We have already recommended Chef Rolf's Tuna Seafood restaurant to quite a few friends, especially since it's near our neighborhood and easy to get to. The food is quite tasty, portions are large and the staff is more than ready to help and assist.
We went there to try the Miami Spice menu and without a doubt it is one of the best offered of the many restaurants. Loved the varied selections to choose from and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

My husband and I dined there early on a weekday evening when it was relatively quiet. Our wait person, Amy, was delightful and wore many hats: server, bartender and hostess. Great job!

We'll be back during season.

Dining: presentation, preparation, atmosphere, service, and value. We consider Ralph's to be one of the top dining experiences in North Dade. We were not for want. The quality is the best and has been consistent. Attentive personnel who take that extra step to make your dining experience one which you will joyfully remember and hope that your will return. A real local's secret.
Our thanks goes out to Ralph.

Food was delicious, service was amazing the location is getting a bit run down hopefully they remodel the bathroom area soon. However they probably have one of the best Miami spice around!

Husbae and I went as a part of our monthly date night. It was hands down the best 4 course meal we have had in a LONG time. I had the bacon wrapped scallops and he had a shrimp salad for our appetizer . Our intermezzo was delightful! Then we had our entree and when I say BABY IT WAS EVERYTHING!! He had the double cut pork chop and I had the whole snapper broiled. It was too much for either one of us to finish and I’m pregnant! Then we concluded with dessert. I had the key lime pie and hubby had a peach strudel. Don’t let this little gem fool you, it might not look like much on the outside but it is DEFINITELY worth the trip

The food at Chef Rolf's Tuna's Seafood Restaurant was very good. I would not hesitate to return there again in the near future. Everything we ate was really flavorful and also beautifully served. The dessert was homemade and delicious! My only negative comment is that the service was a bit slow as they appeared to be short-handed.

We made reservations for an early mother’s day dinner. We drove up to the restaurant and it’s tucked away on a Main Street. The area looked kinda shady. As we entered the restaurant, we saw what looked like the catches of the day in the fridge. The restaurant was dimly lit. We had a great server. We ordered drinks, appetizers and main meals. Bacon wrapped scallops, needed more searing but and the bacon-scallop ratio was off. The crab cakes were great. Calamari was excellent. The salmon dinner was excellent. Taste of the dishes were very good but the plating was not the best. However I would come back here if in the neighborhood.

Our 10th time back Oysters and Clams always the BEST! The dinners and desserts are outstanding. The decor is nothing to look at the ambiance is average, but we don't care. The staff treats us like family.

They didn’t have stone crabs which was disappointing but the rest of their options were very good. Excellent oysters and drinks were well done.
Nice neighborhood find.

The lobster/crab cakes (2) were excellent. the mussels were great and plentiful, salad was a good size. The Cioppino was chuck full of seafood and very tasty, veal oscar was properly cooked and the half lobster tail was a welcome change from crab meat that most restaurants serve. The peach melba was an excellent ending to a great meal.

Appearance was very dated which made us concerned initially. Although the menus were tattered, they were sophisticated and nicely done. The selections amazing! Our waitress who did not introduce herself giggled with each response she gave. She was not very informative or helpful with selections, but at the same time very pleasant. The food was great. From the warm rolls with garlic butter, bacon wrapped scallops, ahi tuna, fettuccine Alfredo, broiled scallops, the meal was amazing! Top notch chef!

This was a one-of-a-kind all around spectacular experience from the atmosphere to the kind wait staff. The food was probably some of the best we’ve had.

The only caution tho is the dress code says “smart casual” and it’s actually dress/business casual. They didn’t mind at all that we were wearing shorts, however everyone else was a little more dressed up. There were a lot of locals eating there-was worth every dollar spent!

This restaurant was a fantastic find! The food was fresh, cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. In reserving for the diner, I was betting on the fact that the Chef was Swiss and that the food would be great. I was right! Our waiter was perfect, great suggestion and his timing was always impeccable. I've already recommended this place to family and friends. Don't miss it

I really enjoyed Chef Rolf’s two years ago, coming back - it was not the same. The ambiance was ok, our waitress was friendly but side tracked (restaurant was not busy), the food while hot and generally delicious missed on the memory/enjoyable experience I had had previously. I gave four stars, the issue was probably more my expectations not a reflection of what was received.

Overall the experience was fine. The waitress seemed a little overwhelmed. She didn't allow me to approve the wine before she started to pour it and she actually started pouring it in the ice bucket by mistake. She kept passing by saying "looking good" to herself instead of asking how we were, otherwise the service was ok. The food was excellent, as was the other wait staff.
