Portions very small. Crab cake was horrible. It was crab scraps and meal. No lump crab meat at all. Could have received this poor quality of a product at 1000s of crappy restaurants anywhere. I was told that the served a particular draft beer, which I ordered only to be told that it was not available. Will not return.

Good Evening Greg, we apologize that the Biscayne Crab Cake was not up to standards and that the portion size wasn't to your expectations. Also, we're sorry that we didn't have that particular draft beer in stock. We would like to invite you to come back to the restaurant so we may give you a much better experience. Please contact me if you are willing to give us another chance. Gabriella Braude (305)455-5439

Great food. Slow but friendly service. If you’re in the area, it’s worth the stop.

Incredible, detail service. The staff was very attentive, polite, unobtrusive and anticipated our needs before we even asked. The food was phenomenal....hats off to the new chef!

I wouldn't recommend for dinner, but I've heard brunch is a hit. We came here for a celebratory dinner, looking for a good steak option and I knew I was going to order the ribeye before we even got a menu. We would have booked a reservation elsewhere, but availability, time, and having a young one to arrange care for prohibited that. The ambiance was nice. Service was good at first, but petered off as the night went on. The Charred Octopus appetizer was outstanding. Unfortunately most of the rest of the food went downhill from there. At 8 p.m. on a Saturday night they were out of ribeye. My option was an 8 oz filet or a 24 oz, $70 hunk of meat. I'm not paying $70 for a steak unless I'm at a prime steak house. I got the filet. My wife got the Saffron Seafood dish. The filet was good as was the cauliflower side. My wife's seafood was bland, with no discernable saffron taste. She was disappointed. I will give the staff kudos for bringing a very aggressive pour of prosecco to start the evening since we were celebrating. We'll have to come back and give them a second chance at brunch, but I doubt we'll be back for dinner.

We enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience. Upon arrival the facility is very pretty and the entrance to the restaurant is lovely. Our server, Francis, was perfect. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The cocktails, food, ambience and service exceeded our expectations and we are so glad we decided to dine here. Thank you!

We had the Miami Spice menu, and the food was great. We had both ordered glasses of wine, and when they did not have the dessert i had ordered, they comped our wine. The restaurant is nice and the outdoor patio is great. It was cool and comfortable sitting out there. Would definitely go back.

We tried this restaurant while on vacation. I enjoyed the food and outdoor dining. The service was great. The crab guacamole is a must have. For dinner I had the yellow jack special and my wife had the ribs. The fish was well prepared and the lemon caper sauce was so good. Ribs were meaty and had smoked flavor. A full slab was too much food. A rain storm blew in during dinner. Staff clicked a button and a canvas curtain came out to shield us from the rain. We had a great time.

Excellent gin martini, one of the best. Salmon and swordfish and the beet salad made us happy!
Our server and bartender were the ones that you wished always served you.
The view on the waterfront with a sunset were spectacular.
Finally,the hostess and the manager made us feel special and welcome.
We will return!

Totally enjoyed spending my Mother’s Day by have brunch here with my friends and family. The buffet had a great assortment of food and everything was fresh and beautifully presented. I do recommend Artisan Beach House for brunch. I had an awesome time. BTW the paella was amazing. Not a fan usually because it never seems to be cooked correctly but they nailed it. It was delicious.

We had to leave without eating after more than one hour and 20 minutes. The manager was very decent and waived what we had drank. But still, is unaceptable what happened.

Wonderful restaurant. The lovely waitress even had the chef make me up a small salad free of charge as it had feta in which I love and my husband doesn’t so we couldn’t share. Outstanding customer service .

I didn’t like how the brunch buffet didn’t have anything from the breakfast menu, it was purely lunch rather than brunch!

Too many kids that made it too loud!!

Overall the food options were not many:(

Service was great like in every Ritz Carlton! Beautiful view of the beach!

Absolutely love this place. Amazing place to have a great family Easter breakfast. I so appreciated that they didn't jack up the prices just for the day because it was Easter. The views are amazing, the decor, the environment, the food and the service is absolutely impeccable. We really were just so impressed.

Lovely view and surprisingly good food, given some of the comments I read. I had the crab cake which was excellent - a rich and subtlety flavored delight. Also had the beet salad - another flavorful delight. Our service was very good as well. The Ritz has one of the best locations on this strip of Miami Beach and I loved watching the boats coming in and out of the channel. This is a lovely patio and very enjoyable.

Great views of Haulover Inlet from the restaurants's terrace; delicious appetizers-grilled octopus and cobia ceviche; main entree- arroz caldoso, similar to seafood paella, plenty for both people to share.
We liked all of it, except for baked Alaska, which was too sweet and and otherwise quite mediocre. Also, beer lovers beware: one glass of draft beer is 14 bucks.
