When we set outside there was a table that allowed more and more family on bikes to join and it felt invasive and loud so we had to move back inside

It was our engagement dinner however after notifying the restaurant absolutely nothing was done to make it special. Disappointed in this restaurant for not making it at all special. I will be reflecting this in all my reviews of this restaurant and make it known.

The steaks were done to perfection. We sat outside overlooking the water, so that added to the Miami experience.

Simply put for the money we spent the experience was "very" underwhelming. My wife and I go to higher end steak houses fairly regularly and don't mind spending a premium for a "fine dining" experience. That is not what we received at Smith and Wollensky! The location over looking South beach point was great but did not make up for the rest of the experience. When we sat we waited to be acknowledged by our waiter much longer than I would expect for this type of establishment. My beer came with a foreign object in it, my daughters friends Salmon was "raw" in the middle and once a new one was delivered we were just about done with entrees. The comped her entree but it was a case of too little too late. There was an event going on upstairs and the bass associated with very loud dance music was overbearing! The appetizers and side dishes were just ok! The steaks were cooked to order and of good quality but for the price they should be! Overall if you like fine dining steak houses try the following which have all provided a better dining experience for us recently! Wolfgangs, Ruth's Chris, Mortens, Council Oak, Abe & Louie's!

We chose Smith & Wollensky as our last night in Miami, because it felt like a special place. I had followed it for a long time in Instagram and remembered a fabulous dinner in Houston...
So the choice was made easily and coming from Germany we are not spoilt when it comes to Steaks.
We were delighted with everything... our waiter Victor, the quality of the food, the table by the window... a great experience for all.
Thank you Smith & Wollensky in Miami.... we may be back one day!

We mistakenly wore clothes for the outside Miami Beach weather, and the air conditioning was pretty high. The maitre d' accommodated us by putting us in an area which was slightly warmer and also quieter (caveat: when we left, we realized that the larger, main areas of the restaurant were fairly loud). The waiter was attentive without being either obsequious or pretentious (which sometimes happens in high end places). The martinis were perfectly dry and chilled, and the food was excellent.

We have been to this particularly Smith & Wollensky several times, and it is always very good to excellent. I will return the next time I am in Miami Beach, and I recommend it to others.

We’ve eaten out 4-5 times a week all over Miami Beach and Miami since we’ve been here in December. The wait service tonight at Smith and Wollensky was the least attentive of ANY restaurant we’ve been to all season. People all around us came later, ate the same courses we did, and left earlier. It almost seemed like we were deliberately being ignored. The food was all right, eating next to the water is very nice - frankly, it’s the reason we come here - and usually the wait staff is attentive. We were celebrating an anniversary tonight, and the poor service really put a damper on our celebration by the end of the meal. I’m not sure we’ll be back...

The steak was good not excellent, the man waiting our table was fine but when we first asked for a table for 2, the host was rude and said there was a 45 minute wait. I opened the Open Table app and booked a table immediately and someone in the staff had to show us a table. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Extremely expensive for what it was offering.
Will never come back.

We enjoyed our last day in Miami having lunch outside. The burger and chicken sandwich were awesome
But the fries are the best. Enjoy

Dined with group of 6 for husband's bday. Ordered steak for 2, medium. Steak was overcooked, dry and had no taste. Sent steak back to be told by matre d that different cut of steak would be served to us. Also told that they can't guarantee that the quality of their steaks is always consistent. New steak served still had no taste and tough. Furthermore, both men and womens bathrooms were filthy. Baskets overflowing with garbage, paper towels all over floor. Bathroom stalls filled with paper on floors and filthy. Completely unsatisfied with our experience and will not be recommending to any colleagues or friends.
