Food is always outstanding as well as service.
Only con is that I’ve noticed every time We eat there, there are annoying nats buzzing you repeatedly, every time. (Inside)
Danielo was our server and he was amazing. Went out of his way to make our anniversary special!!
Our server was one of the nicest we’ve ever had and the food was great.
Excellent and relaxing choice . the food was phenomenal. Service was great.
Food was amazing and our waiter was very professional and helpful. His recommendation for our menu selection was perfect. I wish I remembered his name.
The restaurant atmosphere is nice, staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The food is tasty and fresh. The tables by the window have a nice view of the ocean..
My daughter and I had brunch on Saturday and from the start the Hostess was charming and kind. The servers were all friendly and did a wonderful job. The food was wonderfully and the seafood was very fresh. The presentation, taste and combination were perfect. Thank you for a great brunch.
Great food, service, and ambience. The prices are a bit steep, but the prices of the wine were outrageous.
The restaurant is very well done ( remodeled ), very attentive service, excellent menu but for its prime location in a fine hotel at fairly high prices it should not be as informal and noisy as a " family beach place" which unfortunately is the case. I think the previous establishment followed much more the style and expectation of an upscale eatery in an upscale hotel.
Great service, attentive and friendly waiter. We live on Key Biscayne and always enjoy our meals at this restaurant.
Beautiful setting outside. Food was excellent. Dinner special was all you could eat seafood platter $55 with oysters, ceviche, snow crab claws & shrimp. My husband got that and it was Outstanding! My scallops were delicious with the yukon gold potatoes. Our server Diago was wonderful as well. We will be back.
Service was second to one. Our waiter could not have been better. The Friday night all you can eat raw bar was delicious!!!
Overall experience was great ! Celebrated my daughter’s birthday and menu was printed w HBirthday greetings ! Great deals on Wednesday’s with the wines and champagnes. Had a fabulous time ! Food was very good! Seafood very fresh and nicely seasoned atmosphere is casual and relaxed. Our servers were good, but none were exactly alert
Wonderful setting outside while inside feels like a typical hotel dining space. The food was ok, but compared to the price it was a let down. The service we received outside on the patio was tremendous and the half price wine night is a great value. I expected a little more from the Ritz and the menu was limited to the point that the fresh catch of the day was Steak.
Our Waiter was top notch. Friendly and accommodating
Seafood menu narrow appeal for those who do not love seafood but want to have seafood when visiting Miami
Our celebration was never acknowledged.
We will not be going back unfortunately.
Everything we expected and more. Carolyn was delightful, professional and a wealth of knowledge.
This price expectations for the value was a bit to high.
We loved everything: the ambiance, music, delicious food and especially service
Best experience in Miami
We’ll be definitely back
This was our 2nd visit to Lightkeepers because we were so impressed the 1st time.
We were promptly seated and greeted by our waitress. She took drink orders and came right back with the cocktails, but two of the three of us had ordered a kir and received kir royales. No biggie.
She took our order (and the wine list!). Appetizers arrived via busboys, very quickly and we asked for the wine list back
Next thing we knew, our dinners were being served before the appetizers were cleared! The busboys could not take our wine order and one of them had to go find the waitress. We tried not to eat too much as we waited for our wine, but one of our party had ordered a medium rare filet which was done medium. At the price we she was paying, that was not acceptable. We summoned the waitress, who seemed to be the only real waitstaff in the restaurant, and she had the chef prepare another steak, which was cooked perfectly.
The rest of our time there was pleasant and the waitress brought out a beautiful dessert board, as it was a birthday celebration
All in all, our waitress was good, but the support staff threw off the timing for the whole evening
Celebrated my friend’s birthday. Sat outside. Lovely. Waiter was very attentive. Brought us a complimentary dessert. So nice. Will be back soon enough.
We had a reservation but had to wait because they were overbooked. They did try to find seating at the bar for us but it was too crowded. They finally opened a side room so at least we got a table. I would think the Ritz Carlton restaurant would have a better handle on how to book reservations when you have many people staying there as part of their cruise package. The key lime pie dessert was outstanding enough for 4 to share.
For appetizers we had the tuna tartare, which was wonderful, and the beets and burrata which was good, though a little heavy on the burrata. We both had the Cobia fish for the main course and it was good though we wished it had more of a sauce to accompany it. We decided to share a side. Caution: the side portions are enormous. We tried the charred cauliflower and could only finish half of it.
Service was top notch.
Food was horrendous
Wonderful dinner. Our server was terrific.
Awesome. Incredible Brunch on Sunday.
No snapper or branzino.
Need to have fish in stock for dinner.
Celebrating my mom’s birthday - the restaurant brought us special birthday menus!
Our server Diego is what made our experience delightful. His attentive service, great cheery attitude, and attention to detail was noted throughout our meal.
Thank you for making our 13 wedding anniversary extra special. We had a fantastic evening, and our server was incredible. The food delicious! Many many thanks!
I love the setting at Lightkeepers. While they say they are a fish restaurant, the types of fish they offer are the least expensive and often bottom feeders. We have such wonderful local fish, and they serve salmon??? We had a beautiful night, outdoors with a little breeze, but the bar had the worst, loud music that affected our enjoyment. Not pleasant. Will try again.
Not near as good as the previous restaurant Cioppino. The food was not good quality, but is was generic buffet quality. The only upside was the view.
Service was excellent. Lights were so bright it felt like a cafeteria on a Saturday night. Fish was not cooked through on first attempt. It was so rare you couldn't even cut through it. Was great after they redid it however. Filet was ordered medium rare and came out very rare with a cold rare center. I feel bad leaving a poor review as they did adjust the bill and tried to make our anniversary special, but the cook/kitchen really spoiled our night that was meant to be special. Manager knew of our issue and never bothered to come to our table to speak with us. Not what a restaurant at a Ritz Carlton is normally like.
EJ is awesome! He makes the dining experience perfect for my family every time! He converted us into regulars!
Wonderful birthday dinner. Our server was amazing and made great recommendations for food choices. He went way beyond and above what I would have expected. I have stayed at the Ritz Carlton hotels before but the staff at this hotel exceeded them all. All the servers at this restaurant are top notch. We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and breakfast was also amazing.
We went for Lunch during Miami Spice service and food was great. We had a table outside as we requested. The place has an amazing view to the sea.
