Contemporary American
Lush neighborhood retreat for relaxed American cooking by chef Michael Schwartz. Located at the cornerstone of its residential heart – Tigertail Avenue and Mary Street -- Tigertail + Mary is an oasis within the oasis, inspired by Coconut Grove’s one-of-a-kind bohemian lifestyle, easy energy, and textured tropical landscape. For Schwartz, good food begins with great product, and here the menu celebrates this notion’s ultimate expression – vegetables – as well as other fresh, thoughtfully-sourced proteins, like local seafood and meat from animals raised with care.

I had a 9:45pm reservation and they kept us waiting and waiting. Every 10 minutes they told us that our table was almost ready. They didn’t apologies nor offer us a drink. After 45 minutes, my wife and I decided to celebrate our anniversary back in our apartment which is @ Park Grove.
On our way back, we told the Maitre D that we were leaving and he didn’t care or apologies.
Such a waste of time. First and Last...

Fun Atmosphere.....too noisy to talk...perhaps more soundproofing would help. Cocktails
way too expensive for most people. I don't think that my friends will return...I will because
it is in my neighborhood.

Great signature drinks. Tuna crudo was tough and chewy. They had to bring me a new one. Wild King Salmon curry was overcooked, extremely disappointed. The setting, service and ambiance are amazing. But, menu needs tweaking.

Everything was very good. Expectations were very high. Very mildly disappointed on a few minor points. But not really a criticism, just didn’t match my personal expectations. Yet, still high quality ingredients and well prepared food. Also, me and my wife mainly shared small plates. So did not experience large plates. So, I need to go back to get a more balanced experience. Vegetable concepts were very well done. Staff was overall very nice and attentive though at some points seemed a bit overwhelmed during prime time. But, the effort and attitude was excellent and for me personally that is the most important consideration in terms of service. Can’t wait to go again.

Chef Schwartz knocks is out of the ballpark, once again! impeccable food, the service was on point. Great recommendations. Of course, the house wine (Nebbiolo - Lua Rosa No 5) goes perfectly with every plate that comes out. When you peek into the kitchen, the staff is focused, everything looks carefully crafted. Definitely will be back. This is going on the top 5 Miami spots! We had an amazing experience.

We had the crab appetizer. It was not good. Needs improvement

Next we had the peach salad which was quite refreshing and tasty

Also has the peach and speck pizza which was very good

Bottom line Average restaurant and a bit overpriced for the quality

Service and ambiance were amazing. The food was good overall - ordered the coddled egg, lamb stuffed olives, spaetzle, polenta agnolotti, okra and kids grilled fish and chips. The spaetzle and kids meal were excellent! The coddled egg was ok - sounded a lot better on the menu. It lacked flaor. The olives are a nice idea, but they are fried and you can't really taste the lamb. The polenta was a little dry and the sauce for the lamb was ok.

Disappointed. We live in the area and were excited to try it. We had two vegetable dishes which were nothing special. Roasted artichokes were tough. A pizza with pear was the highlight of the meal and very good. Also kudos to the sommelier who was excellent despite the excessive markup on their wines. We had two cocktails, one of which was their signature, and didn’t love them.

Very disappointing.... The 4 of us thought exactly the same. And we were very excited to try it.
Extremely overpriced items for such basic menu and products.
Boring menu and tasteless dishes.
Some examples.. I love artichokes, 1 artichokes, hard, chewy and without the proper preparation $18.
Suckling pigg, small, dry and boring $33
Octopus was good ! Salad was great!
We knew it was going to be pricey, but what we didn't knew is that it was going to be just expensive without return.
Sad.

Hi Marcos, Very sorry to hear your disappointment. We are glad you enjoyed a few of the dishes and found the service to be 5 stars! I would love to connect with you to hear more details of your experience so we can work towards improvements. Our artichokes usually receive rave reviews, and the portion should always be 3 halves of artichoke on the plate, and the suckling pig is a guest favorite as well. We aim for an excellent experience every time and hope you will come again to try other dishes

I absolutely love the restaurant, such a cute place, amazing ambiance and incredible service. But I have to be honest, a lot of our plates were underwhelming and just alright compared to our experiences at Michaels Genuine, maybe we ordered wrong but I was really hoping to be blown away. Will go back to try more for sure and just hoping it was an off night because I have high hopes.

The food was very good and the service also! But we had an issue with the sommelier. Someone from our party ordered a glass of wine and it came very empty for what they charge. The sommelier came to our table and started explaining that they have different sizes of glasses of wine and back and forth explaining and never solved the problem. The waiter never asked what size she wanted. The least he should of done was serve her a bit more. So much for the client having the right to complain. The place was packed he could of been a bit nicer. Anyway the food was very good.

The ambience and staff were wonderful, however Chef Schwartz has to step up his food game dramatically. My wife and I had eaten there back in June, and one dish of snap peas was horribly burned and bitter to the taste, plus tough. This Jul 8 visit we tried to keep it light, so my wife ordered a pizza and it was so under-cooked that the dough on the bottom was still raw and my fried smelts were fishy and way over breaded--tasting like over cooked French Fries. Won't return even though it is in our neighborhood. Interesting that he has two Pizza places which he excels in. Maybe shift a chef around or at least get rid of this one. I think Chef Schwartz may tries a bit too hard to be unique. KISS

Had a reservation for 9pm but was seated at 9:30. What’s the point of having reservations if you’re not going to honor them. Just like we loose our table if we arrive late, there should be a penalty or a reward from the restaurant to the guest if they exceed the grace period of 15 minutes

Service and ambience were great. Wonderful little spot in the heart of the Grove. The food was good, appetizers were best along with the Suckling Pig and whole fresh fish entrees. Salmon entree was underwhelming but still yummy with the yellow curry broth. Wine and cocktails were excellent, the decor was wonderful. Would probably go back again but be more conscious of the money being spent and food not entirely living up to the money we paid for it. Still a decent spot!!

I loved the design and setting of Tigertail & Mary, and as a Grovite, I love its location. The look and feel of the restaurant is excellent and the best part of the restaurant. The food was more good than bad, but the menu choices tried too hard to be different and innovative, and instead bordered on the ridiculous. The tagiliatelli with clams and pork are a perfect example. The steak for $98, albeit to be shared, was way too expensive. My dinner companions ordered the suckling pig to split. It was disappointingly small and also pricey. The grilled artichokes were burned. I loved the fondue and the lamb meatballs. Our bill was $350 for 4 and that is just too much. Suggestion: go to Tigertail & Mary for a drink and then walk over to Harry's Pizza for better food and better prices.
