My wife and I have dined before at the Setai but only for the Sunday brunch and we have loved it so we already had high expectations for the ocean grill… and we were not disappointed! We went on a Tuesday night in the off season so knew it would not be difficult to get in at last minute and we were warmly greeted by the FoH staff and seated in a prime spot. David our waiter was right there and was on point in all aspects throughout the dinner and very enjoyable to converse with and anticipate our wants and needs. The food was perfectly prepared and presentation was superb. We will definitely add the ocean grille into our weekly dinner out rotation and where will bring family and friends ! Well done to the team there!!

This spot is totally on-point….every single time, every single detail attended to by Rafael and Jose. I’ve become somewhat of a weekend fixture. So I use my guests as the barometer….they were mesmerized and are sure to return. Hoping they will invite me. Cheers!

Quiet restaurant with a beautiful atmosphere, however, the people sitting on the wall outside the dining area, smoking pot, was very off putting and annoying as the smell was overwhelming while trying to eat. Food was good but not $300 good!

Lobster pasta was good.. tiramisu was awesome as well. Service was absolutely terrible! It was very hard to get the waiter to help us with anything we needed. For instance, you may get your bread, and it will take another 15 mins to get the butter… you get your main dish and then there’s no cutlery. That’s another 20 mins request. A mandatory 20% is added to your bill for gratuity in-spite of the poor service. It’s the worst service I’ve had since being in Miami. I won’t be returning to this restaurant. I can have the same food elsewhere with similar taste and better service at Baia beach club or somewhere else. Or even go to Pane&Vino for good Italian.

Ambience was great. Food was delicious and the service was excellent. It is pricey but the overall experience was a very cozy intimate dinner. It’s out door dining but the fans and misters create a pleasant atmosphere.

Beautiful venue overlooking the ocean although we couldn’t see it because it was dark but all the beautiful lights under the terrace made for a romantic and beautiful ambience. My date had the Seabass which was exceptional and I had the spicy pizza which was delicious. The service was impeccable. A wonderful evening can’t wait to do it again!

Restaurant hors de prix pour une cuisine qui n’a rien de spéciale !
Aucun intérêt si ce n’est que de dépenser de l’argent pour rien !
La location au bord de la plage et le décor sont les seuls points positifs le reste est néant!

Nice outdoor seating with great views of the ocean. Food was great as well as the service. Prices were on the higher side but in line with this type of restaurant and location. All restaurants in this area seem to automatically add on 20% gratuity.

When you want a view and good food you go here. The service was great, the drinks were refreshing and the food was cooked to perfection and very tasty. I had the risotto and my husband had the branzino fish. The coco melon drink … yummy yum. You will love it too because food is the best by the beach.

Definitely a wonderful place to dine early and watch the ocean. Request the high tops for best views. All the entrees were excellent, my entree too rich without a cutting element to clear the heaviness of the sauce. Salad was amazing, off the charts. I skipped dessert. The best is when the staff treats you as the VIP. The entire team, from greeter, to waiters, wine sommelier, and the best runners. Extremely attentive to the water and bread, the ground pepper to olive oil. The weather played a factor as it is monsoon season and we were drenched, but they offered umbrellas. I was with friends, but I think it is a great place for date night. August and September is Miami Spice, so a great way to dine and try a 3 course meal for discounted from menu (the serving size was not noticeable as other restaurants will do). I have zero affiliation with this restaurant, I just want to share.
