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 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.

We tasted several of the small, medium and vegetables
dishes. All was delicious but small quantity for the price.
Service was excellent. Beautiful ambiance.

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.

We were seated outside right next to the door. My wife asked if we could be moved away but we were told not to worry, they don't use that door. Well, they use that door. We were one of three tables outside, there was plenty of room to move us. No idea why they didn't honor our request.

Food allergies are clearly not something staff feel comfortable with. Seemed shocked. But manager or chef never visited our table. And after sending waiter back 3 times to find out what would be safe, our allergic diner still felt his mouth tingly after 4 bites. So we departed quickly and no one seemed to care. Won’t go back. Prices very high too.

The restaurant has been open for like a month and a half and I think I’ve been there six times. Michael Schwartz and executive chef Stephen Ullrich did a fantastic job with the menu. It is full of flavourful dishes to try and taste and combine. It is a unique restaurant. For me the noise level was high. Last time I went, the music in the inside was low and now I have no complaints. All the servers are very pleasant and attentive.
