The food and drinks were great. The bier was amazing. Not one complaint
The server didn’t check enough on us, we were constantly waiting for drinks/food
Great service and food was delicious. The views on the patio made this the perfect dinner spot at sunset!
Beautiful views of the sunset! Delicious food. Good service. Get the grilled octopus!
Great view of Miami and sunset!
The food was amazing!!! Very fresh seafood, my table shared the octopus, crab cake and ceviche appetizers, I highly recommend them all.My mom and I had the Lobster and shrimp risotto, my husband had the sea bass. We were all very happy with our choices The views were beautiful we sat on the patio at sunset. It is a pricey place but we were vacationing and heard great things so we had to try it . So worth the price
Perfect place to celebrate a birthday with closest friends. The food was great and the atmosphere was even better.
Excellent dinner at the rusty pelican last night. The steak was perfectly prepared and service was top notch. Of course the million dollar view was unbeatable!
Muy buena lo recomiendo en todos los aspectos es uno de mis lugares favoritos
This place was awesome! The vibe is cool and the views are great!
Our server was Douglas and he was very attentive and friendly!
We loved the food and the presentation.
Julian was a great server, this is a must go to place at least once in a life time the view is incredible and the cocktails are well thought out, the food was unique, I got the whole snapper 10 on presentation 6 on taste and texture a little over cooked so it wasn’t flaky and moist. Scallops were amazing and came with a mountain of color roasted carrots. Will be back again for sure!
Always an amazing experience!
We enjoyed our meal.The service was excellent and very pleasant location.
We made reservation there because wanted to celebrate a Birthday of a very good friend of mine
When we arrived to the restaurant right on time for the 7:00 pm reservation I was given an excuse by the hostess that even though they had my reservation for outside it was not guaranteed that I needed to wait 1:30 to be seated outside and of course Immediately offered for us to seat inside which was NOT Acceptable to us. Because we had a reservation. I asked to talked to a manager which took about 15 minutes to arrive meanwhile they had already schedule for me to seat inside without my consent. Again we said this is NOT Acceptable.
After a small argument with the manager which attended to provide with the same excuses he was able for some miracle to get us an outside table by then 30 minutes has already had passed.
What was clear for me while I was waiting is that all the reservation that were coming in while I was waiting were for outside which clearly makes me believe that This Restaurant deceives the customers promising something that has been overbooked then leaving the customer with a reservation with no other choice but to seat inside which is not the Same.
This restaurant Ethics is completely wrong, lien to and deceiving the customers is just plain not Acceptable especially for the amount of money each plate cost!!!
Food was good and the server was excellent ...
With that view its hard to go wrong. Food was pretty good and our server was a doll but it was a little too loud and crowded.
Food was bland. Very loud. Very rude receptionist. Beautiful location at sunset. Had to ask multiple times for water, napkins and silverware. Not something special.
like dunkin donuts now. not for rich clients. very disappointed.
Made reservation thru Open table and then told we had to wait 45 minutes upon arriving. Also prices were unreasonable for quality and portion of food.
Excellent service and I definitely will recommend to others
I made a reservation to have lunch with my family after my sons Baptism on Sunday, February 28, 2021. I had originally requested to sit outside and when we checked in, the hostesses mentioned it would be an hour extra wait to sit outside and 30 minutes to sit inside. I told her inside was fine and preferable as it was a hot day and we were in suits and formal clothing. When we did get called to be seated, the hostess walks us around the restaurant and can’t seem to find the available table, she then asked us to wait, and then proceeds to sit us outside. We didn’t question it since we just wanted to get seated. The problem arose when there wasn’t any umbrellas open and the sun was hitting us directly, our server was no where to be found and we asked another server who told us he could not move the umbrellas because other EMPTY tables would need them, about an hour later when I asked a hostess walking by, she was able to get someone to get us an umbrella. I am a big fan of this restaurant and come here often. Unfortunately, I have never seen such poor service, we never received napkins, our empty drinks and appetizers plates were never removed from the table. The food took an extremely long time and when the server brought out the food, it almost slid off the wood block and into my hand. I literally caught the plantain chips from my sea bass dish with my hands. I really hope this will get addressed and hope that someone can contact me about this service.
This was an extremely disappointing experience. We were not seated for our 2:45 reservation until after 4 pm (despite being told it would be a 30 min wait) and did not get our food until 5 pm. We were not given any bread either. The restaurant clearly overbooked. If you don’t have room for that number of lunch reservations you shouldn’t make them and should be honest with the customer, rather than making them wait until the dinner menu to be seated. Mini lobster roll portion was microscopic. I normally enjoy this restaurant, but I will not go back again on a weekend anytime soon.
RP was one of my fave spots given its location, views, etc. But this has become a ‘club scene’ not a restaurant anymore. While the service was great and the food was good, the music was blasting and judging by the crowd that was there it has become a club. Not what it used to be which to me is a shame. Probably not going back...
The ambiance and the atmosphere, the server could have been faster at refilling our mimosas but overall the service was great
Loved the ambiance. French toast & coffee was amazing
Cinthia was the incredible, very attentive. Great views, good food.
Simply extraordinary, but the food and the views. From start to finish, every bite was mouth watering succulent heaven for the taste buds. Octopus and oysters were great, some of the best ever. Halibut and snapper were excellent, so well prepared and presented. Key lime pie was unique and delicious. Outstanding.
Excellent place, but there were some people making a lot of noise.
Beautiful restaurant and great experience. Seated promptly with our reservations... restaurant was very busy make reservations to avoid delays
I get it's a Saturday and the restaurant is busy! However, when one waits over 20 minutes for a drink and your waiter is running (yes, running) to the table, literally throwing napkins at you and runs to get plates/silverware......not good. In addition, my husband went in person to the restaurant to setup a surprise cake for my bday. When we arrived the hostess said "where's the cake" looking at me! Oops. Will be hard to go back and justify spending the money again. On a positive note, we sat at the bar waiting for our table. Bartenders could not have been nicer!
The parking situation is terrible. You can either get booted or have your car valeted. An otherwise pleasant evening was wrecked when we came back to our car, in a spot that was not marked with a sign, booted. There was some guy there charging $62 to remove the boot. After paying exorbitant Miami prices for (a very good) dinner, that was just an insult. Until the Rusty Pelican does something to address this issue, I can't recommend them.
It's always been a Miami landmark but they've updated the interior of the restaurant to provide an elegant and contemporary atmosphere with breathtaking oceanfront views. We ordered the 3 Tiered Seafood Tower and it was delicious. Service was perfect... they gave us the space to enjoy the view while providing excellent attention to detail. We truly enjoyed the experience. Definitely will be back soon!
Birthday celebration and the experience didn’t disappoint! Thanks
Staff was extremely friendly and professional! Food was amazing and they gave great suggestions. Originally told it would be a 40 minute wait for outside seating, so we decided to sit inside and were pleasantly surprised when we ended up being seated outside.
very good service but the wait in between appetizer was too long
