochettes with Truffle Demi-Glaze are a few of the must-try homemade items.
The warehouse-inspired look, stainless steel bar and glass-enclosed private room bring a contemporary twist to the naturally rustic cellar designs at WD 555. From the exceptional bottles found in the intimate Vintage Room to the Magnum-size ones along the 15-foot wall behind the horseshoe

    Found Wine Depot 555 through Miami Spice. First surprise, in Miami Beach, parking on site. Nice set up, with wine barrel tables set up in and around the wine selections. It is also a wine store. Very nice selection of wines, with some unique finds. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The wine steward helped us locate a wine to our liking. The prices were reasonable, which was another pleasant surprise on the Beach. We had the Miami Spice menu. It was a full menu, they did not skimp on the plates. We both enjoyed every course, and the wine. All the wines they have are available by the glass. They have a very nice courtyard for outside dining. We opted for inside, but plan to try the courtyard next time.

    It's ok. I found the food very fatty with a lot of dressing and olie, so it was difficult to taste the real food. I personally don't like that

    We loved the warm and inviting feeling as we walked into WD 555. The service was superb and staff were very friendly. They helped us choose the perfect wine from a wide variety of wines. We ordered from the Miami Spice Menu and our selection was right on the money. The food was simply delicious... Our waiter was great and made us feel very comfortable. I would recommend WD 555 to my friends and family for any occasion... Thanks for a great dinning experience....

    Went there with wife for start of Miami Spice. Sat inside. We had the salmon prepared with a Moroccan sauce, great dish, appetizers and salad excellent. Chef came out and introduced himself, nice gesture. Good selection of wines. Only downside that there was a group of ugly middle-aged ladies that were bickering about their check, the staff tried to handle it well but these women were celebrating a birthday and were only exceeded in their rudeness by their ugliness. If being visually and verbally offensive was against the law, they would be doing life sentences. Deserts of flourless chocolate cake and apple tart were also excellent. A must try for a mellow south beach dinner, especially if you like wine.

    It is a wine store too. You shop for your wine with the sommelier. They only charge a 7$ cork fee. Tapas are wonderful , we made our entire dinner from them. Everything taste wonderful. Service impeccable.

    La nourriture est excellente le service de notre serveuse Joannie fort apprécié, elle a été du gentillesse et d'une attention remarquable! De plus elle s'en vient à Montréal :). Julien nous a proposé un excellent vin. Moi j'ai adoré le principe de ce promener dans les allées et voir les vins Français les cotations et tout. Plusieurs ont mentionné que c'est une place dispendieuse, effectivement mais ça vaut la peine pour ce retrouver dans un endroit branché, du beau monde et de la nourriture de qualité. Je vous recommande fortement cet endroit.

    This restaurant is one of the best in Miami! I came for my birthday with friends and the staff treated us like family. We felt as if we were the only people in the place, even though it was full! Food was terrific as well! My friend said it was the best meal he had in as long as he can remember and my husband ordered enough for 3 people and almost licked the plates clean. Don't even get me started on the vino.....Thanks Wine Depot!!!!!!

    We figured Wine Depot was the perfect spot for a mid-week dinner: secluded, romantic, and not particularly pretentious. All true... but prepare to pay top dollar for those features alongside mediocre service, small portions, and flavorless sides – plus a corkage fee of $7. While there was nothing glaringly wrong with Wine Depot, once presented with the check, we realized there’s a disconnect between what we paid for and what we got. Wine lovers, go for tapas and buy a good bottle. Mid-week diners, don’t come here hungry – and prepare to leave with your wallet significantly lighter.

    Definitely one of the best restaurant in Miami Beach. The staff is on the top of it and the food is absolutely delicious and creative. The selection of wines is huge and very well done. Probably one of our best evening in Miami. If you like good food and excellent service. Don't hesitate, you are at the right place

    We have been to this restaurant on previous occasions for drinks and a few tapas at the bar. Took some visitors Friday night and had a very unpleasant experience. The restaurant was not crowded yet our waiter seemed annoyed having to serve us. Our orders came out separate and one order was never received . The waiter was very rude and made no attempts at apology. The food was acceptable, nothing special and restaurant was pricey. Off the beaten path in a not so great place unless the service gets better it is not worth it.

    I try to eat here whenever I m in town and bring friends, both local and out of town, as well as colleagues. I ve had several business dinners here and even celebrated a business deal closing in the vault room. This is a great restaurant that you can go to for a casual night out or for a special occasion. The food is fantastic, service is excellent and the wine phenomenal providing excellent value and ambience. Julian, the sommelier is extremely knowledgable and will always guide your table toward a great wine to pair with your meal. Staff and ownership professional, friendly and understand what real service is all about.
