My special event was great! Service was excellent and fast.
We went for my husband’s birthday. Everyone was so pleasant and wished him a happy birthday. The service was excellent.
The service was lacking where we were seated out side. Our waiter was lacking in energy, charisma, and just all around unenthusiastic. He was rather slow to the table as well; taking a bit too long to fill our glasses with water, checking on our table and getting the bill was tough too. after 15-20mins of just waiting, I had to flag the waiter down for the check and it was obvious we were finished eating for a while.
Outside the flies were awful. It was not just one or two but closer to a dozen at a time trying to get at our meal. They seemed to show up just when the food came out and slowly disappeared about half way through the meal.
I used to be a rather popular food blogger in Las Vegas; getting invitations to sample and write about some of the finest restaurants in the world. With that being said, the food was very tasty; not lacking in depth; with flavor layered perfectly and balanced in every bite. However, the price was not balanced to the quality and quantity of the food. A single crab cake ran $21. The quality was on point but the size of the crab cake was a failure. My fiance ordered a deconstructed poke dish and the same could be said of that. The main course was truly delectable! A 24 oz steak tenderloin for two with roasted vegetables in a red wine demi glaze. But at nearly $100, I expected more.
In all, our bill was $230 with a 20% tip (Though I felt not warranted) the total was $280. This is a wonderful spot for a special meal as long as you pick the right spot. I do not regret eating out side. The views were incredible and the flies come with the territory. As long as you have a solid waiter, its a good food stop for a special occasion but I wouldn't make a once a month eatery.
Excellent food and service! Our waiter was very attentive and presented us with an anniversary dessert!
Upon arrival we were surprised with a card wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Will definitely be going back!
Great place for a special occasion! Great service, views, and food. We came here for our anniversary and loved it. We recommend!
We ate here while on a girls trip to celebrate our friends birthday. We had an awesome waiter and great service . It’s what you would want and should expect at a fine dining establishment. Everyone was pleasant.
Service was excellent and quick. Food was amazing. I don't know if they Filet or Dessert was better. They were both incredible. I might just get the dessert from there weekly as a meal.
Terribly noisy. Crappy music. Terribly slow. Waiter was nice and understanding—so I tipped him well. But took 40 minutes for appetizer and 30 additional minutes for main course.
Perfect outdoor location! Outstanding service.
Best of South Beach.
The restaurant was good, but alas I found the service ho, hum. Had great cocktails outside - which were delicious. Our meal was generally delicious although my family thought the Porterhouse that they had asked for Pittsburgh medium was not really well seasoned. We also ordered the Broccolini that was supposed to have sundried tomatoes on it among other things, when it was brought to the table it had nothing on it, when I commented they took it away, and brought it back with two sundried tomatoes not a vote getter.
It was my boyfriends birthday. His first time there. We enjoyed it so much we will be back soon. We had 2 filet mignon with lobster tail and every bite was better and better. We also enjoyed the lobster Mac and cheese and whipped potatoes. Perfect is the only way to describe it. Also the wine selection is wonderful.
They even gave my boyfriend a birthday card and a complimentary dessert. Such a simple but nice gesture.
Service was as expected from a restaurant nothing special. Food was a disappointment. The pea soup and carpaccio were alright. The main course was a disappointment. The meat was bland. I requested the Cajun marinated bone in rib eye but I think the forgot to marinate it, the steak was just tasteless. The lamb and other steak the same. I’ve had better tasting steaks at Outback at a fraction of the cost. The only up side was that they complemented the cake for dessert since it was my wife’s birthday. Overall spent over $500 but we were disappointed with the taste of the food.
Was a great experience as always
Server was clueless
We had a nice time but the waiter put in the wrong order and they brought out the wrong steak. We ordered a tomahawk and they brought another type of steak. We had to wait for almost another hour to get the right steak. We have been to many high end restaurants and this has never happened. They were nice about it and gave us a credit but we did expect a perfect dinner at that price. Even with the credit we paid alot of money to get the wrong food and wait an hour. By the time it came out, we weren’t hungry anymore. We took it home for leftovers.
Lovely waterfront view at the southern tip of Miami Beach. Great steaks and excellent service.
The experience here was amazing. Our server was amazing and very attentive. The speed in which the food came out was reasonable. We were seated at 830 and by 915 we had our entrees. All of the food was cooked to perfection and turned a non steak eater into a lover! I used dinner for my proposal and the waiter assisted us in making it special.
I would highly recommend this place for special occasions.
Lobster, fries and shrimp appetizer were fantastic. The wait staff seems very disorganized, apparently a staff meeting a six o'clock-so we did not have a waiter. Very strange. I had to beg for a martini. Once we did have a waiter-she was very good. I asked for a medium rare filet. My steak was seared and totally rare not close to medium rare, and it was actually barely warm. Good quality meat. Fantastic view for ship and people watching. Management needs to help manage their waitstaff more effectively.
Simply wonderful !!!
I reserve a table a month ago
I wanted a table outside for the fireworks
They tol me that they don’t reserve outside at the time fir dinner
A big disappointment
Last time was at this restaurant last fall, the menu was much better. Tuna was tastier last year. I also did not like the dessert menu. At this time I like only Aperol Spritz 🍹
Food was AMAZING
4th of July
Great 4th of July dinner - top friendly service and really good steaks. Family loved the visit and the top deck provides awesome views over Miami and the fireworks
Steak was not cooked correctly and waiter never apologized and neither did the manager. Ordered carrot cake to go and when I got home it was coconut cake.
They did give us a free desert, but it seemed reluctantly.
Fantastic ribeye steak
Superb!!! The Tomahawk for two is definitely recommended.
Let’s just say there were several stray cats at our feet during our meal on the patio - not ideal but food and service were still good.
We've dined at Smith and Wollensky 4 years ago, and was excited to go back for our anniversary. Unfortunately this experience was less than enjoyable. From the moment we walked in the customer service was lacking. No one was at the hostess stand when we walked in. When asked if we wanted inside or outside we responded outside and was told to follow the lack carpet to the outdoor dinning. Once we arrived, again there was no hostess. The sign said wait to be seated. We stood and waited for 7 minutes before a staff member who was making small talk with a couple of guest at the bar said sit anywhere. All of the tables by the water were dirty so we waited for someone to come and clean a table. Unfortunately the wait became lengthy so my husband went inside to get help. They guy that came outside to clean the table wasn't thrilled to help. After our table was cleaned we waited an additional 8 minutes for a waiter to come and take our drink order. The waiter was less than apologetic to address our situation. So we decided based on the horrible customer service, it wasn't worth spending our money and left.
Wonderful. The steak wasn’t what we expected as we had to send back the first time and the second the steak was very thin and a bit small.
Presentation extremely well; so are the staff - courteous and very helpful. First time at this place and food taste took our breath away. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome is what I have to say. Yes, a li'l pricey; but it's all worth it.
Pretty average service small portions for the price. I enjoyed the steak it was a little cold in the center. The veggies were cold and not very well prepared. I have been to cheaper and much better steak houses.
The steak for two was great! Good amount, great service!
This was my mother’s 80th birthday. It was very well staffed and a wonderful evening for her.
Our server Berry was amazing!! So genuine and truly enjoys the food industry. He made several suggestions on food and drinks. Was attentive to our needs. The outside view is gorgeous. Great date spot!
The service was very good. Our waiter was excellent... good recommendations about food
Great location right on the tip of South Beach. We used valet parking at $10.00- no issues at all. We sat outside, wonderful view and very good service. The tables closest to the water have very large umbrellas to secure shade. We had both steaks and seafood and everything was very fresh, flavorful and tasty. A very good experience all around.
Great table, excellent food, excellent and attentive service
