Seafood
The Ocean Grill, formerly known as the Pool and Beach Bar, debuts this season with a new menu, wood-fire grill, and an expanded dining deck with extra beachfront seating. The open-air restaurant amidst the tropical foliage of South Beach is just steps away from the beach. Tall wood beams frame this cabana designed with modern Asian finishes. This culinary experience is unique to any other outside dining in South Beach with water views in every direction; guests can look out in front of them and enjoy the refreshing breeze of the Atlantic Ocean or turn around and gaze at The Setai’s three infinity edge pools. Ocean Grill offers a Mediterranean-inspired menu whose custom built wood-fire grill gives each dish a rustic flare. Guests can enjoy a wide range of standout dishes including Spanish Octopus on the grill, Yellowfin Tuna Tartre, Mediterranean Branzino and the exotic White Truffle Pizza, “the diamond of the kitchen”.

We love Ocean Grill! Our server, Daniella, has waited on us a few times & she is the best! The food is fabulous especially the Sea Bass & Spaghetti with Lobster. You will not be disappointed! We have been to many restaurants in Miami Beach & this is definitely one of the best!

The food, the ambiance was just fabulous. My hubby and I couldn’t ask for better location- the restaurant literally steps away from the ocean. Of course it’s Ocean Grill @ Setai

A beautiful setting overlooking the boardwalk and the beach, fresh Ocean breeze was nice and felt safe for COVID. We tried both the regular menu and Miami Spice. The regular menu (lamb chops) was excellent, but the Miami Spice menu disappointed. Really needed a magnifying glass to find the minuscule portions of food served. The Octopus was good, but absurdly small portion. The agnolotti was ok, but also ridiculously small portion. Also, although we noted we were celebrating a birthday, the staff totally forgot. Service was also somewhat slow, didn’t receive our bottle of wine until we were done with our appetizer. They also didn’t have most of the wines on the digital online wine list, which we didn’t find out about until about 20 minutes after we ordered our first bottle. They returned and directed us to a paper list with about 10 bottles on it, a fraction of the long online list. Very poorly handled. On a positive note, the chocolate dessert was excellent (and was actually a decent size portion). This place has a lot of promise, but service needs to be significantly improved, and they need to provide normal size portions of food, especially considering the steep prices.

food is tasty,
service ok, not great
I can't understand that the filet comes with mashed and mushrooms, but only the steak arrives, and I have to ask where the sides are. And the kitchen hadn't prepared them yet!

It was gorgeous, it is inside of a hotel I think so it was a little bit confusing to find, but then you do find it 😍 so worth it. Super high end!

Poor service and poorly managed. Our food came out sporadically and we had to continue to ask for each item. Food was cold that should have been hot. The wait staff is not attentive and there is no customer service here. Drinks also took a long time and had to check on multiple items.

unfortunately the server was not interested in giving good service and acted put out when you ask for anything.. The steak we had was expensive put full of fat and not the quality that we expected. The ambience is great. Wish the rest could have been as great as we had hoped.

Food was tasty, server was slow to return to our table. Drinks were up on the bar and she had not brought them over until she saw us looking that way! She did check on us multiple times after we got our food. Slow to bring check and slow to return to pick up our cards.
But, we have reservations for Friday night and Wednesday night with other friends.

Great food. Service was very slow and had to ask for multiple things twice. They wanted nothing to do with our kids.. literally asked 3 times to bring them water. Nice spot with great food. Wouldn’t recommend for families.
