The food was very good and our servers were excellent. The specials caused a bit of sticker shock when the check came. But, it was a delicious, fun meal.

Great atmosphere with an amazing staff. Very attentive and friendly. The food was amazing. Even though it looks like a smaller menu there is so much to choose from. Would highly recommend going. I can’t wait to go back.

Highly recommend and wish we had eaten there instead of another steakhouse onsite! This was far better, interesting food pairings and amazing flavours. Still also talking about their grilled octopus and the photo of the cauliflower steak is visually stunning and so tasty!

I would have given Habitat a five star review but for the
prices, which were on the high side. When we arrived for our reservation we were ushered to the most comfortable banquette—great start. The food was absolutely delicious —the rolls, the kale salad, the crab cakes, and especially the Colorado lamb, which may be the best lamb you’ll ever have. The desserts are also excellent—we had the carrot cake. Only the coffee was a disappointment. We also had excellent and personal service.

Great meal with bottomless drinks. We went for my girlfriend birthday and the attention was superb in a very nice and friendly environment. Great experience.and one of the best brunch places Miami can offer. Special thanks to Alex who made the experience far more memorable!

Like everything at the 1 Hotel, it is sleek and stylish room. Food was great, but the entree was very slow coming. The waitress was apologetic and said the kitchen was "slammed," though you would think that a big restaurant on a Saturday night would be expecting that. She gave the entire table desert, which was quite an offering. Assuming the speed was a one off, the restaurant would get five stars.

Elizabeth and Martina were excellent servers and generally kind, thoughtful people. The food was yummy. The outdoor seating feels like you're sitting in part of the driveway, which is weird since the hotel itself is so fantastic in every way. Making the outdoor seating area feel more enclosed and private with greatly elevate the overall dining experience.

Service was good but staff lacked polish. Food was very good in places but very much mediocre in others. Eggplant dish was mushy and lacked flavor, and my side of sautéed spinach was cooked down to nothing and seemed to have no seasoning, sauce, or flavor of any kind.

A family dinner out on vacation . The food was absolutely delicious! We felt that our server was rushed and didn’t take the time to go over the menu with us whatsoever; she was very nice though...just seemed overwhelmed. When we were asked if we wanted sparkling or still water, we chose still. We didn’t know we were purchasing 3 bottles of water at $7 each, so that was a bit surprising. I wish they had a tap water option. The crab cakes were good, but at $25 each we felt it was quite overpriced. All the other menu items were fairly priced.

Our server was very present and kind when we arrived, but after having taken our order he lost interest in us. He forgot to bring two of our drinks, which we only received after fifteen minutes delay and after having reminded about them. We only ordered mains, and our food arrived exactly one full hour after having placed the order. One of the dishes (half farm chicken) was not warm, and an order for a mixed salad had been forgotten. The restaurant was only 1/3 full, so I wonder haw long we would have waited if the restaurant had been full.

The ambiance was really nice and we had high expectations as we were nicely greeted and had a great table. However, everything went downhill from there. After we ate the appetizers, plates were left at our table for a while, to the point that one of us had to go and grab someone to clean the table and to order more drinks and a bottle of wine. Then the food arrived and it was tasty but cold. They offered to return it but we didn’t bother. Overall, our waiter was the only good thing about the experience. He was nice and diligent but doesn’t seem like the rest of the staff has it together. I wouldn’t go back to dine. Maybe just drinks at the bar but there are so many options in Miami that I probably would just go somewhere else.

We were surprised that it was a fixed price menu (wasn’t listed when I made reservation), however the several course meal was excellent!! We would have never tried some of the dishes and they were tasty and well presented. The servers were fantastic and extremely attentive - filling water glasses, removing plates, etc, seamlessly.

Dinner was amazing! We had the bacon wrapped fillet special that had blue cheese crumbles and other toppings that was out of this world and I’m not even crazy about blue cheese! But the star of the show was the fries we ordered to go with it! Yes, I said fries! When you come here you must order a side of fries! They bring a side of ketchup to go with them but trust me, you will not need it! This is a beautiful restaurant and gorgeous hotel! We will be back!

Habitat has a really great earthy yet trendy ambience. The wood accents inside the restaurant are well done and they have a nice outdoor dining patio. Service was excellent and food was very fresh. However, it was also very expensive for small portions. We only got a few appetizers, no drinks, and the bill was $120. I wouldn’t go back because of this but I would recommend that others check it out at least once.

A must go place for Miami Spice and just dinner in general. Haven't been for breakfast, brunch or lunch, but definitely will be back again. This is the 3rd visit already. Can’t wait to go back for the new menus in October and November!!

What a beautifully appointed restaurant. Fits perfect inside the one and only 1 Hotel in South Beach. The service was wonderful and the food beyond amazing. Pano, Chef Bates and our waiter Edguardo outdid themselves once again.

I have been raving about this place nonstop. I can't say enough good things about the level of service and the flavorful food. Everything was on point. Be sure to try the octopus and spicy tuna tartar. Oh and the flourless chocolate cake. Yum!!

Pano is the epitome of customer service and professionalism. You can tell he has passion and excitement in what he does. Chef Bates was humble and welcoming. It was so nice just chatting about food and his new menus and upcoming creations. Wow is he beyond talented and creative!!

This is a must visit while in Miami Beach!! Whether you are visiting or live here, please go. Ask for Edguardo or Gabriella. Also see if Pano and T are around too. You will not be disappointed.

Amazing food. Such creative dishes and loads to choose from across the spectrum of needs and desires (gluten free, plant based, etc). The za’atar fries are off the charts, you must try them! My husband and I ate there 2 nights in a row it’s so good. Service was impeccable.
