I always enjoy my favorite steak restaurant but the service left something to be desired this time. On multiple occasions our waiter disappeared for extended periods. I never complain about service but when lunch is $250 for 2 people, I’d expect better.

The food was great but the service could have been better. Our waitress was stand offish and short with us. The wine glasses, utensils, and napkins were also pretty dirty. Because of the virus we were asked to sit outside which is understandable but when it started to rain the staff made no effort to assist in a solution we pretty much shoved our food down our throat in order to beat the rain.

It was wonderful to be out celebrating our wedding anniversary. The service was great with Victor as our server. Unfortunately, they could not accommodate a water view and the tables are right by the main walkway for the park which is very busy.
Not a bad experience but not outstanding.

I hate being this person but I work in fine dining and the service was comparable to a drove through window at McDonald’s. The food was decent but not the best I ever had. Also I know a lot
Of weird stuff is going on and Miami was closed for indoor dining so we were put on a poorly decorated cheap looking patio. This was for my boyfriends birthday and it was a surprise to him because I thought we have this beautiful water view which we did not. I was disappointed with the overall experience. When you go out to a fine dining location you expect to not only pay for food but for the experience. This place sold no experience. The server couldn’t even describe some
Of the chef’s recommend list to me.

Overall the food is wildly overrated and overpriced.The regular staff is fine but the general managers are kinda pompous and rude. Especially the short bald guy. He greeted us and we had a horrible first impression of the restaurant from the onset. We should have taken that cue to leave but chose to stay and had an average steak and meal with an excellent view. Waiting staff was good but super old fashioned

It was a horrible experience. The manager made us wait for a table after we were told we were getting a table and pat our reservation time. He gave the table to someone else. After waiting for 20 minutes, in the sun, he gave us a table outside. We requested a table in the shade that was empty. One of the waitress was so nice to clean it for us and gave it to us and the manager made us stand up because he was going to give it to someone else that had no reservations. We felt we were targeted because in two opprotunities he gave priorities to sraight couple and we are a gay couple that felt treated less than. I guess the management is as old and outdated as this place is.

We've been very safe and careful during the COVID quarantine, and have recently started venturing out and trying to find restaurants with outdoor seating where we're comfortable going. S&W did a great job making us feel safe, but keeping the high quality of service and food we've come to love there. We sat upstairs on the patio, tables were more than appropriately separated, they're using disposable paper menus, and have alcohol available for washing hands table side. All staff was wearing masks, and other guests observed the same requirement when not seated at their tables. On top of all of that, the food was delicious as always - thanks again S&W!

The hostess was the rudest ive ever met. Since we entered the restaurant and told her about the reservation she told us this:
“Do you know the rules”
“10 pm you hace to be out of the restaurant, just saying”
I reserved for outdoor seating, she took us upstairs. We asked her if we could sit in the tables downstairs that are empty. This was 835, restaurant cuts service 930.
The answer was people are going to change to those tables, so we told her, we want the tables they are leaving downstairs and she said “there are people on waiting list”
Half an hour later the tables downstairs were empty, i asked her what happened? She answered this.
This is what they told me, sorry and she left.
Asked her for the manager, she kept walking.

The food was excellent, but and important part of the experience of a restaurant is the service, and the hostess treated us like trash

Below are the EMPTY TABLES she didn’t want to give us
