I have been to Habitat at least 10 times (last time was an year ago), it used to be awesome, but not this time, food was only ok, service was super slow, when we complained they tried to help and the manager started to take care of us, which I really appreciate, but for an expensive restaurant this shouldn’t work like this...they have to re-think about the food’s quality and chefs, otherwise the place will not survive.

Wow! What an amazing dining experience! Everything was perfection - from the comfortable atmosphere to our waitress Gabby, the manager & Chef Thanawat Bates who sat with us & passionately spoke of his love of food & how all dishes are prepared with sustainability & is locally sourced. We are definitely food snobs, lol & highly recommend this fabulous gem. Not to be missed!

Both times we were there the fire alarm went of blaring through most of the meal. They did not have my preferred liquor brand. It was extremely expensive even for the area.

The wait staff was terrific.

We stayed at the 1 Hotel, and ate at Habitat our first night, after a long travel day. We liked it so much that we ate there the night before we left as well. The service was great, and the food was absolutely outstanding. We'll be back!

went to Fathers Day brunch. amazing spread of buffet only eats, including the usual omelette station, along with Mexican specialities service, especially the chefs serving the buffets were quite friendly and professional and many encouraged us to "come here next time"
only down item was the very steep price

We had a fantastic experience dining at Habitat. Our servers were extremely friendly and attentive. They also talked to us about the area since it was our first time in Miami and gave us a lot of recommendations. The menu selection was also wonderful. I cannot eat gluten and appreciated the menu being marked with what is gf or not. The fact that the gf menu options were just as delicious and plentiful as the non-gluten free meals made this foodie’s heart sing! The cocktails were also delicious. We hope to visit again soon!

What a great day. I took the family for mother’s day brunch and we had a great time. Unlike most buffets, Habitat prepared everything in small batches so it was fresh and delicious. Everyone on the staff was super friendly and accommodating. Can’t wait to go back.

The service was very inconsistent- the drinks took forever to get from the bar. The food and drinks were excellent as was the atmosphere. Only restaurant I’ve ever been to where they charge for bread on the table - AND we were not told by the waitress in advance that there was a charge for bread.

Our waiter was great and the supporting service was very good too. The food was tasty but the price did not match the meal. I think it may be a tourist trap. It was good but we won’t be back next spring when we are on our Spring vacation.

Delish food
Waiter was extremely attentive and really personable and fun. Chef was coming out and seeing how the food was. A bit pricey but very very good. Outside seating needed a cleaning though other than that experience was perfect

Was there a year ago. Was much better. Service is amazing. Kitchen ok but not excellent. Only one kind of tasteless bread. Scallops to battery. Well good for mainstream. The deserts also. Wish they had the homemade chocolate ice cream the had a year ago..

Great food, drinks and atmosphere/decor! The only negative was kind of slow service. Maybe it was due to being a busy Friday night but for how nice of a place as Habitat I think it’s fair to expect great service. We still had a great meal and a fun evening which is why I’m giving 4 stars.

Our dinner at Habitat was the hilight of our weekend. Our server was very knowledgeable, patient and sensitive to my food allergies, and the chef was amenable to preparing my food to my specifications. As a result, I was able to fully participate in and enjoy my meal in a way that I don’t usually get to when I eat out. I will eat at Habitat whenever I am back in Miami Beach, for sure.

Mostly okay. I got the filet mignon though. It was tasteless and tough. When I complained, they took the entree away. I was frankly surprised to see it still on the check. No compensation offer was made. When you charge as much as they do, one might think they could afford to be generous when things are not perfect. I won’t be back.
