It must have been outdated or the restaurant bribed the author. The hotel where the restaurant is housed is beautiful in all the ways one would expect of a nice Miami Beach hotel. We ordered the jambalaya for two persons ($55), and though the pan that was brought to our table was impressive looking, the carpet of rice was chewy (perhaps it's supposed to be), and the chicken and shrimp had very little flavor. The andouille sausage, fortunately, offered something in the way of (charred) taste. The profitability margins on that dish must be huge. The real downer was the bill. After we paid, it struck as that the total was way too high. I asked to view the bill again, thinking they must have forgotten to delete a side item that they'd forgotten to bring us (fortunately). No. It was the 18% gratuity (on a party of TWO? Seriously?), in addition to our $25 tip. I expressed shock, and the waiter said he forgot to tell us -- that he always makes it a point to point this out to guests. I had them remove our tip, of course. Slimy way to do business. Maybe it's on the menu, and we just missed it.

The service was non-existent. I actually had to get up to find someone to give us water even hough the place was empty.

We stayed at the St. James so it was very convenient to go downstairs to the restuarant for lunch ,dinner and drinks. The meals were tasty but a bit on the small size. The staff was very friendly and service good.

We were hungry when we arrived and asked for some bread right away while we looked at the menu. The hostess promised right away, as did the waiter and manager. Fifteen minutes later, corn muffins arrived. Food was uneven. Salmon sliders were good, but a shrimp appetizer was glutinous and unappealing. The "hot" soup arrived barely warm. A very disappointing lunch experience.

The sides appeared after the entrees were eaten. What saved this place was the excellent quality of the food and the sweet nature of our server, not to mention our easy going nature. They were very good about compensating us with a glass of free wine and not charging for the sides!

Having been traveling all day we decided to eat there even though we were the only people. We felt as the servers were annoyed that we decided to stay. The whole time we felt rushed. The food part: ordered an appetizer.....30 mins later the waiters comes up and says " oh btw we are out of octopus forgot to tell you but your food is almost out". So it took 30 mins to let us they were out of octopus . My dinner wasn't that good, fish was small and the rice was undercooked . Deffenitly not worth 4 stars....very disappointed .

Both were very good. On to more seafood! Had grilled cobia with corn and tomatillo sauce and poached grouper for our entrees. Fish was absolutely wonderful - fresh and cooked perfectly.

I can't complain, but there was no "WOW" factor either. Brunch included an omelet station, salmon, lamb, bacon, eggs, sausage, fries, pasta salad, baked chicken, veggies, Caesar salad, and a few other items. I thought it was strange that they chose to serve lamb at the carving station, as opposed to beef or pork. The desserts were not memorable at all. Brunch did include one complimentary mimosa or bellini, which was nice. The baked chicken looked underdone...very pink, so I was afraid to eat it. I've had much better brunches in the South Beach area but this wasn't bad for $49.00 pp (plus tax and 18% gratuity added).

My friend and I ate here for out last night in Florida and it was a perfectly fine meal. We are both very food oriented and somewhat picky and were a little disappointed about some of our choices but overall the food is better than most we had in Miami beach. I agree with others that it costs a lot for the quality but I think that's about the location rather than the food itself. Our waiter was very attentive, the pool area is actually quite nice and we had a great time.

When we called the rest, they said it was located on 15th street so we went up & down 15th street to find it, turns out they were on Collins. Once we went inside, someone asked us to go upstairs which we did. When we went up, there was no one. Finally went inside the kitchen. The waiter told us that lunch is served downstairs. So, we walked down. The waiter took our order on time and the food came out fairly quickly. After we were done eating, the waiter disappeared and the plates weren't taken off the table nor did anyone come to ask us if we needed any more drinks or dessert. No one came for the check either. After we asked for the check, it came about an hour later. Won't go back.

We did have dinner and i was really surprised and excited to try the different appetizers. We had the three different meat empanadas which included alligator, AMAZING! We also had the pork cheek with plantains...all very good. Service was also very good, Joel was attentive and enjoyed chatting with him.

I requested a regular menu on New Year's Eve when I made the reservations and again when I confirmed, but was seated with the set menu. The menu was blasé and not very Florida with some black-eyed peas thrown on a plate and 1/2 bite of lobster claw on the surf and turf. (The filet was good.) The waiter had difficulty understanding what we wanted as well as explaining what the restaurant offered, so it was not until I returned to write this review that I understood that the $30.00 beverage package included all premium drinks and not just house wines. The restaurant was loud and the service inconsistent. One minute plates coming too fast, the next, water glasses not filled. We left early to go elsewhere.

For a $200 dinner + wine for two, you can do much better than this in Miami (if not in Miami Beach). The ingredients are good. But, the food is underwhelming. The grouper appetizer had ingredients that didn't appear to be going well together. The Ceviche was the most yummy of all dishes. The 2012 Wind Gap pinot was not preserved well (a bit sour). The main waiter was friendly and we had a great time talking to him, but didn't not know much about the food or wine. We were served also by multiple people (at least three) which was odd.

We basically had to stop servers as they were walking by to order as no one ever came to our table. When we finally ordered drinks, my friends ordered strawberry mojitos and 20 minutes later (after asking about our drinks) the manager finally delivered the raspberry mojitos our waiter ordered. We had to wait for everything despite the place only being moderately filled. It felt like no one had any control of when food would come out of the kitchen or what would show up. Overall the food was good (except the paella) but didn't make up for poor service and really long waits for everything!

Never got to eat at Florida Cookery because even though reservation for 8:45 pm was confirmed at 4:30 pm The resturant bumped all reservations for a last minute art basel event. So I could sit in the breezeway and order from their menu Or go to their other resturant called the Catch. While everyone was polite when our menus flew away even when weighed down with plates we opted for the other restaurant. So, usual south beach silliness masquerading as a service business

When we arrived for our 8:45 reservation they told us the restaurant had been rented out for a private party, but they had devised makeshift seating on an outdoor walkway in a second floor wind tunnel between two buildings. Tables were awful, there was no atmosphere, and they expected us to pay their $40+ for entrees. An apology was offered, but that was it. There had been no advance warning, even though they called us that morning to confirm our reservation. We left.

We had a very expensive (for 3 @$140 plus tip) lunch that was lacking in all areas. The empanadas arrived clearly with different fillings from menu and servers description. It took asking 4 times to get what was in them. The food was NOT fresh, VERY salty, heavy and not the quality that the prices indicate. The server was clueless and while we did not harshly complain - the table behind us did. If you are going to charge high prices in S Beach then you should work to serve good food. One of the most disappointing meals I've had in S. Beach. Good service could have helped bad food a bit but bad service made it all worse. Think before dining here and peruse the menu w/ open eyes.

The menu is interesting, the food very tasty, the products used of great quality. The staff was warm, enthusiastic and helpful but not over-bearing and seemed genuinely concerned by the quality of the food which was being served. The athmosphere is pleasant but relaxed, the decoration and lighting really nice and - most important - the noise level was kept to a minimum: which allowed for a normal dinner conversation without lip-reading or shouting. Quite unusual and welcome for a Miami / S. Beach restaurant.

I recommend you the Florida Cookery as on the fringe of an attraction with its flare for the natives without the noise of tourist and certainly excellence in it menu. What the Florida Cookery definitely has is substance in it's menu and most of a fantastic taste across the world combined into a presentation that is very hard to duplicate anywhere. Its majestic scenery just adds an element of elegance with a feel of comfort which does always goes well together but, the exception will be the Florida Cookery.

The food and service were fine but it was just not busy enough for a weekend night. Adjusting some prices and presenting different menu options might bring a bigger crowd. Not bad for a quiet dinner but there are other options in the area with more energy.

For lunch on a Saturday, the inside restaurant was closed, so we ate on the patio. The service was very friendly and attentive(especially by SoBe standards!). The menu is an imaginative mix of updated Florida favorites. The creamy, almost ricotta-like burrata mozzarella on fried green tomatoes was a standout, as were the BBQ ribs appetizer. The key lime tart for dessert was tiny, but delicious. As to be expected for a South Beach hotel restaurant, prices weren't cheap, but not outrageous either. I wouldn't go for lunch on a Tuesday, but for special occasions when in the area, I'd definitely go back.

She said it was great for dinner and wanted to try brunch. That was a bad idea. From her omelette that was just a tasteless egg white slab with the veggies thrown on top to them trying to charge us individually for the unlimited mimosas it was a horror show. We were the last to leave since we had so many issues... Never again

The restaurant at that time was upstairs and inside, To my surprise, the restaurant is now downstairs, outside seating only. This was supossed to be a special girls night out for my friends birthday. No one wanted to sit outside and sweat while dining in 90 degree heat especially when we've gotten all dressed up. The place had a very cheesy atmosphere, mainly hotel guest and out of towners. Not at all what we were expecting. Also, very uncomfortable hard chairs, dark table, the staff didnt seem to be very concerned and so we got up and left. We had dinner somewhere else (INSIDE with airconditioning)

Entree portions were very small and nothing special at all, which I would have expected with such raving reviews. I had the sorbet dessert, you get to pick 2 flavors and the key lime flavor was not edible - too sour and bitter.

When we showed up at 8:45 we found the indoor dining area was closed for a private event and the only seating was outside in the pool area. The only other people there were 3 people that had been in the pool and one other table. There were no fans to keep customers cool due to the inconvenience of not being able to dine indoors. The food was good - but not excellent and not worth having to eat in the hot summer night. Would have like to have been told outdoor seating only in advance. The conch chowder & Oxtail were the best dishes we had that night - would order that again if ever went back.

More specials would mean more visits, for sure! Kris Wessel's tremendous talent shows through in his new location, especially his gift with salads and veggies - though the little key lime tart was tremendous, too.
