Their former head chef would always come around to the table for a chat. Didn’t happen this time as it seems he has left. But the food was still very good. But I come there because of the very warm welcome k always get.

Not in Abu Dhabi, in the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Due a terrible traffic situation in the Florida Keys on Saturday May 25 2019, our 2.5 hour trip from Palm Beach to the Florida Keys earlier that day turned into a 7 hour ride. Watch the hours slip past, I decided at a late hour where it would be a hard run, immediately to turn back once we arrived in the Florida Keys, back 2.5 hours to the Forge in North Bay Village in N. Miami Beach Fl. So I called the restaurant direct, and to my surprise I listen to the answering machine many times, that the Forge Restaurant is closed for the summer season for renovations. I made several attempts on your app to reach open table, to find out if that message was true or an old phone message, never really got that straight, but after reviewing the reservation in your app, I realized that the reservation was made for 8:30pm that evening in Abu Dhabi, and I had gotten my confirmation. Maybe you should have made that real clear in large block letters that the Forge in N. Miami Fl. USA was closed for renovations and this reservation was being made in Abu Dhabi. So my first experience with your app was not a pleasant one. The evening was not a total loss as we were directed to a small steakhouse in Islamorada Florida, were myself and my friend ate steak, I will add I ate maybe the best fillet mignon I ever had in my life, I’m 61 years old and I’ve eaten a lot of filet mignon. The restaurant was called Ziggy Maddog. Martin Abrams.

The only negative is a restaurant of this class should not have simple listed menu items such as portobello mushrooms and pumpkin being non available. They have two major supermarkets within a 10 minute drive with shelf loads of both. But the evening was greatly enjoyed.

Thanks to the Chinese restaurant manager who have managed to make it up to me at their restaurant since it was my wife’s birthday!

The restaurant was amazing with small areas for you to feel intimate with your guests, but still felt that you were a priority for the restaurant and not forgotten about. The food was amazing, be aware that the portions are on the larger side so we shared a main course with additional sides and add ons. The bread basket was amazing being fresh and warm and did not stop coming unless you asked. Staff were also really really good nothing was too much trouble and all requests were met and never seemed to be a problem. We would recommend this to anybody within Abu Dhabi as a must visit. Thanks to everybody at the Forge.
