My daughters 18th Bday and this was our last stop before we left Miami. I wish it had been my 1st spot because if so i would have went twice. The atmosphere was perfect we sat outside and it was beautiful.

My family had dinner at new year and was really nice. There was a special menu and everething was fine. My son had a filet mignon and he said " the most tasteful i eat during my holidays". We loved the food, the ambiance, the dessert. After dinner we walked 5 or 6 blocks and we watched the fireworks. It was a amazing night.

New Year's Eve dinner had limited special menu that had enough variety for all of us. Fish and beef were ordered. All cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. Prices were on par with similar S. Beach places.

The food was over cooked and the drinks watered down. The server was nice and we got to sit down right away. Service food, food not. Not happy for amount paid.

Excellent food and atmosphere but there were screaming kids a few tables over and the staff didn’t do anything about it.

This restaurant, on Ocean Drive, was a great place to eat. We ate dinner there on a Monday night and had delicious burgers. The next morning, we returned for breakfast. All of the food we ate was delicious and cooked the way we asked. It has a great covered porch that allows the diner to enjoy people-watching along Ocean Drive. There is also indoor dining available. The service we received during both visits was exceptional; friendly, accurate, efficient, and not over zealous. While the prices are a little high, they are more reasonably priced than other Ocean Drive establishments. Most everything is pricey in that area, so we expected to pay more. I would definitely eat there again, and recommend it to South Beach visitors.

Front Porch is a popular venue morning, noon and evening .. And with good cause. Good venue, with attentive staff and excellent food. We have sampled several breakfast / brunch options and all excellent; and happy hour appetisers are pretty much a meal in their own right .. Fish & shrimp taco options are great. We always enjoy stopping there.

The food here was amazing! The crab cakes were fresh a DB the corn aoli was good enough to eat on its own. The steak kabobs were seasoned to perfection and a huge portion. I will definitely be going back!

The restaurant is known for Breakfast all Day and, sure, it was available but what a disappointment. Before we even got started (and this was at about 7PM) it was about what they did not have. Not too many items, but still.... I ordered the Crab Cake Benies and the crab cakes were overcooked and had very little crab meat. My son ordered a scramble with ham and peppers and it was okay but presented in a very uninspired way. The weather turned nasty as we were arriving and throughout much of our meal, and that may have contributed to the overall negative impression, but we also noted that the restaurant - and bar - were virtually empty so that may be saying something too... Not sure I would give it another try as there are way too many other choices in SOBE.

Went here for a dinner on a bachelorette party trip. 5 people with vastly different food tastes and dietary restrictions. There was something for everyone. Food and drinks were delicious. Ambience was very nice (we sat outside ). The wait staff was wonderful too! We are all very pleased that we picked this restaurant.

Cool atmosphere. Dining was up on a ledge so you were not eating directly next to all the pedestrians walking by. Food was average, could've been better.
