Awesome! Will definitely return.
Great Food and service!
Short ribs were great. Halibut and snapper were v tasty too. Panna cotta was not what we expected but very good.
My girlfriend and I had the tasters menu and it was phenomenal!
Excellent restaurant in Fountainebleau Resort. Lively atmosphere! Delicious meal. Must get the braised short rib pasta. Our service was friendly and impeccable! A must go if you are in Miami Beach!
Everything was incredible. Ryan was very helpful and knowledgeable, and the food was positively divine!
Great food! Excellent service.
One of the top 5 meals of my entire life.
The food never disappoints .
Prices are extremely high for the amount of food you get - portions are so small and are more like a tiny appetizer rather than a meal. I had the pumpkin ravioli and although it was delicious, I received approximately 8 pieces of ravioli on my plate for $22.00.
This place was so knowledgeable of my allergies and made my birthday and vacation with my friends extremely memorable!!
We had a wonderful dinner, as always. Scarpetta is always consistent and delicious.
I have eaten there several times before. It is always uncomfortably noisy. The service was unusually poor this visit. It took an hour for the meal to reach the table after ordering which was unusual. It is so dark the menu is unreadable.
Had a wonderful birthday dinner with my wife. Stone crabs were delicious. Loved the potatoes and drinks. Great waiter too. Service is excellent.
The bar area and restaurant are gorgeous and I knew the minute we walked in that it would be a very special experience. The staff was knowledgeable and welcoming and allowed us to take our time with the menu as we enjoyed delicious cocktails. The food was so fresh and savory. We all ordered something different and could not decide which was our favorite. Outstanding start to finish!
Delicious food and great service!
The most outstanding thing for us was the service, and next was the ambiance, in particular the bar area is beautiful. Our server was extremely helpful, very knowledgable, friendly but not annoying, and paced the service perfectly. After asking a few questions he had the bartender make some perfectly suited and crafted cocktails. We enjoyed them at a leisurely pace. After inquiring about items we liked in the menu we decided to order the tasting menu. There were some major hits ans some misses. The glaring missing was the pasta which was weird bc everyone raves about it. It was red sauce with basil etc. The fish was excellent. The rest was good but not mind blowing.
Private party made noise for other patrons unenjoyable. Rushed service, courses came nearly all at once. Many better places to try.
Very inconsistent food. And service started off ok but when a large party arrived, we were left for dead.
Though expensive, the food here is absolutely excellent!
There really are not a lot of options for dining in mid-Miami Beach. Scarpetta is definitely one of the better ones, especially if you are looking for gluten free options. Like so many places in Miami Beach during the high season, the restaurant is noisy and crowded, especially on the weekends. The service was very attentive and we did not feel rushed. Portions are generous but not overdone. The fois gras and duck ravioli was amazing. They even serve fresh baked gluten free rolls if requested. A little on the pricey side, but not outrageous.
Everything was amazing except the reservation. We scheduled at 7:30 and showed up early. They seated us and took care of us but I have gotten emails saying we didn’t show up
Service was great food was very good.
Lovely! Excellent food and service ! Beautiful restaurant!
Outstanding food and very friendly, helpful staff. The only dissatisfaction was that it was so dark it was difficult to read the menu and more importantly, to see the food! As they say, you eat first with your eyes. In this case, the flavors were perfection but everything was muted to the eye due to dim lighting. For me, seeing the colors and beauty in the ingredients and plating is part of the experience, and that was missing. Otherwise, a great experience and the absolute best pasta ever...it’s true that Scott Conant knows pasta!
We had the octopus, duck & foie gras ravioli, lobster tagliatelle, charred broccolini, sautéed mushrooms, coconut panna cotta in guava soup, and pumpkin profiteroles with chocolate sauce. Highly recommend all!
The Fountainbleau is a magnificent hotel . Scarpetta restaurant is beautiful . The ambience , service and food were great . Our server was so helpful with the menu . My only complaint was the restaurant was very busy and extremely loud . I did not expect that .
Food was absolutely amazing. I live in New Jersey and every time I travel to Miami I have to visit. This was my 4th time at this restaurant and as always was completely satisfied. The spaghetti are soooooo good.... Can’t wait to go back !!
I did keep my reservation and enjoyed the meal.
Never disappoints! Excellent food, great service - always a special evening. Hard to beat!
Very disappointing. Food was mediocre and overpriced
Vacationing in Miami. Best pasta we’ve ever had!
We love this place one of Miami gems , couldn't find better service than this restaurant,the food is best of the best italian,and the decor amazing.love love love this place.
Terrible experience, my girlfriend had a plastic object in her meal, tuna appetizer had no taste, atmosphere is terrible, hound children laying down on long booth seating, felt like I was at IHOP, will never go back
Tasting menu was good but timing was way off. Portions were larger than they should be for a tasting menu (translate: we were stuffed by the end of the meal), but were very tasty. Biggest problem was that the entree took 30-40 minutes after the prior course. Too long. The manager was very apologetic and comped us our drinks, but it kind of killed the experience. Like many Miami restaurants, having automatic gratuities included in your check seems to result in poor customer service.
This was our most favorite(and expensive) family dinner on our vacation!
Loved the waiters attention to the kids and us. We chose fabulous wine and indulged with the kiddos:)
Terrible service. Our food took over 70 minutes to come and was served as we were about to get up and leave. For our troubles, the waiter gave us an extra pasta dish (....?). He did have time to tell his life story about being from Italy to the table next to us (who he wasn't even serving) yet forgot to put our order in. And then ran away and had another waiter attend to our table for the rest of the evening. The restaurant decor is confused, as is the service. Price point is fair, assuming your food ever comes. Food was good for the most part but grilled octopus was rubbery. Go to Baoli instead.
Service was rushed and the food was extremely overpriced for what it was.
The food was delicious, as well as great service and nice ambiance.
My husband and I were in Miami on vacation and decided to make a reservation because we were celebrating my birthday. We booked on Open Table and noted the celebration. We previewed the menu and so we already knew the prices were going to be a little high.
With lots of dim lighting, the atmosphere was quite romantic. We arrived as the sun was setting and could see that the ocean view would be quite beautiful during the day. (The restaurant is located within the hotel strip and can only be accessed via the hotel entrance.)
We were seated right away and the service was very friendly. The menu was not very big. This made choosing each course a bit easy. We ordered cocktails and enjoyed bread to start . My husband and I then shared the octopus. It was fantastic; we were glad our waitress recommended it. Because the pasta is made in-house, we each decided to order a pasta dish. Each was extremely delicious and perfectly portioned. We were too full for dessert, but the wait staff came out with two chocolate truffles and a candle in honor of my birthday. I was extremely impressed by the quality of food and service!
If ever in the area, this is THE place to have a special meal! Our meal and experience was worth every penny.
