Place is great and fun. Service excellent. Went for brunch--Spice. Food was OK. Special bread was not good. Eggs salmon benedict was not good--salmon/brownbread not enough taste. Benedict short rib was much better. Desserts were good.

came here for miami spice, and the food was delicious (though it did take them a while to bring out the main course). I've never had anything like the dessert (a cocoa nib crumble with a white rice pudding and seaweed crumbles). But it was delicious!

Went in for a Sunset dinner with family, the food was phenomenal, starting from the presentation to the taste!!! The service however for the price you pay wasn’t up to par... they add %18 gratuity to all checks in Miami but they don’t give the %18 service... & when i say service i mean the waiters/cocktail waitresses (the bussers&food runners did they’re part of the job) while i work in the hospitality industry i expect more, especially when you have a small section& you’re working with someone else as a team!
However will definitely return for the food & ambiance!

Overall, we had a very nice experience at SeaSpice. Truthfully, it's a place to go for the scene and ambiance. Although the quality of the food is great, you can get just as wonderful seafood less than 50 feet down the street at a fraction of the price. This place is incredibly expensive. I ordered a $17 cocktail which I am almost certain had no alcohol in it. The ambiance is delightful, and so is the view, unless of course you sit down at a quiet table by the water, only to have a giant yacht park right next to you and completely block the view of the city...Which is exactly what happened to us. I would recommend checking this place out on a Miami Spice deal, or for a very special occasion in which you are ready to overspend. Fantastic for a nice date night. But if you're just interested in great seafood, check out any of the other places on the river instead.

Had a group over for lunch at Seaspice. Enjoyed the ambiance and the waterfront view. Food was tasty but not out of this world. Service was attentive but not really 5 star. Reviews had Seaspice as 5 star plus. I would give it a solid 4 (or maybe 3.9). The location is a gem amongst the gritty Miami river and for that I would recommend that everyone give it a try and formulate your own opinion.

If you wanted to shoot a movie or TV episode of the best of the Miami nightlife scene this place has the cast, crew, soundtrack and set to do it all in one take.

We had dinner on the open patio area near the bar and loved the experience. We were seated right away and our waiter was attentive, friendly, and professional. Two glasses of the “house” Champaign, Moët & Chandon started us off on the right track followed by Domaine Ott Rose with our main course. A shared Beet Salad, Platanos (fried plantain), Chicken Tagine and an Asparagus & Broccolini Risotto (not on the menu but offered by our waiter as an alternative) were all expertly prepared.

This place is filled with beautiful women with hair, makeup, fashion and footwear all dialed up to the max, and guys in casual but expensive threads who look like characters out of Miami Vice smoking Montecristos and ordering Magnums of Moët & Chandon “Ice” Champagne in distinctive white bottles.

Everyone in the place is swaying in their seats or dancing to the Salsa/Rock/Hiphop mix blasting the room from an expert DJ. Meanwhile variety of 100’ yachts are pulling up to the dock. And early in the evening oversized beach balls were being bounced overhead from table to table. Pure fun.

Don’t be fooled by the serene look in the Open Table photos; this is not your grandfathers’ Yacht Club. It’s a wild and fun experience.

I love that this is a trendy bar/restaurant on the Miami River with a great view of the Brickell skyline. I love the way different employees have different uniforms according to their positions, yet they all have a nautical theme, (cute uniforms). I love the look of the outside bar and the look of the main dining room. I love the people watching on the river boats that pass as well as at the restaurant, and I love watching the boats that pass by as well as the ones docked at the restaurant. I love the look of the drinks and I love the food that I've had.

Came to Sea spice for Miamispice month. It was delicious. The plates are perfect size for one person. The best plate was the dumplings and the Grouper I had for dinner. My boyfriend had the king crab ravioli but he was not satisfied by the flavors. The desert is definitely my favorite. We each tried different plates the Tres leches and the Chocolate mouse... perfection

One of the best restaurants we've been to in ages. Service was superb and efficient, our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and wine list. The food was magnificent - it came out in a timely manner and was piping hot and well portioned. The menu was quite pricey but beautifully balanced with great options for everyone, and the Miami Spice menu was excellent value.

Server was great. The food we had was delicious. Only complaint is we made a reservation for brunch at 3pm (served until 3:30) but they did not seat us until 3:45 and would not let us order from the brunch menu because the chef had broken down the equipment for brunch. We did not order entrees and went somewhere else.

This was a sweet spot for special dinner but do make a reservation. We waited at the bar for our table and the female bartender was phenomenal. Our table server was not as spectacular but he was ok enough. This place is busy and bustling with all sorts. Definitely trendy and hip with youngins but not so much that it would be offputting to mature age
