Waited forever for our table and then sat there for 15 minutes without waiter coming by. Hostess didn’t even give us menus. She was running around and scatteeed. No one served us water. Finally served our meal - 45 minutes - maybe even an hour after we ordered. It was husbands birthday and had entered that on Open Table and we literally weren’t even offered to have dessert. Nothing! The table next to us were waiting forever for their food. And annoyed as well. We weren’t the only ones. Such a disappointing experience and clearly understaffed restaurant.

Food was fantastic - all seafood starters and small plates. Matthew was the best waiter we’ve had in a long, long time - attentive, great conversation, good advice and gave us a few spots to check out after dinner. Barbera d’Asti by the bottle was a 4 star wine at $40 - retail is $32 so very little mark up, great find.

My wife and I had a great meal last nite. On vacation from VA and had this spot recommended. Our server Bruna provided excellent service and was never too busy to spend time with us explaining the menu options, even when we asked several times for detail. The recommended fried whole fish was super. As it was wine nite we asked about options and Bruna again came through with a taste of a couple of whites, we drank two bottles and UBER back to hotel. When we are back in SB again we look forward to coming back to try some other entrees and to see Bruna again. 5 STARS.

My family and I dine here quite often, and on this occasion we brought someone for a special celebration. Unfortunately, our meal didn't feel as special as it normally does. A few of the appetizers fell short, and I noticed that the kids meals have significantly decreased in size and quality over the last year. I don't think we'll be returning as often as we used to.

Scamsville. Paid $67 for my entree recommended by the bartender. From Penang to Santorini I've successfully avoided being suckered by pay for
fish by the pound scams only to fall for it in a 36 hours recommended restaurant in a non touristy peaceful part of Miami. Shame on me for not asking the cost and not paying attention to the weight . Shame on them for:
1) Selling me a fish that upon delivery the food runner revealed would make three fillets, i.e., feed three people
2) Pushing the whole fish when the sign above the fish clearly says available whole or in fillet.
3) Explaining that they don't prefer to fillet because of the waste, as if giving someone three entrees to eat doesn't result in waste.
4) Proactively stating that the fish doesn't come with a side when it comes served on a huge bed of greens. Sure, it doesn't come with a starch but I said I didn't want a starch so that's no excuse.

On the upside, the smoked trout is awesome.

Recommend by new friend Julie at Miami Deco Preservation society (fabulous tours) Stiltsville was a yummy way to end a delightful trip. Service was outstanding. Thoughtful but not overbearing. They really cared. And the smoke fish with house made chips & pickles delicious as were shrimp & grits. Would return in a heartbeat. Especially if they’d open a branch in Chicago!

Really enjoyed our night at Stiltsville. Hostess greeted us and showed us right to table, waitress was incredibly friendly. We had the coleslaw, shrimp and grits, the aji tuna, and the triple tail. All delicious. Keep in mind that all good restaurants in Miami Beach are expensive. It's just how it is. So this one is expensive. $180 with tip for 3 of us. No apps and 3 glasses of wine. It's a fun and lively place and we enjoyed our night there.

The food is always outstanding at this restaurant, but on our recent visit the service was a little lacking. The waitress forgot our appetizer order and brought it after we had our entrees. She also brought glasses of wine when we had ordered a bottle. We came on a Sunday night and the restaurant was virtually empty so these mistakes shouldn't have happened.

This is a true hidden gem with great atmosphere, decor, menu, food, and service. Had Sunday brunch and it was amazing. The Mumm was perfectly chilled, crab cakes packed with lump meat, and Shrimp and Grits that were the best I’ve sampled. Fresh seafood and attentive service makes this a great get away!

I think this is my favorite dinner spot in Miami. It has good ambiance (good music, nicely designed, not super casual and also not stuffy or too fancy), fresh fish, great service, and good sharing plates. It's not cheap but it's also not the most expensive restaurant in South Beach. Perfect for a nice date or for taking out the family. Loved the fish dip, crab salad, crab cake (which was YUM unexpectedly sweet and savory, very good!), the fresh Snapper, fresh bass, everything is delicious!

Everything about this place was amazing. The interior design is on point, the waiter and service was top notch and the food, can’t talk good enough about it. We tried a LOT of the items in the brunch menu and can’t say one bad thing about any of them. Fresh sea food, great presentation and the taste was just perfection. 100% would be back. My only comment would be that the cocktails were a bit pricy. $17 for a spiked lemonade is too much if you ask me. But other than that, YUM!

Signature dish is definitely the Spoon Bread. The sea scallops were excellent and the food was very fresh. The setting emulates a old fish house on the water where the catch is right from the ocean. The prices are steep but easily overlooked once compared to the food quality.

Great service ! awesome vibe ! Server was on point. They had island music in the background surfing on tv felt like Key West meets Miami Beach. Seafood was fresh and the fish wings were so different but delicious a must try! Manager came by and welcomed us back. Really nice spot and there open for lunch could sit out side to see the bay if u want! I will be back!

This can be a wonderful place but sometimes there are misses. For instance, the dinner menu offers a 'huge' lobster roll ($35) but it's nothing more than an over sized hotdog roll with 1/2 bag of coleslaw mix, overly spiced mayo and some small chunks of lobster. It is 'hugely' disappointing to anyone who likes a real lobster roll (like Joe's). I'll go back for sure; the wait staff is super professional and friendly, the fist is usually terrific but I wish they'd actually eat a real lobster roll to know what I mean.

Phenomenal! Adorable atmosphere. Super cute and inventive cocktails. Menu is inspired and unexpected...Popcorn, avocado and corn nuts with delicate cobia slices served on top of creamy lemony sauce. The crab cakes were sweet and served with a crunchy slaw. The chilled watermelon salad was fabulous with a hint of pickling. The smoked fish dip and house made chips is definitely a great starter. The service is friendly, laid back and knowledgeable off all the dishes. The manager checked on us several times and even brought out complimentary key lime pie! One of the best restaurants in Miami Beach!

I went with a friend of mine as both of us had been before but it had been awhile. The food was very good as was the service. My only complaint is that sitting outside would have been nicer if there wasn’t a MIami Beach trolley stop in front of the restaurant. Has the owner tried to get that moved ? It’s a complete nuisance. It takes away from what was otherwise a very nice evening and experience. Please don’t overlook the surf and turf burger option! Excellent! Also, nice offering of 1/2 priced bottles of wine on Mondays. Very good wine list. High-end wines with a value price!
