About

South Florida now boasts a fine meat restaurant with a French flare since Kosh now under new management by the same people of Fresko in Aventura,to the delight of vacationers and local residents. The location is just 2 blocks away from the beautiful Surfside beach, and steps away from many apartments, condos and hotels, making it a great destination for that leisurely yet upscale dinner. It’s also only a short walking distance from the famous Bal Harbour Shul and Young Israel of Bal Harbour, which comes in handy if you want to organize a private event for one of the Shabbat meals.

We had called in advance to let them know we were having difficulty parking. We arrived ten minutes late for our reservation and were nervous that we wouldn't be seated (as this is high season). To our relief, our table was waiting for us.
This restaurant had us at "hello". From the warm maitre' d all the way to the busboys, this staff is impeccably trained. The service was overshadowed only by the food. Every bite was memorable, and every preference executed perfectly. Medium well was served medium well, etc. When wasabi potatoes were served with my amazing Tuna steak I casually mentioned to the waiter that I don't like wasabi. She immediately suggested I give my wasabi to my son who was devouring his and brought me the mashed sweet potatoes, serving it with a smile. The short rib sliders were ordered twice (yes they were THAT good). The tostones with shredded beef were also ordered twice. Mouth watering. My sisters salmon was the best salmon I have ever tasted. Beg for a reservation here. It's worth it!!

I'm a lamb snob and this was the best lamb chops I've ever had hands down. Great appetizers and wine too. 5 Stars overall.

Kosh is a solid candidate for regular dining. The staff is and has always been very friendly and caring. The white table cloth is much appreciated. Grilled meats are done as ordered. Found the bolognese sauce to inconsistent however, at times in tomato and at times not. As well, the pasta has at times been spaghetti and at times linguini, but not done al dente. This is important to me, as I prefer the tomato based sauce. Appetizers are quite good, particularly the three tacos. Continued attention to detail and the need for consistency should assure a long tenure in Surfside for this restaurant.

We went for dinner to Kosh on our last night in Miami I would have to say this was the most enjoyable from all the restaurants we went to. The sliders were delicious and the Reserve steak was perfect. We were in Miami during the New Year season and the restaurant was packed but we still felt like we got unbelievable service. I already recommended Kosh to my friends and family.

I appreciated replacement of my almost raw veal chop for a new slice (they burned the first one), however it was unseasoned and I needed to wait a long time for the replacement. My husband's steak, although huge, was tough and tasteless. Soup and dessert were okay.

The restaurant is one of the best kosher restaurant in Miami by reputation. The meat is good, not harbor grill level but qualitative. Prices are among the highest in Town but service is a shame : lots of staff running for nothing, disorganised but polite. At the end, long wait, expensive bill and reasonably good food but does not worth at all the price.

I was very upset when I got an email confirmation of my reservation at 1pm and then at 3 pm got a cancellation. I had invited important guests and thought kosh wd be good. I hadn't checked my 200 emails in the late afternoon. It's a lot of nerve and terrible policy to handle reservations like that. Prob will not rely on ur app or kosh!!

The food here is cooked to subtle perfection. No over salting and over saucing. Veal chop was grilled to absolute perfection. This is a fabulous restaurant!

Great food - no major surprises. You get an exceptional version of what is written in the menu. We tried some of the Asian cuisine too and it was also really well executed.
All in all a great night!

We have gone to this restaurant twice. Both time we were quite satisfied with the quality and variety of choices. the service was excellent and the food well prepared.

The rib eye and lamb skewers were tasty and the fried rice was not only good, we tok home enough for 2 more meals. The also have Sushi. The Steak and Lamb cups were pricey but everything else was moderately priced.

We went to Kosh a week ago. Despite the large crowds in the area at the time, the restaurant served great food and the service was amazing. I would definitely go there again.
