Entrée snapper was very small portion, not fresh and not even warm. Desert and bread were the only really outstanding items. Would not return.

Having had several excellent dining experiences here in the past several years, we hosted a dinner for family members visiting from Italy and for our nephew who lives in Coral Gables. The atmosphere is still beautiful and the service was outstanding (thanks Gil and Raul); however, the quality of the food did not meet our expectations. We had salads, two different types of house-made pasta, filet of sole and filet mignon, dessert and cappuccinos. The consensus was that the entrees were good but not great. It was "off season" in Miami, so perhaps the chef was on vacation or maybe it was just an off night.

The only recognizable Italian dish was spaghetti; there was a lot of fish meals. But, not enough traditional Italian food to be listed as Italian food. I loved the place, the staff, but the food was very restricted for me because I gave a fish allergy.

Upon arriving at Scarpetta the hostess asked if we had any dietary restrictions. I said I avoid gluten and she made note of it for our server. On his first stop by our table he ran down all the menu items (many!) that could be made gluten-free, including pasta, and said a basket of GF bread would be coming soon. The warm rolls were delicious! Later we indulged in chocolate cake with fresh mint ice cream, one of three desserts on the menu that could be made GF. I was tempted to come back every night so that I could try the tiramisu and panna cotta. I usually have to abstain from dessert. Everything we had was wonderful, the service was superb and they were extremely accomodating. I would highly recommend Scarpetta at the Fontainbleau!

We always love our experience at this restaurant because of the service and food and the gluten free options. But the noise and the kids it's too much. You should put family together and couples separate. It's not a family restaurant!

very nice location, friendly and obsequious staff, but very poor quality food disappointing especially compared to the high cost of the bill.
unfortunately confirms the evaluation of other restaurants we frequented in the north Miami area both disappointing.
Poor quality food and very high prices for poor food

I would highly recommend Scarpetta - Fountainbleau. As soon as you walk in you know you are going to enjoy a great dining experience. From the fresh oven baked bread to dessert. Service is top notch and the food is beyond delicious. The only issue I had was deciding exactly what I wanted to have ~ everything on the menu sounds and is delicious. Can't wait til I come back again. Needless to say you are in Miami so you dress to impress!

The spaghetti is ALWAYS a perfect choice. The appetizers, scallops and heirloom tomato and hurrays salad, were excellent. The lobster in the lobster tagliatelle was slightly over cooked. Dessert was delicious and the service was outstanding.

I gave a good review for the food, because it was expertly prepared and creative. The service was exceptional as well. The only drawback and I know this sounds harsh was the fact that there were too many babies out by the terrace. Now, I know that people on vacation would like to eat at the hotel's restaurants, but because the people are not concerned and the management cannot be the police, there is a tension for those without babies present like my wife and I. We get it, we have kids and grandkids, but there should be some accommodation for those without children so that we can enjoy one of the better meals in town without screaming babies, particularly around 8:30 pm. Otherwise, a wonderful restaurant.

Consistently one of the best meals in Florida.

Start with the Buratta, polenta, then on to the best spaghetti dish ever, ox tail tagliatelle, and duck foie gras ravioli

The perfect meal.

having been here about 2 years ago, when the downpour and lightning came it was an easy choice to dine here. got here early, began w cocktails, after a mellow one hour progressed to dinner. tuna tartare was great both in quality and plating the short rib pasta was good but could have used a bit more meat flavor snapper was excellent service was wonderful: professional and friendly Kudos to Jose (manager)
Chubba (captain) and Elliot (waiter) for making our dining experience wonderful

My favorite restaurant in Miami. It is better than NYC Scarpetta though I love that location too. Food is fantastic, service and wine excellent. Always a happy memory. I am addicted to their simple marinara spaghetti and polenta with mushrooms. And they are not pretentious but welcoming and down to Earth. Love this restaurant and will be back!

The ambience at Scarpetta was warm and elegant. The service was superb! The waiters were extremely attentive. The best meal I have had in years. We took on the chef’s tasting (5 course meal) and found every dish to be delicious and beautifully presented. The waiters were knowledgeable as to what each plate consisted of and how it was made. Our party was extremely impressed. It also happened to be a birthday celebration and the dessert brought to our table was very special. I highly recommend this restaurant!
