Bad service - we made a reservation for 4 and when we got there we ask if we could expand the reservation to 6 people. They told us we needed to wait 45 minutes which we agreed to. 2 hours later we where still waiting. After complaining several times they got us a table where we waited a long time to get them to serve us. We left after dinner very disappointed and frustrated.

The hostesses should treat better the customers . They have the power to sit you in any place they want . They answer you very rude and harsh . They do not care about you !
Since it is a hot spot place on Sundays they think they can treat you worst then a dog . Even insinuate that you do not enough money to be there . It was unbelievable !!!
The food is very good as well the place . But do not expect education from the people that works there .
If you want to be treat even as a normal customer I would not recommend to go there . Choose another place in Miami . There are many hot spots in Miami that knows how important a customer is for the business !

As always the food and service was excellent. The atmosphere was great and we had a great table out by the water. Only issue we had was, halfway through our meal, a table of eight sat down next to our table and three gentlemen were smoking like smoke stacks. It immediately destroyed the atmosphere and the food. The wind was blowing toward us and the smell of the smoke was disgusting. It is a shame that smoking is permitted at the restaurant in the food service and dining areas. I understand that there is a law against smoking inside but since we were out by the water then it is permitted. They should voluntarily choose to not permit smoking in any part of the dining areas. The manager was very nice and he moved us to another table which had no smokers nearby. Thank you for another great evening at Seaspice.

Bouncer made a whole scene about how we couldn’t get in, but he was gonna take care of us (expecting some kind of tip for doing his job). Then blonde hostess said to be completely booked and after 2 minutes I looked on opentable and saw there were plenty of reservations. I wanted a table outside but was asked to spend at least 2 thousand dollars. Overall, seaspice thinks they are some kind of michelin star level restaurant, when the food is mediocre.

The service was not up to usual high standard - we had to wait longer than seemed necessary and the server didn’t one around as much as others I’ve had there - but the ambiance and food were exceptional as usual. And the Cadillac Margarita my wife had put her in a great mood - so much so that she didn’t even mind that our view of the Miami River and and Miami skyline were blocked by a yacht getting the superior service being denied to the regular patrons sitting in the main outside covered dining area.

The food was exceptional but it took over two hours to be seated even with a reservation. We started with a bad taste in our mouths but that quickly changed after dinner. Delicious food but expect a long wait regardless of reservation.

Went there Christmas. Food was good. Sat out side with nice views of the river. Maitre d manager was rude and not helpful. Hostess was also not happy to be working. Few bad apples ruin the experience.

Wonderful birthday experience! The service was absolutely terrific and the food superb. It was pleasant enough to sit outside and after the mega-yacht pulled away we had a spectacular view of the river and Miami skyline. The two-hour maximum was not oppressive, we did not feel rushed in any way. The birthday treat was a nice surprise, they clearly paid attention to the reservation. We ordered from the higher end of the menu so the price was not a surprise, but it is possible to dine for less. Our server (whose name I regrettably don't remember) went the extra mile, posing us for great photos with the skyline in the background. Truly a memorable birthday evening on Christmas Eve!

My mother and I went for Thanksgiving. She had a traditional Thanksgiving meal and I ordered the alaskan king crab pasta. Both were outstanding! Service was awesome and the view was spectacular!

We had an amazing night! My boyfriend proposed me and all the restaurant personal was a part of it, they were really nice and keeping congratulation us all the night. The food es excellent, really tasty. The price is high but it’s worth it. We consider this restaurant it’s a MUST everytime we came to Miami.

Everything was going great ...delicious food, service was ok because the place wasn’t too packed yet. Then the place got busy as we were wrapping up. I’ve been here plenty of times before so I already knew how things get when they get busy. However this time the waitress tried to overcharge me for the tip saying that the 18% that was already included “goes to the house”; and that we should therefore tip her more. Unbelievable. Of course I said no. To top it off, once my charge went through, she came back saying that it did not go through and that she’d like to “walk me through” the process of paying again. Once again, unbelievable!! I showed her the charge that had already come through on my amex app, and she walked away disgruntled. Our bottle was not empty yet she took it and disappeared. Needless to say, I’m done with this place. Not coming back. This is what you get when you hire amateurs and expect 5 star service.

Nice ambiance, view isn't all that nice honestly unless you just enjoy waterfront dining. But there isn't really much to look at besides a few cargo boats. You can kinda see downtown in the corner but that's about all you're getting.

Now onto the food!
We took advantage of Miami Spice for Brunch and tried the Malanga Fritters and Watercress salad for appetizers, Florentine Benedict and Sausage with Polenta for entrees, and both available desserts on the Miami Spice menu which were the tres leches and chocolate-mousse like dessert. Everything was delicious, no complaints at all on food and quality. Quantity was a bit small but I expected that. However if I would've paid full price for those portions, I would've been very upset.

For drinks we had two Mimosas each and that alone cost more than our meals which I thought was outrageous. I expected expensive drinks, but not like that. Twenty dollars for a simple orange juice with a dash of champagne is ridiculous. I've gone to places nicer than this one and paid less.

Service was fine, but could be improved for a place as expensive as this. Every person we dealt with was nice, just not very accommodating. By the end of our meal I didn't know who exactly was our waiter since different people kept coming to our table (IF they came at all). We were helped more by the busboy than our actual waiter. Not to mention the automatic 18% tip included in our bill for a party of only two people.

To sum things up: food and drinks are delicious, just not worth the price at all. Not even the view could make up for it. Service could be better though we didn't deal with any rude employees at all, everyone was nice. Will I come back again? Probably not, but I don't regret coming here.

We ordered from the Miami Spice menu and while the meal was filling overall, I felt like the portions were a bit small. Everything was delicious though and our server, and the other staff who waited on our table, were all helpful and attentive.
