The Food was delicious, the steak was exactly what we ordered. The service was efficient and immediate. The restaurant inside and outside has the best views in Miami Beach. A delightful experience for our table.

They are not using Gorgonzola on the steak, it’s blue cheese, not the same.

We consistently have a great experience at Smith & Wollensky Miami, so it's an absolute favorite. The staff and food are always excellent, and you can't beat the views. They make us feel like we're at home and welcome, which isn't easy to find in Miami.

Steaks did not come out cooked as requested; wait staff was unconcerned with order being wrong; service was poor; S&W is not what it used to be.

Made a reservation and thought we would sit outside (this was the only reason for choosing this restaurant), but was told upon arrival that reservations are only for the dining room. The server was good. The food was fine. Our table was broken, but we dealt with it. Not the greatest experience.

I took my husband there for his birthday. I had the (2) 5oz South African lobster tails and he had the filet. Both meals were excellent. I will definitely eat here again. The wait staff was very attentive and very knowledgeable of the food on the menu.

Smith & Wollensky is one of our favorite restaurants, we’ve visited New York and Las Vegas sites and have never been disappointed. Our most recent visit to Miami was to celebrate a close friend’s birthday, and it was an incredible time. Our food was outstanding as usual, and we were well taken care of by our waiter, Jeffrey.

The food was bland, and too expensive for the quality. The server was dismissive, and the bartenders were ignoring my Sister. The one good thing was the surroundings on the water. The prime rib was nasty and fatty.

On a special request included in my reservation, I asked to be seated in and area near the water. as the Matre' Dame walked us past that area to a different table, I asked to be seated there as there was an available table and she said that was reserved. Moving on, that is my only complaint and to be honest, it started to sprinkle and my assigned table was protected from the rain yet still outside. The food was great as expected and expensive as expected as well. The portions are huge, so four of us split two steaks and we still had left-overs. This made the bill tolerable. A 22oz rib eye is a LOT for an average sized person. They have a great wine list with a good "by the glass" selection. Service was top-notch, there was a minor serving accident table-side and they could not have been more accommodating. We are locals and save this place for special occasions and it was special.

Atmosphere is fantastic, right on the channel watching the boats come and go. The service was wonderful. Drinks were great. We had one called an Old Cuban and another called a Cable Car. Both were great. There steaks were the big disappointment. I had the filet mignon. It had a distinct charcoal flavor the outside medium (as requested) on the inside but not flavorful or juicy . It did not taste much different than what we buy at the supermarket. My wife had a bone-in NY cut that was rather flavorless and was tough to cut. It was done as requested to a medium rare doneness. But we would have thought that there would be more flavor indicative of a superior cut of meat.
