The Surf Club Restaurant
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 .
Start to finish, lobster, lasagna, Cesar salad, cannot go wrong.
Incredible service and ambiance.
Would love to come back
Quite a wonderful dining experience. Perfectly knowledgeable staff. Amazing food. Loved everything
Sous vide lobster!
Guessing the perfect ribeye 🥩 was as well
I’m a big fan of Chef Keller.
Incredible as always! Definitely a must in the Miami area!
Outstanding, from execution to service.
It’s always a pleasure to dine at The Surf Club, the staff and cuisine are top notch. Soft boiled egg rivals Keller’s “Oysters &Pearls”
Absolutely fantastic! Service and food were impeccable.
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.
Traditional, high-end dining with great service, cooking and ingredients. It was a pleasure to visit.
Todo excelente el servicio perfecto la comida espectacular
The service was excellent above par and all around a great experience.
The food was delicious everything we had was perfect.
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.
Amazing! This is the best restaurant I have ever gone to, everything is delicious, the service is exceptional, and definitely if you want to impress this is the place. Exceeded ALL my expectations. Thanks @LOKAL_EATS for your advise to celebrate my anniversary. Excellent!
If I could give more stars for the service I would. We dine out frequently and this was the best service we have ever received.
Muy buen restaurante, buena comida y excelente servicio
Ambiente acogedor, elegante de muy buen gusto.
El bar también es hermoso.
Excellent food, excellent wine-selection, excellent service.
Casual luxury, great food, beautiful restaurant, very courteous staff, correct wine list. Everyone leaves very happy.
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
We always enjoy dining there but this time the waitress and kitchen did us no favors. Gratefully the management recognized the issues and were extremely gracious in their resolution.
A perfect evening to celebrate a special occasion. Staff skillfully guided us through the menu of classics. From the Champaign toast, to lobster thermidor entre, to the upside down pineapple cake desert, this was a memorable affair.
one of the best restaurants in Miami. brilliant in its simplicity yet complex. service is an art and each of the staff is well trained. I take my hats off to Thomas Keller.
Fabulous restaurant in Surfside . The food and service is outstanding. This is a special occasion restaurant for sure
Excellent like always
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
All his restaurants are amazing!
Great food and great ambience
Food service and ambience were wonderful!
Incredible dining experience. Delicious food and outstanding service. I highly recommend the Beef Wellington and soft boiled eggs with caviar.
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.
The service, ambiance, and food were A++
Best food, good service, and very nice ambience.
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.
Wonderful classic restaurant. You’ll find old time favorites done right. White tablecloths, attentive service, good wine selection amd great food prepared with prime ingredients
We went there for our first anniversary and it was an amazing experience. The food was delicious. We brought our own bottle of wine. It was the perfect evening.
