The Eggs Benedict were sloppy. The eggs were undercooked, and on both orders, one egg had slid off the English muffin leaving a trail of undercooked egg white on the other ingredients. Cocktails were too sweet, and Bloody Marys were too bland.

this place has good food but is marketing itself as a place to watch sporting events and it is not a good place to watch sports, especially Soccer. They do not turn up the sound for matches and they continually place awful music at a very loud level. I then asked if they were going to turn on the sound for a Dolphins game and they said that they would. when the game went on they refused to put on the sound.
overall the food is good, service was fine but I don't think that this place should be telling people that it shows soccer matches if it wont at least let you listen with the sound on.

I am a return customer who frequents American social. On this visit we were paying customers spending alot of money. We ordered food and rounds of drinks every time the waiter returned to our table. We were kicked out of our table and given a choice of another smaller table for four people when we had five. I had called and made reservations for this very reason. It was that or leave. So we left. We would have stayed longer and spent more money at the restaurant. Terrible way to treat customers.

The service here for Miami spice was awful. The servers gave us the menu in secret after we asked. They didn't have one of the desserts available and did not provide a substitute. We had to ask about the drink special which also seemed to bother them. We got the spinach dip as the appetizer and that was great! But then our steak + frites were given to us before we were even half way done the appetizer. Once we got to the steak and frites they were gross. The frites had too much truffle and the steak felt microwaved. The carrot cake had fallen over before it got to out table and was served extremely early too. After we paid the staff did not even offer to box our food to go because it looked so unappetizing.
Overall, do not come here for Miami spice. The food and service were bad.

I would give this experience 0 stars if I could. I’ve been to the American Social on Las Olas and it was amazing figured Brickell would be the same.

It happened to be raining and we were seated outside (even though my res was for inside) the staff seemed to be more concerned that the cushions were getting wet than we were. A little annoying but we just moved our table back.

Then after about 20 minutes of sitting we finally got some water. Our waiter took about another 15 to come take a drink order. We were a party of 7 and 5 of us wanted to do the bottomless special. We all work in the service industry and know how we should be treated. You’d think our waiter would be more attentive, but he could not have provided a worse service. We all sat with empty glasses.

Food and drinks were great, but will never return because of the service.

First time there, thank goodness we had a reservation as the place was packed with college football fans.
Nice beer selection & the food was good , mostly bar food. We had a sampler platter of their small plates. It's right on the Miami river, on this day - if you were into hanging with college football fan - this was definitely the place! That's not a knock -

Good service from our waiter, not so good service from the hostess as she did not want to accept that we had confirmed reservation from open table and asked us to wait for about an hour to see if she could get us a place to sit, after a long conversation I convinced her to give us our table and to our surprise there were plenty of tables inside, so I don’t know why she was giving me such a hard time. Not my first time in the place and definitely the hostess service needs to improve.

Went early before the crowds....6:30 rez. Party of 3 for the Miami Spice menu. Had no red wine by the glass that they offered on the M.S. menu....had to upgrade to a more expensive glass of wine. Had no goat cheese crochets! First thing on the menu! Waitress was quite apologetic. So we decided to head off to another restaurant in Brickell after each having a glass of wine....more than we should of paid! How could they be out of something they are advertising on their Miami Spice menu at 6:30 p.m.? Just thought it was weird!

The food was very good and the setting was gorgeous. The service, however, was horrible. We made a reservation for 1:30pm on a Saturday to sit outside on the patio. Ended up getting done with our morning errands so we went a little early to see if anything was available. The hostess told us nothing at the moment was available but as soon as something opened up she would let us know, but we could go ahead and start our bottomless mimosas at the bar. Fast forward 45 minutes later apparently there still isn’t a table ready and a now a different bartender than the one that was serving us has told us we need to order food or leave. We explain that we are waiting on a table and that the hostess told us to sit here and the manager approved of it. Fast forward again 1:30 (our original reservation time) finally rolls around we check in again with the hostess expecting to be seated, she says, nothing is still available but we’ve now seen 3 different parties of people come in after us without reservations and be seated outside. I bring this to the hostess attention and she says I o my have one table outside I can show you it if you’d like. We get seated and notify the bartender that was serving us we have moved outside and to transfer the tab over to the server. Several servers acknowledged us at the table but not a one came over and greeted us! We sat there for 15 minutes before one of us got and asked the hostess to send the server to the table, she said yes right away. Another 10 minutes passes and still no one. At this point we are very upset and finally get the manager. Apparently the servers assigned to our table “assumed” we had already been helped since we had glasses from the bar. But no silverware, water or menus were at the table? And the glasses we had were empty so someone could have at least asked if we wanted a refill. Anyhow the manager did comp our meal but it was still rather upsetting that it seemed like everyone else was receiving good service but us.

Service was very slow. It took almost 40 minutes for the waitress to bring our check. We had to ask 3 different employees before our check came. Waitress was unapologetic.

It was the first time we had gone, where nothing went right. Hard to get someone to assist, we made reservations through “Open Table” it was waiting list, they sat us in a table under an umbrella when it was raining, people were moving to other table freely and the management allowed it. Terrible service.

Great service!! The happy hour specials were perfect for an early dinner and drinks get-together. The tables overlooking the water are perfect. You can hear the Metro running by, but it’s sporadic (and it’s a city, so we didn’t mind it)- the view definitely makes up for it. The food was tasty and the server was great! He knew a lot about the beers on tap and could easily recommend things. Definitely would go back!

We thought the restaurant was very loud and noisy. We are over 50 years old. This restaurant is geared towards a much younger crowd. It is a Sports Bar which I didn’t realize when a made the reservation. I ordered a Bloody Mary and it was very watery.

We had a particularly bad experience after some bait and switch advertising by the restaurant. We had learned of an event publicized by the official American Social twitter account saying that ALL guests would receive a free tequila shot for every goal scored by the USA women's soccer team. We thought that would be pretty cool as some international friends were visiting that weekend and we wanted to show them a good time in Miami on a Sunday. After sitting down at our table and after the women's team had scored a goal, we inquired about a free tequila shot with our waitress. She said that the free tequila shots were specifically for the American Outlaw group who were celebrating inside the restaurant. We showed the waitress on twitter that the advertisement said "ALL" guests (not specific to the American Outlaw group, and she disappeared for a moment. The waitstaff then returned with some member of the American Outlaw group who admittedly said he was a "jerk" and that we could get a free tequila shot if we agreed to sign up for membership for $25/year. Of course we declined as 95% of the people at our table were internationals and had no interest in joining any U.S. fan club. The American Outlaw member then insulted all of us and walked off. We complained to the waitress and she apologized and said we could get a free shot if we just gave our email addresses to the bartender (?). We complied and she returned with our "shots of tequila" which were so watered down with grenadine it wouldn't even had been worth a second shot had the women's team scored again. The whole situation was poorly handled, and I wouldn't trust any events described by this restaurant on their social media outlets because they clearly use bait and switch techniques. Very disappointed. That's the last time we go to this restaurant.
