Habitat - Miami Beach
Chef Jose Mendin is fusing masterful Michelin-star techniques with local, farm-fresh ingredients to craft a menu that respects the elements and honors simplicity.
Daily catch pulled fresh from the sea, vegetables plucked from the garden, and grass-fed quality meats are transformed into crudo specialties and dishes fire-grilled to perfection.
At Habitat, the sophisticated service is as warm as the atmosphere and five-star cuisine is delivered family-style because great meals are meant to be shared. It’s just more fun that way.
Favorite find on recent trip to Miami Beach! Food wonderful, setting very attractive, service good. Returned for a dinner after a wonderful lunch--neither disappointed!
Food was very good, but empty on a Saturday night at 8:30 pm.
Goodlooking restaurant. Food ok, nice wine, but terrible coffee
Atmosphere great food awesome recommend to everyone
We arrived for our reservations at 7:15 on a Saturday to an uncrowded, not busy restaurant. Prompt seating, greeting, drink order taking. Food was ordinary, small portions and overpriced served by kitchen “runner.” Waitress was pleasant but seemed distracted and seldom present Service charge/tip (included 18% in bill) was too much.
Increíble, la comida muy rica el lugar espectacular, en general una buena velada 👌
Food was ok but Way overpriced
Great food. Lovely space.
Service was great. Food was good.
Delicious food. Some of the worst service...seemed like no one had any idea what they were doing.
The app forces me to give ratings. Open table allowed us to book a reservation for Tuesday night. When we arrived the doors were open and lights on but there was no one inside including employees. We found a hotel employee in the lobby of 1hotel who told us there is no dinner service on Tuesday. Open table please coordinate with the restaurant as this was very confusing and frustrating. We obviously don’t have any negatives about the restaurant as we never dined.
Habitat was one of the worst restaurants I've ever visited in Miami Beach. The overall service was terrible, from an inhospitable manager (Carlos) to a sarcastic waiter (Aleks) it was an awful time. They also charged us $30 for bringing an outside cake even though my sister in law has serious food allergies.
I have tried the Habitat with my family, and as a whole, we gave it mixed reviews. I think I have to go back, as it is worth it to go back, and give it a second try.
Started at the bar and the bartender Bob Gilardi was excellent. Recommended the Grilled Cauliflower which was amazing. Scallops for dinner were excellent; we be back soon.
good food but very pricey
My husband and I had an exceptionally wonderful dinner at Habitat. The ambiance, service and food was amazing. Everything we tasted; shrimp and scallop dumplings (more like a ravioli shape), short ribs, crab croquetas etc were beyond delicious and well executed. There were also very healthy choices on the menu but we chose the high carb route that night. Usually one wouldn't feel that good the next day if you're not used to eating a lot of carbs but we both felt great. We sat on the banquette close to the entry on the window which was perfect seating for us as it was a quieter table. Our server (sorry forgot his name) from Latvia was super attentive and gave us the right amount of space for conversing with him and having our private conversations. He and his team poured our wine exactly when it was time to pour. We look forward to returning soon!
La verdad es que no nos gusto nada, ni la atencion, ni la comida... no volveria ni lo recomiendo
Loved everything about the 1Hotel and Habitat did not disappoint. Great and friendly service and delicious food. We ate multiple times during our stay, bar bites satisfied, dinner was elegant and our inclusive breakfast brunch was a perfect way to start the day.
Great place with amazing food and service. Very cozy atmosphere. Went for a business meeting perfect noise level. Great for any events celebrations as well, even for a date!!!! Keep it up Guys
Nice atmosphere with the exception of the two brat young kids (4 & 7) with parents sitting next to us, the kids were making lots of noise, we had a 6pm reservation which was timely, ordered 2 main dishes... Snapper and other was scallops. Bother were excellent but took almost an hour before the main course came out. I asked several times why the delay but no explanation was provided. Prior to the food we had to move our table as both of us had a horrible headache from the adjacent table. Not what I would have expected as they call themselves a 5 star restaurant. Bill was approx. $200. Wouldn't rush back. Also, Habitat is part of Miami Spice but when I asked after seated, they said otherwise. Was disappointed of the false advertising.
The service was great and the food was excellent. The Red Snapper and Bronzino were spectacular. The beet and burrata salad was also delicious.
The servers are complete idiots. I ate there 3 days for breakfast as I was staying in the adjoining hotel and every time they managed to screw up my order. They do not check in with the kitchen so the food arrives cold and then they also overcharged me. The decor is nice but the food and service are sadly typical miami poor standards.
Went for the Miami Spice and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty everything was. They have a winner.
The service was terrible!! We waited 20 minutes to have our drink orders taken and once we ordered our food it took another 45 minutes! The waiter was no where to be found and we had to ask another waiter if our food was on its way. They brought everyones food, except mine was accidentally given to the table next to us... but when they said they didn't order it, they said it was on the house for them having to wait so long!! We got no apology and I had to wait even longer for mine. One of us ordered the Caesar salad... but it was basically just lettuce!! Barely any dressing and there was no cheese on it. One positive note... the Miami cheesesteak was really good.
The 1 is always a pleasure! We did the spice menu ! Great value and great selection.
Terrible service. Hostess with awful attitude. Waiter forgetting our orders. Food mediocre.
The menu on the Miami spice website in completely different for lunch. Very disappointing, our waiter was with tired o in need of more training, we had to order wine multiple times and each time he was bringing the wrong bottle of wine. I was drinking beer and I had to order my beer more than three times. The place is amazing super clean and very nice. I will give them another try.
Great team approach—from the bus person to the manager.
A consistently great experience.
Great choice for a Miami Spice dinner. Several options for each course, some better than others, but none regrettable. Recommend adding some of their regular menu plates to enhance the overall experience.
Habitat was great, beautiful ambiance, good food, and a decent amount of people for a Monday night.
The service was excellent and the food... gooooood! Take your time, enjoy the ambiance and have a nice drink.
Our female server was so nice and attentive, we really enjoyed her service!
The lighting was not good, it was too dark to see the meals.
Our food was really good, one should try it!
Great ambiance. Cozy and beautiful. Food was delicious.
Don’t waste your time! Staff are not there to serve you unless they know your pockets are deep. The kitchen was embarrassing in terms of how they brought out the food cold and carelessly put together on your plate.
Excellent Miami Spice menu and a superb service from our waiter Luis!
We enjoyed the food very much and will return. The only thing we didn't like is that we didn't have good service.
Chef Mendin is one of the greatest gifts the culinary scene in Miami has ever been offered. The Miami Spice offering has great variety and reflects why he has gained so many accolades over the years. Habitat is a beautiful space and service is warm and authentic.
Great Service!!! Outstanding food. We were celebrating a 50 th b Day and the staff was amazing. We got Prosseco on rhe house!!! I highly recommend it!!!
Adrian the bartender at the Bar was Fantastic!!
Quite terrible food, really. Everything was doused in truffle oil and the staff couldn’t recommend anything believably.
