We come here a few times a year and usually everything is fantastic. Last night food was good and atmosphere perfect as always. Service was terrible…I do mean terrible, especially for the prices. We had to ask for water 4 times before getting it. Ordered a bottle of white wine, it was warm. Got it chilled. Then we had to get up and get the bottle from the ice anytime we wanted more. Never once did the server refill the glass. Silverware was dropped off for 5 individually wrapped with 3 napkins. 3 napkins for a 5 top table! When finishing and our server came to bus the table. She would just point and you and then motion for you to give her your plate. No asking if you were finished. All around rude and bad service.

The food came out literally 2 minutes after ordering which means it was all precooked and sitting under a heat lamp. The lobster, shrimp risotto had no flavor and the lobster had obviously been sitting under the lamp. It was spongy

the restaurant was more like a beach club atmosphere. Diners in sandals and tank tops. Horrible business setting.

If I hadn’t pushed enough, I would have ended spending close to $600 dining on a side corridor, with little view, next to a staircase with literally a cleaning mop leaning on it.
Those tables should not even be offered. That was offensive and clearly decisions taken by unprofessional or inexperienced hosting personnel which could harm an iconic Miami venue.
Luckily I didn’t settle and eventually got a table that matches the experience and ambiance that is expected.

GiGi was a great waitress
The halibutt was overcooked and the presentation of my son’s plate was horrible-halibutt tossed on top of cheese macaroni in a bowl; chef must have been off that night.
You let people take dogs now? Some lady’s dog kept barking and she let it pea on the tree right next to my table.
I’ve enjoyed being a patron, but this was a very disturbing night.

Not only are the views picturesque with stunning sunset to sparkling city lights that twinkle in the water but the food is like art work, a combination of flavors that will have your mouth watering. This is definitely a must go to when visiting Miami

I selected Rusty Pelican as it's my mom's go to spot for her birthday. We showed up ahead of time as was given a seat outside, we waited about 15mins and no waiter showed up. The restaurant was not busy and more than manageable with the amount of staff. We then went back inside and asked for another table/waiter. we were placed close to the main bar, the waiter was nice but overwhelmed. Drinks only showed up after asking multiple times, food was missing from the order, just a miserable birthday dinner night out. Shame, this used to be a high-end place. Now run of the mill spot.

We were a group of 10 young seniors celebrating somebody’s 80th birthday! They exceeded our expectations in every way particularly with our waiter Alonzo! He could not have been friendlier Or provided better service. We were all very impressed! Thank you Alonzo

I loved everything about our visit except one thing. The table next to us had 2 dogs a husky & another big dog! The husky was shedding & the hair would sometimes come over to our table. I didn’t say anything at the moment because it was my parents 53rd Anniversary & I didn’t want anything to spoil it. I think that if the restaurant wants to allow animals they should be sat outside but not inside a restaurant.

It was a wonderful place to dine at. We went our first time for a birthday and it was a fregar experience. The service was excellent and we were quickly seated after arriving. Afterwards, the menu was brought and our waitress Thalia was very kind and attentive. The food was quickly brought and there was a positive environment both between the employees and the people there.

Very hot and sunny with not enough umbrellas for the tables, so coveted tables outside go empty. Also got charged $50 for valet parking because we took a walk after dining. No warning about this anywhere, nor should it be happening. Very disappointed and it reflects badly on me as a local who brought an out-of-town friend. Will NOT return.
