Excellent food and service. We are from Ohio and not used to the small portions but what was there was simply amazing.

Recently went for Miami Spice, have been wanting to go for a while. Our waiter Steven was pleasant and the service was fast (much faster than any other restaurant here). The food was delicious but very small portions. Food included the ricotta gnudi, branzino, chicken, snickerdoodle cookies (made with hazelnut- yum!) and the eclair which was a unique take on the traditional eclair. We were still kind of hungry after and it’s not like the price is “cheap” with Miami Spice. I am not sure if that is their normal serving size. I was glad to go once but I wouldn’t go again, especially given how pricey they are normally.

Truly one of the best meals you’ll ever have. I’ve been 3 times now and each time blows my mind more than the last. It won’t be the last time we eat here. Jeremy Ford is an artist and his food is incredible.

The service is personalized and the quality is food is exceptional. This is truly a top 10 foodie destination in South Florida . The bill will be expensive but worth every penny . We had an outstanding dinner and some homemade cookies for dessert.

Overall food was good only reason didn't say great is one course of the 5 course Chef selection was cold the"snapper" great ambiance and local went there because it was a Chef Jeremy Ford restaurant and ordered the 5 course Chef selection only to find out he wasn't even there. I'm sorry but if I go to your restaurant and drop $700 on dinner for two Jeremy better be there!

Food was exceptional but timing of kitchen and resulting service was poor. We ordered the tasting menu and were left for over 30 minutes between two courses and over 20 for dessert.

By far, Stubborn Seed is consistently the most creative, tasty, attractively displayed food in town. Miami Beach is lucky that Chef Jeremy Ford was ‘Stubborn’ in getting his restaurant to this point. His attention to the kitchen throughout the week, and the new dishes which appear on the tasting menu make returning recurringly a pleasure. The waitstaff is always attentive, friendly, and effective.

Excellent food overall. Our server was also great but the ability of the kitchen to get food out in a timely manner was a problem. We ended up canceling one dish. Really not acceptable from a restaurant of this caliber. No attempt by management to rectify.

Second time eating here and the food is excellent - on a par with many Michelin 1* restaurants I have eaten at. Service is a little behind and doesn't match the quality of the food, but overall a great restaurant for Miami Beach and different to the usual offerings.
