Hermoso lugar que permite disfrutar el sunset!!! La comida es espectacular!!!
Came for the view, will go back for the food! Ronaldo was an amazing server and made our experience noteworthy. Thank you Ronaldo!
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.
Staff as a whole were impersonal and inattentive. Food was tasty though, with a great view.
Nice place, good food, but the service not so good.
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.
The restaurant staff was the best part of the experience! From the reception staff to the bartenders, to the waitress...everyone was welcoming and accommodating! Wonderful experience!
Phenomenal dining experience, exceptional views of sunset over Miami skyline.
This is one of the small exceptions where you actually get a great view AND good food and service ! have been here multiple times , highly recommend sitting outside for sunset.
Fantastic evening. Outstanding service. amazing food and the dessert was the best ever. Beautiful Miami Skyline view.
Holiday and Birthday
Food great. Noise level high and parts of restaurant need to be cleaned a bit better. Floors need to be updated
Good good food !
Would definitely return again to try some more dishes and some different drinks
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.
Service was great. Food was once again amazing. Waiter was very attentive and kind
Outside tables very low quality for the cost of food
The place and the ambience fantastic! The service was fabulous!
The food - not so much! It took a very short time for the food to arrive after we placed the order - I am convinced it was previously prepared and heated up slightly. My $40 lobster benedict although good to the taste - the lobster was cold, the eggs over done, the potatoes luke warm.
The mimosas were very good!
If you are too busy to prepared benedicts a la carte then take them off the menu!
Lala our server went above and beyond to ensure our group had an enjoyable brunch. Her service and attention to our table was beyond expected, and she truly made our brunch memorable with our guests who were visiting from out of town and shared that was their favorite meal while in Miami for the week. Thank you LALA!
Excellent food excellent service and excellent location all really very good..⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Amazing food, great service and a BEAUTIFUL VIEW!
The food was good but the service only fair. We had to wait a while for a table, even with reservations. They said over an hour for outside so we sat inside and they put us in a remote area all the way in the back. Took a while to get served. Food good but adult beverages filled to the top with ice and pricey. That’s how they make their money.
This is an update. My daughter left her pocketbook. It took us days to retrieve it because the staff kept telling us it wasn’t there. My wife phoned and talked to them in Spanish and suddenly it appeared. No country for old gringoes!!!!
We decided to have dinner again at the same time. But as usual they said no outdoor seating available. So we left. They kept giving this same line to everyone that walked in. The attractiveness of the place is being outside by the water and why would we drop 300-400 dollars to just sit at a boring table in the very back of the restaurant? Might as well get delivery then and save the Uber fare. In NYC you can reserve outdoor seating and not get a surprise when you arrive. We are so done with this restaurant. Someone is getting rich and having a grand old time... but it’s not us.
Beautiful atmosphere, food is amazing, and my waiter was super nice & friendly
Excellent food, beautifully presented and taste was delicious. The appetizer portions are very small, not really good for sharing with more than 3 people.
Really nice and relaxing with excellent views. The cocktails where great a little pricey but really good
Had reservations still couldn’t get a table with the view we were expecting. We paid for valet just for them to hit the wall in the parking lot and messed up the bumper of my car.
Food was ok, service was slow (but we were ok with that for this occasion), very loud music, but AMAZING views! It's definitely worth it just for the views.
Great location with amazing views of Miami, food quality and good service!
Great evening at Rusty Pelican, magnificent view, excellent food and service, as always
Food was not great
One of the best views in Miami. Food and service were amazing. Valentina went the extra mile to make sure we had an amazing time.
My son graduation celebration from college
Great food, fun atmosphere, from the staff and a relaxing environment
Doug was amazing!
We were indoors with a beautiful view of the Miami skyline on a gorgeous day. Excellent service and food. The endless mimosas were fantastic.
The food was great . The outside door was very nice and peaceful.
Our seasonal home is on South Beach, but we wanted to take our visiting daughter and son-in-law someplace off of the Beach to give a different feel for Miami....The Rusty Pelican hit the mark for a great experience, fabulous view and delicious food! We loved the honey glazed cornbread with cheddar butter...and since neither of our “kids” can do gluten, I had more than my fair share....it was addictive. The grilled octopus appetizer and shortrib empanadas were great starters. Our party of four tried Scallops, Seabass, Halibut and Salad with Salmon. All were delicious, beautifully presented and had interesting sauces and accompaniments! We skipped dessert, as our guests need Gluten Free and Dairy Free ....easy to find on the dinner menu, not as much on dessert. The service was good, but not exceptional and was not the most memorable part of our dinner. We ordered plantain mash and got Yukon mashed potatoes (I do understand how hard it is to hear through masks! )
We were seated in the bar which was a bit loud, but still had a window view of the Bay and the City. We were looking for a special evening and we got it!
Food had poor flavor. Expensive dishes and few options on the menu for entrees. Great ambiance and fantastic view, but that was not enough. Not good value for money.
