Mediterranean
Once the name of The Surf Club’s restaurant prior to its reimagination, chosen for evoking the leisurely lifestyle of an Italian summer, Lido Restaurant at The Surf Club celebrates its place as the best oceanfront dining experience in the Miami Beaches, offering a menu of simple and authentic Mediterranean cuisine from sunrise to sunset, prepared by Executive Chef Antonio Mermolia. Delight in the largest selection of Champagnes in Miami and an exciting mixology program led by Head Bartender Valentino Longo at The Champagne Bar.

On Sundays, Lido’s sun-kissed terrace sets the scene for the La Dolce Vita Brunch with live music and Southern Italian traditions served tableside. The alfresco experience begins with an aperitivo and assortment of charcuterie, cheeses and hand-cut Crudo served family-style. To follow, Chef Mermolia shares his favorite specialty dishes, and for the main, Mediterranean takes on classic brunch fare. The finale, the Dulcis in Fundo dessert room.

We had a beautiful lunch outdoor on the terrace overlooking the beach area. The chilled pea soup was superb and we both enjoyed the rare tuna club. We look forward to returning and bringing out of town friends and family.

What a fantastic improvement over La Sirenuse (the former name of the restaurant). Same fantastic Chef, impeccable service, and incredible wine list, but the food is more accessible and relaxed. I love this place and it will be a frequent destination for me.

Perfect place to sit outside and enjoy the poolside and ocean views in luxury. The service was very attentive and the food was fresh. We had the farm salad with shrimp and the hamachi. Paired with a glass of rose it was the perfect light lunch with friends.

Very disappointing. the menu while varied has no rhyme or reason. Pizza and chilean sea bass? the food preparation was not inspired, not a foodie place. the space is beautiful a great place for ambiance and a drink. $30 for parking, it's a miami hype. the service perfunctory, food average.

The food was delicious the Servers were friendly and informative. The venue is Stunning, a picture out of Casa Blanca. My only disappointment is that we were seated, even though I had made reservations a month ahead of time, in the back of the restaurant by the Kitchen exit. It would have been a perfect evening if we didn't feel somewhat isolated from the beauty of the room. That said, I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back.

Absolutely terrible experience. I am still amazed how rude the staff at the door was of the four seasons. Did not open the door. Did not welcome us. And instantly told us we had to have a temperature check and then when I told him I was going to Lido restaurant and asked them where to go, they did not say anything other than ‘do you have a reservation’. Focused 100% on prescreening instead of welcoming. It was my worst Fourseasons experience ever and I go to the four seasons all the time. Would never go back!
When we got to the restaurant it was maybe 30% full but they gave us the worst table. I had to ask for a different table. In general I thought the attention to us was minimal at best. The weather was nice but very distracted. It took forever to get our food. I think we were there for 2 1/2 hours. When my wife asked for a side dish of pasta the waiter said he can’t do that. Why can’t you do that? Just charge us whatever you want to charge us but how stupid is it that he couldn’t put a small dish of pasta together? Beautiful restaurant for sure but just terrible service overall

Lido is a new name at the Four Seasons but the executive chef is still Antonio who is excellent and creative. The menu is a one pager, however covers a broad range. I had the endive salad, my wife the tuna tartare, both exceptional. We both had pasta as a main, which is unusual, and it was fresh and al dente. The pasta and all the bread I ate did not leave room for dessert, but we left full and happy. If you get a chance, ask for Mario as your server. He is knowledgeable and attentive. All this for a very upscale restaurant at what I consider modest prices.

My husband and I returned here after over a year since the Covid pandemic hit the US. We missed Le Siraneuse and finally decided to try the Lido in its place. We miss the main dining area and understand that the outdoor terrace makes sense during this times. Noted health safety measures in place and liked the social distanced table locations, and my request for preferred table was given to us. While the menu is very limited, we enjoyed our leisure Easter Sunday brunch. The Truffle pizza could use more flavor, as found it a bit bland. I was happy they still have my favorite Gavi di Gavi white wine. For my main entree I ordered the Branzino with grilled zucchini. The Branzino was prepared well and cooked just right, but found the grilled zucchini too overcooked and mushy in texture. The Chilean Sea Bass my husband ordered was perfectly panfried and seasoned with well flavored mash potatoes. Hope you will add seasonal dishes to give us reason to return as we still love this Surfside retro local.
