Stubborn Seed's Fall 2020 menu was spectacular! All of the flavors of the 5 dishes my fiancé and I enjoyed were superb. The service was excellent and the Lead Chef himself, Jeremy Ford, was kind enough to pass by our table so we could tell him all about how much we loved our experience and he was down when we asked him to take a picture with us. Definitely will return and highly recommend this spot to my loved ones! Delicious + romantic spot for a date night.

We were very surprised to experience this level of fine dining after so many disaster dinners in Miami Beach in attempt to find some nice options during our 1 week stay. We are used to New York/Europe 2-3 Michelin star dining since we travel (and dine) a lot.

Whenever possible, we go for chef's tasting menu since the element of surprise is a big draw for us, so we ordered 8-course tasting. One of us has food allergies, the chef accommodated it beautifully replacing the courses with something else, which added to variety. Every course was tastefully plated, perfectly cooked, nicely presented with lots of imagination involved in use of both ingredients and techniques. We enjoyed absolutely everything coming our way, which is a hard thing to do given we're quite spoiled :)

Another thing to mention, given Covid times, which is remarkably hard on restaurant business, it was heartbreaking to see the place almost empty. We dined on Monday, so of course it might be not as packed as during weekend, but usually restaurants of this caliber are hard-to-get-into, so packed and booked though every day. I would suspect they must be operating under "trimmed and limited" conditions, both food-wise and staff-wise. And is was still impressive. If that's their "trimmed" version, I can not wait to visit it when times are better - that must be magnificent! The chef and sous chef are very talented!!

The service was perfect - very friendly, not intrusive. Thank you, Volodimir and Marty! Timing between courses just right.

Go to Stubborn Seed, do not hesitate! We are already considering a short trip in the near future just to have a dinner or two there.

The food was mediocre. The pacing of the courses was terrible. We received our first two appetizers within minutes of ordering and thirty minutes later, my husband received his entree. He was finished before my entree arrived. The waiter never once offered to get us refills. There were only four tables occupied, so he wasn’t busy. We were very disappointed.

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.
