This place isn’t what it used to be. Drinks, appetizers and service were great. The steaks were not great at all. A prime steak should be tender and flavorful. It appears that they are trying to pass off other grades of steak as prime. It’s a shame because Christy’s used to be very good. My husband and I were very disappointed in the steaks and will go elsewhere on future visits to the area.

It took a while before the waiter came to ask us for a drink order and to bring bread. We had to ask what the specials were because it wasn’t told to us until we asked if there were any specials. Everything else was good but for the price one would expect superb service. There were four of us and we were celebrating a birthday. We still left 20% gratuity and it is a very nice restaurant. It was my second time there and a first for our guests.

Sea Bass was the best we have ever had. Ceaser salad was excellent. Don’t order the rack of lamb, tough and not much flavor. Service was average, had to ask for waiter a couple times

Christy's is consistently perfect. That is quite a credential for a restaurant that has a long-established presence and quality reputation. They never rest on their well-deserved laurels. And, their cocktails are prepared perfectly.

Disappointing birthday celebration where I was served probably the worst Prime Rib, end cut ($54.00) I have ever had at Christy's.

Starting with the Black Bean soup, including the Sherry, it was a bland and flavorless serving that required even the most basic salt and pepper to raise the flavor up to bland, in spite of the Sherry.

The Caesar Salad was excellent, as we have always remembered.

It is NOT good when a Prime Rib, end cut, is served absolutely cold, requiring a return to the kitchen for a re-heat, a cardinal sin relative to meats.

Even hotter, the end cut, which is usually charred and crispy, full of flavors and falling apart in tenderness, was void of all of those attributes which are the reason for ordering an end-cut.

The entire dining experience was not up the the quality of Christie’s through the many years it has been here.
Our food was pretty bad. Lamb chops used to be thick, juicy and meaty. Now they are skinny and fatty. Mine was also almost raw.
The Caesar salad, which we now paid extra for, had so much dressing on it that it was floating on the plate.
The baked potato was not cooked enough.
The desert was not as described on the menu.
We could not understand the waiter and the room was so noisy that we could not hear each other.
What a disappointment. I will not go back to Christie’s. There are so many other better decisions Ning choices in the area for good meals.
I do not mind paying top dollar for good food and pheasant dining experiences. The only ingredient that evening had was the top dollar part.

You can’t serve Costco meat and then charge Prime 112 prices. I am a Gables resident, and this well known institution has to step up its game. I will not return ....not for a long time.

I went to Christy's for my 62nd Birthday. I have been to Christy's several times before, but many years ago and I wanted something classic and vintage to celebrate my milestone birthday. I. We started with Caesar's salads and Lobster bisque. The Lobster bisque was terrific tasting, with just the right amounts of sherry and spice although it was a bit frugal on the lobster meat. The Caesar's salads were just OK...nothing like I remember, when they used to prepare the salad from scratch at your table side. They gave us a small basket of cold pre sliced bread and a small plate with dipping oil...again, just ok, but not the tasty loaf on a cutting board of yore. I ordered the 8 oz Filet Mignon which came with a small head of baked garlic on a stark plate. Steak was cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the snapper plate, that although tasty, was a very small serving, like a child's. He was disappointed. My daughter's burger was tasty and cooked well. Finished with Baked Alaska which was just ok, since the cake bottom was dry. Overall, a pleasant, but not GREAT experience.

THE SERVICE WAS SIMPLY EXCELLENT. HOWEVER, I HAVE BEEN VISITING CHRISTY'S SINCE IT OPENS ITS DOORS THUS I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ALL THE CHANGES AND EXPERIENCES AT THIS RESTAURANT. FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF THE ITEMS THAT I NOTICED:
1. THE BREAD WAS TERRIBLE IT IS NOW A CHEAP VERSION OF SLICE BREAD
2. THE ESCARGOT WAS A GOOD AS ALWAYS, BUT THE BREAD AGAIN WAS CHANGED TO THREE=[3] PIECES OF SKICED BREAD WITH GARLIC.
3. THE CEASAR SALAD THAT WAS OFFERED BEFORE WITH OR WITH OUT ANCHOVIES AS PART OF THE MAIN COURSE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND HAS TO BE PURCHASED.
4. AND FINALLY MY FAVORITE. THE PRIME RIB STEAK HAD A HUGE BONE WHICH I GUESS IS PART OF THE TOTAL OUNCES SHOWN ON THE MENU.

I JUST HOPE THAT SOMEONE READS MY COMMENTS SO THAT CHRISTY'S CONTINUES TO BE OF THE BEST DINING EXPERIENCES IN CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA...

Christy’s used to be our favorite restaurant. But the last two visits we have seen a huge decline in the service, food quality and overall experience. My black bean soup was thick as paste, the famous Cesaer salad had excessive dressing to the point that the salad was wilted. In the 30 years we have been going to the restaurant, I have never had children running around, throwing silly string at each other, loudly yelling & laying on the floor. No one from staff attempted to stop it. Awful experience for a anniversary/birthday celebration and a bill over $200.
This will be our last time!

Extremely disappointed at the food quality and the loudness in the restaurant. There was a time that I had Christy’s as my favorite restaurant. The Baked Alaska wasn’t remotely close to what it used to be. The steak was very salty and the sea bass had no taste. Definitely not interested in coming back and I will not recommend.

This is our "go to" for a nice romantic dinner. Since it was around Valentine's it was crowded, which is why the noise level was up a bit. The lamb and fried Brussel sprouts were excellent ad was the key lime pie.

It was disappointing. I know it’s known for it’s steak but we had seafood and it was just not fine dining quality . The food was very bland and the presentation was lacking as well. We had valiant as a starter and it had no flavor. Then I ordered one of the specials which was 2 lobster tails. They came on a plate with broccoli and a small container of seasoned butter, which basically was a lot of parsley and garlic. The lobster had no seasoning so the butter helped but I had to ask for another because I had to use it for the broccoli as well.

Also , the staff should be trained to bring you a black napkin without asking and the response should not be No Problem when you say Thank you.
