Christie’s continues to be a classic choice for dining in the Gables. Perfect for special occasions /celebrations or just date night with your spouse or significant other.
The menu is classic and the portions are healthy —- as it should be when you’re splurging $$$$.
The service was as expected for this place — excellent ...and compliments to the bartender for the best the dirty martini!
The wine list offered a good selection and varied pricing depending on what one wants to pay. We loved the tuna tartar - perfect for 2 to share.
The quality of chateaubriand cut was impecable and it was cooked to perfection, nicely presented and prepared at table side by our waiter. Don’t forget their classic Baked Alaskan for dessert.
We will be back ....

For starters the place looks great. Its low lit ambience was perfect for a date night and the volume of the other patrons was low enough so you can hear each other but didn’t feel like a library. Our server was very knowledgeable and suggested a great meal. The bar makes a good old fashioned too. A little pricey, but that’s the way it goes.

Had a bad experience! Steaks were cold,
service was terrible... Very very disappointing.
I had recalled this having been a great restaurant
at one time years ago. I tried to find a website
to express my disappointment to Christys
but found only a phone number. Please
communicate my message to them.

Thank you, R. Gracia, M.D.

We frequent this restaurant often and the food never disappoints The ambiance is lovely and is well maintained. There are some waiters that are better than others. The last 2 times we went we had the same waiter and he was average. He forgot our appetizer and was not what we expect there. That being said, the food and ambiance never disappoint!

I hate to write a bad review and I understand it was a holiday, but the service was very lacking. I made reservations and was there early, but we couldn't be seated and had to sit at the bar, while others without a reservation were seated before us. Also, by the time we were seated we were starving and wanted to order, but it took another 30min for appetizers. It was a full hour before dinner arrived, and the plates were hot but the food had been sitting. I asked the waiter twice for tea, finally a visit brought it. The food is always excellent but either being overwhelmed or lack of concern in general made the service for me sub par. I don't know if we will be back and definitely not on a holiday.

We went on Christmas Day for dinner.
They got our order wrong but they made up for it and did not charge us
for the wrong plate. That was extremely nice of them !!!
Their food is usually very good and their service is also great.
I recommend you try it if you have not been there.

"We waited for our table for about 15 minutes, no explanation.
Once our table was ready, it took a few more minutes to finally get somebody to help us.
My steak was overcoocked, I did not return it because since we arrived a few minutes earlier + the long waiting + more waiting to be helped + plus the time it took our food to arrive...
Prices are really fat, in my personal case it did not match what they offer.
I will not visit this place again.

The service was wonderful. I️ would add a bit more flavor to the sirloin burger. I️t was missing some sort of sauce to give it that additional moisture that I️ believe it needed.

Ordered filet on the bone special of the day. It was overcooked
& seasoned with too much salt & pepper. On top of that it
Was pricey $ 68.00 for the filet. I should have ordered the
8 ounce like my wife did which was perfectly cooked
& $ 38.00. It was a a disappointment, good bottle of wine
With a bad steak.

Overall OK. We were staying in South Beach and decided to give it a try before the Heat game. The ambiance definitely fits our preferred "old school" steakhouse preference.

We sat unattended for about 10 minutes, but no big deal for us in that we were not in a hurry. The surf and turf special was wonderful! Steak cooked to perfection. An old, over served couple were sat near us about half-way through our meal. This killed our experience completely.

Christy's is a gem! It is elegant, the food is superb and I always enjoy dinner there, whether with friends or clients. It suffers from not being the latest "Hot Spot," but is better than all of those put together! Our waiter, who may have been new and came from Joe's Stone Crabs, where they can be rude to patrons, lacked the usual courteous service you get at Christy's. Hopefully, he will learn to be friendlier, more accommodating, or be gone. Don't let that keep you away.

I had made reservations for 8:30 PM. When we arrived we had to wait almost one hour. The issue they gave us is that they had a holiday party that took half of the restaurant. I think if they knew they had this party, then they should have called their reservations and explained the issue and let the person make a decision to cancel or come at a later time. I think they would have been more proactive about it.

We've been going to Christy's regularly for the last 4 years, which was when I moved to Miami.
Their food is excellent, their menu gives you an excellent range of foods to choose from, their wait staff is professional but friendly and accommodating. Delicious and well prepared food, excellent service, a relaxed environment, a bit pricey but you get excellent value for your money. What more could you want?

We got offered a special for a tomahawk steak with 2 lobster tails and a side dish for 120. Which is a great deal. We ate like king and queen as the steak was DELICIOUS!! So were the lobster and the side of cream of corn was superb. We have never left happier from a great meal.

Second time there and we were disappointed. We visited for our anniversary.
Our first visit was WONDERFUL. But not this time, unfortunately.
First of all, the table next to us had a very loud lady who kept laughing and trying to draw attention to herself. Very obnoxious. Second, and more importantly, my husband's steak was undercooked. We had to send our food back. The second time around, it was still undercooked. The manager came by and we explained and he was trying to convince us that it wasn't undercooked when it clearly was. If you are paying $50+ for steak only (no sides), it should be perfect.
On the bright side, our waiter was excellent and our dessert (alaskan) was delicious.

I have been a customer of Christy's for 35 years and it is now awful. Went for Thanksgiving Dinner with friends and have been to Thanksgiving Dinner in past years, but will never go back.

Didn't order the turkey meal, but did order Prime Rib...meat was tough, not cooked enough had to send it back. Shrimp cocktail was terrible, tasted old. Had to ask for condiments to go with food. Bread with no butter, now just small plate of olive oil...really! My lamb was not good, side was some overcooked mushrooms. All sides are extra. Wouldn't dare order desert.

I would not recommend Christy's, it's been a landmark, but definately is not what it used to be.

I asked if there was vegetarian for me and they told me to pick sides. I picked mushrooms and potatoe skins. The skins were burnt. Our bill came out to over $ 300.00 and it was totally not worth it at all. We were very disappointed. Too bad.
