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.
Forge Wednesday used to be my favorite night in SoBe. Now it’s a money grab. Food was meh.
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!
Absolutely outstanding in every way. Old world feel. We will definitely return.
Service was excellent, however, the food was mediocre especially for the price.
Love the forge , everything was yummy
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
No big deal
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.
