The award-winning restaurant is not your grandfather’s steakhouse – although it once was. With its modern décor, ambiance and philosophy, The Forge has undergone a total makeover, the overall design and décor was executed by Francois Frossard. Walls of hand-carved blonde wood and antique mirrors, lilac and white crystal chandeliers, a wall of bubbles – are perfectly interspersed with the historical pieces that adorn the space. Every diner’s seat is “the best in the house.” The open floor plan of the 6,000-square-foot space allows guests to see and be seen. Executive Chef Julia Doyne presents a 65-item menu along with a delicious Dessert Menu. Finally, there's a labyrinth-like Wine Cellar with eight-rooms devoted to the rarest vintages in the world, and even a secret, lux private dining room, which seats up to 25 guests. The bar offers guest 64 Enomatic's wines by the ounce.

The Forge has changed over the years. We all had the table-side Caesar and I think I felt robbed to pay $18 for a salad that was made by my table. Other than watching it being made it was not special and it didn’t taste so good it tasted like any other Caesar salad. Steak was good but overpriced like the salad. We finished the meal with the chocolate soufflé which was a little weak on chocolate . Wine lists is extensive and has something for everyone. But I do have an issue with the recommended red wine by the GLASS being $36. Our server was lovely and helpful the ambiance was beautiful. But the food was meh.

I used to love The Forge
Very classy place to dine or just hang out by the bar
This time we came on a Sunday night for dinner
First of all we were offered wine by the glass
Have to stay the food and the wine was very good
But the service was horrible. Our empty plates were left in the table for over 20 minutes. Our water glasses were empty most of the time with no one to fill them up.
When the bill came in three glasses of wine
Was $93
We were never offered to buy the bottle instead
Nor were we told how much it was going to cost per glass the waitress just recommended that wine
I don’t like going to places where the tip is included 20% because usually the service is poor as was in The Forge
Will not return
We were never told how much it was going to be no I we offered the bottle instead

Good services and food but too loud for having a relaxing dinner. Management should establish rules to teach some people how to behave in public.

The food is excellent. Extremely hard to find better. It's clear the menu items and their preparation have been very well thought out.

I was in town for the Miami Yacht Show and the experience was so good, I had dinner here two nights in a row. My choice both evenings was the Chilean Sea Bass.

Service was good and the valet staff were on top of things.

A final note, make sure you bring your big wallet, you will need it, but it's worth the price.

I ordered the ribeye (mid-well) and not only was it pretty raw for a medium well especially the center but it lacked flavor and taste. It was very very chewy.

We ate here on Valentines night. When we arrived, we went to the bar for a cocktail while our table was being prepared. I wish we had eaten at the bar!!! Our table was in the back in a boring looking room that was decorated like it was prom!!! We were definitely seated in a third rate location.
I could have gotten beyond that if the food had been fantastic. Sadly, that was not the case. The steaks tasted like they came from the grocery store down the street....very little flavor. In fact, the only dish that was properly seasoned and delicious was the kale salad.
I had high expectations for The Forge, but I found it to be a lot of style over substance and not even style in the dining room we were in!

Food was horrible! Steak over cooked, salmon burnt, lobster bisque was putrid, and reisling was bitter! Waited over an hour for our food! Over 30 minutes for our drinks! Management was supposed to come to our table but never did! There was only a handful of people in the restaurant and we had 10:30 reservations so volume wasn’t the problem. The only nice thing about it was the atmosphere! They must know their service is bad because the add in a 20% automatic gratuity! That is the only reason our waitress got a tip period! Will not go back EVER!

The noise level was so high that we could not speak normally at the table. The skirt steak were so confident had to be sent back. The Caesar salad said for two for $18 and it turned out to be $18 apiece

Steak was over cooked. Should not have been and server should have seen that before it hit the table, as it was a pre-sliced porterhouse. Service was spotty with a very long wait for the check.

Service was extremely poor, after 25 minutes they informed me that they were out of my entree choice. No bread offered, after ordering oysters.. we did not get any utensils. And on top, they add an automatic 20% gratuity
