Thanks so much!
I have had the pleasure of eating Jeremy Fords food for years in south florida and he and his team never miss the mark
I was happy to share this experience with my friends who had never dined there before.
Dinner was fantastic and coming from new York felt very reasonably priced. 100$ a person with wine for food that was memorable is truly a great experience.
We sat 40 mins late, but I understand it’s tough to turn a table sometimes. After we sat, no one was apologetic and it took another 25 minutes to get our drinks. After another 30 minutes without food, we decided to cut our losses and get the check for what we consumed. The staff was rude and dismissive at our decision. For all the wonderful restaurants in Miami, I feel it’s a safe bet to dine elsewhere.
Everything was delicious and the staff was superb! Enjoyed it through & through!
We did the tasting menu and although the food was generally speaking great, there were a few dishes that lacked that magic that makes you come back again and again.
1. The oysters: these tasted like an onion lemonade. The ice, the onion and the lemon made it very difficult for the oyster itself to shine.
2. Tuna tartare: It was just okay. The fish was cleaned and cut properly, it was very fresh, but the dish lacked that flavor that makes you pick up the fork and wish for more.
3. Gnudi: This dish was really tasty. The ricotta, the mushrooms and the pine nuts they all came shining every single bite.
4. Cacio e pepe bread: This cheese puff was very delicious, and the home made pickles were balanced in sweet and sour, but it’s just a cheese puff in my opinion.
5. The red snapper: was delicious, perfectly cooked, although I wish the skin was crispier. The broth was a bit strong on its own, but overall it paired well with the cauliflower and the fish.
6. Wagyu from Australia: I was expecting more marbling, hence more fat, therefore, I was expecting to chew this piece of meat a bit less that filet mignon. The meat was cooked perfectly, but there was nothing truly special about this wagyu or the dish itself.
7. Dessert: Desert was okay. The strawberry and olive oil cake dessert was fine, the donut filled with chocolate and hazelnut was good, but nothing I haven’t tasted in a Ferrero Rocher chocolate before.
The stars from the tasting menu were definitely the gnudi
and the red snapper. However, I was expecting to be wowed and I was not. The oyster were a really bad start, maybe the chef should use a different palate cleanser or balance this dish a bit more.
Really nice evening - great food/service and ambiance
Portions are large and very filling
We all agreed it was the best meal we had during our week long vacation, and we only ate at top rated restaurants. Our service was exceptional from start to finish. A truly wonderful evening.
Too noise, slow and lousy service, but very good food
It’s the best meal you’ll ever have. Must go spot!
Wonderful food. We enjoyed the tasting menu and it was a delight from start to finish. Some of the most memorable bites were the oyster, the pickle garnish, the ricotta and the local mushrooms. If it had not been taboo I would have licked the plate to get every drop of sauce from the red snapper dish. The service was professional and friendly. We had a fantastic experience.
In 1 word - WOW!
Tried the tasting menu, each and every plate was so tasteful, balanced and mind blowing.
Not worth any penny. Spent nearly $ 500 for 2 people. American continental cuisine- nothing special . We did a chef tasting menu. Nothing was outstanding or wowed us considering any Michelin star restaurants within the same price range. Service was terrible, I was serving wine to ourselves all night long and kept asking to replenish water a few times. It was a Monday night , Presidents' Day. Also noted that it was birthday celebration via open table not sure if it was considered or just missed since dessert came without any bday identification. The only highlight that they had my favorite wine from Napa valley.
Food was great overall! Service was pretty slow and inattentive.
worst restaurant. Waited 1.5 hours for table. Food took 30 mins between course. Food was not even good.
Absolutely brutal experience at Stubborn Seed. We were seated an hour late for our 8:30 reservation for a tasting menu reservation. Multiple parties seated at the same time or after us were served (and completed dining) ahead of us. We had only 4 of 7 courses by hour 3. When we asked about our 5th course, our waiter was hostile. The manager tried to unsuccessfully smoothe it over. We left paying $200pp (after a discount!) for an incomplete meal while enduring a rude wait staff. The food was great, and we wanted to love the experience for an important birthday dinner, but Stubborn Seed ended up being a place we’ll warn others away from as long as we continue to come to South Beach. Too many other good restaurants nearby to waste time and money here. Beware.
Valentine’s Day Dinner, food was good. 7 course tasting, done in roughly 3-3.5 hours. Service was not what I thought it would be from one of the most noteworthy restaurants in Miami. Staff was polite and nice, but it wasn’t above and beyond for the price.
I came here with a reservation at 10:30PM . My fiance and I arrived early to a very crowded and noisy restaurant. We waited to be attended and got sat outside where it was much quieter. We were attended by a waitress who brought us some water and afterwards seemed to have disappeared. Our order wasn't taken and we waited 30 minutes until we decided to get up and leave. I very much don't recommend this place on service alone.
The menu was a bit shorter than I expected, but everything we ordered was incredibly tasty.
I think the service was fantastic once we sat down and I bet it was a bit messy because of the valentine's day. Our server was outstanding, I couldn't be happier with his service.
TERRIBLE SERVICE, the food is outstanding but honestly not so great to make us bear that terrible service. DO NOT GOT THERE if you are a large party!
We made a reservation for 7ppl at 8pm and all arrived by 8:50pm and were not seated until 10:40pm because they only had 1 table to fit 7 people and they refused to tell that table they need to turn the table over.
In addition manager was rude when I asked him if he would at least offer a round of drinks at the bar and during our wait managers were both yelling and screaming at a customer, kicked him off and locked the door. Whatever that guy did I never seem people so angry.
That without mentioning the fact that when we arrived it took 15 min for the hostess to show up at the door.
My wife and I came excited for a great meal. We arrived at our reservation time and had to wait an extra 30 minutes. Once we were seated we tried to do the tasting menu but it was over two hours to get through the first 4 courses. Finally we decided we were done and didn’t want to wait anymore for further service and the manger was very rude and condescending. We won’t be back .
We showed up about 15 minutes late due to traffic, yet I had called and explained during this time what was transpiring, and they had given away our table so we were seated at the bar. Bartenders were super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of both food and drink menus. Food was unique and delicious.
Once this restaurant is "discovered" you will never be able to get a reservation. My wife & I travel a lot and experience many different restaurants. This will go down as one of the best dining experiences ever. The uniqueness of the dishes and the flavors that are created are incredible. Its just a couple blocks off the beaten path, but well worth the visit. Highly recommend this!!
super expensive for very little food. tasty, but not worth the price.
It was everything and beyond well done!!
One of the best meals I have ever had. Do not miss this if you are in Miami!!!
U2 and Michelin stars? Yes! This is your place. We have been to a handful of 3 star restaurants and they all are great but they do come across a tad stuffy. This has the great food with none of the stuffy. The sounds track is 90’s rock! Yes!
Food? We had the tasting menu. Might have been 7 or 8 courses, not sure but it was perfect. Go before this place blows up more and stops playing U2 and starts playing Bosa Nova like the rest. Stay Stubborn!
We had high hopes for Stubborn Seed while visiting Miami. If I’m being honest the food was “just okay” it was served luke warm, and everything was bland. We had 5 courses and we were bothered still hungry when we left. We would consider ourselves foodies so love finding unique places such as this but it unfortunately won’t be on our go to list next time we head back to Miami. I will say our server was wonderful.
The whole experience was amazing. The food was great, we had a 9 course tasting menu. The service was on point every minute. It was my girlfriend’s birthday and she is a bit of a Top Chef lover, and we’ve been to several restaurants that belong to chef’s from the show. Jeremy Ford is the first that has actually been working when we were there. The bus boy heard us talking about it, and during desert Chef came out and said hello. Best birthday present ever!
My fave course was the oysters. My girlfriend’s was the steak. Everything was smooth, simple, and amazing. We will be back.
Went for our wedding anniversary dinner. Amazing experience, great food and impeccable service. Not your every day dinner, just that something special I was looking for.
In my opinion this place deserves Michelin star.
Stubborn Seed is my favorite restaurant in Miami - they deserve a Michelin star!
Excellent meal and service
Wow! Hands down the best meal we've had since moving from NYC. Get the Chef's Tasting menu with premium wine pairing. The service from everyone who came to the table was fantastic and our waiter, Dragen was exceptional. They made my birthday very special. We will be back.
The service was excellent and the food was UNBELIEVABLE! The tuna tartar, potatoes with truffle and the pork with cheese and egg are a must.
Very disappointing meal, we got the tasting menu and it’s such a scam, my meat was stringy
imaginative and tasty- but I want the little breads they used to have back on the menu!!
We had a wonderful experience at Stubborn Seed. Food was so delicious, ambience wonderful, service top notch!! Can’t wait to visit again.
Just a fantastic experience from start to finish. Great service, delicious food. An amazing evening!
Very creative and enjoyable experience. However, the menu can seem a bit limited if preferring to avoid truffle or caviar.
Wow this place was just perfect for our date night! The food was great and service was on point!!! Highly recommend we spent about $260 including tips but very well worth. We had about 4 drinks 2 appetizers 2 main dish and 2 deserts!!! So good :)
The entire experience exceeded every expectation I had. From the phenomenal service, to seeing a chef as renowned as Jeremy Ford hard at work in the kitchen and taking the time to come say hello, I was blown away. What stood out most of all? In a sea of excellent restaurants his menu stands out as completely fresh and innovative, and while every course of his tasting menu sung in perfect harmony, every course surprised me and managed to elevate the experience.
Rumor has it Ford has a new restaurant opening soon in palm beach and I can promise you that we’ll be making the trip...
Tip: don’t miss the oysters, tomato salad, or prime rib. You won’t be disappointed.
