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.

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.
