Amazing restaurant one of the best tasting menus we have ever had
Delicious, wonderful food. Will come back again & again!!
Remarkably creative and delicious with impeccable service, and quiet enough to have pleasant conversation. What more can you ask?
Delightful as always
No vegetarian options. Menu online different from in store. Request to see chef ignored..
Stubborn seed food felt like eating at a three start Michelin restaurant but without all the usual stuffiness .. it felt warm and yes a bit noise but that’s actually the beauty of it ..
the food .. we went for the chef tasting and did not disappoint.. every course was perfect and even better , it was full of details and surprises.. and when we asked the waitress if we could meet the Chef, she was going to ask him and what’s my surprise at the end on dessert , he comes out , very polite and approachable and joking with my husband about me “ forcing him” to watch Top Chef .
Definitely it was one the highlights of our Miami trip . If you come to South Beach you need to make sure to stop here
We enjoyed the food and the ambiance was wonderful but the noise level was out of control. We were seated along the windows in the front of the restaurant. The table for two next to us was occupied and it started as a delightful evening. Then a party of six was seated in the front “window” and the noise level increased to the point that unless my husband and I leaned in, we could no longer hear each other. I know that this is a problem with new restaurants but it really needs to be addressed.
The stubborn seed is possibly the best restaurant that we have ever experienced anywhere in the world. The food was creative, delicious and healthy, all made with locally sourced ingredients and incredible culinary skill. The wine list was impressive and the cocktails looked amazing and also very creative. We ate at several of Miami's hot spots including the Bazaar, Byblos, LT Steak House and MyCeviche and this restaurant outdid them all for a much more reasonable price. They also accommodated our large party on short notice and provided amazing, attentive service. They are one of the few Miami Beach restaurants that do not include a forced 18-20% gratuity on your bill so be sure to tip them generously as they definitely earn their tips here! This is a five star find that will not disappoint! Absolutely exceptional.
I had read revaing reviews about this place and after having gone for dinner there, I can say it truly deserves each and everyone of them. Went there with a friend and we had the degustation menu with wine pairing. It was an amazing and fun 3 hours culinary experience. From the food textures, presentation, flavors to the perfect complement from each wine. Highly recommended!
The food was absolutely amazing! The presentation and the taste of the food combinations was unbeatable.
Best meal ever. Tasting menu was phenomenal!
Very romantic restaurant with amazing food and service. Love it. Really elevate Miami dining overall.
Perfection! So happy to have Stubborn Seed and Chef Jeremy Ford in Miami!!
Small portions but delicious and beautiful presentation!
Wonderful attentive service.
When we first saw the menu, we were a bit skeptical. That is why you never judge a book by it's cover. Everything was exceptional. The drinks are delicious and inventive. My rum drink was infused with applewood smoke. The food was even better. While the menu is small, there are ample seafood and land dishes. The dishes were creative. The chef uses flavors that would not be obvious pairs, but end up being wonderful. The service was exceptional.
Never was I so happy to be so wrong about a first impression.
The tasting menu was delicious and unique. Due to the extensive courses, the dinner was an (unexpected) 3 hours. Good for celebrations or a real foodie experience.
We have eaten at most of the well known restaurants in Miami Beach/South Beach - this was by far the best. The food was extraordinarily creative and delicious! Everyone who enjoys a special dining experience should try Stubborn Seed.
I have been to many great restaurants and this is now one of the best I have experienced. The food was excellent. The flavors and textures were amazing. The quantity of food was just right. We were not hungry after nor were we stuffed. Our server, Jacob, was top notch. He had a great knowledge of each course as well as what wine would be best with each one. He was beyond pleasant. For that matter, everyone who approached the table was very professional. If you want a restaurant that has it all Stubborn Seed is the place!
Miami has some outstanding restaurants but this little gem manages to surpass the very best of them!! Incredibly creative dishes and flavors with excellent service. The decor is just OK and the noise level is pretty high but the food more than makes amends.
We had a wonderful dinner here. The service is warm and friendly but professional, and the space is modern and chic, without being cold. The menu isn't huge, but is creative, with a variety of options. We loved our starters of smoked foie gras as well as the fluke and the lavash with chicken liver. Our shared main, the wild ora king salmon, was delicious and satisfying. And the ginger-mint tea at the end was a surprise hit (as was the amazing Thyme Traveler cocktail to start). Overall, a great experience--the only possible drawback being small portion sizes for bigger eaters. For us, however, it was just the right amount.
The food was delicious and really well presented, but it is a little bit overpriced for what it is. But I did had a nice time!
Notable experience. Would come back.
My wife and I had dinner at Stubborn Seed on 3/3 and it was INCREDIBLE. We ordered the tasting menu and it completely blew us away. Each dish hit on so many different notes that my wife and I found ourselves giddy to see what was coming next. The personal highlights for us were: the lobster fritters, foie gras, short rib, and dessert, but honestly, everything was outstanding. We have called it the best meal that we had during our trip to South Beach and one of our most memorable meals ever. Kudos to Chef Jeremy and his team for making this experience so unique and wonderful.
Excellent food, service
Amazing went for my birthday and it was a great experience!
Unbelivable! So fantastic!
Loved the food and loved our server Steven! Will definitely be back.
Outstanding service and interesting food combinations. Wine list just ok. Presentations are wonderfully creative.
Absolutely fabulous. Best meal by far that we had in South Beach and we are serious foodies. We’ve been coming to South Beach for 15 years and tried many restaurants. This is one of the top ones. Creative cocktails and cuisine, beautifully presented and delicious. Go now because we predict that soon it will be hard to get a table.
Amazing combination of ambience, quality food and excellent service. Delicious drinks and high level wine list. Can’t wait to go back.
Whole dining experience was divine. Food was fresh and dishes were diverse, artistically crafted and innovative. Chef Jeremy Ford and his staff were awesome. We are craving the beautifully delicious food at Stubborn Seed and can't wait for our next visit to South Beach.
We were a family of 4 for my son’s 18th birthday. We had the tasting menu and it was amazing!! I would go back and have it again. I would 100% recommend it!!! Each course was better than next. I can’t wait to go back and do it again!!!
The food was absolutely amazing.
We arrived at 6:30pm and service was excellent. The food was beautifully prepared and tasted delicious. We appreciated the inventiveness of the combination of ingredients and the appearance (e.g., fog-like dry ice with the oysters.) The fish appetizer amazed too! However, with two light appetizers for the adults, we needed more substantial entrees. The salmon came with a more filling side. However, the $46 lobster, while sumptuous and artfully presented in green "sea foam," could have been accompanied by some grains. Our 7 year old kids split a chicken dish which they greatly enjoyed. There was ample chicken but not enough potatoes. Everyone was still a little hungry after the entrees. In hindsight, we should have ordered an extra side or two of the potatoes that came with their dish. But the restaurant was getting crowded towards the end of our meal, we were worried about the kids' bedtime and whether dessert would be enough. We took the safe option and got them a slice of pizza next door.
I would recommend the place for adults (especially the cozy tables for two by the bar) but if you order the lobster dish, order an extra appetizer . I also think the restaurant should consider adding a side to the lobster entree or adding sides to their menu. Definitely a place for foodies!
Great food if a little expensive and not great decor.
Highly recommendable for the food and service!
Unbelievable meal. We did the tasting menu and loved every second of it. So much flavor in every bite. It was super filling, so come hungry. The service was outstanding (thanks Michele!).
AMAZING one of the greatest meals to date - great service amazing wines and cocktails with uniquely plated fresh meals
