i had brunch last Saturday, ambiance is good , service is good , food is terrible i ordered first the eggs Benedict with crab and had to send it back because the crab tasted terrible not fresh , then i decided to order something small since i felt awkward , that my friend i went with was eating and i was not , i ordered the tuna tartar no flavor at all, i had to ask the server for some soy to be able to eat , finally we order a chocolate cake , that was extremely hard like a marzipan , i saw the table next door also sending back to the kitchen the food , its a shame since the server was very polite, not coming back for food , maybe just drinks since the place has nice view of the water.

Muy triste ver la transformación del restaurante en un lapso de 2 a 3 años. Inicialmente el restaurante tenía un ambiente más discreto en el cual el servicio era un arte, el día de hoy el servicio se convirtió puramente en un negocio. Es muy incómodo ir a consumir a un lugar del cual uno ha sido cliente desde el inicio y que seamos presionados para dejar la mesa Hoy Seaspice se asemeja más a un night club en donde se reserva un espacio VIP categorizando a los clientes. Definitivamente muy decepcionante.

Everything was exceptional, except the music (too loud!). We had not been to The Deck and were attracted by the great location, overlooking Miami's skyline. We joined with friends and had wine (excellent Alto Las Hormigas Malbec) and several appetizers we shared: charred octopus, seared scallops and tuna tartare, as well as the arugula & prosciutto pizzetta. All were very good. We ended with the chocolate nemesis and the berry mille-feuille, both excellent. The only wrinkle for an almost impeccable evening was the music was too loud, making it very hard for us to have a conversation. I would recommend that the restaurant set aside a "quieter" section for those that are less enthusiastic about the DJ (the music was pretty good, though).

Great place... great location. Catch the sunset. Octopus was great! A bit expensive on the wine list. Oysters were good. No complaints. A must go on a clear day

I was so disappointed on Valentine’s Day. I ordered the lobster roll and it came with 1 tablespoon of lobster meat and a huge brioche croissant so I basically ate bread for brunch for $38 when I was expecting an actual lobster rolls. Worst experience I’ve had at Deck so far.
Also we wanted to order a bottle of the house wine and somehow that seemed more expensive than the brand wine. Didn’t make any sense. We left quite disappointed.

The view of the Miami skyline and bay are amazing! Our server was attentive and had a great attitude. The food was superb. We had langoustines, tuna entree and prawn entree. Dessert of berry millefuille was great as well. The only negative was the volume of the music.

We had a wonderful time at The Deck for our Valentine’s dinner. It was all I imagined. The music and the views were incredible, our dinner did not disappoint us and the service was impeccable.
It is a bit expensive however you’re not going only for the food, it’s the entire package you are experiencing. We will definitely return :)

Terrible experience from the begging, we had to wait more than 30 minutes for our table, then the waiter told us we should order all at once and that we had only two hours limit on the table. We ordered appetizer and main course at the same time as requested, appetizer came in kind of fast (oysters) and main course came one hour after, the food was cold, the fish was good but not price worthy.
It is a shame that such a beautiful and unique spot in Miami has such a bad service, and bad quality in general.

The place is beautiful, our waiter was super attentive. The music was a little too loud, I guess we were close to one of the speakers. The beef carpaccio was the best I've tried, and the tartar was great too, but the eggs benedicts were just ok. They put Béarnaise sauce !!! instead of Hollandaise sauce (kind of weird); the english muffin in the base was cold and dry. Will try the place again !!

As soon as we sat the waiter told us that we had two hours limited time to have our meal, but it took more that an our ( around 75 min) after ordering to get our dishes. It is a nice place, beautiful views and ambiance, but the service is way too slow. Good food, though but service well below average!
