    This may be quite possibly the best restaurant in Miami. Food is great and service is fantastic . In this evening we went to celebrate a special occasion . Had an early evening reservation . While the food and service was Great , I couldn’t help but notice that the service seemed very rushed . We weren’t done with our oysters and the guy was already bringing out the second course . I make this comment because this small attention to detail made me give them a 4 i stead of a 5. At a high end restaurant such as this , you should not feel rushed , especially when you’re celebrating a special occasion .

    All within a Thomas Keller restaurant, the setting was wonderful. The wines expensive and the corking fee at $75.00 I though it was too much

    We had a wonderful time. Where else can you spend a lot of money and eat chips and dip, an ice cream sundae, and finish with caramel popcorn. I had the veal chop and it was great. My wife ordered the Dover Sole and while it tasted good it seemed as it it was over cooked. We talked to our server who took the fish to the chef who agreed. The meal was taken off the bill. We will go back for a special occasion.

    Surf club was fabulous. The chic decor brought me back to the 20-30’s and when they played jazz music it brought the vibe to life. Normally I can describe the food but this time I actually feel incapable in doing the menu justice as it was just deliciously indescribable for me. It was fresh, bright, and delicious. The service was impeccable. Thank you Antonio and Oscar. If you go, and you should, have a glass of champagne and enjoy every morsel.

    This is becoming our favorite spot for special occasions. The bone marrow and beef Wellington are the best I’ve ever had. The brunch menu includes the best lobster roll I’ve ever tasted. If you tried to dream of a better one, you couldn’t. And the wine list is remarkable. We always end up hunting down bottles of wines we discover there. The service is above and beyond. Gorgeous decor. All the ingredients for a memorable dining experience. Every one of the superlatives in this review is well deserved.

    This was one of my favorite experiences ever at a restaurant. The room is great! You feel like you've fallen onto the set of "The Great Gatsby" or something similar. The room has a lively feel and the staff is great. As far as things to try, we ended up going two nights in a row because we had such a nice time that first night. So with two nights experience, I'd suggest: * Cesaer Salad with bacon * Rib eye * Lemon Chiffon Cake * Louie Salad * Sundae

    So we were anticipating the arrival of Sir Thomas Keller’s and it did not fail. From the opening champagne service table side service, to the ambiance of a classic restaurant. if you are looking for classic dishes done with excellent ingredients and precession, then this is the spot. Table side Caesar Salad with dressing emulsified in front of you, mixed and presented to you or Dover sole deboned and served classically this restaurant does not disappoint. The Snake River Farms center of the Rib Eye was a perfect crust, with the right amount of salt and perfect temperature and a side of potato wedges that with golden and crunchy with soufflé like interiors were magic. Wines by the glass were excellent including the Frank Family Cab Blend. Enjoy the evening with someone special i did and it was beeautiful

    The service is great and the New York Strip we had was perfect but unfortunately I got sick the next morning. I suspect it was crude I had. When the dish was brought, I could smell fish stronger than usual but I was in denial such a high end restaurant serves un-fresh fish. It tasted alright but during the night my stomach started bubbling and I was stuck in bathroom the next morning. After spending almost $500, it was an unpleasant experience.

    A little disappointing for a Thomas Keller restaurant. One soft egg on top of a caviar stuffed soufflé thing they called a blini and charging almost $50 for that is almost insulting and it wasn’t good. He could do much better than this.

    We were celebrating my wife's birthday, and it certainly was a special evening. The staff was very attentive but not intrusive, the champaign cart offered top-shelf labels by the bottle and glass, and the food was heavenly. The Thomas Keller menu was vintage -- uncomplicated and familiar. No disappointments. Highly recommended.
