    The food at Root & Bone was great. However, I made my reservation a week prior for 9:30pm on Sunday via OpenTable. Around 5pm on the day of my reservation, they called me to say that the kitchen closes at 10pm on Sundays, so the kitchen normally closes early. They wanted to confirm that we were still coming, I confirmed and the person on the phone said they would let the kitchen know. When we arrived, the entire meal was rushed. We had to get all of our food in by 9:45, so it created a very tense vibe all because they allowed for a reservation to be booked too close to their closing time. It was supposed to the Farewell dinner for a bachelorette weekend and it just wasn't what I expected given this issue.

    Fantastic, yummy food! Restaurant located in lobby of Shelburne Hotel, an open area that is rather small. It was very quiet. Outdoor seating consisted of small porch like area at side of driveway entrance to hotel, that was not appealing at all. I highly recommend the food but the atmosphere while I was there was not interesting.

    The food and cocktails here are amazing. Very accommodating service. Great place for a quieter conversational meal on Miami Beach strip. Everyone in the party (8) really enjoyed their meals and the desserts. Ordered one of each of the desserts. Easy place to want to return too. The bar (Drawing Room) excellent 👍👍👍

    Andrés, our server, was pleasant and gave good recommendations. The ribs and fish were excellent entree choices as well as the arugula strawberry salad and plantain with bacon. Cocktails were outstanding with generous alcohol. This is a great spot for couples as well.

    This was a Christmas dinner special menu. It took an hour to get our first burned course, then came the entree 30 minutes later with over cooked sides and finally the dessert tart that was so hard we could not eat it. The staff was apologetic and scattered. Charged us full price. Mentioned experience at check-out and they credited us 50% of the meal. Would not recommend this restaurant for a holiday meal unless management figures out how to serve from a closer kitchen.

    The meal was ok, however, very bland with need of some flavor. Little things - had to ask for a wine menu. Then the wine was severed in a glass... not a stemmed wine glass as it should have been

    Had a wonderful dinner on Thanksgiving served by Washington who was shaggy and gorgeous. :-) We ordered from the regular menu and had granny’s angel biscuits, deviled eggs, heirloom tomato salad, shrimp and grits, and friend chicken. Biscuits and fried chicken were outrageously tasty!!! Our swanky cocktails were fantastically strong. :-) We loved our evening at R and B.

    The food was excellent. Ate there on a Monday night it was empty just one other table occupied. It’s kind of a weird spot in a hotel lobby. The fried chicken was really tasty and fresh. We also had the waffles and green beans. Everything was delicious.. I would eat here all the time if it was in my neighborhood. Really reasonable price too.

    Went for Miami Spice dinner based on the online menu and reputation of the chef. We were disappointed in the setting - very small area just inside the hotel entrance - almost like eating in the lobby. Only 2 other tables were occupied on a Saturday night. Upon reading the Spice menu, the crab cake sliders that were on the website menu were not a choice. There were other differences as well. Although the restaurant was empty, it took a while between ordering and getting any food - first the biscuits which did not live up to the hype and then eventually our salads - romaine wedge - very large portion - and mango watermelon. Both were good. For entrees we had the fried chicken and salmon - also both very good. Had pecan pie with whipped cream for dessert - very good but would have been better if the pie were warmed up before serving. Server was very friendly but as mentioned earlier, the food took a while. I do t know how they would function if busier. Although the food was very good and similar to Yardbird, the setting left a lot to be desired. The restaurant has been open almost a year, and if this is what it is usually like, I doubt it will survive another year.

    I happily stumbled upon Root & Bone and was pleasantly surprised by the food and service. Root & Bone is located on the first floor of the Shelborne Hotel, adjacent to the lobby, and though it is small, the experience packs a punch. My sister and I feasted on the Fried Chicken Biscuits, the Root & Bone fried chicken bucket of bird, shrimp and grits, and the macaroni and cheese. All of it was so delicious, though a tad bit salty. The flavors were rich and savory, the presentation was appealing, and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this place.

    While it’s in the hotels lobby the food is still very good and great value for money. However the menu is very limited to basically fried chicken and sides. So if you like southern fried chicken and the usual adds.

    When we arrived, we stood outside for a while debating whether we wanted to eat here - the restaurant is in the lobby of the Shelborne hotel and does not look inviting or inspiring at all. It looks like hotel lobby seating. Totally exposed. No ambiance. We decided to give it a go. The food is AMAZING. Wow. We were blown away - the fried chicken, the biscuits, the short-rib - the flavors, the textures. Some of the best we have ever had. So, if you are looking for soul food this one of the best in Miami, but be prepared to not enjoy the surroundings.

    Food was really great. Ambiance, drinks, great. Waiter was very friendly. However, we soon realized there seemed to be ulterior motives. Without going into any drawn out details, we realized seven different pieces of evidence that led us to believe that our waiter was not honest (in terms of the tipping policy specifically). There was a 20% gratuity already added to the bill and when we accidentally added an additional 20% on top of the entire bill, he was heavily involved in leading us to believe that was standard (withholding information, hastily taking payment before we were ready, not leaving the itemized receipt on the table, very chatty and “suave” as he was charging the card, almost to attempt distract us). Once we realized we double tipped and asked to see the itemized receipt, the attitude was very much one of “uhh, I didn’t think they’d figure it out,” completely opposite of the seemingly “helpful” attitude throughout the meal. Buyer beware!

    Fantastic! The food was amazing as was the service. Would highly recommend. Note: location is a bit odd in the lobby area of a hotel, so it's not a place you would stop in for a drink...but the food is seriously to die for and I will definitely go back next time I'm in town. Best fried chicken ever!

    My friend and I tried Root & Bone since they had a deal on Travelzoo. We were not disappointed! We started with the wonderful beet, arugula and gorgonzola salad, my friend had the half bird which she said was very tasty. I had the shrimp and grits which was the best I've ever had! And we shared the macaroni & cheese which was also delicious. The restaurant is located in the Shelbourne Hotel. Caution: the valet parking is $25 and the valet guy couldn't tell me if the restaurant validated parking or not so we parked along a side street not too far for $8 and walked to the restaurant instead.

    Great food. Chicken was delicious! Large portions. I’m not sure if the resto manages their open table account... I made a reso but when I showed up it was closed. Went back and glad we did. Great for kids. But I would call in the am first to see if they are actually open.
