Lido Restaurant at The Surf Club
On Sundays, Lido’s sun-kissed terrace sets the scene for the La Dolce Vita Brunch with live music and Southern Italian traditions served tableside. The alfresco experience begins with an aperitivo and assortment of charcuterie, cheeses and hand-cut Crudo served family-style. To follow, Chef Mermolia shares his favorite specialty dishes, and for the main, Mediterranean takes on classic brunch fare. The finale, the Dulcis in Fundo dessert room.

Food was good
Service was incredibly slow at the bar and for dinner
Restaurant was not full, so didn’t understand the very slow service and lack of attention during dinner.
We had a delicious dinner here and enjoyed a lovely evening. Mario was our wonderful server and recommended great choices. We had the citrus endive salad, split a delicious four cheese pizza, and each ordered a pasta dish. The food was really really good and service was great!
Such a beautiful place … so NOT what you would expect from a Four Seasons restaurant.
We ordered the tuna tartare and it took like 45 min, we were starving. Because of that we went to another place
We loved the outstanding service provided by our waiter “Mario” and as we expected Chef Antonio Mermolia continues to do an amazing job !
Oceanfront veranda is the best!
The terrace dining at the Lido is always such a refined but casual experience. The staff is superb and the setting just beautiful. The lunch menu could use a few more items or rotating daily specials, but the quality is always great.
We made a reservation at 9:45, as soon as we sat the waiter told us that the kitchen was closing in a few minutes, still can't understand that the restaurants take late reservations and sit you down and tell you kitchen is closing....food was good, we used to love le sirenus, same chef, so good food, expensive, but good. TERRIBLE service and attitude from our waiter though....
Food was amazing, drinks were great, ambiance is unmatched. Service was ok and portions were small.
The food was very bland and very expensive. The service was amazing however, so that reflects the price point a little better. The chicken entre and the pasta with clams were both just “ok”. Would not recommend if you are hungry. The portions are insanely small as well.
Birthday celebration. Service was great. Definitely very small portions for the price, but that’s the four seasons.
We go to Lido every week. This time, the service and food were shockingly deteriorated. They forgot our appetizer, started serving entree. After being pointed out, they took the entree back and brought appetizer. After we finished our belated appetizer before being served entree, they came to ask if we were finished and wanted coffee or desserts. We told servers we hadn't being served entree yet. They then brought our entree, but the cold one from 40 min ago which they tried to serve us before appetizer. They kept coming back if we'd like another same drinks 4 times, after we said yes 4 times to different servers. The chicken and potatoes were so sour like they had gone bad. Not even one apology for the horrible service and mismanagement. The waitress we kept asking for to talk about the horrible service never came back to our table. Other servers said she was busy inside and couldn't come out to us when we pointed out all the mishaps. A fine dining place @ a 5 star hotel serving appetizers and entrees in wrong orders, asking customers about desserts before bringing entree, re-serving cold entree from 40 min ago after they made a mistake, telling frustrated regular customers that our server is too busy to come to take our comments/requests, is simply not acceptable. Management needs to work up service and fix the too-sour or gone-bad chicken dish with vinegar soaked or gone-bad potatoes. It was literally the worst chicken and potatoes we've had in our life and the worst service we've experienced at Lido and any other 5 star hotels' restaurants. It's time for the company to have a serious meeting among the restaurant team not to let this happen again, because the company will lose customers at this rate.
Was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend it.
Always a pleasure to brunch at Lido facing the Ocean.
The hosts were not very welcoming and clearly had empty tables tables outside while they attempted to restrict their use to only their residents and hotel guests. While I understand the need for some priorities, I don’t understand the clearly communicated restriction of the outdoor tables to only their residents and hotel guests while as it turned out several tables were available. Perhaps it’s because they were so severely understaffed outside to provide expedient service? Perhaps it’s just the host exuding control and catering to those who tip a lot to get a table. We had two kids under 6 who we would not feel comfortable allowing to dine indoors with Covid concerns, so after some pleasing on my part, the host procured a table after a 10min wait, but clearly indicated that would happen only one time. The food was truly excellent and we’d love to continue to dine there as locals, but with such preferential treatment to only the hotel guests, we have a hard time recommending this experience to clients who are not staying in the property. Perhaps the Four Seasons doesn’t care which would be inconsistent with their brand.
Lovely place, good service, food was just above average
Not an extensive menu, but what is on it is excellent. We had the Branzino and Pasta with clam sauce, both excellent. Tuna tartare was fabulous and the beet tartare likewise. Prices were not cheap, but this is the Four Seasons.
Brunch was excellent!!
Over the top ambiance, delicious food, excellent service. Looking forward to returning.
We had a beautiful lunch outdoor on the terrace overlooking the beach area. The chilled pea soup was superb and we both enjoyed the rare tuna club. We look forward to returning and bringing out of town friends and family.
Great atmosphere small portions and bland food. The Wine is very mediocre for the price
Food was excellent, but we reserved for outdoors and this was not honored. Disappointing.
Best Property in ALL Southern Florida.
Staff is Professional, Attentive and Caring.
Beautiful setting with great food and wine selections
Pre Mother’s Day Lunch
Excellent food and atmosphere.
Italian food at its finest, elegant set up, great execution, attentive service, sophisticated ambiance...Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in Miami. Amalfi Vibes, one of a kind!
Beautiful restaurant with outside seating, overlooking the pool area, beach and ocean. Delicious food and outstanding service. Elegant and chic setting.
Excellent service, food a great birthday experience. Located in the historic Surf Club.
What a fantastic improvement over La Sirenuse (the former name of the restaurant). Same fantastic Chef, impeccable service, and incredible wine list, but the food is more accessible and relaxed. I love this place and it will be a frequent destination for me.
Perfect place to sit outside and enjoy the poolside and ocean views in luxury. The service was very attentive and the food was fresh. We had the farm salad with shrimp and the hamachi. Paired with a glass of rose it was the perfect light lunch with friends.
Wonderful experience, the food was very good and the service was excellent
Great lunch! The Pizza is 72hr fermentation dough, amazing! My favorite . Great selection of Mediterranean dishes. Key Lime pie the best in town!
The steak tagliatelle was fatty and nervy ( not really tagliata style.
Top 5 restaurants in Miami hands down

Food is subpar, have now been a couple of times and tried a variety of appetizers and entrées all very poor. Not service or food is remotely close to their previous restaurant Le Sirenuse.
