Excellent view from outside and a friendly and helpful staff. The Belvedere dirty martini was top notch and the steak was finished perfectly.

We've been going to Smith & Wollensky for several years now for our anniversary, we made reservations for 9 p.m. we got there a little early around 8:30 so they asked us to wait by the bar which was a very hot because the AC had broken, while we were at the bar we ordered some drinks and a dozen oysters as we we're eating one of the waiters was behind the bar apparently someone had made a mistake in ordered dozen oysters so he offered them to us we said thank you I told him it was our anniversary he said no worries it was his pleasure when the tab came they had added the second order of oysters to the tab. It was a little after 9 but no one had came to get us so when I inquired about our table we waited another 5 minutes before we got one. The server was excellent at least she did her job right.

We sat down at 6 for dinner and didn’t leave until about 9. People at another table got their food before us. Manager came and apologized. Steak was very salty and creamed spinach was room temperature. Wasn’t worth the money we paid for the meal.

Valentines Day dinner. Ordered the swinging tomahawk. It was good, but Food came about an hour and 15 minutes after seating. Unfortunately, by that time I wasn’t that hungry anymore. Service was attentive.

El tartar de steak delicioso, la ensalada cesar de las mejores que he comido. El bone-in NY steak decepcionante porque fueron incapaces de hacer un término medio en la carne en 3 oportunidades, 2 veces Rare y una re-cocción del primer steak que me trajeron quemado por afuera totalmente. No entiendo como un restaurante de esta categoría no fue capaz de servir un término medio perfecto.

The fact we seemed to be forgotten in the corner of the outdoor seating. We had to wait for 15 mins to be seated outside, so we were standing there with nothing for 15 mins. Until a table was cleaned and ready, and the table I was sat at was still dirty.

The service was great. I think the quality of the steak was not as good as some other steak houses I have visited. The steak I had was charred to much on the outside which really masked the taste of what I assume was a good steak. I thought it was cooked a little too much. For the prices I think it would have been better.

they do not make better settings! People watching, water, ocean liners...all that Miami Beach has to offer in one place! Food is outstanding although pricey. Wait staff is excellent. Portions huge and menu selections impressive. When food was delayed because of large crowd on Valentines Day our great waiter explained, apologized and refilled my glass of wine.

Understanding it was Valentines Day but the service was unacceptable for a nice restaurant. The cost for four was $600 so certainly we expected nothing but first class service.

Once we finally received our meal the rib eye was rare and we ordered medium - we sent it back to be redone. Very frustrating for the other guests who waited patiently for the corrected steak.

The server was expected to do everything from taking orders /refilling water and clearing the tables. We were there for 3 hours and finally all got up to meet him to get our check after asking several times. We have previously dined at Smith and Wollensky and it was very nice.

My husband and I ate here for our five year anniversary. We don’t eat out at expensive places very often but we do know what to expect as far as quality of service and quality of food. We both felt the service was not equivalent to what you would pay at a high dollar steakhouse. It was lacking in attention. We weren’t checked on for long lengths of time, poured our own wine in our glasses with the bottle we bought, food took an hour and half to come out. We ordered the aged ribeye. It was not flavorful or tender like a $68 ribeye should be. We honestly felt it was of grocery store quality. We also ordered a lobster tail to go with it and there was absolutely zero seasoning or flavor on that. The view from the top of the deck is a great one and you can enjoy seeing boats and cruise ships as they go by. The truffle Mac and cheese was by far the best part of the meal as the Brussels sprouts weren’t fully cooked. My suggestion is just have some drinks and find a different steakhouse. We paid $234 for the meal and could have eaten at our favorite steakhouse in Austin, trulucks for half the price and enjoyed the food and service so much more.

I was looking forward to celebrating a birthday with my significant other last week.
I made a reservation one full month ahead of time and even took the time to notify the restaurant of us celebrating a birthday.
Regardless of this, it too over 30 min to even be sat at a table. Once we were sat, it took over 15 min to be seen by anyone, not even a glass of water, once we did order we had a great waiter so I was hopeful things would get better. Ordering our appetizer and meal at the same time I thought we would be fine.

It took over an hour and a half to get our food served. While the manager did come over at this point to apologize and explain they were aware of the problem, it still took an additional 30 min to have the food served to our table.

My reservation was set for 8pm we did not receive food until 1045pm.
Needless to say we did not stay after with dessert to celebrate the birthday.

I would like to note that we did tip over 20% as I understand this was not the fault of the waiter. Regardless, knowing that I would be sending a few hundred dollars for this special dinner coupled with the fact that I made this reservation well on advanced, there needs to be serious changes to the way customers are treated at this location.
Very disappointed and most likely will never be back here.

Having eaten in their flagship store in NYC for years, we wanted the same experience here in Florida. I must admit the restaurant is beautifully done. We had to send back our steak for more fire. We ordered medium and it came rare. That always puts a damper on things. Our server was very nice and attentive, but it took a little too longer for everything. Not a bad thing, but the poor guy seemed frazzled. All in all a 4 and would try it again.

The experience was fair. Waiter was nice enough but did not have a good balance of knowing when to come to the table or when to leave us alone. Appetizers such as angry shrimp and crab cake were good. We had to pile up the appetizer plates as they left them on the table without removing for a long time until we had to grab the attention of the staff to remove them. Waiter kept tapping me on my back with his hand every time he came to the table, most likely to build rapport but please don’t touch people. Hated that. Coconut cake was really good. Waiter brought bill and stood over me to charge me without first leaving the bill so i can look it over and then come back to charge when he sees I’m ready. View of the water was nice. It was a bit warm. So, some good and some bad but not worth the $500 bill for two people. I don’t mind paying for quality, but it was more like a $150 dollar meal over all.

It was my husbands birthday and the card was adorable, the ambience was lovely. He ordered a scotch and it came in a really dirty glass. No one came by the table so he finally had to go swap it out. Then we ordered the coffee and cocoa rubbed steak. The rub was delicious but it was cooked on the outside and almost raw on the inside. I’m a big fan of mid-rare but it was almost too raw for me. They re heated it and it improved. It was served with fried onion/onion bits that were clearly not fresh so we just requested them to be removed as they were re heating it anyhow.

It had the potential to be an amazing meal, but just fell a little flat for the money.

Fantastic location where sitting by the water gives a very good experience.
Steak is top notch, but the scallops and burrata we had for starters were average. Also the bernaise sauce was so so.
Wines were good and well recommended.

The outdoor dining was fantastic but the one drawback is sitting under the trees and getting hit by bird droppings constantly. Some of the tables had umbrellas but there should really be umbrellas covering all of the tables due to the birds and bird dropping.

It's tough for me to give 5 stars to anything, but the dinner we had at Smith and Wollensky's Miami location was just about perfect.
First, the location of the facility is stellar. They feature outdoor dining that is literally waterside. Add to that the perfect weather we were enjoying that evening made for a perfect setting.
Smith and Wollensky basically doesn't vary with their food quality and that is a huge compliment because that consistency means you know what you are getting. The beef is about the best in existence and it is always ...and I mean always...cooked to your exact specifications. Wish I knew how they did that. Perfect sear with a fantastic medium rare is always my choice, and that's how it comes. Add to that, beautiful side dishes and a nice champagne-by-the-glass offering makes it perfect. (and not prosecco either,...thanks for having REAL champagne available by the glass!!) Can't wait to visit their new location in Vegas. So...5 stars all 'round for this place!
