This is a Miami icon and it’s no mystery why. The prime location and bay view to Brickell and the Miami port is reason enough. Sometimes properties with great views have sub-standard food but not at Rusty Pelican. Every item is beautifully prepared and bountiful. The oysters are amazing and so is the price of the bottomless mimosas. The view is beautiful at any table you choose but outside seating is the best. On Sunday however, if you’re not a fan of dining with exceptionally loud music, you may want to sit outside. For a casual dining experience, the loud, lounge music doesn’t fair well for conversation and so the result is people screaming over each other. Evening dining is romantic with the view of the twinkling lights of Miami - pure magic. Five stars! Irene our server was great.

Excellent as usual! I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was moist and flavorful. They serve it with smoked mashed sweet plantains which sounds a little strange but tastes so good!

Enjoyed Sunday brunch here. The food was great. Enjoyed the king crab from raw bar, lobster roll and crab huevos rancheros. Great flavors and fresh. Only complaint was the king crab was one large claw. For the price, seemed like it should be more. Otherwise, staff was great and made sure fire pits were lit and we stayed warm since it was a little cool. Mimosa was served in a large wine glass rather than small "typical" champagne flute, which was appreciated and matched the price. View is hard to beat; sure it's even better at night with downtown lit up and reflecting off the water.

This was my first time. I had a 9 pm reservation we got there and asked for a window view and they made sure they accommodated us within 15 minutes which was amazing ! I had the shrimp and lobster risotto and my girlfriend had the salmon both dishes were phenomenal! Between the lighting and music it felt amazing! Definitely two thumbs up. Will be going there again. Can’t wait to go back

The Rusty Pelican is the best!!!! Last night was my first time going there and it for sure won't be my last... The Rusty Pelican does not disappoint... The food was amazing and beyond delicious... Health and safety of their patrons are top priorities of the whole staff... Our server Danny provided outstanding service... He was so intuitive to our needs... I love when I don't have to ask for anything like utensils and napkins... Danny was great!!!

The place is very nice, especially the outside area. Inside the tables are a little bit close to each other.
The food was not too tasty, my husband didn't enjoy it and I think it was average, not good for the price they have. Presentation was excellent, the flavor was a bit plain, that's all, specially for a fish.

Very impressed. Food was incredible. Flavorful, fresh, high quality ingredients. Creative menu, dishes were esthetically pleasing and were perfectly executed based on menu description. Wait staff and hostess were great and very attentive. Drinks were phenomenal too. The views are nice and the interior of the restaurant is clean and well decorated, very nice ambiance inside. Would definitely visit again, and also highly recommend to fellow foodies and lovers of fine dining.

Really good meal out with the family. Great location with great views of the bay and downtown Miami at night. All four entrées were really well done. Only slight downside with the calamari appetizer. Our server, Roma, was knowledgeable and attentive… Made for a good evening.

We sat for quite a while without a waitress finally we called the manager over and she bought us drinks. My husband loved the sea bass but my shrimp and lobster risotto was horrible the peas were hard as a rock and although they said the lobster was maine it definitely was not. It was hard to get a waiter to take care of our needs. The manager was very nice and comp most of our meal but they need to work on their food and service

Ordered the roasted chicken and had 0 flavor it was just a boiled small to medium size half chicken . My table had no light and was very hard to see the food, Asked to be seated by the window because outside was full even when I booked a reservation and was not able change the table . Sangria pitcher was water down . Server was nice . I went with 4 other people for a birthday and the restaurant didn’t even give the guy a small sweet as appreciation even when the bill was over 400$. It’s not what it used to be before . Better go someplace else .

I’ve been here dozens of times prior to Covid, but upon this last visit I don’t think I’ll be returning again. Went for brunch for my dads birthday, the food wasn’t very good and took forever, and the restaurant was packed inside, no distance whatsoever between tables, everyone was so close to each other, we honestly did not feel safe at all. The one plus is the view and our waitress was nice and attentive.
