Guillermo was an excellent server. He made a great restaurant a great experience for all. He was engaging with the kids and made them feel welcome in an adult setting.

Had a wonderful night for my anniversary dinner. Unfortunately forgot the servers name but he was great. We were outside with the best view of Miami, but then it’s started raining and we were quickly moved to an inside table. We have seafood tower, salmon and ceviche. Great time!

Stunning views great service food board for two was just dreadful the fish was severely overcooked and the steak tasted like it came out of the microwave. I have had very good meals here before this one was extremely disappointing

Known for it’s beautiful views across the Bay to Miami. Recommend the fried snapper. Oysters are overpriced for what you get. Great classic mixed drinks. Annoying that you have a reservation, but still have to wait once you arrive. Valet parking was chaotic.

Our dinner was great and our server very good. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary.
Only problem was as we were leaving my husband fell and no one from the staff assisted him. He was assisted by another customer. Totally unacceptable !
Fortunately it was not serious and not hurt. It could have been , he is 84 years old !!!

Food was not that good, LOBSTER AND SHRIMP RISOTTO didn’t taste like risotto just rice. My surf and turf Grilled Filet Mignon was well over cooked. The place is beautiful and great ambiance. The quality of the food for the price you pay is not good quality.

Esperábamos mucho más del lugar, la presentación de las mesas, sillas y servicios muy básicos y anticuados
La comida cara y mala, los calamares fritos eran los restos del calamar, las hamburguesas... el Mac Donald es mejor.... , comentario de mis hijos...pan añejo... solo por $19, el ceviche incomible, podrido!
El ruido ... INSOPORTABLE!!!! , , no se podía conversar, celebrábamos el cumpleaños 70 de mi madre , y tuvimos que tapar el parlante con ropa para poder tener un poco de paz ...!!! Para eso voy a bailar , no a almorzar.
No volvería jamás !!!!
“Rasca Pelican” es mejor nombre
Una lástima !!!!!, se podría hacer algo mucho mejor en ese lugar con tan bonita vista.

The service was terrible. We waited forever for a waiter to take our order. We had no utensils or plates for the appetizer. The Calamari was overcooked and greasy. The meals we good, but not at the correct temperature. The Key Lime pie was terrible.

We came for a special occasion. From the greeting to the servers we had nothing but rude comments and poor service. We drove an hour out of the way because we thought this would be the best place to celebrate. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement.

It was my first time at the Rusty Pelican. The food and the service were great. However for that kind of price I expect more ambience. It was so noisy you could hardly have a conversation. It had the charm of a foodhall in a train station. Very crowded, too. I won’t be returning.

Being told you have to wait 30 minutes when you have a reservation is nit acceptable
Then being seated inside the bar room when we told the hostess mi wife has earrings aids issues in noisy surroundings
Ruined our last evening in Miami and the food was not so great

The view was lovely from our table. Our server, Andrew, was exceptional. Oysters, Caesar salad were yummy. I loved the fried capers on my salad. Day Boat scallops with carrots, were wonderful. The whole snapper was amazing. Key Lime pie was circular, and yummy. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We were on vacation and golfing over in key Biscayne and saw that restaurant, so called and got a table outside. Amazing views over the water the food was outstanding and our waitress was incredible. A little pricey, but when you have that kind of experience you don’t mind spending extra money. We were in Miami for a week did a lot of outdoor dining, this was by far our favorite restaurant. It will be a definite do over next time we are down
