Food was mediocre. Seating process was a mess. Server was good, but not great.
We mentioned it was our anniversary and there was 0 recognition.
2 stars from this experience falls squarely on management. Our reservation was honored 38 minutes after we arrived on time, awkward & tiring to wait at a standing room only bar - defeats the entire point of having a reservation. Then we were seated simultaneously with 3 other tables, all in the same section, all with the same waiter who was clearly instantly in the weeds by this disorganized arrangement. It was aggravating to not be able to order immediately after having waited so long to be seated, as the waiter had to great each table and take each tables drink order. However, more aggravating to see management put our waiter in this position to being with. Sends a clear message that the quantity of turn over is the priority in this place, not the quality of experience. Spice brunch menu was a big bust for us both overall. I did like the flavor of the gazpacho, a surprising hearty taste while feeling light on the palate. We both enjoyed what we thought were the malanga fritters, until we discovered we were mis-served another’s order of the regular menu’s King Crab Croquettes - which were amazing. When the malanga fritters came, they were over fried, burnt, and dry. Big let down after the King Crab. Then another order of the King Crab was attempted to be served to us, but this time the man sitting next to us intervened and had the order properly directed to his table. Lobster benedict was good for the egg preparation, the quality of lobster, but the hash brown bedding was also over done, over greasy, and ruined the overall taste combination. The burger was over cooked, fully brown on an order for a medium burger, the bun was stale and flaking apart. I had the chocolate cremoso and found it way too rich to be served at brunch. My partner enjoyed his tres leches enough that he didn’t want to share!
We were 5 friends to have brunch and we had a good time!
We ordered a vodka with blackberries and orange and it was so good!
Fabulous! Good food, perfect service!
Amazing dinner with amazing service!!!
Beautiful spot! Love the atmosphere! We started at the bar, had dinner and returned to the bar afterwards again. Everyone was super friendly and we had a great time!
Amazing dishes across the menu! Beautiful setting! Great music! Outstanding service!
Big thank you to our server, Esteban, for taking such great care of us!!
We had an excellent time!
Probably the worst service ever!
We had reservations for brunch at 12:30 only to be told we have to wait to be seated. After a few minutes we asked the hostess what's was the hold up. She mentioned we had to wait a bit by the bar as our table opened up. 25 mins later we went back to the hostess as to the hold up as plenty of tables were clearly available. We were seated at about 1pm. Once we were seated our waiter and his assistance were great. As we sat and waited for our drinks, I couldn't help but notice that it appeared as if they were still setting up. Many of their staff were bringing food out to the incorrect tables, staff were just all over the place. Once we ordered, I specifically mentioned I had a food allergy and needed the food to be cooked a specific way. We ordered from the Miami Spice Brunch Menu and received our apps right away. Then we waited over 40 mins for our main dish. Many tables were seated after us and they were finishing their desserts. We complained to the manager only to get a poor excuse on how it was raining causing an issue with the delay on the food. UNACCEPTABLE! Once we finally we served our food, the food was cooked incorrectly. We mentioned this to the server and manager came over only to give me a sorry excuse. We waited over 25 mins afterwards for dessert. At this point I went over to speak to the manager once more and he just kept apologizing. The manager Paul or Nick (can't recall his name) did not charge us for the drinks and my meal. He then took the service charge of 18% from the bill. They should have comp the whole meal and allowed us to leave tip to our waiter as he was not the problem, it was the disaster in the kitchen. This was the worst experience ever! Will never come back. Wish I could give them a zero!
Great service, really nice food. Cool ambiance
Absolutely outstanding service, amazing food and the ambiance was largely romantic
Great food very expensive good views of the water not much English spoken
excellent ambiance, food and service....very recommended!
Excellent Miami SPice menue was excellent . Inside or outside are just great depending on your preference. Would highly recommend it specially during miami spice
Good food and great atmosphere.
Lovely restaurant choice to kick of Miami Spice for 2019. Very nice and assorted brunch options. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, as was the outside seating area. We were worried it would get very hot as it was a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon in Miami, but the covered patio, umbrellas and fans were plenty. The waiter was not kidding when he said they served the best Tres Leches in Miami!
Went for Miami Spice Brunch food was amazing, must try the blue berry sangria.
This was my first time going to Seaspice and it exceeded my expectations and beyond. From the food to service, I was taken aback by the experience. The managers and servers were amazing. I have found my new favorite restaurant. Thank you and I think every restaurant in Miami should take notes from your establishment.
Although the food was very good, the service was absent. For only two people dining, they managed to serve the wrong courses throughout. This shows an incompetently trained staff or one that does not care.
Buena comida, escenario romántico hasta que pasaban los buques remolcados y empezó a llover (no tienen techos de cierre automático)
El servicio bueno pero con mucha prisa de cerrar...desde las 12 Querina corrernos...
Very nice restaurant and excellent food. Easy to park.
I have eaten all over the world. This was the finest dining experience I have ever had. Everything about it was fantastic. Well done to all the Team.
Amazing ambience and service!
Amazing quality seafood.
Great atmosphere for an energetic, chic day out in Miami.
It was everything and more :) thank you so much for making my husband’s birthday dinner special
We visited Seaspice as a date night while vacationing in Key Biscayne. We experienced excellent food, service, and ambience. The restaurant is right on the water, and we really enjoyed watching the boats go by during dinner. We highly recommend Seaspice!
I had a reservation at 8:15 p.m. and until 9:30 p.m. I had to wait at the bar. I had to talk to the manager to get the table. The lousy service
I have to praise Seaspice after my visit this past weekend. A friend of mine was getting engaged and the staff couldn’t have been more attentive and sweet. We were sat right by the water and the food and wine was great! We loved the atmosphere, music (they even played her fav song went he popped the question) and the proposal went perfectly. I’m glad my friend was able to have such a special memory go off without a hitch. It’s the perfect place for any romantic/special occasion.
Nice place nice people
It was amazing!!!Beautiful restaurant,outstanding food and very professional staff!!!!!
I would have given this restaurant more stars if they would just lose the “too cool and important” vibe at the front reception. We arrived 5 minutes before our scheduled reservation time and were told that we needed to wait at the bar (keep in mind half the tables were unoccupied). So we didn’t want to drink so we just stood at the bar area listening to some bad DJ play over hyped electronic music (it was a Saturday Lunch, music was over the top). After 25 minutes of waiting I went to the reception and asked for our table, which wasn’t ready. I then asked if I could sit at any of the other 30+ tables that were vacant to which I was told I would need to buy bottle service at $500 minimum per bottle. This was a Saturday lunch not a Saturday night at 11pm in LIV. I threatened to leave and miraculously was seated immediately. The food was great and we sat on the dock on the Miami river so I was very happy with the experience after we were seated. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly and fast.
Mesero no nos atendeu bien,estaba mal humorado.
Great food !
The perfect place for a bday dinner! The food, scenery, vibe, and staff was absolutely amazing!!
El lugar y la vista espectacular , especialmente en el horario al atardecer . La comida excelente y deliciosa .
One of my fav spots in Miami. Excellence on every level, chic, friendly, fun and incredible food. We need more places like that!
Overpriced bit Gigi’s quality
The ambience and location are wonderful. A nice change from the upscale beach restaurants.
Our bartender outside was excellent- very friendly and quick to get our drinks.
Food is delicious. Everything we had was perfect. The Waygu dumplings are a must have, even if the octopus is recommended by the wait staff (although that was amazing as well)!!!
Only negative was our server was very attentive at first, but not so much as dinner went on. We ate early, so the restaurant was not very busy at this time. We had to pour our own wine several times- which is fine- we are happy to do so, but each time we would try, he would suddenly appear to pour it as if we were doing something wrong, instead of being proactive. We had to request the check once we had finished dessert after waiting 20 minutes to see if he came back.
Excellent restaurant in Miami, but would expect better, more upscale service for the price point.
