Cesar salad still good. But no longer complimentary. But it’s big enough for sharing.
Ambience is still good. Plumb colored walls, art work, bronze ceiling. You have to do something right to last decades.
But something is wrong in kitchen. We ordered a special: big cowboy steak with 2 lobster tail. It took 45 min to get entre. I was told it was because first try was overcooked. When the entre finally arrived the lobster was mushy from being overcooked and not hot. Also the kitchen put some green pesto on the lobster and in the drawn butter. What!
The steak was presliced and removed from bone without asking me. It was more medium than medium rare. And not hot due to preslicing.
The circulating manager? Asked me about meal and I told him about lobster. They took it and brought it back mushier and still not hot. He never returned.
They did comp the lobsters but who needs this when I can go to Ruth’s Chris and get consistent quality at better prices.

Ordered the crab cake it was very dry
My steak was under cooked and I had to send it back
The truffle Mac and cheese had no truffle flavor at all
No a stellar night for Christy’s

Celebrated my wife’s birthday and Christy’s was amazing. The food was delicious and service was awesome. It was our first time there. We will definitely return.

Very disappointing. This was the second Saturday in a row my wife and I had dinner there. The first Saturday was excellent. It was so good in fact that we both ordered the same entrees and sides. Unfortunately, my wife's potato au gratin was oily because the cheese wasn't cooked properly. My prime rib - king cut - was about 25% fat and so tough that it was nearly impossible to cut with a knife. It will be a good long while before we go back - if ever.

I really enjoyed my time at Christy's! Our waiter, Andrew was super attentive and recommended great options for us to try. Even when we had questions about how our meal was prepared, he talked to the chef to make sure we received exactly what we wanted.

Your hostess was a bit unpleasant. She sat us at a table and when we asked to be further from the walkway, she told us all the tables were reserved and it was not available. Another hostess had to help us. The server seemed to rush us. And when we decided to finish our bottle of wine at the bar. The same hostess came up to us and asked if we had been helped as if she didn’t know us. We love this restaurant, just didn’t seem like our local spot tonight.

Without a doubt this is the most consistent restaurant I have ever been to in my entire adult life. The entire experience is superior to any and all other restaurants. The atmosphere, service, food, menu, etc. is outstanding. We have visited Christy’s many times, usually on special occasions, and it has always been an incredibly wonderful night. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL.

Food was good. Service was acceptable notwithstanding the snarky comments from the waiter implying that we would only come for Miami spice menu. Clearly he felt that way because we did not order drinks or upgrade our meals. That was a real turn off. Made us feel unwelcome. Worst of all was the noise level our party of four had to yell at the top of our lungs to make ourselves heard by the others at our table. The acoustics are beyond terrible. Unfortunately, it was not a good experience

We love this place, and especially enjoyed the great value we received during Miami Spice. The lamb chops were delectable, everyone else in my party had filet and loved it. The caesar salad was distinctive and delicious, and the key lime pie...an incredible nutty crust, never had anything like it! Our friends had not been before and were delighted to find such a great place, we will all be coming back for special occassions and romantic dates.

The lamb chops were fabulous! I recommend using Miami Spice for great value. The restaurant was noisy and the service too quick. We ate 3 courses in an hour! Everything we ate was delicious.

Food and service was excellent, as usual. Great place for a quiet lunch on a Friday. I was very disappointed at finding they didn’t have the Miami Spice Menu available for lunch. I would have opted for a different place if I had known.

Wonderful restaurant! Went there for an anniversary dinner/date night. Great food, unbelievable service, and even tailored our dessert to say "Happy Anniversary". Highly recommend / will be back many many times. Their Caesar salad is delicious, the Filet Mignon was good (not the best I've ever had, but everything else was so great). Filet Mignon sauce was divine. The brussel sprouts were the best I've ever had (and I've tried them literally everywhere I've went). The hot chocolate brownie dessert and key lime pie were delicious. The cocktails were delicious. I had a margarita, and my boyfriend had the La Melon Martini.

We went for the Miami Spice event. Expecting a five star restaurant, we have to wait about 20 minutes to have the wine, another 30 minutes for the starters and another 30 mins for the entres. Waiters were very nice and food was good. I think the problem was they were short on staff.

The reason for the rating relates to our negative experience with the maitre d, Chris. We were taken to a table in a corner next to a large noisy group. When I expressed unhappiness with the table, Chris was very put out and asked me to ‘calm down’. Then he went on and on telling me why we could be given another table. We said we would wait and after 15 minutes we were taken to a much better table.

Our server Les was very good as was the dinner. Pricing was very good as we order from the Miami Spice menu. Very happy with the service and dinner.

Except for the unfortunate beginning with Chris it was a wry nice dinner. Chris should be doing what he can to make the experience as good as possible. Unfortunately that was not the case.

Have never been here before. Met an old friend who was visiting there for dinner. We chose this restaurant because we are both big steak guys and always dine only at steakhouses.
What a disappointment.
Both his rib eye and my NY strip were chewy and bland. Halfway through the meal we both agreed that the steaks were sub par. Big dissapointment

Fabulous restaurant, my 2nd time dining here and planning on returning for my birthday dinner. The old Cuban cocktail is amazing. Certainly must try the Alaska dessert, super tasty and amazing presentation. Miami Spice menu is quite appealing as well. Ohh and please try the Cesar salad spectacular.

Christy's is still Christy's. We came for Miami Spice and it was very very good. The Caesar salad, rack of lamb, key lime pie and the brownie were all delicious. Service was elegant and attentive, ambiance was exactly as it has always been, very men's club and old style, but so comfortable to be there. Just a very nice, very satisfying dining experience. Of course we'll go back. We always do.
